Friday Files: It’s Fall!

Happy Fall ya’ll! Some weeks are busy and we don’t have much we’ve seen to share but this week…. oh, but this week- we are an overflowing cup of good stuff! Take a look!


Tasseled Agate Lariat Necklace


I love this Agate Tassel necklace at Anthropologie.  I also love this Luciana Tassel Necklace.  They both would be great for layering over a multitude of outfits throughout the fall.  They are versatile and could be dressed up for a fancy night out or dressed down for casual around town.

Vow to be Chic – Bridesmaid Dress Rental Site


Calling all future Brides and Bridesmaids!!  This one is for you…

We are getting into the swing of wedding planning for my sister’s upcoming nuptials.  Now that she has found her dress (!!!!) next on the list is bridesmaids.  As much as every bride likes to think you could “totally wear the dress again” (probably to help them feel slightly less bad about the price tag), in actuality you will never wear the dress again.  I came across the Bridesmaid Dress Rental site, Vow to Be Chic, on my hunt to somehow find a way to make the sting of a bridesmaid dress hurt less, while still allowing my sister to have her vision come to life.  Much like Rent The Runway, they carry designer bridesmaids dresses, which you can rent for the big day.  Most rentals are under $100, they send you two sizes two weeks before the wedding, and you can even order one to try on before the wedding.  This is a great option to give your bridesmaids in addition to buying the dress.

Quilted Vest

JCrew Factory currently has all “Fall Favorites” marked 50% off.  The sale includes these quilted vests, which are a fall staple in every girls closet.  They can be thrown on over jeans and a shirt and even work over the #momiform of lululemon yoga pants and long sleeve top.  My heart loves gingham but the herringbone pattern won me over and came home with me.  Hurry and grab one before your size sells out!

Girls Barn Jacket


Every year I grab the girls a Quilted Barn Jacket from Gap.  I love the classic style of a Barn Jacket (I have my heart set on this Barbour Jacket) and my girls look adorable in them.  Two years ago Gap had it in classic navy, last year they had a really cute chambray barn jacket but this year I wasn’t totally sold on the metallic champagne & olive colors they have (still cute, I just wasn’t sold).  I recently saw this Navy Barn Jacket from Cat and Jack at Target.  My heart skipped a beat!  I love the navy and gold details, but even more I love the price tag! (Right now Target is running BOGO 50%, which makes buying jackets for two kids even more fun!)


Watching & Reading

I am ALWAYS looking for good book and show recommendations.  I thought I would share a few of our household’s current favorites!


  • Thanks to a recommendation from a follower I recently read Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarity and it was SOOOO Good.  Highly recommend!
  • My husband and I started watching and just finished the third season of the AMC show Turn (after my parents recommended it) and we LOVE this show!!  It is about the Washington Spy Ring on Long Island during the Revolutionary War.  Like most AMC shows (Mad Men is my favorite show of all time) the characters are so well developed and the fact that it is based on historical events makes it even more thrilling.  Plus, I really love George Washington’s character, the actor portrays him just how I imagined he would be.  If you are looking for a show start watching this, it is available on Netflix!
  • After finishing Turn we started watching the mini series on HBO John Adams (we can’t get enough of our Country’s start).  We are currently in the middle of this series but it has been so good as well.
  • I just started reading Before the Fall by Noah Hawley.  So far, I love it!



Girly Plaid Blouse


Since I’ve seen this top I can’t unsee it. All other plaid shirts are compared to this one and  none compare. Unfortunately there are only a medium and large left so I’m sitting here hoping and praying that they will get more in stock. This top just seems like the ideal cozy Fall shirt and I’m going to jealous if I see one of you wearing it.

Lisbon Bag


I’ve never owned a designer purse or bag in my entire life. If I COULD choose I think it would definitely be a Chloe bag and to me, this Lisbon bag follows much of the same look. At only $130 with an additional 30% off right now I’m seriously contemplating adding this to my fall wardrobe.

Off the Shoulder Thermal Tee


This top is available in multiple colors and I’m calling it right now that you’ll be seeing it as a staple for many fashion bloggers as the weather cools.



I had to incorporate booties into the Friday Files with the today being the first Friday of Fall. Although, these are a bit pricier than I would normally spend on boots, the fact that they are so classy, unique and versatile make me this close to just investing in them.


I’m dying over this European company’s infant bodysuits. All of the spring/summer line is on sale right now and it’s making me want to hop on a flight to Italy just to buy it all up. Pineapples. Sprinkled donuts. You name it. And their fall line is just as incredible. There has to be a retailer here in the USA, right? Help me so I can win Best Gift at all of my friends’ baby showers 😩
