I have to admit, the little social media/blogging/full-time job break over the last week and a half was really nice, and much needed. While I write this blog because I love it and have a passion for it, sometimes disconnecting is completely necessary. We were

Seth and I got back late last week from a week of hiking, relaxing and drinking in Asheville, NC. We hiked the majority of the trip, but we stayed downtown (check out my ‘where to stay’ post here) and explored some new-to-us places as well. I’m going to be sharing a few posts later this week about our trip, but wanted to share this cozy, on-trend sweater before I jump into that content.

The perfect fall booties with Gabes

Success on Stilettos, a Cincinnati fashion and beauty blog; fall booties on a budget with Gabes

It’s that time of year that most of us absolutely love: fall. Why do we love it? Cooler temps (candidly I’m an eternal Summer kinda girl but hey), warm fall beverages, chili, football and most importantly? Fall shopping!

My blog has always had a frugal fashion lens – and you’ve seen my Gabes finds here before, so when Gabes challenged me to find the perfect fall booties, I happily accepted. I’ve got three additional posts coming your way, in addition to this one sharing what I’ve found. When I hit my local store, the shoe section was ON POINT you guys.

They had boots from Qupid (the pair I’m wearing) to Express, Lucky Brand, Nine West and Betsey Johnson. LOTS of name brand boots and booties for an absolute steal.

This particular pair are the PERFCT cognac bootie for fall. The heel isn’t so tall you can’t reasonably walk around all day, they have a little distress so they aren’t too put together.

I also scooped up this button-up jersey blouse and destroyed, raw hem skinny jeans at Gabes too. The best part? This entire look was under $50. Yes, you read that right!

Friday, we meet again! For some reason, this week has seemed to drag by. Even though I’m working a good portion of the weekend, I’m looking forward to a relaxing Sunday of hot yoga + a manicure. Anyway, here’s what I’ve been reading this week:

on SoS: 

  • A classic LBD that I’m transitioning to Fall with a cardi or field jacket.
  • How to layer for cool mornings + hot afternoons.

Fall Style: The Boyfriend Blazer

There’s nothing I love more during cooler months than a good boyfriend blazer. This one in particular is great because its just long enough AND it’s at a great price point (under $50!). The longer length makes it perfect for dressing up or dressing down – anything from work (with cigarette pants or a midi dress) to cocktails with a black swingy dress or midi dress and strappy heels.

This particular look feels like the perfect in between: polished yet a little egdy.

For several seasons now, I’ve been dreaming of adding a camel vest to my wardrobe, but for whatever reason never pulled the trigger. Until I came across this one at a great price point.

Fall’s Best Mini Skirt

It’s no secret that suede and corduroy mini skirts are everywhere this season. I love the trend, but didn’t want to necessarily break the bank on something I didn’t know would be a lasting trend. So when I came across this one at Gabes, I immediately snatched it up.

I also think this look would be perfect for Thanksgiving – classic colors and comfy but on-trend which is totally my Thanksgiving MO.
