First Day

I wore this on the first day of fall. Dark florals are great for transitional weather.  The shape of this dress is a little bit different from what I normally wear but I like the change.

Light Layer

I wore this for a little bit of shopping with my friend. I layered the leopard shirt over the tweed tee because I wanted a light layer.

I've been wearing this skirt a ton. I'm not sure how much I'll wear it in the winter so I'm trying to get a lot of wear out of it before it's time for tights.

Totes under $75

I do a lot of networking. I did a little bit less over the summer but I'm getting back into it now. My regular purse is good for everyday but I think a large tote would be better for networking. I normally have a flyer for an upcoming event and I don't like having to carry it on it's on. A tote would hold the flyers and all of my other stuff nicely.
This Simply Vera Vera Wang bag looks good. I love the oxblood ombre. The ombre adds a little bit of interest to a simple style.  $58.99
This Betsey Johnson bag is just adorable. I love the mint and polka dot combo! It also comes with a removable polka dot bag. $73.50
This Charming Charlie bag would go with a lot of things. I tend to carry my pink bag with everything so I know the pink wouldn't stop me from pairing it with all sorts of colors. On sale for $29.
This BP bag is probably the most basic but it is the most versatile. I like all of the strap options. I really like being able to carry my bags in a few different ways. $49

Still Summer

I know everyone is thinking about fall but it was 90 degrees so it's still time for florals. I wore this to a networking event. I've been feeling a bit more comfortable in pants. I'm still a dress/skirt girl but it's nice to have options.  I still feel like pants make me look shorter but I really like the color on these and they aren't too long. I just ordered them in green too.

Casual Pom Poms

I wore this to karaoke. I wanted to wear my pom pom shoes in a more casual way. I got this leopard top from ThredUp. I knew I would like it because I already have it. The one I have is a little too small so when I saw it in a size up on ThredUp I grabbed it. To me leopard is a neutral.

Transitional Maxis

Maxi skirts aren’t just for summer. I think they can be a really good transitional piece. If you go for a skirt that isn’t super floral and bright it can work year round.

A black maxi is great for year round. This one is under $25! It can be paired with so many different sweaters in the winter and fall. I also like this one with a high slit for under $40.
This navy taffetta high low skirt would be perfect for winter and fall weddings. And it’ll still look nice for end of summer dress up events. 
Polka dots are seaonless print and this shade of blue is great year round. It’s made with chiffon so you still get the fun floaty feeling of a summer maxi.

Travel Style Diary

At the end of August my family and I went to Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas City. We flew Spirit so I had to pack everything in an under seat carry-on. So I tried to stick with things that could be mixed together. I'll link to similar things at the end of the post. I did wear my sneakers a lot because my family does a lot of walking.
I really like Chicago. We've been there before. We staying in Chinatown this time and went to a White Sox game. Last time in Chicago we saw the Cubs. We did a ton of walking around the city. We went to the zoo and Oz park. We did a crime tour I thought it was really interesting. We also went  to a speakeasy it was really fun to do because it's a secret entrance. Here's a list of the 18 best in Chicago. We also tried Jeni's Splendid ice cream. I had been wanting to try that ice cream for a while.
We spend 2 days in Kansas City. We did a Cardinals game. We also went to the Arch and hung out at the Delmar Loop area. We did the Budweiser tour. I was really excited to see the Clydesdale's. We also went vintage shopping. I got a bracelet and ring from Vintage 101. I wanted to go to Ruth's Vintage but it was closed that day. They are both on Cherokee Street. We had dinner at the Shaved Duck. It was a cool place.
We had a short day in Kansas City so we fit a lot of stuff in. As soon as we got there we went to Joe's KC barbecue Shea recommended it to me. I really enjoyed it, I didn't realize it was a famous bbq place until I saw all the news articles on the wall. We went to a Royals game and after wards got ice cream from Glace. Here are Shea's top 5 ice creams in Kansas City. I picked Glace because I really like Christopher Elbow's chocolates so I thought it would be cool to try his ice cream. I really loved it. It was so rich. I think I would have liked another day in Kansas City. It looked like there were some cool shops and tons of barbecue.

Palms and tassels

This is just a quick outfit. I wore this to get some BBQ.I really like this lipstick,. It's Urban Decay Firebird. I got it from the Gwen Stefani collection so I only wore it sparingly but now it's part of the regular line. I think it's a really unique color.

August Budget

It's time for my August budget post. I only shopped at ThredUp this month. You can read about my experience buying and selling with them here. Since this is all sold I'm going to point you towards some similar items.
1. J.Crew Tweed Tee (similar) I haven't worn this yet but I see myself getting a lot of use out of this. I think it's a really cool tee-shirt.
2. Loft Leopard Blouse (similar) Like I said in my review I already have this blouse it's just too small. I've worn the other one a ton and now that I have one that fits I'll be able to wear more leopard!
3. J. Crew silk blouse (similar), I love the color and the neck detail. I've worn it with olive pants.
4. J. Crew Plaid Tee (similar) This screams fall to me so I haven't worn it yet but I am already thinking of things to pair it with once it cools down.
5. Liberty Floral top (similar) I love the neckline detail on this one too.
6. Club Monaco Feather skirt (similar) Like I said in my review this is a little tight but I'm holding on to it because I've been wanting a feather skirt for a long time and it was a good deal. I'm trying to be very thoughtful with my purchases but since I'm working out more I don't think it'll be too tight for long.
7. Halogen Polka Dot skirt (similar) I've worn it here. I think the length of this is just perfect for me. It will go with so much.

Normally I break I list the price of everything indivuadlly but I had a coupon. Then I had a credit from selling that was just taken off the total I'm just giving the grand total. For 7 pieces I paid $68.78!
