Falling for layers

Fall is the time for layers because it's always freezing in the morning and warm in the afternoon.  RVA has been having some amazing weather!  I am loving fall right now because I can wear my fuzzy cardigans and sweaters and I can still wear crop tops and shorts.  Fall is seriously the best season ever!  And here are some of my favorite fall combos!

Crop top, Shorts, and A Collared blouse
This is the perfect combo for you if it's still a little warm outside.
For some added warmth, you can always add tights (my favorite are black tights)! 
And you can also switch out the collared shirt for a fuzzy cardigan or sweater.
If it's cold, throw off your flats and slip your feet in to your favorite boots.

Stripes, Denim, and Cozy Sweaters
In my opinion, this is the perfect combo for those cold mornings and warm afternoons.
I'm pretty sure I'm wearing this striped shirt to death, but I love it!
I love playing with different stripe sizes, so I paired my shirt with a scarf.
For some warmth, I layered this outfit with a denim shirt and a cardigan.

This combo is great with leggings, black, blue, or burgundy skinny jeans!
And of course, you can't forget the boots!

What do you like to wear in the fall?

How to Mix Metals (Necklace edition)

It has always been a fashion faux pas to mix gold and silver.  But I'm here to tell you it can be done elegantly and tastefully with a few tips and tricks to always keep in mind when mixing metals.

First, shape and size is a very important factor in mixing metals.
Second, the style and texture of the necklaces/bracelet/rings are also important to keep in mind.
Third, remember to have fun and express your style, you'll be surprised how many compliments you'll get!

How I mix metals

I love to layer delicate gold and silver necklaces together. 
An easy way to mix metals is to start off light.  
These dainty and elegant necklaces compliment each other beautifully.

Ready to take it to the next level?  
Mixing metals in statement necklaces.
I like to mix larger statement necklaces with smaller less flashy necklaces.
Bronze or Antique gold necklaces are great ways to mix gold and silver tone necklaces.
