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.

One of my favorite finds at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is this mixed metal necklace. I’m a sucker for statement necklaces and loved the edgy, yet feminine look of this stand-out accessory. The pastel stones soften the heavy-metal look of the chain links, creating a modern necklace that can instantly glam up an outfit.
I wanted the mixed-media necklace to be the focus of my ensemble, so I paired it with a simple white tee. Staying with the edgy look, I finished the outfit with a leather skirt and lace-up booties. It’s a great feeling when you piece together an outfit that makes you feel confident and that is exactly what this outfit did for me.
Tomorrow is the big day! From fancy to festive and everything in between, these four outfits are perfect for a variety of Thanksgiving plans.
For a casual gathering at home with family and friends, cozy leggings (hello, elastic waistband!) paired with an oversized sweater and infinity scarf creates a stylish, yet laid-back look. The sequin elbow patches glam up this basic sweater and add a trendy touch.
Heading to a festive, fancy soirée? The gold embellishments amp up this little black dress. Show a little skin – but not too much. This tight, short dress is balanced with the long sleeves and high neckline, which creates a sophisticated style. Accessorize with dangly earrings and heeled booties or pumps for a glamorous look.
Friendsgiving calls for more of a funky, relaxed vibe. Layering a feminine lace dress with an edgy leather jacket definitely achieves that look. It’s all in the details – the studs on the jacket and turquoise ring bring this outfit together.
‘Tis the season for sparkles! Sequins aren’t just for New Year’s Eve. As LaurenConrad.com shows, a chunky, knit sweater can dress down a metallic skirt. Complete the look with tights and booties for an effortless ensemble.
I hope everyone has an amazing (and trendy) Thanksgiving! :)

Don’t do too much spring cleaning! There are still some styles from winter that are popping up everywhere this season! Here’s how to transform them from winter wear to spring staples!
- Peplum. This figure-flattering trend is here to stay! Whether it’s a skirt, dress or top, go for a bright color or fun pattern. A leather peplum top will look great with some mint or neon-colored skinny jeans!
- Studs. The trendiest detail around! Mix this “tough girl” look with pastels or lace for a more girly vibe.
- Leather. Instead of heavy coats think accents: panels on dresses, trims on tank tops and shoulder patches on sweaters.
- Statement necklaces. Accessories are a great way to add a pop of color, such as mint or coral. The Peter Pan style is also popular to wear with a top or dress that has a simple neckline.
- Patterned pants. Look for colorful floral prints or brighten up a dark-patterned pair from winter with a pastel or neon top.
