Chambray + Hunters

I could not imagine fall without my Hunter boots. I love wearing these boots with jeans, dresses, and athletic wear. When the weather is chilly, I have cable knit boot socks to help insulate the boots. I was first introduced to Hunters when I lived in Charleston. The city would flood like crazy and these were the only boots that would save us when walking to class. For fall days, this is the perfect outfit especially when playing in the leaves or picking wildflowers. This dress has become a weekly staple for my wardrobe.IMG_3040IMG_3042IMG_3055IMG_3083IMG_3065

Boots

I cannot think of a more iconic shoe, than the boot for fall and winter. For early fall, boots with dresses and skirts work for the season. When it begins to be a little colder, I wear skinny jeans tucked in with boots. Once full on winter hits, layering wool and boot socks keep my feet warm with any outfit. I especially love wearing fleece lined leggings to keep warm.

Riding Boots

My go to brand for riding boots is Frye. I have purchased other brands, including cheaper options, but these boots last and can withstand several seasons. I typically take my boots to be polished or resoled after the season to keep them in top shape. I started out with the Paige boots and eventually expanded my collection to include the black Melissa Button and this year the cognac Melissa Button back zip. I could not be happier with my boots and typically wear these everyday starting in October until March.

Rain Boots

Even though I love my Frye’s, I cannot wear them in snow or layers of fall leaves. During inclement weather, I wear my Hunter rain boots. I purchased the boots with the adjustable back buckle, this gives me more room to add boot socks to keep warm. Through rain or snow, these boots have been a staple in my wardrobe for the past few years. I even wore these on a ski trip to colorado, with boot socks of course to keep me toasty! I also use these boots for decoration in my apartment. The dark green color is perfect for Christmas decor!

Girl’s Night in Leather

Who doesn’t love a fun girl’s night? This is my go to dress for Fall/Winter for girl’s night. This dress can easily be worn with tights and a cardigan or tissue turtleneck for colder weather. I wore a fun statement necklace, booties, and a pink lip to accent this look. IMG_3181IMG_3214IMG_3263IMG_3188IMG_3209IMG_3219IMG_3283

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Thanksgiving dinner is always a difficult occasion for choosing outfits. I want to be comfortable, but also want to wear something nice. My family typically dresses in formal or semi formal outfits for dinner but then immediately changes in sweatpants after. For this year, I am leaning towards the red midi skirt with a chambray shirt. I chose three of my favorite Thanksgiving looks for different types of dinners from formal to causal.

Formal Thanksgiving Dinner

Pink Embellished Top, Pixie Pants, and Wedges

Semi Formal Thanksgiving Dinner

Chambray Shirt, Midi Skirt, and Scarf

Causal Thanksgiving

White Shirt, Jeans, and Cat Flats

1. Camilyn Beth Holiday Collection No other words to describe this line than perfection!

2. Pizzazzerie’s Fall Porch Party Courtney is another Nashville blogger and I love her recent porch party. This is inspiring me for Thanksgiving tablescapes.

3. What You Can and Can You Not Take From a Hotel Room? With several friends in the hotel industry, I found this to be an interesting read.

4. Entertaining Tips from Cupcakes & Cashmere Thanksgiving is around the corner, here are a few tips for dinner parties!

5. How J.Crew Colors Get Their Wild Names It is no surprise I am fan of J.Crew. Jenna Lyons always inspires me. This film and article explaining how J.Crew colors are named is incredible and inspiring.

With the highest in the 30’s and 40’s and a chance of snow in Nashville, I will be bundled up this weekend enjoying some warm cocktails. Have a great weekend!

Causal Stripes

With colder weather creeping up on us, I have transitioned my wardrobe to sweaters and jeans. This is one of my favorite looks for working from home or from a coffee shop, the softer the sweater the better! My Mom convinced me to look around Ann Taylor last week, in the past I have always found stuffy suits that are outdated. However, this time around I found this adorable sweater that was 60% off as well as other modern pieces! J.Crew also recently re-worked their jeans, these are my absolute favorite, very flattering and can be dressed up or down.IMG_0523IMG_0515IMG_0440IMG_0508IMG_0449IMG_0497

Side Note: Erin and I had a little too much fun taking these photos. Normally outfit posts make me very nervous and posing is not a strong point for me. However, Erin kept telling me funny stories that made me laugh the whole time!

Burgundy Polka Dots

Polka dots have always been a staple in my wardrobe, when I saw this top I knew it would soon be a favorite. Dressed up with pixie pants or down with jeans, this versatile top is great for fall. I paired this top with a navy fluted skirt, the shape of this skirt is a little more interesting than your typical pencil skirt. This outfit transitions well from office attire to happy hour. From sweaters to lipstick, I cannot get enough of this burgundy color for fall!
