Happy Thursday y’all! Are you loving this short week? I am! Just one more day between us and another weekend. Woohoo! Anyways, I’m excited to start sharing looks from my recent trip to the mountains of NC and looks that are a little more fall. As I mentioned Tuesday, I’ll slowly be diving into fall style. While it might be right around the corner, several of us are still dealing with 80+ degree weather. Today I’m sharing two looks. Really one, with the change of some accessories. 

First, an easy slightly dressed up casual look. This white ruffle shirt is just about the sweetest thing ever, isn’t it? The feminine ruffles really take the shirt up a notch and give the traditional white button down shirt a girly twist! To me, the ruffles really elevate the top as well. Giving off dressier vibes. I wanted to keep this look neutral and slightly casual. A look you could easily wear out for a day date, to run errands, grab lunch with friends, or explore a new town. Therefore, I went with easy cut off shorts {y’all these are the BEST cut off I’ve ever worn and they’re a little highwaisted, which I LOVE} and the comfiest neutral flats

To take the look even more casual, I switched out my flats for boots. Also, my handbag for a backpack. Both are definitely more casual and also functional for exploring a new spot! While visiting The Lodge at River Run we ventured out to a couple of creeks/rivers. I’m not going to lie, I was basically a five year old splashing around.

Rain boots are honestly a must for your summer and fall wardrobe. One, so you can act like a child and splash around. Two, you’ll find yourself reaching for them quite often actually. They look adorable with dresses, skirts, shorts, and denim. Rain boots also help make the transition from summer to fall easier! They’re warm, functional, and cute. A total win!
