Buying lately

I haven't shared flat lays lately nor have I shared recent purchases lately. I've been trying to flay lay things I buy as soon as I get them because it helps remind me that I have them and I need to wear them! Plus, it's a good way for me to immediately share what I've bought on Instagram even if I do not wear the pieces right away. That point is especially valid right now since the weather won't make up its mind about summer or fall temps! A lot of the things I have been buying are certainly more appropriate for fall than for summer, though a lot of these pieces are great to help during this odd transition. Since I'm mixing and matching new pieces with existing stuff in my closet, I'm only linking to items that are still available. Let's get started!

Inspired by

Express all over lace tee, Ann Taylor trench dress
Sunnies: Tom Ford "Iris" | Trench vest: Ann Taylor (old) (option) | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs "Helena" (option) | Top: ExpressBottoms: Express (similar) | Sandals: BP

Do you guys follow Jennifer from Haute off the Rack? I don't remember how I first came across her, but she is hands down one of my favorite "mega" bloggers that I follow. Her outfits are relatable, her photos are gorgeous, and her personality is so much fun. I would so be her BFF in real life (in a non-creepy, non-single white female kind of way of course.) Anyway, she posted this outfit on Instagram last week and I immediately screenshot it. It's perfectly effortless and I knew I wanted to re-create it.

White after Labor Day

J.Crew eyelet v-neck tee shirt, Express white jean legging, Madewell Marie sandal, Clare V foldover clutch
Sunnies: TOMS | Earrings: Kendra Scott "Addie"Necklace: Kendra Scott "Kiri" | Clutch: Clare V (animal print option here) | Top: JCrew | Bracelet: Kendra Scott "Candice"Bottoms: Express (option) | Booties: Madewell "Marie" (super similar option here)

When it comes to fashion, I definitely don't believe there are rules. I have never abided by the "no white after Labor Day" rule, for example. I'm not sure how I would be able to survive without my white skinnies year round! It's like plain white tees - they go with ALLTHETHINGS! I think as long as you have fit and proportion right, you can basically wear what makes you happy regardless of what others may say or do!

September Fabletics

September Fabletics "Greer" outfit, "Petal" tank and "Salar" capri

I always look forward to the first of the month because that means I get another new outfit from Fabletics! Ok, so granted, I could technically shop the website any time I want, but the fact that I get the discount at the first of the month certainly helps me contain my urge to shop. Though, I've definitely been guilty of buying things later in the month just because… I haven't shared my picks lately, so here is what I selected for September!

Moto + camo and a 6K

Express minus the leather moto jacket, Evereve Camo dress, Vince Camuto Kathleen booties
Outfit details--- Sunnies: TOMS | Earrings: Francesca's | Necklace: Kendra Scott "Phara" (gifted) | Bag: Charming Charlie (c/o) (non stud option here) | Jacket: Express | Dress: EvereveBooties: Vince Camuto ---

Moto details and camo are two things I always crave, especially for fall! When I stumbled upon this dress a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't stop thinking about it! It's the perfect camo print, and although I don't normally go for swing dresses because they aren't the most flattering on me, I still had to add this to my closet! I knew it would be the perfect base layer in the cooler months and I really loved the way it looked under a jacket, especially this moto one! I have a feeling that I will be shopping Evereve more often!

Random roundup

It's Friday so that means I have a handful of random outfit selfies to share with you! It's been a doozy these last couple of weeks but I'm happy that the weekend is here and I'm ready to rest and recoup. But first, the selfies.

The Beachwaver: How it works

Other products referenced: Teasing Brush (mine came from my salon, this is similar) | Dry Shampoo: Herbal Essences | Alligator clips: Sephora | Hairspray: TRESemme

I first mentioned the Beachwaver in my post about the Maplewood Beauty Bar. Amanda used it on my hair for my blow out and I was convinced I needed one of my own! Can anyone really have too many curling irons? This one is special though.
