Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

 Guess who’s back??!!

For those of you who have been living under a rock, my hometown of Savannah was just hit by Hurricane Matthew and our beautiful season was marred by its path of destruction. Many are still without power and it is just truly devastating. I have never seen so many uprooted trees in my life. Beautiful homes were torn apart or left underwater and many lost everything. But through this all, our community has come together, united, to help those who were struck by tragedy.

Luckily, my home was spared. We lost a few trees and one came dangerously close to our bedroom, but we never lost power! Thank you underground power lines! We did, however, lose cable and internet and that is the reason for my brief hiatus. We evacuated early Thursday morning and were able to return home on Sunday. We finally got internet access back yesterday and I could not wait to catch up with all my wonderful readers!

So thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I ask that you continue to pray for our beautiful city that I love so much, specifically for those who have lost everything. Thank you for being patient during my hiatus and for sticking with me these past few years!

Now enough of the heavy…

It is finally starting to feel like Fall in Savannah and our cooler temps have me wanting to pull out all of my favorite layering pieces. A new addition to those pieces is this fabulous olive jacket. It is made from a thicker material than your basic cardi and is just long and fabulous. Olive is such a great color for the Fall because it really is a great basic. It goes with so much so it can easily be implemented into your existing wardrobe. That is also the great thing about this jacket. It has great lines and details and was easy to add with pieces in my wardrobe. It was also at an amazing price point, which makes my wallet very happy!

Since my outfit mostly consisted of basics, I went with edgier accessories. My favorite leopard flats were necessary because leopard just makes everything so much better. My clutch is an older find from Forever 21 but I will link some similar pieces below. My necklace was c/o of Kendra Scott and I just love the gunmetal detail. It definitely takes my look to another level, going above and beyond being simply basic. My sunglasses are a few years old and are Tory Burch. I love wearing big frames because I feel like they accent my face better than something smaller. This pair of sunglasses means a lot to me because it was one of the first pair of designer sunglasses that I purchased for myself. They were also the first item that I owned by this fabulous designer.

While I do love fashion, this past week has made me realize what is really important in life. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how many pairs of shoes or designer handbags that own, what matters is having family and friends beside you, supporting you and lifting you up. This hurricane had me so worried for my family friends and I am happy to say that they are all ok with little to no damage to their houses. I am so grateful that we made it all out safely on the other side of this natural disaster and I pray that it is something we never have to experience again.
