Statement shoes are definitely having a moment this Fall season. From embroidered mules, to my new found favorite, embroidered tennis shoes. I will be completely honest and admit that less than 5% of my shoe closet are tennis shoes and the other 95% are heels. Working a 8-5 in Corporate America doesn't really lend itself to comfortable shoes, but whenever I can get my hand on a pair as cute as these white, embroidered tennis shoes its a complete game changer. Being a lover of fashion, I'm constantly scrolling through my Instagram feed for outfit inspiration and staying up late on Pinterest pinning fashion trends that I can put my own spin on. Wearing tennis shoes with dresses is currently a trend statement I've been seeing everywhere and couldn't wait to try. 
I paired this overall jean jumper dress with a statement poplin sleeve white top and my Frye crossbody which is perfect for Fall. These statement shoes gifted to me by the team at Traffic Shoes were the perfect way to make this outfit trendy and chic. I cannot wait to style these adorable shoes with some of my Fall sweaters that I FINALLY get to wear. Can't wait to share with all of you! Meanwhile, I'll just be over here breathing in all the Fall crisp air, drinking Trader Joe's Pumpkin spice coffee, and slipping on my booties because, I do believe that Fall has arrived.

Marigold






One of my favorite things about seasons changing is getting to play with different color hues. In the past, I've been naturally drawn to deep merlot shades once the temperature finally starts to cool down but this Fall is a different story. I have been loving the Marigold yellow color this season. It's saturated pigment is absolutely gorgeous and chic yet playful and fun. Also, the sleeves on this sweater are my absolute favorite. I've been seeing tons and tons of bell sleeve sweaters and they are surely going to be one of my  This past weekend, we got a little bit more of a taste, well...more like a tease of chilly, Fall weather and my family and I took full advantage. We visited Windy Hill Orchard in York, SC and partook in all things Fall i.e. Cider doughnuts, live music, hard cider flights and more! I'm so excited for the weather to actually stick around, for cozy sweaters and layers, the smell of bonfires in the crisp night, pumpkin picking and re-runs of Hocus Pocus on FreeForm LOL.

Cool for the Summer





Striped Jumpsuit: Target found here. Shoes: Nordstrom Rack -BCBG found here

with Fall literally right around the corner, you would think that the temps would start to cool down by now but its been the exact opposite. I'm anxiously awaiting the moment when the air turns crisps and stays that way so that I can pull out all the cute Fall sweaters and tweed blazers that I recently purchased and have been dying to wear! Am I the only one? In the meantime, I've been holding onto some of my summer, closet staples like this striped jumpsuit that I recently purchased from Target. I layered it with my favorite, distressed denim jacket which is sure to make several more appearances as I start to style and shoot some Fall looks. I've been a little MIA over the past couple of months due to recently starting a new job! I plan on getting back into my regular routine and swing of things but thanks so much for following along and bearing with me! Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons, mainly because the scenery here in the Carolina's is absolutely gorgeous with the trees changing and the leaves on the ground. I cannot wait! We're ready when you are, Fall! What are you most excited for, for Fall?
