Little Skirt On The Prairie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This fall welcomes the return of the 90's!!! From combat boots(i.e.Dr. Marten's) to slouch socks(and yes, I still own two pair from the 90's...I have a problem letting go sometimes) to one of my fav's...the Prairie Skirt!!! Think less Laura Ingalls more Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie, all of whom work this trend quite effectively!!! I found some great floral takes and pleated numbers this weekend while cruising through Zara Georgetown! Here are some of the looks I loved! Not sure how to pull off this floor length trend??? Try keeping it simple on top, with either a fitted tee for early fall or try this oversized, boyfriend sweater(try stealing your boyfriend/hubby's), paired with a skinny belt and clog-booties(clog-blog coming soon). This is one look that most can pull off with ease, without taking it all the way back to the farm!!! Happy shopping!!!

Live Long and Skirt It!!!!!!!!!!!!

All Flared Up And Ready To Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who's all Flared Up??? I am!!! Which is why the flared jean is just right for me! It's perfect for balancing proportions. If you are a hippy girl, like myself, the flared jean is the perfect answer! It's just the right amount of small up top and bell at the bottom, which is exactly where the eye is drawn to. Top it off with a flouncy blouse or a chunky knit and finish with the perfect wedge!!! Voila, you've got your go to outfit!!! The flare is a must have for Fall!!! Do yourself a favor and get into some flared jeans!!!! My top picks: Jbrand and William Rast!!!

What's hot in fall handbags??? The mini- satchel, of course!! Cross the body or let it hang on your side, whichever look you prefer, you will be quite the lady while doing so! This dainty accessory is a must have for a dinner out or Saturday shopping! It's fun, flirty, and functional--you would be surprised at all you can fit into such a small space and your shoulder and back will thank you later, for not weighing them down. Don't get me wrong, I still love my over sized handbags, one can never go wrong with a full-sized satchel or hobo bag, but for a quick, on the go bag--try a mini satchel!!! If you're feeling like a splurge, treat yourself to a classic Chanel. If you're a fashionista on a budget, like most of us are try this , this or this...Options are unlimited!!!!
