Me and my photographer had a blast doing this shoot (Thanks TT)! We took a ride down to the local farm stand and did some walking shots in between the rows of beautiful fall colored mums and picturesque apple trees. The weather was perfect and my outfit was super fall looking. This knit top came from Nordstrom last year. It is one of my favorite tops, but the quality of it is very poor. I have a very hard time not putting holes in it every time I wear it, and not to mention the fact that I cannot wear a necklace with it cause it will get caught! Finally getting to the point of wearing my knee-high boots again too… and these just might be my favorite ones!
I don’t think I talk often about my bracelets, so today I have a few words! I like to wear lots of bracelets together at a time, and this outfit was perfect for that since I couldn’t wear a necklace (have to pile on the femininity somewhere!!). I am totally digging Alex and Ani Bracelets. They are the hottest thing right now, and have completely overtaken New England. If you live outside of here, you may want to stock up when you visit, cause they will make it to your town eventually and will be an instant hit. This way you can be the cool girl who had one (or 5) before everyone else 😉 They can be found at the Paper Store, some jewelry stores and online at their site (link below).
This is one of my first fall looks! Some of the days this fall have been cooler, and some warmer, very “New England”, so outfits are all over the place! I am wearing my favorite trench coat in these shots. I saw this Cynthia Rowley beauty last year at TJMaxx, and knew it was a winner. The mixed media top I have on is by Olivia Moon, Mixed fabric is a huge trend right now – you see it often with leather as one of the materials. It is all over the runways, blogs, and fashion retailers (good stuff at Piperlime). The printed part of the top (zebra) is a soft, satin-like fabric, while the sleeves are a marled knit. I LOVE the combo here, this was one of those tops that you see and MUST have regardless of the price (luckily it was completely reasonable — thanks TJ’s!) When you are out shopping for fall and winter items this season, make sure to get some mixed fabric tops and/or jackets to stay on trend! Happy shopping!
This is probably the last time I can wear my boots!!! I hate to see them go for the season, but that just means sandal time and warmer weather! Melon and Teal are great colors for spring. They are also both colors that help with making you look a little more tan too! I piled on the bracelets with this outfit, and I love to wear that many at a time!!! This is one of those feel good outfits. You always feel good about yourself when you like what you are wearing! I read this quote a few days ago, I can’t remember where, but it made a lot of sense to me. It said, “You have to get dressed everyday, so why not love the clothes you put on?” That is what I think about when I get dressed, and I know that I will have an off day if I don’t like what I’m wearing or feel good in it!! You should do the same!
It’s beginning to look a lot more like spring! Look at the lace detailing on this dress… how cute??! I borrowed this frock from one of my friends, she got it a few years ago at Target, what a find huh? So happy that we can share clothes 🙂 Pockets on dresses are the best thing to be invented in women’s apparel in a long time. Thank God! I don’t even want to buy any more dresses without pockets!
I love the look of a messy bun with a headband. It’s so effortless, but can look very polished and chic. I have a bunch of different colors of these headbands (they are great for bad bang days) and are only a few bucks at CVS! Good deal!
Have a nice weekend!

Yay for color blocking! I like this look a lot, I think it works because the grayscale colors of the sweater really stand out and flow nicely with the pop of the red pants. The Black boots help to ground the color, and even it out a little too. The pallet boards are a pretty cool background too!
There is something about a great pair of boots that just make you feel good. Can you relate or am I just crazy and obsessed with boots? These boots do that for me 🙂 I needed a casual, relaxed day today, so I just wore my fav Gap jeans, one of my fav pairs of boots and a loose-fitting sweater. Is it Friday yet?? 🙂
