Anytime I need to cool it on shopping for a little while, I like to shop my own closet and restyle items I already have! When I purchase anything at all I try to think of at least 3 different ways I can style a piece, and with some items there are way more than 3 ideas. Since off-the-shoulder stuff has been in for awhile and doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, I consider them a wardrobe staple, especially in black or white! These are all pieces I've had for 2-6 months but just styled together for the first time.

Also, I talked about my lip color on my Instagram story Saturday, but wanted to share in today's blog post as well! It's only $6 and is the perfect deep berry shade for fall. I also really like the texture! It's more moisturizing than a true matte lip cream, but still stayed in place for hours.

I threw on this outfit this past weekend to run errands (you may have seen it in this pic on my Instagram), and I liked it so much I recreated it for blog photos! I love the laid back feel of ripped jeans and sneakers - I could wear the combo every day.

I'm going to keep this short & sweet because it's late and I can barely keep my eyes open ;) But I hope you're having a great week!!

Fall Sweaters Under $50

Now that the weather is cooling off and the leaves are turning color, I've realized I am seriously lacking in my sweater inventory. Since we're saving up every dollar we can right now for furniture and our master bathroom project, I've been looking for cute and cozy sweaters that are really affordable! If you're in the same boat, I highly recommend H&M's sweaters (not sponsored - just my opinion!). I've always had really good luck there, and they have tons of cute oversized knits at the moment. I may or may not have 9 in my cart right now that I'm deciding between...

Most of the sweaters below are actually under $35, so shop away guilt free girlfriend :)

Kick Flare Jeans

I was worried that these jeans wouldn't be flattering on me (most "trendy" denim isn't), but I loooooove this pair. They're definitely slimming, and the raw, slightly flared hem is just the right amount of fashion forward. Along that same note, this lace top isn't something I would normally purchase, but after I saw it on my friend Brianna I had to have it. The color and the bell sleeves are divine! I tend to purchase more "practical" pieces that I can wear in my everyday life (work, football/basketball games, etc.), but it really is important to have some fun pieces mixed into your wardrobe for special occasions and such. Plus, with a price tag under $18 I didn't feel that guilty :)

Did you get to do anything fun over the weekend? I laid low for the most part and rested more, but I did finally get out of the house a couple of times. I'm back to work today and hoping to make it to yoga tonight! After traveling and being sick for so many weeks I sadly haven't worked out in almost a month and have lost all of my progress! So I'm ready to get back in the game this week.

I shot this post with my friend Brianna of Gingham & Glam last weekend and it's probably one of my favorites ever. I recently got these Levi's 721 jeans and I'm obsessed! They're included in the Shopbop sale (see all of my picks in this post) and you can get them for 25% or 30% off before the sale ends tonight! I went down a size and love the fit.

On Wednesday I found out I still had strep 10 days after originally finding out I had it, annnnd I found out I probably have mono too. So, I've basically been in bed for the past 3 days. It at least explains why I've been feeling so bad for 3 weeks now! So my weekend will be comprised of lots of R&R :) I hope you ladies are all doing well and have a great weekend!
