Affordable Fall Finds

Happy Monday loves! Fall is officially here, and we are thrilled. We're kicking off the season with some of our favorite affordable fall finds - most of the items on this list are under $100, talk about a steal! Hope you had a great weekend - you may have seen my Instagram post over the weekend, but in case you missed it...I'm moving to NYC! (more on that later this week) Have a great day xo! 

Black on Black

TGIF! What do you all have planned for the weekend? It's supposed to be beautiful in Chicago and it's my best friends birthday, so it will be a fun one!
This is my ideal outfit - black on black. It's simple yet chic!
I love the leather and antique brass on the Rocco bag.
The perfect fall hat - I recently picked it up from the BP section at Nordstrom.
Have a fab weekend!

Nouveau Grunge

Hope everyone is having a great week! Today is my Friday - I'm leaving on a jet plane (red eye) this evening- stay tuned for an exciting announcement! Thanks to everyone who has been visiting our insta shop (@shopsomewherelately), it's been so fun, and we are planning to keep it going, so be sure to check it out. I'll be posting more items next week. 

On to today's look - I recently picked up this skirt at Zara, and have already worn it a couple times - once for my husband's birthday dinner at Studio, and another for my girl Andee's birthday in LA. I can already tell it's going to be a staple in my fall wardrobe. Definitely grab a pencil skirt for fall - you won't regret it. Currently, I'm feeling leather and plaid - I will link to some of my favorites at the bottom. 
My husband gave me this bag last year for Christmas, and I haven't used it much until recently - I'm really glad leopard is making a comeback. 
It was so windy yesterday, so I opted for an easy ponytail. 
But sometimes a pony won't solve all of your problems. 
We're almost to Friday lovers, have a great weekend! I'll be on IG this weekend sharing pics of my getaway. XO

Power Salad

Happy hump day loves! I've been on a health kick lately (just in time for winter, ha!) and have been eating lots of fruits, veggies and protein. I just whipped up this salad for lunch and it's a new favorite! It's filling and healthy! The only ingredients you need are:
black beans - white corn - red onion - mango - avocado - fresh lime


Weekend Recap: Our Laguna Beach Vacation

Last week was my husband's 30th birthday, so we took a (mini) vacation to Laguna Beach to celebrate. We live super close, so this was more of a stay-cation for us, but staying at Montage made it feel like a real vaca! If you are considering visiting Southern California, or live in the area and looking for a little R&R, I would highly suggest staying here! The service is out of this world, the grounds are gorgeous, and it is beyond relaxing. 

I lived in this hat all weekend (25% off SALE at J.Crew right now) 
Everything is beautifully presented - even the champs bucket came with fresh flowers. 
Fish tacos and margs poolside. 
This hidden spot on the beach reminds me so much of Cabo, it's stunning. 
We spent a greater portion of the weekend poppin' bottles on our balcony. My guy is extremely difficult to shop for (I'm sure many of you can relate), but he loved these bracelets I picked out for him (black / silver). 
Cheers! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! 

Happy Monday

Hi loves! Thought I would start off the week with an inspirational quote...I've been feeling really inspired lately and things are starting to fall in place. Remember, you can do anything you put your mind to. Chase your dreams and never doubt yourself. Happy Monday:)

p.s we are cleaning out our closets! head over to @shopsomewherelately to shop!

My Moody Wishlist

I'm calling this my moody wishlist because most everything on here seems very moody, no? (with the exception of one white blazer).  None-the-less, I'm loving it all, it feels very fall-esque...maybe I'm just wishful thinking. Happy Friday, ladies! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sweater Weather

Hello lovers! I'm currently laying in bed, listening to the rain, drinking tea and blogging. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing morning! This weather has been so up and down day its 90 degrees and the next its in the 60's. It was pretty chilly while I was home so I took full advantage of the sweater weather! I recently picked up this BB Dakota sweater from Nordstrom and loveee it. It's so warm and versatile, I'm thinking next time I will style it with a belt and some wedge booties to dress it up a little.
 I think I mentioned in my last post, I live in these booties! The cut-out trend is huge right now and the gold adds a little extra flare! 
 Aviators - always.

Indian Summer

Okay - so it's not really an Indian summer when you live in California, but the weather has been beautiful lately, so we decided to spend an afternoon at the pool soaking up the sun. 
I've had this dress for a few months, but haven't had a chance to wear it yet. The pool was the perfect place - it's flowy, comfortable, but not too lightweight. I don't know about you, but I don't always wear my bikini to the pool, I like to just put my feet in, or relax on one of the loungers (they keep our pool at -30 degrees, so I'm always too wimpy to get all the way in anyway). 
This bracelet is one of my favorites - it's the screw cuff from Miansai. My husband surprised me with it on our most recent trip to Miami - he bought a matching one for himself. We go to Miami once a year, it's where we met, and got engaged - so it holds a special place in our hearts. 
I purchased this dress from Gilt, but just found it on Amazon majorly on sale! The color I'm wearing is coral, and a size small - it definitely runs on the larger side.

Hiii guys! I just got back from a long weekend at home in South Dakota! It's so nice getting out of the city every once in awhile and enjoying some peace and quiet with my family. It wasn't under the best circumstances but we ended up having a great time!
A little different from the city!
As you can imagine, South Dakota is pretty laid back style wise, so you don't need to get too crazy with your outfits! I wore this Zara dress to run errands and visit a couple friends! 
I love the sleeves and collar on this dress...its so casual and comfortable, just my style!
How great are these JC booties? I think I'm going to pull the trigger and get them in brown as well!
