Bring out the Fur.

During the cold winter days we all want to keep warm and look great at the same time, but sometimes that’s hard to do. While in NYC I saw all the New Yorkers bundled up in fur to keep warm on those chilly days. It was so cute and very trendy at the same time! I was just obsessed and I had to get some for myself, but sadly I’m living off of a lifeguards salary so I was unable to come home with any. Once I got home I looked through all my winter attire and found some great fur pieces! I found black fur earmuffs, a fur scarf, and a fur vest!
Here are some of my favorite fur pieces this winter:

What is your favorite fur piece this season?

Obsession Over Oxfords.

(Madden Girl, American Rag, Restricted)

(Madden Girl, American Rag, Restricted)


One of my favorite shoes to wear is oxfords, because they are simple but extremely cute! Colored soles on oxfords are a great way to just show a little flair to your outfit without going too crazy. And if your feeling daring try a pattered or bright colored pair!
Some of my favorite oxfords this season:

These shoes are so cute because of how bright and colorful they are! The color makes a statement, yet it’s still very feminine. When styling these shoes with your outfit make sure the colors don’t clash. Try even pairing these with a black circle skirt for a playful look.

(Kate Spade)

These shoes are just adorable with the cutouts on the side! The color would look perfect with a pair of jeans or even a sundress in the summer!

A metallic oxford, like this one, is a great way to show your style! Pair these shoes with black jeans for a super cute look!

Some of my favorite oxfords are just simple men’s wear inspired all leather shoes. I would personally wear these shoes with everything since they are so versatile! The bow adds a cute feminine touch!

What is your favorite pair of oxfords?

What time is it?

watches
I love wearing watches for two main reasons: you will always know the time, and they are super cute! Watches are a timeless accessory, they will never go out of style. Different watch trends will come and go, but wearing one on a day to day basis is always in style!
When I got dressed this morning I was going for a comfortable easy outfit. I was planning on meeting my mom for lunch so I wanted to look cute, like always, but be able to get dressed quickly so I could leave. I wore a blue and white striped button down shirt, jeans, and brown riding boots. For accessories I quickly grabbed a fabulous multi-strand necklace, a large blue striped bag, and my favorite watch.

Emerald: The color of Spring 2013

When someone talks about the color emerald, I immediately think of the Wizard of Oz and the Emerald City. Well now, that city is coming to life! Emerald is the new color of the season and it’s in full swing.

Beauty:
I walked into Sephora over the weekend and was overwhelmed with the amount of emerald makeup on display. From eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, even emerald colored hairspray, they have anything you could possibly want.

Eye shadow-
emerald eyeshadow
Nars has a great nude and emerald eye shadow pallet. It is simple but would look amazing if done right. It might be hard for you to ever think of using emerald eye shadow so I found a step by step guide on Sephora’s Pinterest. Give it a try and let me know what you think! 🙂

All of these beauty products are available at Sephora.

Inspiration-
Here are a collection of photos from Pinterest to give you some inspiration for the next time you shop for an emerald look!

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!
Love, Juli
