Combat Boots! I get so excited to wear boots in the fall and my new combat boots are no exception. This is my first pair of combat boots and my youngest sister actually inspired my urge to buy a pair. She had a pair last year and literally wore them almost everyday until the zipper broke apart. And when it did she was nothing short of devastated. :( So, towards the end of summer we started looking for a pair for her to replace the broken ones and as I was helping her look around for a pair, I found myself wanting my own pair!

Maxi skirts were a huge trend this summer but they can be easily transitioned to fall! Throw on a sweater and some ankle boots and your maxi skirt is ready for the fall season.
On the right is a picture of my friend Jess who always styles her maxis just right! I love her pairing of the busy printed skirt with a simple black 3/4 sleeve top.  She wore this on a summer night when we went out for drinks but she could easily wear this outfit during the fall too!

The fall season gets us excited to bring out our sweaters, scarves, jeans, and boots. But new trends have emerged for fall 2013 for everything from the IT color to the IT pattern. I have been keeping tabs on some of my favorite designers and I like to take note of what seem to be the easiest trends to conquer as a college student from a small town. Here are my favorite fall 2013 trends:


First up: sweaters. Obviously sweaters are always in style in fall and winter seasons to keep you warm, but the style for sweaters in fall 2013 are either a cozy knit sweater or academically-inspired sweaters.
Kate Spade's sweaters for fall are worn over a white button-down for an academically-inspired look.
Michael Kors included the ever popular comfy loose knit sweaters in his collection.

Emerald Green.

If you haven't heard about it yet; Fall 2013's IT color: Emerald Green

This trend can be worn as a pop of color in an outfit, accessory, nail polish, or you can go all out such as wearing an emerald green dress!

Mixed Prints.

There are so many big patterns for fall 2013, such as plaid, tweed, hounds-tooth, and argyle. So why not mix and match them!
Kate Spade mixes hounds-tooth and tweed in this blouse + jacket combo. The overall style of this outfit is 60s-inspired which is also a big trend this fall.
Alice + Olivia mix plaid and argyle in this look.


Leather is huge this fall. From jackets to skirts to bags, leather is one of the most popular and easiest trends to try. My favorite is the leather skirt because it is different from the pieces we usually see in leather, such as leather jackets.
Kate Spade leather jacket
Michael Kors leather dress
Alice + Olivia leather skirt (my favorite!)
These pieces are easy to find and fairly easy to style! Try them out, I know I will ;)

Smaller stud earrings are the fall statement earring for 2013. Stud earrings can be worn with any outfit, it's an easy trend to wear, and they can be worn many different ways. If you have more than one ear piercing, you can wear as many as you like! Personally, I have two ear piercings and this is how I am currently wearing the trend!
Check out for more ideas on how to wear the trend.
Basic Black Shirt: Gap
Sparkle Pink Shorts: Forever 21
Jewelry: Forever 21
Watch: Target
First off, I know it looks like all I do is shop when you look at my blog, but I am a normal girl looking for bargains just like anybody else! I don't usually shop this often, I think it is the back-to-school craze. When I went to Bella Jules I had a gift card, and my friend convinced me to go to the outlets yesterday. I will admit, I have a slight shopping addiction that usually won't let me turn down any kind of shopping trip, but I really do my best to try to save my money, I swear!

Forever 21 is one of those stores I cringe at when I am about to enter, only because I know I am going to spend a lot of time and money there no matter what. I love the clothes and the prices; it's like heaven! But since Forever 21 has such good prices I end up spending  more there because I use the awesome price/deal to justify buying each item. Yesterday wasn't too bad, though. I spent around $45 and I want to share what I spent it on!


Bella Jules

Today I stopped in to browse at Bella Jules. They have some really great stuff right now! I tried on a bunch of different things but these three were my favorites. The Red Tea Length Skirt was from their summer styles but I just loved it!  They are having a sale on their summer clothing so it was a great price. I love the color and the length.
The leather skirt was absolutely adorable. It is perforated and pleated and has a fun and flirty feel. This skirt is also a great transition piece from fall to winter.
Last, the leather jacket was my all time favorite from their fall styles. They just got it in the store so it isn't on their website yet. The faux leather is so soft and it was such a comfortable fit.
There was one more thing I really loved - and bought! But I am waiting to share that until the first time I wear it! ;)

These are my back to school picks for this fall. I didn't necessarily pick things that go together, but things that will be in style throughout the fall season!
PictureThis is the design I picked out. I love it!
Yesterday my family and I went to Rehoboth to shop. I bought myself one book - my family always has to check out the bookstores - but the coolest thing I got was when my sisters and I all got henna tattoos! I thought about getting a real tattoo for my birthday but I didn't know what or where I wanted it. So it's cool to get a henna and try it out!

PictureI love the pink bow! It's definitely my style :)
Today it seemed too cold for the beach this morning, so we went to shop again in the little shopping area in Lewes. I bought several things but my favorite is my new sun hat! I've wanted one for a while but never found one I really liked.

Yesterday I received a few prezzies from my amazing supervisors at Sorrelli since Wednesday was my last day :) they are absolutely amazing and I never want to take them off. I can't stop staring at my Sorrelli sparkle :))
