update + monday instagram

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I had 3 days off and spent more time than I cared for running errands, but that also meant I picked up a few fun items while shopping.  Target was of course at the top of my list and saw lots of cute fall goodies!  I picked up these 3 items and have others on my wish list.  I’m still on the fence with the booties. I have ridiculously skinny ankles compared to my calves, so I can’t decide if they are a keeper yet. I can vouch for they are super comfy though!

I wanted to kick this Monday off with a little Instagram update.  If you ever want up-to-the-minute outfit details, they are listed under the Shop Instagram tab at the top of my blog page. I also like to talk about the outfits here though, because what fun is blogging if you can’t talk about the clothes?!  ☺️
Outfit #1:
Once the weather starts to cool down at night here, I love to throw on a lightweight cardigan. This one is a sweater vest (sleeveless), and about perfect when you just want a little extra layer. And if you missed it when I first picked up these booties last month, they are so ridiculously comfy!  And come in a beautiful burgundy color also.

Outfit #2:
This outfit is definitely all about the shoes!  Last year Nordstrom included them in their anniversary sale. I passed on them thinking I wouldn’t wear them often. Later they went on sale again, and I ordered them in my normal size, but they were too big and sadly returned them (and now in love!). I waited, and checked, and waited, and checked, and they never came back in stock in my size.  A couple weeks ago I stopped into our local Nordstrom Rack and low and behold — there they were!  And I only paid $30. 😉
Outfit #3:
Plaid.  One of my all time loves. All seasons. All colors. 😚
Outfit #4:
Embroidered tops are still going strong and this one is no exception. I love the taupe/gray color and will be so easy to layer this winter also. My shoes are clearanced out, but will link what sizes I can find left.

  1. I had the leopard sweater in my cart and then talked myself out of it when I got to the cashier yesterday at Target since I already have a Merona leopard print cardigan (more large-scale prints than the 2016 version!) Glad to know someone will be enjoying it though!
