A Look In My Closet: OOTD

It has been a really long time since I have taken pics of my OOTD.  I figured it was about time to give you a look into my closet to see what I have been wearing lately.  The weather here has been up and down with temps.  We have had some really chilly days and then some days that have been perfect in the 75-78 degree range (my fave).  The weather certainly affects what I am wearing.  These are a pretty good example of my overall fall vibe lately, though.  As always, I encourage you to use my outfits as inspiration for your wardrobe.  Take the pieces and parts you like and make it your own.

Fashion Finds: Boots

As I have mentioned about a million times, I have an obsession with the fall.  Not only because of the perfect weather and gorgeous colors, but I really love all things fall clothing.  I have an obscene collection of jackets, boots, scarves, and sweaters, and I can’t stop buying them! I am definitely a shop-a-holic when it comes to fall clothing. I just love it all so much.  You also know that I have an obsession with Target.  It is by far my favorite store.  I think Target is a great place to shop for affordable and adorable boots for fall and winter. They recently released all their new fall shoes and some of them are so good.  A few of them were repeats from last year that were favorites.  I love Target for boots because they are affordable, and they typically hold up really well for me.  I tried to pull a few that I really like this year, but there are many more of all different styles available online and in stores. I also tried to include all the color options for you as well.  Seriously, how cute are these? I am really trying to practice some restraint! 

Amalia Fashion Boots

I bought these Amelia Boots last year in Cognac and was obsessed with them.  I wore them like every day.  I am seriously considering getting them in black and taupe this year! 

Katherine Lace Up Wedge Fashion Boots

I almost bought these Katherine Lace Up Wedges several times last year in Taupe (They have a slight olive green tint to them to me, which I like.).  They are super cute and trendy. 

Cianna Heeled Slouch Bootie

Jayden Double Zip Ankle Bootie

I am totally obsessed with these Jayden Booties in the snake print, which is super on trend right now. 

Briar Block Heeled Bootie

Laniee Heeled Scrunch Fashion Boots

These Laniee Boots were super popular last year and were another one I almost bought several times.

Marlee Knee High Heeled Fashion Boots

I am not sure I love these Marlee Boots in the animal prints but the solids are great options! 

Beatrix Cut Out Heeled Bootie

Cari Cut Out Ankle Bootie

Calyn Puffer Collar Winter Boots

Lilyan Platform Bootie

Callie Lace Up Lug Hiking Boots

These aren’t exactly my style, but I just thought they were fun.

Fashion Finds: Fall Purses

I know that people aren’t really going many places still, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a cute fall purse anyway. LOL! I can come up with a reason for just about everything when it comes to shopping! You have to be ready when the time comes that we can venture out again, right? Plus, I firmly believe that you can’t have too many bags. Who cares if people call you the crazy bag lady? I certainly don’t. Anyway, I found some super adorable bags that are perfect for fall and on into winter, including animal print and plaid!  For the past couple of years, I was on a big crossbody kick. While I still do love all my crossbody purses, I am starting to love some of the bigger tote bags again. Really, though, I just love them all!

Fashion Finds: Amazon

You guys know that I am all about fall, and the fall weather is here! This weekend was amazing with the cooler temps, and I couldn’t be happier. It feels like heaven! Cue the sweaters and boots! I was just fooling around on Amazon yesterday and found myself adding some cute fall items to my cart.  Does anyone else do that? I do it all the time.  I am browsing online and start adding multiple things to my cart until the bill climbs to be a ridiculous number.  Of course, I am not going to checkout with all that in there.  When I am done browsing, I will go through my cart and attempt to narrow things down.  I will click to save some things for later, delete some, and occasionally check out with a few items.  More often than not, though, I never pull the trigger to buy.  I don’t know why I do it because I know that I’m probably not going to buy it.  After all, money doesn’t grow on trees, right? Anyway, I thought I would share some of the adorable things that are currently either still sitting in my cart or that I have added to a wish list for the future. They all have great reviews, too! How cozy do all of these look?

Fall Target Style

Leaves are starting to turn, the temperature is dropping, and I am in heaven! I know it isn’t officially fall yet, but, in my book, fall is here! It is my most favorite time of the year.  Beautifully golden leaves, pumpkins, cozy sweaters, jeans, boots, warm jewel tones, plaid, the start of school…I love it all! I especially love fall clothes.  I may even have a slight obsession with sweaters, boots, and jackets.  I can’t help it.  I just love how cozy they make me feel.  To get all of you in the fall mood (I’m already there!), I have chosen some of my favorites from Target’s new fall releases.  Some of these are just too cute to pass up.  I actually had to limit myself or this post would go on forever.  I left off shoes and jackets for now.  However, if you love those two things like I do, I highly recommend checking them out on Target’s website because there are some adorable ones available right now, and I don’t think they will stay in stock for long.

Shop with Purpose

Over the past couple of years, I have really become more and more aware of the tragedy that is fashion in the world and what a negative impact it has on both the environment and on the people that create it.  I have really tried to seek out socially conscious, ethical brands that are taking a stand and are trying to change the fashion industry as a whole.  Does that mean that I only shop with socially conscious brands? No, I don’t, but I am trying to do better by doing my research and buying better.   Sometimes that means that I have to spend more than I like to, but it makes me proud knowing that I am shopping with a purpose. Whether that is through fair trade, through brands that think about the environmental footprint their products leave, or even brands that give back, I want to do better. Below are some of my favorite ethical/sustainable fashion brands.  I encourage you to think about what you are buying and do your research about brands to see which ones are making a real difference.    

SAVE LANDS

Save Lands is a socially conscious brand that plants 12 trees for every item they sell to help fight pollution and preserve the environment.

Next time you go to purchase something, think about who made it and under what conditions it was made. Think about the impact you are making on the Earth and on the humans who are working to create the things you wear. Can you proudly stand behind it? Choose to shop with a purpose!

Fashion Finds: End of Season Deals

I don’t know about where you live, but the weather here has been a bit bipolar. It can’t make up its mind on whether or not to move towards fall or hang on to the last bit of summer. Whatever temp it is where you are, fall really is just around the corner, and I can’t wait. The good news is that it means that many stores are putting items on clearance to make room for new fall inventory. That means that you can find some really great items for incredible prices. I have scoured the internet looking for the best deals and found some great staples for a good price as well a few trendy items that are heavily dicounted. Hurry and grab them before they sell out of your size! Keep in mind that prices are subject to change at any time.

Fashion Finds: Walmart

It has been a long time since I have posted any Walmart finds.  I don’t usually like to show you things from there unless I have tried them on for quality.  I have to be honest in saying that you can find cute, quality pieces at Walmart, but you have to dig for them.  However, since I can’t really go and try things on anymore, I decided that I would pick a few things from the brands that I know are typically good.  I found you some really cute pieces to get you ready for the fast approaching fall season.  You all know it is my favorite time of the year, and I cannot wait for the cooler temps when I can pull out my fall wardrobe. There are some adorable sweaters that I may have to add to my cart right away!

All Things Monogrammed

For those of you that don’t know, I grew up in the south in two different backwoods towns in Georgia and South Carolina.  If you know one thing about the south, you know that we love our monograms.  We monogram anything and everything that we can think of.  Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite online boutiques to get the cutest monogrammed stuff, Marley Lilly.  If you can think about monogramming it, they probably have it.  What is even better is that they are having a cyber monogram sale right now with some items up to 75% off! However, not everything that I am showing you is included in the sale.  I just chose a few of my favorite things available on their site right now. Marley Lilly also has cute stuff that isn’t monogrammed in case you aren’t into that.  I would say that it is a southern girl’s dream store, though! You will see that they also feed into my leopard print obsession too! I am dying for the leopard print sneakers! Monogram + Leopard Print = Dream Come True

Looks For Less: J. Crew Factory

I was checking out some of J. Crew Factory’s new arrivals yesterday, and it led to outfit making.  There were some pieces that were too cute not to put together.  I just get on this outfit making kick and I can’t stop. I limited myself to just 8 looks this time, but there is so much more cuteness on their site, including tons of clearance items that you can take an extra 60% off with the code BIGSALE. None of these items I picked for these outfits are on clearance due to limited sizing, but they are already at such a great price to begin with. It will be hard to pass them up. Seriously, how cute are these?
