Fall Roundup: Items I’m Loving

Cute Autumn Style Ideas

 

Hi everyone! It’s been a while, but I’m back! It’s been a hectic couple of weeks, especially leading up to my trip to Rome. I’m working on a trip recap post and I cannot wait to share it with you all as soon as it’s ready. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite fall items at the moment. If this is something you all like, I’ll try to do these types of post more often.

ONE. TURTLENECK CAPE
I love this cape because all you have to do is throw it on over some leggings and, boom, you’ve got a super chic fall outfit in no time. It does shed, so I avoid wearing it with fabrics that pick up fibers easily.

TWO. EVERYDAY BLACK DRESS
This dress is the best! I was on the fence about purchasing it, but SO happy I did because it’s my go-to this season. It looks great with boots and any fall layer. Seriously, you name it – coat, sweater, cape, cardigan, scarf – this dress is perfect.

THREE. MVMT ICON SUNGLASSES
I seriously love round frame glasses. I feel like they add an effortlessly chic touch to every outfit – so easy! I’m all about this dark on dark style for winter, too. Use KITTYSHEA15 for 15% off storewide.

FOUR. VELVET BOW HAIR TIES
How cute are these bows?! Now, they may seem a little bit pricey, but I promise you they’ll become one of your favorite accessories, maybe ever. I bought these in black, gold, and mauve, but I’m already thinking about getting the rest of the colors.

FIVE. MVMT LEXINGTON WATCH 
This watch is so gorgeous and sleek that I think they should sell it in the jewelry section and call it a bracelet. This style is my by far my favorite and pairs well with everything, too. You can use KITTYSHEA15 for 15% off this watch, or anything in the store.

SIX. GOLD SPECKLED MUG
Every have a mug so cute you don’t want to hid it away in a cupboard? This mug would be great for the office or as a holiday gift.

SEVEN. POM POM THROW (FAUX FUR)
My favorite thing to do on cold nights is snuggle up on the couch and watch movies. I’m all about comfort, so my blankets neeeeeeed to be soft and cozy. This faux-fur throw is amazing because it’s not just super cozy, it also dresses up a room perfectly.

EIGHT. KNIT BEANIE 
This chunky cable knit beanie is so stylish and adorable that I may have worn it in 50 degree weather because I was so excited. Oops 🙂 

NINE. CAMEL TWILL COAT 
I’m not sure I can describe exactly how stinkin’ happy I was when I found this cruelty-free camel twill coat! (Seriously, finding good winter wear that’s not made from wool is a challenge!) It’s warm, the color works well for Fall through Spring, and the tailored cut is perfect for work. Long story short, it’s basically the best coat ever.

Hair Scarves Are The Best Thing That’s Happened To Fashion Since Off-The-Shoulder Tops

Hair Scarves Are The Best Thing That’s Happened To Fashion Since Off-The-Shoulder Tops

IMG_6031

Hair scarves are the best thing that’s happened to fashion since off-the-shoulder tops. That’s right, you heard me. This hair scarf trend is where it’s at. I tried it on a whim and I’ve become an instant believer! Seriously guys, I don’t think I’ll feel right wearing a ponytail without a hair scarf anytime in the near future. I love how they can dress up your hairdo in a feminine, easy way, without giving off that childlike feel that traditional bows can have.

The best part about it is that if you know where to look, you can snag a bunch on the cheap. There’s no reason to pony up serious money for a scarf. Plus, most of the really expensive ones (I’m looking at you, Hermès) are silk aka not cruelty-free. If you’re shopping for hair scarves make sure the material is satin, not silk. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite satin options that are between $7-$30 to help stock your accessory drawer.

Have you tried the hair scarf trend? If so, tell me what you think in the comments below!

My Go-To Summer Outfit

I don’t care what anyone says, I love floral patterns. It’s possible I love them a little too much. If I was the early 90s, there’s a 60-80% chance I would have a floral-pattern couch or drapes… or both. Once, in college, before I really started to understand fashion and what works, I wore a floral dress to a party and a guy told me I looked like a couch. My immediate reaction was a big non-sarcastic “Thank you!” It took me a solid couple of minute before I realized it was not a compliment.

Luckily for me, I grew into my fashion sense and can embrace my love for floral patterns in a stylish way. Privacy Please kills the game when it comes to feminine floral patterns. This Brisco Dress is one of my all-time favorites and a spring/summer go-to item the second it gets warm enough. It pairs perfectly with my round straw bag, which is cruelty-free! I can’t even begin to tell you how long I searched for a top notch, vegan straw bag. Most straw bags have got some sneaky leather somewhere on them, usually the straps, but not this one! Credit goes to Mama Kath for this one. AND it’s only $67 – what a steal.

What I Wore In Munich & Vienna: Full Outfit Details

What I Wore In Munich & Vienna: Full Outfit Details

While I’ve been to Europe before, this year I *finally* felt like I packed correctly. While I would take a few less items and do somethings differently, I basically wore everything in my suitcase without over wearing any one item, which is a massive packing WIN. I’ve done too many trips where I put clothing before being practical and it was a nightmare. So this time around, I was determined to bring a good mix of items, pack fabrics that were breathable and walkable, and wear flats. (For those of you who know me, this is a big deal since I’m almost always in 3-4 inch heels. But I found these adorable and cheap vegan flats and added them to my rotation.)

This season, I’m stocking up on summer staples and this Limonada Ruffle Mini Dress is topping my list of favorites. I can already tell I’ll be wearing it nonstop as the days get warmer. It’s so fun and flowy – I had the best time shooting in it. Because the print gave me serious Florida vibes, I paired the dress with a straw bag tote and cork wedge sandals to keep the tropical theme going.
