Since temperatures have started to head into preferable ranges I have had a blast dressing for the new fall season.  I have always been addicted to button down shirts and mad for plaid.  My new loafer obsession has kicked into high gear and I’ll be on the lookout for a nice pair at a reasonable price (or on sale).  New booties have been found (at Marshalls for $20!!  High five!).  Boots pulled from the closet and dusted off, made for walking, have been making a debut as well.  Scarves, oh scarves…  I can’t explain how excited I get to dress for milder temperatures.  Recent wears:

My new loves.  Extremely soft on the inside with a fur lining, just enough Western flair stitching mixed with a more modern shape, and a color that I can make go with anything.  For twenty bucks, that’s a steal.

My Old Navy Fall Picks

A chunky knit cardigan that I could LIVE in all season long, a flannel button down that is oversized for a boyfriend fit, merlot colored pants with zippered pockets for more of an edge, a tweed vest for layered perfection, all of these plus more caught my eye.  Old Navy has so many basic tops in all shapes, sizes, colors and textures – they are one of my go-to places for basics at great prices.  Think about getting some tops that fit well for your body type and make you feel cozy and comfy to layer under scarves, cardigans, chunky knits, button downs, and vests for the upcoming chill.  Fall is all about the layers, ladies and gents.

Flashback Friday


Woo hoo!!!  We made it to Friday!  Let’s celebrate!!


Flashback to D.C. with my little brother, Tucker.  (Isn’t he a cutie?!)  He’s in the process of starting his senior year of college and applying to medical school.  It is such a grueling task and I had no idea until watching him descend upon the craziness.  For all of you dreamers out there with a huge goal in mind, work hard!  Keep at it!  It will be worth it when your destiny is fulfilled!  Until then, continue to be grateful for the journey & work on your skills, keeping the hustle up!  Thank God for the ups and the downs.  #begratefulnothateful

Enjoy your Friday!  Cheers to the weekend!  ♥xo Kathryn


What I’m Pinning

I am still sorting out my outfit inspiration boards and getting organized with some new boards (beauty & spiritual inspiration), but the picture organization has refreshed my memory on some of the outfits I liked last year.  I believe looking at them again has been a great thing!  Once I get all of my clothing boards revamped I will tackle food boards (yikes!).  Here are some of my most recent pins:
