Midnight Blue...




Tunic: Eileen Fisher, similar herehere and perfect for fall | Leggings: J.Crew Factory | Pumps: J.Crew Factory, loving these | Bag: old, similar here and here | Necklace: Francesca's, similar here | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory (similar), kate spade | Lips: MAC Lipglass - Pink Nouveau 

A breezy tunic and leggings dressed up with heels for dinner on the water... Now that the busy season has come to a close in Okoboji, the lake is so calm. It was the perfect night for a cruise around the lake! Silky tunics can be dressed up or down for your mood. Pair this tunic with skinny jeans or even a tight pencil skirt and heels for a glam look! Or you can ditch the pumps for leopard print flats and you'll have a cute and functional work outfit. I'm sure you can tell from yesterday's and today's post that I'm loving this color/pattern combo right now! Thanks for reading!

Color Blast...







Shirt: Gibson Latimer (no longer available), similar here | Jeans: BCBG, craving these for fall | Booties: Maurices, similar here (on sale!) | Purse: old, similar here | Necklace: J.Crew Factory | Bracelets: Charming Charlie, Stella and Dot, old (similar here) | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Nadri | Sunnies: Target | Lips: Liner - Revlon in Nude, Lipstick - Estee Lauder in Beige 


I'm just not ready to give up summer colors yet - it still feels like summer to me! The last time I walked into a department store, they were already setting up decorations for Halloween! And that was maybe three weeks ago.. yikes. I may love fall trends and especially my pumpkin spice lattes, but not until it cools down a little. 

Although it's not officially fall yet, I do think fall colors and accessories are starting to be worn more and more. I'm slowing but surely jumping back into fall with two staples - booties and studded bags. I love these booties because not only are they a great neutral color, but they're also peep toe (great for wearing in the summer months in my humble opinion!). I'm also seeing a ton of studs again for fall, so I've added a cute, oversized bag with studs to make this outfit great for in-between seasons. What are your fall staples?

Labor Day..





Dress: MintLA Boutique, similar here and here| Sandals: Nine West, similar here and here (perfect for fall!) | Necklace: J.Crew Factory (on sale!!!) | Bracelet: Stella and Dot | Clutch: BCBG, similar here | Sunnies: House of Harlow | Lips: Liner - Revlon in Nude, Lipstick - Estee Lauder in Beige 

Hope everyone is having a fun-filled Labor Day! I spent most of the holiday weekend in a bathing suit by the lake. This white and blue midi dress from MintLA Boutique was so fun to wear this weekend, and I can't wait to wear it to my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary in a few weeks. Midi dresses and skirts are so easy to transition into chillier seasons, and the hemline on midi dresses are so classy, you'll be sure to please any crowd, especially grandparents :) You can pair midi dresses with a cute cardigan and heels, or even pair a midi skirt with a lightweight sweater and booties for a put-together fall look. I've linked a few of my favorite midi dresses below. Have a great day!
