Striped Cardis and Elbow Patches

Cardigan C/O Fancy Frills Boutique // Blouse // Denim (Fave Brand!) // Booties (Sold Out) Similar Here // Handbag // Watch // Bracelet (Charm Here) // Lips: "Stripdown" and "Fleshpot"
Absolutely loving this striped cardi from Fancy Frills Boutique, then again, I love pretty much everything from their shop. Even more than that, I love that they are always running their deals on, which makes it super easy to find something cute from their shop on major sale!   I thought you should know this because they totally have great stuff. I highly recommend shopping their pieces. I paired this with my favorite olive color to really play up the fall tones. Loving this color scheme together. It's an easy look to throw on for class, errands, and lunch. Comfortable too!

I hope that you all had a great weekend! We finally stayed home, did some stuff around the house, had our friends over for barbecue and the game, and did some cleaning. We needed a weekend like that. Did you guys do anything fun?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

The Vest You Need for Fall and Winter

Vest C/O // T- Shirt (Similar) // Leggings (Similar Here ) // Boots // Earrings 
Happy Monday!!

I'm not going to lie, I've been in the worst mood today, and even though I'm more than aware of it, I can't seem to pull myself out of it. Have you ever been like that? It just seems that everything that happens is so amplified, and I keep noticing the worst things that happen, instead of letting them go, I'm like harping on them. I've begun to annoy myself. I'm not sure if most of you know, but I live with my sister, and I work with m husband and two other best friends. The reason I was telling you this because whenever I have days like this, I text all of them to "warn" them. They think it's so funny, and I always feel bad. Haha! Anyways!!

This weekend we went camping in Mammoth with my husband, sister, dog (:)) , parents and my brother. We had THE BEST time. Of course, it wasn't like "real" camping, we were in an RV, but I had a blast. We hiked, we played board games, and we got caught in a storm. It was so much fun. I decided to shoot what I wore out there in case any of you wanted some inspo for outdoor adventures during the cooler months. My favorite thing was this vest I got from Fancy Frills Boutique. I shop their collections all of the time. They always have the cutest stuff. What attracted me most to this piece was the length. It comes below the hips, so it's super flattering to wear with skinny jeans and leggings. It's also completely lined with fleece, so it keeps you so warm. On this day it was around 40 degrees, and I didn't have to add a coat until the sun went down. It's under $40 too, and for such good quality, that price is a steal!!!

My top favorites right now are:

1. Striped Sweater
2. Floral Tunic (Obsessed!!)
3. Ruffle T- Shirt
4. Floral Dress

I highly recommend checking them out. They're also on a ton, so that means you can score their cutest pieces for a fraction of the price.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoyed today's look!

Cozied Up in Flannel

Flannel Shirt C/O // Sweater // Leggings (Old) Similar Here and Here // Boots (Old) New Styles Here and Here // Handbag // Sunglasses // Earrings // Watch // Necklace // Bracelet (Charms Here , Here and Here) // Gold Bracelet
Happy Friday!!!

So excited for this weekend to be here because my family and I are going camping. Yay! It's been so long since I've been camping,  I can't wait to go. (Well, we are going in an RV, and Aaron keeps making fun of me for calling it camping because he said it doesn't count with our "hotel on wheels", anyways!)  So, our weekend trip is what inspired today's look because I packed this for this weekend. I wanted flat riding boots for walking around and exploring , leggings to be comfortable and casual, and the cutest , comfiest and softest top ever for relaxing (and keeping warm!! We're going somewhere that I consider cold lol). I found this amazing top at Grace and Lace Boutique. You see me always bragging about their clothing on my blog, and it's for good reason. Their pieces are always amazing quality and great for everything. I have so many of their items in my closet, and I shop there all the time. This top has been one of my favorite finds so far, though because we all know I'm a sucker for flannels and casual pieces, so this fits that bill. I loveee it, and I can't say that enough.

Anyone have any fun plans for this weekend?  Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Casually Comfortable

Sweater C/O // Basic Tee // Denim: J Brand (Similar Here and Here ) // Booties (Old) Similar Here and Here // Handbag: Givenchy , Large Antigona (Similar Here) // Necklace // Earrings // Lips: "Stripdown" and "Fleshpot" // Watch // Bracelet (Charm Here , Here and Here) // Ring (Old) Similar Here // 
Comfiest cardi ever! It's so unbelievably soft, and I love the fit and color of it. The ultimate sweater for fall and winter. I've been wearing it around the house, out to dinner, and running errands. It's just so cute, and has an amazing price tag. It's under $40, but selling out so quickly, so I recommend you snagging it up while you can. I found it at Pineapple Lace Boutique. They just got a ton of new arrivals, also. I loveeee their pieces. So unique and so much to choose from, I'm always browsing their site. In regard to my sweater, I love this cream color to pair with all neutrals and browns. It's so feminine and pretty looking on. I paired it with my favorite pair of denim. I finally caved and bought my first pair of J Brand denim, and I'm obsessed. They're totally worth the price. I esepcially love that they hold their shape even after multiple wears. They don't stretch out or anything. I just bought a second pair. I know come January when I go back to school, I'll be living in my jeans, so I'm stocking up in the mean time on pairs that I can rely on . 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Multi-Seasonal Pieces

Dress // Denim Jacket (Old) Similar Here (Really wanting to get this one) // Scarf (Old) Similar Here , Here  and Here // Heels (Faves!) // Handbag: Louis Vuitton (Similar Here and Here ) // Lips: "Viva Glam V " // Ring // Bracelet (Charm Here and Here ) // Watch
I wanted to share a look today that I swear by during transitional seasons. Fall is especially difficult during the beginning weeks because in the morning it's "freezing" and by our lunch breaks it's back to warm (or hot if you live in Southern California with me lol). With that comes the problem of how do I make an outfit that functions for the entire day?

One of my favorite styling tips (and must have closet staples) is my denim jacket. I wear this thing every single season, and to me, it's the best addition to a dress. I pair it with my maxi dresses, my sundresses, and even here with my work dress. It keeps me a bit warmer, and I always get a structured , cropped style to it also looks put together. Adding a scarf with it will really add that warm and cozy touch, but if you keep it tied neat and not bulky looking, then it will also give you that "put together" look. 

You can, of course, use different styles of a cropped and fitted jacket. You can go with a moto jacket (in leather or suede) or even a cropped blazer, and all of these options look great with a neatly tied scarf (or infiinty scarf) , and yet still great enough to wear into work. Once midday approaches, just remove the layers, and you're back to your dress. The other great thing about this is you can continue to use your "summer" dresses into mid to deep fall instead of having to tuck them away so soon. I always hate that once September hits I feel like I need to start putting items like this back when I love them so much.  This dress was a find from Lauren James Boutique, by the way, and they have an adorable selection of (self-proclaimed) preppy clothing. I love their pieces, and they're great quality too. 

I hope that you have been having a good week so far. Anyone shopping the Shopbop sale? I've been browsing, I'll be sure and share some of my picks too!
