Fall Fashion: Favorite Looks + Thanksgiving Outfit #1


I love autumn. The colors, the weather, the beginning of the holiday season, the clothes. I can finally layer my clothes and bundle up in some of my fave clothes.

Even though we’re already more than halfway through November and almost on to winter already, I thought now would be a good time to share some of my favorite fall looks with you. Stay tuned for some Thanksgiving outfit inspiration after!

Scarves + Caps

Scarves have been some of my favorite fall and winter accessories for a few years now. When the temperature starts to drop, they’re the first thing I reach for. I also got into baseball caps a couple of months ago, probably in springtime. I wore them all summer, both at camp when I wanted to keep my hair under control and the sun out of my eyes, and at school when I wanted to go for a trendy street-style look. This fall, however, I’ve realized how much I love the pair together. They’re the epitome of street-style chic. They’re cozy and comfy but totally on trend. I think the pairing reminds me very much of a celebrity just trying to go about their life while hiding from the paparazzi. This look is perfect for class, running errands, or an afternoon out.

Stand-Out Coats

A stand-out coat is always a winner, and this month especially I’ve been hardore ogling some bright and eye-catching coats that are perfect for this season and next. They’re cozy as anything and make your outfit stand out. Extra credit if your coat has fancy buttons!

Big Sweaters

I used to be all about form-fitting silhouettes, but the last few months, I have realized the appeal of big sweaters that pool around you. They’re great for snuggling into when you’re a little cold, convenient for pairing with leggings and boots when you’re running late, and perfect for so many situations. I have so many different styles now, like a regular long-line sweater and a cold-shoulder drapey sweater, and I could just live in them. Find one in a color and style you love and rock it all fall and winter!

Turtlenecks

For years, I refused to wear turtlenecks, even though my mother always begged me, but at the start of the semester, I got really into them. I had gotten one last fall at Target, but I had only worn it a handful of times, and then I bought another one in September. They’re classy and cool, not to mention super trendy. I love pairing them with high-waisted jeans or skirts and long necklaces. I tend to stick to solid colors because I find them more slimming, but if you love the look of a patterned turtleneck, go for it!

Now, onto the promised bit of inspiration…

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #1: Flowy Pants

I love sharing outfit ideas with you guys because I have so so many and I can’t always wear them all myself.

I firmly believe that the only way to get through the holidays, especially Thanksgiving, is to wear comfy, stretchy clothes that you can breathe in. There’s so much food and drink that it can be hard to stay in restrictive skinny jeans or a tight miniskirt throughout the many courses of the Thanksgiving meal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up looking cute as can be!

For this particular outfit, I’m loving a pair of stretchy, flowy pants that let you eat as much as you want without ruining your outfit. Many of you may see flowy pants as a spring- or summertime piece, but when you choose something that looks a bit more structured, like a denim-esque pair, you can pull them off in the fall, too. This pair from Pink Ice is like the jegging version of flowy pants: looks like denim, but in real life, they’re 100% tencel, which is a super comfy and stretchy material. Pair these high-waisted beauties with a simple crop top and a flowy poncho, cardigan or kimono that you can cuddle (or hide!) in once the food coma hits. Bonus points if they color coordinate! I think these pants just scream for a heeled bootie, so I picked a pair with a cool lacing detail. I also think this outfit is calling for a trendy choker, so I picked a velvet choker with a leaf charm that matches the black booties and the whole outfit’s boho flair. Last but not least, finish it off with a cool patterned tote that boasts some contrasting colors. This will add some spark and extra detail to your outfit. Now, all you have to focus on is eating!

Back to School: Look #4: Maxi Dress


Hey, everyone! If any of you know me, you know that I love maxi dresses! This super simple back to school outfit features a maxi dress in a style that is perfect for the first week of school! Hope you all enjoy!

Maxi Dress

Here’s your chance to make your favorite summer attire hallway appropriate! Throw on your fave maxi dress, whether it’s patterned or solid, tank or sleeved, and get ready to strut your stuff! Pick something that’s hemmed to about the middle of the top of your foot, that way you won’t be tripping all over it! Also, try to avoid strapless, as they are against most school dress codes and you don’t want to have a mega malfunction!

Shoes

For this outfit, I would stick to a simple pair of metallic gold flat sandals. It will keep your look grounded, but will also give it a bit of shine. I prefer flats because they’re easier to walk around in, but if you prefer a heel, look for something that is relatively low. The idea is to look and feel comfortable and relaxed, so don’t pick a pair of shoes that you just can’t walk in!

Accessories

For this ensemble, I would stick to a few pieces of jewelry, like a gold charm bracelet, gold stud earrings, and a gold statement ring. With those added pieces, you’ll look glam in an understated way, and you won’t look like you’re trying to hard!

Back to School: Five Hallway Essentials


Hey, guys! With school right around the corner, I thought I’d share my school necessities with you! Hope you enjoy!

1. Cute backpack: Everyone knows how important your backpack is to your school experience. It honestly can make or break your year. You want something that’s cute and trendy, but also affordable and roomy. I always like to look for something with pockets to hold my cell phone, wallet and emergency kit. I try to look for something with lots of compartments so that I can keep my books organized. When you get your bag, put your books in it right away to make sure it can hold everything. If not, it’s back to the drawing board! It’s better to have one completely functional bag than two or three cute bags full of books! Stay tuned for a guide on this year’s backpack trends!

2. Sweet (and comfy!) kicks: Chances are that, if you’re in high school, there’s going to be some point in the day when you have to sprint from one side of the school to another just to make it to class on time. Let’s be real here: You really don’t want to make that trek in a pair of impossibly high heels or incredibly tight shoes that give you blisters. So opt for something a little bit more comfortable and manageable. Sure, it’s fun to wear heels to school every once in a while, but when you do, stick to a maximum of two or three inches with a platform, and go for flats the rest of the time. You’ll get to class faster, and your feet will thank you. But don’t feel like you have to do sneakers just to stay comfortable! There are so many different kinds of shoes that you could rock while still sparing your feet the trauma. Find a style that you like and feel comfortable in, then rock them in the hallways!

3. Functional and cool watch: At school, it’s always important that you know the time. You need to know how much time you have left on a test? You want to know how much time you have left of this boooring U.S. history lecture? You want to know how much time you have left to finish your forgotten homework? Check. Your. Watch. I can’t tell you how much wearing a watching to school has helped me. The school’s clocks are always breaking or out of sight, so now I can rely on my own handy dandy watch. And watches can be cute! They’re practical and fashionable. What’s better than that?! I like analog watches, but if you can’t read analog: 1. Learn how to. 2. Go for digital. There are so many cute options, the possibilities are endless!

4. Adorable wallet: For me, it’s always important to have a wallet on me. I need to have my school I.D. on me at all times, and some money in case there’s a pizza sale or my friends want to make a quick Starbucks run in between school and extracurricular activities. It’s important to me that my wallets are cute, so (ironically), all of mine have animals on them. I have one with a peacock, two with owls and one with an elephant. They make me smile, and they’re great conversation starters. Look for something that matches your own personal style and personality, but also holds your I.D., your cash, your change and, of course, your Panera card and Starbucks gift card!

5. Super cute makeup bag: I’ll be honest, I totally rely on a makeup bag at school. I use it to hold my emergency kit (blog post coming soon!) and need it to be roomy, but also cute! I like something with a zipper and preferably some compartments. I usually either keep it in my locker or in my backpack, but my friends come to me for things that I keep in there, so I want it to be cute!
