Tail-gating in Tennessee is kind of a big deal. Whether you are pre-gaming from your backyard, inviting friends over to watch the game, or spending your Saturday at your reserved spot on campus; prep and planning is a must. That’s where McAlister’s Deli comes in. I have really never been more impressed than I was when picking up my order for last weekend’s tailgate.
As I’m sure you know, Friday is the first day of fall. Here in Tennessee we are sitting at almost 90 degrees on the daily, so it sure doesn’t feel like it. I’ve been absolutely loving adding some interest on either top or bottom, so I can at least feel like fall is on the way.
It actually feels a bit like fall around here. Finally! So today I wanted to share some fall outfit inspiration. Lightweight sweaters like this one are amazing for this time of year because they give the overall feel of a true sweater without the bulk and weight! This color is MAJOR for the season too. For jeans, I’ve been on a distressed only kick and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I’m also really loving ankle length jeans (perfect for my 5’4″ frame and for booties). These jeans will go with everything and are under $60! I’ve talked volumes about this brand and I am still totally obsessed! They wear so well and you cannot beat the price.
Closet clean-outs can be tricky. If you wait too long to get to them… it gets much worse. Today I’m talking you through my process: how I purge, where the items go, and the best way to re-sell your unwanted items. I get questions about this pretty regularly and I’m excited to share with you. Cleaning out your closet will not only make the space look prettier, but getting ready in the morning gets much easier too!
Okay ya’ll, let’s talk workwear. I have always struggled in this department because I love my fun, colorful, and bright wardrobe… but the 9-5 dress code doesn’t always allow me to use my favorite pieces. For that reason, I’ve had to learn to play around with accessories. Adding some fun with your shoes or a hat (if you can swing that) can really bring life to an otherwise boring outfit.
I touched on this last night on instagram, but I feel a little icky sometimes when there are major things going on in the world and I’m over here talking about clothes and makeup. It doesn’t feel right. I also struggle with feeling like I can’t do anything to help. Houston is such a mess right now. So many displaced from there homes. . . they’ve lost everything. It brings back memories of last fall with the wildfires that happened about 45 minutes from us in Gatlinburg.
