A Striped Duster

After a long, long wait, the perfect cool fall weather has finally made its way to Texas. This also means quite a bit of rain every now and then, but I’m willing to compromise… in order to wear more layers. This duster cardigan is a favorite; it pairs well with the majority of my dresses and has a great bold effect for an otherwise simple outfit. Oh, and this tank?! Got it on mega sale only to come home and find out it also reverses to white! Double win!

Trending Tuesday

Bringing back my weekly Trending Tuesday with a trend that I’ve been seeing all over the blogosphere, but that I haven’t bought into until just a few weekends ago: suede. I’ve been crazily on the hunt for a faux-suede skirt and FINALLY found one (exact one but in black!). Below are a few suede and faux-suede pieces that are perfect to inject into your fall wardrobe (all under $50 too).

1. Cupshe Faux-Suede Button-Down Skirt – I have loved these everywhere; seriously, anyone and everyone can and should wear this this fall. I’m partial to the tan/camel colored ones and have paired mine with a white button down so far. Similar options here – olive green! – and here.

2. Old Navy Suede Lace-Up Flats – This summer I grabbed up some lace-up sandals, and I’m falling all over again for this lace-up trend for fall too. Le sigh. Poor bank account. For a more neutral version: try these out.

3. Forever 21 Faux-Suede V-Neck Dress – This looks and feels even better in person, and the big pockets give it a cool vibe. Be aware that it is truly a shift shape, so wouldn’t be able to work on everyone. For that reason, here are some fit-and-flare versions: here and here.

4. Forever 21 Pointed Zip-Up Booties – The full suede/faux-suede texture amps up this classic style a bit, and the zip is a nice touch too. I’ve always loved F21 shoes and have never had any issues with something being too low quality. I treat my shoes really nicely though, as you should, so yea.:)

5. Asos New Look 70’s Suedette Saddle Bag – Love, love, love. I’ve been on the hunt for a “mini” bag, and love the saddle shape on this one. Plus, that hardware. <3

Anyone else on the hunt for suede/faux-suede pieces for fall? I’m kind of obsessed at the moment. Helpppp.

A Hint of Lace

First things first: I fell in LOVE with this tank top at the end of the summer and continue to obsess over the lace that wraps from the back to the sides.

Second: These pics were taken back in LR, and they’re basically from the summertime. Still have a bit of catching up to do. I would LOVE to find another blogger in Fort Worth to collaborate with. Photographing one’s outfit is not easy, and, frankly, sometimes boring with just me, myself, and I.
