SIMPLE & PINK...

TOP: Free People (on super sale!!) // PANTS: AG // SHOES: Vince Camuto // BAG: Gucci 

A classic fall (and winter) outfit that never gets old is pretty easy to put together. It consist of your favorite jeans, comfy booties, and an oversized sweater. I snagged this sweater in the white version last week because it was on MAJOR sale! It's currently only $60 and it's steal. The sweater is thick, cozy, and the quality is perfect. It's also long enough to wear with leggings as well! 

Thanks for stopping by!

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A MINI SKIRT...


  CAMI: Topshop (major sale) // JACKET: Blank NYC // SKIRT: Free People  // SHOES: Vince Camuto // BAG: Gucci // OUTFIT 2: TOP: Free People // SKIRT: Free People // SHOES: Sam Edelman // 

Mini skirt seem to be extremely popular this season compared to other years. The skirt silhouette is feminine, but at the same it can be styled numerous ways. 

Currently, my favorite way to style a mini skirt, is with a pair of knee high boots and a thin sweater (second look). The look is overall really sleek and the shoes add warmth (you can skip out on the uncomfortable tights that never seem to actually keep you warm). If you have a neutral colored skirt, find something that is similar in tone. Everything this season seems to be more monochromatic and a neutral monochromic outfit is easy to put together and trendy. With a statement skirt, styling it with a simple and pretty crop sweater make your outfit really chic and trendy. 

The most classic way to style a mini skirt, I think, is with a white cami and a pair of your favorite booties. It's basically what you also wear with your cardigan and jeans. I threw my moto jacket over it to finish the simple but stylish look. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

OUTFIT ON REPEAT...



DRESS: Express (love this one) // SHOES: Sam Edelman // BAG: Tory Burch

This dress has been worn an excessive amount of time so you can say that it was worth every single penny. (It's currently 40% off making it under $45!). I've been on the search for an off the shoulder dress so when I saw this one, it felt like it was meant to be. I wore it to the apple orchards with hunter boots and it was so comfy! I wore it probably the day after to work with these boots and it was the perfect way to dress it up. 

Sweater dresses are a great way to incorporate fall trends into your style because if it's warm, you can still stay cool by adding a pair of booties. On the other hand if it's freezing like how it is in Colorado, you can wear knee high boots and a plaid blanket scarf. One thing I do have to point out is that this dress does not look great with a  coat over it. It isn't one of those OTS dress that could convert to a cowl neck. 

Thank you so much for reading!

THE SWEATER THAT WILL GO WITH EVERYTHING...






TOP: BP (under $40) // BOTTOMS: AG (similar here) // SHOES: Sam Edelman // BAG: Louis Vuitton 

I think I may have found the perfect white sweater that goes well with just about everything. The sweater itself has a fuzzy texture to it and is super soft. I also wore this sweater with a pleated velvet skirt and it looked really great together. (I'll be sharing that outfit later this week). It's not a crop sweater but can mimic as one when needed. I only packed a few items when shooting this outfit but I would've probably thrown on some cute earrings and a layered necklace with this outfit for more glam. 

There are a lot of great sales happening this weekend and I can't wait to share them with yall tomorrow. Be sure to check back Friday morning. Liam and I have plans to go to Denver and meet up with Jenna to take photos while the fall leaves are still red and golden.

EVERYDAY COMFORT...




TOP: Free People (love this one too!) // JEANS: AG // SHOES: Vince Camuto (on sale!) // BAG: Louis Vuitton 

It's surreal that it's already October! That means that I've been living in Colorado for almost a whole year. I feel like I barely just moved here. The best part about living in Colorado is definitely the weather. Cold weather has officially arrived so our family is seizing every opportunity to do all things fall. Yesterday, we went apple picking for the first time and it was actually pretty fun. I had never seen an apple tree before, so to see tons of small and large apples all over the place was pretty cool. Liam was having the time of his life too. He was a little nervous at first but once he saw apples that he could pick, there was no stopping him. He kept calling them bubbles at first but later on saw that they were apples. We probably tried to leave twice, but he kept pointing to all the green apples in the back that were at the perfect height level for him to grab. 

I know that overview of our Sunday family day was totally not on topic for today's post but I just had to share. Onto today's outfit...this thermal. I'd bought a Free People thermal last year and it was all I wore. I snagged this one last month when it was price matched and love it! I'm wearing a size small but I probably could have gotten an XS because the length is pretty long. The first time I wore it, I actually wore it with my zella leggings and sneakers running errands. Even though it's a thermal, it can easily be dressed up like how I did with jeans and booties. You can add a moto jacket or cardigan for an even more elevated look. It's honestly so comfortable and great for layering when winter arrives.
