Things Im Obsessing Over This Week: Bell Sleeve Sweaters

Things Im Obsessing Over This Week: Bell Sleeve Sweaters

Happy first week of fall!! With all the fall fashion flooding my Instagram the past few months, it feels like fall has been here for weeks. I love fall fashion trends, if you want to read more about my love for fall fashion I posted about it here and here.  I love fall fashion outfits so much but because of my location get very few opportunities to dress for the occasion.

Last Thursday, my husband said we should go to Denver next weekend and without skipping a beat I said sounds great. He has friends that will be in Denver for a geology conference and my oldest friend that just had a baby lives in Denver. Booking a trip so last minute stresses some people out but its par for the course with the two of us, we love spontaneous adventures.

I have really been looking forward to trips outside of Palm Springs. Don’t get me wrong, I love Palm Springs, but we are almost in October and every day the thermometer still reads 100 degrees. So when I have a trip planned to somewhere with cooler temps I count down the minutes until we hop on that plane.

Last year, when we were living in Birmingham, AL I stocked up on all kinds of fall weather clothes, now looking back it probably wasn’t my smartest choice. I knew I was moving to the desert and yet I couldn’t stop buying new sweaters and boots.  One of the sweaters I purchased in multiple colors is this BP flare sleeve sweater from Nordstrom. At one point they were on sale for $23 so I really took advantage of that.

Side Note: Birmingham, Alabama in the fall is a wonderful place. The weather is PERFECT, the leaves are changing and everyone is in such a good mood because college football is back on.

Yesterday, I posted this picture on Instagram and got SO MANY questions about this sweater. I LOVE this sweater so I was so happy to see that my Instagram friends did as well. But there is one problem when I went to send links for this sweater I couldn’t find it anywhere; it’s sold out everywhere! I scoured the internet for hours looking for this sweater, and nothing.  Believe me, I looked everywhere!

So I did what I know how to do best and I went on a shopping mission. Luckily, I found some super close dupes to this sweater. I hope you love these below-listed bell sleeve sweaters as much as I do.

What is your favorite fall sweater trend? I live for an oversized sweater with fun details like an open back or a flared sleeve. I love to pair sweaters with a high rise jean and my favorite booties.
Happy Fall Y’all.

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.

The Best Of Labor Day Sales: Casual Fall Outfit.

Today is a big day in our house for two very different reasons. Its the day my husband looks forward to all year long, the start of college football season but it also happens to be our first wedding anniversary! Besides the aforementioned reasons, my favorite part of the long, holiday weekend is all the sales!

I never post on Saturdays but I couldn’t wait to share these deeply discounted items. My entire outfit is on major sale for the long weekend and everything is under $50!

Leopard Print Mules

September marks the start of jean season and close-toed shoes so what better way to bring in the new month then stocking up on some new jeans and fun mules.

I made my husband take tons of pictures of me throughout the neighborhood because  I really wanted to show off my new leopard mules that I am obsessed with!! They are Steve Madden and look so good with casual jeans or a dress.

My high rise jeans are 50% off and are the perfect, ankle, transition jean. So comfortable, so cute. I am usually a 6 Petite in jeans but size down with this retailer.

This black halter top is meant for summer but would look great underneath a leather jacket, once the temps start to drop.

Casual Amazon Little Black Dress

Casual Amazon Little Black Dress

I have been getting tons of questions on Instagram about my new Amazon dress so it was time I added it to the blog. It’s my new favorite Amazon fashion find.

This casual Amazon dress is EVERYTHING. It’s flattering, so comfortable and the best part is, it’s only $14.99!! What!?! The sides are ruched giving this causal dress great shape! Because of the ruched sides and stretch, it would be a great dress for expecting moms!  You can also find this dress in long sleeve and tank top versions. Its the perfect dress to run errands in or to dress up for a night out. I can’t wait to wear this dress in fall with a jacket and my favorite Nike’s!

I want to hear everyone’s favorite Amazon finds because I have been on an Amazon buying streak lately and I don’t want it to end!
