Happy Monday, y’all!  Did you happen to notice anything different when you ventured over to Style & Sequins today? Of course you did!  My website went through some major changes over the weekend!  I decided it was time to bite the bullet and transfer to a different blog platform.  I knew it was going to such a headache, but I knew I just had to do it.  Of course, the stubborn part in me didn’t really want any help with it (besides my boyfriend’s), so I basically spent all weekend playing around with code (that I don’t really know much about), staying up late, and making all kinds of changes to get it to look how I want!  Everything still isn’t where I would like it to be yet, but it’s so much better than before!  Let me know what you think about the new look down below in the comments!

 Has anyone else been getting in the mood for fall lately?  With it being the first of August, I am definitely wishing for some cooler weather!  There’s just something about fall that puts me in a good mood, and I don’t think it’s entirely about the fact that college football starts – GO BUCKEYES! 😉 The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale totally had me wishing for fall, too!  I know a lot of their items are sold out by now, but there are still some great pieces left!  I’m going to share two of my favorite fall trends that are in stock and available for you to pick up right now!

Disclaimer:  I am completely aware that the weather here in Raleigh is at least 90 degrees everyday.  I can guarantee you that I do not wear fall outfits like this outside on a regular basis right now.  I really only last the amount of time it takes to get these pictures, then I am back in my tank and shorts!  Trust me, I’m not that crazy! 🙂

One of my favorite fall trends is plaid!  I just love the casual, laid back look you get when you wear it.  Not to mention it is ridiculously comfortable to wear, especially when you get those cozy flannels!  I’m not biased towards any specific color of plaid, but I will say that I have found myself being drawn to olive so much lately with my fall choices!  I’ve already purchased multiple tops in this same olive color, including the one I’m wearing in this post!  This plaid is oversized and comes in a few different colors.  This specific style I’m wearing has been hit or miss each day as far as being in stock or out of stock online.  However, I did find a super similar one here that is in stock as I am writing this post!  There are so many great options available right now at a discounted price!  I linked up some of my favorites below.

Another favorite fall trend of mine is boots!  That includes tall boots, booties, and over the knee boots!  Basically anything that I can get my hands on!  A recent fave of mine has been over the knee boots.  I bought this black pair last year, and it gives your outfits such a feminine look.  I always felt super confident while wearing them.  And the good news is that this black pair is on sale right now for $99.90 (reg. $149.95).

Now let’s talk about the OTK boots I’m wearing in the photos in this post.  After I bought my black pair last year, I knew I wanted a cognac pair as well.  However, I waiting too long and ended up not finding any that I liked.  As soon as I started browsing the Nsale, I noticed there were two different cognac colored OTK boots that were part of the sale.  I wanted to pull the trigger right away.  However, they were both a little too pricey for me.  I decided to wait.  And I’m SO happy I did. While browsing at Target the other day, I noticed this pair!  They are practically identical to the ones I saw that were part of the Nsale, and a fraction of the price at just under $50!  When I tried them on, I was surprised at how comfortable they were as well!  I decided to pull the trigger before I regretted it!  So, if you’re like me and are wanting a pair of OTK cognac colored boots, but don’t want to pay the price, then you have to check out this pair!  Don’t make the mistake I did last year and wait too long to buy them!  Some other pairs that I love are rounded up below!

I hope you are able to stock up on some fall essentials while they’re still available!  I know it’s early, but trust me, you won’t regret it!
