Casual & Edgy for Fall

Happy Friday! It’s a three (or four) cups of coffee kind of morning in the Kerley household, but more on that later! 
For now, I’m styling this cute, casual & (somewhat) edgy look for fall!

Pairing dark nails, dark booties, and aviators with the studs on my olive green purse – this look is kind of a bit different for me! But … I like it! 
I wore this outfit when I flew to Memphis over Labor Day weekend, let me tell y’all, this jacket, from Bobeau, is the coziest thing! The fleeced lining inside is oh-so soft {& felt wonderful during my icy cold flight.}
Bobeau, the makers of some seriously luxurious knit pieces, just launched their new site just this week actually! Their pieces are also sold at Nordstroms & Dillard’s.
I love pairing this jacket with these dark booties. I feel like booties only recently became a “thing” 3-4 years ago, you know? 
What on earth were we wearing before then!? 
Thank goodness they’re everywhere, because down here in Texas booties are much easier to throw on than tall boots. Our cold weather probably won’t get here until November, if we’re lucky, so we can pretend it’s fall & still keep cool in our booties. 

Side note: is it just me … or do these black booties kinda remind y’all of The Beatles
In a good way of course.  
(My dad is The Beatles’ #1 fan, so almost everything ends up reminding me of them!)

Shop The Look:

Remember how I mentioned above needing allllll the coffee this morning? I’ve got a busy day ahead of me! Patrick and I are headed to Florida this weekend and I haven’t packed a single thing! 
With 100 last minute errands to run, things to finish up at work & what not, I’m thinking the coffee won’t stop all day long. Want to help me knock something off my to-do list? I’m looking for the perfect beach read! If you’ve got a great book suggestion, I’d love love to hear it! Hoping to download a few goodies to my kindle before we hit the road.  
That’s probably what I’m looking forward to the most during our vacation – just sitting back, relaxing & reading, without a care in the world! It’s not too often that I get to “check out” like that, and I can not wait!
Wishing you lovely readers a fabulous weekend too! Feel free to follow along on Instagram and/or Snapchat (@aliceksnaps) for a look at what we’re up to while on vacation. And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog.

  • I absolutely love that jacket! I would love something like it for my trip to Baltimore next week!

  • Yup, I'm super late on this, BUT if you need raunchy romance novel suggestions or chick flick teenage young adult books from our childhood I'm your girl.
