Fallin’ for Fashion

Well, everyone. Monday marks a new month and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Although Fall officially started last Saturday, the weather down here in South Georgia hasn’t quite changed seasons. And it probably won’t happen until maybe November. But, in my book, once October begins, so does Fall fashion.

So, the question is,

how do you sport the Fall looks you love on Pinterest without overheating in the too-warm of weather?

Of course I’m gonna say easy cardigans and light scarves with dark wash jeans and flats are a great go-to.

But let’s change it up, shall we?

When I was home in Atlanta last weekend, I was able to ditch my big sorority tshirts and running shorts for my work attire at Atlanta Activewear. I love working there because I allow myself to try new ways of wearing my clothes. And I have to keep up with the trendiest boss ever.

Friday called for some coral and bling. So I used some Pinspiration (get it?)…

from here

….and made it my own….

I’m sorry for this bluntness. But I’m obsessed with this Tobi top (similar here and here). I finally found a good button down blouse that is light weight and just easy breezy. And paired with some statement jewelry, like my Golden Stella necklace that I got from Americas Mart this past July ($10, baby!). My secret to making this inexpensive top look a tad nicer is simply pairing it with designer jeans and patent flats. Can’t forget the gold arm candy!

Jeans: AG Jeans The Legging; Flats: Steve Madden (similar here)

I love loose and flowy tops with skinnies; it’s easily my favorite look of all time. And the secret to pulling it off is definitely making sure that everything is balanced. I’d say this outfit COULD pass as a J.Crew lookalike, no?

What’s your favorite look for this transitional time between seasons?

Have a great weekend!

Fakin’ It…College Style

For anyone who has ever been in college, you know that Thursday is the beginning of the weekend. Some schools might be different, but for mine, Thursday is probably the most popular night to go out to parties, bars, or whatever your friends might be doing.

WELL since being older…wiser…and more tired from harder classes, Thursday night partying is not my thing anymore. To live through the younger ones in my sorority, I stopped by a house full of little Chi O’s just to say hey last night.

And I’m glad I did….

Due to her silliness, the “model” wished to remain anonymous.

Don’t you wish you had her hair? #totesphenom

Okay so I haven’t been able to get on the patterned-wedge bandwagon…

but I’ve made an exception for these bad boys.

And that’s how you put together an outfit under $100 without trying too hard at all. It’s the perfect transition outfit from Summer to Fall. All it takes is a sheer coral blouse from Dress Up Boutique (similar here), a pair of American Eagle skinnies, and some outrageously amazing wedges (also from Dress Up, but similar here).

Happy Fake It Friday, ladies!

I found love in a stylish place

Today, I fell in love over my delicious cup of coffee and a Coldplay song. Yep, you heard me, love. As I was doing my morning routine of social networking and catching up on my emails (I sound busy, right?), I saw it. Staring at me dead in the eye. I couldn’t look away. 

$44 of pure love.

Find it here.

Now, as I’ve told you before, I’m not one to get out of my neutral comfort zone, or “The Gray Cloud”. I pretty much avoid anything other than solids that can’t be paired with everything else in my wardrobe. But right when I saw this beauty, I thought of quite a few items in my closet that would be complemented by this clutch. Call me crazy for wanting something so colorful and outrageously patterned and absolutely perfect for my personality.

But the real reason why I was soooo drawn by the bag…

it wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg to buy. 

Do you ever wonder where to find inexpensive clothes so that you can fake it too???

Before Pinterest hit the social media front, I always depended on Forever21 for my necessities on a low budget. Of course, I’m still loving my Forever21 purchases, but a semi-new e-shopping site has been discovered! Tobi.com has been a hidden secret of mine for quite sometime. I didn’t know if I should reveal the amazing site to many people. Especially since, in the past, that seems to happen and before you know it…everyone is wearing the same thing! But what I love most about Tobi is how much inventory they always have. And everyday, you can get emails about the latest weekly sales. 

Who couldn’t ask for a better email to receive every morning?!

Not to mention, every item on Tobi’s website has a hilarious name. Like that clutch I love so much? It’s called the Your Place or Mayan Clutch. Very punny, right?!

So go sign up…NOW! And use this link….
