Weekend Vibes: Hocus Pocus & Chill

Sorry for the lack of content this week, but I’m finally just starting to recover from the fresher’s flu. Literally half of my programme was struck by the nastiness, but now that I’m on the mend I thought I’d at least share some appropriately autumnal, witchy vibes.

Affordable Autumn Booties Under $100

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your kind comments regarding Tuesday’s post. It’s tough to get personal and vulnerable on the internet, but due to everyone’s support I will definitely be incorporating more personal writing in the future. Today, however, is for something a little bit more frivolous – fall fashion. While it’s still boiling in the Midwest, I know the weather will be much more temperate in London and the autumn chill will set in quickly.

Booties are some of my favorite fall necessities, and I’ve definitely stowed away several pairs to make for the big move. Fingers crossed they all fit in my suitcase! Shoes can be such a pain to pack. I’m such a big booties fan though because they’re so damn easy – comfy, stylish, pair well with jeans or dresses/skirts and perfect for pounding the city pavements without feeling like your feet will fall off.

Since I’m a bargain hunter, I thought I’d share some of my favorite affordable autumn booties with you, so you can stock up for the new season. They pair beautifully with crunchy fall leaves and pumpkin spice lattes.

Thank you for stopping by! I’m headed to Chicago to see some family before I move, so off to pack! Hope you all have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with some more London focused posts next week. xo.

Fall Fashion Transition: Faux Suede Moto Jacket

I know, I know, fall fashion? It’s only the first day of August! As temps are still clinging to the nasty nineties here in the Midwest, I agree that we are in no place to be wearing fall clothes. Crisper weather, falling leaves and fireside snuggling are simply too far away to dream about yet.

While I spent my morning bouncing around the internet and my favorite blogs, however, I came across a fab fall transition piece that I had to share, no matter how hot it it still is. One of my all time biggest blog crushes is Rose of The Londoner (just try not to get addicted to her site – I dare you), and she is rocking the hell out of a tan suede moto jacket in this post.

Rose’s jacket is great, but it does retail for over $800 (brand is Maje), so I quickly had to find a more budget friendly alternative. Luckily, I was actually able to find several looks for less to carry you into autumn. I think the color is perfect to still wear on chillier summer days and the suede creates a 70s boho vibe. Which is your favorite?
