Weekending – Finally Starting to Feel Like Fall

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Monday.  I know talking about the weather is filler conversation but when it finally cools down and the humidity subsides in FL, we get excited.  I have tried to buy high quality staples that will last multiple seasons.  Then add a few trendy pieces that don’t break that bank.  This weekend was spent organizing and getting ready for the next few months.  I have a feeling this holiday season is going to fly by.  Let’s get into a few fun snaps from the weekend, linking up with B.

Before we dive in, did you know the Rebecca Minkoff sample sale is going on right now?  I have never seen her prices marked this low!  I am in love with this moto crossbody.  Check out this gorgeous jumbo burgundy number.  If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a Mini Mac this is the time, seriously it’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen it marked.

Cheers to the Weekend

Friday, I was off of work.  If you follow me on snapchat (@meetatthebarre) you probably were clued into that.  When I’m home I love snapping products and everyday life pics.  It’s so much easier to take a quick 10 second video of why I’m loving a certain product instead of having to style it pretty.  Am I right?

Saturday we headed over to Universal to take advantage of our Annual passes.  The new NBC Sports Grill opened in City Walk and I absolutely recommend it if you want to catch a game before going into the park.  The food was excellent and pretty reasonably priced.  I also liked that they have open air dining.  The weather was just glorious this weekend.  Humidity gone.  We headed over to the park and I had to get a shot inside of the London phone booth.  Usually it is so crowded but for once nobody was around it.Diagon Alley Universal Studios

Over to our favorite part of the park.  I am telling you, every time we go, we find new details that we didn’t see the last time!Diagon Alley in Universal Studios OrlandoGringotts Bank Diagon AlleyDiagon AlleyOwls inside Diagon AlleyDiagon Alley OrlandoDiagon Alley UniversalInside Diagon AlleyWeasley ShopDobby the ElfGringotts

Even though we were stuffed from lunch, you know I can always find room for ice cream.Harry Potter Ice Cream Time

We made our way over to the main attraction which was the concert.  I’m not going to lie y’all.  I was pumped to see Jason Derulo.

Jason Derulo ConcertHe was beyond impressive.  Even Mark was blown away.  He can sing, his dancing is incredible and we were throughly entertained the entire time.  His entire crew was on point.  The DJ got the crowd going, his dancers were mind blowing and he barely took breaks the entire time while singing and dancing non stop.  His workout routine must be killer to keep up with that kind of stamina and endurance.  Naturally I snapped like a crazy person the whole time.  If he is ever in your home town, I highly recommend checking him out.

Sunday was spent prepping for the week.  Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?  I have been getting my black Friday sales guides ready for you.  Don’t worry.  You won’t need to leave the comforts of your comfy pants and unwashed hair.  Plaid Target ScarfIn the meantime. I insist you go to Target and get this blanket scarf.  Sale at Target currently right now is buy one get one 50% off.  So you can totally add this reversible one to your cart or this beauty.  See, I’m making your holiday shopping so easy!

Fall BootiesI have wanted grey booties for the Fall and these are on point.  They are comfortable and run true to size.  Find them here.  Similar pair on major sale here.  Mid range here and here.  Budget friendly under $40 here.

Last.  I have been watching a fringe purse forever.  Even though the trend is definitely here to stay, I wanted to find an affordable option.  Well, I finally found it here.  You can use it as a clutch, or attach the strap and use it as a crossbody or shoulder purse.  The color goes with everything.  Every single time I sport it, I get asked where to find it.  It is by Violet Ray and all the pieces are made in the USA in New York.  Check out the line.  It was hard just to pick one!

Violet Ray Fringe Purse. Affordable fringe purse.I also swapped out my sunnies again for these fab Karen Walker ones.  Have you checked out DITTO yet?  Unlimited designer sunglasses for $24 a month.  I am now on my third pair in a month.  The shipping is free on both ends.  They send you out a new pair, then just put your current pair in the box, use the pre paid shipping label and enjoy your latest designer glasses.  So far I’ve had Derek Lam, Rayban and now Karen Walker.  Completely seamless and great customer service.  Try your first month for free with the code MEETATTHEBARRE.  Which ones would you try first?

Make sure you check back tomorrow, I have 5 products that I have been using on major repeat and I’ll have all the details for you.  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

    So sad I didn’t make it to HP world when I was down in Orlando, I hear it is quite amazing. And I’ve only heard great things about JD in concert, he is uber talented! Love your nail color, I’m rocking a more greige version today.

  2. November 16, 2015 / 6:20 AM

    I am so freakin’ jealous of your passes to Universal and getting to go to Harry Potter!!! I WANT TO GO THERE SO BAD! Yay for the humidity finally letting up too! Hopefully it stays that way ;) x

  3. November 16, 2015 / 6:27 AM

    oh Jason Derulo – I would seriously sing his name anytime I see it or read it lol! Sounds like a wonderful weekend…I can’t believe how often you guys make it to Orlando – that pass is amazing!!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I would love to go to HP world, how awesome is that! I also love that pink pillar and wall in the background ;)

  5. November 16, 2015 / 7:01 AM

    Don’t tell me about another sale!!!!! I’m not listening!! haha
    Loving those boots in the first photo. And I’m totally jealous that you get to go to Harry Potter–I haven’t been but have heard it’s awesome! Looks like a great weekend overall–glad you were able to bust out some Fall clothes this weekend!

  6. November 16, 2015 / 7:20 AM

    I’m pretty much obsessed with Moscow Mules lately <3 Looks like a great weekend!

  7. November 16, 2015 / 7:38 AM

    I am completely swooning over that copper mug. I wanted to pick one up this weekend… found a set at Home Goods. $15/each!! AND AT HOME GOODS, EVEN!? I was flabbergasted.

    Anyway, that was besides the point. Your weekend looks like an absolute blast!

  8. November 16, 2015 / 7:48 AM

    That Violet Ray bag is so fun and looks like such great quality! I will 100% pay a little more for something made in the USA, so I love that this is a domestic made option!

  9. November 16, 2015 / 8:41 AM

    So intrigued by Ditto! I am so bored with my current pair that I have had for over two years! And I have always wanted to try Karen Walkers out! I picked up the same scarf at Target–such a steal!

    Every time you head to Universal I think about how I want to take a trip and go there with the kiddies! Soon… Soon! Grey booties are on point, I love my pair because they go with everything. I saw Bruno Mars at a Fashionably Loud event back in 2011 and was so not thrilled to see him in the ticket… But that man took the stage and was AMAZING. He played his own instruments, danced and sang better live than on the radio. I bet Jason was like that, huh?

  12. November 16, 2015 / 9:00 AM

    Jason Derulo kind of reminds me of Usher! I think that he is really good and I want to know what his workout consists of. Speaking of, I read that he taught a cardio class at a gym. Could you imagine walking into that class? Haha. LOVE that burgundy RM bag, your fringe bag is fab, and love that plaid scarf!! It also looks like you had a fun weekend too. I’m glad! I hope that you have a lovely day today too. :-)

  13. November 16, 2015 / 9:20 AM

    Looks like such a fun weekend! Checking out the Rebecca Minkoff sale now. Also so exciting that you saw Jason Derulo…he sounds like he gives a great concert! I hope you have a great week!

  14. November 16, 2015 / 9:37 AM

    I’m dying to visit the new Harry Potter park! We went two years ago when it was under construction, and I’ve been meaning to make it back there! From the pictures, it looks amazing! It’s finally starting to feel like fall in Texas, so my fingers are crossed that it it’ll stay that way!

  15. November 16, 2015 / 10:17 AM

    So I Love Jason DeRulo. Love him. Looks like you had a fab weekend and so glad to hear the weather was treating your right!!

  16. November 16, 2015 / 11:02 AM

    I want to go to Harry Potter world so bad! Looks like a great weekend!

  17. November 16, 2015 / 11:40 AM

    Your trip to Universal looks amazing! I love that blanket scarf and nail color combo!!

  18. November 16, 2015 / 11:44 AM

    It was a gorgeous weekend to be outdoors! I’m loving our “Fall” weather. The Fringe purse is gorgeous. Can’t wait to hear about your thanksgiving sale recommendations. I haven’t even started shopping!

  19. November 16, 2015 / 11:59 AM

    Ahhhhh I want to go to Harry Potter world!!!! That concert looks like it was a lot of fun too! I need to get better about checking snaps. I think I only checked them on Sunday so probably missed a lot. I need to get to Target to get a blanket scarf….I am just trying to decide if I will wear it or not. I have several scarves that never see any wear because I hate things around my neck like that but I really want to wear them. The struggle!!!

    What a fun weekend, and all your photos are gorgeous! I need the deets on your new camera. I think I may have to get those booties for myself – I’ve been on the hunt for a gray pair!

  22. November 16, 2015 / 1:44 PM

    So jealous of your proximity to Harry Potter world – I will make it there someday! Great pics girl! Looks like an awesome time at the concert!!

  23. November 16, 2015 / 1:53 PM

    I am so jealous of Harry Potter World! I am dying to go and might just make the trip on my own if my husband won’t go with me! And loving that scarf, such a great print for the season.

  24. November 16, 2015 / 2:30 PM

    I get so jealous every time I see that you’re at Harry Potter World! I still have YET to go and am a huge HP nerd. Love those Joie botties you’ve been rocking ;)

    xo, Jen

I saw Jason Derulo in concert and he is so awesome, such a great performer and his dance moves are out of this world good! Loving those nails and that ice cream girl!

  30. November 17, 2015 / 7:20 AM

    I loved your snaps of the JD concert!! Looked like a blast. We are going to Disney in March… how far is that from you?!?

    I love that Violet Ray bag and the sunglasses are great too! It looks like you had a super fun weekend. I have not been to Universal in ages. I bet the NBC Sports Grill is a great place to watch a game!

  33. November 17, 2015 / 9:35 AM

    Universal looks like so much fun. Love that nail color. Perfect for fall.

  34. November 17, 2015 / 11:41 AM

    I so want to go to Hogwarts for a visit. :) I’ve heard it’s awesome. Target is on point with their scarves right now. Love that one! And it snowed here this weekend. I was bundled up at the game on Sunday like a marshmallow. Can’t believe you guys are just starting to cool down.

  35. November 17, 2015 / 6:26 PM

    So jealous you get to spend so much time at HP world! I have been dying to go– apparently they are opening one in Cali next year. And expect a snapchat follow from me soon :D

  36. November 17, 2015 / 6:53 PM

    I’m loving all the pics of HP world… I’d buy a yearly pass just for that alone! lol
