Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and are having a great start to the new week! This weekend my boyfriend and I went to the pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins for the season, and we are hoping to finally get around to carving/painting them sometime this week. I am one of those people that prefers to paint a pumpkin over carving, unless someone does the carving work for me. My pumpkin carving skills are weak and I can only ever seem to get halfway done with a pumpkin until I hand it over to someone else. Maybe it's time to pick up my weights collecting dust in the corner - oops. Anyways, I wanted to share with you all my favorite everyday tote bag from Barrington Gifts because, to be honest, I am completely obsessed. The bag is high quality and very well made, and the inside is so roomy I can fit all of my necessities, and then some, inside! Being a blogger, I carry my laptop, agenda and camera with me everywhere, and this tote bag manages to hold all of those things with plenty of room to spare! I use this bag everyday because it is efficient and cute, but this bag would also be the perfect carryon for a flight, or for a weekend away at the cabin.

My bag is The St. Anne Tote - Fall Monogram with my favorite brown check pattern, which I find to be extremely versatile during the fall and winter seasons, but they also have a variety of patterns and colors to choose from to fit your style. You also get to choose the colors of your initials, and if you want a bag without initials that is also an option! Needless to say, I love these bags from Barrington Gifts and I am a fan of the brand!

As for the rest of my outfit, I am wearing a rust colored asymmetrical sweater with a mock-neck, which I find to be extremely flattering, and the asymmetrical hem gives the look a bit of a modern twist. I styled the look with an affordable camel coat, which I think is one item every girl needs in her wardrobe. There is something about a camel coat that is so chic and timeless and I do not see them going out of style anytime soon. To finish off my look, I wore these boots from Sam Edelman, which have without a doubt been my favorite pair of boots this season. Even though they are heeled, they are so comfortable and the camel suede is just gorgeous to say the least.

I hope you all have had a blessed Monday and continue to have an amazing week!

Happy Friday Everyone! Fall has finally arrived in Charlotte, so we can pull out our sweaters and boots and run to the nearest Starbucks (I know you do that too)! Today I am wearing this darling look from Ivy & Leo, which is perfect for fall! There is a pleasant crisp, cool feeling in the air, but it isn't too cold yet so we can rock our mini skirts without the dreaded goosebumps! This mini skirt in particular is perfect for fall with the autumnal rust color and faux suede material, and you all know I am sucker for girly touches like these ruffles. I paired the look with this chenille cowl neck sweater, which is soft and cozy and has the cutest balloon sleeves! To finish off the look I wore a pair of over-the-knee boots, which pairs perfectly with mini skirts, sweater dresses and your favorite pair of jeans! If you are loving this look as much as I am, be sure to use code 'LOVELY15' to receive 15% off any of these items!

I am a lover of all fall activities, and what better way to celebrate the Halloween season than Harry Potter? This weekend my boyfriend and I are going to the Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone - In Concert symphony, and I am practically giggling with excitement. I am one of those Harry Potter obsessed people that grew up reading the series and watching the movies, and I may or may not have some Harry Potter merchandise scattered around my bedroom. ;)

Is anyone else Harry Potter obsessed? Leave me a comment down below telling me some of your favorite fall activities. I love hearing about all of the fun and festive things you all are up to!

Happy Wednesday loves!

October has arrived, and my boyfriend and I are traveling Europe for the next couple of weeks, so I figured now is the perfect time to share with you all my favorite travel outfit for fall! I am currently writing this blog post on a train here in Austria, and the views are breathtaking to say the least. The leaves decorating the trees along the Alps are various shades of yellow, orange and red, which immediately puts me in the fall spirit, which I suppose isn't that hard to do. It is my favorite season, after all! So enough of my rambling, let me share with you all my go to travel outfit for fall!

First thing's first, as far as packing is concerned, do try to pack light! My current suitcase is way too heavy and my poor boyfriend has been stuck with the annoying task of lifting both of our bags up and down the stairs (bless him). When traveling to a new place, you never know how many cobblestoned roads or lengthy stairwells (four flights to be exact) you are going to encounter. Do yourself a favor and pack as light as possible, and be sure to pack items that you can easily mix and match to create new looks! 

I always find that fall weather can be unpredictable, but a nice sweater will never fail you when the weather gets crisp! Airplane temperatures can also be dicey, so I wanted to make sure that I wore something both warm, but not too warm, and comfortable for my 8 1/2 hour flight. I chose to wear this gorgeous mauve sweater  from Shop The Mint, which is the perfect cute and cozy outfit to travel in during the fall season! I paired it with a pair of stretchy skinny jeans from Gap, which are comfortable and cute, but it would also look really cute with a pair of leggings if you prefer an even comfier option for traveling. To finish off the look, I put on a pair of low heel ankle booties that are comfortable for walking long distances. We have not stopped walking since we arrived, so comfortable shoes are a must! I also packed these white leather sneakers, which are honestly probably the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. The cushioned memory foam sole has been a lifesaver for my feet! Happy feet means more walking, which means more sightseeing and more chocolate. ;)

I hope you all have enjoyed this post on my fall travel outfit. Also, if you sign up for emails from The Mint Julep Boutique you will receive $10 off your first order! I don't know about you, but I am all about those coupons!

Be sure to come back soon to check out my travel diaries from Austria and Switzerland!

We have gotten a taste of fall the past several days in the Carolinas, which has me lighting candles, running to Starbucks (who doesn't love a PSL?) and pulling out my sweaters and cardigans! Cozy cardis are perfect for the fall season, and this cute cardi from Magnolia Boutique is my new favorite! I am not exaggerating when I say that it feels like you are wearing an exceptionally soft blanket, so I know I will be getting a lot of use out of it not only for going out on crisp, fall days, but also for lounging around at home. 

I styled my cardi with this Leopard Satin Cami (under $20) and these affordable black skinny jeans, which pair nicely with black ankle booties. What I love about this outfit combo is how easy it is to just throw on while still managing to look cute! Layering a cardi over a cami or a basic tee is the perfect way to stay warm and cozy on those chilly fall mornings, and you can easily take off the cardi and still have a cute outfit on if your fall day starts to warm up - layering is key! I also styled this look with a bag from Kate Spade. This particular style of the bag is currently sold out, but I am linking two other bags (here and here) from Kate Spade in the exact same color. Let me tell you, the color of this bag is even more gorgeous in person, and it is the perfect shade of mauve for fall! 

Are you all as obssesed with cozy cardis as I am? Leave me a comment down below telling me your favorite look for fall!

Black Slip Dress // Heels, they also come in Black // Clutch, similar here

Happy Wednesday Lovelies! Even though we are only halfway through the week, I wanted to give you some outfit inspiration for a date night look this weekend! Even if you don't have a hot date, do not sweat! This simple and chic date night look would also be perfect for a night out with the girls!

Sometimes it is difficult to know what to wear on a date night! There is always the pressure of dressing up too much, or simply not dressing up enough. I know that when I first started dating I would frantically search my closet for the perfect outfit, and nothing ever seemed just right! I am here to tell you that I have learned that a classic black dress is an easy and perfect look for a date night. This satin slip dress is sexy, yet classy, as it shows a little bit of skin, but doesn't reveal too much! The v-neck is flattering, and the midi length is very much on trend this season! 

This particular dress from Two Feathers has side slits which gives the dress movement while also showing a little bit of leg! It is still warm here in Charlotte, so I wore the dress on it's own, but it would also look gorgeous with a chic trench coat, or with a simple sweater and mules for a more casual fall look. For my date night look, I paired it with these heels that are the perfect dupes for the Valentino Rockstud heels. These shoes are constantly selling out, but keep checking back because they always come back in stock! I sadly checked their website daily until my size came back in stock, but let me tell you, it was worth it!

You all know how much I love dresses, so I wanted to share with you this little white dress that I cannot get enough of! White dresses have become a new wardrobe staple alongside the little black dress, making these classic and timeless pieces a must have in every gal's closet. Both white and black dresses are classy and versatile and can easily be dressed up or down with sandals, sneakers, boots, or heels. I think this white dress is perfect for summer with it's strapless design and comfortable cotton material, but it could also be used as a fall transitional piece by pairing it with a cute cardi and some ankle booties.

Since the weather here in Charlotte is still scorching hot, I paired it with these cute lace up gingham sandals, which have been my most worn sandals this season. Gingham has definitely been my favorite trend this year, and I love that I can easily incorporate it into every outfit with these cute, and more importantly, comfortable sandals! Both the dress and the sandals are super affordable with the dress being under $20 and the sandals under $35! I am linking all of these items down below along with my favorite little black dress featured on my Instagram page!

What do you all think about white dresses being staple pieces? Could they possibly even be the new little black dress? *gasp*

Happy Friday Loves!

The weekend is finally here, so I thought now was the perfect time to share with you how I like to spend a relaxing night in, courtesy of Formula 10.0.06.

For those of you who are not familiar with the brand, Formula 10.0.06 is a skincare company that has been around since 1933, that specializes in a wide variety of products for every skin type! I personally have sensitive/combination skin, and I found that the Be Berry Fresh Moisturizing Mud Mask was my favorite.

After a long day, the first thing I like to do when I get home is change into a comfy pair of PJ's. I got these pink satin pajamas during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I must say, I am obsessed! Once I am cozied up in pajamas, I like to light a few candles in my bedroom or bathroom and then proceed to take off all of the makeup, oil and grime (eek!) that has built up on my face throughout the day. I used the Be Berry Ready Daily Foaming Cleanser to wash my face, and then applied the Be Berry Fresh Moisturizing Mud Mask in order to really give my face a good detox!

While I relax with the mud mask mask on my face, I often curl up in bed to either watch a feel-good movie or to read a book. On this particular day, I decided to read The Nightingale, by Kristin Hannah, and let me tell you, you will not want to put this one down! 

I am afraid to say that I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so while I was lounging around I also decided to break into the cookie jar and make myself a hot cup of peppermint tea. I always find that I sleep better at night when I end the day feeling relaxed, which for me equals a bit of self pampering, a hot cup of tea and a good book. 

I hope this post has inspired you to pamper yourself a little bit this weekend (you deserve it, after all), and be sure to check out Formula 10.0.6's products, which are conveniently available at Target and Ulta




What is your favorite way to wind down after a hectic day? Leave me a comment down below!
