Starting with hats and accessories, we were both drawn to these fedora styles that look great on everyone!

Ali-Shaun went NUTS for this cashmere cardigan that you simply slip your arms into and it keeps you warm and stylish.

Off to the races in the dressing room!  I was so curious about this new to the sale brand of denim, Pistola.  I really liked this distressed pair with chewed hem and ripped knees.  The color is a pretty light wash and the bootcut leg isn’t too wide.

This sweater was relaxed goodness.  It has a drop shoulder with functional buttons and a collar to dress it up.

Ali-Shaun wasn’t a fan of the jeans on her, but I thought she’d like them more with a heel. What do you think?

I’m a big fan of sleeveless sweaters, especially in Houston and I liked the simplicity of this one with the v-neck.  In the Fall, you can layer a long sleeve tee or button down underneath.

Rails flannels are back!  We both LOVE these tops!  They’re cut perfectly and feel great on your body. I preferred the blue and Ali-Shaun was drawn to the darker blue with a hint of pink.

Isn’t this pink sweater fun?! I adore the poppy color and the square neck combined with the puffy sleeves.  I think it’s perfect for a Fall/Winter date night.  Ali-Shaun looks great in dark green, so this cardigan was meant for her.  She’s more comfortable with longer tops, but I pointed out that wearing a shorter top (or doing a front tuck) elongates the look of your legs.

Pretty as a peach!  This wrap cardigan can be tied in a bow or left long, but I think I prefer the bow.  Ali-Shaun’s floral peplum top looked great on her!  Again that shorter length top and those flare jeans gave her legs for days.  Even more if she was wearing a pointy toe shoe, but she was CRAZY for those clogs!

This smocked flowy style top is so easy to wear and the color is perfect for heading into Fall.  You can wear it to the office with pants or on the weekend with jeans.  The jeans were good with a solid dark wash (great for dressing up or casual Friday at work), but I think I’d need to size down to get a better fit.

I found several “wear now” pieces including this puff sleeve button front top.  It’s got a slight texture to it and can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with a skirt or pants.

The chunky knit slides are back in a monochromatic chain that’s very cool.  I opted for the classic tan that will go with everything, but all of the colors are good!

This is the Rails top I ended up getting this year.  I love the color and gauzy texture.  It looks great with dark denim, white and also black.  You can also wear it now with shorts.

We found this longer open cardigan with pockets that we both liked.  The ribbed knit of the sleeves and hem are a fun touch.

For a shorter/chunkier cardigan option, this is a pretty choice.  I really liked the pretty blue color.

Here’s another ‘wear now’ option.  I’m digging the square neck and puffed sleeves, plus the contrasting ribbed knit front and solid knit sleeve.

This little cardigan set that’s flirty and feminine.  It’s on the crop side, so you may want to wear it with a high waist jean.

I’m wearing the fan favorite “Diana” Kut from the Kloth Jeans. These are a great budget friendly brand and skinny style with tons of comfortable stretch.

Ali-Shaun was crazy for this outfit- a basic black sweater, comfy/flattering dark wash jeans without any rips or distressing and the sneakers she’ll wear all the time.  They even have a cool sole- each style representing a different city.

We both bought these relaxed style UGGs that are so comfy and the perfect option for when you want a flat UGG, but don’t want to wear the fur lined ones.

This waffle knit top is a great basic and the raw edge trim gives it a modern vibe.  This washed green color looks good with so much, but the white one was a bit sheer.

Holy Barefoot Dreams!  I’m CRAZY for this white cardigan and Jordan has already tried to steal it from me!  I tend to like this style over the regular circle cardigan because it’s a little bit lighter weight and comes with the tie belt.

I didn’t get a pic of Ali-Shaun in hers, but she loved this one.

LOVE these jeans!!  They’re by Wit & Wisdom and made with the ab solution technology that fits and flatters and comfortably tucks you in.  They have a high waist and a cool, sloping hem. Only $58!

I wasn’t sure I’d like this mustard color on me- it’s a no brainer for brunettes though!  A great basic for your Fall wardrobe.

    Tried the square neck sweater you’re wearing in pink above in an XS in lilac and the sleeves didn’t stay up on me at all – prob similar in size as you- do you think it was stretched out or are you doing your best ro keep the sleeves from falling down?Thanks!

      I do think this sweater fit a little large, I could have sized down.
