Game Day Outfit: L.Mae Boutique Dress

A shift dress. A belt. A pair of booties. All the makings of a perfect fall outfit. The only thing that can make even more fantastic, is when it's in your favorite teams colors! The silhouette and the colors also make it a fab year round option. Tights and a sweater in the winter. Flats and a denim jacket in the spring.

October has been so amazing! There's a reason this is my favorite time of the year. The crisp air. The temperature cool down. Football. The fair. Halloween! Eeeeek! But that also means it's been a crazy packed month. I decided to do a little round up of a few outfits that don't always get to make it on the blog... Here's a peek into my instagram diary for April. 

polka dot sweater and shorts for a warm fall breakfast

Nothing better than a good ol' plaid blanket scarf, right?

Don't save those sequin pieces just for fancy occasions! I wore mine to church with a chunky sweater and ankle booties

How cute is this Adam Levine Collection dress? It's on sale and oh-so-cute! 

I'm all about suede and corduroy this fall season. LOVE it!

Outfit Post: Sleeveless White Vest

Ever since I received this white sleeveless long blazer, I've been racking my brain on how I can wear it throughout the seasons. I thought why not share about how I'd wear it now, and then still be able to wear it later, as the temperatures really drop.

Target tank top and jogger pants (old - love this pair)
Shoemint mules
Half United necklace c/o Jewelers Wife
Sole Society sunglasses c/o (sold out)
Caravelle watch (gifted)
Maybelline lipstick

We're still going to be in the upper 70's later this week and this is a perfect counterpart to that awkward weather limbo season. It's the perfect look for the office that's still put together but fashion forward enough for me. Plus when I'm walking to get my lunch, I won't be sweating in fall sun. I LOVE the length of this blazer - it's super flattering on. I'm thinking I'll wear it next with some skinny jeans and a blouse once the thermometer starts to drop. How would you wear it? Any outfit ideas? I'm open!

Hope you guys have a fantastic start to your week! xo

Game Day Outfit: Garnet Suede Shift Dress

I love this time in the season when Danielle from Lou What Wear and I do our football "Game Day Showdown" collaboration! Normally we do a FSU vs Miami showdown, but we switched it up a bit this time. Since Louisville is now in the ACC conference and being that she lives there, she often attends the Cards games (Apparently, they have beer which would make me a Cards fan too. I hope my Kentucky Wildcat husband never reads that sentance.)

I love the brands we get to work with during this collab and this year we teamed up with The Mint Julep Boutique! They're got a ton of cute game day options, and even more just cute clothes! And even though we're going to be rivals this weekend, her outfit is SO cute. Make sure you hop on over there and take a peek!

Shoemint "Miller" mules (on sale!)
Sole Society necklace (from last year - try this one)
Moon and Lola "Eden" charm bracelets
Nuskin lipstick in "Cha Cha Red" (gifted)

Sometimes, I get to be comfy casual when watching the Florida State games. And other times, it's Saturday! Which means we have an event or a party to go to after the 4th quarter (or sometimes during the game. Eeeek!) So this was one of those "glam game day" outfits where I got to wear it for the game, but guess what? It doubles as just a regular outfit too! After all, aren't those versatile outfits the best anyways?

I'm REALLY into the suede look right now. It's so lush. This shift dress is so incredibly comfortable. I love the details on it like the suede-like material, laser cut out hem, and pockets! Plus, the fact that it's garnet/burgundy/oxblood/wine/whatever you want to call this color, it's probably going to get lots of use as we head into the Holiday season. Can't believe it's almost that time of year already!  

Don't forget to check out Danielle's Louisville Cardinals game day outfit (gimme that vest and those booties!) She's the best! Happy TGIF you guys!

Oh and Go Noles!

Come Shop With Me: The Impeccable Pig Fall Event

You guys... I'm SO excited for my event happening Thursday at The Impeccable Pig's Cameron Village location. I stopped in there last night (where I picked up this little ensemble!) and there are so many amazing fall pieces! I hope you'll be joining us from 5-7 pm where you'll be able to get 20% full priced items!

Chinese Laundry "Riding Hood" boot (sold out - try these!)
J.Crew Factory chain link bracelet c/o Carolina Premium Outlets
Rayban "Chris Velvet" sunglasses in violet mirror c/o Carolina Premium Outlets

How fantastic are these two pieces? Literally the second the manager Allison showed them to me, I was like "I have to HAVE these!" Together, they're absolutely perfect for this transitional time. You know the awkward it's still cool in the mornings, but warm in afternoon days. I love how edgy they look when paired with the moto buckle boots.

But I'll still be able to wear them well into the fall/winter months. That skirt will look great with a pair of tights and brown riding boots. And the tank I can rock with jeans, a blazer and booties. Plus, they can both still carry me through the spring months too. Got to love versatile pieces!

I really hope you'll be able to make it out on Thursday. I'd love to see you there! It's going to be so much fun. Let's go shopping!!

Outfit Post: Neon Green Skater Dress

What's a girl to do when that dress she orders arrives and it's, well, waaaaay too short to be an actual dress, but she still loves it oh-so-much? Well you take those lemons and you make a top out of it!

Maybelline Vivids lipstick in "Fuchsia Flash"

I've been searching forever for a neon green skater dress ever since I missed out on scoring the one during H&M's 2009 Conscious Collection release. So when this one arrived, and I knew it was going to be way too short to wear without something on the bottom, I thought why not make it a top? Add on some distressed skinnies and boom, instant brunch outfit.

If you're in the Raleigh area, come shopping with me! This Thursday from 5-7. I'll be at The Impeccable Pig and you'll get 20% off full priced items! Including their newest fall arrivals (yay!) Hope to see you there!
