Primary Color Accents

Sweater (less than $40!!) // Lipstick: Mattely in Love // Denim: Zara // Flats // Handbag: Chanel

I love love love mixing primary colors for accents. I am also drawn towards pairing a red lip with a yellow sweater or in this case these amazing jeweled flats! Do you have color combos that you are driven towards? I paired these bright colors with a super blank canvas of black and white. The sleeves on this sweater are so fun and add some fashion to an otherwise basic sweater.
I am also so in love with this new drug store lipstick find! It is such a bright fun shade for the upcoming holiday season.

White Cozy Tunic

Tunic // Denim // Mules // Lipcolor: Brave // 

UGH. I love this cozy white tunic sweater/sweatshirt....its a heavy knit fabric that is soooo comfy and warm. It comes in so many colors. I tucked mine in the front a bit but it is actually quite long and you can wear it with leggings!!! I also noticed that I have not shared these jeans with you before and they are a new favorite of mine. They are a great color and I love the frayed they are under $70!!!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Black Bow Back Dress // Cozy Quarter Zip // Red Sweater // Poncho // Striped Top // Beanie // Striped Top // Sock Booties // OTK Boots

I apologize for the untidy-ness of this post, my laptop charger broke so I have been using Daves computer which I am just not used to! I did however want to share some of my current favorite pieces with you! These would all make such amazing gifts for the holidays too!
Starting with this black bow back dress, black is such an easy color to wear anytime of the year but the bow on the back of this dress makes it so perfect for the holiday season. I would love it paired with the black sock bootie which is one of the seasons hottest trends!
I also love a pop of red this time of year and am OBSESSED with the sleeves on this otherwise basic sweater.
My favorite items on this post are the poncho that can be layered over your favorite basic long sleeve tee! How cozy would this outfit be for holiday travels or just hanging out with the family?

Long Fall Cardigan

Long Cardigan // Tank // Denim // Mules (Exact Dupes of the Gucci Princetown's!) //  Belt // Lipcolor: D for Danger Liner: Beet // Handbag: Chanel (Similar Handbag here)

I love fall; the pumpkin bread, the trees changing color and all the cute sweater outfits we get to wear! I love love love this cardigan...its long enough to wear with leggings too and I love wearing it lounging on the weekends too! PLUS its 30% off with code "LOVEGMBLOGGER" The real star of the show though here is this belt....I have been overwearing the heck out of this belt!! I love it so much and it goes so well with all of my fall sweaters...not to mention it looks like the $550 Gucci belt just a bit. :)  Belts are having a major comeback. I feel naked if I do not have a belt on lately!

How I decorated my home for fall

Outfit: Sweater (sold out in green similar here & here) // Tank // Bralette (favorite, on major sale!) // Denim // Belt (OBSESSED) // Mules: These are like exact dupes of these by Gucci! // Lipcolor: Beetroot

Table Decor: Pumpkins 

Bar Cart: Bar Cart // Gold Barkeepers Set // Whiskey Decanter // Marble Wine Holder // Copper Mugs // Cocktail Shaker // Halloween napkins & tumblers : Homegoods

I absolutely love decorating for the holidays. When I was renting my own apartment I would decorate slightly with things here and there but I did not want to invest in too many decorations until I knew the type of home Dave and I would end up in. Partly because I needed to know what would fit in the space and partly because I change my mind a million times a day!
In the past I would help my mom plan our her whole christmas color scheme and we would spend an afternoon shopping at Pier One, Homegoods, Target and various other places looking for all the right pieces to create the look we were going for. 
Now that Dave and I have our own home I have been getting SO excited to decorate for the holidays. I didn't go crazy for halloween/fall due to the fact that we just had the wedding on September 30th and we were busy concentrating on that. I did however pick up a few cute decorations to put around the house to make it feel more festive. I cannot even wait to decorate for christmas!! Is it crazy that I have already been looking at decor. I have decided I absolutely have to have this amazing piece for my living room, its one of my favorite christmas songs!

Red is my favorite color lipstick to wear, it is such a classic color and I love the statement it can make. My favorite colors from MAC are All Fired Up and Ruby Woo!

Fall Transition Layers

Kimono // Tank // Skirt ( I got the tall verson here)// Chanel Handbag (similar here) // Lace  up wedges // Lipstick: Rebel // Lipliner: Beet

Happy first day of fall!!!

I cannot believe I am even writing those words as it is currently 89 degrees in Chicago and feels like 93!!! People are on the beach in September!

Its the unpredicable fall weather that makes layers and fall colors so important this time of the year. I love finding neutrals and fall berry colors that I can layer and lighten up with a white camisole. This white cami is absolutely the cutest thing ever and is finally back in stock in a couple of size. It goes so fast so RUN! 
My skirt is from the tall section at ASOS which I absolutely adore. I love mini skirt, but I am also tall so I usually cannot wear them from the regular section at stores. ASOS has so many of their cute styles also offered in tall which is just music to my ears!!!
This kimono is absolutely a fall essential. It has burnout velvet flowers which is ultra luxurious and looks so great draped over a tank with jeans, a skirt or even over your favorite solid dress with some over the knee boots!!

Happy First Fall Friday!!!
