Adora-Bell Sleeves


Hello Friday.
Can you believe tomorrow is October? I honestly don't know what to make of it. I'm clearly ready to jump into my favorite season, but I'm still trying to adjust to the changing of the seasons. And by that, I mean switching from iced coffee to hot coffee. Ha ha. Kidding. Not that I really need a reminder that summer is over because even though we've had a couple of cool days here and there, there's always that one day where it's still hot outside and I question if summer really left. *insert eye roll emoji here*

I wore this fun tee shirt with bell sleeves that make me feel like a bat in downtown Raleigh the other weekend. My favorite part is walking down the street or watching the wind pick up, and the sleeves just instantly "do their thing" and flutter by. Not only that, but it's also a white tee, which is probably the most comfortable top you can opt for while still trying to be stylish. Double win.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

OTK Boots Under $100...


If you've been following my blog for a while, you probably know that I pretty much lived in these OTK boots last fall / winter. The best part is that they're back in stock and under $100. Quite a steal, if you ask me!
Just a fair warning: I'm 5'2", and these boots just barely cover my knees. Just how I like it. But if you're taller, I would recommend sizing up! 

This past Saturday may have been one of the hottest days yet, but I wore this look (with the OTK boots) the other weekend around 8 AM when the weather was around 68 degrees and pretty cool. I actually enjoy waking up earlier in the mornings to experience the few signs of fall. The weather is nice and cool with a breeze and it serves as a reminder that fall is well on its way. 
WELL. Hopefully soon.

P.S. can you tell I've been wearing a lot of wine / burgundy pieces as of late? Well here's another piece to add to the collection: this flowy dress is perfect for fall and... it's only $22. 

Hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

A New Season


I look forward to the beginning of fall more than anything. 
Even though the start of a new season doesn't change anything physically just yet, it's the thought and notion of being a few months away from all the holiday festivities and the end of... 2016. *gasp* But we're getting ahead of ourselves...

Lately, the weather has been a lot cooler, despite the many (many) rainy days we've encountered. I've worn my rain jackets on rotation this week and my poor Hunter boots can't seem to catch a break. Hopefully the weather will clear up this weekend in time for the football game on Saturday. 

I mentioned before in this post that you should probably own a blazer in your wardrobe for fall. I wore this simple look with boyfriend jeans in Raleigh the past weekend.

Good Sport


If you follow me on Snapchat (bygracelee), you probably get the sense that I come off more as a sporty / athletic person. When I'm not wearing dresses, skirts, or shooting blog outfits, I'm usually in workout clothes from my morning runs or getting a workout in at the gym. I'll even try to fit in sneakers in my day-to-day life because I'm not one to pass up comfort. Even though I sure do love my heels and beauty is pain... at times. But that's a different blog post.

Anyway, I love pairing my sneakers with denim skirts to give off a more sporty chic look. Not to mention, how perfect is this cobalt blue jacket that's only $24?! Also, I received this new denim skirt in the mail the other day, and will be shooting with it soon!

As much as I love my statement earrings, I've been taking a break from them and wearing ear crawlers and cuffs. I love this pair from Happiness Boutique. They offer free shipping as well as a customer reward program. And the best part? Happiness Boutique is graciously offering Gracefullee Made readers a 10% OFF DISCOUNT. Be sure to use code gracefulleemade at checkout! The code will only be valid until October 20th.
