Hi everyone! Happy October! Today's ensemble is the perfect Fall outfit for me. I've been wanting an olive vest for quite some time now but have never been able to find the right one. I didn't want too many pockets or details. I was looking for something simple and classic. I considered this one from Anthropologie and this one from Tilly's but my size was sold out. This junior's version from Nordstrom was an option too but none of them fit the bill. Finally after scouring the internet and numerous stores, I found this gem. It's exactly what I was looking for and it fits! The quality is really nice and I love the simplicity of it. You'd be surprised with how many things it goes with. I've worn it recently with a crochet skirt and it also looks great over a long sleeve striped dress. I would definitely recommend it. Thanks for reading and have a great day! :)

Happy Sunday everyone! I posted this Forever 21 skirt on Instagram over 3 weeks ago and it literally sold out almost immediately in the burgundy color. I know a lot of you ladies expressed frustration via email about missing out so I would highly recommend following me on Instagram or shopping my feed via I usually post things on there before it hits the blog and a lot of times, things sell out very quickly. This skirt is another great find at F21 and I'm shocked at how nice it is! The XS fits someone my size with a waist of 23-24". The only thing I had to do was hem the length approximately 4". If you're taller, you can wear it as a midi instead of knee length. The only thing it's missing are pockets but other than that, it's amazing! You really can't beat a well made skirt for under $20. I loved it so much that I got it in the blush color (more of a peach) too. I would also recommend the heather gray color (comes in black too) - it's a different version than mine but looks pretty similar. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the weekend!
