Happy Friday + Link love


-I'm not even ashamed by my unabashed love for Forever 21. So many cheap thrills, so little time! And right now they're offering 20% off during their Friends and Family sale (as if the prices aren't already amazing) with code F21FRIEND. This incredible shearling jacket is at the top of my wish list along with this cozy striped sweater and these cutout heels.

-This might be the funniest video I've watched in a really. long. time. Any description I give won't do it justice. You just have to see it.

-I recently completed my ripped jegging trifecta with a pair of gray skinnies. They might even be my favorite pair yet!

-Halloween is a little bit different this year now that we have a little one. And while our Sofia will be rocking her strawberry costume like a champ, I'm kind of regretting not dressing her in one of these hilariously inappropriate get-ups.

-It's not that I don't want a plaid coat, it's just that I wasn't necessarily considering one until I saw this red and black beauty. The shape is gorgeous (I think the cowl neck totally makes it) and the faux leather piping and sash make it less lumberjack and more chic. And at $55, it's nearly impossible to pass up.

Happy Halloween and have a great weekend!

Top five fall trends

I've had a few people ask about some of my fall must-haves recently, so today I figured I'd round up the top five trends I can't get enough of right now -- including some inspiration and favorite items that go along with them. The best part? They're all basic enough that they work for everyone and can easily be adapted based on your personal style.


1. Distressed everything -- I've been going on and on and on about holes in my jeans for months now. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've purchased more denim over the past few weeks than I have in previous years combined and I think almost all of it is distressed. I've already mentioned that these are my favorite pair of classic blue distressed skinnies, but am loving everything from seriously destroyed boyfriend jeans to super skinny pairs with the slightest slits across the knee.


2. Gray -- If I'm not buying black, I'm buying gray -- probably because it's just a lighter version of my color of choice -- and wearing it head to toe is one of my favorite looks for fall. And while any shade of gray is fine (I think there might be 50 of them), I'm partial to the super light versions (like this cocoon coat). Such a great neutral!


3. Black skinnies -- The blackest of black skinny pants/jeans are must-haves for fall. You can wear them with anything from sky high heels to sneaks on the weekend, and they'll still look chic. Bonus points if they have a rip in the knee (see #1). I've heard good things about these.


4. Leather jackets -- My love for leather and faux leather truly knows no bounds. Which, if you read this blog regularly, you already know. So I'm not making any kind of groundbreaking statement when I say that a great leather jacket is a necessity. I just picked up this one for a steal and love the moto look!


5. Fedoras -- Hats, specifically fedoras, have been gaining serious momentum over the past few seasons and are back in a big way for this fall and winter. Not only are they practical, but they're super cute. Which is obvi the more important of the two. You can't go wrong with any color, but I love brown and black. Check out how I styled them here and here.

What are the trends topping your list this fall?

Sweater: Zara (super cozy option in the same color here) || Leggings: Windsor (similar here) || Purse: Forever 21 || Heels: Lulu's (similar style here, swoon-worthy version here) || Sunglasses: Forever 21 (obsessed with this pair) || Bracelet:E. Kammeyer

Just a quick post today since I'm late getting these up!

I'm trying to pace myself when it comes to how often I wear my faux leather leggings. I already feel like they're getting a ton of mileage and, umm, it's not even cold out yet. These are an old favorite and, even though they're not black (ugh) are surprisingly versatile! I'm even considering picking up a moto version.

Happy hump day, dolls!
