3 Bloggers//Fall Transitions

Fall= plaid, plaid, and more plaid for me. I have a bit of an obsession with flannel shirts, because you style them in so many different ways. Skinny jeans, a leather skirt, layered under a leather jacket, you name it! I just recently picked this one up, and I plan on never taking it off because it is so soft. Layered underneath this light sweater, and it's the perfect Fall outfit. Layering is key for the upcoming months because I could walk out the door in 50 degree weather, and later it will be 75 degrees. How do you transition into Fall? P.S. Make sure to stop by Dear Serendipity and Adored by Alex to see how those ladies transition into Fall! xx 

P.S. Excuse the bags under my eyes, these pictures were taken mid-studying for my Organic Chemistry test today. Yikes!

Black Maxi

I am seriously going to miss my maxi dresses when I have to put them away for Fall. I live in them (I have this dress in two colors!) It is so easy to dress them up or down for running errands or going out for drinks. I love to add a denim jacket over them because I get cold everywhere I go (even if it is 105 out). Does anyone else live in maxi dresses like I do?

Fall Basics

When I put this outfit together, I was having one of those i hate my closet moments. Trying to transition into my fall wardrobe has been pretty difficult considering it it is still 105° here (yikes!) Boyfriend jeans, basic tees and fun flats will have to suffice until I can pull out my leather jackets, boots, and chunky sweaters. My look is normally pretty casual, as I rotate between these jeans or my trusty Jbrand skinny's. Do you have any fall basics that you reach towards?

Watercolor Dress

Even though summer is "technically" over, Fall has not made its way here in Arizona. I swear it is never going to get cool, which is why flowy dresses like this one have been on repeat for me. I am so happy that this week is a short one. For some reason, I cannot motivate myself this week! Yesterday, instead of tackling my to-do list, Brad and I watched four episodes of Game of Thrones. We finished the series, and I am seriously sad that we have to wait until April for the next season. Should we start Breaking Bad or House of Cards next? Have a great rest of your week! xx

A Shirt with a Story

I love a shirt that has a story. My freshman year at SMU, my parent's were in town for parent's weekend. The particular football game was a "Red Out" and we took it very seriously. Of course, I waited until the last minute to find something to wear and looked in my closet and found nothing that was red (that was acceptable for an SMU football game). Panicking, we jumped in the car and headed to the mall. Well, because every SMU girl was looking for something red to wear to the game, they had nothing. That is until my Dad picked this shirt up. I was hesitant at first, but was so desperate for something to wear to the tailgate that started in 30 minutes, that we ended up getting it. Now, every time I wear this shirt, I think of my Dad, which makes it even more special. Happy Labor Day, make sure to see my roundup of all the good sales going on! xx

I am really going to miss wearing my white jeans. I may just have to be rebellious and break the "No White after Labor Day" rule this year. Sometimes I can't resist pulling them out mid-winter with a chunky sweater and black boots! Are you a rule breaker when it comes to this?

Hair Favorites

I'm not going to lie, I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to products. Hair products, beauty products, skin products, you name it. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites. If you haven't tried "it's a 10" then you need to get on that (asap). I use the leave-in product when I want to straighten my hair. It makes it look so silky! When I had longer hair, it would get pretty knotty after a day at the pool, so I came to love the Bumble and Bumble tonic lotion, which gets out nasty tangles and also leaves your hair feeling soft. When I am rushing out the door and want to air dry my hair, I go for the Mai Tai spritzer (I personally like it better than Bumble's surf spray). It smells so good and creates the perfect "beachy waves." I am definitely guilty of not washing my hair every day (after hearing you aren't supposed to, I definitely was excited). Insert: Dove's dry shampoo- it's a lifesaver. Lastly, I always use my Hot Toddy heat protector when I plan on drying/straightening/curling my hair. Do you have any favorite hair products? I would love to hear! xx
