Hey Y’all! This is my last set of pictures from back home with true Fall weather. I absolutely love the ivory and blush tones I’ve been seeing everywhere for Fall. Its a fresh outlook on changing colors. Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean we have to dress dark and dreary! I’ve been adding blush tones to almost all of my outfits lately.
I’ll be back to some transitional outfits (blush included) as I brave the cold-morning-but-hot-afternoon situation that is currently going on in Dallas. The good news is that the State Fair of Texas is ready to roll! I can’t wait to check it out and report back!
This post is also on the following link ups!
I am SO excited today because I have two of my favorite things to share with everyone! 1. A killer new recipe and 2. A couple of AMAZING blogger friends that I’ve collaborated with! The ladies over at Darling Be Daring have a killer site and are definitely worth a follow. Today I’ve made Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls and they have a little twist- they’ve made Apple Cinnamon – Cinnamon Rolls. Be sure to hop over to Darling Be Daring for a little cinnamon roll twist!
Now I want to warn you that this is not a quick and easy recipe. This one takes yeast, time, rising, punching, and more so don’t think you can just whip these up one morning. The good news is that you CAN put everything together and then put them in the fridge over night before baking. I highly recommend these delicious beauties for a special weekend!
I found this recipe on Confessions of a Bright Eyed Baker this lovely lady really knows what she’s doing because the cinnamon rolls are amazing!

There’s something so beautiful about a Fall wedding. The air is crisp, leaves are falling, and if its outdoors, the background is beautiful. I had the chance to go home a few weeks ago for a sorority sister’s wedding and it was absolutely perfect. I chose to wear a darker dress with 3/4 length sleeves and open toed booties that I picked up at Target that day (I know, Target shoes are fab!)
Now I am sorry to admit that I did that annoying things that all bloggers do every once in a while and wore a dress that was given to men and that is basically no where, added a vintage snakeskin belt, and carried a clutch I found at a small boutique in Vail four years ago. Please don’t hate me! I’ve tried to find replacements.
As I’ve grown busier (and busier… and busier) I have re-invested in my love of stripes and denim. I know that I already did a series of posts (one, two, three) featuring this particular pair of jeans but I have been living in them lately! There’s something so easy going about stripes with a pair of jeans that fit so well and and are so broken in. You know what I mean?
This past weekend I went home to Ohio for dear friend’s wedding and I was shocked by the cold weather! When I left Dallas it was in the nineties and suddenly Fall was in the air! Luckily I threw in this striped shirt – stripes go with Fall in my mind – and this puffy vest. It was the perfect combo to run around on the weekend and grab lunch with friends!
Vest: Lilly Pulitzer – no longer available- here’s the Fall version Striped Shirt: J.Crew Denim: Citizens of Humanity Necklace: Handmade by Laura Similar Shoes: Kate Spade New York Purse: Vintage Coach Crossbody Similar

Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons of the year. It is a time for renewal, re-organization, and re-energizing. It seems no matter how I plan in Januaray, I always need a few more things to feel Fall ready. I need a new planner, some organization tips, and buckets full of sleep! I can definitely turn to the internet for organization, and I take my own tips for healthy sleeping habits, but I need help on the agenda side. When I look for an agenda it needs to be stylish, clear, large enough to fill my days but small enough to fit in a purse or work bag. As soon as I moved to Dallas and asked around everyone pointed me to Swoozie’s. I was able to find a perfect Kate Spade Agenda before it was even available in Kate Spade stores! Needless to say, I was impressed. Swoozie’s is now my go-to for entertaining, stationary, phone cases, and gifts. You can honestly find just about anything there.

I had an outfit post planned for today and then I saw the Altuzarra for Target collection and completely changed my mind! I absolutely love these Target collaborations with major fashion houses – they create wearable fashion and bring it to everyone! There’s nothing I love more than wearable fashion. This Altuzzarra collection will definitely bring professional’s wardrobe straight from Summer into Fall and even winter. And it doesn’t get much better than a piece of clothing with such a long lifespan!
I’ve seen a few of these fun posts lately and I have 30 minutes in between classes so I thought I’d give it a whirl. The basic premise is that I decode the prettiest pictures on my Instagram! (Follow me!!)
This post is actually part of an outfit post. It had started raining and I took shelter on the front porch and forced my poor mother out in the rain to get the shot. I ended up not loving my “front door backdrop” and did my best to hide it on my Instagram post! The outfit took a solid 20 minutes to pick out and perfect and the photo shoot took just as long.
One of those “I have no idea what to wear” days and it was cold and rainy. Its obviously from last winter, but it became one of my favorite looks to recycle. I think I spent 10 minutes walking around the office trying to get away from the terrible blue carpet and then another five minutes arranging my hair to fall “effortlessly” in front of my shoulder. You don’t want to know how long it took to position the coffee cup just right!
I waited for the perfect, sunny day to throw this dress on and stand in front of the window with the sun beaming in behind me. I focused on the rings because I desperately love Helen Ficalora and I want to win her Instagram contest so badly! #noshame
This is my favorite combination of dainty necklaces. My parents got me the monogram for my birthday and my roommate gave me the mini Texas necklace this past year. Before taking this photo I spent far too much time untangling all the strands and making sure they laid just right. Oh, and I centered the necklaces inside my collar as well. It was a process.
DFW airport, delayed flight, and proof that I *can* travel light if I *want* to! I love this structured Kate Spade bag and decided to leave it open for added texture and depth. The Toms were just a super fashionable perk.
Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share my post with y’all tomorrow- but for now I leave you with this gorgeous Alice + Olivia Lana Geometric Print Voile Dress. It is a beautiful piece and I love the looser fit with the cutout back. Green is going to be huge this Fall as well- just wait and see.
