Black on Black - Over the Knee Boots

Steve Madden 'Gorgeous' Over the Knee Boots
Fieldcrest Wood Watch - Zebrawood and Maple

Stitch Fix Fringe Bag

Black Over the Knee Boots, similar HERE // Shoulder Cutout Top // Versace Sunglasses // Black Skinny Jeans, similar HERE // Fringe Bag, designer version HERE // Jord Wood Watch

Who doesn't like black on black??? I'm so feeling black on black lately.  OTK's with faux leather leggings are one of my favorite looks right now.  Here I paired my black Steve Madden Over the Knee Boots with an amazing pair of  Black Jeans I got in my September Stitch Fix.  I also have these boots in taupe and they are both amazing. These boots are a dupe of the Stuart Weitzman 'Highland' OTK's but much more affordable.  I definitely plan to invest in a pair of Stuart Weitztman boots but the Steve Madden's are amazing and I was able to walk in them for a long time so they are quite comfy.  I would suggest going up a half size if you buy them because they do run small.  I usually wear a 5.5 in shoes and I purchased a 6 which is perfect!

My Watch is from Jord Wood Watches and it is absolutely gorgeous! Mine is the Fieldcrest Series Watch in Zebrawood & Maple and you can still purchase my exact one HERE. I posted about it HERE but if you missed the giveaway you can always check them out here! This watch is lovely for fall.  The wood is dark and earthy and goes with just about any outfit!

I also got that lovely Mustard/Camel-Colored fringe bag in the same Sept. Stitch Fix.  That is another dupe of the Chloe Hudson Mini Fringe Bag which you all know that I am OBSESSED with.  The color looks like a mustard color in photos but in person (IMO) it's somewhere between mustard and camel.....but gorgeous all the same!

5 Must-Have Jackets for Fall

Guys it's Monday......but the working part of the day is over...Thank God!  I'm already ready for Friday........then again I'm always ready for the weekend!

Anyway, when it comes to fall fashion, I am a huge fan of outerwear...probably because I am always cold!  In my office it is freezing and I can literally go the entire day with my coat on so today I'm showing you 5 must-have jackets for fall.  Some could also work for winter or other seasons if layered properly and depending on where you live.  I'm going to show you some splurge picks as well as a few more wallet-friendly options!

The Utility Jacket
SPLURGE: Pendleton Bachelor Fur Trim Coat // STEAL:  Celebrity Pink Faux Fur Utility Coat

So I'm starting off with my absolute favorite coat EVER.  The Utility Coat ....preferably with a fur-lines hood!  This is a coat you are seeing everywhere in the last few years and can be found in any store.  You may also see it called an "Anorak Coat".  The olive green seems to be the most popular and is also my favorite for this jacket style.  The one I'm wearing above I just purchased from LOFT using their 60% off sale for cardholders.  Plus I combined it with $20 in Loft Rewards I had! SCORE!!!!  A great mid-range option would be THIS ONE from Buckle!  Buckle also carries one HERE by Steve Madden and another ever greater steal HERE for only $46


The Trench Coat

SPLURGE:  Burberry London // STEAL:  London Fog Double-Breasted Coat

Every classy girl NEEDS to have a cute Trench Coat in her closet.  This is a versatile piece that is not just for fall.  It works for every season especially if you purchase on in a classic tan color.  If money is no issue then you cannot go wrong with any of Burberry's gorgeous coats! London Fog is also a top contender and a little more budget-friendly!


The Skirt Coat

SPLURGE:  Moschino Caution Coat // STEAL:  Joe Browns Favorite Coat

I absolutely adore this type of coat.  I do not own one but I have been shopping around and I have my eye on a few.  This coat is very similar to a pea coat or even a trench but the major difference is that it flares out at the waist.  There is something so elegant about this coat and it looks lovely with skirts and dresses especially during the holiday season!


The Moto Jacket
SPLURGE:  Wilsons Leather Moto Jacket // STEAL:  Urban Republic Moto Jacket

If you have a bit of an edgy side this is THE perfect jacket for you.  You have probably seen them on every fashion bloggers IG profile at some point this year and thats because they are so HOT right now.  You can find them in almost every color and at every price point.  You can splurge on genuine leather or even go for faux leather or a heavy denim.  There's also a cute one HERE from Nordstrom that runs around $100 if you're looking for a mid-range price point! The possibilities are endless!


The Classic Jean Jacket

SPLURGE:  Armani Jean Jacket // STEAL:  Prana Jean Jacket

The Jean Jacket is a classic and will probably never go out of style.  It literally goes with EVERYTHING!  It can be styled with a casual look or worn over your favorite dress for an evening out.  There are no limits with jean jackets.  They are also great this time of year when its not too cold yet but you still need a lightweight jacket.

I hope you all enjoyed my suggestions for trendy fall outerwear.  I was going to include the bomber jacket too but I still haven't gotten into this trend quite yet .....I'm sure I will though......a few months late as always!

I Finally Got on the Jumpsuit Trend......

Hey ladies! I tried getting this post up yesterday but life happens......and I just could not get on the computer. Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! We finally got somewhat of a cool day here in GA on Saturday.  Like 80 degrees cool.  But at least it wasn't 100 degrees! So we spent the day on the boat with my in-laws......then I spent Sunday putting up our Halloween decorations!  All-in-all great weekend!

Plum Jumpsuit

Burgundy Choker //  Charming Charlie Colored Stone Bracelet (similar here) //
Versace Cat-Eye Sunglasses // Charming Charlie Gold Cuff Bangle (similar) //

Anywho on to the outfit deets!  Just like all other trends I was way late getting on the jumpsuit trend but I seriously love this one.  This one is a lovely plum color which is perfect for fall but it also comes in black.  It's a super soft jersey tee material and can be dressed up with heels or worn with sneakers and a cute jean jacket!  What's the best part?  It's originally only $17.99 at H&M and now on sale for only $9.99! I may just have to go get the black one too for that price!

Minimal Fall Look - Plum Cardigan & Ripped Jeans

Stitch Fix Plum Cardigan & Black Tee

Two blog posts in one day?  I'm on fire today! Actually I'm not........but I am feeling a little productive so hey why not!  By the way it is still deathly hot in Atlanta which has made it somewhat difficult to shoot fall looks.  These photos were taken in 95 degrees with humidity so my hair was not happy about that! Because of the heat I decided to go minimal on the accessories with this look too.

My plum cardigan and black tee are both super soft and slinky.  I love the color of the cardigan and the cut is really nice because it has slits down the side which I love.  Both came in my September Stitch Fix....and I happened to keep everything they sent because it was all AMAZING! If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix it is a monthly styling service where they send you clothing based on your taste and suggestions you give them and you only pay for what you keep.  You pay a monthly styling fee of $20 but that $20 does go towards your items if you decide to keep anything.  You also get 25% off if you keep everything.  Because I did keep everything I got this month I got a great deal.  I plan on posting the other items in a later post though.  If you are interested in signing up for Stitch Fix you can click on the link below!

Coach Cross-Body Styled with Ripped Jeans

Cardigan (Similar) // Black Tee (Similar) // Black Fringe Boots (Similar) // Ripped Jeans
Coach Cross-Body Bag (Similar) // Versace Sunglasses

I paired the tee and cardigan with a pair of black fringe boots I got last year from H&M, Ripped Jeans from Buckle & a cross-body bag from Coach.  The boots are a dupe of these YSL Boots, but I linked a similar pair above and below that are at a much lower price.  The cross-body bag is actually from their men's line but it's perfect and I love it.  This is one of my every day go-to bags since it's such good quality and stands up really well to every day wear and tear!

I hope you enjoyed this simple fall look!
