Olive green is the new black!! At least for me.
I am addicted to all things olive green. With so many early Fall items being offered in the color olive green, I just can't help myself. It's such a great neutral color and pairs perfectly with so many other colors or neutrals.
I recently noticed how much of this color is in my closet, so I thought I'd show you a few of my favorite pieces.
These utility pants are amazing. They also come in white and grey and are currently on sale! They are so comfy and I love the ankle length.

One of my favorite Fall combinations is skirts and booties.
Both of these are recent purchases from the Nordstrom sale. Unfortunately, the heels sold out crazy quick but I've been watching for re-stocks, so I'll let you know. I did link a similar pair that is still available in many sizes. I had been on the hunt for a pair of open toe sling backs as they are so versatile.
Skirt: Jolt, similar here in all sizes. Tan color here, also love this suede skirt // Tee: Loft (40% off) // Heels: Steve Madden, similar slingback // Purse: Shein, love this crossbody // Gold Bracelet: Kendra Scott // Necklace: Moon & Lola // Sunnies: Tory Burch // Bracelets: Cadyn & Charlie (I wear some combination of their bracelets everyday!)

Right now, thick, dark, beautiful lashes are in!!
Ladies are getting lash extensions or using false lashes to get that desired look. We were introduced to a product that not only thickens your lashes, but also instantly tints them for a fuller, longer, darker look.
Both Katey and I have very light colored lashes. You actually can hardly see them if we aren't wearing mascara. So we were so excited to try this product. The Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara from Target, shows visibly darker lashes in just 2 to 4 weeks of daily use. The formula is a combo of creamy, ultra-black lash volumizer and a lash-tinting complex. I started to notice a darkening before the end of the initial 2 weeks, especially at the base of my lashes. I definitely plan to continue using the mascara daily for continued results.
If you are a Target Cartwheel user, they are offering 25% off Rimmel Cosmetics here!!!
Social Hub followers can read more about the product here
after 2 weeks of daily use
(The pictures don't show much change, but in person I notice a darkening at the base of the lashes. I'm excited to keep using it to see how the ends darken.)

Step 1: Define eye brows using Rimmel Brow This Way Powder Kit
Just like my lashes, my brows are light too. So I always have to fill them in and darken them. I really like this product because it contains the brow wax to shape and fill in the brows and the powder to darken and set your brows. I found the wax to be very natural looking too!
1. wax - to shape brow and fill in
2. powder - to darken and define brow
3. brush - to brush out brows
Step 2: Line your eyes with Rimmel Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eye Liner
Lately I've stopped lining my lash line and have just been lining my water line. I just seem to like that better right now. It also helps to make my lashes pop a little more. This waterproof liner is amazing. It goes on super smooth and easy and lasts all day!!! I highly recommend it.
Step 3: Apply a base coat of mascara using Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara
This product is really amazing. It not only gives volume to your lashes, but also tints them over time, with each application. I usually apply 2-3 coats of this mascara for an even darker look.
Here is my final look. This is a perfect natural day-time look. For a night-time look, I'd amp up my liner and mascara and go for a darker lip!!

1. The flutter sleeves on this striped blouse add such a feminine touch. It will be a game changer in your closet.
2. We live in puffer vests through Fall and even in to Winter. This vest comes in a variety of colors and also this fabulous herringbone print. These are by far our favorite vests! Get them while you can! They usually sell out. Did we mention they are currently on sale?!
3. Low cut-out booties are our favorite. This bootie comes in taupe, black, and coffee and is under $100.
4. The gray granite jewelry line is absolutely gorgeous! Gray goes with everything and will be a go-to staple color. We adore this necklace and the asymmetric cut. Stunning!
5. Suede skirts are gorgeous for Fall. We are smitten with this side button faux suede skirt.
6. We wear plaid shirts on repeat throughout Fall. The neckline and sleeve length of this shirt is feminine perfection!
7. To and from the gym, this hooded jacket is colorful and stylish.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time of year to stock up on all your favorite basics. But it's also a great time to find high-priced items at a huge discount. Brands like Tory Burch, AG, Patagonia, rag & bone, and Michael Kors.
SHOP THE ITEMS:
I've loved my AG jeans for years. They are always an amazing fit, with a little bit of stretch, and are super soft. I think I own 8-10 pairs, all different shades and colors. The pair I'm wearing below are part of the #Nsale and are $81 off. That's a really great price for these jeans. If you've been wanting to try the AG brand, now is a great time.
These are ankle length, but I'm only 5'4", so I still need to roll them once. But the fit is TTS.
These booties are also part of the Nordstrom Sale and are $50 off!!! They also come in black. I love the cutout around the ankle...so cute!!!
Jeans: AG (Sale) // Blouse: Nordstrom // Booties: Vince Camuto (Sale) // Necklace: Baublebar // Bag: Barrington // Sunglasses: Nordstrom
