Red Plaid + Hair Tutorial

How about this…  I promise next week, I will add a little something more than boots and skirts?!  Here we go again, right?!  I surely have been down this road before!  It’s just that it is BOOT SEASON and because I love tall boots more than I should, I feel the need to wear them as often as possible.

Loving all the plaids out there right now and because there are so many patterns, colors, sizes, prints…it’s easy to work them all into the fall rotation.  This black and red print has so much potential, I can assure you it will be popping up here and there in the coming months.  It’s soft, not too think – yet warm, and while I played up the black here today, I can’t wait to wear it under a cozy ivory cardigan or even a light tan.

Be sure to check my Instagram and Facebook pages later this morning because I have another fun coming your way in just a little bit!

TGIT, friends, TGIT…

Big day, friends, big day!  I finally made a video showing you how I curl my hair for my blog posts and I posted it over at The Shopping Mama!  I would love for you to head on over and check it out!  Let us know what ya think, too!

Finally…a little fun shopping before I go!  Here’s what I’m loving’…  BB Dakota has the cutest stuff, always, and it’s at a price point everyone can appreciate.  I have their leather shorts and let me tell you, they are still one of my favorites in the closet.

The World of Michael Kors at Macy’s

About a week or so ago, there was a new mall that opened up here in Las Vegas so of course my girlfriends and I were there bright and early for it’s grand opening.  I swear, there’s nothing better than a brand new store and being there on opening day.  Whew, everything so perfectly in place, I didn’t want to leave.

If you caught my post from this morning, you would know I am having a major moment with Michael Kors.  I mean, I’ve always loved his watches and right now, I’m all about the clothes and the shoes (…and bags, and jewelry)!

Everything in their new store looked so pretty so when I got home, I scoured the internet for my favorites so I could share them all with you.  As always, I made like a mile long shopping list (more like “wish” list) in my online cart and here’s what made the cut.  What?!  Christmas is just around the corner, right?!

Who else is a big MK fan?  What’s your favorite things to shop from his line?  I’m kind of IN LOVE with this hooded leather jacket…that’s on sale…and on promo.  #yesplease

Take a look at all the fun things I found down below!

Few things are certain in this world and one of them is my love, love, love for some fabulous boots.  I mean, this we know.  I love the dark, rich brown suede here and I especially love their slouch factor.  They cover my knees just about right and are insanely comfortable around my legs.  I know I gripe a little (or, a lot…) about the temps in Vegas but come to think of it, being able to wear these sweet boots with some flirty skirts might be hard to give up when it finally does cool down!  Boots and skirts on repeat, please.

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen my box pleat ivory skirt and friends, today isn’t the last.  This skirt is one of my favorites this season.  It’s swingy, I love the pleats, it’s flirty, and it’s a soft and lightweight wool that’s just perfect for fall.

Finally, this sweater is so similar to the tippi, however, I am loving the long sleeves where as the tippi is three quarter.  Small, but important details, folks.

Thanks for visiting me again today!

I saw these incredible boots on the gorgeous Julia from Gal Meets Glam just recently and, well, we all know what happened after that…  Such incredible style and taste, don’t you agree?  Who else do you love to follow?  

While this might be completely random, the other day I shared on Instagram that I found PJ pants for 10 whole dollars at Target.  That’s right, 10 bucks.  Just in case you missed that sweet deal in your store, they have it going online and, well, let’s just saw I felt comfortable around 5 new pairs for pants to lounge around my house in this fall.  Super comfortable, not too thick, and pretty cute!

Fall Comfort + A Must Have Skirt!

Last week, when I was planning some outfits to share, I promised myself that I would try and get through the week without wearing a quilted vest.  #impossible

Here’s the problem – I’m in the phase where I’m so excited there’s a tiny chill in the air (you know, between the hours of 8 pm and 8 am, Vegas style) and I just want to bring back all my fall essentials! They make me happy – yes, a vest – makes me happy!  This NE Girl gets overly nostalgic when signs of my favorite time of year finally start to show up and I just grab what comforts me the most.  Quilted vests, plaids, boots, terribly unoriginal but I could care less.  These things are my love language.

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

Do you see this plaid skirt?  Do you see it?  Order it now – because it’s about to be gone.  Promise.  It’s already backordered.  I may have called Banana about 4-5 times a week of the past month asking where is was online after I caught a preview.  It’s cool – I own my crazy.  Did you order it yet?  #yourewelcome

A little bit of lace in my life has never, ever been a bad thing.  It’s delicate and feminine to the millionth degree and I couldn’t love it more if I tried.  I couldn’t resist the urge to give this pretty little top the girly treatment it deserves so this fun and flirty white, box pleat skirt was a great compliment.  However, I must say, the back up option I had in mind was a pair of my favorite distressed skinny jeans with a fun heel, like some leopard stilettos.  Unexpected twists give so many things in my closet extra life, I think.  So many more options for wear, which I love.

Have a great Monday, everyone!  Another weekend, come and gone, just like that…
