Colorful Statement Necklaces

 One thing I love to do is make a bold statement with my clothing whether it's jewelry, a bright pair of pants, or a pair of trendy sunglasses. I find that it is really easy to do this with statement necklaces since they can bring your whole outfit to the next level.Whether you're into colorful, neutral, or edgy necklaces these choices are great statement pieces to pick up for the holidays.

Shoes, Shoes, & more Shoes



Forget diamonds...I believe SHOES are truly a girl's best friend. As I was going through my closet last weekend I realized I have a borderline obsession with shoes...especially heels. There's just something so exhilarating about opening that new box and wearing your brand new pair of shoes out that just makes you feel amazing. Here are some of my current favorites from some of the best, affordable designers (like Steve Madden and Zara).

One thing I love more than finding that perfect dress or amazing pair of booties is a SALE! Nothing makes me more happy (and less guilty lol) than when I find a quality item at a price that shocks me. I'm finding more and more often that there are so many fashion items out there that are only a fraction of the price of their rival designer pieces. I decided to show you guys some amazing deals on current fall trends out there and how they compare to the designer ones.

Celebrity Look For Less: Lauren Conrad (Under $120)




1ST OUTFIT

LC Look for Less Under 100 number 2



OUTFIT TOTAL: $119



2ND OUTFIT Lauren Conard-Look For Less Under 120

 OUTFIT TOTAL- $102.50



You have to admit, the fashion world is definitely influenced by WHAT and WHO celebrities are wearing. I decided to add a new series to my blog where I pick a fashion influencing celeb and recreate their everyday outfits for under $120; I've always liked a challenge.


For this particular post I chose the lovely Lauren Conrad who I have been a fan of since her Laguna Beach days (yes I own the DVD's lol). If you all have any special requests on specific celebs you would like me to create a post on then just let me know in the comments.

Chic Fall Outfits


Chic Fall Outfits (#1)
SWEATER-She Inside, PANTS-Romwe, BOOTIES-Forever 21, CROSS BRACELET-Asos

I find it helpful when I create collages of outfits for the week so I can have a visual of what I will most likely wear. Although my best outfits usually come from pure spontaneity, the collages I create are life savers on those days when I wake up late and have a limited time to get dressed.

This first one is my staple "go to" outfit for the fall season. Loose knit sweaters paired with high wedge booties and trendy printed pants are so chic and gives off an effortless, modern look.


Chic Outfits For Fall (#1)
 CARDIGAN-Bank Fashion, FLORAL BUSTIER-Forever New, FAUX LEATHER PANTS-Debenhams

Fall is all about transitioning your favorite summer pieces into the new season. Floral prints and bustiers can be toned down by adding tough faux leather pants and a mustard cardigan.

  

Chic Fall Fashion Ideas
SWEATER-Romwe, PINK SKINNIES-We Like Fashion, FLATS-Witchery, SCARF-Burberry

On the days I feel like being more casual I still try to keep the outfit interesting by wearing bright colors, just like in the summer time. Bright clothing in the fall/winter is really unexpected/fun and allows you to continue to wear some of your summer clothing. 


Chic Outfit Ideas
SWEATER-Romwe, PEA COAT-Net-a-Porter, NECKLACE-Debenhams, BELT-Asos, EARRINGS-Kohl's

Layering is one of my favorite aspects of the fall season and I especially love layering bright sweaters over a basic white button down and topping it off with a structured pea coat. It gives the perfect blend of preppy, classy, and chic in one complete outfit.

DIY Project: Studded Denim Shirt (in 4 easy steps)

I came across this Topshop studded denim shirt (that is currently sold out) and got inspired to make my own. I bought my studs from StudsandSpikes.com for a pack of 100 gold studs for only $4.80. I then went to the thrift store and was able to find this light wash denim shirt for only $3.

 A few pointers I would give for this DIY studding project is to definitely use a pair of scissors or a knife instead of your fingers to make sure you secure the studs the right way. Also do NOT do this on the same day you polish your nails or get a manicure because it will ruin them.

Here are the 4 super easy steps pic by pic:

 And here is the finished product.
