A Dark Floral

 dress (Nordstrom UNDER $50), jacket (BB Dakota 50% OFF), boots (Isola), clutch (Gigi New York), rings (Anna BeckBCBG), shades (Ray Ban)

Thought this look appropriate today as it seems a little witchy-ish to me, right?  The Florals and Slit in this Maxi add a nice dose of femininity to this look--and with the price tag, I simply couldn't resist snagging her.  I have to say one of my fave kicks this season are these Buckled Booties--they hit just perfectly on the leg and the buckled and suede detail make them simply spot on for the fall.  
Alright gang, getting the troops geared up for a day at the pumpkin patch.  Got a full agenda today indeed.  Cheers to a perfectly spooky Halloween, gang!  Make it a great one!

The Cozy Fall

 turtleneck (Loft ON SALE), denim (PAIGE see SIMILAR ON SALE), boots (Sperry), bag (Gigi New York), rings (Anna BeckBCBG), shades (Ray Ban)

Can we talk about how much I L O V E this look?  It ain't reinventing the wheel, but man is it cozy and comfy.  Two parts---the Turtleneck Sweaterwhich just so happens to be 50% off, and the Duck Boots, which I am wearing as I type, are the absolute PERFECT pieces for the fall--and winter as well.  Can't say enough about how easy breezy these pieces are and how I'll be heavily rotating them during the chillier months.  
Alright, kids, cheers to a fabulous weekend.  We've got the Breeder's Cup here in Lex, but my sis and I intend to chill with the little ladies and soak up some fun Halloween activities.  Enjoy, gang, make it a spooky one!

A Column Midi

dress (Asos ON SALE ONLY $60), heels (Isola ON SALE), clutch (Gigi New York), shades (Sole Society), rings (BCBGAnna Beck)

Switched it up a smidge, and opted to show the detail shot of this Asos Dress first, instead of my normal full length shots, because I simply love the length.  In addition to the midi, the unique pattern had me smitten right out of the gate---add the Price Tag, and we've got ourselves a fall winner.  I absolutely love when I go to compile a post and realize the bulk of the look is on S A L E!  Case in point, my Heels are marked down as well--my neutral color is sold out, but they're avail in Black which actually would look just as good with this frock.  
Alright gang, keeping her pretty short and sweet today---my sis and bro-in-law arrive this afternoon and my house is in S H A M B L E S---gotta hop to it and make it guest ready!  Y'all have a great start to your Thursday!

Tweed Loves Checks

jacket (Sail To Sable c/o), check top (Gap see OTHER COLORS), loafers (Vince Camuto ON SALE), bag (Gigi New York), denim (DL 1961 SEE SIMILAR), shades (Ray Ban), rings (Anna BeckBCBG)

With fall in full swing, there is no better time than the present to sport some TWEED.  This coat from Sail to Sable, what with its hot pink lining, is the perfect feminine-meets-fall coat!  If you remember this Tweedy Number, then not a shocker that I'm equally digging the Coat.   Be sure to check out all sorts of Sail to Sable Fall Goodness--lots of goodies indeed.  
Sale Alert--my Leopard Loafers are on solid sale currently---they pair just perfectly with GINGHAM don't ya think?  
And lastly.....Good news--for me anyhow--if you read yesterday's POST, then you know I've been in procrastination station mode.   Well, as I typed this bad boy yesterday---in my PJs, I confess, it was at the tail end of an eight hour sit-my-ass-in-front-of-the-computer-session and Get. Shit. Done.  And I did.  Laundry Pile is still flying high, but whatevs, one thing at a time, right?
Alright gang, cheers to yet another productive day---sister is on a roll!  Make it a great one!

Wish List

Been bookmarking a few goodies as of late and wanted to share what's on the Wish List and what's made its way to my front stoop.   These Checks, this Turtleneck, and this Flippy Skirt have all found their way into my closet and I simply L O V E them!  I've majorly got my radar on these Fringed Booties, this Flowy S A L E Cardigan, and this Collared Dress and thinking I'm definitely gonna bite the bullet on at least one of these bad boys.  Listed a few other's I'm eyeing below---some on pretty solid sale, too!  Alright gang---hope you're having a fab Tuesday---make it a great one!

The Fall Flavors

 scarf (Sole Society), sweater (Gap, see SIMILAR), denim (dl1961 love these DISTRESSED), chambray (see SIMILAR), booties (Joie), satchel (Clare V. c/o Omar + Elsie), rings (Anna BeckBCBG), shades (Ray Ban)

Chunky Knit, wear-with-anything Ankle Bootie, and the Infamous Blanket Scarf -- the perfect flavors for a Fall Look, don't you think?  I love this look because it's something we can all pull off and do so pretty easily.  I also love it for its classic vibe and of course, it's comfy, so I'm an instant fan.  
Completely off topic, but I'm hoping if I write it down it will motivate me to get my hind in gear--I'm feeling so dang disorganized these days.  I think it's because I've been traveling a bit, had company visiting, and just feel rut-ish....I'm hoping today is the day I tackle the laundry that is more or less reaching the ceiling, the suitcase I have yet to unpack from last week, the thank you notes that are beyond overdue,  and a list of emails too long to count---oh, and I've gotta shoot with KT at her New Studio--but hells, that ain't work---us gals always have quite the time.  
Ok, there it is--accountability...can't shy away from the To Do List now.  Damnit.
Y'all have a great Tuesday---make it a P R O D U C T I V E one!

Check This

dress (BCBGeneration  c/o MORTON JAMES), clutch (Gigi New York), heels (See by Chloe last seen HERE), shades (Gucci), rings (BCBGAnna Beck)

Sharing this BCBGeneration Dress from Morton James that I wore in Atlanta last weekend for the panel discussion I did with Atlanta Apparel at AmericasMart.  What initially seemed quite intimidating--publicly speaking in front of a pretty healthy crowd--turned out to be a really fantastic experience thanks to my comrades Grace Kristin , Michelle, & Megan.  Topics of discussion included ways for brands and businesses to grow with bloggers, how to increase your social media presence, and just the many ins & outs of the blogging business in general---something your girl can chat about until she's blue in the face.  The weekend also included a tour of some amazing showrooms thanks to Atlanta Apparel, another luncheon panel discussion at AmericasMartas well as a lovely cocktail party at the Reeves & Company Showroom--simply adore Lindsay & Analeise.  The icing on the cake; however, was getting to hang with my fellow bloggers without a doubt...such a fab group of gals (see below)!  A huge Thank You to both Atlanta Apparel & AmericasMart for having me--enjoyed every moment!
Sidenote, but a very important one---if you're digging my dress, online shoppers rejoice as Morton James just launched their eCommerce site---hot damn---non Kentuckians can shop from the comfort of their casa!  Fab news for all!  Alright gang--cheers to a lovely week---let's all make it a wonderful one!
