It occurred to lately while I was walking to the library listening to my iPod with a new pair of pink headphones that they can totally be a fashion accessory! There are some absolutely adorable options on the market these days, and in a world run by technology, it makes sense to have a few pairs on hand. Great for the gym, for a commute, or just for a casual stroll, a cute pair of headphones can make an okay outfit totally fabulous. Here are twelve pairs I love!

I think these beautiful turquoise headphones almost have a retro, vintage feel to them. These beauties are sold by belk and come in a few different colors!

As the temperature starts to decline, and things start to get a little wet, boots become not only a sensible but a stylish choice. While it’s fun to mix up boots and have different pairs, they can become a pricey investment. An easy way to spice up any pair of poots from Uggs to brown leather to wellies is boot socks! They are cute, give you plenty of coverage, and come in a variety of styles.

Below are twelve absolutely adorable boot socks that are affordable and can take you seamlessly from fall, to winter, to the rainy beginning of spring.

Hot cocoa, the crunch of newly fallen orange and red leaves, pumpkin patches and apple orchards, early sunsets and cozy fires. As a New Englander, I am spoiled by fall weather. Hey, we pay the prize with awful winters. But fall is just perfect. And what else do I adore in addition to those key autumn elements listed above? Sweaters!

A good quality sweater will last you forever and pairs with just about anything. I’m a sucker for the traditional, casual, comfy-cozy jeans + sweater combo. I also love wearing them with skirts and a thick pair of tights in black or a fun color or print. If I’m feeling particularly lazy, or maybe under the weather or lounging at home, sweaters are perfect with a pair of sweats or yoga pants. They actually add a kind of “dressed up” effect.

No matter how you style your sweater, though, there’s no denying they are great as we slip into increasingly cool weather. Here are 12 sweaters I just can’t live without.

I love this LOFT sweater. Unfortunately for me, its sizing is petite. But for the smaller girls out there, I think this would be perfect. Comes in a pretty blue, as well.

Aside from the whole otherwise-we’d-be-nude-thing, clothes are a wonderful expression of your personality. T-shirts are an easy and affordable way to convey who you are and what you’re about. It’s nice to be able to purchase them to benefit your favorite charity or music group. Others indicate a place you’ve been: “I <3 New York” or “I went to Paris and all I got was this lousy tee shirt!” You get the idea.

Tee shirts are also great because you can wear them year round. Layer a long-sleeved tee under a short-sleeved one for a cozy yet sporty look. Wear them under a sweater or cardigan and become preppy with an edge. Pair them with a skirt and tights. Slice off the sleeves and make a cool tank top for the warm, summery months. They’re great for working out in. Or just throw one on with a pair of jeans. The possibilities are endless.

Here are twelves printed tees that I love and I think you will too!

Anyone who tells you they enjoy working out is a big, fat liar. Emphasis on the fat. Staying active is an important part of maintaining good health, but it can be hard to work up the motivation to go for a jog or hit the elliptical. I find, though, that when I have something cute in which to work out, I’m more likely to suck it up and do it. Even if it’s donning a cute new sports bra just to run on the treadmill in my basement with no one around, it makes me feel good to have great clothes to work out in.

I’ve created a collection of twelve functional and stylish pieces that will hopefully inspire you to hit the gym. Or maybe just hit up the grocery store in your favorite pair of yoga pants. That is totally acceptable, too.

I love the sherbet palette of this Aeropostale sports bra.

There’s no denying that denim is classic and enduring. It represents America: hardworking, freedom, pulling oneself up by the bootstraps. And there’s nothing more pure and exciting than a great new pair of jeans.

In many climates, summer is usually way too hot for a dense pair of jeans. Denim shorts and skirts, sure. But our jeans inevitably are retired to the closet from June through August. That’s part of what makes fall so lovely. The weather becomes a bit cooler and we are able to grab that comfy, worn pair of Levis for a trip to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard.

Autumn also means new beginnings– a new school or work year, perhaps. And any excuse is a good excuse for a beautiful new pair of jeans.

I’ve created a collection of twelve amazing pairs of jeans. Some are classic, some are chic, some are totally acceptable for Casual Friday at work.

Scarves are one of my favorite accessories for two reasons:

  • They keep you toasty warm
  • They’re adorable and make any outfit comfy and stylish

As September begins its descent into chilly October, it’s time to stock up on scarves for the upcoming winter. If you live in a warmer climate, there are great scarves out there that are light, airy, and perfect for any season. Here are seven of my faves!

Leave your mama’s leggings and tights (or the even more dated “panty hose”) at the door. Leggings and tights make a great canvas for cool designs and unique personalization. Dress simply— think little black dress or neutral tones— and let your tights or leggings make the real statement. Here are seven great flavors for fall.

With the advent of summer’s end comes the beginning to a new school year, and back to school shopping can be pricy. Rather than spending loads on specific ensembles you can only wear once a month, invest in some individual classics to create new and exciting looks on a budget. I’ve compiled seven items that you can mix and match to cultivate a versatile, casual school wardrobe.
