My Go To Look For Most Occasions

Fall is officially here! Today I'm sharing a classic look that is my go to for date nights or any "dressy casual" occasion. I got this top for Christmas last year. The blazer, jeans, and shoes have been in my closet for a few years now and know that they will remain there for years to come, since they were investment pieces for me. I absolutely love them. 

First of all, this might be my favorite top that I've ever owned. It's simple, but the drapey cut and cut outs on the shoulders make it unique. I don't think the red is available anymore, but they have black, blush, and lavender. I have never been one to buy the same top in multiple colors, but I just may make an exception here because I love this top so much!  

The temps are finally getting cool enough for jeans and blazers. Ever since I started interviewing for teaching positions, Brian has been vouching for me to get some nice blazers. This Regent blazer from J Crew has always caught my eye. I love dressing it up professionally, but also just wearing it with jeans. It's pricey, but you can be strategic about buying it on sale. We bought it at 50% off around the holidays when I was pregnant with Jade, so if you love it, keep your eyes out for a good sale! 

I got lucky and scored these Valentino sandals at Nordstrom Rack a few years ago. I don't think this version is available anymore, but there are many similar options. You can never go wrong with a black strappy sandal. 

I am loving the cooler temps and am welcoming fall with open arms! A few weeks ago we had ONE cool day and I made cornbread and chili for dinner and had Jade paint some little white pumpkins. Then it got hotter than it had been all summer and lasted for a few weeks! This weekend it finally cooled down and I think we are done with the 80s and 90s for awhile. This week I am wanting to do some baking with pumpkin flavors. Maybe pumpkin bread or pumpkin scones?! I've never made scones before, but have always wanted to try!
