FALL BRACELET LAUNCH WEDNESDAY!
You guys! I’m sooooooooooo excited.
My 2nd bracelet launch with Victoria Emerson is this coming Wednesday! 5 days, baby!
AND Y’ALL. It’s SO good.
The fall line is amazing, and I just know that y’all are going to go absolutely crazy over these bracelets. If you’ve been following along for awhile, you know that their double wrap bracelets are a favorite of mine. Last year I wore the leopard double wrap and the cognac double wrap on repeat, so when we agreed on a fall collection, I knew immediately how I wanted to modify the bracelets a bit. I’ve got one word: STUDS.
The collection includes camo (as seen below), leopard, cheetah, cognac leather, and a black and white leather wrap…and all but the camo NOW HAVE STUDS! YESSSSSSSSS! STUDS!
You can choose between circle brass studs or pyramid studs, but I’m predicting that many of you will want both. I love stacking them and mixing them, and styling them all fall long is going to be a blast. You are going to want these bracelets!
I’m SO PROUD of this launch, and I can hardly wait for y’all to see all the options. Oh! And this collection has 2 pairs of huggie earrings as well (see below). Y’all know I love a great huggie earring, and these have round and pyramid studs that coordinate with the bracelets.
I’m telling you…mark your calendars and get ready to start throwing stuff in your cart. Y’all were so sweet and supportive of the 1st launch, but I just know you are going to be extra supportive of this one. And of course, they are going to be BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE! WooHoo!
BRODY IS 8
Time is a thief, and Brody is 8. He had a swimming party with all of his friends, but family went over for a family dinner right after the party on Saturday night so we could celebrate the birthday boy too!
There might be 5 years between these boys (Carter turns 13 next month!), but they have so much fun together.
I know I’m biased, but I think these 3 boys are the cutest boys to have ever lived. Look at Bennett cheesing it up for the camera! Oh, and the 2 big boys threw off their shirts while participating in a wrestling match on the trampoline. Because of course. Haha!
GRAPHIC TEE OUTFITS
Did you see Monday’s post? I thought it was a lot of fun! I shared 9 graphic tees, and I styled 3 of them in fall outfits. You saw the outfits in flat lays on Monday, but today you are going to see the outfits on me!
Here are links for all the tees below:
And now for the outfits!
This Have a Willie Nice Day tee makes me smile. It’s incredibly soft, and I love the color. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
It’s so cute on it’s own, but it will also look great with a cardi or jacket thrown on top.
See!!! Look how great it is with this fun military jacket!
This is the military jacket that I had on my Fun Fall Finds collage a couple of weeks ago…and now that I have it…I have to say it is definitely a FUN FALL FIND! It’s lightweight with just a bit of stretch. It has button closures, which I thought I didn’t like at first, but I never zip up a jacket so it’s actually fine. And I really do like the look of the buttons.
It also has an internal drawstring that allows you to cinch in the waist and customize the fit. The tone on tone stars make it interesting and I of course love the collar. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium, but I actually have it cinched up quite a bit…so I think a small would be a better fit. I guess I would say that it runs on the big side because I would typically take a medium in a jacket like this.
I bought myself a pair of super similar booties from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. I believe I got them for around $89 (but they are now $129), and they are Steve Madden. You can still find them HERE and some sizes are available again in the neutral and they seem to still be well stocked in the snakeskin.
For those that no longer have their size available or don’t want to pay that price, I found a great alternative on Amazon! Click HERE for the chunky booties seen below. Mine are the “light brown”, but there are several other very similar neutrals to choose from as well as white, cognac, black, snakeskin and others. The block heel, the pointy toe, and the deep cut out on the side all look awesome. And listen, I clicked around, and all sizes and colors appear to be UNDER $50. What a deal!
I think they are quite comfortable and they are true to size for me. If you are often between sizes, I think I would recommend going down 1/2 a size.
I don’t even like coffee, but I think this coffee tee is adorable. It’s also super soft with some stretch, so it’s a cute and comfy fit. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. It comes in several colors, all are under $20, and some are under $15. The reviews are excellent.
The chunky cardi was in my Fun Fall Finds collage too, but I’m sad to say that even though I love the color and the chunky knit, I didn’t love the fit on me. I felt it was too bulky, so I actually think a cardigan like this one would be better. It’s not a cable knit, but I think it has a more flattering fit.
If you were following along last year, you know I became a huge fan of fashion sneakers. I had several pairs and wore them all the time. I’ve been looking this year for a new pair for us, and this pair caught my eye. The description says they are super cushy and ultra supportive, and I would have to agree. And I just love the color combo. I think the brown, white, blush, and rust palette will be so great with all of my fall outfits.
They are true to size for me, but I will say that they are initially a bit hard to get on. I have to wiggle my foot around and do some tugging. If you are between sizes, I would go up a 1/2. I got my true size, but I definitely had to loosen the laces up to be able to get my foot in. However, once the shoe is on, they are VERY comfy. Like reallllllllly comfy.
Again, I don’t like coffee, but I had to order and try this tee for all of my coffee loving friends! “Hello Darkness My Old Friend” made me laugh out loud. I love it styled here with all neutrals. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
This cardi is a favorite and I own it in several colors. It’s just a great basic. Perfect for jeans, but just as perfect for office wear.
I bought a pair of neutral wedge sneakers that I absolutely loved several years ago, and I still love them, but I wanted to find a current pair for y’all for this fall. I find that I love throwing on a wedge sneaker with a lot of my casual fall outfits with both jeans and joggers.
These wedge sneakers are an incredible deal. All colors available are under $35, and many are under $30 right now. The ones I have are the “taupe”, and I like the perforations on the side and the band across the top. The fit is really cute and they are super comfy. True to size for me.
Also on my Fun Fall Finds collage, the jewelry I’m wearing above and that you see below.
layered necklace – The necklace is really 3 necklaces in 1. They aren’t attached, so you can wear each of them on their own or you can wear both of them together for a layered look. It’s got fabulous reviews, it’s a great price, and many of you can get it same day or next day! I love mine, and it’s ONLY $12.99!
chunky hoop earrings – These were recommended to me by a reader, and I’m so happy to have them. They are simple and classic, but they are chunky so they make a bit of a statement. And you can’t beat the price. If you prefer a slimmer profile, these hoops are awesome too.
MADEWELL JEANS – THAT’S GONNA BE A NO FOR ME DOG
I love this sweater, and you’ll see more of it in a future post (I’m wearing a small), but this isn’t about the sweater.
It’s about the jeans.
This should come as no surprise, but these jeans were also on my Fun Fall Finds collage. So far they were the only item I ordered from the collage that I ended up not liking.
I want to love these jeans. I PLANNED on loving these jeans.
I do not love these jeans, at least not on me.
They are the Madewell slim boy jeans.
For me, there’s not enough stretch, they are too high at the waist, and the zipper is just way too long for my liking. I think they look too manly on me. And even if I liked the waist and hip area, I wouldn’t know what shoes to wear with them. I tried booties, and the jeans were too long for booties. I tried sneakers, and they looked too clunky.
Every single time I try to venture from from Wit and Wisdom jeans, I come up short.
I get requests for office appropriate outfits on occasion, and I found a couple of pieces that I think many of you will love for office wear.
Now, I will say the floral blouse is a little low cut on me. You can’t really tell here, but it is, at least for the office. I love the colors and the pattern (it comes in other options as well), and you know I love the longer sleeve length. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
These black pants are made of ponte knit with plenty of stretch. I think they’re great. Y’all probably remember that I flipped out over these Wit and Wisdom black pants last year, but sadly they only have 1 size left. I’ve been looking high and low for similar pants, and I think I’ve finally found a great option with these! For size reference, I’m wearing a 4, but I will say that they are definitely on the tight side.
The pants also come in navy and maple! I know there are some of you that will end up buying these pants in all 3 colors for sure.
Right now I bet you’re like, did she just say “dental floss”?
Yes. Yes I did.
Y’ALL. THIS DENTAL FLOSS IS LEGIT.
That’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.
There’s something about this double row of floss that makes these little flossers NEXT LEVEL. You will be both astounded and horrified at what these little babies will get out of your teeth. Oral health is so important, and I’m so happy I’ve added these into my nighttime routine. Carter uses them every night too, and I’m certain his flossing score at his dental appointment will go from a B to an A+!

MAKE UP BRUSHES
I can’t remember when I bought the one Artis makeup brush I own, but I think it was around Christmas. I went for the big foundation brush, and my goodness I fell in love. But listen, the one brush was like $80. #WHOAH I splurged because it was for a sponsored beauty post, and I thought y’all would be interested in me reviewing it.
I about fell over when I saw this dupe set on Amazon.
The spendy makeup brush can be found at Nordstrom HERE, but the Amazon set can be found HERE and it’s UNDER $10! If you’ve never used brushes like this, the make up goes on soooooo smoothly and the application looks flawless. The reviews on these brushes are FANTASTIC (people can’t hardly believe the price).

They’ve talked about everything from plastic surgery to skin care to swimsuits to friendship to the enneagram (on the latest show). I’m so proud of them! I love to listen when folding laundry, straightening the house, or when on long car rides. #myfriendshaveapodcast #soflippingcool
