OOTD: LC Lauren Conrad Cupcake Sweater and Anthropologie Petaluma Skirt

I must admit. I may have squealed when I saw this cupcake sweater by LC Lauren Conrad. It also has embellishments. Even more squealing. I saw this top on Lauren Conrad’s website, but she was wearing the ice cream cone version. I went back and forth and finally decided on the cupcake sweater.

But I definitely see myself owning the ice cream sweater in the future. I mean, every girl needs a sweater with their favorite sweet treat on it. Right??

When I saw this sweater, I had the perfect skirt from Anthropologie in mind to go with it. It’s almost like they were made for each other.

I’m in love with this sweater and skirt together. Happy weekend!

OOTD: Fur & Lace

I love a good combo. And fur and lace are just the perfect combination. I’ve been on the hunt for a great new faux fur vest for a while now. Luckily, I found one by Topshop at Nordstrom.

I am already thinking of the endless possibilities of this vest. Fall is officially here!

OOTD: Pink Sheep Heiress

Today I am wearing some pieces from Pink Sheep Heiress. My friend, Katie McKenna, created Pink Sheep Heiress. I am blown away by everything she has done with the line! She is an inspiration that we can all reach our dreams if we work hard and have passion.

Here, I am wearing the Dolce Rocker Dress. I adore the fit and cut of this dress. It is a great transitional piece (from summer to fall). I paired this dress with a leather bomber jacket, tights and boots.

Next, I am wearing the Rock Top and the Stretto Skirt both from Pink Sheep Heiress. The top is perfect paired with a high waisted skirt. I am already obsessed with this skirt. High waisted? Check. A-line? Check. Leather? Check. This skirt is made out of the softest leather I have ever felt. It is seriously amazing.

I asked Katie which celebrities she would love to see wearing Pink Sheep Heiress and she told me that she would love seeing the girls on Pretty Little Liars and Rihanna rocking her line. I think her line would be perfect for those girls!

Happy Friday!

OOTD: Anthropologie Fringed Veras Cardigan

Today was truly a picture perfect day here in St. Louis. So it was perfect timing to break out a new cozy fringe cardigan.

20140907-182314-66194101.jpg

20140907-182635-66395329.jpg

Of course, I love everything about this cardigan. From the colors to the fringe, it is perfect.

20140907-182538-66338521.jpg

And what cozy cardigan would be complete without a hat?

20140907-182859-66539593.jpg

Anthropologie head to toe (well, almost). Fun fact! September is national hat month. I challenge everyone to go out and buy a new hat! Even if you’re not a hat person, give it a try.

OOTD: Friday Fall Basics

Now that summer is officially over, it is time to break out the fall basics! Even though the weather has been in the 90s (with humidity too), I can’t resist layers and denim. My outfit of the day is a leopard sweater over a chambray shirt, denim leggings and booties.

20140905-170731-61651278.jpg

I am rather picky when it comes to leopard print. I normally stick to leopard print shoes, for the pop of animal print. When I wear a leopard top or dress, the print has to be just right. I usually stick to smaller prints.

20140905-171009-61809110.jpg

Sweater: Maison Jules, $49.95 Macy’s (not available online for some reason)
Chambray shirt: $24.95 Old Navy
Jeans: Pilcro Leggings, $118 Anthropologie
Booties: Kate Spade, $350 Nordstrom
Watch: Michael Kors, $275 Nordstrom

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Get out, and go fall shopping :)

Accessory Spotlight: Anthropologie Clutch

I’m typically a crossbody bag kind of girl. But when I came across this clutch a few months ago, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

20140904-190555-68755341.jpg

And then it went on sale for $19.95 last week so I snatched it up!

20140904-190937-68977750.jpg

This is definitely a statement piece. I normally shy away from loud colors like this. But the gold stitching makes it neutral. You can spice up any outfit with this clutch!

20140904-191352-69232910.jpg

I’m very sad to report that this clutch is no longer available on Anthro’s website. But I always suggest heading into your nearby Anthropologie, because there is always a chance you may find it! Plus, they have a great selection of adorable clutches right now.

It’s almost Friday!

OOTD: Free People Heart of Gold Mini Dress

Free People strikes gold again! Literally. Get it?? (Hint: the name of the dress).

20140902-200130-72090630.jpg

It’s just one of many perfect fall dresses from Free People. The colors in this dress are what fall is all about. I chose to wear brown tights with this dress today. But honestly, you could wear black or grey tights also. J. Crew tights are my personal favorite. They hold up well.

20140902-200640-72400365.jpg

Dress $148, Free People
Tights $20, J. Crew

20140902-201935-73175066.jpg

Fall is officially here y’all.

OOTD: Free People Check Tunic

Keeping with the plaid theme of the last post…my outfit of the day comes from one of my favorite stores, Free People.

IMG_3310.JPG

I love everything about this tunic. It is absolutely perfect for the fall. I paired my tunic with leggings and black booties.

Tunic $148, Free People.

This also comes in black and white. Would it be crazy for me to buy that one too??

Have a great weekend!

Trending this Fall: Plaid

I know what you’re thinking: Fall? Plaid? Groundbreaking. But it is predicted to be big this fall. Well, bigger than usual. And let me tell you, I am so excited! Here are some pieces that I am loving:

1. Rag & Bone Jeans $396, Nordstrom

20140827-194002-70802522.jpg

There is nothing I love more than a distressed pair of jeans. But distressed jeans with plaid? Yes please.

2. ASOS Scuba Midi Skirt $67.71, Asos

20140827-194304-70984579.jpg

What I love about this skirt (besides it being plaid) is the fact that it isn’t obnoxiously short. A lot of plaid skirts are “mini” skirts. The print and the length are perfection.

3. Sam Edelman ‘Becker’ Print Slip On $79.90, Nordstrom

20140827-194627-71187148.jpg

For those of you (whoever you may be) who aren’t totally sold on plaid, you can always add little pops of it into your wardrobe. These shoes are right on trend.

4. Free People Dress $128, Nordstrom

20140827-195449-71689964.jpg

This dress is everything. I need it. Immediately.

5. Johnstons Lambswool Plaid Scarf $46.43, Asos

20140827-195832-71912417.jpg

This scarf can go with just about anything. Perfect color and print of plaid.

6. Bailey 44 ‘T-Bar’ Sleeveless Mixed Media Top $174, Nordstrom

20140827-200123-72083725.jpg

I love the combination of the plaid and leather. Perfection.

7. Free People Draped in Plaid Shirt $128, Free People

20140827-200431-72271688.jpg

How could I not talk about the classic plaid shirt? They come in many different shapes and colors. They are the epitome of the Seattle/90’s era, but are still present to this day. The best part is that everyone looks good in a plaid shirt.

How do you guys like to wear plaid?
