Fall Street Style Inspiration

Come on fall! I am ready for a new season to start. I am over shorts, flip flops, mosquitos and humidity.

Here are some fall style looks I have pinned lately....

I love the simplicity of this look. A black sweat shirt and distressed denim can easily go bag lady or chic lady. She makes it chic with a clutch and cool glasses

I just scored a pair of black jeans at the Gap for $10! I used to hate black jeans but now I think they are kinda cool. We all grow up at some point. Can't go wrong with a gray sweater and leopard. It's all about the accessories

It is still hot in Texas until at least October so you technically still could wear shorts for a while. I like these paired with rain boots and a jacket.

Sale Alert and Blog Update

I have been thinking a lot about my blog lately and the lack of posting. I just needed a little break to adjust to being a mother of two and starting a part time interior design business. I love having a blog and can't imagine not keeping up with it anymore. I think part of the problem was my blog was about anything and everything (fashion, beauty, interior design, my life). That just gave me too much to think about and became overwhelming to think about what to post. So what do I do when I get overwhelmed? Nothing. So here is where the blog comes in. I am stripping it all down and simplifying. Going back to my first love: fashion. What I pride myself in is finding great deals. So not only am I going to find you great finds but help you get a good deal too. I am going to post them mostly hear but I really love Instagram too! Find me at ilovethatblog or click on the link right over there >>>>>

To make it even easier to shop from instagram, you can register at and my finds will be sent directly to your inbox.

So speaking of first loves, the Gap is mine. I know it has its ups and downs but I have been shopping there since I fit into Gap Kids, that was a long time ago! So right now they are having 30% off reg. price items and 40% off for card members (including Old Navy or Banana Republic cards). Use code; AUGUST :: sale ends 8/24.  Great time to stalk up on clothes for you, your man or kids. I have two boys and a husband and they wear so much Gap that I should be on the board.

:: by now you should have at least one pair of booties, gray is a good neutral pair to have

:: I am totally into button down shirts. Flannels and checks are very fall and a throwback to the 90's..eek!

:: Love this moto jacket. Wear a jacket like you would a sweater, throw over a graphic tee

:: Buffalo plaid is my fave

:: This dress could be really good or really bad. Style it with booties,  a long necklace, and some wayfarer sunglasses and it becomes a little edgy.

:: A denim skirt is so easy and versatile.

Crossing the Border and Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

This past weekend we were able to go on a trip with my husbands job to Quebec City in Canada. It was so beautiful and historical. It felt like we were in Europe (not that I would know since I have never been). Everyone spoke French!

 These Kate Spade Saturday tassle earrings made this black dress 

This white dress has a long story to go with it that I wills save for another time but for $40 it was perfect. I found the clutch at World Market for $19.99

This Madewell Tomboy Workshirt was perfect for the weather. I will be wearing this all Fall and Winter. And its on sale!

 I loved wearing this white dress and cargo jacket together. We all need a white dress in our closet
Find it here and the shoes are perfection

I am so happy I got this JCrew Schoolboy blazer. It was on super sale! The necklace is JCrew too 

Ok now for the important stuff: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It became open to the public while I was out of town! What?!?! But I rounded up some of my favorites. This sale is perfect if you are in need of new boots, jeans or a new bag for Fall. There are also some serious splurge worthy moments too

My Style Lately

I feel like the older I get the more I know what my style is, both fashion wise and decorating wise. Let's focus on fashion today. Celebrity style that I try and mirror would be Olivia Palermo, Rachel Zoe, Gwyneth Paltrov. Of course I don't try to dress like them everyday nor do I have the funds to style myself to anything close to what they look like but I do try to ask myself every now and then "would Olivia wear this?" I am trying to look more classic with pops of trends but not overly trendy. I don't think dripping in labels is necessarily stylish. And of course I am on my constant quest to invest in better quality but that is very hard for me.  The book Parisian Chic really helped me learn more about my style. I wrote about it here. French women are just inherently stylish. It's a great style book.

Button down shirts are my new thing. Wear them with cutoffs, jeans, blazers, sweaters and anything else you can think of. Pair them with cool sunglasses to give your look a little more edge.

Oh hello, Kate Moss! How could I forget about her. Super style icon. Blazer and leather pants with flats. Done and done.

Stripes and leopard are good. And you can mix it all together with floral. Don't be afraid to mix patterns

A good white tee is a closet staple. I love patterned shorts this summer. I bought some from TJ Mazxx for $9.99 and have worn them out!

Some Favorites

A little for you, a little for him and a little for baby. I love those Nike shoes for the hubs and the little gingham onsie from JCrew is not only adorable but would be a precious keepsake. The rest is just obvious.
