Fall Layers

 J. Crew, Target / Bottom: AG Jeans / Booties: Target

Henry: Top: Janie and Jack {similar} / Bottoms: Target

Last year during this time we were in North Carolina waiting for Henry to arrive and fall was in full force. Since were in Florida this year, we have defiantly been missing the change in seasons, but this week it has finally started to feel like fall! I layered up with a gingham shirt from J. Crew {the ‘boy shirt’ is my favorite style} and this super soft long sleeve tee from Target. We all know Target is amazing, but I was especially surprised when I went in {for one thing of course} and came out with a new shirt and booties for me, and a pair of pants for Henry. I bought them thinking we’d wear them when we were back in NC, but mother nature surprised me and I’m not mad about it! My booties come in two colors and when I got them they were on sale for $28, how could I resist?!

Since this will be Henry’s first Halloween, we’re getting ready to carve pumpkins tonight and taking him trick-or-treating on Tuesday. He’ll be the cutest pumpkin in the neighborhood!

J. Crew made up a holiday and it might just be my favorite day yet! National Stripes Day is today so break out all your favorites, use #nationalstripesday and celebrate! I paired my top with classic denim and because it was a rainy day, added my favorite boots. My bag is Gigi New York and comes in three colors. I love how versatile it is and this weekend receive free personalization and free shipping on their site!

Favorite Stripes

I wore a layered look to brunch over the weekend and it was perfect for the cooler weather thats trying so hard to warm up. This oversized turtle neck has been a favorite of mine this past season and I love how it looks under a vest. I fit back into my favorite jeans and added classic flats to finish my look. I’ve also been using my tote as a diaper bag and it’s so much easier use than my actual diaper bag. This organizer from ToteSavvy keeps everything in its place and I don’t over pack!

Off-The-Shoulder Dress

Dress: J. Crew / Necklace: J. Crew / Watch: Michele {face / band} / Shoes: Andre Assous

If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect summer dress, stop looking! This off-the-shoulder one from J. Crew is everything and I’d be lying if I didn’t want it in every color! It’s not maternity {which is another reason I love it} and very forgiving. Even with my bump {I tried sizes 2, 4, & 6} and couldn’t tell a huge difference between them. I settled with the 6 so I could get a little extra wear through the summer, but all sizes fit without looking too tight or baggy. If you’re not crazy about the print, no worries! It comes in two solids {white & red}, chambray, and an emerald plaid {part of J. Crew’s Collection line which is a little more expensive} My necklace is also J. Crew and comes in five different colors. I wore it long, but I’m crazy about how it looks double wrapped too! I wore this dress to the cutest Storybook Baby Shower for Henry and it was perfect. I can’t wait to pair it with sandals, a messy top knot and rock it all summer long!

The Basic Button Down

We all have a basic button-down strip shirt in our closet {if you don’t, you need this one} so I’m sharing a classic twist on how to style it! Mine is from J. Crew and I love it’s structured look with the concealed buttons and stiff collar. I updated it by adding a laser cut midi skirt {mine is sold out but I’ve linked similar ones below} and classic accessories to keep it sophisticated and current! My top is 40% off right now at J. Crew so make sure to snag yours before they sell out!

Gingham Glory

J. Crew / Top: Ralph Lauren / Denim: Madewell {same style} / Flats: Chanel {similar}

J. Crew has done it again with the Campbell blazer and it’s everything. I love the blue gingham {it also comes in pink} and I’ve had it on repeat all weekend, I just can’t get enough of it! It dresses up so easily but I love it with a good pair of denim. I wore a classic white oxford under my blazer to really show off the gingham and completed my outfit with a two toned flat {similar and less expensive style here!}

Peacoats and Pops {of color}

J. Crew / Sweater: J. Crew / Jacket: J. Crew {similar} / Bottoms: AG Jeans / Flats: Tory Burch {similar} / Earrings: Lisi Lerch

Happy 2016! Can you believe how fast 2015 seemed to go by?! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year and I hope you all had a great Holiday season! My jeans are a little tighter {so many treats were consumed} but I couldn’t wait to share this outfit with you! I purchased my classic peacoat a few years ago from J. Crew but they seem to rerelease it every year {this year its in cashmere and super expensive} but J. Crew Factory has an almost identical one in four different colors. My sweater and shirt are also J. Crew and an extra 40% off {they’re both already on sale!} I choose a brighter color to give this traditional sweater a little spunk and it adds a great pop of color to my outfit. Ps. Lisi Lerch makes the GREATEST tassel earrings. They come in 22 different colors {mine are emerald green and I’ve linked black} but check out her website for more colors and styles.

The Quilted Excursion Vest

Vest: J. Crew / Top: J. Crew / Denim: Madewell / Bag: Louis Vuitton / Booties: J. Crew

We’ve all been waiting for sweater weather, boots and that time of year where layering is our best friend and it’s officially here! So cue pumpkin everything and put away your summer wardrobe because Fall is in the air. I had been searching for a green vest since last season but couldn’t find the exact color until I saw J. Crew’s Quilted Excursion Vest in Irish Moss. I’ve been a fan of their vests since the beginning of time and this year they continued my love affair. The Excursion Vest comes in seven colors {you’ll want them all} and also in petite sizes. I’m wearing an x-small {regular} and it gives me just enough room to layer with thin cotton tops like this one or with chunky sweaters too. It’s down filled and machine washable {amazing right?!} but just hang to dry. I paired my look with Madewell’s High Riser Denim {my new favorite jean} and these amazing ankle booties {also from J. Crew, two colors} which I’ll be repeating all season. Get my vest and the booties at 25% off with code SHOPFALL {here and here} plus, shop my look and see other excursion vests I’m loving below!

Linen Love

Lilly Pulitzer / Pant: J. Crew / Wedges: Lilly Pulitzer / Watch: Michele 

Bangles: Bourbon & Boweties

The Seaside Pant from J. Crew might be the most comfortable thing I’ve worn in a long time. They have an elastic waist and a slight crop leg making it easy to transition from day to night {I’ve styled mine both ways so you can see the difference} and they’re made of a linen blend {my favorite} that is perfect for the summer heat! They come in five colors and two sequins prints, this pair is on sale for less than $40 with an additional 40% off with code GOSHOPPING
