Quilted Florals

IMG_0509 (2)

Quilting is not just found on classic Chanel handbags anymore. The trendy texture is on everything this fall, from leggings and skirts to leather jackets and cardigans. This quilted crop top initially caught my eye because of the gray floral pattern with a hint of pink, but the final selling point was the fun, feminine texture.

I love the juxtaposition of a feminine item paired with something edgy, so I balanced out the girly top with a leather skirt and caged sandals. To accessorize, I added some simple studs and basic black purse.

Bootie, Bootie, Booties Rockin’ Everywhere!

Must-have fall footwear? Booties! From edgy to girly and classic to country, these chic shoes work with any style. Here are my picks for the top booties of the season.

Studded. For the tough girl or girly girl, these booties from Target are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. For an edgy look, pair with leather leggings and an oversized graphic sweatshirt. To soften up the studs, pair with a feminine, floral dress.

Cut-outs aren’t just for dresses and tops anymore. Booties are hot on their heels with this trendy look. Dress them down with denim or up with a classic LBD. LuLu*s has a vast selection of sexy shoes, including these nude heels.

Leopard print. Take a walk on the wild side with this stand-out style. It’s important to keep your outfit simple when you wear a statement shoe. Chic skinnies, an oversized top and minimal accessories make the fancy footwear the focal point of your ensemble.

Lace adds instant country charm. This pair from Francesca’s is the ultimate in cowboy chic. They would look adorable with a girly skirt and chambray top.

Metal accents, such as the toe and buckles on these REPORT Signature booties from Nordstrom, add a fancy, sophisticated touch to simple shoes.

Peep Toe. Make sure to have on pretty polish with this contemporary cut! I got this pair from Nordstrom during the Anniversary Sale. They go with everything and add instant style to a basic dress or skinny jeans.

Oxford and menswear are also popular styles this season. This pair by Restricted from DSW has a feminine flare with the wedge, laces and cut-out.

Fall Fashion

IMG_4841

School is starting, football season has begun and pumpkin-flavored food and drinks are everywhere! Fall has arrived — my favorite time of year! Nothing is better than wearing a cozy sweater and boots with a pumpkin spice latte in hand traipsing over the fallen leaves. As the weather gets cooler, the season’s fashion trends are heating up! Here are a few of my fall must-haves:

  • Boots! Tall, short, brown, black, lace-up, riding style… I want them all! This season I am on the hunt for some classy black and caramel two-toned boots. As of now I am still on the lookout, so if anyone has seen my dream boots, let me know!
  • Colored denim. I just invested in a pair of burgundy jeans and have been more than pleased with my purchase! They are perfect to wear with a lacy black top to go out or dress them down with a chunky knit sweater and boots. Also, mustard-colored denim is everywhere this fall!
  • Detailed collars. Studs and sequins are spicing up many chiffon, button-up tops. Faux leather and animal print have also been spotted as stylish additions.
  • Cozy sweaters. The bigger the better! My favorite look for a casual day is a chunky, oversized sweater with skinny jeans and booties. Sweaters with elbow patches are  also popular this season. I found this adorable one at Urban Outfitters.

Happy shopping!
