The weather here in NJ is FINALLY starting to cool down! Granted, the afternoons are still 80 degrees, but the mornings and nights are chilly and perfect. The other day I went apple picking with some of my family, and we had the best time! It was chilly enough for me to wear my new ultimate favorite sweater and I was way excited about it. I saw this sweater a month or two ago at H&M, and even though I knew I wouldn’t be wearing it for a while I had to snag it! It was one of those moments in movies when the main character sees something so beautiful that all the lights dim, and there is a spotlight on the beautiful object and the angels are singing from heaven. It was basically like that only not quite as dramatic. Not only is it super soft and snuggly, but there is a full on sass party on the back. The back embroidery is not itchy at all, which is really awesome because no one likes an itchy sweater. I’m all about quirky slogans and sayings on my clothes. I think it adds something fun and different and gives my outfit personality. I decided to pair the sweater with some distressed jeans, and red Keds! This sweater is super versatile though and can be worn with so many things! It would be adorable with a skirt, leather pants, leggings, the list goes on! I know I’m going to get sooo much wear out of this baby, I totally recommend it 1000%!! I’m not sure if it’s available online, so if not I’ll link something similar!! Definitely head to your local H&M to see if they have it!! 🙂

This was the best apple cider donut I’ve ever had. This is what pure joy looks like lol

How pretty are these mums??? 

My fam gets just as excited about donuts as I do 😉

How cute are my little cousins?? 🙂

Have you done anything fall festive yet?? I can’t wait to carve pumpkins, go to haunted attractions, watch scary movies, and celebrate Halloween!! Let me know what you’re excited for in the comments! I love hearing about it and getting some inspiration 🙂 More autumnal posts are coming soon so stick around by subscribing!! 🙂

Stay chic babes!

Now that I’m no longer a student, Sunday has become one of my favorite days of the week. I think Sundays are just a day full of chilling, food, adventuring, and being cozy. Sundays in the fall are even better, and you gotta have a great outfit for Sunday Funday 😉 As I mentioned in my last post, I’m in loveeee with mom jeans. Not only is the name amazing in itself, but they are just the most comfortable jeans ever. I only have one pair at the moment, but I’m sure there will be more to come soon 😉 On this chilly Sunday my boyfriend and I spent the day walking around a cute little town nearby. We got some lunch, some Starbucks (obviously), and just had a really fun day spending time together enjoying the weather. Although dressing up is fun, my favorite outfit is a casual one. Just some good ol’ jeans, a soft tee, some sneakers (or mules depending on the look I’m going for), and I’m good to take on the day 🙂

How cute is this hat my bf got me?? He’s pretty fashion forward himself 😉

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and it inspired you in some way 🙂 What is your favorite causal day outfit?? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

I’m sure by now you’re aware that pumpkin spice everything has officially taken over. I’m guilty of already having quite a fair amount of pumpkin coffee and I’m not mad about it in the slightest. I am SO excited for fall because not only is the fashion amazing and the food to die for, but I love the cozy feeling, chilly weather, and fun activities 🙂 There are sooo many fun things I have planned to do this upcoming fall season, but there are also a few fashion items I have my eye on that I’m dying to get! Here are some of my fall wardrobe wishlist items!

I wasn’t sure about this trend at first, but now I am completely in love and I want to own every single pair. I think mules/loafers are a perfect fall shoe, especially transitioning into the fall from summer!! They are so easy to pair with any outfit to make it look chic and trendy! All of the shoes featured in the image are from Vici!

This is a no brainer. I think that every gal and guy has an abundance of sweaters in their closet waiting to get broken out once the chilly weather arrives in full. Even though I have plenty of sweaters, I always want more. There are always new styles, colors, fits, and designs that I want to try! Right now I’m loving the look of oversized slouchy sweaters that are the epitome of coziness. I cannot wait to wrap myself in a big, chunky sweater and buy as many as I can afford lolol 🙂 All the sweaters featured are from Love Street Apparel (one of my all time fave online stores!! It can be a little bit pricy, but buying pieces here and there doesn’t hurt 😉).

I think it’s safe to say that Mom Jeans are my new favorite style of jeans. They are relaxed, comfortable, and super trendy. They make an outfit look effortless yet put together. My favorite place to get some good mom jeans is Asos, but American Eagle, Forever 21, and other great brands sell awesome mom jeans as well! I love that this style of denim goes with sneakers, heels, flats and every shoe in between. They are a staple for fall, and I’m yearning to own more pairs!!

Being a “poser” is something I never want to be presumed as. But when it comes to band tees, that’s a different story. I think an oversized band tee is such an effortless, chic way to make an outfit look trendy and fun. So screw the people that criticize you for wearing the tee of a band you don’t listen to, because if it’s cute and sold at a store you love then you deserve to wear the heck out of it. All of these tees featured are from Forever 21!

Red. Like the infamous T-Swift album, red is the color of Fall 2017. I’m going to be honest and say I’ve probably only owned three red articles of clothing my entire life, but I am excited to incorporate it into my wardrobe this upcoming season. It is definitely out of my comfort zone, but fashion is all about exploring and testing out new things!! Here are some adorable red pieces I found at Asos!!

There ya have it! These are just a few things I’m looking forward to trying out this fall! What are some things on your wardrobe wishlist?? Let me know in the comments, I would love to know and maybe add them to mine 🙂

Hey babes!

I am so excited for today’s post. I’ve been working on it for so long, and I really hope you enjoy it! I’ll definitely be doing more look books for the seasons, and if you guys have specific look books you want to see I would be more than happy to do them for you!

So recently, I’ve done some shopping. Way more than I should have, but hey…clothes are a necessity and when you can get them for great prices I say why the heck not 🙂 I’m going to be showing you guys five outfits that are perfect for fall no matter what mood you happen to be in. I have a sporty look, a casual look, a chic look, and everything in between. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Outfit 1: Corduroy and Velvet 

This out fit is definitely one of my favorites! I saw this adorable overall dress on Aspyn Ovard a few months ago, and HAD to get it. It’s absolutely perfect for a warmer fall day. I honestly never thought I could pull off overalls or overall dresses, but it turns out they are way more versatile than I thought! This dress can be dressed up with booties and a sweater like I did, or you could throw a tee underneath and some Adidas or Converse and it’s just as cute! I do need to talk about these booties for a minute though. HOW AMAZING?? Urbanog has quickly become my absolute favorite shoe shopping destination. Their shoes are so affordable, well made, and freaking adorable!! Wine is a huge color this fall, so I thought these booties were a perfect way to incorporate them into the look 🙂

Booties: Urbanog

Sweater: Arie

Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters

Outfit 2: Keep It Comfy

I am completely and totally obsessed with every article of clothing from this outfit. It’s so comfy, soft, and perfect for a casual fall day. American Eagle has stepped up their game when it comes to the softness of their clothes. I think their clothes have always been pretty comfy, but now they are like clouds and I just want to buy it all! My favorite part is once again, THE SHOES 😍 These babies are from Urbanog as well, and probably my favorite shoes I have bought in a while! I am in love with the velvet trend this year, and I think a velvet sneaker is a really fun and different way to sport the trend. The blush pink color is also another reason I’m so in love with them! Overall this is such a perfect outfit with the right amount of statement to make some heads turn.

Outfit 3: Sporty Chic

I wouldn’t consider myself to be a “sporty” girl. I never was very good at sports, (I’m extremely uncoordinated), yet I do have a soft spot for the sporty girl look. I think sneakers are highly underrated and should definitely be paired with more than just a sweatshirt and yoga pants. For this look I dressed down an off the shoulder top from American Eagle by adding a leather baseball cap from Charlotte Russe and some basic Adidas sneakers. I think this look is really fun, yet sexy. The off the shoulder top adds so much to the outfit, and gives it a cool mix of looks being paired with the sneakers and cap.

Outfit 4: Fringy Fun

Forever 21 is the place to go to get affordable sweaters that are soft, comfy, and super freaking adorable. The fringe detailing on the turtleneck caught my eye as soon as I entered the store. To be honest, if it was just a regular gray turtleneck with no fringe detailing, I probably wouldn’t have impulsively bought it. The fringe is what makes it so cute, fun, and completely irresistible. I decided to dress the sweater up a bit by adding some dark jeggings from New York & Company and some over the knee boots from Charlotte Russe. The great thing about the sweater is that it can be dressed down as well with some distressed denim, and some sneakers!

Sweater: Forever 21 (the sweater is only available in stores, so I linked one that looks just as comfy😊)

Jeggings: New York & Company (not exact, but very similar and on sale!!)

Boots: Charlotte Russe

Outfit 5: Mixing Texture

Fuzzy cardigan? ✅ Distressed jeans? ✅ Fringe booties? ✅ Chunky scarf? ✅ This outfit has it all. Mixing textures is such a fun way to add something special to an outfit. It makes your outfit stand out, and gives you such a unique look which I absolutely love. Fuzzy sweaters are my go-to for the winter time. I’m a sucker for anything fluffy, fuzzy, or furry. Distressed denim of any kind is also a staple piece for me. Here I am wearing some distressed boyfriend jeans, but any type of jean looks cute distressed let’s be real. The adorable shoes were so kindly shared with my from my awesome sister who actually filmed and photographed all the looks! Peep toe booties are so perfect for the beginning of fall before it gets too chilly. They are an excellent combination of summer and fall mixed into one shoe. Overall this look is really fun, eye-catching, and comfortable! What more is there to ask for? 😉

This post is not sponsored. I purchased all the clothes and accessories with my own money. 

Hey fashionistas!

I’m going to be real with you all. I have a bit an addiction. It is severe, but it’s not life-threatening. It’s called “I-can’t-stop-buying-shoes-itis.” Don’t worry, the only thing it hurts is my bank account, but hey…when you buy three pairs of shoes for the price of one expensive pair I say it’s totally worth it.

Today I’m going to talk about one of my favorite trends for the fall…over the knee boots! They’re stylish, sexy, and add a little somethin’ somethin’ to make your outfit complete! Now there are some over the knee boots that are gorgeous, but cost way too many digits for me. If you’re not into spending $300+ on boots, then you came to the right place. I’m so excited to share my top three favorite over the knee boots with you all! 🙂

I can’t rave enough about these babies! These boots are not only gorgeous, they’re sooo affordable!! Stuart Weitzman boots look almost exactly the same, and they retail at $798. Don’t get me wrong, the Stuart Weitzman boots are stunning, and I’m sure incredible quality…but this girl does not and will not ever justify spending that much on shoes. So I went on a hunt and found a dupe for the incredibly expensive boots for about $761 less! If that doesn’t tickle your fancy I don’t know what will. These exact boots are from Charlotte Russe, but unfortunately are sold out on the site 🙁 Here is a super similar and equally inexpensive pair from Urbanog! (plus this pair comes in a bunch of colors! Bonus!)

I am an avid ASOS shopper. They have some of the most affordable, cutest clothes that are always on trend and speak to my style. Last year as I was scrolling through the site, I noticed these boots. I instantly fell in love with not only the boots, but the brand as well. The brand is a European one called Daisy Street. Not only is the name super cute, but they have some of the most unique and awesome shoes! I will admit they are a tad more pricey than Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe, but nothing too crazy and definitely still in the affordable range. These boots are so soft, comfy, and they dress up any outfit with ease. Since I did buy these boots last year, sadly they are not available anymore…but I did find a super similar pair on the Daisy Street site that are actually more trendy!

So far I’ve shown you guys boots in all the essential colors; black, gray, and now tan/brown. There is something very unique about this camel color. Not only is it super trendy right now, but it also gives your outfit a sophisticated look. There is also something special about heeled over the knee boots as well. Even though I love my flat ones, adding some height makes me feel like I’m walking the runway everywhere I go. Heeled over the knee boots add a bit more sexy and a lot more shazam to an outfit! While flat over the knee boots are perfect for everyday, adding some heel to the already fab boots takes things to a whole new level (literally and figuratively). Now before you yell at me and say “Jeez, Dana. You haven’t shown us any of the exact boots you have wtf” hear me out. Although the boots I have are sold out because they are from last year also, I did find an extremely similar pair that I honestly like better! 🙂

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! There’s a blog post coming shortly on ways to style over the knee boots! So make sure you have yours so you can create the looks 🙂 Let me know of any over the knee boots you recommend! You can never have too many boots 🙂

Stay Stylin’
