Fall Fashion 2015

Summer has come to an end. As August wraps up it's final days, we move towards one of the most exciting seasons of the year, Fall! Finally a break from all of this heat. Time to break out the jackets, boots, and let's be honest, pumpkin snacks. If you're looking to refresh your fall wardrobe, here's a quick list of the latest fall fashion trends for 2015. 

1. 1970's
This is not a drill. It's time to break out the bell bottom jeans again (incase you didn't throw them away like the rest of us...) But the biggest trend this fall is 1970's vintage fashion. If that scares you (it should... A little) here's some modern ways to stay trendy...

Flare jeans don't have to be scary! These stylish jeans enhance the natural curves of your legs (And we can finally stop talking about leg gaps ugh). And flare jeans are the best with wedge boots!

Along with flare jeans, these flowy tunics are on the front line of the 70's fashion movement. These blouses look fantastic tucked in or free flowing. They create a great hourglass illusion with your waist and you don't have to worry about arm day anymore. Free flowing fabric will keep your arms looking great whether you hit the gym or not. 

They're not your old school platform shoes, so you can relax. These shoes are called stacked heel pumps. Again, these pair perfectly with flare jeans. Because hey, who said you can't dress jeans up? And berry colors for the fall? Yes, please!

2. Faux Fur

Yes, faux fur. Another staple to our Fall 2015 fashion list. You can make any outfit ten times more glamorous by adding a fur coat to it. We love how they paired fur and lace in this picture. It's delicate and perfect for cold weather. Aka: Perfect summer to fall transition outfit.

And fur vests?! With those flowy blouses?! Can we admire this perfection for a second?

3. Girlfriend Jeans

But Kiersten! You said flare jeans are the fashion highlight this season! Well, they are! But two is better than one, right? Another big jean trend this fall is the girlfriend jean. Like the boyfriend jean, but more fitted. These jeans are distressed, comfy, and cuff at the ankle so they look fantastic with pumps. 

Maybe I'm crazy, but I'm excited for this break from skinny jeans! I think wearing relaxed and flare jeans will make this fall more comfortable for all of us.

We hoped you enjoyed this post! I'm hoping you are as excited as me for fall! Because I know I'm looking forward to those cool crisp mornings!

Dorm Essentials

Are you a college student this fall? Then this post is for you! Here's a list of dorm essentials that you will use your first year in college. Some dorm lists include lots of extra stuff you'll never use when you're away in your new dorm. But here are the absolute necessities you'll find yourself using almost every day.

Scalloped Magnet Board Large - $36.50: I can't even begin to explain how important organization is in college. Between clubs, classes, and football games you'll need to have a place where you can organize your activities. Our scalloped magnet board is not only a great decoration, it'll keep you on top of everything.

Monogrammed Towel Set - $48.50: A good set of towels will last you years. One of the first things I noticed when living in the dorms were the amount of personalized towels everyone had. (Plus then your roommate has no excuse for using your towel!)

Laundry Bag Waffle Weave Monogrammed - $32.50: Sometimes keeping your laundry together at the laundromat is a difficult task. Our laundry bag will be sure to fit all of your stylish clothes and keep them safe from going missing.

Monogrammed White Kashwere Robe Adult - $138.50: Treat yourself to a good robe. Seriously, do it. You might of not have worn robes around your house before but you will in college. Especially if you're living in a dorm where it's a community bathroom. Throwing a robe on is easy when you're showering, cold, or have to answer the door in the middle of the night. It's seriously one of the best inventions ever. 

Monogrammed Lilly Pulitzer Stadium Sweatshirt Blanket - $36: Dorms are cold. Always. The temperature in my dorm never went above 70 degrees. (Okay maybe I get cold easily...) Anyway, a good big blanket will get lots of use in your dorm. When it's cold in the winter, you'll be so glad you got one. 

Monogrammed Organizer Caddy  - $30: Shower Caddies are lifesavers when you're living with community bathrooms. They keep all of your bath supplies together (And if you're anything like me, you have more than enough). Plus who doesn't want to look super cute as they strut into the bathrooms? 

We hope you enjoyed this post! College is such an exciting time to discover who you are. Take advantage of every minute of it!

Monogrammed Ballet Flats - $36.50: These great monogramed flats come in four different colors! You can mix and match them to be a staple item in your every day outfits. 

Monogrammed Navy Striped Campus Backpack - $48: Isn't this backpack perfect?! The navy stripes are so classic they'll match and add to all of your outfits. If navy isn't your color, this bag also comes in pink and aqua. We love the belt strap buckles on this bag.

Gold Tone Seahorse Necklace and Earring Set - $9.50: Add a little nautical to your outfit by dressing up these cute seahorses. Not only does it express your inner mermaid, it's a perfect piece of jewelry to remind you of  last summer.

Lilly Pulitzer Monogramed Pencil Case She She Shells - $28.50: Okay, it's not really an outfit necessity but where else will you keep together all of your school supplies? Keep your pencils and pens in one place with this super cute Lilly Pulitzer pencil case. And the starfishes? They totally match the seahorse jewelry ;)
