France Forever In My Heart

Fall is definitely in the air, which means I get to wear jackets again on these chilly mornings! Yay! I seriously couldn't be happier. Now if it would just stay in the 60's all year long...

I have been searching high and low for the perfect army green utility jacket and I randomly came across it at Crossroads Trading Co. You know I love a good deal...so you know I was jumping for joy when I snagged this jacket for only $13.50! The most exciting thing is that it is still on Target's website (for $39.99) so you can get it too!

I stopped by the opening launch party for the new Birdcage Shop at Lord & Taylor earlier this week. This French inspired shop was absolutely adorable and left me longing for another trip back to Paris. French chocolates, berets, and cute clothing with French sayings on them were everywhere. You know I love everything French...the food, the art, the fashion. I can't believe that at this time a year ago we were in Paris. How time flies!

I was really excited to see that the fabulous customizing company Bow & Drape were a part of it. I found this super cute bandana that I customized with a cute beaded heart. Don't you love it?

My pup Rocko wanted to show off his fun scarf too! Matching his mommy in red and stripes! Isn't he so handsome???

I'd love to know, what are your favorite trends for fall???

Fall Is Just Around The Corner

Before you know it autumn will be here, and I couldn't be happier! I welcome the (slightly) cooler weather, hot cider, the smell of dried leaves, pumpkin pies, and most of all fall fashion.

Isn't this dress amazing? I'm loving the midi length, the bow detailing, and the adorable floral & bird print. This dress screams autumn to me...but it's light enough (so light that I had to wear a slip underneath) that I can start wearing it now and slowly transition it into the fall. Adding a cute black jacket over top, or even layering it over a turtleneck or black sheer top will keep you warm while looking extra cool.

What I love most about this look is that I got both the dress and shoes on sale at Lord & Taylor (along with numerous other items you'll see popping up on the blog soon!). Be sure to stop by the store or their website this weekend as they are having amazing discounts. And no, this is not a sponsored post...I'm just obsessed with the fantastic deals I always find there when I stop by to shop on my lunch break. Yes, it is dangerous having a L&T a block away from my office!
