You guys. This week has been a little insane. We’ve had photo shoots, work deadlines, meetings galore…plus a few life hiccups, including RAIN literally every single day (which is why you haven’t seen any outfit pics. How many more times can we post about our trusty anoraks and Hunter boots?).

friday five | best foot forward.

Fall. Has. ARRIVED. Is your wardrobe ready? Most specifically… your footwear? Let’s ensure you have a well-rounded shoe collection for Fall 2015:

Pumps | Go from day to night. Jeans to dresses. Whenever, wherever. Shakira Shakira. In these fun bow pumps.

hm pumps

Sneakers | Your get up and GO (in style) shoe.

Vans Slip On

Booties | Every girl needs a pair of tan suede booties for every day wear. A small, block heel is key for optimal comfort.

Lulu's Booties

Cut Out Booties | We’re obsessing over this trend. A super flattering twist on the classic bootie.

Lulu's how you slice it

Riding Boots | A closet staple every year. Go ahead and splurge on a good pair. They will never go out of style!

friday five | fall, y’all.

So. Yesterday was the first day of fall! {insert squeals and PSLs} Before you dive feet first into your Uggs, let’s look at a few transition outfits. It’s still nearly 80 outside (in Atlanta) after all…

1. A scarf and a bootie go a long way during this transitional period. TGL Hello Fashion

2. We kind of live in neutrals. Especially black and white. Drape a leather jacket over your shoulders and you’re fall ready. TGL Black White

3. Distressed denim, a light sleeve and a fun peep toe bootie. Easy. Cute. Cozy. TGL KC booties

4. A utility vest is super versatile in the fall + winter months. Pair with a short sleeve t-shirt dress while it’s warmish and with jeans and a plaid long sleeve top when it’s cold!TGL Layering

5. Neutrals. All. Day. Easy. Chic. Can you tell I’m obsessing over this Celine bag? TGL Neutral

friday five: links we love.

Whew, we made it through another week! J’s been jetting around the South for work and L’s been getting used to having an infant in the house again…so we’re feeling especially grateful for the next 48-ish hours. Here’s hoping your weekend will be a mix of fancy cheese, champagne and DIY design!

1 // Modern cheese plate // Tailgating spreads don’t have to be fancy. Sometimes all you need is a little cheese and some cornichons. Cupcakes and cashmere shows us how to create a modern cheese plate here.

2 // Champagne // Apparently there are 22 reasons to have champagne on hand at your house. That’s 21 more than we needed.

3 // Sunburst Light Fixture // We’ve both been on renovation rampages at our houses. This (fairly) easy DIY sunburst light fixture from the girls at A Beautiful Mess just might fit into our weekend reno plans.

4 // Stylish Survival Guide // No, we’re not coming to you live from #NYFW (this year)…but this “How To Survive Fashion Month” article by Whitney Port does have real life application for us. And for anyone who happens to be traveling out of town for “work.”

5 // Perfect Sunday Afternoon Project // After a weekend of football (and possibly struggling to re-wire that Sunburst Light Fixture), indulge your creative side and re-style your coffee table. Use this handy tutorial from Domino as a guide. As if we needed another excuse to purchase pink peonies! Happy Friday, yall.
