Happy Tuesday! The fact that it is already the second week of November is absolutely insane to me! I don’t know about y’all, but this falling back situation is kicking my tail. This past weekend was a whirlwind filled with a super late night with my college peeps, then a winery on Saturday and laundry day Sunday. While I absolutely love weekends that are jam-packed, having some time to relax is so important!

During a shopping trip a little while ago with my friend Chris, we were on a mission to buy some baby shoes for one of our best friends Katie’s baby Ansleigh. While Gap Kids is not a store I frequent…man was I excited we went in there that day. I ended up picking up these amazing rose gold metallic sneakers for under $40!!!!

Now, you may be thinking….Em, you are not a kid, why are you buying kids sneakers. However, I have the ultimate shoe hack for ladies with a smaller shoe size. I am a 6 1/2 or 7 in women’s shoes, which translates to a 5 in kids. That is right, you can purchase kids shoes. I can’t tell y’all how many times I have used this hack over the years. It is such a great option for those trendier shoe options, since some retailers make them in kids sizes as well as women’s. A fabulous way to cut a little bit of the cost.

Another trend I am loving almost as much as the sneaker trend, is the necktie scarf. It goes along the same line as the choker trend and I am loving every moment. As I’ve grown style-wise, my obsession with statement necklaces has surprisingly taken a backseat to these dainty and trendy pieces.

This may or may not become my travel outfit for heading home for Thanksgiving in a couple weeks.
