We made it to Thursday! Sorry for getting this post up so late, our day ended up not being what we had planned. Everything is good to go now though! This week has gone by so fast and I am happy to say that I have gotten a lot checked off my forever long to-do list! I don’t know about ya’ll, but I am about 95% done with summer. I love our lazy mornings and filling our days with whatever we want to do, but I am over the heat and ready to get back into our routine. I have always loved and thrived on a routine. I think the girls do too, they like to know what is next. And now that I think of it, so does Bill. I guess we are one of those families. I am also ready for fall and everything that comes with it! Chilly mornings, football, pumpkins, fall activities and the clothes! I just love a cozy sweater and leggings! Who doesn’t, right?
This week on Instagram I asked some fellow moms what their favorite fall staples were for their closets and I got some really good answers! I feel like I live in workout clothes, and it MAY be time to change that up a little! (At least one day a week. HA) Before I share their answers with you and pieces that I either own or found online STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING and go follow me on Instagram here. You wont regret it, I share lots of pictures of my ridiculously cute kids! Also before I start, I should disclose that I am not a fashion blogger as I am sure you will be able to tell! Ya’ll ready to get started??
Cardigans were brought up several times! I personally love a good cardigan. They’re great to throw on over my Pure Barre clothes aka my every day clothes. They’re also great with jeans or leggings. Here are two that I purchased from the Nordstroms sale. I’m going to send one back, I would love your opinion on which one I should keep! I will be living in whichever one I keep! It is amazingly soft and so comfy cozy!
I browsed through my closest and I was surprised that I didn’t really have any of these! They would be great to throw on with leggings and flats or boots with fun jewelry and you’d be set! I’ve linked a few options for you below!
Has anyone ever found a chambray that they love? I have one from Loft and from Gap and to be honest, I don’t really love either one! I asked on the post for recommendations and it seems that no one had really found one that they loved, so I guess I am not the only one with that problem! Someone recommended checking out Madewell, and I do have a couple of pieces from them that I really like so I jumped on their site and this is what I found, chambray ex-boyfriend shirt!
Before I start with jeans, I will say that I believe you get what you pay for when it comes to your jeans. So with that being said, I have a few brands that I stick to with jeans and they’re on the pricier side. Last winter I picked up a dark wash distressed pair and a black pair of these and they’re so good! I would highly recommend them!
So the only booties I have in my closet are these Tom booties that were popular a few years ago! Are those still even in style anymore? When booties were brought up a few times, I decided to look and see if I saw any that caught my eye. I think I found a pair. What do ya’ll think of these? Barris Block Heel Booties My only concern is that they’re suede. Suede and toddlers make me nervous. All it will take is one trip to Chick-fil-A and they’ll be covered in spilt milk and ketchup! Who am I kidding? I probably wouldn’t even make it out the door before someone gets something on them!
Ladies, I drank the Kool Aid and bought the Zella High Waisted Leggings while they were on sale and they are the bomb.com! I would suggest taking a sip of that Kool Aid too!
I also own two pairs of these and they’re really good too! They suck you in and you can bend over without worrying about anyone seeing your panties!
The Spanx leggings are supposed to be amazing, but I personally do not own them!
A few people mentioned swing or t shirt dresses! Here is my problem with those. How do you sit on the floor at story time or bend over without constantly worrying. And my kids love to lift my dresses up when I wear them! I personally have always loved dresses and I own more dresses than anything else, but I feel like I am in a place in my life where they just aren’t practical for everyday wear. With that being said, I own more Lilly Pulitzer dresses than I care to admit but we are talking fall so here are a few options!
These were brought up probably the most out of anything anyone recommended! I was out running some errands yesterday and having lunch with my memaw and ended up picking up a pair since everyone said how great they were! They only had navy in my size, but they ordered me a black pair and they’re currently on the way to my house! I can see these being on repeat!
I picked these up at Lululemon but a couple of mommas recommended Athleta too! I’m not sure why my feet look so funny in the picture above! This just shows I’m not a fashion blogger or a very good photographer! I will work on it before I show you my feet again! So sorry!
One last thing- do you use Ebates? If not, you need to ASAP! You get money back for things you were going to purchase anyways! Every site that I visited while searching for these items, with the exception of Nordstroms (they used to be on there, but aren’t anymore for whatever reason) was eligible for cash back on Ebates! We’ve made $65 since we signed up and we always forget to use it on Amazon and Etsy! You can use this link to sign up! Just FYI- I will be compensated if you sign up and use the link I provided after you make a purchase!
I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!
