Bring on Fall!!

Check out the new wrist warmers and boot cuffs I made myself for fall! Pinterest has been loaded with outfit pins featuring infinity scarves, boot cuffs and wrist warmers. I thought it would be fun to try and make some of my own. Once the cool weather gets here I am sure you will see me with my skinny jeans, knee high boots and boot cuffs on every day.

 

Wine Wrist Warmers (Please excuse my unpolished nails :/ )

Ivory Boot Cuffs

Living in New Hampshire is great because we have all 4 seasons. Spring is always lovely with the blooming flowers, Winter is beautiful with the snowfall, and how can you not love a warm summer day by the pool? But Fall is my absolute favorite season.

Fall brings the stunning fiery red, orange and gold foliage over the sprawling mountainsides. It means there is a crispness in the air that makes the temperature just right for cozy chunky knit sweaters and knee high boots. Fall is simply picturesque here in New Hampshire.

What is your favorite season? Are you excited for fall or are you sad for summer to end?

Beach Cover-up

This lovely beach cover-up is a gift from my mom.

Dress: My local Hallmark Store

Believe it or not she bought this dress at our local Hallmark Store for only $15! Our Hallmark has a corner of the store that looks like a little boutique. They sell dresses, handbags, sandals, tops, and more along with the usually cards and gifts.

The other interesting thing about this dress is that it is labeled “One size fits all”. The fabric is stretchy and the elastic waist has quite a bit of give. The fabric is incredibly soft and breathable.

I love this dress for any beach or lake trips. It is easy enough to throw on but also looks quite nice. I wouldn’t hesitate to stop at a casual restaurant for a meal after a day at the beach in this dress.The fabric won’t wrinkle if I toss it in a beach bag while I’m out in the sun. When I pull it out of the bag it looks just as good. I think it’s a great summer piece!

How do you cover up at the beach? Do you wear sundresses? Shorts?

Enjoy your afternoon!

Sun and Stripes

In honor of the lovely weather we had this past weekend, this post features my new bikini!

Swimsuit: Victoria’s Secret

Over the weekend I took it easy and spent my afternoons resting and floating in the pool.

I got this bathing suit from Victoria’s Secret. For the past few years I have bought my bathing suits exclusively from Victoria’s Secret. There is something about the fit that is just perfect. The stripes on this suit are what caught my eye when I was shopping. They’re fun without looking too young. The top has a removable halter strap that I choose not to use in the pool. For a day at the beach I’d throw it on for the extra support.

How was your weekend? Was it warm where you are? How do you beat the heat?

Light and Casual

Happy Thursday readers!

Today’s outfit is casual look for a hot summer day.

Top: American Eagle (Last season)

Shorts: LOFT Outlet (Not available online)

Bracelet: Express (Last season)

Necklace: Lia Sophia (Retired design)

I got this top on sale at American Eagle last summer. I love it because it is very light and easy to wear. I can pair it with my shorts on a hot day or with jeans and a blazer or cardigan on a cool day.

My bermuda shorts are a recent purchase from the LOFT Outlet. Unfortunately, the items sold in the LOFT Outlet are exclusive to those stores. They are not available online. If you have a LOFT Outlet near you I highly recommend checking it out. It was difficult for me not to buy everything I saw when I shopped there. The prices were very low to begin with and on top of that there was a storewide 40% off promotion running. The quality of the clothing at the LOFT Outlet is superb. I know the pieces I purchase there will last me a very long time.

Have you shopped at a LOFT Outlet? What is your favorite item you’ve purchased from them?

Enjoy your Thursday!
