Winter Inspiration

I've been stuck inside this week due to the rain from Sandy, but that doesn't stop me from scouting out my favorite winter looks and doing some online shopping. I found these pictures on Pinterest, and cannot wait to recreate these looks!

Perfect mix of hard (leather jacket) and soft (girly skirt)

A chunky sweater with skinny jeans

White pants for winter

Mix of textures

Jewel tones

PS...Happy Halloween all!

Calm Before the Storm

The east coast is expecting some awful weather the next couple of days, this was the calm before the storm. I am embracing myself with rain boots, winter coats, and umbrellas. Bring on the rain, this girl is ready.
(Hopefully I will be able to document my looks this week!)
Have a great (and dry) week!

Rule Breaker

Jacket: American Eagle Outfitters (love this one!)  /  Shirt: J. Crew  /  Pants: American Eagle Outfitters  /  Scarf: H&M (similar style)  /  Belt: H&M (similar here)  /  Shoes: Steve Madden (similar style)  /  Purse: DKNY  /  Jewels: Kate Spade, Natasha, AE  /  Shades: House of Harlow 1960

I'm all about breaking rules...when it comes to fashion that is. Fashion is about taking risks and making your own rules. Therefore, I now made the rule that it is totally okay to wear white after Labor Day! I mean after all, I couldn't let my favorite white pants just lay there all fall and winter, right? If you pair fun autumn colors with your whites, you totally make it appropriate for this season and add that surprise element to your look!

Are you fashionistas wearing white after labor day?

Fall Brights

Sweater: Forever 21  /  Blazer: H&M  /  Shirt: H&M (last seen here)  /  Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters (bought three sizes up for a boy fit)  Shoes: Nine West (flats + kitten heels also available)  /  Belt: c/o American Eagle Outfitters  /  Purse: Emma Fox  /  Jewelry: Kate Spade, J. Crew Factory, JCPenney's, Ann Taylor  /  Shades: Urban Outfitters

Goodbye boring and dark fall shades, hello fall brights and neons! Just because the temperature starts to drop and it's dark by 5 pm everyday, doesn't mean your wardrobe has to be full of dark clothing. What helps me get out of the fall and winter weather blues is bright and cheery colors. And a lot of them! 
The shoes, well they speak for themselves!
