Cold mornings, cool nights, football games, and hot chocolate…Fall is in full swing. The leaves are turing and the layers of clothing are starting to come out. But some days it is still in between cold and deciding if you want to sweat all day in the perfect outfit you just cannot wait to wear . So lately I have been choosing what I would call a fall alternative outfit. It is cool enough to let air in but you are covered up if that blast of cold comes through. I paired skinny jeans (here), which are great for cold or warm weather, with a light long sleeved button up (similar here), along with open suede flats. I accented this outfit with leopard (clutch, belt), and a necklace and sunglasses to finish the look. What is your favorite fall alternative outfit? Shop mine below.

The first day of college for many university students is starting soon. Whether you are a freshmen or a senior you should always be prepared, especially for the stylish undergrad. I was always told first impressions stick. Considering this you should look your best and be ready for the first day. I have rounded up many of the supplies, clothing options, shoes, and bags you will need to get through not only the first day but the first semester.
The stylish underground first needs a cute planner to keep your assignments and social calendar organized. I would suggest this one here, not only is it girly and colorful, you can choose to write your information on the two page calendar each month or use the weekly pages that allow for more space and detail. The fact that it has stickers does not hurt either. Other supplies need for school are this item here, these, and this. Once you have your supplies you will need a fashionable backpack to keep it all in. This one is super cute. If your are not into backpacks this tote here will definitely do.
Now on to the clothing. Jeans and a nice tees are a must for college students because they are easy and you can dress them up or down depending on your accessories. One of my favorite pair of jeans are these here. They fit great and are under $100. As you know a good pair of denim can be pricey so finding good ones that last, and will not break you is pretty hard. A v-neck tee is essential to have in your wardrobe because they are easy to throw on and go good with most pants, skirts and shorts options. This tee is great and is a neutral.
The next question is….what are you going to wear on your feet? Tennis shoes or gym shoes are best if you are walking long distances across campus. I like these because you can wear them with any color, but if you are trying to be a little more fancy these decorated high-tops or these flats will definitely add more to an outfit.
For those Fall and colder months try a button down. I like theses two, here and here. Also a denim jacket is great for fall. What are your favorite back to school items? Shop my picks below. Enjoy! Have a great first day if you are a student or educator.
The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is well under way. It is a great time to freshen up your wardrobe for less, or even start your Christmas and birthday shopping early. You can save up to 40% on many items.
I am definitely planning on shopping the sale and adding a couple new items into rotation. I love a maxi for the summer so this one here will be in my shopping cart. This dress here is great for many occasions, a baby shower, wedding and even date night. I have this tunic already and love it. Very light and airy good for cool Summer nights.
