Cold Fronts

Although it's been unusually warm the past few days on the East coast, I know that the cold weather is going to be making it's arrival any day now.  Although I'm not the biggest fan of cold weather, I am looking forward to adding even more layers to my looks!

Outerwear is a cold weather must.  Here are a few of my favorite outerwear pieces from BP!

Gloves, hats and scarves are just as much of an accessory as earrings, necklaces and bracelets, so I'm starting to shop for all of these winter accessories now!

Boots are another fall, winter and maybe even year long necessity.  I have been expanding my horizons this fall and trying some new styles, like studded combat boots!  Riding boots are my favorites!

I Want It All

Happy Monday!  I've been really busy recently with all of my school work.  Study breaks are often necessary and my study breaks have included some online shopping!  Looking at all of BP's new online merchandise has made me want to go on a serious shopping spree.  There is so much that I want and I am falling in love with everything!  

122863896054265841_JYTvAtZ0_c
The new accessory arrivals are so unique and cute!  These are a few of my favorites…

This scarf looks so comfy and I love the leopard and lace combination!

_7243729
This watch would be the perfect piece of arm candy.  The rose gold is my favorite!

_7371905 _7371843 _7371904

This lulu crossbody bag in pink is my favorite, but the pearlized ivory bag is just as cute!

_7261293 _7261310

This headband and this tiara are my favorites!  The tiara could top off a princess halloween costume or you could wear it anytime that you are looking for your prince...

_7404017 _7390235

 

I've added each of these next items to my shopping cart in at least one color...

This bow blouse is so girly and adorable, it perfectly fits the "Luxe Be a Lady" trend.

_7291332
I love how feminine and effortless this black and white lace top is!

_7312770

If you have a more formal event coming up, this striped dress would be perfect!

_7086422
 I want to cuddle up in this airy oversized sweater and sip on hot chocolate...

_7304584 _7296760

These tie dye jeans are so unique!  I would dress them up with pumps and a sequin tank, blazer and accessories.

_7354195
 I want these classic collegiate TOMS for going to class, these boots for going to dinner and these spiked toe pumps for a night out!

_7276169 _7271181 _7374271


What is on your BP wish list?

Iconic Anna

If you haven't heard of Anna Dello Russo, now is the perfect time to meet her!  She is the current Editor at Large and Creative Consultant for Vogue Japan.  She makes a statement whether she is running to the grocery store or running a fashion empire.  Anna Dello Russo is an inspiration and I look up to her for her risky fashion choices and bold, unique looks.

Tight Knit

Along with the colder temperatures comes the return of one of my favorite accessories, tights!  Tights have been taken to new levels in the past few seasons with unique and fun styles, colors and prints.  

Girl,flowers,fashion,leggings,hayky,legs-3c5d440123cb4736508a47167de4ad6a_h
 Not only do tights keep you warm in chilly weather, but they can also easily pull a look together or add the perfect finishing touch to an outfit.  My favorite pairs of tights are the most unique ones!  I love out of the box ideas for tights like the letters of the alphabet, ombre, hearts and so much more!  

Beach,legs,stocking,fashion,girls,shoes-1f5c8987aa959ca7b7cdc9579924096d_h
These are a few of my favorite styles of tights...

Colored tights always brighten my day and are the perfect way to get your pop-of-color in.

Blue,colour,colourful,fashion,legs,orange-026857409d1cd141a28631c69932629c_h
Patterned, colorful tights are my go-to for simple neutral colored outfits.  Just be prepared to turn some heads!

 Lace tights have always been a favorite of mine.  I love going for a completely feminine, girly look with lace tights and a simple dress.

Classic black tights are a must-have.  I also think that tights in simple patterns, like polka-dots, should also be wardrobe necessities.

 I have already begun to accessorize my daily outfits with tights.  My favorite pair of tights has a stripe of silver glitter on the back.  Which styles of tights are you most excited about wearing this fall and winter?

Check out all of the adorable tights available in BP!

Have a great week!

Shine On

Since tiaras are only acceptable on birthdays and halloween, it's important to find ways to stand out from the crowd any day of the week.  The possibilities are endless, you could accessorize with a multi-colored mani, eye-catching earrings  or glitter-coated pumps.  How you choose to stand out is completely up to you.

These are a few of my current favorite stand-out items from BP...

This Lily White tank can be dressed up or down and it will definitely make a statement!  These reversible jeans are also so unique!  Will you try them out?

_7283603 _7304679

 I am absolutely loving all of the statement necklaces in BP right now!  I wore this Carole chain necklace today!

_7294431 _7129253
_7171398 _7286669

Carrying a statement bag or clutch is a good way to constantly accessorize.  Try a bag with studs or metallics!  

_7261337 _7265909

 Sparkly lipgloss or nail polish always helps to bring out my inner sparkle!  I want BP's glitter and lace nail sets, so pretty!

Fall Getaways

BP's Fall Trend Guide is here!  It includes everything from adventure essentials to motivational quotes and even a playlist for you to download!  The guide reminded me how important it is to breathe, relax and find a way to escape from the daily stress of school, extracurriculars and life in general.  

Slide3
I am currently planning my escape into a world of fall fashion filled with layering, accessorizing and the perfect pair of boots. These are a few of my tips for entering into the magical world of fall fashion...

137711701076643340_2LAYzbdg_c
Don't stop the layering!  Throw on sweaters, jackets and scarves until you feel warm and cozy enough to take on anything and everything.

Accessorize with statement handbags, necklaces and nail polishes to turn the hallways into runways.

Try a pair of boots that are a little out of the box.  Maybe some studs, fringe or glitter?  You'd be surprised what the perfect pair of boots can do for your wardrobe.

I'm also loving the new complete looks!  Which outfits are your favorites?

Criss Cross

Recently, I have noticed the symbol of the cross making an appearance in the fashion world.  From tank tops to sweaters and necklaces to rings, the cross has been making a statement and turning heads.

 Regardless of religious preferences, you have to admit that these girls are looking stylish and chic in their cross-inspired looks!

You can style a simple cross tank or top in any way that you want.  You can easily dress it up and make it girly and feminine or accessorize to make it rebellious and grungy.  How would you wear it?

Aside from wearing cross apparel, you can also add to an oufit by accessorizing with crosses.  I've been seeing a lot of jewelry with sideways crosses and I think that it's a really cool take on the classic cross necklace or pendant.  I'm really loving sideways cross rings!

Falling for October

Happy October! 

America,fall,mood,photography-edba806c0b99669b25638a159cc1ea59_h

I don't know about you, but I have very high expectations for this month!  My calendar is already filled from October 1st to the 31st and I can't wait for it all to get started!

My homecoming is this week, so that means lots of dressing up, decorating and of course the football game!

 My Birthday is in a of couple weeks, so I am currently searching for the perfect birthday dress!

 I love all of these options from BP!

I have a couple of hayrides on my calendar.  I am definitely buying one of these plaid shirts from BP to keep me warm and comfortable while still looking cute!

I have also been brainstorming some Halloween costume ideas.  I'm thinking about dressing up as Audrey Hepburn, but I haven't finalized anything yet…  Check out Emily's post for some costume ideas!

Candy corn, apple cider, pumpkin carving, falling leaves, haunted house visits, closed toe wedges, oversized sweaters, patterned tights and infinity scarves are just a few other things that I know will make my October even better!

Hello Homecoming

For many of us, homecoming is just around the corner.  It's time to start looking for that perfect party dress to dance the night away in!   

Fashion,isacc,mizrahi,model,glamour,black,and,white,dress-67a86cc1602e13a05bd626fb03410454_h
When shopping for a dress for a big event, like homecoming, I think that it is really important for your dress to reflect your personality.  Look for the dress that immediately catches your attention and that brings a smile to your face as soon as you look at your beautiful self in the dressing room mirror.  

Love-db90f4c831484d1f57564e3af42c9940_h

Since homecoming isn't as formal as prom, a short dress is usually a good choice.  I also think that we'll be seeing more dresses in varying lengths, like high-lows, on the dance floor this year.  

IMG_1169-420x308
For those of you who need some inspiration, The Emmy Awards were last Sunday night and all of the stars in attendance looked fabulous!  Although most wore floor length gowns, I think that their looks could definitely inspire a perfect homecoming look!

Sparkle and shine as you dance the night away…  These neutral colored dresses can make just as much of an entrance as colorful printed dresses.

Yellows were all over the red carpet.  Would you be brave enough to go for a yellow homecoming dress?

Fall in Love

It's finally fall and I'm so excited that it is officially time for my favorite season of fashion!  There are so many things to look forward to!

Aquazzura-czarina-boots-diego-diaz-marin19
These are just a few of my favorite things about fall… 

Yellow-leaves-fi30
  Boots:  Riding boots, studded combat boots, colorful rain boots, I know that I will be living in boots all fall and I can't wait to buy a few more pairs!

  Flats:  Flats are the fall replacement for flip-flops or sandals and they're adorable, so investing in a pair or two is definitely worth it! 

91549804896264904_0N3inkA8_f

  Sweaters:  Like Emily and Ashley and fashionistas everywhere, I can't wait to layer on the cardigans and pullovers in every style and pattern.

  Tights and Leggings:  Tights create endless possibilities.  My summer skirts and dresses can make the transition to fall effortlessly with the help of boots, a jacket and of course, tights.  I'm also loving leggings in crazy patterns.  BP's new leggings are exactly what I'm looking for!

  Scarves:  I'm going to be accessorizing with scarves all season long.  Scarf Sunday's anyone?

  Dark Nail Polish:  All of the browns, purples and oxblood colors are so fall.  My nails are currently polished with a light brown chocolatey color.
