Oh thank goodness it’s finally FRIDAY! So you all know that I’ve been talking a lot about fall transitional pieces (such as HERE and HERE). I want to continue that convo today by looking at classic fall pieces and why having a capsule collection is important. A capsule wardrobe just means that you have a select number of pieces in your wardrobe that are must-haves. These are items that you can mix and match and that never go out of style. These pieces should be really basic so that they are more versatile. I typically buy designer for my capsule wardrobe so that I know I have pieces that are high quality and will last for years. But just in case you are on a budget, I have included items at a variety of price points. Let’s take a more detailed look below at the styles you must have to create your perfect fall capsule wardrobe. If you’re not quite ready to buy items like coats, I recommend bookmarking this page for a later reference. Also, right now is the LTK FALL SALE. This is an in-app exclusive sale, so be sure and follow me on the app to take advantage of these incredible deals!

Detailed below are some of my personal favorite dresses, plus I have a variety of dresses in various styles and price points in the boutique at the bottom of the page.

Is it just me or have you felt the weather to be fall(ish) recently? Between grocery stores being filled with pumpkins, pumpkin spice items and the slow drop in temperatures, it gets me inspired to decorate for fall. This is why today I’m sharing some fall home decor inspiration. Let’s look at pieces you can add to your home for fall, including items for Halloween and Thanksgiving. These pieces are tasteful and don’t detract from your usual home decor. I know some people who love decorating for each individual holiday and others who like to decorate for the season as a whole. What do you do? I love to decorate for fall and then add some touches for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Right after that, I do major decorating for the Christmas holiday season. But overall I operate by the “one holiday at a time” rule.
EEK! We’re only two and a half weeks away form the 2023 State Fair of Texas! I LOVE to go to the state fair each year and look forward to the food, exhibitions, animals and variety of entertainment. We’ve been going for over 30 years! Tickets can be purchased HERE. The 2023 fair theme is “EXPLORE THE MIDWAY,” which is the perfect theme to celebrate the fair fun each fall at the iconic Midway. Over the years I’ve learned a few tips and tricks to easily navigate the State Fair of Texas so I thought I would share them today.
We just got back from a fabulous family vacation in Cabo San Lucas over Labor Day weekend. We planned this trip to celebrate our daughter turning 30. It’s an easy, non-stop flight and with wonderful resort and restaurant options.

We all know that a white blouse is an absolute wardrobe staple to have year round. Every woman should have one in her closet. It is so easy to go from casual to dressy, from a work look to a weekend look, and everything in between. Today I combined the ever-classic white blouse with other staple wardrobe pieces to create a chic and versatile look. I gave you options to style this look at a higher price point versus a lower, more affordable price point. That way you can splurge and save wherever it works best for your budget.

Pete and I recently did a little staycation just north of Dallas at the Omni PGA Frisco Resort. Even though we don’t play golf, there is plenty to do at this fabulous resort. Even though its not far away, you almost feel like you are in the Texas hill country. The resort features 500 beautiful guest rooms and suites and 10 exclusive ranch houses. Want to golf? They’ve got you covered at Fields Ranch – two 18-hole championship courses designed by acclaimed golf course architects Gil Hanse and Beau Welling. Practice on a 2-acre putting course, continue after dark at The Swing, a lighted 10-hole, par-3 short course, and find more fun off the fairway at the Monument Realty PGA District nearby.Need more to do? There are four onsite pools, including an adults-only rooftop infinity pool on the 6th floor, rejuvenating treatments at Mokara Spa and endless options at 13 dining destinations. While we enjoyed it as a staycation weekend for adults, it’s certainly family friendly with plenty to do.

You may be seeing a lot of buzz about green powders recently. The beauty of green powders is that you receive a days worth of fruits and veggies without the hassle of cooking or keeping track of the nutrients you’re receiving. It’s a great way to get all of your daily vitamins and nutrients, especially if you have a busy lifestyle. It’s so easy to drink on the go and is amazing for traveling. The only problem is that most of them do not taste great and are very chalky. Well, I have tried several brands and have found that BetterDays is the sure winner. Their products not only taste great, but are so easy to blend. I drink it daily.
