Pure Joy

Happy Monday and Happy Halloween! I hope you all had a fun weekend! We spent our Friday night at church enjoying good food, fellowship, and a movie on the lawn. Saturday, we celebrated a birthday, shopped at Target, took a walk at the arboretum, and ate at my husband's favorite burger bar. On Sunday, we did our usual church and lunch routine then met up with friends to go to a trunk or treat at Olivia's preschool church. It was a busy but great weekend!

Today, I am sharing another pretty piece from Pure Hearts Boutique! I shared a gorgeous tunic top last week and shared more about this awesome boutique that gives back to non-profit organizations. You can read more about that here. This week, I am styling this perfect neutral cardigan that can be worn all year long! Fall in North Carolina is typically pretty mild so layers are definitely the way to go around here to avoid freezing in the morning or having a heat stroke by early afternoon.

I styled my Pure Joy cardigan with a simple gray top, denim skirt, choker necklace, bucket bag, and my over the knee boots. I felt very boho chic in this outfit! The cardigan is a great neutral color that can be worn with pretty much anything. I plan to wear it over a swing dress and it would also work perfectly with jeans and an oversized scarf.

Have a great day, y'all!

Legging Love

Happy Friday, y'all! I hope you have all had an amazing week! I am looking forward to a weekend full of fall fun, celebration, and Halloween festivities! I actually opted not to buy my daughters Halloween costumes this year because we have a playroom overflowing with dress up gear. They had a blast coming up with several costumes each using what we already had on hand... and I saved at least 50 bucks. Definitely a win win.

Today, I am sharing the softest pair of leggings I have ever tried on AND they are less than $10! Does it get any better than that?! My leggings are from Simple Addiction and they come in tons of  gorgeous colors and pretty patterns. I also have a black pair that I have already worn twice! They are so comfortable and have the perfect mid-rise (which is totally mom friendly)!

To keep the theme of comfort going, I styled the leggings with a cozy cowl neck tunic, leather earrings, berry bag, and my white Converses. An easy, on-the-go look that is perfect for a trip to the zoo or the grocery store. These are my very first patterned leggings and I know I'l be back for more!

Have a great weekend!

Currently Loving

Hey there! It's time for my weekly list of eight items that I am currently loving. These pieces can be mixed and matched for many cute fall looks! Which item is your favorite?!



1. Gray Swing Dress | A versatile gray swing dress is great closet staple. It can be worn with a cardigan and scarf for a cozy fall look. Swing dresses are my favorite type of dress all year long!

2. Rose Gold Drusy | I am loving this drusy from the Kendra Scott winter collection. The rose gold is too pretty! I love layering up dainty necklaces like this one.

3. Leopard Boyfriend Cardigan | This cardigan is less than $20! How cute is the leopard print?! I can't add this to my shopping cart fast enough.

4. Buffalo Plaid Scarf | I saw this scarf in store last week and it's so soft! It's not too bulky which I love! 

5. Over the Knee Boots | I am loving over the knee boots right now! I own a pair of cognac colored ones but I have my eye on this black pair. 

6. Striped Tunic | This tunic is another closet staple. You can never have too many striped shirts in our closet! This one is leggings friendly, too.

7. Calf Hair Clutch | I am currently loving all things leopard this season. Every year when fall rolls around, I want all of the leopard things. 

8. Cowl Neck Tunic | I own this tunic in gray and I absolutely love it! I actually bought mine last year but they brought it back this year in more colors. It is a must-have!

Instagram Roundup

Happy Wednesday! ICYMI (in case you missed it), I shared two of my favorite small businesses already this week. Pure Hearts Boutique, an affordable shop that gives back to non-profit organizations! They are also offering my followers 20% off of your purchase with the code STYLEANDGRACE so definitely take advantage of that great deal. I also shared a look featuring Gray Monroe, another affordable boutique featuring high quality and high style items! I am loving everything at Gray Monroe right now!

Today, I am sharing my weekly Instagram Roundup of my everyday outfits that I wore and posted on Instagram last week. I was either all dressed up or in fakeout clothes (I never actually made it inside of them gym) last week. I am kind of loving the athleisure look right now though thanks to my new Nikes! They are incredibly comfortable and perfect for everyday life (plus working out, of course).

I hope you are all having an amazing week!

Pretty in Peplum

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start! Today is all about peplum and it's currently one of my favorite styles. I often have a hard time finding a peplum top that is flattering on me and not too short. Well, the hunt is over! I am absolutely loving this pretty peplum from Gray Monroe and everything else from the shop! Gray Monroe is owned and operated by a fellow mom who is following her dreams. She adds new items and restocks often so if you don't see what you're looking for today, check back tomorrow. You'll always find something to love!

I styled this Sybil Top in black with dark denim flares, open toe ankle boots, an over sized leopard scarf, black bag, and gold jewels. This outfit came together almost by accident because my favorite jeans that I wanted to wear with this top were in the laundry so I had to change up my original outfit plan. Outfits that happen by accident are usually some of my very favorite ones. I love how the peplum top and flared leg look together. I felt so put together and chic in this look! I also plan to style this gorgeous Gray Monroe top with skinny jeans and riding boots this season plus a statement necklace. They options are endless because a black top is so classic and definitely a closet must have.

How would you style this top?

Party in the Back

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was an adventure for sure. My husband and I decided to take our girls to the NC State Fair for the first time this weekend and it was an interesting experience and not really one that I want to repeat anytime soon! Finding a parking spot took over an hour, it was incredibly crowded... way too crowded, and so overpriced. Oh well, we cut our visit short and made the best of it by trying out a new restaurant instead. On Sunday, we did have have a blast at the Boo at the Zoo with family. I hope you all had a fun fall weekend, too!

Today, I am sharing this gorgeous top from Pure Hearts Boutique! It's all business in the front and definitely a party in the back! I love the olive green tunic style that makes it look so classic in the front and the surprise details on the back! This tunic is also incredibly soft and warm, making it the perfect fall top. I paired it with skinny jeans and ankle books but it's also leggings friendly, which I love!

You can save 20% off of your purchase at Pure Hearts Boutique with my code STYLEANDGRACE. When you shop at this boutique, you are also supporting a good cause! Each month, they choose a non-profit spotlight and a percentage of their sales go to the cause.

Boyfriend Plaid

Happy FRIYAY, friends! I hope you have all had a great week! I am getting my hair done this weekend, going to the state fair with my family, and squeezing in a zoo trip with the in-laws. We definitely have a busy but fun weekend coming up but I'm excited for some pampering and fun!

Today's outfit is one that I actually ended up wearing to church last Sunday. I got all dressed in a cute floral with a pink cardigan that you saw in Wednesday's post but then I remembered I was serving in the baby nursery. Short dresses are a no-go when you are on the floor keeping babies content! So I switched it up into a more baby-friendly look in skinny jeans and a boyfriend plaid shirt. 

My shirt is from last year but they have a super similar one in the same fit this year and it's such a good price! I love a loose fitting boyfriend shirt (I'm wearing a size small for reference) with skinny jeans this time of year! The shirt is comfortable but the jeans are form fitting to keep the look feminine. The outfit itself is super neutral so I added a pop of color with my favorite green bucket bag that you'll be seeing so much this season. 

So after the wardrobe change, we ended up having zero babies in the nursery, lol. Oh well! At least I ended up with a cute ouftit. Have a great weekend, y'all!
