HOW! How is September over? I can’t say I am upset about it. October is the start of cooler weather here and we’ve been given a lot of it lately and that’s not normal for Texas. We have decorated the front porch and the boys are trying to decide what they are going to do for Halloween. We’ve got chili in the crock pot, football on the TV and sports filled weekends…. it’s finally FALL!

I did finally decide to go all fake this year on the front porch. Our porch gets major sunshine in the afternoon and basically burns up anything alive or real out there. I am not sure how my plants are surviving, but I am not touching them because they are thriving! Click here to view this post in your browser for all clickable images.

shop the look: $7 stripe tee (tts) | crop denim (tts / size down if in between for stretch) | sneakers (tts) | bag

Comfy fall pieces is what I am all about. I wore this look to dinner on Friday for a quick trip to try out our new Molina’s Mexican Restaurant. It was delicious! My tote bag made the TOP TEN list for September and I am so glad y’all are loving it as much as I do. I have carried this bag for two years and it gets better with age. It comes with two shoulder straps that are the perfect length for a shoulder bag plus the added long crossbody shoulder strap that is detachable. It makes the perfect everyday classic tote bag.

I also shared these jeans in my recent blog post, Under $60 Denim Picks. They are a great affordable option and have a comfy fit with stretch. I went down one size which is I usually do in this brand because they have a “curvy” fit. My stripe tee is a recent new favorite and for $7 I want to buy all the colors. I am wearing my true size.


10. Leopard sneakers

I am so glad these sneakers came back in stock! You guys grabbed them because sizes are already selling out again! Grab your true size in these. Click here to grab these. If your size happens to be sold out, I rounded up a few similar picks.


9. Target sweaters

I couldn’t decide what print I needed more so I grabbed two of these light weight Target sweaters. The fit is true to size and these are great for the chilly weather that has started rolling in. I wore the outfit on the right for a recent date night and loved pairing it with my favorite booties. I would recommend your true size in this sweater. Click here to grab yours.

other details: crop denim (sized down 1) | low heel booties (tts) | skinny dark wash denim (sized down 1) | booties

*NOTE: I tend to size down in a denim if they have a lot of stretch to them.

8. Amazon white tee

I am always on the hunt for a good tunic tee that works well with leggings and can still be worn with jeans. This Amazon tee was a fave when I shared my Spanx faux leather leggings 20 outfit idea blog post! I sized up to a medium for an oversized fit and to make sure the length was long enough for leggings. I would recommend sizing up unless you are looking for a regular t-shirt fit, then order your true size. I am wearing it above by itself or layers underneath a longer pullover to give you an idea of the length. (I am 5’6 for reference) Click here to grab your white tee.

7. Amazon bag strap

I am glad y’all have loved this leopard bag strap as much as I have! It is just a fun way to mix up your everyday bags, but still keeping it affordable. I grabbed this one about a month or so ago and have love it. The strap is detachable and hooks on to any bag that has hook options. It also is adjustable. Grab your bag strap here.

other details: Camo leggings (tts) | sneakers (tts) | denim jacket (tts)

6. Amazon leopard mules

Shop: leopard mules (size up to next half size if in between)

5. Amazon stripe pillow covers

I have been on the hunt for a neutral pillow for my spindle chairs, and these are it! The quality is fantastic and I love the faux leather stripe. They make a great statement and can mix in with any fall decor. I went with the 20×20 pillow cover size and would recommend it ordering inserts, to go up 1-2 pillow sizes to fill the pillow out. Click here for the options I went with: pillow cover 20×20 / inserts 24×24 I also picked up these solid faux leather pillows covers to mix in.

4. Etsy mask chain +

3. Walmart rain jacket

I never thought a mask chain would be something I would share, but here we are! It is a simple concept and while we are required to wear masks here I am juggling 3 kids and their masks, so to not have to worry about mine is so helpful! I just take it off and it hangs around my neck until I need to put it on again. Click here to grab yours.

Plus this favorite rain jacket is back this year after selling out so fast last year. It is only $21 and my FAVE! This year it comes in 4 colors and the leopard lining is back. I actually picked up the olive green option this year because I am telling you this jacket is so good for the price! Click here to grab yours and I recommend your true size.

2. Old Navy cardigan

A classic cardigan that comes in several colors and fits well is a must for fall. I scooped this one up this year and love this rich Carmel color. I went with a medium for a tad looser fit, but would still recommend your true size. It also comes in several colors, but hurry sizes a going! Click here to grab yours.
