Stuff I'm Swooning Over

Stuff I'm Swooning Over

GiGi New York leather purse

Michele black watch

Ray Ban ray ban wayfarer

Opi nail polish (My
$19 -

Rodan + Fields Night Renewing Serum

Currently, these are a few of my favorite things. First and foremost, if you are a book nerd (like myself) you HAVE TO order or pick up #GIRLBOSS. I read this book in two days and felt like I could seriously take over the world after reading. It's awesome!
I'm loving the new fall colors Gigi New York has out now. This kelly green clutch is gorgy and if you sign up for their newsletter, you get 10% off! I obviously also suggest getting a gold monogram.
There is a good chance you will see me wearing my Steve Madden leopard calf-hair pumps, Michele watch and green Ray Bans ALOT this fall! These gems are the perfect items to have year round and can all be accessorized for fancy or casual.
Last but most important are my beauty loves. I recently became introduced to OPI's My Vampire is Buff.  Such a great nude! I used the shellac version and am obsessed! My face is wrinkle free thanks to Rodan + Fields Night Renewing Serum aka miracle serum. These tiny capsules are filled with retinol making your face feel like silk while smoothing out fine lines and making wrinkles vanish....I won't ever do without. I figure if this is good enough for Jennifer's good enough for me.
Oh and pumpkin spice lattes are now available!!!! If this isn't good news I don't know what is!!!
Hope everyone has a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

There is nothing that tops off a fall look like an amazing pair of booties! Skinny jeans, skirt, dress and even distressed jean shorts can look even better when you have style on your feet.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a thigh high boot but booties tend to make your legs look longer and are most times more practical.  I am really into the open toe and fringe booties this season and together the two are dynamite!  I wear booties year round so don't think of them as being a one-season shoe when they are actually a versatile investment :)

Fall Favs At Banana

Yesterday I went in Banana and OMG! Of course my eyes were drawn to every stitch of leather! You guys have no idea how badly I am wanting fall weather!! The first item I tried on and LOVED were the Sloan-Fit leather Ankle pants (#3 up top)...TO DIE FOR! Leather in front and black Sloan pant in the back complete with ankle zippers. I can't wait to pair these with a cream blouse or graphic tee and booties! (NOTE: due to leather front, you may want to size up in these beauties.)  I definitely encourage everyone to head on over to Banana ASAP to gather up these now online with code: BRBALL for 35% your purchase! I may need to go back today!

Around Town

jeans: Gap / tee: Southward Apparel / heels: Piperlime (old) / bag: Tory Burch (old) / sunnies: Fendi (old) / earrings: Kendra Scott / Necklace: Anthropologie (old) / bangles & ring: David Yurman / watch: Kate Spade / lipstick: MAC lickable

This is honestly one of my favorite looks. This outfit can go casual to evening chic with just the change of some accessories and foot wear. To make this a little more casual, I would throw on my black Chuck Taylor sneakers or a pair of casual wedges. These Gap legging jeans are AMAZING and I actually cut them myself (my first DIY project!) need paying $200 + for the J Brand pair! This tee from Southward Apparel is SO comfy and cool. It looks adorable under a boyfriend blazer with layered necklaces. You could actually wear this outfit any season by adding a jacket or changing heels to booties. I plan on making this work all year long!
