I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend! :) Yesterday was my 5 year old nephew's birthday party which was guessed it....a train station! (Disclaimer: it wasn't really at the Chattanooga Choo Choo as indicated by my post title, but it was at the TN Railroad Museum. That's close enough right?!) So...of course I had to have a mini photo-sesh for the blog :). It was such a beautiful fall day, like warm enough for this new sleeveless blouse I bought a few weeks ago at a local boutique Cotton & Twine (they have a store in Dalton, GA, which is really close to Chattanooga. If you're local, check it out! Cutest clothes!). I just love the loose fit and flowly-ness (is that a word?) of this top....not to mention the floral pattern, AND the lace back...ah just had to have it! :) This will be a fun top to wear next spring/summer too :)

Thanks so much for reading dolls! :)


New Favorite Fur Vest!

October 25, 2014

 {Outfit Details}
Sweater: Old Navy (here)
Vest: H&M (here)
Pants: Forever 21 (not online but similar here)
Boots: Frye (Melissa fave! HERE)
Hat: Target (HERE)

So last weekend I went to Nashville for my Fall Break, and naturally we had to stop in my fave store EVERRRR H&M. I had one mission: to find the fur vest I had been stalking online, but which is always sold out. My bestie & I searched up and down the store and I spotted it...the adorable fur vest I had been wanting! I love the grey/black shade of it. I'm sure y'all will be seeing it a lot more in future posts :) And can we talk about this hat!? I just LOVE's such a perfect fall color. I thought it was a fun pop of color with the grey vest and went along with my pants! Target seriously has the cutest hats for fall! :) Well I'm headed off to a pumpkin patch....hope y'all have a fabulous Saturday!


Casual: Leather Jacket + Leopard Sneakers!

October 23, 2014


{Outfit Details}
Blouse: Old Navy (only have blue/white & pink/white online here, check store for grey/white!)
Sneakers: Old Navy (here)
Leather Jacket: Forever 21 (not online, but love this one here)
Leggings: Charlotte Russe (favorite, here)

I can't believe it's almost the end of October! I sure am loving this fall weather. The temps have been perfect for a light weight jacket which I love this time of year. Fashion is so much cuter when you don't have to hide under a huge winter coat :). So this look I have for you today is brought to you by one of my latest favorite stores for cute fall clothes... Old Navy! Old Navy & I have had a love/hate relationship throughout the years. I have gone through times in the past when I couldn't find anything in their store I liked. But lately (as in the last 2 years) I seem to always find the cutest things there! It is definitely the place to go if you are in the need for casual button up shirts (think plaid, oversized boyfriend type shirts, etc.) I picked up the shirt I'm wearing above and the leopard print (girls size!!!) sneakers above on a recent shopping trip with the bestie. I also have been loving wearing over-sized shirts with leggings lately. It's just an easy, no brainer outfit. Throw on a leather jacket and you're good to go! (which by the way, are EVERYWHERE this fall!). 

Thanks so much for reading!


Red, Black & Leopard Print!

October 10, 2014

{Outfit Details} 
Top: Piko 1988 (here)
Hat: Target (no longer online, similar here)
Boots: Hunter (they no longer have my exact color available but also love this red here)
Tights: Charlotte Russe (love them! Available here)
Scarf: H&M (not online, similar here)

Happy Friday (& Happy October...sorry for the lack of blog posts lately; life's got me busy!). I wore the outfit above to class one day this week & it's definitely going to be one of my go-to looks for fall. Ever since my Nana bought me these red Hunter boots for Christmas last year, they have quickly become one of my favorite wardrobe staples. If you don't have a pair of Hunters I highly recommend them. I love all the colors they come in and they're super comfortable for rainy days (or just when you want to add a pop of color to your outfit!). I'm also wearing a tunic top by Piko 1988. One of my BFFs introduced me to these amazingly soft, comfy & cute tops last week on a shopping trip. In fact I ended up buying 3 because I love them so much. They are perfect for layering with tights & accessorizing with boots, scarves, & hats.
