Hello October and Ageless Style

When you hear the word ‘Autumn’, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Pumpkin Spice Lattes? Falling leaves? All things pumpkin? Halloween? All of these? For me it’s the birthday season, but that’s a post for a different day. LOL. For today, it’s hello October and Ageless Style.

This months theme was chosen by Debbie and is natural beauty. I love a theme that leaves room for interpretation and making it our own. I decided to just go with the colors of Autumn, and the sweater I’m wearing is nothing short of Autumn perfection.

This is a Madewell sweater, and it’s a variation of the one I wanted during the NSale this summer that was never restocked in my size. That actually may have turned into a blessing in disguise. I adore the fall feel of the colorful stripes on this one. The softness is off the charts. Seriously. I also ordered its blush sister version. Size down in these sweaters. They run big. This is an XS and it’s still plenty roomy. Oh and by the way, it’s on sale.??

Look how adorable my Barrington tote is with this outfit. The colors of the leopard are absolute perfection. Y’all, I’m not sure I can really convey in words my love for this bag. I use it All.The.Time. It goes on every trip with me and I use it every Thursday to haul all my things to bible study. It will hold my computer, my jewelry tote, my sunglasses case that hold all my chargers, cords, etc… and any other things I need to carry with me.

I was pretty excited (for y’all) when I found my peep toe booties on major sale. I think out of all the peep toes I’ve seen in the past few years, these are my favorites. I love them not only with jeans, but also with dresses.

Here’s the money shot of the bag. HA! I’m seriously considering ordering another print, but you would of course know all the designs that speak to me involve leopard in some shape, color or form. Hey! A girl knows what she likes.

    Cute look, Lisa. I really like Madewell cardigans, this is a good one!

    I love that sweater. I got one during the NSale but it it was too big so I returned it. They didn’t have my size so now I need to check out this sale you mention! They are the softest sweaters out there!

    That bag!! OMG…how perfect is that? And I just adore the sweater too!! Definitely great for fall Lisa.
    BTW when I pull up your blog, this post doesn’t show up. I still see your TJMaxx post as the most recent one. Is it just me??

      Thanks Jodie and thanks for letting me know about the blog. My husband has been having the same issue and I was on the ipad. I cleared the cache/cookies and it seemed ok. He did the same and it was ok for a bit, but then started back. Who do you think I should contact for that? The webhost?

      • October 1, 2019 / 12:47 pm

        I remember Jennie had an issue with this at one time, you might want to ask her.

        My husband isn’t sure your host will have the answer. He was wondering if you should repost it? Rob always points to a setting that could have gotten changed….did you happen to update anything??

        When I google it this comes up: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/published-posts-not-showing-on-blog/ and the moderator came up with the thought that the theme is the problem? Hmmmmmm But why all of a sudden. I would ask Jennie first…

          I put in a ticket with Siteground and the guy said he cleared out my super cache or something like that and that should take care of it. Maybe you can let me know if you continue to have that issue? Thanks Jodie!!!

          • October 1, 2019 / 4:11 pm

            I checked, and I still see your TJMaxx post as the most recent Lisa? It’s so frustrating, I bet

    Yes to bold stripes! That cardigan is so cute and the fall tones are perfect!

    • October 1, 2019 / 3:32 pm

      I just love it. The Madewell cardis are sooooo soft

    Love the cardi and I’m CRAZY about my Barrington Tote too. I finally bit the bullet and ordered a second one because I carry it nearly every day.

    Happy October!

    • October 1, 2019 / 3:32 pm

      I’m about ready to bite that same bullet. LOL

    The cardigan is absolutely gorgeous, the colors are very pretty on you!

  10. October 1, 2019 / 8:46 pm

    You doll!! I adore this look. Right down to the monogram. Would change my name gladly just to carry that bag. And your peep toe booties, that sweater, the color palette, the necklace and that peplum…superb. I want it all. Do I look like a Lisa to you?

    • October 4, 2019 / 4:07 pm

      Leslie, you are just the sweetest commenter. You could absolutely be a Lisa. ?Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  11. October 2, 2019 / 1:29 pm

    I am not usually one for cardigans but I love the wide stripes on this one!

    • October 4, 2019 / 4:07 pm

      Thank you! Me too. I was afraid I’d feel too pigeon-holed with the colors, but I just love it!

  12. October 2, 2019 / 6:26 pm

    Great, great pictures Lisa! And you’re right…that sweater is perfect for fall!
