Completely Jumping the Gun

I can’t help it. I tried to put this off until August but I can’t hide my excitement any longer!
I know it is still a bah-zillion degrees outside but….
it’s coming.
If you have followed my blog you will know that I love FALL.
Fall is my favorite season in Atlanta. 
I love watching the leaves change, crisp air and of course football season.
But we all know that’s not the real reason, right?
I love a great pair of jeans, a white tank and a blazer.
Plain and simple.
It’s my thang.
Add a scarf, boots, bangles.
Heaven.
I love these Love Story boot cut jeans by J Brand
 I truly believe that they look incredible on everyone.
Fitted at the hip and thigh, they flare below the knee so it creates a great shape.

Cap toe shoes are a must for fall, I love the metallic ones especially!
Ummm, ok look what I found at Target.com- 
Look pretty darn good to me! I’m definitely going to give these a try, why not!
I love to mix- I am all about a Target or TJ Maxx run!
My latest obsession is this Celine Bag- it’s all I think about.
It will go with everything for Fall and Winter 
and be able to hold my heavy load of technology every day to and from the office. 
Hey, it’s for work. I work hard. It is the perfect work bag. 
Maybe someone will give it to me as a gift…hint hint!

Heaven.
Berlin There Done That by OPI matches my new favorite bag perfectly.
Planning on switching to this color real soon.
For the boys-
Not only do I love a great blazer for women, I reaaallly love them on men with a button down, a great pair of blue jeans and loafers (no socks).  Add a pocket square, a great watch, sunglasses and whoa,
I’m sold!
Oh, and the stubble……stop!
Hope this helps you get in the mood for some shopping!
XO,

5 Ways to Instantly Feel Put Together

5 Ways to Feel Instantly Put Together

5 Ways to Feel Instantly Put Together by fashionablechicks featuring faded jeans

1. If you grew up with my Southern Mother you would have known this since the time you turned 13! Don’t leave the house without mascara and lip gloss. Seriously, she knew what she was talking about! Nowadays I may add CONCEALER to that list too.

2. It doesn’t have to be a professional MANI, but take a moment every couple of days to either file and or add a coat of polish. It doesn’t take long and it really helps you look and I swear feel better either around town or in the office.

3. Bling!! If you know me you know this may be my actual number one! Accessories really make you feel put together. Even if you throw on the exact same watch, bracelet and earrings everyday it will make you feel like a lady. Trust me! If you want to get really crazy grab one of your cute clutches that you usually save for a night on the town.

4. They don’t have to be super high heels but even a wedge with a cute pair of shorts or jeans make all the difference.

5. Get out of the sweats and into a pair of cuffed jeans to wear to the ballpark or run errands, throw on a comfy white t-shirt and a scarf and you will be the most Fashionable CHICK in town. Hey, if you look so cute no one will notice the fact that your hair is in a ponytail and you haven’t had a chance to take a shower!

You will be ready to conquer the day and feel like a million bucks! Don’t do it for anyone but yourself!
