Fall Lookbook Vol. 1

As much as I don't want to admit it, Fall it poking her pretty little head around the corner. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Fall (enter Pumpkin everything) but nothing holds the place of Summer for this Cali girl.

 I will say though, nothing beats Fall fashion, and while perusing my fave stores to put together my Fall wish list I noticed one thing - Fall accessories are on point this year! Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing my top picks for shoes, bags and accessories, to carry all you little fashion queens into the Fall.

Burgundy has, and always will, be red hot for Fall! I love the idea of pairing these burgundy flats with an edgy fringe bag and feminine statement necklace. 

These accessories would pair nicely with jeans and a tee shirt, and since that's all I seem to wear lately, it gets my first pick.

Classic

You can never really go wrong with jeans, a plain white tee and black blazer. It's a classic look that never gets old. Pair it with a cute new pair of open toed mules...even better! The suede material and laced back are to die for!

Btw - I'm in the market for some new staple jeans. Which do you recommend?




Heels: ShoeMint // Jeans: old // Blazer: Forever 21, love this
Shirt: T + J designs // Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: Sears + Sole Society

The Perfect Margarita

There's nothing I love more than Mexican cuisine, and throwing a good fiesta! One of mine and Bran's favorite Summer pastimes is to whip up a batch of guacamole and throw some carne asada on the grill. Of course, no fiesta at our place is complete without Margaritas! 

Bran and I have sort of become "marg snobs" and are super picky about the ingredients (mixes are a no-no!) In the spirit of Summer (and trying to "will" Fall away) I'm sharing this concoction that we think is the perfect margarita.

Cheers to the freakin' weekend!



1 Jigger Silver Tequila (I like Milagro)
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Triple Sec
1 1/2 Limes (squeezed)

Shake Over Ice

Salt Your Rim + Pour!

Psst - If the limes are too bitter, I add a little simple syrup. Another fun way to mix up this recipe is to add a squeeze of grapefruit juice.

Enjoy!

Knotted Maxi

The usual suspects (black + white) are back again. Surprise, surprise!

I've had this dress forever, but recently took a page from Pursuit of Shoes' book by trying a knotted maxi. Needless to say, this tried and true classic was completely transformed.




Oh, btw - did you see these hat and sunnies? I happened upon them during our night out in Branson landing last week at a store called Versona. Best of all, I scored them both for under $30. Woot, woot! Totally feel like Rachel Zoe in them. #Maj

Maxi: Marshall's, super similar // Sandals: Sole Society, similar
Hat + Sunnies: Versona // Bag: Marshall's, similar
Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelets: Sears + Target
Ring: Old Navy

Linking With: Trend Spin Linkup // Style Elixir // The Pleated Poppy // Transatlantic Blonde // Because Shanna Said So // What I Wore  // Spotlight Weekly // Tres Chic Thursdays //  Working Girl Style // Lovely Thursday

My First Pair Of Flats

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to the very first pair of flats I have EVER owned. Crazy, right?! No joke, though. These are them.

It's not that I don't think flats are totally cute. I actually really like them. I just hate them on my big "boat" feet. I finally broke down a few months ago and picked these up, and I have to say I fell in love. Maybe it's the d'orsay toe that gives the optical illusion of petite feet, or maybe it's just the fact that this aztec print is super cute. Whatever it is, I'm officially on the flat bandwagon and loving every step of it. 



Flats: Sole Society, almost identical 
Jeans: Marshall's, love these (Only $32!)
Tee: Target, similar // Chambray: Gap, similar (on sale!)
Bag: Marshall's, love this // Sunnies: SPY, exact
Earrings: Target (old) similar // 
Necklace: Target (old) super similar (on sale!)
