From Summer to Fall

If you're like me, you love to transition dresses between seasons.  This tribal print dress is one of my absolute favorites and a great dress to wear well into fall.  For a fun touch, wear some navy heels instead of the typical neutral shoe.  When the weather gets a bit chillier, add a cardigan and you're ready to go!

Faking Vintage

So, you love the vintage look but your mom didn't save any of her incredibly retro wardrobe? Don't fret.  Places like Urban Outfitters and Mod Cloth have a generous selection of replicas and sometimes even the real thing.  One of the easiest and trendiest ways to achieve the vintage look is to pair a romper with some canvas or leather flats.  This is one of the best combos I've found.

Easy Street

This style is one of my favorites.  Start out with a colored jean (red is going to be really hot this fall), add a tank top and a slouchy cotton vest, and top it off with a contrasting colored necklace.  Good color combos: red and turquoise, navy and coral, deep purple and gold, cream and olive green.  Don't be afraid to play with colors because everyone is going to be doing it this season!  Be a trendsetter instead of a fashion follower.

J.Crew: Extra 40% Off Sale Until Tuesday!

If you know me, you know how much  I love a good sale, especially at J.Crew.  You should also know that I hate catching the tail end of a sale when all that is left are the 0s we all convince ourselves we will fit in one day.  (Keep on dreaming.)  Now thru Tuesday at midnight, J.Crew is offering an extra 40% off their sale items! This only happens a couple times a year, so take advantage of it and stock up! I've listed a few of my favorite things at their discounted prices.  Hope you aren't reading this on Wednesday!

One Skirt: Two Ways

It's always exciting finding an awesome article of clothing like this suedette skirt ($15.80) and actually knowing what to wear with it!  There's nothing more frustrating than convincing yourself to buy something daring and letting it hang in your closet because you can't figure out what to put it with.  I took this statement piece and made two different looks with it.  The green silk tank top ($30) and my favorite neutral wedges ($19.97)  make it a great outfit for a bachelorette party or a date night.  The black top ($29.99), opaque black tights ($5.95) and leather booties($27.80) give it more of the rocker-chic appeal.

Back to School Necessities

Wearing pajamas to class was fun while it lasted, but let's face it; freshman year is over.  It's time to start dressing your age, even in that horrible 8am class. In the same amount of time that you can put on an old t-shirt and athletic shorts, you could throw on a couple of these options instead.  Luckily for us, the messy bun and little-to-no makeup look are in right now.  Just throw your hair up with a few bobby pins, swipe on some lip gloss and try to stay awake in class. Oh, and did I mention everything is under $35??

Jeans and a White T-shirt

There is nothing better than a crisp white t-shirt and a great pair of jeans.  My absolute favorite pair of inexpensive jeans are the Divas at Old Navy ($29.50 in boot-cut).  They look great in every cut and come in 3 lengths and 3 shades.  If I could give a money back guarantee on any item, it would be these.  (Obviously I don't have the money to back up that guarantee; hence this blog.)  You also can't beat a great white t-shirt, and I've found 3 I swear by: J.Crew's Tissue V-Neck Classic Tee, Target's Mossimo Pocket Tee, and my current favorite, Old Navy's V-Neck Pocket Tees ($10.50).  To finish the look, throw on a scarf or simple necklace ($1.50) and these AMAZING boots ($36.94) that will take you from one season to the next.

Ready-to-Wear

Everyone has that one "go to" dress when their closet is filled with overly familiar and seemingly unattractive clothes.  This dress is comfortable, easy to wear and has never failed you in the compliments department.  If your dress is on it's last leg, it's time to let go and move on to this treasure.  It's an Apache print spaghetti strap dress ($24.80) and is perfect to throw on when you're in a hurry.  If you're going for a casual look, throw on some black sandals($12.99) and simple earrings.  Total = $38
       **I also found the dress at TJMaxx for $16.99**

Fall Preview

In lieu of the nicer weather today, I decided to do a fall preview look.  I may be a bit hopeful, but it's never too early to start planning. (Especially since everywhere is getting in fall clothes already!) You could do this look with the funky tights I found, or stick to a solid color for a more professional look.  This dress ($31.03) will take you from summer straight into fall and even in the early winter with a colored pea-coat.  These boots ($19.99) are some of the best I've found...they are a great height and have thicker heels to keep you stable.  The tights ($12.75) are a great way to play up the outfit and make it your own.
