Nessa's World: September 2015





Fall is finally here! I am starting to shop for transitional pieces because in Texas we still have warmer weather. I think ankle boots are a perfect addition to any Fall wardrobe. Especially during this transition from Summer to Fall. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, shorts and leggings. Ankle boots are so versatile and it's hard not to find a cute pair. As a mom I am trying to find a bootie that is comfortable but will still gives me a little bit of height. I want it to have a little bit of a heel to help elongate my legs a bit. I am 5"1 and two or three inches go a long way for me. A lot of the boots that I have found while shopping have a western look to them and I absolutely love that. Fringe is huge this Fall and it truly looks fabulous on. Classic and simple are my favorite! I recently purchased a Steve Madden ankle boot in black and I am so crazy about them, but I really want a wine pair and a taupe pair. While I continue shopping for more ankle boots here are my top 5! Have you found the perfect ankle boot for Fall?? Happy Friday! XO

Our favorite time of year is finally here! It totally hit me yesterday when I realized the Texas state fair opens this week, I had my first Pumpkin spice latte this weekend and all of my shows are finally coming back. We recently took a trip to target and went crazy shopping in the dollar section for fall decor and accessories. This year is really going to be great. The fall spirit just has us in a great mood and we are so excited to start crossing off some activities/traditions from our Fall bucket list. I will make sure to share all of our adventures this fall so stay tuned. What's on your Fall bucket list? XO

Fall is basically here and if you know me, you will know that Freshly Picked moccasins are a wardrobe staple for my little guy. Evan has been wearing FP moccs for almost three years. He learned to crawl, walk and is now running in his moccasins. If you own a pair for your little one you know how amazing they are. We recently started purchasing other shoes for Evan, but Freshly Picked are by far our favorite. They are so soft and comfortable. Evan never complains about his moccs being too tight and he never shows signs of discomfort. The reasons to love Freshly Picked are endless. Learn more about Freshly Picked HERE

I originally found Freshly Picked on Instagram. Once I saw them I knew I would purchase multiple pairs for Evan. They are genuine leather and made in the USA. They range from size 1 to size 9, and size 0 (crib moccs) are available in select colors. We are currently obsessed with Red Rock from the Utah Collection. I think it's perfect for Fall and looks great with denim.

Weather in Texas can be so crazy. Especially when transitioning from one season to another. We keep it casual until it gets cooler then we can add accessories like vests, tights and beanies. Fall is by far one of my favorite seasons and finally being able to dress Evan is something other than a t shirt and shorts is a wonderful feeling. We decided to try on a few outfits to show you how you can style Freshly Picked Moccasins this Fall. Plaid and Denim are by far my favorite trends, and then that fringe on the moccs just ties the outfit together.

One thing that is on my grocery list every few months is air freshener. We run out so fast because that unwanted smell always comes back. I have tried Buddha Fresh for a little over a month and have absolutely been loving it. Buddha Fresh is an Eco Friendly Air Freshener made out of 100% Bamboo Charcoal. It serves as an all natural deodorizer and air purifier. It absorbs odor, bacteria, harmful pollutants and allergens to naturally purify the air and remove those unwanted smells. I am all for anything that is Eco friendly. Most air fresheners are full of toxic chemicals that only mask the odor, unlike Buddha Fresh no chemicals are needed and the results are outstanding. It's also really neat that each Buddha Fresh bag lasts up to two years.

Most mornings I wake up with a stuffy nose and horrible allergies. When I received Buddha Fresh I hoped that in some way this would help. After a few days I noticed a huge difference. There was no funky or musty smells in my room but most importantly I woke up without allergies. I am really enjoying it so far and I may not stop purchasing scented products like candles, but I'll definitely add more Buddha Fresh bags around the house. Overall it's a great product. The price is reasonable and great quality. I can tell a lot of hard work and love was put into this product. Check them out here and let me know what you think! XO
