Fall Colors Outfit

Fall Outfit- mustard and burgundy

This weekend was a really great one! Friday and Saturday were spent inside with the hubby because we had some MAJOR storms. It’s sometimes nice to have an excuse to stay in and cuddle on the couch:) I had a little bit of cabin fever by the time Saturday night rolled around and decided to put up some Christmas decorations! I know, it’s not even thanksgiving yet, but I won’t have time to decorate next weekend or the one after so I decided it’s better to be early and enjoy it for longer! It looks awesome and now I am totally in the Christmas spirit! Sunday was sunny and 80 degrees so Wes and I walked over to the coffee shop in the morning, then yard work, outfit photos, and some yummy pulled pork sandwiches filled out the rest of the day. We got a lot done, but also had some relaxation time…perfect weekend:)Comfy scarf and sweater outfit Burgundy Skirt with mustard clutch Burgundy skirt with a fall hat Mustard tights with leopard pumps Mustard Monogrammed Clutch with burgundy skirt Fall outfit inspiration- Scarf and sweater Mustard and Burgundy Outfit Inspiration

I wore this outfit to work last week and I love theses colors, they remind me of the fall leaves. I was super lucky that this last week was when I noticed leaves starting to change and got to take some pictures with them! People complain about not having “fall” here in Texas, but it really just comes later than it does everywhere else. Our front yard is covered in yellow leaves and the trees in our neighborhood are turning left and right.

I have gotten so much use out of this skirt since I bought it! It’s so comfortable and I love finding new and fun ways to style it! I’ve featured it here and here already, and I have so many more ideas left! At first I was unsure about the baggy sweater with the higher waist of the skirt, but I don’t think it makes me as shapeless as I thought it might. Overall, I love the outfit and I’m pretty in love with these photos with the fall leaved in the back too!

Tights Are My Winter Savior

What to wear to work- Black lace midi dress with black blazerYou guys…I am ALL about the dresses. Pants are probably my least favorite clothing item and I hate them. Dresses and skirts are the most comfortable items in a girl’s closet, in my opinion, and I am not about to say goodbye to them just because it’s getting colder outside. Oh no. Tights. Tights are where it is at! I have pretty much every color tights you can imagine in my closet and I wear them ALL THE TIME during the winter. Layered with some cute boot cuffs and boots is my favorite way….or you can go simple like my outfit today!

Shop Lace Dresses:
I got these tights from Kushyfoot, and they are awesome. First, I love that they don’t go all the way up my torso to my bra. Those “control top” ones just make me claustrophobic. Second, they don’t cut in to your sides. No one likes that weird line where your tights cut into your side skin and make you look like you have an awkward roll. Now, maybe I just never have bought the right kind before now….but these tights don’t do that, it’s awesome!
I love that because of tights, I am going to be able to wear this dress through any weather. It’s got to be one of my all time favorite dresses and I don’t wear it nearly as often as I should. When there isn’t a blazer covering me from the winds you can see the shape of it a little better and it almost reminds me of a 50′s housewife dress. It curves in all the right places and really shows off your shape:) Love. I did get these tights for free from Kushyfoot, but I can honestly say that I would buy them regardless. They are comfortable and they are well priced. You can get a three pack for $20.97, and let’s be honest…I am not the most delicate little flower ever and ruin tights at least once per season. Ruin one? Have two more left…ha!All That Glitters Blog Signature
**I received the tights mentioned above for free from Kushyfoot. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.**

Keeping Up With The Joneses

White Sweater with leggings- casual cozy outfit

Last night, I met up with the beautiful Lee Ann from Life in ATX to have some coffee and chat. First of all, what a sweet heart she is! :) We were chatting about all things blogging, obviously, and one topic came up that I have been thinking a lot about lately- how to keep up with the blogging world. Everywhere you look in the blogging community you see $700 handbags, $300 flats, and everything is designer. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love my Kate Spade planner and I do have a few (really tiny) designer bags (MK, Kate Spade, and Rebecca Minkoff), but these were purchased either on sale or at Nordstrom Rack. There is a point where I have to draw the line. I feel like a big thing that comes along with blogging is figuring out how NOT to give in to the pressure to buy anything and everything! I take pride in the fact that most of my outfits come from affordable and highly available retailers. I want to show my readers how to style items that they have in their closet or can at least afford to buy! It’s nice to look at that $500 dress with those $1000 heels, but it’s just not realistic to me. Even with all the money in the world I don’t think I could justify those kind of purchases. I would rather have 10 $50 dresses than 1 $500 dress, I like a little variety.

The  handbag in this outfit is probably my biggest splurge ever, I used two $50 gift cards I won at work and paid $48 for. I had anxiety even buying that, lol.  That being said, if you see anything designer on here, it was debated upon in my head for over a month and it’s GOT to be good! ;-) I just have to keep telling myself that I would rather have money saved for the days when we decide to start a family than have those Tory Burch flats. (I think…haha!) Stay strong budgeting ladies, you’re not alone!

Thanksgiving Wear 2014

Casual Thanksgiving Wear

Thanksgiving is just over a week away and I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait for mashed potatoes and gravy! I like the turkey and all, but I am more of a side dish girl. Give me green bean casserole, stuffing, and mashed potatoes with gravy and I’m set for life:) Well, obviously I have been thinking about my Thanksgiving day outfit for weeks now and today I’m showing you my ideas! One for the casual Thanksgiving setting, like mine…and one for if you are getting a little more dressed up for the big day! I am in LOVE with the scarf and cardigan in that first outfit…and those shoes! I need some oxfords! The glittery top in the second outfit is something I may need to invest in as well. It could be used for all sorts of holidays:) Enjoy!Dressy Thanksgiving Wear
