SIMPLY STYLISH


I love looks that aren't trying too hard.  An outfit that isn't full of so many prints and patterns.  Ones that are simple, but yet so chic.  Styles that look effortless, those are some of the best looks, in my opinion.  I love the cropped skinny jeans she's wearing above paired with those beautiful nude flats and simple white on top.  She looks gorgeous even without the outfit being super fancy.

I think black and white pieces are the easiest ways to pull this off.



Little to no accessories, 
help with getting this look just right.  
You don't need a lot of extra things
 to distract from a great look.

                   


Is this a type of style you try to achieve?  
Do you have a go to outfit
 for when you want to look effortlessly stylish?

FALL FAVORITES: FOOD OR FASHION


Fall weather is just around the corner and you know what that means.... Time to bring out those blazers, your favorite chunky knit sweater, and a scarf or two.  It's about time to bring on the stylish, yet cozy layers.


It seems most people enjoy fall.  Not too hot, not too cold, just right.  Plus you get to indulge in everything pumpkin.  Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin bread..... Pumpkin everything. 



  Even those that say they can't stand when pumpkin flavor hits the stores, are secretly eating pumpkin brownies late at night.

Yeah, I'm looking at you!

Although, I must confess, my all time favorite fall drink isn't actually pumpkin flavored!  It's always been hot caramel apple cider!  GASP! I know right?!  Oh, but it's so delicious!  But a tall cup of hot caramel apple cider and a comfy look like above, or a more sophisticated look like below and I'm good to go. 


What's your favorite thing about fall?  The food or the fashion?
  Or are you like me, and love both?
 Love the layered look below with the collar!


Lastly, I adore the cream shades below!!


What are some of your favorites?

OVER OVERALLS?

I haven't liked overalls since I was a young girl.  Although, I've seen them 
 make a little comeback from time to time throughout the years, I myself haven't had any interest in putting a pair back on.  Until now that is.  I came across this:


I love this look!  I never thought I'd say that about an outfit involving overalls!  I think it's the fit of them that really caught my attention.   They aren't baggy or unflattering.   They have a nice skinny fit throughout the legs.  She paired them with feminine strappy heel and a solid black tee.  She didn't over do it. A cute messy bun and super chic sunglasses with a fabulous little purse and she's all set!  I really do love this look!  Would I actually go out and buy a pair of overalls?  To be honest, I'm not sure if I would.  Only, because I don't think I could pull this look off!  

What about you?  Would you wear overalls?  Or are there any certain fashion trends that you love, but don't actually indulge in, because you don't think you could make it work for you?

PLEAT IT


Pleated skirts!  

I absolutely love this look above!  Doesn't it seem like a perfect summer outfit?  She's dressed this super chic black pleated skirt more casual with a basic white tank and sneakers.  Comfortable and cute.  Perfect summer combo.  Normally I don't think wearing skirts while riding bikes is the best idea, but I could totally see this working out.  And don't you just love bikes with cute little baskets?  Why have I not upgraded my bike?!

More pleated skirts for your pleasure!


Looks business chic above. 

A fun pop of color below!


It's a shame to realize I actually don't own a pleated skirt!  How can this be true?!  I know what I'm adding to my next shopping spree!

What about you?  Pleated skirts, yay or nay?
How do you or would you style it?

LAIDBACK & CHIC


I wish I could look this effortless and cool.
Laidback and chic.
Comfortable yet super stylish.

All hard things to pull off, yet she does it so well!

PINK HUES

I have always wanted to dye my hair a soft pastel pink or get pink highlights.  Although I have had my hair dyed here and there through the years, I have never been brave enough to actually take the plunge.



When I was working, it wouldn't have been professional.  I've also had a fear of it looking ridiculous or now that I'm a stay at home mom and don't have to worry as much about professionalism with my five and one year old, I have to worry if it might be strange showing up at school things with pink hair. Oh, what's a girl to do?

Maybe one day I'll just go for it, but for now I'll just admire it from afar!

Would you ever dye your hair a more unnatural color?  Do you like pastel shades or neons? I also think a soft lilac is so pretty!

OUT OF CONTROL

Hello there lovelies!  I hope you are all well!  I know my last post was titled moody blues because I had been having an off day that day.  Unfortunately it hasn't quite improved.  Do any of you struggle with feeling a sense of helplessness when you can't "control" things?  This may be a heavy topic for a blog,  but in all honesty I'm someone who loves having things set up, planned, organized.



 I'm not one that does well with not knowing what's going to happen or when things are out of my control.  I worry and worry some more.  Do any of you suffer from that as well?  I know I need to "let go" sometimes and be a bit more easy going though when things don't go according to my plan ( besides I need to remember, my plan isn't always the best plan).  It's a working progress, that's for sure, but at least I'm trying.

My goal this week, relax, let go

Doesn't that look peaceful?  Do you have ways of letting go and worrying less?
