Fall into Navy Blue

Shades of blue are among the coolest hues this fall. I'm especially drawn to navy because of its timeless, season-less appeal. Fall into navy blue with these essentials.

Fringe Frenzy

Fringe has made such a huge comeback this fall that it's causing a frenzy. Fall's fringe is fresh and modern. Altuzarra's Spring and Fall 2014 collections featured fringe accents in such refined looks that I instantly became of fan of fringe. I was thrilled, then, to see the Altuzarra for Target collection incorporate fringe in two sophisticated scarvesthe sheer swiss dot scarf and the embroidered scarf. I found the swiss dot scarf on clearance recently for just $8 (orig. $29.99).

In today's look, my Altuzarra for Target fringe scarf is the perfect finishing touch to a combination of knits.

Splurge vs Steal: Textured Crop Sweater

I added the Madewell textured crop sweatshirt to my want list the moment I saw it. It's a slightly cropped sweater with a beautiful nubby texture. I'd surely buy one of these sweaters after a first-round price cut. That's if the equally fabulous and lower-priced textured crop sweater at Target doesn't take my money first. Both sweaters face off below.

A Black and Gold Combo

There's always one piece of jewelry among the new releases at J.Crew that I just have to have. This time around, it's the J.Crew metal medallion necklace. I didn't stand a chance trying to resist this beauty. It's an Art Deco-inspired piece that combines mixed metal geometric shapes, sparkling crystals, and a black leather twisted cord. The necklace is currently 25% off (plus an additional 15% off for educators and students as always) too. In today's post, this new necklace is the perfect accent for this black and gold ensemble.
