Happy fall, ya'll! I am sure that phrase was written in some shape or form on every blog/social media channel yesterday. I know I was guilty and here I am today, saying it again.
I felt obligated to dress the part for the seasonal change. It was actually ironic that when we woke up yesterday morning a chill was in the air and a crispness lingered throughout the day. I am not saying it was cold, but enough of a cool down that made me want to skip. It was as though the universe knew that it needed to take the temps down a notch because after all, it WAS the first day of fall.
I have been waiting to wear this Zara blanket scarf for over a week, but because it's not even close to being cold here, there is no way I can wrap it around my neck. I can however drape it around my shoulders, add a belt and get my blanket scarf fulfillment without dying of a heat stroke or getting the side-eye from passersby. I might have clapped a couple times when I found out that Zara brought back a few new plaid color options from their ever-so-famous ones from last year. Unfortunately, the one I am wearing today is sold out online, but I think they plan on restocking soon. So make sure you leave them your email if you want to be notified once they are back. You can also call your local store.
Caramela Tunic Blouse via Fab'rik (option here and here) // Zara Scarf (sold out: option here and here) // Spanx Denim c/o Fab'rik (I am wearing the Indigo Blue Denim Leggings in a medium and LOVE them!!) // Go Jane Boots (option here and here) // Gigi New York Clutch c/o // Wrenn Jewelry Rings c/o // Forever 21 Sunglasses
I did find several great options for you to browse. I recommend grabbing one for the cooler days of fall and upcoming winter season. I purchased my first oversized scarf last year and wore it all the time. You can check out a few ways that I styled it here and here.
In other blog news I have a few randoms for you.
1. I just finished Big Little Lies. If you haven't read it, download or head straight to the bookstore and grab a copy. I was so sad when it was over. It's one of the best I have read in a long time. Next on my list, another book from Liane Moriarty called The Husband's Secret.
2. I am getting my hair done next week. I want to do something new, but nothing too drastic. I found a few ombre colors on Pinterest that I fell in love with, but is ombre a thing of the past? Or maybe the new word is "bronde". At least that is what Google is telling me.
3. Candy corn M&Ms, pumpkin everything, darker lip colors, acorn stains on my drive away, a football obsessed husband, Halloween costume brainstorming, dinner from the Crock-Pot, hot apple cider and shorter days...I can finally talk about it all without feeling silly because the sun has officially set on Summer. Until next year...tear.
