Wardrobe Wednesday | Long & Loose High-Low Shirts

I’m all about the high-low trend when it comes to long, loose, comfy shirts. It makes them a little more flattering and interesting than just a huge oversize shirt, and brings more of a trendy element to what can still be a really comfortable outfit. Add a cute accessory or two, and you’re totally set for an easy, everyday Fall look. I especially loved the look of the loafer type shoes in the inspiration photo, but it would work great with ankle boots and a scarf added, as well!

I found this shirt at TJ Maxx about a month ago and have worn it SO many times, since. It’s just so soft and comfy and I’m all about olive green, as well as stripes. So, it just had “Tori” written all over it. The shoes, likewise, were purchased about 2 months ago and have been an absolute staple in my Fall wardrobe. I love the woven design on them, and yet how they’re still neutral and can go with so many things.

Shirt: TJ Maxx, $15 | Jeans: Old Navy, $19 | Shoes: Kodachrome Vintage, $35 | Necklace: Contrary, $20 | Purse: Fossil Outlet, $100

If you’re looking for amazing vintage shoes in excellent condition, I can’t rave enough about Kodachrome Vintage on Etsy. They have one of the best curated collections I’ve seen, and the shop owners are super fabulous! Likewise, if you’re ever looking for unique jewelry pieces, my friend and former bride Mary makes the coolest stuff. She’s also a Richmond native! I love getting to support other small businesses and fellow creatives and without fail the pieces that I get from places like that become my favorites.

So are you a fan of high-low shirts or does this trend leave you skeptical?

Bree & Wilson | Coral & Gray Wedding at The Osprey’s

Bree & Wilson’s wedding day was full of the unexpected and kept all of us on our toes! But these two could not have been more joyful and excited in spite of the many things that were thrown in to the mix (including unexpected sickness and an ER trip the night before!). When any normal couple would have completely crumbled under stress, Bree & Wilson were the picture of grace. Truly. I was so impressed by how go-with-the-flow and joyful both of them were and how well all of their family and friends came around them and truly just celebrated. They never once lost site of the purpose of the day, which was their love and commitment to each other. I absolutely loved getting to be part of their beautiful day and I’m excited to share some of my favorites!

The bright pops of color, fun bow ties and beautiful flowers are such a great combo, right?? It perfectly reflected the vibrance of Bree & Wilson as a couple and the total FUN of their whole group of family and friends. Thanks to all of the other vendors who made their day a success and to Bradley Roy for shooting with me!

Wardrobe Wednesday | Slouchy Sweaters & Floral Skirts

When I first came across this week’s inspiration outfit on Pinterest, I just liked how comfortable it looked while still being a cute skirt outfit. Perfect for the Fall with the sweater and tights, and still says “cozy”. Plus, it worked out perfectly that I already had very similar items in my closet.

Fall Craft Ideas

I’m attending a ladies craft night tomorrow night where we will all bring our own project to work on while getting to hang out with each other. They’re always so fun, but I found myself without a craft to work on! So this, of course, got me scouring Pinterest for what I should do as my project. I always love the idea of seasonal DIY’s to spice up the house decor a bit, but truthfully I never do half as many as I intend. But these four options seemed easy enough that I realistically think I could and would enjoy doing them. I’m probably leaning towards one of the wreath options for tomorrow night.

Fall Crafts_0001.jpg

1. Sharpie on leaves | 2. Brown bag leaf wreath | 3. Book page wreath | 4. Mod-podged pumpkins

Are you currently working on any Fall craft projects? Are there any other great ones you’ve spotted online that I should consider for tomorrow night? Would love to hear your feedback!
