B Needed: Owl sweater

I never thought I needed an owl sweater but this gives me a new outlook. Remember Kate Bosworth at last season's Burberry show effortlessly pulling off a sweater with a hooter on the front? Madewell recently just added an owl sweater to their new arrivals and it might be worth the purchase. What do you think? Playful and fun or too much and back away?

B Key: Velvet Pants

My fall must haves were built up last year by buying classics that would last more than one season. Skinny dark denim, pleated skirts and skimming sweater dresses are a plenty in my wardrobe. Though a pant that has yet to enter my closet is velvet. I probably haven't had velvet in my closet since 1995 but found myself attracted to the rich fall colors available in the classic silhouettes I wear daily.

INSPIRATION: Rosie Huntington-Whitely // Matiere Grise // Alexa Chung
VELVET PANTS: Pilcro Serif Velvet // Joseph Velvet Pants-// J Brand Super Skinny Velvet Legging
COMPLETE THE LOOK (from loafers clockwise): Kate Spade New York Carissa Loafers  // Madewell Silk Dulcet Top // J Crew Wild Side Skinny Bangle // Marc by Marc Jacobs Flipping Out Leather Satchel

As if a whole handbag, ready to wear and men's accessory line wasn't enough. Rebecca Minkoff has now launched her first jewelry collection. I may already have most of the below in my pre-order cart.

B Cozy: The comfort of Fall

This weekend consisted of simple things while the weather changed so I could take advantage of Fall. Slipping on my Ugg boots, baking Trader Joe's pumpkin bread while sipping on apple cider and watching Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken. Cheers to the first of many cozy Fall days in, hope you have someone to cuddle.

B Truth or Dare

Let's play a game of truth or dare. First comes dare... next week will be a truth. You get the idea.

B Dressed for the rain

I love rain. I might be nostalgic of Seattle but whenever I see 50% chance on my iPhone app a small part of me squeals. If only that meant I could stay in bed and watch Breakfast at Tiffany's but that also would mean I wouldn't get to wear my rain boots. Puddle splashing anyone?

ONE: Topshop 'Benny' Faux Fur Trim Parka
TWO: Furla 'Candy' Rubber Satchel
THREE: Hunter Original Tall Union Jack-Wellington tall boots
FOUR: J Crew Pocket Umbrella

B Sparkled: 3 Glitter polishes for Fall


Glitter polish is most easily worn during the holidays or if you're a fashion blogger it may be a year round necessity. For bloggers and all you others, these are my picks for the best glitter for fall.

Gobsmacked by butter London is the best example for fall glitter. Dark and mysterious with a hint of sparkle. With this polish your Halloween costume most likely includes a masquerade mask and a tiara.

Yumi is for the girl who wants an excuse to celebrate. You're prone to popping champagne mid-week (why aren't we friends yet?) and you want your nails to tell that.

Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra in New York gives you glamour in the perfect dark gold. Best transition color for those who would rather skip Halloween and put the Mariah Carey Christmas album on repeat. Hand raised.

B Outfitted: As seen on Instagram


An update on my life as seen on Instagram. In addition to my #ootd images, I can't help but capture some great photos of the city lately. 

Here's a breakdown of the below:
Up top: Loving neutral prints for fall. The leopard sweater is from Forever 21 (hidden treasure) and the plaid flannel has been a staple in my closet since 2010. Goes to show, a good classic top can last through the seasons.
Around my neck: feeling nostalgic over the city, I purchased this Madewell scarf that is printed with NYC neighborhoods on it. Statement necklace in eggplant is the perfect Fall jewelry transition piece. 
On my feet: Not much you need to say about studded loafers (from Aldo). They are studded and loafers, I live in them. Classic rain boots never go out of style. 
Weekend play: Moments captured before a night out. Wearing Madewell black sweater dress and Dolce Vita booties with Current Elliot for Kate Spade clutch (barely seen).
