With the weather changing it gets me excited to switching up my wardrobe. The best thing is there are so many sales going on right now that I don't even feel bad about shopping for some new cool weather pieces.

Fall Is Just Around The Corner

Before you know it autumn will be here, and I couldn't be happier! I welcome the (slightly) cooler weather, hot cider, the smell of dried leaves, pumpkin pies, and most of all fall fashion.

Isn't this dress amazing? I'm loving the midi length, the bow detailing, and the adorable floral & bird print. This dress screams autumn to me...but it's light enough (so light that I had to wear a slip underneath) that I can start wearing it now and slowly transition it into the fall. Adding a cute black jacket over top, or even layering it over a turtleneck or black sheer top will keep you warm while looking extra cool.

What I love most about this look is that I got both the dress and shoes on sale at Lord & Taylor (along with numerous other items you'll see popping up on the blog soon!). Be sure to stop by the store or their website this weekend as they are having amazing discounts. And no, this is not a sponsored post...I'm just obsessed with the fantastic deals I always find there when I stop by to shop on my lunch break. Yes, it is dangerous having a L&T a block away from my office!

Crimping My Style

As many of you know, Paris Fashion Week is in full swing. As sad as I am that I'm not there, there is one thing from the shows made me quite happy. At the Schiaparelli Spring 2016 Couture show the models were rocking some serious crimped hair(!!!). Now I don't know about you, but I love crimped hair in moderation. I don't know that I'd be crimping my entire head anytime soon...but a streak here or there is so much fun. Today I thought I'd bust out my vintage crimper (it's the original crimper I used in elementary school) to add a little bit of Paris Fashion Week to my look. #crimpedhairdontcare

dress: ASOS | tights: H&M | boots: Nine West (currently on sale) | bracelet: gift

Speaking of Paris Fashion Week, are there any current styles and beauty trends that you are lusting from their runways? The rolled hair/eyeliner at Chanel, the amazing gowns at Valentino (especially this green one), the cubist polo shirts at Viktor & Rolf...let's discuss.

I'm curious, have any of you held on to a trend in hopes that it comes back in style? I think I basically want to know that am I not the only person that has still held on to their original crimper from the 80's? 

Spots on Dots

We finally put our Christmas tree up. Even thought it is very skinny, it is full of silly ornaments and multi-colored lights. Fun and quirky just like my husband and myself. One of the reasons I wanted to make sure it was up soon is because I had nowhere to go with the gifts I bought. Can you believe that I have about 90% of my shopping done already? At the beginning of December I'm never this far ahead of the game. Go me!!!

sweater: H&M / skirt: H&M / tights: Joe Fresh / over the knee boots: Nine West

These over the knee boots are probably my new favorite item in my wardrobe. I got them way on sale at Lord and Taylor last month. But the good news is that they are still on sale (I think even more than when I bought them)! Be sure to check it out. They are very comfortable, go with just about everything, and are so on trend for the season.

I was trying to go for a "lampshading" look here. You know, tall boots, an oversized top, and a short skirt or shorts. Not sure what I really think of the trend or if I even achieved the look or not...but thought it was worth a shot!

Oh yeah...lastly, I got bangs (again!). I was bored with my hair about two weeks ago and told my stylist to switch up my look with some bangs. I'm always getting bored and making very subtle changes. For some reason they look way more blunt in these photos than they actually are. Weird. What do you all think?
