Bloggers Who Budget: Fall For Less

Comfy Nude Heels, Everyday Work Outfit, Patterned Jogger Pants
Patterned Pants from Gap, Black and Beige Outfit Idea, Nude Heels

I don't know about you but I would love if cooler Fall weather would get here STAT. I long for the mornings when I step outside thinking it's going to be hot, but instead there is a slight chill in the air and all I want is to go back inside + grab a cozy sweater. Unfortunately, that kind of weather is no where upon us. We keep getting pump fakes where the weather is in the mid-70s and by 11/12PM its scorching hot ... not a fan. 

When getting ready for work in the morning I am constantly grabbing pieces that will transition me into Fall. The neutral tones are what I tend to gravitate towards during this time of year, which is why I love this outfit so much. These patterned jogger pants are light weight enough to get me through the rest of summer and will certainly get some use during the first few months of Fall. They don't wrinkle easily and can be washed in the washing machine. & the best part is they are on MAJOR sale right now ... like less than $20. Another great recent find is this casual cotton crewneck top. I grabbed this in three different colors & have already worn them all over the last couple weeks. They go with pretty much anything from casual to work attire, so I might grab a couple more. 

What are some of your favorites pieces to transition you into Fall weather?

Coffee Talk

Hello Thursday! & Hello to another Coffee Talk. Let's get to it!

FEELING:  WARNING: This is sappy. ha! Tomorrow is my birthday & I can't seem to stop thinking about all that I have accomplished in the last 28 years of my life. Getting to where I am certainly hasn't been an easy road, but I am so grateful for everything I have done, all the people I have met & the things I have learned along the way. Growing up I thought I had everything planned out. I was going to marry my high school sweet heart, go to grad school - become a Physician Assistant (!!), travel the world, & have a couple babies all before 28. Life took a different path & even though I sometimes think about what it would be like to already be married & have a couple babies, I have to keep reminding myself that God has a plan for me & that everything works out just the way it is suppose too.  I love my life & everyone in it. I wouldn't want to do life with anyone else then Nicholas & I can't wait to see what the future holds for the two of us.

THINKING ABOUT:  Work can be pretty exhausting & there are some days where I feel like I fail majorly as a provider. I am constantly griping at myself for not knowing EVERYTHING but I have to keep reminding myself that I am not suppose to be a know it all & that it's ok that I'm not perfect. It is really overwhelming when a patient comes in with a rash I have never seen or array of symptoms that are all over the place or I can't remember the exact dosage on the medication I want to prescribe. These are  just some of the things I get frustrated with and it really takes a toll on me mentally and emotionally. I am really trying my best to make sure I am consistently educating myself on things I may not know just so that I can be more prepared when I see my patients but I have to remember that it isn't going to happen over night. I have to take it one day at a time. These next four days off are much needed. Next Tuesday will be a fresh start.

LISTENING TO: N introduced me to X Ambassadors & I keep listening to the song Gorgeous on repeat. It is SOOOO good! Give it a listen if you haven't heard it before.

WATCHING:  We have been sucked into the ... Bachelor in Paradise. I use to be one of those that watched every single season of The Bachelor + Bachelorette, but that has not been the norm over the last several years. But this season of the Bachelor in Paradise is hilarious & super entertaining. Clare is talking to animals .. which is totally normal for her & Mikey T is soooo into himself that he can't see straight. & let's not forget Ashley S. dear lord this girl ... she finally make one logical comment last night WITHOUT crying. And sweet Tenley, I really do hope she finds love at some point in her life. With that being said, N + I are eagerly waiting for next Sunday/Monday night to get our BIP fix. Any of you watching this seasons BIP, if so tell me what you think!

EATING: Gummy vitamins. That's right ... I have tried to do the whole vitamin pills thing & I fail miserably every single time. A couple weeks ago N + I purchased some vitamins and stuff through GNC's website since they were having a big sale & one of the things I got was Calcium + Vitamin D gummies. I have not missed a single day, which is a rarity for me. So I decided to exchange the womens daily vitamins for gummies & I am already on board. Trust me, gummies are NOT for kids!

READING: Lately I have been stuck reading buzzfeed on my way to work in the mornings. It takes absolutely NO thought process and gives me a little giggle or two. Thanks to Faith I have found a new app that I love. 

THANKFUL FOR:  Quality time with my other half has meant more to me lately then ever. He really is the light to my every day & I love how he always knows what to say to put me back together. I don't know what I did to deserve him.

LOVING:  A few weeks back I went to the eye doctor because this girl finally got health insurance. I haven't had my eyes checked in almost 5 years and since I stare at computers all day & am reading constantly I have been getting daily headaches, migraines and my vision has been blurry at times. Much to my surprise, I was told that my distance vision is impaired and I have a small astigmastism while reading things up close. I ended up getting two pair of glasses & am LOVING them both. It has taken some getting use too & I am still getting headaches occasionally, due to the fact that I am not use to wearing things on my nose constantly but overall I am getting less migraines. So much happier! & cute glasses don't hurt either. 

Now tell me, how has your week been! Share the details! xo

Creamy Lace

PHOTOS c/o Lacey Faeh

I love finding a dress that offers a little bit of sass & this dress is 100% that. When trying it on for the first time at home I wasn't 110% onboard with the poofy flares on the side of the dress, but after spending a day/night wearing this to work, followed by a night out with some girlfriends it kinda grew on me. I joked the entire time I wore it that I looked like a little oompa loompa, but honestly, I loved that the dress was different + the fact that stood out from the usual dresses I wear. I got so many compliments & am already planning on wearing this creamy lace detailed dress to the next shin-ding I plan on attending. Are you a fan of dresses or pieces of clothing that are little out of your comfort zone?
