fall walks with sorel

This time of year is really my favorite. The temperatures start to drop, although not too much, and the leaves start to change color. There's an excitement in the air around homecoming games, apple picking and several types of fall activities. One of my favorite things to do is go on evening walks with Matthew. We both get home, change into some comfortable clothes and trek out with Ginger usually in tow. I love the dimming light, the scattered leaves and the rustic smell that fills the air. When taking our walks I'll usually pair jeans with a sweater and a stylish yet functional pair of boots.  The SOREL Slimshortie bootie is beautifully made and they have an iconic fall look to them. I'm so excited to wear them more this fall with tights and cozy socks!

There's a duality of function and style that I love with SOREL boots. I've long admired their classic Joan of Arctic style but since I don't live in, or travel to, the snow I couldn't justify the purchase. These short boots are perfect for me though. They have a combo of waterproof leather, felt and material that will keep me dry during the rain and the Western-inspired look is super stylish for fall. I know I'll get a lot of use out of these guys!

the friday five

The Friday Five: spotted dress, pink faux leather moto jacket, hinged collar necklace, Vince Brigham booties, Prada Saffiano Tote in blush via M Loves M @marmar

Black and white is a classic combo and whether it's stripes, polka dots, or an animal print, I'm all about it! This SPOTTED DRESS with a ruffle hem is so cute and I love how you can add color to really make it stand out!

I'm totally a pink girl, through and through. The color makes me happy so I love wearing it. This PINK FAUX LEATHER MOTO JACKET is so cute and would look great with a simple shift dress or even jeans and a tee. It would definitely turn some heads, don't you think? Also, it's under $100!!

I love minimalist jewelry. It's simple yet bold and makes a unique statement. This GOLD HINGED CHOKER would look great with a basic tee or a black dress. It's one of those pieces you could wear day or night.

I am obsessed with these VINCE BRIGHAM BOOTIES! My friend Rachel has them in black and they look amazing on her. I think the graphite gray color is amazing though and would go with everything this fall!

Last night I went to the mall to do some browsing and had to stop into Prada. Prada makes some of the most beautiful bags that are incredibly well made and extremely classic. I tried on this blue one but one look at this beautiful PRADA SAFFIANO SMALL GARDENER'S TOTE BAG IN BLUSH/CAMMEO and I was in love! It has a feminine and polished look and I would wear it all the time. I'm going to save up and hopefully get it soon!! It might take a little convincing from the hubby but I think I can do it!

Happy Friday everyone!



striped top and gaucho pants on M Loves M @marmar {click through for more photos and product info}
I wore this outfit for my first day of New York Fashion Week. Everyone kept on saying they loved my skirt but wanna know a secret?? It's actually pants..gaucho pants! What do you guys think of this trend? These ones are kind of interesting because you really can't tell their pants unless I walk and even then I feel like I need to have a wider stance. They're super comfortable though and I think these are a great option if you're not totally sure how you feel about the idea. You can definitely get away with it looking like a skirt if you wanted! I paired it with this striped top, a pair of two-tone booties, and a black hat. You guys will be proud of me because I've accumulated quite a hat collection for fall. Totally on my way to becoming a hat person! haha!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Do you have any fun plans? Tonight Matthew and I are going to a GAP party and tomorrow no plans yet. Sunday I'll be up bright and early volunteering for the Ovarian Cancer Coalition's annual walk/run. I've been working with them for the last ten years so it's fun to be a part of their big annual event. Have a great one you guys and check back later for the Friday 5
