Fall Hues to Love | Wine

As the leaves fall, the hues of the season get deeper as well. This burgundy/wine color below is the color of the season, taking over every store window I pass. This hue is so rich and looks great in patterns, texture, and my personal favorite… suede! There’s a definite 70’s vibe that this collection below gives me and I’m not hating it!

It looks great to go monochromatic with burgundy. I love look of the midi bodycon dress paired with the stacked heel boot. It’s simple and makes a statement. Or you could go more traditional and layer with the wrap coat or finish your look with the cozy jacquard knit cardigan. The point is, this fall hue is easy, no matter how you wear it! Check out my favorite fall pieces in this hue below!

It’s Getting Spooky! Wearable Halloween Trends

It’s officially October, can you believe it? What does October mean to you? To me, it’s about falling leaves, carving pumpkins, eating pumpkin flavored everything and picking out a bomb-ass halloween costume!!

These days, it’s apparent that halloween trends are shifting toward comfort and practicality. There has been a huge resurgence of adult onesies. Dinosaurs, unicorns, penguins, minions, you can seriously find whatever you want these days! And the best part about onesies? They are warm and comfy!

If your halloween day is spent in a more formal environment, a onesie could be totally out of the question. That’s why I pulled together some totally realistic halloween outfits you can wear in the day or night. Some are tees, some are accessories and some are tiny dresses. Lazy or not, there’s an outfit for everyone here! Pick your favorite and rock it this halloween!

Count Them! 10 Fall Must Haves | 2015

Are you ready for fall? It kind of snuck up on me! All of the sudden, I realized school is back in session and I’ve barely thought about what fall essentials I need. Boots, coats, jeans, accessories, there’s a ton of new trends out there this season and I’ve pulled together the top ten fall must haves that you’ve gotta have this season!

TOP TEN FALL MUST HAVES 2015
shop my top ten fall must haves:

1- Dainty Jewelry– Pretty, dainty gold jewelry add elegance and a finishing touch to your fall wardrobe. Try this geometric pedant ($14) or this personalized initial wire bangle ($28) to add a touch of glamour.

2- Blanket Scarf– These oversized wraps are not only on trend, but completely warm and cozy! Use this soft scarf ($39) to layer during the chilled autumn days and to cover up with at night on the couch!

3- Longline Vest– Tailored long vests and blazers are in every store I walk in this month. They add sophistication and clean lines to the bulky layering we usually go to this time of year. Start out simple by trying this black fitted vest ($50) with a basic tee and heels.

4- Ankle Booties– I wear ankle booties nearly every day of Fall. Why you ask? They are warm, comfortable and uber versatile. They go with dresses, jeans, shorts, tights, etc. I have heeled ankle boots and flat ones and I spread the love evenly among them. Try out these zippered booties ($28) for a good deal!

5- Draped Coat– Fall is that awkward time between no coat and full on parka. Beat the chilling temps by trying out one of this seasons draped robe coats ($60). They have a loose closure and a barely there look that’s perfect for this transitional time.

6- Sweater Dress– Pack up the sundresses. The rest of the year is officially about sweater dresses. Choose a  long silhouette, cable-knit, turtle neck or marled. It doesn’t matter because sweater dresses are in! I personally love this zippered sweater dress ($58), but I would also love to get my hands on a turtle neck sweater dress!

7- Wool Hat– Yes… I am still obsessed with beanies, but some days I just can’t have my hair sticking to my forehead. That’s where this polished wool fedora ($32) comes in. It will keep you warme while you are braving the elements without messing up your hair.

8- Turtle Neck– Thinking back to my young 90’s self, I really did not think I would squeeze my head through a turtle neck again. They always made my neck too itchy and hot! Now look at me, I want a turtle neck in every silhouette! This fall try a sleeveless turtle neck ($68) to keep you cool, save the sleeves for winter!

9- Bucket Bag– Bucket bags are here to stay this fall. I just love this fun, scrunched shape and the lightly structured silhouette makes it casual enough for everyday use. New to bucket bags? Try out this budget-friendly faux leather bucket bag ($60) first. It’s still good quality, but won’t break the bank.

10- Flare Jeans– Ohh flare jeans… how quickly you come back in style. Guess what? It’s fall and it’s time for you to get a pair of flares in your closet. I suggest some with some length so you can pair them with you favorite pumps or heeled boots. Try the trend out with these flare jeans ($30) or just dig in your closet to find a pair from your last bell-bottom phase!

I hope you are as excited as I am to embrace the season’s trends with these fall must haves!

Urban Nomad Trend | Fall 2015

My favorite season is upon us… fall! There is something about fall that is so darn cozy. It’s the apple cider, the falling leaves, the crisp autumn air and of course the pumpkin spice lattes! This season packs such strong emotions and memories that lure me out into the wild. Well maybe not quite the wild, but it lures me out of my apartment. And I feel it’s appropriate to dress like I’m going camping anyways, that’s where the urban nomad trend comes in!

I’m not sure what you wear camping, but I feel like plaid is definitely in order. Also, some layering pieces like this fur vest and this reversible quilted vest to keep you warm by the fire. Footwear not only needs to be practical, but also warm! Don’t these timberland wedges scream warm and comfy?! I’m dying for a pair! Lastly, top it off with a floppy wool hatplaid poncho for layering and some jewelry inspired by the wilderness itself. There you go, you have become an urban nomad.
