Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 13 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
Crisp fall air, changing leaves, fall layers and pumpkin spice everything is what is currently occupying my head space. Once the end of August & beginning of school hits I get overly excited for the seasons to come. Many think I am a bit crazy but I LOVE fall and the beginning of winter! Something about getting all cozy and “hunkering down” for the cold season ahead! I am in the midst of another HUGE closet clean out – donating and selling (100% of proceeds go to charity) on my Poshmark account and I am searching for a few pieces to add to my closet for the fall season. After browsing Nordstrom and their exclusive Nordstrom Made brands, I realized that it would be REAL TOUGH to only chose a few, so I took home these pieces……
You will see a few items in these outfits that are staples for me like my Zella high waisted leggings. These babies will forever be in my top 5 staple pieces and I love them SO much. I am wearing a size XS and they do run slightly big, I would size down one! If you are pregnant, you’re in luck! Zella also makes a maternity version of this brand that you can find HERE! My first outfit is my lace cami that I have also had for a few years and Nordstrom STILL carries it (thats how good it is) here! I have on a size XS! My cardigan is actually from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year (and currently on sale now) and I think it was one of the items that people didn’t talk about but should have! I love how soft it is and the length is perfect. It runs TTS! Earrings can be found HERE!
Buffalo Plaid Boyfriend Shirt | SO soft and falls just right – love the fit of this! I am wearing size XS!
Lace up booties are a weakness of mine. No idea when that started but every time I see a pair of lace up booties I just need to have them. I saw these ones from Treasure & Bond and immediately scooped them up. They definitely have a higher heel than what I typically wear but WHOA, they are sexy! Love them! I do recommend getting one size up because they run a bit small in my opinion! Many of you have been asking about a dupe for my every day leather tote and I finally found one that keeps its shape! It also fits a laptop VERY easily, is reversible and would fit anything and everything you would need! I will show you more of it in my stories so that you can get a better idea of how big it is and the structure that it has!
Lastly, a big fall hat is a must have! I love having hats for bad hair days or hair day 6 when you don’t want to wash your hair. I have many summer hats but wanted to have a cute fall/winter hat in black this year so I scooped up this one from Treasure & Bond, similar here!
