Monogrammed Field Jacket

I've always loved a good field jacket for fall, they were go-to during the first few weeks of classes in college. This navy monogrammed one from MarleyLilly will be perfect for casual looks this season. I styled it a little more simply for this post, but I also plan on wearing it with t-shirt dresses and skirts. And with Charlotte's warm weather, I will most likely be wearing it through the winter as well!

Pantone Fall Colors for 2017: Ballet Slipper and Butterum

Faux suede dress | Watch | Tassel loafers | Satchel Bag | Coat

Ballet Slipper
 Sunglasses | Heels | Statement Earrings | Crossbody Bag | Tie-neck Top

I'm breaking down another 2 colors from Pantone's Colors for Fall 2017! As a former ballet dancer, I am a little partial to the Ballet Slipper color. I have worn similar colors of tights and shoes for many years of my life. Although I have to say, real ballet slippers and pointe shoes are much more of a beigey-peach color. And as a pale person with brown hair, I'm not a big fan of the Butterum color. I just don't find it very flattering in clothing on me. However, I think it's one of the most versatile colors for bags! And in case you missed them, check out the first two Pantone colors, Grenadine and Tawny Port!

October Finds Under $50

Plaid skirt ($45) | Pearl bracelet ($35) | Statement necklace ($17) |  Bow mules ($25) | Polka dot shirt ($23) | Statement earrings ($35) | Floral shirt ($25)

It's time for the October edition of Finds Under $50! As I was putting this together, I have seen quite a few fall florals trending like this top, which I am all about. I have also loved seeing some brighter colors like in these pink bow mule flats and these cobalt statement earrings. But if you prefer a neutral, they are also available in black. And I also think this plaid skirt would be so cute for work! In case you missed them, here are my finds under $50 for August and September.

Striped Monogrammed Tunic

I think we all know that I love both stripes and monograms. So, of course I needed this tunic top that puts the two together! I have mentioned (more than) a few times that I am not a big fan of fall. But I have always really liked wearing the color red. And I always wear a lot more of it in the fall and winter. So that is one thing I do look forward to, and this outfit is the beginning of that for this year! I also just added this pair of gray of booties to my closet. The heel is a little higher than my other pairs, which I think will be great to dress up some more casual looks.

5 Fall Favorites

As it is starting to cool down in Charlotte, I thought I would share my top 5 clothing items for fall. I probably wear at least 1 of these items in any typical outfit from October to December. These are all from last year or years prior, but there are lots of very similar options that are currently available!

1. Puffer vests
Living in North Carolina, I don't bring my full coats out until at least November. These vests are great for when it's just a little too cold to not wear a jacket. And the fun printed ones can add so much to an outfit!

2. Trench coat
This is also a favorite for early spring, I found my favorite one from Asos about 2 years ago. It has always been to my go-to for work on chilly mornings.

3. Ankle booties
I wear these for just about every casual occasion in the fall, and most of the winter as well. And as a size 5.5, Sole Society is my favorite place to shop for them!

4. Over-the-knee boots
I think a pair of flat black OTK boots go with just about anything for fall and winter. And I also love to have a heeled pair in navy like these!

5. Dark-wash denim
These are also a favorite for winter and spring as well. My favorite pairs that I have had for a few years are from J Brand and J. Crew.

Pearls and Stripes

I think it's safe to say this outfit is a perfect example of how I dress for when I don't want to look too summery, but also don't want to wear fall clothes yet. Some mornings I have been bringing my trench with me to work lately, but the rest of what I wear still works for the warm temperatures. I also jumped on the loafer mule trend with this pink pair. I have gotten lots of compliments on them, but they are unfortunately not very comfortable. I really like them if I am only wearing them for a few hours though! I think they add a lot to a simple outfit, and they were only $15!
