3 Fall Outfits ft. SJ’s Southern Cuties

3 Fall Outfits ft. SJ’s Southern Cuties

I am so excited to be working with SJ’s Southern Cuties on this post! They have the cutest southern, preppy, and monogrammed clothes, shoes, and accessories. Today I am sharing three items from their shop and how I styled each of them into a perfect for fall outfit! Oh and before I forget, they were so generous to give me a promo code for y’all to use. Use code: KATELYN10 for 10% off your order. Happy shopping!

The items were gifted to me but all opinions are 100% my own.

Leopard Monogram Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt is so fun! I love the bold leopard monogram with the boxy, cropped fit. It is perfect for wearing on its own with leggings or jeans and it would also be really cute for throwing over a workout outfit before/after your workout.

Monogrammed Duck Boots

I want to say these boots are my favorite of this post but honestly it’s so hard to decide because everything is so cute! I love how the monogram doesn’t stand out too much and is just a subtle addition that gives that personalized look. They are also so functional and comfortable. Perfect for cold, rainy days with a waterproof bottom half of the shoe and a soft plaid lining.

Pumpkin Monogram Sweatshirt

This sweatshirt completes all my fall, cozy dreams. The fleece lining is so warm and cozy and the monogram pumpkin is simply the cutest. You can wear it throughout fall to add a festive flair to your outfit. It is also perfect for Halloween if you don’t want to dress up.

The cutest tumbler and best fall sneakers

The cutest tumbler and best fall sneakers

I recently found an adorable etsy shop that makes monogrammed and personalized items! Is this black and gold tumbler not the cutest?! The black and gold is so perfect for fall, because of course ones cup must match their outfit. Shop Swoon Designs was so kind to send me this tumbler. You can shop their store here. They also gave me a promo code for you to use for 15% off: SEERSUCKERSOCAL15

Speaking of fall… I am loving all the sneakers this season! They can really add so much to an outfit. Below are some of my favorites.

Back to School Outfit Inspo

Back to School Outfit Inspo

Getting ready to go back to school this year is certainly different then it’s been in the past. I normally would be getting a new backpack, a new pair of school shoes, and a few new polos for school (I wear a uniform). Instead I haven’t really been looking forward to the start of school – I start Monday. This post has gotten me a little more excited and I hope it does for you too!

As I mentioned above I wear uniforms at my school but we do have free dress days which is when I would wear these outfits. We are also starting online so I can wear these outfits then too. These outfits are also good just for some fall outfit inspiration (whether you are a student or not)!

Emily from Em by the Sea is sharing her back to school outfits too! She has the cutest style and y’all should definitely go check out her blog and instagram.

5 outfits for everyday of the week and every occasion


Similar sweater, tank, sweat pants, similar slippers

This outfit totally represents how I’m feeling about virtual learning. If I have to be at home for school I might as well take advantage of being able to wear super comfy clothes. And the only acceptable shoe choice for at home school is slippers (obviously!).


Tee, backpack, necklace, sneakers

This outfit is so classic yet simple and effortless. It’s also perfect for transitioning into fall because every preppy girl knows navy and white stripe work for any season!


Skort, sneakers

I don’t know about y’all, but in California fall still feels like summer. On those extra hot days I call in my tennis skorts for the win. At the beginning of this post I talked about free dress days at my school. On these days we still have a dress code and so I guess you can say I “cheat the system” by wearing a skirt. Our uniform is a skort that everyone wears short and so by wearing a tennis skort it isn’t as noticeable by the deans as short shorts are. I also love wearing t-shirts like this. The one I’m wearing is actually from family weekend at SMU but I get most of my tees from Vineyard Vines, Simply Southern, and Its a girl Thing.


Leggings, tee, sweater, sneakers, headband

This outfit is what I would say is not your ~average~ leggings and t-shirt look. The faux leather leggings are still super comfy but look a little more fashionable. A simple white tee and barefoot dreams cardigan replace a t-shirt and sweatshirt. I finished off the look with a knotted headband and white sneakers.


Sweater (part of the Nordstrom sale!), sneakers

Getting major fall vibes from this look! I love how this sweater has that chunky look without actually being too warm. Plus it doesn’t have any wool. I’m allergic and it can sometimes be hard to find sweaters without it. I also love these rose gold sneakers. This outfit will definitely have to sit in my closet for a little while longer thought because it is still too hot out for sweaters.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites 2020

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites 2020

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is me of my favorite sales each year! It always gets me so excited for fall. This year is definitely one of the better years for this sale with a ton of cute comfy and clothes. I was talking to a Nordstrom employee who told me that’s really all they’ve been getting in recently because that’s what people are buying (and I am not complaining about this! Especially since I’m starting school virtual).

In this post I’m sharing my favorites from the sale, separated into nine different categories (one of them being what I purchased).

Lilly Dressed for Summer Sale

Lilly Dressed for Summer Sale

Good morning! I have been up since 4:45 so that I could shop the Lilly Pulitzer sale. Normally, they have two big After Party Sales, one in the spring and one at the end of summer. This year they added this sale that lasts 48 hours and is exclusively online. When you go onto the website you are put in a virtual line to keep the website from crashing. Luckily I only had a 5 minute wait time this morning. And typically if you go on the website a few hours after the start of the sale, you won’t be waiting longer than ten minutes as traffic slows down.

I got a few items from the sale and wanted to share what I got. I also thought I would share a few of my favorites from the sale that I didn’t get. And if you aren’t crazing like me and didn’t wake up before sunrise, don’t worry because there is still plenty of options left.

Just click on an image for the link.

What I Got

The pink luxletic skort is all ready sold out. Actually all of their tennis skorts sold out right away but here is linked their skorts not on sale.

My Favorites


The Elsa top (the first one) is a fan favorite for years. I’ve never tried one but I trust my fellow Lilly lovers. I love the three solid tops (if you count the blue printed reversible tank) because I can wear them with so many Lilly printed bottoms. I got the striped sweater for Christmas and it is so so soft.


The Madison skort (the first skirt shown) was my very first Lilly Pulitzer purchase and it is still one of my favorites. I also have a pair of leggings in the same style shown that are so cute and comfy.

Summer Madewell Haul

Summer Madewell Haul

Hello! I am so excited that it is finally summer and the sun is out! Madewell has some adorable summer clothes and has been having some great sales lately. I ordered a few things, shown below. Hope you enjoy! Oh and btw you can check my Instagram story for a try on (will be saved to highlights).

Top in an extra small: First up is this v-neck pocket tee. I love the classic navy and white stripe! Stripe tees are such a summer staple.

Shorts in a 24: I also have been in need of a new pair of jean shorts and I love this light wash and slightly frayed hem. I also like that they aren’t too tight or short.

Top in an extra small: This top is sadly sold out but this tie dye tee has the same boxy fit. This one is cute too.

Shorts: These shorts are old from Abercrombie. These white Madewell shorts look super cute though.

Top in an extra extra small: I actually already had this tee but it is from Madewell and it is my favorite white tee.

Shorts in a 25: Sadly these shorts were too big. Madewell seems to run consistently a size too big in shorts/pants. They are very cute though and I love the relaxed fit. Plus they are super comfy with some stretch in the denim.

Sweatshirt in an extra small: This is probably my favorite thing I got. The graphic on is so cute! It’s so perfect for beach nights!

Shorts in a 24: These are the same shorts worn with the stripe tee.

Hi friends! Happy Friday!

I am loving wearing sun dresses this summer, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorites!

I got these in my Summer clothing haul! (Check out that post here!)

Let’s get started!

1. Blue dress from Shein

I love this dress from Shein! It’s so comfy and lightweight. It’s also an adorable color and pattern. I love the ruffled sleeves!

2. White dress from Target

I really like this dress from Target!!!

It’s flowy and ruffled all the way down! It’s a halter top too!

3. White dress from Shein

I know it’s another white dress but I love them so much! This one is plain and simple but one of my favorites! It is straight down with a ruffle at the end. It hits right above the knee which is a great length! I also pair this with this hair scarf and sunglasses! ( I link to and talk more about those here)

Outfit sold out from Lou and Grey

Since the start of self quarantining there’s been a few days where I am inspired to wear a cute outfit but lately it’s been cold and rainy and all I want to do is be comfy. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite items that have been getting me through these times. I have a few brands I love for comfy clothes so I separated everything by brand.

Lou and Grey @ Loft

Lou and Grey is seriously so soft and is perfect for when you want to be comfy without wearing athleisure wear.


Workout clothes are essential for comfort and Lululemon has some of the best.

Vineyard Vines

“Every day should feel this good” is a saying that perfect fits Vineyard Vines. Their fabric are so soft and everything is really cute!

Lilly Pulitzer

I love this brand not just for its adorable prints but for how comfortable everything is. Visit this post for more.

Happy shopping and happy almost Easter, XOXO Katelyn
