These ladies are all explemplifying everything that is so badass about neutrals, right?  Color me smitten, I can’t get enough!  I’ve rounded up some of what I consider to be netural essentials below.  I am seriously considering building my entire closet this year around neutrals and throwing in little pops of color via accessories.  Hope you love!  And before I go, I want to thank you all for the amazing comments on Friday’s post and for sharing your own stories with me.  As always, I’m humbled that such an amazing group of women are reading A House in the Hills!  Thank you.  xx- Sarah

Oh hey now, another outfit post with lots of neutrals!  Yes, I know.  A one trick pony, of sorts.  But it’s Fall and I’m feelng it.  So just get on board with me, ok?  It’s a neutral party and we’re all invited!  While we’re here, lets talk about these tan suede booties, shall we?  They’re from Sole Society, which I just recently discovered.  Genius!  It’s really a lifesaver as I try to curb my style spending to save for our house decorating.  Spoiler Alert: house update coming very soon!!   xx- Sarah {more after the jump}

I decided to dress down the sweet girliness of the Beau bag with some neutrals and a menswear inspired tuxedo blouse. I’ll never tire of black and tan, it’s just classic and timeless, don’t you think?  And with this look the bag takes on a whole new style, which I love.  Lastly: my belly was not invited to this shoot, I’m not sure why she decided to make an appearance.  Just wanted to get that out in the open.  I do not condone these faux leather pants with a belly peeking out- it’s a faux leather faux pas!  Ok now, you all have a great day.  xx- Sarah
