Happy Monday! Seriously, where did the weekend go?! This was Dan's last weekend home before he leaves for work so we slept in (which rarely happens), went to sushi for lunch and then did our typical Sunday errands. We came home and had a movie night and made a really yummy stuffed pepper recipe that I will share with you guys soon!

Sharing this lace cami + leather look from yesterday. Have you noticed how camisoles have made their comeback? A leather jacket or blazer can not only dress a lingerie-inspired top down, but give it a modern twist. I got these boyfriend jeans a few weeks ago and they've quickly become a go-to staple. Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

Hello everyone! Sharing a look today that I wore this past weekend for a casual day out with Dan. We went to our local farmers market in the morning and then headed to one of our favorite spots for brunch. If you are in the Pittsburgh area, you need to check out Cafe Des Amis in Sewickley. Their veggie omelet is amazing! After, we went and got pumpkins and mums to decorate our front porch. Pictures to come soon!
I love this cozy warm boyfriend flannel. It layers so great under a sweater or leather jacket. These white jeans are a new favorite and I love them! They are a skinny fit and super soft. These lace up heels are currently on sale and really comfortable.  I was able to walk around all day and no blisters. (#win) I just found these ones fully stocked in all sizes, so if you have been debating about getting a pair, don’t wait! Plus, with the warm fall we seem to be having you will get much wear!

Cozy Neutrals at Home

This time of year is my absolute favorite for so many reasons, but especially because my house is full of so many cozy textures, sweet scents, and decor.  I typically don't do a lot of 'holiday specific' decorating throughout different seasons (other than Christmas), but adding in a few decorative accents to your space can make all the difference.  I love having classic, timeless pieces of furniture, wall decor, and rugs, but my favorite way to switch things up is by adding seasonal accessories.  A pretty candle set, fur pillow, or new lamp can instantly take your space from basic to cute & cozy.  Try adding in a few unique details, like these book ends and chic wall art. You all know that I'm all about neutrals ALL year long, but there's just something about Fall and the upcoming Holidays that make me love them even more!

I hope you all have a great weekend!  It's been a pretty crazy week here, so I'm excited for a little R&R over the next couple of days!  It's Dan's last weekend at home before he leaves for work so we have a few dates planned and then going out with friends to brunch on Sunday.  Are you guys up to anything fun?!  Be sure to follow along on snapchat, @kellitesta or Instagram to keep in touch!

This is one of my favorite dresses because it's so light and comfortable and I'm obsessed with the low back. Being one of my favorite colors, I've never followed the no white after Labor Day rule and more often than not, I try and find ways to incorporate these pieces into transitional fall outfits. Throwing on a utility jacket and OTK boots can do just that. Plus fall weather in Pittsburgh can vary day to day and layering is usually a must. All pieces are linked below.

Do you have any summer dresses that you continue to wear in the fall? How do you make them look seasonally appropriate? I'd love to hear your ideas!

Hello lovelies! Dan and I are officially back from vacation and attempting to throw ourselves back into work and normal schedules. It's going to be a two cup kind of coffee day. We had such a great time visiting with family. It's so nice to "unplug" for a weekend but I've missed the blog and all of you! We have some really exciting collaborations coming up in the near future that I can't wait to share.

Today, sharing one of my favorite pastel palettes. Sometimes I need a break from the oxblood and army green fall palettes that seem to be everywhere and revert back to my light neutrals. It's a nice way to refresh your look with a very feminine vibe. This was the perfect outfit for lunch with the girls last weekend. This whole look is under $100 and sizes are running out fast. All links (plus some similar items) are listed below.
Have a great week!

Happy Friday ladies! I just got this necklace in the mail this week and I am in love. It's such a great way to dress up an everyday casual outfit. Whether you’re simplifying with one statement necklace, trying your hand at layering delicate chains, or stacking chunky styles, there’s a look out there for almost any occasion. I bought this for pairing with button down shirts and sweaters but it's been unusually warm the past few days. And hey, we aren't complaining. Hope you have a great weekend!
