Neutral Blazer

Shop the Look: 

Blazer J Crew via Thred Up, Similar  // Cami LOFT // Denim Leggings LOFT // 
Ankle Boots (old) Amazon , Similar // Necklace Similar 

One super easy look for fall is a blazer with a blouse type camisole.  That is probably not the right terminology (ha),  but basically, a cami that is a poly blend as opposed to a cotton tee or tank.  Of course, I love a good cotton tee, but cotton tends to cling on me in all the wrong places.  Not to mention, these LOFT camisoles, look a little more dressed up than your average tee.   
Here is another blazer and cami look I wore last fall.  I have purchased both these blazers at consignment shops because I have noticed they tend to keep their shape and don't really go out of style.   I also linked a few more blazers below since mine is old.  I especially love the velvet blush camisole paired with the burgundy blazer.  I am trying not to shop anymore though until spring so maybe next year!  

As much as I enjoy fashion, I often feel silly writing about it since it is such a small part of my life and obviously not very important.  Especially as women, I feel God puts it on our hearts to be searching for and surrounding ourselves with beauty - from breathtaking sunsets during a stressful drive home to tender moments between loved ones amidst a day of chaos.  I recently came across this touching article where she very eloquently states the importance of recognizing and appreciating those beautiful moments as gifts.  

Thanks for reading!!

Swing Dress & Kimono

I love the Lou & Grey line from LOFT and when it occasionally goes on sale now for 50% off, I always try to pick up a basic piece.  This "suede dress" is soo soft and the color is perfect for fall.  I plan on pairing it with some deep purple or camel layers as it gets colder.  Swing dresses are great, but I rarely wear them alone.  For my body type, I feel I need to add a jacket or cardigan to add more shape to the look.   So basically, you may want to try it with some layers before you give up on it!

Seamed Maxi

I've been a little absent on here lately for two reasons.  One, we have started a new year in our homeschool routine and two, my baby has started eating/throwing solid foods so it has been a little pointless to throw on anything other than a T-shirt and jeans in the morning.  Now that we have kind of discovered a flow to our day, I hope to be posting again because I really do enjoy it!

Poolside Maxi

I know summer has officially ended,  but temperatures here are still pretending like it's still if full force.  Now, since retailers are making room for fall inventory, it is a great time to stock up on any basics you need for summer.  A pretty summer maxi is a great addition to your wardrobe and can be worn to Church, picnics or festivals.  I paired it with a basic camisole and an olive colored cardigan to make it look a little more appropriate for fall.   Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Tie Shoulder Sweater

It has cooled down a little bit here in the midwest, so it was perfect weather for this cold shoulder sweater I purchased at LOFT at the beginning of the summer.  This sweater was a final sale item and only a size Large was available so it is a little big on me.  I had been saving it to wear for some kind of special occasion, but then I realized that I really like it so why don't I just wear it??  Does anyone else do that?   I feel like I do that way more often than I should.  Anyway, love these flowy shorts too.  I can't stand it when shorts ride up or stick to your legs, so I rarely wear them, but these are great!

Best Dress

I purchased this dress on a whim last year during my pregnancy and I have worn it SO much.  It is lightweight and easy to wear for all seasons.  I wore it three ways here and have worn it numerous times as well.  If I am not wearing a cardigan with it, I definitely need a bandeau underneath, but other than that it is perfect!

Bright Yellow

I have been pretty absent here lately.   Unfortunately, my husband's sweet Grandma passed away, so we made an unexpected trip to MI over the Fourth of July holiday.  She was married to my husband's grandfather for 61 years!  Such a beautiful testament to the sanctity of marriage and commitment.  She took such good care of her husband and family and was constantly making sure everyone was well fed and happy.  Right before she passed, we also adopted a puppy!  He has brought a lot of joy (and a lot more chaos) to our family, and it was really comforting for the girls to have him as they dealt with yet another funeral (both my husband's parents passed away last year).  We have a few traditions we have instilled to try and keep their memories alive, but I would love to hear any of your ideas as well.
