I shared bit of this look last Monday for the Well-Kept giveaway, but since today is the last day to enter and I never shared the full outfit, I figured we should re-visit! Plus, I need to talk about these boots, as I promised! (Enter Giveaway Below!!!)
These boots are part of the Altuzarra for Target collection, and I just knew they’d probably be super uncomfortable or cheap looking, but for me they actually turned out to be perfect. As I mentioned last week in my Faux Fall post, I made one order for this Target + Altuzarra collection, but after seeing several bootie instagrams, I had to go back for them too. I didn’t see the reviews saying to go up a 1/2 size until after I ordered them. Fortunately for me they turned out to fit perfectly. My verdict is that if you have normal to narrow feet, you’ll be ok with your normal size. If you have slightly wider feet you’ll want to go up a half size.
Normally a nearly 5 inch heel in a bootie is not my preference. I feel like in the fall and winter you should get a bit of a pass and be able to wear a lower heel bootie (like this Sole Society pair I’ve been wearing). But in this case, they really are so do-able that the 5 inch heel doesn’t bother me at all. In fact I did a photo shoot yesterday in Piedmont Park (coming soon to blog) and we were walking all over and I was ok. Let’s be honest I wouldn’t have wanted to spend the whole day walking in them around the park, but 1 hour didn’t kill me and most 5 inch heels would!
What’s that you say? You’re waiting for them to go on sale? I get it – I usually shop the Target collections once they go on deep discount! If you’re in that boat, I’d say pin them now, shop ‘em later, and you better believe I’ll letcha know the second they go on sale. Heck I might buy another pair then.
Final words on these boots. I saw someone describe them as “witch boots” and it kind of made me like them even more. Hello, Halloween in coming up. #DoubleDuty

Welcome to Week 2 of Atlanta Style Series | Fall Edition! Last week we all rocked our favorite boots – definitely a fall essential! This week it is all about the denim, specifically DL1961 denim.
Jeans: DL1961 “Instasculpt” Florence Jean in Pinot c/o, Boots: Altuzarra for Target (OBSESSED – closer look at them coming tomorrow), Cape: H&M last year – last seen in January here - but very similar FAB option here, Shirt: Tibi, Bag: Valentino, Sunnies: Coastal.com c/o
Lucky for you, I happen to be a little bit of a DL1961 denim expert. I have their “Emma” jegging in 3 colors, plus a variety of other styles, ranging in white, black, green (seriously), dark denim, to boot cut, skinny, you name it! (And I am a self-proclaimed non-denim person, but that changed when I first met DL a couple of years ago.) The ones we are wearing today however are part of their new fancy “instasculpt” collection. What does instasculpt mean exactly? Well, I’m taking it to mean that I can continue to skip my post-fashion-week workouts. Just kidding. (
No I’m not.) It actually means that these jeans are made with a new 4-way stretch technology that will adapt to your body shape but never sag or get baggy. Honestly I already thought my DL’s were fantastic at that, these (in my opinion) just are a little bit more soft stretchy instead of rigid stretchy. Does that make sense?
Since this is hard hitting journalism I got out all of my DL’s and looked at the material breakdown. These have less cotton than my trusty DL’s and more modal. Hence, why these are a little more soft. Long story short – I love all my DL’s but these I’ll probably be living in for a while because they’re so soft yet still look fabulous! Plus I love this “pinot” color so much. It pairs well with my Dolce Gabbana lipstick in “dahlia” too – perfect for fall! (It was a little worn off in these photos.) I must not be the only one that has discovered the fab deep plum “dahlia” color because it’s sold out at Sephora – it’s currently only available at Saks. Also, are you noticing a strong collar + cape trend on the blog this week? Once you start with the cape it’s hard to stop.
For local friends, your local fab’rik should probably already have these instasculpt styles or will be getting them very soon.
Thank you for stopping by today!! xo
My picks for other cute capes:

Dress: Altuzarra for Target, Cape: Asos (similar ones at bottom), Boots: Nine West last year, Bag: Valentino (similar), Sunnies: Coastal.com c/o, Earrings: Kendra Scott c/o, Double Ring: Kendra Scott c/o, Lips: Dolce Gabbana “Fire” c/o, Cuff: Brahmin c/o
I’ve decided a cape is the best way to deal with faux fall. Sure, it is officially FALL, but in Georgia it’s pretty hot in the middle of the day. A cape looks “fall” but provides very little warmth. Faux fall perfection if you will. This cape I scooped up earlier this year (previously seen here) but it is currently sold out so I listed several similar options below since a few of you asked from the instagram post!
In other news, this dress is Altuzarra for Target, and I’m LOVING it. It was the item I threw in my “cart” at the last minute just for fun and ended up being the item I liked more than the crane dress which is what I was originally dying for. (All the reviews say order a size up in that crane dress, a memo that I did not get, so mine was way too tight.) General thoughts on the collection though: 2 thumbs up. I also got the booties (which hadn’t arrived yet when I shot this outfit) but they are my FAVORITE. I passed on them when I placed my first order, but then I took to instagram to see what everyone else got … and #PeerPressure everyone’s boot photos kind of sold me. Thanks instagram friends! So yes, I went back and ordered them. Of course you can’t just buy one thing at Target, even when shopping online, so I caved and bought the double pearl earrings. Duh. They’re sold out now so here is the similar pair everyone is scooping up!
Will you be visiting CapeTown during Faux Fall as well? Hope to see you there!

I love my iPhone. Have I mentioned that lately? Don’t we all love our phones?
One thing I currently cannot live without, in addition to my iPhone, is my Well-Kept. If you aren’t familiar with this handy little tool, allow me to introduce. Well-Kept is a screen cleaning towelette company that will keep all your gadgets and glasses sparkling clean. I first heard about Well-Kept probably 2 ish years ago shortly after it launched and have been a
n addict huge fan ever since. I mean, how often do you hear the “your phone is dirtier than a toilet seat” trivia? Eww. But seriously, it is. (The average person unlocks their phone 110 times a day – and think about all the door handles, hand shakes, credit card transactions, etc you encounter in between!! Ick.)
Once you get it, you get it. Your phone is a disgusting little breeding ground for all kinds of lovely germs. No, germs won’t kill you, but do you really want a cocktail of bacteria next to your face? Hello cell phacne. Fast forward to now, and I actually do the social media for Well-Kept in addition to being a full-fledged Well-Kept junkie. I’m not a germaphobe, but I do prefer my sunglasses & cell phone without that awkward film of grime, makeup residue, and germs.
Today I have partnered with Well-Kept to round up 19 of my favorite bloggers to bring you a fabulous prize of $200 and a year supply of Well-Kept! Amazing! Make sure to follow everyone via Rafflecopter below, and if you complete all the entries below, you’ll actually unlock more entries!

You guys! Atlanta Style Series is baaaaaaaack! We are kicking off our fall series today with boots of course. What else would we kick off fall with? Boots are one of the best things about fall. I love that the four of us all went with totally different boot-wearing styles. A dress plus short booties. Check. Skinny jeans + cute top with knee-high boots. Check. Pencil skirt + tee with knee high boots. Check. Shorts + Blouse with booties. Check. Tons of options!
We are all wearing Sole Society boots in today’s post, and you can find the pair I’m wearing here. While the temperates certainly aren’t feeling like fall just yet (and it isn’t technically fall until next Tuesday), it does feel a little silly wearing summer’s sandals in mid-September. I think a mid-heel bootie like this is the perfect transition piece to wear throughout faux fall and into real fall fall. Know what I mean?
Top: Zara, Shorts: fab’rik, Booties: Sole Society c/o, Clutch: Gigi New York, Sunnies: Coastal.com c/o, Bracelets: Brahmin c/o, Charming Charlie c/o, Stella and Dot, Rings: Cartier Love, and Onecklace c/o, Necklace: Poppy Style c/o
