Gah I LOVVVEEE this time of year – the last few weeks have been gloriously cool, and it really feels like the holidays are about to begin! Here’s a look at some of my favorite outfits from last week. I tend to do “capsule dressing”, buying a few new pieces every season that work with 1) what I already have and 2) also work with each other. It makes getting dressed in the morning so much easier! Today I’m sharing a few of my new pieces, and I’ll share a few more next week. As you can see, I gravitate towards classic shapes and bright, clear colors. Click each photo to shop the look, or (if you’re looking at this on our website), click each piece in the product widget below the photo.
This look is pretty typical of my style – I love a great blazer paired with jeans. This belt was a definite splurge but I have worn it almost every day this fall. Every girl needs a navy blazer in her closet, and this one from J Crew Factory fits perfectly. My striped tee is another favorite J Crew purchase – there are a few sizes left. If those don’t work for you, this one is almost identical and also comes in a red stripe – cute!
I’m always looking for a great button-down – but they are HARD to find! So many of them are bulky and bother me under sweaters…so I was super excited when I found this polka-dot one from J Crew Factory. It’s got a lot of stretch but it’s not clingy. It works great alone or under a sweater. I love it so much that I got it in two colors (see below). My favorite distressed skinnies are sold out everywhere, but I found some other options for you from 7 For All Mankind, Free People and New York & Co. And that’s my favorite bag in the background – you can read more about why I love it here.
Time for a seasonal bar cart refresh! Thanksgiving will be here in exactly two weeks, and I’m in the process of fall-ifying my bar set-up. My sweet friend Kate (a super talented gift-giver who always knows exactly what I want!) gave me some adorable cocktail napkins from Target for my birthday, and those inspired me to nose around for a few more fall pretties. Look what I found at Target!
Turn up the beet – I DIE! Mini-metallic pumpkins and acorns will look so cute scattered around my cart. And I love those orange napkin rings – just the thing to pretty up a fall table. Share your fall finds with us by tagging us on Insta! xo
Wait, has it been a MONTH since we posted? Insert that little chin-stroking emoji here.
I *love* dressing for fall – you can do so much more as far as layering, mixing prints and patterns, and playing with color. Here’s a look at some of my recent fall outfits – shop by clicking each photo or by clicking the items below!
My exact OTK boots are from my boutique Dish Statesboro (get 10% off their website when you use promo code GLITTER!), but I found several other others that are super similar.
It was so cold for our church’s Harvest Festival a few weeks ago that I had to wear FOUR layers – totally insane for October in South Georgia! These duck boots are also available at Dish Statesboro and are only $25 – WHAT.
Celebrated my birthday last week in one of my favorite fall looks. My emerald coat is several years old, but this one from J Crew Factory is the exact same color! This wool pencil skirt (also from J Crew Factory) runs a little big – I suggest sizing down.
My Sorel “Cate the Great” hidden wedge boots were an investment, but every time I wear them I fall in love all over again. And this camo field jacket is a TOTAL steal at $44.
Hope everyone is having a great fall so far and enjoying this cooler weather! xo
Well, I survived Monday – and that feels like a huge accomplishment these days. I’ve been wearing a lot of rompers recently – the one-piece thing is SO EASY (perfect for when you are lazy/busy), and there are some great transitional rompers out there right now. I wore two of my favorites last week – let’s take a look back…
This lace-up chambray romper feels so RIGHT right now – I’m wearing it with wedges here for dinner with my mom, but I would also pair it with sneakers for one of Joe’s soccer games. It’s super comfy and not too short.
Hmmm…can you tell I really love my ankle-wrap wedges? I wore this dressy romper to an engagement party Saturday night. I wasn’t sure about the color at first – I typically pick black for nights out, and this color felt kind of bold. But I do love how “fall” this color feels, and I can’t wait to wear it with taupe over-the-knee boots when it gets cooler. WHEN WILL IT GET COOLER?
Here are some more of my favorite rompers – all of these transition perfectly into fall, are under $100 and there are full size runs available in each. Hope everyone has a great rest of the week! xo
We’re settling back into a routine after a crazy few weeks that included two birthdays and one hurricane evacuation for me (thankfully, we did not have any damage at home!) and a bachelorette party for Jennifer. I’ve pretty much been living in casual basics these days (including these amazing flares from Dish) – take a look and shop my favorites below!
Now, let’s try to get through week with no major disasters! xo
It has rained literally EVERY DAY this summer – and every single day – it’s forced me to up my rainy-day outfit game. I love this embroidered baseball hat from Dish (I’m also feeling this satin one from Forever 21, which is super similar!), and this lightweight camo jacket has become my go-to layer. It’s under $40 and is stocked in all sizes! I’ve been wearing these TOMS Memphis sunnies for over two years. They fit my face perfectly (no bending or molding necessary), and they never slide off my ears. These come in a bunch of cool color combos; the tortoise ones like mine are on major sale right now!
The Joes and I spent a weekend in Atlanta, doing some tourist-y things, hanging out with Jennifer, Jay and James and attending the christening of our sweet friend Corinna’s daughter Quinn. Little Joe broke hearts in his pink shorts and blazer (his is from Janie & Jack, and I couldn’t find it online…this one from J Crew is similar). Click the photo for the other details, including a few options for his Vineyard Vines shirt.
GOODNESS, you guys. I know I begin every post this way…but we have had a LOT going on. It’s hard for a girl to find the time to post! On top of our usual work and family commitments, Jennifer and I spent last weekend in Atlanta, buying fall inventory for Sole and Dish, taste-testing tacos and perfecting our frose recipe. Here’s a look at the styles and products we’ve been loving lately…
Next morning we headed to AmericasMart to buy some fall pretties for my boutiques Sole and Dish. In honor of National Rose Day (I told you, it’s a real thing), I schlepped all my stuff in this Old Navy tote. Oh, and now it’s on sale for $8. You’ll spend more on your bottle of rose!
Great minds think alike…we both bought these fun sleep shorts and wore them Saturday night. UNPLANNED. I went preppy with pink with green leopards, and Jennifer stuck with her siganture palm print. Both prints are still available in all sizes.
