Happy October! Wow, who can believe that Fall is officially in full swing?!? I can say that I for one am so excited! Fall is by far my favorite season! It’s the cool down after the summer, the time you want to eat and drink all things warm and comforting and cuddle by a warm fire! I also love that it is getting darker a little earlier in the evenings because I don’t feel bad to be sitting on the couch watching Netflix at 7:30 hahah. Yesterday my husband and I organized our pantry and went to a local pumpkin stand and bought pumpkins for my front porch entrance! I don’t know about you all, but I love local pumpkin stands because they always have the WHITE pumpkins and the WARTY pumpkins (2 of my favs!) I also am a huge believer in supporting local farmers so that is also the reason!
Today’s look is one of my FAVORITES I have shot this Fall thus far! I am obsessed with this $45 ruffle plaid B.P. top! This top is Fall in a shirt! The plaid is so pretty and the colors will go well right through Fall into Winter with a sequin skirt for the holidays! I was literally at Nordstrom at the checkout when I saw this top and I had to add it to my purchase! The blouse is cut a little shorter, which I actually like because it shows off a belt and tucks in really well to high waisted pants or skirt! I paired this top with high waisted military pants! The military trend is going strong and these pants were a no brainer for me! They are so comfy, almost “legging-like,” but they had the gold buttons to dress them up! I could have worn a small in these and they would have fit more like leggings, but I went up a size to a medium in these pants so they would be more “trouser-like.” These pants are only $65 and a TOTAL MUST HAVE!
I wanted to show a second look with this top that was more casual so I paired the look with these BlankNYC side stripe jeans Under $100 that I wear all the time! These jeans are so comfy! They are seriously like wearing pajamas they are so soft and stretchy! These jeans fir true to size so don’t size up! They have been in and out of stock so much so I have linked to a couple retailer below under ‘Shop the Post!’ My booties are the Jeffrey Campbell ‘Cromwell’ bootie and they are actually a velvet taupe I got in August that are no longer available, but the bootie is available in black, taupe, white and taupe! These booties are so comfy and have the cutest silver hardware on the front toe and heel to give a little ‘edge’ to the otherwise western style boot! I am OBSESSED! The booties have a short heel, which I LOVE! The taupe and black are both on my list because I love these so much!
