In the fall you have to love a good flannel moment. Flannels are a great way to add fall colors to your fit, layer clothes, and add warmth. The flannels pictures are from Urban Outfitter's but you can pretty much thrift at any second hand store or even your parent's closet!

Style Tips

Cozy Can be Cute

Sweats, lounge shorts, and t-shirts can be just as cute as jeans and a cute top. It’s all about how you put together the outfit. Biker shorts & a band tee with some sneakers are 10x cozier than tight jeans & a tight shirt & are just as cute! Pair grey sweatpants with a white or colored tank top, a cardigan or jean jacket, with sandals or sneakers & you have a super cute outfit that doubles as loungewear. There are always ways to dress up your lounge sweats or cozy t-shirts to make it so they double as casual wear.

Add Jewelery to Simple Outfits

Feel like your outfit is a little plain? Throw on a pair of leopard earrings with that grout fit, wear some cool rings, add a few necklaces, etc… Having a plain outfit allows you room to show off the cool jewelry you have that may not be able to be worn with the patterned clothing you wear other times. Like they say, the devil is in the details, & in this instance the devil = cute ass style.

Staple #1: White Sneakers

A pair of white sneakers goes with every kind of outfit. Need to make a dressy outfit more casual? Add white sneakers. Want to wear your cozy sweats & PJ top? Add white sneakers to dress it up just a little. T-shirt dress with no pants? WHITE SNEAKERS. Seriously, if you don’t have a pair of white sneakers, go get yourself a pair, you won’t regret it.

Staple #2: Jean Jacket

Denim is something that never goes out of style, making it a staple to have in your collection of clothes. Jean jackets are just as versatile as white sneakers, if not more. They are perfect for outfits in every season, they go with patterned clothes, plain clothes, & textured clothes. You can distress them, patch them, or acid wash them. They accent lazy, dressy, or oversized clothes in such a cute way. Not to mention if you wear one out enough or buy a thrifted one they are so cozy!

Hats, Bandanas, Headbands

Adding accessories gives you a chance to express your own unique style. Adding a flat brimmed hat with jeans & pumps can add a boho vibe, while adding a ball cap to sweats & a tank adds a sporty vibe. Adding a headband or bandana can double as a fashion statement as well as be functional to your hairstyle, or even keep your hair out of your face on a windy day so it doesn’t stick to your lipgloss. There are countless ways to wear hats, bandanas, & headbands, but they all add a little something to a cute fit.

Layers

Adding layers to an outfit can make it go from a 6 to a 10 with one piece. In the fall adding a turtle neck under a an overall dress adds warmth & style. In the summer a plain white dropped tee under a spaghetti strap sundress can protect your shoulders from getting sunburnt at the farmers market while making you look like a total fashionista. Another fun way to add some style to your out fit is by throwing some fishnet tights under a pair of ripped jeans. Throw on a band tee & you have a fun hipster outfit to wear out!

Adidas Ball Cap

This summer I have been obsessed with wearing ball caps. They are such an easy way to add a sporty vibe to any outfit & not have to worry about anyone seeing your hair if you don't fee like styling it some days. You can buy name brand baseball hats through the company or my advice would be to hit up your local TJ MAXX to find them for $8-15.

Knotted Head Band

Headbands are a fun way to accessorize & switch up a hairstyle. Personally I love them for holding my bangs back if the weather is a little too hot for them to be warming up my forehead.

Lawrence, KS

S U P P O R T   L O C A L   B I Z

The Striped Cow is one of my personal favorite boutiques in Lawrence. Here you can find reasonably priced one of a kind rings & other jewelry, adorable knick knacks, wonderful smelling perfumes, accessories, fun socks, and much more. Aside from the awesome inventory, the staff here are always extremely kind & you are guaranteed to have a good conversation with whoever is there that day.

You can’t find locally owned thrift store that tops Arizona Trading Co. There are so many modern & vintage finds at such a reasonable price here. I truly love how unique the clothes I can find here are, & sometimes have to double check the price because it’s just that good. Aside from being an awesome thrift spot, the infamous dog, Friday, is sure to brighten you day. When I go I like to bring my dog Ollie with me & the two of them get to have some fun together!
