A Fall Look for Warm Weather

     Every few days I’ll get lucky with a cooler day where I can actually wear seasonally appropriate clothes like booties and light jackets, but most days it’s still pretty warm in South Carolina this time of year.  Today I’m sharing one of my favorite looks for these awkward fall days; one that features classic fall tones but won’t have you sweating by the end of the day!  Enjoy!

     I picked up the cutest army green top from Altar’d State over the summer.  It has the worn in, flowy look that most of Altar’d State’s pieces seem to have as well as fun lace detailing on the hem and flattering stitching across the midriff.  I love this top for this time of year because the hue is so perfect for the season but the top itself has short sleeves and isn’t too heavy of a material.  I paired the top with ankle jeans and my Birkenstock Madrid sandals for a comfy fall look.  I dressed up the look a little with a pretty necklace I recently received from an Instagram jewelry boutique, Beads by Syd.  I adore the necklace’s dainty white and gold beading and the large statement stone!  This necklace is definitely on trend right now, but I don’t see it going out of style anytime soon, which is great because it seems to be great quality!  I kept the rest of my jewelry pretty simple given the size of stone on the necklace.

An Outfit Inspired by Abigail of Belle of the Ball

     Unfortunately, due to a ton of weekend travels and busy school weeks I was unable to follow through with several of my monthly series during September.  I really hate that that happened but I have to prioritize school and I hate turning down an adventure!  Anyways, today I’m continuing one of my favorite series, “An Outfit Inspired by…” with a post featuring an outfit inspired by the well known Instagrammer and blogger behind Belle of the Ball (@belleoftheball45 on Instagram); Abigail.  I love coming up with outfits for this series because it’s so neat to realize how many things I have that I could totally see some of my fashion idols wearing.  You can find my other “An Outfit Inspired by…” posts here if you’re interested in reading more!  Enjoy!

     Abigail is a current sophomore at Mercyhurst University.  Despite her considerably young age, she has a ton of blogging experience under her belt, including working with countless brands like Vineyard Vines, SheIn, and Carolina Clothing Company and even being featured by Teen Vogue.  She’s been blogging since 2014 and I’d say she’s one of the girls who paved the road for teenage fashion bloggers everywhere.  Abigail uses her 60,100 follower Instagram, 8,000 follower Pinterest, and the occasional YouTube video to share her classic, preppy style with the world.  Abigail was without a doubt one of my biggest influences when I began my own blog and I still look up to her style.

     Abigail styled the most adorable brown corduroy skirt last fall, and at the time I loved it so much I decided to purchase the same one for myself (I still wear it all the time!).  When she styled it again more recently, it occurred to me that this skirt should definitely make it to my outfit inspired by Abigail.  It’s easy to see just by scrolling through Abigail’s Instagram that she loves feminine details as well as layering, so I thought this pale blue button down with a ruffled collar would be perfect to layer under my blue vintage Ralph Lauren sweater.  She also seems to be pretty fond of leopard print right now, so I finished the ensemble with a pair of leopard print flats from J.Crew.  I kept the jewelry pretty simple with a gold monogram necklace, gold Kate Spade watch, and a little gold pave heart cuff from Aqua Kiwi.  The earrings are somewhat hard to see, but they’re just little pearl dangles.  Abigail doesn’t actually have pierced ears and often converts fun styles to clip ons so she can wear them anyways (I know this from watching her Instagram stories haha I’m not creepy I swear)!  I could definitely see her doing that with these classic pearls.

Army Green Accents

     Now that the temperatures are finally beginning to drop here in South Carolina I’m starting to look at my fall wardrobe.  Fall fashion has to be my favorite; layering is just so fun and I love traditional fall tones like maroon, taupe, grey, blush pink, and army green.  I’m honestly ecstatic to start posting more autumn outfit posts, but in the mean time you can read mine from previous years here.  Today I’m sharing a fun fall look that I absolutely adore, and I think y’all will love it too!  Enjoy!

     About a month ago I purchased the cutest red tank from J.Crew Factory, complete with fringe and embroidered details.  The best part about this purchase had to be the price, this tank was only $9.99!  It’s still on sale and also comes in navy, white, and yellow, shop it here!  I toned down the vibrant red with an army green utility jacket from a local boutique, dark wash ankle jeans, and my favorite pair of taupe colored booties.  I recently received a pearl choker from Bella Designs by Bree which is strung on army green suede that matches the jacket perfectly.  Be sure to check out Bella Designs by Bree and use my code “FAITH15” for 15% off!  The rest of my jewelry consisted of simple white and gold pieces including white pearl Kendra Scott Danielle earrings, a gold Kate Spade watch, and an adorable cuff from Cuffed by Nano.  The simple gold cuff says “Eat Pray Hustle,” which I think is too cute! Cuffed by Nano carries a ton of pretty and customizable jewelry pieces, check them out here!  I love this look for the fall and I’m sure I’ll get a ton of use out of it throughout the season.

How to Style Your Favorite Summer Sundress in the Fall

     Today’s the first official day of the fall equinox and I couldn’t be more excited.  I adore fall fashion and I’m so happy to be sharing my first fall outfit post of the year with y’all today!  Speaking of happy… this post features my new favorite Jadelynn Brooke dress!  You can purchase the dress, along with anything and everything else on the Jadelynn Brooke website, for yourself 15% off with my code FLHS, and while it was designed for the spring and summer, you’re about to find out how to wear it in the fall!  Enjoy!

     As much as I love fall fashion, I hate leaving my favorite summer sundresses behind.  This one, the Jadelynn Brooke Cami Dress in the print “Beachside Belle,” easily became my favorite this summer thanks to its adorable palm and polka dot print, adjustable straps, flattering shape, and pockets.  Yes, pockets!  As autumn approached, I was determined to find a way to bring it into the next season, and I think I found the perfect solution!  I thought the versatile color and cut of this oatmeal colored cardigan, which I purchased at Marshalls last winter, would look darling over the dress.  My favorite pair of tan suede booties also assisted in balancing out the bright summery print with more neutral fall tones.  As for jewelry, I matched a fun pair of tassel hoop earrings from E Squared to the coral details and lining of the dress and kept the rest of my accessories pretty simple.

Bell Sleeves and Final Autumn Leaves

     About a month or two ago one of my favorite bloggers posted an outfit featuring a bell sleeve top, and I instantaneously knew I had to get one for myself.  Since then I had been looking for the perfect bell sleeve top for this season when I finally came across this one from Banana Republic.  I love it’s pretty floral pattern and the bell sleeves are a trend I’m so happy I hopped on!  I paired this adorable top with some rolled up jeans, fringe booties, a monogram necklace, and some statement earrings to complete the look.  Enjoy!

Navy Embroidery and Army Green

     Throughout the fall, I often find myself wearing some variation of this outfit; a short sleeve top under my army green utility jacket with jeans and booties.  Today’s outfit post is probably one of my favorite versions of this outfit that I have worn so far.  I love this top, the navy embroidery on the white tee is so classic and I think it looks great with this jacket.  I rolled up the jacket’s sleeves and added some fun, sparkly bangles and my Kate Spade watch (as usual).  The booties I chose for this outfit are definitely some of my all time favorites and they’re so on trend right now!  Here’s the outfit, enjoy!
