Turtleneck | Plaid Skirt | Boots

My favorite season is going by so quickly! With my sister's wedding this month seemed to just fly by and I'm so excited to celebrate Halloween and really start the holiday season. As you may be aware of, fall is also my favorite season for fashion, because I find it's way easier to get creative with layering or styling different textures together. This year I really needed to upgrade the basics in my wardrobe and I found some amazing success with Walmart! They always have great affordable fashion, but they truly stepped up this year, I mean look at this skirt! 😍

Turtleneck | Plaid Skirt | Boots

I love a good turtleneck, and I ordered this one in a few colors! The material is soft, not too thin that it's see through, but not so thick that it feels suffocating. It's absolutely a steal and if you're looking for the perfect layering basic for fall and winter, this is it! It goes so well with other solids, or style it with a fun pattern like this plaid skirt. The skirt also comes in a brighter yellow, so you can mix and match to create a look that best matches your vibe! This outfit is so easy to throw on and look cute, definitely must haves this season!

White Sweater | Knit Pants | Similar Boots

Looking for something when the weather is a bit chillier? This all knit look is the way to go! The second I felt the material of these pants I knew they were going to be a go-to comfort item this fall! It's a structured but soft knit so you could get away with wearing these to the office but also out to dinner with the girls depending on how you style them, but either way you'll feel like you're in the comfort of sweats because of the way these are made. Honestly a dream come true!

Something about this sweater screams put together, maybe it's all the clean lines. I love dressing it a bit down with the knit pants for a more "I've got things to accomplish, but I'd like to be comfortable" OOTD. Walmart's knits section is so good this year and has a ton of pieces that fit the structured yet cozy style!

Summer Brights And Basics

Midi Dress

It's that time of year when I want nothing more than to be equal parts cute as I am comfortable with my wardrobe! Even with July nearly over, we still have so much summer left to enjoy! The heat may be my worst enemy, but luckily here in California I don't have to deal with much humidity like I did back when I lived in Dallas. Anything over 75 and I'm sweating it out though, so I'm always looking for summer styles that are not only cute, but leave me feeling breezy and cool as well. I'm a sucker for a summer dress, my favorite staple for the warmer months, and anything with a flare is an instant add to cart! I'm also not one to shy away from a bright color or bold print, so when I saw the new fashion line from Free Assembly at Walmart I already had a few pieces I knew I would be wearing all summer long. They have a ton of styles to mix and match to fit every occasion and vibe this summer! Whether you're a fan of mixing patterns (because there's no such thing as too much print!), layering basics, or doing a little of both! 

 White Bubble Top | Flutter Skirt | Wide Leg Pants 

If you can't tell, I'm a huge fan of the color orange lately! It's such a fun trend and is actually one of my sister's wedding colors, so I've been interacting with the color a lot in my life. Orange is looking to be THE color of the summer and is sure to make you stand out and make a statement. I've naturally been gravitating towards all the orange in my closet because of this, so I was obviously drawn to this gorgeous midi dress straight away! I also can't wait to pull out these wide leg pants for literally all of my on the go days. They're so easy to throw on and are thick enough to be comfortable, but not hot or frumpy. They have just the right structure to make you look put together, all you need is a cute top to go with it. Pair it with an elevated basic like this white bubble top or a fun patterned blouse and off you go!

 Bold colors not really your thing? Don't worry! Free Assembly also has such a large variety of fun prints and other summer basics, so there's something for everyone! I'm always a fan of a flirty flutter skirt (try saying that three times fast), and this blue and white pattern is so sweet and perfect for anything from date night to bbqs with family. 

What's more your style? Bold colors or fun prints?

Self Care is always high on my list, but when the holidays roll around my routine can start to slip as I get more and more stressed. With all the social gatherings, making sure I get all the right gifts, and all the other craziness that happens during the holiday season, it makes me want to forget all my self care until I cross off my long to-do list. And it's even more important to take care of your skin during these colder months!

Black Friday Deals For Days

There are SO MANY great Black Friday deals happening, especially at Walmart! But I wanted to put the focus more on practical items this year. As much as I love my beauty goodies, new clothes, and honestly shopping for everything, it's important for me to put my money on the things I actually need. Tech is at the front of that list, for two reasons! 1) This is best time of the year to make bigger purchases, especially tech ones. 2) These are the things I actually need! And I'm willing to bet that these items are on a lot of wish lists lately!

Can you believe we're already halfway into November? I'm more than ready for the holidays so I'm glad time is seemingly flying by! In the blogging world having my first gift guide of the season right now is actually considered late, haha, but this year everyone seems to be flowing a bit more on their own time. As for gifts, luckily Walmart is my one stop shop for everyone on my list!
