Fall is in the air which means it’s time to update those accessories and I am here to help make that easier for you. What if Rachel Zoe, the fashion icon, handpicked fashion, beauty, and home items and delivered them right to your door? You don’t want to have to pay retail for those items, so you can also get those items for a quarter of the price (or less with the coupon code FALL2017 for $10 off). Guess what, it exists.

For those of you that are new to Box of Style, ( I did a summer box recap here)  it’s a seasonal subscription box of luxury fashion and beauty items. Each item is delivered four times a year for only $99.99 per quarter. Sounds pretty great right? Now let me show you what I got inside the Fall Edition box!

GIGI NEW YORK CONVERTIBLE CLUTCH

One bag, 3 ways. It can be a clutch or need to be hands free? Grab the strap. It also makes an amazing laptop carry bag. Fits most 13 in laptops. Not to mention it’s the most perfect shade of navy with gold accents.

LA SOULA TWO-DIAMOND RING SET

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?  Can be worn so many ways. Midi rings worn together or separate plus comes in three different gorgeous colors.

ODEME GOLD CATCHALL TRAY

Everyone needs a gold tray on their desk or bathroom counter or really anywhere you want to feel chic and pretty. It’s the perfect size and color.

 

NUDESTIX PULSE GEL COLOR LIP + CHEEK BALM

Once again versatility wins. Go from day to night lips to cheek. Perfect for on the go touchups or traveling.

 

ORIBE SUPERSHINE LIGHT MOISTURIZING CREME

Transition from beachy waves to sleek fall styles with a fresh cream like this — it smells incredible too! Not to mention it helps tame my childrens wild, unbrushable hair.

SKINESQUE 3-STEP BRIGHTENING MASK

Grab a nice glass of wine, a fave show on Netflix and consider it a Spa Night in.  Treat your skin after months of damaging sun to a rich, luxurious max.

*I have partnered with Banana Republic on this post. As always though, all opinions are my own. Read more here.*

Knowing how to dress for my size has always been a talent I am thankful to possess. If I were to tell you how much I weighed you would be shocked (hopefully).  I know what to play up and I know what to camoflauge.  I’m a mom of 2 and I work out daily but I’m still 35 and I have learned wearing clothing that is built well will take you further than a pair of discount pants any day.

And if you are like me and spend too much money dressing your children, leaving you behind with a less desirable fall wardrobe fund you need pieces built well and versatile. So that you can accidentally have that capsule wardrobe you have been eyeing on Pinterest.

Enter the Devon-Fit Stretch Legging from Banana Republic.  They have the most amazing stretch that will last the full day as well as the next if you so choose to do so. Judgement free zone momma. They are slimming in all the right places and do such a wonderful job of smoothing just where you need it. Not to mention they go with everything and they come in bi-stretch, velvet, leather, and denim so multiple fabrics and colors available. On a side note. They do run a size too small, so I would recommend sizing up for the perfect fit.

Besides the flattering fit, the fact that they can be worn to work, date night, errands, or PTA meetings is a plus. I love clothing pieces that are versatile. Keep scrolling to see how I style these pants for different occasions.

School Function

Off Shoulder Bell Sleeve Top/Devon-Fit Stretch Legging

Every now and then I like to throw the teachers for a loop and show up not looking like a hot mess. So I paired my Devon Fit with a white shirt and flats for a perfectly pulled together outfit. No ironing needed which is also plus.

 

Running Errands

Fedora Hat/Devon- Devon-Fit Stretch Legging

Most days I’m a t-shirt and tennis shoes girl. So these were the perfect pair with my favorite tennis shoes for those casual days around town.

 

Meeting Appropriate

Devon-Fit Stretch Legging/Trench Cape

These pants are perfect for the office. They are tailored and professional yet still trendy. Pair them with pumps and a blazer and you will without a doubt close that deal.

 

Date Night

Devon-Fit Stretch Legging/Fedora Hat

After you close that deal, grab hubs and hit the town for a date night.  Add some clunky heals and a cropped top you are ready to go. Yes this is about as cropped as I will ever go.

 

Reversible Italian Wool-Blend Poncho/ Devon-Fit Stretch Legging/Fedora Hat

Another nice thing about these pants are that they are on the thicker side so if and when it decides to get a little cooler, you don’t have to worry about wind blowing through. These would also look amazing with knee high boots for extra warmth. Don’t forget to grab this Reversible Italian Wool-Blend Poncho it comes in 6 colors and has fringe so its a fall/winter must. I am wearing it here on the grey side and you can see the blue is peaking through.

 

 

 

 

ARIZONA CACTUS KIMONO | MAY I PLEASE DRESS | BABYDOLL TOP

 

 

Woohoo! You guys did it. You made it to Friday. Time to clock out momma. Ha! Just kidding but let’s still all celebrate making it through another week.  You all know I am always on the hunt for an online boutique I can shop at wearing no pants, with great prices, and unique offerings. Well I found another one that I can’t possibly keep from you all another minute. Not to mention, its a total BOSSBABE story which as you know I’m all about women bossing it.

Filly Flair started back in 2010 in the basement by a single gal with a dream and a vision to make something amazing out of nothing.  Fast forward a couple years they have grown into a full fledged warehouse with 20+ employees shipping out hundreds of thousands of orders. Talk about living the American Dream, right?

Their goal was to create clothing that makes women feel beautiful in their own skin and they totally nailed that as you can see from the pictures below. I would also like to point out that the items I am about to show you were all under $50 each and will totally be transitioned from summer weather we are currently in to the fall. And they offer free ship over $50. But act fast because stuff goes fast.

Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are my own as you can always expect from me.

ARIZONA CACTUS PRINT BLACK KIMONO

My kids will be the first to tell you how much I love cactus and as you can tell from past posts  kimonos are a wardrobe staple in my life. So this cactus kimono was love at first site. I am currently wearing it with shorts and sandals and as we transition into Fall I will pair it up with jeans and booties. Its lightweight enough now to wear it and enough room to be able to layer a small sweater underneath it as it gets colder. As for sizing I would say this fits TTS. It seriously added major pep to my step as I strutted through downtown Nashville.

 

MAY I PLEASE BLACK FLORAL HALTER DRESS

This dress is perfect for summer wedding season or a girl lunch with your little. It will also work so well come fall by throwing a bomber over it and wearing it with booties or OTK boots. I loved the large floral print and flowy material not mention that gorgeous halter neck looks great on everyone.

PS. This ran TTS

 

Vintage Dream Babydoll Top

If you were to take a step inside my closet you would see that black is a prominent color. Its in almost everything I wear. I can dress it up, I can dress it down. It makes doing laundry easy, it always looks puts together. Its good for every season. Basically its perfection. Which is why I had to have this adorable top in my life.  Its long enough to wear with yoga pants and cover the bum. This one has an acid wash so its on the edgier side which I absolutely love. Its currently not on their site so instead I linked you to the other colors in the same cut. Its super flattering and very comfortable. The fact that its $32 is just icing on the cake. I am wearing it with jean shorts right now and jeans. During fall I will throw a bomber jacket on top and be ready to rock the fall. Add a long necklace and you are good to go. This outfit went from lunch with my littles to Happy Hour with my friends.

PS.This ran TTS.

Now is the time of the season when I am over the heat of the summer and dressing for humidity and hotness and getting excited about cooler temps of fall. We still have many more weeks of wamer temps left but with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale everyone has fall on their mind and in their shopping carts.

I went to Nordstrom the other day to check out what goodies they had on sale in the store and ended up passing over all sale items for this amazing kimono. As you all have probably gathered by now color or pattern arent typically my thing but every now and then I stumble upon a piece both colorful and big patterned and its love at first site. Thats what happened with this guy. I plan on sporting it for the next couple weeks/months/years depending on our weather just like this.

Besides the versatility of a kimono another thing that I love about them is that they are really good at hiding that baby weight I havent been able to lose in years. Throw a kimono on and instantly feel 15# lighter. In regards to sizing, I actually tried on a large which is what I normally wear and ended up sizing down and loving the fit.

Once those temperatures start getting a little cooler, I plan rock this kimono with some of my favorite jeans , tshirt and closed toed shoes (clearly not pictured here yet). It’s flowly enough to put a light sweater under as well.
