When sitting in a college classroom, most people look to their classmates for fashion inspiration. You see a cute bag across the way, a nice pair of boots on your neighbor next to you, but rarely do you look at the person at the very front of the room. We’re talking about the older professor in the stereotypical tweed jacket with the suede elbow patches. We’re taking a cue from that academic style, and imparting it into some of our favorite fall fashions in the way of elbow patches! Elbow patches instantly add a little something to an otherwise typical sweater or cardigan.
Fall may be hunting season, but the only hunting we’re doing is finding as many inspiring decor ideas involving our favorite fauns. Whether you’re into real taxidermy, or the ever-popular deer silhouette, this trend is one that works for many different room styles. It adds a taste of the great outdoors to your decor, but can easily work in a modern room. Or you can fully commit, and make your place as rustic as a hunting lodge. The deer can also work really well in both feminine and masculine spaces. Dress it up in gold and pink, or leave it unbleached for authenticity.
Do you love deer decor? How would you integrate it into your space?
When it comes to decorating, mirrors are the ultimate element to add impact to a space.

They reflect your other lights, automatically adding brightness!Basic mirrors are easy to upgrade with elements like reclaimed wood, or even just a can of spray paint!

What better way to represent the season than by making your entryway as autumnal as possible? Check out these beautiful decor setups that are perfect for the start of the season!

Tomorrow the stars and stripes will be out for Independence Day! Lately we’ve even been seeing a lot of outfits that aren’t just inspired by the American colors, but feature the American flag itself. We love this patriotic pattern, and we would wear it even if it wasn’t July 4th! Here are a few of our favorite ways to rock America’s colors, and look super stylish while doing it.
For those chilly nights, we love a slouchy American flag sweater. Combined with turquoise elements and blue denim shorts, this outfit screams Americana!
Why just focus on one patriotic piece when you can rock an entire flag-inspired ensemble?
If you like a more understated approach, an infinity scarf paired with white basics is a great way to go.
Although lacking red, this American flag tank is still true blue and features a more abstract design.

As of late, we’ve been seeing a lot of beautiful statement stud earrings. And why not? They’re dainty, small, and can be worn without being too distracting. While we’re huge fans of these tiny ear gems, we’d also like to give a shout out to their longer and more flashy counterparts. The beautiful earrings below are some of our favorite dangling “drop” earrings. We love these types of earrings because not only do they provide extra bling, but they also seem to dance when you move, a feature that is found in almost no other jewelry!
What are your favorite types of earrings? If you prefer the stud, would you be willing to give the drops a try?
