Sweater Weather

Sweater: J. Crew | Jeans: J. Crew | Booties: DV by Dolce Vita {love these} | Clutch: Clare Viver | Earrings: Baublebar | Watch: MK | Bracelet: Stella & Dot c/o | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Lips: Stila 'Fiery'

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  Ours was filled with family dinners, cool weather, pumpkin picking + Clemson football and I couldn't be happier about it.  Isn't this time of year just the best?  I feel like everyone is officially over the heat and anxious for the leaves to start changing.  After the hubs and I picked out a couple of pumpkins for our front porch Saturday morning, it inspired me to pull out a few fall decorations to sit around the house.  There's nothing better than a nutmeg scent burning + a little candy corn.

So, I have a slight major obsession with two things so far this season - gingham anything and sweaters.  I love the asymmetrical zippers on this tomato colored sweater.  It just gives it a little something extra.  I also just bought this gingham shirt that I plan to layer with a lot this fall, as soon as the weather gets just a little cooler.  This is my favorite time of year to shop at J. Crew - so much layering perfection! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, xo.

SCANDAL DAY

There are so many wonderful things about fall - the chill in the air, apple picking, layering cozy sweaters, sunflowers, warm candles around the house and so on.  By far, my favorite season of the year for all of those reasons + more.  However, one thing that tops the list is TV.  I watch SO many television shows that it's a little embarrassing.  So, the reason behind this post and the party setup above is in honor of my favorite show, Scandal, that returns tonight!  My best friend introduced me to the show over the summer via Netflix (thank god for netflix!) and I immediately became obsessed.  (i.e. binge watching: three seasons in three weeks) If you watch the show, you know how amazing Olivia Pope is.  She's so beautiful, successful, smart and wears the BEST clothes + accessories.  I mean, can we zoom in on those Prada bags a little more often?  So, today's post is in honor of girls nights everywhere, celebrating fall + TV shows with popcorn + rosé - cheers, lovelies!


Here are a few other favorite TV shows to get hooked on for fall:
P.S. - This plaid blanket scarf was such a huge hit last year, but sold out quickly.  Luckily, Nasty Gal has an identical one! Get it HERE

Denim on Denim

Top: J. Crew | Cardigan: J. Crew | Jeans: J. Crew | Crossbody: GiGi New York c/o | Booties: Sam Edelman | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Watch: MK | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o (x2) | Lips: YSL #103

One of my favorite trends for fall is a chic, denim on denim look.  I've always loved chambray, so transitioning it into fall is a must.  J. Crew always has the best denim pieces, whether it be jeans, a chambray top or a denim jacket.  I decided to go for a little more of a layered look to keep it casual + add a pop of color and I LOVE this mauve blush cashmere cardigan.  I've only had it a little over a week and already worn it 3-4 times.  This outfit is so great together, but will be even better as individual fall staple pieces.

Black & Chic

Grey

Crossbody | Leather Leggings | Nailpolish | Candle | Necklace | Sunnies | Sweater | Perfume | Lipstick | Booties

Just a simple, black + gray look for this week.  I'm obsessing over a few things in this little set up - the crossbody, the necklace and the booties.  A little pricey for the most part, but classic, super chic pieces that are such to be staple items in any closet.

Floral Kimono

Kimono: Chicwish c/o | Tank: J. Crew | Jeans: 7 FAM | Necklace: Lisi Lerch c/o | Handbag: Kelly Wynne c/o | Bracelet: Oia Jules via Lilli & Tori c/o | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Lips: Jouer Cosmetics c/o

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  We definitely took it easy the past couple of days and enjoyed this beautiful fall weather!  Yesterday, we headed up to Charlotte for a little road trip to spend time with my family + catch up with a couple of my favorite blogger babes, Caitlin and McKenna.  I love when online friends actually become real friends and these girls are the absolute best.  
Although I'm constantly gravitating towards fall fashion right now + enjoying every minute of cool weather, I'm still loving light layers and bright colors.  This kimono definitely adds a little pop to a basic outfit and makes a fun statement.  Plus, the fringe is just a bonus - I'm absolutely dying over fringe for fall!  EarringsNecklacesShoes + Handbags, all of it.

Shades of Fall

 Top: Topshop {sold out, similar + here} | Pants: J. Crew {love these} | Cardigan: J. Crew {also just brought mauve blush, obsessed} | Necklace: ILY Couture c/o {just got this yesterday}| Shoes: C. Wonder {similar} | Watch: MK | Sunnies: Ray Ban c/o | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

Happy Friday, lovelies!  It's been a long week and I could not be more excited for the weekend!  I'm pulling shades of fall out of my closet every chance I can.  We've had a lot of rainy afternoons + evenings in Greenville lately, so that has made for chilly mornings, long sleeves + lots of coffee.  Also, can we talk about this handbag?!  It's the perfect size + style for any outfit, especially while traveling.  I'm constantly gravitating towards long cardigans, booties + floppy hats for fall.  I can't get enough of the warm, rich colors!

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

Fall Flannel

Top: J. Crew {last year, but similar here + here} | Jeans: 7 FAM | Booties: Sam Edelman | Crossbody: GiGi New York c/o | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Lips: Stila 'Fiery'

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  John and I had the best time getting out of town for the weekend.  We headed to Charleston for a little R & R + to celebrate a friends wedding and it was so nice just to relax and unplug for a couple of days.  While driving back to Greenville yesterday, we noticed the closer we got to home, the cooler it got.  Once we arrived and stepped outside, it was like it turned fall overnight!  The past couple of weeks, I've just been forcing fall with long sleeve tees + pumpkin lattes, but the weather was actually playing along yesterday!  I'm so excited for the leaves to start falling and that cool, crisp chill in the air.  So anyway, I took full advantage of the drop in temperature and pulled out the flannel.  Fall will officially be here before we know it!

Leopard + Blush


Top: Everlane c/o | Pants: J. Crew | Clutch: Clare Viver {want this} | Belt: J. Crew | Shoes: Valentino | Necklace: Stella & Dot c/o | Watch: MK | Sunnies: Prada {love these} | Extentions: Bellami Hair c/o {use code LOVELY for $5 off} | Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte #7

Happy Friday, lovelies!  We officially made it to the weekend and I for one, could not be happier about it.  Per usual, our weekend is completely booked and crazy busy, but I sort of love that.  As much as I want to just stay in the bed and pull the covers over my head some days, I also realize that it's the little moments that make up the big ones.  Looking back on weekend getaways, celebrations with family + friends and late night dinners, it's made for one amazing summer.  

I'm not sure that this outfit is shocking to anyone, considering it's blush pink + white (#rulebreaker), but I'm absolutely obsessed with it.  As I mentioned the other day, Everlane has the softest tees of any brand I've worn, but their silk tops are just as luxurious, if not better!  They just came out with their fall colors and I'm loving this slate grey + chocolate brown.  But, of course, the blush was at the top of my list.  I threw in a little leopard to add texture + a fun print and it made for the perfect date night outfit.  We had to stop on the way to dinner to take photos beside this gorgeous sunset.  I couldn't get a lot of it in the background unfortunately, but had to take one simply to capture how breathtaking it was.  Sunsets around this time of year are always the best!

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