By now, y’all know that I love color. It’s very rare that you’ll find me in neutrals, but I will ALWAYS make an exception when I find pieces that are as classic as these. I recently fell in love with the color combo of gray, tan, and white – it is so chic! Each of these pieces can be worn time and again with almost everything in your closet. This genuine suede jacket, for instance, I purchased almost three years ago and continue to wear season after season.

But let’s get to the important stuff – the Labor Day sales! They have started early this year, which is a fabulous surprise. That way I can shop now and spend time with friends and family over the holiday weekend. For now, I’m planning on heading to Darlington to watch Jeremy’s race, but I’m hoping to convince him to pop over to Charleston for a couple days afterwards because it’s so close. So without further ado, here are the sales you don’t want to miss!

Getting Ready for a GNO with Rotari

Come get ready with me, y’all! With a handful of girls’ trips on the horizon, I thought I would share some must-haves for getting glammed up. I don’t know about y’all, but getting ready with friends is just as fun as hitting the bars with them. It’s when we get to catch up and share things that we dare not mention in front of our beaus. And while a pop of gloss, some Lil Wayne, and a Four Loko was all I needed in my twenties, my tastes have matured a bit in my thirties.

Since rushing is a top pet peeve when I have a night out planned, I make sure to set some time aside to really perfect my look. I tend to pop a bottle of rosé, relax in a bath, then turn on a favorite podcast and put my face on. Read on to find out all the products I use!

Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you guys all had a great weekend. Jeremy and I spent the weekend in the mountains – first in Bristol for the race, then to Tuckasegee for a wedding, to Sylva for photos, and finally Cherokee for dinner and some gambling at Harrah’s. Phew! Suffice it to say I was worn out yesterday. No matter how hot and green it still is up there, being in the mountains gets me so excited for Fall. I’m already making plans, unbeknownst to Jeremy, to return when he has some off time. And it got me looking forward to a fun blogger trip next month – stay tuned for that!

But in the spirit of Autumn, I am excited to share a few pieces that you’ll be able to wear and re-wear all season long starting with this gorgeous cardigan that is guaranteed to sell out. It’s under $50 and I sized up to a medium for a more oversized fit. This $25 skirt has also been a fun addition to my wardrobe. It comes in quite a few different color options, but the cognac was the perfect shade to match my tan accessories. I always size up one size in H&M bottoms and am wearing a size US8 in this.

But the real MVP is this cream sweater tank. If you scroll through my Instagram feed, you’ll see that I have styled it in a TON of ways! It is seriously so versatile and hands-down my favorite transitional piece. I am wearing a size small in it for size reference.
