Grey Sweater + Green Wool Skirt

 

Sweater: Wayf | Skirt: Madewell | OTK Boots: Goodnight Macaroon | Purse: Similar

This skirt literally screams Christmas! I love the wool material and the zips on the front! It’s so warm and comfy and would also be so cute with tights on underneath if it was cold enough! I paired it with this sweater from Nordstrom and these boots! This sweater is a staple piece in my closet! I have worn it soo much! It goes with so many different outfits and it’s super easy to style. Now, about these boots. These are the BEST OTK boots!!! I cannot stress this enough. They don’t fall, and that is HUGE to me! I hate when I am constantly having to pull up boots but I never have to with these!

Happy Wednesday, friends! We are halfway through the week! That makes for a happy Rachel! I’m headed to Dallas today for my wedding dress alterations! It’s getting so real and I can’t wait for our big day! I’m SO excited to put my dress back on this weekend! Have a happy, happy day y’all!

Mustard Yellow Sweater + Skirt

Sweater: H&M | Skirt: H&M | Boots: Similar

If you couldn’t already tell from Snapchat and Instagram, I had the BEST weekend! My bridal party and I went to Austin for my bachelorette weekend and had the time of our lives. Stay tuned for a new Wedding Wednesday post this Wednesday all`1 about what we did!

I decided to carry the fiesta theme of my bach party into this week with this skirt and sweater! I am obsessed with the mustard yellow color right now. Every time I go shopping, I find myself picking out everything in this color! It’s the best for fall. This sweater is so cute with really any bottoms! The skirt is a woven pattern and I love all the colors in it! Everything fits TTS too!

So funny story about these boots..I wore the ones in this picture to take pictures and when I came home I had them in a bag that I set on our bedroom floor. Remi, our yellow lab, stays out now when we leave and she has been doing so well with not chewing anything up! So I left to go run an errand and came back home and she had pulled the boots out of my bag and chewed them up. I really wanted to cry LOL. I couldn’t get mad at her though because I was the one that left them out for her to reach! So I needed a new pair of black over the knee boots and decided to get these! They are super comfortable and I love the tie in the back because it helps them stay up and not fall down while you wear them. Did I mention they’re under $100!!

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday! I took today to recover and do stuff around the house. It was much needed!

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!
