What I Want from Nordstrom

Recently, a brand new Nordstrom opened up in St. Louis, where I go to school. I'm so excited, and the merchandise is fantastic! Right now, I'm saving up to get these items...

This House of Harlow ring is such a cool, signature item. What a great statement piece!

These Elizabeth and James sunglasses are the perfect cat-eye for this season! I've been needing a good pair of sunglasses!

This great oversized orange clutch would be a great piece to add interest to any look.

A black bootie wedge by Jeffrey Campbell is a cool shoe that could work all seasons!

I'm definitely in need of a ladylike handbag such as this one. 

These Jeffrey Campbell snakeskin wedges are too cool. Imagine any outfit with them. Seriously, imagine it.

Burberry Prorsum Spring '12

Burberry Prorsum is always one of my faves from LFW- Christopher Bailey always finds ways to update the classic Burberry trench. This Spring, he does that with a mix of bright colors and prints and tribal-inspired details!







Layered

It's been a little gloomy today, which means one thing: Fall! When I think of Fall, I think of careful layering thats sophisticated and warm, but isn't overwhelming. 


Every fashionista needs a few key pieces for the Fall. A great pair of boots, like these over-the-knee leather ones by Michael Kors, are essential for fall and perfect for layering.



Leather leggings, or leggings with leather panels, are still hot this Fall. These H&M leggings achieve that cool, edgy look without being overwhelming.




You CAN wear white after labor day! A white blazer, like this one from Zara, is a great way to add a bit of contrast to the dark colors of fall.

I love the look of layering a cropped sweater over a button down. In this case, a bright sweater and a sheer button down (both from H&M) give this trend a new twist.

Fall Pieces I'm Craving

I really have not done as much shopping lately as I've been hoping, but here are some pieces I am wanting  needing at the moment. These pieces are all some of the perfect building blocks for a Fall Wardrobe, but with a cool, trendy twist.

This Cheap Monday sweater lives up to the price of its reputation, but would look cool layered with almost anything.


This cool pleated Club Monaco skirt is so on trend this season, and brings a ladylike femininity to any outfit.

This Asos handbag is such a cool shape and color, it would instantly add polish to anything!

These Madewell booties are Isabel Marant look-alikes, and so hot right now!

This polished J.Crew handbag is a perfect shape, and looks so great in leopard.

This felt floppy J.Crew hat is so 70's cool and perfect for this season!

I love the shape of these Elizabeth & James sunglasses


This amazing Rachel Zoe fur vest is just as incredible as the rest of her collection!

Favorite Fashion Week Street Style

The thing I love most about Fashion Week, aside from all the beautiful collections, are the beautiful people. The runway is where all the trends for the next season are forecast, but the street is where the current trends for this season are put on display.

Braving the Cold

While I wouldn't advocate wearing a skirt in the rain, I really liked the way I could make this skirt work for fall with a black cozy knit, a cool structured blazer, and a pair of booties. I also like how these photos are washed out like our balcony after the rain.

Alice & Olivia Black Blazer

A Peasant in Fall






Finally feeling the Fall weather! I was so happy to layer this maxi dress under a cozy sweater and wear them both with some cute and comfy flats. Now that the weather is finally cooler, I will definitely start experimenting more with layering, and a maxi dress is a perfect piece for that.

Say Goodbye

I'm a bit late uploading these photos, but better late than never right? These are from a little going-away party my family threw for me before I headed back to school.
