Get Ready With Me #MyCatStreetStyle (+ giveaway)

Autumn is officially here and I couldn't be more excited. In celebration of this season I've collaborated with Cat Footwear to create this fun video of me styling an outfit wearing a fabulous pair of Megs Plaid booties from their fall/winter 2014 collection.

I haven't done a video on my YouTube channel in probably a year, so this was a great opportunity to get back into it. Look out for more videos in the near future once I'm done setting up my home office!

Life is Short

Top: c/o Glitter Guide for eLUXE | Skirt: Banana Republic (LOVE this one) | Earrings: gift | Purse: Rebecca Minkoff c/o eLUXE | Flats: Jessica Simpson | Bracelets: c/o Alex and Ani

Okay, you caught me. I know my top says, "Life is short, wear sequins", and I'm actually not wearing any in this outfit. But I really wanted to make the text pop by pairing it with a gold and beige skirt, and gold, printed flats. There is a little bit of print-mixing going on, but it's super easy to implement (even if you're afraid of it).

I'd definitely describe this look as comfy-chic. Though I'm wearing a skirt and flirty purse, I've kept it a bit more relaxed with the graphic tee and flats. This outfit can be worn to the office, depending on how your work is regarding tees, and you can just as easily go out with your girlfriends later in the evening (did someone say happy hour?). 

If you are visiting to see where my wedding countdown is at... well, it's officially THREE weeks away! I'm stressing like a mad woman and my bridezilla radar fluctuates throughout the day. I'm trying to enjoy the last-minute planning and pre-wedding festivities as much as possible, so I truly apologize for not blogging as much. Once it's over and done with, I'll be sad, but I can't wait to begin writing again! So much to catch up on with you all.
