Easy Blue Dress for Fall

If you live in the South, you know how crazy the weather can be this time of year. Its October, so I automatically think I should be wearing scarfs and boots!

Unfortunately, that is not life in South Carolina so we have to work on outfits that transition from summer to fall.

This easy (but last season) blue dress from Express is so light weight, but the colors and bell sleeves allow it to work now that the weather is slightly cooler.

I love taking jewel tone dresses from the summer and pairing them with booties for a fall look. Adding a darker lipstick or even a fringe purse or light weight scarf can change your summer staple to a fall must-have!

Here are a few of my favorite fall dresses right now: Nordstrom (less than $60)  Old Navy (less than $40)  Express – LOVE THIS ONE (On sale, less than $40)

I don’t have anything exciting going on this week but sometimes it is nice to have a low-key week planned!

PS. Anyone notice the Chris E. we found on the wall?! Thought it was cute since my fiance is Chris E. as well! 🙂

Fall is in the Air


So, Hurricane Matthew is all we are hearing about right now and while it is sure to cause serious damage along the coast, there is a chance Myrtle Beach may only get heavy rain and strong winds. I am hoping that is the case, but we shall see!

Despite the doom and gloom hanging around because of the storm, the weather has felt amazing this week! Almost like, gasp, fall! For those of you in the South, you know what I’m talking about. The temperatures are finally breaking a bit from the summer months and for me, I am so glad I can break out my booties and fall hats.

I got the red dress above (1 State) from Belk and decided after this photo shoot that it wasn’t for me. While super comfy and having a key hole in the back, it just was not figure flattering for my shape. I think someone with very slim arms and a smaller frame could pull off this full, flowing dress.

As you can see I also broke out my fringe booties from last season and my Old Navy floppy hat. Both of which are still very much in style this season! I actually just ordered two more pairs of booties from Sole Society and they are BOMB! Can’t wait to share them with you all!

And although I may be stuck in pj’s all weekend due to the storm, I plan to catch up on The Walking Dead (I’m on season 2), read some, and relax. What are your plans for the weekend?!
