It’s nowhere near cold enough to wear this look in Houston yet- but I can pretend! I love summer and all but am so so ready to switch out my closet and bring out all my fall clothes! I live for the days where it’s okay to walk around in a oversized sweater and leggings and be considered “fashionable”! I can’t wait for winter this year, for more than one reason. One, of course, is the obvious fact that leggings will again be a “thing” (haha!). Besides that, I can’t wait to bring out my favorite over the knee boots from last year. I rounded up some similars- all of which are under $200!
Enough about my boots- can we talk about this top? I’m all about the over-dramatic sleeves right now! They’re the perfect way to add a little extra fab to any outfit. Tops like this are great for so many occasions- from brunch with the girls to a last minute event. I have worn this top to both of these & got so many compliments. Wearing such a statement top is great when you want to look effortless with some denim & call it a day! For some extra fab, pair with some wide-legged pants or a bold printed skirt.
Since it doesn’t really get cold here until way later in the season, I’ve become a pro at mixing my summer & fall wardrobes together! I layer everything, mixing my cropped denim and spring tops with winter favs that I am anxious to wear. For example, it’s obviously not going to (probable ever this season) get cold enough here in the H to wear these over the knee boots, but I can mix them with all of my summer items just fine. I’ve mastered pretending that it’s cold in Houston, even though it is going to be 80+ for a while still.
I am so exited to go fall shopping this year, I’ve been so good at not buying everything I see yet. I am so ready for comfy cardigans, baggy sweaters & everything else! My fall essentials will be on the blog soon, but for now you a shop the look in this photo! The top is on sale (like $12 sale), so be sure to grab it before it’s gone! This one-shoulder trend is one that we can still wear for while here- so all of them going on sale right now is beyond tempting!
The fact that it’s October & I can wear this is partially okay, partially not (LOL). It’s still not cold enough in the H to wear suede boots, but I’m okay with that if it means I get to wear my favorite dresses a little longer. I found this shirtdress over at Nordstroms a little while ago and have lived in it ever since. Okay- bad news first: this particular style is currently not available, but I linked some similar styles below. Drum roll for the good- Nordstroms is offering 40% off for the next week, so my entire look is on super sale!
This shirtdress is the perfect length for the office and is a super easy switch from day to night just by switching shoes! I love simple yet fab pieces like this, it makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! This dress doesn’t take much to look amazing on anyone and like I said, can be switched up too. For the day time, you can wear this look with booties as I did. For night, switch to some pumps, or even some full boots & you are good to go. P.S.- Did I mention dresses like this are (for obvious reasons) my go to?!
Did I mention the weather? As much as I say I’m happy I can still currently wear this look (which I am), I still miss the North during the holidays and winter. There’s nothing like a true Autumn- Thanksgiving is just not the same when you can wear shorts outside and don’t need a sweater on (insert sad face emoji here).
I can deal with not having snow, but there’t just something about “winter” that I will always miss living in the H. For now, my pretending it’s cold outside will just have to do.
Okay- so we all know comfort is totally my thing. Most days, I can be caught wearing something casual and dressing it up in the easiest way possible! This look is no different- this shirt is pretty much like wearing a big sleep shirt all day! It’s super simple but can be easily dressed up as well. Perfect for running errands, or even a quick lunch with the girls- this look is def one that I wear often.
For this look I went to my go-to over-the-knee suede boots & a waist wrap. Perfect for me, I’m always cold so tying a long shirt tee around my waist always comes in handy. Accessories for this look were minimal (as always), again keeping it simple. A watch for me is a must & I am almost always wearing a pair of studs. This is one of my fav looks for “Houston Fall” aka not cold at all but late enough in the year that I can pretend it’s cold outside by wearing boots (haha!).
As much as I complain about the “fall” here in Houston, I secretly love it. The only thing I wish we had was snow- the holidays just don’t seem the same without it. Also- I wish that the leaves changed colors faster. At least that way, I could “pretend” that winter was coming. Anyways- none of that really happens here in Houston, so I will just have to continue pretending.
One thing I do love, though, is that since I don’t wear my boots as often- they last forever! That doesn’t stop me from getting new ones though, especially when they are on sale! I have rounded up my current fav boots all under $100 below. Even if you currently don’t need any- Christmas is right around the corner and I’m sure someone does!
Hello! I am back from traveling for work all last week. I went to the Big Apple (so much YASS), so took a break from ze blog for the week. It was so nice in New York, but I am just not a cold weather girl anymore. I was ready to be back in the H with my dog, my Starbucks & 70 degrees.
Semi Side Note: So many of you ask why I don’t blog when I am on my work trips & my response is simple- I’m working! I love my job just as much as I love my blog but don’t mix the two for many reasons. Both deserve their own attention, so I plan on keeping it that way.
As beautiful as it was in NY, I was actually happy to come back home! It was cold enough to wear my favorite boots, as well as some fur (again- YAS), but the weather here in Houston is currently beautiful! It’s not cold & not hot, but just somewhere in between. Basically, the weather is perfect.
This week, I totally plan on bringing out some of my go-to sweaters, just for the fun of it. This one is for sure one of my favs, from one my favorite online boutiques. I added it with a denim dress, because that’s what you do in weather like this- mix sweaters & dresses!
This dress I’ve had for a while- it really casual so I kind of keep it that way. I don’t ever wear it with heels & always keep it simple with flats or kicks. This look is perfect for a casual day, or even running errands. Speaking of errands, Thanksgiving literally came so soon! I can’t believe it is already towards the end of 2017! The days, weeks & months seem to go by faster and faster. I was always told this, but now it seems like a true statement! Basically what I’m trying to say is that this year is almost over ya’ll (OMG)! Cray-Cray!
