Styling a Spring Dress for Fall & Guide to Pittsburgh

orange swing dress faux leather jacket

If I have said it once, I have said it one hundred times, I love a versatile piece that can be worn across the seasons. I first bought this orange swing dress in the spring (you may remember it from this post) and I loved wearing it all spring. Once the temperatures warmed up, I had to put it aside, but was determined to find another way to wear it once the cooler temperatures arrived. We spent the weekend in Pittsburgh a few weekends ago and couldn’t wait to style this spring dress for fall.

Can you believe Halloween is just two weeks away? It feels like just yesterday I was sharing last year’s Halloween-inspired recipe with you (you can see that here).

Since the Churro Cupcakes were such a hit back in the spring, I thought I would share another cupcake recipe with you today.

Save: cold shoulder top | statement earrings | bag | aviator sunglasses | lipstick | jeans | ankle booties

Happy Wednesday, friends! One of my favorite types of Wednesday Wishes to share on this little space of mine are splurge vs. save outfits. Although the most challenging, I love finding designer lookalikes for less. The inspiration behind today’s theme is this crazy warm weather. Dressing for work is becoming more and more difficult — I now understand why people in warmer climates wear summer clothes in fall colors! In that spirit, I wanted to share a date night look that is perfect for this transitioning to cooler temperatures weather. A little wear now outfit inspiration: no fall layers here! Without further ado, here is a fall date night outfit: splurge vs. save edition.

Caramel Apple Granola

If you have been following along for awhile, you probably have caught some of my other granola recipes. I love adding granola to my vanilla yogurt so I am always thinking of new ingredients. I started with the original recipe (here) and have made seasonal changes like peanut butter granola and most recently, carrot cake granola. For fall, I wanted something that really represented the flavors of the season. Caramel Apple Granola sounded fitting.

It is safe to say that my love for statement sleeves runs pretty deep. I have shared quite a few statement sleeves this fall, and this purple ruffle sleeve top is the latest in my ever-growing collection. I wore this outfit two weekends ago to the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and Kendra Gives Back event with Kendra Scott. Given the event, the outfit would not be complete without purple and a few Kendra Scott pieces.

I’ve shared a few color inspiration posts this fall: from green (post here) to blue (post here) to a fall favorite, rust (post here). But one trend for fall that I have been particularly loving are shades of brown. From cognac to chocolate, it’s safe to say that brown is the new black.
