Layered Layers

My first favorite thing about fall fashion is boots, but my second favorite is layers. There is nothing like being cozy and warm under layers in early morning fall weather. Even though these pics make it look like I was out in heat, the bright sun was an illusion to the 50 degree weather.
This sweater and plaid combo kept me warm as I walked to my 9 a.m. class this week. While everyone was complaining about the cold air, I was perfectly comfortable. The socks under my boots also added some extra warm while showing off my love of layers.

What I'm Wearing:
Sweater: JCP (a.n.a)
Plaid Top: JCP (Arizona)
Jeans: Forever 21
Knee-High Socks: Forever 21
Boots: Madden Girl
Watch: JCP (Relic)

Polished Up Tuesday: Sephora's Stormy Pink

I'm bringing you an older Spehora color today in the shade Stormy Pink. I purchased this polish years ago at a Sephora store. Unfortunately I don't think they make this shade anymore (sorry, ladies). But  I had to show off  this gorgeous cranberry-colored polish that is perfect for fall. The camera picked up the color a little lighter than it truly is. Imagine the shade above about two shades deeper.
The application is incredibly smooth and is completely opaque in two coats. Like most Sephora polishes it has amazing staying power.

First Day of Fall

I'm so excited today is the first day of fall! Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year. The air will soon begin to crisp and I'll get to spend my days in boots and corduroy. My friends and I will  cuddle beneath a blanket to watch football games. I'll watch the mountains turn from green to a blanket of rich orange, yellow and red. Not to mention my wedding anniversary is also in the fall (only about a month away from celebrating three years with the love of my life).
I also love the smells that come with fall. As I am typing this the scent of a pumpkin spice candle is filling my apartment.
My outfit is my welcome to my favorite season. I'm wearing one of my favorite pairs of boots (because, let's face it, they're all my favorite). These boots in particular I saved from a nail polish fiasco so I'm a little overprotective of them. My blazer is the perfect color for fall and thick enough to keep me warm when the temperatures start to drop.  I'm also wearing one of my favorite necklaces from Forever 21. It's a typewriter! :)
What I'm Wearing:
Blazer: Forever 21
Tank: Forever 21
Jeans: JCP (St. John's Bay)
Boots: JCP (a.n.a.)
Necklace: Forever 21
Earrings: JCP (Decree)
Sunglasses: NY and Co.

Polished Up Tuesday: OPI's Don't Pretzel My Buttons

The air is beginning to turn more crisp here in the mountains and the feel of fall is all around. Today I'm donning one of my favorite neutral shades from OPI's new Germany collection. This creamy beige color is called Don't Pretzel My Buttons. It has a very smooth application and is a great neutral shade for fall. I did have a small problem with bubbling on two of my nails.
This is my first time wearing a color from this particular line so I'll let you know how it does in terms of longevity. Most of OPI's polishes have about a 3-4 day staying power. It took two coats to achieve the look above.

Summer to Fall

I really wanted to do a proper fashion post for you all this week, but unfortunately a cold has decided to pay me a visit. Since I'm feeling a bit under the weather (with a red nose as well) I decided to bring you another Polyvore blog of what my husband likes to call my paperdoll creations.
So fall is just around the corner (yay! my favorite time of year!) and I love looking at videos and magazines for inspiration on how I can transition my summer wardrobe into the cooler temperatures. Below are looks I created on to show how I plan to shift into the fall season. I can't wait to kick up some leaves with my boots! :)

Polished Up Tuesday: Sephora's Jealous

I'm so excited for fall, but I wanted to get in one more bright and fun summer color before I switch over to my more neutral and autumn-inspired shades. This mini-bottle in the color Jealous from Sephora's line is the perfect little pop of color to say farewell to summer.
The deep pink coral shade took two coats to achieve this look. The first coat was almost enough but wasn't as opaque as I like. The color has a very smooth application. The most amazing thing about this mini bottle is the size of the brush. It has a full brush that reminds me of the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure brushes. It makes applying the polish quick and easy.

Wear it White

It's almost Labor Day so I'm going to wear my white as much as I can. This comfy white cotton dress was a steal on the clearance rack at New York & Co. I haven't had too many opportunities to wear it this season, but I'll be taking a cruise in January so I'm sure I'll bring it out again to enjoy that one week of warm weather away from the snow.
Hope you all enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Stay safe and have fun :)

What I'm Wearing: 
Dress: NY&Co.
Cardigan: Victoria's Secret
Shoes: JCP
Necklace and Bracelet: NY&Co.
