Mad for Plaid





Top: J.Crew Factory Classic Button-down in Flannel // Jeans: Gap 1969 Always Skinny Jeans // Booties: Kate Spade (similar) // Necklace: Gorjana & Griffin Vicerory Necklace // Purse: Vintage Louis Vuitton // Sunnies: Marc by Marc Jacobs Iconic Cat Eye

Fall weather is finally hitting Norman! It is hard to believe that the temperature was still hitting 90 in October. While I am not a fan of cold weather, I am excited to switch my wardrobe around and have a chance to wear layers. When I saw this plaid flannel shirt on sale at J.Crew Factory, I just couldn’t resist. The red and grey are versatile though the holiday season, easy to layer and warm enough for the brisk temperatures of winter. I paired the simple flannel with my new favorite jeans from Gap and Kate Spade booties. xoxo

Rain Bootie Trend


Loefler Randall Fenton Rain Boot // Kate Spade Sedgewick Rain Boots

This fall booties seem to be everywhere; from suede to leather you can find the perfect color and style to go with just about any outfit. But no one wants to lose their new booties in an unexpected rainstorm. This is where Loefler Randall and Kate Spade step in. They have created the rain bootie, so you can keep the short boot trend you love, without fear of ruining suede or leather. The size of these booties are perfect for condensed packing or to keep in your car or under your desk in case of an unexpected storm. xoxo

Dress: Anthropologie Dotted Chambray Tunic // Sweater: Banana Republic Quilted Back Zip Sweater (similar) // Shoes: J.Crew Collection Stella Calf Hair Pumps // Purse: Vintage Louis Vuitton // Earrings: Tory Burch Large T Logo Studs // Watch: Michael Kors Mini-Size Madison Three-Hand Glitz Watch, Golden/Silver // Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs Iconic Cat Eye Sunglasses

I honestly hate cold weather. I am already a naturally cold person and warm clothes are not only itchy and uncomfortable, but expensive too. This summer I fell in love with this Cloth and Stone Tunic from Anthroplogie because it is light weight and very versatile. I wanted to find a way to continue wearing this tunic through the fall, but I did not want to hide the shape under a bland cardigan. I saw this Back Zip Sweater at Banana Republic and knew that the asymmetrical hem would compliment the shape of the dress while keeping me warm. I paired this look with Leopard Pumps from J.Crew and a classic brown Louis Vuitton to complete the fall look. Hopefully I can save more of my summer favorites with this sweater! xoxo

A Pearl Kind of Girl is back up and running! Redesigning the site was the easy part for me, but self-hosting has been the long part of this process. I honestly should have paid a professional, like everyone else does, but I was determined to figure this out myself. With the help of my IT department (my boyfriend/cheerleader) my site has officially made the switch and I will no longer spend hours on hold with WordPress or HostGator! There are still a few glitches I am trying to work out with Safari (if you see weird lines, please ignore them), but I could not wait any longer to start blogging again.

When I redesigned A Pearl Kind of Girl, I wanted to go back to a clean and simple look. I wanted it to be easy for readers to scroll through my posts and navigate my site without any distractions. I have also made it easier to receive each post in your inbox (you can sign up for emails on the right side of the page). With the redesign comes a stronger focus on my content. I will be posting more content regarding style, outfits and new products and brands. While I am finishing up school, I cannot post everyday but will be posting more often.

I wanted to share one of my favorite go-to outfits that mirrors my new site. I have fallen in love with the simplicity of a white top and jeans, especially this top from Anthropologie. I have also discovered the beauty of simple jewelry and the amazing work of Consider The Wildflowers. Their simple stackable rings have become a new staple in my wardrobe. I hope everyone loves the new design and all of my future posts! I greatly appreciate comments and suggestions. xoxo
