3 Outfits to Transition to Fall With

It's still sweltering around here, but I am ready to pull out my pre-fall attire.  I am ready to put away my bright pinks, greens and white in favor of navy, brown and grey.  Every September I long for the weather of the north.  Florida is stuck in 85+ degree weather, while the rest of the country get to feel the fresh fall air.  It makes me long with a place with four seasons... mostly for my wardrobe!  In honor of the weather I wish I was having, I have put together three light layered looks for late September.  I am also featuring one of my favorite fall totes from Tory Burch.  It is so versatile! 

What are you transitioning to fall with?

Apps That Will Save You Time & Money

I am all about utilizing technology whenever you can.  Like most people, I take my iPhone with me everywhere I go.  I use it for work, socializing, shopping and blogging.  Technology can really help you simplify your life and now a days it can also help you save money.  Loyalty programs are nothing new, but with technology they are a heck of a lot easier to keep up with and benefit from.

Starbucks | If you are a regular Starbucks drinker and do not use the app or Gold Card, you are missing out on major benefits!  The Starbucks app allows users to easily wrack up gold stars and earn free coffee or food... and who doesn't love FREE coffee?  For every twelve gold stars you earn at Starbucks, you will receive a free coffee or treat (this even includes a Venti!).  The app also allows you to manage gift cards, keep up with your Gold Card balance and rewards, reload your cards, pay within the app and receive free daily downloads! Wow! The benefits from this FREE app are huge! I have found some pretty cool apps through the free daily downloads from Starbucks.

Target Cartwheel | Okay, I don't know how I just found out about this little joy, but my cashier at Target the other day let me in on this little secret.  Target Cartwheel will help you save BIG! I downloaded the app while standing in line and saved 25% off all women's apparel.  This saved me over $20 on my recent trip to Target… and they have deals on all kinds of items all the time.  It's so simple… take a picture of the barcode on the item you want to purchase and Cartwheel will scan their system for any deals!  It's so simple.  Spending an extra few seconds looking up each item you want to purchase will save you tons of cash in the long run.  Super simple and helpful!

Walgreens | Locate a store, print photos, find deals, refill a prescription… the Walgreens app let's you do just about anything you could ever need to do at Walgreens.  Not only does this app help you save money with the Balance Rewards program, but it will help you save tons of time when filling prescription.  Simply scan the barcode on your prescription and the app will do the rest.  Plus it will remind you to pick it up at your local pharmacy.  Oh and you can look up daily deals too.  So if you use Walgreens, what are you waiting for? Go download this app today!

Publix | Who doesn't love shopping at Publix, and the Publix mobile app makes shopping a breeze!  Create your weekly shopping list, look up weekly deals, order online and get yummy recipes.  I love ordering subs and picking them up right in the deli.  It makes lunch time orders so much quicker! Managing your weekly shopping list makes grocery shopping quick and organized.  Have you tried the Publix app?

Banana Republic | Shop Banana Republic from the palm of your hand.  Browse the latest arrivals from BR, scan product barcodes in-store to find alternative sizes or colors and email products you like to yourself or friends.  What could be better than one of your favorite stores in your pocket?

Fandango | Check the latest movie times, browse movie information and purchase tickets.  Fandango makes going to the movies simple.  Purchase your tickets and easily pick up at the kiosk!  Save yourself the hassle of standing in line and just go right in.  It's that simple.  

What are your favorite money & time saving phone apps?

Orange & Blue

College football kicked off this Saturday.  College football and basketball are two of my all time favorite past times.  When fall roles around, not only does cooler weather arrive, but so does a lot of fun!  In honor of my favorite time of year, I sported my favorite colors of fall, orange and blue, at work on Friday.  It really helped me get pumped for the big weekend.  Sadly, when Saturday rolled around, the opening UF home game was rained out.  Thousands of Gator fans waited for about three hours in hopes of seeing the Gator's play.  But, no such luck... all my loyal Gators will simply have to wait a few more days for some GATOR FOOTBALL! I guess I'll have to wear orange and blue again this Friday.

Orange: textured-stripe short // ballet flats // v-neck sweater // cami
Blue: pumps // bracelet // tank // dress // corduroy pants

Do you sport your team colors and support your school's team?
