Things I love…Fall Fashion!

Well Hello old friend! It’s that time again {I’m sure you have been waiting with bated breath, not} Things I love! With the start of school and a new semester I just can’t wait to start wearing fall clothes! It is going to be so nice to be able to walk outside for five minutes and not have sweat running down your forehead! gross! So here is a little peek at some fall fashion I will be sporting in the cooler weather.

1. Big Sweaters. I love sweaters so much, in fact it in 100 and something degrees outside right now and I am wearing a cardigan. I just think they are a great way to pull together a look as well as being modest and warm! I am obsessed with this anthro sweater on the left, too bad it is no longer available in the store or online {so sad} so we will just have to use it as inspiration. I also love this maxi skirt with the sweater on top, it’s a great way to use your summer maxi’s in the fall! It really makes a great look.

2. Blazers. I think blazers and jackets are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet! You can wear them  to work and then out on the town later. They can pull a look together and make you look instantly chic {Chic c’est la vie, sa bonne, sa bonne}! Still can’t get over this leather jacket in the middle! SO CUTE! 

3. Fur Vests. I know this may be pushing the edge for some of you out there, but really you should give fur {or faux fur} a chance. I think fur gives you instant confidence. It’s is totally rocker but it is also has a lot of elegance. Wear this with solid shirts or even a sheer blouse, go for it…get your Rachel Zoe on! 

4. Fall Pants. These JCrew cigarette pants are incredible. JCrew has a lot of different colors of these pants in their fall line including cobalt blue. I love the idea of mixing things up and having such bright colors be apart of your fall wardrobe! Can I just say,  I  love that wide leg pants are coming back!  They are so slimming and are really refreshing after years of skinnies {not that I am throwing mine away}. This look is best with a fitted top since the bottoms are already exaggerated. Prefect for the weekend…as well as those blazers, sweaters, and fur!

5. Accessories. How awesome are those messenger bags?! I think they are incredible! Too bad they have quite a steep price tags! I will be on the look out for something similar at H&M, F21 & Zara! Scarves work perfectly to freshen up an outfit! I personally own a lot of scarves {hoarding? nahh}. Some of my favorites are ones that I have picked up from my travels. I also love that they are affordable…really get your bang for the buck! Be on the look out for pretty silk ones for all of your new blazers! 

6. Nail Polish  My favorite part! This fall Chanel is coming out with three new blues for their fall line. This makes me so happy! If you are not wanting to spend $20+ on a bottle you may want to check Target for similar colors! Essie’s fall line is filled with muted neutrals. I can’t wait to try these out! {nail party!} 

Well there you have it. My favorite Fall Fashion of the season! I am by no means an expert…but, I hope you enjoyed my tips! I hope you  have a fabulous weekend, and make sure  head over to NorthPark to freshen up your fall wardrobe!

Things I love…Dallas!

First off…

ok now that we have that covered...DALLAS!

What a wonderful place to love, right?! Dallas my residence, school namesake, and blog name-it’s only been a matter of time before I blogged about it! I thought that today I would include some of my favorite restaurants in the Big D!

1 | Tillman’s Roadhouse: Walk in the doors and you will be blown away! Literally it is the cutest thing ever. Think Texas inspired Anthro decor…sounds perfect to me! They have wonderful southern comfort food that has been polished up a bit! You can even roast smores at your table. I knew that one would sell you, you need to go tonight!

2| La Duni: it just makes me smile. So beautiful, classy and delicious, gosh it’s just fantastic! They make incredible latin inspired dishes that are so freaking good. Also their baskery is out of this world. You have to get one of these cakes Cuatro Leches Cake or Rollo de Canela Y Nue. Amazing. Oh and their unofficial slogan is, “a day without cake is a day without love”….let’s just say they speak my love language. 

3 | Village Burger: if you stop by any night of the week you have a 50/50 chance of seeing my roommates and myself at this uptown staple. Village Burger is centrally located in West Village and offers not only burgers but to die for chicken {$5.00}. This place is just plain cool and its a great people watching place…always a plus! 

Dallas is the best. Seriously I am so blessed that I get to live is such a beautiful city filled with the people I love! I hope you enjoyed this quick list!

Any Dallas haters out there? Ft. Worth lovers?

What is your favorite part of the Big D?

Yayy Weekend!

Things I Love…Shoe Clips!

This week I was having a hard time trying to think of something to feature..and then I looked down!

Shoe clips! They are brilliant! I found the pair that I am wearing now from Target {only $6.99}.

They are very Tory Burch-esque {without the $200+ price tag ouch}

I know some people may find the thought of shoes clips as tacky or cheap.

And to that I say…Get ova yourself! Lighten up already!

They are fun! Plus they help make your go to-everyday work shoe special!

I looked up different kind of shoes clips and found some great ones online!

Sequin Hearts {presh}

Gold Bows {DIY}

[I am excited to try and make my own clips]

Oh and you can use old clip-on earnings! The possibilities are endless.

Sooo do you think you will try out shoe clips? Too Tacky for you? Headed to Target now?

I would love to hear from you 🙂

Things I love…Audrey Hepburn

Let’s face it, is there any one more chic, classic, graceful, lovely and talented than Audrey? I think you would be pretty hard pressed to find someone. I think she is practically perfect in every way.

I am pretty sure Audrey Hepburn was the first “movie star” I ever remember. I would stay at my Grammy’s house all the time when I was younger and my favorite movie to watch was My Fair Lady. I don’t know what I love most about it, but I sure did love it!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my favorite movie of all time. I LOVE the set design, her apartment decor, the amazing costumes, the storyline, New York City…gosh it really is so great! Also love that every time I watch it I catch something new, they just don’t make movies like that anymore!

Almost forgot, Moon River…it’s the best!

If you haven’t seen this movie, you MUST! Hit me up! I have a few copies you can borrow!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes by the lovely Audrey…

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles. ”

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. ”

“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all. “

I think that she is a fabulous example for girls especially now days the trash that is on TV and movies. Audrey is a timeless classic beauty for the ages.

So let me strongly encourage you, if you haven’t seen Funny Face, Sabrina, My Fair Lady, Roman Holiday, or Breakfast at Tiffany’s…you must!

You are going to love her!

Things I Love

Inspired by one of my favorite brands Kate Spade and their Things We Love, I thought I would start doing a weekly post on Things I Love.

So…this week I decided to feature a few of my favorite websites. I spend a great deal of time on the computer at work and at home {maybe a little more than I should.}.

So here goes nothing!

 1 | The Daybook I love this girl! I just stumbled upon this blog a few weeks ago and I’m obsessed! She is sooo cute and funny! I guess you could classify Sydney as a style blogger but I really enjoy her lifestyle pieces too! One of my favorite things is her Awkward and Awesome Thursday’s. So if you have a minute pop on over and see what she has going on. Oh and she is prego {presh}!

2 | rdio.com  This is a music/social networking site that lets you add albums and songs into your collection. You can follow and add friends and see what they are listening to. It’s perfect for work because there are no commercial and you specify what you are listening to! You pay between $5-$10 a month depending on what features you would like. They also have the radio option {thinkpandora} if you like. Oh and you can also sync it to your iPhone as well as your computer. I just think it is fantastic! Try it out, I think you will love it!

3 | Pretty Young Professional Check them out! This site really is incredible. They feature all kinds of articles that include: How to land a successful interview, from dead in to dream job, how to survive post college social life and many more! They are a great resource to any pretty young thangs out there!

4 | Dmagazine Oh how l love Dallas! D Magazine is one of my favorites magazines for sure! But the website is just as great {and free SCORE}! Their website is packed full of awesome content. They have articles on best restaurants, nightlife, neighborhood, coffee shops {and more} in Dallas. They also have really great articles straight from the magazine! I encourage you to check them out, maybe find a new local restaurant that you will love!

5 | Jenna Beth  Well I am a little biased with this one but, its my blog so it’s ok! Jenna is my incredible best friend! She is literally the nicest person I have ever met! She is smart, creative, fashionable and not to mention a newlywed! This is her blog, I know you will love it! Look out for her Top 5’s they are awesome! She has even been featured in the online magazine Destiny in Bloom. Be on the look out for Jenna, she is about to take off!

Well I hope you have loved {get it? okiwillstop} my first things I love post!

What are some of the things you love? Favorite websites, daily blogs??

Hope y’all have a fab weekend!

xoxo, green
