I don’t know why I’ve never purchased a bomber jacket before, but I found this one on sale from Topshop and just had to have it! Compared to other bombers, it’s a bit longer and has a more relaxed fit. Plus, the blush color is so perfect. I decided to dress up the jacket a tiny bit by pairing it with a white tee (my favorite white tee btw, it’s SO soft and affordable), ankle strap heels, gray skinny jeans with a raw uneven hem, and a gray mini bag c/o Violet Ray. The bomber jacket is almost sold out so I’ve listed similar styles!

I am a huge fan of mixing tailored pieces with more casual pieces. A perfect example of this is the classic blazer, tee, and jeans combo. Today, I’m taking these white culottes and pairing with an oversized sweater (that I wore off the shoulder) and added a pair of ankle strap heels to keep the outfit from completely overwhelming my frame. I kept the accessories minimal with silver jewelry and my mini Heileven bag with a striped scarf tied on for added interest.

With fall quickly approaching, I find myself getting more and more excited about the cooler weather, the pumpkin spice lattes (so cliche, I know), and especially fall fashion. Nothing excites me more than boots, light layers, and fall colors!

Today’s outfit is one way you can transition your summer top into the next season. This lacey white top with flounce sleeves is perfect for summer, and can be paired with jean shorts or tucked into your favorite blue or black denim. I’m also wearing these gorgeous aubergine colored sandals that are great for both summer and fall. Simply throw on a trench when it gets chilly at night for an effortlessly chic fall look!

These items are selling fast so I will try my best to list similar pieces as always!

Being a woman can be so fabulous with the clothes, shoes, makeup, bags, etc., but it’s not all glitz and glam. That’s right –  I’m talking about our periods, ladies. I’m sure like most women out there, I dread that time of the month when I look and feel bloated, eat the worst of the worst junk food, and cry for absolutely no reason at all.

Luckily we at least have what seems like an endless aisle of period products to choose from, and there really is something for everyone. Can you imagine only having limited access to those products? It’s a horrid thought, right? Well, that’s actually a reality to many of the 3.5 million homeless Americans who, each year, have limited access and few places to turn for feminine products. That’s why when Holly Sanchez tweeted about this very topic, DoSomething.org and U by Kotex teamed up with Holly to create the Power to the Period drive and encourage others to buy and donate extra period products to homeless shelters.

If you’re interested in joining the Period Project, here are some ways you can get involved:

  • Start a Power to the Period donation drive in your school or community
  • Donate new, unopened boxes of period products to a drive in your area until Friday, September 30, 2016.
  • Visit UbyKotex.com, DoSomething.org/Period or text PERIOD to 38383 for more info on getting involved.
  • Join the online conversation with #PeriodProjects

*Please only donate unopened packages of period products, as opposed to individually wrapped items to ensure hygiene and intact instructions on the box.

Outfit Details:

I love the look of a sweater over a button up, but dislike the bulk and how uncomfortable it is, which is why I just about jumped for joy when I saw this sweater. This ribbed sweater has a woven shirttail, so you get the chic layered look without any of the bulk! Also, this is my first time purchasing jeans from Topshop and I am completely hooked! They’re surprisingly really comfortable to wear and hug your curves in all the right places. I also love that they have shorter hems for petites, so these ankle length jeans are actually ankle length 🙂
