3 Ways to Wear it... The Slouchy Sweater

Not that slouchy sweaters were ever not on trend- they are, after all, almost perfect. They're comfy, cozy, and conceal pretty much anything your heart (or love handles) desire. But this season, if sweater dressing were an Olympic sport, they'd be sticking the landing and taking gold. Here, three ways to style your new knitted BFF...

The Ultimate Fall Style Muse: Ali MacGraw in "Love Story"

I very clearly remember seeing Love Story for the first time because I had just moved to Columbus to start at OSU and didn't know a soul. My apartment didn't have cable or internet for like a week, so not only was I alone, but my only distraction was a book of old DVDs I had borrowed. And maybe it was going to campus or how beautiful Columbus is during the fall months, but something about that movie and that time in my life really clicked and made a huge impact on me. Not to mention that Ali MacGraw's wardrobe is the most quintessentially "fall" look to ever grace the big screen. And while her style in the film is classic, it's also never been more on-trend than this season. Pieces like varsity sweaters, loafers, and even the artist formerly known as the turtleneck, are back and better than ever. Here, my take on preppy, collegiate fashion...




sweater  |  glasses  |  pants  |  hair gloss  |  illuminator  |  earrings  |  shoes  |  bag


Aren't those pieces luxe-looking? Can you believe everything, even the shoes and bag, are under $100?! Same thing in this next look, but this time with a little color...

I'd love to ask what you think of these back-to-school looks, but the more pressing issue here is this: do you agree with me that the movie's tagline (love means never having to say you're sorry) is the dumbest line in movie history? Let's talk about this (and about how much our significant others have to apologize) in the comments section. ;)



September Wishlist: Cozying Up to Fall

Sorry for a general lack of posting lately. I have been so sick for almost two weeks and all I want to do all day is sleep. I always get hay fever/allergies this time of year, but man, this fall is really beating me up. But even though it is literally making me sick, it's still my favorite season because I love the fact that the weather seems to be coaxing my exhausted self to cuddle up in some cozy socks and a soft throw aka my happy place. In fact, this month's wishlist is coming to you straight from my big arm chair with an Autumn Spice candle lit and the remote nearby. Oh the cozy goodness that is fall...
