September Pin-spired!

It’s September!  I am so excited to be getting Pin-spired with you this month!  
Let’s be honest, the summer months are hard to get excited about because we wear the same things over and over again (or at least I do!).  It was three months of shorts, tees, swimsuits, flip flops, repeat.  But now, we’re into fall…the prime fashion season.  I’ve decided to use this month as a transition time.  The weather is still warm but it’s time to kick off those flip flops and start thinking about cooler temps.  
All of my looks this month are transition looks to get you from summer to fall.
Before we get started, I must tell you this…last year, I had so many emails and comments about both my orange and my yellow coats from Banana Republic…well guess what ladies, they’re back!  
And this weekend, they are 40% off!  
I just love the orange!!
I’m kind of flippin’ out about this :).
Now…on to Pin-spired…
I used the one and only Sheaffer as my Pinterest inspiration for Look #1.  I styled her Must Have Denim Jacket!
I’m going to be honest, I’m obsessed with this little jacket and can think of 1,698 ways to wear it.  Thank you Sheaffer for finding it and telling me about it.  This jacket is the perfect transition piece!  If you can’t find your size in my wash, try the same jacket in this wash (it’s just as cute!).
I paired the jacket with my cargo shorts and long-sleeved striped tee.  Perfect for September!

This tee also comes in navy or blue stripe too.

And if I get too warm, I can take off the jacket and I’m still seasonably appropriate with a dash of fall color (and not the neon pink I so adore in the summer).

I paired this look with some heavy cognac colored wedges (which are now really marked down!!!).  But wouldn’t my camo Toms have looked cute with this too?!?!
I am such a sucker for boyfriend jeans…and I am such a sucker for distressed jeans…so, the combination of the two just makes sense! (And I’m dying over her leopard heels too!)

Again, I layered for September.  This time, I used a little color from my summer wardrobe, but when I paired my green tee with the longer pants and striped tank, it worked!    

And another pair of brown wedges :).
Look #3: Shorts and Wellies
Ladies, it’s time to buy some Hunter Wellingtons (Erika and Narci, I’m talking to YOU!).

My Wellies were worn so much last year!  Not only are they comfy, they really keep your feet dry and warm, and they never go out of style.  Wellies are classic.

My shorts get used one more month before I retire them until spring…I just paired them with a long sleeve boyfriend shirt (and that same striped tank because it’s so cute and versatile!).

I love my Mollee V initial necklace and my Love necklace as well :).

I heart my Wellies.

You should totally buy a pair of these babies :).
And I have a few bonus pieces for you this September…
I saw Narci with this scarf on at church a few weeks ago and fell in love with not only the colors but the weight of it. Then last Tuesday, I was walking through the Juniors department and found it myself.  I love, love, love it!  And it’s only $18.  The photo online does not do it justice at all!  I will be wearing this all fall!
Leopard and pink…perfection.  (And my nails are OPI Lincoln Park After Dark)
And then look at this fun wrap bracelet I received!  They’re from Chloe + Isabel which is a new brand I’ve fallen in love with.  They have some fabulous jewelry!

 I love this leather wrap bracelet too!

I had fun getting Pin-spired this month and I hope you did too!

Don’t forget to see how Mel and Sheaffer were Pin-spired this month well!  I’m so excited about September!

    Fabulous looks Shay! And I absolutely adore the leopard scarf!

  • Kelly Jo August 30, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Love the looks!

  • Alison @ Get Your Pretty On August 30, 2013 at 11:17 am

    Your Wellies and shorts are adorable! Have a great long weekend!

  • Sheaffer {Pinterest Told Me To} August 30, 2013 at 11:31 am

    Love ALL your looks! And listen, you need to take a hard stand like I do. Like "I'm not going to be your friend anymore if you don't by Hunter boots." It's for their own good really….people NEED them they just don't realize it!!!!! πŸ™‚

    Love so many of these, but limited myself to the orange Banana jacket. Such a steal with the 40% off sale.

  • Liz/happymommy August 30, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    That orange jacket is to die for….I am going to check it out after I post this. Plus, I need more arm candy in my life and you have inspired me to do so. I have been wearing a few that I already have but I need more like yesterday so I am off on a mission to buy!!! Have a great Labor Day weekend!!!

  • Sarah E @ theteacherswife.com August 30, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    Your looks are great (as usual)! I've always loved stripes, but seeing all yours in your wardrobe give me much more confidence to just fill my closet with them! I always feel like I should diversify, but they go with so much!! πŸ™‚

  • Rachel August 30, 2013 at 10:40 am

    Shay, of all that you posted, I love the leopard & pink scarf! You've convinced me that I need more arm candy/ bangles as well πŸ™‚ Happy Labor Day weekend to you!

    Love the orange Banana Republic jacket . Your jean jacket is awesome too. Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

  • DetroitDuchess August 30, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    Ooooh! I loved those Banana Republic coats in your previous posts, I am going to get one.

    I ended up getting myself some Hunter boots after your posts about them, but I have a wide calf and they were just too tight. But then I discovered the Huntress boot which is the wide-calf edition. I just exchanged them and can't wait to try them on!

    There aren't as many colors, but I am getting the violet ones from Nordstrom: http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/hunter-huntressgloss-boot-wide-calf-women/3234085?origin=keywordsearch-personalizedsort&contextualcategoryid=2375500&fashionColor=Merlot&resultback=2146&cm_sp=personalizedsort-_-searchresults-_-1_6_D

    I love your scarf! Ugh, I'm on a spending freeze after the Nordstrom anniversary sale, but one of my next purchases will most likely be the Wellies.

  • Cathy's World August 30, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    Love this post. However. I can't even imagine thinking about fall clothes. We live in Cali and it is 100 today and it will not fall below 90 until late October or start of November. It makes me happy! I LOVE SUMMER. I have been reading that summer is over since August 1st. I guess I didn't get the memo!!

    I seriously love the Wellies and I think a jean jacket should be a staple!

    Have a great weekend! I will be enjoying summer. πŸ™‚

  • Nicki August 30, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    You and Sheaffer just make me want to shop. Every single time!! Love how you've styled your outfits – hope your weather starts cooling down soon so you can start enjoying fall!

  • Narci D August 31, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    The Wellies. I know! Picking a color gets me every time–so many precious colors that I want them all! πŸ™‚

  • Jeanette September 1, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    I love your fashion tips, and while I realize you are in awesome shape, I'd love any tips you have for dressing curvier bodies. I've been losing weight but want to look good in the meantime, too! This comment is inspired by the Toms . . . I don't know if they look as good on curvier legs. Maybe so, but don't know! And I know I can't pull off wellies or tall boots because they just don't fit me well. But open to tips about any types of style!

  • mel @ the larson lingo September 2, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    That leopard & pink scarf. NEED. Love it!!! Super cute outfits, as usual!
