Happy Wednesday!

Every day is starting to feel a little more like Fall here.  It is finally starting to cool down in the evenings, which is a nice change from how unbearably hot it has been.

My dress is another great piece from Rachel Parcell.  It is an easy dress to just throw on for a put together look.  The quality is amazing and I know I will wear it a lot this season.  It would also look great with a felt hat and even a black cardigan.

Fall Ruffles…

Happy Tuesday!

How cute is this ruffle top from Rachel Parcell’s latest collection?!  I almost didn’t order it but I am so glad that I did! It also comes in this pale pink color which I am seriously debating on ordering as well. It is longer in the back which makes it a perfect top to wear with leggings.  My booties are from last year but I have linked almost identical ones below.

I recently tried some samples from Rodan + Fields  and I have to admit… I LOVED the Night Renewing Serum.  My face has never felt so soft.  I noticed a difference immediately after applying.  I purchased the ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to really try it all over yet.  I put some on my legs and feet and was very happy with the results.  I am excited to try a few other products and will post my reviews for you as I do.  I am considering ordering the REDEFINE AMP it up Special since it comes with the night serum I am obsessed with, plus a bunch of other goodies I think I would be interested in.

It’s the weekend!!

I cannot believe we are almost at the end of September already!  Where does the time go?  I will say that I am really looking forward to October this year.  Even though it is Andi’s second Halloween, it will be the first one she can actually participate in.  We can’t wait to take her to the Pumpkin Festival, go on a hay ride, pick out a costume and go trick or treating!  I am excited to see who she will pick to dress up as.  My guess would be Elena of Avalor but a girl can always change her mind. 🙂


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend.

Happy Friday!

We took these photos about a month ago and originally I wasn’t going to post them, but I really like the contrast with the green door.  Unfortunately the dress I am wearing is now sold out but I have linked a few very similar ones below.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Wednesday!

It has been a few days since I have posted anything.  I was super sick over the weekend and didn’t even leave my bed Saturday.  Thankfully, I am slowly starting to feel better and so far I don’t think I shared my illness with anyone… Fingers crossed!!

Today I am wearing a soft and feminine maxi wrap dress from Rachel Pally.  It is on sale and sizes are going fast!  I threw a white tank up underneath since it has such a deep v neck.  It’s the perfect dress to wear anywhere; brunch, a bridal or baby shower, or even for a day of shopping.  I can easily pair it with flat sandals and shorten it by blousing it a little more over the tie waist.

Happy Weekend!!

Rachel Parcell just announced that they are relasing their Fall collection on Monday morining.  They will be introducing 6 new styles!  I cannot wait to see what goodies will be in store.  I love everything that has come out thus far, especially this lace pencil skirt from Spring.  By adding an oversized sweater, I have transformed it into a skirt that can be worn throughout the Fall season.  It is extremely soft and has the right amount of stretch to it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Thursday!

I am excited to share this dress with you because it is extremely comfortable and ON SALE!  It is a super soft midi dress that was perfect for summer and great to wear early into the fall.  Today I have it paired with a jean jacket and sandals but you could also throw on a pair of ankle booties, like these, a jacket or cardigan and a gold scarf.  My favorite feature is it has pockets!!  For $40.80 you can’t beat it! They are going fast, so make sure you grab yours while you still can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!

One of Andi’s favorite things to do is to go walking.  She loves exploring down sidewalks and getting to see new things.  The deer statue immediately caught her eye so she had to go in for a closer look.  She kept saying “woof woof woof”, because she thought it was a dog.  Since I am not too sure what sounds deer actually make, I just went with it. It is really hard to get photos of her from the front since she is always on the move.

I bought this skirt and top for her last year when she was still an infant.  We didn’t find out what we were having because we wanted to be surprised, so when she arrived, I was so excited to buy little girl clothes.  Many of the things I got for her are now starting to fit.  When I originally got everything, I thought it would be years before she could wear some of the outfits.  I can’t believe how fast time is flying by!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Today I am wearing a few of my favorite jewel tones. You can tell from some of the photos that we got caught in the rain during our photo session, but everything worked out ok!  At least it wasn’t pouring.  🙂  My dress is a jersey knit which makes it so comfortable.  It also comes in black and cobalt! These booties are so unique and come in 4 colors, including a beautiful red color.

Happy Friday!!

Today I am wearing one of my favorite colors for Fall.  This was actually one of my wedding (which was in October 2009) colors.  It reminds me of pumpkin spice and it just screams “FALL” !  Now all I need is the temperature to start dropping.  I don’t think I can take this heat anymore! 🙂

Unfortunately this sweater is already sold out but I have linked a few similar ones below.

Have a great day!
