Fall Accessories Under $100

Tuesday, September 16, 2014







Sharing some fun fall accessories today -- and they are all under $100! I'm all about affordable, especially when it comes to accessories that are seasonal. There are lots of great items, like statement necklaces, scarves and bags, available in darker colors and thicker fabrics -- perfect for the chillier weather.

Weekly Wish List

Friday, September 12, 2014




1. BB Dakota Fur Vest - This vest caught my eye right away. I love the draping and the price is unreal. 

2. Kendra Scott Ellie earrings - I've got the Elle earrings and now I want a pair of the Ellie studs. These neutral sparkly ones are gorgeous. 

3. Essie in Velvet Voyeur - I love this fall color, along with the rest of the burgundy family. 

4. JCrew button down - I like how this material is thicker than regular silk. Also, it's long so I could wear it with leggings. 





Happy Friday!

Hunter Green Inspiration

This is already my favorite color for the fall. I recently purchased these jeans from JCrew Factory and plan on getting lots of wear out of my quilted vest from Banana Republic




What color are you loving for the fall?

How to Wear Riding Boots

Ways to Wear Riding Boots







I love when it's time to start wearing boots in the fall. I've tried all kinds of boots over the years but riding boots are by far my favorite. They are sturdy, yet comfortable and look good with so many things. Here are some ways to wear them:



1. With a sweater dress - just put on a pair of cute colored tights and a long or short sleeve sweater dress and you're good to go!


2. With an oversized sweater - pair it with skinny jeans or leggings and it will be a cute and comfortable outfit for chilly weather. (A sweatshirt would work too!)


3. With a flannel - this is the stereotypical fall outfit, but it always works, no matter the occasion!


4. With a flouncy skirt - grab a silk blouse or long sleeve tee and tuck it into the skirt and the boots will tie it all together.

Fall Wardrobe Staples

Can't wait to start wearing all of these very soon. Loving burgundy and hunter green for jeans, flats and tops. Also relying on lots of staples like basic skinny jeans and black and gray tees for layering.

5 Things I'm Looking Forward to This Fall

Monday, September 8, 2014




1. Football - In my mind, football is the best sport and really the only sport I get excited about watching. I live in my Tom Brady jersey every Sunday and follow all NFL news during each week of the season. I'm also a converted Oklahoma Sooners fan and have so much fun watching the games at our bar, McGreevys. Side note: football game day snacks are my favorite!




2. Sweatshirt & sweater & boot weather - After living with only one AC unit all summer, I'm so ready for the temps to cool down so I can wear sweaters (thinking about buying this one!) & sweatshirts. I also can't wait to wear my Tory Burch boots again. As much as I like sandals, boots always make me feel like my look is much more pulled together. 



3. Pumpkin and apple everything - Pumpkin coffee and donuts are now at Dunkin! I love how many stores end up carrying pumpkin items and each year I end up trying something new. Being from New England, I also go apple picking every year. It's a tradition here to go apple picking and then make an apple recipe like apple crisp or apple pie.



4. Fall foliage - The changing colors of the leaves is beautiful! There's no better place to see the foliage than New England!



5. Crockpot meals - As the weather cools down, it's time to turn the crockpot on. Chili, soups and meals like pulled pork are my favorites.




What are you most looking forward to this fall?
