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!

Brown and Black

Top: Forever 21 (similar and similar); Jeans: LC Lauren ConradBoots: Macy’s (similar); Necklace: Charming Charlie (similar); Purse: Lauren Ralph Lauren

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.

Fallen Leaves

Sweater: Old Navy (similar and similar); Jeans: LC Lauren ConradScarf: Charming Charlie (similar); Booties: Old Navy (similar and similar)

The leaves are quickly falling from the trees. It seems like they transition into beautiful colors and the next day they’re gone. They fall from the trees like snow, and it makes me sad to see the beautiful scenery disappear so quickly. As much as I griped about the impending fall season, I REALLY am not looking forward to winter. There’s nothing like scraping ice off your windshield to make you long for summer’s return.

With that said, I am using the remaining fall colors to my advantage. I couldn’t help but take some pictures in front of the vibrant orange and yellow leaves. Neutral colors are definitely my favorite pieces to style because they are so easy and versatile (duh). I also love wearing these booties because they’re comfier than heels but still give me some height.

Are you looking forward to winter or are you hanging on to the last bits of fall?

Say Hello to My Little Friend

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!
