I don’t know about you, but I am so guilty of impulse buying clothes, especially during the fall.  Sometimes it’s hard to resist the trends, even when you know they can only be worn for a short time before it gets cold (front button skirt I’m looking at you!).  That being said, you want a closet full of clothes that will carry you from season to season, not just pieces that are ideal for a few weeks at a time.  That’s why it’s so important to make sure that you are stocked with the essentials.  Four pieces that I can’t go without are a vest, a gingham or plaid button up shirt, a floppy hat, and some ankle booties.  Not only can you mix and match these items in a countless number of ways during the fall and winter, but they can also be worn year after year without going out of style.

TIP: To get the most out of your closet, try to purchasing as many of these pieces as you can in a neutral color so that they go with everything.  You’ll never have that, “I have nothing to wear!” moment again.  What are your fall essentials?

Side note: I’m totally loving the vampy lips for fall.  Revlon “Black Cherry” was the perfect color to match this burgundy hat!  This lipstick is normally glossy so I dusted some translucent powder over it to create the matte effect that I love.

Love,

Hi friends!  I picked up this faux fur vest at Target for half off a few weeks ago and I’m loving it.  When my sister first saw it on the rack, she was like, “Nope, hate it, too shaggy,” but when I showed it to her with this outfit she completely changed her mind.  What I think is great about this vest, is that it doesn’t overpower you, like some of the larger ones.  The shagginess gives it some texture, but it fits close to the body so you retain your figure.  

I paired it with my new vegan leather jeggings from H&M.  For anyone who is on the hunt for some leather pants, I highly recommend trying to find a pair of jeggings!  I tried on both leggings and vegan leather pants from a variety of stores and none fit quite right.  The pants get too bunchy and were very uncomfortable.  When I tried the leggings they just didn’t seem to look as put together as the pants.  These H&M jeggings fit perfectly, and they are so comfortable!

Thanks for visiting my blog! (:

Love,

The 4th of July is in just a few days and I wanted to give you guys a few outfit ideas for the occasion.  All of these outfits were created using the same crop top.  What is even more amazing is that this top was purchased at H&M for only $4.00 for their 4th of July sale!

For the first outfit I used my H&M crop top and put some Forever 21 overalls over it to create a playful and comfortable look.

Outfit #1

Crop Top: H&M

Overalls: Forever 21

The second outfit was actually my favorite.  I will most likely be wearing this outfit for 4th of July this year to a party I’m going too. (:  I used the same crop top from H&M paired with a skirt I found at a store called Who. A. U.  For those of you who don’t have this store in your area, Who. A. U. is a store with a California kind of vibe.  They have clothes similar to a Hollister or Abercrombie, but with better sales.  I purchased my sunglasses at Forever 21.  You will probably see me wearing these all the time I love them.  They have tiny black polka dots on them.

Outfit #2

Crop Top: H&M

Skirt: Who. A. U.

Sunglasses: Forever 21

My last outfit is definitely the most festive being that it is the only outfit I incorporated red into.  Sorry guys I don’t own a ton of red! :0 These red shorts are from the store Wet Seal.  I wouldn’t say I’m a frequent shopper at Wet Seal, because sometimes the quality is iffy, but these shorts were an amazing buy.  They are made out of this stretchy fabric instead of jeans, so they’re super comfy to wear.  My top is the same H&M crop top of course, and the kimono is from Hollister Co.  I hadn’t bought something from Hollister in about a year prior to this.  I walked in because I saw they were having a sale and found this beautiful kimono for $10.00!  You really can’t beat it.

Outfit #3

Crop Top: H&M

Shorts: Wet Seal

Kimono: Hollister Co.
