Fall Colors

I absolutely love fall fashion!  I love the layering, scarves, and boots.  Most of all though, I LOVE the rich fall colors.  They are so vibrant, and you can mix and match pretty much all of them.  The colors in this look are no exception.  If I would have to choose a favorite fall color it would be hard to come up with one, but I would have to say mustard yellow and burgundy are by far my top two.  I have so many variations of these two colors.

 

 

I was drawn to this cardigan from Shein for multiple reasons.  The first is of course the color!  Secondly, I am a sucker for anything this season that is chunky knits.  This cardigan from Shein lists its sizing is one size fit all.  As much as I loved this sweater though, it is not a one size.  If I was putting a size to this it would be a small or medium.

What is your favorite part about fall fashion?

Current Happenings

Life this fall has been crazier than ever!  As you know, we just returned from a family vacation to Disney.  It was nice getting away.  Life though like I said has been crazy!  Things at work have been extremely busy.  We have a handful of new teachers that are keeping me busy.  I love the fact that I am able to help so many people in my position.  The boys have been playing soccer and the season is coming to a close.  Next weekend is tournament which is always a fun day.  I am hoping for good weather.  This week we are overlapping soccer and basketball which should be interesting!  We have also been car shopping in between all of the craziness.  I am looking forward to ending that process soon!

Our weather in Indiana has taken a drastic turn.  Our warmer days have turned extremely cool and rainy.  I love the cooler temps, but I could do without the rain.  I love the fact that I am able to pull out my fall clothes though.  I think this is my favorite season when it comes to clothes!  There is nothing better than layers in my opinion.

The Outfit 

This look brings in so many of my favorite styles that it makes me happy!  Is there anything better than plaid, florals, and ruffled sleeves?  This top from Shein had so many of my favorite styles that I couldn’t wait to give it a try.  When wearing a boxier top I like to pair it with a slimmer silhouette on the bottom.  These jeans from Loft are some of the best!  If you are a curvier gal like myself you need to try these!  They are absolutely the best fit, and I love how they hit right at the end of my leg.

 

When I received this top I was really excited about the quality.  I ordered a size large, but I could have gone with my normal size medium.  The material is a little heavier which is perfect for perfect fall days.  The embroidery is really well done too!  As for wrinkles, it was super easy to remove.  The best part was that new ones were not added throughout the day.  These pictures were taken after a day of working!  This top also comes in a basic white and blue stripes if plaid isn’t for you!

 

Since there was so much going on with this top I decided to keep my accessories simple.  This pendent necklace from Shop Sarahndipity is simple enough that it helped enhance this top verses making the look to busy.  When looking for accessories for patterned tops simpler is always better.

To keep with the easy and simple look I added my favorite bracelet stack from Centered Jewelry. This is a local company that designs the best bracelets.  There are so many gorgeous stacks that you can create by just a few pieces.  If you are local and looking to see pieces in person head to Outer Grace Boutique or Lane 201!  If you aren’t local you can also find her on Etsy.  I wear these bracelets at least once a week, because I love them so much.

 

Polka Dots and Crop Tops

One of my favorite patterns is polka dots and I cannot seem to get enough of them!  When I saw this adorable crop top from Shein I knew it was perfect for summer and to transition into fall.  It was also the perfect top to attempt to make crop tops appropriate for a 36-year-old mother! I decided to pair it with a high-waisted maxi skirt.  I have found when wearing this top that high-waisted items make it more comfortable for me to wear.  Do you wear crop tops?  If so how do you wear them?  I would love some more ideas on how to style this adorable top!

In the summer, we spend a ton of our spare time at the pool.  We are very lucky that my parents have one and only live two houses away.  Every now and again we take a trip to our local pool so the kids can play on the slides and diving boards.  It never fails they are always quite a few friends there also!

 

I have a few pool day essentials that are a must!  One being a cover up.  I tend to buy dresses and use them for dual purposes.  This dress from Shein also acts as an adorable cover up!  I love the tie in the back along with the embroidery details on the front and hem.  I like for my cover ups to be able to be worn in public while running errands, not just at the pool! This one covers my swimsuit perfectly, and is long enough to cover all the important parts.

 

 

I also love wearing hats at the pool.  As I have gotten older, I have become more concerned with sun damage.  I like to wear a hat to help shade my face from the sun.  I also use an SPF 50 sunscreen.  Another essential for me as many of you know is sunglasses!  I have to make sure I am wearing some anytime I leave the house.  Any kind of bright sunlight hurts my eyes.  To help keep them protected these adorable Vera Bradley glasses are the perfect pair!

 

 

My last pool accessory is a cute swim bag.  This straw tote from Vera Bradley is the best!  The print is adorable, and the size is perfect.  It holds towels, sunscreen, and of course snacks perfectly.  It isn’t a pool day without these essentials.  What are your poolside essentials?
