Fashion Friday: Favorite Fall Outfits for All Occasions

For todays post I partnered again with Nordstrom, my favorite place for one-stop-shopping, to bring you some fun fall outfits that are sure to inspire you for just about any occasion this season.

Perfect for a football game (watching, attending) or really anything casual. Nothing beats the security of a giant scarf and the comfort of pretty suede loafers.

Leather pants you will wear ALL. THE. TIME. (trust) and a comfy but sexy off the shoulder sweater make for the perfect date night/ night out with the girls outfit.  Ain’t nobody got time to be freezing their buns off in halter tops during the colder months!  Also, I’ve been trying to justify these heels for months- they look insane with denim AND fancier outfits…. help.

Fashion Friday: Henry’s Fall Wardrobe (and some finds for the little ladies too!)

I love dressing my little monkey for fall (can you believe he’s going to be TWO in a month??) It’s so much fun to get to pick out these miniature man outfits everyday while he will still let me.  He really has no opinion yet on clothing beyond always wanting to wear a baseball hat.  I think we were so obsessed with him having one on as a baby that now he thinks it’s a requirement to leave the house.  The other day (when this picture was taken) I asked him if he wanted to go meet Daddy at the train and he looked at me with big eyes all excited and screamed “HAAAAAAT! HAAAAAAT!” while patting his head and running around.  Too cute.

Anyways, here are some of the items I’ve either bought or am planning to buy for Henry for fall. I’m obsessed with the Patagonia vest I just bought at Nordstrom (which he’s wearing above with this Joules tee and Target jeans).  I may need to buy the jacket version too.  And I clearly have a stripe and Red and blue addiction. :)

And while I don’t have a girl to shop for, doesn’t mean I don’t DIE over the “mini me” options out there. I mean, can I have this wardrobe (complete with gold Chucks?)

Fashion Friday: The Dress You Guys Asked About

I’m home sick today, but did not want to leave y’all hanging on a Friday! Last week I had the honor of being one of this year’s recipients of New England Home Magazine’s 5 Under 40 Awards for Interior Design.  I shared some pics on Instagram, and lots of you asked about my outfit.  I chose this grey dress by Badgley Mischka that felt elegant but not TOO formal.  I also loved the high neckline and the fact that it had sleeves (not a big fan of my arms). It’s a great silhouette, and I got lots of compliments.

Here’s a roundup of what I wore (yup, including a Spanx bodysuit!)

dress // shoes // earrings (I wore some old ones, but these were another option) // Spanx

This dress comes in black, blue and white and is perfect for anything from a cocktail party to a work event to a wedding.  And speaking of weddings, it also comes in a long option that I think would be an amazing casual wedding dress!
