Boho Chic

If I could live in this Free People dress, I really would.  It's lose and comfortable but also beautiful.  I paired it with 2 different shoe options.  One for summer and the other as you transition into fall.  When it cools off you could also pair it with a fur vest.  Another jewelry option is putting a simple stud earrings and a fun choker!  There are so many options for styling this great dress! BTW, it comes in three different colors!

STYLE SATURDAYS: Fall Staples 2016

While shopping for myself and doing some personal shopping for some of my favorite clients, I have found some great fall staple pieces.  These are all perfect for me and my day-to-day life as a mom.  They keep feeling comfortable but getting me out of my usual, everyday yoga pants.

This perfect tee comes in a wide assortment of colors.  I now have it in white, gray and maroon.  It is a simple long sleeve t-shirt with a little asymmetry that makes it different. 

These Dolce Vita sneakers are not only comfortable but really cute on!  I have worn mine with cut-offs, rolled jeans and even little t-shirt dresses! These each come in assorted colors.  

I live in denim cut-offs in the summer and jeans in the fall.  AG is by far my favorite brand.  They fit me the best of any other.  These distressed black ones are some of my new favorites.  I got mine at Boem in Charlotte. 

I have been LIVING in my Z Supply Camo Dress from Boem. It's comfy and I always get so many compliments when I wear it.  It's a win-win!

 I love vests for fall and winter.  In Charlotte, quite often it doesn't get cold enough for a heavy jacket so a vest keeps me warm enough. I also love my arms not being constricted by a coat if I am running lots of errands and shopping for clients! They are very versatile and look great with a dress or tops and pants.

Fall Wish List 2016

In the fall if I am not in my workout pants, I bet you'll see me in casual dresses and boots or booties.  My closet always has an abundance of dresses like these.  They are perfect if you are headed to Bible Study, a school meeting or coffee with a girlfriend. I feel dressed up but completely comfortable.

These speak for themselves.They are perfect with jeans, cutoffs or leggings.   I put the Anthro Swing Sweater on and didn't want to take it off!  I can't wait for it to start cooling off so I can wear it!
I love that Bombers are everywhere again.  They are lightweight so they perfect for cool temps.  You find them at every price point AND everywhere from Target to Neiman Marcus.  
I so glad fall maxi dresses seem to be everywhere now.  If you pick a long sleeved one, just be careful of too much pattern with all of the fabric! These are just a sampling of my favorite Free People ones.

I remember all of my fabulous chokers from the mid-90's.  I have seem some very similar in some stores that I have been browsing this season.  They can be worn casually during the day or for a fancy night on the town. Boem in Charlotte has a bunch of great ones!
Fall time for me and Allen is filled with lots of fun date nights…from Oyster Roasts to Horror Movies and Haunted Houses to Mountain getaways. We celebrate my birthday and our Anniversary in October so it is sure to be a fun-filled month!

Block heeled booties are everywhere.  These are a few of my favorites.  They each come in three different colors.
I tend to search for a good bag every couple of years.  I have a great one for Spring/Summer but I have just started the hunt for a Fall/Winter bag.  These 2 are someone my favorite so far. I'm pretty picky and don't rush the "process".  I'll keep you posted!
