$39 BELL SLEEVE SWEATER













Hey y'all!

We finally made it -- its Friday! *insert praise hand emoji* Holy cow I am so pumped. Today I just have two classes this afternoon and then I am headed home for the weekend. Nate and I are going to my house, and then tomorrow we are actually headed to Stillwater, Oklahoma to watch K-State play OSU. One of my cousins goes to OSU and we are turning the game into a mini family reunion so its going to be a fun day. 

In other news, this sweater is a total must for fall -- I had to share! It is under $40 and I just love everything about it. First off, it is sooo soft and cozy. Second, I love the mock turtleneck look. Next, the color is to die for! It also comes in a few other colors. Lastly...the best part of all? THE BELL SLEEVES. Yes y'all. Bell sleeve sweaters are a big trend for fall so I had to share an affordable option if you want to hop on the trend! 

Also, these crushed velvet loafers are another obsession of mine lately. They are under $25 which is another steal of you ask me! I love the color and I think loafers are also making a comeback this season -- so easy to pair with a simple sweater like I did in this post!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

VELVET + LEATHER














Hey y'all!

I mentioned earlier this week how I loved pairing different fabrics/textures together to contrast them and make an outfit more interesting. This outfit is another example of how I do it!

For starters, I am wearing this velvet tee which is something I am obsessed with lately. I love how this incorporates the velvet trend, but its also so unique. I think it would be really cute to pair this tee with a sportier, athleisure look as well. This tee is under $15 so definitely get your hands on it!

I paired the tee with a leather skirt. I love the velvet + leather combo! I think the pink helps to tone down the edge just a bit, but its still really cute and fun. I finished off the look with some jeweled earrings, my monogram necklace, and some snakeskin booties!

Thanks so much for reading y'all!

$25 CHENILLE SWEATER












Hey y'all!

Anyone else saying "Thank goodness its Wednesday?" Cause I sure am! I have been so busy getting tests and projects finished up before the break next week. Like I have mentioned already...I am seriously so so so excited for the break -- I definitely need it especially after this week.

Anyways -- I HAD to share this adorable sweater with y'all. I posted about it already on Instagram several times, but I figured this sweater was worth of an entire blog post. It's that good y'all! Its under $25 so definitely a great price for fall sweaters. It comes in four other colors as well, and the chenille fabric is a huge trend this fall. Its so soft so trend or not, its definitely worth picking up this sweater!

To play with textures, I paired the sweater with these adorable velvet booties! I love the color combo and pairing multiple textures and fabrics together to create a unique look. These jeans are also my absolute favorite black distressed denim if you are in the market -- currently on sale for $20!

Hope you all enjoyed this post and have a great day!

GIFT GUIDE FOR GUYS






Hey y'all!

Happy Tuesday. Today I wanted to share another gift guide for y'all. I always have the hardest time coming up with good presents for the guys in my life. Especially when I am trying to shop for my fiance! So, I thought I would share a gift guide for guys extra early this season so that you can get started searching for that perfect gift!

First off, I shared a few go-to items that I think make perfect gifts. First off -- you really can't go wrong with a Patagonia pullover. I know my fiance has a ton of Patagonia stuff, but I love the quilted look of this jacket. Also, that color is my absolute favorite! I think this jacket would be a great option and something a little unique.

Next, I think a new pair of sneakers always makes for a great gift. I actually bought Nate the pair shown above for his bday and I think they are really cool. Again, I love the forest/hunter green :)

I also included a few basic items like a nice leather wallet or a baseball hat. I think either of those are something that would make a perfect gift! And then there's a few "fun" items or just kind of more random ones -- I think that portable thermos is so cool looking. I also love the look of the bottle opener and I think any guy could appreciate that and it would look cool on the wall in a man cave! 

Lastly, I thought I would share one of my favorite go-to gifts when you want to do something a bit more sentimental or if you're on a budget. Personally, I love photos, and I love buying a cool frame and getting a picture framed as a gift. Its definitely not something that a guy would probably buy for himself, but if you put a cute picture of you with your loved one in it, I know they'd love that! I have mounted a photo on white paper and then written a note around the photo as well and its just fun to give a more sentimental gift sometimes too!

I hope this helps if you are stumped on what to get your guy! Thanks for reading and talk to you in my next post.

WHITE FURRY JACKET












Hey y'all!

Happy Monday!

Hope your week is off to a great start. I had a busy weekend but yesterday I got to relax a bit, so I feel rejuivenated and ready to tackle this week. It is so crazy to think that after this week I have a whole week off for Thanksgiving break. I am sooo excited for that and cannot wait to go home and spend that time with my family!

Ok so about today's look. I have to say that I am mildly obsessed with this faux fur jacket. I have already worn it a few times since I got it and I just can't get enough! I love all things faux fur but I just love how perfect this little white jacket is. I love it paired with the all black look I have on -- I just think it stands out and makes a statement! I paired the jacket with my favorite turtleneck tee (so soft, under $20 and absolutely perfect for layering!) and also my favorite distressed denim. Lastly -- black booties, this little black beret, and my fav round sunnies top off the look!

Anyways, I hope y'all enjoyed this look! This was definitely one of my favs as of lately :)

Talk to you in my post tomorrow! (PS its another giftguide so get pumped!)
