An easy Fall outfit

Who else is ready to welcome October tomorrow?

I can't believe how fast this month, heck, this year, has gone!!  It's now officially Fall and I absolutely love this time of year!  Besides the obvious love of pumpkins, mums, apple picking and cooler weather...I love Fall clothes.

Juvly Medspa - Answering all your questions about Botox/Dysport + My results

When I turned 40, I started seeing the signs of aging.  Many I'm good with, a couple made me self-conscious and so I decided to do something about it.  I started going to Juvly Medspa (cosmetic dermatology) back in February.  (You can read all about why in this Juvly post.) I love that Juvly is a non-surgical aesthetics practice.  They are innovative and have found ways to get results without surgery. 
I strongly believe that everyone should do what is right for them.  If you have any interest in any sort of aesthetic treatment (even just a facial), I highly recommend Juvly

Be ready for the Fall & Winter with The Great Outdoor Provision Company

Boy did my state of NC get hit hard by Hurricane Florence just over a week ago!!

It was supposed to travel straight through the state and pass over us here in Raleigh, but it took a turn South instead.  But that still left us with wind and days and days of rain!!  The kids were out of school for 3 days, so many people were affected by flooding and power losses.  We were lucky enough to have been spared by all that, but I know those on our Eastern coast are still recovering.

Thank heavens for these Sperry rain booties from The Great Outdoor Provision Company in Cameron Village getting me through all those rainy days.

Most popular Fall items last week

The top favorites last week were 2 perfect Fall layering pieces. 

 This fleece vest comes in 6 colors and so soft and cozy.  Perfect now over light-weight tops and later over sweaters.  I'm a huge fan of vests!  I prefer them over heavy, bulky coats.  You'll see me wearing a variety of vests all through Fall and Winter.

The other top favorite was this ribbed henley.  It's available in 7 colors and currently on sale!  An amazing price for an item you'll wear on repeat!  Seriously, wear under a vest like this, alone, under a cardigan or blazer.  So cute!

Native deodorant Q & A

Yesterday I shared all about my morning routine and why I switched to Native, a natural deodorant. 

On Instagram stories, I asked if any of you had questions.
The response of questions was huge!  So I thought the easiest way was to compile the questions and answers here for you.  


Does it work as well as conventional deodorants?

Yes.  It just works differently  It won't stop you from sweating by clogging your pores like traditional deodorants.  But it does prevent odors.

My morning routine with Native

The morning routine.

It's different for everyone but with the same goal in mind - maximize efficiency in as little amount of time as possible.
One part of my morning routine that has stayed constant throughout the last year is Native Deodorant.

Tips for styling a White handbag for Fall and Winter

Ok ladies - ready to break the rules!?

Anymore, I think most of us go ahead and wear our white jeans all year long, breaking the "no white after Labor Day" rule.  But it doesn't have to stop with our jeans.

There is something so chic about a white handbag.  I think we should carry them year-round too!!!  

Today I thought it would be fun to share my 3 tips on making a white handbag work for Fall and Winter.  Along the same lines as a chic white bag are off-white and grey bags.  So pretty and light.  


White Satchel c/o - ON SALE!!  Over $200 off right now

Suede Skirt Styled 2 Ways

Don't you love when you find something and it can be worn a handful of ways?

 More bang for your buck!!  I especially love when it can be both dressed up with a blouse or more casual with sneakers depending on my mood.  

Skirts are an easy piece to create multiple outfits with.  And right now, skirts are trending for Fall.  Jean skirtssuede skirts and corduroy skirts are all great materials for Fall.

Sneaker Obsession

One thing we know for sure...sneakers are HUGE for Fall!!!

And not just for your jeans and tee look.  Think outside the box.  They go with everything!  Worn with skirts and dresses...they are just too cute!  This trend is right up our alley.  We are all about cute and comfy.

If this look is new to you, you can always start with a classic white sneaker.  There's something about a clean white sneaker that I love!  A few linked below are super affordable too, like this pair.

Another huge trend this Fall (and every other Fall) is leopard.  So of course, we've linked a few leopard options.  I ordered this pair and can't wait for them to come!!  They are similar to this more expensive pair.

I know you'll be seeing us in sneakers a lot this Fall!!

Favorite Products for Our Face

Nowadays, we constantly hear how important it is to take care of our skin and face.  Use SPF, stay out of the sun, hydrate... Unfortunately in our younger days it really wasn't a thing.  We baked in the sun and tanning beds and really didn't protect our face and skin like we should've.  So now it's catch up time for us.  

We need products to really hydrate our skin, to help with aging, fighting wrinkles and just the overall appearance of our skin.  

We've been using Colleen Rothschild products for a couple years now and love them!  We can't say enough good things about them. 


And luckily, if you want to try (which you totally should) any of our favorites, they are now  20% off with code LABORDAY20.

CLEANSERS:  Before you can even start using our favorite oils and moisturizers, you have to have a clean face!!  It's so important to get all the makeup off and to really clean out those pores!!  That's one thing we've always done, even on really late nights out on the town.  We always wash our face before bed!!!  The radiant cleansing balm is so luxurious feeling and smells amazing!!  And of course, it gets off all that makeup!!

OILS: You wouldn't think face oils would be something you'd want to use...I mean no one wants an oily face!  But ladies, these help so much with hydration!!  I use either the oil No*9 or the retinol supreme night oil at night right after I wash my face and in the morning my face is so incredibly soft!! The age renewal super serum also really helps to hydrate over night.  I put this on on top of the oil.

MOISTURIZERS: These are the products we use both morning and night!!  Before our face primer and makeup and then at night over top the oils.  The sheer renewal cream is amazing!!  Probably the item I'd suggest if you were only going to try 1 product!!!  It has a light, almost powdery, finish so it is perfect for under makeup.  No greasy feeling.  And really helps boost the moisture at night when used with the face oils!!  Then of course, the complete eye cream!!  So good for those tired, puffy eyes.  It also helps with the fine lines that start creeping in around our eyes as we get older!!  We use this morning and night to really plump up that area!!

Pink Magnolia Boutique - Early Fall finds

Happy Tuesday ladies!!  
Can you believe it's the last day of July?  Holy heck, how the Summer is flying by. 

 Luckily for us, we still have 4 weeks til the kids go back to school.  I actually really love having them home with me!  I'm sure I can only say that because they are older and more self-sufficient.  I sure remember how hard it was when they were younger and needed entertained all Summer long.

A couple weeks ago, I introduced you all to one of my favorite local boutiques, The Pink Magnolia Boutique (read about my last visit here).   I stopped in last week to see their new arrivals (remember they get new arrivals all the time).  So I thought I'd share my finds with you!

Use code NEW20 for 20% off your order!!



Off The Shoulder Top (wearing a S) // Jeans (TTS) // Flip Flops ($8) // Circle Straw Bag

This yellow color is so big for Fall!!  Add an off-the-shoulder fit and bell sleeves and you've got one heck of a top!!!  And I love the subtle polka dot details.

Summer Vacation Style with Evereve

Summers should be full of adventure!!

Every year my husband and I love to create family vacations that provide an escape from the everyday routine, show the kids an area of the country they haven't seen before, and create fun, lasting memories.
This year it was Big Sky, Montana and Jackson Hole, Wyoming!

This area was new to all of us!!

I'm so excited to be teaming up with Evereve to share our #chaseyoursun adventure and how dressing for our Summer vacay was a breeze!


The perfect travel look!!

Joggers (wearing xs)
I sized down to an xs as joggers tend to stretch out a little as you wear them.  I highly recommend these.  Cute stripes, a cozy (not bulky) fleece material, and pockets!!
