Happy Monday friends! I have been sick for almost the past two weeks, but I’m finally on my way back to the land of the living and I am so happy to be on the mend. It’s not so bad to be confined to your bed for a couple of days, but a couple of weeks? Not so much. Life is starting to get back to normal and I am so thankful!

Today I am back with another adorable dress from Dallas & Dottie Boutique. I have gotten so many cute pieces from D & D recently (you can read a little more about this local Michigan boutique here) and I’m excited to share more of them with you in upcoming blog posts. This burgundy suede dress is so on trend for fall. We are seeing a lot of this deep burgundy color and I love it combined with the rich texture of the suede fabric. Even though this dress is sleeveless, something about suede evokes warmth to me and makes it perfect for this time of year. We actually took these pictures a few weeks ago when it was a little warmer and there were still green leaves on the trees. Now that the cooler weather seems like it might be here to stay (although you never know in Michigan – fingers crossed that I’m wrong) I will just add some tights and a sweater as we transition into winter.

I hope you are all staying healthy and enjoying this beautiful time of year. As much as I love summer, I do love being warm and cozy indoors, settling in and nesting with the ones I love. Come January I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune, but for now I’m embracing the change in seasons. Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week?! Then Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye! I am so not ready…….are you?

Truly,

Tamara

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. I’ve always loved dressing up, jack-o’-lanterns, scary movies and all things that go bump in the night. I have such wonderful memories of running around my neighborhood with leaves crunching under my feet, trick or treating with my best friends. My mom always wanted me to dress up as something sweet like a princess or an angel, but much to her dismay I always wanted to be a witch, a vampire or Morticia Addams. It was Halloween and I wanted to be something scary! Not much has changed even though I’ve grown up, I still love Halloween just as much as I did then. I just wish that I could go back in time and run around the neighborhood with my best friends again.

I hope you have a delightfully spooky Halloween! :)

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List – Modcloth Fall Favorites

Is it really Wednesday again? Well I’m back with yet another edition of Wednesday’s Love List and this week I’m highlighting one of my go to on-line shops, ModCloth. I can’t tell you how many things I have ordered from them over the last few years, Modcloth is the first place I go when I’m in the market for another vintage inspired piece and they never disappoint. Aside from their amazing clothes, I absolutely love the reviews, complete with customers measurements and sizes and the super easy free returns. It makes the entire on-line shopping experience so much more enjoyable.

1. I have this same dress in black and I love it, so imagine my excitement when I saw this plaid one.

2. I have wanted this satchel for a while now. It is a little out of my usual price range, but it’s classic color and style make it worth investing in.

3. I literally gasped when I saw this coat! It’s beautiful red color and fit & flare style make it my dream coat.

4. This hat is cozy and adorable! It is also the perfect neutral color to go with all of my fall and winter coats.

5. You know I love a midi skirt and this black and ivory plaid is perfection. The color and style are so versatile and would work for all seasons no matter where you live.

6. I fell in love with this top the second I saw it. That collar with cats on it, I mean come on, it’s killing me with cuteness! (It’s not available to order yet, but it will be soon, so keep your eyes out for it.)

I know that there are a lot of Modcloth fans out there, so I would love to know what items you are loving this fall. Happy Wednesday!:)

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List – Ruche Fall Favorites

Happy hump day everyone! In this weeks edition of Wednesdays’s Love List I am featuring one of my long time favorite on-line stores, Ruche. They carry such beautiful feminine vintage-inspired pieces and always put together the most inspiring lookbooks. Today I chose some of my favorite fall pieces to share with you, I hope you love them as much as I do :).

1-Wednesday's Love List - Ruche Fall Favorites 5

1. As you probably already know by now, I am such a sucker for anything plaid. This plaid jacket would be such a great layering piece.

2. I love the idea of something a little unexpected, like wearing pastels in the fall. I absolutely love this peach dress that gives the illusion of being two pieces. I’m dying over that collar and the back pleat detail!

3. Fall florals are so on trend right now and I’m jumping on the band wagon! I love the moodier feel of this darker floral dress that could easily take you from day to night.

4. Navy blue was everywhere over the summer and it looks like that trend is going to continue through the colder months, which I couldn’t be happier about. This skirt would definitely become a closet staple.

5. I’m obsessed with mustard and I’m obsessed with hats, so put the two together and the perfect fall accessory has been created :). This hat would add the perfect touch to so many outfits.

6. I’ve been on the lookout for a new fall purse and I think this might be the one. I’m loving this satchel with it’s super cute mustard colored tassel!

I hope these pieces provided you with little fall wardrobe inspiration for the rest of your week! :)

Truly,

Tamara

Falling for Gingham

1-Gingham Dress #1

1-Moccasins

Hey everyone, I’m back! After a really bad storm hit last week we were out of power for a few days and it really threw my whole week off. So I decided to take the week and hit the re-set button to get my life together and work on a few other projects I have going on. I will be sharing more about that on Friday ;).

With temperatures being in the 60s during the day and falling into the 40s at night, this weekend in Michigan definitely felt like fall. It was the first time I really wanted to style an outfit that felt distinctly fall and this gingham dress from Old Navy was exactly what I was looking for. I featured this dress in the last Wednesday’s Love List and I received it in the mail shortly after. I was worried that it may not fit me, because drop waist dresses don’t always work for my body type, but I was in luck this time. It is so soft and comfortable and fits really well. Now I can truly say that I love it! ;). I can’t wait to style it with tights, boots and maybe even a blazer. With it’s classic gingham print, this is a dress that I know I will get a lot of wear out of for years to come. This time I paired it with a fedora I bought from Target last year and my Minnetonka moccasins, which always feel very fall to me. I love hats, but ever since I cut my hair really short I have felt like I can’t wear them. Every time I would put one on I felt like a boy, because you really couldn’t even see my hair. Now that my hair has grown out a little I feel like I can wear them again, so I think I will be keeping my hair a little on the longer side for a while.

This past weekend was crazy busy filled with yard work, photography sessions, shopping and a baby shower. I’m not gonna lie, it was all I could do to get this blog post up today and I think I see a nap in my near future ;). How about you, did you have a good weekend? I’d love to hear about it!

Truly,

Tamara

Wednesday’s Love List 8-27-14

By the looks of this weeks Wednesday’s Love list I’m starting to accept the fact that fall is coming. I find myself more and more drawn to pieces that will help me transition into the colder months. Maybe it’s the return of the pumpkin spice latte that has helped to ease the pain of summer coming to a close ;).

1-Wednesday's Love List 8-27-14 #2

1. I love this quilted top and skirt from Target. Pair them with tights and oxfords for a cute preppy look.

2. This is such a pretty boho dress from Avenle. Just add a cardigan and some ankle boots to make it more fall appropriate.

3. Are you shocked that I’m in love with this blouse from Forever 21? Of course not, it has a Peter Pan collar! ;)

4. I absolutely adore this felt hat from Old Navy. It also comes in a pretty wine color.

This blouse and hat would pair perfectly together with jeans for a more casual look or dressed up with a skirt.

5. These slim jogger pants from target would be perfect for running errands, while still looking cute.

6. I’m really loving all of Old Navy’s graphic tees lately. They are super versatile and would look equally as cute with the above jogger pants or with a blazer and a skirt for a more polished look.

I have been looking for more casual, but still stylish pieces for days when I don’t feel like dressing up. These two pieces fit the bill perfectly. I would just throw on a pair of Converse sneakers and be ready to go grocery shopping :).

I hope you are all having a lovely week so far.

Truly,

Tamara
