I love the holidays; all of them. This time of year feels so magical and full of possibility. I think that everyone should have a sense of childlike wonder about the holidays. However, one of the things that really stresses me out about the holidays is decorations. I want to be one of those people that transforms their home into a spring dream or a winter wonderland. But I’m a girl who *tries* to stick to a budget and who lives in an apartment that I know I’m going to move out of in the next year or two. None of that is really cohesive with *that* person. BUT I do like to add some seasonal flair to my apartment and I am working on adding some more adult touches to my home.
However, I feel like this is an in between time where I want to celebrate fall and Christmas all at once. So, can you celebrate both at the same time? …I’m asking for a friend?

Happy decorating, lovelies!
The other night I went out to dinner for my Brunswick bestie’s birthday. It was a small little dinner with a few friends and significant others. I wanted to pull together a look that was “fall-y” since we were finally having some cooler weather.
So I pulled out a pair of jeans that I don’t think I’ve worn in probably 6 months. I truthfully don’t know how to feel when I tell you that they were uncomfortable to be in or to look at myself in. I could zip them but there was a significant amount on “muffin top” going on. These amazing teal corduroy bell bottoms were the only long pants in my closet that would fit me.
As some one who has struggled with an eating disorder this is almost something to be proud of. However, I’m not proud. I’m annoyed that it means that I’ve been slacking off going to the gym even though it’s something that makes me happy. I know that it means that I need to add more veggies to my weekend diet and drinking less the whole week.
So as I write this I am wearing gym clothes because I did a 30 minute treadmill interval workout, I had a salad for lunch and chicken noodle soup for dinner. I’m making my way back to balance as opposed to leaning heavily into restriction or indulgence.
The first outfit I put together was not exactly suited for 70 degree weather so get ready to see that later on this year but I did up putting together a fall-friendly outfit that still made me over dressed for my BFF’s birthday dinner (and I didn’t care one bit!).
When the boyfriend says he wants to go to dinner and you know exactly what you want to wear, that’s a darn good night!
I’ve been so excited about this outfit since I bought this t-shirt. Also, this t-shirt and this overall dress are $20 combined!!
Leopard shirt: $8
Overall dress: $20
Happy Shopping lovelies!
When I asked y’all on Instagram stories what you wanted to see, several of you said outfits with booties. GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!! I wore this to have dinner at JT’s work and he got told to “wife me up” by one of his co-workers so there you go lol.
All seriousness, I love a good t-shirt dress and this one is sooo soft with such a cute little detail on the front. A flannel shirt around the waist would also look super good instead of the chambray shirt I went with today. This outfit is also great when it’s officially fall but still 80 degrees here in south GA.
All of these items are old stand-bys for me so I linked some things that are similar at different price points!

I think this shirt is so freaking cute. I’ve been looking for a female empowerment shirt for what feels like forever and I love this one from ROX Jewelry Shop! And it’s only $20 when you use code “KimS15”! They also have a bunch of other really cute tees, mugs and of course jewelry!
I’m not going to lie to y’all right now… I lowkey hate this outfit.
I put this together and I was LOVING it. It was so cute and fall-y and I was excited.
I took one look at the pictures and all I could think was that I looked like I was going to a football game to root on the University of Alabama or Mississippi State University. My little Auburn-loving heart cried 😢.
But out of my love for all of you on the Internet I thought I owed you the service to show you this totally cute potential game day outfit.
😂😂 In all seriousness, I do love this outfit and will absolutely be wearing it again (just not on a Saturday in the fall 😂)
Tee: Target – $8
Overall Dress: Amazon – $15 (also comes in 17 other colors)
Earrings: Bauble Bar – $26

Thanks for reading, lovelies!!
As a shorter person, I wear a lot of mini skirts year round to help my tiny legs look longer. To make them more “seasonally appropriate”, I change up the rest of the outfit. I thought I’d show y’all how I style this geometric mini skirt for summer and a couple easy changes to make it fall (or winter in the South haha) appropriate.
So here is the basic outfit. It can be fancied up with heels or a different top but this is an easy brunch or hanging out look that I wear often in the summer. Below I’ve linked some similar items in this picture!
Tank: Nordstrom Rack – $10
Printed Skirts: Nordstrom Rack – $20
Vici Collection – $38
Hope’s – $36
SheIn – $17
This is the next iteration as the seasons begin to change. Again, this is an easy brunch, dinner, birthday party, what have you look.
Jean Jacket: Nordstrom – $99
Last, but certainly not least (and kinda my fave look). I love this duster and I think it’s fairly unexpected with a mini skirt but can add some warmth to a mini skirt outfit when the weather gets a little bit chilly.
Black Duster: Nordstrom Rack – $110
Nordstrom Rack – $27
How do y’all transition your summery clothes into fall?
