Perfection...Fabulous Cold Weather Perfection

I was browsing pinkmascara.com (just found out about it, its fantastic!) and I found this amazingly gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim cardigan. It's elegant and feminine, completely adorable. It goes great with anything- jeans, skirts, everything. I love this navy, too. It's becoming a go-to color for fall, I saw tons of it at the Emmys.

Isn't it gorgeous?


p.s. I was way too tired to do Week's Worth of Outfits this week, so it's gonna wait...


The Complete Fall Fashion Guide

Fall is approaching (except in Texas, where it's still 90 degrees), and that means fall fashion! The new crop of trends is bestowed upon us- elegant coats, chunky knits, flat boots, and collegiate-chic are all fabulous trends, but there are so many more that will most definitely be shown here. These trends are in no particular order (they are going to be REALLY random). Enjoy.


A few seasons ago, plaid was more grunge, but now it is polished and stylish. Try it on a minidress with tights and a cardigan or an elegant jacket.

Charlotte Ronson puts her own spin on clothes, like this bib at the top. The colors are sophisticated and make the plaid look far from country girl. This would look great with black tights and slouchy boots.

I love this Generra Pocket Front Dress, especially the wrinkled-on-purpose material. This dress is so chic and effortless. Love it!

Jeans for Fall:

Jeans for fall are much more elegant- clean silhouettes, no rips or tears. Grey denim and wide leg jeans are great for fall

These Anlo Roth Wide Leg Trouser jeans are so sophisticated and sleek. These would look great with a long fitted cardigan in a bright color.

Here are some great Cheap Monday skinny jeans, with the grey denim trend involved. Grey denim is best pulled off with a monochrome outfit, but to keep it interesting, play with different shades of grey in your outfit.

Another great pair of grey jeans- the Paige Blue Heights Skinny Jean from Scoop. I love Paige jeans because they feel so broken-in and comfy, like you've had them for decades.

The "colored" jean trend is also fabulous for fall. I put quotations around colored because they aren't exactly colored, but you can definitely tell they aren't the regular denim color. I love these Cheap Monday 0100118 jeans- they look so comfortable.

William Rast has really been standing out to me lately for stylish, on-trend jeans. Their jeans always look so polished and neat, and so versatile. These could easily be a pair of casual school jeans or some to "dress up" with.

Sweater Dresses:

Sweater dresses are absolutely essential for fall- they are stylish, comfortable, and keep you warm. They are also great layering pieces.

This Alice + Olivia Cashmere Cowl Dress looks so elegant, I love the cowl neck. The ribbed cashmere adds a casual touch.

When fall comes around, don't ever feel you have to be limited to blacks and greys. Color is a fabulous way to make your wardrobe feel so much more exciting. This Ella Moss Stevie Knot Babydoll Dress from Intermix is adorable!

I love the ivory color on this Ella Moss Whistler Cutout Layered Sweater Dress. The long sleeves are perfectly balanced with the short skirt, and the ruching is so cute. Definitely pair this with tights and boots=fabulous.

This Jamison Long Sleeve Pocket Tunic Dress is so simple and elegant, and can easily be jazzed up with accessories or a few layering pieces.

Here's another simple dress from J.Crew. This would pair perfectly with a bright belt, which are also HOT this season. Belt anything and everything- cardigans, dresses, jeans, pants. Really. Everything.

This T-Bags Knit Dress has a fantastic mod feel to it, especially with the purple and black colorblocking.


Don't you just hate it when you can never find a decent winter coat that is even remotely stylish? Do you want to get warm and still be with the trends? Look no further. Wow, I just sounded like some cheesy commercial.

This Ben Sherman Sally Coat from Urban Outfitters is great with a pair of dark jeans to add a bit of elegance to them. I love this coat- it's so pretty, especially the color and the cowl neck.

The classic peacoat will never go out of style, and this bright red J.Crew one is perfection. This would also look great with dark, wide leg trouser jeans.

How gorgeous is this Marc by Marc coat? I mean, just look at the color. And the buttons just perfectly placed. AHHHH I WANT IT.

The Lux Nonpariel Jacket is so...cool, I'm really not sure what about it.

Sweater coats are a fabulous trend this fall, and I love this Kimchi & Blue one from Urban Outfitters. They have a charcoal color, but this picture was better.

The leather jacket is huge in Hollywood and the fashion world, and this cropped GoldSign Leather Bomber is FAB-U-LOUS.

This Vince leather jacket is also amazing. I love the funnel neck, it's a really interesting touch.

Houndstooth is a great, classic pattern, and on this Alice + Olivia jacket, it's so sophisticated.

Not exactly a winter coat, but it is a jacket, and an amazing blazer at that. Unbuttoned and left relaxed, this looks casual but still really cool over a pair of jeans.

This Lux North Country Coat is so elegant, and the combination that the model is wearing of skinny jeans and boots, is so cute.

Fall Shoes:

Metallics are still a huge trend, as well as Mary Janes, flat boots, and ankle boots.

These Anna Sui Metallic Leather Biker Boots are so fabulous, I can't find the words to describe them. I love the olive-green-gold-brownish color, the buckles, and the feminine metallic color contrasting with the biker boots. AMAZING.

I am in love with these Charlotte Ronson Yulia Suede Slouchy Pirate Boots. These would look great with ribbed tights, a cute mini, and a fitted sweater.

Two of fall's most prominent shoe trends- metallics and Mary Janes- in one.

Anything Marc Jacobs touches is just fantastic, especially these suede Mary Janes. These are soooo cute.

And here's a patent leather version in black and white. Equally as cute.

These KORS Michael Kors metallic ankle strap flats are adorable- I love the pointed toe and the detail on the toe. Ankle straps are one of my favorite trends for fall.

These stylish, elegant Pedro Garcia Satin Ballet Flats are juxtaposed by the frayed edge. These are such a beautiful color, too.

Instead of the typical bow or buckle on the toe, I love this beading, it's a lot different from everything else I see usually. These adorable flats are from Scoop.

These Scorah Pattullo ankle boots are so cute, especially with some grey ribbed tights like these Missoni ones from Net-a-Porter.

Definitely worth the extra splurge.


Knits are big for fall accessories, like in knit hats & scarves. Worldly-like colorful scarves inspired by Balenciaga's fall collection are great accessories, as well as tights and belts.

I am so into these knit caps lately, they're a perfect topper for a fall/winter outfit. Eugenia Kim makes great ones at ShopBop.

^A Free People knit cap^

I am obsessed with these colorful J.Crew argyle socks- I cannot wait to buy them and put them over tights in the fall. These also look great peeking out of boots.

This red, white, and blue scarf from J.Crew perfectly fits into the "collegiate-chic" trend.

Balenciaga-inspired scarves are popping up everywhere, and I love this one from Topshop, with the earth tones and fall colors.

Another great scarf in a gorgeous green color, from Urban Outfitters. This adds a great pop of color to any outfit.

Belts are everywhere right now, like bright colored skinny belts. This one from Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent is a fabulous turquoise color and is so pretty!

This lavender belt from Urban Outfitters is also great.

Oh my goodness...extremely long post. That took so long.



Week's Worth of Outfits

Just a random note- I feel like I used a lot of red this week, I haven't really looked over it, but I just feel like I picked out a lot of red items. We'll see.


This adorable AKA New York Button Dress is perfect to start the week. Everything about it is so cute- the high buttoned neck, 3/4 length sleeves, drop waist, and fun print. It's just perfection!

Add these black tights from Urban Outfitters next- tights are definitely a fall essential.

These assortment of gold bangles from Urban Outfitters are a great compliment to the red print of the dress.

Add another metallic touch to your outfit with these BP Edie Metallic Leather Ballet Flats from Nordstrom. I have these and I love them. I love them so much that the bow on the left one is like...completely destroyed. I'm upset.


The t-shirt dress is reinvented with this Lux Graphic T-shirt Dress from Urban Outfitters. I love this pattern, it makes the dress so unique.

Am I the only one who thought that the hand was a huge deformed arm at first? I was freaked out. This bangle though, is good for the outfit. I would stack on a couple of these. I don't like wearing only one thin bangle.

Some scrunchy suede boots are perfect for completing this look. Try these Joie Shoes Adelaide Suede Boots are fabulous, a must for fall.


Start with this delicate white Alexander Wang Crepe Tank from ShopBop. I love this airy silhouette and the pocket.

Layer on this black Lux Thermal Cardigan from Urban Outfitters. This looks so comfortable and still so fashionable.

Add this Kenneth Jay Lane Apple Necklace for your jewelry. I am in love with Kenneth Jay Lane's designs. They are whimsical and so fun, and sure to get you tons of compliments.

These Dolce Vita Moritz Bow Ballet Flats are so cute to complete this outfit.


Day Outfit-

This amazing AKA New York Flutter Sleeve Cashmere Cardigan looks so comfortable and it's great to throw over a tee to fashion-ify it, and I love the sophisticated color.

Put this Urban Outfitters Super Scoop Tee on under. This red looks great with the color of the cardigan.

Pair them with these True Religion Candice Wide Leg Jeans. These are just so cute, I don't know why. The dark color and slightly wide leg are really clean looking.

The Jeffrey Campbell 'Flapper' Leather Flats from Nordstrom are so sophisticated, especially the olive green color and the leather.

Night Outfit-

*a note about night outfits- i don't really know where you guys go every night, so these outfits are just kind of dressier for...other events. if you guys have a request for an outfit for somewhere you go, then just comment*

This Diane von Furstenberg dress from Milk is so pretty! The soft colors in the crazy print are balanced with the simple shape. I love it.

These set of metallic bangles from Intuition are really versatile and add fun to any outfit.

Day Outfit-

This Ella Moss Natalie Tunic is so pretty, especially the jewel tone purple. I love how it's so simple.

I usually don't go for these kind of denim shorts, but these Skinny Trouser Bermudas from American Eagle are so cute, perfect for a casual weekend.

The Juicy Couture 'Edith' Flats finish off the outfit perfectly. These are such versatile flats, so elegant.

Night Outfit-

I fell in love with this Lux Silk Shirtdress the moment I saw it. It's a great spin on the classic shirtdress- a light, airy silk in a gorgeous cherry red.

Add these Donna Karan tights from Nordstrom- they are perfect for any outfit, I love the very slight sheen.

I love the combination of red and gold, and this SURevolution Wired Cuff from ShopBop is gorgeous.

Finish with one of the most stylish shoes for fall, the ankle boot. I love these Paul & Joe Cheers Shirred Bootie.


The base for this outfit is the Kate Moss Topshop Muscle Back Tank from Barneys. I know you can get it off the Topshop website, but doesn't it look so much cuter on the blue mannequin...

Next, layer on this Lux Skye Sweater from Urban Outfitters. This cranberry color is great and instantly jazzes up your plainest outfit.

This Clover Skirt from Forever 21 is so pretty- I love the print and colors.

Some simple grey suede flats balance out the look.

Okay, maybe there wasn't as much red as I thought...
