What I Wore Wednesday: Gameday Attire!

Hi friends!

I thought I would take advantage of the opportunity to share with The Pleated Poppy's What I Wore Wednesday link-up again. I seriously love looking through all the outfit ideas you can find over there from everyday people! So fun!

While we still have a tad of warm weather lingering and we're in the midst of football season I thought I would go ahead and share what I wore to our alma mater's football game a couple of weeks ago.

It's no secret that in the south we love our football, but we also like to look good while we watch football, so there's no lack of cuteness on Saturdays in the fall.

Forgive me for not having a posed full body shot of the outfit. The thought crossed my mind, but I didn't want to be modeling at the tailgate... That would just be awkward. Hopefully, having these two little cuties with me helps my apology.

Here's a pic of me standing up in the dress if that helps at all. I also happen to be standing with my handsome hubby. {Bonus!}

He works the teacup arm almost as well as I do. ;)

If you've never shopped at ModCloth you really need to check it out! They've got some super cute clothes at great prices, and even better, if you go through my link {} before October 2 you'll get $20 off your first $50 order and I'll get $20 for referring you! That = Awesome!!

Hope this gives you a little inspiration in your future game day wear! Now go check out The Pleated Poppy for more cute wardrobe ideas!

What I Wore Wednesday: Bold Color and Printed Shoes

Happy Wednesday friends! I hope you guys are having a rocking week so far!

There's this little link-up party in the land of blogs you may have heard of called "What I Wore Wednesday" hosted by the fabulous Pleated Poppy. Ok, actually, it's huge, and if you're not checking it out you're missing out on some great fashion inspiration! :)

I really love getting dressed up, but honestly never feel too confident about what I'm wearing because I'm either beating myself up about how I haven't lost enough weight yet or I think my clothes aren't nice enough, but on Sunday I threw together a little outfit that I was actually quite proud of, so I {sheepishly} asked my husband if he would be willing to snap some pictures of me before we left for church and he obliged.

I've seriously had the pants in the picture for almost a year now and could count on one hand how many times I've worn them. I've tried them on thousands of times, but usually don't have the confidence to walk out the door with them, more so because of the material they are than the color. They're a lot more stretchy than they are denim and I get scared it may be a not-so-good look from behind, but the sweater I wore helped alleviate most of that fear.

Hope you guys have a great rest of the week! Make sure you go check out all the great link-ups over at The Pleated Poppy!

Stop and Smell the Roses: Falling for Fall {Candles}

Stop and Smell the Roses 

 Happy Wednesday peeps!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend and got to do a little celebrating and/or relaxing. Despite what the thermometer says, fall is definitely on it's way, and in my {humble} opinion it can't come fast enough.

I am loving the return of football, my homemade wreath hanging on the front door, and the smell of yummy candles floating throughout our house. In my anticipation to get fall underway I thought I would share with you a couple of my favorite scents for fall candles.

Have you guys started preparing for fall yet? If so, what's your favorite thing about the season?

Hope you all have a great week!

{P.S. Check out all the other Stop and Smell the Roses vlogs at!}

Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is here, which yes, is a day to celebrate the working man, but for me also represents the beginning of fall! I don't know about you guys, but I am so ready for the crisp autumn air, football, creamy pumpkin candles, and boots... Oh, how I've missed wearing my boots!

We started the weekend by watching our Vols kick off the football season with a fabulous win over NC State on Friday evening. Of course, the one Friday night we actually wanted to watch TV Hurricane Isaac kept knocking the satellite out, but we watched most the game none-the-less. Watching the game made me absolutely giddy about making it down to Neyland Stadium in a couple of weeks!

We also had family in town this weekend and decided to do a little shopping on Saturday. I love getting my candles from Bath and Body Works and they were on sale this weekend. I couldn't wait to get those home and lit to get the smell of fall in our home. I also pulled out my homemade wreath, re-glued some parts that had come apart while it was stored away, and got it up on the door.

I never thought I would be so excited about the changing of seasons, especially because as long as I can remember summer has always been my favorite, but the older I get the more I appreciate fall and everything that comes along with it. Taking a run in the hot and humid air this morning was just one more reminder that fall can't some soon enough.

Hope you guys have had a great weekend enjoying the end of summer and taking an extra day to relax!

Happy Labor Day!!

{Anyone else as excited for fall as I am?!} :)
