Is It Fall Yet? Fall Outfit Inspiration!

I know, I know it’s still summer and I live in Florida. But I was born during a blizzard in Iceland and then lived up north for some years before landing in Florida and I’ve experienced all the seasons. My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall because you literally only need a light jacket or cute fall outfit and you’re good to go, it’s not too hot and not too cold. (Name that movie line reference, lol) Literally perfect weather.

With all the Nordstrom sale fun I decided to change things up a bit and style a fall outfit to shoot. (I took one for the team because OMG it was hot outside, lol.) But I’m in love with this oversized sweater dress from Pretty Little Thing it’s not too heavy in material so it can be layered or worn alone for a light fall look. You can also mix it up and wear it with sneakers instead of boots but I was in a fall mood so I had to wear my knee high boots.

My boots are so comfortable and versatile. They can be worn with dresses, skirts, shorts and even over jeans. I’ve had them for years and they still look and feel great. My bag is the perfect fall tote and I love its oversized style. Perfect for all my snacks I’ll need while I’m running around like crazy this school year. I can even fit a bottle of wine in there. That’s right I checked, you’re welcome. 😉

Sunday Chic

  

I love a cute yet comfortable dress. Especially when I can dress it up or down. This adorable plaid dress is just that. I wore this to church on Sunday and but I didn’t want it to be overly dressy or take a turn for too Christmasy. So I paired it with a light faux leather jacket and nude pumps. 

  
I added my yellow necklace to bring out the yellow in the print and dull down the holiday vide some more but I didn’t add anymore jewelry because I didn’t want it to be over the top. 

   
    
    
    
    
    
 

I love figuring out ways to take different seasons fashion trends and dress them up or down to wear all year round. I hope you’re as excited for the weekend as I am. Happy Friday dolls.

On A Plaid Day

For some odd reason I’m in love with plaid and flannels. I mean seriously I would probably be a lumber jack if I was able to lift an axe and wasn’t terrified of bugs and night creatures in the woods, lol. But since my lumber jack dream is on hold I thought why not just enjoy my love for their signature pattern, lol. 
I hope you all are having a beautiful Friday and have an awesome weekend.

Me and the hubby had a Sunday Funday on our kids free weekend and figured we would clean out the car and then take our dog Brooklen to the farmers market. This maxi dress I found at Ross for an unbelievable $13.99 is silk material and long. I love how it flows and just lays over my body instead of clinging to it. Especially on a nice warm day. Naturally I ended up changing into some shorts and a tank top because it just got to hot but for the start of the day this was a great outfit. It’s also great on date nights. What do you like to do on your lazy Sundays?

Stripes and Combat Boots

I found this dress accidentally. (Well not really because I was out shopping, lol) but it wasn’t what I was shopping for. I stumbled into a store I haven’t been in for a long time called Styles and just browsed around.

I’m a huge bargain shopper so when I saw the sale rack I went straight to it. On it was this cute asymmetrical dress for only $5 and I thought well I’ll take it lol.

My boots I’ve had for a little while and decided to wear them and edge up the outfit a bit.

The 2013 VMAs

The 2013 VMA’s was full of surprises this year. Some good, some bad and some WTF?! But here’s our run down of what went on.

THE GOOD

More like the amazing, OMG moments of the night.

NSYNC performance. It just brought you back to the days of having their posters on your wall and you jumping up and down on your bed when their videos came on TV and JT was just amazing. They all looked great to.

Lady Gaga the opening act. I was so excited. I love the new song. She looked amazing. That body was on point and she was just as crazy, wild and her performance was amazing. I also loved her gays dancing with her. AAHHHHH just perfection.

THE BAD

Ok so I guess everyone decided to wear the same thing to the awards this year in different ways then? Because all I saw last night was jewels, feathers and lace. Not to mention 2-Chainz looked better in the Versace print pants both he and Grimes wore and I still hated the outfits.

It was so hard to choose some outfits that I loved just for the lack there of. Here were my top 5 best and top 5 worst outfits of the night.

Best

Ciara looked beautiful and showed off her body in her Givenchy Couture feathered gown.

Ellie Goulding. Her dress was amazing for the simple fact it was different, not sheer, see through or lace, lol. The spiked, floor length number with high slit looked beautiful.

Ariana Grande in her Kenly Collins little floral mini was pretty and age appropriate.

Jennifer Hudson (pictured with Adam Lambert who looks sharp btw) looked lovely on the VMA red carpet in a Dior top and skirt. Very nice and well put together. Not as glam as some but hey it’s not feathers, lace or see through lol.

Mary Lambert. Lambert looked beautiful in a floor length sparkly gown.

Worst

Snooki and J Wow. I’m assuming they went prom dress shopping together? Oh wait that’s right it wasn’t a high school prom. You ladies have come a long way with your style but come on.

Iggy Azalea. She’s a beautiful woman but I was so tired of the lace, sheer, and everything else I just couldn’t deal. Her Emilio Pucci sheer gown matched her hair and skin tone on the VMA red carpet. Not a winner for me.

Miley Cyrus. I’m guessing with her new changes and her performance that night she was so excited she just threw on whatever was shiny and jeweled to stand out in the crown? Her Dolce & Gabbana outfit was not a hit with me.

Erin Wasson. I mean really, do I even have to say why she was on this list? It looked like she literally put on a black bandeau top and black boyshorts and slipped on a sheer curtain. She topped that off with a Givenchy turban.

Rita Ora. Some may have been a fan of her Alex Vauthier dress but I can hardly say the same. This feathered long-sleeved gown with white fabric in the front and that black band. I just wasn’t a fan at all.

THE WTF?!

Miley Cyrus Performance

Now I have no problem with growth and change but for real though what was up with that performance and those outfits?!

Teddy bear baiting suit
Nude bathing suit
Jeweled Red Carpet pantsuit catastrophe

I’m just saying and why in the world are you grabbing a married mans crotch and twerkin on him when his wife is clearly in the audience? The tongue all out, the whole time bro really?! The facial expressions in the crowd just said it all, I mean really.

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez

I mean really yes they both looked pretty last night. I’ll skip over the fact that they both wore navy gowns which just reminds me at how young they are. It’s like matching with your best friend on a night out but whatever. I’ll go right to the fact that I thought it was the Taylor and Selena show because the cameras panned to them literally the entire show. Like OMG we get it they are there, but really? Do I have to look at their facial expressions through every single performance?! So many other celebrities I wanted to see that night and all I could see was the same circle of people the entire night. MTV get it together next time.

Well that was all for my take on the 2013 Video Music Awards. What were your best and worst moments of the night?

A Midi Love Affair

20130812-004919.jpg

Ok so I said my obsession would become a real thing lol. I’m in love with midi skirts and dresses. I have some in my online shopping cart right now lol. What a coincidence that this one says LOVE lol.

I never buy clothes because of label or price tag. I buy them because I love them. My style represents who I am and I feel that if you have to buy expensive things to look good your doing something wrong.

Don’t get me wrong I love some high end things as well which I will feature soon. But I want my blog to be for everyone. No matter what your pockets look like.

20130812-005359.jpg

My clutch I have had since last Christmas and actually this was my first time using it because I forgot I had it lol.

20130812-005433.jpg

This skirt is also cotton, very breathable and very comfy. I have also developed a love for sneaker wedges and crop tops lol.
