Fall Booties

Happy Friday, everyone! Bootie season is finally here and there are so many fun styles that are out right now! Shopping for the perfect fall bootie can be a challenge and a bit overwhelming sometimes because of the several options available. I wanted to share some of the styles that I am currently loving:

Bronze Bootie: More like bronze beauty! So on trend right now. Love the pointed toe and block heel!
Studded Bootie: Rocker chic! I need these in my life ASAP!
Open Toe Bootie: I wear these on repeat! Can't get enough!
Leopard Bootie: Yes, please! Because everyone loves a pop of leopard!
Moto Bootie: So cool and comfy! They also come in black!
Black Bootie: Simple and classic. This is a must-have for your fall wardrobe.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Dress | Booties | Bracelet | Necklace

The weather here in Houston is so (insert eye roll)!!! One day we have nice cool weather and the next day we are in the mid 90's. My outfits have been all over the place! A cozy sweater one day and a summer dress the next! Anyways, I thought I would go ahead and share some of my recent outfits that I posted over on Instagram (@marssaunders).

As you can see from the photos above, I wear this gold necklace EVERY DAY! It is actually a chocker and a necklace that I layer and the little round plate says "Avi Bella" on it. It just means so much to me and I love how I can wear this necklace with anything. Another item you will see me wearing a ton are these booties. I love the short heel and the color is a great neutral that can be paired with any outfit!

I'm so excited it's Friday you guys. I am actually having a "girls night" with some of my friends tomorrow and I am thrilled! It has been a while since I have had a night out with my girls! I also have plans to take my little ones to a fun costume party in my neighborhood. We don't have any costume ideas yet so I will have to come up with something cute last minute (thank goodness for Pinterest). I always do this!

Sweater Weather

{click on photo below for details}

I woke up to cooler temps today so I did a little online sweater shopping and I am loving what I saw! Statement sleeves and ruffles, oh my! The sweaters this season are quite eye catching!

I found this pretty ruffle sleeve sweater and I couldn't believe it was only $44 (plus 20% off)! I also purchased this rust colored chenille sweater that would pair well with distressed denim and brown booties. I did splurge on one sweater but I have been wanting this for quite some time so I had to grab it when I saw that it came back in stock. This chunky cardigan looks so cozy and I plan on wearing it with my favorite leggings and wedge sneaker booties (obsessed) for a casual look.

Hope you are enjoying your week so far. I'm going to grab a cup of coffee, throw on a comfy sweater and enjoy this beautiful weather!

Sleeveless Sweater Dress

Dress: Francesca's | Handbag: Chanel (similar) | Boots: Marc Fisher | Bracelet: Kendra Scott | Ring: Kendra Scott | Earrings: Kate Spade | Lip Color: Napa LipSense

Hello and Happy Friday! I'm so excited for the fun filled weekend we have planned. Tonight we are having movie night and will watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and munch on junk food. Tomorrow I plan on shopping for fall decor to decorate my front porch (post coming soon!), and on Sunday I'm having my girlfriends over to drink prosecco and let the kids play outside on the bounce house (best investment ever!).

Unfortunately, we still have summer-like weather here in Texas so dressing for fall can be a bit tricky.  There is a cute store that I LOVE shopping at nearby called Francesca's and I found this sleeveless sweater dress that I thought was perfect for this weather. I also love the color! I paired it with my new favorite boots (so comfy) and a matching bag. I threw my hair up in a high pony because I didn't want to cover the pretty little ruffle neckline details.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Pesto Chicken and Tortellini with Veggies

I have been making this tortellini dish weekly and I had to share the recipe with you all. It is a quick and easy meal to make and every one loves it!

I typically purchase all my ingredients from Trader Joe's and I love their Pesto alla Genovese (basil pesto).

Everything is cooked in one pan which is great because it requires less clean up after eating this wonderful meal!

- Olive oil
- Cubed Chicken Breast
- Uncooked tortellini
- Sun-dried tomatoes
- Asparagus
- Cherry tomatoes, halved
- Basil Pesto
- Salt

1. Add olive oil to heated large skillet. Add chicken breast and season with salt. Throw in a couple of sun-dried tomatoes and cook everything until chicken is fully cooked (5-10 minutes on medium heat).
2. Remove chicken and sun-dried tomatoes and place on a separate dish. Leave left over oil in the pan.
3. Trim the ends of the asparagus and add to the skillet. Season with salt and cook thoroughly. Once cooked, move to a separate dish (I use paper plates).
4. Cook tortellini according to instructions on package and drain.
5. Add the chicken back to the skillet and coat with the basil pesto. Stir until chicken is reheated (about a minute or so).
6. Place chicken, tortellini, and asparagus on a plate. You can add more pesto and salt if desired.
7. Top with cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
