Outfit Details: Plaid Coat - Bernardo Outerwear // Sweater -  (old) but similar here // Jeans - FRAME // Boots - Sam Edelman (old) but I like these here // Earrings - (vintage) but similar here // Sunglasses - Kate Spade // Purse - Ted Baker (old) but I like this one too // Lipstick - Laura Mercier

Hey loves! Today I am sharing with you this precious outfit  I put together and wore this weekend for my grandaddy's birthday brunch! He turned 82 on Sunday and we were so excited to spend the day celebrating him with family! It was such a gorgeous day, which have been so few and far between here in Alabama lately, that of course I had to take some pics! Plus this outfit was just too cute not to share!

I wore my adorable pink and tan plaid wool coat from Bernardo Outerwear (seriously, is this not the cutest coat you've seen this season?! - LOVE anything plaid!) with a pink cashmere sweater, white jeans, and my Sam Edelman knee-high suede boots! I just loved the way these pieces all went together and complimented each other perfectly!

For accessories, I wore a pair of my vintage pearl studs (oversized, of course), my Kate Spade sunglasses, and my pink Ted Baker purse.I felt like a modern day Jackie-O and I LOVED it!!  

Side Note: It was FREEZING the day I took these pictures and I was afraid this jacket might not be warm enough (but obviously, I wanted to wear it anyway because it was cute) - I was SO WRONG!!! This coat kept me so warm and blocked all the wind! I definitely put it through the test this weekend and it does its job of being stylish and keeping me warm! Definitely a winner in my book! BONUS: Nordstrom has this coat on MAJOR SALE right now!! I'm talking 40% off! Grab it while you can!

XOXO,

Erin

 

 

Lovely in Leather

It is still so cold here in Alabama and the temps are expected to keep dropping for the next few days so it looks like I won't be packing up my winter clothes just yet! I am crazy about this sweater from Ruche! It has a hint of sparkle in it so it adds some glam to any look! I paired it with my black cotton pants from target that you guys have to go get because they are seriously so comfy!! I know you have all seen me wear these Ariat boots before and there is a reason why!! They are the perfect boots for pants and/or skirt! They have the perfect heel height and I can wear them all day because they are so comfortable! Ariat makes the best boots...just saying! Growing up I used to never want a leather jacket. I just thought they felt so strange and had weird zips and just looked odd looking in general but now that I have this one from Spiegel, I LOVE them! This is a well made jacket with a feminine flare that I just can't get enough of! It also keeps me really warm as I am out and about! It can be worn for a more dressed up look or just casual as I have it here! It is extremely good quality leather and is a closet staple of mine for sure!!

 

Y'all, I can't get enough of these Ariat boots!! Perfect heel hight and I love that I can wear them all day!

Sheet tents and Twinkle lights

Happy Monday loves!! I just had to share with you guys what David and I did this past weekend! We LOVE to go camping and had been planning on going camping somewhere this weekend but we haven't been feeling too great and figured it would be better if we stayed close to home this weekend instead. So...I have been looking at camping or "glamping" (glamorous camping) ideas on pinterest lately and decided to give it a try! At my parents' house we have an old pole barn that I have been cleaning out and fixing up for a while now and decided it would be the perfect place to "glamp!" Turns out I was right! The weather was absolutely perfect  and we had a blast taking a vacation, or should I say "staycation," in the backyard! I had so much fun putting all of this together (with David's help of course)  and decorating with old linens from my mom's linen closet. Cuddling up in old quilts is the best! Anyway we had so much fun and I just wanted to share a bit of our weekend with you all! Please subscribe to stay up to date with the latest adventures we take on and message me/comment below if you have ever been glamping or are thinking about trying it out!! 

My outfit was perfect for a comfy weekend of camping and was so stylish and comfortable I want to wear this outfit everyday!! I have always loved Free People clothes and these pieces are staples in my wardrobe! These cozy thermal knits keep me warm and they are so so soft!! Also, how adorable is this shredded slip?! I just can't get enough!!! I have linked the items below for anyone interested in shopping this outfit!! You won't be disappointed! Hope you all have a great week! Oh, and who will be watching the bachelor tonight?!! Ever since my sister nominated me to be on this season (it was over a year ago and way before David and I had NO idea she really went through with it, we just always joked about nominating each other and NO i did not go to the casting call) but I have been keeping up with it just to see if I could ever see myself being on there vying for Chris' attention. (For those who are wondering I absolutely can NOT see myself being on the show with all of these other girls, I kind feel bad for Chris because the girls this season are crazy! Not all but a good majority of them are! For those of you who watch the show, who do you want Chris to end up with?!! 

I am still swooning over how dreamy this little tent we made was!

David made fun of me for making a grass/weed bouquet but it was seriously really pretty all put together!

This shredded slip from free people is seriously the best thing! I can't wait to pair it with other sweaters and tops.

I adore these leather booties of mine and I wear them religiously!! These are sold out but I have found some similar ones that I am also loving!!

How cute is this picture David took of Patton?!! I LOVE his sweet smile!

There is just something so magical about tents made from old sheets and lights strung throughout!
