Stripes + Plaid

Top: J Crew | Jeans: J Crew | Scarf: Nasty Gal | Boots: Sperry {old, similar} | Crossbody: Tory Burch | Watch: MK | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o | Sunnies: Ray Ban c/o | Lips: Stila 'Fiery'

I love mixing patterns, especially when it comes to plaid.  This painter tee is a pretty basic, striped top, but the gold zippers on the shoulder give it a little something extra.  We took these photos beside the Country Music Center, right in the middle of downtown Nashville.  Exploring and taking in all the history and memorabilia in the city is so fascinating to me.  The start of fall, the nostalgia of an amazing city and the best company, all made for the perfect weekend.  As I mentioned in Monday's post, it was so chilly in Nashville, so I was thankful to have layers!  This is definitely one of my favorite, casual outfits for the season.  I'm sure I'll be pattern mixing a lot more with these fall staples.

Cashmere Sweater: Everlane c/o | Jeans: 7 FAM | Scarf: Nasty Gal | Booties: Sam Edelman | Crossbody: Kelly Wynne c/o | Earrings: Baublebar c/o | Sunnies: Prada | Lips: NARS 'Supervixen'

While exploring Nashville over the weekend, the mountains + gold leaves were absolutely breathtaking.  We spotted this beautiful scenery while heading to downtown Franklin and had to stop for a little impromptu photo shoot.  I mean, with this background, how could you not?!

Just when I thought I couldn't love Everlane any more than I already do...they launched their fall cashmere line.  This grey sweater is so warm + cozy and the perfect thing to throw on for a casual day outdoors.  Also, as most of you know, I have a slight obsession with plaid scarves this season, so you can definitely expect to see this one alot more!

True & Co

One of my favorite things to do is come home from work, take a bubble bath and change into something comfortable.  Whether it's just the two of us relaxing at home or we're having friends over for a casual dinner, I love to slip into something cozy as soon as possible.  True & Co has so many amazing pieces from loungewear to bras + panties to chic lingerie.  I just ordered this black lace bralette, these blush pink leggings and this sweet, little ivory camisole.  Take this quick, two minute quiz here to see which items work best for you and be sure to sign up to have emails sent directly to your inbox with promotions + new arrivals!

Fifty Shades of Grey

 Jacket: Anthropologie {obsessed!} | Blouse: Everlane c/o | Pants: Vince {also obsessed} | Booties: Pour La Victoire | Hat: Rag & Bone | Sunnies: Prada | Earrings: Baublebar | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  The hubs and I just got back from Nashville last night while celebrating our five year anniversary over the weekend.  Let me just say, we had the BEST time!  Nashville is such a beautiful, fun city.  We stopped at the cutest little coffee spots, ate delicious food (while listening to live country music of course), explored the city, walked across the John Seigenthaler bridge that overlooks downtown + ended our last night with a trip to The Patterson House.  I have to admit, one of my favorite parts about our weekend was driving through the beautiful mountains, to and from TN.  The leaves + views were absolutely breathtaking.  We rolled the windows down (with my heated seat on high, of course), turned on a little George Strait and took in the fresh mountain air.  It was beyond perfect.  Thank you for all of your sweet comments and well wishes for our anniversary, it meant so much to me!

Anyways, on to the fashion.  If I had to choose an outfit to live in, it would totally be this one.  As much as I love bright colors, I love basic black and shades of grey more.  I picked up these pants from Nordstrom Rack during the opening event a couple of weeks ago and loved the color, brand + price tag, so it was a no brainer.  I initially only brought this Everlane blouse to pair with them, but it was SO cold in Nashville this weekend.  The wind was so chilly, so I picked up this wrap jacket from Anthropologie while we were there and it coincidentally matched perfectly.  I was immediately obsessed with this jacket from the moment I laid eyes on it in the store and then even more so after wearing it. It's perfect to lounge around in, throw on for a casual night out or dress up.  (I love it in ivory, too + the grey should be online soon.)  Also, one last thing: this Rag & Bone hat is my new favorite accessory.  I actually just bought the pecan color, too in the same exact style because I love it so much.  It pairs so well with anything for fall + winter and is super convenient when having a bad hair day.  All in all, this outfit is a combination of four-five basic pieces that I loved pairing together for a fun night out on the town!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely day, x.

Weekend Getaway

Booties | Jeans | Rain Boots | Crossbody | Passport Case {I use as a wallet} | Striped Top | Necklace | Scarf {taking this, too} | Hat
If I had to choose one thing that completely and totally makes me so happy, it would have to weekend getaways.  There's something about getting away from the norm, taking time to relax + explore that rejuvenates me in every way.  Tomorrow, John and I will celebrate FIVE years of marriage, so taking off on a romantic, weekend getaway together is the perfect way to celebrate.  One thing you guys may not know about me is that I'm a huge country music fan.  Always have been, always will be.  My friend Leslie and I spontaneously took off to Nashville last year around this time to be extras on the show, Nashville, and we had the BEST time.  It's the perfect time of year to head to the mountains, see the leaves change and explore the city in the cool, crisp air.  Nashville, here we come!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and as always, thanks so much for stopping by, x.
