Chunky Sweater Weather

The weather is finally getting cooler here and starting to feel like fall.  Trending in fashion right now is the chunky sweater! Who doesn't want a warm and cozy sweater? They go with distressed jeans, pegged jeans, or faux leather pants.  I've always had an appreciate for quality sweaters since my mother used to knit all my sweaters as a child. I keep my sweaters either rolled up in a drawer or folded on a shelf in my closet. I never put them in the washing machine, they get hand washed and laid flat to dry. Cooler weather doesn't have to stop you from looking stylish. Linked below are some pieces that will make your outfit standout and look powerful. The sweater I'm wearing is shown in black below but comes in three colors and is made of super soft alpaca fiber. Alpacas are an animal from Peru and once a year their fleece is sheared off which is a painless process for them. What's your favorite way to style a chunky sweater?

Over The Knee Boot Trend

I was late to the Over the Knee Boot trend having bought my first pair last year (see this post) but they soon became my favorite purchase. I wasn't sure how practical they would be or how often I'd wear them. But I've actually wore them 7 times in a year! How do I know that you ask? lol I use the Stylebook app to organize my closet. I love how OTK boots seem to make an outfit feel luxe and they are perfect for fall and winter seasons. The boots I got are flat so they are very comfortable to wear but still feel dressy. You can wear them with a sweater dress, a skirt, over skinny jeans or here I paired it with a fit and flare dress. These have definitely become one of my favorite purchases as they are keep you warm and are great for when you don't want to wear tights with your dresses.

I challenge you to try one of the hottest trends of the season, even if you are skeptical if you can pull them off. They elevate any outfit they are paired with! Below you have so many choices to choose from in many colors, I think you will be pleasantly surprised how well they will work for you. If you have wide calves, some of the linked shoes have elastic at the top so you can move with ease. Some of the boots have side zippers to make it easier to put on. The super tall ones are reminiscent of the boots Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman. I hope you find the perfect pair!

I also want to show you how another bloggers styled their boots in a way that I love. Check out
Taylor's post.

How to Style Faux Leather Pants

I've spent the last two Sundays watching the Game of Thrones. Yes I'm the last person who has never seen an episode! So my friend is changing that by starting a weekly Sunday night viewing party.

It doesn't seem to feel like fall here yet, the trees aren't turning colors and the temperature is still 80s with high humidity. But once the cool weather hits, I like to break out my faux leather pants as they go with anything and give everything an edgier look. I just bought my first pair last year! It's a nice alternative from boring black pants. Now I feel that every gal should have a pair of faux leather pants. Mine only have faux leather on the front, but I have another pair that is just a faux leather strip on the side. You can also pair faux leather pants with an over-sized sweater or a plain white tee, they're very versatile. I paired these pants with a black tunic, taupe hat and pointy shoes. I don't normally wear all black outfits, but I thought this combo made a statement.  I absolutely love the natural glow these pics got from the golden hour sun. 

Trader Joe's New Fall Items 2017

A new Trader Joe's opened up in my city so my mom and I went opening day to check it out. Here are some new foods that have quickly become my favorites.

White After Labor Day

I think this rule is broken so much that it’s no longer a rule. I wear white year-round, especially in the winter time when I love doing all white outfits. In the fall white jeans can be paired with your favorite chunky sweater. Can we talk about this sweater? A sleeveless sweater is perfect for transitional weather.

Over the weekend I visited the Arboretum and while the leaves haven’t turned colors yet, it was still a nice visit to see the gardens and bonsai trees. The weather was 70 degrees, breezy, and colder in the shade. So, this sweater gave me the perfect amount of warmth. I really like the ivory on white combo. I wrote it with Old Navy’s Rockstar distressed jeans whose fit is amazing. I paired this look with comfy shoes since I had to do a lot of walking to explore the place.  I was also thrilled to break out my wool floppy hat. I think the plum bag and hat make the outfit look more fall.

I'm so excited to share with all of you that I will be collaborating with 9 other fashionable ladies over the next month to bring you some amazing fall fashion content!
