Hello Friends, I’ve missed you. I took a break, an 18 day break that is…. AND I NEEDED it, I’ll be honest! Don’t get me wrong, I love social media and blogging! But my mind and body needed time to rest and recuperate. We all need breaks from time to time. The constant go, go, go can cause wear down on our bodies, on creativity and cause fuel burnout. And I was there, suffering from burnout – feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
Today, I’m back! Back from paradise and blogging that is! And honestly, I had no intentions of taking 18 days off, but you know “life happens!” (Giving myself a lil’ GRACE here) During my World Wide Web and social media time off, I’ve been able to refocus and gain a new perspective for TCE!!! With that said, I am so excited to be back and bring you all things fall and a couple special edition posts!
Fall in Texas is much like summer… HOT. Unlike other states, Texas does not have vast displays of fall color BUT our wardrobe can! We may not be wearing light sweaters and boots until November, but fall colors are no issue to us!
My favorite color pick, spicy mustard! A spicier, zestier yellow than previous seasons. It adds an exotic addition and a splash of uplifting vibrancy. So when I came across this OTS Floral beauty from Francesca’s it was without a doubt coming home with me! What’s not to love about it? OTS – CHECK! Floral – CHECK! Perfect for Fall – GAME OVER! While shopping the other day, I also stepped up my tassel game with these beauties! They are perfect! Find them in 2 other colors, too! And I’ve got great news, shop Francesca’s BOGO Mixer (clothing, jewelry and handbags) going on now where you can buy one item and get a second 50% off! That’s exactly how I snagged my top and earrings.
Not only am I falling for this top (see what I did there) but also for these designer jeans! Of course, I found them at the Nordstrom sale for under $100! The color, fit and fabric (supersoft) make them perfect! The new fiber technology makes them so comfortable and they will get you 8 plus hours without stretching out! How’s that for jeans?!?! I feel they run TTS, but if you are in-between sizes go ahead and size down. I love them so much, I’ve been eyeing this identical black pair too!
My monogram necklace is one I receive so many questions about! As mentioned here – the style and quality is unbeatable. I purchased the Nicole Monogram option but find other must have options here.
I hope you all are having a great week, we are half-way there! Check back soon for more fall inspiration and my vacation review.
