Happy Fall, lovers!!! Sorry I’ve been a little MIA on the blog, but now that I’ve gotten my class up and running and the craziness of September is behind me, I’m back! Fall is arguably the best season for a number of reasons, but the obvious reason for me is the clothes! I am such a layerer (is that a word? I think no, but just go with me) and being able to throw a blazer or leather jacket on with a  pair of booties and run out the door is just the best. Speaking of booties, I have been on the hunt for a great pair of brown booties since last year, and I finally found them! Check these out (they also come in other colors) and I promise you won’t be disappointed. Also, I got this blazer/coat/not sure what to call it but you get the idea from Zara in London when my mom and I went this summer and I’m so glad I did! And I’m so glad they still have it so you guys can share in the amazingness! Now off to arrange my pumpkins… :)

holiday look #3: separates

You guys know that I’m a pretty thrifty shopper…one of my absolute favorite pastimes is finding fabulous pieces at discounted prices. But, it really doesn’t matter how wallet-friendly something is if you aren’t going to get a lot of wear out of it! That’s why one of my favorite pairings for events around the holidays (and all year long!) is a simple skirt with a special top – you can wear them a million times in so many different ways!

Here’s one look that I’m loving…
