The weekend is upon us, and you know what that means! A new roundup of the cutest new arrivals to hit the web this past week.

This week, I saw a lot of fun holiday-esque items begin to pop up. Whether it was statement earrings, sparkly shoes or holiday pajamas, there were plenty of cute new arrivals that reminded me that Christmas season is just around the corner. Think about it… we’re almost to the end of October! Time flies, y’all.

Along with all of the holiday fun were a few favorites I couldn’t fit into the collage above. You’ll find them here:

After a fabulous week here in D.C. I’m jumping on a plane back to Dallas this morning! This week totally blew my expectations… not only is this city absolutely gorgeous, but the people I was lucky enough to meet are amazing. I can’t wait to share a few looks I captured here with y’all next week! In the meantime, enjoy this weekend!

gingham wrap dress

The wrap dress is my favorite dress silhouette of the moment, and gingham happens to be my favorite pattern. What do you get when you combine the two? Absolute perfection, y’all. I’m obsessed!

If you caught my Instagram try-on with Red Dress Boutique last week, you may remember this cute dress. I mean it when I say that it’s one of my favorite purchases this season! Perfectly ladylike with tons of southern charm, this cute thing is always being reached for during this time of year.

Whether I’m headed to a birthday dinner on a Friday night or church on Sunday morning, it’s the perfect combination of flirty femininity and classic charm. And have I mentioned it’s just about the most flattering thing in the world? Priced at under $50, it’s such a great buy!

Speaking of birthday dinners, I just might wear it to one I’m headed to in D.C. tonight. But before we get to that fun, I’m off to Georgetown for some shopping! And let’s be real… I fully intend on eating my way through the day. Wish me luck! :)

Love from D.C.

pink tassel scarf

I’ve found that adding a pop of pink to my ensemble is really all it takes to brighten up my day. In terms of layering, the more the merrier! When the days get shorter and temperatures start to drop, I reach for pastel colored cozies to breathe some fresh air into the dark colors of autumn and winter.

I’ve found that adding a pop of pink to my ensemble is really all it takes to brighten up my day. In terms of layering, the more the merrier! When the days get shorter and temperatures start to drop, I reach for pastel colored cozies to breathe some fresh air into the dark colors of autumn and winter.

This pink sweater is the perfect bubblegum shade and does that oh-so-nicely. I love its oversized fit… perfect for pairing with everything from jeans and heels to leggings and fuzzy socks!

I added this $35 tassel scarf for a bundled up look that’s still breezy and light. Even though baby pink isn’t the first shade you think of when it comes to versatility, it can actually be worn with so much! Pair this sweet scarf with camels and tans, navies, or all-white winter ensembles to name a few.

Speaking of bundling up in sweaters and scarves, I am giddy to report that yesterday was a gorgeous sixty degrees here in D.C. I had a lovely day wandering through the museums along the National Mall and rounded it out with a Starbucks on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Fall in D.C. is absolutely stunning… I can’t get enough of it!

Love from D.C.,

Kate

Happy Monday from Washington, D.C. y’all! I caught an early morning flight (hello 4am wakeup call) yesterday morning and arrived to the most beautiful fall day here in the capitol. After a Sunday spent relaxing with dear friends, complete with an outdoor fire and s’mores, I am all rested up and ready for a wonderful week exploring this beautiful city! There is so much to do here, and I can’t wait to get some of your recommendations checked off of my list!

I am so excited about today’s post because it embodies that classic, preppy autumn style I love so much. Meet one of my favorite pieces of the season, this monogrammed quilted vest! And have I mentioned it’s reversible?! Go classic and polished with the tan, monogrammed side, or switch things over for the perfect fall plaid. I love that this one piece gives you two totally different looks, and that it’s priced under $!00!

It is also available in a gorgeous chambray stripe combo, and a festive hunter green and plaid mix as well. If I’m being honest… I want them all. Who’s surprised?! I know we’re still a few months out, but keep this vest in mind for the holidays. It would make a darling Christmas gift!

I am so excited to bring y’all along on my D.C. adventure this week. I have read every single recommendation y’all have sent my way (have I mentioned I’m obsessed with y’all?!) and can’t wait to get thing started! I think there are worse ways to kick off a Monday, right? Let’s make this a fabulous week!

Love from D.C.,

Kate

Not only that, but we’re also back with a new roundup of the cutest new arrivals to hit the web from this past week. The theme of this roundup inadvertently went a little holiday-esque, and I’m not complaining! This romper would be perfect for Christmas parties, and I’d die to see this bag under my tree come Christmas.

As always, here are a few other cute new favorites that didn’t make the collage:
