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!

Leaves in the Fall

I’ve had this top for quite some time, but I love it so much I just keep wearing it and can’t get rid of it. You can’t really tell from the pictures, but it has beautiful cutouts along the neckline. The pattern and colors are perfect for fall because they look like orange and tan leaves falling. I love the look of such a flowy top with these skinny, olive colored jeans. This outfit is great for a casual day out. Hope you all are having a great week so far.

Chambray Shirt

You can never go wrong with a chambray shirt. They’re a great alternative to a denim jacket when it’s still a little warm out. I recently got this one toward the end of summer. I also got these booties on a killer deal last fall. I’d been looking for a pair of tan wedge booties, as you may recall from this post. They are so, so comfortable which is amazing because you can have the chicness of wearing heels without the inevitable pain they usually bring. I’ve got my eye on the same pair but in black. I’ve been counting down the days until I could break out these babies. You can be sure I’ll be wearing these shoes on repeat this fall and winter. What item have you been looking forward to wearing?

Style Rut

You probably recognize these shoes. They are the exact same as the brown ones I’ve been wearing but in black (obviously). I’ve been rotating them with the brown ones as much as possible. I actually haven’t worn this skirt in forever because I was stuck in one of those styling ruts where it seemed like the skirt didn’t go with anything in my closet. Funny enough, I was trying to style an outfit and told Adam I wanted to wear a skirt and he picked this one and said it would look good with some kind of black shirt. Obviously I was in a MAJOR styling rut since I couldn’t even come up with that myself – cue the eye roll. I’m so in love with this outfit, though, and I want to wear it basically any time I leave my house. I can’t wait to swap out the wedges for some booties when the weather gets cooler, which it’s starting to already! Hope you all had a great week! I’d love to hear any exciting plans you might have for the weekend! I’m super, super, super, super, super (and so many more super’s) excited because I get to see my best friend for the first time in TWO years tomorrow!! AHHHH! Ok, I’m done now.

Going on a Safari

Top: Express (similar and similar); Pants: Forever 21 (similar and similar); Sandals: Charlotte Russe (similar and similar); Watch: Anne KleinBracelet: Forever 21 (similar); Sunglasses: Charming Charlie

For some reason this top reminds me of going on a safari. I have no idea why, so I can’t really give you an explanation. Regardless, I absolutely love this top. Quite frankly, I love pretty much any cold shoulder top. I think they’re so feminine and delicate. I also love the color of this top specifically. If you saw my post yesterday, you know olive is one of my favorite colors to wear. This top is so versatile because you can obviously wear it in the warm weather, but you can also throw a cardigan over it and BAM you have a cute collared shirt and no one has to know it’s for summer. Hope you’re having a good week so far! We’re halfway through!

The title is corny, but I just had to! You guys know I mention Mandi quite a bit on here. Well, it’s because she’s my best friend, duh! We are so similar it’s crazy. One of our most obvious similarities is that we are both pretty darn short. (Thus the title.) I absolutely love her style, and I always turn to her with fashion questions. I so badly want her to start her own blog! Don’t worry, I’m still trying to talk her into it. She has some great fashion tips, tricks, and ideas.

Mandi came to visit over the weekend, and as usual, we shopped till we dropped. Also, I don’t think we stopped talking from the time she arrived until after she left. There’s always just so much to talk about and catch up on, especially now that we’re in a little bit of a long distance relationship (sad face). As soon as I opened the door and saw her outfit I was dying. I love the pink vest with the flannel! It’s a great way to add a pop of bright color in a season that is usually filled with dark hues. I was also admiring her cute little top knot. Sadly, I have yet to master this hairstyle, but she pulled it off perfectly!

I always love when Mandi comes to visit. Words can’t express how much I appreciate her friendship! You all should comment and tell Mandi to start her own blog!

Family Visits

I’m so excited because my brother-in-law and his fiancée are in town for the week. They live pretty far away, and we haven’t seen them for about five months. It’s always fun when they come to visit because Adam and his brother are hilarious together! When we all get together the house gets pretty chaotic and loud, and I love it. They should be moving here sometime next year, and I can’t wait to have them near us because they’ve been gone for almost two years. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week and hanging out with them more.

Who do you enjoy getting a visit from?
