Jumpsuit (exact) - Shein* | Turtleneck (exact) - Uniqlo | Boots (similar) - Zara | Hoops - H&M*

Tis the season for pumpkin spiced everything - including fashion. I picked up this burnt orange jumpsuit a few months ago from Shein and it worked for the summer, and now it's even better for the fall. If I wear this to a pumpkin patch, will it be too much? Ha! 

I layered on a Uniqlo Heattech turtleneck under the jumpsuit for added warmth because fall in Chicago gets pretty darn cold. It was around 40º out when I shot this look, and with a jacket I was pretty warm. I went super matchy-matchy with this look and paired my go-to black boots for some height, and non-prescription tortoiseshell glasses to play off the buttons. Gold is still my metal of choice at the moment, so a new pair of thick gold hoops and a crescent necklace pulled together my accessories.

Okay, now that this post is finished I'm going back to eating my pumpkin muffins...

Like I've mentioned time and time again, fall fashion is my favorite. I love that I can finally break out my long sleeve tops, jackets and ankle boots. I wanted to play with a few different themes in this look - fun silhouettes and neutral tones. This one-arm body suit is an awesome update to the traditional long-sleeved body. It plays with cool contours and makes my broad shoulders appear a bit slimmer. These high-rise wide-leg cropped pants make my legs look longer and pulls in my waist. Instead of going with a black belt for this outfit, I decided to play into the brown tones of my leopard print ankle boots by popping on a belt with a similar tone. To keep with the "edgy" vibe of this look, I put on my leather jacket which will also keep me warm in the brisk air.
This is such a cute look for hanging out with friends, going shopping or even out on date night. As with every outfit I wear, it's super affordable!

It's the start of my favorite fashion season! You all know I live for my jeans and knits and I can finally start wearing them out again. The weather this day was so perfect at 65º that all you needed was a light sweater to keep you warm. I picked this one up from H&M for only $25! H&M is killing it this year with their affordable knitwear. They have pieces starting at only $19.99 - and they're super cute. I upped this look by pairing it with my patent boots and statement earrings. I think you'll start seeing me in more "dangly" earrings in the coming months - I'm super into them right now!

Happy fall.

I wanted to start a new series on the blog where I do an edit once a month for one of my favorite stores! I'm kicking off the series with Zara because well, who doesn't love Zara? These are pieces that are right up my alley, and what speaks to my fashion-loving soul. Here are my picks for Zara's new in:

01 linen dress
02 straw bag
03 earrings
04 off-shoulder jumpsuit
05 leather slide-on espadrilles
06 snakeskin slides
07 knotted tote bag
08 crossbody bag
09 sneakers

I was mainly drawn to accessories in the New In section, so I've got a healthy selection here! What are your favorites?

Festival season is upon us, and the fanny pack is back in full swing. A lot of the fanny packs on the market right now are pretty pricey, and can cost upwards of $1,100! That's totally a rent paycheck right there. For a fad that is likely not to last too long, I thought it would be great to try to DIY one!
All I needed to buy was a $6 bag from Forever 21 and $4 leather trim, and I was all set. Chances are you have an old belt laying around (if not, hit up Forever 21 to find one for $4!) and a tube of E6000 adhesive in a junk drawer in your kitchen. Break 'em out, and let's get to DIYing.
Materials Needed:
Small Bag
Leather Trim
E6000 Adhesive
Cut out two small strips from your leather trim. My cuts measured 1.5" x 2.25", but this will depend on how wide your belt is. Next, glue the tops and bottoms of your strips to the back of the bag spaced evenly from the center. Let this dry for 24 hours. Finally, slide your belt into the bg loops you've created, and you're ready to wear your new fanny pack!
