Favorite Fall Outfits: Casual & Affordable Style

Favorite Fall Outfits: Casual & Affordable Style

This blog post has LONG been in the works, I have been browsing and shopping and returning clothes for weeks now in order to complete five perfect fall outfits. I am so excited to share my favorite fall looks that are real outfits all ladies can wear. I wanted the outfits to reflect my very casual, California style while also being at a price point that everyone could afford. These casual fall styles will be the perfect attire to drink beer in at an Oktoberfest or hit the pumpkin patch with your kids. Whatever activities your fall consist of these outfits will keep you stylish and comfortable all Fall long.

It’s also very important to mention that not one item listed below is over $75. I follow a lot of style bloggers and the outfits on their posts are full of pieces I would never splurge on, $250 for a pair of jeans, NOPE!

If you have been falling along on my Instagram, I have spent this past week vacationing on the central coast of California. The central coast of California is a must-visit destination for all ages and vacation interests. We stayed in the sleepy little town of Pacific Grove, which is just south of Monterey, CA. This coastal town had the perfect cool temperatures to bust out all of my favorite fall clothes that I was dying to wear.

Once you begin to scroll through this pictures you will notice a few trends.

1. I love a bodysuit! I think it looks so flattering and is a perfect layering item under a light jacket or sweater.

2. Leopard is my absolute favorite print of the fall season. Its funny, I am actually not much of a print girl, my closet is full of neutral items but leopard has really caught my attention this season and I hope it stays for a while.

3. I am obsessed with high rise jeans, specifically this pair! I have a super long torso so I feel like high waisted jeans help ensure that I always feel appropriate.

A wrap is such a nice fall accessory, so perfect to just throw on real quick.

Will an oversized sweater ever go out of style?! I sure hope not.

If there is one thing I believe every twenty-something needs in her closet, it’s a leather jacket! This faux leather jacket is great for all seasons and is such a nice, quality item for a great price.

Fall Fashion: Casual Weekend Outfit

Fall Fashion: Casual Weekend Outfit

We made it to Monterey, CA! Yesterday, we woke at 5AM to make the trek from Palm Springs to Monterey for a fun little vacation with our closest friends from Birmingham, AL. I was so excited to escape the extreme heat of Palm Springs and enjoy the cooler coastal weather. The cooler temps also meant I was able to bust out my favorite, new fall clothes.

I get so excited when a new season is upon us and I can invest in some new fun clothes. This year the purchases were sparse because where we live there is no such thing as fall. A fall day means the temperature drops below 100 degrees, but definitely not sweater weather.

The fall clothes I have invested in items that can be worn in cooler weather but also appropriate for the spring and summer. For instance, this thermal shirt looks so cute with jeans but also perfect for lounge attire. Its soft, comfortable and very breathable; I have seen this shirt all over Instagram and thought it was time I finally invested in one for myself.

Last time I posted these jeans they were the most popular clothing item I have ever posted on my blog and that makes perfect sense because they are an amazing pair of well fitted, affordable jeans. A must purchase!

If you follow me on Instagram you will quickly see that these shoes are a new staple of mine. I am obsessed! If you are looking to invest in one pair of shoes this fall than this pair of leopard mules is the pair that you need.

Clearly this trip to the central coast is not fun at all. Next time you visit California the central coast is a must stop! The weather is perfect, the views are amazing and the wine is delicious! I think I need to write a perfect California road trip because I love to play tour guide for this great state I live in.

2017 was a big, major year for me, I got married! Being married is great, I love every second of it but to be honest, I didn’t love planning a wedding at all. We had a very non-traditional wedding with very little pomp and circumstance and yet, I still didn’t love planning the wedding.

Something I did love was buying a plethora of new white dresses, I took full advantage of bridal white. Don’t tell my boss, but I spent an hour or two at work browsing through hundreds of sites to find the perfect dress for my bachelorette party, bridal shower and all the other festivities revolving around the wedding.

My bachelorette party was in Austin, TX over memorial day weekend and I had this image in my head of what my weekend dress was going to look like, I found tons of perfect dresses but never did I find one at a price point I was willing to pay. For my bachelorette, I ended up buying dresses from Forever 21 and Lulu’s but when it came time for the big night out I wore one of my best friends dresses that she brought for me.

I have been browsing websites nonstop to find the perfect collection of affordable white dresses to share with you guys and I am so happy with what I have found! If you are looking to just purchase one white dress for all the wedding festivities this collection of white dresses is perfect for you. These dresses can be worn to your bachelorette party, your bridal shower, your rehearsal dinner, whatever the occasion these dresses would be appropriate.
