My 5 Favorite… Fall Skirts

       Hello to the people who read my blog! Okay, today is Friday… the day I get to tell you about all of my favorite things!  Now although fall is right around the corner… I think that skirts are still fine.  I mean, it’s still pretty warm and I absolutely love when people wear a long-sleeve top or sweater and then wear a short, flouncy skirt!  So cute… so here are some of my favorite skirts for this fall.  Enjoy!

Coming in at 5th place is…

Wet Seal… $18.50

Bring back the summer with a cute, girly skirt like this one from Wet Seal!  Loving the floral pattern, ruffles, and of course the bow!  Match this pretty piece with a plain pink or tan v-neck tee.

At 4th place we have…

Slouchy Pocket Skirt

Charlotte Russe… 22.50

Okay, so I love this one mainly because of the color (plum is über hot this season!) and the pockets (slouchy pockets give a cool, casual vibe!)  Since this skirt is fairly plain you could match it up with a patterned top… maybe a floral print??

And at 3rd place is…

Forever 21… $19.80

This fall everyone needs a plain, pleated skirt!  This tan/brown color is super hot this fall.  The little pleats add a subtle girly twist.  And it can be matched with anything!

Coming in 2nd is…

alana

Abercrombie Kids… $13.93 + 30% off! = $9.75

Okay… so I know this is Abercrombie Kids but I know that some teens and even adults can still fit into Abercrombie Kids (Abercrombie Kids runs larger than normal kids sizes)  But the point I’m trying to make is mainly about the style of the skirt.  And you can find skirts like these everywhere ((Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, everywhere…))  Anyway, I love this skirt because it looks like denim… but it’s not!  It’s so, so, SO much more comfortable.  And, those button are adorable…  It kind of reminds me of Little House on the Prairie. I love it!!

And finally, coming in 1st place is… ((drum roll please!!))

Forever 21… $24.80

OMG! I love, love, LOVE this skirt!!  Why, you ask??  First, this skirt has a bit of military flair which is very trendy this fall season.  Second, the buttons and bow are so adorable!  They add a cute touch without feeling too overwhelming.  Lastly, I love the fit of this skirt.  It really “falls nicely.”

Well, there’s my fave skirts for fall!  Remember that when it starts to get a bit nippy, you can always add leggings or tights.  I absolutely love sheer tights like these:  Plus these are only $4.80 at Forever 21!

Forever 21… $4.80
 
Well, I guess that’s it… So tell me what your favorite skirts are!! Do you agree with mine?? Let me know! Comment below!  (I just rhymed)

Back-to-School Wishlist

Hey there everybody!  Since today is So Random Sunday, I’m going to tell you all about my back-to-school wish list.  Okay, so I really have not done much school shopping… I don’t even have a fab first day outfit!!  So I’m going to have to go to the mall sometime this week…  Here’s an idea of some of the stuff I really want!

      So first, I really want a pair of mid-length shorts because my school has a strict dress code where the shorts must reach the end of your fingertips.  For people like me with really long arms, it’s so hard to find shorts that I can wear!  I’m hoping to catch some mid-length shorts on clearance for cheap!

These are on clearance at American Eagle for $39.95. Love them because they have the military vibe going which is super hot this season!

      Next, I want to get myself a pair of jeggings.  I mean they are basically the biggest craze right now… so I’ll have to try them.  I’ll defiantly need to try them on to make sure they look okay, though…

I really like these from Forever 21.  They are only $14.50.  I love how they are a classic color so they’ll look great with anything!

       The next thing I really want is a good, skinny belt.  I’ll use my skinny belt to cinch tops at the waist… I think it looks super cute and can make any old shirt look brand new again!

This belt from Delia’s is only $9.99.  The classic color will go with anything and everything!  I like how small it is, so it won’t overwhelm any outfit.
     
    Now on to shoes… I could really use a pair of new flats!  I am loving these in particular:
These are on sale for $99.95 at Anthropologie and I love, love, LOVE them!  I really want a pair of peep-toes because I don’t have any and I love the colors and pattern!  The only problem with them is that they won’t match that many outfits… so maybe if I see something like these for cheap, then I’ll get them.
 
     I could also grab some boots that would be perfect for fall!
I love these boots from Forever 21.  And at only $22.80 they wound break the budget!  I think that they are the perfect height and the perfect color to match everything!!
 
    I also need a new school bag!!  I’m kind of unsure of what I want… Again, pretty please post ideas below…  Here’s my idea:
Vintage Tote
I’m not sure how big this bag is… I need a very big bag for all my stuff!  But I love this bag!! It’s only $13.93 from Abercrombie.  I love the olive stripes because olive is such a hot color this fall!  Olive is a great color because it’s neutral and will look good with almost anything!  It will be able to carry me from fall to the end of school which wold be awesome!!
 
Okay, so now I really need a shirt to wear on the first day!  I don’t know exactly what I want… so if anyone has any ideas please post a comment below!!!
 
Well, there’s my wish list!!  I’ll report back to you all after I go and give you the lowdown on what I actually buy!

Must-Haves for Back to School

Hey there!  I’m going to tell you about a couple of items that I think with be über hot this fall season…

Cropped Pants

I don’t really know what to call these other than… cropped pants.  So today I was shopping at this small store that basically buys clothes that manufacturers don’t want… Anyway I got a super cute pair of American Eagle navy blue cropped pants for $2!! That’s right only 2 buckeroos!  I’m so excited about that… Well, cropped pants are a must have for this season.  You could pair them with anything!!  Dress it up with cute flats, and a long tunic top.  Or for a “comfy” look try them with sandals and a plaid shirt cinched at the waist with a belt.

** Hint Hint…  You can make you own cropped pants by rolling up your skinny jeans twice…

Cargo Cropped Pants
  These cute cargo pants are only $11.99 from Charlotte Russe.
Belts
This season belts are back!  Use these sleek chicas to accent any waist.  Simply put on any old belt right over your shirt at the waist.Match it with a plaid shirt or even put it over a cute cardigan.
Check out these belts from Charlotte Russe.  You get three skinny belts for $9.50!  I love the rose-colored ones! CUTE!
Cardigans
If you were to splurge on one item for back to school this would be it.  I love cardigans because they never go out of style and can instantly “jazz up” and outfit or even simply make a shirt more “school appropriate.”  Neutral and earthy colored cardigans are very hot this season. Also, find cardigans with cute little embellishments like the ruffles on the sweater below.
Product Image Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Cardigan Sweater w/ Ruffle - Dark Heather Grey
Wooo!  This cardigan from Target is only $15.00!!  I love the cute ruffles and the earthy gray color!
Jeggings
Jeggings are the new it item of the fall season!  Jeggings (jeans combined with leggings) can be worn with a longer shirt cinched at the waist with a belt.  My favorite outfit with jeggings is the plaid shirt with a belt… Super Cute!!
These jeggings from Charlotte Russe are only $24.50 but right now they are an extra 30% off!  I did the math for you all and they would actually be about $17.15 right now! 
Plaid Shirts
Plaid shirts are back… again!  Pair this classic favorite with a belt at the waist for a super cute feminine look!  Pair it with some jeggings or skinny jeans.  Add a long necklace to up the style factor. 
 
This shirt from American Eagle is only $19.95.  I love all the different colors!  It will defiantly make you outfit POP!
 
Flats
My final must-have for back to school is flats.  Flats are classic, comfy, and cute!  They can dress up or dress down an outfit.  They can be worn with anything.  Flats are the best!  My favorite pair of flats are Me Too flats.  They are super cute but most of all super comfy!   So many flats can give you feet blisters, however Me Too flats are sooo comfortable that you could walk around in them all day!  A lot of times you can find them at your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls.
These are super cute!  You can get them at Zappos.com for $76.13…  If you have a TJ Maxx of Marshalls near you defiantly check there… I bought a cute pair of Me Toos for $34.
 
So that’s my 6 must-haves for back to school 2010!!  What are yours??  Be sure to comment with you 6 back to school must-haves!
