That Fall Feeling..

Friday, August 22, 2014

Oh my! I am so so so ready for fall! I can promise you I don't wish away seasons often but I do wish fall lasted longer & came in August... specifically August 22, ha! 

I've mentioned before that my fur vests are always super popular on my blog & in real life.. so I wanted to let you all know about this gorgeous tan/white striped fur vest from Chicwish. I actually have 2 brown vests, a white one and a black one... but I don't have one that's multi colored so I ordered this one, too! I didn't want you all to miss out because it is under $40! Fur vests are super easy to wear... I love wearing mine with dresses, button downs, turtlenecks, etc. A fur vest can change your entire look so don't miss out on snagging this one. I know it will go quickly.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Thank you for reading..xo.

Camo Casual...

Thursday, August 21, 2014




TOP: J.Crew Factory (HALF OFF TODAY ONLY!) | DENIM: J.Crew | FLATS: old (almost identical) | BAG: Tory Burch | WATCH: Michael Kors | LIPS: YSL #29

Maybe its the Arkansan in me, but I am still loving touches of camo here & there... 

(Double) Date Night...

Wednesday, August 20, 2014











TOP: Anthropologie | DENIM: J.Crew (25% off with SHOPNOW) | HEELS: Christian Louboutin (similar here & here) | BAG: Prada (loving this new style of Tory Burch w/a triple zip! & this one is similar!) | SUNGLASSES: Sole Society c/o | WATCH: Michael Kors | BRACELETS: David Yurman, Baublebar c/o, Stella & Dot | RINGS: Monica Vinader, Baublebar | NECKLACE: Baublebar | LIPS: Nars 'Heatwave

Finally, the outfit I was planning on posting - the shirt is finally online! This was my #ootn on Friday night for a double date night with our friends Mike & Savannah. We are really grateful to have them! In fact, Savannah & I meet for lunch at least one time per week at McAllisters... it became such a common practice that we bought their new Tea Tumblers & I am pretty sure we paid those cups off in the first week, lol! Anyway, these J.Crew jeans are semi new to the store & I have never purchased denim from J.Crew before. It is safe to say that I will be re-purchasing if they all fit like these because boy, they are so comfortable & I find them to be flattering! PS. I get asked about what size I order a lot so.. in the top I got a Medium (its a little big but I kind of wanted it loose and longer.. in the jeans I got my normal size!)

Anyway, this is my date night look... I am pretty sure this shirt will get LOTS of wear this year seeing that it is kind of reddish (okay its 'tangerine'). John is a devout OSU Buckeyes fan & I love the Hogs so I am sure I'll be re-wearing it plenty. Oh & the ruffle down the back doesn't hurt anything. ;)

Hope you all are having a great week!! Thank you for stopping by..xo!

Crisp..

 TOP: Topshop (similar here) | DENIM: (obsessed with these & these.. & others below!) | HEELS: Christian Louboutin (similar options here & here) | CLUTCH: Clare Vivier (a staple!) | WATCH: Michele | BRACELETS: David Yurman (chain link), T+J Designs (leopard), Stella & Dot, ShopbellaCx2 | RINGS: BaubleBar , Monica Vinader | SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker 'Super Duper' | NECKLACE: Baublebar c/o | LIPS: (I am guessing...) Fleshpot by MAC

Soooo, I initially planned on sharing an outfit that I wore on Friday with you all today but the cutest part of the outfit is not online so I am playing the waiting game over here! Anyway, last week I wore this outfit (white top + boyfriend jeans) and right as the UPS man delivered a camera that we are considering, John walked in so we ran outside to play with it (the coloring is sort of weird, sorry!). John snapped these photos & I had no intention of using them but I figured since this is what I was actually wearing & felt super comfortable in I would share. Earlier on that particular day I was working on some new hair styles (as you can see it was not fixed at all in these photos) but I always have to get out & run errands during the day so I try to stay semi-put together.  I am not sure just how many college gals read my blog, but I know this would be my uniform if I were in college. (Fun fact: I went to a private Christian college & we weren't allowed to wear shorts to class!)

ALSO! I have people ask about my bracelet with the 'E' charm quite often.. here it is & it's cheaper here. I wear it a lot so I wanted to make sure to share that! 

*AND* if you didn't shop the HUGE Lilly Pulitzer sale yesterday... do it now! Ah sooo many precious things!

Gearing Up...

Monday, August 18, 2014








TOP: A local shop (similar styles here, here, & here.. more below) | SKIRT: J. Crew | BAG: Tory Burch (loving this too!) | BOOTIES: Sole Society (last season) (similar styles here & here) | SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker | NECKLACE: BaubleBar c/o | RINGS: BaubleBar, Monica Vinader | WATCH: Michael Kors  | LIPS: Please Me | BRACELETS: ShopbellaC, Nordstrom, Charm & Chain

When I saw this skirt online at J.Crew I was sold... I love the fit & style. It's super flattering & is multi-seasonal so it was a must for me! When I was styling it, I found that it went with so many other things in my closet. I'm totally gearing up for fall... I can't help it! :)

In other news, make sure not to miss the LILLY sale! Lilly Pulitzer is having their HUGE sale starting today... Every year I notice that things tend to sale rather quickly so make sure to check it out.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 


Back-to-School..

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Since school is right around the corner (or has already started for some of you), I've been thinking about what basics would be essential if I were heading back to college. I always loved back to school time because it meant new (fall) clothes, new fun school supplies, & of course being back with friends.


So Lately....

Friday, August 15, 2014

My fishtail turned topknot... It was super easy to do & not really intentional either. I just put my hair into a high pony & then did a fishtail braid. I secured it with an elastic and then twisted my hair into a bun & secured it with several bobby pins & hair spray! If this really doesn't make sense, I will make a tutorial!
Loving this ShopbellaC "I Woke Up Like This" assemetrical tee! Clutch is here.
One of my FAVORITE dresses ever! I wore it as a cover-up in Cabo - it is from Gigi's Boutique. It would be so cute this fall with boots or even for a country concert! ;)

 So gorgeous. God is so good!
 I loved the Mexico version of Diet Coke! Similar sandals & bracelets are here & here.
 Yummy chicken tortilla soup for lunch... one of my favorite meals of all! Sunglasses are here.

Hope you guys have a great weekend! I didn't have a lot of service while in Mexico so I wanted to get some photos up from my Instagram so you all know where things are from in case I missed questions. Thank you all so much for reading!
