Sweatshirt Dress is a MUST for Fall

Hey babes! Sorry for the MIA the rest of last week. We had some yard work done and they happen to cut our internet cable too. Technicians came over the weekend to repair our wires. We are a streaming household (we cut cable over 4 years ago!) so a few days without internet is both challenging and refreshing!

One of the fall trends for 2017 that I am loving is the sweatshirt dress! Comfy, cute and easy to dress up or down. They are a must have for early fall weather! Although not this past weekend or upcoming week here. It has been pushing mid-80’s. Summer is back for one last party!

I purchased my sweatshirt dress back in the winter from the girls at Heart Mercantile in the Oregon District. Technically, I think it was supposed to be a tunic but I’m so short that it fits as a dress. I love that it’s soft and has pockets. It’s super cute with booties, over the knee boots or with tennis as I’m wearing here.

My bag is also from Heart. I seriously cannot go into that store without picking up a little something! I have linked up a few other sweatshirt dresses that are just way too cute. Lots of styles from simple like mine, hooded, one shoulder, ruffled or even super edgy like in faux leather!

Speaking of tennis- the Adidas pair wearing in these photos are pretty much the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Seriously, run out and buy yourself a pair. Your feet will thank me!

Bell Sleeves and Wide Legs

Sometimes you need to throw caution to the wind, pair a few trends and see how they turn out. But isn’t that what makes fashion and styling fun? I think so!

Being that I am barely over five feet tall wide leg pants is a tricky look for me to pull off. I always need to wear tall heels to allow that wide leg to flow. Pairing wide leg pants with a (slight) bell sleeve top is a bold move for me. I was not sure how this would look but I am loving the combo! It works because of my shirt is tucked in creating some definition to my small frame.

I purchased both my top and pants from Kohl’s last month on mega clearance- both items marked under $10! Throw some Kohl’s cash on top of that and this outfit was basically free! Besides my shoes (those olive booties again) I was not able to find any of my exact outfit details to link up for you gals but make sure to check out the items I put in the product widget. I found a lot of great dups so you can create a similar look!

What’s a trend you’d love to mix even if it is outside your comfort zone?

Sunflowers and Gingham

Pairing a perfect early fall activity with an end of summer classic style! Keep reading to find out more!

There is this amazing sunflower field in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My husband and I have lived in Dayton for almost 8 years and admittedly this was our first time visiting.

The field is gorgeous! However I had no idea what to expect visiting a sunflower field. There are tons of bees! Thankfully the little terrors are drunk on pollen and could care less about us moving through the field. I did not expect the flowers to be so tall or itchy either. My sweet four year old plowed through rows taller than him. Such a trooper!

The problem with tall flowers is it makes it impossible for this novice blogger to take a full outfit shot in the field. I really am not sure what I was thinking? Totally should have Pinterest that idea first. I took a picture of my shoes thinking maybe it would help visualize the look. Probably does not but maybe? Just go with it! The flowers are too pretty not to share so I’m posting anyway.

I wore a gingham button up I purchased years ago from Kohl’s with my favorite jeans ev-er. I am so beyond excited to fit back into my favorite AG jeans since baby girl was born! {happy dance} I pulled on my new obessisson: these olive peep toe booties. Also probably not the best choice to wear heels to march through a sunflower field. All things I am taking note for next year!
