Fashion Finds: Boots

You all know that Target is one of my favorite places for so many reasons, but it is also my favorite place to get affordable shoes that are cute and on trend. We are smack in the middle of fall, and winter is just around the corner, which means that it is boot wearing time.  I love boots of all kinds. Tall, ankle, winter…you name it! I love them all.  I long for the days when I can wear a cute sweater and boots because those are my two favorite things.  Oh, and did you know that Target gives all of their shoes a real person’s name? I think that is so funny! Anyway, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite boots at Target this season. Any of these would make a great addition to your Christmas wish list.  A few of them are definitely on mine (Katherine, Jamison, and Lanae).  Some of them are out of stock in some sizes online, but they are expected to be restocked so keep checking back or visit your local store.

Fashion Finds

Because I look and feel like death and have for several days, today’s style post will be a little different.  I didn’t get to do my shopping photo shoot like I had planned because I have felt so bad. I am fighting some really nasty stuff. I ended up at an urgent care place on Saturday because it had gotten pretty bad.  They thought that I might have the flu based on how I looked and felt, but they did not test me for it because it was too late to start meds for it at that point.  Instead they are treating me for an upper respiratory infection, but I am pretty sure the meds aren’t working and it might actually be the flu.  I don’t think I slept for more that 5-10 minutes at a time last night.  Despite taking prescription cough meds, I was coughing ALL NIGHT LONG.  Every inch of my torso aches from coughing so much over the past few days.  Needless to say, I have been miserable.  I almost gave up on posting altogether today, but I just couldn’t do that.  I decided that instead I would share with you a few items that have been on my shopping wish list that may or may not end up in my closet in the weeks to come.  I would like to try some of them on before buying, but it doesn’t look like I am going to get to do that any time soon. Maybe a little online retail therapy is just what the doctor ordered! LOL! Anyway, here are some things I am eyeing right now!

Target-Leopard Slip on Sneakers/Wedge Sneakers/Microsuede Heeled Scrunch Riding Boots

I have actually tried these leopard ones on and almost have bought them twice.  I am obsessed! They are so cute! They really need to be mine! All Target shoes are currently 20% off with Target Circle.

Old Navy-Flannel Shirt/Oversized Scarf/Crewneck Sweater/Diamond Quilted Vest

Aren’t these all so cute? It did make me feel a little better just looking at them! I haven’t pulled the trigger yet on any of them, but I have a feeling it is coming soon. Here is to hoping I am back to 100% tomorrow! Happy shopping!

A Look in my Closet:OOTD

Fall is finally here where I live.  We experienced some really hot days at the end of September and beginning of October, but we finally cooled down towards the end of last week. I couldn’t be happier! In case you forgot, fall is my favorite season.  I love the cool, crisp air and the gorgeous changing leaves. Cooler temps means a change in my wardrobe.  It isn’t cool enough yet to pull out my sweaters and stuff, but it is cool enough to wear more than shorts and a top.  Today, I wanted to show you how you can take a plain t-shirt from your summer wardrobe and spruce it up for fall. I did this by adding things I already had in my closet.  It is a peek into my closet but with a theme today.  I took a navy, black, white, grey, and olive green t-shirt and turned them into cute fall outfits.   All I did was add some accessories and cute shoes.

I hope you can get some ideas of how you can take a simple summer t-shirt and turn it into a cute fall outfit by adding accessories and a pair of jeans. 


Looks for Less

I don’t know about all of you, but sometimes I will find a shirt or a skirt or other piece that I fall in love with, but then I will not know what to pair it with.  It will often end up sitting in my closet unworn for a while until I can find something cute to pair it with.  I love when I can walk into a store and see an outfit put together on a mannequin and can just buy the whole outfit.  Well, I have taken the guesswork out of it for you today and put together 10 fall outfits from two of my favorite stores. The clothes come from the The Loft Outlet (50% off online purchase + addition 15% off with code CYBER15 today only), and the shoes and accessories are from Target. They are all so cute, and I am working really hard to resist ordering some of them for myself! I did a little pattern mixing, added touches of animal print, and found some of the cutest accessories.

Style Trends: Animal Print

Last fall I did a post on the ever-popular animal print trend.  I am happy to report that this is a trend that is still going strong and can be seen all over this fall too.  One of the most popular is leopard print, but this season snakeskin print is making a strong showing as well.  I have also seen some giraffe and zebra prints floating around.  Now, I am not saying that you should go head to toe in animal print or that you should even mix animals into one outfit.  In fact, I would go as far as telling you not to do that. There are many different ways that you can follow this trend and add it to your wardrobe without looking like you stepped out of a safari.  Adding a pair of animal print shoes, a belt, earrings, bracelet, or scarf are all ways you can subtly be on trend. You can check out my previous animal post here for some looks that I put together with pieces I already had in my wardrobe last fall. Today I have scoured my favorite stores for some new animal print pieces that I think would make a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

I could keep going because there is just so much out there that I love, but I have to make myself stop. Some other pieces to look for are sweatshirts, utility jackets, denim animal print jackets, and more. If you go to any of your favorite online stores and type in “animal print” in the search box, you will find tons of cute things. Plus, you can find it in most stores as well. I don’t foresee this trend going away any time soon. Happy Shopping!

Fashion Finds: Walmart

I have told you all many times before that Walmart is really trying to step up their style game.  You really have to take your time and look to find them, but you can find some really cute pieces there for great prices. I did a little dressing room photo shoot for you guys with some of the adorable pieces I found over the weekend. I will say that the photo quality is not that great.  My Walmart’s dressing rooms are super small and dark, and the mirror is right next to the wall, so it was hard to get good pics.  I tried to edit them to brighten them a little bit, but they still aren’t great. Oh, I can’t forget to mention the multiple layers of dust on the mirror, which makes the pictures look grainy too. Sorry about that! I just had to go with it.  As you will see from the pictures, plaid, camo, animal print (especially snake print), and shades of cranberry, mustard, and olive are really popular for fall. While I did find some cute clothes, my favorite finds were in the shoe and purse departments. Check them out below.

Top/Pants (Olive Reach)

Top/Pants (Olive Reach)


Top/Pants (All Spice)


These two pieces are both soooo soft. The sweatshirt is lined with fleece inside. 




Sherpa Pullover (This particular one is not available online, but others are.)

Tote: Pink/Camo/Mustard/Grey

Crossbody: Camo/Cranberry


Mini Backpack

Ankle Boots

Grey Wedges Booties/Buckle Booties

Snake Print Booties/Red Booties

Snake Print Mules

Flats: Pink/Leopard/Mustard

Quilted Slip-ons/Leopard Slip-ons

Grey Flannel Slip-ons/Corduroy Slip-ons (not available online)

Don’t count Walmart out when it comes to shopping for clothes, shoes, and accessories.  You can really find some hidden gems if you take the time to look.  Happy shopping!


Fashion Finds: Target

I follow a bunch of people on Instagram that post Target finds all the time.  I have been seeing some really cute things in their feeds, so I decided to head to my favorite store and see what I could find. Surprisingly, a lot of the pieces they had been posting were not at my Target, but I did find my own cute pieces that are perfect for this time of year when the cooler fall temps start creeping in. There were tons of cute cardigans that are perfect for layering during the cool mornings and evenings, and there were several cute dresses.  Animal print is huge again this season and it was all over the place.  I’ll do another post about just animal print coming up. Check out my finds.

Shirt (Green/Black)


Blouse (not available online)/Necklace



I think this dress is the perfect color for fall and would look adorable with a denim jacket. The website says that it is brown, but I think it is more of a burnt orange color. I will caution you, though, because the hook to hold the top together in front to keep from showing everyone your business is not very well made.  It can open very easily, which is not really great for bustier ladies!


I absolutely adored this dress.  However, it was a bit short on me for my comfort level. I considered purchasing it in a smaller size for my teen, but I highly doubt she would wear it.  On the other hand, my husband says that it looks like I stepped out of the Flintstones cartoon, so there’s that. I still think it is really cute! 

Cardigan/Long Sleeve T-shirt/Necklace

Oversized Waffle Cardigan/Long Sleeve T-shirt/Necklace

This cardigan is designed to be oversized.  However, I am wearing the M/L in this picture, but I think if I were to buy it, I would go with an XS/S. I felt like it was a little too oversized for me.  It comes in a few colors and is super soft and lightweight. 


Dress (not available online)/Necklace

This dress is super soft and also comes in pink.  It would be great with a denim jacket or with a cute pair of leggings.  

Dolman Sleeve Sweater/Jeans/Necklace

Leopard Sweater/Necklace


Head over to your local Target and check out these cute pieces and so much more to give your fall wardrobe a little update.

Friday Favorites: TOH Fall 2019 Collection

I know that you are all probably getting tired of hearing about Trades of Hope these days, but it is such a huge part of my life now that it is hard to not write about it.  I promise this will be the last time for a little while.  We just launched our Fall 2019 line entitled Shades of the Savanna, and I have to share with you my favorite pieces from the line.  They are all so good, but I have managed to narrow it down to my favorites in each category.  This line was inspired by a visit to Africa by our founders and is comprised of elements that could be seen on a journey through the African Savanna.  Things like feathers, various stones, hammered metals, and leather are seen throughout the collection. Each piece is beautifully handcrafted by our artisan partners who are working to change their lives every day. These pieces give them hope and power to rise up and live a better life.

Earrings: Trove Earrings

I am totally obsessed with these earrings created by women in Asia who have been rescued from brothels and sex trafficking. They feature tan, brown, and black shades to mimic the pattern of a leopard or tortoise shell in this cool geometric shape. They are extremely lightweight and very much on trend right now. We even have a Trove Cuff that matches them perfectly. 

Bracelet: Sanctuary Bracelet

Women in Haiti create this bracelet with its vibrant colors. These women are now able to keep their own babies instead of dropping them at an orphanage because they had no means to care for them.  This bracelet is created with hand-rolled cereal box beads and hand-painted Haitian clay. This clay is the same clay that they have had to use to make cookies for their children because they didn’t have anything else to feed them. Through this sustainable business they are now able to provide real food for their families and provide for them in ways they never could before.

Necklace: Radiant Necklace Set

While this set is more on the expensive side of our products, it is absolutely gorgeous.  It features 3 separate necklaces of varying lengths that can be worn together or apart.  They feature hammered discs, labradorite stone, and a blue topaz crystal drop.  These necklaces are handcrafted by women in India rising up out of extreme poverty. 

Scarf: Patrika Scarf

This scarf is so unique and versatile.  It is created by women in India using a hand blocking method.  Wooded blocks are carved to created the desired design. Then using natural dyes, these women use the block to stamp the design onto the fabric. How cool is that? Each scarf has slight variations due to the hand blocking technique.  This scarf is large in size and can be worn as a vest, bathing suit cover-up, head wrap, or as a regular scarf. 

HandBag: Rabia Bag

Women in India who are escaping extreme poverty handcrafted this gorgeous genuine leather bag. It comes with a detachable crossbody strap. The inside is lined with a beautiful blue-stripped fabric. It features an interior slip pocket and a zipper pocket. This bag does not even look handmade, but it is.  It looks like any designer bag you would get at a department store, but this bag is handmade and sold through fair trade to empower these women out of poverty. It is so beautiful.  Check out these adorable giraffe and zebra handbag charms that you can add to this bag made by our artisans in Guatelmala.

Home Decor: Batwa Basket Set

These baskets are handcrafted by women from the Batwa Tribe in Uganda who have been forced out of their native land as a conservation effort to protect the mountain gorillas. These people are treated like animals. Their partnership with TOH has given them dignity and a means to survive. These women weave each basket by hand using tall grasses and natural materials as dyes.   It takes 2 weeks to complete one basket!   Aren’t they adorable?

To check out the entire Fall 2019 collection and more, you can visit my website.  These truly are some of my new favorite things and the stories behind them melt my heart.  Aren’t they all so great?


Vest: An Accessory

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fall-tastic weekend.  It was absolutely gorgeous here.  Fall, my favorite time of year, is in full swing and the weather this weekend was just perfect. There was a cool fall breeze, lots of sunshine, and breathtaking colorful trees and brightly colored leaves swirling in the wind.  I knew that I missed fall when we were down in the south but I didn’t realize just how much I missed it until this weekend.  Of course, today, Monday of all days, it is gloomy and rainy outside.  Hopefully, it won’t last and the sun will be back soon.  My kids are out of school today so it seems like the perfect day to curl up and watch Hallmark Christmas movies or read a book.  Anyone else obsessed with Christmas movies?  They are my absolute favorite, and I love that they are already playing.  Of course, I could probably watch them year round.  So good!

Ok, enough about the weather and stuff. I’m sure you are getting tired of hearing me talk about the fall all the time, so let’s get on to the topic of today’s post.  One of the things that I love to wear in both the fall and winter are vests.  I want you to get it out of your head that vests are just something you wear to keep you warm.  I want you to look at them as an adorable accessory.  I love wearing vests as an accessory to my outfit versus just a cold weather item like a jacket. Of course, they will keep you warm depending on the thickness and type of vest, so if you’re in a warm area, you will want to avoid the thicker, puffy or fur-lined vests. I’ve worn vests for years, and I always had people asked me when I’m was inside at work if I was cold because I had a vest on.  My answer was always no, and they would give me a puzzled look.  You guys, vests don’t have to be taken off when you are inside unless you are super hot because they can be part of your outfit. I want you to get it out of your head that they come off inside because that’s what this post is all about. Yes, keeping you warm is a great purpose for them, but it’s not the only purpose of a vest nowadays.  Vests are being made to be more stylish so that you can look cute.

What I tried to do for you today is to show you different types of vests in different shapes and materials.  With each of us the vests I own, I have I shown you two different ways that you can wear it. Now the vests that I have to show you are ones that I’ve had for years and many are no longer available.  I have found you some more options that are similar. What I really want you to do with all of my fashion posts and photos is to get inspiration.  I will tell you that I do that all of the time.  I will see an outfit or item of clothing on Pinterest, Facebook, or on other blogs that I will either save to a Pinterest board or take a screen shot of; and then I will use them as inspiration for my own outfits. When I’m out shopping later, I can go back and look at it and use it to grow my own wardrobe.  I don’t want to necessarily copy somebody else’s look exactly. I want to make it my own and maybe add my own personality or colors so that I can achieve a similar look.  I will try to do another post to show you how I use other outfits as inspiration at another time. Just be open-minded and see how you can add these things into your own wardrobe.  I will tell you that 90% of what I will show you today are items that I already had in my closet.  It’s just all about using what you have and changing it up a little.  I am all about versatility and getting the most bang out of your buck.

The Thin Quilted Vest

This particular vest is very lightweight and one that is great for the fall when it’s not super cold or for my peeps down south where it never really gets cold.  This vest has a fitted shape to it, which will help define your figure and make you look slimmer. This is also a great vest to wear over bulkier clothes like sweaters.

The Puffer Vest

Here I have the exact same vest in two different colors.  These particular vests are more of a muted color and not shinny like some puffer vests can be.  Again, this is an example where you can use these outfits as inspiration and get vests in colors that you love, and you can decided if you like the shinier materials or not.  This type of vest is going to be pretty warm.  If you are in a warmer climate and like the look of this vest, I would recommend that you wear it with something lightweight underneath. I would not wear this type of vest with bulky sweaters. These vests are going to be thicker and more boxed shaped so, again, avoid wearing it with super bulky clothes underneath.

The Classic Herringbone Vest

This is probably one of my favorite and most versatile vests.  You can literally wear it with almost anything and still be cute.  This vest isn’t super lightweight or super heavy and is a great vest for most climates.  I love pairing this vest with a blanket scarf as well and wearing it both zipped and unzipped.

The Basic Black Vest

Now this particular vest is pretty warm because it has a furry lining inside. The one I have found for you that is similar does not have the furry lining but it does come in a variety of colors.  This vest is quilted and goes with many things.  It can be dressed up or dressed down depending on what you pair it with.

The Short, Fitted Puffer Vest with Detachable Hood

This vest is similar to the two green and red puffer vests above in thickness and warmth.  The difference is that this one is more fitted than the other two and is a little shorter in length.  This particular vest also has a detachable hood with a faux fur trim.  I did not take any pictures with the hood because it somehow got lost in the move or is in a box I have yet to open, but the hood just adds another fun detail.

The Soft Cotton Vest

Unfortunately, I have had this vest for a while and the company that I got it from went out of business, but I wanted to show it to you as an option for a more vibrant color and different material.  This vest is super soft, lightweight, and made from cotton so it has a different feel than the other vests.  A fleece vest would have a similar feel and look as this one.

It can totally be dressed up or dressed down.  You will be cute and cozy at the same time!



Scarves, Scarves, and More Scarves

I think I have mentioned a few times now how much I like scarves.  I wear them year round.  You can wear the heavier materials in the fall/winter and the lightweight materials in the spring/summer without feeling too hot. When the springtime comes around, I will show you how to wear scarves in warmer weather.  Many people are afraid of scarves because they don’t know how to wear them. I am going to show you a few different ways to wear scarves that are pretty easy and will add a little pizzazz to your wardrobe.  Now I know that scarves come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles.  The ones that I am going to show you today can be styled in more than one way.  I will show you my 3 favorite types of scarves. If you have a scarf that is a different shape and size than what I am showing you, it is very easy to get ideas on how to style it by doing a simple search on Pinterest.  I have also included a few ways on my Pinterest board that you can check out here.

The Infinity Scarf

The trusty infinity scarf is probably the easiest for people to style.  An infinity scarf is one that has the ends sewn together to form a circle with the scarf.  Infinity scarves come in all different sizes and materials.  I will show you a few different ones and how to style them. Don’t get stuck in the rut of only wearing the infinity scarf one way. I love how versatile they can be.

First up is a silky, voluminous infinity scarf in my favorite animal pattern.  This scarf has made an appearance on the blog before because I love it so much. There are several ways to wear it. This particular scarf is fairly long which makes it easier to style in multiple ways. Check out this videos to see three ways to wear it.

Super easy, right? You can do it!

This is another infinity scarf.  This particular one is made from felt and is super soft.  It is not as voluminous as the leopard one, but it can be worn in some of the same ways.  For the first look, I actually wrapped the scarf around three times instead of the typical two times for a tighter, warmer look.  The second look is the same pull-through method as I did with the leopard scarf above.

This infinity scarf is what I would call a tube infinity scarf.  It has a much smaller hole in the center and, therefore, doesn’t work well to twist it over your head more than once.  It looks more like a tube shape than a circle. This is a super stretchy, fringe scarf.  It can be worn as a typical scarf once around your neck or as a shawl with it pulled further down on your shoulders.


Finally for our infinity scarves, I have another tube infinity scarf.  It has a very small hole in the center and is short in length so it is tighter to your neck. It is super warm and fuzzy. In fact, I wore this scarf yesterday and I was pulling fuzzier out of my mouth all day! There is really only one way to wear this scarf and that is just once around your neck. This is the kind of scarf that you want to wear when it’s really cold outside and you want to be warm. It is made from a soft knit material and is so comfy.

The Square Blanket Scarf

This is a scarf that is typically larger in size and is in the shape of a square when opened all the way up. It is going to be a bit bigger and bulkier than most infinity scarves, and it will keep you pretty warm depending on the material.  There are multiple ways that you can wear this type of scarf as it is very versatile.

This square blanket scarf is a favorite because it is the classic black and white scarf that can be paired with almost anything.  Any color top would look great with this scarf. Check out the videos below to see how I achieved these looks.

This is just a sampling of ways that you can wear this type of scarf.  The possibilities are endless.  Just use your imagination or find more ways on Pinterest!

Blanket 2

Here is just an example of a another square blanket scarf with a little more color.  I love these colors for fall.

The Rectangle or Oblong Blanket Scarf

This one is probably my favorite because the ways you can wear it are limitless.  It is a very versatile scarf.  This scarf is in the shape of a rectangle and is very long which makes it easier to style and allows you to have more options.

This particular scarf that I am wearing is thick and a little heavier material with fringe at the ends.  It will definitely keep you warm, and I love the vibrant colors. Check out this video to see how I achieved these looks.

I bet you never knew that you could wear one scarf in so many different ways! I think my favorite is turning it into a vest.


This scarf is also a rectangle, but it is a little more lightweight and not as thick and warm as the one above. The colors in this one are a little more muted, but it still adds a dash of color to your outfit. I am wearing this one with a belt, but I could also wear it all of the other ways that I’ve show above.

Time to Shop

There are so many scarves that are available for purchase and so many ways to style them.  My best advice is to stand in front of a mirror and play around with it.  Who knows?  You may come up with a new cool way to style your scarves. There really is no right or wrong way to style them.  It is up to your personality and what makes you feel good. I have linked a few scarves that I love below, but you can really find scarves anywhere, especially this time of the year. Go out and shop! Remember if you see a really cute lightweight scarf out there now, grab it with spring and summer in mind.

Old Navy has some really cutes scarves right now on sale for 40% off with the code STYLE.  These infinity scarves come in a variety of colors and look so comfy. Here are some really cute blanket scarves as well. Go check these out and more!

Target is a great place to find scarves and is where several of mine above came from in past seasons. I actually got the white and black one there a month ago in the dollar spot (You know, that trap of cuteness right when you walk in the door?). You can shop here for all of their scarves or go in the store and try them out.  I don’t know about you, but I like to know what they feel like before I buy them.  I don’t want anything scratchy around my neck! I like the subtle sparkle to this infinity scarf. I also really like the vibrant colors of this square blanket scarf. This is a great oblong scarf if you like more muted colors.

Amazon is another place to find tons scarves in all shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns. There are endless amounts of blanket scarves on there.  This is one of my favorite oversized blanket scarves that comes in a variety of colors. Here are some super cute infinity scarves that come in solid colors and prints. This is a great option for a rectangle/oblong scarf in a variety of colors.

Let me see what you come up with. You can post pics in the comments here or over on my Facebook page. I would love to see!
