Welcome back into our Master Bedroom! I previously shared how we upgraded to a King size Leesa mattress (full review on this post here) and so far we couldn’t be happier! Since King mattresses are wider we decided to change up the layout in our master bedroom. It’s crazy how moving the bed from one wall to another makes the room feel so much bigger despite having a bed that takes up more space!
When fall rolls around I love wearing fun fabrics including leather, suede, velvet and more. Naturally, the moment I saw this velvet vest, I knew I had to have it! It’s such a fun piece that makes a statement but is still subtle in its own way. Plus, it’s perfect for a simple fall outfit idea. The color is great for fall and winter and will pair well with anything you have in your closet. I’m wearing size XXS but Petite sizing is available! I’m 5’3 for reference. Whether you style it with pants, skirts or over a dress, it’s sure to be a simple fall outfit idea you can just throw together.
Fall and winter are two of my favorite seasons to dress for. I love the colors and, of course, layering pieces. This striped cardigan is made of fun colors, which makes it so easy to pair with other items already in your closet. It’s super soft and so cozy! One aspect I really enjoy about this particular cardigan is how you can wear it to work and on the weekend. I have it in a few colors and always love getting the new season’s version because my sister and I share. This look with distressed jeans is more casual and great for the weekends. Plus, paired with messy braids, it’s the perfect combo for fall.
Who hates taking clothes to the dry cleaner? Even though some of my favorite pieces are dry-clean only and I absolutely love wearing them, it’s still a pain. Not to mention expensive. I understand the delicate nature of most silks, satins and wools but I know working women just don’t have time for that. I have a dry cleaner in my building (we use a drop off system) and I still have a dress I’ve been meaning to drop off for weeks!
I look forward to J.Crew’s 40% off sale every year! Right now you can use code GOBIG to get fall and winter must-haves on sale. J.Crew makes some of my favorite fall and winter must-haves, including wool coats and cashmere sweaters. Right now they are offering a huge 40% off select fall styles but honestly, almost everything is included. This is the time to buy cozy sweaters and warm coats for the fall and winter. Yes, there are sweaters and coats out there for less money but they are not wool, cashmere and will not keep you warm. When buying coats and sweaters, pay attention to the fabric. Is it mostly polyester or cotton? That’s probably better suited for a warmer climate. Wool and cashmere are incredible fabrics because they have tiny air pockets that react to your body temperature and circulate heat close to your body. So, if it’s hot, wool is still breathable and keeps you cool but if it’s hot, it’ll keep you nice and warm without making you sweat!
