Textural


It feels good to revisit some forgotten favorites and new additions for fall! I think that I should have been a little more concerned about a leather overload between my jacket, coated jeans, shoes and bag but I'll just call it a play on textures. Lol, how are you overindulging this autumn?

Emerald

 
I know, I know...long time no see! I figured I should check in for some fall fashion before I forget how to blog altogether. Seeing as I purchased this peplum jacket back during the summer, it was definitely time to give it a whirl for a warmer autumn day. Paired with a forest green cropped pant, glittery earrings and nude pumps, it was a fun ensemble for an after work happy hour. 
What's your go to for a quick transition from work to fun?

Sublime


Since those of us in the Midwest have at least half the year to enjoy jackets, coats and boots - I'm taking my sweet time switching over from summer. Donning a light sweater, ripped jeans and pumps seemed like a good compromise as I mentally prepare for the colder months. And since I'm a rebel without a cause, I made sure to incorporate a neon hue...hope I'm not the only one bending the rules!
 
Thanks for reading...

Femme

 
Nothing like a floral blouse and ruffled skirt to make me feel like a femme fatale. And the saturated shades give it just the right amount of oomph! But as much as I'll miss my summer threads, I am quite looking forward to all of the fall layering possibilities before winter takes over. I've been stocking up on animal prints, cozy neutrals and lots of leather accents...how are you getting set for fall fashion?

Southern Charm

 

It goes without saying, but it really gets no simpler than a breezy maxi in the summer.
For a recent family reunion in Myrtle Beach, it was a no brainer for the humid heat - whether walking on the beach, riding the Skywheel or over indulging at Cracker Barrel (lol) it was perfect for whatever the day held. Looking cool and composed was just another bonus! 
  
How do you style your maxi?
 
As always, thanks for reading!

Laid back

 
As someone that is perpetually running late, I love being able to throw on a button up shirt to look put together in a flash. After all, this little ensemble was thrown together in 5 minutes flat. However, I like to think that I may have fooled some folks into thinking that it was carefully selected, ironed and pressed the night before...considering I don't even own an iron that was definitely not the case!
Lol, how are you dressing for these last summer weekends?
 
P.S. Thanks for the pics, Norma!

Vibrant


If you guys hadn't noticed, I enjoy a bit of color. Especially in the summer! So finding this dress at Express was a pleasant surprise since I'd considered buying it in other colors before.
It worked perfectly for a recent rooftop summer party...I may have to get a few more of these!

Elated


So I could blather on about the necessity of tribal printed pants (again) ...OR I could simply say that I am so very ecstatic for my little sister who is recently engaged! I've known her fiance for over 10 years and have been so thrilled to see the progression of their relationship. No doubt they will have a beautiful future together.

Congrats Tiff & Jerico!!

Bohemian


Just a quick vacation look to share!
I would advise anyone who's not yet explored the wonders of wide leg patterned pants to try them out before the summer is over. They're honestly like pajama pants for daytime. All it took was a crop top and long necklace and I was ready to hit the streets!

Do share your tricks for effortless style as well!

Thanks for reading!

Poised


As much as I like to think that I'm the fashion enthusiast of the family, sometimes my little sister takes me to school! Like this little ensemble she threw together with a great fitting pair of white jeans...this Express pair was almost flawless from the rise to the ripped knees. Needless to say, I also snagged a pair and will be rocking 'em as much as possible into fall.
Thanks Tiff!

Golden


Happy Monday!
Sorry for the long hiatus, I meant to get back in the swing of things a lot quicker but travel for work and fun kept me offline longer than expected. On that note, I do want to thank everyone who commented on my last post!! It was such a pleasant surprise to see so many new faces checking out my little blog!
 
Anyhow, these were taken during my 4th of July trip to Phoenix - which is coincidentally a blogger's paradise! Everywhere you turn are the most beautiful back drops...which is more than I can say for Omaha! So, naturally, I used my weekend vacay to sunny AZ as the perfect opportunity to show a lot of leg for a day at the spa.
 
How are you staying cool and chic this summer?
