golden goose.

these golden goose sneakers were one of my proudest poshmark finds last year. they’re the most unique item in my closet and surprisingly they go with everything.

yes, i teach preschool, and yes i wear expensive italian sneakers to work. its the most adventurous thing i do these days ūüėČ

the shirt everyone has this fall.

 

i gave into the fall cliche with the tractors and the leaves but hey, if it works it works you know?

90% of the bloggers i follow have this shirt, and once i bought it, i understood why. its a bit heavier than your standard knit, but its not quite as thick as a sweater, which makes it perfect for this time of year when its chilly in the mornings and warmer in the afternoons.

details: free people shirt, jeans, booties

 

tassle dress.

i ordered this dress randomly off the old navy website without putting much thought into it past that the cut and the colors would be good for fall transition. little did i know that is a literal actual DREAM. i don’t know what they did making this dress, but it is SO SOFT. apparently i’m not the only one that caught on that this little number has a lot to give, because i can’t find it on the old navy website anymore? maybe if you’re lucky you can search one out in stores? if you do, pounce on it because i promise its worth the thirty bucks.

ivy park.

i leave for the cute town of lagrange, georgia tomorrow for my bestie and queen of the bey hive’s wedding weekend, and these shorts are obviously in my suitcase.

i’m ashamed to admit that i’m not really a beyonce fan, but i SURE did jump on this ivy park bandwagon earlier this summer. when i looked through the collection at nordstrom, i wanted it all. its the epitome of athleisure, perfect for the gym slash perfect for everything else.

breckenridge.

 

i took a short trip to denver last week to visit my friends sarah and ryan and their cutie kids, liam and jude who were back in the U.S. from northern ireland on “holiday” (to use the proper U.K. terminology) while they got some visa issues worked out.

ANYWAYS, i’ve been to denver twice before to visit, but this was the first visit that we’ve taken a trip up to breckenridge and OH MY GOODNESS i have never seen anything more beautiful. i didn’t plan on taking any outfit photos during my trip, but the town of breckenridge was the perfect backdrop. this might not be my cutest outfit i’ve ever worn, but it was functional for walking around town and staying warm because it was ACTUALLY fall there. amazing.

fall florals.

i love everything about this dress. the pattern, the sleeves, the cut, just everything. i also love how easy it is to pair with booties for a fancier occasion, or sneakers for everything else in life (obviously my favorite option). i wore the dress/sneaker option for a night of tacos and margaritas for my friends birthday and it was the perfect level of cute and comfort for hiding the inevitable guacamole food baby.

details: dress, adidas superstars, ray bans

bells and boots.

because its still so warm here in nashville, i’m transitioning to fall with darker colors, and nothing says “fall” like mustard yellow. my hippy soul also loves these bell sleeves. so flowy and perfect.

in my carry-on.

i leave first thing tomorrow morning for a fun last minute trip (thank you cheap southwest flights and a very nice boss for the last minute days off), so i thought that i would share the things that i pack in my carry on.

let me preface this post by saying that i travelled A LOT with my last job and i learned how to prioritize the things i needed for all the plane rides. i definitely don’t think that i have carry on packing down to a science for the general public, i just have it down to a science for ME. i also fully believe in checking a bag because this girl needs options and full size beauty products (you know, in case of a mud fight or the apocalypse or other really realistic scenarios). ¬†so, without further ado, the things in my carry on…

1.) the bag: i bought this free people bag¬†last fall and it is probably the smartest thing i’ve ever purchased for travel/life in general. it holds so many things, goes with everything, and the inner pouch can even be taken out and used as an easy clutch. trust me, you need this bag.

2.) iPad/headphones: i would love to say that i use plane rides to be super productive or read or do something semi intelligent, but nope. i take full advantage of southwest’s free satellite tv and use any air time to watch bravo and hgtv. if for some (truly unfortunate) reason the southwest wifi is not working, i always have tv shows loaded on to my iPad as back up. tomorrow i actually plan on watching/finishing downton abbey since its september and i’ve yet to finish the series. oops. these headphones¬†are both¬†cute and affordable, and get the noise cancelling job done.

3.) wallet: this one is obvious. since i’m not superwoman and i don’t pack snacks for my flights, i stock up on over priced airport treats. this kate spade glitter wallet is one of my proudest outlet finds. while in florida earlier this year, i ended up scoring this wallet for $25 during a major outlet sale. it holds SO MUCH and the subtle glitter actually goes with nearly everything. i love it so much. this is the same wallet, just a different print. its totally worth the investment.

4. passport: another obvious one. i love having a passport case to throw all my important documents in for easy access.

5. notebook/pen: i’m not great at keeping a planner, but i love making lists and it makes me feel like a real grown up having a cute notebook and pen available to jot down random thoughts.

6. lotion, chapstick, and face mist: everyone knows recirculated plane air makes your skin as dry as the desert from the moment of take off. i like having all of these things on hand to help my skin keep its moisture and to keep me from looking like a wrinkly old bag.

7. tide to go pen: i always without fail spill my coffee on myself on plane rides. i actually should travel with 15 of these at minimum.

8. refreshing wipes/deodorant: while everyone else on the planet freezes on airplanes, i for some reason sweat profusely. these wipes are wonderful for feeling fresh after a long plane ride, and deodorant is a no brainer.

9.) advil: i always get the WORST headaches on airplanes. no matter how many times i’ve flown, my body just never gets used to the pressure and altitude changes and all of those fun things (insert eye roll emoji).

get ready for a lot of long sleeves/cut off combos because it’s my FAVORITE outfit during transitional months. every year around this time i just have a really hard time letting go of my cut offs so i hang on as long as possible. also, how great is this free people shirt? i love a good (and classy) open back top

another day, another dress.

 

i stocked up on dresses like these this summer in a feeble attempt to stay cool and not melt, and it was approximately 267 degrees when we shot these photos. hopefully, maybe, fall will be here soon?
