Mixing Fall Trends


I love the Fall season! I cannot stress that enough. I don't know if it's the layering, boots, scarves or just the transition into holiday season. So of course I'm excited for fall trends! Number one: I love that military cargo jackets are very in. I think a military style jacket with distressed boots just looks bad @%%! :) Number two: Now at first I wasn't very enthused with the whole leopard print trend but I've seen a few pieces and outfits that are really tastfully done. Usually I think its a bit obnoxious to mix trendy pieces but I think these two play well off each other.

This jacket looks great with the sleeves rolled up and a brown leather belt.

Perfect touch of print. This would cinch in a cargo jacket very chic-ly.

Tory Burch Reva leopard-print ballerina flats
I love the dark print on these flats. Adored.

Chanel you might have something here...

Once I saw the promo images of Chanel Paradoxal Nail Lacquer I had to see it swatched!! I checked out one of my fav nail blogs, Scrangie.com and tah-dah!! The promo images just don't do justice. This color is a unique mix of muave, gray, and plum with a violet shimmer (lol my color interpretation) and will be everywhere! Remember the mint nail color? Yes, this will get the same lovin. I must throw in that Chanel doesn't get the best reviews on their lacquers staying power and for $23 this might be one of the few things most of us can afford from Chanel. Either way it's a beauty!

Forever 21 Maternity Line

One of my best friends is preggers at the moment and needless to say, she might love shopping just as much as me! Unfortunately, she hasn't had the best of luck shopping for maternity clothes in her little small town. On top of that she doesn't have a clue what size she really is anymore so she doesn't want to shop online. Soooo being the friend I am I had to let her know that Forever 21 has a new maternity line! Very slim pickings but they offer cute basics at an affordable price.
Click here to view the line.

*FYI, Forever 21 received a lot of controversy over this line and took to Twitter to address the issue:

"Forever 21 did not create, design or distribute Love 21 Maternity to target, or appeal specifically to pregnant teens. Any relationship between teen pregnancy rates and the locations of our stores is unintentional."

So in case you haven't heard the good news....Mulberry is coming to Target! Yup, Mulberry is the next brand to collaborate with Target. Look for it in stores and online October 10th! Word is they will have a similar piece to the iconic 'Alexa' handbag. I will provide an update when more details are available. This collection will probably sell fast, be prepared! Check out Blake Lively and Michelle Trachtenberg sporting the 'Neely' bag below.

The Most Wanted Pants!

There's no denying these pants are the hottest selling item right now! With their skinny fit and modern twist on the cargo pants these J Brand Houlihan pants are hot! From the New York Times,

"Since the end of January, its manufacturer, J Brand, has sold more than 75,000 pairs of the style and has 40,000 pairs on back order. “In 33 years I’ve never shipped anything like this,” Jeff Rudes, the founder and chief executive of J Brand, said this week, noting that some customers have offered to prepay for the $230 style."

But with a retail price of $230 these are definitely a splurge! Luckily I found a similar pair that resembles this same look for half the price tag!
These Chelsea & Violet Skinny Cargo Pants retail for $118 and make a great alternative.

Wanted: Jennifer Zeuner Initial Necklace

I love accessories! Period. I've been seein Jennifer Zeuner's pieces in magazines for quite a while but I just never got on my computer and did the research. Well finally after I kept seeing starlets like Lauren Conrad, Jessica Alba and others wearing this jewlery line I had to check it out. Now I'm in love! I guess I thought this line would be expensive or hard to attain. In acutuality this beauty pictured above retails for $242 which actually isn't bad considering the hardware and that its custom made. Im just imagining wearing this necklace with a cute summer dress or paired with a v-neck and skinny jeans! Check out JenniferZeuner.com for more of her creations. P.S. The sideways cross necklace is a fab pick of mine as well :)

Stay Cute in the Winter

Ahh the freezing temperatures have come among us. As much I love to layer up and have an excuse to wear my boots, it's not fun being outside or in your car waiting for the heat to kick in during the winter. It can be tricky staying fashionable and warm during these times. Bulky sweaters and heavy coats can hide a girl's figure. Anywho, I saw this pic of Jessica Alba and it gave me some needed inspiration. I love how casual and classy her style is. Her ensemble of nudes is gorg!
