FALLING FOR FALL GIVEAWAY

It's GIVEAWAY DAY!!!  WAHOO!!  I LOVE a GIVEAWAY!

I'm teaming up with one of my favorite bloggers, Fancy Ashley, and we're giving away...


TWO $100 NORDSTROM GIFT CARDS!

One for YOU, the winner, and one for you to share with a friend.  See the Rafflecopter below for ways to enter to win.  The contest will close at 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday.  We'll announce the winner on Thursday, the 29th.


Today is the FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF FALL!  We're in search of all the fall weather here in Texas!  #someonesenditourway

I've been boycotting shorts because I'm over them, BUT the weather could care less.  I'm the only one suffering in my jeans.  ha!


I've highlighted some things over the last couple weeks that will be PERFECT for fall.  When it finally decides to show up that is!  But nevertheless, I'll be ready!  And the winner of the gift card will be ready as well.  :)


In case you missed any, here are some great fall items...


Fringe Booties (ON SALE-come in three colors)
Lucky Brand Booties (Lots of colors available-if you're looking for a lower heel, these are for you!)
Toms Perforated Booties (50% off-great price!)
Jessica Simpson Bootie (These were a birthday gift and I LOVE them.  They come in two colors.)

AG Jeans (Great deal right now!-This brand is my favorite.  My super frugal husband who doesn't like to spend much on his clothes MIGHT have tried a pair of AG jeans on last year and bought himself TWO pair he was that impressed.  HUGE endorsement right there, girls!)

Lush Tee (Certain colors are on BIG sale-includes olive, perfect for fall!)
Caslon Tee (All the great basic colors)
Z Supply Tee (I have both a small and an extra small.  The small requires a cami underneath because it's so low.  The extra small doesn't.  This comes in camo, but I wouldn't recommend the camo.  After one wash, the camo is pretty see-through.


White Top: Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Booties:  Here

I LOVED this top!  I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, but the see-through parts hit my stomach at the jeans.  So you could see nothing-if you know what I mean.

Top:  Here
Distressed Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Booties:  Here
Black Jeans:  Here
Flats:  Here

This top was another one a little "outside my box" but it SCREAMED fall to me online.  I love the colors!

Top:  Here
Shorts:  Similar here.

I sized up in this plaid top.  I'm super lazy when it comes to laundry and we either dry clean or we wash/dry.  When it comes to plaid shirts, they tend to shrink a bit and get WAY to short for my long torso.  I sized up with the hopes that won't happen.

Top:  Here
Cami:  Here
Shorts:  Similar here.
Wedges:  Here

I thought this top was fun and a perfect transition from summer to fall type of top. You definitely need a camisole.  If you're crazy long waisted, you could size up with the length in mind.

Blazer:  Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Flats:  Here

I ALWAYS want to try to pull off a blazer when I see pictures.  Seriously, I daydream about pulling them off, but I just can't do it.  This "boyfriend" style blazer was super comfy, but it just isn't me.

Sweater: Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

I was a HUGE fan of this sweater.  It was super lightweight.  I'm thinking wear it (HOPEFULLY) in the next couple months and layer up in the winter.

Top:  Here

This mustard color with my military jacket is going to be CUTE this fall.  

Top:  Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Flats:  Here

This lush top comes in many colors and it's a great price.  Because I'm long waisted, I need a cami, but I don't think everyone will.

Top:  **RESTOCKED** Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

I love a cute football tee-shirt.  :)

Top: Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

My hair is covering the spaghetti straps, but I really liked this.  I find myself always grabbing the same thing for girl's night or date night.  This top will deliver on both of those occasions!

Top:  Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

Another GREAT transition top...it's super light.  You need a camisole, but we can throw on a scarf or jacket when the temperatures begin to drop.

Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

*STEAL OF THE DAY*
Can you tell the difference in these vests?  No?  Me neither.
I bought one from Altar'd State because it was SCREAMING, "THANKSGIVING", when I saw it in the store, but a week later Amy from KenLeeCait surprised me with almost the EXACT one in the mail.  (THANK YOU, AMY!!)  And KenLeeCait's version is HALF-PRICE!!  WAHOO!  Check it out! 

 Sweater:  Similar here.  Mine is sold out.
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Flats:  Here

I've been seeing some cute stuff from Billabong and finally decided to give this sweater a try.  I'm SO glad I did.  Super comfy but still giving off the pulled together vibe.  :)

Stripe Top:  Similar here.  Mine is sold out.
Vest:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

The kiddos surprised me with this puffer vest for my birthday with Tab's help and this striped top I ordered looks so cute with it.

Sweater:  Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)

The slit in this sweater makes it a little more fun!

Top:  Here
Cami:  Here
Jeans:  Here (mine are a darker version)
Flats:  Here

Until the weather cooperates, I'll be turning down the A/C, layering up, and dreaming of the day it gets below ninety degrees.  #dreamingbig
