What is your favorite fall color? As much as I love olive and the different shades of burgundy and magenta, my all time favorite is mustard yellow. It is just the perfect color pop for the season and can go with much more than some may think. Even if it doesn’t match completely there are still ways to tie it in, one of my faves is with navy.
I went through a period of thinking I couldn’t wear mustard anymore with red hair. I felt like I would be a walking ketchup and mustard combo. But finally I realized I totally could wear it, now I have moved on to feeling like I can’t wear bright pink.
I know I said one of my favorites is mustard with navy, but my all time favorite is mustard over black and white print. Whether it be black and white stripes, polka-dots or plaid (and yes I have all three), a mustard sweater or cardigan just looks so fall over it. Plus top the look off with camel tan boots, flats, or heels. Like I did here:
These loafer mules by Madewell are such a great fall piece for work and for casual wear. The pinkish tan suede make them a very versatile staple. They go with almost everything yet the pink tones make them stand out. PS – they are on sale for 60% off! I will link them below. I am hopping it will be cool enough to take out the boots soon!
I got this mustard cardigan during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (and it is on sale again for 40% off! Linked below). I love the balloon sleeve detail and that the sleeves are actually long enough. I am long but usually wear a small so most times long sleeves are too short on me. This one is sooo soft too! So is this v-neck that I also got from the Nordstrom sale. Actually, this entire outfit is from the Nordstrom sale! It has just been too hot to wear all together.

I went into Target today with no specific goal, per usual, and of course found something. As soon as I walked into the clothes section I spotted a sweater that I wanted. I love when you are thinking about a certain item you want and then you accidentally come across the perfect version (because do we ever find anything when we are actively looking for it? No.) I checked the Target Cartwheel app. and it had a coupon for 40% off women’s sweaters! Obviously meant to buy it so into the basket it went. For anyone who doesn’t use the Target Cartwheel app. please check it out. I have been using it for about 3 years now and I have saved $435.76 total!
Anyways my new sweater is the perfect shade of light pink, super soft, oversized, and cable knit. If there is anything better than a sweater, it is an oversized sweater. I also bought the essie gel couture polish in Touch Up and the top coat. I haven’t tried it yet but I am pretty excited to, hopefully tomorrow I will have more time to do it. I have been trying to be better and save money and NOT get my nails done at a salon so we will see how long this gel polish lasts without chipping. I will test it out and report back!
Lastly, I am so excited. I saw Gigi Hadid post a picture of the cover of the Vogue It Girl Style on her insta. not too long ago (because I am obsessed with her), and I had to have it! I was sad when I realized that it was an October edition and not in any stores anymore. I looked on Amazon because that was how determined I was to have it, and I found it! So worth it because it is BEAUTIFUL. I decided that my favorite Vogue covers are going to be my new collection. I have this one to add to my other favorite, the Taylor Swift cover (yeah whatever I am kind of nerdy but its cool!). Check out all of my little finds below and have a great night!

I recently became an advisor for my sorority and Sunday evening we had our first meeting of the semester. It may have been the first meeting of the semester, but it was my first meeting as an advisor ever. It was only going to be for an hour and at a brewing company, but my first thoughts were “What do I wear?!” I figured it had to be casual since it was so short and where it was being held at. I asked my friend who was going earlier last week and she said she was going casual. But the day of I asked her again because things change, but she didn’t respond! I was left on my own! One of my fears is being underdressed. I just picture myself walking into a place and everyone staring at me thinking “She came wearing that?!” and laughing to themselves. Biggest fear! So I always try to be a little overdressed, but in that “I’m not overdressed, I always dress like this” kind of way… did I even just make sense?
Anyways with no confirmation I just picked a casual and cute outfit (which I did not take a picture of… my bad) of jeans, a purple knit sweater, a white, cream, and tan statement necklace from my last post, and my new tan booties that I posted on Instagram but not on here I just realized! (they were only $21.99 from G Stage!)
I thought it all looked cute and when I got to the meeting I fit in perfectly, everyone was casual. Thanks goodness!

I see so many cute hats all over Instagram and I finally got my own! When I bought my favorite sweater of this season at Target I passed by this hat and just glanced at it, and later kept thinking about it. I decided that it would go great with my new sweater, figures I would convince myself to buy it, and when I went back to buy it, it wasn’t on sale anymore! I was so bummed but didn’t give up hope, it was after Thanksgiving so another sale was bound to happen. I couldn’t stop thinking about it though and kept envisioning my outfit wearing the hat with my new sweater. I checked online and it was on sale online only. I ordered it and picked it up in store.
A majority of this outfit is actually from Target, except for the jeans and the necklace. My jeans are from Abercrombie & Fitch and my necklace is from Charming Charlie. Also please admire these heels. I think they are so adorable. I had been wanting pointy leopard heels and of course found them at Target, because Target has everything. I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down, like wearing them here with distressed jeans.
Take a look…

Another Pinterest inspired outfit! I know this is more of a fall outfit, I even pinned it in the fall, but it being cloudy and cool today I thought why not? It is cute and warm without having to wear a jacket. When I first bought these cropped pants I wore them once then almost regretted buying them. I thought with the color they are, an almost rusty-brown, it was going to be hard to wear them. So I didn’t wear them for a while, but then I started I get ideas, obviously from Pinterest, and now I wear them a lot! They are pretty practical for work because they are not jeans, but they are not slacks either, so you stay comfy while also feeling a little casual. Just another way to recycle your closet!
