These are just a few of the pieces that I have added or am hoping to add to my closet in the coming months. Believe it or not, that darling bow bag is from Target! {& it’s part of the BOGO sale} Oh Target, you never fail me.

Clearly bows and leopard are still two of my favorite trends! Also, faux fur vests are looking to be another popular item again this year. If you are like me, you sometimes wait too long to pull the trigger on a trend and end up with a lousy selection to pick from {I did that last year with wanting to buy a faux fur vest & not being able to find one I loved}. So I encourage you to snatch up the popular fall trends now while there are still lots of good options out there!

I know we all spend a good amount of time on the Internet and browsing different shops so tell me…. What else are you craving for fall??

Shabby Apple

Get ready girls… to meet your new shopping destination!
As a teacher, it is often difficult to find dresses & skirts that are an appropriate length for standing in front of middle school students. However, I finally hit the jackpot when I found Shabby Apple!

Dress: Shabby Apple c/o / Cardigan: Target similar here/ Boots: Tory Burch via Nordstrom / Hat: American Eagle similar here and here / Watch: Kate Spade / Necklace: Very Jane similar here / Bracelets: Mindy Mae’s Market c/o & J.Crew Factory

Shabby Apple was kind enough to send over the Frida dress to kick-start my new collection! This chambray shirtdress has perfect pinstripes, front pockets, & a tie waist. I paired the dress with my favorite autumn colors & these darling boots for a fun fall style. When the temperatures drop, I’ll change it up with printed tights or fleece leggings!

 Shabby Apple was founded upon principles that are extremely unique and distinctive! The company mission to help beautify & empower women really caught my attention. Also, perhaps my favorite characteristic of the company is their generosity! They help support women all over the world. I think that’s an idea we can all get behind {& shop for}!

With a slightly retro & vintage vibe, Shabby Apple dresses are perfect for the working gal! My next purchase will definitely be the Dakota dress!

Which pretty Shabby Apple dress has caught your lustful eye?


Today’s look is quite the bold mix of patterns! Two years ago I would have laughed at the thought of wearing this outfit. However, my style has gradually evolved and I’ve become far more bold in my outfit choices and the things that I will pair together. I think it’s important for our taste to develop and evolve over time & to step our pretty little shoes out of that comfortable fashion box!

Striped Top: Old Navy similar here / Herringbone Vest: J.Crew Factory / Black Skinnies: American Eagle  similar here / Flats: Tory Burch / Leopard Belt: Target similar here / Envelope Clutch: Target similar here, love this leopard one / Watch: Kate Spade

The best tip I can give to those of you hesitant about mixing different patterns is to pick one color palette and stick with it! Black & white is such a classic combo. However, combining different black and white prints is a fun, trendy take on the timeless duo. 

Before you go, you MUST check out these flats! I absolutely adore the herringbone print & bow. I just got them yesterday and can’t wait to get them on my feet!
