If yesterday’s post was any indication, I am craving me some fall weather. Temperatures have been in the high eighties this week and my reaction has been “OH YAY IT’S BEGINNING TO COOL OFF BRING OUT THE SWEATERS!” I legitimately walked out in a sweatshirt the other week for a walk with a friend (we were experiencing a “cold front” of 70 degrees…) and was legitimately depressed at prettty instantly realizing I had to change. Tank tops, I’m over you! But you rock. Sorry not to be mean. I’m just ready for a change.

So today, I decided to pull together a few fall pieces that you can get away with wearing now! Throw on your staple J.Crew quilted vest and fringe booties (that you’ll be getting plentyyy of wear out of in the coming months) over a light-weight base for a fall look that is actually wearable at this time of year.

Exhibit A? This $14 t shirt dress from Forever21! You may have seen it on my Insta yesterday, along with the ground breaking news (to me, at least) that you can get full refunds from online Forever21 orders instead of just store credit! This has me doing backflips. No more waddling through overwhelming, crowded, poorly organized racks bumping into the occasional run-away child or two on the way to the 15-minute long dressing room line all whilst trying to keep your sanity at the three year old dubstep hit playing throughout the store. I went a little click happy and received my first shipment yesterday, and all I can say is prepare to see a lot more wallet-friendly options around here. :)

Game changer, right? Does anyone have any more tips for dressing for fall in hot weather? I’d love to know!

Love from Texas,


P.S. STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. There’s an AMAZING sale going on at Neiman Marcus. You’ll get $50 off your order of $200 or more with the code JUST4U, and guys, sooo much is included. Like these Tory Burch riding boots and even my Chloé crossbody! I’ve never seen a sale include so many designer items… now I’m trying to figure out what to splurge on! Any recommendations? I’m liking the look of these babies… It ends at midnight tonight, so go go go!

Join in on the fun!
