When all you have is Target….

I get it! Life is busy and there seems to be very little time to focus on your upcoming fall wardrobe. I mean, seriously….school is about to begin, the kids have to look Properly Stylish, the ease of summer is going away and the hustle of a strict routine is creeping in. Yoga pants, a t-shirt and a messy bun may be all you can muster.  The struggle is real! But, I can help you pull together a great fall wardrobe. The best part of all….you don’t have to run to a mall or boutique. We are going to shop where you are already shopping for your kids school supplies and grabbing a few things for dinner….Target!

Let’s chat the “No Fuss” staple, the t-shirt. A comfy t-shirt paired with skinny jeans can be easily dressed up or down. I love this cutie from Target! Metallics are always included in the top Fall/Winter fashion trends and this one is worth every bit of the $14.99 you will spend on it! You can dress it up or down with jeans, dressier pants, a pencil skirt or full skirt. The possibilities are endless.

Here’s another comfy and sleek t-shirt in a dusty rose. It looks high end but without the the high end price tag. It’s a knit jersey blend which is great for these southern seasons where it really doesn’t start to cool off until late October. Allow it to stand alone with great statement jewelry or add a timeless jean or leather jacket.

Speaking of a great jacket….look at these beauties! They are faux leather and will run you about $39.99. You can wear with jeans and a t-shirt or over a maxi dress. You can snag the black one here and the tan here.

The top designers have spoken and both Power RED and LACE are huge trends for fall 2017. How much do you love this Who What Wear Red lace tee? For the love of lace and snake print! I love this!! That skirt is amazing. It’s sweetness with a bit of edge.

I love a great romper and this one has so many great details. It’s modern, sleek and just the right amount of sass. The top portion is blouse like and the ruching on the leg is a great added detail. The pant suit seems to always make the fashion trends list. You can add a suit jacket to this romper and be on trend. Add these block heeled sandals  and you are set! I have those sandals in Robins Egg Blue and I adore them! This outfit will definitely be in my closet!

Ankle boots and mules are IN! These are a few of my favorites! Can we talk about the faux Pony Hair Mules??? I love them. I’m having a flash back to the 90’s.

So many floral prints flooded the runways. I love this little wrap dress paired with olive booties!! Wrap dresses are perfect for every body shape!

The Adult Woman’s TuTu….

 

There is something about a tulle skirt that gets me so excited! Maybe it’s the little girl in me!   Tulle skirts are so whimsical…..and they are not just for child’s play and dress up anymore!

I am going to show you how to work your tulle skirt….with the Proper Style!

Keep it classy and sophisticated by pairing the tulle skirt with a vintage inspired blouse and blazer. This look is perfect for lunch with the girls!

One of my favorite pairings….the tulle skirt and sweater! Comfy on top and sassy on the bottom! This look screams high fashion without looking forced. Add a little pizazz with amazing shoes!

You can also pair a tulle skirt with a great button-up to add a touch of sophistication!

This look is for my edgy ladies out there. Bring up the hem line, add a funky belt, distressed t-shirt and wedged rocker booties! Perfect for a night out on the town!

See how easy it is to bring a childhood favorite into your adulthood?

Simple, classy and OH, SO PROPERLY STYLISH!

B. Blessed!

Falling for Boots!

It’s college football season and there are a number of things true about college football fans: Southern Belles are real sweet until college football season comes along, college football is a major religion, you should never get married during college football season, and only in the South is college football season an excuse to dress up! All of these are true, especially the last one. There’s nothing like a little school spirit to kick up your game day ensemble!

As much as we love summer, we’re willing to welcome fall back into our lives for two reasons: Fabulous Fall Boots and College Football!

Boots are a great way to look amazing and stay comfortable from tailgating to over-time! With so many different styles trending for the fall, there’s a boot out there for everyone! Where do you find great boots at a great price? I have scoured the internet for Fall’s Best Boots Under $100!

1. The Equestrian Riding Boot is a must have for this fall! The Madden Girl LUNDUNN knee high boot is a perfect addition to any outfit. Priced at $77 on Zooshoo.com, it’s a perfect for your fall collection!                      http://www.zooshoo.com/product_p/lundunnbrown.htm

2. The Cowboy Boot is one of the most popular trends on game day. The Sanguine, another great design by Steve Madden from his line Madden Girl can be found on Zappos.com. Pair this boot with a feminine dress or skinny jeans.

3. The BP ‘Trolley’ Ankle boot is one of my favorite styles. It pairs perfectly with jeans! Get it at Nordstrom.com for $99.95

4. The Wedge Lace-Up Bootie from Colin Stuart will instantly elevate your style this season! Front laces, buckles, and a sky high wedge heel will add a little edge to any ensemble. At $89 this shoe is a steal from Victoriassecret.com.

5. Sole Society ‘Josslyn’ Platform Bootie is an amazing find at Nordstrom.com for $59! This platform bootie propped up with a chunky heel adds style and sophistication to those skinny jeans.

For all of you Georgia Bulldog Fans!!

This is one of my favorite looks taking college football season by storm! Pair your favorite dress and leather jacket with cowboy boots. Cowboy boots give a polished look to jeans and a more down-to-earth feel to dresses! This look will have you looking amazing and while staying comfy.

You can’t go wrong with skinny jeans, a comfy shirt, edgy boots and sexy curls!

A new pair of trendy boots is the best way to celebrate fall and college football! Every woman should have a pair…..or two, or three! 🙂 Get out there and find the perfect boot to fit your style!

Put the Proper Style in Everything You Do!

B. Blessed!
