If you would have told us a few years ago that we’d want to wear sequins all over one day, we would have laughed hysterically. But now we’re adding sequins to the list of things we said we would never wear yet can’t get enough of. Sequins are a dazzling way to take part in the metallic trend and are totally appropriate for day when the other clothes you’re wearing are simple. For instance, if you’ve decided on a pair of sequin pants, then add a simple, white button-down blouse to contrast the glitz. Ditto goes for a sequin skirt or shorts. Sequin jackets look amazing with distressed jeans for day, but wearing black crop pants at night is a playful take on a tuxedo. Sequin dresses are best left for nights out and sequin T-shirts will become a wardrobe staple.

It’s that time of year when the air is crisper, the leaves are changing colors, and we’re mad for plaid. Few patterns evoke the autumn season like plaid and we’re determined to stay chic with these 12 perfectly patterned fashions.
A couple years ago, I wrote a love letter of sorts to my hand-me-down leather jacket. But sadly, my little leather jacket and I are breaking up. Why? Well my too-wide shoulders have pushed a wedge between us. So now I’m on a hunt for a new love because everyone needs an LLJ. Whether faux or real, a little leather jacket is an excellent layering piece when the seasons change, and can elevate the look of simple jeans and T-shirt. So during my first search for an affordable LLJ, I stuck with a price of $250 or less and found 12 leather jackets that got my style juices flowing … maybe you’ll fall in love with one too!
Earlier this week, Kate, Ami and I were waiting for our orders in front of our favorite falafel truck when we spotted a girl in the above green halter top dress. The lovely mossy green color was striking, especially paired with a brown leather belt and boots. The dress, $158 from Anthropologie, felt appropriately fall-like but still retained a sexy edge. And the color! The color was absolutely stunning. We liked it so much that I thought I’d search for other great pieces of mossy green goodness. Check out what I found!
If there’s two things I learned from Sunday night’s Emmy Awards it’s that apparently everyone loves “Modern Family” and I guess I should start watching it. And! Ladies love them some red dresses!
