13 No-Fuss Fall Accessories

Summer, it’s been real. But I’m making room for autumn. The warm-hued makeup palettes and 5-layer outfits are just as exciting as the pumpkin-flavored menu items and brand new season premieres. (C’mon, Shonda Rhimes!) While I revel in fall fashion, I think certain accessories can seem a bit impractical. Wide-brimmed wool hats are romantic, unless you’re sitting behind one during your 9:00am lecture. And suede booties are just asking to be rained on. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of accessories that are easy to find, easy to style and easy on the wallet.

Here are mine, along with my picks for some pretty impressive gifts, either to yourself or from your boo-thang. (more…)

The Love Below

This past week, much of the Midwest was frozen solid in a record snow storm. Wind chills reached the negative forties. Entire bodies of water turned to ice. And I had to scrape what felt like pounds of snow from on top of my car. But the weather got me thinking: what are the best wardrobe choices for subzero temperatures? I know the obvious choice is down-filled snowsuits that zip up to your eyelashes. But is there a way to be cute without being cold? (more…)
