Wardrobe Wish List: Banana Republic Flannel Military Jacket

With fall here, it’s time to start adding new outerwear to your closet, and while many people argue that everyone needs a boyfriend blazer, I think everyone should be picking up this military jacket from Banana Republic.

Your Handy-Dandy Midterm Survival Guide!

The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, and you can wear cute scarves without looking like a jackass. We all know that that means… MIDTERMS! October is the best month of the year: apple cider, long weekends, and Halloween parties galore. Of course, the world is a cruel place, so amidst all the fun fall festivities, we also get crushed with the madness of midterms.

Pumpkins Are Good For More Than Just Lattes

It’s officially fall, and I’m going bananas over pumpkins right now. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin butter, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pie blizzards, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks; you name it I’m obsessing over it. Simply the aroma of pumpkin pie baking in the kitchen is enough to send me over the edge. There is a valid reason for that, however. Well, at least for men.

Weekly Wrap Up: It’s Time for Some Cider

Happy fall, everybody! After months of sun and sweat, it’s finally time to enjoy good TV and cozy autumnal fashionor not. The weather is perfect: it’s warm enough to work out outdoors, if you’re into that kind of thing, but cool enough to make getting close to a special someone—meaning someone who can take direction—even more appealing…

Dear Fall, I Love You

I freakin’ love fall. I actually don’t think I can communicate in coherent sentences how I feel about the season. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach just thinking of the crisp air, the cozy sweaters, whip cream melting into mug of hot chocolate….I think I might have just wet myself.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Hellooooo, Fall!

With Labor Day just around the corner, it's time to say goodbye to our white sundresses and helloooooo (nurse) to leather boots, college football and Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks. (Note: I said hello to those twice...on Monday.) Oh yeah, and also to long nights in the library, 40 pounds of textbooks and early classes. But let's ignore that stuff and celebrate the best season ever.

8 Under $20: Newport News

For a long time, I thought Newport News was a total "mom store" with terribly outdated and, well, momish stuff. Then, a few months ago I noticed some of their stuff in mags like Lucky, InStyle and Glamour and realized that they actually had some super cuteness going on.

What She Really Thinks Of… Guy Denim Trends

Now that we’re about ready to trade in our gladiator sandals for boots and our tank tops for, well, tank tops with sweaters, I tried to search the web for other denim trends as a follow-up to last week’s post on bleached jeans. What popped up instead was this:

Wardrobe Wish List: Nine West Skipper Boot

I'm really sad to see summer go (waaaah, goodbye beach days!), but I am kinda, sorta (ok, REALLY) excited to break out my new wardrobe for fall. I'm getting sick of my flip flops and summer dresses and really just want to wear some light sweaters and boots!

8 Under $20: Macy’s

So I know you're thinking: "How can you get anything for under $20 at a department store like Macy's?" I get it - sometimes I feel like I can't even afford to breathe the air in that store and I am doomed to spend my life lusting for everything on the over-stuffed racks. But I'm here to tell you it's not impossible.
