When it comes to fall fashion, I’m a total sucker for all things riding boots. They’re just so fall, amiright? One of the looks I’ve been obsessing over lately is the Sweater + Vest + Jeans + Riding Boots combo. It’s fo sho been my go-to lately. I love how it’s simple and easy to throw together but still looks polished and chic (unnnnless I don’t do my hair, like in these pics. Oops?). The trick though is finding the right pair of riding boots. I picked up these yummies from DSW for a total steal and absolutely looooooove them. Such a great color, great quality, and hello – great price. Ay-oh!

The best part about riding boots though is how many ways there are to wear those bad boys! Pretty sure when I was prego last fall I wore them every single day. And I don’t intend to do much different this season! Here are a few other looks I intend on trying with my new slick boots from DSW. You can shop these looks at the bottom of the post. Woot woot!

Tell me – how are YOU planning on wearing your riding boots this fall? Huh huh huh?

Elbow Patch Times

October 23, 2014



Does anyone hate elbow patches? Is it even possible to do so? Dare I say not. If I could throw an elbow patch (or two) on basically every cardi and blazer I own, pretty sure I’d do that. Right guys? Right? Bueller? Bueller?

This yummy cardi I’m wearing from Ruche (a.k.a. my fave) is low in stock but I think there are still a few left. Otherwise, this one from Asos is very similar. Huzzah! Happy Thursday peeps! xoRuche-Cardi-1

Sugar Love

All you need to know is that this sweater from Sugar Love Boutique is the coziest sweater ever. If it was socially acceptable to wear it all day urrry day, I would. So help me I would do it. Guys, is it Friday yet? It already feels like that kind of week. Sigh… here’s to trying to be optimistic instead of a big fat negative Nancy!

Pumpkin Patch Times

October 14, 2014



Last week we took baby Jack to the pumpkin patch! You guys – will you just look at that little face? I. Die. Don’t worry that I was totally that mom putting her baby on the ground to get the “perfect pic” with little regard for the fact that he was subsequently eating straw and taking a mud bath. NBD. The bigger tragedy was that our camera started acting up shortly after we got there, so I only got a handful of pics of this sweet babe (sniff). Oh well – we’ll be back again. My obsession with fall will undoubtedly lure me back to the pumpkin patch at least 14 more times. And that’s not even weird (riiiiiiiight?).

Hooray for flannels and vests and ankle boots and hats and babies in chambray and pumpkin colored moccs and… ALL. THINGS. FALL.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again – neutrals always win. I find myself gravitating to them all day urrrrry day lately. K, I also have to talk about these heels for a second. I splurged a little (for me) on them because I have been on the hunt for a killer pair of non-patent leather, nude, pointy-toe heels for a hot minute now. I spotted these and knew they were exactly what I was looking for. And I. Was. Right. They’re not the most comfortable things ever, admittedly, but we weren’t really expecting that from a pair of heels that look like this, now were we? The good news it that they look exactly as I was hoping. Huzzah! One thing of the wish list down, a million more to go, right? Or maybs I should stop being such a Coveting Constance all the time. Murrrrrp. If you need a sexy-as-death pair of pointy-toe heels as well, you can buy this exact pair here (in limited sizes), here (also in limited sizes), or here.

This Blazer

October 1, 2014



Photos by KNW Photography

I’ve been wearing it lots. Like an embarrassing amount maybs. The print is yummy but subtle enough to almost act as a neutral. I also love how long it is. Definitely a plus for us shorties who need all the help they can get in elongating any part of their body. Murrrrp.

Lots of cutie graphic blazers (long ones too) here right now. Happy hump day!

These Buttery Booties

September 25, 2014



Like butter, you guys. That’s seriously what these booties feel like. The softest, yummiest leather your heart can imagine. And for the quality, you’d barely believe they cost just over $100. Hashtag worthit. They’re surprisingly comfy too. You can get your hands on them here, herehere, or here. They come in black too. You’re welcome.

Remember how I’m re-working this kimono like it ain’t no thang? It was last seen here when I was like a gazillion months prego and ready to pop. I have to admit it’s a nicer experience wearing this thing when I’m not heavy with child. But hooray for re-working things already in our closets, right? Wooooooot.
