So Fall

I have a love / hate relationship with fall.  I love the season for its fashion but hate the season knowing that winter is right around the corner.  I’m trying not to think about the long, cold, and snowy days ahead but embracing the jeans, chunky sweaters, and boots before I have to cover up my outfits with a bulky winter coat.  So keep on reading to see today’s look, which is what I like to call my so fall look because it features all of the fall fashion essentials and the beautiful colors of fall.

This sweater was a total impulse buy.  I was walking back to my apartment from Grand Central after a weekend back home in Connecticut and I stumbled across this pop up store called Mulberry & Grand.  After a quick glimpse of the store front window, I knew I couldn’t just walk by, I had to stop in (even though my bank account said otherwise). I was completely blown away with Mulberry & Grand’s collection of jewelry, clothing, and accessories.  I’m so proud of myself for only walking away with one sweater (the sweater I am wearing in today’s post) and a pair of earrings.  No sweater could perfectly embody the season of fall than this sweater with it’s beautiful burnt orange/rust color with subtle gold sparkles and all the fringe on the bottom and sleeves.  I love the fit and the feel of this item, no wonder why lately I find myself choosing this sweater over my other sweaters hanging in my closet.  So, if you’re in the New York City area, I highly suggest checking out Mulberry & Grand.

As for jeans, I have been completely blown away with Old Navy’s selection of denim. From skinny jeans, to flared, to boot leg, to jeggings, and so on, Old Navy is offering tons of denim in all different fits and colors.  Today, I decided on the classic, high rise, medium washed distressed skinny jeans and if I do say so myself, I believe this style is super flattering.

Lately, I been having a super tough time deciding on what necklaces I want to wear, so my solution is why choose one when you can wear two?  I’m loving the layered necklace trend and these two gold, geometric long necklaces from the Etsy shop LauraB Elements go with each other perfectly.  I love the two different shades of gold against my orange sweater.  With that being said, head over to Laura’s shop for the best selection of hand crafted jewelry, featuring beautiful metal finishes.

Continuing with jewelry, I’m also loving statement earrings. For this outfit, I turned in my usual, dainty studs for a pair of gold hoop earrings from H&M.

Then for shoes, I am just wearing my brown heeled booties from Payless.  I’m looking to expand my brown bootie collection, so any suggestions let me know, but for now these shoes do the trick.

Let’s hope fall stays in the air a little bit longer before the nasty winter weather hits. Keep the discussion going in the comments below by telling me what is your favorite season when it comes to weather and fashion. Talk to you all soon!




Fall TV Series Favorite: Charmed

Happy almost Halloween! What better way to celebrate the spooky season than with a new television show.  Before, I talk about this new exciting reboot, I just want to mention that I am not a television watcher.  I have never been addicted to any show before, so when I invest my time in a show, it must be good.

Anyways, I have never been a Halloween fan, but I do like the spooky season leading up to Halloween.  I enjoy (in moderation) the gloomy days and the crisp, windy weather, so there is no better time than to spend a night in bed with the lights off and a mysterious, thrilling show.  Cue the trailer of Charmed, a new series premiering tomorrow, October 14th at 9/8c on The CW.

This show is unlike any show I have ever watched, because I am not the biggest fan of shows or movies that focus on the supernatural.  Instead, I always seem to gravitate towards relatable shows, whether that means I can connect with the plot, characters, themes, location, and so on.  So, when it comes to Charmed, I cannot relate to being a witch or having super powers, but what I can associate with is the power of sisterhood.  I cannot imagine how stressful it must have been when the three sisters, Macy, Mel, and Maggie discovered their magical powers, but sticking together as sisters they accept their powers and support one another.

I know that me and my older sister’s relationship is similar to the three girls in Charmed, because if me and my sister found out we had magical powers (if that was the case I hope I had the ability to hear people’s thoughts) we would be the loving and strong sisters we are and handle it just like Macy, Mel, and Maggie.  After all, there is no better bond than a sister’s bond because sisters will always be stronger together.

After watching the Charmed trailer and behind the scenes videos countless of times (check them all out here) I am still unsure how the storyline is going to play out. The uncertainty behind the plot and characters is what interests me and will keep me tuning in every week.  Also, cannot forget to mention how bad ass Macy, Mel, and Maggie are…like talk about girl power. I could not think of a better way to cure my Sunday scaries every week, so every Sunday get the popcorn popping, the wine flowing, relax, and get invested in Charmed.
