Sweater weather is finally here, and cozy chic is my Fall uniform! I’m sharing my staples for easy pieces for looking chic, while being comfy and practical, whether you’re a busy mom, or heading to the office. Each item is under $100, excluding the necklace, which is such a great splurge to make a statement! The black denim is the most comfortable pair of denim I have ever owned, with high quality fabric and under $50! Slip on mules polish off any look, and fur details add all the coziness! I can’t get enough of them this season!

One of my favorite things about going back to school was always shopping for school supplies and getting organized (total nerd, yet so OCD) Whether it’s school or the office, these glammed up versions of everyday essentials will make anyone excited for their first day.

Nail Caviar

Nail Caviar 11

With one of my biggest beauty faux pas being chipped nails, I’ve been hesitant to try the latest 3D nail trend. After spotting a metallic, pearlized version of the nail art at Urban Outfitters, I couldn’t resist.

Nail Caviar

I opted to make a subtle statement sporting the chic beads on a solo finger. The simple two-step process gives an instantly glam look. After adding two swipes of polish, dip nail into the caviar pot and let dry 15-20 minutes. I added a base coat and top coat to the nails I didn’t dip. I’m obsessed with this chic mani.
