Pretty Fix: The September List

Happy September pretties!  It’s my birthday month, the big day is tomorrow. Craig and I took a mini-vacation to celebrate our belated anniversary and my early birthday last week.  He was on business in California so I tagged along. We spent a few days touring San Francisco, Napa Valley and Sonoma. It was a whirlwind trip but very relaxing with lots of great food and of course, wine! We haven’t taken a kid-free trip in over four years so it was high time.

This month’s Pretty Fix features one of the outfits that I packed for our trip to California. Every piece in this outfit is also on the shopping list for the Fall 2017 GYPO Style Challenge which opened last Friday.  If you haven’t joined me for a style challenge yet, now is the perfect time to rebuild your fall capsule wardrobe.  This is our biggest challenge of the year! You can learn more and sign up here.

This outfit is SO me.  It’s basically a dressed up tee and jeans, my daily uniform. I switched to my gold slip on sneakers for our day of touring San Francisco and then changed into my ankle boots for dinner.

Pretty Fix – September 2017


1. Long Cardigan

To say I have a cardigan stashed in my bag year-round is not an exaggeration. This light beige cardigan is super versatile for fall. It’s a great lightweight layer. This linen cardigan is also a great choice.

2. White V Neck Tee

This white tee is seriously one of the best I’ve ever owned.  I love the fit, fabric and bit of drapey-ness.  This one is another good option at a great price.

3. Printed Scarf

I got no less than three compliments on this printed scarf the day I flew to California!  It’s generously sized and the colors are perfect for fall.

4. Frayed Hem Jeans

Frayed hem jeans are here to stay for fall 2017.  I have this pair and like the higher rise on them.  This pair is a little darker wash but fits great.

5. Ankle Boots

These suede ankle boots are a bit of a splurge but worth every penny.  This budget friendly option is also cute and has a lower heel.
