Ok, brace yourself for this new blog I found! It’s called Lookbook Cookbook. they followed me on twitter, and I’m glad I looked at their account. Not only is it gluten free, dairy free AND sou free, but the photography features good looking people in good looking clothes. And all the recipes are things I’ve never heard of. They say in their about that they’re never boring. That puts them immediately on my blogs to read list. Check ’em out! (Images via Lookbook Cookbook).

L.L. Bean Boyfriend Tumblr

My friend Eva told me about the website, the L.L. Bean Boyfriend Tumblr. It’s this girl who captions photos of L.L. Bean male models. We both have bean boots, and love the idea of an L.L. Bean man. If you don’t know what the looks like, check out this tumblr!!

Camp Worthy Wardrobe

It’s getting colder and colder, and my layers keep getting thicker and thicker. I love fall and the winter for that exact reason. Layering is my favorite thing to do! Especially when you mix the dressy and the casual, the feminine and the masculine. I LOVE menswear inspired clothes, and fall is the perfect time to break them out. Something about it makes me think of going to camp…of which I have never been. I made a little collage to inspire more campy fall outfits. [There’s more to follow!]

4. I just really love her look. Especially her bangs!
5. Adirondack barn coat.

Sun Inspired

Do you know who the Two Door Cinema Club is? They’re a great band, and you should check them out if you like rock or alternative music. I like their new song “Sun”, and love the music video for it. Very retro inspired. The dancer’s choreography at the beginning is great. And so are their clothes! I found some look alike pieces to the one’s they wear in the video, and other pieces that look as if they would fit right in.

Denim buttondown, brown sweater, leather jacket, marina pullover, brown shoes, cutoff shorts, teal leggings, white tennis shoes, headband, grey t-shirt, grey trousers, pink shorts, blue heels, yellow espadrilles.

Fall Wishlist

20120912-194634.jpg

I have a seemingly never ending note on my phone with everything I want. Call me greedy, but there are just so many good things out their to buy. Although the note is endless, my money supply is not. (my mother). Nonetheless, some of the things I want for it nicely with fall, so maybe I’ll be able to finagle the bagel a little and buy some!

1. Norah Jones’ new CD. Any cd of hers would be nice. I’m really liking her lately.
2.NYX xtreme lip creme in nude peach fuzz. One of my favorite beauty gurus wears it, (clothesencounters) and I’m obsessed.
3. Paper airplane earrings from etsy. Quirky and unexpected.
4. A new watch! I lost my other one, which was getting a little beat up anyway, so any of the ones in the picture will do.
5. A waffle mousepad from spotted moth.
6. A good pair of oxfords.
7. To e able to draw like this. My art class is highly competitive, and sadly I feel not ago great about my art. But I’m determined to get better!
8. Leather + skirt pairing.

Is there anything in specific for fall that your wishing for. Also, how early is too early to start a Christmas wishlist? Thoughts?

3 Never Fail Fall Combinations

Fall is my favorite time of the year to wake up, because it means that I can pick out some cozy outfit to slip on. But for some it might be a little harder, because they just don’t know what to wear. So if you need help in the closet department, or you woke up late, then keep reading for three never fail outfits.

1. Button down + a skirt
Classic and easy to where. A button down is a staple for any closet. I got this one from gap, and this skirt is from forever21. For jewelry I balanced out the polka dots with two round necklaces and round earrings, all from forever2. 20120902-133628.jpg20120902-133633.jpg

For a dressed down version, this blue chambray top and black and white patterned skirt is cute too. The shirt is from marshalls, skirt, and the adorable babushka necklace are both from forever21. 20120902-134202.jpg

2. Cardigan + graphic tee
A graphic tee can sometimes look a little too punky or juvenile. By adding a cardigan, it makes it grown up and feminine. The dressed up version of this look includes a graphic tank from H&M, cardigan from gap, the previous black and white patterned skirt, some hand me down rings, and spike square earrings from Forever21.

The dressed down version is Perfect for school. All the items are from gap, and the bracelets are made by me and a friend.

3. Stripes + Costume Jewelry
Wearing simple patterns such as stripes or just simple colors, like black and white and adding big jewelry can instantly make it look chic. The dressed up version has a short from Marshall’s, the previous black and white printed skirt, and earrings from Forever21.
