It’s Friday Eve! Can I get an “amen”?!
We had a terrible storm last night. Our power actually went out sometime around 1:30am. The alarm and smoke detectors went off, which made Mindi freak out. This went on for a few of hours so yeah, Will and I felt like zombies this morning.

The past couple of weeks we have had a lot of rain and thunderstorms. With all the gloomy weather we have been experiencing all I’ve wanted to wear is comfortable and casual outfits. The slouchy tops by The Mint Julep Boutique that I mentioned last week here have been absolutely perfect for this. I’m wearing in this look the wine colored slouchy tunic that I mentioned before. It’s an incredibly comfortable basic top that could be dressed down even more by pairing it with leggings. The Mint Julep is offering my followers and readers an exclusive 50% off discount on all of their slouchy tops (yay!!). Shop them with your discount here or by going to the ‘outfit details’ link above.

The denim and booties I chose for this outfit are two items that have remained in my closet for awhile now. Citizens of Humanity makes my most favorite dark wash skinny jean called the ‘Avedon‘. Believe it or not I’ve had this pair since I was in college! They have withstood many, many seasons and all of my clumsy habits. Nicer quality apparel is an investment upfront, but in the long run it’s worth it when items hold up for years.
My booties from Lucky Brand were a pair I purchased over a year ago. They were my most favorite casual booties from last fall and winter. What I love most about them is how well the leather wore. They now feel super soft and have sort of a rugged look. The best price I can currently find on them is at Dillard’s here. I have them in the ‘toffee’ color but they come in several other color options as well.

I always love new suggestions for denim and boots. What are some of your favorites for the fall season?

    Love the necklace and booties! I just got some super cute black booties at Old Navy and I can’t wait to style them.
