Fighting the Gloom

Y'all, it's been gloomy here in Georgia for the past week.  There has been a constant misty drizzle a la Seattle with a little break only to mist and drizzle some more.  I decided to fight the gloom with an outfit of pastels and white.  Yes, both are okay after Labor Day, just keep the linens and gauzy fabrics in the warmer months, but by all means wear your white denim and chunky pastels knits on into winter!

~ What I'm Wearing ~

White, Distressed Denim: American Eagle (sold out) | Similar
Pastel Blue Sweater: I got this sweater last year from my old online favorite, Piperlime and sadly, they are no longer with us.  I love the v-neck and shirt-tail hem on this one from Gap.
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Pastel Floral Pumps: Forever 21 (old) | Similar
Necklace: Stella & Dot
Bracelets: Stella & Dot

Are you a pastel and white after Labor Day girl?

The Start of Fall and Fabulous Bags

Happy Fall, Y'all!!  The official start of fall is finally here and the temps actually cooperated enough for me to wear some layers (and even flannel) to celebrate my favorite season!  With the change of seasons also comes a change in my bags.  My usual summer day bag this straw Tory Burch tote that I've carried every summer for the past several years.  I love it but I'm ready to swap it up once Labor Day rolls around.  I began my fall bag search a month or so ago and I fell in love with Vera Bradley's entire new line of totescross body'ssatchelsbackpacksshoulder bags and clutches.  They are all so fabulous it was hard to choose which would be my go-to bag for fall.  I was torn between this navy and black bowler satchel and this cheetah calf hair beauty and then I came across this denim and quilted leather satchel and knew it was the one.  Dress it up, dress it down, work day or date night, it's the perfect bag for me!

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Quilted Denim and Leather Satchel: Vera Bradley c/o
Wood Watch: JORD c/o
Bracelets: Stella & Dot (retired) | Similar here and here
Top: Phillip Lim for Target (old) | Similar in solid navy
Plaid Top: Old Navy (last year) | Similar
Skirt: Michael Kors (old) | Similar
Necklace: Stella & Dot (It can be worn more than six ways!)
Sunnies: Vera Bradley c/o
Red Polish: OPI

Do you change out your bag with the season?  Which Vera bag is your favorite?

Saying Goodbye to Summer

This is it ~ today's the last official day of summer and tomorrow, at 4:21am, will begin my favorite season of the year ~ fall!!  Now if the weather here in Georgia would magically cooperate...

What better outfit to say "goodbye" to summer in than my favorite trend of the season, a jumpsuit, in my favorite colors of the season, turquoise, white and purple.  And I'm happy to report that the jumpsuit trend isn't going anywhere as the temps get cooler.  I've got a few perfect-for-fall jumpsuits on my radar like this one, that's a great option for date night or an evening on the town, and this one (which I just ordered), that would be perfect for a business/casual office or brunch with friends.

~ What I'm Wearing ~

Jumpsuit: Forever 21 | It's on sale for under $20!!
Lace-up Sandals: Target (sold out) | Almost identical pair here
Straw Bag: Old | Similar
Earrings: Stella & Dot (can be worn three ways!)
Necklace: Stella & Dot (I'm wearing the top piece)

What trend did you wear this summer that you'll be carrying on into the coming season?

I'll be back later this week with some early fall fashion!

Two for One

It's still officially summer for a few more days and it's still summer on the blog with two mostly white outfits from The Loft Boutique.  Yep, it's a two for one today!  Because both of these outfits are from early in the summer most of what I'm wearing is sold out ~ but ~ I've found similar, and in a few cases identical, pieces for your shopping pleasure! ;-)

Orange Scarf: Similar | White Pants: Identical | Tote: Obsessed with this one from Vera Bradley! | White Tunic: Similar | Wedges: Similar

White Vest: Identical | Floral Top: This one would transition into fall beautifully | Tote: Almost Identical | White Pants: Identical | Wedges: Similar | Betsy Pittard Necklace: In a different color combo

I'm almost ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall ~ how about you?!
