6 FALL LOOKS TO RECREATE

Happy Friday, friends!

In case you didn't know...today is the first official day of fall! To celebrate, you can find me drinking pumpkin spice coffee and making pumpkin spice pancakes -- and I thought I would share some of my favorite fall looks from my past posts!


Blanket scarf + how to.
This post is one of my favorite posts that I have shared on the blog! I love blanket scarves, and although they have been around for quite some time, they are still in for this season too. I love how warm and cozy they are and its really easy to make a complete outfit with a blanket scarf! I linked a few cute options for this season to shop, as well as some simple dresses to pair them with like I did in this post!


This look is sooo old and the photos are embarrassing looking back now...but it is still something I would wear throughout the fall season! I love floppy hats always...and pairing them with cowl neck sweaters and tunics is a simple way to get a trendy fall look!


For those of y'all still experiencing temperatures like we are in Kansas, this fall look is one you can actually recreate now and not sweat to death! I love the look of this simple striped t-shirt dress paired with a utility vest. It is an easy way to look put together without having to try to hard, and the fun sneakers make it more casual if you're just headed to run errands or to grab coffee. 


This is another look that is really easy to recreate for fall and one I will be wearing once it cools off a bit. Flare jeans are still a trend this fall, and pairing them with a simple sweater and a floppy hat makes for a laid back, chic look!




Another favorite of mine from last season is this cozy cardigan + graphic tee combo! I love graphic tees, and they pair perfectly with your favorite oversized cardigan. I especially love the color of this one! This look is perfect for laid back fall days but is still cute and comfortable.



I hope you all enjoyed this little round up post and have a great weekend! Drink a PSL and savor that fall is officially here!

FALL TREND ALERT: CROPPED FLARE JEANS












Hey y'all!

Today I wanted to share a big trend + give y'all an idea on how I style it! Cropped flare pants have been all the rage lately and are a great item to transition into fall. I love the cropped cut, and this black pair is oh so flattering! This pair is under $35 and they fit so great! I love the frayed hem so much. I got them in a petite size so they fit my shorter self even better.

For a bit of a bohemian touch, I love the jeans paired with a printed, swingy blouse and my favorite cutout booties. However, I think they would be cute with a lace top, a simple sweater, and therefore could be incorporated into any gal's fall wardrobe! This trend is a must-have. I truthfully didn't think it would be very flattering on me since I am shorter, but I actually really love it. If you're worried about the cut making you look shorter, just try wearing heels or taller booties to give you some added height. :)

I hope you all enjoyed this little how-to for this fall trend! Let me know if you would like to see more posts explaining how to wear certain styles for fall and I would be happy to share more content like this!

GINGHAM CULOTTE ROMPER










Hey y'all!

Today I am sharing the second outfit I shot while I was in Nashville. We arrived at our Airbnb and got ready quickly and headed out for dinner and exploring, so I only was able to snap a few photos but I had to share this gingham jumpsuit with y'all!

I looove the culottes trend -- I wasn't sure ab it at first. I definitely didn't know if I could pull it off since I am shorter but I love this jumpsuit so much. It is currently on sale for $16 which is a total steal! The gingham print is so cute & trendy, and I love the off the shoulder/cold shoulder detailing. The fit is TTS -- although I think it would look better on someone taller than me so that the culotte leg would hit higher up.

I also had to mention a few of the affordable accessories I am wearing in this post! I carried this backpack around town, which is under $30 and was great for traveling because I could fit more stuff in it than my normal crossbody bags. I also love the sunglasses I am wearing -- they are under $10 and such a fun 90s trend! Lastly, this adorable bandana neck scarf is under $4. All of the pieces I am wearing are linked in the widget above if you want direct links to shop them!

I hope you all enjoyed this post. My full Nashville post + a little video montage of our trip will be coming to the blog on Monday!

SUEDE + COWBOY BOOTS













Hey y'all!

Happy Wednesday -- we are already halfway through the week so cheers to that! Hope you are having a great start to your day. :)

Today I wanted to share the first of a few outfits I shot while traveling in Nashville this weekend! I have a couple more posts, including a summary of my favorite things we did/saw/ate while in the city so definitely be on the lookout for that post in the days to come.

In the meanwhile, this look was what I wore on our full day out. We did a lot of fun things, including going to the football game, hence the cowboy boots! Although wearing cowboy boots 24/7 would not be out of the norm for a general trip to Nashville. I got these boots as a present my senior year of high school and have gotten my fair use out of them for sure!

I also wore this adorable suede dress that I just love -- mine is actually from last season, but I linked a really similar and cute one available this season! I love suede and this dress is so comfy and was perfect for walking around/being out for literally 15+ hours that day! I love the mix of browns with the suede and my boots too :) I also wore some purple tassel earrings to rep my college -- but you can't really see them in the pics!

I hope you all enjoyed this post. I can't wait to share all the details about Nashville because I totally fell in love with the charm of the city, even in the short time I was there. Thanks for reading y'all!

BELL SLEEVED ROMPER















Hey y'all!

Happy Tuesday!

Today I wanted to share a this fun little piece with y'all -- I found this adorable romper and I thought it was the perfect fall piece! I love all the details -- the deeper colors, the two-toned fabrics, the floral...all of the above! Its under $28 and would be perfect for a gameday, a date night, or for any fall wardrobe staple!

In this look, I paired the romper with some booties and a floppy hat -- two other staples of mine for the fall season! I've mentioned these booties so often on my blog/insta so once again y'all definitely need them if you haven't noticed how often I wear them already!

I hope you all are having a great Tuesday! I didn't realize how much I had to do this week so I feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off. But I am making the most of it and trying to enjoy every moment because I know this year will be gone before I know it. I was looking ahead at my planner at things that were coming up, and this semester is going to just fly by!

Enough of a ramble...I hope you all enjoyed and thanks so much for reading!
