Currently Loving

what to buy for fall, north carolina blogger, style on a budget, mom style

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a wonderful week! Mine has been great but so incredibly busy. I cannot wait for some relaxation and downtime this weekend. It is much needed and much deserved! Today, I'm rounding up eight items that I am currently loving (and are sitting in my shopping cart). 

1. Bow Slides | How cute are these shoes?! I am loving slide on shoes right now and this pair is amazing. Pink is my love language and they are under $25!


2. Sweater | I am stocking up on sweater for cooler weather and I am loving this one. I love this neutral color but it also comes in pink (which is super tempting)!


3. Tote | I just ordered this bag and I can't wait to get it! I have been on the hunt for a classic black tote that wasn't crazy expensive and I think this one is it. Also, the inside is leopard!


4. Striped Tee | Y'all need this tee! But really, who doesn't need a great black and white striped tee?! It's leggings friendly and fits oversized. Such a great basic piece to layer with this fall and winter!


5. Ankle Boots | I have had the hardest time choosing a pair of ankle boots for the season. There's so many great options and this pair is at the top of my list. I love that they can just be slipped on!


6. Leopard Cardigan | Like I mentioned in Monday's post, once fall rolls around, I can't get enough animal print! This cardigan looks so cozy and will definitely be a must have! I love it!


7. Earrings | I love these earrings because they make a statement but they are still dainty. I love to make a statement with pieces that aren't overpowering.


8. Skirt | I'm loving faux suede for fall! This skirt is a great piece to add a little sass to your fall wardrobe. I plan to style mine with a cozy cream sweater and leopard flats!


Which of my picks is your favorite this week?!

Chenille Cardigan and the Best Boyfriend Jeans

blush pink chenille cardigan, the best boyfriend jeans, style on a budget, north carolina blogger

Hey y'all! Yesterday, literally every single hour of my day was completed planned out and packed. I felt like I could barely catch my breath before I needed to head to my next errand, task, appointment, etc. By 6pm, I just wanted to lay in the pile of warm laundry (that I restarted three times in the past two days) and eat bread. No motivation! I am hoping to squeeze in a little relaxation today but my planner isn't looking like it's going to allow it. Bring on the weekend!

Today, I am sharing the softest clothing item that I have ever worn and a pair of boyfriend jeans that are actually flattering! This cardigan is the prettiest shade of blush pink and seriously cozy. I plan to wear it all fall and winter long! I also recently bought the cutest black dress to wear with it and I'll be sharing how I'm styling that dress next week. I sized up one size in the cardigan because I like a more oversized fit, especially when it comes to sweaters because I love to layer when it's cool outside.


I paired the cardigan with a sassy black tank, leather slides, an animal print bag, and the very best boyfriend jeans! I am a big fan of Old Navy jeans in general because the price is super affordable and the fit is great. Like I mentioned above, this pair of boyfriend jeans is actually flattering. A lot of boyfriend style pants fit too loose and the rise is all wrong. But these are perfect. They have a mom friendly mid rise, tasteful distressing, and they hold their shape all day long! I found them to fit true to size and y'all, they are under $40!


So sorry in advance for how much you will be seeing these two pieces incorporated into my fall and winter wardrobe.

Instagram Roundup

how to dress for fall, style on a budget, north carolina blogger, mom style
Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a great week! This is my last week "off" before I go back to work next week. For those of you who don't know, I'm a STEM teacher at an afterschool enrichment program called The Dream Center. I'm looking forward to getting back into my work routine and I'm so thankful for a job that I look forward to going to. 

This past weekend, I did a big closet clean out and I am selling lots of gently used (or practically new) clothing and accessories over on my Instagram closet account. I'm planning to start using this page more regularly and I hope you'll follow along there! I will also be hosting another shopping party at my house within the next few weeks so I hope some of my local girls can come out for that!

Today, I'm rounding up my Instagram posts from the past week. I am loving the creativity that this season brings as far as getting dressed goes. I'm all about fall colors and layers but our North Carolina temperatures aren't allowing for true fall fashion. I have been tying my plaid around my waist instead of wearing it as a shirt and adding a lightweight sweater over a tank to achieve layers.

DIFF Charitable Eyewear

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! Sunglasses are absolutely essential for me! I never leave the house without them and if I forget my sunglasses, I always turn around and go back home for them. I even wear them on cloudy days because my eyes are so sensitive to sunlight. Plus, you can cover up tired momma eyes with them! I love sunglasses!

Today, I'm so excited to share an eyewear company that makes a difference, one pair of glasses at a time. DIFF donates a pair of reading glasses to a person in need for every pair of sunglasses they sell. They partner with several organizations to make this happen, including Eyes on Africa, Restoring Vision, and Svosh. They are also able to provide vision care to communities who don't have access to care. How amazing is that?! 

DIFF sent me this gorgeous pair of Ruby Black Frame Mirror Lens sunglasses to share their mission. These sunglasses are high quality, polarized, and adorable! I have actually never had a pair of polarized sunnies and they are going to be a game changer for my sensitive eyes. Such a great pair of sunglasses!

Animal Print Season

Hey y'all! First things first, a big congratulations to Kristie Langley for winning the Kendra Scott earrings giveaway from Friday's post! Thanks so much to everyone who entered the giveaway!

Once September rolls around, it's animal print season. Shoes, scarves, accessories, clothing... gimme all of the animal print! I love leopard especially because it's such a great neutral print. You can wear it with brown or black and it adds such a fun element to any outfit! I spotted (no pun intended) this gorgeous top at Marshalls this past Friday and I knew it had to come home with me! I loved the white background and the flattering yet loose fit (I bought this top in a medium).



I paired my animal print with complimentary neutrals including my favorite black crossbody and leather mules. I also picked up these Lucky Brand jeans on my trip to Marshalls and I am loving them! They are super stretchy yet hold their shape and they also fit true to size. I know I will be wearing both of these pieces so much this fall and winter! Yay for animal print season!

Thank you so much for visiting! Have a great day!
