Flannels for Fall & Instagram...

Flannel: old, similar here (under $20) and here (under $100) | T-shirt: Halogen | Denim: Articles of Society (only $54!) | Pumps: BCBG (no longer available), very similar under $100 | Bag: Tory Burch, similar under $60 here | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Nordstrom (only $10!) | Necklace: Kate Spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Alex and Ani | Ring: Madewell | Lipstick: MAC - Creme Cup | iPhone Case: Kate Spade

It's not even 7am and I've already had quite the morning... let's just say I showed up at the gym for my 5:45 spin class only to find out the class was cancelled for the week until after Labor Day! I'm not gonna lie, I was a little excited about it because it gave me time to run home, make a pot of coffee and get a blog post done. Not bad for making the best out of the most annoying of circumstances! :) Now that we are a day away from September, flannels are my casual go-to for more warmth. I love a good cardigan, but there are so many adorable flannels out with a lot of color options and not just your typical fall colors. Mine is old, however Forever 21 has a ton of cute affordable options, and J.Crew has some investment-worthy options that I'm craving too. 

I also want to comment on these distressed jeans... holy cow they are amazing! These are my first real pair of distressed denim, and they aren't ripping or tearing like I thought they might (given the super budget friendly price tag - $54!). I'm a little obsessed and they are my weekend favorite right now. For sizing, I got a 28 and they are true to size once you break them in a little, just don't dry them!

In the next week or so I'll be doing an awesome giveaway on Instagram, so be sure to follow me @libby_glaser... just a heads up ;)

Boyfriend Blazer...

Blazer: Mural | Tee: Halogen | Denim: Paige, similar under $100 | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Bag: Tory Burch, similar under $100 | Necklace: Kate Spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Alex & Ani | Ring: Madewell | Lipgloss: NARS - Turkish Delight

What's better than a boyfriend blazer? A pink boyfriend blazer! One reason I prefer boyfriend blazers over structured ones is because they are usually longer in length and in the sleeves. I usually roll my sleeves anyways, but this blazer has extra long sleeves and it would be perfect for those of you with longer arms! I recently wore this out to dinner and I received quite a few compliments on the color! If you're not into bright pink, it comes in a lot of other colors (black, pastel pink, sherbet, teal and white!!) and I'm also obsessing over this adorable blazer with a cape - it would be perfect for date night or girls night out this fall and winter! I ordered it in a small and it gave me the slouchy look I was hoping for. 
On to something a little deeper... I want to leave you today with a quote from the Facebook page ProThirtyOne (written by Samantha Ponder): "Happiness, in my opinion, isn't a worthwhile ultimate goal. There is no happy without sad, no rejoicing without mourning. I want peace. Peace in struggle and triumph, loss and victory. Happiness is free, and it's available everywhere..."

Although buying a new boyfriend blazer might give you initial happiness, I hope you find peace in the confidence you'll receive from my blog's uplifting messaging. And that, my friends, is one of the few things you'll find on here that's FREE! Have a great Wednesday and thanks so much for reading :)

Labor Day Inspo...

A little inspiration for your Tuesday! I love an all-white look for Labor Day, but don't let the old wives tale fool you, I'll be wearing lots of white after the holiday :) Have a great day!

That Fall Feeling...

Jacket: Forever 21 (under $50!) | Dress: J.Crew (no longer available), similar | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Marc Jacobs (no longer available), similar under $100 | Hat: Nordstrom (under $30!) | Necklace: Kate Spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Alex and Ani, J.Crew Factory | Ring: Madewell | Earrings: Nordstrom 

A little chill is in the air, and I couldn't be happier about it! Light jackets, scarves and floppy hats are all on my radar for the upcoming fall months, and why not add a few of them into the same outfit?? This jacket from Forever 21 looks so chic and is at a great price point. The blush shade is also one of my favorites, and it pairs nicely with maroon (another perfect fall color!). Also if you couldn't tell, the day these photos were taken it was super windy out, and my hat from Nordstrom definitely helped keep the hair out of my face! I'm finding more and more reasons to wear it now that fall is approaching! :)

What are your go-to fall pieces? Thanks for reading!

Cool Summer Nights with Lilly Pulitzer...

Top: Lilly Pulitzer c/o | Denim: 7FAM, similar distressed option under $60 | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Lilly Pulitzer c/o | Sunnies: Madewell | Necklace: Kate Spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Alex and Ani, J.Crew Factory | Ring: Madewell | Lips: Lipstick - MAC Creme Cup, Lipgloss - NARS Turkish Delight

Now that summer is winding down and the nights are getting cooler, I gravitate towards lightweight sweaters and tunics to keep the chill away. I tend to get cold everywhere I go actually, especially at work! When looking for fall basics I typically go for neutrals and black options, but sometimes it's fun to mix it up with a bright print! Lilly Pulitzer is my go-to for colorful tops and dresses that are perfect for transitioning into cooler months. I love that all their prints are original and fresh, and they definitely give off that South Beach, tropical vibe! Every time I wear something Lilly I'm instantly in a great, lighthearted mood! :) I especially love that there's so many options for cooler weather, like their Elsa tops (what I'm wearing above) and their 3-quarter sleeve dresses.  For sizing, I got a medium in the tunic and probably could have gotten a small.

OK guys, I need your advice. I've been doing spin classes for almost a year but I took a break when I was crazy busy with work this month and now I'm not as motivated to get back into it. I definitely need to switch up my routine!! I've heard hot yoga is amazing but the classes here are only available during the work day (ugh). Any suggestions on your favorite fitness classes? I'd love to hear your suggestions :)

Pops of Red...

Adding pops of red to your look is an effortless and bold way to incorporate some color with your fall neutrals. I'm especially loving that Sephora lipstick - it goes on matte and it's only $14! Have a great day and thanks for reading!

Front Porch Loving...

Dress: Target | Sandals: old, similar | Bag: Tory Burch | Watch: JORD c/o | Bracelet: Alex & Ani 

This front porch reminds me of the song Mayberry from Rascal Flatts - any of you heard it?? If you haven't, go listen to it now and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about! :) Today's a quick one - happy Monday and have a great week!

Navy and Blush...

This time of year, I'm all about incorporating my summer staples with fall shades. I'm gravitating towards hues of navy for fall, and blush pink adds a nice feminine touch to the mix! This leather skirt is at the top of my fall wish list - it's seriously to die for! Have a great Wednesday :)

Summer Skirt...

Tank: Topshop | Skirt: J.Crew Factory | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: J.Crew, similar | Necklace: Kate Spade | Bracelet: Kate Spade | Lipstick: MAC - Creme Cup with Bare Minerals gloss on top

Now that the weekend is over, my life is a little more normal again. Last week I was coordinating a week-long event and then had a bachelorette party over the weekend. I could definitely use a nap, but it was so much fun! If you were following along on snapchat (@libbyglaser), you probably got a glimpse of my outfit and hair (more on my hair later - stay tuned!). I wore this skirt with a white off the shoulder top and it added the right amount of class to a fun weekend look. It would really work well for most settings, whether it be casual, a party, church, etc. Also can we talk about my Topshop tank??!! Insert heart-eyed emoji. It comes in so many colors, and its under $30!

Transitioning into Fall...

Dress: J.Crew Factory | Sandals: Tommy Hilfiger | Bag: BCBG | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Earrings: J.Crew Factory | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Kate Spade | Necklace: Kate Spade | Lipstick: MAC - Up the Amp

Is it just me or is this summer really hot and humid?? I've been ready for the fall months since July - riding boots, scarves and hot cocoa are calling my name - however the weather isn't cooperating with my fall daydreams right now. In the mean time, I'm incorporating my favorite bright colors with pops of fall shades to transition my wardrobe right into the new season! This dress from J.Crew Factory has a lot of bright colors, but I'm also loving the deep purple and navy shades that make this dress great for both summer and winter. It would be adorable with boots and a navy blazer in the fall! Another easy way to add fall shades into the mix is in your lipstick! I'm wearing MAC's Up the Amp, which is a buildable purple shade, and I wear this shade a ton in the fall months. I also wear MAC's Rebel, a burgundy shade, in the fall quite a bit, and it pairs nicely with all-white, monochrome looks.

 I am SO excited it's the weekend because today I'm traveling to Des Moines for my friend Mara's bachelorette party!! Bring on the champagne, games and fun times! Hope you all have fun plans for the weekend too!! 

Thanks for reading :)
