Sweater Weather!

Tomorrow is October and that means its time to bring out the sweaters, scarves, and boots! Luckily I already blogged about scarves and boots, so this post is about sweaters! The cozy beloved sweater is perfect for any outfit. Whether it’s a cardigan, pullover, or cashmere sweater, all are perfect for the crisp fall weather. Oversized sweaters seems to be a big trend this season. Girls usually pair them with a pair of leggings and boots for a comfortable cute look.
Here of some of my favorite looks:











I really love the pattered sweaters and the ones with fur. There an unexpected change and look very cute!

P.S If your still cold with a cozy sweater on try pairing it with a scarf!

A Scarf for Fall!

Its almost October and that means the weather is getting very crisp and colder outside! It’s time for scarf season! Scarves are the perfect fall and winter accessory! Not only do they keep you warm, but they can even add an extra pop to your outfit. There are a billion types of fabrics, patterns, lengths, and type of scarves; and there are endless ways to tie them! Here are looks that I am loving this fall with scarves:



I love bright “pop” scarves, patterned, flora, and lace scarves. Here are some of my favorites that you can purchase:

Circle scarves, or infinity scarves, are extremely popular. You can just throw it on and not have to worry about how to tie it in a cute way. But if you are wearing a normal scarf and need to tie it then try my favorite website that I use! This website has videos that show you step by step direction on how to tie just about any scarf. Its very helpful to use and gives me good ideas to use for my next outfit! http://www.scarves.net/how-to-tie-a-scarf/

Try out some scarves since its almost October and enjoy the weather! 🙂

These boots are made for walking.

The temperature is dropping outside, and that means its boots season everyone! My favorite trends for boots this fall: combat boots and riding boots. Luckily, due to my amazing mother, I have a couple pairs in my closet lined up for this years fall season!

Combat Boots: These boots adds an instant edge to your look. These look amazing paired with a leather jacket, a feminine dress, or even a classic cardigan. Overall you can wear these boots with whatever you like to make your look edger.




Riding Boots: A classic, chic, and perfect boot. They make every outfit look effortless, expensive, and put together. Plus they are so many cute one to get!



All of these boots are available at Nordstrom so stock up for the season!

Spiked out!

One of the cutest trends this fall is spikes! A trend for all the edgy girls in fashion! I love this because you can add an edge to your outfit but you can still keep it classy and cute at the same time. I think accessories are the safest way to play on this trend. But if you are confident enough to rock a spiked shirt do it!

Remember not to have a whole outfit of spikes. Try a collar on a shirt, some of the boots, a bag, or a bracelet. And not hard core spikes but classy spikes! Make sure your outfit still is classy but just a little bit edgy. Try pairing an soft feminine outfit with spiked accessories, or a spiked shirt with a cute skirt.

Nail Polish Galore!

When I think of fall I think of three major things: fall weather, fall fashion, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte of course! While not everyday do we have our pumpkin spice latte in hand, we do always have our beautiful nail polish! Lets be honest, people see our nails ALL the time! That’s why I strive to have my nails in perfect shape with a new color on every week. Now that doesn’t always happen… but I try to!

This week my nails are emerald green, a perfect color for fall! It’s not to dark or to light, and it’s such a beautiful color!

Colors I think are great for fall: turquoise, navy blue, jewel tones, silver sparkles, dark purple, a deep red, and black with gold!For fall I like to choose darker hues but nothing black. Personally I never where black nail polish, but if you do I would save that for when it really gets cold. Sparkles always look nice, but make sure it doesn’t look to much like a summer nail. Also I can not stress enough NO NEON! If I had one rule for nail polish it would be no neon. If and only if you wear it in the summer it can look good, but besides that ditch the neon nails!

Sunday Look!

On Sunday I had a very busy day. To accommodate that I wore a comfortable, chic, yet dressy outfit. My outfit had to survive a day of church, family, shopping, and my BP Fashion Board meeting! I wore a red and navy striped t-shirt dress, a white cross bag, gold “sun” earrings, and bronze sparkle flats! Thankfully my outfit looks good the whole day!

Then for my makeup I wanted to go for a classic look. I got my makeup done by Stila Cosmetics. The woman who did my makeup did a Marilyn Monroe look! I thought it looked fabulous and was perfect for my day out! She used a black liquid eye liner, a light brown eye, and a showstopper red lip! This look makes everyone fearless, super chic, and fashionable. I recommend it for everyone! Sadly in this picture you can’t see how striking the red was 😦

Red lips are great for Fall and Winter and make every outfit look fabulous! I think everyone should pull this look off at least a couple times this season! I know I will be! If you don’t know what color or what brand I recomend Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Feiry which is a deep red. I love this color very much! I hope you all wear the red lip this season!

What Every Girl Should Own – Fall Edition

What Every Girl Should Own – Fall Edition
If your planning to buy your fall wardrobe and need help on the newest trends look no future! This post shows 3 trends that are perfect for fall! I personally want them all 🙂

Trend #1: 
Color Blocking


I absolutely love this dress! The dress makes a bold statement with such a huge contrast between the black and white. This very classy and chic dress can be casual enough for a day of shopping or dressy enough for work. Also the lines on this dress makes every woman look thin and covers any unwanted flaws!


This is another very chic black and white combo. This blouse is a perfect staple that can be worn with a colored denim or a black pant/skirt for work! Add a chunky collar necklace or a large cuff bracelet for an accessory.


This cardigan is perfect for fall! A simple cardigan like this makes you look very fashionable with an effortless ease. Put this sweater with a solid shirt and a crazy pattern denim or switch it the other way around!

Trend #2:
Crazy Collar


This is one of my favorite shirts! I love the color of the shirt and the amazing collar! The sequenced collar adds a fun, playful element to the shirt. Its simple enough to wear whatever you want with it but it still adds a pop to the shirt.


I fell in love with these sheer tank tops over the summer and I love that they continue into the fall trends! This one is super cute because of the beaded collar. The beaded collar makes the blowsy top from great to amazing! I have to get this top!!


This collar isn’t beaded or sparkly but yet a simple change. This floral fabric and simple collar change makes this shirt a very feminine piece for your closet! Plus I love this is a great floral for fall!

Trend #2:
Patterned Denim


I really love these jeans because of the metallic luster! With these jeans you can dress them up or down for the perfect look from day to night. They are just perfect for fall!


These jeans are super cute a girly. They look perfect with a long shirt or and over sized sweater! Just take your pick!


I really love these pants! I love that they look like normal blue jeans but also have the floral pattern to them! These pants would match almost every outfit that you already wear with your normal jeans. They are also perfect if you are not sure you could rock other crazy denim jeans. Overall they are really great!

All these outfits are perfect for fall! They are the newest trends that you see in latest magazines! I hope you try all of them out!

Love,
Juli

School Shoe Heaven!

School is back in session and also are all those crazy school shoes! I go to a school where we wear uniforms and all brown dress shoes. Our shoes are the only way we can express ourselves, well kinda. Today I went around and took pictures of many people’s shoes at my school to see whats popular. Of course the normal Sperry’s are in, like last year, but there are still other trends too!
My school shoes are caramel suede with a turquoise foam sole. I absolutely love my school shoes! I love both the oxford trend and the colored sole trend. So my school shoes are perfect for me! Here are some pictures of them:

There are other trends in school shoes that I really like too! I like Dr. Martens, oxfords (especially that are spiked), colored soles, loafers, and Sperry’s. My favorites so far are:

At an all girls school, everyone likes their shoes to be different. While the shoes might have a similar look most people are looking for the cutest, newest, and hottest trend for school shoes. There are many pictures I took of my friends shoes at school but here are just a couple:

I hope this helps you when choosing your school shoes if you haven’t done so already!

Hello world!

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone is enjoying the news about NYC Fashion Week! I know it’s making me really jealous that I can’t be there right now! I’ve always dreamed about attending all the high fashion shows in New York and hopefully some day I will. But thankfully the internet makes it possible to still know whats hot and whats not.
I know spring trends are hard to think about right now because it isn’t even fall yet. But some of the most reoccurring trends I see for Spring 2013: pastel colors, varying hemline, and cropped shirts.

Pastel Colors: After a long winter season of black and white, Spring 2013 will be full of light pastel colors. Light pink, blue, and green seem to be showing up a lot in fashion week so far. This trend is very feminine and very pretty, opposite of whats trending in the fall right now. (edgy, strong, and leather)

Varying Hemline: We saw this trend starting last year for high school dances. Many people were trying the high-low approche for Prom. This trend can look REALLY GOOD or REALLY BAD. Be careful that the hem doesn’t just look uneven and cheap. Varying hemline is hard to do, however when done right it really stands out and looks wonderful!

Cropped Shirts: This trend seems to be VERY popular for Spring 2013! We see this showing up in many different fashion shows so far. Make sure when wearing this trend to wear a more conservative bottom. Also, make sure the outfit is in good taste! I personally like to pair a cropped shirt with high wasted short.
