Olive green is one of those colors that looks good on everyone. It is also one of fall’s favorite hues! Olive green pairs well with many colors, and is a more exciting neutral than tan or brown. Here are my favorite ways to mix and match olive green into my autumn outfits.

  1. Layered with a vest: This is the most subtle way to wear olive green. You can layer an olive vest over a patterned button-up for a classic fall look. You can take it off if you get too warm, which is what happens most of the time where I live. Fall mornings are chilly, but the afternoons get warm. A vest gives your outfit a casual yet preppy feel.
  2. Cozy in a cardigan: I love a long cardigan. My favorite are the ones that are long enough to hit at your knees. They are slimming and make me look taller! Pair a long olive cardigan with a light-colored sweater and brown boots for a neutral, understated yet stylish look.
  3. Time for a turtle neck: In the last few years turtle necks have really made a comeback. Not only do they keep you cozy and warm, they are also stylish! Pair an olive green turtle neck sweater with a black leather jacket and ripped black skinny jeans for an edgy, fun fall look.

Happy fall, y’all!

Plaid: Fall’s favorite pattern. You can wear it many ways, with many layers, and in many color combinations! Sometimes, with all those options, it can get a little overwhelming. To simplify styling plaid this Fall, I’ll give you my 3 favorite ways to wear it.

  1. Layered: One plaid shirt can be worn in so many ways. It can be worn under a sweater, cardigan, vest, army jacket, and so on. You can tone down the pattern by layering it under things, or let it be the centerpiece of the outfit by wearing it by itself.
  2. Accessorized: Plaid scarves are timeless and go with just about anything! You can drape a plaid blanket scarf around your shoulders to keep you warm, and can wear a pair of plaid gloves to add accent to any fall ensemble.
  3. Statement: Make a plaid piece the statement item of your outfit. I love a cute plaid skirt with a simple top and riding boots. The pattern doesn’t overwhelm the outfit and gives it the perfect amount of “pop.”

I am ready to rock some plaid this Fall!

Fall Athileisure Style

Athleisure is a trend that I am loving. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and style. So, they are athletic clothes that are both trendy and functional, meaning you can wear them to the gym and then to the grocery store and look stylin’ while doing both. This trend is both comfy and cute, so I am ready to hop on board. This sounds like great “college wear.” Here are 3 athleisure looks to try this fall and winter.

  1. Super casual: In this style we see workout leggings paired with a loose tank top layered under a simple pullover. The outfit is finished off with some slip-on sneakers. I like this look because it is effortless and really casual, but it is also comfy and can be worn out and about.
  2. Cute and comfy: This next look pairs workout leggings with some Hunter boots, and white long-sleeve tee layered under a cute thermal pullover and puffy vest. This style is really preppy and cute while also being comfy and practical. It is great for days that start out cold but warm up as the day goes on because you can shed layers.
  3. Trendy and effortless: This next look is the most complex, but is also my personal favorite. This look pairs some workout leggings with awesome textured patches on the knees, a white long-sleeve tee, and a green army jacket with an infinity scarf to top it off. The tennis shoes keep the outfit athletic while the army jacket takes it to a more “street-worthy” state.

I love outfits that I can wear straight from the gym to run errands, or just to be comfy while I’m out and about! Athletic clothes can be dressed up in so many ways to make them more “outfit” ready. Who says comfy can’t also be cute?

XOXO, Chels

Who says you cannot wear white after Labor Day? I petition that we throw that rule out the door! Why put those perfectly good white jeans

away for the fall/winter when you could rock them all year long? Here are my favorite ways to wear white jeans in the fall.

  1. With a neutral sweater: If you are looking for a casual outfit to wear to school, pair your white skinnies with a neutral colored oversized sweater. I actually love a ripped pair of white skinnies with this outfit. Pair with some ankle booties for a cozy, casual cold weather look.
  2. With a jean jacket: A dark jean jacket adds so much dimension to a simple outfit. Pair white jeans, a simple gray shirt, and a denim jacket for a simple, sweet fall look. Toss in some suede booties to complete the ensemble!
  3. With gingham: Gingam was huge this summer, and it will totally carry into the cooler weather seasons. It is so classy and cute and vintange and just all around adorable! Tuck a gingham button up into your white jeans, or just tuck in the front and let the rest of the shirt hang loose, and layer in a thin tan belt. I would wear some white Keds sneakers with this duo for a classic, timeless combo.

People will forget the phrase “don’t wear white past Labor Day” when they see how cute you look in your fall white jeans ensembles!

XOXO, Chels

How to Style Black on Black This Fall

I think wearing black on black is so chic and sophistocated. But, there is a difference between wearing all black and looking sophistocated and wearing all black and looking overly grungy. We want to lean more towards classy and chic, so here are a few ways to do just that!

  1. Play with shades: There are different shades of black. When I say that, I mean there is lighter blacks that are more dark gray-ish and then there are pitch blacks. My advice is to play with different shades of black and dark gray in an outfit to add dimension and break up the black.f38aae0339472b8db4a38cf381077481
  2. Work with patterns: Wear black ripped jeans with a quilted black leather jacket and plain black or dark gray tee. The different patterns and textures of the pieces will keep things interesting and distract from the solomness of the dark shade. You can also wear black tops with white trim or patterns to add some accent!
  3. Go bold: This look is for the girl that knows wearing all black is an art and takes planning, and she embraces it. Like I said earlier, there is a fine line between looking sophistocated and going too overboard with wearing all black. In this outfit we go bold and we pair plain black skinnies with a classic leather biker jacket and black booties. We can even toss in a black handbag with silver zippers and snaps, so that the accents on the handbag accentuate the oufit. The silver accents on the buckles of the boots and the snaps on the jacket and handbag help break up the black.

Remember to keep things classy and chic when planning an all black ensemble. Be bold, and be brave when making fashion choices! J

Converse shoes are coming back with a bang! I see them everywhere, and I love it. I love their retro flare. In the summer time girls we wear Converse with jean cutoff shorts and t-shirts, but in the cooler fall temps the outfits transition just like the weather! Here are my favorite ways to wear Converse shoes in the fall.

  1. Comfy cozy: For a chilly day at school, wear a pair of dark jeans, a cozy over-sized sweater, and some white Converse. It doesn’t get any cozier than that8772f6dff43b5c7de4a1fa53354b7114
  2. Edgy: Pair some leather leggings and white hi-top Converse with a white tee and army jacket for an edgy outfit.
  3. Cute and casual: A great everyday outfit is converse with ripped jeans and a white tee layered with a chunky long cardigan! This is a great outfit for school or running out and about.

Converse can be worn so many more ways, they are just so versatile and timeless! What is YOUR favorite way to wear them when the weather gets cool?

To me, one of the classiest, most preppy patterns is plaid. Wouldn’t you agree? The best time to wear plaid is during the autumn and winter months, and luckily those months are upon us! Here are a few of my favorite ways to pair up plaid this season.

  1. Dress it up: Layer a chunky cable knit sweater over a plaid skirt or dress for a layered fall look. Add in some booties and a felt hat to complete the ensemble! I love this pairing because it is just too cute for words! So pretty and preppy.13497777_912703465506195_5742700925156432790_o
  2. Layer it up: Pair your favorite plaid flannel with a puffy or faux fur vest for a cute, simple, everyday look! Add some brown riding boots and you are good to go. If you want something casual, pair a solid long sleeved tee with dark pants and a plaid flannel wrapped around your waist.
  3. Scarf it up: The easiest way to wear plaid this season is to wear it in scarf form! Pair a plaid scarf or blanket scarf with your favorite sweater to add a little extra oomf to your outfit.

Fringe is one of my favorite fall fashion statements! It is so fun and flirty. I love subtly working fringe into my fall outfits. There are so many ways to wear it. Here are a few essential fringe pieces for your fall wardrobe!

  1. Fringe jacket/sweater: I love fringe outerwear. If it has subtle fringe, it is an A+ in my book. Too much fringe is too overwhelming, but a little as an accent is perfect! Wear some statement jewelry like a watch and bangles for accessories, and layer a simple tee under your fringe to keep things simple.
  2. Fringe booties: Wearing fringe booties with a simple outfit takes it to the next level! Use your booties as the statement piece of the outfit, or
    wear some fringe jewelry to play on the fringe accents on your boots.x354-q80
  3. Fringe satchel/handbag: This is another sweet accent piece. A simple fall ensemble with a fringe purse is the perfect pair! Make sure you keep your outfit simple if you are wearing fringe accents, though, to ensure you don’t have too much going on. Simple = safe!

How will YOU wear fringe this fall?

Usually when I think of cold weather fashion I think of shades like white, grey, brown and black and muted, darker tones. After the fall colors fade away and the winter the skies are gray, and if you don’t like the cold, your mood is gray as well! One way to drown out the late fall/winter blues is to add color to youimagesr wardrobe. Here are a few ways to add colors back into your ensembles.

  1. Coats: Who says coats have to be neutral colors all of the time? Not me! I love to wear a statement coat, such as my red pea coat, to work some color back into my outfits!
  2. Scarves: Scarves are a great way to spice up your outfit. Wear a statement scarf with a solid shirt to add some dimension.
  3. Hats: I love wearing hats in the fall and winter, and if you follow me on Instagram you totally know what I am talking about! They are a great way to stay warm and look cute at the same time.
  4. Handbags: By adding in a colored handbag to your outfit you can effortlessly slide in some color.
  5. Sweaters: Colored sweaters… a total yes! I have a coral colored sweater that I just love, and I wear it with dark jeans and riding boots for an easy, comfy chilly weather outfit!

How are YOU adding color into your cold-weather wardrobe?

When you think of peplum style tops, you probably think of summer and spring because they are flowy and light. But, fall is also a great time for peplum tops. Here are my favorite ways to style these fun, cute tops during the cold fall weather!

  1. Cozy and casual: I love cozy tops like this. They are tight at the top and then flare out at the bottom, so they show your curves while still being loose and cozy. You can wear this cozy top with jeans or leggings for a comfy cold-weather outfit.ec18ed85cf1bd9e031c7a424fbcf8633
  2. Pretty and plaid: Fall is all about plaid! I love the combo of plaid and peplum because it is a more feminine flare on your typical plaid button-up shirt. Paired with some dark jeans and nude booties, it is the perfect fall outfit! Id wear this anywhere from the pumplin patch to out to a casual dinner out.
  3. Whistful and fun: This is a more trendy look at your fall peplum style! Bell-sleve shirts are really in, and this sort of shirt is “hippie-chic.” I love how it is paired with lace-up flats and distressed skinny jeans. I think this is a great everyday look for the fashion lover in all of us!

Have fun playing up your feminie side with peplum shirts this fall!

XOXO, Chels

Okay ladies, do you ever pull on a pair of jeans in the fullsizerender-54morning and then stare at your shoes thinking “What kind of boots do I wear with these?!” because, lets face it, finding the right kind of boots for each style of jeans can be quite a task. Are booties best? Riding boots? Over-the-Knee boots? Wedges? So many options! I came up with a handy dandy cheat sheet to help guide you in your pairing.

  1. Skinny jeans: If you are keeping it casual, knee-high boots like riding boots are best for these jeans. If you are getting a little more dressy, try wedges or short stylish booties.
  2. Boyfriend jeans: These jeans are so fun to wear. Simple short booties work great with these for a simple but stylish ensemble.
  3. Flared jeans: These jeans are super slimming. If you are keeping it casual, wear a pair of suede wedge booties. This look is a little bit retro and a whole lot cute.
  4. Boot cut jeans: If you are going the casual route, wear booties. As the name suggests, these jeans are perfect for boots!

Trying to find the right jeans to wear with certain pairs of boots can be a stressful situation when you are running out the door in the morning. I hope this super simple guide helps with the process, and if not, just search outfit ideas on Pinterest!

One trend I am loving this fall is the button-up a-line skirt. I think it is so retro and cute! I have been experimenting with different ways to wear mine this fall, and I have come up with a few favorites. Here they are!

  1. Preppy and classic: Sometimes its fun to play up your preppy side. For a cute classic look, take a suede button-up skirt and pair it with a simple cotton oxford shirt. Add in a scarf that ties it all together and you are ready to hit the town! This is a great casual date night or outing outfit.skirt
  2. Sleek and trendy: If you are looking for a trendy outfit, look no further than a button-up a-line with a simple turtleneck and booties. If you want, you can even layer tights under the ensemble! If you want a sleek look, go for a darker colored shirt, booties, and tights.
  3. Cute and casual: This is how I wear my a-line skirt most often. I have been obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops lately, so I recently paired my skirt with a long sleeve, white off-the-shoulder top. I love the effortless look of this outfit! This is perfect for a warmer fall day.skirt-2

Hip hip hooray for ankle boot season! Ankle boots are a breed of boots that look best with a specific style of jeans: skinny jeans. Knee boots can be paired with a plethora of jean styles, but skinny jeans work best with our beloved ankle booties. Here are my tips on how to wear/style ankle booties this season.

  1. Flat and fabulous: Most of the ankle booties I own have a bit of a heal to them, but I am really digging the flat bottomed bootie this season! It is subtle and simple. Pair flat ankle booties with skinnies, a patterned button up shirt, and a leather jacket for a stylish, easy ensemble.skinnies
  2. Roll it, don’t scrunch it: Rather than shoving the hem of jeans that are too long into your boots, roll the cuffs! This is a cute alternative to letting them bunch or awkwardly pop out of the tops of your boots. If your favorite jeans have a bit of a flare to them at the bottom, just roll ‘em up!
  3. Be aware of your hemline: This goes for all booties. As a rule of thumb, make sure the hem of your jeans hit about an inch above your ankle. This ensures your jeans are at the perfect length to show of those cute booties!

What are your favorite ways to style ankle booties this season?

XOXO, Chels

We’ve all seen the movie Greese, and we have all wished we were Sandy in the very last scene with her sleek black leggings and fabulous leather jacket with her bouncy blonde hair. She totally rocks the look! Well, lucky for you, leather leggings are making a comeback. Don’t believe me? Here are a few super cute outfits that will have you totally convinced:

  1. Leather leggings with slouchy sweater: This is the most casual of the outfits. When you want to feel comfortable and laid back but still look super chic doing it, then this outfit is perfect. The leather leggings spice it up a bit while the sweater keeps it casual.
  2. Leather leggings with jean button up: This outfit is kind of the “in-between” outfit that can be worn as an everyday sort of ensemble. Pair your leather leggings with a jean button up, neutral infinity scarf, and nude booties. You can wear this outfit almost anywhere, from school to shopping or even just out running errands! It combines the edginess of the leather with the subtleness of denim to create a perfectly balanced ensemble.leather leggings collage
  3. Leather leggings with peplum blouse and blazer: This is the dressiest option of them all. Pair your leather leggings with a peplum top, blazer, a cute clutch, and your favorite dressy heels. This outfit can worn to any dressy occasion!

You can find leather leggings in stores like Forever 21, H&M, or even Abercrombie! I will definitely be rocking the leather leggings trend this fall. Will you?

XOXO, Chels
