Booties to Fall for!

                                            10 Under $200
It's Fall and as the crisp chilly air begins to drift in, most of us trade our peep toe pumps and minimalist sandals for booties. If you are in market for a new pair or just want to update your closet, here are a few booties that will surely get you noticed. Just because it's Autumn doesn't mean your footwear has to fall flat or boring. Mix it up a little with these trendy fun beauties.

I am crazy in love with the perforated metallics from Victoria's secret and what I personally call "studded and stunning" from Aldos. I 'm still working up a reason to get them other than "they are freaking gorgeous". If you get them, leave a comment and let me know what you think.

                                            Have a great week!

The Shirtdress

        Starting up the new week with a post featuring this little number- a Joe Fresh shirtdress also at JCP.
It was literally love at first sight, with what look's like a mixture of camouflage and floral prints.
It's the perfect combination of comfort and style (and affordability, of course). It's got pockets, I don't know about you guys but I love the little unexpectedness of dresses with pockets: perfect for my Iphone that I keep dropping and cracking.
(I have been discovering lots of cool pieces at JCP, quite frankly, I love the new JCP).

 There was a battle of purses. I debated between highlighting the green or highlighting the mustard elements in this dress. But instead of sticking with one color, I thought "why not do both?!"  By simply changing purses I accomplished . I styled the dress both ways. No Jacket means warm day! Yay! Guess which purse I ended up wearing out.

Shop your Closet: Casual Jeans and Blazer

    Confession: I love to shop a lot! Most of us do.
    Fact: Most of the time we don't have to- even in those I don't have anything to wear moments.
    True or False: We already own the essentials for a great outfit (true, look in your closet, if you already shop so much, umm yes, you do).
    Trick: Timeouts. 
        "I give myself shopping time outs and get a challenge to create new outfits with what's already in my closet. Half the time, I still have the tags on some of my clothes"
              Trends are wonderful and I like to stay on top of trends but no one needs a new dress every time they have coffee with the girls or go see a movie. Come on! So I shop my closet. In the process, I rediscover my favorite pieces.
  • This is more effective with an organized closet. It gives you a better view of whats in it.
  • Go for the basics and the classics- mix them up.
  • For example: The blazer- always a classic. A great pair of Jeans- almost everyone owns a pair. Add your personality with your favorite accessories and a great pair of heels, I'm sure you can't go wrong!
     So here's your challenge!

Je T'aime: Black N White

Here is something a little different than what I usually wear.
A fun skirt with "bold" words in every sense of the word (Je t'aime means I love you); which I got for a steal from F21.
When trying out a new trend, I start out with a very affordable piece (a cheapy, if I may), just in case it doesn't work out.  Forever 21 is my go -to for that.
This fall, the black and white trend is still in. Play with some black and white in different textures, or colors grey and white. Just make it your own and have fun with it.

Animal Instinct: Leopard & Leather

   Grudgingly, I am beginning to acknowledge that fall is here; but since it's still warm I started incorporating fall trends into my outfits by wearing simple layers like this.
 For me, wearing leopard prints can border on tacky when overdone, so I try to keep them as simple and uncluttered as possible. Since leopard prints are great statement pieces, when styling an outfit, I would either use a piece as the main focus of an outfit, or as an accent to an outfit.  Never both.
Here, I kept my jewelery to a minimum and threw on a light  leather vest to complete the look.
