Hello, and happy Fall!! I had the opportunity to shoot with the amazing Katharine Andriotis again recently, and we decided to go to the Union Square farmers market. I don’t know about you, but the moment Fall arrives, all I can think about is pumpkins, hot apple cider, and the crisp Fall air!  The Farmer’s market in Union Square was buzzing with energy.  The fresh organic fruits and veggies were incredible, and I really love the spirit of the Autumn season.  Orange is my favorite Fall color, so I was really happy to receive this beautiful clutch courtesy of Asos, and my amazing friend Meg at RS. This Levi’s denim jacket is perfect for this weather, and you can literally throw it over everything. And, I am still wearing my Rag & Bone Newbury boots everywhere! They are insanely comfortable!  The outfit I wore is a perfect example of mixing high end items, with very low end items.     (I think my skirt and top were $15 dollars from Forever 21! See links below for details!)  I also love adding bright touches of color to a dark outfit, as I did here, with the neon turquoise belt, and bright orange clutch against dark navy and black. It’s a great way to wear bright colors in the Fall! My amazing boyfriend Chris came along for the shoot, and to pick some fresh veggies with me. 😉  How are you celebrating Fall?

Here are some quick shots as I was running around the city today. 😉 Stopped by Barneys to see what was out for Fall, and also wanted to check out their new windows….THEY ARE GORGEOUS. I also met up with my friends Debbie and Sheree.  Burgundy is a HUGE color this season, so I was happy to finally be able to wear my burgundy Balenciaga quilted jacket.  (This was another huge investment buy.) When I saw the color I had to get it! I am actually seeing this color EVERYWHERE now. I will be doing a blog post soon on the best deals this season on bags, shoes, jackets and clothing in this deep rich color. Stay tuned for that! 😉 xoxo Julie

I love colored jeans!  One of the things I am looking forward to this Fall is being able to rock the trend of bright colored, printed, and textured jeans! My love of interesting jeans actually dates back to my childhood.  I remember when I was about 11 years old, my older cousins would come visit me, and they were all wearing jeans with either designs, painted pictures, or cool embroidery on them.  I was so jealous! As I got older, the idea of “printed jeans” wasn’t really in style anymore…….so plain jeans it was for me. 🙁  But now that the trend is back, and improved in my opinion, I am all over it!  It’s an easy way to elevate your outfit, and update your look!  We saw this trend being worn earlier this Spring and Summer, in the form of neon jeans, and tons of jeans with either flowers or warm weather designs on them.  But, for this Fall, the trend is jeans in more jewel toned colors, jeans with deep embroidery, (think your grandma’s drapes), and of course, jeans printed with tons of patterns. ( I recently scored a bunch of awesome jeans at Zara, stay tuned for future blog posts with those)  But yesterday, I kept it simple with my new favorite bright red jeans, on sale from SHOPBOP!  (Buy them HERE!!! ….and similar red jeans HERE, and HERE)  I kept the rest of my outfit black to offset the red.  My Celine Nano is my favorite cross body bag.  It’s great when you are on the go! (Similar cross body bags HERE, and HERE)  Oh, and my Rag & Bone Newbury boots are the best investment purchase I ever made! Seriously, they are the most comfortable ankle boots on the planet! Just read the reviews HERE to see that I  am not kidding!  What are you most looking forward to this Fall?
