This clutch is amazing.  I have already ordered it for Fall. It is such a steal and reminds me of the Claire Vivier one I have lusted over forever.  You can take an extra 30% off your order with code GAPEARLY The 30% off is just thru tonight so order today to take advantage of it!


I have wanted a pair of Hunter Rain Boots forever and I think this is the pair that is going to get me to bite the bullet and finally buy a pair.  I love the colorblock look with the black and tan.  They also come in a purple/black and green/black colorblock combos that are equally gorgeous.


I picked up a set of these ice molds and I am smitten with them.  Ever since having drinks at the Gin Joint where they served one giant ice cube in my drink I have been obsessed with recreating it at home.   These ice molds rock.  They would make a great hostess gift paired with a bottle of liquor.

They also come in a sphere shape which is equally as cool (no pun intended!)



Loving this Joie Dress for Fall.  Navy is my current favorite color for Fall and this dress looks so comfy.  


These need to happen in my closet for Fall, adore them.  Can’t decide which color I love more.  I love that they are calfskin, they look uber expensive but are such a steal!  And remember to use code GAPEARLY when you check out for extra 30% off.

This is the perfect loose sweater for Fall.  Paired with skinny jeans and flats or booties you have a great outfit.  I love the black and tan but I also kind of love the ivory.  There is something about a fresh white sweater I love.  This sweater looks pretty light weight which I also like because I don’t like sweaters that are too heavy.  And don’t forget to use code FALL on Piperlime for super savings – $20 off $100, $50 off $200, and $100 off $350, a pretty sweet deal!  The deal is only thru today so get shopping!

Another fab find at Piperlime, you can use the FALL discount towards.  This sweater is such a steal at less than $100.  Love the colors for Fall.  Such a great sweater to toss on over anything!


Really digging this black and white colorblock blouse from ASOS.  Black and white is such a classic color combo you can’t go wrong with it!

Adia Kibur Short Neon Stone Necklace
I saw this beauty on Pinterest and quickly clicked on it for more details. I am so sad it’s currently sold out on Shopbop. But I am hoping it comes back in stock soon. Its a steal at $54 and I am so loving neon pink right now!

I think I have finally found a plant I might not actually kill. My dear friend Alissa gifted me with this gorgeous arrangement of succulents for my birthday and she assures me they are easy to care for. They need little water and attention and look beautiful. I am notorious for killing even the easiest plants so here is to hoping I can keep this alive!

West Elm Little Parsons Table and Chairs
I am in love with this children’s table and chairs from West Elm! I so want it for my little man! It is on sale right now which makes me want it even more!

Shoshanna Aztec Bikini
I really love the pattern on this bikini. I am such a fan of strapless bikinis and bathing suits. They are really all I wear because I hate strap tan lines. I usually treat myself to one new bathing suit a year and this just might be the winner.

It also comes in a one-piece version which is pretty cute.

“Positano” silk fabric in Pink Lemonade designed by Interior Designer Amanda Nisbet
I am in love this fabric in a major way. Would love it for my dining room chairs. And how cute would it be in a little girls bedroom? Swoon.

I love fall and I am gaga over all these fabulous party ideas. Yes to the metallic pumpkins, pumpkin cooler, pumpkin carved address numbers and fabulous tablescapes!

I mentioned this wine awhile back over the holidays last year but we just picked up another bottle this week and it is a fabulous Cab. It is on sale right now at Harris Teeter for $19.99. It is so smooth with a great light finish.

If you aren’t familiar with this fabulous food blog you need to be. Amazing recipes and gorgeous pictures! Here are a few recents that have my stomach growling: Potato Rings with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch, Salted Carmel and Bacon Ice Cream Sandwiches, Fig and Caramelized Onion Tart. Truly amazing recipes here a must read!

At first I was super skeptical about this teen series, but I just finished the first book and I am hooked! I can’t wait to start the second book Catching Fire. I don’t even know how to even describe this series but I promise these books rock!
