Laced Up

I can't get enough of the lace up trend going on right now and this sweater from LA Hearts is my go to when trying to achieve a more relaxed look. It is warm enough for the colder months and is the perfect shade of olive green, adding a touch of that utilitarian vibe we all love so much. Keeping with the casual theme, I paired my top with torn up mom jeans from Brandy Melville, suede puma kicks and a tassel crossbody to tie the outfit together. Shop my look below!

Leopard Print Boots

I found the perfect pair of leopard print boots thanks to Sam Edelman.  I'm normally not one to wear a lot of print in my clothing, but I'm loving the animal print shoe trend right now because you can add touches of it without it feeling like too much.  These boots are super chic with the pointed toe and kitten heel, and for that reason are also really comfortable.  Sign me up! 

I decided to showcase how versatile these leopard print boots are by styling them three different ways.  Each look is completely different, and they show how you can wear these leopard print boots day or night! 

The first look is an all denim look, which I am completely obsessed with by the way.  I just threw on a basic pair of denim skinnies and a chambray shirt, along with a camel trench coat to break up the denim.  The camel trench is an older style but I've found similar options (here and here).  This bulldog vintage belt adds a little something extra (I wear it all the time to pay homage to my Frenchie Stella).  

The second look is simple, but can be worn either day or night.  This slouchy grey knit dress is so comfortable and looks effortless paired with these leopard print boots.  

The third look might be my favorite (Black and white is my fave combination).  These coated black skinnies are by J Brand and fit like a glove (I've worn them previously in my Plaid post).  I threw on a basic white tee and my black skinny scarf.  This grey blazer is vintage Elizabeth and James, but I've found similar options (here and here).  Shop everything below!

High Knee Boots

High knee boots have always been a trendy fashion statement, but it seems that lately they are making more of an appearance than ever. The high knee boot is both functional and stylish.  From dresses to tucked in denim, you can easily dress them up or down for any occasion.  Check out some of our high knee boot options from our Best Fall Boots post!

I was a little nervous to try out this trend at first because of my shorter height, but I am kind of obsessed. Surprisingly, I feel the high knee boot would be flattering on mostly all body types. I paired my boots with a basic black dress that was synched in at the waist,  a bordeaux croc skin crossbody bag and a bright red lip for some added fun.

Makeup Organization Ideas

I’ll admit it, when it comes to beauty and skincare products, I tend to be a bit of a hoarder and my storage starts looking horrific as my collection continues to grow.  But lately, with life getting to be so hectic, I am realizing that keeping some kind of makeup organization makes my day to day routine just a little bit easier.  I decided to do a major cleanup and revamp of my collection, and get rid of anything that was old or I knew I really didn’t need. After a few teary eyed goodbyes, I was left with my necessities and a feeling of accomplishment.

My main makeup organizer is from the Original Beauty Box, it is a pricier option, but a great investment. The beauty box provides an ideal amount of space to keep all of your  makeup essentials, it features four drawers and dividers that allow you to separate by product. The clear Lucite material adds a cute design element and makes it easy to find what you are looking for.

I store my lip products in an acrylic tray with dividers, it is large enough to store my collection and makes it easier to sort all of my lipsticks so they never go neglected.

I always have so many mason jars lying around the house and thought they would work great for my brush holder. They are perfect because they are large enough to hold several of my bulkier sized brushes. Another great option is to clean out old candle holders, they will add a pretty decorative touch to your room.  

Most of the time, palettes are large and bulky and hard to store. Since I am working with a small space on my dresser top, I thought it would be fun to keep them out on display, sandwiched between two elephant book ends I scored from Home Goods.  For another option, use a desk file organizer, similar to this one here
