This shopping guide happens to be very personal for me, because earlier today, I, sniff, destroyed my favorite scarf by accidentally throwing it in with my regular wash. It now lies a shrunken, sponge-y mess at the bottom of my trash can. So yes, now I need a new scarf. Click through to see some sweet options for both you and me.
I’ve never been a huge fan of periwinkle, but lately it’s been growing on me. I like the idea of pairing the color with neutrals or navy to weigh the color down. Above, 10 periwinkle options to brighten up your wardrobe.

When the seasons change, I like to be prepared. I tend to start stocking up on potential fall nail polish shades by, say, mid-August. Of course, I already know which colors I’ll be wearing because they’re the same ones I go for every year — rich, autumnal reds, neutral nudes and taupes and muted shades of true blues and greens. Now that it’s October, it’s safe to say that normal people who are not hoarders like myself can now assuredly begin to make their selections for the latter seasons. Here are my top 10 picks for fall and winter nail polish. Click to buy after the jump! Keep reading »
With the winter months headed our way, I’m seriously hoarding any sweater I can get my hands on. I’m really into something that I can wear now on its own and continue to wear as a layer once the colder weather rolls in. This Dolly Cat Jumper from ASOS is crucial to my fall/winter transitional wardrobe. The graphic is cute without being cheesy, and the use of negative space to form the silhouettes is actually quite artistic. I’m a chiaroscuro kind of girl, so naturally I would choose the sweater in black, but for anyone who (unlike me) isn’t afraid to integrate some brighter colors into their outfits, it looks brilliant in shocking red.
Wearing shorts in the middle of the fall or winter can be a little tricky for some. But I’m here to tell you that it’s really as easy as wearing a skirt or dress during the colder months.

Also, wear something that skims the body on top to avoid any boxiness. It can be a fitted top, sweater, or even a jacket that highlights the waist. In addition, if you’re going for a light pair of shorts, then balance out the color while making it season appropriate with a darker neutral. But in this instance, if you choose black then don’t also add in gray and brown or vice versa. See these rules in practice with the two shorts for cold weather looks I put together. Keep reading »
When I was a child, there were three things that defined my style — big earrings, hats, and vests. Big earrings and hats are style preferences that not everyone shares, but I’m going to argue that everyone needs a vest or two. For one, they’re excellent for layering this time of year, but won’t be too hot when the temperature warms during the day. And vests show that you’re more adventurous than simply choosing a jacket or cardigan as a cover-up. Here are nine of our favorite knit, tunic-length, drape-y, and menswear-inspired vests.
