Denim distractions. Those are my favorite kinds of distractions. Online shopping with about a thousand dollars worth of clothes in my cart, then moving on to a new online shop to browse…without purchasing the hundred items of clothing and accessories, of course! I started this blog because I am passionate about putting outfits together and styling each one …and it has definitely been a long time coming.
Let’s just start with the truest fact known to man: I love shopping. I mean I REALLY love shopping. Once I get in the zone, there is no stopping me. I will go full force and bee-line from the racks, to the dressing room, to the cash register. However, as much as I adore my shopping (cardio), there are some days when I just want to stay in my loungewear (pi’s) and not leave the house. The dilemma? I still want to be able to shop. While I’m all about trying new trends, full blown pi’s (I’m talking oversized sweats and probably an old boyfriend’s hoodie) haven’t quite made the trend list this season. What’s a girl to do? Well, that’s where the Meraya app comes in.
Meraya is an app where you can try on all sorts of accessories like necklaces, ties, sunglasses, bow ties, and hats, all on your phone. It uses snapchat-like filters where you can see what an accessory will look like on you before you purchase anything. It’s great because you are able to visualize if a necklace or pair sunnies will work with your face or not before whipping out your credit card.
I think this app is such a great and unique tool, and it’s something I haven’t seen before. I ordered two necklaces, and let me tell you, it was hard to pick only two! I loved pretty much all of them. I received my pieces, and they were beautiful…both on the app and in person! You can download the app for free and get started on trying on some fun accessories.
I also have a promo code for you!

Layers on layers on layers. Fall is for layers. Layers of apple pie, layers of sugar and cinnamon cider donuts, and layers of clothing. I find that my favorite looks are the ones where I layer on a ton of different pieces because it somehow all comes together in a chic, effortless way. Pieces that you’ve already worn can look brand new again because of the endless possibilities that layering offers. Incorporating different lengths and textures with the layers will make the outfit look more intricate. So, after you layer on some ice cream over top of your warm apple pie (tell me I’m not the only one), layer some pieces together that you already own, and see what new looks you can come up with!

One big accessory trend this fall and winter are large and in charge jewel encrusted crystals. The shinier and bling-ier , the better. From “party girl” chandelier earrings giving a Studio 54 vibe seen on the runways of Isabel Marant and Saint Laurent, to ear cuffs with a torrent of crystals by Oscar de la Renta. Accessories will be bolder this upcoming fall season, and I can’t wait to jump on the jewel encrusted train (cue my hand sewn jewel bib necklace). What bold accessories are you going to be sporting this fall?
