Happy Monday friends! I hope that your weekends were filled with lots of spooky things. We admittedly did nothing this month for Halloween because we were away at Disney and then Chis had an army drill weekend, leaving us with not a ton of time to be festive. I know, whomp, whomp. So we did our best to squeeze some fun in yesterday, our only free day (so check all the fun out over on Instagram!) and then back to our Monday routine. If you missed last week’s style post, I chatted about styling my new favorite white dress and denim jacket and this week it’s all about a big fall trend: embellished sleeves.

First things first, I got this great silk shirt from TJMAXX (c/o) and it’s one of my favorite things hanging in my closet right now. My parents gifted me this Kate Spade wallet for my birthday and I’m loving all the fun colors. TJMAXX is one of my absolute favorite places to shop because they always have great value and amazing prices. They are highlighting some pretty big trends this season and I’m incorporating two of them into this look:

So when I’m yearning to dress up a little bit these days, which is often because I get sick of my frumpy bus stop pick-up outfits really quick – this is something that I turn to. These velvet leggings are from my friends at No Nonsense and they are so comfortable and fun to wear this season!

My biggest takeaway for when styling embellished sleeve or frills is to focus on balance within your whole outfit. If your sleeves are big or really embellished, you want to make sure whatever you’re wearing on the bottom isn’t. It also helps you appear slimmer and keep your dressing for your body shape rules in line. 

And my motto with earrings lately is go big or go home! I saw these Egyptian Fringe Earrings online from TJMAXX and couldn’t resist! They literally go with everything. I’ve worn them with pink, white, you name it and they really help my whole outfit pop.

Here’s a closer look, and they aren’t heavy at all – promise!

So, how are all of you taking your mom style up a notch this week? Would love to hear what your favorite fall trend is!

Fashionably Yours,



  1. That blue is gorgeous color on you! Great tips about balancing the tops and bottoms 😀

  2. I didn’t know they had all that great pink velvet at Tj! I am going to stock up now while I can and pink is instyle.

      They have so many fun things! I tend to shop their online store because the stores here in the city get a little too crowded, but I bet you can find something fun!

  3. That teal blouse is perfection. You’ve done some smart shopping.
