5 pieces vol. 1

I find a lot of things easier to bear when you just break it down a little, especially numerically. Need to make 100 cupcakes . . . ok that’s only 8 pans.  Picking your outfit every day doesn’t have to be hard either, especially if you just break it down numerically. So I’m going to try something new here on the blog. A couple times a month I’ll show off an outfit – either on me or put together on polyvore – that features only 5 pieces. All you need is 5 pieces to design a stylish outfit. It’s easy as pie right guys. Which I’ve never understood that expression because pie crust is hard so pie is not easy unless you buy pre made pie crust . . . maybe that’s the point and I’ve been missing it all these years.

5 pieces 9-11

September is always a weird month weather wise. You never know if it’ll be hot or cold – is it summer or are we at fall now? I still say it’s summer and refuse to put out pumpkins until the end of the month, but there are days when the weather sure feels like fall. This is one of those outfits that are perfect for those transition days. Plus how awesome are the emerald accents. They’re awesome. Super awesome . . . that’s how awesome.

1. english factory plaid dress
2.  peep toe booties
3. reversible tote
4. kate spade emerald studs
5. watch

See easy as pie, just like I said. Let’s break down one more thing. I have the only – just the one – beauty blogger you’ll ever need. That makes it easy, right!? Lindsay knows her beauty business. And ya’ll, her home state – Kentucky – is right below mine – Indiana – so you can trust her. Lindsay brings her knowledge to you in such a fun, witty, down to earth way that makes her so relatable. I just know ya’ll will love her if you don’t already. Let’s hear what she has to say . . .


Hello! I’m Lindsay and I blog at Bourbon, Lipstick, and Stilettos. While I don’t consider myself a “beauty blogger” (I’m a bit too camera shy for that!), it is my favorite topic to discuss. I share my monthly favorites, an occasional tutorial, and thoughts on popular topics, while trying to maintain my sense of humor. I like to tackle tough subjects like maintaining positive body image, and am currently co-hosting a “Blogging Basics” series. I hope you’ll find there’s something for everyone!
