OOTD: Puff Sleeve Sweater


Fall is here friends! We'll I've been in fall mode for a few weeks now. I'm from the Midwest sue me. Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. Fall fashion is my favorite, the leaves are changing, the scents are amazing, what's not to love? In today's post I'm sharing one of my new favorite fall sweaters from Rachel Parcell. 

This sweater is gorgeous! It is made from super soft yarn and is so comfy and cozy. Who doesn't love a turtle neck for fall? No one. I used to actually hate turtlenecks as a kid. I would yank on the neck because it was too tight. But, now I love them for fall and winter. Plus in Chicago you always need a bit of extra coverage when the wind kicks in. One of the best details of this sweater though is the puff shoulder detail. It has gorgeous pleating and makes for the perfect feminine touch. 

Layered over my sweater is a great lightweight wax Barbour jacket. Lightweight wax is actually a spring item but I love wearing it for early fall months. It is the perfect weight for outdoor fall activities when you are moving around. As you know Barbour is a go-to of mine for outerwear. Once fall hits it is officially Barbour jacket season for me!

Where it's from: 
Jeans: Paige 
Boots: LL Bean 
Headband: Lele Sadoughi (similar)
Jacket: Barbour (on sale!)
Sunglasses: Ray Ban 

Then of course had to finish the look with a Lele Sadoughi headband. This headband is one of my favorites for fall. It is such a unique color but matches so many of my fall pieces. Probably because I wear a lot of pink in fall but pink is a neutral people!

New Erin Condren Petite Planner

Erin Condren new product alert! I am loving the new Erin Condren Petite Planner + Folio system. This planner is the perfect option for anyone looking for a totally customizable set up. You start by picking your own on the go folio to hold your petite planners. There are a ton of gorgeous colors and make from incredibly soft faux leather. Then you can pick your own petite planners to fill your folio. Erin Condren was kind enough to gift me a few of their petite planners. 

They sent over the daily petite planner, wellness journal, and their budget book. The daily petite planner allows you to have three months at a time. This way you don't have to carry around a yearly planner, just three months at a time. Who doesn't want to lighten their load? With the daily planner you have one page per day to write out your schedule, to-do's, and more. Then the wellness journal helps you log and track any health goals. From tracking weight, workouts, and more this insert does it all. Then the last item they sent was the budget book. Which your girl probably needs! It helps you track expenses, spending, and bills all in your planner. If you are trying to budget your money better this is a great option. 

There are even more petite planners included in the collection such as a travel journal, monthly planner, or even a blank or dotted notebook. Tons and tons of options to customize your folio system. Like I said this is a great planner for anyone who wants to customize and change it out whenever you want. You simply insert the petite planners into the folio with the elastics included. Whenever you want to change it or rearrange it just take out the notebooks! It is super easy and allows you total customization. 

Another bonus of this planner is how compact it is. You can throw it in any tote bag, backpack, etc. for your on the go lifestyle. I think it would be great for any student, mom, or even for work. Include a blank notebook or dotted grid notebook in your folio for note taking on the go. Then mix in other inserts to make it 100% yours!

Fall Trend Alert: Cheetah Print

Cheetah print is one of my fall favorites! Right now I am seeing a ton of cheetah print which I am so on board with. I think cheetah is a great accent print to add a fun pop to any fall look. Whether it be a cheetah shoe, belt, or blouse there are a ton of ways to bring in a pop of cheetah. 

My favorite way to wear cheetah is through accessories. I love a cheetah ankle bootie or hair accessory. I own this great Lele Sadoughi cheetah headband and I think it is going to be adorable for fall! Pair with a plain black look or with any fall jewel tones. 

Ways to wear: 

  • Pair a cheetah blouse with black bottoms for a sleek look 
  • A cheetah tank with dark denim, ankle booties, and a leather jacket for a night out
  • A cheetah sweatshirt with faux leather leggings and chic sneakers for a casual look 
  • A maroon or jewel tone dress with a cheetah headband 
  • Pair a black tee and jeans with a cheetah belt for a pop of print 
  • Coordinate a cheetah scrunchie with a white tee and corduroy pants and riding boots for the perfect fall look
