It's Friday!  Sharing an easy fall look with you on today's post.  This one is perfect for those cooler days when you want to layer just a little.  When it gets even colder, just toss on a simple cardigan or jacket and you're all set!

How cool is this wrap bracelet for fall?  Love the color and it goes with almost everything!
Dress (basically the navy sleeveless dress I wore so much this summer, except this one has sleeves; fit is true to size, I'm wearing a small) // Fringe Boots (these run big, I'm an 8.5 and wearing an 8 in these) // Sunnies // Scarf (only $29!) // Wrap Bracelet

On Wheeler: Dress // On Effie: Dress // Fringe Boots

In case you missed yesterday's post, since it was the first day of Fall, I shared my 'Top 10 Fall Picks.'  Click on items in pic or links below.  There are more fit details on yesterday's post, along with a fun giveaway.  This scarf is included in it!  Hurry though, the giveaway ends at midnight!

It's Fall, Y'all! + Top 10 Fall Picks + A Fall Giveaway! + Tory Burch Sale!

 
After all this talk about Fall for the past few weeks, it's finally here!  I'm not sure that means the weather will automatically cool here, but it's the mentality.  I'm excited to pick up my first PSL today to kick off the new season!  What are your plans?

While I obviously love summer the most, fall is runner-up...especially when the air starts cooling off just a tad, and there's a gentle breeze, a tiny chill.  When I say tiny, I mean that.  Winter is my least favorite.  Unless I'm skiing or there's a fun snowstorm, cold chills don't rank high in my book.  Yes, the season brings some pretty important holidays, but for as much time as we spend outside, the weather limits us to enjoying the sun as as often as we're used to.  But anyway, back to fall, we're already getting those cool low 70s mornings, and I'm pretty happy with that.  Sooner or later, that kind of weather will stay all day long.  I'll be able to wear a light layer or scarf more days soon.  Looking forward to that.


Without further ado, I'm sharing my current top 10 favorite Fall pieces lately.  Would love to add any of these to my closet this season...

Check Woven Scarf
Love the neutrality of this one.  Would go with just about everything in your wardrobe.  You can't beat that it's only $29!

Essie Berry Naughty
A perfect shade for Fall.  Painting my nails this color soon.  Can't wait!

Tory Burch Puzzle Ring
Love this ring.  Would coordinate with so many fall outfits.  Currently on sale too!

Lilly Pulitzer Jersey Dress (also available here)
Like my love for the navy, sleeveless Essie Dress this summer, this is basically the same dress with sleeves.  Perfect for Fall!


Minnetonka Fringe Boots
I've had these in the brown color for a few years now and still continue to love them.  This year they came out with this taupe color!  Wearing them in an outfit post tomorrow.  I'm an 8.5 and wear an 8 in these.

Paige Jeans & AG Jeans
I wore both of these jeans on Tuesday's post, if you want a better view of what they look like on.  After shopping around for the best day and evening jeans, these were by far my favorite!  Would you believe that our Boozer, who we've had since he was a little baby, will be 10 next month!?

Le Specs Sunnies ($59)
I got these sunglasses before our Spring Break trip to Key West earlier this year.  They're a pretty smoky grey with silver lens.  With all the grey I've been loving lately, these sunnies would pair so well with all of it.

Splendid Clog
Another favorite I know I've mentioned in previous posts, but I finally had a chance to wear these for most of the day yesterday, and they're super comfy.  They're tall though, so if you're planning on being on your feet for most of the day, I'd consider a shorter height.  I love the height because they elongate your legs so well, but they're comfortable too.  For fit, I'm an 8.5 and wear a 9 in these.  I'm wearing them in my OOTD pic below too, if you want a better idea of how they look on.

Purple Drop Earrings
I'm all about tassels, but these feathered ones are so lightweight which is a big bonus!  Adore this color for Fall too!

What I Wore Yesterday

 Top // Jeans // Platform Clog // Necklace

Wednesday Whereabouts

 
 This past weekend, we celebrated Logan's 5th birthday, and he had a ball!  His actual birthday was on Friday, the 16th.  His little classmates sang him happy birthday, and it was the cutest thing.
Ever since the kids saw a rainbow for the first time last month, we've been seeing them all the time.  We saw this on on Friday night, after a quick shower.
 Logan asked to go fishing on his birthday, so we did just that.
 This little guy would NOT let this fish go!
We caught a trout, two skates and two crabs.  All in all, I'd say that it was a pretty good day!
On Saturday, we headed to a fun park with lots of games and arcades for his party.  He loved every minute of it!  // Posted about my scarf on Monday's post.
He was pretty excited about his Peanuts/Hulk cake.
 Later on that day, we headed up to meet some friends on the beach.  My friend Kristen was sweet enough to surprise Logan with these Spiderman cupcakes!  
 Love this girl so much!  Our oldest children have known each other since they were first born!
 You wouldn't believe it that it rained downtown while we were out here.  Crazy how the weather is in Charleston!
Headed home.  So grateful to live here! // Striped Tassel Tunic // Pink Tassel Tunic
 We had some friends in town from Charlotte that were vacationing here for the week.  It's always so great to catch up with friends from home!  Logan could fit right in with their two sons.
They've never met a pool they didn't like.
One happy crew!  Effie looks tall here, but she's still about an inch shorter than Wheeler.
Another beautiful rainbow last night.
An added perk of the boat is getting to capture some pretty amazing pictures.  Took this one on Saturday night under the Ravenel Bridge.
In case you missed yesterday's post, I shared two fall looks featuring this top that I love!  And both of these jeans are my favorites this season and will be worn on repeat.

This is another tunic that I mentioned was a fave last week.  Well, it just came in and I love it!  Another one that covers my rear (winner!) and a great comfy top too!

Hope y'all are having a great week so far!
Fall starts tomorrow!
