Early Fall Essentials

IMG_0839IMG_0858IMG_0871IMG_0834IMG_0846

Hello everyone, Happy Friday!  I hope you all saw Wednesday’s post – if you haven’t yet make sure you enter the giveaway!  It’s been such a pleasure sharing my life and style with you all over the past three years, I can’t wait to keep doing more of it!

Today’s post features all of my must have pieces for September and the early fall weather.  A heavy midi skirt like this crochet one in a fall color such as olive (though this one comes in five more colors here and here!)  My trusty denim jacket will continue to grace my outfits as the temps dip colder at night, and these leopard print pumps have started to work their way back into my outfits at last!

Fall Fabrics

IMG_0756IMG_0732IMG_0718IMG_0737

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Lately I have been scoping out the fall fashion scene, so I took a look back into my closet to see what items I always wear during autumn months.  Leather and denim are two staples that I can’t imagine going through October without!  Paired together, they make a chic combination that will transition well from cool August days (with sandals) into colder days with a pair of ankle boots!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Begins!

 

Well, it’s that time of year already!  Early Access to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today!  I have a few posts broken down by category, so make sure to keep checking in throughout the sale!  If you don’t have a Nordstrom Card, you can apply for one here or wait until July 21st when public access begins!  I have a Nordstrom Debit card and not only do I get great rewards from the clothes and beauty products I buy (last mentioned here), but I also love having early access to this amazing sale!  If you’re worried about having a credit card tempt you or having to pay interest rates, the debit card is a really great option that they offer.  The first time I ever shopped the sale was when my dad took me to early access seven years ago!  Like father, like daughter!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here’s how it works.  Instead of your usual sale, where you get things at the end of the season that haven’t yet sold, the Anniversary Sale marks down new items (specifically for Fall, but there are plenty of new summer items as well).  In August, the prices will go back up.  It’s a great opportunity to buy sweaters, leather jackets, boots, and more at a sale price, and then be able to wear them all throughout the fall and winter!

I’ve created a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tab up on my navigation bar so throughout the sale you all can easily access my picks and thoughts on everything!  There are nearly 50 pages of items for women’s sale alone, so I’ve taken the time to sift through them all and break them down by category so you don’t have to!

Let me know what you want to see more of, and what your favorite items in the sale are! Happy Shopping!

Thanksgiving Dress

img_6989img_6968img_6992img_6966

Welcome back guys!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  My sister brought me along to the ski and snowboard expo with her and it got us a bit excited for winter sports and holiday celebrations.

This Zara find is the perfect dress for Thanksgiving.  The plaid is perfectly festive, the sleeves keep things trendy, and is loose enough that no one can give you a hard time for that fourth slice of pie.  I was feeling ambitious and tried to bare my already-winter-white legs this weekend, but I also think this short little number would look just as good with tights and booties!

Outfit Details – Dress: Zara | Boots: Steve Madden | Purse: Sole Society (similar here) | Earrings: Banana Republic (similar here) | Lipstick: NARS ‘Catfight’ | Lipgloss: Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Fudge’

Fall in Providence

img_6827img_6913img_6817img_6912img_6828

Happy Monday y’all!  I hope your week is off to a good start so far.  Today I’m sharing a few pics I snapped in Providence over the weekend.  This blazer from Zara is one of my all time favorites.  It’s about five years old and it comes back year after year when the leaves start to fall, because the only more quintessential New-England-in-fall style than tweed just might be elbow patches.

Make sure you guys stop by again tomorrow-I’ll be sharing my favorite things to do in Providence for a special Tuesday post!

Back to Basics

img_6764 img_6782 img_6765

Happy Friday guys!  Hope you all had a great week!  Mine was pretty low key, mostly relaxing after a very eventful and busy two weeks of traveling and trying to catch up on some work.  When I have all sorts of things on my plate, this color combo never fails me.  Black and olive with a touch of denim transcend seasons in my book, and I took my favorite date night outfit from summer to fall just by switching out the tank for a sweater and adding some tights and booties.

Fall Obsessions

img_6581img_6518img_6569img_6608img_6583img_6590img_6562

Hey guys!  Welcome back.  It has been a hot second since I posted around here, but I’m so happy to be back with lots of content for you.  Today’s look combines several of my favorite fall pieces.  This hat and heels have been great in all of fall’s varying weather.

I picked up this backpack for my trips and it has been everything I wanted it to be and more.  It’s big enough to fit a surprising amount in it but it isn’t too bulky and adds a perfect touch of fashion to a functional style.

A white blouse is my favorite way to look clean when I maybe don’t feel the same way.  After a long day of taking a bus to meet my mom in Manhattan and then driving down to Philadelphia, I only had ten minutes to freshen myself up before heading to a concert.  I paired this white blouse with Chelsea boots and skinny jeans to make myself look a lot nicer than the day of travel had me feeling!
