If you follow me on Instagram, then you might remember me showcasing my new glasses I recently got from Zenni. I oftentimes find myself so busy these days that I don’t have time to make the several trips needed to get my glasses and prescription updated. If you can relate, then you’ll likely find Zenni as useful and convenient as I did! With most glasses under $50, you really can’t go wrong here, especially when they’re constructed of the same high-quality materials as other leading brands.
Since the frames were so budget-friendly, I decided to get two pairs – I figured having a backup pair would be wise since I already lost my original glasses. Plus, the ordering process was SO EASY. There are a ton of frame options, and I even used their Instagram user-generated selfies to help me pick out which styles I liked. OR you can use their online try-on images.
AND on the topic of glasses, I thought this would be the perfect time to put together a fall reading list. I try to read as much as possible although this gets pretty tricky, but once I get a good book going, it’s hard to put it down. And once daylight savings time ends, I know I’ll want to cozy up on the couch and get lost in a good book. Scroll on to find out what’s on my fall reading list.
It has officially dipped into the 70s here in Baton Rouge which means I’m about ready to whip out the crock pot and all the furry blankets! Although Jordan will have a heart attack if I bring home any more faux fur pillows, I can’t help but eyeball all the NEW cozy home decor accents out right now. Yes, we may have 10 seasonal blankets out, but that just means now I need a blanket ladder to throw them on right?! Plus, there are some major home sales going on this week:
I have been so excited for the arrival of October as it signifies the return of one of my favorite fall pieces: ponchos (and capes)! Although I’ll always love classic outerwear pieces such as a faux fur coat or a plaid blazer, there’s something about a poncho that I simply adore. So many new styles are hitting the stores, but my most recent obsession has been this one by Marks & Spencer. The mixed plaid and herringbone design is perfect for adding color and texture to your fall and winter outfits.
I have always considered ponchos to be an essential in my wardrobe, but I realize the unique and shapeless silhouette can be tricky to style especially for a date night. So today, I wanted to share a few tips on how to dress up a poncho in a chic and elevated way.
One trend that never goes out of style for fall – animal print essentials! You’ll find this popular print across statement accessories, footwear, handbags and clothing all season long. However, animal print pieces are also one of the quickest to sell out first, so make sure to catch them fast! I picked out several pairs of ankle booties and a scarf to include in today’s post, but by this morning, they had already sold out!
In today’s collage, I’m picking out outfit pieces inspired by this staple print for fall!

As I’ve mentioned before, one of the first things I always buy first for fall during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is boots! (This year was no exception as I stocked up on both ankle boots and knee boots.) And recently after going through my OTK boots from last year, I’ve realized that I need to retire a few pairs… But with so many styles out there, how do you know you’re picking out the best option? I’m helping you out by breaking boots down in three categories while showing you all my favorite styles at different price points in today’s Fall Boot Guide!
