The "It Bag"

The beaded bag is to Spring 2019 what the rattan bag was to Spring 2018. You can thank Susan Alexandra and her quirky vintage inspired bags for kicking off this trend last summer. Luckily for those of us who can’t afford the $200+ price tag for her not made for every day bags, everyone and their mother has their own version for the season. And guess what? Fantastic, vintage options can be found on Etsy. I’m loving this, this, and this.


Western boots were the biggest footwear trend on and off the runway last fall. They add the perfect edge to an otherwise basic or feminine look. I dipped a toe into the trend with these boots in black and they are just perfect. A just high enough heel, clingy shaft, and a pointy toe make these the perfect update on a black bootie. I paid about $90 for mine and have to keep myself from wearing them every single day. Definitely picking up the below cream color way for $55 today from DSW.

You’re welcome!

If you don’t know already, you should know that I’m a denim freak. I don’t wear leggings as pants, I wear jeans. High-waisted jeans, cropped jeans, flared jeans, wide leg jeans.. just jeans. So when I see some of my favorite fits from Levi’s on major sale for $19.99 at T.J.Maxx, you know I’m scooping them all up. I’ll make room in my closet somehow..

The Look

My love for all things & Other Stories is no secret, but for fall especially, they're the best. Great sweaters and the perfect iteration of the "it" item of the season are what I look to them for the most. I wrote about this leopard skirt last week, and below is exactly how I want to wear it as the weather slowly cools down. Just add tights for colder nights or a dad sneaker for a more casual weekend look.
