It is so crazy to me that we are already well into the fall season; where did the month of September go? Have you done all your back to school / fall wardrobe re-fresh shopping?
I have certainly stocked up on a few things and wanted to update you all on a few other recent favorites.
Clockwise from top left:
Margaux Shoes: If you are a longtime Simply Elegant blog follower, you will know that Margaux is one of my go-tos for all my shoes, from ballet flats to heels. I more or less live in their Demi Bow Ballerina Flats (I love the new brown suede color I bought for fall!) Over the last few weekends, I have been wearing the Margaux City Sandals to all the weddings I have been going to, and I love how comfortable the 2.5 inch block heel is.
Block Print T-Shirt: We know I love a traditional floral block print, so I could not resist adding this t-shirt to my closet.
Hand Cream from Follain: As you know, I love Follain’s clean and all-natural skincare line, so I was thrilled to receive an early sample of their new hand cream to try! It can sometimes seem so hard to find a truly nourishing hand cream, but this one perfectly does the trick, thanks to ingredients like shea butter and white peony oil. (And for only $14 I feel like this will be my go-to stocking stuffer/holiday gift.)
Ivory Cashmere Sweater: I have been on the hunt for a fitted cardigan to layer over dresses this fall (an option to use as a dressier alternative to a denim jacket.) I found this style from Vince (on sale!) and ordered it last week – I will keep you posted on my thoughts once it arrives.
New Pamela Munson Handbag Collection: It may be the middle of fall but nothing can get me excited for a warm-weather vacation like Pamela Munson and her new Resort Handbag Collection. In my mind, no one makes wicker or straw handbags the way she does!(Read more about some of my favorite Pamela Munson bags here.) I am eyeing this Emerald Green style for my closet.
The Hanging Traveler Bag: Another one of my favorite resources for handbags and travel bags is Neely & Chloe. After eying their hanging travel bag for months, I finally bought it this summer and I have been so pleased with it! It holds a surprisingly large amount of hanging clothes and you can even pack shoes in those extra side pockets.
Greystone Needlepoint: Over the past year or so, Greystone Needlepoint, a wonderful online shop curated by Shannon Zimolong, has become one of my favorite places to find new canvases. This week I was thrilled to launch a fun Instagram giveaway with Shannon and our friend Mary, so be sure to pop over to Instagram and enter our giveaway for your chance to win a gift card to Greystone before the contest ends on Sunday night.
