Outfit Inspiration: Tortoise & Pink

Any time I get to wear bright pink, I’m a happy girl.  Pair that with leopard or tortoise and I’m all set!  Sharing this fall outfit with you today.  All of these pieces can be easily switched out and paired with so many more favorites in your fall wardrobe too!



The Tippi Sweater (in neon geranium) has long been a favorite style of mine.  It’s a great weight, cut and can be worn alone or I sometimes size up to wear a buttondown (like this one) under it.  All colors are currently on sale with code: YESPLEASE.  I go up a size and wear a medium because I don’t like mine too fitted.


Because I’ve been wearing my Paige denim jeans this season, I completely forgot to pull out my toothpicks jeans.  Just like the Tippi sweater, I’ve worn this style for years and years.  I love the classic rinse on them and they don’t stretch out.  They’re a great everyday jean.  For sizing, they fit true to size.  Currently on sale too!  I love the leopard loafers that the model is wearing in the pic online, but unfortunately they’re sold out.


But I do love these flats just as much.  After all, leopard is a neutral, right?  I haven’t had a chance to try these on yet, for sizing, but based on reviews, they run a half-size big.  So if I’m usually an 8.5, I’d go with an 8 in these.  They’re selling out quickly and on sale too, so if you’re interested in these, don’t wait too long to order.


Every fall, I love pairing tortoise with just about every color – my favorites being pink and red.  This necklace would go with just about any sweater you’re planning on wearing this season.  A great piece that will never go out of style.


I’ve had these sunnies for over four years and love pulling them out every fall.  They’re a great classic size and style.  Currently 25% off!


Love the subtle stripe detail on this barrette.  Would look pretty whether your hair is brunette, auburn or blonde.


Planning on painting my nails this deep burgundy today.  A great hue for fall.


Kendra Scott just came out with these new studs!  Absolutely love how original they are!  The colors are beautiful too.  I have a feeling whatever the season, I’ll be wearing these year round.


Took this pic on the way back home yesterday.  It usually takes us about three hours to get home from Charlotte, but yesterday it took five hours.  Our power came back on Monday evening, so we knew then that it was okay to head home.  I was anxious to get back and see if our house had any damage.  Thankfully, our house  was completely fine!  Aside from having to completely purge our refrigerator since the power had been out for so long, that’s nothing compared to what others have had to deal with after the storm.  Many prayers for them.  The children are back in school today, after having a week off from Hurricane Matthew.  It was an unexpected long break, but I’m glad Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas took the necessary precautions to get everyone in coastal cities evacuated and away from the oncoming hurricane.  Here’s hoping that Matthew is the last one of the season!

Be sure and check out tomorrow’s post.  I’ll be sharing pics from this past week!

  1. Please do more posts like this! This is the kind of outfit that first drew me to your blog. I really miss outfits like this! Preppy, practical, and not an outrageous amount of money. I relate to this outfit so much more than the Mara Hoffman dresses or pricey cover ups.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I’ve grown to love the flowy feel because it’s easier to toss on in my busy life, and I just love the quality, soft fabric and length of those dresses and know I’ll wear them for years and years to come. But I’m working on wearing and posting more outfits like this I featured here. For the past year or so, I guess my previous favorite designers haven’t really debuted anything that’s caught my eye as much as Mara has. I want the pops of vivid colors in prints again, even J.Crew’s dresses haven’t really given me much inspiration. What happened to their classic scalloped dresses and comfy (not boxy) fit on shirt dresses? I miss all of Tory Burches colorful Revas and anxiously awaiting which colors she’d come out with each season. I know most designers will come around, but I know that’s what it’s all about. I’m always trying to find the best for myself and my style and most importantly, for my readers. If it’s an itchy fabric, too short, too see-through or doesn’t fit exactly right, I won’t post about it. Only the best for you! Thanks for reading, Kate!

  2. Never thought of the bright pink with leopard print, but it looks SO cute. Just ordered the pink sweater…thanks for the link 🙂
