5 MUST Have Fall Pieces

Dress: Leith | Boots: Vince Camuto | Scarf: BP. | Crossbody: BCBG

Fall is here and it’s finally starting to cool down in Houston! I swear, it still felt like summer last week. So miserable when you just want to wear sweaters and boots all the time. I have rounded up five of my favorite must have pieces for fall and I wanted to share them with you all! Three of them are above in the pictures and the other two I linked for you below!

Black body con dress: This dress seriously needs to be in everyones closet. It comes in multiple colors and is such a good staple piece. You can wear it alone, with a scarf, with a sweater over it, with a cardigan over it and so many other ways! It is extremely flattering on everyone and is very soft and comfy. It is definitely worth the $59!

OTK Boots: These boots are GOLD! They are so easy to walk in and comfortable enough to wear for a full day. They come in four different colors and are currently on sale. I have gotten so much wear out of them already and love that they match with so much.

Anything cheetah or leopard: I am obsessed with all things cheetah for fall. It is so easy to match and dresses any outfit up! This leopard scarf is only $19!! I also love these cheetah booties that I got that are under $35!

Leather Leggings: I got my leggings last year and have worn them SO much. You can pretty much put them on under any top with a pair of boots or booties and have the cutest fall outfit. These leggings are very flattering and are definitely worth the money spent.

Velvet booties: I LOVE the velvet trend that is happening right now! I love mixing prints textures and your shoes are an easy way to do so! There are so many pairs that I love like these, these and these!

What to Wear to Fall Weddings

Dress: Similar | Shoes: Target | Crossbody: BCBG

Happy Wedding Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Patrick and I are leaving today to go to Dallas for a wedding he is in and I have had the hardest time deciding what to wear! It’s a fall wedding but the temperature is still so back and forth! I figured it was fitting to share with you all tips on what to wear to a fall wedding!

This dress is a perfect example of what I would wear to a wedding during this time of year. Unfortunately it sold out but I have linked some similar ones below! It’s long sleeve so it looks “fallish” but still cool enough to wear if it’s 85 degrees like it has been here in Houston! This dress is so cute paired with heels to dress it up or booties/boots to make it more casual. I paired it with these cheetah booties to give it a pop of pattern and this suede cross body. Suede is perfect for anything in the fall and the best part about this bag is it looks great with anything!

I rounded up a few other dresses that are perfect for fall weddings and put them in the carousel below! Although fall weddings can be hard to dress for, the best thing to do is go off the weather and the type of wedding. Take a more casual dress and dress it up with closed toed heels and you’re good to go! If the wedding is more casual, boots are a great choice to make an outfit less dressy. If you are unsure of the type of attire, the best thing to do is ask the bride. My rule of thumb is it is better to be over-dressed than under-dressed!

Are you tired of seeing bell sleeves on everything? I sure hope not! I am obsessed and this sweater will be on major repeat during the next few months!  The bell sleeves are so cute and trendy and are definitely a huge thing this year.

I paired this sweater with these boots and this hat for a casual look for everyday wear! These boots are so comfortable and are so easy to throw on with many different outfits. They are also on SALE! I stole this hat from my friend Emily from the blog Champagne and Chanel and am in love with it. I never thought I could pull off hats but this one seriously looks good on everyone!

I spent this past weekend at the Create and Cultivate Style Summit and had a blast! Friday was a happy hour and Saturday was the actual conference. Shelby from The Styled Petite stayed with me over the weekend and it was so nice to have a girls weekend and learn so much from all of the amazing speakers they had at the conference!

I hope everyone has a great Monday and has a great rest of the week! Patrick and I are leaving on Wednesday to go to Dallas for a friends wedding on Friday. If you have any questions feel free to reach out or email me at rachel@littlebitofliving.com!

JORD Watch Giveaway

I’ll start this post off by saying I love jewelry. Y’all I buy so much jewelry but then I forget to wear it. It’s so sad. I probably forget to wear it because let’s be real, I am usually running out of the house late to wherever I’m going. I usually stick to my Apple watch, but when I found the JORD watches, I loved the look of them. They are super light, trendy, and will honestly never go out of style.

Whenever I learned about JORD watches, I immediately LOVED the design of the watch and what the company quote that you can find on their website! “The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.” This stood out to me so much. JORD Watches uses a number of sustainable woods to create the perfect timepiece. The watches are very modern looking and will go with any outfit you have on like this pink sweater!

I chose the Frankie 35 series watch in zebrawood and champagne. When I put it on, the size of the face was perfect on my wrist. I have super small wrists so finding a watch face that doesn’t look too big is hard for me to do! Since I received the watch, I have literally worn it every day! I have received tons of compliments from people too! JORD has a variety of both women’s watches and men’s watches and would be the perfect gift for Christmas, a birthday, or any other special occasion! They are a great price range and have a different style for anyone’s taste. The best thing is they can be engraved! Definitely a gift that won’t go unnoticed!

If you have been wanting a JORD watch or you now want one after reading this, today is your LUCKY DAY! JORD and I have partnered up and we are doing a giveaway! One lucky Little Bit of Living reader will receive $100 off a JORD watch of their choice, and everyone who enters the giveaway will receive $25 off a watch until December 31, 2017.

CLICK HERE to enter the JORD Watch Giveaway! 

The contest will begin on Friday, October 13th and end on Sunday, October 29th! Good luck friends!! 🙂
