As soon as the weather turns the slightest to Fall, I immediately set out to find the sweaters that I will be living in for the next several months. My first stop is always Nordstrom for their selection of Free People and once again, it proved successful. the second I put this baby on I knew that it had to come home with me. It is so soft and can be worn with anything and everything. Plus the back (not pictured) of this sweater is slightly opened. Enough to make a statement, but not enough to be too much. With a tank underneath, it’s perfect! It comes in a variety of colors and I may already contemplating picking up one (or two) more! What are your favorite brands for sweaters?

In late June, my husband’s aunt asked me to a jewelry party. Of course, I had the initial reaction that we all do when invited to one of those events. Once she explained to me a little about the company, I have to admit, I was curious. I went not thinking that anything would really be my style, but I was wrong. I could have easily have walked out her front door with one of everything. The pieces were so beautiful and comprised of materials not normally worn. Then I learned more in-depth stories about the pieces, where they came from, who made them, and about the company. Noonday is a company that sources from third world countries and helps provide jobs, healthcare, schooling, and homes for those they employ. All the materials used are particular from those areas and have a story behind them. To me, this means that this is not just a necklace or bangle, but so much more. I may be wearing this necklace to work, but by me doing so I am helping in providing healthcare to women battling HIV and AIDS. How cool is that!? Beautiful jewelry AND a true benefit, how can you pass that up? I highly suggest you all check them out (click the jewelry link for direct access to website).

Fall Wish List

I feel like this Fall, more so than others, I am craving cozy pieces to wear. Although style is still very important to me, comfort is a major player. It is no secret that I am someone who gravitates to neutral, classic pieces and this season I am sticking to my usual habits. I have rounded up my top 6 must have pieces for the fall. Now let’s see how many of these the husband lets me purchase 🙂

I know that I have already proclaimed my love of a good t-shirt dress, so I won’t subject you to hearing all about it again. This combo of pieces however, has me so happy. Sundays is when Dan and I complete most of our errands for the week to come. I was able to wear this all day long! These shoes, which look as though they would be uncomfortable to wear for long periods, are incredible. It felt like I was wearing flats. I was so drawn to these shoes because of the major 90’s vibes they were giving me. I am so nostalgic for that time of my life. All I cared about was the Spice Girls, Lisa Frank, and secretly three way calling boys we had crushes on. It was a much simpler time and maybe this is my way of bringing that back. I strongly urge y’all to get them (also in black). GIRL POWER!
