Fall is fast approaching and chock-full of my favorite things… college football, haunted houses, and pumpkin spice lattes. While many of us are ready to go back-to-school shopping for the inevitable drop in temperatures, try transitioning your summer pieces into fall with these money-saving tips.
Fall Trend 1: Plaid
How to transition? Window-pane print has been popular all summer long with no plans to slow down heading into fall. The black and white pattern makes the perfect backdrop to showcase your accessories and matches almost everything in your closet. Tory Burch loves this print, but Windsor Store makes this ivory checkered romper for only $34.90.
Fall Trend 2: Structured Bags
How to transition? A Celine purse is chic year-round, but you won’t break the bank carrying this almost identical $35 alternative from Windsor Store.
Fall Trend 3: Matte Red Lips
How to transition? Tone down the bright red lip by opting for a more crimson color as the weather cools. Stila makes an amazing no-smudge liquid lip-stick, but for only $2.99 Elf makes an awesome substitute.
How to transition? Floppy hats can be found all over the beach during the summer months, but swap the straw for felt heading into fall. Free People makes the perfect wide-brimmed hat, but for only $24, ASOS’s version is on-trend as well.
Happy Friday! Who is ready for a long weekend? And not just any weekend… the start of college football season! I am hitting the road to Atlanta this afternoon to enjoy some Auburn football with my mom and some NASCAR with my dad. I hope y’all have a fun and safe Labor Day holiday!
Alas, the countdown to Labor Day has begun and it will soon be time to retire all things short, flowy, and summery. The mornings in NC have been a bit crisp, but the afternoons are still sweltering. This Naomi Dress from C.C. Lake has been my go-to because it pairs perfectly with a denim jacket and tan booties or on its own with sandals. Now, time for Fall (and gameday) outfit planning!
I am hitting the road to Bristol Motor Speedway, but I wanted to pop in to share this Kate Spade giveaway I am doing with a group of amazing bloggers. Just enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below for a chance to win and if you’re not following these girls you’re missing out!
I’m sharing a couple looks this week of the damage done when NASCAR is under a rain delay… It is always an excuse to go shopping! This particular excursion was at the mall across the street from Daytona International Speedway and luckily for me, I discovered the stores Cotton On and Windsor Store and was able to keep myself adequately entertained
I am so excited to share another look from one of my favorite boutiques, BohoBlu. This skirt is beyond comfortable and on a side note… this was the outfit I wore when I was the oldest person at the Jesse McCartney concert a couple weeks ago :/ Regardless, you can get $5 off this skirt or anything from BohoBlu using the promo code TAKEFIVE.
I’m also thrilled to be wearing some of my amazing photographer’s pieces from South Hill Designs. This bar necklace and wrap bracelets can be found on her site here.
Happy Tuesday! There’s nothing like a giveaway to get the week started off on the right note. Along with a group of fabulous bloggers, we’re giving away $150 to Lulu*s. Be sure to check out my Instagram to see the rules
Also, a couple of you have been asking for the links to the Charming Charlie watches I posted Sunday. They’re only $18 each so I had to get both!
