Fallen for Fall Lookbook






Asos Bow Mini Dress  |  Christian Dior Boots (similar here)  |  YSL Muse Bag  |

J. Crew Jacket  |  Akira Belt  |  Michael Kors Watch  | t+j Designs jewelry  |

Do you guys have those days where you’re just not motivated to blog?  I felt this way this last week; a bit tired, just not in the mood, and overwhelmed with other stuff.  What I do really appreciate?  All the nice comments and feedback I receive from this blog and such positive comments and purchases from our customer for t+j Designs.  It makes it all worth it and feels good that people are responding to what I am doing.  Blogging is more work than most people think and fellow bloggers are so great at supporting each other.  It’s a fantastic network of supporters and I am proud to be a part of it.   Thank you for your continued encouragement and it has been so great hearing from new readers as well!

What has excited me during this transitional weather change?  All the fall clothes and trends and changing up my wardrobe.  One trend I jumped on was the tie neck bow tie detail.  I love this Asos Bow Dress; jewel tone pink, easy fit, and flowy.  Asos is covering this trend at an affordable price and these are other dresses I love:

1.  Bow Shirt Dress in Galloping Horse Print

2.  Bow Dress with Gathered Cuffs

3.  Bow Dress with Spot Collar

I definitely recommend the dress I am wearing if you want a solid piece with the detail.  What’s great is that you can wear it with brown or black boots, a cute belt and a wool hat (as in picture #2).  The other options I’ve shown also have fantastic details; from the horse print, to the pretty pleats, to the adorable polka dot collar/tie detailing the black dress, each one is perfect for fall.  What do you think?  Are you loving this bow tie trend?

    It's okay that you are having an off week. That happens to the very best of us!Your outfit is absolutely gorgeous. (PS I love following your blog–you always look amazing). I LOVE the bow trend; I have ever since last year. Your dress in particular. Beautiful color, nice cut… I love the different versions you put down at the bottom as well. The horses are so awesome, as well as the pleats. I love them all but they are my favorite.CourtneyI Can Be Many Things

    This oufit is divine especially those Dior booties. This color is not common yet makes an even special pair. I LOVE it. All your accessories ate beautiful.I totally agree that comments are such a big motivating part that keep us blogging. I seriously would consider closing my blog long time ago if it is not because of interaction I get from a handful of blogger fellows that I have. You should definitely keep blogging because you have a great style and an awesome group of readers.

    Jen, I completely agree with you, especially if you put so much effort and passion in your blog. For me it's becoming a sort of second job after my (very demanding) full time work…but it's such a pleasure to talk about style and fashion with so many interesting people.I've always been a great supporte of the bow-style and I simply adore the colour of your dress.http://notjustaprettydress.blogspot.com/

    Pink is so your color. You look beautiful in that dress. Am also loving the bow trend. I have been eyeing an emarald bow blouse on ASOS. Love the Dior boots also. I agree blogging is so not as easy as it seems (that is if you want to give readers something worthwhile :)). I am glad to also provide my support for your blog and T+J designs.XoXo,Patiencewww.justpatience.com
