Floral Midi







Get the look for less!




I'm loving the neutral grays out this season, a trend worth buying into!  Gray is chic and classic while still being trendy this fall.  I saw this skirt at Piperlime and instantly put it in my cart to order (runs small, size up).  I love that it has pockets!  I wanted to keep the outfit neutral, but still add some fun elements i.e. the graphic tee.  ILY Couture has some great graphic tees & sweatshirts.  A surprising neutral to definitely add to your wardrobe?  Leopard heels.  I'm crazy for them (just wore them HERE).  Loving this pair!

Happy Wednesday!  As always, thank you for reading :)

Last week I said that over the course of the month I'll be sharing my fall must have pieces, styles, and trends.  Last week was all about denim and today I'm giving  you the ultimate fall boot guide!

With temps in reaching in just the low 70's this week, I getting prepared by getting out the boots!  You with me?  There so many amazing boot/bootie style out this season it's hard to narrow down your options.  Hopefully I've been able to give you inspiration!  I'm head over heels for these boots and you'll soon be seeing them on my Instagram!  I just purchased these gray booties (which I've already worn 3 times!) and these leopard pair (on sale).  As I was hunting down the perfect picks, I found that Piperlime has an awesome selection of booties.  Their fall boot guide curates all the best styles, designers, and trends for  you!  It can be hard to narrow down what you're looking for if you're just not sure what you're looking for :)  I gravitate to shops like Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Piperlime because I can easily filter my search down by shaft height, heel height, color, and designer.  Brands like Gap, J.Crew, and Sole Society are great too since they smaller, beautiful selection. 

What boots are on your list for fall?  See more picks below!



Boots/booties under $100!

Happy Monday!  I'm a little pooped from the weekend.  We spent Friday and Saturday in Hershey, PA (literally the sweetest place on earth :)!  My husband's High School reunion coincided with his company picnic at the park.  Unfortunately it also decided to be the coldest day of September so far and heavy (not light) rain.  We were soaked and cold, but the nuggets thoroughly enjoyed the rides and chocolate!

I've had this blazer for a while and couldn't wait to pull it out with the cooler weather.  It's a beautiful muted lavender color.  I gave it a little edge with this necklace and leopard heels.  Isn't this fringe bag so fun?  The suede is soft and luxurious.  I had a hard time deciding on the color because it comes in a beautiful chocolate and regal navy blue.  I also got it 30% off during the Tory Burch Labor Day sale :)  Score!  I'm loving that the weather is turning a little cooler and I'm able to pull out my cozy knits and layers.  I hope you had great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a beautiful day!

Lulu Loves - Denim



CLICK TO SHOP OR...


Happy Tuesday!  Over the next several weeks I'm going to share my fall essentials including some trends and tips.  I had intentions of putting all my fall must haves into one post, but there was SO much.  :)  So I'm starting today with one of my favorites - jeans!  I pretty much live in them at home.  I'm sharing some favorite styles.  Not sure where to start?  Here are my tips for finding the perfect fitting jeans:

1. Know your size!  Most important: hips and your inseam (for ankles, flats, and heels)
2. What rise do you prefer.  I do not have a long midsection (it's sort of average).  I like a rise that is around 8"
3. Check the leg opening as well.  This is especially important with skinny jeans.  I prefer a narrow opening otherwise they look a little funny.
4. Petites: many designer jeans are offering petite sizing.  I have yet to find petite skinny jeans however!  So I look for cropped jeans a 26" to 27" inseam.

My favorite brands: AG jeans, 7 For All Mankind, Blank denim, J.Crew

Skinny jeans:


Boyfriend jeans:


Flare jeans:


Black & colored jeans:


Bootcut jeans:


Camo pants:


Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
