October Favorites

Even in sunny LA, fall is in the air! Temps are crisp and clouds are lingering – the perfect environment to make a pot of tea, and cozy in with the latest episode of Glee. Fall is also my favorite time of year for fashion – putting away the white jeans and sun faded tanks, in favor of scarves, sweaters, and boots. This October, a few pieces have found themselves a loving home as staples in my fall wardrobe. Check them out!

J. Crew Pixie Pant – By far my biggest obsession of late, these fab pants have taken the place of my jeans as the go to bottoms for this season. They look amazing with a feminine sweater and black flats – very Audrey!

American Apparel Circle Scarf – I have Rachel to thank for bringing the circle scarf into my life. I had seen them in the store before, but never really gave them a thought until I heard that they could be worn a billion different ways, from dress to hood to capelet (my favorite). There’s even a tutorial video that shows all the different ways to wear it! After debating between all the dark smokey colors, I ended up with the black Tie Dye Version. What color would you choose?

MAC Dry Martini – My obsession with nail colors usually comes into full swing with the change of the seasons. I love every fall shade there is, especially the tinted almost-blacks, like MAC’s glittery purple black Baby Goth Girl and darkest green Beyond Jealous. But my shade du jour is Dry Martini. I just can’t get enough of this olive green. It’s the perfect fall color on any skin tone, and just begs to serve as the standout accessory against the actual Dirty Bird in your hand (Dirty Bird – a dirty Grey Goose martini – the bigger the glass and thinner the crystal, the better).

The list goes on and on. Stay tuned for plenty more covetable fall favorites to come!

  1. I have a similar pair of pants from J. Crew that I wear constantly (well, not at the moment since it is FREEZING in WI)! And I also have the AA circle scarf – I got it last spring in chicago and love, love, love it. I got the dark heather grey. It is so cozy. I haven't yet tried all the other ways to wear it …

    MUST get that scarf. And maybe the pants too…I always try to get that full-scarf look and this thing appears to magically do it for you! Maybe I'll swing by AA on my way home from work tomorrow!-Katie

    LOVE the circle scarf! I also wear it at the office when I'm cold as like a shawl – just put your arms throw the openings and spread across back/shoulders. Adorb!Also, am totally coveting Dry Martini! Might need to make a stop at MAC tomorrow…
