Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m going to keep today’s blog post short and sweet, but make sure you scroll all the way down for a fun surprise!

If you know me (and by now I think you do), you know I love a good leopard print. As soon as I saw this sweater from Chicwish, I knew I had to have it! From the neutral colors to the balloon sleeves to the oversized fit, I loved it all. To be honest, when I first saw the sweater my immediate thought was that it would look so cute with my Spanx leather leggings—which will definitely by happening soon!

Instead, I decided to pair it with the adorable crop flare jeans that have been lying neglected in my closet. I shared these on an Instagram stories try-on in October and haven’t really worn them since. I think they pair so well with the sweater; they give the look a little something extra. And because I wanted the flare to stand out, I opted for a pair of white booties to contrast with the black and pull together the whole look.

Side note: I didn’t mention above, but the sweater is incredibly cozy. I’ll 100% be wearing it on repeat throughout the winter.But anyway, that’s all for the outfit this week! And now, on to the fun surprise…

40 Fall/Winter Amazon Finds

40 Fall/Winter Amazon Finds

Happy Friday, friends! I’m back again this week for another Amazon wish list/finds post because you all loved the last one! Now that it’s November, we’re all starting to think about two things: 1) the cooler weather and 2) the holidays. So when you voted on stories the other day that you’d prefer to see an Amazon wish list this week I though it would be the perfect time to share late fall outfit ideas as well as holiday gifts/stocking stuffers.

Everything I added to this list is something that I would personally want for myself and that I thought you would love as well. So whether you’re treating yourself or thinking of gifts for your girlfriends, sisters, moms, etc. I think you guys are going to love these finds! It’s definitely a mix, but I tended towards cozy sweaters, fall jackets, holiday dresses, and jewelry/miscellaneous finds. So, let’s get to shopping!

Thanksgiving Outfit Idea: Leopard Cardigan

November is only two days away *gasp* so that means it’s time to start thinking about your holiday plans. And if you are anything like me, the outfit you’re going to wear is top priority. Which is why today I’m sharing an easy Thanksgiving outfit idea that’s as comfy as it is cute!

When I’m busy shoveling stuffing in my face, getting dolled up is the last thing I want to do. But, I also hate looking like a slob… Enter the perfect outfit combination that feels liked dressed up pajamas: a leopard cardigan and a black dress. Let’s start with the cardigan.

Whether or not you’re going to wear one to Thanksgiving dinner, a leopard cardigan is a must this fall. I’m going to say that yes, leopard is a neutral, so a leopard cardigan will work for so many different outfits. (Side note: my mom has been wearing her leopard cardigan non-stop and every time she gets compliments from strangers). I love the one I’m wearing above for two reasons. A) it has pockets and B) it’s such a nice, thick, cozy material. I will say, I wish it was a tad bit shorter, but I’m only 5 ft. so I’m sure most people won’t think it’s too long!

Moving on to the dress. If you follow me on Instagram, on stories I was debating returning the dress because I think it’s also slightly too big on me. I decided to keep it (I’m going to try to shrink it in the wash) and I think it still looks so cute on! It is a body con dress, but the ruching detail makes it flattering on. The craziest part is that it’s only $14 right now! This will be the perfect dress to help mask any Thanksgiving dinner food babies lol!

I kept the rest of the look simple and added black booties, my black bag, and gold hoops. I think the leopard cardigan does all the talking for this outfit. So, anyway, that’s all for today. Is this a Thanksgiving outfit you’d wear? Let me know in the comments!

P.S. I think last week’s midi skirt outfit is another great Thanksgiving outfit idea!

Slip Skirts and How to Wear Them for Fall

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a trend that moves from season to season. And if there’s one trend that sticks out in my mind, it’s a midi slip skirt. Slip skirts took the fashion world by storm with Realisation Par’s leopard print slip skirt. Since then, so many variations on the trend have come out. But, I feel like this summer is when more people started to embrace it.

While slip skirts had their moment this summer, I think they truly shines in the fall and winter. There are so many possibilities this time of year when it comes to styling a slip skirt. Because the weather took a warmer turn, I paired my gold slip skirt with a cream colored blouse and my favorite white booties. I love the neutral palette that let the gold skirt stand out. I also love how the loose blouse added to the movement of the skirt, giving it a more romantic feel.

But, that’s just one way to style it! I think adding a sweater over top, either tucked into the skirt, loose, or belted would look adorable. Another alternative would be to tuck a cami into the skirt and throw a cardigan over top. Besides different sweater options, I love that the skirt can be dressed up or down. Add some strappy heels for a night out or some sneakers for a casual weekend look—it really all comes down to how you accessorize!

Anyway, I hope you liked today’s look! I’ve been loving the slip skirt trend and think this outfit would make the perfect holiday look. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Fall Staples: 9 Pieces Your Wardrobe Needs

Fall Staples: 9 Pieces Your Wardrobe Needs

Hello, hello! This week as been a little weird so I haven’t gotten around to shooting a full look on the blog (I’ll try for tomorrow), but I wanted to share a quick post inspired by the outfit I shared the other day on Instagram. While you know I’m all about trying new trends and sharing them with you guys, I will say there are certain wardrobe staples that you shouldn’t neglect. Here are my top 9 wardrobe staples for fall:

Button Down Top

Whether you go for a military style like I’m wearing above, a denim button down, a flannel, or a classic white, button down tops are so easy to style for fall. Tuck it into a skirt or jeans, leave it open over a tee or cami, tie it around your waist—the possibilities are endless!

Denim Skirt

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile then you know my obsession with denim skirts. I seriously wear them year round. I love a classic denim skirt like the one I’m wearing above, but a button down one is also so cute! Just think of the fall outfits you can pull together with a denim skirt.

High Quality Jeans

A good quality pair of jeans is an absolute necessity for fall. When you have jeans that are well designed and flattering it makes putting the rest of your outfit together so much easier. I recently bought a pair of Madewell jeans and have never worn a better fitting pair. I actually have two pairs of Levi’s and they just don’t compare! While it can be daunting to spend a little more on jeans just think, you’re going to get so much use out of them—the cost per wear is unbeatable! (see my fall denim guide for more)

Neutral Booties

Whether your go-to neutral is black, brown, tan, or, dare I say, snakeskin, a neutral bootie is one that will go with pretty much everything in your fall wardrobe. My tip is to look for a medium height, block heel bootie. You’ll be able to dress them up or down and still walk long distances without the blisters!

Neutral Boots

Basically everything I said about neutral booties applies here! My suggestion is a pair of boots that hits right at the knee for the most flattering look.

Long Sleeve White Top

A layering top is another necessity for fall. I think a long sleeve white top is the perfect piece because it’s basically a blank canvas. With all of the other wardrobe staples you can complete soooo many different fall outfits. Off the top of my head: the white long sleeve top tucked into a denim skirt and paired with knee high boots and a cozy scarf!

Neutral Sweater

A black, gray, or tan colored sweater takes you a long way with outfit choices. Much like the long sleeve top, it’s perfect for mixing and matching different outfits. Make sure you pick something well-made and cozy!

Neutral Cardigan

A cardigan is the perfect piece to own when it’s not quite jacket weather, but your top isn’t cutting it. Just like with the boots, make sure the color you pick is one that goes with what you already have in your wardrobe to get the most use out of it.

Cozy Scarf

It wouldn’t be a complete fall wardrobe without the ultimate fall accessory: a cozy scarf! Whether you want the classic plaid blanket scarf or a neutral option that will go with literally everything, a scarf can instantly transform any outfit from basic to stylish. Bonus: if you go with a blanket scarf you have the option of wearing it like a shawl/ruana (which would look so cute over your long sleeve white top!).

I think that just about covers all of your necessary fall staples. What else do you think could be added to this list? Let me know in the comments!
