Outfits to transition into fall

Outfits to transition into fall

Temperatures slowly dropping, leafs starting to change color... FALL!!! With the fall season quickly approaching but the weather only slowly starting to change I thought I would put together 3 different looks that are great for that transition into fall.

I lovee a good pair of booties…

I wanted it to feel more intimate and I also honestly just love the look of dining room and what it represents. My Dining Room Reveal! When creating the dining room, I always knew…

But in…
