To celebrate the Fall Fashion Sip 'n Shop, I popped over to Haywood Mall and ransacked as many stores as possible to put together my dream Summer to Fall transitional look. True to form, I was inspired by every single item I saw but I couldn't resist the leopard print pencil skirt from J. Crew. Once I shimmied it (pulled, struggled, sweated in my Spanx) on, I wanted to take that baby from the tail end of August all the way through late Fall (and football girls, I had to style a look for you!). I thank you advance for humoring my attempts at being a fashion blogger....

First up: leopard skirt goes to work

Ya'll, this skirt. It is so flattering and the bow belt detail is just so fun. It fits true to size and has a tiny bit of stretch for your rougher days. I love leopard for Fall and pairing it with a bright Kelly green is a perfect transition look - especially with a nude heel (in suede!).

The best news about that top? Even with that adorable back, I'm wearing a regular mom bra underneath!

Obsessed with those gorgeous Vernalite earrings from Reeds Jewelers (I tried to sneak them out of the mall but it was a no go!).

And as soon as I laid my eyes on the J. Crew burnt orange puffer vest, I couldn't resist giving this skirt the football makeover - wear it with flats now (because, let's be real, it is HOT at football until November) and with boots when it gets chilly!

And now your handsome reward for suffering through all of my pics..... I have a major giveaway 
(that I kinda want for myself!):

I am giving away a $100 Simon Malls/VISA gift card to a reader! That's right, ladies (and gents), $100 to do what you please (the gift card is accepted anywhere a VISA is accepted!) - could there be anything better??



Good luck and I'll see you on the 11th!

Thank you to Christa Rene Photography for working your camera magic, Ashley Pond Alford of Verb Beauty Studio for hair and make up and to Sarah for standing around in a parking deck with us, pretending like it was a normal thing to do.
