Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas/Top Favorite Sweaters for Fall

It’s hard to believe that we are already three weeks away from Thanksgiving. It is such a fun time of year with lots of family, food, and celebrating. I love thanksgiving and Christmas! It’s my favorite time of the year, since both my husband and I’s birthdays are right before thanksgiving and our anniversary is after it. I wanted to share with you all some outfit ideas for that special thanksgiving day and also some of my favorite sweaters for this fall/winter.

If your family gathering is more of a dressy occasion then I recommend going with a long sleeve dress or skirt. I love a nice long sleeve sweater dress or floral dress. You can find a lot of great dresses like this one from Francesca’s or Red Dress Boutique. If you live in a colder area then adding a pair of booties or OTK boots would look super cute and keep you warm.

If you’re family is having more of a casual gathering then I would recommend jeans and a nice sweater or pullover. This green sweater from Red Dress Boutique is one of my favorite with my OTK boots. It is made from a comfortable chenille material and even has a hoody. I also love this casual ivory sweater from Francesca’s. If you are going for a really casual outfit then I would go with a pullover. This one from Shop I Love Jewelry is my favorite and it is even monogrammed as well. It’s also a great Christmas gift.

Sweaters are perfect for this time of year, now that the temps have been dropping below 60 degrees. You can add a cute plaid scarf to any sweater too. I am a huge sweater fan! Some of my favorite sweaters are from Red Dress Boutique. They have cutest chenille sweaters! I added several of my top favorite sweaters from different stores. You can shop all of my favorites on this post.

I hope you all have a great Halloween and a great week!

Black is a great color for anyone to wear and it’s really popular this year. I love a good black dress for the fall. I found a simple black casual dress from a store called Bealls and I want to share with you different ways you can style a simple piece. There are endless options to styling a black dress.

Layering is great way to style a black dress. I added this cute burgundy moto jacket from Francesca’s and some black heels to dress it up. I am wearing a size small in the jacket and it’s under $60. It goes perfect with a top and jeans as well. It could be paired with some booties or OTK boots during the winter. You can also add a simple cardigan in any color with some boots. Another way to layer is by adding a sweater over top the dress.

There are endless shoe options with a black dress. You can put on a pair of black or leopard heels and dress up the look. You could also throw on a pair of flat leopard mules like mine from Gap Factory. OTK boots or short booties can also go really well with a black dress for a fall look.

There are so many different options and ways to style a casual black dress. Hope you all enjoy your week and have a great Halloween!

I love everything about the fall! Pumpkin patches, corn mazes, apple picking and best of all the cool weather. I am getting so excited for fall to come this weekend! We have been having warmer weather recently, so I wanted to share with you all some ways to transition into fall with light layers and my favorite fall wardrobe must haves.

 

One of my favorite pieces to transition into fall is short sleeve and long sleeve tees. I love that tees are so versatile. They can be worn in the Spring/Summer and the Fall as well. My favorite simple tee is this black one from Gap Factory for $25 normally but currently on sale for $10. This black tee can be worn by itself with jeans or you can add a simple cardigan. You can also easily dress it up with a skirt and a pair of ankle boots.

Cardigans are also a must have for light layering in the fall. You can add a cardigan over a dress or over a simple tee. The options are endless with cardigans! I linked my two favorite I grabbed from Nordstrom and a couple other ones I love. I am wearing a size XS/Small in both of the cardigans. They are so comfortable and perfect for when you walk inside somewhere and the A/C is on.

Another favorite fall transition piece I love is a great pair of mules or ankle boots. Leopard is one of my current favorite trends for fall. I found these cute leopard mules at the Gap Factory on sale for under $20. They are selling out pretty fast so I would grab them now. There is nothing better than a great ankle boot for the fall. I am loving the cut out ankle boots with the pointy toes. I found these cute grey ankle boots at Red Dress Boutique for $36. I am wearing a size 7, but would recommend sizing down a half size. They are also so comfortable to wear. I wore them around TN a whole day and they didn’t hurt my feet at all. I also linked my favorite black and nude booties too.

Jeans are a must have all year round, but especially during the fall. I found these cute cropped jeans at Francesca’s for under $50. If you are on the shorter height end these are perfect. I am 5’3″ and these fit me perfectly. They are a mid rise jean in a light wash and I am wearing a size 27. I definitely recommend going up a size in these. Francesca’s has a lot of other cute jeans too. My other favorite pair of jeans is the American Eagle Next Level Short Length Jeggings in a dark wash. I linked those as well as some other jeans I really love.

The Perfect Fall Dress For Weddings/Date Night

I am so excited fall weather is right around the corner…at least I am hoping so! I love this time of year filled with pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and the crisp air. There is nothing I love more than fall weather and fall fashion. I will be sharing a lot of my favorites throughout the next couple weeks. One of my favorite things to wear in the fall is a dress with a cardigan and some boots. I wanted to share with you my favorite fall dress so far and how to style it.

I am so excited fall weather is right around the corner…at least I am hoping so! I love this time of year filled with pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, and the crisp air. There is nothing I love more than fall weather and fall fashion. I will be sharing a lot of my favorites throughout the next couple weeks. One of my favorite things to wear in the fall is a dress with a cardigan and some boots. I wanted to share with you my favorite fall dress so far and how to style it.

An online site called Shein.com has some of the most affordable clothes. The material can be thin at times, but you can easily throw on a tank top or slip underneath and make any of their outfits great. I snagged a burgundy scalloped short sleeve dress from their site a few weeks back for fall for only $9. I love the fit and it goes perfect with boots and a cardigan.

I am wearing an XS in the dress and it fits very snug, so you could go up a size, but I love my dresses to fit well. The scalloped lace on the bottom does make it difficult to wear a slip underneath, but if you throw on a spanx slip it will work nicely with the dress.

I paired the dress with some nude ankle boots and an oatmeal colored cardigan. However, the dress can also be worn with black ankle boots and a grey cardigan too for another casual look. To dress up the look you can pair it with some black or nude heels. I definitely think it’s so versatile and could be worn on either a date night or even to a wedding.

I will definitely be taking this dress with me to Charleston in October. I can’t wait to share my travel adventures with you all over the next couple weeks! Hope you all have a great weekend! Don’t forget that you can shop all my items from the pictures through the links in this post or follow me on the LiketoKnowIt app to shop all of my outfits.

Summer to Fall Transition Outfit Ideas/Back to school wardrobe must haves

It’s crazy to think we are almost halfway through August and that school starts again. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fall transition outfits along with some essentials for your back to school wardrobe.

You can now shop my looks by clicking on the links in this blog post of visiting the Liketoknowit app and following me on there under the name beyoutifuladventure.

We have been keeping busy with our new home and still finishing lots of painting. I can’t wait to show you all the finishing project in a couple weeks when we get the flooring in and we are all settled. It’s crazy to think we are almost halfway through August and that school starts again. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fall transition outfits along with some essentials for your back to school wardrobe.

I love anything that is trendy, chic, and girly all at the same time! One of my favorite pieces to wear inside as we go into the fall season are cardigans. I love layering my clothes which is another reason I love fall so much! My absolute favorite cardigans right now are these B.P. Cardigans from Nordstrom. They are a soft material and fit so well, plus they have pockets. I just love pockets in my clothing so I don’t always have to carry my purse around everywhere. I got this cardigan in a grey and oatmeal color in a size XS. They definitely fit true to size.

I am also crushing on long sleeve and short sleeve tees. I found two from American Eagle I love, two from Nordstrom, and one from Target. There are definitely options when it comes to picking good tees. I love the fit the best with my Nordstrom ones and American Eagle ones since I am more petite and they fit the best! This coral and white tee is the perfect transition piece since it can be worn by itself or with a cardigan and it comes in so many other colors as well. I am wearing an XS and it is a little big in the neck area, so I would say it’s good to size down one. I also love the grey striped tee I have from American Eagle for under $30 because of the V neck and the soft material.

Shoes are always my favorite when it comes to fall. I love these adorable mauve mules I found for under $25 at Target. They run a little small, so I would recommend going up a half size. They are so comfy and can be worn with dresses or jeans. I also love these black over the knee boots from Amazon for under $50. They are such a steal! Normally over the knee boots run from $80-$130. They have a flatter heel which I love and fit my height which is 5’3″. The material is suede so you might want to spray them with some protective spray, but they are definitely a great fall boot and even into winter.

When it comes to back to school wardrobe must haves, I recommend grabbing some short sleeve or long sleeve tees, a couple cardigans, denim jeans, a few casual dresses and definitely some mules. I linked several here and in the liketoknowit app as well.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the last couple weeks of summer! I’d love to hear from you all on what you think about these fall transition pieces. Feel free to leave a comment below.

XOXO,
