5 Key Pieces for Fall & TFF Link-up!

Happy Thursday, friends!  Just one more day until the long weekend.  Did I take you by surprise with this unprecedented Thursday post?  Well, it’s a special day because I am co-hosting this week’s Thursday Fashion File Link-up with Jill from Doused in Pink and Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom. How exciting!

OOTD Look 1 Using 3 of 5 Key Pieces for Fall

In honor of the Thursday Fashion File theme, I thought I’d post a couple fall OOTD shots highlighting a few recent finds from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  My wardrobe was due for some serious updates and I felt lucky to find five key pieces for fall at this year’s sale.

Fall 2017 Trends: Dark Florals & Friendship Friday #9

Welcome to the second segment in our fall trend series!  Today’s featured trend is one of my favorites for this fall – dark florals!  I love the femininity of florals but am not really a brights or pastels kind of girl so this trend is right up my alley.

One of the first pieces I fell in love with was this retro inspired print by Kate Spade.  I love the flattering fit and flare cut of the dress as well as the girly yet urban feel of the print.
