Survival Guide To Fall Fashion

Survival Guide To Fall Fashion

I wanted to share a post on everything that you need to get you through the fall season whether it be the top trends or just some really good staple pieces! There are so many amazing pieces out right now that I needed to share! I seriously think I need every single piece on this list! While realistically, that isn’t possible because hellloooo is money no object? I wish that was the case. But really, at least consider one of these pieces! I’ve got you covered from head to toe, literally.

Outerwear:

_103283853.jpg
Sam Edelman Short Faux Fur Jacket | $200

This might be one of my favorite jackets that I’ve seen this season! I love the white and black together but it’s a different take on this style jacket.

_12094457.jpg
BLNKNYC Morning Suede Moto Jacket |$188

I got this jacket last season and I don’t regret it! It’s such an easy piece to layer with and getting it in a neutral color like this makes it easy to wear with black or brown.

_103763290.jpg
Topshop Mary Kate Trench Coat |$110
_102741856
Topshop Ava Double Breasted Jacket | $44.99

I love layering with a blazer because it totally changes an outfit! Plus, who doesn’t love pink…

_103422755
Topshop Lily Knit Back Midi Coat | $125

Everybody needs a coat like this. I’ll be getting this one!

Knits:

_103407656.jpg
Wildfox Palmetto Frayed Sweater | $168

Perfect for wearing with a pair of jeans!

_103519861.jpg
Moon River Fringed Sweater | $69

This is a different take on a sweater and I love it! This also comes in black if that’s more your style!

_103717454.jpg
Topshop Super Crop Sweater | $55

I love that this sweater is cropped because it gives you the tucked in look without the bulkiness of actually tucking in a thick knit.

_103684478.jpg
Free People Menace Solid Tunic Sweater | $128
_103841680.jpg
Free People Knit Tunic | $148

A super cozy turtleneck is a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe! They’re perfect for everyday wear but you can totally dress it up or down depending on the situation. For class I’ll wear these with leggings and my vans but you can also pair it with black jeans, a coat that I showed above this and some booties!

Tops:

_103363045.jpg
Free People That Classic Girl Bodysuit | $48

Again, turtlenecks! I swear I’m a grandma because I like them but they’re so easy. I love that this one is a bodysuit because that means you won’t have to worry about tucking it in constantly and it will stay down! Since this is fitted, it’s perfect for layering!

_103188393.jpg
1.STATE Twist Front One-Shoulder Top |$49

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this top! It comes in a few different colors but I think this white color is really nice! I also love the red version. I would pair this with again, black jeans and a pair of heels for an early fall going out outfit!

_103553267.jpg
Topshop Animal Print Pajama Shirt | $68

Okay, leopard print is so in this season and I need this top. It’s perfect for work but I think you could really have fun with this top and wear it for going out! If I was to wear it out, I’d unbutton it a little more, roll up the sleeves and layer necklaces with it!

_103401946.jpg
Free People Square Eyes Bodysuit | $58

Again, anther basic bodysuit that’s great for layering but I love the square neckline!

Bottoms:

_103705672.jpg
ASTR The Label Dionne Skirt | $98
_103537309.jpg
BLNKNYC Double Buckle Suede Skirt |$98
_102847801.jpg
Free People High Waist Skinny Jeans | $78

I swear by black denim. The ones I wear basically all the time are by Topshop but these are the most similar pair I can find! Plus, I think they’re cheaper ūüėČ

_103422009.jpg
Reformation Julia High Waist Cigarette Jeans | $128

We’ve seen these jeans for a couple of seasons now and I don’t think they’re going anywhere. A straight leg style like this makes it super easy to wear with booties, sandals, heels or a cute pair of tennis shoes. They’re comfortable enough for the day time but can transition to a night time pant as well!

Shoes:

_103644167.jpg
Kristin Cavallari Satine Bootie | $174.95

White booties have been in since last year and I don’t see them going out of style this season! I really like the zipper down the front for a different look than your standard bootie. But, I really love the wood heel with this boot! I typically see black heels on a white bootie but I love this look.

_103785890.jpg
Marc Fisher LTD Alva Bootie | $199

I think these are a pair of boots that will never go out of style. These boots are something you could honestly wear year round. During the spring and summer they’d look super cute with dresses and shorts but during the fall and winter these will look good with jeans or a black denim. I don’t think you can go wrong with this color but they do have so many other color options if these aren’t up your alley!

TS32M04PNAT_M_1.jpg
Marcel Snake Effect Ankle Boots | $180

Um, you need these. You’re welcome.

TS32M03PBLK_M_1.jpg
Mason Crocodile Effect Chelsea Boots | $160

Again, another bootie that you need! I love that it’s a new look to the chelsea boot!

TS32M09PTAN_M_1.jpg
Morty Angled Heel Boots | $130

A good everyday bootie! This color also makes it easy to wear with black or brown since both are on this boot!

Accessories:

_103440195.jpg
Brixton Audrey Wool Felt Beret | $48

Berets were in last fall/winter and they’re back! I didn’t jump on the trend last year but I will this season! Lol, last winter I was out and found a red beret so I totally grabbed it and it’s now mine. I also look like the pillsbury dough boy in it so I need to work on that.

46878633_011_a.jpg
Leonard Braided Band Hat | $98

I didn’t know I was a hat person until I tried this style! There are a thousand different versions out there but I personally really like this one! Lack of Colour also makes some really awesome ones. For me, it’s key that the brim isn’t flimsy so that it stays flat like this. I find that when the brim is flimsy, it looks weird on me.

TS24R01PRED_M_2.jpg
Panther Cross Body Bag | $48

This reminds me of the prada bags but for like 1,000th of the cost.

Vanbros Sponsorship letter.jpg
Topshop Taylor Crossbody Bag | $55

I think that this is such a fun statement bag! If you had on an all black or white outfit, this would totally pull it all together! A statement bag like this can bring together a really simple outfit and make it look like you tried harder than you did.

Well, here we are.

Well, here we are.

This post is going to be a bit different than my normal outfit posts. It’s going to be a bit of a more emotional post and definitely longer so buckle up, we’ve got a lot to cover. This past year in my life has been really, really weird for me. But it’s been weird in a good way. I guess I’ll start from the beginning of last school year and take you guys along to where I’m at now.

So, beginning of last August I moved into my first apartment and as exciting as that sounds and truly was, it wasn’t. I didn’t realize the concept of money that well and I didn’t plan. I learned things the hard way when November hit and realized I didn’t have enough money for rent (yes, I had a job and a decent paying job at that but look, ya girl loves clothes and more importantly, loves food) because I had spent it all on groceries and other unnecessary items. So the rest of the year was a catch-up year for me. I was making ends meet, and I was paying rent, paying for groceries, I was paying for it all, but that didn’t leave much room for having fun. I was still able to go out, but I was worried about the cost of cover and stupid things like that. So that caused a world of stress.

In August I went through formal recruitment again, and I didn’t get into the chapter I originally wanted, and that’s fine. I went into recruitment with a preconceived idea of what I wanted, and it turns out, that wasn’t for me. The chapter that was for me wasn’t even on campus yet. So yes. I joined the new sorority, and that nickname stuck with us. Everyone that joined would kind of get the “oh you’re in that new sorority, ” and people definitely thought we joined because we couldn’t get into a better chapter but truth be told, my chapter is the best. There, I said it. My chapter was the best chapter for me, and that’s all that matters. So anyway, I joined the new sorority called Alpha Omicron Pi, and I gave it my all. I gave it everything I had, and I met an incredible group of girls. I met the most hardworking, genuine and devoted girls than I had ever met before. And no, I didn’t pay for my friends, they came naturally. They came naturally because we all shared the same underlying beliefs and ideas of how things should be. Yes, when you put 100+ girls in a room you’re going to have groups and fights, but the fights were like fights with a sibling because at the end of the day, we ARE sisters and we ARE family, and we DO love each other.

In October I started dating the one person I fought through hell for and it was good. I finally had what I wanted, and I couldn’t really complain. October was fun and a lot of good things were happening.

In November I had the honor of attending the partnership event with Vercase and the Born This Way Foundation in Chicago. With that, I was able to speak at the event and share how the Born This Way Foundation has helped me and many other people. I also was able to share my experience with cyberbullying, how it affected me and how I rose above that. Yes, that was in middle school but what people don’t realize is that it sticks with you. The way I view people, the way I act, the way I do things, it’s all because of what happened to me in middle school. ALSO, I HAD THE BEST VEGAN RUEBEN OF MY LIFE THERE.

In December I went to England and wow, incredible. I spent three weeks there with my then boyfriend, his family, his friends and let me tell you, it was crazy. For starters, I’m not the most outgoing person in the world as most of you know. My Instagram may perceive me as a super outgoing, social person but I’m not. I’m super shy so interacting with alllll new people for a solid three weeks was crazy. THE FOOD. Oh my god the food. Guys, I still talk about those stupid mince pies, just ask my mom.

I came back from England in January, basically the shape of a basketball. Okay, not really but I definitely did gain some weight because I ate all the food and drank all the wine. You win some, you lose some and I definitely lost because I wasn’t happy with how I felt and it was because of how puffy I felt. Winter break was coming to an end, and I didn’t want to go back to school. I hadn’t wanted to go back to school since I started there in August 2015. My parents joke that I couldn’t have my car there my freshman year because I would have packed up my room and made it home before they did when they helped me move in and they’re probably right. I wouldn’t have stayed because I wasn’t happy there but I tried to be. I wasn’t in the right friend group my freshman year so that didn’t help me but this year was different. I had the friends, but it still wasn’t clicking. I still wasn’t happy, and so I cried the entire three-hour drive back. And this is where the fun begins…

I got back to school and tried to have the time of my life. But I somehow couldn’t. I couldn’t get myself to enjoy it how everybody around me was. I’d see snapchats of people out, and I was jealous because I didn’t enjoy it like they did. I knew from the start that this wasn’t my home, but it was their home. This is where they wanted to go to school, not where I wanted to go. Sure it didn’t help that I would probably rather stay in more than some people but, I didn’t like it.

In February is when I started to feel a real change. I had this idea in my head that I couldn’t shake. I couldn’t get over the idea that I didn’t think I wanted to be with my boyfriend anymore. The same guy I fought for, for over a year. The girl who saw a future with somebody woke up one day and didn’t see that anymore. But the truth is, I didn’t just wake up and see that, it was gradual and I felt it. I expected it after some of the things that happened in England, but I threw those thoughts in the back of my mind and went on with my life.

Mind you that this boyfriend of mine lived in Colorado at the time so I went to visit that week of spring break and well, that sealed the deal for me. We already had other things going on at the time, but he pushed it off because it didn’t fit his schedule like how other things didn’t fit with what he wanted. So for that week, I sat in an apartment. Not just while he was gone, but while he was there too. We literally didn’t do anything besides for one day. I’m not the type of person who needs to be constantly doing something or doing extravagant things but come on, nobody and I mean literally, NOBODY wants to just sit in an apartment for an entire week. So tell me how much that would seal the deal of what you’ve already been feeling. So I came home from that trip and decided to give him a second chance. Or well, so I told him. I got home and couldn’t do that. I kept trying, I really did. But everything at that point was annoying me. Everything was how he wanted it, and I’m a very “I’ll do what I want” type of person, so that didn’t go well with me. Ok, clearly it did for a year and a half, but I got tired of it. I just realized that I couldn’t do that again with everything I was feeling, I needed to end it.

April came, and I still hadn’t ended it but I couldn’t at that time. But then again, he couldn’t be there for something I needed after everything I did for him. I needed one thing, and he couldn’t be there. So after that, I ended it and never looked back. The beginning of April was terrible, but after that, it was freeing. I had never felt more free than I had for the last year and a half. I was free to do what I wanted when I wanted. One thing I was able to do was to go out and do whatever I wanted. He claimed he knew people that would watch me when I went out. So if I went home with my group of GIRLS, I would receive 14 calls that night wondering why I went home with somebody. Sorry, didn’t know my friends were a big deal. But okay. Not only would I wake up to 14 calls, but I’d also wake up to texts from my mom because, during a majority of the relationship, he felt the need to run to my mom everything I didn’t do something how he wanted me to. So…since I wasn’t doing things on his terms, he hacked my Instagram. Mmhmm, yup. Got on my Instagram account and then tried to say someone in my sorority did it and sent him screenshots from it. But, he couldn’t tell me who and tried to make me turn on my friends by telling me it was somebody in my group. What a pathetic move. I learned my worth real quick and didn’t put up with that so it was over just like that and I never once looked back because fuck him for that.

The summer was freeing, and it was amazing. I was living life for me, not for anybody else. I was doing what I wanted, when I wanted. I was talking to someone I definitely shouldn’t have been but that made it fun. It made it exciting. I was happy, and that’s all that mattered. I didn’t think about the boy who held me back. I went on a date with someone who encouraged me to start all of this, and here we are now, THANK YOU. I figured out my diet and what works for me. I figured out that I really do like eating healthy which is funny because, in high school, I didn’t give a shit. Well, I did. I wanted to be “skinny, ” but ate whatever I wanted, or I would really restrict my food and calories which isn’t good. So I’ve been eating a vegetarian diet for over 2 years and a vegan diet for almost 2 years (holy shit that sounds crazy! How is that even possible) and I was a total junk food vegan for the loooongest time and yeah I felt better but not my best. So this summer I finally figured out that vegetables and fruits really do make me feel good. So for once, I was finally the happiest I had ever been with my body and my mind, and that felt amazing.

So August came, school started, and I was heading back to Springfield not happy about it. For me, it had always been one of those where I’d say I was going to¬†transfer but I never did and I always gave Missouri State one more chance, but I couldn’t do it again. I hated it, again. So, I got a new job in St. Louis which required me to be home a lot (which I loved), and then I made the decision that I was tired of being unhappy. I was tired of not wanting to go back to school because I should love where I was going but I couldn’t love it like everybody else was. I couldn’t love it like the people around me so I stopped feeling sorry for myself and I left.

So this brings me to now. I learned a lot about myself and about life during this past year and a half which I don’t regret. I learned that whatever I want for myself, I have to go out and get for myself. I learned the value of money. I learned the value of people, and I learned how to cut people out of my life that don’t add value, and I learned how to be happy with me, and that’s the most important thing. I wanted to go this whole post without referencing Taylor Swift, but she said ” she lost him but found herself, and somehow that was everything, ” and that’s so true. I did lose him, I did that to myself but I also found myself and learned how to love myself and laugh at myself, and I’d take that over a boy any day.

Recently I had somebody walk away and completely shift my entire point of view of myself. I know that may make me seem weak, but honestly, I think it makes me seem vulnerable, and unfortunately, I do wear my heart on my sleeve. After my last relationship, I built myself up, and I was doing better than I ever had been. I was comfortable in my body, I was confident, and I was living life for myself. I was doing what I wanted¬†when I wanted to and how I wanted. It seemed to shift when I had to question whether this person actually liked me or not. I heard all of these great things, but I didn’t really see it. I was being told everything he knew I wanted to hear, but I didn’t see that payoff. So once again, I put everything I had into something just for the other person to not give me the same. Your worth is notdetermined by a boy who doesn’t see all the good that you are. BUT, I also have to remember how far I have come in just a few months. If you asked me last November if I thought I’d be where I was now, there’s no way in hell I would say yes. So, with that being said, girls, go out and make the future you want for YOURSELF because nobody is going to give it to you. Everything that you want in life is 100% maintainable as long as you work hard for it. Things aren’t going to come easy to you. Your dream job isn’t going to land on your lap one day, and your dream guy most certainly isn’t going to come to you without being the best version of yourself. Work at the relationships you want to built and cut off the dead ends from your life because all we have are ourselves. So don’t look back in a year, 5 years or 10 years and wish you would have been happier back then, go make that happen. But also remember that you are solid gold, and nobody can take that away from you, no matter how “cool” the guy is or seems to be because let’s be honest, he’s probably an asshole anyway. Remember this, fuck boys are friends with fuck boys. So chances are if he’s friends with them, he is one, or they will encourage him to act like one. He doesn’t like you if he just wants you for your body and you don’t owe him that. Just have fun in life and laugh your way through it because if you can’t laugh at yourself, nobody can.

Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars

54CA55EC-EC4D-457E-B28C-B9B89DFD2B23-1.JPG

Guys…I’ve jumped on the star print bandwagon and I don’t plan on getting off anytime soon. I really don’t know what it is about stars but everybody is wearing them this season and I’m all for it. With me being all for it, I saw a sheer print star shirt and I had to get it. Sheer shirts are something that’s also realllly in this season coming in different variations.

The top that I’m wearing is from Zara and what I really love about it is that it wasn’t over $80 like some brands are charging. Sorry but I’m not spending $80 on some mesh fabric with stars on it, I’ll stick to my under $20 version.

For my pants, I kept it really simple with these black paper bag pants from ASOS! This shirt would also look super cute with black jeans if you wanted to be more casual!

Springing Into Fall

Springing Into Fall

IMG_2261With Fall quickly approaching, I’m so ready to be wearing jeans and cozy sweaters. But, for the time being I’m making due with just wearing jeans. This outfit includes the perfect transition pieces to bring you into the cooler months. Or, maybe you live somewhere where you could actually wear this in the fall. This shirt is from Nordstrom Rack .¬†This is definitely a shirt that I will be keeping because it’s so easy to wear it for different occasions. I could dress it down with jean shorts, make it a casual dressy look like I’m wearing or I could wear black jeans, black heels and dress it up even more. I think tops like these are really nice to have in your closet because you can get so much use out of them. Especially when this one wasn’t that expensive!

These Frame jeans are PERFECT for the fall¬†(I’ll be linking my other favorite jeans at the end of this post)! Plus, they’re so comfortable. I really like the waist and the hem because it’s distressed and something different from your typical jean. The waist is something I’m starting to see more and more but the hem is something people have already been doing. I feel like it takes a pair of jeans and elevates them almost. I easily could have dressed this outfit up with a pair of black heels and I would have been ready to go out.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

Again, obsessing over these jeans. They’re the perfect “girlfriend/boyfriend” style. Mules are also one of the top shoe styles in for summer and fall! These are perfect with a small heel because they add height! I’m all for adding height in comfortable ways because I love looking taller than I actually am.

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

These shoes are actually from TJ Maxx!! They were suupper affordable, under $20 for sure. But, if you can’t find them there then you can really find them anywhere! Here is a similar pair for under $20!

Bejewelled Drawstring Sweatshirt

Sweatshirts are a huge part of my fall and winter wardrobe but I don’t have any “dressy” sweatshirts! To me, I could wear this to dinner and feel somewhat put together but I could also wear it with leggings and be casual! I think this is really cute and a different take on a sweatshirt.

Capture

V-Neck Sweater

A good sweater is a must have for the fall and winter. I really like this oatmeal color with the black along the sleeves and the hem. I think that the almost bell sleeves make this sweater different from others. The color is also something that matches with almost anything!

Capture.PNG

Printed Tulle T-Shirt

I saw a girl wearing a similar shirt with a black bralette underneath with black trousers and black shoes and that’s when I knew I needed to include this. I think sheer tops get a rep for being anything but put together but her outfit was so cute and she didn’t look bad. I think by wearing pants, it still looked like she was covered up and she wasn’t showing as much skin as it looks like one would in this top!

Capture.PNG

Tunic With Contrasting Stripes And Fringe

How cute is this?! With this being a tunic and me being short, I could probably get away with wearing this as a dress but I LOVE the different colored striped together. I think the shape is really nice and would look good and so many different body types. Also, the fringe is really cute in my opinion!

Capture.PNG

Tasselled T-Shirt

This picture is a little misleading for how cute this shirt is. Seriously, go look at it on the website and be prepared to buy it! I love how the tassels are the same color as the shirt so it doesn’t take away from it being a nice white top. But they add texture which I really like! I can already see myself wearing this our so I’m definitely getting this shirt.

Capture.PNG

Ruffled V-Neck Top

Ruffles are the new craze this summer and it appears they’re carrying into fall. I tend to gravitate towards stripes so I really like them on this top! I like that it’s appears to be a button down but it doesn’t have a collar and it has a v-neck. I really like this top and I think it would be easy to carry you into various seaons!

Capture.PNG

PomPom Top

Okay. This shirt is amazing. I love the pom pom detail and the colors! A white top is essential for me and if you’ve been reading my other posts, I keep wearing the same H&M top because it’s super easy to match to anything! I could see myself wearing this with jeans and tennis shoes/sandals to dress it down but I also see me wearing this out! Also, this is something I could wear to work so that’s really nice!

Bottoms:

Trousers With Front Knot

Pants with the slit front and knot detail are huge this season! I really like these because they look so comfortable and can be worn to work or out with friends. With the material being what it is, you could easily just wear a white t shirt and still look dressed up.

Capture

Floral Bermudas

Shorts are’t your typical Autumn item but in Missouri, it could be warm in October or it could be cold. With that being said, it’s nice to have a good pair of shorts like this that you can pair with a sweater or a long sleeve shirt to incorporate it into your Fall wardrobe. These shorts are also nice because you can get wear out of them in the Spring and Summer.

Capture.PNG

Corset Mini Skirt

The corset detail has been done on tops and it’s not my favorite. I think it’s something that has to be done WELL and not many people are doing that. But for this skirt, it would be really hard to mess this up! Just like a lot of other items in this post, this is super easy to dress up or down depending on the event. I’d definitely pick up this piece.

Capture.PNG

Mid Rise Jeans

Zara always does a good embroidered denim. I like the grey color because they’re not too light but they’re not too dark making them a washed out black. Also, with the orange, red and green tones, these are perfect for fall! I sense a bit of a 70’s vibe with the colors and the pattern but none the less, I love them for that reason. I think we are going to see more 70’s style coming into play this season and this is only the beginning!

Capture.PNG

Damaged Skinny Jeans

I live in black skinny jeans. They’re my favorite jeans to wear casually and to wear on a night out. I particularly like these because of the rips and the raw hem! The raw hem is something we’ve seen for a few seasons now but it’s definitely here to stay! You can’t go wrong with a pair of black skinny jeans.

Dresses:

Capture.PNG

Mini Dress With Frills

Black dresses ALWAYS get wear out of them. This one is nice because it’s suuuper comfortable since it’s a loose fitting dress. This has the ability to be dressed up or down because of the shape and simplicity. The ruffles give this dress a girly take but they aren’t too over powering like a lot of the ruffles on clothes these days.

I bought a jacket like this while in England over Christmas break and it’s quickly become one of my favorite jackets! It’s super warm AND it looks cute while being functional. It’s what all the girls were wearing in England which can only mean that it will be coming here this fall/winter. I recommend getting this while it’s still in stock. For $130, it’s a bit pricey for an “on trend” piece BUT I wore mine every day during the winter and I still love it.

Leather City Bag With Knot Detail

I used to not like black accessories whether it be black shoes or black bags but since I’ve started wearing more black, then I’ve also started wearing more black accessories. This bag is functional with the handle and the long strap gives you the ability to wear it as a crossbody. I like the knot details on the shorter handle to give it some detail while still being a super simple bag.

I LOOVE this color green on people which is why I don’t know why more people don’t wear it. So, if you don’t have a green dress, GO GET ONE! I promise you that you need it. I first wore green to my junior prom and got so many compliments on it. I waited until this past year to wear a green dress again and realized why I liked it so much. Green isn’t your typical go to dress color but honestly? It may have just become mine. This dress is from Zara for SO cheap. It’s on sale right now for $12.99!!!!!! At the end of this post, I’ll be linking some of my other favorite green dresses.

The cut out detail on this dress is nice because you can really tie it anyway. I tied in in a bow this day where as you could totally just tie it in a knot and leave the rest hanging down. Also, I liked the little bit of skin that was showing. While the color was something different, so was the side cut out with the one shoulder aspect. You can really tie it as tight or as loose as you want which is nice because it’s all based on personal preference and gives you room to experiment with it.

While the dress is inexpensive, it’s decent quality! I was worried that when I got it, the fabric would be thin whereas it’s actually pretty thick fabric and holds you in. I felt comfortable in the dress regardless of it being super tight and I do think a lot of that has to do with the fabric being so thick. It’s nice because I’m not worried about it being see through at all!

I just paired this dress with nude heels that I got from target in April but this style of shoe is super easy to find! Here’s a pair by Steve Madden that’s really similar!¬†Also, here’s another pair that has a shorter heel, from Unique Vintage!
