Fall 2015′s Hottest Trends

Massively Flared Jeans: Massively Flared Jeans

Easily one of my favorite trends this fall would be the sweater poncho. Bonus points if it’s boho and fringe-y like this one! This particular piece is from Free People and I’ll take 3 please.

Everything’s classier with stripes and black. This fur stole, one of fall’s revival trends, is coming back and replacing the statement scarf this season.Worn with neutrals, this amps up your style factor while pulling double duty as it keeps you warm in cooler weather.

I’m a big fan of the bandana trend myself, and am now needing a black bandana to complete this “cool girl” neural look for the weekends.

I’ve been a fan of this trend since a few weeks ago when I modeled it at the Teen Vogue Fashion Show. It’s surprisingly easy to snag one that’s reasonably priced.

This is a trend that is so hard for me to find right now! I know H&M had these trench vests, but if any of you find one that’s under $50, let me know!

Mimi Elashiry by Amath Magnan

Off the shoulder tops are cute & retro, but when paired with fall’s wide brimmed hats and ripped dark jeans, they easily look sophisticated and posh for autumn. See how I styled mine here.

Mmm, fringe. These vintage fringe jackets for fall are just as cute on over a work blouse as they are on the weekends over a graphic tee. Dying to snag one just like this.

Well, I made it through the first week at the new job. I have to say, I feel really good about it. I definitely made the right move because I love  my school and am happy to go to work. Everyone has been wonderful and so have the kids. I miss some of my girls from my old school but happy that they aren’t far away! :)

Lately, I’ve become obsessed with all of the fall fashion trends emerging in the magazines. Particularly, trends like fringe, neutrals, bandannas, lace up heels, wide brimmed fedoras, minimalism, and of course–off the shoulder tops have all struck my fancy lately.

However, finding the perfect off the shoulder top was a lot tougher than I originally thought it was going to be. I wanted to find a top that flattered and wasn’t cropped. This one fit the bill while simultaneously being cute with its bohemian-type print. And of course blue is my favorite color, so naturally I gravitated toward this one. I believe it’s on sale right now on Shopbop for around $30.

I’ve also gotten into rings as of late. This roman numeral ring from Sorella Jewelry is the newest addition to my daily jewelry ensemble. Being made of sterling silver, it goes perfectly with my engagement ring and is the perfect delicate statement for everyday. The store’s most popular ring is also available in other metals like 10k yellow and white gold, 14k yellow, white, and rose gold, palladium, and platinum. Best part is, you get to pick a date that’s special to you, making it the perfect gift for someone (even if that someone is yourself!). I love how thick it is and how obviously well-made. Sorella makes every item to order and does custom work daily.

I chose my birthday because it’s a date that will always stay with me. I’m hoping to get another eventually with Nate and my wedding date on it. I just love the idea of having a piece of jewelry so personal for everyday wear–it’s like the new monogram necklace. If you’re looking to fimd a special birthday gift, anniversary gift, or even wedding gift browse their site  {Facebook & Instagram} and check them out, they’re amazing.

Switching topics right quick–if you’re in the Orlando or Tampa area, come check out Whimsy Boutique [where I got these shorts!] from 4-7pm where I’ll be hosting their end-of-summer soiree where you’ll get goodie bags, styling advice, makeup, music, skincare, and much more while enjoying time with the girls. Bring whoever, everyone’s invited! I’m bringing Nate, we’ll see how badly he wants to kill me after hanging out around clothes and makeup even more than normal… :)

So yesterday was National Dog Day and when I came home, my dog got me a little surprise–a completely chewed up bucket bag! Thanks, Henna! Ughhh, I love her though :)

My newest Stitch Fix came in the mail yesterday and while I wasn’t a huge fan before, this week’s loot changed my mind. I’m a huge fan of the flowy dress, which I wore in this post. Paired with rich fall colors like brown and mustard (my fave!) florals are easily transitioned to autumn.

Luckily, our heat wave is still here, however I’m hoping Tropical Storm Erika dissipates before it reaches Florida. If you live in the south be prepared and stay safe :) Have a great Friday!

Love this quote. I become my most creative this time of year. This is when all the fun new things crop up in my house!
