Fall Trend : The Faux Fur Vest


Dear faux fur vest, you are SO fun to wear. I'm very sorry I judged you last year.  
I remember seeing these vests everywhere last fall season and not really "feelin" the trend. This year I saw how popular they were again and decided to try one on just for fun. To my surprised, I loved it and it came home with me that day. Ever since then, I've found myself wanting to wear it over so many different pieces in my wardrobe......sweaters, long sleeve swing dresses, henley tops, etc. The fur detail just screams holiday to me, making it perfect for the upcoming season. Throw it over a sweater with jeans & booties like I did above for a girls wine night, or over a simple dress with tights for a holiday party.  Such a fun wardrobe piece to dress up any outfit!

Thanksgiving Day Outfit Ideas


I seriously cannot believe that this upcoming Thursday is Thanksgiving! I have to say that Thanksgiving is high on my list of favorite holidays not only because of the family time & delicious food, but because of my Thanksgiving Day outfit! I almost always have what I'm wearing for Thanksgiving planned out and ready at least two weeks before the actual day. You can call me crazy. That's ok. I call it organized.  I just LOVE having an outfit planned that is fashion forward yet comfortable & cozy for the big day. 
Are you the opposite of me and have trouble deciding what to wear for the Thanksgiving holiday? Well, I'm here to help and give you some good ideas!

I like to pull together an outfit that can be dressed up but also very comfortable at the same time. Let's be honest, no one wants to wear their super tight jeans on Thanksgiving Day. That's not fun. If you need to be more dressed up, I would go with a comfortable & neutral swing or shift dress like this one or this one that you can easily dress up with any jewels and a fun fall blanket scarf like this one here. (This is probably my favorite scarf as of right now! Great fall colors and such a fun pattern).
Here are some other fun scarf options here,  here, and here. Dress the outfit up with cable knit tights, like these ones from Jcrew and some heeled booties like these here. Not cold enough? Scratch the tights and wear some comfortable yet trendy over the knee boots.

Need a more comfortable outfit but still want to look fashion forward? Choose classic black leggings and an oversized sweater - options herehere & here. Pair it with either of the boot options pictured above and a fun patterned scarf and you have an easy pulled together look. 
Now you have some options! Still stuck? Pull up this photo for inspiration and go through your closet. You'll definitely be able to pull something together and I'm sure you'll look pretty amazing.

Wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving week!

Must Have Lip Colors For Fall


Well, it's clearly obvious through most of my beauty posts that I LOVE LIPSTICK.  I feel like it's a very simple way to add a pop of color to any outfit. Sometimes when I feel like wearing a neutral top, dress or sweater, I put on a bright lip to add some fun to the outfit.  I shared some of my favorite lip colors at the beginning of the year in this post here and some of them I'm still wearing on repeat. That just means I must REALLY love them. The colors I chose for this post are more geared towards fall and holiday and would be the perfect lip colors for your Thanksgiving outfit or holiday party dress. Enjoy!

The Perfect Poncho


We all have those days when tight clothing just doesn't sound like a good idea. Those are the days when I choose comfy black leggings and a loose fitting poncho or oversized sweater to wear. Super easy to dress up with boots and jewels to make you look very put together (even though you may not feel like it!) I've been spotting ponchos all over retail stores this season and when I found this one for under $25, I knew it was "blog post worthy". Long enough to wear with black leggings, a gorgeous olive green color, budget friendly, also comes in black and just fits perfectly.

Happy Friday! Everyone's favorite day of the week!
The other day someone asked me if I online shop for a living. I laughed out loud and responded with "Nope. I would say I online BROWSE for a living!" I'm constantly browsing new arrivals, seasonal styles and new trends because that is where I get a lot of my outfit inspiration. I've recently found some great styles & fall pieces, so I thought I would share them with you!

Let's start with this sweater. Super basic, a GREAT layering piece, comes in multiple colors and under $40. (Runs big. I have this sweater in an XS and LOVE it. Described in one word? COMFY). I've been loving layering sweaters or striped tees with this quilted vest, which I recently just purchased in grey. That grey vest with these burgundy booties is total fall outfit perfection.

The Simple "Not Too Short" Swing Dress


Swing dresses. So simple but sometimes so hard to find the perfect one. I love a good basic long-sleeve swing dress in the fall because you can wear it SO many ways. Wear it with tights and a big scarf and coat in colder weather. Wear it with no tights and simple booties in warmer weather. Throw a vest over it to add some character. The options are endless. One of my biggest problems when finding a good swing dress is the length. I don't like my dresses too short. OK. FINE. Call me modest but I REALLY don't want to bend down and flash the people around me. No one wants to worry about that!
