Back To School: Sage Sweater

I’m beyond bummed that I’m not returning to school this fall, but I am hopeful that I’ll be attending graduate school soon! I thought it would be fun to share an outfit that is great for going back to school or simply a cute outfit to wear out and about. While it’s an outfit that is more for cooler weather,  planning for fall is always an exciting time. I made a few purchases from Forever 21 and found this sweater at an INCREDIBLE price. I’m serious. You absolutely cannot beat the deal of this sweater. At any boutique this top would be almost triple the price. I love the sage color and cable knit fabric. I’m also in love with the cut out back. I think it’s very business in the front, party in the back! You’ll definitely love this sweater as much as I do.

Trend Alert: Caged Back Sweater

I’ve already started shopping for cooler weather, even though it’s still pretty warm in NC. I found this sweater at Forever 21 and purchased it for its color, lightweight material, and caged back detail. It’s one of those pieces you can start wearing in the summer and easily transform it into a fall look. It’s less than $16, so it’s definitely budget friendly. I ordered a size up (medium) to have a more oversized look and just rolled the sleeves up. I love tucking in oversized tops and wearing a statement belt. I think it’s super fun! This sweater comes in three different colors, and all three are gorgeous, I am wearing the light blue.  You can shop this sweater here!

Hand-Me-Down Turned Up

Nothing beats getting clothes for free, so hand-me-downs are always one of my favorite things. This romper is the product of one of those hand-me-down times! I love the floral details and that it buttons down the front. It’s a skort romper (very 90’s) and is beyond comfortable. It reminds me so much of the rompers made by Show Me Your Mumu – a few similar ones can be found here and here. I paired it with a hat from Forever 21 (similar here) my favorite Lucky Brand Shoes from Belk, and sunnies from It’s Fashion Metro.

A Sucker For Seersucker

I found this precious seersucker button down at Forever 21 and have been wearing it non-stop ever since. It is ever-so-slightly oversized so it is perfect for keeping cool in the heat of the day. I’m a southern belle, so you already know I’m gonna style it with white jeans and a monogrammed necklace! Similar tops can be found here and here.

To start off this week, I want to share a little excerpt from a book I’m reading called “Uninvited” by Lysa TerKeurst. “Pain is the invitation for God to move in and replace our faltering strength with His.” Now, is it Friday yet?
