Currently Coveting

I absolutely LOVE this Tory Burch bag! It is the perfect Fall transitional color and really, I could probably carry it during all four seasons. The only part I'm not super fond of is the fact that there isn't a zipper at the top. I really worry about all my stuff falling out. However, my new Rebecca Minkoff doesn't have a zipper either and even though I thought it would be a problem, I really haven't had any issues with it!

I don't know what it is about totes right now, but that has been all I've been interested in. You can fit so much in a tote! They are cute and versatile! Gosh, I have a serious purse problem! I want to buy this bag, but because Christmas is SO CLOSE (86 days away!), I am trying to refrain from making impulse buys for myself. I try to save my money so I can buy great Christmas gifts for my friends and loved ones! After all, that is my favorite holiday! :)

What do you guys think; Should I wait, or go ahead and buy?!

I absolutely HATE getting stuck in the rain, especially when I feel like I have on a cute outfit. However, wearing fall colors allows me to get caught in the rain and still feel cute! The dark colors don't really stain from the water and my makeup holds up well.

I was so excited when I found this cute dress on sale at Nordstrom last week! It is super comfortable and long enough for me to wear it for many different occasions. On this day I wore it to work and it started raining! Luckily I had an umbrella so I didn't get totally caught in the rain.

If y'all haven't figured it out already, this wine color is like my go to for fall! Seriously, it's just something about this deep red, burgundy color I just cannot get enough of. So naturally, I am obsessed with this bag!

Kate Spade + Big Versatile Bag + Wine = MINE!

I'm trying so hard not to make impulsive decisions when it comes to shopping, but it is really hard! I truly think this bag will be a good investment piece though because it can go with a lot of different outfits and I can carry it literally through like March!

What do you guys think?! BUY or BYE?!

Now that Labor Day has passed, Fall is right around the corner! YAY! Summer is finally winding down and although I am extremely excited for Fall to come, I do love wearing bright colors in the summer time! I mean, yellow is my favorite color of all time and summer is the best time to wear yellow.

This dress SCREAMS summer! I am completely obsessed and I hate I only got to wear it twice this summer! These flowers, the colors, the style! SO SUMMER! :) Not to mention, it has pockets y'all!

I have to figure out what I am going to do with all of my summer clothes when the summer is over because once I add my fall/winter clothes back to it, they won't all fit! I think I might have to go through and give more things away in order to keep up with my shopping problem. Hmmm any suggestions for my overhaul of clothing?! I'll take all suggestions! :)

Fall Favorites

Only 21 days until FALL!!! EEK! I literally cannot wait! My boots, scarves, leggings, and sweaters are calling my name! I am trying to hold out on wearing some of my favorite things so I won't have a heat stroke, but I am seriously ready to break out some of my favorite cardigans!

I've picked out some fall items I have had my eye on for a little while now. I have been trying a new thing where I window shop a lot. I will window shop and save items that I really like to a wish list or the cart. If I find that I can't take my mind off of it for a couple days or a week, then I'll probably end up buying it. That way, I will feel better about all the shopping I do! :) I have to start somewhere you guys! I tried doing a no shopping challenge and failed! I'm not just not ready for that. So for now, I will just try to buy more responsibly.

Tell me guys, how do you control your shopping? Am I the only one who has a problem? What are some of your favorite fall pieces? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading! XOXO

Last weekend, I wore this outfit to brunch with my husband. We went to brunch at my cousins' restaurant, Bier Fest. You guys, if you live in the Nashville area, I am telling you that this place is a MUST! Not just because he's my cousin, but because the food is AH-MAY-ZING!

My favorite meal is the Hot Chicken and Waffles. YA'LL! It tastes SO GOOD! I can't even explain it, you just have to go see for yourself. I am also in love with their hot fried pickles. Seriously, if you love fried pickles and you love spicy foods, then you'll love these. When you go, just ask for Jam's pickles! They aren't called that on the menu, but I have claimed them to be my own, so there you go! I'm sure they will know what you're talking about. :)

If you're not a fan of spicy foods, don't worry! They have a wide variety of foods from deep fried burgers to seared salmon to Cajun chicken. SO many delicious options, you just have to go. They are open Tuesday-Saturday from 3p-midnight, and Sunday's for brunch from 11a-3p. Prepare to be hooked! :)

Side note: Can we talk about how much of a STEAL these shoes are?! First of all, I LOVE them! I wanted the Steve Madden fringe shoes that look just like these for $130, so when I saw these on Lulu's and they literally look almost identical, I knew I had to have them. They are super comfortable and perfect for Fall. Can't wait to wear all the time!

Thanks for reading! XOXO
