Olive Dress \\ Tan Booties \\ Necklace \\ Lip Color: Maybelline “Mauve It Up”
Do you ever want to just throw something “simple” on and call it a day? Yeah, that is how most days go for me when standing in my closet to dress for the day and today’s look is just that. All of today’s items are new items over at 7th & Park Boutique. Sometimes, simple is just enough to not overdue your style. Olive happens to also be my obsession right now. Great trending Fall color!! Lets also talk about how the loose fit is just what you need during these cozy Fall times. I am already thinking of new ways to style this olive dress with cooler temperatures. 🙂 Maybe a leather moto jacket over the top? Yes, please. As for booties, you can never go wrong with a pair of cognac suede booties, these are less than $40 (free shipping). And who doesn’t love dainty jewelry? I have a weakness for it all.
Now off to do some packing for our road trip next week! You can follow our trip on Instagram @mybrunetteadventureblog OR snapchat @seventhandpark

Yes, you read that correct, backpacks are back! As you probably have seen in many stores, using a backpack instead of your handbag is becoming a new trend. I know. I know. You may not love it, but it is a hit for me. I picked up this fairly inexpensive backpack from Target recently for some traveling that is coming up soon. It will work great for traveling or strolling in the city. The upside is my “big kid” camera will be able to fit in the backpack and not weight down my shoulder like it does with a normal handbag. I did look around for a while before taking this plunge to purchase this beauty. Who says beauty in fashion can’t be inexpensive? By the way, I passed it up the first time I saw it at Target and it was on my mind for weeks. I went back to Target with my husband so of course I told him I had definitely slept on it for weeks and was ready to place it in my cart! Plus using a gift card I had was a bonus.
I must add, this sweater is so cozy and was perfect for our date night Saturday when temperatures were a bit warmer, no coat needed! And who can say no to the color? I am a bit in love with all things olive colored. But not olives! Okay, enough about that before I get off on my many tangents. 🙂
Try out a backpack you love for those days you are traveling, hanging out at a theme park, or just strolling in the city. You can kept it cute while also keeping it functional. Yes, this backpack will be on my packing list for our vacation next month to the Caribbean.

Oh my readers I am back! I have been coming and going here on the blog lately, but I am hoping to turn things around here in the coming weeks. Today, I bring so many of my favorite pieces, but this bold green sweater made a bold statement for today’s comfortable look. Of course, it is still snowy and cold here in the Midwest, but I am not letting that drag down my outfit choices. I wanted some color in my look so today I chose this bold green sweater that has been waiting patiently in my closet for some wear. The sweater paired nicely with these oh-so-comfortable navy blue chinos. Other pieces I mixed into this look were some oldies, but goodies. What do you guys think of the bold green? Enough to have you also looking forward to brighter colors and spring? Try transitioning your winter wardrobe to spring by adding pops of color and brighter colors to those boring, dark color pieces in your closet. And how about that two-day hair? Well, it was in a side braid until right before the shoot I decided to take out the braid. A little natural looking wave for the win! This scarf is definitely a go to in very cold temps. Stay warm and check back for more posts this week. 🙂
