Color in Fall

Color in Fall | Lexi & Lady

TOP: J. Crew (similar, similar)  |  SWEATER: Target (similar) |  PANTS: Express  |  HEELS: DSW  |  EARRINGS: Kate Spade (similar, similar)

Fall color doesn’t have to be all about muted or the traditional camel, mustard, olive, etc. In fact, the Pantone Color Institute added a lot of fun colors to the 2018 fall/winter palette. I added two bright colors to this outfit I wore last week for work. The weather was rainy and overcast and I needed something to brighten the day. I paired the pink top with a neutral navy cardigan from Target and yellow/gold Kate Spade earrings friends got me last year for my birthday. They’re so light and comfortable and add a little glam to any outfit. Fall colors are my favorite every year, but some days call for a lively vibe. Do you tend to wear color in the fall or stick to darker colors?

Temps are supposed to go back up this week and I couldn’t be more upset about it. That’s the thing with Texas weather, it teases you with cooler days and then disappears! One day maybe I will live in a place with four season. In the meantime, the cooler temps have me dreaming of our fall vacation in Europe two years ago. It was beautiful and magical! Couldn’t have picked a better time to go in my mind. Walking through the leaf covered grounds of Versailles in Paris and Hyde Park in London will be memories I cherish forever and think about every fall.

Today is the hub’s birthday! We celebrated yesterday by going to Fogo de Chao in The Woodlands and spent the rest of the day relaxing. He’ll have today and Tuesday off work so I am sure he will continue to soak up the quiet and relax some more. We are looking for an inexpensive weekend getaway so share your suggestions in the comments below!

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Happy Monday all! You’re probably thinking “Really Becca? Fall? It’s 100 degrees outside!” My response to that is, it’s never too early to start getting your fall wardrobe essentials, especially with Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale starting on Thursday (for card holders). Sale opens to everyone on July 21. More details on this in a second.

How to Establish Your Fall Wardrobe

The first thing I recommend doing is think back to last fall/winter. Were there any items you wish you had? A pair of booties, some basic leggings, a heavier jacket? Pinterest is always a great place for outfit inspiration.

Then go through your closet and see if anything needs to be replaced. Wore out those ankle booties last year? Well now is the time to find new ones.

Next, make a list of things you need to pick up between now and the cold weather. Keep the list with you so if you plan to be at the mall or out running errands you can refresh your memory on what to be on the lookout for. Saving the list on your phone is a good idea.

Lastly, keep your eyes open everywhere you go. You never know when the perfect piece is going to be somewhere you least expect it.

What are Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Tops you can layer

Sweaters of varying lengths and style

Outerwear: vests, jackets, blazers

Bottoms: jeans, leggings, suede or corduroy skirts, wool blend pants

Shoes: booties, knee high boots, duck boots or snow boots (If you live or are traveling somewhere it snows), suede pumps

Accessories: scarves (plaid are my fav for fall/winter), beanies, felt hat, tights

nordstrom anniversary sale 2017

When you hear the term sale you think of outgoing, outdated merchandise. Basically things stores are trying to get rid of. Not the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s new stuff to prepare you for fall/winter. Which is WHY I’m sharing this fall wardrobe essentials post with you before the sale begins. Included in the Nordstrom sale are some items you can wear now. Not to mention the savings on huge brands like Tory Burch, Kendra Scott, Stuart Weitzman, Sam Edelman, and Rebecca Minkoff.

If you do plan to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale make sure you shop early, don’t hesitate on a purchase because it may be gone, and take advantage of the free shipping and free returns. Don’t know what size? Order two and send one back for free!

As a preview of the Anniversary Sale, I looked through their women’s catalog and picked out items I hope to add to my fall wardrobe. Of course I shared my picks with you below 🙂

Once the sale begins I will do my best to share my favorites on IG stories. Follow me! @lexiandlady

Want to make the most of your wardrobe? Pick colors to mix and match all season! Happy shopping! Until next post…xoxo Becca
