Falling into Fall

Tomorrow is the first day of fall. Waah. I love the beginning of fall, but hate the way it ends. All bitter and cold with winter-like weather creeping in. If only I can live in a land of eternal summer all year round! Sigh.

Wrap cardigan, gifted to me similar here, silk top c/o Mott & Bow, black skinny jeans c/o Mott & bow, blue turquoise disk dangle earrings, Target, black wedge sandals, similar, here. Tortoiseshell cat ear sunglasses, Betsey Johnson. Don’t give a damn attitude, earned it.

Time to start transitioning our summer clothes into fall appropriate attire. Today I am adding a wrap poncho. Wrap cardigan? Wrap? Not sure what this is. This wrap thingamabob. (Yes. I think that’s a word. My dad uses it all the time. Haha.) This was given to me by someone who wasn’t quite sure how to wear it. Well. Neither am I sure how to style it, but I thought I’d give it a go.

I chose to wrap the cardigan wrap thingy around my waist and tied it in the back.

Is it weird in the back? And do I care? No. I do not care.

This is what it looks like un-wrapped around my waist. It’s long, the sides hang down. It’s fun, but really, how did the maker intend for this to be worn? I really want to know.

Conclusion of the weird wrap cardigan thingamajig: It’s soft and warm and weird shaped, but I like it. Still don’t know if I’m wearing it ‘properly’. Still don’t care. I think I’ll play around with this one a bit more as autumn overtakes us.

15 Gifts for her under $100


I particularly love the cat purse from Asos, and the unicorn keyboard cover from Urban Outfitters.

Add a sparkly dress to make those winter days brighter. Sparkles, yes please! Pair this with shimmery eye shadow for all those winter parties.

Plus a warm puffer coat, a cute beanie and a super cute faux fur stole to keep her warm.

Bows on shoes and perfume bottles as well ~ I love bows on anything!

Graphic sweatshirts and fun llama print leggings to boot! You know those llamas are in now, right? Well, they are in and they are pretty adorable, so now you know!

Jewelry is always welcome. Kate Spade studs like shown in the widget below were super popular this year. There are all sorts of colors available. And who could resist a little blinged up Hershey’s Kiss necklace? I don’t even like Hershey’s chocolate very much, but still think this is pretty sweet. (I’m sure they don’t have a Dove dark chocolate necklace for me, and if they did, it wouldn’t be as cute as a chocolate kiss.)

As usual, you can shop my clickable widget below for more fun gifts for her. Hope this helps. If you wait until the last minute it may all be sold out. Don’t be that guy.
