The Ultimate Fall Fashion Checklist

Ultimate Fall Fashion Checklist

Hi friends! How have you been? I feel like fall is zooming by. Is it just me?! I recently celebrated my birthday and was able to sneak away for a little weekend at the beach. Will and I also have our 15-year and 10-year high school reunions this weekend (where has time gone!?).  And now that cool weather is finally setting in to D.C., the time is right to share my ultimate fall fashion checklist.

Fall is my favorite season. I love layering clothes and combining different patterns and cozy textures together as the crisp weather sets in. So, if you love to layer clothes or are looking for some inspiration for your fall wardrobe, this checklist is for you! The items on this list will leave you with endless outfit options for fall and transitioning into winter.

The Fall Fashion Checklist for Ultimate Style

Ultimate Must Haves Fall Fashion Checklist

Now that I have laid out my fall fashion checklist, I will share with you what I own, recommend and love that is on this list. There a few things I am eyeing, noted below too.

Long-Sleeve Striped Tee

Cotton Cardigan

Utility Vest

Riding Boots

Blanket Scarf

Skinny Blue Jeans

Long-Sleeved Lace Top

Flat Booties

Olive Pants

Infinity Scarf

Ruffled, Flowy Top

Crossbody Bag

Chunky Open Cardigan

Lace-up Top

Burgundy Pants

Quilted Jacket

Heeled Booties

While out and about over the weekend, I wore a few of my favorite fall fashion items from the checklist ! So far this season, I have been wearing my utility vest and flat booties the most. My favorite new purchase has been my AG burgundy jeans. They are so soft and stretchy. The high-waisted fit is perfect too. I could wear them all day because it feels like I have leggings on!

Ultimate Must Haves Fall Fashion Checklist

I wore this Levi’s utility vest over the weekend with my go-to skinny jeans and a new lace up top from Target’s A New Day line (p.s. it is currently on sale for $14!). This new line from Target is awesome, if you haven’ checked it out yet. My top in particular is thicker and softer than normal cotton. It is seriously cozy, perfect for lounging on a cold day.

Now, I need to know. Do you have similar go-to items in your closet for this fall? I would love to know if there is anything else you would add to my checklist too. Share with me what you are absolutely loving for fall this year!

Cheers,

Sarah Camille

14 Halloween Tops to Get You in the Spooky Spirit

Hi friends and happy Friday! How are you? This week has been a whirlwind for me, with my birthday and work taking priority, but do not fear! I am working on a couple exciting posts for next week and am doing a photo shoot tomorrow for an awesome opportunity. I can’t wait to share it and tell you all about it! Since today is Friday the 13th and Halloween is just 18 days away, I am sharing my favorite Halloween tops, as part of my “Friday Favorite” series I started a couple of weeks ago.

14 cute Halloween tops to get you in the Spooky Spirit!

If you are at all like me, then putting on a costume is not at the top of your list this year.  Occasionally, I get a costume and go all out, but the stars have to align for me to go forth with that plan. But forgoing a full costume doesn’t have to be lame! A fun, Halloween-themed top might be just the thing to get you in the spooky spirit. As you will see, most of the tees, tanks and sweatshirts below are less than $30. There are two items from Wildfox that are definitely splurge-worthy. If you haven’t heard, Wildfox has such good quality and super cute cozy tops!

Favorite Halloween Tops

 


How do you like my favorite tops? My favorite is definitely the one “I’m here for the Boos” tank from Target’s Fifth Sun line. It is super soft and I am a huge fan of puns. The $13 price isn’t bad either!

What do you plan on wearing for the Halloween season? Do you have  costumes you are excited to wear or a festive outfit planned? I would love to know if you have any Halloween activities planned too. Personally, my favorite Halloween activities are going to a local pumpkin patch, handing out (and eating!) candy and carving the pumpkin.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Cheers!

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas and Style Guide

Hello friends, and happy October!

Fall is my favorite season and it is also a popular time for weddings. Figuring out what to wear for different dress codes can be challenging anytime of year, and some of you may find it even more challenging as the weather gets cooler. I’m going to help you tackle your wedding guest woes with a style guide from The Black Tux and a breakdown of wedding guest dress ideas to wear for all the various levels of formality. Before I begin, if you are wondering what is appropriate to wear based on the time of the event or what it says on your invitation, check out the style guide below.

The Wedding Guest Style Guide - Plus a breakdown of what to wear for each occassion.

Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas

Now that you have an idea of what is acceptable to wear at the upcoming wedding you will attend, here is some inspiration for each type of dress. Listed from lowest to highest price, I picked out an affordable option (less than $75), updgrade option ($76-$150) and splurge option ($151+) so you can easily find something in your price range.

CASUAL

SEMIFORMAL

BEACH FORMAL

BLACK TIE OPTIONAL

 

BLACK TIE

WHITE TIE

I hope this guide and these outfit ideas help you figure out your “What to wear?!” dilemma, if you have an upcoming wedding to attend. Many of the dresses above can work for couple different levels of formality, like black tie optional and black tie. Investing in a dress that transcends different types of events is key. Personally, I think it is best to lean on the side of being slightly overdressed than under-dressed. If you can’t decide between a couple of options, pick the more formal one!

Rent the Runway can also be a great choice if you do not need another dress in your closet or you are attending a wedding that has a unique feel for which you know you’d never wear the dress you want to wear again.  If your date is having trouble finding appropriate attire, the Black Tux has lots of wedding suit and tuxedo options to choose from.  It’s basically like Rent the Runway for men!

Have you or has your partner ever used the Black Tux? I’d love to know how you liked it. I would love to know if you have any dress recommendations as well. If you have any clothing dilemma’s you are facing, I am happy to help you make a decision too. Just let me know!

Cheers,

Sarah Camille

Friday Favorite: What Alice Forgot

Hi Friends!

I am going to start highlighting my recent favorites on Fridays, so I will kick this series off with a review of What Alice Forgot. I picked up this book expecting it to be light and humorous. While it had those qualities, it had much more depth than I was expecting. If you love a good drama and character development, check out the synopsis and full review below.

Synopsis of What Alice Forgot

Alice Love is 29, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child. Then, all of a sudden, Alice comes to on the floor of a gym and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over. She is getting divorced, has three kids and is actually 39. Alice has to reconfigure the events of a lost decade and figure out whether it is possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to discover why her sister hardly talks to her and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.

Review of What Alice Forgot

This book was surprisingly raw at times and offered great insight on challenging life topics, like the death of a loved one, divorce, infertility and the ever-changing dynamics in sibling relationships.

When you read this book, you’re taken away on Alice’s journey of self-discovery. I loved reading how Alice gains a new perspective on herself and who she truly is. This book makes you think about how we all change overtime and asks the questions, “What life changes are inevitable? Which changes are for the good? And is it possible to change and remain authentically you?”

As someone who’s talked about the value of authenticity, it is probably not a surprise that this book appeals to me. However, that’s not the only thing I enjoyed about this book. What Alice Forgot dives deep into the common complications that comprise our closest relationships – those with our parents, our spouse and siblings. You see Alice grapple with how her relationships have changed, and there were so many parts of Alice’s struggle that translated to things in my life that I have seen come into play or have worried about.

What Alice Forgot is a book for any age, but it is an especially valuable book for women. It highlights the complexities in female relationships in a way that any woman reading this book will be able to relate. While this book handles difficult topics, they are balanced with funny and light moments. I never felt like the book became too much to handle. It was a wholesome book and an easy read overall. It will be hard to put down, once you are a few chapters in!

Fun Fact

This book is also set to be made into a movie! According to IMDB, Jennifer Aniston has been casted for the movie (hopefully she’ll play Alice!). The screenplay is written by Shauna Cross, who wrote Whip It!, What to Expect When You’re Expecting and If I Stay.  I will share any updates with you all if I hear more about the movie!

Now, I’d like to know – have you read this book? If so, how did you like it? I would love to know if you have read something similar too. I’m always looking for new books to read, so share any suggestions in the comments.

Cheers!

How FabFitFun Works

Before your box is sent to you, annual subscribers get their pick of which Fashion Boost and Beauty Boost item you want. There are different levels of subscription. If you want to just try it out and pay for one box to see how you like it, then you won’t be able to pick out the exact contents that will arrive in your box.

The total value of my box is $386.45. That is pretty amazing considering the high quality of the products included and the low cost of the subscription box. If you would like to try FabFitFun, the cost for one box is $49.99. If you buy an annual subscription, the cost per box is $45 and you get to pick which of the themed items you will receive. For example, I picked the beanie over the belt.

Of the items, my favorite has to be the gym bag. For some reason, I have never owned one and it is so helpful! I also can’t wait for the colder weather so I can breakout my new, super soft scarf and beanie. Bring it on, Mother Nature!

Is there a product in this box that you are tempted to get or try? Are you subscribed to FabFitFun? Have you ever used any of these items in my box? I’d love to hear your thoughts on subscription boxes like this one. Are there any similar subscription box programs that worth trying out? My curious mind would love to know!

Cheers!
