Flatlay: Kelly Green in Fall

Fell in love with this kelly green sweater the second it hit stores! It comes in several other (neutral) color options, but the green struck me as different for this time of year – and I love it! The button neck can be left up to keep warm, but also folds down for a trendy look. The inside is fleece lined and very soft. While us Florida kids won’t be wearing this for a couple months, it’s another ideal buy for our winters ~ throw on over a tee during the mornings and evenings, and un-layer in the afternoons. Currently 40% off!

Flatlay: Fall Basics

If I had to pick an outfit that represented the perfect fall basics, this would be it. Distressed skinny jeans, comfy tunic-like sweater, cognac booties, fun earrings, and a pop of something (leopard clutch in this case). Not to mention the perfect blend of neutrals. I found this sweater in store this past week on a whim and couldn’t resist – the ‘oatmeal’ speckled blend is a perfect mix of browns, grey, and a hint of black. It’s a lightweight material also, so easily layered over a long sleeve striped tee or throw a vest over top. The mock neck also adds an extra touch. If black jeans aren’t your jam, switch them out for dark grey, burgundy, or a dark wash blue denim – all work well! Heck throw on grey or black booties also – they all work because this sweater is awesome like that. 😁

**On a side note – did you guys know Old Navy is separating from the GAP and Banana Republic (and other brands owned by GAP)? This was mentioned to me by the sales associate at Old Navy last week. I knew GAP had been failing for quite awhile (honestly.. they just need someone to step up their design studio like Old Navy has), but I was shocked to hear they aren’t just closing the company altogether. Instead, since Old Navy has been so successful, they are separating them out completely from the other brands as their own company…. to allow them to “thrive separately.” I’m not incredibly business savvy, so I’m sure there is a good reason (perhaps for stock purposes), but I’m still a little confused by the venture. Banana and GAP will then be represented by their own new line. I guess I’m a little frustrated as a customer because all I was hearing from the sales associate was “you may have to apply for a new credit card” (I have a Banana card only), similarly to when The Limited sold out. I like that my rewards and payments are all kept together. So we will see. As a customer, I hope they keep it as seamless as possible, especially if it’s the best venture for all brands.

Flatlay: Soft Stripes

This sweater is incredibly soft and comfortable! One of many new fall arrivals, and I’m trying to be choosy since I only get a month or two to wear all of my winter favorites down here! 😝 I made the mistake of selling all of my winter wardrobe when we first moved down here to FL, and we had a relatively warm winter a couple year ago, and my oh my – I was regretting it last winter when it got colder!  Jokes on me I’m sure, but I was wearing the same few warm pieces I owned over and over – this year I wanted to scoop up all the lightweight favorites since 100% acrylic and wool are too heavy (watch… it will be 90 degrees all winter lol).  I love the colors in this sweater also – perfect match for cognac accessories! There is also a lilac striped option as well.

Flatlay: A Grand Mix

Sometimes, you just want to throw it all together and hope it works! Whatcha think? My leopard scarf might be a tad too light in color (its old) to bring out the taupe in the booties, but the idea was to throw a lot of gray print together and see how well it blended. Without the scarf, I love, love the gray leopard print matched with gray jeans, taupe booties, and a darker camo jacket! This will definitely be an #ootd for me later this year, I just need to find a new scarf. 😁

Flatlay: Pumpkin Spice

Who’s had their first PSL of the season?! I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but I do love it this time of year! I haven’t been able to enjoy my first one yet, but I usually try to grab one every couple of weeks while they are in season. That being said – my corduroy skirt is a long time favorite I bring out every fall season. It’s honestly a little tight on me these days 🙈, and I’m looking for a replacement, so I’ll save you a mirror pic and reserve it for flatlays-only.😁

Since corduroy is so popular right now, I couldn’t resist bringing it out already – even in August! There are several variations of corduroy skirts available right now. Both Old Navy and H&M have their own versions in various shades available, and I have my eye on the rust color from ON and the ivory from H&M. I’ll link below! Pants also!

Flatlay: Fall Transition

A black & white sweater. Olive jeans. Cognac shoes. Leopard earrings. Mustard bag.

Yup, the gangs all here! You’ve seen me re-create a similar outfit over and over throughout the seasons. It’s one of my favorites. I might sub out the mustard bag for whatever is ‘on trend’, but all of these items make up one of the most classic and loved looks, especially for a fall transition outfit. Last year or the year before, the hot blend was red earrings combined with a leopard bag. So really it’s all the same – throw in a pop of color with a little leopard, and you have yourself a great outfit!

My sweater is older from J.Crew, but I went and searched for all the best black and white (affordable) sweaters and tops available right now – linked below! If I had to pick a favorite it would the be the Banana Republic option – it’s a cotton blend (so suitable for this weather), on sale, and has an interesting pattern as well.

Flatlay: Twist Hem Top (New Version)

Do ya’ll remember my favorite Amazon find of the summer? It was this woven twist-hem tank!  I originally posted about it here as a flatlay and later as an #ootd photo (shown below). I received so many compliments and even layered it under a long cardigan for work with flats.

The best news is it now comes in a long sleeve version! Quite a few color options are available and most are Prime eligible. This is definitely a perfect top for Florida winters and for layering up north. And if you’re a shorty like me, it will work with leggings as well. 😆

Flatlay: Casual Cool Leopard

Can you tell I’m trying to sneak in all the fall transition pieces that still work in this Florida heat?! 😎 My tee is on clearance for $10 with code FLOWERPOWER + an extra 15% off at J.Crew Factory! All new arrivals are also on sale and the 15% on top is included! I’m finally ordering the leopard woven collar sweater from yesterday’s wish list post, which is now almost sold out argh.  My jeans are a couple years old from LOFT, but I linked a similar pair from Nordstrom that just have the raw hem (mine are a step hem which is probably going out of style ha).

Target Fall Shoe Sale

Guys, today is the last day to save 20% on all shoes from Target! Use code SHOES20. They have some great options for pre and early fall months before the weather dips – especially if you live in Florida! I’ve been looking for 2 new pairs of open toed booties to replace older pairs in my closet, and these are perfect! I also have always wanted a pair of leopard sneakers and these are a fraction of the cost you’d pay for a designer version like Kate Spade. And who can say no to a pair of pink mules (which also comes in several other color options including leopard)?! 😍 I took my regular size 6 in all four pairs, but if you tend to swing between sizes I would go down 1/2 size.

Fall Flatlays

Hi guys! I wanted to round up and share a few flatlays I’ve posted on Instagram! I’ve picked up a few new items that will transition you right into fall, and some are older pieces I’ve re-created new ideas based on inspiration photos I’ve seen lately. Hopefully you are enjoying all the new color combinations and prints available this year – I know I am! 💕

A New Plaid:

This is one of my new favorite tops!  I just love the cobalt blue/burgundy combination. A perfect transition piece, especially since it’s a linen-blend and perfect for the heat still! My clutch color is old, but I’ll link the same clutch in new colors – and also a similar clutch in the burgundy color.

Camo Sweater:

I first saw this camo sweater in store and fell in love. I just love the camo print matched with the white stripes. It has a wide neck, so you can wear it off-shoulder or somewhat on (which is how I would style it). The texture, fit, and colors are the prefect mix. I also had a little fun and mixed the camo with my new favorite snakeskin bag — love it!

Fall Neutrals:

I saw this rust cardigan in store in recently and instantly fell in love with the color. I have this same style of cardigan in 4-5 other colors – it’s by far my most worn cardigan to work. I’m always freezing, and since this is longer it keeps me extra warm even though it’s lightweight itself. It’s been sold out online for awhile, but the same color is made in a different style (linked below). My top is older, but I’ll link a leopard top I love ever more that would also match perfectly with this rust color.

A Fresh Gingham Style:

I’m always on the hunt for new ways to style this gingham shirt that I’ve owned for years, and is still available! That’s when you know you’ve got a good closet staple. I recently saw a J.Crew catalog ad featuring a similar shirt, blue blazer, and light colored jeans. They used silver shoes which was a bit much for me, so I switched out for a white mule – and added the leopard necklace, because, well – duh. 😆

Another Leopard Tee:

Alright, I know, I know. Another leopard tee you ask? Well, yeah. I mean… this one is different! It’s gray and black – so, definitely required for my closet. 😉 Now I need to find ways to style it! What do you think of the olive jacket? My exact jacket is old, but I found a very similar option with the raw hem!

Leopard, Marigold, & Black:

Based on another catalog photo, this time from Sole Society, I loved the way they matched a leopard top with a marigold bag and black accessories! I pulled out an old leopard top of my own to re-create the look. I used a denim that has a slight gray cast to pull in the black booties more easily. Everything in this photo is older (I found one link for my booties, almost sold out), but I found near identical pieces you can use to re-create the same look yourself. LOFT has a very similar print available now also.

Just Because:

Every fall I have the itch to create a flatlay or outfit with olive jeans and a ton of neutral accessories. You might recognize the white tee from earlier this summer. I created a similar outfit with the same jeans and sandals. Basically you just up the ante for a fall look and add some layering pieces.
