Today is Labor Day which unofficially signals an end to the summer. It was easily 90 degrees when we took these photos, so even though it may not exactly feel like Fall, it's still time to discuss Fall-friendly wear.

Two words. Frame Denim. I read about these jeans and finally tried on a pair at Poole Shop. They have the perfect amount of stretch and distressed appearance. I also love that they are not a skinny jean, but a classic straight-leg. If you're local, head to Capitol and skip right upstairs to the second floor and try these on for yourself. You will not be disappointed. You can also find Frame Denim on Shopbop and find my exact pair on Intermix. They are an investment, but worth every penny.

The only thing I love more than a classic boy shirt is layering it. I threw my favorite white vest over it for this easy Fall-friendly look. You can pair a vest with almost everything in your closet, so if you don't have one, I suggest putting it on your Fall to-do-list. 

...And just in case you weren't sure that it's perfectly fine to wear white after Labor Day, Tim Gunn gives you his approval

Heading West

Monday, August 25, 2014


Palm tree
We are off to Monterey and San Francisco for a few days to unwind, explore, and drink wine. I'll be taking the remainder of the week off from the blog to unplug and recharge. In the meantime, you can follow along on Instagram to see photos of the trip including the California Coast, wineries, and other shenanigans.
See you next week,

Fall Finds Under $100

Fall Finds Under $100

This week has been pretty intense, which you may have gathered by my absence the past few days. I intend to make it up by featuring not just one, but seven of my favorite Fall finds.

Need Supply Co. is one of my favorite online shopping spots and their new arrivals do not disappoint. All seven of my favorites are under one hundred bucks and perfect for Fall.

Can we talk about the Saunders Ankle Boot for a quick sec? The perfect Fall outfit = A pair of your favorite jeans (or these) + a white button down + these boots. That's as aggressive as I'll ever get with math on the blog. Promise. Another favorite of mine is the Filipa Hat. A wide-brim hat is definitely a key player to have in your closet and this one is especially perfect for just $42.

Fall is right around the corner ladies, so start stocking up now.

J.Crew Crepe Maxi Dress / Dolce Vita Archer Sandals / Gorjana Necklace c/o / RocksBox ring c/o / Loren Hope Bracelet c/o / J.Crew bangles 

I've said it before and I'll say it again, you will never have to twist my arm to dig through a good sale rack. That's exactly where I found this J.Crew Crepe Maxi Dress (on sale for $79). This dress definitely requires a try-on because the hanger does not do it justice. The material is gorgeous and the dress hangs on the body just right. It runs a bit large, so consider sizing down. This dress is ideal for a laid back beach wedding, especially if you don't want to spend more than $100 on a dress.

All you need are a few great accessories. My ring is from RocksBox which is like having a personal jewelry shopper. Simply create a style profile and pay $19/month and you get hand picked jewelry at your door. So easy.

If you have weddings on your Fall calendar, be sure to scope out all the Bloggers Who Budget for Wedding Guest looks for a lot less.

Pick of the Week: Old Navy Canvas Vest

Friday, August 15, 2014


Old Navy Canvas Vest
 Hello, Friday. Before you skip out of work early or head to happy hour, you must peep this Old Navy Canvas Vest.

There's nothing better than finding a super affordable closet staple. This vest is exactly that. It's on sale for $25 and is the perfect layering piece for right now and especially into Fall. I bet you could throw it on over what you are wearing right now. It's selling out fast online, but I found one at my local Old Navy store. It runs a touch large, so think about sizing down if your size is sold out. Pop in Old Navy this weekend and then congratulate yourself for finding a killer piece that you will wear every season.

Bloggers Who Budget are back on Monday doing Wedding Guest looks for less than $100. Yep, under $100. Don't miss this one.
Did you catch me over on Honeebee Gifts this week?

Friends, meet my new weekend uniform. I typically go with a graphic tee for monotonous errands on the weekend, but since scoring this Madewell Latticework Shirt, I've upgraded a bit. It's a great shirt for looking more put together than you actually feel on a Sunday morning. Throw it on over these Rag & Bone Jeans with a pair of mules and it's a win-win situation for everyone. Guys, the Steven Mules are on super sale right now ($76) and I highly recommend. They are true to size and pretty much the easiest shoe to wear. A heel on Sunday morning? Who knew that was possible.
