Football is my favorite thing about Fall. I am glad that I finally found a shirt to express a few of my favorite things that pair perfectly with football. The only thing this shirt is missing is the word shoes. What can I say, shoes it will always be a favorite of mine. Anyhoo, back to this shirt. It is incredibly soft and has this perfectly lived-in feel.

Simple and easy is how I like my outfits. Comfort is key. No matter how simple the look, accessories will always dress up an outfit. My standout accessory is always shoes. Shoes will forever be my weakness. They speak to me. Whether it’s a heel or flat if I see a shoe that I like, I have to have them, especially if they are camo print.

I love casual outfits. Dresses are my go to look for an easy outfit. It is simple and it is one clothing item that takes the guess work out of what to wear. They can be styled to look casual or dressed up depending on the accessories. When I am not wearing jeans, you will most definitely find me in a dress. With temperatures heating up in Florida, a dress is a simple way to stay cool and look chic. You will also find me with my hair up. I am currently having a moment with braids. I plan on doing some more experimenting. Stay tuned for what I come up with next.

Pink is by far my favorite color. It was even one of my wedding colors. I wear it everyday. It may not be in the form of lipstick, lip gloss, or as my under garments if it is not visibly seen as part of my outfit. I just love pink, which is why I wanted to build a pink outfit around this scarf.  Initially, I  wanted to do a monochromatic look with pink. However, once I was dressed in my pink jeans and pink everything else, I looked like I belonged in the game Candy Land. That was not the look I was going for. I switched to good old-fashioned blue denim with a little distress to toughen up all of this pink. The scarf is no longer available in pink on Nasty Gal, but it is available in heather grey here.

The Best Black Booties…

Burgundy Turtleneck: Old Navy | Camo Vest: J.Crew Factory; Sold Out; Similar | Skirt: Nordstrom | Bucket Bag: Old Navy (Sold Out); Similar | Booties: Tory Burch | Earrings: BaubleBar (Sold Out); Similar  | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

These booties are AMAZING! My quest for the perfect pair of black booties is over! It seemed as if I liked every pair that was unavailable in my size. David must have been reading my mind about my endless search for black booties. He actually bought me a pair for Christmas, but they were not my style. I found this pair instead and ordered the very last pair in my size and returned the others. These booties are perfect in every way imaginable. They have buttery soft leather, a chunky heel, true to size, and are extremely comfy. Though these booties are sold out online on Tory Burch,  Zappos has them available in black suede. I highly recommend them.

You can never go wrong with black and white, especially when it involves stripes. Black and white is a classic pairing. Why not pair it together with different patterns of stripes? As long as the stripes are in the same color family, mixing different patterns of stripes is perfectly fine. You do not have to be matchy matchy. I used to think that my outfits always had to match exactly, but now as I get older, I mean younger, I care  less. All you need is confidence and to have fun with clothes. Fashion is meant to be fun, which is why I paired these black and white stripes with leopard Steve Madden pumps. Besides, since leopard is a neutral, it goes with everything.

I love the color burgundy. I like burgundy because it reminds of wine. Then again, what woman does not love wine, right? Burgundy pairs well with many rich hues. I like it especially paired with browns and oranges, which all go great with my complexion. This burgundy turtleneck is super soft and cozy. I have it in every color Old Navy makes, but I bought this one first.  I highly recommend these turtlenecks. They make a great staple and layer very well under other pieces.  I have found them to me go to layering piece topped off with a scarf since the weather can never make up its mind in Tampa. Typical Tampa is chilly in the morning and then 70s by mid-afternoon. Speaking of scarves, Zara is sold out of this version, but has other plaid options.

P.S. Please Old Navy, make more of these turtlenecks!
