Me and my photographer had a blast doing this shoot (Thanks TT)! We took a ride down to the local farm stand and did some walking shots in between the rows of beautiful fall colored mums and picturesque apple trees. The weather was perfect and my outfit was super fall looking. This knit top came from Nordstrom last year. It is one of my favorite tops, but the quality of it is very poor. I have a very hard time not putting holes in it every time I wear it, and not to mention the fact that I cannot wear a necklace with it cause it will get caught! Finally getting to the point of wearing my knee-high boots again too… and these just might be my favorite ones!
I don’t think I talk often about my bracelets, so today I have a few words! I like to wear lots of bracelets together at a time, and this outfit was perfect for that since I couldn’t wear a necklace (have to pile on the femininity somewhere!!). I am totally digging Alex and Ani Bracelets. They are the hottest thing right now, and have completely overtaken New England. If you live outside of here, you may want to stock up when you visit, cause they will make it to your town eventually and will be an instant hit. This way you can be the cool girl who had one (or 5) before everyone else 😉 They can be found at the Paper Store, some jewelry stores and online at their site (link below).
This is one of my first fall looks! Some of the days this fall have been cooler, and some warmer, very “New England”, so outfits are all over the place! I am wearing my favorite trench coat in these shots. I saw this Cynthia Rowley beauty last year at TJMaxx, and knew it was a winner. The mixed media top I have on is by Olivia Moon, Mixed fabric is a huge trend right now – you see it often with leather as one of the materials. It is all over the runways, blogs, and fashion retailers (good stuff at Piperlime). The printed part of the top (zebra) is a soft, satin-like fabric, while the sleeves are a marled knit. I LOVE the combo here, this was one of those tops that you see and MUST have regardless of the price (luckily it was completely reasonable — thanks TJ’s!) When you are out shopping for fall and winter items this season, make sure to get some mixed fabric tops and/or jackets to stay on trend! Happy shopping!
This was my inspiration for this look. I changed it around a little and made it my own by adding the necklace, scarf, and the pop of color with my favorite clutch. The idea of mixing the printed pant with a beige top and white tank came from this stylist! Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies has amazing style and is one of my favorite bloggers. She is 100% someone to follow for inspiration! The weather here in New England is getting a little chilly, so I had to go with a bootie rather than heels like she paired the look with, but I think I actually prefer my look!
I borrowed this scarf from my mom a while ago. I love the plaid pattern and colors, but it is square-shaped, so I never really knew exactly how to wear it. I recently got back from a short trip to France, where my french sister was wearing a bandana around her neck. Plaid old, classic printed bandana – with shorts, cowboy boots and a plain tee – and she was completely adorable and super trendy! So when I got back, I tried to take this french style and make it my own, and it completely worked here! I got a lot of compliments on this scarf, and it totally made this outfit… along with my new favorite booties that I scored from TJMaxx for just $35! Ankle booties are super trendy right now, and are perfect for seasonal weather like we have had lately in New England! TJ’s had a pretty good stock!
Trying to get a few more summer looks in before it gets too cold in New England! On one hand I get really upset that the sunny warm summer months are coming to an end and my pool days are down to zero. O the other hand though, I get a little excited to switch up my wardrobe and start wearing warmer clothes again. It is almost like getting a whole new wardrobe because my clothes have been put away in a trunk all summer just awaiting my return in the fall! So I am a little happy to be seeing them soon… and happy to share some new fall looks with you too!
There are so many great sales currently at retail of summer clothes! If you were missing a few items that you never got around to purchasing this year, now is the time to get them — on clearance and while you still can! I saw this cute top on clearance at the Loft a few weeks ago, amongst many other cute things I wanted to buy… had to pull myself away! Thanks for reading! I am hoping to get back on track with my posts in the coming weeks!
Printed pants are so in! They are popping up all over the place this year. Gap had a lot of prints in their “skimmer” ankle length denim this summer, and have already rolled out a whole new set of prints for fall along with the other big name stores. This was my “test”/”safe” printed pant! I was a little unsure of how I felt about them, so I picked up a cheap pair from Forever 21, with one of the most simple prints — polka dots! I do like them, but still have a hard time finding items to pair them with! What do you think of printed denim?
A Blazer is a very quick and easy way to add a little class to any look. They can really be worn with anything, and are super “in” right now. It is the perfect little jacket to grab before work on a chilly morning, wear in the office, and even totally acceptable for drinks after work too! What more can you want from a piece? This one came from H&M last year, but I have a little black one that I scored from Salvation Army for just $5. I read somewhere a while ago that Thrift stores are loaded with blazers, and boy was that article right. If you are ever strolling by, drop in and take a look for yourself, and you may just find a little deal and new jacket! Just make sure to push up or roll the sleeves, that is the trend! Happy hunting! Thanks for reading!
This cute little top came from Forever21. It can be worn with jeans for more of a low-key look, or paired with a sharp necklace, heels and skinnies for a cute night out! My look here (and my styles in general) are more “going out” than laid back. I like feeling pretty and girly, and I looove heels!! Add a cute printed or patterned clutch to this look and I am ready to go!
Love the loose knit and marled combination of this sweater! I got this a few years ago from forever 21, where some true gems can really be found as long as you are patient and willing to go digging! I just grabbed a really cute multi-fabric sweater from TJMaxx today too, that looks a little similar to this one. This fabric has little neps in it of other colors — grey, black and white, that usually is called “marled”. It really gives the piece a lot more life. Just have to be careful of pulling with the loose knit process, but def trending this fall!
