four ways to wear: festival fashion.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; style blog; summer outfit photo; what to wear at a musical festival; Amanda Sanchez of Little Miss Fearless, Lynzy Coughlin of Sparkling Footsteps; Caitlin Lindquist of A Little Dash of DarlingIt’s round three of my style collaboration with Lynzy of Sparkling Footsteps, Amanda of Little Miss Fearless and Caitlin of A Little Dash of Darling.  This week, we’re showing you four ways to rock festival fashion and coincidentally, we all agreed that maxi dresses are the obviously the way to go!

Wonder snakeskin skinny cuff; J.Crew orange friendship bracelet; NOLA boutique red bracelet; Target glitter sandalsWhen brainstorming outfits for this challenge, I was tempted to reach for a graphic tank and cutoff denim, but that seemed a little too simple (ask me again when temps hit triple digits).  This maxi dress (last seen here and here) was a little more chic, but just as easy going.  Top it off with a stack of jewelry, a crossbody bag and my new favorite glitter sandals and I’m ready to jam!

See how Lynzy, Amanda and Caitlin interpreted festival fashion over on their blogs!

fall textures.

Fall is back to its regularly scheduled programming with sunny skies, golden leaves, and perfect temps of 65°F.  I’m planning to wear skirts for as long as I can, but that doesn’t mean I’m skimping out on all the fantastic fall textures.  Tweed is an obvious go to when the weather cools down, but lace and denim add a little more depth to complete this autumn outfit.

monthly musts: october 2012.

I didn’t even realize it was October until yesterday was nearly over.  So to ring in the new month, I’m starting a new segment called Monthly Musts — a roundup of essential items to get you through the next page of your wall calendar.

For October, I’m coveting pieces that are rich in color and texture.  Fall is a lot colder than my little Arizonan mind imagined so I’ll be stocking up on light and thick-knit sweaters, printed pants, and cozy boots.

1. BaubleBar Bauble Bib — $36
2. Loeffler Randall Rain Boots — $150
3. Essie Fall Nail Polish Collection — $17
4. Topshop Camo Print Skinny Jeans — $80
5. Apt. 9 Snakeskin Collar Necklace — $18.20
6. Kate Spade Chambers Street Carlyle Bag — $358
7. J.Crew Tippi Sweater — $59.50 (on sale!)

sweater + leather.

My favorite part about dressing for fall is definitely playing around with different textures.  It’s the easiest way to incorporate a multitude of looks into one.  A light-knit sweater and a (faux) leather skirt make for a nice balance between prep and punk, but the jeweled collar necklace and lace clutch add a feminine feel.  Outfit identity crisis? Maybe, but mixing and matching is just way too fun.

Wear
Sweater: J.Crew (on sale!)
Skirt: Kirna Zabête x The Shops at Target
Necklace: JewelMint
Bracelet: J.Crew
Bag: Jason Wu x Target
Shoes: Zara
Lipstick: Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop
