Happy Tuesday, ya’ll!! Who else feels like this month is seriously FLYING BY!! I don’t know if it is because I am so busy with work and home, but I feel like I can’t catch my breath DAILY and then when I do get a second to stop and thin and my bliss is interrupted with a new task needing to be done. I don’t know if it is because I am getting older, but I just want a day to STOP LIFE and enjoy the leaves falling, the crisp morning with my coffee and just sit on my porch in the swing! I honestly did not sit down today to say any of this, but I just wanted two seconds to decompress… Am I the only one?!?! Please tell me “NO” (hahahah). Anyway with the Fall in full force and the leaves changing, I did decide to spend today’s post sharing one of my favorite trends this season: LACE-UPs! Not only are lace-up sweaters HUGE, but lace up pants and shoes as well! Today I wanted to share two sweaters that were a BIG hit on my Instagram and I had multiple texts about where to find! So today I am sharing one lace-up sweater Under $50 and the other is Under $200. The price difference is quite shocking I know, but both sweaters have their benefits and I own both 😉 The first sweater I am going to share is more affordable version and it is the ChicWish Lace-up Sweater. I have blogged a few amazing tops from ChicWish and they are wonderful! This company does expensive pieces at affordable prices and they do it WELL! If you are wanting the look that wears and photos similar this one is for YOU!! The other sweater is the 525 lace-up sweater. This sweater is ribbed, fits amazing to the body (runs a little small) so go up a size, but the form and fit are unmatched! The ChicWish sweater is longer and more full on the body where this one is shorter and more fitted! I love both! The ChicWish can be worn with leggings and this one can not without showing your butt. 525 is a brand that has always done fur vests and sweaters and they DO IT WELL!! To be honest, 525 is my go-to for all sweaters! Their price point is a little higher, but it is a sweater that you will carry from season so season! I have had one of their fur vests for 3 years and it still looks as good as the day I purchased it! So, you can’t go wrong with either! If you are a trendy shopper and like to have the look for less and still be getting a great sweater, go for the ChicWish one. If you want a longer lasting more fitted structured sweater go with the 525 sweater! I could not make the choice and that is how I ended up with BOTH 🙂
Now on to the shoes! I have been wearing this Vince Camuto ‘Bodel’ pump RELIGIOUSLY!! I am excited to say, this pump is ON SALE and Under $100!!! This shoes does run true to size and is SOOOO comfy! I wore this pump to Atlanta to Apparel Market where all you do is walk and my feet barely hurt after hours! This shoes also comes in a few other colors! The boot I am wearing in the cupcake shoppe photo is one I have blogged a lot, but it is the Joie ‘Dalton’ bootie and it fits perfect to your foot and is so comfy! I also paired both looks with the pair of jeans you all probably question if I wash because I wear them like EVERYDAY is the AG 10 years distressed legging! I do practically wear these jeans DAILY!! These jeans are worth the money! They also run true to size!
Daniel Wellington, I have mentioned them before, but they make the prettiest unisex watches and they make the PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT!! Just for you all they have given you a 15% OFF CODE ON ANY style with code: Hollyday !! I have a few, but right now I am LOVING their new Classic Black Collection and I have to 40mm Black with Rose Gold and get so many compliments on this piece!
The pumpkins!!! If you all are in need of pretty pumpkins in the Raleigh area, head over to to Shepards Way Farms in North Hills near the JC Penny! They have to most beautiful setup and WIDE ARRAY of pumpkins in ALL shapes and sizes! I LOVE all pumpkins, but especially the white ones! What are your favorite pumpkins?!?!?
I hope you all have a GREAT week and maybe we can all slow down and get to enjoy the beauty all around us this time of year! I have also created a Fall Shop Tab for you all and one Under $100 so check those out as well if you need a little inspiration!
