Fall Dress & Suede Booties

Fall in the Ozarks means that one day it's 99 degrees out and so humid that you can barely breath and the next day it's 70 degrees and rainy.  You can only imagine how full my closet is right now, as I've pulled out my fall necessities but need to keep my summer attire available for those sweltering days.  It can be so frustrating, but hey,  I can drown my sorrows in a Pumpkin Spice beverage, right? ha!

My favorite style trend this fall is bell sleeves.  Hello 70's style! The tassels are a summer trend that looks like it's sticking around for fall.  The lightweight fabric, makes this a great transition piece for the fall and for winter, you can pair it with a cute pair of leggings, or some over the knee boots and a faux fur vest.  How cute would that be?  I love the muted navy, green and red colors in this dress.  It just screams fall.  You could easily pair it with some nude heals, dark brown boots, or even some cute ballet style slippers.  I could go on and on; this dress is fantastic.

The suede booties I choose for this look are Dolce Vita. I picked up this amazing buy last year at Nordstroms while in Chicago visiting my son.  The 3' wedge heel is comfortable but keeps you looking stylish. Taupe is neutral and can go with just about any outfit.  Comfort is just as important as style, and fortunately, these booties are both.

To me, fall is all about hot drinks, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin anything.  It's my favorite season, for sure. In the Ozarks, we are all about the Fall Festivals and craft shows. I love strolling around, with a hot cocoa, hand in hand with the hubs, checking out the newest artists in the area.  What are your favorite things about fall?

Transitioning to Fall

It's that crazy time of the year again, when all the fall fashion is on display at every store and online, but it's still 90 plus degrees outside.  If you are at all like me, you are tired of your summer clothes, but know that you'll have a heat stroke if you wear your fall clothing items.  The day that I did this quick, and I mean QUICK, photo shoot, it was in the mid-90's, but I wanted to showcase how you can take something like black jeans, and pair it with an off the shoulder top to slowly transition into a fall look.  Add a cute pair of peep-toe booties and you're ready for a night on the town or an air conditioned mall trip!

This black and white blouse has three quarter length sleeves, but is lightweight and a bit off shoulder.  I bought this in April and i haven't quit wearing it all summer.  Who knew being sexy could also be so comfortable?!

The Black Jeggings from Torrid are honestly, some of the best jeggings I've ever owned! Naturally, I had to get the grey ones too. 

I love a good cross body bag, and this Kate Spade purse is a perfect addition to this outfit.  It has a zipper pouch the full length of the purse; which is great to keep important items, like money, cards, etc.  I absolutely love taking this purse on trips because it's compact, adorable and holds my iPhone 6 Plus (which we all know can be a challenge with small bags).

Peep-toe Booties are so cute and really bring the whole outfit together.  With close to a 3in mid-heel, these shoes were a fantastic buy. I've worn them to Bar-B-Ques and fancy date nights with my husband. If I had a dollar every time someone asked me where I got these shoes, I'd buy a pair for all of my girlfriends.
