Fall Days Full of Play and Ann Taylor


I love this time of year and we also love having fun! Today I am mixing in some fun with the challenge I took on of 31 days of Fall Fashion to help inspire others. You are either looking to shop your current closet and come up with ideas or your looking for the great sales that are out there now and hopefully these post help.

We had fun after church since the weather was perfect.

 
Have fun everyday!

 
 
Serious...................

I had the opportunity to wear my new scarf and its a must have that you can find at Target. From what I hear it is sold out online but I would keep stopping by your local Target and keep an eye out.
 
 
I usually always wear a stud earing and a statement necklace but today I went with a statement earing. I picked these up from Baublebar.

 
Jeans- Ann Taylor
Shirt- Gap
Vest- Old Navy
Shoes- Ann Taylor
Scarf- Target
Watch- Michael Kors
Bracelets- Ann Taylor




 
I love the look of just wearing the vest both zipped and unzipped.


 
These shoes are great. I picked them up at Ann Taylor and was able to get an additional 60% off. I believe they were $80.00 and I purchased them for $30.00 with my coupons I was able to put on top of the 60% off.

 
Wonderful weekend because I cleaned my porch and had a great cup of coffee on Sunday morning before leaving for church.

 
Fall is in the air!

 
Saturday I wore my recent purchase from Ann Taylor. They have the best pants for work along with several new cardigans.


 
I love the look of navy and red during the fall. Adds a great splash of color. Hope you are having an awesome start to your Fall!

Pottery Barn Leya Travel bag and Makeup Train


We really enjoy traveling from long trips to weekend trips. I love having the perfect weekend bag or having that extra carry on and this is one is perfect. Take a look at the Leya Makeup Train Case and Leya Tote I picked up from Pottery Barn.

 
 
We recently took a weekend trip to Atlanta to go shopping and enjoy dinner at several of their restaurants. These two bags were perfect. The makeup train held everything I needed from daily makeup up to overnight lotions. The link is here
 
 
 
The quality is awesome and I know these are pieces that will last. It really is an investment when you add pieces like this to your travel collection. When I saw this in their catalogue the print had me!
 
 
The next piece I want to add that goes with the collection is the Flax Stripe Ultimate Cosmetic bag. I think its the perfect item to complete the set.


 

 
Love this new set and I am sure you would also! Happy travels!

31 Days of Fall Fashion- Scarf and Cardigans


I am continuing to take part in the 31 Days for Fall Fashion. I love looking in my closet and getting inspired to put something new together. Since I am a mom of a certain age, business professional, wife, and enjoy life I want to dress in an age appropriate way.



I have had fun with new purchases but also shopping my closet and putting new outfits together. That's the goal here, be inspired and find new items in your closet!

Monday I went with one of my new favorite fun outfits.

 
Shirt is from the Ann Taylor Factor  Outlet
Shoes- Tory Burch Black Flats
Scarf- Amazon
Both Necklaces- Ann Taylor
Watch- Michael Kors
 

 
I love the longer necklace with the tortoise stone and the rhinestone circle holding the chain.

 
Absolutely one of my new favorite outfits!
 
Tuesday I was very excited to pull out a cardigan because the weather was much cooler. I recently purchased this at the Ann Taylor Factory Outlet. I also purchased the navy pants and the blue oxford shirt.
 
 
I love taking a long sleeve shirt and folding the cuffs back up over the sweater.

 
I paired todays outfit with my Tan Tory Burch Wedges.
 


This is the same necklace combo as yesterday and I wanted to show how a piece like this can go with so many different outfits.

 
Have an awesome week!

Fall Leather Trim Outfit of the Day


I love the leather trim that's on shirts, skirts, and pants for the fall season. This outfit is baby steps towards that style that anyone could wear. I absolutely love it.



 
I paired mine with my Tory Burch black flats because I knew we would be doing a lot of walking.


The leather on this top is so subtle, that its just there.  But up close, it gives the outfit an added zing that a solid-colored shirt wouldn't. Another baby step is to keep your outfit to a single bold piece, in this case I chose the pants with the leather strip down the side.

 
 
You can see the leather that runs along the top of the shirt. Its not to harsh and still very lady like.

 
The perfect way to keep it soft is to layer your jewelry. I also picked up both of these pieces from Ann Taylor.
 
 

 
Isn't my son becoming quite the photographer?! After four years of outfit posts, he is finally getting in to it! Granted I still only get about 3 minutes and 12 shots...but I'll take it! What is your comfort zone when it comes to the leather style? I encourage you to take some baby steps in a bolder direction...you'd be surprised at all the new outfit options that your closet holds!
 
A very easy way to change up your outfit is to pair it with boots. Also pull your hair back if possible and you have a completely different look.

 
I love the leather quilted stripe down the side.  I was very excited to find these at Target for $19.99 because everyone else had them for 59.00 and up. They are so comfy!
 

We had a packed day on Saturday and we went for a great dinner at the Casino in Mississippi. We leave in the best city because we easily go in any direction and having something wonderful to do.

 
I love this fall picture of the two of us. The pumpkins are just so festive.

 
Whenever we visit here we always take a picture in front of the flower arrangement at this spot. Its our special tradition. We usually only make it over here once a year so its fun to follow the pictures.
 
 
One of the best things about the Casino is they have the $10 Store. I picked up this really cute hat to take on our upcoming cruises. We have one coming up in the next few months where we will be making a stop in the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.
 
Then next year my hope is to plan something to Europe. This would be the cutest hat to take on that cruise.

 
By the way I also picked up the tan one which Trey is modeling for you!

 
All is back to normal! We just have so much fun.

 
The shopping was so much fun and here are a couple of special finds.
 

 
They have the best Christmas store that stays up all year round. Each year I add two nutcrackers to my collection which you will see when I put my Christmas post up. These two were so cute!

 
I love love love makeup travel bags and this one was so pretty. I love the stripe of green down the front with the gold accent.

 
This Santa was just stunning.

 
Hello Gorgeous is all I can say!
 
I hope you find a couple of leather accented pieces that you can add to your fall wardrobe.
