Tan and grey

Sunnies: TOMS | Scarf: Charming Charlie | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (option, smaller option here) | Jacket: Express (similar) | Sweater: Gap (option) | Bottoms: Gap (option) | Boots: Sole Society "Calypso" (limited sizes)

I have been looking for a flat pair of suede, over-the-knee boots. I saw a sponsored post with these boots on Instagram and I was intrigued! When I saw that they were under $130, I was basically sold! That's a really good price for quality, over the knee boots, and considering how much I loved my Sole Society boots from last year, I knew I would fall in love with these just as hard, and I was right!

Somehow, some way it is the last Wednesday of October, which means that it is time once again to link up with MelShay, and Sheaffer for What's up Wednesday! All that means to you as a reader is that you get to read about a bunch of life randoms that I may not otherwise share on the blog. Not for any reason other than I don't really think about it! You can always follow me on Snapchat (carylee07) if you want the latest randoms! I'm only picking a handful of the questions to answer for the sake of time, but let's get started!

Just Porter: professional computer backpack

Just Porter Hazen Professional Computer Backpack

As you guys know, I just started my new journey to become Pilates certified. It is no joke like going back to college! Curriculum, lectures, internship logs, and of course text books. I made a joke on Snapchat when my books arrived that I wondered if I should go out and buy myself a new Jansport. (I used to ROCK my red one back in the day!) Well, the very next morning, I got an email from Just Porter asking if they could send me a backpack in exchange for an honest review. Is this Big Brother watching me, or is this just a happy coincidence? I will go with the latter! I had never heard of the brand before, so the first thing I did was check out their products, read their reviews, and then google videos.

The slouchy sweater

Express "lace-up high-lo sweater", Dolce Vita over the knee boots, white jeans for fall
Outfit details--- Sunnies: Quay "High Key" | Earrings: Kendra Scott "Danielle"Sweater: Express "lace-up high-lo sweater" | Bag: Chanel | Bottoms: American Eagle | Boots: Dolce Vita (this season's version, cheaper option---

Ok, I promise this is the last lace-up anything I will buy in awhile! Promise! Can you blame me though? I have been craving slouchy sweaters as well, so the fact that this had the lace up detail also was a no brainer. To be honest, when I first tried it on in store, I thought it was too boxy and I passed on it. But then I kept thinking about it. And thinking about it. And thinking about it. So I finally ordered it. And now I love it. Weird how this happens!

Naturalizer Best Friends and Family Social

Naturalizer "Fortunate" fringe bootie, #shoesquadgoals

Happy Friday eve!! I wanted to take some time to tell you about the Naturalizer event I attended a couple of weeks ago! Do you remember the last Naturalizer event I went to? No? You can catch yourself up here. That one was so much fun and the boots that came home with me from that event are STILL one of my all time favorite pairs and it's been two years! If you missed out on those then, you're in luck because you can find them on Amazon in a plethora of sizes and colors here! But let's fast forward to the present, shall we?

The suede moto jacket

Taupe suede moto jacket, striped cami, olive jeans outfit
Outfit details-- Sunnies: TOMS | Jacket: Capulet (c/o Shopbop) (budget option) | Necklace: Sole Society | Cami: Express (similar) | Bag: Chloe "Marcie" | Bottoms: American Eagle | Shoes: Joe's (similar---

Did you guys shop the Shopbop sale last week? I had a couple of certificates that I've been saving up just for the sale. I had a couple of pairs of shoes and a bag picked out but then I saw this jacket and I was hooked! I've been wanting a suede, taupe colored moto jacket and I loved that this one had a cropped fit to it. I don't like for my moto jackets to look sloppy when worn unzipped, so the fit of this one was perfect! I was able to snag it for only $70 after the sale discount and my certificates. It's quite a splurge at full price, so can I interest you in this LC Lauren Conrad version? Because it's really good! The wine color might have to come home with me!
