OOTD // The Perfect Pair of Riding Boots

When you are dressing casual this fall. I highly suggest you have a go to pair of riding boots to throw on. You want them to be classic yet stylish and casual yet polished. I honestly think the company that makes the best boots is Frye. I got these beautiful boots during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and now that it’s October, I am so happy I did. They are the perfect go to pair when I’m running errands, going to lunch, or picking pumpkins (I can’t wait to do that!) Start shopping around for the right pair of riding boots for your wardrobe and budget!

Have a great weekend! xoxo

OOTD // Mixing Plaid and Fur

If you have a million pieces of plaid in your closet, it’s okay I’m right there with you. I never really was a plaid person honestly, but there’s something about it this year that has drawn me to it. Maybe it’s because there are so many more varieties in colors and shapes, more than just your traditional button down shirt. Case and point, this dress. It’s the perfect piece to wear right now while the weather is between warm and freezing. Once it does get cooler, I will most likely wear it with tights. I also never need a reason to wear a fur vest. It always is a great addition to any casual look to add a little extra style. Seriously, you need to try the fur vest and plaid combo…you will love it I promise.

Fall Trend du Jour // Suede and Leather Fringe

It’s the trend that is good through all seasons: fringe. In spring/summer, we see it typically in a light weight material and in many different colors. For fall, however, it is most common to see fringe in suede and leather in neutral tones such as black, brown, and grey (though this season we are seeing A LOT of burgundy as well.) These pieces tend to have a more western feel where as in the warmer seasons come across a little more 70’s hippie. Wear it on your shoes, bags, jackets, or wherever. Fringe is going to be around for the long haul so I truly think you should invest in some stellar pieces.

OOTD // Capes, Fringe, and Fedora

I have secretly (actually probably not so secretly) have become obsessed with capes for fall. I may or may not have 3 different colors/patterns and I will probably even still buy more.  I love how effortless they are with such sophistication. And who doesn’t love the idea of wearing what feels (but doesn’t look like) a big blanket? I especially love when they have a little fringe detail along the bottom like this one does.

Grey has to be my favorite color to wear in fall, if you consider it a color that is. I just feel like there are so many variations and it goes with everything and is a little less heavy than black all the time. My grey felt fedora is a perfect counterpart to this outfit. This hat along with my fringe boots encompasses everything I love about this season.

Until next time, xoxo

Manicure Monday // Celebrating Fall

I am super excited that it’s officially fall…I mean I will definitely miss summer before I know it, but October is one of my favorite months. Since I am so stoked about the change in season, I thought my manicure should reflect that. I chose to do the majority of my nails in a toffee-like color, super neutral but very elegant. I then decided to do something that I don’t normally do with my manicures, but to celebrate fall I decided to do a gold glitter accent nail on my ring fingers. I felt like the two colors complimented each other nicely and also reminded me a lot of the changing leaves.

If you want to try similar shades of polish try Essie’s “Over The Knee” (toffee) and “Rock at the Top” (gold.)

Happy fall! xoxo

OOTD // Windowpane Whimsy

It’s been uncharacteristically warm for fall, so I was super excited to wear my new windowpane print shell that was just released to Target. It’s part of the Adam Lippes collaboration and it’s totally up my ally. With tons of lines and color blocking, the collection is so chic. I can’t wait to wear it in cooler weather with a leather jacket over it. I also love that it’s longer in the back which helps camouflage my big behind! Black accents and a red lip balance this simplistic outfit.

If you haven’t shopped the Adam Lippes collection yet, what are you waiting for? Get it before it runs out!
