Croppin’ Knit

cropknit_1

I was initially a bit skeptical of cropped sweaters and sweatshirts.  When the temperatures start dropping I want to be as covered up as possible after all.  But then I “invested” in this one (I found it tucked in the sale rack) and I totally get the appeal.  This might be my new favorite outfit.  A swingy maxi dress just feels so effortless paired with a cropped knit that I kind of want to make this my uniform for the rest of the season.

The Total Tee

totaltee_1

Perfectly broken-in tees are always a fashion item I get really excited to find.  It’s hard to find a tee with just the right amount of slouchiness and that feels so soft and worn in you’re not sure if you’ll ever want to take it off, but when you do, you have to snatch up at least one.  I loved that this one came in the softest shade of periwinkle blue and is just the thing to take me from running around town to kicking my feet up on the couch.

Color Chaos

There are days it feels like there’s barely time to take a breath, but when things start feeling overwhelming you have to just take it one step at a time, lace up some sneakers, and throw on a fun outfit.  Sometimes a little bold pattern play is all you need to get that boost of confidence to feel like you can tackle anything.

Won’t Let Go

wontletgo_1

I know, I know, fall is coming (well, it’s basically already here) and I need to stop reaching for my sundresses and start reaching for my sweaters, but, I don’t wanna — said in my brattiest little kid voice, of course.  I love warm weather, I love the bright colors and patterns of summer, and I’m just not ready to put them away so expect to see me mixing them into my autumn wardrobe.  Sure, I’ll start adding more layers, and even a few knits, but don’t ask me to retire my flowy dresses just yet, okay?  Then again, if someone wants to finance me to go on a little shopping spree I’d probably be a lot more inclined to jump on the pumpkin spice latte bandwagon and pull on some boots.

Gameday Gear

Football season is back in full swing, and my game day wardrobe has gotten a serious style update.  I’m loving the new NFL apparel that fits right in with my closet and looks cute while I cheer on my home team.  Now I’m ready for some Monday night football!
