Hi friends! How’s your week going? We’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from the weekend and I’m not mad about it! We went from sweltering hot to downright cold overnight, and now it looks like we’re in for a lot of rain. I know the weather has been particularly hard on so many lately with devastating effects. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone and especially those close to home in central Texas who have been affected by terrible floods. It’s hard to watch people suffer in any part of the world, so we are donating to charities we trust so people can get help with recovering as quickly as possible.
On a much lighter note, today’s post is a fun fashion one. Today, Macy’s
and ShopStyle are sponsoring this post to show off some of my favorite darling Fall styles. As much as I love getting all dolled up for a night out or date night, “cute and comfy” fits my casual lifestyle better and is much more practical for everyday.
3 CUTE & CASUAL FALL OUTFITS
My mission when popping into Macy’s was to find Fall outfits you’d look and feel amazing in. I also wanted options that would be easy to run around in while keeping you comfortable. If you don’t shop Macy’s very often, you’re in for a treat because they have a great women’s selection with a wide range of size options and really awesome sales. Right now, you can shop everything on Macy’s for 25% off during their Customer Appreciation Sale, using code THANKS. In fact, I found so many things, it was hard to narrow it down!
For all of these outfits, I started with one great pair of jeans
. I switched up the tops, shoes and accessories/bags. I know for most of us, jeans are the easiest thing to wear casually. I always like to show you more than one outfit in a post, so I have three for you today!
I’m seriously thinking that we all need a little bit of plaid in our lives right about now. Something about plaid and pumpkins just goes together like peanut butter and jelly!
Are you as smitten with this plaid button down top as I am?! I love that it’s short sleeve (with ruffles) so that we can wear it now, even if it’s a still a little bit warm where you are. The pink, grey, and white color combo is so feminine and pretty, don’t you think?
TOP FIT: TTS, wearing XXS
I picked up the grey in the top with my booties. I’m so happy we got had a cold front come through this week that made wearing booties feel totally normal. I’m also crazy for these booties
– especially in the cognac color.
I’ve been buying this brand of jeans
for years and they are always stylish and very well made. I still have all of mine and they look good as new.
This particular pair is a darker denim wash with a mid-rise. If I had to choose one pair of jeans that are the most versatile, it would be this style/color. Because they are a darker wash, skinny style (but not too body conscious), they’ll be easy to dress up or down. You can easily wear them to work on casual Friday with a smart blouse or layered with a blazer and still look professional.
JEANS FIT: The jeans were too long on me, so I cut them with a scissors and haven’t gotten hemmed yet. Other than that, they fit true to size, and I’m wearing 25/o.
When I was shopping at Macy’s, I fell in love with two pair of super cute, comfy and stylish slip on sneakers. As much as I love the height heels and wedges give me, sometimes you really just want to wear sneakers!
But first, let’s talk about this adorable heart top. The heart part is silver sequin #sofancy! But, the fancy part is contrasted with the casual sweatshirt material. It’s on the thin side, so not super heavy, and the heart part isn’t at all scratchy. The sleeves are also prerolled to that perfect bracelet length, so great for showing off some arm jewelry!
Note: I haven’t washed mine yet, but it is machine washable and the positive reviews said it machine washes well.
Sweatshirt Fit: TTS and on the relaxed side, I’m wearing XS.
But honestly, the sneakers
! In my favorite color grey! With ruffles!! Shut.up! I beelined for these as soon as I saw them. I’m all about the ease of a slip on sneaker and wore my black pair
all year since getting them last year. Now, I love this lighter grey color for all the wardrobe options.
Sneakers Fit: They are super comfortable and cushiony and fit TTS.
Now this outfit just makes me happy! Maybe the sweatshirt brings me back to my childhood days of drawing rainbows everywhere and because #leopard!
And the sweatshirt is a hoodie! Why does that make me like it even more?! It’s a waffle knit texture on the body with soft arms.
Sweatshirt Fit: TTS, wearing XS.
And I can’t forget this leopard sneakers! Y’all loved them when you got a sneak peek of our front porch
! They are by Kate Spade for Keds
and just so comfy and cute! And guess what, on sale for $64
, they’re normally $110!
Sneakers Fit: They run slightly small, I sized up 1/2
By the way, my talented friend Tisha took these pictures at Cornelius Nursery in Houston and they had such an amazing selection of pumpkins, flowers and decor. They even had a ton of adorable and unique Christmas decor inside. If you’re in Houston, definitely check it out- it’s a fun place to take the kids too!
I can’t even tell you how much I appreciated finding these awesome jeans, comfy sneakers and cute tops that really fit my busy work from home, mom lifestyle! Remember, now through October 21st, you can shop Macy’s 25% off Customer Appreciation Sale using Code THANKS!
I hope this was helpful for you too! Now tell me, are you off to get yourself some slip on sneaks?!
Have a great day friends!
