Seen as it is supposed to be FALL but we are getting 90-100 degree weather this week I am going to live vicariously through those of you living in cooler parts of the country & world and share some cozy sweater fav's that are under $50 and $100 . . .

Factory Prices!

October 5, 2015

I ordered some pretty Fall casual pieces for the girls from the J. Crew Factory website (here) the other day  . . . the prices are great and I got an additional 40% off the clearance items!  I can't wait to get these comfy pieces and add to their Fall closets.  

If you haven't shopped the website  before it is worth your while to sign-up with your email address to get emails of their sales because it is always 40-50% off the clearance stuff or 30-40% off their new arrivals (which are already lower than the regular J.Crew store prices)

Ordered these lovely navy "thistle" leggings for the girls 
And ordered both these two sweatshirts for them too!!! love the wiener dogs!!! 

take a look at some of these Fall pieces that I have my eye on . . .

Happy Monday peeps!

Fall closet update

September 17, 2015

While it is not Fall weather per say here in SoCal . . . we are supposed to get a very wet winter this year due to El Nino so I am keeping my fingers crossed and have bought a few items to update my Fall closet . . .

I love denim shirts and this one is no exception; looks great paired with black jeans or leather leggings and is nice and soft
I'm not generally a hat person BUT I decided to try this one out becasue I have seen it on a few other bloggers and love the look!  I will report back once I get it

And these joggers were a must . . . they look so comfy and perfect to cozy up in front of the fire place with!
Lastly, I have heard nothing but good things about the Loft utility blouses (think Equipment but without the price tag) so when I saw this print I had to have it for my Fall closet and I clicked BUY immediately . . . didn't hurt that it was 40% off too

Few of my favorite things . . .

September 16, 2015

Since meeting my husband 11 years ago Fall has become one of my absolute favorite times of year.  I love having football on the TV, a fire going in the fireplace, candles lit all over the house and the smell of cinnamon and vanilla in the house.  It is so warm and cozy and makes me so happy.  Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite fall items . . .

These mulling spices (here)

This amazing candle here

and I always get cinnamon pine-cones (here or at the grocery store) . . .

There is nothing like a nice pair of Ugg slippers either (here) . . . love these ones because they have an actual rubber sole so you can wear outside!

And the best blanket to snuggle up with?!!! A Barefoot Dreams fuzzy lovely (here and here)

Fall boots - Kiddos

September 15, 2015

I have a weakness for shoes (now kiddie shoes) . . . I have an especially hard time with BOOTS!!! I love boots, always have always will! I may have bought a few pairs for the girls since we are supposed to have a crazy wet El Nino winter this year! They need them right?

These are from Target . . .

These are from Amazon (here)

My F21 Fall Preview

September 4, 2015

I popped into Forever 21 today on my lunch break and although it is still really hot here in SoCal I decided to buy a few Fall items becasue if I wait until it is already cooler everything I liked will be gone!  Here are a few items I picked up . . .

This is the softest, worn-in, vintage-like sweater ever . . . perfect for the cooler nights at soccer practice (here)

 I just want to curl up in this sweater - so cozy and warm (here)

Love the boxy feel of this sweater and the wide arms - doesn't hurt that its 
wonderfully soft too! (here)  

I have wanted some mid/high-waisted flare jeans for a while now and these fit me perfectly!!! Very soft denim and lightweight (good for Cali winters) (here)

I cant wait for cooler temperatures!!!
