What. A. Week! This week has been one of those where you plan out every last second in order to try to squeeze everything in and luckily I squeezed these photos in riiiiight before a little afternoon rain storm dumped on Knoxville (that was really fun running back into work in).
This top was an instant favorite when My Kind of Lovely posted it on instagram that I ended up selling the one I had kept back for myself (thank goodness for re-orders!) I love the off the shoulder/open shoulder styles that are everywhere and the fringe just makes it so fun! I paired it with my new favorite fitted boyfriend jeans and my 9th & Elm iPad case turned clutch for a little pre fall outfit.
There’s not much I love more than an end of season sale! It’s like a challenge to all us budget fashionistas to see what end of season pieces we can easily transition into the upcoming season. I scooped up two Free People summer dresses for the price of one at Belk last week and they both will totally take me well into fall! This one is backless and more appropriate for a summer night out but with a vest or a denim jacket it totally makes it appropriate for almost anything. And I know I’ll be wearing it in the coming months layered with sweaters, jackets and booties. Who says summer dresses can only be worn in the summer? Not me!
It kind of feels like it’s always wedding season around these parts and being someone who’s always got a wedding, bridal shower or engagement party in their calendar it’s important to make the most of your outfits for these occasions! I always like to buy dresses that can double for something else and that are affordable so this cutie from Gap does just the trick! For less than $75 its great for a wedding or any other dressy occasion but can also be dressed down with a button down or even a tee shirt tied up on top of it.

I totally pulled the trigger on the rose gold birks. I figured if there was any sandal that would transition into fall it would be this one! They’re comfy, they’re easy, they go with everything and with all the running around I’ve been doing lately they’re the perfect break from my heels!
I’m always looking for ways to re-wear old pieces or even wear things in a different way than they were intended (remember when I wore a maxi skirt as a dress?) This “top” is really just a swim coverup! It’s super lightweight (and pretty see through) but with a tank underneath and flare jeans it’s transforms into a fun summery tunic that works perfectly for a cool summer day!
