1. Hive & Honey Vintage Jeweled Chain Necklace sold @ Piperlime
2. Merino Swing Sweater sold @ J. Crew
3. Moyna 'Deco' Beaded Clutch sold @ Nordstrom
4. Joe's Skinny Ankle Jeans sold @ Nordstrom
5. Charles by Charles David Women's Raphael Boot sold @ Amazon

Over the knee boots have been a trend for the past few seasons; however, I seem to associate them with Julia Roberts in Pretty Women.  I am coming around to the fact that with the right combination they can have a sophisticated look.  Styling tip: if you wear heeled over the knee boots pair them with a more boxy, comfy fit on top, like this look from Miroslava Duma.

A few trends that I have been noticing recently is girls wearing boy's tees and pairing casual tees with a more formal skirt.  Here is a look that I put together with a perfect "Boys will be Boys" tee.  Have a great weekend!

2. Michael Kors Large Lexington Chronograph Bracelet Watch sold @ Nordstrom
3. Hudson Jeans Colette Skinny Stretch Jeans sold @ Nordstrom
4. Vince Camuto Riley Tote sold @ Nordstrom
5. Enzo Angiolini Dipoli sold @ Zappos

A color combo I like for fall is cobalt blue paired with black.  I think gold accessories pair well with this mix, in particular this black faced Michael Kors watch and these fun zippered pumps.   If you want to add a jacket to this look, try a cognac colored one, possibly this leather jacket at Nordstrom - which is inspired by one of my favorite fashion bloggers.

Paige Skyline Skinny Ankle Peg Jeans sold @ Nordstrom
Jimmy Choo Drift Bootie sold @ Nordstrom
Trouvé Croc Embossed Metal Clutch sold @ Nordstrom
Nadri Pavé Open Teardrop Earrings sold @ Nordstrom

This look from Nordstrom is one of my favorite fall color combos -- a simple grey sweater with the hint of an ivory top underneath, paired with skinny jeans and red (burgundy/oxblood) booties. I particularly like the open toe cut-out booties. This would be the perfect college game day outfit, especially if you are an Ohio State fan.  (If you are looking for a more budget friendly option for the booties - check out these Calvin Klein ones here or here (on sale!).

I like to shop at Nordstrom, but I also like to shop at Nordstrom Rack.  I like that the Rack sells discounted items that have moved from the main store to the discount store, and are the same quality, and same products!  I typically can find some good deals.  It is hard to pass up a top for $9.97 that originally retailed for $39.  You can get to the online Rack store by clicking the Nordstrom Rack link at the very bottom of the regular Nordstrom site or by clicking here.  Also, the Rack offers the same free shopping both ways, so you have an easy way to try things out without the extra expense of shipping.
