Jacket / Tee c/o / Skirt / Heels, similar / Bag / Bracelets 1, 2 / Earrings / Rings, similar / Sunnies 

"I have nothing to wear!" I have to be honest, I feel like this almost everyday! A closet full of clothes... and nothing speaks to me! I really think it comes down to a creative block (you know, like what writers get all the time). I mean hey, it can happen! Finding a new spin on old pieces... or even finding humor in the things that make life a little weird: that's where I'm trying to find my space.

In comes this tee from my friends over at 9th & Elm.  LOVE! First off the site is absolutely amaze! Think Group Deals paired with Etsy! Lovely pieces that are all handmade by independent designers. The prices cannot be beat and the designer slots are always changing... so you really never know what you will find. (Other than the obvious amazingness!)

When I am feeling a little lost and have no idea to wear... this is what I reach for! Simple, staple pieces that I can throw on a t-shirt and heels and look like I somewhat have a clue....

What do you feel most comfortable in? Do you get closet creative block like me?

Ps- Make sure you check out 9th & Elm for all things Handmade, Independent, & Otherwise Cool

I've been keeping things pretty simple on the outfit front lately... reason one being the crazy weather here lately and reason two is the fact that summer is coming to a close and I am ready for a new season! Like everyone else out there FALL IS MY JAM! I love fall fashion and am always anxious for the September issues to hit the shelves. There is nothing like it! I love to layer, plaid is my BFF, and I can get enough of sweaters, boots, and scarves... so while Summer 2014 has been the highlight of my life... bring on Fall!!!! 

I found this amazing jacket on the H&M website when I went searching for the perfect denim jacket. I had been eyeballing one from Nordstrom... but it was a little steep as far as price goes. So, when I found this gem for $20 I almost died. I love the light denim and know it will transition into early fall well... but on top of that I can carry it into next summer! I love finding great staples at low prices. I always feel like I've hit the lottery.

I hope you had a wonderful, lazy weekend. Here's to a new week!

Thanks for reading!

I am a little obsessed with white denim y'all! Like major! These shorts have been on repeat all summer... They're just  so comfortable.  I wore this last week to take babe on a surprise date for his birthday. We spent the evening enjoying a small town dairy barn dinner.  Luke started a new job and is commuting over an hour for work... So time is of the essence when we get to see each other. I took him about 30 minutes from home to a small little dairy bar for ice cream and dinner that we took downtown and had as a picnic. He loved it! Of course we had to celebrate with cupcakes too!

Ps- The top is still available in store, but not online. I am obsessed! 

Happy weekend and thanks for reading!
