Style Diary :: Easy Fall Dressing

Posted on 2 min read

Happy Monday!  Where did the weekend go!?  I’m definitely not ready for it to be Monday already!  We had such a great trip to North Carolina; R’s soon-to-be stepsister’s wedding was beautiful, all our traveling went well, and we had a wonderful time hiking in Jefferson and exploring Charlotte!  The weather was so lovely too!  I wore this outfit yesterday, and it was perfect for walking around in the sunny fall weather.

I just love how feminine and ruffle-y this blouse is; it elevates any outfit!  I try to keep several neutral but not plain/pretty tops in my closet as it makes dressing for work incredibly easy.  I just throw one on with some jeans and pumps or boots, and I’m ready to go!   I picked it up from Ann Taylor when I got this white one a few weeks back, and have been wearing it to work quite a bit since.  I’ve always been a huge fan of LOFT, but I’m slowly becoming just as big of a fan of Ann Taylor!  I love how pretty, feminine, and polished their clothes (especially their blouses) are!  They’ve also been having some great sales lately; if I’m remembering correctly, this top and my white one from last Monday were both under $40!  While it might seem a bit high for a sale piece, their clothes are such great quality, I feel it’s worth it!  Lately, (since starting to try to curate a good seasonal & year round capsule wardrobe, which you can read more about here) I’m starting to spend a bit more on wardrobe essentials when I can, as I really appreciate the pieces I have that are good quality and last for a while.  After all, when you fall in love with something and spend your hard-earned money on it, the last thing you want is for it to shrink, fall apart, or look ratty after a couple of wears!  I used to be a quantity over quality person, but have flipped quite a bit on that…  I think I’m turning into my dad!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope all of your weeks are off to a great start!
