I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, mine was filled with an all day blogger event on Saturday and lounging around the house on Sunday. 
I am so excited that it's fall, now if the temperature would just match how I am feeling! It is still 80 degrees plus here is Alabama, I mean can a sister catch a break?! 
This week I have a lot of deadlines, some I have made for myself and some school has made for me, needless to say it is going to be a busy week! 

Happy Monday!

Hellllllo Fall!! 
This jacket is going to be on repeat this fall. 
I am absolutely in love with it, and it's so soft too.
 This entire outfit came from my latest Stitch Fix box. If you haven't given it a try yet then I highly suggest you do, especially if you are wanting to try out the newest fall trends. 

I was needing new blanket scarf and this one that was sent is so warm and I love the plaid detail. 
The wedges are the perfect fall shoe for transitioning, I am always in the market for some new shoes. 
If you want to shop this look ask for Kelly and tell her Jessica sent you, you can use the link below.

Fall Gimmes

Here are just a *few* of my favorite fall items this year! Of course I cannot fit them all into one post. 
We are back from the beach and now I've dubbed it officially time to get ready for fall! Today is consisting of cleaning and pulling out all of my fall decor. 
Pumpkins galore!

This week we are in HHI once again for some much needed r&r.
It's nice not having a schedule and being free to go and do whatever we want whenever we want.
 Yesterday I had planned on getting up early, having my coffee on the porch, and then taking Baker on a walk. When I woke up I realized that we had not one grocery item, so I thought I'd make a quick trip to Publix (in my pajamas) to get the essentials. Once I got to the checkout line I realized that I had left my card in my clutch from dinner the night before and had to drive back home to get it. It definitely put a slower start to my morning than I wanted.

So on this gorgeous Saturday morning I actually am enjoying my coffee outside and once I am finished I will take Baker on a serene beach walk.

Happy Saturday!

I also started school back today so prayers are appreciated! I am praying for a great semester just like this summer! 

Happy Monday! 

August Style Share

I am so thrilled to be Le tote's featured blog for their monthly style share! 

Here are a few questions from the post:

Fashion-wise, which season do you prefer — summer or winter?Fall fashion. I feel it’s way more versatile than summer. Here in Alabama it’s so hot that I am usually wearing shorts and a tank throughout the summer but fall and its cooler temperatures gives me a lot more to work with.

What is the best fashion advice you’ve ever received?This is only mildly embarrassing but I believe it was on an episode of Laguna Beach (I know) that one of the girls said “everyday is a runway show” and that idea has kind of stuck with me. I think I interpreted it as everyday there could be someone out there able to gain inspiration out of what you are wearing. I always dress comfortable but I always try to dress in a way that is different or expresses how I am feeling. Clothes are the pre-first impression before the real first impression and I believe they can give a lasting effect on people you meet.

Brunch Chat

-latte from a coffee date with two of my favorite people-

Do you ever get fantastic ideas right as you are about to fall asleep? I feel like most of my great inspirations happen in the morning or late at night.
With that said most of my worries happen late at night too. I can dream up wild scenarios right before I go to bed, things that make me have to get up and grab a drink of water. 
Usually I just pray it out, nothing gets rid of fears like praying to the one who handles it all. 
Since I started blogging I have started sleeping with a pen and notebook next to my bed for impromptu thoughts that happen late at night. Now don't think I actually wake up, turn the light on, and write a novel. It's actually more of a scribble in the dark in hopes that I can read it in the morning. 

This new series titled brunch chat is just that. Little blibs of my thoughts that I would totally have with my friends at brunch. It's my effort to have my blog be more about life and deeper content. I realize these posts do not get as many hits as one of my outfit posts but I feel these are just as important. I hope these brunch chats continue to inspire you just like the rest of my blog. 

Happy Humpday.


Santa Rosa Beach, FL

Reading: I've just started The Girls by Emma Cline and so far (Chapter 3) I'm into it. I only know that it's based in the 60's/70's and it's about a girl that joins a cult, think Charles Manson. I am not really sure what to expect or which way it is going to turn. Have you read this book yet? Is it worth it? I'll be sure to let you guys know once I am finished!
Watching: Taylor and I sat on our bottoms last Saturday and watch the entire Stranger Things series on Netflix. It is awesome! First off, it's set in the 80's (more awesome) and it follows different characters throughout a little town called Hawkins where some creepy events have started to unfold. I need more TV series like these in my life. 
DIY'ing: I have begun to remodel our apartment. Taylor is thrilled. I'm wanting new everything, it's seriously time for an update. What better time than the present!? We need new furniture, bedding, dining room furniture, and rugs. Pictures coming at a later date. 
Planning: My first semester of graduate school is coming to a close soon and I have big plans for the 2 1/2 weeks that I am off. I am going to be doing things that I used to take for granted (example: lay on the couch all day, take Baker to the park, go to a coffee shop and read, mindlessly wander around a bookstore) you know, those are my big plans. I have an entire list that I just can't wait to tackle! Anyhing ideas I should add?
Loving: Back to school! It's just crazy to think that I have friends sending their kids to school! It seems like yesterday I was prepping my first day outfit and wearing my brand new shoes! It's so cute though seeing the first day of school photos.
So I know not far behind is football, turning leaves, and PUMPKIN SPICE!

Happy Tuesday!
