We celebrated my brother’s birthday last night and I wore one of my new dresses from Dottie Couture. This dress is SO comfy and has one of my most favorite things… pockets! I absolutely love anything with pockets. I pictured 3 different ways you can wear this dress. Last night I wore it last with black boots and my black leather jacket because it was a little chilly! The taupe boots are from Charlotte Russe and I got them in-store not too long ago. I can’t find them on their website, but a store near you might still have them! 🙂

I’ve mentioned Dottie Couture in a couple of other posts, but seriously, this boutique is so awesome and I have to mention them again! I pretty much do the majority of my online shopping with them and have never once had a single hiccup. I even put the wrong shipping address on an order and they had it fixed within 5 minutes with a simple phone call. The girl on the phone was really sweet and super helpful too! I have moved a lot throughout the years so my shipping address is always changing. I have put the wrong address on a couple of different orders from other online stores and it was a HUGE hassle to track down and get my packages. It was nearly impossible to get in contact with some of these stores and the only point of contact was by email. Not a fun experience to say the least. Also, Dottie always has fast and free shipping within the U.S. and they always send tracking updates.

Here are a few of my favorite new arrivals from Dottie:

Yesterday we decided to go on a little family picnic with some chicken noodle soup. My mom has been making this soup for as long as I can remember and it is absolutely amazing! Now that the sun sets so early, we barely made it to the park before dark after I got off of work. The pups had a blast chasing each other, while we ate our soup, and enjoyed each others’ company. Nala tries SO hard to keep up with Layla and sometimes does a couple front rolls when she looses her footing (it’s hard not to laugh lol). Nights like these ones are definitely my favorite. It is almost impossible for us to get a picture with all 4 of us looking and being still, but we managed to get some okay shots. The vest I’m wearing is from the same site I linked, however they are currently sold out of it in brown. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the chicken soup recipe below! Happy Chicken Soup for the Soul Day! 🙂


WHAT YOU NEED:

4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts

3 Whole raw carrots chopped (optional)

12 oz Ribbon egg noodles

4 Cups chicken broth

1 can Cream of celery soup

1/2 Tsp Cayenne pepper / salt / pepper

STEP 1: Boil chicken breasts and carrots in big pot of water (about 20 mins).

STEP 2: Cut boiled chicken into pieces, set aside (leave carrots in pot).

STEP 3: Add 4 cups chicken broth to the water that the chicken was boiled in; cook noodles in that water.

STEP 4: Once noodles are cooked, mix in can of cream of celery soup.

STEP 5: Add cut up chicken, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to taste.

ENJOY! 🙂

I am definitely mad for plaid this fall! After we shot this outfit, we decided to go check out the Pearl Brewery Farmer’s Market. If you haven’t checked it out yet, I highly suggest you do! It was our first time going and it was the perfect little day date. We assumed that because it is a farmer’s market, pets wouldn’t be allowed, but when we got there several people had their dogs.  The market has a bunch of different vendors, live music, and delicious fresh food and drinks. I got a blueberry lemon filled coffee cake ring, as well as a freshly squeezed lemonade, and it was amazing. Tyler got a chicken florentine crepe that we split. It was a perfect, cool morning, but it started to heat up as noon approached so I decided not to wear the hat or vest.

The dress is sold out, but Dottie has a similar dress that comes with a belt AND it’s on sale! Who doesn’t love a sale?! The dress is originally $56 and is on sale for $30. They also just added a Similar dress and it is very cute! This vest is a must for your wardrobe. It is lined with faux fur and is seriously the softest! You can wear it with almost any outfit and is perfect to layer on those chilly days. The hat is another must for your wardrobe, as it adds statement to almost any outfit. Even if you think you can’t pull off hats, I would try this hat out. I have never personally been a hat person, but once you find the right hat and angle, you’ll fall in love. The boots are one of my favorites. I got them when Charlotte Russe was having an amazing sale: buy one pair of shoes, and get the second for $10. I got another pair of the same value, so I got these amazing boots for only 10 bucks!! They are also currently available online for $25. I highly recommend shopping at Charlotte Russe for your shoes. They always have amazing deals and adorable shoes. Currently all of their shoes are $25 or less! I like to wear boot socks with my “knee high boots” because my knees look a little funky and squished. The ones I’m wearing are currently on sale for less than $2, and are extremely soft and comfy.

I am really loving anything Olive colored for the fall. This vest is seriously SO soft and really durable. It was one of those online purchases that I opened up and thought, “WOW this is great quality and worth every penny.” When buying clothes online, it can be hard to tell the quality (especially if it is a store you have never shopped at before), but let me just say that EVERYTHING I have order from Dottie Couture Boutique has been above and beyond my expectations. 

This vest is currently sold out, but they do ‘re-stocks’ on popular items if they can. I’ll be sure to let y’all know when the vest is back in stock! The top is also from Dottie Couture, but it has sold out as well. It is one of the softest shirts I have ever owned! I even added the picture Tyler snapped of me mid-shot running up to him to make him feel how soft it was. 

The top from the link I posted is also from Dottie, and is pretty much the same color, but is loose fitted at the bottom. The black jeans are from Forever 21 and are less than $8; literally a steal! I got the booties last year from Dottie so they aren’t for sale anymore, but I linked a similar pair that they are currently selling. 

Be sure to check back tomorrow morning for another Halloween themed post! Thanks for reading 🙂
