Colorful Stripes

Colorful Stripes

Recently I swooned over an IG post from a fellow fashion blogger. Want to know what the photo was…An adorable striped turtleneck topped off with a beanie while out in the snow. Jealous was my first thought. It is so not fair that they have cold weather and Texas is still reaching the 90s. Oh well. My next thought was how sweet and perfect the moment was that the photographer captured.

That post inspired me to go out and find some tops that featured stripe work. The more color the better. I found a contender friends. This top is from Old Navy. It is lightweight and the stripes consist of five cheerful colors. It is a solid piece that can be worn alone or layered easily.

Today I wore it with my ripped jeans and long cardigan. This navy cardigan is so cozy and adds depth to the look. I added a light color boot which happens to be on repeat a lot this season. The color is perfect. The whole outfit is finished off with simple accessories – pearls, watch, and a small clutch.

You can easily achieve this look. It is affordable, chic, and totally on trend.

Have fun shopping and recreating this look. As I find more striped tops I will share with me with you all!

I went shopping today and came across a beautiful look. Such great inspiration for fall weather. Below is my interpretation on it!

Animal print is so hot right now. This cardigan is great with the two tones and I love the loose fit and low V-neck. That layered with a simple camisole and a jean jacket is so amazing. Wear it with black denim and you turn a casual look into a sophisticated one that is casual chic.

Add a nice crossbody or backpack to complement this look. These bag options are very practical for the everyday woman who is on the go.

Accessories can be worn many ways. I would wear a gold hoop, a fun tassel, or pearl studs depending on my mood and goal! Each bring richness and flare to this fun outfit.

All in all this is such a fabulous look for fall.

Top: Women's Anne Klein Turtleneck Sweater, Size Large - Black / Jeans: Mossimo / Shoes: A New Day / Earrings: Women's Bp. Faux Pearl Ear Crawlers / Bag: St. John Collection

Nothing like adding a pop of color to spice up a look. I love black. It is a staple in my closet. It is sophisticated, slimming, and fabulous. When I wear black I try to bring in color to add that flare and breakup the look. I found some great sandals and a purse that is on sale now.

This short sleeve turtleneck is a great buy. You can wear it with so many things this fall. It is cozy and lightweight. You can pair it with jeans like I did and have a beautiful look. You could also layer it as the colder months arrive.

These ruffle sandals are flirtiness at it’s best. The vibrant red is sure to standout and these beauties can transition from day to night. The best thing is they are under $30. Who can beat that price?!

This bag is available in two colors. Black and red. It is effortless chic and it is a style that is classic and will last a lifetime.

I added a little edge with these pearl crawlers. They look great on and are elegant and fun.

It is that time again for us to start shopping vehicles. In our household we like for both cars to be able to accommodate our pack. Shopping for six can be difficult especially with the style, look, and pricing.

I talked to a great agent at Park Place Volvo who has years experience in the industry. He broke down the top five ways to approach car buying.

  1. Always test drive the vehicle you are going to buy. It sound so obvious, but a lot of times buyers skip this step.
  2. If you are not in a rush to buy, the end of year model is a great time to get a great price.
  3. Go online to get a quote. You can shop other dealerships and be equipped with a great price and options. Additionally, if you find what you want  and initiate the purchase online you can handle the majority of your purchase over the internet and phone and have minimal time in the dealership.
  4. When you are trying to negotiate a lower price give the agent a good reason to discount it. I will refer a friend, use your service department, etc.
  5. If you would like to take the vehicle for the night or weekend most dealerships will allow this exchange. This is a great way to ensure it meets your needs (parking, space for family members, drives the way you like).

By the way, this is the new XC90 inscription with blonde interior. It has a third row, a impeccable safety record, and is a luxury suv at its best! This vehicle take a minimalist approach and succeeds. There are great features with a 360 degree camera, BLIS (blind spot), and park assist pilot. You can connect with the car with a head-up display, Volvo on call, and sensus navigation. There is a premium sound system, which my family will love. Yes please! Let’s see what the hubby thinks…

On to my clothes!

This week I am on a Target kick! They have so many wonderful things in season and are doing a fantastic job.

My shirt, bralette, jeans, and shoes are all Target. They are edgy and that lace adds feminine frill to a more masculine look. The shoes are sweet and fun with the pearl embellishment.

My jacket is Vince Camuto and wears like a dream. I will be in this jacket a lot this season!

I am wearing my trusty gold hoops and watch to add a more polished look!

Happy fall ya’ll!

I am so excited for Fall to arrive. I stopped by Whole Foods today and was greeted by the pumpkin bin. Yea! I am so ready to kick off decorating season.

What is your favorite holiday to decorate for at home? I love to decorate always. I will say that Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are hits in our family. Maybe because we have three months of continuos celebrations of the season and it feels festive for an extended amount of time.

My kids love to help me take the boxes out of storage and place decor around the house. I know pumpkin carving will be a hit too. Until then, I may just bring a few pumpkins home to place on the porch for a pop of color.

My look today is perfect for a casual boho feel. The fringe poncho is very comfortable and the soft and neutral colors make it work for most outfits. I layered with a delicate pink lace camisole. My go to jeans this season are the frayed and hi low hem jeans. I am loving mules this season too. They add great comfort and are wearable year round.

Finish off with a hobo bag, sleek sunglasses, and some dainty jewelry and you are set. I am off to check my inventory and make my home festive. Happy Fall Ya’ll!
