Tieks Shoes

Tieks Shoes 1066 1600 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
Let’s face it…moms are busy.
Crazy busy.

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!
Which ones are your favorite?
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.

Hello Love!
A few posts ago I showed off this beautiful blanket scarf from my sweet friend Amy over at AmyAnneApparel.  Today, I’m showing you another one of her fabulous scarves!  I’m such a lover of color and this one matches so much! I can’t get enough of this blue Gap dress and it does perfectly along with my mustard Tieks!

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!

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.”  😁

Welcome to my front porch!

Welcome to my front porch! 150 150 Jenn Pennell
 Hello friends!
Today I’m showing off my newly decorated front porch.  I’ve always put all my time and effort into decorating the inside of my house and the porches have always been neglected.  I’ve had the rockers for years but just recently added the shutters on either side of the front door and the bench.  I got most of the accessories at Hobby Lobby and re-covered some {uuuuuugly} pillows with burlap.
What do you think?
 I LOVE how it turned out!

Wishes & White pants after Labor Day

Wishes & White pants after Labor Day 150 150 Jenn Pennell
Hello Love!
Well, we’re WAY past Labor Day but I’m not ready to put away my white jeans just yet.  It’s just now “cooling down” to the 80’s so the thought of putting them up hurts me a little bit.  
And my sandals.  Oh, man. I always hate when I have to put all my beloved sandals away for winter.  Especially these.  These little darlings always end up towards the back of my closet and don’t get near the attention they deserve. I mean, aren’t they the sweetest little puddin’ shoes you’ve ever seen?!
I know.

I’ve always had a thing for dandelions, or as I like to call them “wishes”, so when this adorable LuLaRoe Classic T popped up in one of LuLaRoe rep Lisa Roster’s album last week,

Lu La Roe Dress

Lu La Roe Dress 1066 1600 Jenn Pennell
 Hello Love!
Fall is officially here in the Tennessee Valley and I am L O V I N G it! We went from 96 degree temps last weekend to highs reaching only in the 70’s this weekend and I can’t get enough.  I’m totally not ready for the cold to come my way but all these fun fall outfits on Instagram have me itching to pull out all.the.vests.and.blanket.scarves.
I started a terrible (insert winking emoji here) addiction a couple months ago to LuLaRoe clothes.  I’ve done multiple posts of some of their fabulous pieces and this one is another show stopper.
 This beautiful purple plum Lu La Roe dress is the perfect dress to wear to work, a wedding, or a hot night on the town with your beau. AAAAAND it has pockets!
