Monday Must-Haves: London Look

Hello my beautiful readers! Welcome back to Monday Must-Haves! As you may have noticed, I have been quite absent from the blogging world as of late. Thankfully, I have something amazing to show for it: my new Etsy store, Rompadomp! Currently featuring fall-themed greeting cards and handmade jewelry, my little shop is constantly adding new inventory! And because I love my readers so much, I’m offering you guys a special coupon code for 30% off! Just enter BLOG30 during checkout :)
 
And now for my fashion picks! It was recently joked that I should moved to London with my boyfriend and soak up some international culture while I’m still free to roam as I please. While the suggestion wasn’t entirely serious, I have been absolutely loving London-inspired fashion! Check out some of my favorite finds:

While I love each of these pieces individually, they make a fab looking outfit! I couldn’t help but feature the Butter London “Wellies” that I talked about briefly in my nail polish of the month post as well, such a unique chartreuse! Hope to be back and posting on a more regular basis as before! xoxo

Monday Must-Haves: Cute and Comfy

Welcome back to Monday Must-Haves! Let’s get comfy — when the temperature starts to drop, it’s time to break out your cold weather clothes. Fall means covering up with layers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish. Try adding subtle textures to your outfit, such as overlapping fabrics and embellishments like buttons and ruching. Here’s a few things I’m loving this week:Monday Must-Haves: Cute and Comfy
How amazing is that sweater? So cute and easy to style, whether you’re meeting up with a girlfriend for coffee or are heading out to conquer a corn maze. I am seriously considering splurging on it…
As for jewelry, I like to stick to things that lie closer to my body during the fall months, which keeps them warm. Nothing annoys me more than coming inside after walking in from my car and having freezing cold dangly earrings assault my naked neck. It’s time to shop for some fun new stud earrings!

Monday Must-Haves: Falling into Simplicity

Welcome back to Monday Must-Haves! If you’re like me, you’ve definitely been putting some thought into your new fall/winter wardrobe. I love classics with a twist that I can continue to wear in seasons and years to come. Check out some of my favorites for this week that are giving me inspiration for my fall wardrobe:Monday Must-Haves: Falling into Simplicity
Gold accessories are a must for fall and lend a warm glow to any skin tone. Also, another one of my favorite makeup look this season is wine-colored lips — I love, love love them! The strong color can appear a little intimidating for people who tend to shy away from lip color, so I would recommend starting with a light lip stain first, like Revlon Color Stay Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm in Twilight. That’s what I’ve been wearing almost daily since the start of September, and I’m ready to graduate to a lip tar, which is more pigmented and longer lasting. Check out OCC Lip Tar in Vintage for a stronger look and embrace your inner fall goddess!

Syria-s Business

Whether or not you like President Obama, you have to concede that he is a pretty dapper dude. Tonight he addressed the nation in a classic blue suit and powder blue tie. Take a hint from our president and stick to the basics for your next work-related event and you’re sure to look pulled together!Syria-s Business

What do you think of this take on the classic navy suit? Would you wear this to a work meeting, or job interview?
