Must Have Monday

Hello everyone! It is another Monday and hope you all had fabulous weekends! Did anyone have a tough time getting back into the swing of things after Halloween and daylight savings last weekend? I love the extra hour of sleep but not it looking like midnight at 5pm. It's so dark that it makes me sleepier and I just want to curl up and nap. But since that isn't a reality for me or most people lets get to a few of the things I'm loving right now!

1. Over the Knee Boots

I'll admit when I first heard about this trend I was thinking it would look straight Pretty Woman and no, not the dressed up version of Julia Roberts we see at the end of the film. More like the beginning. However, after seeing the different ways you can style the boots, I am obsessed! Perfect for winter and layering, think skinny jeans that you can easily stick into the boots or even tights which add a more coverage to a shorter dress or skirt. I actually ordered this pair today in grey and I can't wait to style them!

2. Spectre

I saw this Friday night and enjoyed it! Who else loves Daniel Craig as the iconic character? This is a great pick for date night since it will appeal to everyone! There are so many movies coming out and it will be awards season soon so get your popcorn ready! Watch the trailer to see James Bond newest mission here!

3. Adele"Hello"

Speaking of James Bond, if you saw the last film, Skyfall, then you had to hear Adele's song by the same name featured, which also won the Oscar that year for Best Song. The talented songstress has been relatively quiet since then but she is back! Her single (if you have been living under a rock) is called Hello and the perfect way to describe it is hauntingly beautiful. The song will instantly bring back memories or make you think of someone from your past you might not have thought about in a while. Take a look at the video now!

4. Ponchos and Capes

This is one trend that has me excited for cool weather are ponchos and capes! Remember the trend a couple of years ago ( I know we were all watching Newlyweds and had to copy Jessica Simpson's style!) but now they are back and trendier than ever. I would pair a poncho like the one below and pair it with black leggings and riding boots or ballet flats. Perfect way to look polished is to add a sleek bun or high ponytail when you have zero time to get ready in the morning!

5. Jane the Virgin

If you missed one of the sleeper hits of last season there is still time to tune it (insert Britney Spears cameo coming up) and I suggest you do so! Follow Jane's adventure of becoming a new mom (if you don't know how she got pregnant then you need to watch season 1 asap) and the comedy is refreshing and more original that keeps you watching week after week! Watch the teaser to set up the show here and season 2 here!

Lots of new posts featuring fall fashions, travel and fitness coming up this week! Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday and thank you for all the support on here and Instagram! I love that my blog is growing and I couldn't do that without the readers so thank you!

  1. I am loving the poncho look!!! I actually saw the cutest plaid one at Charlotte Russe of all places for only $30. I tempted to go back but I already own several... Decisions, decisions! Happy Monday.
