I’m feeling so happy after this weekend! I was in Jackson Hole with my family to celebrate my cousin getting married. Jackson Hole was the perfect place to spend the first weekend of October because fall is alive and well there (*cough* unlike LA *cough*). Every tree was bright yellow and there was a gorgeous sprinkling of bright red trees too… I was in Heaven! Have I mentioned that I think fall is my favorite season!? I Snapchatted (@jilliana5590) and Instagrammed a lot (@jillianattaway) so y’all could experience fall with me! I had yesterday off work because the school I teach at observes Rosh Hashanah so I enjoyed every extra minute of the long family weekend! I hope everyone had a wonderful time kicking off October this past weekend and had a great start to their week yesterday (oh, and go Buffs! Boulder is 4-1 after this weekend!)! For this Tuesday, I’m sharing my favorite fall floral top and how I styled it for an evening out in Santa Monica (for a glass of wine at Forma and the yummiest salad at R&D Kitchen).
The moment I saw this fall floral top (on sale!) I immediately wanted to scoop it up. Rebecca Taylor released it right around the time she had a 30% off sale so I took the plunge and made it mine. It’s even more on sale now at 40% off and still available in all sizes! I love that it is slightly cropped with a little peplum bottom because it gives the top a little bit of a feminine bounce. The fall floral print has my heart. I love florals so I try to wear them year-round instead of just in the spring and summer. The floral print against the dark navy top makes it the perfect fall floral!
I’m not kidding when I say that I actually won this Clare V. clutch (similar, similar, similar, similar)! I’ve gone through my life winning literally nothing. However, I think the tides are turning because, two weeks ago, I was checking out at the grocery store and I was randomly selected to win a carton of apple juice! I don’t even drink apple juice really but I was so excited! Then, last week, I attended a RewardStyle event in Los Angeles and found that I was one of two lucky winners to win a bag of goodies including a yoga mat and this Clare V. black fur clutch (similar, similar, similar, similar)! I literally couldn’t believe my luck! Since then, I’ve been carrying the clutch nonstop! I’ve been a long-time fan of Clare V purses so I’m still tickled that I won one. Thank you RewardStyle! I highly recommend snatching up an all black clutch for yourself too… so so chic!
Two weeks ago, I posted an outfit wearing this TOKYObay watch and I got great feedback on it from y’all! So, I’m excited that I’m sharing my other favorite TOKYObay watch with you today. I’m so bummed it slid on my wrist in most of these photos because you can’t see how amazing the band is! It’s two colors! Check it out here to see what I mean. The color combo is one of my favorites but TOKYObay has a handful of other color combos too!
Black booties… it’s time to bust them out! I’ve had these Michael Kors ones for years and am intent on wearing them into the ground because I love them so much. Since they are a few years old and no longer available, I’m sharing a few of my other favorite black booties here: the most comfortable booties you’ll own (I’m serious the sole is padded!), a steal of a deal, the classic booties your closet can’t live without, and the splurge-worthy booties you’ve probably had your eye on for a few years now.
