Not Quite Ready to Say Goodbye to Summer

Hi friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  While the weather here in Charlotte was close to perfection, I constantly stop to think of those who are facing the devastation of Irma.  I can’t even begin to understand what families are dealing with as Irma literally destroys their lives; my heart just breaks.  I continue to pray for everyone’s safety over the coming days, weeks and months as I know recovery will not happen quickly.

While I love fall and all of the layers, I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to tank tops and flip flops.  For some reason, I’m wanting to hold onto warmer temps for a bit longer this year. Every time I go into my closet I reach for my white or blush jeans and then quickly remind myself we are almost half way through September.  As I was getting dressed for a gathering yesterday, I opted to wear my blush jeans, this beautiful black lace top and my denim jacket; I think I can absolutely get away with this during fall.

While my exact outfit is no longer available, I’ve linked some cute lace tops for you below.  You can shop by clicking on icon.

By the way, this is another Stitch Fix outfit…so cute, right?  Cannott wait to get my first fall box in October!

Chambray for Casual Looks

 

Since we began our blog a few years ago, many things have changed…the quality of our images (thank goodness), our site’s design, the length of our hair and, most importantly, the passion we put into each post.  One thing that hasn’t change over the last several years?  Our mutually shared obsession with chambray.  In fact, when we first started working on Baubles & Backdrops we featured a series entitled, “A Chambray Look Every Day”.  Here’s a flashback to two of our looks we featured…


We remember feeling so awkward in front of the camera back then.  Let’s be honest, neither of us is truly comfortable in front of the camera now so we usually try to just talk and catch up whenever we shoot.  It helps take our mind out of the moment and minimizes how funny we can feel standing on a busy street in front of the camera.

Okay, back to the topic at hand…chambray.  We still wear chambray all the time.  Our favorite way to wear chambray has remained the same.  A simple button-down chambray top still proves irresistible to us.  Because we are thinking about new pieces to help us transition to fall, we wanted to share our current favorite chambray button-downs with you all!

Pretty Peplum

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you all are having a great week.  I drove down to Charlotte last night and will be working from here the rest of the week before heading to the beach with the family on Saturday.  My goal is to see as many houses as possible during my downtime…say a little prayer we find something we love!

I’m sure you’ve seen this peplum a thousand times by now, but I couldn’t resist sharing this look with you.  I wore this to the Kendra Scott party we co-hosted on Friday and absolutely love how the blue popped off my white jeans. I mean I would wear white jeans year round – I love them that much!   I ordered this top months ago, but because so many people purchased, it was on back order.  I finally got it a few weeks ago and let me tell you that it was worth the wait.  I’m actually going to purchase in other colors.

You can shop my look and similar items below.

Have a great day!

xoxo,
