Who knew oversized poufs could be so stylish? From a bright red romper that looks suspiciously like my mom’s gym uniform from the 70’s to an army green blouse with a gorgeous neckline, the excessive fabric feels just right.

One of my favorite pieces is a slinky romper in a lovely olive green:

From the waist up, I get major Dowager Countess vibes (in a totally good way!). From the waist down, it’s reminiscent of the poofy bloomers of previous looks, but with a much classier take. The waist is cinched with a gorgeous flower belt matching the rest of the outfit. So perfect!

I, for one, thought that cut-outs were going back out of style. However, I’ve just been proven very wrong:

Pretty! The placement of the cutouts and the overall shape of the dress in these outfits provides he perfect amount of skin in proportion to fabric that screams sexy, but not overtly so.

I also had no idea that cutouts in a jacket would be such a good idea. They just make the blazer look so much more fitted and feminine.

The cutouts in this dress help make it not look like a billowy witch costume. Without the cutouts, I would immediately dismiss this dress as overly frumpy and unfitted. With the cutouts, it gives just the right amount of style to make it high fashion and fabulous.

You usually don’t think of leather and cutouts, but this look proves that cut outs look lovely with any fabric.

Finally, I want to mention the makeup all of the models had on:

I have to say, this super bold eyeliner somewhere between your eye and eyebrow is so on point. I absolutely want to try out this look the next time I go out. Too fabulous!

6 Essential Items for Fall

Everyone needs some new clothes for fall. Here are 6 essential items that you can’t forget:

 

A pair of cute and comfy sneakers

I personally recommend white Converse. The beauty of these shoes is that they go with everything – skirts, jeans, dresses, leggings. Go get some pronto!

A nice flannel

What’s not to love about flannel? It screams fall. Wear it over a cute tee or around your waist as a nice accessory. I love my red and black flannel from Forever 21. It’s not quite as fitted, which adds a nice cozy factor.

A striped t-shirt

Striped t-shirts are the best. They go great under a chunky sweater (or your favorite flannel!) and paired with a necklace or scarf.

A cozy sweatshirt

What better way to spend a day sipping pumpkin spice latte in an oversized, snuggly sweatshirt? Go classy with a simple monochrome to artsy with some colorful flowers to funky with a quirky pattern. Mix it up!

A cute hat

With the immense selection out there, everyone can find their perfect fall hat. I’m partial to the more 1920s-esque cloche hats, but even a beanie can instantly add a whole new layer to your outfit.

A simple and patterned scarf

A person can never have too many scarves. Scarves are the perfect accessory to spice up a plain t-shirt or dress, or to tie around your waist instead of an ordinary belt. I recommend Charming Charlie for a great selection and great prices!

“Roots” by Imagine Dragons

The music with the vocals is phenomenal. Imagine Dragons is one of those bands that just cannot do wrong (along with One Direction). Will make you want to get down.

 

“Iscariot” by WALK THE MOON

This song is incredibly haunting and beautiful. Will make you cry, but totally worth it.
