This past weekend I took the girls on a mommy/daughter date and we had the best time. I told them we could eat anywhere they wanted and their favorite restaurant is Panera Bread (ha!) so of course they wanted to go there. Now that Brielle is in first grade she always has stories from school about friends and we always have so much fun chatting and laughing together. For some reason she has seemed SO much older just in the last few weeks. Which makes me sad and happy all at the same time. Watching your kids grow up is hard (because sometimes I secretly wish they could stay babies forever) but it also makes me SO proud to see them grow and change and become more independent. After we ate we went to the pet store because both Brynleigh and Brielle LOVE to play with the puppies, we were there for a good hour and the girls were in Heaven. Nothing makes me happier in this world than hearing them laugh and spending quality time with them!
Anyways, I wanted to share this casual outfit I wore last week with y’all because it’s so easy to throw together but still looks so chic and comfy for Fall. When I’m thinking of building my Fall wardrobe for the season, a large chunky cardigan is always a must. I usually buy two or three at the beginning of the season and throw them on over everything from casual dresses and booties to workout tanks, leggings, and sneaks. This neutral cardigan I found during a quick trip to Nordstrom could not be more perfect! It is the coziest thing EVER and it’s so versatile. It is a little pricier but so so worth it in my opinion! I always check out Nordstrom first for the best selection of Fall staples like cardigans, jackets, and booties and I’m never disappointed. I paired it with this cute and affordable burn out tee (I’m wearing a small) and a pair of simple skinny jeans. These jeans are so flattering and soft and I love that they aren’t TOO distressed. I’m wearing a size 26 for reference. As for my shoes, you guys already know I’m booty obsessed! I bought this pair of cut-out booties last year and I have worn the heck out of them! They are one of my favorite pairs of booties I own and they are SO comfortable. Thanks for stopping by, Babes! XO
