We finally made it to Friday, and I’m so looking forward to the weekend. When it comes to weekend style, I love a good jeans and tee outfit. I know I talk a lot about outfit toppers here on the blog, but they really are the best. Jackets and vests are my fav for layering and can really pull together an outfit.
I’ve been loving 70’s-inspired pieces of the past couple of seasons, but I still hadn’t tried a bell sleeve top until recently. I was drawn to this one because, of course, stripes. But also I love the embroidery detail. It felt a little like a more classic, preppy version if there is such a thing!
Going to the apple orchard is one of my favorite yearly traditions. Aaron and I have been going for several years but it’s one of those things that’s become increasingly fun now with a child. This year Layla carried her own bag, picked her own apple, and enjoyed playing among the trees. Although I’m pretty sure her highlight was the apple cider donut. Like father like daughter, I guess?!

As someone who spends way too much of her life trying on clothes and styling outfits, I know about all of the frustrations that come with clothing and all of the wardrobe issues we encounter. It can be so difficult for many women, including myself, to purchase items off the rack and have them fit exactly the way we’d like. But honestly, who has time and funds to get every single item professionally tailored? And when sweaters start to pill or a hemline has to be adjusted, how many times have you just discarded an item or placed it in a pile of items to be repaired only for it never to be worn again? I am so guilty!
Although I’m not a sewer or super-crafty when it comes to clothing fixes and repairs, there are still some adjustments that I can do by myself at home. And you can too! I promise it’s easy! 😉 I recently learned about the Scotch™ Essentials line, which provides simple no-sew solutions for so many different wardrobe issues. I picked up a few items from the line recently and put together a little Wardrobe Kit that every woman needs at home!
Happy Monday! I hope y’all had a great weekend. After a few rainy, cool weekends, we finally had some sunshine here in Virginia, and it was just perfect! Yesterday we made a drive to Charlottesville to do a little apple picking with Layla. It’s become a yearly tradition, but this is the first year that Layla was actually able to participate, which was so fun. And what’s better is that our weekend isn’t over! Aaron took the day off today, so we’re enjoying a little more family time, and I’m not complaining one minute about it! 😉
And now onto all the outfit details!! I had been wanting a pair of heeled over the knee boots for awhile, but as a mom (and honestly someone who just prefers comfort when it comes to shoes), I didn’t want a high heel. These from Sole Society are just perfect. I’m on the taller side (5’7″) with long legs, and these still come over my knee, which is awesome! You don’t know how many pairs just end up looking like regular ole knee high boots on me! I also love how comfortable they are. One word of warning though, since it only has a lower zipper portion, you might break a sweat trying to take them off. I finally figured out this really nice technique of pulling to a certain angle and then flopping my foot around until they slide off. I’m sure it’s super-fun to watch and not spazz-y at all.
