Leo + Camo

I finally wore pants!!! Woohoo! It decided to cool off enough to actually warrant putting on pants. I can't believe I'm actually excited about that. I'm usually all about dresses, but I'm ready for Fall now and so ready for the hot weather to take a hike. 

But back to being able to wear pants, I have been eager to break out my camo pants for awhile now. So it had to be the first pair I wore this Fall. And why not pair it with one of Fall's hottest neutral...LEOPARD. If I had to name one Fall must-have it would be leopard shoes. Anything from flats to heels, every woman needs a pair. I may have every kind of leopard shoe. It makes for a great neutral yet makes a bold statement. 

I absolutely adore these leopard heels because of the t-strap. I found them on brand spanking new on Poshmark for a steal and I couldn't help myself. But I made the mistake of wearing these heels to Big Sis's dance class the other day and when we had to go in and see the little girls, I had to stand closest to the entrance and refrain from walking around so I wouldn't ruin the dance floors. The ONE day I decide to actually wear heels to watch dance practice is the day they have to invite the mom's in. Just great! I guess I'll be sticking to flats or wedges for dance class.

Yes, it's Fall. And yes, I'm still wearing neon. It's a bit hard to jump head first into Fall fashion when it's still so warm out during the day. I try to work in Fall colors or trends but then I go outside and it's 90 degrees and it's got me feeling all summery again. It's not until after 4 in the afternoon that it starts to cool. So for now I'm still strutting about town in my Summer favorites. And this little neon DVF number is amongst my favorites. It needs nothing to give it pizzazz and that may be the reason I love it so much. It stands out all on its own no statement necklace or arm party needed. It's a comfy number that I can literally throw on in a rush and head out the door to do my morning errands and preschool drop off.

Sporting a Leather Cap 2 Ways

So my good friend Bianca over at Lotus Blossom Design had me re-thinking my ban against baseball caps. All Summer long I lived in my Panama hat and my big floppy sun hats. But now that it's officially Fall it's time to find a new hat for the season. And I've been seeing a lot of faux leather baseball caps. But I've always kept a distance from them because I swear I look like an Asian tourist and well that's not the cutest look. However, after seeing how cute B looked in her's I thought I would give it a second chance. 
So after dropping Big Sis off at preschool, Baby Sis and I ran our errands and did our typical mall crawl. And I stumbled upon this lovely bordeaux faux leather cap. It was love at first sight. I loved that it wasn't your typical black faux leather, and don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with that. I just felt like black faux leather was a little too edgy for my taste, but the rich wine color just called out to me. Gave it a try, and off to the register we went. 
Long story, short, I've been pretty much living in it all weekend. Can't get enough of this hat. I've literally been planning my outfits around it. Which leads me to today's look(s). I decided since I had so much wearing it all weekend, I would share with you guys 2 different ways to style a faux leather baseball cap.

Grid And Bare It

If you're anything like me, then even though you weren't at New York Fashion Week you were still following all the fashions from afar. With so many forms of social media there's so many ways to see what was happening without having to be there. 
What stood out to me in so many pictures was all the grid prints. It seemed everyone was wearing some variation of it. And so many collections offered grid print pieces. Seems to me that the grid print will be replacing stripes this season. And don't get me wrong, I love stripes but the grid print is a fresh take on the classic stripe. So I went looking for ways to work this new print into my Fall wardrobe along with my new Phillip Lim for Target purchases.

Black, White, & Pink

Hey Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your last official weekend of Summer. If you follow me on Instagram, then you should know I packed the girls up bright and early and headed to Target yesterday morning to snag some Phillip Lim goodies. And so glad I did. I got my hands on the very limited yellow mini satchel. Woohoo!!! We were second in line, that's not saying much since there were probably only about 10 of us in line total, perks of living in a small town. No one to fight over purses with. HAHAHAHA! Well I hope you all had a chance to pick up some goodies from Target's collaboration. Can't wait to share with you all the things I picked up. Check them out in the upcoming posts.

Today, I wanted to share a cute little crop top I came across and had to have. Now, the only other time I wore a crop top this Summer was in Maui. I felt like it was appropriate and didn't feel like it was too scandalous as a mom. All Summer long the trend was going strong and I kept wanting to try it again but in a more modest way. Kind of an oxymoron I know, but I knew that if I searched long and hard I would find a crop top that wouldn't bare too much and could actually look chic. 

I just recently found this great crop top from Zara. With its long sleeves and loser fit on the body it was just what I had been looking for. And since then I've been loving it. I can pair it with any high waisted skirt and it just barely shows a sliver of skin. 
Outfit Details:
Jacket: c/o Aeropostale | Top: Zara | Skirt: H&M [old, similar here] | Shoes: Coach via TJ Maxx | Necklace: Jane [aka Very Jane] | Bracelet: c/o Lotus Blossom Design | Sunnies: Windsor
And how cute is the leather bracelet I'm wearing!? It's a new piece from A Lotus Blossom Design's blogger inspired collection [check it out here]. I'm so flattered that they have been inspired by style and come up with such a great piece to share. 
Also you've still got time to enter to win the Anthro Inspired Mint Bauble Necklace here. Don't wait because the winner will be announced Friday.

Spotted: one romper + two bloggers

Today, I'm excited to be teaming up with the fabulous Meghan of Citrus Refreshing Fashion. She's stylish and nothing short of sweet, welcoming me into this crazy world of blogging with open arms. She is one of my favorite ladies to follow and I feel so fortunate to get to share with you all how we styled our Ann Taylor LOFT spot print romper
I couldn't resist this romper as soon as I saw Meghan mention on her blog that she snagged it on sale. So I stopped into my local LOFT store and luckily found the last one marked down ridiculously plus an additional 60%. Definitely couldn't say 'no' to that. And since purchasing it, I haven't stopped wearing, well just to wash it. But honestly, I love this romper, it has got to be one of the most comfortable pieces I own. Plus it's super light weight and in this crazy heat wave it's all I want to wear. 
It's easily dressed up like Meghan did, or throw a denim vest [another Summer fave of mine] and you've got a great casual look. And like the girly girls we are, Meghan and I both saw it necessary to throw in a colorful shoe. Fashionable minds think alike!
Outfit Details:
Romper: LOFT [cute dot rompers here & here] | Vest: AE | Shoes: Steve Madden [similar here & here] | Bag: Target [old] | Necklace: Jane [aka Very Jane] | Bracelets: ILY Couture, Forever 21 | Sunnies: Windsor

Make sure to check out Citrus Refreshing Fashion for all the details on Meghan's look.
And don't forget to enter to win the beautiful Anthro Inspired Mint Bauble Necklace here. Giveaway winner will be announced next Friday.

My New Favorite Shoe + Giveaway

Okay, so I'm just going to say it, I'm OBSESSED! With my new Shoemint heels. I've been impatiently waiting for these to arrive. They're the Romy's. They sold out the first time they released them and last month I luckily caught them when they re-released them. They come in nude and black, and trust me I considered getting both colors, but since I have a pair of blush colored lace up heels I settled for just the black pair. But now that I've strapped my little feet in, I'm obsessed and am honestly conteplating getting the nude the next time they release them. And fyi, there is a good chance they will. So if you missed out on them don't fret Shoemint has started a waitlist for these. So get on it NOW! In the mean time I'm pretty sure I'm going to be wearing these as often as I can. Yes, there will be a chance I will be sitting at Big Sis's dance class in these just to strut about in them. They're gorgeous and actually very comfortable. You really can't find a better pair of Giuseppe Zanotti knock-offs.

Rhinestones + Elephants

First I want to start off saying that we're moving!!! Crazy business. Granted it's just across town, but still exciting. Thinking about having to move everything though is daunting. I'm not really the greatest at condensing things down so we may have an issue. Especially with all the baby stuff. I'm just not ready to part with any of it. And that's the other sad part, we've been in our house for 5 years now and we brought both girls home here so I may cry when we do finally say good-bye to this house. Also I'll most likely be posting less since I'll be packing and cleaning the house. And that giveaway I promised last week, I'll have to hold off on until next week. Sorry!
On to other things, with the recent Labor Day sales, I just had to share with you my favorite find, the J. Crew Tilda rhinestone top. Since it's release earlier this year, I've had my eye on it, but was not willing to shell out the money for it. But lucky me, I found it marked down plus the additional 30% off at J. Crew in SD. I snatched up the very last one in my size and scurried off to the registers. I couldn't believe my luck. I just adore the rhinestone detailing on the collar. I immediately washed and pressed it so I could wear it. HAHA! When I love something I just can't help myself. Did you guys find anything amazing during all the Labor Day sales?
