Fall Lipsticks with Nieman Marcus and ShopStyle...

Today I'm excited to share with you guys some gorgeous Bobbi Brown lipsticks from one of my favorite department stores, Nieman Marcus. I've been a loyal Bobbi Brown customer since I was in high school. For all of my formal dances, I would call weeks before the dance just to make an appointment to have my makeup done at the Bobbi Brown makeup counter, and now five years later I'm still just as obsessed with her lipsticks as I was back then! This lipstick trio is perfect for fall, and I'm loving the Soft Rose color I'm wearing in these pictures. It's a sophisticated, brick red color that is sure to go with a lot of my fall wardrobe!

Nieman Marcus is one of my favorite places to shop for luxury goods and amazing beauty products. See the widget below to see what's currently saved in my Nieman Marcus shopping cart.

Stripes and Leopard...

Dress: J.Crew Factory | Vest: old, similar and love this | Flats: J.Crew Factory | Sunnies: Ray-Ban 
| Watch: JORD c/o | Necklace: Kate Spade | Lips: MAC - Rebel

...the perfect fall combo! We all know that I'm a fan of pattern mixing, but these two seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly!  My striped dress is definitely a staple item in my "work wardrobe". It's a lightweight t-shirt material that you can wear all season long without getting too hot outside in the summer or hot inside during the winter. I'm also looooving fall lipsticks right now, and MAC's fall staple shade is definitely Rebel. I'm wearing it with a berry lip liner and it gives it a jewel toned look, but the lipstick alone is a bit darker but a pretty burgundy shade. I'm kinda loving this blue/grey/berry color combo right now! 

Is it just me or did the weekend fly by way too fast? I hosted a bachelorette party at my condo for a friend this weekend, so my lack of sleep probably has something to do with that! :) Have a great day! Thanks so much for reading.

Bow Tied...

Dress: Nordstrom (under $60!) | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Tory Burch, very similar under $70 here | Sunnies: Madewell | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Alex & Ani | Ring: Madewell 

Anything with a bow is a "win" in my opinion - bows add a nice touch of class and they also pull together an outfit and keep it clean. I love how the white bow is so striking against the black dress. I gravitate towards pieces that have a unique neckline or a collar (I blame the Catholic school uniforms in grade school!) and the bow on this dress brings all of the attention upwards towards my face. Its an easy dress to wear too - I feel like doing twirls in it, so girly! Ha!

I've been told that a bow-tie collar on women's clothing has another name... I won't even say it because I HATE the name (check out this article to see what I'm talking about). Personally, I think it should be called a "boss bow" because I think of myself (and my readers!) as total girl bosses. So from now on I'll just refer to it as that! :)

The Must-Have Cardigan...

Cardigan: J.Crew | Tank: Topshop | Skirt: old, similar here and love this solid navy version | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Tory Burch, similar under $60 | Sunnies: Madewell | Necklace: Kate Spade | Bracelets: J.Crew Factory, Alex & Ani | Ring: Madewell | Earrings: Nordstrom (only $10!) | Lipstick: MAC - Creme Cup + NARS Turkish Delight lipgloss

If you want to know what a staple cardigan looks like then this is it ladies!!!! I've had a Jackie cardigan from J.Crew in my closet ever since probably 6th grade and it's shocking/kinda sad how often I use mine. I think I own this cardigan in almost every color but they are that good and are so versatile, not to mention at a great price point. Not only is it a great cardigan for work outfits like today's outfit, but they're also adorable paired with jeans and a tank for casual outings with friends or for walking to class. I know long, chunky cardigans are very "in" for fall, but having a shorter, less slouchy option is always a good staple item and it will never go out of style! Plus it's easy to stash in your purse when on the go! For sizing, I got a medium. 

Happy Wednesday! We're halfway there...
