Hello Love!
The girls and I received the most beautiful package last week from RoseWaterDesigns on Etsy with the perfect gift to give your little girls.  What’s more perfect than giving your girls a piece of your heart, especially on a special occasion, like the first day of school.  Calm those little stomach butterflies by letting them know that you’re close to their heart!

 
She also gifted us two more adorable necklaces from her kids line RoseBudJewels!
So adorable!
 
Thanks so much Lauren for gifting these beautiful pieces! XOXO

Fall ankle booties

Fall ankle booties 150 150 Jenn Pennell

Hello Love!
 It’s getting closer!
The air is less humid, sunsets are getting earlier and earlier, and more yellow leaves are falling in my yard.
I love my tall boots so much from last year so I won’t be investing in another pair this year, but I knew I needed a good pair of brown ankle booties to sport with my winter wear.  I found these babies at my favorite discount shoe store, where pretty much all my shoes come from,  and they’re definitely stunning.  They weren’t exactly what I went in looking for but these are so much better! They’re very slim and not bulky.  No one makes shoes like Cole Haan
They’re gonna be magnificent with dark skinny jeans!


Find these adorable booties below!

I am SO in love with my dining room table. 

Unfortunately, this is usually the place where everything happens…meals, homework, arts & crafts,…pretty much everything.  I found this runner and plates last weekend for our Thanksgiving dinner this year, but I had to get them out and display them, even if its just for a day or two!

 Oh, friends.  I love doing these fashion posts for you and this one definitely TOPS the list.
You may remember this post I did last month with my precious #izzythedestroyer and The Home T loved it so much they sent me another fab tee to model for you.  Well, I definitely had to go all themey with this shoot!
 

 
 
 Then close your eyes and tap your heels together three times…and think to yourself, ‘there’s no place like home’.
 
 
Thanks so much to my friends at The Home T for sending me this sweet shirt!!

September 11th – Home of the brave!

September 11th – Home of the brave! 150 150 Jenn Pennell
 

You all know where you were and exactly what you were doing on the morning of September 11, 2001.  Me? I was in my second year of college and had just gotten to school when everyone was gathered around the TV sets in the student center.  The first plane had hit and the whole room was silent.  I went to my economics class and then the news came of the second plane. We were in utter shock.  We all just sat there for minutes in complete silence and then our teacher dismissed us.  I called Jas while walking back to my car and just started crying.  I still tear up to this day thinking about it and watch every TV show about it.
Where were you and what were you doing on that terrible day?
 
Almost two months ago my beloved Chattanooga was also attacked and 5 of our service men were killed in a senseless massacre. Again, our hearts were bruised, but we are STRONG and we will never forget those who serve and all those who have lost their lives. 
We are home of the brave!
 
Thanks so much to my good friends over at Ruby’s Rubbish for sending me another fantastic shirt!

Hello Love!
 I mentioned back in another post how #izzythedestroyer would probably be featured in all my back yard photos and here’s she is again. 🙂 I hope you love her as much as I do.  She’s pretty precious….
 ….even when she licks my tights.
 The sweet folks over at Natural Life gifted me this adorable green & blue dress a few weeks ago and it’s ahhhhmazing. Its super stretchy and looks fantastic with these navy tights and booties!

Hello Love!
I mean, I guess it’s going to be a given now that if I take photos in my back yard #izzythedestroyer is guaranteed to be in the photos. HA! This beast of a dog has become quite the photo bomber and I don’t see her stopping any time soon.
 I’m sure you know by now that I’m a scout for SavvySassyMoms.com and I’m writing some fashion articles for them.  With cooler weather on the way, I’m showing off some of my new favorite pieces for fall 2015.  From dresses to boots, flats to hats, I’m gonna show you all the good stuff and where to find it. 
Be sure you’re following me on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, & Pinterest so you don’t miss out!
A few weeks ago I received a “Happy Box” from Natural Life that had all kinds of fabulous goodies in it.  When I pulled out this dress, I knew it would be a favorite.  The colors are perfect for fall and I knew that even if it was sleeveless, I could layer it up.  Paired up with an olive button down and my favorite pair of ankle booties, I knew it would be adorable!

Dress // Red Traveler Dress by Natural Life (IT’S ON SALE FOR $27!!)

Necklace // Wholesale Boutique but similar here.
Bracelet // Bought on Etsy, but similar one here.
