I don’t know what it is about elbow patches, but I can’t get enough. There’s something inherently nostalgic about it to me. I’m diggin’ this white and brown piece from J Crew, which would look great with a pair of skinny jeans and brown boots.
Colored pants are here to stay. Put a twist on the trend by purchasing a waxed pair. The pearlessent fabric reflects a bit of light, slimming the leg and adding a touch of luxury. Recently, I picked up this pair of Hudson skinny jeans; also from the Nordstrom sale.
Next on my shopping list is a (faux) leather skater skirt. The fit-and-flare silhouette is flattering and women of all shapes and sizes. This circle skirt from Warehouse is affordable and adorable.
One of my favorite new fall purchases were these caged booties from Wink. Although they’ve been a little bit of a pain to break in, I cannot stop wearing them out on the town. Here’s a similar pair from Pollini.
Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin. I am IN LOVE with these VC Signature foldover ankle boots. I picture myself wearing them with an oversized cream sweater, dark skinny jeans, and my little burberry purse (similar here.) Sadly, I may have to wait until they go on sale.
Chunky gold jewelry- and gold necklaces in particular- were a huge hit this summer, and it looks like they’re here to stay for a while. I love how the warm gold hues compliment autumn neutrals.
My current obsession is half-finger rings. I recently picked up some inexpensive pieces from Urban Outfitters and Aldo, but these silver rings from etsy.com are totes fab.
On a recent perose around Lucky brand, I came across this scarf. I’m thinking of going back for it. The ethnic print and earthy colors are to die for!
When the temperature and humidity drop, you must switch up your skin care regime. I’ve added in Neutrogena Naturals face moisturizer and my skin is loving it! It soaks it right up, leaving a velvetty dewey texture.
Another side-effect of the changing temperature is paling skin. Keep a little glow in your appearance with Jergen’s Gradual Tanning Lotion. It moisturizes as it builds a subtle, natural “tan.” You control how dark you want to go!
Quite the impusle buy, but totally worth it; I’m addicted to my NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition One Night Stand blush palette. It comes with 4 almost-full-sized blushes (Orgasm, Deep Throat, Mistinguette, Goulue,) Laguna bronzer, and a subtle highlighting powder. Feeling the need to experiment with different colors and a highlighting powder, I felt this would be a fun (albeit expensive) purchase. I was right! I absolutely love it. Would make a great gift around the holidays for any beauty junkie!
