Unlock the Style Key

Did anyone catch last night's episode of Gossip Girl?! Apart from the shows obvious good taste in clothes, food, wine, and the sorts, the main character last night was a Tiffany's Fleur de lis Key Pendant with round brilliant diamonds. Just gorgeous!

At $2,650, not everyone can afford such an amazing piece. Here are a couple other options to still give you the Gossip Girl appeal at a more affordable cost.

Nordstrom - $88
Nordstrom - $58
Delia's - $14.50

Ohio Has Style

I seriously had one of the best weekends I have had in quite a while. We spent the entire Saturday shopping at Easton Mall and I may have bought something at every store we visited. Easton may be one of my favorite locations to shop.

I bought an amazing animal print blazer at Francesca's. I have been looking for an animal print to complete my Fall wardrobe and was so excited to have found it. And at an amazing price of $44!

While I cannot wear this, I found it so cool and unique to the area. This is a security car at Easton Mall. I mean, when do you ever see security driving around in this?

We also ate at McCormick and Schmick's and had the most delicous dinner, dessert and wine. Dessert was chocolate in a box! I mean...seriously?!

Much needed family time with an amazing family!

Weekend Weather

I am so excited it's Friday and time for the weekend. I am heading to Columbus, Ohio this weekend for a little shopping at Easton and some wining and dining. I think we even have some plans to see a show. It's safe to say the weekend will be busy and fly by, but nothing is better than spending time with friends and family.

You never know what the weather has in store for you in Ohio so I am definitly bringing along my favorite trench coat from Banana Republic, a tweed Blazer and my tan knee high boots.

Can't wait!!

Season of Capes

I was so inspired this morning when I came into work and saw a co-worker wearing a cape. It's a Euro chic touch to any outfit and I think it's fabulous. I fully embrace any and all trends and I get even more excited to see what celebs do as well.

According to Zimbio, Ke$ha has started a clothing line. And what trend do you think she has taken on? You got it...capes! "[My line] will be coming and there will be capes involved. I'm trying really hard to bring back capes. They've been out since the 1800s, it's about time they came back."

What do you think? Would you wear a cape? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Guilty Pleasures

Thinking about this upcoming Fall Season, I plan to embrace the cooler weather with warm accessories. Suede, Faux Fur, and basic colors will add a touch of elegance and comfort. And who doesn't love to wear fabrics that just make your skin melt?!

The softness of this clutch from TopShop will go with any outfit. You can dress it up or dress it down. I am picturing LBD with this rockin' clutch and over the knee boots. I just got chills thinking about it. And how amazing are these booties from Speigel. $99 and worth it! I would pair with skinny jeans and a white boyfriend button down. I can only imagine how amazing the inside of these boots are with fur. Like walking on a cloud...

As I scour my InStyle, People StyleWatch, Glamour and the other fashion magazines I get relegiously, I am officially ready for Fall. I am so ready that I have began to map out my Fall wardrobe. When choosing a wardrobe for any season, it is probably one of my most exciting times of the year. You may find this lame, I find the feeling like Christmas morning.

2. Oversized Cluth.

Endless - $168
3. Scarfs

 Banana Republic - $49.50

4. Messenger Bag

 Fossil - $168

5. Faux Fur.
