Today was such a beautiful fall day. The fallen leaves carpeted the ground with rich gold and burnt orange tones, sweeping the streets delicately as the wind blew. The perfect back drop for this ruffled wrap maxi dress by Ralph Lauren. Romantic florals and a flowing wrap silhouette make this cotton gauze dress a chic style. Its ruffled hem adds a flirty flair. The wrap silhouette secures with a tie at the front left side, I found it to fit true to size and very comfortable. If you have a larger bust I would recommend going up a size, this will secure your ladies in tightly so there are no surprise appearances.  This delicate beauty is 100% cotton and fully lined, I love the fact that when you walk the wrap does not blow apart and keeps you modest.

This leather jacket has been on repeat lately. There always seems to be one piece that I wear over and over each season, for fall it has been this amazing jacket from Joe Fresh. Read more about it here.

These boots by Stuart Weitzman are to die for.  I have had them on my wish list for a long time and I am truly over the moon that I get to enjoy them this fall. These luxurious head turning, show stopping boots are made in Spain and extremely comfortable. The block heel adds 3 ¼ inches to your height and the soft stretch suede shaft wraps up your thighs 24″ with a 14′ circumference. The quality is superb and worth the price tag in my opinion, they are however an investment piece so try them on before you take the leap. They fit true to size and with the back tie to create the perfect fit, these deliciously fashionable boots are a must have addition. So go ahead, pull them on and run to your next meeting, after your kiddos or around the mall and look fabulous at the same time.

Accessorizing this lovely dress is simple because you can pair it with so many things and always look stunning. I added this croc effect cross body to my closet and I am so happy I did. The front and back are book ended with a rich brown, which enhances the navy, a perfect combination. The long adjustable strap, metallic press stud fastener and dual inner compartment, make it a very wearable piece. The price is on point, very affordable, however, I would suggest if you are purchasing for a specific event, order early. I ordered online from MANGO and their shipping tends to be unpredictable, even if you choose the express ship option.
