|Sweater: Free People (also here)--on SALE, Turtleneck: Target, Jeans: Topshop, Hat: J. Crew, Booties: Vince Camuto|
If y'all can get your hands on this sweater while it's on sale, I highly recommend it. I linked to it via two different websites because I do see that the sizes are selling out quickly! It's also 2 different prices. It is the PERFECT fall cardigan and is cozy enough to take you through winter too. I love that it's neutral and goes with almost any outfit.

|Dress: Madewell (on sale!), Hat: Nordstrom (old, similar here), Booties: Vince Camuto|
This dress would actually be perfect for Thanksgiving especially if you live somewhere a little warmer. The temperature dropped about 30 degrees here in VA from the time I took these photos so I would definitely have to pair some tights and a coat over top if I was going to wear this dress in this weather!
I'm going to be missing Friday's post so I can totally soak up the time off and enjoy my family but I hope y'all have an AWESOME Thanksgiving! Make sure to join our link-up today and I'll see you guys Monday!

|Sweater: Romwe (c/o), Jeans: Topshop, OTK Boots: Steve Madden, Bag: Tory Burch, Hat: J. Crew (new FAVORITE)|
I was super excited when Romwe reached back out to me about collaborating again. They have awesome pieces and a great price-point. This sweater really caught my eye--I love that it's a fun twist on a classic grey sweater. It's AWESOME quality and it's so cozy now that super cold weather is starting to roll in around here! Definitely check them out if you haven't already--they have really cute, trendy pieces but also some great basics/staples.

This is the first of probably many gift guides but I wanted to start off with a collection of adorable little trinkets I have been seeing on different sites when looking for gifts for my mom, aunt, cousins, etc. First off, can we just talk about this velvet Rebecca Minkoff bag?! I really want it for myself but I'm not sold on the navy color. I don't like the black as much because the gold hardware is just to die for on the navy! Also, I saw this Tatcha set at Sephora last weekend and it looks AMAZING. I have been wanting to try their products for a while because I have such dry skin but they are a little pricey. This set seems like a really good value.
Have a wonderful weekend guys! xoxo

Happy Wednesday y'all! Hope you're having a great week so far. Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving?! Seriously, where is time going? I don't think I've mentioned this yet on the blog but we are actually going to the Outer Banks with my family for Thanksgiving from Wednesday through Sunday. I cannot WAIT! My Aunt has a beach house there so we have the opportunity to go in the off-season pretty often. Obviously it won't be tanning weather but it's nice to go there and just soak up the views and relax. Plus, if you have never heard of Duck Donuts, you're truly missing out. That's reason enough to make the trip!
I got this top last year from Zara and guys--I'm totally ashamed to say this but I completely forgot I purchased it (insert ashamed emoji). I am so glad that I found it because it is SUPER adorable and y'all know I'm loving boho everything right now. It's no longer being sold on Zara's site but I linked to a couple that are similar! Plus, you can always find really cute printed blouses at Zara year-round. I'm glad I keep finding all these hidden treasures in my closet because I really need to start buckling down and saving more for the wedding. I think reality is finally setting in!

|Sweater: H&M, Scarf: Free People. Denim: Articles of Society, Booties: Vince Camuto|
I'm sure y'all have seen this scarf a ton on other bloggers and I just had to hop on the bandwagon. It's so cozy and I LOVE the color, however, I linked to a dupe in this post and I have to say that the quality is pretty much the same. I got the H&M version in grey and it's just as soft (if not softer) than the Free People one. If you're on a budget, definitely check out H&M. They have a bunch of color options too! Also y'all--this sweater is the softest one I've ever owned. I can't stop wearing it! H&M is killing it lately especially for the price.
Every few years I sort of get into a funk where I really dislike everything in my closet or at least the way that I'm styling it. This happened probably 3 years ago when I just felt really bored with everything I was wearing and now I'm getting that feeling again. I think I get into this mindset where I get afraid of super statement pieces and even though I think basics are so important, I definitely want to have way more fun with my wardrobe. Here are a couple tips that I follow personally when looking to "reinvent" my style:
1.) Dress and Purchase Intuitively-Really think about your style, your personality, what truly grabs your attention when it comes to fashion. Don't dress a certain way because it's the trend or because it's how your peers are dressing. Get in touch with your personal fashion sense that is a true expression of you!
2.) Get Inspired-Whenever I grow tired of how I'm dressing, I always find it helpful to go to other blogs or Pinterest or even get inspired by fashion from the past! Look at fashion from the 60's or 70's and also look at fashion worldwide. I also have been really into European fashion and blogs because I just love their classic style! I also love getting inspiration just by flipping through store magazines and seeing how the models are styled. The Anthropologie magazine is one of my favorites!
3.) Play with Prints & Patterns-Something that I feel like I'm lacking in my wardrobe is a lot of fun bright colors and fun prints. I think adding more of those elements into my every day style will really add fun dimension!
4.) Find Unique Pieces-When shopping, even though this goes against everything I always say about finding good basics, now I'm trying to find some really good STATEMENT pieces! A few stores that I always turn to when I want something truly "unique" and fun--Anthropologie (pretty much my favorite store especially recently), Asos, Zara, ModCloth. Those are just a few!
5.) Think Gradual-If you want to "revamp" your wardrobe, don't go out and buy a whole new wardrobe at once. Start gradually adding in pieces that are more fitted to the style you're aiming for. Also think about pieces that you can add that will work well with items you currently have in your cloest. Once you pair the two, it may give you the look you're going for! For example, if you have a plain black dress, think about a fun hat or scarf or belt to get a cool boho vibe.
Hope y'all enjoyed these tips! I'm excited to start changing up my style a little bit and sharing some really cool pieces with you on the blog!
|Poncho: Nordstrom Rack (super similar here and LOVE this one), Tee: J. Crew, Hat: Nordstrom (old, similar here), Jeans: Paige Denim, Booties: Vince Camuto|
I have been LOVING everything at the Nordstrom Rack near me lately and this poncho was an awesome find. I linked to a couple that are similar--one that is majorly catching my eye from Lulu's! Ponchos are so easy to throw on and automatically your outfit looks super trendy and cute. I love that this one is really neutral and can be paired over so many different bottoms and accessories. Also, not sure if you guys remember these boots from last year but you can find them still at Nordstrom Rack and DSW!

|Top: SheIn (c/o), Jeans: Zara, Booties: Steve Madden, Sunnies: Quay, Bag: Vince Camuto (sold out, similar here)|
I was so excited SheIn reached out to me again about collaborating. I am in LOVE with their clothes for fall and I thought this top was so much fun! If you guys want good quality clothes at a super affordable pricepoint I highly recommend them. They have great basics but they also have clothes that are super trendy like this top!
|Free People Scarf vs. H&M scarf, Rag & Bone Hat vs. Billabong Hat, B-low the Belt vs. UO belt, Celine Sunglasses vs. Lulu's Sunglasses|
I have been find all sorts of good dupes lately which is what sparked the idea for this post! The first I found was a dupe for the B-low the Belt belt. I got a one-buckle dupe from Urban Outfitters that I wore in my last post but if you like more of a statement, here is a double-buckle that is almost identical and a fraction of the cost. Also, I got this Free People scarf last week in the lighter beige color and I am BEYOND obsessed. I have already worn it 3 or 4 times. When I saw H&M had an almost identical version, I knew I had to get it in the grey color. I haven't received it yet but it looks just as soft as the Free People scarf! I'll keep you guys posted on my thoughts.
What are your plans for this weekend?!
|Sweater: Express (sold out, similar here and here), Jeans: Topshop, Belt: Urban Outfitters, Booties: Aldo, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff|
I picked up this Express cropped turtleneck during one of their 40% off everything sales a couple weeks ago and I LOVE it. I noticed that it sold out already but I linked to one pretty similar that comes in a gorgeous mauve color and black. My only issue with this turtleneck is it's pretty itchy--the ones I linked to look like they might be a softer material! They also have a sale going on right now where if you buy one sweater, you get the second one for $19.90 so it's a pretty good deal. They have an awesome selection right now!

--Just an update--I saw they restocked the V-neck version of this turtleneck here!
