Happy Friday everyone!  We're just back from a week long vacation to Puerto Rico!  I sure am missing the sun, sand and pool.  The weather here in New York is only in the sixties and it has been rainy and dreary! Yuck!  Anyway, I will have more coming up on our trip next week, but I guess it's time to start embracing fall around here, so let's talk fall wardrobe staples.  For me, this means floppy hats, a jean jacket, booties, and a fun new bag.  I have incorporated all of these staples into this one outfit so you can see how it all works together.  The jacket is old, but the hat, booties and bag are all new and all of them were under $40 each!  Investing in a couple of staples that you can wear all season long is a great way to update your wardrobe from last year and make it seem new all over again.  I wore this outfit a couple of weekends ago when we took a road trip to see Thomas The Train and Amish Country in Pennsylvania (I'll have more on that trip coming up too!) My birthday is this Sunday, so I look forward to some fun celebrations with my family! Hope you all have a great weekend!

I absolutely love floral print anything!  So when the weather gets cooler, I don't give up on florals, but instead go for darker versions.  I picked up this top pretty recently at my favorite store T.J. Maxx, and love its floral pattern and feminine look.  I paired it with jeans and a clutch and wore this for a date night recently.  Hope you guys are having a great week!  I'll be jet setting to Puerto Rico today, so I will have much more on my trip coming up soon!

Everyone seems to be in a "fall state of mind," but according to my calendar it's still summer and so I'm living it up!  I'm getting the most out of my light-colored florals, my bright bags and open-toed shoes.  We have an upcoming trip to Puerto Rico...where I look forward to wearing bathing suits, flip flops, tank tops and maxi dresses!  Fall and Winter will be here soon enough, but for now, I'm not ready yet!
