I’ve always been a big fan of Fall fashion. After spending months in a swimsuit during the summer, I seriously crave sweater weather. There is something about curling up in a comfy sweater this time of year when the sun is going down just feels right. However, finding good Fall tops can be a little more difficult than finding good pumpkins.

Today’s blog post is sponsored by Evereve which is a contemporary brand that specializes in styling moms. Let me tell you a funny story about Evereve. I’ll fully admit, I actually had never heard of the brand before mid-August. My sister has a birthday in August and let my mom know that for her birthday, she would like a gift card to one of her favorite local stores called Evereve. She lives in Minnesota where Evereve was founded and is a mom of 3 kids. Well, being the shopaholic I am, I quickly Googled the store and found Evereve carries a ton of my favorite brands like Free People, Splendid, Paige Denim and Vince Camuto. I knew my sister was onto something.
So fast forward to a couple weeks ago, I was thrilled when Evereve reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them on a blog post. Of course I did based on what I saw. As it turned out, Evereve already had a store in Gilbert, AZ, which is about an hour away from my house. I decided that in order for me to really get to know the brand, I needed to make the trip to Gilbert and check out their store.
Well, last week I drove down to Gilbert and did a little shopping. I found the sweetest employees who could not have been more helpful, an entire store of clothing and accessories that are 100% my style, and a play table and goldfish dispenser by the fitting rooms for the kids. Evereve has it figured out. The selection was large, but not overwhelming, and everything was hand-picked for my lifestyle. Cute and trendy items that are perfect for moms. Yes, I found a bunch of brands I already know and love, but I was also really impressed with the Evereve private label brands (allison joy, peyton jensen and braeve).
After shopping around the store, I realized that the tops were calling my name. So I’ll stop blabbing on about my newfound love for Evereve and bring you my post about four tops all moms need for Fall.
#1 – A knit bell sleeve sweater. A good knit sweater is quintessential Fall fashion. However, add some bell sleeves and you are good to go for 2017. I’m in love with this burnt orange color, which makes me feel like I should be rolling in leaves. Not gonna happen since I live in the world of cactus, but it just feels like Fall. The lovely ladies at the Evereve in Gilbert brought me this sweater to try on straight off the delivery truck. It hadn’t even been tagged yet and was one of the newest Fall styles in their store. The second I saw it, I knew it had to be mine. The knit is soft and the style is super easy to wear. This exact sweater isn’t yet available online, but this ivory sweater is very similar.
#2 – A tie-front sweater. Knots are all over the place this year. I’ve seen them on everything from simple t-shirts to sweaters and dresses. However, this front knot sweater is one of my absolute favorites. There is something about the knot that makes it look perfectly styled, even though it feels like I’m wearing pajamas. And let’s talk about how soft this material is. I wore it to a movie with my kids last weekend with a bralette and leggings, but you could easily dress this one up with cute jeans and boots. It also looks super cute worn off the shoulder. If I could rate this sweater with 10 stars on the Evereve website, I totally would. It is that good.
#3 – A plaid bomber jacket. You guys know by now that I’m plaid’s biggest fan. But a plaid bomber jacket? This beauty was made for me. I’ll admit, last year I wasn’t on the bomber jacket bandwagon. But this little plaid piece of heaven is 100% my style. Yes, because it has a zipper it technically falls into the jacket category. However, the material is so super soft and lightweight that it feels more like a shirt to me than a jacket. I styled this jacket with a simple white tank and distressed black jeans, but I can see this one looking adorable over a cute dress as well. I also love it is only $58!
#4 – A velvet sleeve baseball shirt. A baseball shirt is fitting for my life right now. My son started coach-pitch baseball last month so we are now spending a couple hours twice a week at the ballpark. It is so stinking cute watching all these 5-7 year old kids going up to bat and loving every second of it. But being a baseball mom doesn’t mean I can’t look cute at the same time. This velvet baseball shirt is such a fun spin on the velvet trend. Sometimes a full velvet shirt or dress is a little too much for me, but velvet sleeves are just right. Plus my daughter couldn’t stop rubbing my arms.
In addition to the four tops above, I also bought this pair of jeans from Evereve. I tried them on in the store and was in love with the stretchy fit and casual wash. The amazing ladies at Evereve in Gilbert wisely suggested going down a size and I’m SO glad I did. They didn’t have my size in store so they ordered the smaller size to my house. They arrived last night and fit PERFECTLY. I didn’t have a chance to photograph them for this post, but if you are looking for casual jeans to go with all your Fall tops, order these. Plus they are on sale for only $60!
On top of the tops, I have some fun news for all my Arizona peeps. Evereve is opening a new store at The Biltmore in Scottsdale!! While I loved my experience in Gilbert, I’m so excited Evereve is opening a store much closer to my house. The grand opening is on October 11th and yours truly will be taking over the Evereve’s Instagram Stories that evening. I’ll be doing a number of little videos trying on my favorite outfits and showing you around the store. Evereve will also be offering 15% off your purchase from October 11-15.
