3 Ways to Wear White Jeans for FallFall is officially (and finally!!) only 2 days away! I’m hoping to wake up on Sunday and it will be about 20 degrees cooler (wishful thinking!). But when the weather actually does cool off, we’ll all still be wearing our white jeans, right? right?!? No more of this ‘no white’ nonsense.

Styling Tips
The key to making your white jeans work for Fall (or any season for that matter) is pairing them with seasonally appropriate pieces. By staying away from light, flowy pieces, and reaching for chambray, leather, plaid, and leopard instead, white jeans will look fresh, crisp and definitely not out of place in your Fall wardrobe.

Floating Polka Dots ManicureNude nail polish can feel fresh, clean, and simple or make you say ‘why even bother painting your nails’?! I, for one, lean to the ‘fresh & simple’ side and love a nude mani. But I can never leave anything plain, so I decided, why not throw some polka dots into the mix!!

Here’s What You’ll Need…

Floating Polka Dots Manicure - What you'll need

+ Nude polish that closely resembles your skin tone {Here’s a wide variety of nude shades}
+ A basic white polish or add a summer neon for a neon + neutral look
+ A dotting tool – Got this guy off eBay (only $1!!), but could also use the head of a pin or bobby pin

Start with two coats of nude polish, then break out the polka dots!

PETER PILOTTO for Target Collaboration AnnouncementI’ve barely recovered from the shopping marathon that was Phillip Lim for Target on Sunday and then, here comes the latest announcement of another must-have designer collaboration! This time around, Target’s bringing on board the London-based design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos who create the graphic and colorful line, PETER PILOTTO.

Although the collaboration is set to hit the shelves February 9th 2014, the collection should be perfect for your Spring wardrobe. PETER PILOTTO for Target is slated to have around 70 fab dresses, skirts, clutches, and even swimwear!, with most pieces selling for under $60 (yay! for wallet friendly!).

So What Can We Expect… The brand is known for its strong graphic prints and bold color combos, so I would expect nothing less from this collaboration. With celeb fans like Kerry Washington, Kristen Stewart, Miranda Kerr, Kate Bosworth, Sienna Miller and Emma Watson, I’m sure it will be fabulous.

I seriously can’t wait to check out the PETER PILOTTO for Target lookbook, but until then, here’s some of the gorgeous pieces celebs have worn to give you a little idea of what us real girls might be wearing next year…

Bright Maxi 1Bright Maxi 2Bright Maxi 4Bright Maxi 3

Hat   •   Shirt   •   Maxi   •   Sandals c/o JCPenney   •   Bag (similar)

Maxi dresses might just seriously be one of the best fashion inventions. I mean, they are practically pajamas you can wear in public, amIright?? Who doesn’t love being completely comfortable ALL.DAY.LONG!

And now that the weather is entering that cold in the morning/scorching hot in the afternoon thing, this dress is totally my go to. It’s perfect on it’s own, but I absolutely love the option of throwing on a button-down shirt and tying it up. Completely changes the look and keeps the evening chill away.

Styling Tips: Want to make this look feel more Fall appropriate? Swap the colorful button down for a chambray one and add ankle boots!

     

Celebrity Look for Less: Karolina Kurkova

 Tee    •    Jeans (marked down to $24!)    •    Sandals    •    Sunnies    •    Lipstick    •    Bangles

Nothing like seeing a gorgeous super model like Karolina Kurkova wearing a look that is so down-to-earth and easily obtainable for us real girls!

Her perfectly paired prints are the ultimate combination of casual and chic. What could be better for running errands on the weekend than a comfy tee and flats?! And with the cool weather ever-so-slowly creeping in, a denim jacket would be the perfect topper to fight off an evening chill.
