Flannel and Skinny Jeans

I love flannel, especially in the fall. I really love the combo of classic red with a striped shirt it's a little preppy but fun. I love these ripped skinny jeans from Forever 21 they are super tight but flattering. I finished the look off with a simple gold necklace and a lot of gold bangles. Check out the details and rock some fall flannel for yourself!

My shirt is ancient but this one from AEO will work perfectly. Comfort is key with flannel and this one will do you just right.


This is a staple piece that I wear so often. It's perfect for layering under a vest or a button up like I did today.

I love these jeans and they are skin tight. I usually wear a 27 but I bought these in a 29. The high waist tucked my tummy in nicely.

I have loved these shoes during the spring and summer but they worked quite nicely with this fall look. This is a classic shoes that isn't likely to go out of style any time soon.

This is a cute little necklace that works as the perfect light accessory. 

This simple gold bangle is the a great accessory that doesn't over power any look. It's a great deal on Amazon.

This bracelet is great on it's own and it works well stacked.

Burgundy Sweater and Ripped Jeans

I love to show you more then one way to style a great piece and this burgundy sweater you're going to see a lot this fall. Two weeks ago I dressed it up a little bit for a casual friday work look. In case you missed it here's that post. Today I am wearing it very casually with a great pair of ripped jeans. I wore the same Hyacinth pendant from my Rocksbox because the color is spot on for my cardigan but it comes in a bunch of different colors.

So the burgundy is now sold out but the green timber is also a great fall color that will turn heads.

My jeans sold out instantly but this pair is spot on for that ultra casual look and are totally on trend with the frayed hem.

I got a lot of compliments on these booties. Nude is a great color to buy because it goes with everything. These sleek booties gave this look an extra boost.

I really love this bag and it's going to be my go to this fall. It has a huge pocket in the middle that fits my jumbo laptop. It's totally worth the splurge.

Sephora Play July: Beauty Staycation

Last month's box had some real all stars in it. I'm a sucker for actual makeup samples especially mascara. Trying new mascaras is an expensive hobby of mine made cheaper through Sephora Play. Plus this box had one of my alltime favorite masks in it. Check out my reviews.

Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara $30
This mascara is pretty great. It's bold and dramatic and it doesn't smudge. Although on a really hot humid day there was a faint trace of black under my eyes. The applicator sucks though, especially in the sample size it was really hard not to get it all over my eyes. It took time and precision to get it right. But in the end I think it's worth $30.

Fresh Rose Face Mask $25-62
I'm super excited about getting more of this fab face mask. It's super hydrating but doesn't leave your skin oily. It's also very refreshing. It's perfect for a day out in the sun exposed to all the elements. It smells fresh and clean and is over all a terrific mask. It's definitely worth trying at $25.

Two months in a row this company has been in the box and I'm not impressed. It made zero difference in my hair. I usually use a keratin or oil based leave in conditioner and it works a lot better then this milk spray.

Send me all the brown lipsticks, all of them. If you weren't into this shade you would likely have stopped Play by now because they just keep coming and I love it. Unfortunately I keep finding ones I like, taking them everywhere with me and then loosing them. This one is only ok. It stays on long enough for a regular lipstick and the color is a little pinker then I like my browns. I don't think I'd buy another one though.

This is another winner. It doesn't smell great but it does what it says. It goes on smoothly and tightens my skin. I may selflessly give this to my mother as I do not yet have that many wrinkles, but it will hurt to give it away. I would definitely say it's worth the cost.

First of all i really approve of brands that offer a travel size. I personally like to mix it up. I liked this a lot. I found myself going back to it frequently. It's very earthy but not heavy.

Cold Shoulder Button Up and White Jeans

Here's another way to wear this cool $11 shirt from SheIn. To see my first look with it click here. I'm a little bummed out my jeans aren't as skin tight as they were when I bought them in June but I guess I can't complain too much about losing weight. I wore this look to a casual friday meeting and got a lot of compliments on the look. Here's all the details on the look.

Shop this look...

What a steal on a cool top. Everyone compliments this top it's unique and trendy.

These jeans were super skinny a few months ago. So much so I bought a 31 when I was a 29 but now I'm more like a 27. They were like jump and pull up skinny. Moral of the story buy one size up not two and try not to lose 10 lbs.

I finally splurged a bit and bought a nice pair of taupe low heel booties and I absolutely love them. They're sleek, trendy and pretty comfortable. I will get a lot of wear out of these this fall.

This came in my Rocksbox and I wasn't sure about it at first but now I love it. It was the perfect accent for this neckline. I didn't want something to compete with the tie neck but I didn't want to leave it blank either. I might just be keeping this one. Get a free month of Rocksbox with this code: amandabbff1130.

My saddlebag is old but this one has the same details. I get a lot of wear out of mine so it's a good investment.

Denim Shirt and Black Dress

It's starting to get cooler outside and a denim shirt is a great way to put off the chill and look fleek. I wore this look to a beer and cider tasting at Wyndridge Farm, where my friend Juli is getting married. It's a really beautiful place with lots of tasty treats so if you're local you should check it out. My sweet black t-shirt dress is actually a LuLaRoe Carly but I've found a great cheap alternative from Forever 21. I've worn this dress two ways, check out the first and second. Check out my look and get all the details.

This is a great tee at a great price. It's not see through and that little twist just makes it a little less ordinary.

These jeans are the skinniest of the skinny so order a size up. I can only wear mine at the end of the summer early fall when I'm at my very slimmest. Mine are a 8 and I'm somewhere between a 4 and a 6 right now.

I am totally in love with these shoes! They scream Mandie all over them. I love that they can be dressed up or down. Crushed velvet is going to be everywhere this fall so these are right on point.

Shopbop has it in black! Everywhere else the black is sold out. This bag is awesome becuase it has a pocket that fits my huge laptop in it. Plus it has a divider and little pockets and it's chic. You can't go wrong.
