While I am totally not trying to rush Fall, unlike every other human on Instagram..I mean I love a good pumpkin coffee, but I can totally wait until September. With that said, I am excited about fall as it is my favorite season, not only for all the activities, food, pretty scenes, but mainly the weather and the clothes. I love needed that extra later to keep warm on a cool fall day, sitting by a fire at night under a blanket.

I had my first whiff of fall yesterday morning, I was home sick and let the dog out early in the morning, I opened our back door to feel the chill of the air was for once cooler than the air coming out of the house. I immediately turned the A/C off and opened all the windows, I was hoping some fresh air would make my congestion fade as well. Now that I have had  that feel of fall I am going to be counting down the days. I will enjoy the warmth while it is here because we all know we will be complaining come January about how much snow there is and how we can't imagine what the sun feel like.

I have teamed up with Choies to bring you some of my go to fall looks and pieces. Destroyed denim goes with everything, always. Add a oversized sweater or a plaid shirt and graphic tee and you are out the door. The best part, all of these pieces are under $50! Way under....Happy Shopping!

Navy Midi // Two Ways

Skirt: TJMaxx (similar) // Top:  Love Culture (old) // Sunnies: Ditto // Heels: Make Me Chic (similar $30) // Sneakers: Puma // Bag: Free People $68 // Clutch: TJMaxx (fun option) // Necklace: F21 (similar)

One look two ways people! So the first outfit is how I would ideally wear this look, the second look is how I wore this look in Las Vegas when I was running around the entire day and heels would just not cut it. I am happy with how both looks turned out, of course I love the heels, who doesn't but if  you work in a laid back industry like I do, or are running around all day and heels just don't make sense then the second look with sneakers makes sense. My husband told me I looked like a mall walker in the second look, and I think some all white sneakers could have helped me a bit but I wanted to show you all how you can totally transform a look. I also wore this look for real, so don't mine the wrinkles..#realbloggeroutfit. I am really liking this whole one look two ways, or once piece two ways idea so keep an eye out for other options, I just got this adorable long plaid thingy I am going to show you two ways to wear!  WEE! Happy Monday.

Palm Print & Handstands

Legging: Zara Terez exclusively for Carbon 38 // Sports Bra: Michi NY via Carbon 38 // Tank & Sneakers: Puma // Sunnies: Ditto Endless Eyewear Program

What you don't do hand stands in  front of your garage? Well when you live in the middle of now where sometimes you have to make the gym come to you. These Zara Terez leggings that were made exclusively for Carbon 38 make it much easier for me to be willing to workout at home. The oh so trendy summer palm print is a favorite of mine, Zara Terez also makes the cityscape and emoji leggings, you have probably seen them on your instagram and if not you need to head to Carbon 38 now and get a good giggle out of all the fun prints. 

For me workout leggings are a make it or break it when it comes to working out, I am so particular when it comes to what material my leggings are made from. I hate cotton leggings, they breath weird and get so sweaty and are too stretchy, then there are the weird polyester leggings that make your thighs feel like a slip and slide when the rub together (don't even play and say your thighs don't rub together), not a fan of that at all. Or when the material is not thick enough that you can totally see through them or they won't stay and snug around your waist and bum. These leggings are a great material, they are much like the Michi NY ones I wore from Carbon 38 a little while back, not to mention they are so so fun! I have also found that Fabletics makes pretty good leggings with nice, soft and sturdy materials and very reasonable prices.

Feta & Avocado Dip

This dip is one of the easiest and most delicious recipes you will ever learn. It is perfect to have in your back pocket just in-case of last minute company, or if you avocado's are perfectly ripe  and you have 5 minutes before they go bad! At first I wasn't sure how well avocado and feta would mesh, but then I thought about tacos and I love both on tacos so I gave it a try. I made this dip earlier this summer for a wonderful winery picnic Kev and I had. The directions are super easy and it takes minutes to make!

Directions & Ingredients:
Puree together 1 sliced avocado, 3/4 cup feta cheese, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, with a small amount of salt & cracked pepper to taste in blender or food processor. This is perfect served with bread and veggie sticks.
Such a perfect day at Nashoba Valley Winery with my Feta & Avocado dip

Preppy In Newport

Shirt Dress: Ralph Lauren (similar) // Clutch: Walter & George // Shoes: Target // Sunnies: Ditto

I am spending the next few days in Las Vegas for work, but I will be dreaming of this day in Newport. I spent Wednesday & Thursday of last week in Rhode Island with my mom for her birthday. We had the perfect day, went to the Ocean House and got massages in the morning and then took a trip and had an amazing lunch and did some shopping in Newport. The day was a 10, the weather, the food and the company.

I wanted to wear something comfortable and a little preppy to give my nod to Newport. I have had this dress for a few seasons and love it, I also have a similar one in a stunning olive green, that I don't think I will ever get rid of. I think these pieces are not something you wear all the time but a closet staple especially in the summer.  I really love the look and how easy they are, add some classic sandals and a clutch and you are out the door. I also love the little discovery detail on the collar of this dress, I don't usually wear my collar popped, but when I do its a polo shirt dress with RL embroidered on the collar ;)
