Mornin’ y’all. With the swift change in temps I jumped at the opportunity to break out a few transitional fall pieces – including but not limited to this pleated skirt. If you don’t have one already, I highly recommend getting a leather (or faux depending on ethics and budget) skirt. It is a warmer style and looks great with OTK boots, flats, sneaks, loafers or heels.
happy Monday friends! Since I’m totally dreading the start of the work week (the first day is always the hardest), I thought I would make it super girly and a little fancy with this office approved look! I told you guys last week I’m totally color crushing on blush, but it totally applies to pink as a whole. Truth be told, the whole color fam is really having a moment for me this season and it’s pretty fun. I used to be a little nervous about piling on the pink hues but am totally embracing it this season / year. I mean half the fun in being a girl is being super girly! Based on all the great shots I have been stalking from fashion week, it’s going to have some real staying power through spring. This Who What Wear top from Target has been a constant for me lately. I just love how simply chic it is and it goes with everything: shorts, pants, dressy, casual- you name it, it has worked. I really love how the softness balances the boldness of these hot pink pants. They fit like a glove and are so comfy and perfect for the office. I opted for the silver sandals this time vs my go-to nude heels to break up the look with a little shine.
hope you guys have a great Monday full of caffeine and productivity !

Happy Thursday everyone! We are so close to a long weekend I can taste it! I’m so excited about some down time to relax in the sun and get some DIY projects done and to finish a few other books on my reading list. We have been so busy traveling lately I feel like I need a vacation from my vacations. I did manage to find a few minutes to download a few pictures from my England trip! It’s the first time I have seen them since I snapped them and I’m so excited to share them!! We saw so many beautiful things while we were there and it is pretty exciting to relive it all. Today’s post is from two areas we visited. Leamington Spa and the Cotswolds. Both areas are so gorgeous and overflowing with charm and historical buildings. Several of the buildings in the Cotswolds had thatched roofs. It was really refreshing to see a different way of life. Both towns are nestled in the picturesque countryside and maintain a slower pace. All the shops (except for the pubs and restaurants) close no later than 6 and there are no “one stop shops”, at least not in the smaller towns. If you need groceries for dinner you go see your fish man, mean man, cheese man and wine man. Shop small took on a whole new meaning and I have to say I really liked it.
I’ll warn you in advance about the outfit posts: I packed for cooler rainy weather since every forecast and everyone in England said it would be cool and rainy every day. Lucky for us, we experienced unseasonably warm and sunny conditions which made our days that much better, but outfits sparse. You all know how much I love these cut off shorts and how white and denim is my go-to. Well, on this trip these shorts and white tops were my saving grace! They kept me cool and kept me from wearing gym clothes the whole week. I swapped out some of the accessories but managed to live in some type of espadrille and either my Longchamp bag or this awesome cross-body the entire time we were on the go.

AH!! It is almost Friday y’all can you taste it?! I hope you all have been having a good week. It has been so hard for me to get back in the groove. Mentally, I’m just checked out and it seems like the work days last forever! Thankfully, the weekend is just right around the corner and I can finally get caught up on some much needed Zzzz’s and enjoy this amazing summer weather I came home to. This hot, sunny and recently humid weather has made these cut off shorts a go-to. You’ll have to forgive me for wearing them every chance I get. They go with everything and they are super duper comfy. They have a relaxed, loose fit and the rips and snags in the fabric give them a chill summer edge. They are also on sale right now so hop to it and click the link below to get yourself a pair, you won’t be sorry! While I’m definitely wearing these shorts right now, I’ve laid this stellar jacket to the side until temps drop back down to more jacket friendly weather or I venture back out West. This is another jacket I took with me to Cali and this outfit was one of my favorites. You know how much I love embroidery and so I couldn’t resist this purchase. It layers well with everything I have tried so far and the colors are so rich. The billowy sleeves are everything! They make just the right statement without being in the way or super crazy. It also comes in a fierce sunflower yellow color that is also amazing. I’ve linked it for you below in case pink just isn’t your color.
Free People Embroidered Jacket also available in sunflower combo , Denim & Supply Cut Off Shorts, Sam Edelman Lace Up Sandals, Blush Bag (other colors here), Navy Tank, Sunglasses, Earrings, Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Hot Berry
