Welcome to my new kitchen!!

I’m overjoyed to show you more of the post renovation. It was been a dusty journey of endless paper plates, washing dishes in the basement and lots of patience in between.

What do you think?

While we still have plumbing and backsplash behind the stove to do, I thought it would be fun to show some sneak peeks of our kitchen using some new Walmart home finds. Like these wood pieces, faux magnolia flowers, pasta bowls and ADORABLE soup bowls! Now, If I could only replicate Grandma’s tomato soup!

I recently came across these jeans as I was shopping for our big trip next month and loved the rips and price tag, under $80! Along with good rips, I thought I’d need a cozy cardigan for the snowy days Colorado is having. What are your favorite layers?

I’m in the midst of putting together a fall must have collection of only a max of ten items to show you guys and a blazer is among the must haves for fall. While it’s still an 80 degree fall in SoCal, you can still dress up shorts with a blazer and chic heels. I partnered with Adriana Online on social this week, but this look was too good not to share here too.

DENIM I love a good pair of denim for fall dressed up with a tank and blazer. I tend to like both dark and light denim. See some of my picks below:

BLAZERS Nothing dresses up denim like a tailored blazer over a tank. And I’m loving them in all colors. See my picks below:

Softest pullover (can be worn off-the-shoulder)

When the temps dip, I my favorite thing to reach for (besides fur-lined slides) is a cozy knit. While every sweater promises to be the coziest, I’ve edited them down to a handful I’ve worn and love. Meanwhile, still waiting on that cozy weather here in SoCal.

 I’m also sharing some faves to accompany the sweater like cute leather pants and grey boots. Even though the temps say 86, I’m still reaching for hot drinks and feeling cozy indoors reading books with my kids on the couch. Happy Fall!

Sweaters make are some of my favorite looks. What is your favorite cozy look?

Happy Humpday! Today I’m sharing 5 Fall favorites minus the pumpkin spice latte. I’m thinking low boots, faux fur details, and classic plaid. Can’t you just hear the leaves crunching beneath your boots? I’m a fan.

Also, loving these jeans for the fit and distressed details to be worn with this sweater or this sweater. It’s good to have a pair that seems to get better with time. What is your Fall go to?

With the kids starting school, I’m in search of easy meals and even easier outfits. Enter the easy one-piece. This chambray one-piece romper is just what I was in search of paired with sleek OTK boots to kick it up a notch.  See an under $228 option here). Speaking of boots, it’s a great time to get your hands on the coveted always sold-out over-the-knee boots. I was scouring the internet last year for over the knee boots in my size 9. I’m embarrassed to say how long it took but I finally settled on these gray ones in size 9.5. As a good friend should, I’m telling you now, before the leaves change and your neighbors are wearing OTK boots holding their PSL’s (pumpkin spice lattes). Warning you’ll be seeing me style these boots many times over, which just means its a great buy. What are some of your favorite Fall buys?

I’m often asked, how to style a plaid coat. Well, if you’re more like a black coat type of person, have no fear. A lot of basics and neutrals tone down the craziest of coats. First step is a suede skirt, neutral top (I like a touch of ruffle under $70!), and brown bootie. A combo I can wear to church, birthday parties and meetings. Really the simplest outfits make the biggest impact. Shop this look at Nordstrom, and as always my shop page. Happy Humpday!

After a ruffle-white-clad summer, I’m all about donning the leopard and parading the bell sleeves. And did I mention, both pieces are under $50? Fall has me craving leopard styled with some of my favorite black pieces: black pumps and a classic mock neck. Furthermore, treat leopard like Kool-Aid – add lots of water (aka solid colors) if you want to play it down Jackie O. style. I prefer all black, denim or white! Last week, I had the privilege in between shows and meetings, a stop at the landmark Grand Central Station. It was a first for me and so iconic! The giant windows, the chandeliers and overall stunning room was breathtaking. One of the many reasons I love charming New York city, despite the humidity that killed my hair. True story.

Who doesn’t love a couple of Fall scores? I’m always searching for lace-up sweaters, durable (ahem, flattering) faux leather leggings, and lace up boots … all of which I’m wearing here. I’m always telling friends and followers that it doesn’t take lots of money to refresh your wardrobe if you invest in the basics. And this chunky knit goodness is under $50, leggings are under $100 and my (go-to) lip stain is $24. How’s that for Friday Faves?
