This drapey tunic top immediately got my attention – it’s something funky and different, with it’s length and almost jacket-like style. Down here in SC, we rarely see those mystical Fall temps of 70 and below…at least, until Winter. September feels like Summer, October feels like Summer and then one day I wake up, sometime mid November, and realize I need a coat. (Usually after I’ve already gotten every one out the door and are late to something or other ha ha.)
Oh, the good old South. I do love thee.
Now, I like to fake it ’til I make it (one of my many winning mama mottos), so this plaid tunic is really my jam. It can be that token plaid shirt to pair with allthejeans that doubles as a light jacket, for the (sort of) chilly mornings and evenings through the Fall.
If you’re not about those flares, fear not! I tried the top on with not only skinny jeans, but also boyfriend jeans and cut-off shorts. It slayed with all three. I just switched out the heels for booties with some of them.
Treasure & Bond though. Right? They have some cool stuff this season! I think I’m drawn to it, because it’s all just a little bit different from everything else that’s coming out. It has it’s own twist on the trends. (and it’s all pretty affordable, too)
tank: old tank, but the Express Barcelona Cami is a crowd favorite here. It comes in many different colors, but their black is my favorite.
jeans: Treasure & Bond Skinny Flare Jeans – great jeans. I wore them with the heels and then this slightly lower wedge (the new rust suede) and the length of the jean worked great. I am 5’10, by the way. Oh, and FYI…these are not really high waisted jeans. Maybe slightly, but not a true high waist.
shoes: Vienna Dress Pump by Steve Madden – the BEST heel, in my opinion, for mamas. It’s not too low or too high. I have been loving these for over a year now and still can’t get over how awesome and versatile they are. I wear them with dresses, skirts, jeans and shorts. Everything, basically. It always adds a little sexy when I need it.
bag: (not shown, b/c it was tucked underneath the huge double jogging stroller I was pushing moments before) Lily Jade Diaper Bag, the Madeline. Currently out of stock in that particular style, but I highly recommend their bags. I also recently came across Skiphop’s Chelsea Diaper bag and…ummm…it’s hot – perfect for Fall/Winter outfits, looks to hold quite a bit of baby stuff and gives you free hands. YES.
Fall, if you’re listening…could you spare just a smidge of cool weather for us Southern folk? I really don’t ask for much. Just a day or two (or three) where I can contentedly sip on a salted caramel bullshitcrapacinno from the Bucks, cozied up like this girl, surrounded by golden leaves…with my kids running wild in the background, but I won’t care or even hear them, because…FALL. Ya know?
