Sweater Weather





One of my favorite things to wear this time of year are oversize sweaters. I love how comfy they are, but that they are still appropriate to wear out during the day. These are a few of my current favorite sweater styles. I have recently been drawn to grey and burgundy colored sweaters. They are great neutral fall colors that can go so well with many different bottoms such as a dark wash jean, leggings, or even a skater skirt. I also like the pattern and sweaters with cute little sayings. My favorite is the DVF "love is life" sweater.

I've been seeing quilted items pop up everywhere this fall. From handbags, to shoes and sweaters they are becoming a popular texture on fashion items. Quilted materials add a fun texture to items that will really make them standout. The quilted look always reminds me of the Chanel quilted bags that I frequently dream about. Unfortunately those bags aren't in most people's price range, however, you can still get that quilted look for a much cheaper price with the Rebecca Minkoff look-alike. I don't really wear sweatshirts too much unless I'm lounging around the house, but this ASOS one looks so comfy and gives a casual chic look. I'm also loving the Mango leather jacket. I really like the small quilted detailing on the shoulders that adds some texture to the jacket but isn't overwhelming with an allover quilted pattern. What do you think about the quilted trend?

Holiday Red Lip

While I love a natural look, a bright lip is always fun. This lip color by BA STAR is called Holiday Red, which I think is a perfect name for this color. I've recently been wearing lip colors more frequently and this is one of my favorite red colors especially for the holidays. I love the full coverage this lip pencil gives, the matte smooth texture, and that it stays in place all day!  I definitely feel very glamorous when wearing Holiday Red. Because of the bright lip color, I wanted to keep the rest of my look very simple. I used a light weight BB Cream by Smashbox and then added some color to my face with the Hoola bronzer by Benefit. I also put a thin line of eyeliner on the top of my eyes to open them up and then added a few coats of mascara. By keeping the rest of my makeup basic, my lip color was really able to stand out. I will definitely be wearing this color a lot during the next few months. 
BA STAR has so many fun makeup products that aren't just for cheerleaders, dancers, or other competitors. They have amazing products for everyone to wear, that are especially great during the holiday months. I love all the glitter eye shadows and eyeliners. They also have great blush, bronzers, mascara, and of course lip pencils. BA STAR makeup allows for creativity, so have fun and experiment with their bold colors and glitter. The company has extremely affordable high quality makeup. They also have makeup tutorials which you can watch here

New Boots

I can not tell you how excited I am about my new NastyGal x Jeffrey Campbell booties! I've been eyeing them for a few weeks, and finally decided to order them during NastyGal's sale last week. I love a heeled ankle boot for the fall. The chunky wood heel on these give me height but still feel appropriate for a casual day look. The leather is slightly distressed but is still a dark black which is what I've been looking for. I also really like the strap detail on the side with the gold hardware. I have so many outfit ideas that I can't wait to wear these with. They will look perfect with tights and a dress or skinnies and a loose tee. I also love them in this color!
