Hello Dolls,

I cannot believe its already fall! Where has the summer gone? I’m not a big fan of the fall because all I can think about is that winter is coming and winters in the mid-atlantic are brutal. The only bright side of fall is fashion week — and of course boots, jackets, scarves, comfy sweaters, cuddling by the fireplace and hot cocoa ;). So ladies, without further adieu, it’s time to put away all your sun dresses, bathing suits, and flip flops and get out your jeans, boots, and scarves! To kick-start the fall spirit, I am going to share my favorite denim looks because recently I am seeing denim everywhere!  This season, there really is something for everyone. My favorite look is the high wasted flair with a crop top or tucked in blouse. I recently tried on this fabulous pair of Blank NYC jeans at SouthMoonUnder that I think I am going to have to go back and get. They are currently 20% off so don’t miss out!

Thank you for reading!

Hello Dolls,

I started this post to share my Christmas eve outfit because I wore my favorite copped sweater. I then thought to myself, why don’t I dedicate this post to exactly that: my cropped sweater obsession? The cropped sweater is a must have for every wardrobe this season. You can style it with a high waisted skirt, high waisted pant, or over a loose blouse with leggings or a skirt. It’s a great piece to dress up or down and keep you cozy all winter long. I love bulky sweaters as well, but feel that the cropped sweater is more flattering and gives you a more polished look. Here are a few of my favorite cropped sweater looks followed by some sweater picks. The first looks is one that I wore on Christmas eve which I also wore at work. As you can see, you can wear it with boots or pumps. Yes ladies, occasionally I do wear outfits more than once, how un-fashionista of me, but if I love something, I definitely wear it again.

Thanks for reading!

IMG_0860.JPGHello Dolls,

I have been a little behind on my posts, but I have some amazing news. God has truly blessed our family with the most precious gift, and I am now a proud auntie to the most beautiful baby girl. Over the last few days I have been a little busy soaking in the excitement, and have been spending every minute of my time watching her first few days of life.

Last week, I spent an afternoon in Annapolis, MD with my husband. He and my father in law own one of the premier bakeries in the Washington DC area called Classic Bakery. We made the trip to deliver a wedding cake, so we figured we would take advantage of our time there to walk around and enjoy some delicious Maryland blue crab. We went to Phillips for dinner, and since this was kind of an impromptu trip, I stuck to some comfy fall basics.

Denim is so in this season! I was in love with this shirt when my sister gave it to me, and immediately I knew It was the perfect fall top for a casual day out. Paired with what I believe are the makers of the best leggings in the business, Lululemon. Originally they came out with their first variant and had issues with the transparency, but since they have reworked the material so they are now nice and thick which cover your under garment extremely well!

My Steve Madden boots that I’m wearing are one of my favorites. I actually bought them for a Halloween costume when I was Lara Croft, and never did I think that I was going to get this much wear out of them. I’m not big into flats, and actually didn’t own flats until I met my husband, but these boots are amazing and are my go to when I am feeling casual ;). Plus, boots are one of my favorite accessories for fall!

What is your favorite fall accessory?
