5 FALL TRENDS THAT YOU NEED NOW

FUR VEST : F21 - SAME HERE - $38   //   PLAID SHIRT: H&M - SAME HERE - $18   //   NAVY BOOT: SOLE SOCIETY - SAME HERE - $90   //   
OXBLOOD LIPSTICK: MAC - SAME HERE - $16   //   GREY LEATHER JACKET: F21 - SAME HERE - $43

Every Wednesday I do a post on what i'm currently craving and this week I wanted to do a roundup of my favorite fall trends. Everyone has their own picks, and these are mine - best part? You may have these in  your closet already and if you don't - well, here are some options under $100. 

A Faux Fur Vest
Faux is the way to go in my book and there is a lot of flexibility here in terms of style and color. You can go hooded, brown, or long - but either way: fur is in for fall. 
A Plaid Shirt
This one is my favorite because everyone had one of these in there closets. I love the untraditional colors here like dark green or blue plaid.
Oxblood Makeup
This lipstick color is all over the runway (I even wore it last night at the W Thinks Pink: Catwalk Event) and is so beautiful on every shade. Try it out this season, warning: you might get addicted!
A Short Navy Boot 
Stepping away from traditional black and brown boots, dark colors are in this season. Navy is actually my favorite Fall color and I have more in this color then I am willing to admit. Whoops.
Leather
Does this really need an explanation? Pick your color - Wine, Grey, Taupe, Blush - or classic black. Either way you need to get leather (Faux is my favorite!)

It's pretty much a universal rule to break fashion rules. White after Labor day? Absolutely. I picked up this puffer vest when I was in SF a few weeks ago and couldn't wait for the temperature to drop in Atlanta to pull it out. If it wasn't obviously already, Navy is one of my favorite fall trends, I just can't get enough!

LINKS I LOVE


A few months ago, I started a series (inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Cupcakes & Cashmere) where every Sunday I would roundup what I found on the internet this week. It would be a hodgepodge of news articles, recipes, Pinterest finds, EliteDaily pieces - really anything that caught my eye and was worth sharing. So, here is this week's Links I Love:

1. These Thai Coconut Chicken Skewers are absolutely delightful and they make my mouth water just looking at it. Yum!
2. A modern take on the french braid includes a teased crown. This one win's the crown!
3. The IT color for this season is Oxblood, but you already knew that. Here is my favorite shade of lipstick.
4. This little home office is the perfect source of inspiration. I love the rose gold on the flower vase.
5. The focal point of this small bathroom is certainly the gorgeous mirror. Where can I get my hands on that?
6. When blogging burns you out, this is a great read from the NYT.
7. Embossing always looks beautiful on stationary, and I wanted to figure out how to do it so I discovered this DIY embossing tutorial.
8. Who's more shallow on Tinder - men or woman? Are you actually surprised at the result? These folks went undercover in a social experiment that's worth watching. 
9. Have you ever been to the restaurant Frontera? Have you ever had their corn? Here is a home version of Mexican Street Corn

W ThinksPink: Cure On The Catwalk


I'm so excited to announce that I will be participating in the annual Pink Heals Foundation event, Cure On The Catwalk! The event pairs up Atlanta Fashion Bloggers with Cancer Survivors and we walk the catwalk together for a night of style, runway, and fundraising. I met up with my survivor earlier this week and to say she is an inspiration, would be an understatement. I can't wait to share more about her story with you after the event! 
It seems that as we get older the circle of those who are affected by cancer gets closer and closer to home. Everyone knows someone, but that friend of a friend's mom soon becomes your neighbor, and then your best friend's dad, and soon your grandparent. I lost my grandmother to Lymphoma in January of this year so a cause like this touches my heart in so many ways. This event is a celebration, so bring a friend, a survivor, or someone who knows someone affected. It will be a great event. 
The style will come from Shops Around Lenox & hair and makeup by Van Michael Salon. 100% of the proceeds will go to Pink Heals Foundation. Ticket prices are only $20 and includes light bites by Cook Hall Atlanta. To buy your tickets (they sold out quickly last year) head here.

WRAP BLOUSE: White Surplice Top






WHITE BLOUSE: F21 - SIMILAR HERE - $38   //   BOYFRIEND JEANS: AEO - SAME HERE - $25   //   GREEN CLUTCH: eBAY - SAME HERE - $5   //   
LEOPARD HEELS: DSW - SAME HERE - $70

Well, Fall has officially taken off in Atlanta. It's cold - I mean, a southern's igloo (i.e. 59 degrees). On the plus side, it's perfect running weather! Early morning and late night runs are the best and I can't wait to get back at it. Before I took the summer off to dance (cardio is cardio), I was running close to 10 miles a week which may not seem like a lot, but for someone who got a B in P.E. - i'll admit it. It was a huge accomplishment. I'm hoping that 2015 is the year I do my first 5k, no better time then now to start training!

Are you a runner or do you scurry from the idea? What helps?! Send me your suggestions!

ORANGE PEPLUM LACE TOP







TOP: ORANGE PEPLUM: BELK - SIMILAR HERE - $16   //   SKIRT: NAVY PENCIL - F21 - SIMILAR HERE - $69   //   HEELS: LC BY LAUREN CONRAD - SIMILAR HERE - $35   //   AG: c/o GREGORY SYLVIA - SAME HERE - $215   //   EARRINGS - KORE LUXE

It's amazing how quickly the weekend goes by, and Monday resurfaces. We spent the weekend house hunting and may or may not have found a good one. It's crazy how fast time can fly by, and I can't believe everything in my life will be changing so soon. Between the wedding and the new house, it's stressful! A year from now waking up next to my husband every morning and making tea in our kitchen.
Growing up can be a hassle, wish me luck.

BLACK AND WHITE BAROQUE SURPLICE DRESS







DRESS: F21 - SAME HERE - $25   //   BAG: KATE SPADE - SIMILAR HERE - $221   //   MAROON PEEP TOE HEELS - SIMILAR HERE - $99   //   
LIPSTICK: NYX IN BRUISED - SAME HERE - $6  //   EARRINGS: KENDRA SCOTT - SAME HERE - $50


How gorgeous is this black & white baroque dress? I wore this outfit to the VOW fashion show and SUJA Juice Happy Hour events earlier this week. The Vow event was put on by the team at America's Mart in Atlanta and as a bride-to-be myself, I was thrilled to have front row seat to the bridal fashion genius! Quick recap: floral lace is very in. SUJA is an organic, non-GMO, cold-pressured juice from a company in the beautiful SoCal. I was fortunate enough to try out their juices for myself last week and seriously I feel like I never tasted fresh until that day. The flavors blended together seamlessly and the variety is endless. When their team invited myself and a few other lady bloggers to their happy hour I knew I had to meet the founder during their rooftop soiree. Lucky for us, the weather in Atlanta is still beautiful and i'm enjoying the summer fashion trends before Fall inevitably makes us trade the cami for the cardigan.
