Top 10 NYE Dresses

I know everyone is in Christmas mode. I haven't even finished my Christmas shopping yet. I only have a few more gifts to get. I am always a procrastinator when it comes to shopping for gifts. I am off the next couple of days and will have plenty of time, hopefully.  I also can't believe the week after Christmas is New Years. The next on my list is my New Years Eve outfit.

Happy Hump day!! Can you believe next weekend is Christmas Eve. We just have to get through these next two weeks. We can do it!  We have a possibility of snow next week too, which is crazy.

Holiday Gift Guide for the Runner

I have two other gift guides Holiday gift guide for HIM and Holiday gift guide for HER. I wanted to be create a gift guide for specific groups of people. I will have more specific gift guides to come as we get closer to Christmas. The reason I chose a gift guide for the runner is because you may not know this about me but I love to run. I was in cross country and track during high school. So I thought it was fitting to create a guide for the runner.

Fair Isle Sweater

Sweater (under 40) | Vest | Jeans | Booties | Bracelet | Watch 

We are halfway to the weekend. I can't believe it is also so close to Christmas. It is exactly 17 days. Can you believe it? I better get my Christmas shopping done. I am not even close to being done. It is finally feeling like Winter in Kentucky. I enjoy the time around the Holidays but not necessarily the weather. This week Kentucky has been way to cold. You snow bunnies are most likely used to it, but I am definitely not.  One thing about colder weather is breaking out your cold weather clothes.

Guys are the hardest to shop for so I am hoping this will help you all.

Fur vest with Dress

Dress | Earrings (similar) | Vest | Booties | Watch | Bracelet

In my last post here I talked about a casual outfit for Thanksgiving. For this post I wanted to give you a dressier option. With most traveling for Thanksgiving I wanted to choose an outfit that would be easy and could go with other staple items in your closet. I also wanted to make sure I chose an outfit that could be for lunch or dinner. I know some of my Thanksgiving have either been during lunch or dinner.

This cowl neck poncho would be perfect for any Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving events you will be attending.

I am currently watching the election coverage which it is quite fitting with my patriotic outfit. This outfit I am wearing is one of favorite classic outfits to wear. You may or may not see me wearing this one on repeat.

I am so excited that today is Friday, and it is officially the weekend. It makes it even better that it is the weekend before Halloween. Today I helped my mother in law make chocolate covered pretzels and chocolate pumpkin suckers. They were delicious, but what isn't that involves chocolate. Now onto my outfit.

Comfortable Fall Outfit

It is finally feeling like and looking like Fall in Kentucky. This past weekend we went to the pumpkin patch and picked out our pumpkins. I can't wait to carve them this weekend. We also caved into the caramel apples. They are so good, mine only lasted a day.

Fall Engagement Photo Ideas

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! A couple of weeks ago I went to Ohio for one of my friends to do wedding things. She is getting married the end of next year, and I am one of her bridesmaids. She is taking engagement photos in the Fall. One of the things I was super excited to help her pick out was her engagement photo outfits.

Denim with leather pants

Top | Pants (similar) | Watch | Earrings (similar) | Purse (similar) | Booties (similar) 

Happy Hump Day loves! We are halfway through the week. I love this class denim top. This denim top is also 40% off which makes it even better. It is super soft and I love how it snaps vs. buttons. I also love it paired with leather pants. These pants are my favorite, they look like leather but are actually leather coated (ie they don't feel like rubber) haha! The ones I have are from last year but these are similar. This top will be my staple for tall.

Leopard Infinity Scarf Outfit

Top (similar) | Jeans | Infinity Scarf | Purse | Lace up flats (similar) | 
This past weekend I took a trip to Ohio with one of my friends. She is getting married in December 2017. We were able to do a few things for her wedding. My favorite thing was helping her pick out outfits for her engagement shoot coming up. I will have an upcoming post about outfit shopping for engagement pictures soon. One of my favorite staples to wear into fall is a scarf. Infinity scarves are my favorite they are so easy to throw on with a long sleeve or short sleeve top and jeans. This one is even better since it has tassels. My top is older, but I linked a similar one here. I love long sleeve tops that can be dressed up or down with little lace details. I also love blush colors for fall like this purse.

Striped Tee Casual Style

I feel like Mondays are perfect for casual style. This week it actually feels like fall. This jacket I have had for a few years, and it the first thing I grab when it starts to feel like fall. I found a similar one here. Stripes are pretty much my favorite. This top even though it is short sleeve will be perfect paired with jackets. They look put together even though I'm just wearing a comfy casual t-shirt. I never thought I would own a pair of white tennis shoes, but these are so comfortable and stylish. The hem on these jeans are also my favorite. What is your favorite comfortable style?

Lace Embroidered Top

Happy Friday Eve! I am so excited that tomorrow is Friday. It is crazy how fast it has cooled off here in Kentucky. The other day it was 90s, now the low is in the 60s. I will admit the transition from Summer to Fall can be a tough one in terms of knowing what to wear. The best thing to do is wear layers. I decided to wear this top and tie a jacket around my waist. Kentucky weather is a little strange. It can be hot during the day then cold at night. A jacket would be perfect to throw on when it gets chillier at night. As sad as it is the weather has pretty much cooled down enough that flip flops are a no go. An alternative is flats which I pretty much wear all of fall. These lace-up ones are older but I found these ones that are similar and are under $25. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Blue and White Tie-Dye Blouse

During the fall my wardrobe will consist of mostly blue hues. This top is perfect for breezy fall days. It doesn't hurt it is blue and white either for UK Wildcats. This will be worn for a football game or on UK game days most definitely. I wanted to dress it up a little so I just added these peep toe booties. I have been loving these statement earrings in white. They are perfect for summer or fall. Who says you can't wear white after labor day.  It is a perfect day here, the weather is finally looking like fall. I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

Navy and Pink Plaid Dress

Happy first day of Fall! My favorite thing about fall is the leaves changing. It doesn't feel like fall around here today with high in the 90s. Hopefully the next couple weeks will cool down so I can wear my scarves, and enjoy that first pumpkin spice latte. I will admit I have already had squash soup. Dresses are great investment pieces for fall when you can layer them with tights come winter. This plaid dress is a great transition outfit for fall when the weather decides to cooperate. I am really into grey accessories this fall, is anyone else?

Black Denim Jacket

I own a light denim jacket, but I never thought to buy a black denim jacket. I found this black denim jacket and I absolutely love it. It is cropped too which I love. The cropped jackets are perfect for wearing over a summer dress when it starts to get cooler. I kept it casual by adding this metallic t-shirt. Metallic t-shirts are a nice step up from a regular t-shirt. Who doesn't love a little bling? These peep toe booties have a little height, but are still comfortable. I don't know about you all but I have ditched the 4 inch plus heels. What was I thinking wearing those? An outfit is never complete without your favorite accessories. Mine would be this tassel necklace and neutral suede purse

Fall Favorites

1. My go-to bag is a crossbody. Even better the tassels on the purse are in deep autumn hues. It also comes in blue, purple, and tan. 
2. A staple in every women's closet should be a pair of flats. I love this neutral flat. It will go with most items in your closet. 
3. I love statement earrings. These statement earrings are perfect with the blue and neutral hues. These will be my next purchase. 
4. A pair of black jeans are perfect for fall. When summer ends I immediately am on the hunt for a pair of black skinny jeans that work well with booties.
5. Another staple that should be in your closet is a pair of peep toe booties. They are the perfect transition item from summer to fall. 
6. I love the over the knee boots with a dress for fall. It is an easy outfit to put together.

Creme Embroidered Skirt

Once I saw this creme skirt I was in love. I love the details at the bottom. I wanted to create a fall look with this skirt. My favorite way to turn a look into fall is to add a vest. The vest I have on is older, but I found an almost exact one here. Another staple I have from summer are tanks which are perfect paired with this skirt. The tank I have on is one of my favorites. It can be dressed up or down. It also comes in navy, black, and a wine color. The wine color will be the color I pick up next.

Leopard Top

Happy Friday! I love having a short work week this week, I don't know about you? One of my favorite patterns is leopard. It is said to be a neutral. I totally agree with this statement. This leopard top is also on sale 40% off of 34.99 for a limited time. When styling leopard I usually go with mixing patterns, but I decided to keep it simple with black purse and jeans. I made this necklace my big statement. I love it because it is 3 necklaces in one. The necklaces are detachable, which is awesome when you don't want to wear a layering necklace. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
