Basic Fall Staples

  Cashmere Sweater: Everlane {a bit of a splurge but TOTALLY worth it} | Jeans: MOTHER {the perfect skinny flare} | Scarf: Nordstrom {also love this & this} | Handbag: Chloè {love this smaller version, too} | Booties: ASH | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Ring: David Yurman | Sunglasses: Cèline {super similar} | Lips: MAC 'Blankety'

Simple, yet chic.  A plaid scarf is such a fall staple for layering and can add such a cozy element to any look.  I love wearing cashmere during cool weather, it's just so soft and luxe.  However, I'm extremely picky about the brand, simply because some can be itchy and irritating.  Everlane is absolutely one of my favorite places to grab any basic, but definitely cashmere.  Their prices are amazing for the quality, too!  Pairing this sweater with a skinny flare jean seemed like the perfect combination for a chilly, Fall night!

I hope you all had a great week!  What are your plans for Halloween weekend?  Ours is going to be fairly calm and relaxing, I'm just ready for it to stop raining!!  It makes for a super dreary week when it rains every single day, so fingers crossed for a clear weekend!  Cheers, lovelies!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

P.S. - I put a clip of this on my snapchat last night, but if you didn't see Ellen yesterday, you have to watch this video!  I've been obsessively listening to Adele's new song 'Hello' and this cracks me up!  Gotta love Ellen! :)

Casual Cardi

 Cardigan: Equipment {currently 40% off! Also love this} | Tank: UO {seriously the softest thing ever} | Jeans: J Brand {love these for less than $100} | Booties: BP | Handbag: Louis Vuitton 'Favorite MM' {super similar} | Watch: MK | Bangles: Julie Vos | Sunglasses: Cèline {similar} | Necklace: Baublebar | Lips: MAC 'Blankety' {can't stop wearing this shade!} 

Is there anything better than a neutral outfit that consists of cashmere and the softest tank I've ever felt in my life?!  Ok, that was a little confusing, but the answer is NO!  In my opinion, at least. :)  I love how casual, yet chic this look is and it's definitely one that I gravitate towards over and over.  

On another note, this is going to sound CRAZY, but I made homemade soup yesterday for the first time in my whole life!! Haha. I started looking at Pinterest yesterday morning and someone pinned ALL of these yummy-looking soups, so I suddenly got the urge to make one!  I actually used my mother in laws recipe (that is to die for), so if anyone wants it, feel free to email me and I'll send it to you!  It turned out to be AMAZING and if you know me at all, you know I do not cook, so that's a major accomplishment for me!  I've become quite the little homemaker since working from home...what should I try next?!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Swing Dress + Utility Jacket

 Dress: Revolve {less than $70} | Jacket: Cupcakes & Cashmere {sold out, but love this & this, both under $100} | Scarf: Madewell {on sale!} | Bag: River Island | Boots: Sam Edelman | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Ring: David Yurman | Sunglasses: Cèline {super similar} | Lips: MAC 'Blankety' 

Happy hump day, lovelies!  As I mentioned on yesterday's post, layering for Fall is key.  I wore this look over the weekend while road tripping up to Asheville for the night and it was the perfect choice. Cool enough for during the day and warm enough for when the sun went down.  A swing dress really is the perfect piece for learning to layer (And this one is less than $70!).  Jackets, scarves, ponchos -  anything can be added to them to cozy-up (is that a real phrase?) the look a bit.  And, you can wear them with a flats, heels or boots, so that's a major plus!  A utility jacket is such a closet staple and also perfect for layering on top of almost anything!  If you haven't picked one up for Fall/Winter, this one and this one are my current faves, plus my scarf is on sale!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

A Fall Day Date

 Sweater: Cupcakes & Cashmere {I'm wearing an xs} | Top: BP {super similar + 25% off} | Jeans: Current/Elliott {my fave} | Necklace: Julie Vos | Booties: Frye | Handbag: Chloè {similar} | Sunglasses: Prada | Earrings: Nordstrom | Bracelets: David Yurman {onetwothree} | Ring: David Yurman | Lips: MAC 'Blankety' | Coffee Shop: Methodical Coffee {Greenville, SC}

Two of my favorite things about Fall: layering and coffee.  Ok, let's be serious, I drink coffee year 'round (daily, actually), but there's something better about it when there's a cold chill in the air!  When my blogger bestie, McKenna, arrived in Greenville last week, we headed straight downtown for a little coffee date.  Methodical Coffee is a fairly new cafè in Greenville and it's sooo good!  Not to mention the super cute marble countertops and vintage blue + white mugs.  

A striped turtleneck is definitely one of my staple Fall favorites!  Unfortunately, my exact top is sold out, but J.Crew has a super similar version that I've also purchased in the past and it literally goes with almost anything!  Under cardigans, ponchos, scarves, turtlenecks, etc - it pairs so well with anything for cool weather!

I hope you're all having a great week - thanks so much for stopping by! xx.

Blush Fringe Vest

Shirt: Madewell {also love this similar that's 25% off!} | Jeans: J Brand | Vest: Wayf | Shoes: Valentino {super similar dupe for less than $100 here} | Handbag: Louis Vuitton 'Neverfull GM' {similar} | Necklace: Baublebar | Bracelets: Julie Vos c/o | Sunglasses: Cèline {similar} | Lips: MAC 'Blankety'

You all know how much I love a chic, casual look, but this one takes the cake.  I LOVE wearing denim on denim + adding a few feminine touches to make the outfit a little less masculine.  Actually, when I came out in this look (pre blush vest + valentinos), J told me I looked like a redneck lumberjack! (Insert crying/laughing emoji)  But of course, he felt a little better about it once I added the blush pink.  I mean, let's be serious, give a girl a pair of rockstuds and she can turn any outfit into something fabulous! :)

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Thanks SO much for stopping by, xx.
