Fall-Inspired Athleisure Wear

Hello, hello, friends! Long time no see. My sincere apologies for the long blog absence last week. I woke up Tuesday with the worst double ear infection I've had in years and it totally knocked me out of the game. Phew! It's still hanging on today but at least my head no longer feels like a water-filled balloon haha. 

I've been meaning to share this fun monochromatic, a little bit edgy, fall-inspired athleisure look for quite some time now. I snagged this hooded leather jacket (under $100) in August and have been praying for cooler temps so I can start wearing it regularly. And how cute does it look with a simple white teeleggings, and sneakers?! Definitely planning to share more athleisure wear in the coming weeks.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! I was planning to have this post up last Friday but sadly didn't get to it before Saturday and Sunday rolled around... #badblogger... so here it is today! 

J and I spent Saturday at Mountain Lake Lodge where they filmed Dirty Dancing - it literally looked just like it did in the movie! Two of our friends got married and the hotel & property were their venue of choice. Which was super convenient because after all of the festivities were over we were able to stay the night at the lodge. Unfortunately, it rained towards the end of the night and into the morning so we didn't get to do too much exploring. The wedding was beautiful though! It was in a rustic barn with tons of twinkle lights. 


Six Affordable Fall Wardrobe Basics

There's nothing I love more than must-have Fall basics. Pieces that can be worn day in and day 
out in different ways, with different items you already own or have your eye on. Shopping for cool weather staples now will make getting ready later in the season so much easier! Plus, stores usually put out some of the best clothing and accessories at the end of the Summer and things sell out fast, so make sure to take a look at what you're in need of soon. I love going through my wardrobe season to season because I always forget what I have and it keeps me from buying duplicates or similar pieces. 

Today I put together a chic casual outfit that is easy to replicate full of items that are affordable and sure to be worn on repeat as the temperatures begin to drop.


Labor Day Sales You'll Want To Shop

It's hard to believe Labor Day will be here Monday. Time to put those white pants away! JK I don't follow those stilly rules. And to be honest I'm quite excited for LD this year as it marks the (almost) end of Summer and the beginning of all things Fall and hopefully cooler weather (please please!). It's been in the 90's here in southwest Virginia and I'm just about over it. Plus, I look like a crazy lady running around town with my thermal tops and boots... yes, that's been my attire haha!

Since tons of sales have started, and we are going camping for the weekend, I figured I would go ahead and post as many LABOR DAY SALES as I could find. I will make sure and add to the list on Monday but this way you can get a head start. 

Even my cute pink lounge set is ON SALE!

#tgif, babes! 

Today's post has been a long time coming and I'm so excited to finally sit down and do a BEAUTY Q&A. I get quite a few makeup and hair questions on social media every day, many of which are the same or similar, so I thought I'd go through most of those here. I hope this post can serve as a resource if you're ever looking for products/tools I use. I'm even linking my sassy earrings!

I buy A LOT of beauty and hair products every year (but it's for the job so it's totally okay haha!) so I was able to shop with my Rouge discount starting this past Friday. I made a couple store purchases and made one online order. BTW you can use your discount as many times as you like in-store but only once online.

If you're not Rouge no worries, you can always come back to this post to shop OR you can head over to my Makeup Routine, Haircare Routine, or Skincare Routine where a majority of the items are from Sephora. Today I wanted to share each of the items I picked up with my 20% discount.
