In honor of one of my favorite days of the year, I’ve picked a few fun, sparkly pieces to help you ring in 2017 in style.

What I’m Loving: The Perfect Sweater

If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy a piece of clothing unless it’s juuuuust right. This applies to everything from shirts, dresses, pants, shoes, etc.

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cable knit sweater and I finally found it. I popped into Urban Outfitters to do a return and couldn’t resist doing a little shopping. While browsing the store, I came across the most perfect sweater and decided I had to have it.

It’s a beautiful, cozy cable knit sweater that’s not too heavy, not too fitted and long enough for a tall girl like me. The sweater also has adorable elbow patches and comes in quite a few colors. Plus, it’s currently on sale so snag one while you can!

Five Scarves You Need Right Now

It’s no secret that I’m ready for cooler weather to arrive. I don’t know if it’s because football season is here or the fact that I’m tired of stepping outside for two minutes and ending up drenched in sweat, but I can’t wait for the crisp days of fall. Down south it’s still pretty steamy, but I have hope that the heat will soon subside and I’ll be able to break out my favorite fall accessory: the scarf.

Although I’ve never met a scarf I didn’t like, I managed to put together a list of the top five scarves you need in your wardrobe. Read on more for more!

1. Plaid Scarf

You can’t talk about scarves without mentioning classic plaid. There’s something about a crisp checked pattern that makes me think of the holidays and snowy winter weather.

2. Leopard Scarf

I realize that not everyone has an affinity for leopard but hear me out. The right leopard print scarf can take a basic outfit from simple to sophisticated and is an unexpected neutral.

3. Neutral Scarf

Speaking of neutrals, you can’t have a scarf collection without at least one black, grey or beige piece. It’s the perfect thing to grab when you don’t have time to think and need to get out the door.

4. Infinity Scarf

When it comes to easy, breezy accessories, it doesn’t get much better than the infinity scarf. I love traveling with this type of scarf because they’re so easy to toss on and they add an extra dash of style to any outfit.

5. Blanket Scarf

Another travel scarf option is the blanket scarf. It can be worn as a warm and cozy scarf but also doubles as a blanket on those chilly plane rides.

What I’m Loving: Ankle Booties

While the weather can’t seem to decide what season it is, I’m definitely ready for the crisper, cooler temperatures of fall. One reason I’m excited for the mercury to drop is so that I can wear cozy fall fashions: cardigans, scarves, and–the point of this post–boots.

I’m currently obsessed with ankle booties and have been wearing them nonstop. Ankle booties are a great staple to have and they make dressing for transitional weather a snap. Whether worn with jeans, dresses, or shorts, ankle booties add a bit of fall to any outfit.

Read on to see a few of my favorite ankle bootie looks!

P.S. I’m currently obsessed with these ankle booties and these–they’re so comfortable and extremely affordable!

What I’m Loving: Rompers

Although rompers have been around for a while, I never fully embraced the trend until recently. I’m a huge fan of pieces you can just throw on quickly and run out the door, so it’s no surprise that I’ve finally taken to wearing rompers. Below are a few of the rompers I’ve been eyeing lately. Keep in mind that you may have to size up in order to achieve that effortless, laid back vibe…or if you’re tall like I am! 16751489

Splurge vs Steal: Rebecca Minkoff

I don’t know if it’s the pollen going to my head or the fact that festival season is upon us, but lately I’ve been allllll about finding a fringe crossbody bag.

I’ve been eyeing the Finn crossbody from Rebecca Minkoff for a while now and while it’s gorgeous, I can’t quite bring myself to drop the cash on such a trendy item.

As I was cruising Target’s website looking for a fringey alternative, I stumbled across a great dupe of my coveted bag.

Available in black and cognac, the Target version is strikingly similar to the more expensive Minkoff. While the strap isn’t removable and, okay, maybe the fringe isn’t as awesomely fringey as the Finn, I think it’s a great alternative for those of us wanting to experiment a little bit.

Which one do you prefer?
