Fall Fashion (And All Pretty Inexpensive!)

Steph asked me to write a post with Fall looks for a trip she was making to crisp, cool Colorado. Awesome. Exceppppppt for the fact that she’s already arrived in Colorado, and well, whoops. Sorry Steph. Better late than never!

So here’s a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been eyeing for Fall. Which, btw, has FINALLY arrived in So Cal. I’m so pumped yo. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I get so many fashion ideas from girls out there blogging new Fall looks daily, many of them looks on the cheap – which I SO appreciate (that would be you, Miss Mary Powers and Andee Layne). So Imma return the favor for all of you! None of these are gonna break the bank terribly. Here we go:

First, MOTO JACKETS. I recently went to a party in a house in the Hills where every girl looked like they’d stepped off a trendy little fashion blog, and I kid you not, all were wearing black moto jackets. Wear with cute jeans or a maxi dress and voi-frickin’-la:

BOMBER JACKETS – Perfect for the newly cool weather around the country, before the biting winter cold arrives and slaps ya in the face:

A great MAXI DRESS to wear with either a moto jacket or a long nubby cardigan (see below) and knee high boots:

LOAFERS are a thing again this season and I’m personally a fan. They’re polished, classic, and professional (if that’s your steez), and if you get the right ones, they’re pretty comfy:

And boots? Ahhhh, well that’s gonna be a whole separate post – there are just so many good ones.

Let me know if there’s anything else you want me to find – I’m loving scouring the blogs/internet for you ladies!

Listen. Eat. Wear. Read. See. Repeat.

Happy Friday pretties! What are you all doing this long weekend? Hopefully savoring these last few days of summer and relaxing before returning back to the grind. Without further ado, here are five things we’re loving right now. Giddy up!:

We were lucky enough to celebrate our friends’ wedding in Maine last weekend, and have been singing their first dance song all day, literally every day:

As if we needed more proof that Steph’s basically a younger, hotter Martha Stewart, she made this insane orange rosemary chicken recipe a couple times recently and let me tell you, not only is it SO delicious, it makes your place smell heavenly. And it’s so perfect for Fall!

This dress with a pair of over the knee boots and a long comfy cardigan sweater for Fall. It’s been sold our for weeks and just became available for pre-order! Oh yeah… and it’s $48:

Guys and ladies alike will like this memoir (my hubby read it in two sittings) – and the TV/film rights have been snatched up, meaning we’ll probably see it on screen in the near future:

The newest video for Kanye’s new song Fade. And it’s NSFW (sorry Mom)! Listen, we think Kanye’s a big a-hole like the rest of you. Plus his music these last few years has been totally overrated. BUT like it or not, his new song is the biz, and the video is real hot – as in Flashdance for 2016… but naughtier. We almost didn’t post this sucker but hey, it’s our blog, it’s a great song, and we think y’all can handle it.

That’s it for now. Stephie’s chillin’ in San Diego this weekend while I’m gonna be poolside in Palm Springs. Have an amazing weekend!
