October Outfit Round Up

BTD weekly brighton keller outfit round up October in Dallas

Happy Monday y’all! I just landed in Aspen, Colorado for the week and am SO excited to spend some time with my family! But first, let’s recap the last week or so of outfits. I realized I haven’t been posting as many OOTDs – I need to GET ON that! I think it’s because I spent the week I got home from Milan getting back into routine. And then last week, I spent a lot of time working on content planning and strategy – and wasn’t really creating content. But I’m hoping to get a lot of content for y’all while I’m here in Aspen! I’ve got my Dad here and he’s gotten REALLY good at that iPhone! hehe – he’s literally THE BEST ever!

plaid blazer, burgundy blouse with mom jeans and slides

I mentioned back at the beginning of the season that I was excited about the plaid blazer trend, but I had no idea it was going to take over the fashion world like it has! It’s been everywhere and I am totally in love. I found this one at Mango – while on my recent trip to Milan – and absolutely love the cut, longer-length, and colors within the pattern. It’s a great one if you’re on the hunt!

I paired it with my high-waisted jeans from forever ago (sold out), but I found a similar pair if you’re interested in the look here! Also, I just purchased these too (no rips in them though and lighter wash) and I’m obsessed with how they look on and the fit is great as well!

And here’s a better look at the shirt underneath – I love it for work and play!

Outfit Details: Structured Plaid Blazer // Trouve Surplice Blouse (wearing size XS) // Levi’s Wedgie Jeans (my exact pair are actually old from Urban Outfitters – I found a similar pair though for this season that I actually purchased for myself!) // Ray-Ban Icon Sunglasses // Gucci Slides

cream cardigan with black jeans and brown booties while pumpkin picking

It isn’t officially Fall until you get yourself some pumpkins huh?! I picked up a few for our front porch last week and was loving all the Fall-ish vibes! I also did an entire blog post on why you need this sweater (it’s $45!) and styled it 3 different ways!

Outfit DetailsBP. V-neck Sweater ($45 – I’m wearing size XS) //  COH Rocket Black Jeans (TTS, love how these are high-waisted) // BP. Booties (my exact ones are old but the ones I linked are super similar that are an amazing price!)

blush pink cardigan, purple silk tank, and black jeans

Can you tell I love this tank? I’ve been wearing it so much the past 2 weeks! It’s been perfect for the random weather in Dallas and for layering :)

Outfit Details: Lush Camisole ($29! wearing size XS) // Leith Cardigan (sold out, similar HERE) // Levi’s 721 Jeans (fit high-waisted, TTS) // Nadri ‘Geo’ Small Round Necklace (wear this one all the time!) // Issaleh Necklace (LOVE this one!)

polka dot ruffle dress with black low heels and gucci marmont bag

Wore this little number to church last weekend. I’d probably only recommend it if you’re a little on the shorter side like me (I’m 5’4″) but if that’s the case for you, I think it’s adorable and perfect for this transitional weather we’re having right now!

Outfit detailsTopshop Polka Dot Ruffle Dress (wearing size US2 – I would size up because it doesn’t have much stretch) // Stuart Weitzman Low Heel (I always size DOWN 1/2 size in SW shoes) // Delphi Moon Necklace // Gucci Marmont Bag

Getting some good work done at one of my favorite little coffee (and brunch/lunch) spots in Dallas, Ascension. I did lots of brain-dumping last Sunday because I’ve had so many things on my mind lately.

If you missed it, last Monday I wrote a pretty honest blog post on how to beat the comparison game with social media. I struggle with this a lot – sometimes even on a daily basis. I also included some photos where things weren’t necessarily as they seemed and told y’all what was really going on – it was fun to do! If you  haven’t read the post yet, you should give it a read (I think you might enjoy!)

Outfit Details: Lush Camisole ($29 – I got in the blue color too! Love it) // Lush Chenille Cardigan (sadly this cardigan is sold out in this color but they’ve still got 2 other really pretty colors available!)

Love the neckline and colors in this Madewell Stripe Mock Neck Sweater that I wore in Florence. And I actually wore it in Dallas 2x but didn’t get a chance to snap an OOTD!

This sweater has been such an easy throw on for me the past 2 weeks while in Dallas! It’s sweatshirt material – super comfortable – and fits a little bit cropped so it’s perfect for high-waisted jeans.

Outfit Details: J.O.A. Ruffle Sleeve Top (wearing size XS – runs a little oversized-ish) // Gucci Marmont Handbag // J Brand High Waisted Jeans // Zara kitten heels

mock neck sweater under $50 for fall 2017

I’ve been loving all the mock neck necklines for sweaters I’ve been seeing this season! This one is $39 and comes in 4 colors! Such a no-brainer if you ask me! I’m wearing size XS.

Outfit DetailsBP. Dolman Sleeve Sweater ($39! Wearing size XS) // Levi’s Wedgie Jeans (I found they run TTS – wearing size 25) // Ray-Ban Highstreet Sunglasses

walking on katy trail in dallas

I mentioned on instagram that I went on a walk Friday morning and listened to a podcast – which is my favorite way to clear my mind when I’m stressed or just need a little lift to my spirits. I shared the link to the one I listened to on facebook – I’d love to have you join the facebook family if you haven’t already!

Outfit Details: Koral Ghost Bra // Zella High Waist Legging // Nike Lunar Running Shoe

Y’all. I am majorly crushing on this cardigan sweater and I was sad to see that it was selling out so fast – so I HAD to share ASAP with y’all! How cute?! I’m loving how “Grandpaw sweaters” are a legit trend this fall. I like how they fit a little oversized! I especially like pairing them with high-waisted jeans because I like how they’re a little longer and create some “levels” to your outfit if that makes sense?

I just got these jeans ($69!) and LOVE LOVE how they fit. They were such a great find and fun true to size. For reference, I’m wearing size 25 and am 5’4″ and they fit perfectly cropped on me (#score – usually I’d have to get them altered!)

Outfit Details: Lush Camisole ($29 – wearing size XS) // Leith Cardigan Sweater (runs a little big, wearing size XS) // Gucci Marmont Handbag // Stuart Weitzman Burgundy Kitten Heels (wearing size 36.5 – LOVE THEM SO MUCH) // BDG Kick flare jeans ($69 – free shipping after $50 so you’re good!)

Packing Outfit Details from Instagram Stories

Last night I was packing for Aspen and shared a few things I’m bringing with me. I obviously don’t have good photos of the outfits yet, but if you were watching, I’ll list out the things I mentioned below:

Lace Top Outfit – (Line & Dot Maura Top) – I mentioned that I loved the high-neckline victorian detail. I got size XS and had them on in my stories with these jeans and my new Dior sling back slides (not available anywhere online but here’s a fun dupe by Sam Edelman I found while looking!)

Orange-y slash tan-colored (maybe? haha) cardigan for $70 that I was wearing with my V-neck Monrow tee, black Madewell high-wasited faded black jeans and Gucci slides

White booties Outfit (wearing size 7 in these) – these are actually the Steve Madden ones and I like them a lot. I really wanted the Dolce Vita ones but they’re sold out in my size at the time (they just restocked though I see!). I actually really like how the SM ones look and they looked cute with the outfit I put together last night (or at least I thought so!). I was wearing this grey sweater (in size US2), these jeans (fit TTS) and this slouchy corduroy moto jacket I just picked up yesterday!

Leather Skirt Outfit – And then I put together an outfit with a leather skirt and black kitten heel sock booties. These booties are the SW ones which are an investment (and worth it in my opinion); I’ve been eyeing them for almost 2 months now and finally pulled the trigger! The leather skirt is OLD by THEORY, but here’s a cute alternative by Topshop for $45 and another one by Madewell for $198. I also have the Missguided one ($44) I wore in this blog post if you want to see what it looks like on and in an outfit (the photo on the website is pretty bad!). I was wearing the booties and skirt with this chunky black sweater (size US2) for those asking!
