Outfit Post: Buffalo Plaid

This outfit has been getting all the reps lately. Wore it to the Louisville vs. FSU game (with a red vest in an attempt to try and be a supportive wife), wore it again to run errands and then switched out this button-down for a blue and white one for last weekend’s Kentucky game (win or lose, we still booze).

Mostly I just love that this pair of jeans stays put. Seems a little silly but the fact that I don’t have to mess with them whenever you sit down/stand-up is a blessing from above (okay I know that’s a little over dramatic). Seriously though, when it comes to getting dressed with one kid asking you the same question a million times (usually involves turning on a show) and an infant to keep up with – you stick with what works. Right now, this is it.

Oh and if you’re wondering why I look like a wet dog in the pictures below – it started raining right as I struck a pose. Yup, that’s the kind of luck I’ve got lately. No complaints here though…. just a gal in need of better timing and an umbrella!

p.s. – Big thanks to Andrew – the man behind the lens of my pal Grace’s blog, A Southern Drawl – for helping a gal out this week when I needed to snap some pics on the fly. Even bigger thanks to him for not bailing when the weather took a turn for the worst!

Outfit Post: I Love My … Suede Booties

Over the last month during my challenge to shop my own closet, I realized that I have a few (or maybe a lot of) favorites that I consistently turn to when I’m in need of that finishing touch. I also heard from some of my pals that read the blog {insert hand waving emojithanks guys!} that they liked seeing how I re-wore things in a different way.

So I thought I’d do a little series, which is a total copy of People StyleWatch’s series ‘I Really Love My…’ , showcasing my favorites and how I wore them – all in one place. Thus saving you from the spiral of having to click all the ‘seen before here’ links.

First up are these suede booties I scored at least one, maybe two years ago from LOFT. I know they were 40% off (score) and I’m know I’ve gotten WAY more than my fair share of wear out of them. They are a combo of all things that are good: great heel, perfect color, not too high and super comfortable.

They work well with dresses (wore them this weekend with this dress to a party) but are equally great with jeans and a tee. I’ve found some similar pairs/styles that fit the bill below in case you’re looking for your own pair of boots to go into heavy rotation this fall/winter.

Shopping: Your Fall Coat Collection

Yesterday it was 80 degrees here. Here is not Florida so this is really cramping my fall style. It’s not cramping my fall shopping style though.

As soon as the clock strikes November 1 (no shopping in October), I’m hitting purchase on a new coat. I like to usher one oldie out and welcome a fresh new face (and yes, by face I mean a garment of clothing) each season and this year I’ve whittled down my options.

I keep returning to these three styles for this year’s addition: pale pink, plaid and all-weather parkas. Obviously I’m looking for something versatile (gotta wear it over all the things) and functional (nothing too tight, too weird, too bulky).

I’ve narrowed down my options and now it’s just a waiting game. The good news is that a lot of these options are crazy affordable (wanted to include this pretty from Old Navy but the image wouldn’t load. just check it out cause it is crazy cute and super affordable) and will last way past this winter.
