Fall Basics Under $50

When it comes to fall I am all about basics!
Fall is all about cozy layers, so you need good basics that you can mix and match and easily layer up. One of my favorite things to layer is a simple black cami and black leggings. These  Modbod leggings are nice and thick and not see through at all.  The cami is the perfect length to layer over leggings and cover your booty--this is a must when wearing leggings!! You can literally wear anything over this combo and be good to go. I paired them with a  cozy cardigan which is on sale buy one get one free right now. I've worn this cardi so much lately--it is amazing. To dress it up a little, I paired it with my fav OTK boots from last season and topped it off with my fav  black hat. I am a little hat obsessed in the fall--they just make a look that much better!

Fall Pattern Mixing: Plaid & Stripes

Happy Friday!
Pattern mixing is always so fun--especially in the fall! Plaid and stripes is one of my favorite combos. I wore this look during our trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We stopped at Starbucks (pumpkin spice latte please!) then headed to Cades Cove to drive the scenic loop. The views were unbelievable!! It was nice and chilly in the mountains so I layered up every chance I could get. This  plaid scarf is definitely a fall favorite and looks good layered over everything. My  striped tee is on sale right now for only $14!! This outfit will be on major repeat this fall.

Edgy Fall Outfit

Over the last couple of weeks I've had the chance to test out the Luv.it app. It's a new fashion app (launching soon) that allows you to discover new brands and shop them with a click of a button. They also offer cash back on every purchase AND when you inspire others shop your shared and luved looks. While using the app I have come across so many great brands and new styles that I'm dying to try. I found this Eleven Paris dress while surfing the app and had to have it. It's technically navy and white--it's so dark I honestly thought it was black until my husband pointed out that it looked navy in the sun. The stripes totally look black and white when paired with black leather accessories.

Camo Vest Day To Night

Who else is camo obsessed this season?!?
This is easily one of my favorite fall trends and such an easy print to incorporate into your wardrobe. When I saw this YMI camo vest I knew I needed it in my closet--plus it's only $33. Such a steal!! There are a lot of camouflage vests and jackets out this year but most of them are oversized--which doesn't work for me at all. I'm very petite so oversized jackets just swallow me up--not cute! This one fits so perfectly and can easily be dressed up or down for lots of wear.

4 Easy Halloween Costume Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner!!
Whether you're passing out candy, going to a party, or trick-or-treating with your kids, it's always fun to get dressed up and have a good time. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays and I've always loved dressing up. I used to plan my outfit months in advance and couldn't wait to go trick-or-treating! My go-to costume was usually a hippie with shredded flares and a giant peace sign shirt--I'm pretty sure I wore it 3 years in a row! But as I've gotten older when I dress up for Halloween it's always a last minute idea and I just accessorize outfits I already have. So this year I thought it would be fun to put together 4 cute and easy Halloween costumes to give you some fun outfit ideas using stuff you (might) already have in your closet. I hope you like these costume ideas! 

Fall Outfit: Olive & Plaid

Olive and plaid--one of my fav combos!
Here's another look from our vacation to the mountains. I was sooo excited to pull out all of my sweaters and scarves. It was in the 60's during the day and in the 40's at night which was such a nice break from the Florida heat. I got this cardigan in olive and burgundy and I wore them both so much during our trip. The material is so soft and cozy and they seriously look great layered over anything--plus, they're under $50. It does run big so size down--I'm wearing an XXS. This plaid scarf was so popular last year and was gone before I had a chance to buy it. When I saw it back in stock this year I grabbed it up. I'm so glad I did cause it already sold out at Nordstrom. But I found it available HERE and it's under $50!! Definitely a must-have for fall!

Fall Trend: Shades Of Tan

Ten Take On Fall Part 3: Favorite Fall Trend(s)

Today is the final week of the Ten Take On Fall series and we're talking fall trends. This year there are so many amazing trends to follow and incorporate into your wardrobe. For me, I always lean more towards classic over super trendy. I like to incorporate trends in small doses, usually shoes, or accessories. I don't like to invest in a style that will likely be gone in a few months. So when I read The 12 Best Fall Trends from New York Fashion Week  I was instantly drawn to "Shades Of Tan". While they considered it a "trend", all of the pieces alone are classic and and will definitely carry season to season.

Neutral Fall Outfit

Neutrals will always be a favorite of mine regardless of the season. Pair a neutral look with a bold lip and you're ready to go! This mock neck sweater has quickly become a favorite and will be on major repeat the next few months. I wore it twice on our Gatlinburg vacation, I seriously could've worn it everyday and been happy. The material is so soft and cozy--it comes in 4 different colors and I'm pretty sure I'll own them all. Did I mention that it's under $40?! Such a steal!! I paired it with my favorite white jeans and OTK boots from last season. I found a similar pair of boots and since these are getting a little worn out (I lived in these last fall) these Pour la Victoire boots might be their replacements.

Fall Must-Have: Red Hunter Boots

Starting fall with a pop of red!

Ten Take On Fall Part 2: Fall Must-Have

When I think of fall the first thing that comes to mind is "red"! Over the weekend we took a trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Hiking Laurel Falls was top on our list. I didn't pack "hiking" shoes and knew whatever I wore would likely get wet. With it raining in Florida almost every day, I was already on the hunt for a pair of rain boots--this gave me the perfect excuse to finally get them. Hunter's were top on my list. Luckily, I found a local shoe store that carried them, had my size, and the exact color (military red) I was looking for--clearly it was meant to be!

The Secret To Getting Mermaid Hair

As I'm sure you guys know, I am obsessed with all things beachy and LOVE that wind blown salty "mermaid hair" look. Ever since I was little, I've loved going to the beach and coming home with sandy tan skin and tousled beach hair. I remember the first time I saw a mermaid--it was in Weeki Wachee, FL. I was mesmerized--I truly thought if I spent enough time at the beach I would eventually turn into one. That coconut sunscreen and salty beach air smell is something I'll never forget--and still my all time favorite scent.  Mermaid Perfume has managed to bottle my favorite beachy smell and I feel like they've bottled some of my best memories. I had seen these at  Anthropologie and had been dying to try--I am so glad I got my hands on them. I'm totally hooked!!

Casual With A Touch Of Edge

Happy Monday!!
Jeans and a plain with tee will always be my go-to--add some booties and a great bag and you're set! It's so easy to dress up or down and can be layered as much as needed--it's still prettyyy warm here in Florida so I'll be sticking with light layers for now. This is a great fall staple look that will work for anyone. I threw on my McQueen scarf to add a light "fall" layer. If it were cooler I'd pop on a leather jacket and be ready for date night. Layers are definitely my favorite thing about fall. You can easily change a basic outfit from day to night by adding a jacket or edgy scarf.
