My Style: Chill


It's been one of those weeks where I feel like I can't get my head above water. I even tried to get posts scheduled ahead of time and I failed miserably. Please tell me I'm not the only having one of those weeks!

This outfit is one that I threw together a couple weeks ago when there was a chill in the air and I was looking for an excuse to wear my new boots. Has anyone put pumpkins out yet? I'm thinking this weekend might be the time to go to the farmer's market!

What's In My Travel Bag with Vera Bradley


When it comes to traveling (and life, in general), I have to stay organized. Everything is folded, rolled, tucked, and compartmentalized to the extreme. Just another reason that Vera Bradley is my luggage brand soul sister - is that a thing?! Don't care, it's true! This company, as I mentioned in this post, thinks of everything and creates pieces that exceed every expectation. I've been traveling with Vera Bradley luggage since I was in high school and have never found a brand that I love more.

I visited my parents over Labor Day weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday and get in one final getaway of the summer. Of course, these pieces were packed to the brim with sundresses and sandals! The Frame Travel Bag is the perfect size for an overnighter, with tons of pockets for keeping everything organized. The two travel accessories that I used were the Jewelry Organizer and the Ditty Bag (see pictures of both below). The Jewelry Organizer features a fold open design with see-through compartments, pockets, and a ring strap in the middle. Finally, the champion of every trip I take is my Ditty Bag. It's fully lined in plastic, drawstrings at the top, and will (literally) expand to fit every toiletry under the sun! See more pics of what I packed for the weekend and get details below!

Style File: Sole Society Fringe Booties


Is that a chill I feel in the air?! Yep! Fall is literally right around the corner - talk about happy! Especially when I can start pulling out my favorite cool weather accessories. I'm so excited to have two lovely ladies joining me today to feature the new Sole Society fringe booties - these will be your go-to all season! I met both Liz and Lacey through the Southern Blog Society and couldn't ask for more stylish bloggers to join me today for Style File

You got a little sneak peek of this outfit last week in this post and I couldn't wait to feature the whole look. Chambray is one of my favorite cool weather/layering fabrics and this basic chambray dress can be mixed and matched so many different ways! Pop over to What Dress Code and A Glimpse of Glitter to see the other ladies' looks!
