Alyssa’s Fall Must-Haves

It’s finally beginning to get cooler in Southern California and I can’t express how excited I am to start layering and bringing out my comfy jackets! As much as I love Summer and it’s weather and cold treats, I can’t wait to cozy up in front of a fireplace bundled up in a jacket sippin’ on some hot cocoa. Just sayin’! Anyhow, these are my essentials that I notice I tend to lean more towards when coming up with an outfit idea.Image

1. The Statement Jacket: Everyone needs some sort of rendition of the leather jacket, which I think translates to a statement piece. For one, it keeps you warm, and two, you look fashionable without much effort wearing it!

2. Fall Headwear: Let’s face it, our noggins need some love too so the perfect way to keep that head of yours warm is by using some awesome headwear! Think turbans, beanies, wraps, you name it. I like to think of these as a bad hair day life saver, and because I really don’t like walking around with wind blowing through my hair messing it up even more, I just add one of these and I’m good to go.

3. The Combat Boot: One Word: AMAZING! I’ve coveted combat boots for ages and finally took the plunge and invested in a pair I knew I’d love forever. And since then, my world has changed. I love combat boots. They’re comfortable, edgy, and straight up bad-ass! These are definitely something you can even wear through all the seasons.

What are your Fall Must-Haves?

Current Indulgence: Glint & Gleam

I am obsessed. I have been stalking this website for quite some time and finally took the plunge and made a few purchases! Through the Shop Lately website, they have certain boutiques that cater to different tastes and types of accessories you’re interested in. The one I found that I am completely head over heels for is Glint & Gleam, an affordable very trendy boutique that has tons of styles of jewelry that cater to many likings.

I was first intrigued by their pieces from seeing people like Amy from Vagabond Youth and Sarah from Sarah Hawkinson show their pick ups from the site as well as different stylings with them.

I placed two orders on separate occassions and got them two days after I placed the order–which is amazing! Don’t you just love when your packages ship quickly?

Anyhow, here is a video of the things I picked up:

And here are some detailed shots of the pieces as well:

I am such a sucker for cute packaging as well as good quality and Glint & Gleam does just that: delivers great quality items in cute packaging–AND did I mention they’re affordable?! Two thumbs up!

What do you guys think? Is this something you guys are interested in? Did you see anything you liked from my haul or their site? Please share!

Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is in less than a month, and I thought it’d be fun if I’d put together a little collage of things I have kept in my shopping cart in multiple websites. It’s funny because when I look at this as a whole, I notice a few things: 1. HELLZ/BOTB 2. Brandy Melville and 3. I still want that army jacket with the pleather sleeves! 0_0 Makes sense, it’s all things I’ve been eyeing and loving from afar.

BOTB crop top* // NASTY crop top* // BRAWLIN’ tank top //
C’EST CHIC top // CORAL WRAP bracelet // LIPS OPEN BACK top //
SPLASH OF GRENADINE nailpolish by Essie* // LEOPARD LOAFERS from Target* //
ARMY JACKET from Urban Outfitters* // SCHOOL BAG // PENCIL POUCH

* indicates the items I really really really want.

I really love putting together little collages like this just because it puts everything in one place and gives a perspective of what my likes really are. It says it all — I love anything Hellz, loose fitting tops, and I can’t stop obsessing over the pleather sleeve jacket. Gimme gimme!

Do you guys have anything saved in your shopping carts you’d like to share? I know I can’t be the only one here.

XOXO Alyssa
