Monday Musings.


We had a few days of glorious fall weather, then it turned warm again this past weekend… which I love because I am not fully ready to commit to the cold weather! My mom came into town, and we took a couple of day trips to some surrounding Nashville areas over the weekend. It was MUCH needed for both of us! Here are some things that have popped up on my radar this weekend…

Regardless of the warm weather, I am making this soup this week. And my favorite fall scones, too!

The power of a compliment. LOVE THIS!

Really inspired by these beautiful living spaces!

Cool article alert: How you make decisions says a lot about how happy you are.

Obsessed with all things Christine Centenera.

My favorite summertime cocktail is a gin & tonic. This recipe has a fall twist to it!

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Skirt Love.

This Sidney Clark Designs pleated maxi skirt has been the fall equivalent of a maxi dress for me. I've been LOVING it! Worn here with a tank top, it was the perfect fall outfit for the beautiful 70 degree days we've been having lately. Add booties, and you're set! I've also thrown one of Sidney Clark's moto jackets over it for a chic - and slightly warmer - look!

My favorite ways to wear a maxi skirt:

* Pair with a chambray shirt (This and this are good options), cute hat, and booties.

*Add a plain white v-neck t-shirt and scarf for an easy (and comfy) look! My favorite white t-shirts are this Monrow one (I love it both black and white) and this Everlane one!  The Everlane one is AMAZING quality for the $15 price tag, too!

* Tuck in a thin sweater with a high/low hem, like the tuck I've done in the above photo, and let the back hang down. Add boots and a scarf to complete the look! Love this scarf from Sidney Clark Designs because it's long enough to wear many ways.

Happy fall dressing!
