I'm always living for all things fall...this has been established. LOL. But, what I'm really living for is statement coats and cardis. Throwing a wild piece like this sweater over a dress or top can give you that extra edge to make you feel like you outfit is complete! Now, I've avoided tassel earrings for a while and contemplated saving these for another look, but then I thought "why not?". All the textures and colors happening here make me feel so "fashion week" and that's never a bad feeling!
This week it's finally cooling down in Georgia and I know I'm not the only one screaming "hallelujah!" Having had my fall wardrobe ready for its close up for quite sometime, it's so exciting to finally be able
to pull out some of my fav new pieces and share them with you. I've been working with Molly Green, a boutique with locations in Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia, of course. All of this look is from Molly Green with the exception of these boots which I've linked the new and improved version of. I did my best to link dupes of each piece in this look. If you come across any better ones, DM me and I'll update the post!
Bodysuit / Shorts / Boots / Hat
For those not so chilly days in October, you've got to create the fall vibe somehow. In doing so, you also want to keep cool if you live somewhere like Atlanta where fall isn't a season but rather a day or two. LOL. This long sleeve bodysuit from my fav new boutique, Molly Green, has been a staple so far this fall. A piece like this is so easily transformed from casual to dressy, and the off the shoulder style is so trendy. Speaking of trendy, I've gotta praise these white boots for a minute. I'm in love with these as they contradict every fashion rule we were taught growing up. Anything that stands out like that is more than welcome in my closet!
If you haven't seen the white boot trend flooding your Instagram and Pinterest accounts then allow me to be the first to tell you, it's a thing! I honestly couldn't be happier about it. The "never wear white after Labor Day" rule is something I have never been able to tolerate. I'm pretty sure I've written about this for 3 years straight. There's a way to rock your white staples after Labor Day, and here's one way to do it. If it's shoes, boots (in my opinion) are the way to rock white in fall.
After almost splurging on a pair of white Freebird boots, I stumbled upon these at none other than TJ Maxx! Man, that place always comes in clutch for me and my bank account. Sort of. I mean, I spend an unhealthy amount of money on candles there, but I don't spend anywhere near the amount of money on shoes as I would shopping online (i.e. The Freebird boots). For this look I wanted to accessorize with the latest trends while keeping the top and bottom super casual and relaxed. I love these cabby hats. They are so fab with a sweater for fall and.... Oh wait. You said what? You think you can't pull it off? Ah, hush up! You sure can! Lastly, I'm loving this Tommy Sweatshirt. It's super cozy and if I'm not wearing it around the house I love the option of this outfit for dinner with friends!
That is all for this one! Thanks so much for reading, and hopefully I'll see you over on Instagram!
Transition weather can be hit and miss here in Atlanta. That's why I love pieces that I can wear and feel comfortable in when it's 60 degrees and when it's 80 degrees. Chambray is such a light and airy fabric so it's ideal for transitioning from summer to fall. With the addition of a flannel or leather jacket, this ensemble is ready to take you into October!
I'm never sure if it's going to stay, but I can assure you I won't be taking one second of this fall weather for granted here in Atlanta! I have a "uniform" for every season and my fall uniform is no doubt an oversized sweater, jeans, and boots! If you're the same then you'll want to check out The Mint Julep Boutique. Their new fall arrivals are top notch and you have the opportunity to get $10 off your first order by signing up for email notifications from Mint Julep!

Getting super girly on ya'll this week with a floral jumper dress I have fallen in LOVE with. Sorry, Jonathan. LOL. We see cute sun dresses and flowy floral minis every summer. I have been looking for a flirty little piece like this, but with a twist. I feel like I nailed it this time. Just like the linen overalls, I can pair this with a variety of tops and get way more wear out of it. Also, who struggles with heels? I mean 2005-20010 Victoria used to stomp up and down the hallways of the school in a pair of heels every. single. day. No wonder I hate them now. I love how trendy it is to rock sneaks with a dress these days. It is a dream come true that the only shoes I need to pack when traveling are Converse.
What is your favorite type of shoe? Let me know on Instagram and tell me you came from the blog!

In, my world, you can't beat a good pair of overalls. I live for anything effortless and versatile, and this linen number takes the cake. You better be prepared to hear me yap on about Urban Outfitters for the next few weeks because I've gone crazy over what they have in store right now.
Living in Georgia is a struggle in the summer so I look for pieces like this that aren't too constricting or that don't have too many parts. LOL. It is just too hot for all of that! Maybe not for some, but a pair of overalls/a jumpsuit is a staple in my closet. I has longevity and I can mix it up with the shoes and tops I pair with it to make it a "new" look every time.

Mermaid Hair Shine Spray
I'm always down for beachy waves! It's my go-to hair style and has been for over a year. I've always envied stars like Shay Mitchell for their perfect hair. I finally discovered the perfect product and method to styling my hair. I began leaving the ends of my hair straight while curling the upper half. I follow that by completely brushing it out and spraying in my Mermaid Shine Spray! After shaking out my hair there's not even a need to use any hair spray. The shine spray is a form a sea salt spray that gives my hair texture, which is perfect for leaving it down or styling it into a high pony. I love the volume this styling process gives, and it's so quick and simple. After getting several questions about my hair this summer I wanted to share my routine! I hope this helps you accomplish those trendy beach waves we all love!

Striped Cropped Sweater / Purple Mini Skirt / Sunnies
Urban Outfitters still hasn't let me down! If you didn't glance at this skirt and instantly think: "Zetus Lapetus, Margie" then idk you. At this current moment I have every Zenon: Girl of theTwenty-first Century movie on my DVR. You guys know I love a good throwback and live for pieces reminiscent of my childhood. So, you better believe I jumped when I saw this skirt. Now, if anyone has a cool event they want to invite me to so I can wear it, then holla! LOL.
Also, want to shout out DIFF Eyewear for these sweet Ruby shades! I love the gradient lenses, and every time I wear them I smile knowing that for every pair sold, DIFF donates a pair of glasses to someone in need. To get your own pair of Ruby's or any off fabulous style, use code: VICLINDSEY for 25% off!

I live for the classic "Jen Anniston - jeans and a white tee" look! So when I came across this cropped pullover I was SOLD. Something I love about this in particular is the fact that it is reminiscent of the 90s. Since I was a small child in the 90s and not quite a teen, I always admired the older girls and what they'd wear. Even though I wasn't old enough to rock some of the looks I loved, I I'm not complaining! I mean I modeled every outfit I wore from what I saw on Lizzie McGuire and MK & A movies. By the way isn't Hilary Duff just... Okay, I'll stop. Saving the Hilary rants for my Instagram Story. Since I own basically no oversized tee shirts (I'm funny) I had to have this bell-sleeve wonder! Ya'll know I love a big shirt, and this is my jam. Looking forward to transitioning this basic into fall! Lastly, why does Jennifer Aniston look so chic in a white T-shirt and blue jeans?

Did anyone else's mom get super extra when it came to back-to-school shopping? Well, mine did, and I wasn't ever mad at it. I remember this one plaid skirt from... you guessed it... Abercrombie. It was so unique and I knew someone at school would laugh at me for wearing it because it was pretty out of the norm for New Albany Middle School. We bought it anyway. I loved that stinkin' skirt! And, just like that I'm 24 and trying to dress like my middle school self. LOL. But, really, this jacket gives me such nostalgic vibes. I really love a piece of clothing that makes me 1. smile. 2. feel C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-T (in my Fifth Harmony voice). I'm loving all of what Urban Outfitters is bringing right now. This time of year I love the back-to-school feel, but of course, without going to school. UO is bringing all of it, and I am living for it!
Head over to my Instagram and let me know what your favorite thing about back-to-school is/was?
Finally found the perfect pair distressed white jeans! Can you believe it? I've found a couple pair this year that I liked, but none that I LOVED. The raw hem on these babies really sold me. I basically don't own a pair of denim that isn't ripped in some way because I'm just not that fancy. Madewell kills it when I comes to every detail I look into when trying on jeans - rise, stretch, quality, and the more rips the better. LOL. One thing to keep in mind with Madewell jeans in particular is that they will stretch. I went back and forth trying on two different sizes and eventually went with the smaller one. I'm glad I did because they definitely loosened up a bit after wearing them several times!
What is your favorite denim brand? Let me know on Instagram! I've been doing a lot more Insta Stories lately so come say hi!

Do you ever put on an outfit and feel like a total boss? This is definitely one of those for me! I have been obsessed with gingham this summer, and how it can be perfect for any occasion. I love the look of this one with both a casual slide as well as with a dressier sandal. To be honest, I probably would've gasped at the sight of someone wearing Nike slides and gingham capris in middle school... LOL. But, not anymore. Mixing the lux with the sporty is a vibe I'm totally, well, "vibing"? (Am I cool yet?) If you tend to be fearful of going outside of the "safe" zone in regard to you wardrobe I cannot encourage you enough to GO FOR IT. It blows my mind how much I used to care about what my peers thought of my outfits. I mean after all, they are just that. MY outfits. Wear what makes you feel good. Unless, it's that red situation Pharrell's wife wore to the Met Gala. I'm pretty sure that was a fire hydrant #noshade.
