Shopping for jewelry is fun to begin with and then when you know that part of your purchase goes towards a great cause, makes it even more enjoyable. That is why I’m excited to partner with Quinn Foster Designs to share with you what all they have to offer. Quinn Foster Designs believes in “paying our good fortunes forward.” They share the same passion their customers do of giving back to the community and making a difference. At the end of your shopping experience, you have the opportunity to choose from 8 philanthropic partners to donate 5% of your purchase to, as well as receiving 5% off your order. What a great way to give back! What I also love about this brand is that their jewelry is super affordable and offers a wide variety of pieces, making it perfect for all ages, styles, and personalities.

I love turtlenecks this season as well as statement jewelry, so I thought why not wear the two together!  One of my two pieces from Quinn Foster Designs that I am wearing is the beautiful gold statement necklace. It works perfectly in the folds of my turtleneck and lays just around the collar bone, bringing shine to the look. My other piece that I am wearing is the simple, yet striking tortoise bracelet. Once I received it, I haven’t stopped wearing it! It’s simple design, and soft color makes it a perfect bracelet to wear casually or dressed up. Jewelry in the colder weather can sometimes go unseen with all your layers and bulkier fabrics, so find pieces that act as the outer layer so you can show them off. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to wear your jewelry differently.

Warm up with Merlot

It has finally started to drop in temperature, and I was excited to rock this merlot colored coat, from Shein that I bought over the summer. I love the trend this fall of merlot colored clothing for many reasons. 1) It matches all the beautiful fall leaves 2)Merlot gives your outfit a bold and sassy kick, just like the vino 3) It looks good in all shapes and styles, purses, coats, pants, scarves you name it. Plus I love wine :). I bought the coat as a “one size,” this can be awesome for online shopping, but can also get tricky. It makes it very easy to shop online because you don’t have to stress about figuring out your size, but it can get tricky because “one size” pieces aren’t tailored for a particular body type so are often baggy. Make sure to pair your “one size” coats with pieces that are more slimming, to help balance out your look. When you are putting an outfit together and need help balancing it out, go for black, it is one of the most slimming colors and will help give you shape.

Palazzo

From skinny jeans to these loose fitting “palazzo” pants, style is alway changing, and that is why I love it. Skinny jeans will always be in my wardrobe, but I have added a couple of palazzo pants this autumn. Although they are loose, when worn with heels and balanced out with a more fitted top, they can have a slimming effect. Shops are selling them in all different kinds of patterns and colors. I’d suggest finding a pattern that matches best with your wardrobe or going for a good old black pair. Now I’m on the shorter side, about 5’4, so I love pieces that give me a little height and make my legs look longer. When I paired these pants with about a 1 1/2 inch heel, it elongated my legs and gave the outfit a bit more of a flare. Confidence is key, wear clothing and trendy pieces with confidence and everyone will be saying “wow you can pull those off!” I’m a true believer that everyone can look stylish as long as they remember to wear clothing that fits your body type, are comfortable, and strut around like you are a million bucks.
