Wanna smile often this fall? Get you a pair of leopard mules and get ready to live your best life in serious comfort. Y’all, I ordered these calfhair mules recently thinking they’d be great with jeans once the temperatures dropped, but now I’ve got plans to pair them with just about every fall (and almost fall) thing I own. In addition to my favorite boyfriend jeans or skinnies, I’m loving them with a little black dress or a faux leather skirt.
I wasn’t sure how comfortable they’d be with the pointy toe, but I have to say, they definitely exceeded my expectations in the comfort department. (For reference, I sized up a half size.) And, if you’re loving the idea of leopard mules but aren’t quite sold on these, scroll below for a few more pairs that I love.
And now you’re probably thinking – is this the same girl who’s always blabbing about heatstroke and never-ending summertime? Talking about fall fashion already? Well hot and sweaty or not, at some point I’m ready to leave the denim shorts and summer duds behind and trade them in for something a little more pre-fall friendly. It actually dawned on my yesterday that it is, in fact, almost September. WILD.
This faux wrap dress is super soft and lightweight for now but so good with a denim jacket once that actual fall weather hits. It’s got a flattering (for me anyway) cut, and how cute are the little button details? I dig it. Linking this little black dress and a couple of other similar styles I’ve got my eye on below – which is your favorite for transitioning to fall?
If there’s one thing in every girl’s closet, I’ll betcha it’s denim. But these days, denim is EVERYWHERE and popping up in way more ways than just your basic jeans. From jackets to jumpsuits, dresses and even accessories, there’s something for every blue-jean baby out there. Wear them solo or wear a couple pieces together (like here and here). Just don’t wear them all together, okay? Wondering how you’d wear the denim kicks? Pair them with a little black dress, with an all-white look, or go edgy by pairing them with leather. My top picks? Well the little dress at number 6 is currently on its way to me, and I just NEED that little spring jacket at number 10. What are some of your faves?

I’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a new pair of flares for fall, and this pair of McGuire denim is on its way to me now. Got your eye on a new handbag? Treat yo’self. Looking for a great pair of boots? Get ’em, girl! Here’s hoping you find exactly what you’ve been wanting for fall.
Today I’m fall daydreamin’ y’all, and my cart runneth over. There are so many killer trends this year (helloooo, 70’s revival…yet again), but right now my mind is on all things basic. This season, I’ve got my eye on three types of denim: destroyed black skinnies, clean dark flares, or button-front skirts. And I need them all. Since we’ve got a little more hot weather than I’d like left, I’m loving this racerback dress that can be worn alone with booties now or layered up later. And the thing I need the most from this little list? (And yes, I realize the word need is ridiculous in this case.) I’m dying over the jumbo version of my beloved Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody. I mean, isn’t there a saying about this? If you love something, let it go buy it in jumbo? My shaky trigger finger is just hovering over that “Place Order” button. I’m weak, people! What do you guys have your little fall hearts set on?
Despite our warmer temperatures lately, I just can’t seem to step away from my plaid and flannel addiction, and this one, in particular, has been in heavy rotation. It’s oversized and oh-so-cozy, and I just can’t get enough. We snapped these photos a couple of Saturdays ago when I dragged Eric with me on a Target run, something I usually immediately regret. And this time was, well, as “delightful” as ever. I just don’t understand – how could anyone not like playing photographer and going to Target on a Saturday afternoon? 😉
This leather jacket was such a sweet find at T.J.Maxx recently, and I can’t help but throw it on with just about everything. I love how it adds a little something interesting to easy boyfriend jeans and a laidback plaid. Finished with a pair of classic leather booties, this outfit is my ideal weekend wear and a comfortable fall uniform. Which pieces are currently on replay in your wardrobe? Happy Friday, everyone! xoxo
There’s no better way to break up a neutral color palette than with a bold pop of orange and contrasting blue accents. A cinched blazer paired with basic grey skinnies creates a flattering silhouette, while gold accessories are the perfect final touch. Hope everyone had a great weekend! xoxo
I love the casual cool effect of mixing spring neutrals (both solids and prints) and adding one standout pop of color like these blue skinnies. By pairing the statement denim with a loose tee and tomboy-inspired of-the-moment wedge sneakers, you’ll create a laidback so-chic-and-didn’t-even-try vibe. Finish the look with a muted animal-print scarf, snakeskin handbag and simple stackable wooden rings.
