Here’s to trying new things!

For those of you who have been following me from the beginning, you might remember a cute little picture of me in my first pair of shortalls. Needless to say, although they were dearly loved, I was so tired of the bleached shade of blue. Nowadays, overalls and items of the sort cost way more than they did when I first bought my pair for a mere $12. As a girl on a budget, I wasn’t at all looking to splurge on another faddish-yet-staple item. Instead, I started to take what I already had for a little DIY spin. With the help of some black Rit fabric dye, I completely transformed the shortalls into a muted, more versatile pair. I am definitely going to be wearing these more often! (Shoot me a tweet or find me on Instagram if you want me to do a tutorial!)

If you checked on the blog just last week, I revealed some amazing items from the new fall boot collection at Skechers. From premium leathers to city-chic accents, the collection really has it all. In the outfit above, I’m styling my personal favorite—the utility boot. I love how it feels rugged but it still has a sleek aspect to it. It adds edginess to the sharp, baby blue oxford, while adding a clean touch to the dark denim. They look absolutely adorable when paired with knee socks, which is a major plus for the colder months. Plus, you don’t have to worry about being dainty, unlike some combat boots that can barely withstand a jump into a pile of leaves. If anything, scuffing these shoes would only add character!

Skechers: More Than Just Your Favorite Kid’s Shoe Brand

image

#48254, $80, Skechers

Don’t let those brightly-colored cartoon commercials fool you: Skechers footwear is much more than Twinkle Toes and Hot Lights.

Need proof? Check out the brand’s new fall collection, some of which are already online and just waiting to be added to your shoe stash. The Fall ‘14 line is all about bringing back that darker, more rugged effect, all the while adding in some sweet accents, like buckles, zips and studs. The perfect blend of sugar and (pumpkin) spice! The best part? Most all the shoes are reasonably priced at around $100 or under. Talk about a steal!

#48253, $75, Skechers

In addition to their fall boot line, Skechers also has a new premium leather collection. They add a touch of toughness to any outfit, and they’re so durable, you’ll be styling them well into the winter months and beyond. We’re talking strong skins and textured suede, all for $150 or under. It’s not considered a splurge if it’s totally worth it, right?

#48605, $110, Skechers

Thanks to the amazing team over at Skechers, I got my hands on my very own pair of boots, too. I went with my favorite of all the new styles: the Utility boot. For me, fall means back to school—and back to school means lots of foot travel! Between running to classes and rushing to extracurrics, I need a sturdy shoe that I can trust to make it through the wear-and-tear of my busiest hours. A stylish option that can take on the challenge is an A+ in my book any day!

Back to School with The Breakfast Club

image

image

There’s nothing like the start of a new school year: clean notebooks, working pens, and… detention. Well, if you’re going to be spending your Saturday sitting around with a bunch of misfits doing nothing, you might as well look good while doing it. Channel your inner Breakfast Club this semester by updating the signature looks of your favorite 80’s bad-A babes: the Princess and the Basket Case. All you need are a few bold pieces mixed in with everyday staples! Oh, and a few sweet kicks definitely wouldn’t hurt either.

The Princess

image

Go Pretty in Pink with this ensemble, complete with your a short ginger ‘do and best Molly Ringwald impersonation. Color blocking with a pastel palette allows for a sweet yet bold statement. An understated crystal necklace and girly, frilly ankle socks add a little bit of sugar to the spice that is your new go-to pair of SpyLoveBuy sandal platforms. These versatile shoes are perfect when worn alone while the summer weather lingers on, but when paired with some cable knit knee socks, they can easily protect you from the autumn chill. The only thing missing from this look is your proverbial tiara.

The Basket Case

image

Okay, maybe not a complete Basket Case. As much as we love Ally Sheedy, her exact Breakfact Club look isn’t exactly first-impression material. Instead, take bits of inspiration to work into your own wardrobe. The ripped sweater and mom jeans help you pull off her grunge vibe. A high-low tunic worn underneath gives the outfit a unique silhouette while paying tribute to the character’s signature layers. Still too drab for your taste? Playing with color and texture, give your look a mod twist with a few holographic accessories, like a see-through shoulder bag (a much needed replacement for Allison Reynold’s bottomless cotton bucket bag of stuff) and a pair of killer creepers from SpyLoveBuy. “Model off Duty” or genuine messiness gone right? The world may never know.

"She who wears boyfriend jeans shalt never get a boyfriend." -ye old truth

I’m a total skinny minnie—as in, I can’t remember the last time I wore a pair of jeans that weren’t second-skin tight. One lonely night I was going a little shop-happy online at Nordie’s, and these cropped boyfriend jeans got thrown into the mix. I think since I bought them back in April, they had only seen the light of day twice. I mean, low-rise, cropped, baggy denim? Totally not my thing!

For some crazy reason, I packed this bad boy(friend) into my suitcase for my summer’s-last-hurrah trip to Vermont. Today I decided to take a chance and rock them around Church Street in Burlington—and rock them I did!

When it comes to cropped denim, I find that it sometimes can cut your silhouette the wrong way. To prevent that, I like to wear some kind of heel to give you a boost. Up top, a tight crop top accentuates your feminine curves, adding some body-con contrast to the loose bottoms. A punch of plaid around the waist highlights your figure even further, in a fun punky/girly sort of way. A touch of makeup, a mod clutch, and a #girlboss attitude help steer the look away from “hobo chic” and towards “the secret sixth spice girl”.

Amber Montana at the I Heart UGG Nordstrom Launch Event

image

image

I Heart UGG is the new tween oriented brand of footwear, loungewear, accessories, and handbags created by the ever popular UGG Australia. Although this unique brand was created specifically for those ages 9-13, I Heart UGG has a collection of fun colors and stunning prints for all ages to fall in love with.

image

To celebrate their launch at Nordstrom, I Heart UGG organized a cross-country meet-and-greet tour with one of the collections biggest fans—Amber Montana, the 15 year old songstress and actress who is currently a lead on the Nickelodeon show, The Haunted Hathaways. The fourth of the many stops included a trip to the Westfield Garden State Plaza Nordstrom, right here in Paramus, where fans lined up over an hour before the event began to be among the first to catch a glimpse of the star. Plenty of other fun activities, such as a braid bar, a mini-makeover counter, an exclusive giveaway, and an eye-catching display of all the new designs, were available for the attendees to enjoy.

Just walking into the area, the energy was evident. With all the people chatting and the music pumping, even Amber herself gets excited before each event. “I love traveling. Getting to travel all the way across the country just to meet my fans is awesome… who needs sleep?” she laughs, fresh out of hair and makeup. Her outfit for the day consisted of a LUSH tribal print chiffon tank, a cozy cardigan and scarf, a rocking pair of ripped skinny jeans, and, of course, a pair adorable boots from I Heart UGG. This chic and casual look perfectly reflects her laid-back yet sweet style.

image

Being her own person is a huge part of why she’s such a fan of the brand. “I’m really comfortable with who I am. I think that I Heart UGG is great for young girls because there are so many different fun styles that can really bring out who you are. Depending on which shoe you pick, it can really bring out your personal style.”

Amber’s personal favorite? The I Heart Knotty boot, a cute compliment to any ensemble. Her love for the shoes is more than evident when she describes the perfect outfit for her perfect day. “I love to spend a day where I could just have fun doing a million different things… [I would wear] high-wasted shorts, band tees, jean jackets, and a snapback! Plus, if I was running around doing a bunch of stuff, I’d probably be wearing UGGs!”

Why not add a pair of I Heart UGGs to your own “perfect day” outfit, just in time for the back-to-school season? The collection is available at your local Nordstrom’s BP. Shoe department, as well as online at www.iheartugg.com. For more information about upcoming meet-and-greet stops, follow @Iheartugg on Twitter and Instagram for to-the-minute details.
