Red lips and leopard print are a must for fall and winter in my opinion. Let’s be honest, leopard print is always a must for me. My mother-in-law bought this sweater for me last year and it is so cozy! I paired it with one of my quilted vests for some added warmth on one of the chillier days we’ve had so far. You can’t go wrong with an all black outfit, but I wanted to add just a touch of color for some interest (even if that “color” is gray). Whenever I wear black, I love to pop on some red lipstick and this one is my favorite. Oh and of course I had to get a picture with my favorite girl!

Suede Dress

This outfit. You guys. Oh my gooosshhh. I absolutely love outfits that incorporate different shades of the same color. That is one of the many reason why I am so in love with this outfit. Brown and tan and gold, oh my! You would not believe the awesome steal I got on this dress! I’m talking less than $9 people! And no, it was not thrifted. I had been eyeing it for quite some time (I’m talking over six months), and it finally went on super sale during the summer. I snatched it up quickly and patiently waited for the first chilly day I could don it with my cream turtleneck. This is one of those outfits that just puts a little pep in my step and makes me feel really good about myself. I think it’s the combination of feeling a little more dressed up than normal and also wearing some of my favorite shades for my coloring. As soon as I saw this dress way back when I knew there would be a multitude of outfits I could style with it and I can’t wait to wear them all! Hope you guys are having an awesome Friday!

Maroon Obsession

Sweater: Target; Tank: Target; Pants: Forever 21 (similar); Shoes: Lucky Brand; Necklace: Charming Charlie (similar)

I have a slight obsession with maroon this time of year. Maroon clothes, maroon shoes, maroon decor…you name it, I’ll buy it. So it’s no surprise that I’m in love with this sweater from Target. I got it on a crazy good sale – I’m talking less than $10! It’s very comfy because it’s lightweight so you don’t sweat your face off but it still keeps you warm enough. I can’t get enough of these flats, although truthfully I’m STILL breaking them in. Beauty is pain, right? I love this outfit for its simplicity and its casual feel. Hope you guys are having a great week!

Favorite Vest

Turtlenecks are definitely a classic and have become one of my favorite pieces to wear in the cooler weather. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, especially when they fit tightly around your neck. I’ve found the key is to get one with a slightly slouchy neck so you don’t feel like you’re choking. I think they look chic and put together. I’m also a huge fan of quilted vests in the fall time (just like every other girl). My mother-in-law bought me this one for Christmas last year, and I absolutely love the color of it! I’ve worn it so many times already this fall. I was surprised when she said it was from Kmart. I guess I don’t give them enough credit in the clothing department. This outfit is such a nice, simple one to throw on for any casual occasion. Hope you guys are having a good week so far!

Football season is in full swing. The games are playing, the snacks are being passed around, and we all know someone who’s yelling at the tv screen. I love game day clothes because they’re some of the comfiest and cutest outfits to wear. I put together some outfits to help inspire you in case you can’t think of what to wear to the big games on the weekend. I did a post similar to this for baseball games a few years ago. It was a pretty big hit, so I thought a football version was overdue. I hope you find some inspiration!

Brown and Black

I’ve heard before that brown and black are not to be paired together. Just call me a rule breaker! I love the look of this flowy top with these structured riding boots. I added the cheetah print necklace to tie in the brown and black colors. As you guys know, I like to link everything so that you can purchase any pieces you see that you might like. It’s no secret I try to stick to a budget, which means I can’t always buy the most current items in stores. If I can’t find the exact item anymore, I try to link items that are identical or at least very similar. I wish they could all be the exact same pieces as what I’m wearing, but alas, I just don’t have the money to constantly be shopping. I hope you guys understand. Just trying to be real here! Ok, just needed to put that out there so you guys know. Happy Monday! Start the week off great.

Fall Favorites Under $50

“Fall favorites under fifty.” Say that five times. Fall always resurfaces my shopping itch. I just love the colors, patterns, and styles so much! However, I don’t have all the money in the world to splurge on the beautiful fall pieces I see. So I found some pieces under $50 that I love just as much. I’m hoping to add a couple of them to my wardrobe soon. I also want to go thrifting for some cozy sweaters before the cold weather really hits us. Hope you guys have a great day!
