Striped Sweater Tunic




When you find a sweater that just encompasses fall, you buy it. Right? That's kind of what I did with this beauty from VICI Collection! It's marketed as a sweater dress but as you can see in these pictures, it's really more of a tunic. I was a little disappointed that I wouldn't be able to wear it as an actual dress, but the customer service team at VICI was incredibly kind and helpful and got it all straightened out for me! I'm happy to continue wearing it as a tunic and I think it looks so cute with leggings or jeans and OTK boots!

OUTFIT DETAILS

Sweater // VICI Collection (restocked in most sizes!)
Jeans // Target, old--similar here
Over-the-Knee Boots // Forever 21 (TTS)
Crossbody Bag // TJ Maxx, similar here
Lipstick // Bite Beauty in Glace
Nail Polish // OPI in Tiramisu for Two







I've been carrying this Chloe crossbody dupe around for several weeks and absolutely love it! Since this sweater has both navy and black in it, it really works with a lot of different accessories. I always love pairing black and tans together, too, so my new over-the-knee boots were a no-brainer. They're true to size, if not a little big, and under $40 so totally worth it if you're looking to try out this trend!

What colors do you reach for this time of year? I'm a rust orange, evergreen, and taupe kind of girl most of the time!

Leith Dress Dupe + Plaid Wrap Scarf






SHOP THE LOOK





Okay, I know we've all seen the cult-favorite Leith dresses that are taking over wardrobes everywhere, but I actually found this dress at Forever 21 for about 1/3 of the cost! It's shockingly good quality, too--thick material with a lot of stretch and feels really well made! I'm super happy with it and tempted to go back for one of the other colors, too! I knew I had to have this dark green color for the holidays, though. I love it paired with neutrals like you see here, but it would also be darling with red, burgundy, or gold for holiday parties or Christmas photos!





I've shared this wrap scarf combo before but since ponchos are all the rage right now, I just had to wear it again (I mean, I wear all of my stuff more than once--what's the point otherwise!) and I really love how it looks with the deep forest green. It can be worn as a wrap/poncho thanks to the arm holes, but you can also just toss it on as a scarf like the second to last photo above! Also added these taupe over-the-knee boots from Forever 21 that are super comfortable. I've worn them about 10 times since I got them, a couple of times for the whole day with lots of walking, and can't get enough! Like most OTK boots, they do slide down when you walk, especially when worn without pants, but I'm going to look into some DIY boot bra options and get back to y'all on what works best!

Do you have a favorite high end wardrobe dupe? Are you loyal to the Leith dress or open to knockoffs?

Easy Parmesan Roasted Green Beans


Fun Fact: I'm the world's pickiest eater. The list of foods I do like is a lot shorter than the list of foods I despise, and like most toddlers, I struggle to get in all of my fruits and veggies. Thankfully, I've found quite a few recipes over the years that make getting my greens fun and delicious and today's recipe is one even my kiddos have praised! It's all thanks to the addition of savory and authentic Parmesan Reggiano® cheese.



Parmesan Reggiano® is not your average parmesan cheese. This stuff is the real deal, imported straight from Parma, Italy and it even has the pin-dots on the rind to prove it! I love the flavor of Parmesan Reggiano® and the tanginess it adds to plain green beans, but did you know that parmesan cheese is actually pretty good for you? It's naturally lactose free thanks to it's long aging process, making it easy to digest, as well as being packed with added protein and calcium! You can read more about the health benefits of parmesan cheese here. Isn't it great that I can make a healthy food like green beans taste even better with another healthy ingredient? Who knew?!




These Parmesan Roasted Green Beans are such a quick and easy side dish to go with you next meal. Even your kids will be asking for seconds! The fresh grated Parmesan Reggiano® gives it such an intense flavor that really takes this dish from average to outstanding, and also fun to make! Download the recipe below to try it for yourself:

If you're a fan of fettuccine alfredo, chicken parmesan, fondue, cheese platters, or any other parmesan-worthy dish, try Parmesan Reggiano! It will completely change how you look at typical pre-grated parmesan!

Spicy Fall Lip Colors



Disclaimer: I hate pumpkin spice flavored things. I even hate spiced apple cider. Give me those scents in everything year-round, just don't make me taste them! It all just tastes like candles to me! BUT, I do love pumpkin spiced colored things, especially in my makeup drawer. Today, I'm sharing a few of my favorite Spicy Lip Colors for fall, so you can live out all your pumpkin spiced dreams! All of my picks are $26 or less, so you're sure to stay in budget (or grab more than one, I won't judge):





What lip color do you reach for during the fall? Do you have a seasonal favorite or just rock the same shade year round? Tell me what it is in the comments!
