STYLE STORY: FALL IKAT + $300 KATE SPADE GIVEAWAY


I have officially fallen in love with Fall all over again! Probably because we actually have had Fall weather longer than a day this year. But also because I spent this past weekend in New Jersey and it was Fall perfection! I think my favorite part is being surrounded by a glorious landscape of trees dressed in a red, orange & yellow color palette while driving on the highway. It's magical!

Most couples who have gotten married this season have been so lucky weather-wise. I went to a wedding for a dear childhood friend a couple weeks ago & it was so perfect for an outdoor wedding!

For this wedding, I opted for a black & white Cynthia Rowley ikat printed maxi dress that I score for a sweet deal at T.J.Maxx a couple years ago. I felt it needed some extra color so I added a bold statement necklace. If it was chillier out, I would've added a light cardigan like this J.Crew one that's a staple in my own closet (I have it in 3 colors!). The reception location was amazing & made the perfect backdrop to capture this look.

Before I go on, I am SO excited to be co-hosting another giveaway!! Some awesome blogger friends and I are giving away a $300 Kate Spade gift card to one very very lucky reader!! AMAZING! Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter!









We watched the majestic sunset throughout the reception! Breathtaking!

Remember to put on Love today. Need some ideas? I've found that helping others find joy in the ordinary or in difficult moments is a great way to show love. And when you don't always have the right words to say in those difficult times, just being there for others is sometimes just what they need. Or perhaps a simple smile is all one needs to feel loved. Have a great weekend!
