Hello Simple && Sweeties,

Fall has finally arrived in Texas exclamation point it is officially the best time of the year to be outdoors! Finally, we ladies don’t have to worry about sweating off our makeup before the day even begins. Autumn is also the best time of year for dates! Visits to a pumpkin patch, corn maze, fairs and festivals, or going to meet his family over Thanksgiving all require one common element, a comfortable and feminine outfit.

As the temperature drops, so does my interest in prints. In my book, neutrals are a must for winter. Especially when paired with an accent metallic, the pieces are so versatile! Take this latest outfit from Amazon.Com, it could just as easily go to a pumpkin patch, stroll the bar district, or have a leisurely afternoon at a coffee shop.


When planning a date outfit, here’s my general rule:

“The clothes should make you look good not the other way around. Wear something that allows you to feel comfortable to be you.”

Alright, got it, get it, onward. Let’s break down the pieces, sizing and at the end I have a way you can save $5 if you order something from my site!



{ Fossil Earrings }

Thhe studs are stainless steel, shell, and under $35! They are my favorite to wear at the moment because the backs are large and flat, so they’re easy to forget you have them in, they’re that comfortable!!!


{ Cross-Over Off Shoulder Sweater }

This piece is as effortless as it looks, and could possibly become the center of the next “Sisterhood of the Traveling-” series if I’d ever consider lending it (that’s when you know it’s love, when I lend you my clothes). I’m typically a 6 (5’2, 36in bust, 29in waist) and I ordered a medium. Honestly, I think I could have gotten a size up or down and it wouldn’t make a huge difference because this sweater is supposed to be larger. It’s incredibly warm without being suffocating. Wearing it is like walking around wrapped in your favorite blanket! && It’s only $30!


{ CL by Chinese Laundry Suede && Leather Booties }

Finally, I found a shoe that doesn’t make me sacrifice stability for height. This bootie is perfect for walking across campus or down the block. I’m usually a 7-7.5 and I ordered a 7.5.

Quick tip: when ordering boots/booties, consider ordering a half size larger to accommodate sock thickness.

They are under $60 right now! && an added benefit of nude shoes is they go with almost everything!
