3 Ways to Style a Floral Dress for Fall


Perfect Fall Floral Dress

Style One: Dressing up for a Evening


Add some classic heels and black mini bag (preloved, similar) for an elevated, chic look for date night!


Look Two: Casual fall look 


Add some booties and denim jacket for a cute, casual look for apple picking!


Look Three: Athleisure Chic Style 


Throw on an oversized sweatshirt for effortless style and add matching sneaks for a ultra street style look!


Which is your fave style?

I must admit that I am loving all the looks and such a versatile dress! It’s lightweight, yet has a nice heavy rayon drapey feel. Shipping only took less than a week and I ordered a medium although I could have ordered a small. This dress is definitely forgiving and my apple shaped body loves the flowey cut. When trying to stay in a budget, maximizing my wardrobe is a must and this dress is definitely a winner!

I am so ready for some cooler weather and most definitely my fave season!!

Hello every! Another month, another recap of what I bought. We took the kids on a California trip for their fall break (they get a week off this year from school) which we planned way back in February. I’ve been saving all of my cash back from Amex, BOA Travel Rewards, and this new Chase Rewards card to fund about 80% of the trip. We stayed with my hubby’s cousin and family for several days and hit Disneyland, California Adventure Park, Catalina Island, and the San Diego Zoo. Such a fun and active vacation and the kids had a ball of course!

Everyday Watch Style with Jord


Sawyer Watch

My husband loves watches but very particular about the fit and finish. I don’t know about your hubby/significant other but shopping is not his thing-at all-haha! He’s probably scarred because his Mother took him to the malls all summer growing up. Hiking or hanging out with the kids at the pool is where he would rather spend his time vs shopping at a store. So we make a great team and he relies on me to help him select clothing, shoes, and watches that fit his lifestyle.

He loves eco-friendly and sustainable things as well as comfort and uniqueness. So when when we found out about Jord watches, he was super excited and selected this Sawyer Watch. The watch came so fast -a few days to be exact- in this amazing wooden box and we were both blown away by the high quality, nice heavy weight, and the ability to wind it up instead of battery operated. The wooden band is so unique, easily adjusted at any jewelry store, and comes with a finishing oil to moisturize the band as needed over time. Set up was a breeze with instructions and he was ready to go!



The interior components are Citizen made in Japan and it’s pretty cool to flip the watch over and see internal workings on the back. The band is 100% natural wood crafted and made in the US. It keeps accurate time and super easy to see. The watch is water resistant but not waterproof so be sure to not submerge it while at the pool!
