There is nothing I love more than a good long sleeve tee in the fall and winter. As someone whose body temp runs cold, I find myself freezing from October to March. I live in layers, piling on all the scarves and cozy knits just to stay warm. My base layer is ALWAYS a long sleeve tee. From work to the weekends, I live in my long sleeves, so it’s important that I have a variety of cute and comfy options on hand!
I am happy to report that I have found the ULTIMATE long sleeve tee at Nordstrom this year! In fact, I love it so much that I’ve already purchased it in 3 colors and plan on picking up a few more. One of the reasons I love shopping at Nordstrom is for their wide variety of items at varying price points! I am always sure to find things that I LOVE.
There is a lot to love about this shirt…a rounded neckline, soft fabric and a longer length just to name a few! I love that the longer length allows me to wear it with leggings (bum coverage!) and the split hem adds a cute detail! I’ve also been tucking in the back and tying up the front to really mix it up! If I haven’t already sold you on this perfect long sleeve tee, the price should do it. This cutie is just $19!!!!
For under $20, this basic is a total steal as I know I will get a ton of wear out of it! I thought I would show you 3 ways I have worn my 3 long sleeve tees! Look 1 is actually something I wore to work. I tucked my striped tee into the cutest corduroy skirt (under $50) and layered with a scarf (I also included tights for work!). I adore the stripes and plaid combo! For look 2, I paired my favorite base layer (jeans and a white tee…duh!) with the coziest cardigan. This is an easy outfit to recreate and could be worn to work by swapping the distressed denim for black pants or non-distressed skinny jeans. Look 3 might be my favorite. The longer length of this tee makes for the cutest layering piece. I love the pop of stripes peaking out from the sweater and it doesn’t hurt that it adds an extra layer of warmth!
Over the knee boots are one of my must have fall essentials! A great pair of OTK boots can make a basic sweater and jeans combo look instantly more chic. From pairing them with denim and a sweater to a dress, OTK boots are my go to shoe choice in the fall and winter! See how I styled them earlier this year here.
I’ve tried multiple pairs of OTK boots and have yet to find the perfect pair that don’t break the bank, until recently! The options I have tried all had great price tags, but I was let down by the quality. Either they sagged (the absolute WORST), were uncomfortable or felt/looked cheap. The moment I discovered these over the knee boots, I knew I had found the PERFECT pair! The quality of these boots is amazing, they definitely feel and look more luxe than their price tag would suggest! They are comfortable, have just the right heel height and most importantly, they stay up! They are truly the ultimate over the knee boots!! I now own them in 2 colors and am eyeing the black, because they are just that good! I paired my cognac boots with a great pair of dark wash denim and an oversized tunic sweater. This outfit could easily be worn to work (swap out the denim for black jeans if needed) or for date night! Accessorize with a floppy hat and top with a plaid scarf for all the fall feels!
If you have been looking for the perfect over the knee boots, I highly recommend this pair! They come in black, grey and cognac and are under $150! Shop this look (and my favorite OTK boots) below!
This ruffle sleeve mini dress might be the cutest item in my closet! This summer I had a huge crush on anything with ruffle sleeves and even though the season has changed, my love for all things ruffles remains! The moment I spotted this ruffle sleeve mini dress, I knew it was the perfect little summer mini. I wore this quite a few times this summer, from a dinner date to a day on the lake (see how I styled it here) When I rotated my wardrobe from summer to fall (anybody else do this?), I had a hard time putting this one away. I decided to keep it out and bring it into the colder season with me!
This ruffle sleeve mini dress is the perfect neutral for layering! I paired it with a cozy plaid scarf in autumn tones ( only $26!) and my favorite (and most comfortable) heeled boots for a fall Saturday. As the weather gets colder, this mini dress will be perfect paired with some leggings! I actually plan on wearing this exact same outfit with leggings to work! It’s the perfect cute and casual outfit, but I love the fun touch the ruffle sleeves add! It’s official, this ruffle mini will be on repeat all year long!
I can’t believe it’s already mid-October! I feel like this month is flying by! October is one of my favorite months in the classroom as our class learns all about pumpkins. The past few years, we have even carved pumpkins in class, and despite the craziness that always ensues, I love watching my firsties with this hands on experience. Speaking of pumpkins, I have yet to make my way to the pumpkin patch this year and I hope to before the end of the month! Have you been to the pumpkin patch yet?

Is there anything better than a sweater dress? It’s an easy way to stay cozy while still looking cute! I find myself reaching for my sweater dresses frequently in the fall to create an effortless outfit. This option is perfectly oversized and made of the softest chunky knit. When it gets colder, I plan on pairing it with over the knee boots. It’s easy to dress up or down and will be perfect to wear to work or on the weekend. I am linking up some more sweater dress options that I am loving below! You will definitely see me style more sweater dresses this fall and winter!
It’s been a long time coming, but I finally made the switch from Blogger to WordPress and so far I am loving it! I’ve been on Blogger since 2011 (how crazy is that?! Get a good laugh and check out one of my first posts here) and probably should have made the switch sooner, but as someone who doesn’t like change, I was super nervous! The team over at pipdig made the migration seamless and I could not be happier! The process was quick and they handled everything for me…something I was really stressed about! If you haven’t made the switch, I highly recommend doing so and can’t recommend pipdig enough!
