I’m not one to usually gravitate toward fit and flare dresses, but for some reason I love this one! Although feminine in shape and style, I think the color keeps it from looking too out-of-the-norm for me. Sometimes it’s not just about how the piece looks on you, but how it makes you feel. I’m that girl who feels sexy and chic in jeans and heels, but this dress makes me feel like $100 bucks. Added bonus, my husband loves it too!

20 Fall Outfit Ideas

Fall Outfit Inspiration

As the end of summer draws near, I thought I’d share some past looks to help you get ready for the fall season. This post also shows my obsession with the color tan, but at the same time, how versatile it can be. I’m literally wearing some shade of tan/brown in every outfit which proves, I’m crazy or classic neutrals are the best way to extend your closet and get the most use out of every piece. While putting this post together, I realized I’m wearing jeans in every look, which I hope to change this fall. I’m really going to try to incorporate different silhouettes, because let’s face it, jeans everyday can get really boring. Plus, it’s always nice to see how someone takes their signature style and adapts based on different occasions or trends. Bring on the skirts, dresses and trousers this season!

I’ve pulled as many pieces from the outfits above that are still available to shop. I’m excited to add new pieces to my fall rotation, but seeing as a lot of these are classics, you will be seeing them repurposed on the blog as I’ll be sharing even more ways to get the most out of your classics.

Who loves the new Instagram update? I think the full sized photo option is pretty awesome especially since your photos still show up as squares in your feed. I however, have yet/ don’t know if I will be posting full images… I finally got comfortable documenting my life in a square, so now it seems so natural. Speaking of Instagram, I’ve been thinking about sharing a post on how I shoot photos for Instagram and the apps I use. Would that be something you’d be interested in?

How was your weekend? Mike and I finally had one of those weekends with no set plans. We played tennis, caught up on DVR’d shows, and I tried to get ahead with work. Blogging full time has been a big change for me and I’m still trying to get my schedule perfected. More on this topic later this week. All in all I’d say it was the perfect weekend of relaxation and productivity… the perfect combination to help kickstart a brand new week. Happy Monday, friends!
