Skinny scarf love

Skinny scarf love 150 150 Jenn Pennell
One skinny piece of fabric.
One serious style game changer.
Tie it into a super cool 70’s YSL-era bow. 
Knot it around your waist as a flowing sash belt.
Knot it as a beautiful headscarf in the summer.
There are so many ways to wear a great scarf like this and this Rifle Paper color pattern can be worn all year long!  I’ll definitely be sporting this with a navy LuLeRoe Carly dress this summer!

Hello Love!
Let’s face it…moms are busy.
Crazy busy.
tieks-shoes

I would love to wear heels and stilettos every day, but come on, they just aren’t practical for a busy mom on the go 24-7.  I’ve got to have a shoe that I can walk in all day at work and then all the hours till my head hits the pillow at night. 

 I’ve done many posts about Tieks, but y’all, THEY’RE AMAZING!
I really never thought my foot was wide until ballet flats came into style.  I would try pair after pair but they always rub the bone below my pinky toe and I would be miserable all day, until I tried my first pair of Tieks.

I had read review after review on how amazing they were and how they were well worth the price, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Thankfully I found a great deal on a pair on eBay before they became the rage because the used ones are crazy expensive now!  I’ve was able to snatch a few pair on there at great prices, but now they’re almost as much as a normal pair!

Do I love them? YES.
Are they worth the price? YES!
I wouldn’t have 6 pair if I didn’t think so!

Mine? Leopard!

Hello Love!
You all know I love my gingham button down, well, button downs in general, but this one is my top favorite.  I feel like I can pretty much piece it together with anything and it just works. 
This olive army vest is probably my favorite piece to wear in the fall and winter. I wear it aaaalllll the time, sometimes multiple times a week.  Both are from J. Crew and are just classic pieces and are staples to my wardrobe. My sweet friend Stephanie over at OohBabyDesigns sent me this cute arrow clutch and isn’t it ADORABLE?!

Hello Love!
It’s amazing to me that October is almost over already.  It seemed like we just got out of the 90 degree weather and now, here we are in sweater weather.  Our peak week in fall is usually right at Halloween but because we’re in a severe drought, most of our leaves have turned and are already covering the ground.  It’s such a sad sight when the leaves are brown and bare so we’re going to fully enjoy the next few days playing in the leaves and getting in as many photo sessions as possible!
I am IN LOVE with this outfit I’m wearing today.  The beautiful sweater is from the Nordstrom sale a few months ago and this shirt is a LOFT jewel that I found at Goodwill.  I had actually turned my nose to it but decided last minute to get it since it was 1/2 off. Thank goodness I did! It’s one of my favorite fall pieces now.  Paired with my favorite Vince Camuto booties and “Audrey”, this outfit is fall perfection.

How to wear a summer dress into fall

How to wear a summer dress into fall 150 150 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
The warm weather is back again with record breaking temps at 90 degrees!  We’re due for a cool down this weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled!  I wore my favorite dress, the LuLaRoe “Amelia” today with my cute orange Tory Burch sandals, but I thought I’d wear it in a fall version for you today. A sweater would be SOOO cute over this dress, but I went with a denim jacket with a cute cuffed sleeve and a neutral pair of booties.
  I kinda have a love/hate relationship with my denim jacket.  All the girls at work LOVE their’s and wear them regularly, but it isn’t one of my go-to pieces.  While I love that it matches practically anything I wear, I find them very constricting and uncomfortable.  I’ve tried many different versions and just have never fallen in love with one.  I found this one at GAP last year and thought that with it having some “stretch” in it, I would like it better…but it’s still just eh.  Do you have a certain brand that you LOVE and that I should try?  I probably need to to to JCrew and try one of theirs on because I love everything they have.
LuLaRoe has become all the rage in my little small town and a lot of girls knew right off the bat what kind of dress this was.  My fabulous rep, Lisa Rossiter, sent me this dress last month and I just can’t get enough!  It’s simply perfection. The sleeves, the shape, the length.  Nothingbutlove!  I have this dress in purple too, as seen here!

Thanks Lisa Rossiter for sponsoring this post! XOXO!

Hello Love!
My local JCrew was soooo very good to me other day and I scored this fabulous pink gingham shirt and the coat I’ve been lusting over for months now, the purple field jacket.  It says it’s deep burgundy, but it looks purple to me.  Originally $125, I got it for only $45!!  Y E S! 
We hopped in the car to go to dinner tonight and I threw on my jacket in case there was a chill in the air.  I’m that girl, like Meg Ryan in “When Harry met Sally” where she needs a sweater when it’s 72 degrees outside.  I’m always cold.  As we were driving along my beloved husband looks over at me and said “Honey, I don’t think you match.” My reply, “Yeah, I don’t care.”  😁
