Hey guys! I’m back with a fashion post! This is all about maxi dresses which I am so in love with these days. They are the perfect thing to wear to a wedding, for a family christmas card (wink wink), or a shower. I really like floral prints because they help hide my little belly that my two babes left me with! I am almost back to my starting weight, I just have some skin around my belly button that needs to tighten up. For the most part clothes look totally fine, but not so much in tight dresses. That’s why I choose either a floral print or something with a little flow to it. It is all about feeling confident in whatever you wear so once I put on my outfit I just mentally tell myself that it looks great! If you feel great, it will show to others. This dress is from Windsor and is gone, which I’m so sad about because a lot of you guys asked for a link on instagram the other day. But I have linked a few others that are still just as pretty! My shoes are from Nordstrom, so those are linked below as well! They are extremely comfortable, I wear them whenever I have to dress up! I hope you all had a great Halloween! I’ll put up some family photos we took soon!

Something I have been loving lately are midi dresses. For some reason I never used to wear them, but I find them to be extremely comfortable and work for many occasions. Especially black ones. You can add a jacket, some jewelry, and you look totally put together. Especially with the holidays coming up, this style of dress would be perfect for a work party, Christmas Eve, or just a night out.
How is Thanksgiving in a few days?? Are you all ready? Good grief the holidays snuck up on me this year. My parents are going to be out of town so we’ll be spending the day with Andrew’s family. Usually we flip flop between our parents house’s because they both live in the same town. Are any of you hosting Thanksgiving this year? I think once Andrew and I have our house fulling furnished I’ll want to have it here. I’m a sucker for pretty tablescapes! I also wanted to remind you that I’ll be doing multiple gift guides this year so make sure to check back for more! And on Thanksgiving I’l have a list of sales you won’t want to miss! Have a great day!
I am all about boots this fall! From ankle, to wedge to over-the-knee, they are the perfect addition to any look. Since I usually find my favorites shoes from Nordstrom, I rounded up my favorites for you guys. I really do feel like you can never have enough! I especially love black leather ankle booties. They give any outfit a little edge. I also am really into suede boots this year. Nude ones add a feminine touch and can go well with a lot of colors. I just bought those over-the-knee black boots and am in love! Let me know what style boot you like to wear the most! 1-Kristin Cavallari
The other day I went to the pumpkin patch with my friends and I took some pics to share with you guys! Nothing like a rustic pumpkin patch, am I right? I was really hoping for a legit corn maze but there was only a hay maze. Meaning we could see everything over hip-level. Super fun for little kids, not too scary for this 26-year-old. Have you guys been to a pumpkin patch yet? I always try to go every year to get in the fall spirit. Andrew couldn’t go this year because he has his Board exam this Wednesday so he’s been studying like a maniac. Which is great! But I’m ready to get my husband back soon! Once he is done, he’ll be completely done with school and can start working full time! I’m so proud of him for all he has accomplished. If any of you have gone through physical therapy school, you know what a job it is. Being married to someone going through it felt like I was in school for three more years too. (Okay, I know it was harder for him. But still!)
Pumpkin patches are totally acceptable photoshoot locations right? I’m going with yes! I loved how all these little families are walking by me trying to pose… One day I’ll have cute pictures of my little kids, but for now it’s just me haha.
I used to love salt water taffy. But now I look at it and think instant cavity.
Here is our wheel barrel of pumpkins! We later went home and painted them. Way less clean up and mess. And the pumpkins last way longer.
Our super fast and wild hay ride.
I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
It is finally flannel weather! Well almost. I feel like I’ll wake up to overcast weather and then midday I’ll already be in shorts! Not okay! I wanted to pair some fun new pieces I recently got and put together a classic fall look. I’m currently really into destroyed denim and booties. I guess I’m always into booties, BUT I have been loving the combo lately. And this new camel bag is so nice! It fits a ton of stuff and I’m digging the color. I hope you all enjoy this look!
I recently spent the day with Style 20/20 in Newport Beach. We had a taste of the new Style 20/20 Academy they have developed. It is a series of classes for those of you who have aspirations of becoming a stylist. Style 20/20 will give you all the tools you need in order to live out your styling dreams and make it a lifelong career. Check out their website for more details!
We first learned about all the new trends that have been spotted on the runway recently. Leopard, mod and velvet were a few of my favorites. One great and easy way to incorporate trends into your wardrobe, is to use accessories. If you aren’t comfortable wearing full on velvet pants, find a top with velvet detailing. I love the look of a luxurious leopard coat, but it’s a little too much for my everyday style. What I like to do is wear a pair of leopard ballet flats. You still feel like you are staying on trend, but can feel comfortable in your look.
A great tip on styling is to take time to understand your client. Instead of pouring what you love onto someone else, find pieces for them that fit in with their lifestyle. We had some fun learning how to style a rockstar. The main thing with working with musicians, is to know they have strong senses of what they like and dislike. The great part is you can push the limits a little more. The Style 20/20 Academy will look something like this. A very hands on experience, learning the ropes of working with all types of clients.
We finished the day styling our own ‘rockstar’ outfit. We chose our selections from a wide variety of pieces from Lip Service Cult, The great Frog LA, and Peavey. I went with an outfit that had bits of my style, but a few more edgier pieces. I’m a huge fan of using neutrals, but mixing it up with different textures. This coat adds so much interest over the crochet slip dress. Adding in some black and gold accessories completes the look. I loved looking at what everyone else chose for their outfits. Mixing fabrics from leather to velvet added so much dimension to each look.
Happy Monday everyone! Is this time change messing with anyone else? I have been going to bed so early, but it’s kind of nice. It is supposed to cool down this weekend. I am so over the heat, considering this past week was in the high 80’s and low 90’s. In spirit of the fall feeling coming up, I paired a lot of my favorites together for this look. Infinity scarves, booties and military green jackets are a few of my go-to’s. PS. I bought Taylor Swift’s new album yesterday and I cannot stop listening to it! I love the new sound and 80’s vibe. So good. Have a great week everyone!
I have been obsessing over booties. I just got #6 in this collage to wear at fashion week and love them so so much. Get yourself some booties for the fall. They are so versatile which makes them a closet essential! My favorite way to wear them is by dressing them down with boyfriend jeans and a flannel. They also add a great look to dresses. No matter what your style looks like, there are endless options… open/closed toe, thin/chunky or no heel, suede/leather, hardware…you get it! Next time you are shopping, stop by the shoe department and try a pair on. Tweet me a picture too! Who else is SO ready for fall!? Bring on the colder weather! So have fun shopping my top pick below. I tried to include all price points.
Can you believe it is almost September? What the heck? That just seems crazy to me. I swear, I always feel like summer will last forever and then…bam…it’s over. So even though it is still hot (yes even in Seattle-I think we brought the heat with us), I felt like I should start thinking about fall fashion. I am getting a tad over the ‘cochella’ look, which kind of went on the entire summer. But hey, I am all about it don’t get me wrong. So in honor of fall, I put together an outfit that is much more fall-appropriate but isn’t full-on chunky sweater and boots. Wearing pants was a big deal for me! Haha…but seriously. Adding in some heels dresses up this simple look and wearing a cross-body bag keeps the effortless summer vibe. And how cute is this one?? I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a great week!
