THE COOL DOWN

If you've looked at Nordstrom or Topshop lately , one thing is immediately clear: they both have really good outerwear right now, and much of it is selling out FAST.  We live in a time when high-quality jackets and coats can cost you upwards of $1000, so given that most of their options are under $300, it comes as no surprise that fashion girls are heading to both stores to stock up on blazers, jackets, trench coats right now  (at least I am!)

This year, if you want something besides a plain peacoat (although, they've got plenty of those too), you're in luck. I immediately fell in love with this plaid beauty from Topshop because of the tie sleeve details. I stopped by the store with a few coworkers on my lunch break with NO intentions of buying a jacket and we were all sold on it right away... I blame the bows!  This season, there's something for everyone. I saw a coat that resembles your childhood teddy bear (in a good way), there are pretty pink parkas, a stunning emerald-green topcoats, and so much more. Invest in one that you love and you'll be smiling (even when temps hit negative 2!)

BLACK + WHITE + NEVER BASIC

Coco Chanel once said "Black and white’s beauty is a perfect harmony," and I can't help but agree with her. A striking contrast and perhaps the most powerful of all color combos, the opportunity for styling black and white separates are endless. 

Today's sunny fall look features two simple pieces with added details that make it special. Buttons along the skirt and flared sleeves for the sweater, combine for a look that's less than ordinary.

SO CLUELESS

West Hollywood, CA

The 90's called, they want those crop tops back... Well, that's not entirely true. From knee-high socks to neon, slip dresses to high-top sneaks, it's all making a comeback at the moment and it's time yours truly tried on the trend, too. 

I got this little plaid number a few weeks ago because I liked the print and what I didn't realize until I tried it on, was that it also gives off total Clueless vibes.  You guys may have noticed from my recent velvet obsession that I have gone from zero to ninety with my love of this decade. Suddenly, I'm adoring this nod to the past and I must say, the 90's fashion of today is almost as good as the originals.
