Retro Fall Vibes

off the shoulder sweater (also comes in pink!) // similar flared jeans (mine are old)
pointy toe nude heels in "nude leather" // Chanel handbag, similar here

First off can I get a Hallelujah Amen for Friday? We made it to the weekend! Secondly, I am in l-o-v-e with the retro yet classic vibes from this outfit! My off the shoulder sweater is less than $50, so I had to order it in the gorgeous blush pink color that it comes in too (although I love this one and it looks very autumnal). I am already tired of skinny jeans and booties so I wanted to style this sweater a little differently... with flared jeans! The pair I'm wearing is a few years old but there are some really pretty styles available right now - I would check here! Also I really think that the tassel fringe earrings make the outfit, don't you? :)

As you're reading this, I'm probably on an airplane somewhere in the sky! I'm headed back to one of my favorite fall spots that I visited few years ago, except this time I'm even more excited because I'm meeting up with one of my favorite bloggers (y'all are going to love her!). Stay tuuuuuuuned!

Fall Decorating Ideas (+ House Updates!)

Good morning, everyone! I thought it would be fun to do a different type of blog post today and share how I've decorated for fall around the house. Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons... I love the crisp air, the crunch of leaves under your feet and everything that comes along with it - so I'm so excited to be able to decorate this year! Let's start with the front porch...

doormat: Frontgate, similar HERE // similar hanging light fixture

I started by going to Lowe's and picking up some mums in color-coordinating colors (I love the purple/magenta and white color combo!). Every year growing up my mom would get mums for our front porch during the fall time, so she helped me pick them out! (She has a green thumb and I do not, but I'm learning.) I also bought two white crates from Michael's to put a few of the flowers on to create some dimension on the porch. Next I added these black malta lanterns in a few different sizes and filled them with these flameless candles - you can set them on a timer so that they turn on at the same time every night. I have mine set to turn on around 7 p.m! And finally, there's the cutest little pumpkin patch near my house so I stopped to get some pumpkins - I'm pretty sure these are called "cinderella" pumpkins - they aren't your typical field pumpkins and they come in pretty colors like white, light green and light orange. Every time I pull in the driveway and get a glimpse of the front porch, it makes me so happy!

Now that I finally have a kitchen table (my apartment was too small for one!), I wanted to set a fall themed table. I picked up most everything from Pottery Barn while I was at the mall one day last week, including these pumpkin melamine plates and plaid table runner. I love mixing patterns so I think the buffalo check and pumpkin combination is really cute together.

And finally, here are some shots of the Keeping Room (the room beside the kitchen) - I wanted to share with you how it's coming along! It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it's super cozy - I love waking up, making a latte and then coming in this room to watch the morning news shows! One thing we are going to change about the room is the wall color - it's a little bit too green for our liking, haha. We are thinking either a soft blue or soft grey. And we did order another chair that will go to the left of the sectional - I can't wait for it to come in but it doesn't even ship until December (grr)!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Olive Green Ripped Jeans

Happy Tuesday, friends! This outfit is probably one of my very favorites that I've worn in the past couple of months - I'm 100% certain that I'll be living in these olive green ripped jeans for the entire fall season! I love the color and the price point, however I did size up one size for the perfect fit. These jeans would also look cute with heels, closed-toe booties, printed blouses, a white sweater, etc. They're very versatile!

I have a fun post planned for tomorrow so stay tuned :)

Top 10 Most Pinned Fall Outfits

Since Friday was the first official day of fall, I thought it would be fun to round up my top 10 fall outfits on Pinterest from over the years. It's hard for me to believe that some of these have hundreds of thousands of re-pins! I've linked to similar items since these outfits are all more than a year old... I would love to know your favorite (let me know in the comments!) :)

Pinterest Pin #10 - I wore this outfit on a trip to Vermont last year! I'm excited that off-the-shoulder sweaters are still "in" for this year. Also, I keep my white jeans in rotation all year long so you'll find me wearing them during the fall and winter.

Pinterest Pin #9 - This one was also taken in Burlington, Vermont (one of my favorite little New England towns!). This outfit is easy to recreate with a cute poncho, white tee and jeans.

Pinterest Pin #8 - I wore this outfit on a family trip to Connecticut a few years ago... ripped skinny jeans and a cute scarf make an easy and foolproof outfit combo for the fall.

Pinterest Pin #7 - I still love this outfit so so much! And an identical plaid scarf is being sold this year- snag it while you can!

Pinterest Pin #6 - Winnie totally steals the show in this picture (one of my favorites) - look at her little tiny body and white paws! This was taken only a few weeks after I'd gotten her.

Pinterest Pin #5 - This completely grey and white outfit is super easy to re-create, and can be worn well into the winter.

Pinterest Pin #4 - Another one of my favorites (fingers crossed they bring back the scarf this year). My mom and I road-tripped all the way to Manchester, Vermont last year and this was a cozy and comfortable outfit for the car ride!

Pinterest Pin #3 - Taken right outside of my apartment in Winston, I wore this outfit on a fall day last year. Every woman needs a camel cardigan in her wardrobe, and leopard heels are the perfect way to add some interest and a subtle pop of pattern.

Pinterest Pin #2 - One of my oldest fall outfits, but one of my most pinned of all time! I absolutely love the striped turtleneck paired underneath the chunky knit poncho - can there even be a better combination for fall?

Pinterest Pin #1 - With almost 300,000 pins, this is (surprisingly) my most pinned picture on Pinterest! And my exact green tunic is still available online (and on sale!).

Happy Fall, y'all!!!!
