{Jeffery Campbell Solitaire Heels}

This is the perfect shoe in my opinion.  I love the black and camel combo, it would go with everything!!   Pretty sure these are coming home with me.

{Joie Snakeskin Blouse}

My sweet mom surprised me with this blouse when she came to visit last weekend.  She knows me well and knew I had been wanting a snakeskin blouse.  I love this one!  Fits perfectly and I know I will rock it all Fall.


How cute is this dress from Gap?  Love both colors.  A great transitional dress.  It is only $59 but you can get an extra 30% off thru tonight with code THANKYOU.

{Sarah Foster Fresh Everyday Cookbook}

I bought this cookbook awhile ago but I just recently busted it out and I am obsessed.  I have been making so many delicious recipes from it the past week.  For my Chapel Hill friends, Sarah Foster is the one who started Fosters Market which was one of my favorite places to eat while I was in college.  If you love to cook with fresh seasonal ingredients this cookbook is a must!

{Agate Bookends}

Another surprise from my mom.  They look perfect in Sterling’s big boy room!


I love October and all that Fall has to offer.  It is my favorite season.  Bring on the cooler temps, fires, red wine, boots and sweaters, tailgating, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

One more thing.  I am also guest posting at Anna’s beautiful blog A NewFound Treasure sharing my nexts!  Here is a sneak peek.  Check it out HERE!
