Feminine Top & Black Denim For Transition Into Fall

I am so thankful it is Friday! It’s been a challenging week but Labor Day is Monday so long weekend…yippee!! Tonight and tomorrow will be super busy work days for Jim and me as we are having friends over to watch college football and there are still last minute chores to be finished.  I’m staining deck furniture, which is slow and pain-staking, while he is working in the yard and woods.

I love this kind of work though because it makes me so proud when you are finished. Having people over is a sure-fire way to accomplish procrastinated tasks.

Here is the post from the last time I styled this Democracy top (same top, different colors).  That post has a summery feel because well; it was early summer! This top is versatile because of the longer sleeves and the cream color therefore it makes a good transition top (transition is my word for the next month or so, lol).

I’m looking forward to carrying this cute Topshop mini crossbody in the fall and winter. The dark green color and tortoise handles are so pretty. Believe Nordstrom/Topshop when they use “mini” in their purse description. These are pretty small but the price is nice. This brand is fairly new to me but because of their price points, I’ve ordered quite a few items and been pleased with them all.


My daughter has a talent for crafting (not inherited from me). She showed me how easy it is to create your own agate slice necklace (chains here). Supplies are from Michaels…who knew? I sure didn’t but I’ve enjoyed this one and love how the black contrasts with my lighter tops. She also made me earrings from these druzy charms. I’ll try and put them on here soon.

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making your own, check out her Etsy store (Southern Style 2016) and see what other crafts she has to offer.

Update on the popular Time & Tru loafers from yesterday.  Most sizes are selling out but you can click here and give Walmart your email address for an in stock alert. Hopefully, they will restock soon because they are the cutest!
