AE lookbook On the Edge

I’m always on the lookout for good fall fashion inspiration, and one lookbook that caught my eye recently was American Eagle Outfitters’ “On The Edge.” It’s short, but I love every look, as well as AE’s creative mix of boho, edgy, and sporty styles.

If you’re ready for fall fabrics, textures, and colors, recreate these looks with the three outfits I’ve put together below:

Look #1

Ae lookbook peasant dress leather vest

This look is the perfect boho-moto pairing, and would work well for a concert, date, or other night-out excursion. Start by mixing a feminine, flowy peasant dress with a tough black moto vest.

Dress it up with black knee-high boots, then accessorize with more natural, boho accessories, like a turquoise pendant and woven bracelets. For the final touch, throw on a black felt hat over your slightly-undone hair.

Look #2

AE lookbook plaid shirt ripped jeans

This next outfit is casual and grungy, but with some unexpected elements. Pair dark wash ripped jeans with a drapey tank, and layer a navy plaid shirt over the top.

Rustic suede booties are perfect for fall, and a woven charm bracelet adds another natural, bohemian touch. Finally, add a little sparkle and edge to this look with a chunky, layered chain necklace.

Look #3

AE lookbook geo leggings moto jacket

This comfy, sporty ensemble would be perfect for hitting the gym right after class, or just for one of those lazy, roll-out-of-bed days. Find a pair of bold, printed leggings and style them with a stretchy gray tee (and if you’re skeptical of leggings as pants, go for thicker athletic-type leggings, or wear a long, oversized tee).

Throw on your favorite stylish athletic sneakers, and for a little edge, polish off the look with a faux leather jacket and sleek silver rings.

Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Olivia Munn, Hilary Duff, & Nikki Reed

Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Olivia Munn, Hilary Duff, & Nikki Reed

Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Olivia Munn, Hilary Duff, and Nikki Reed. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Olivia Munn’s Trendy Transitional Outfit

Actress Olivia Munn looked right on trend in a cute between-seasons outfit. Olivia wore floral print shorts with a layered front and a sweater featuring an open-knit design. She kept her accessories neutral with a top handle satchel and pointy-toe Christian Louboutin heels.

Her sweater and shorts combo is perfect for the current weather, when it’s cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon. Olivia’s floral print shorts are an ode to summer, while her sweater is ready for fall.

You don’t have to put away your summer-y shorts just yet! These pom-pom shorts are right on trend, and feature a similar coloring as Olivia’s. Rock them like she did with a lightweight sweater in a neutral hue. The open knit style will ward off the slight fall chill in the air, and the muted color palette adds to the early autumn vibe.

While Olivia’s heels are awesome, their design and price makes them not so practical for the average college girl. Instead, go for something comfier; these tan ankle booties are a great addition to this summer-to-fall look and pair well with a satchel in a similar shade.

Look 2: Hilary Duff’s Casual Chic Look

Hilary Duff looked on-trend in leather pants, a long white tee, a denim jacket, a gray scarf, and black booties. Hilary’s look strikes the perfect balance between casual (the t-shirt and denim jacket) and chic (the leather pants).

Leather pants and leggings are a trend that is still going strong this season, but they can sometimes feel too bold to wear during the day. However, by pairing them with more relaxed pieces, Hilary shows us how it’s done.

Hilary’s outfit looks high-end, but it’s actually pretty easy to put together, and you’ll still make a big statement. These bold and edgy faux leather leggings can be worn to class with a long white t-shirt and a denim jacket, which creates a laid-back yet stylish look. A gray scarf and black booties are both versatile fall accessories, and complement this ensemble perfectly.

Look 3: Nikki Reed’s Ladylike B&W Ensemble

Nikki Reed looked sleek in this modern, ladylike look. Her entirely black-and-white ensemble consisted of a houndstooth print flared skirt, a black scalloped edge top, black crisscross wedges, and oversized sunnies. This outfit has a polished vibe to it, and the color palette manages to be both classic and statement-making.

Nikki’s outfit features ladylike silhouettes, but the black-and-white color palette keeps things modern and trendy. This checked flare skirt does a fabulous job of emulating Nikki’s, while this scalloped edge tank top is identical to hers. Go with chic black accessories – a sleek satchel, glamorous, oversized sunglasses, and strappy wedge sandals – to complete the look.

4 Amazing Drugstore Hair Products to Try

2 Comments

Amazing Drugstore Hair Products

When I go to the drugstore to look for new hair products, sometimes I get so overwhelmed with the amount of brands and types of products that I just give up. Or, I just continue to buy the same products over and over again! Well, not anymore. I recently took a trip to my closest drugstore, looked through the shelves, and bought the products that caught my eye.

I’ve given those products a try, and wanted to write about four of my new favorite drugstore hair products. Read on to learn what they are:

1. Shea Moisture Yucca & Aloe Thickening Growth Milk

Yucca milk
$10.99 at CVS

At first glance, this stuff sounds a bit scary. Thickening growth milk? Well, never fear – this is an amazing product. Basically, this is a leave-in conditioner with vitamins, like biotin, to help your hair to grow faster.

After washing, you put the tiniest pea-sized amount in your hair, then blow-dry and style as usual. I am not kidding when I tell you that my hair was so voluminous and soft that I was actually shocked.

On top of that, it’s sulfate-free and free of synthetic colors, plus the yucca extract helps to thicken your hair while making it voluminous. I will definitely be keeping this one in my cabinet, and I’m excited to see if it actually makes my hair grow!

2. Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray

Brazilian keratin therapy
$5.74 at Walmart

Okay, I lied. This one is not a new product to me! It’s actually one of my absolute favorites – a product I always go back to and repurchase. I use this Organix heat protecting spray every time I straighten or curl my hair, and I just love how it doesn’t make it feel stiff or dull.

It also smells like the beach, which is a huge plus in my book! I’m not the biggest fan of the Organix line as a whole, but this product stands out in an awesome way.

3. Garnier Fructis Style Full Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray

Garnier Fructis anti-humidity hairspray
$3.49 at Target

I mentioned a few posts ago that I wanted to try out more Garnier products, so I did! This hairspray is amazing. It’s smells awesome and keeps your hair in place without getting stiff.

It’s perfect for when you straighten your hair or lightly curl it and just need a bit of hold. Honestly, I spray this on my hair about three times a day because I just love the scent. Go to the store and pick up this hairspray. It’s only $3.49, so you have no excuse to not give it a try!

4. L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Smooth Intense Polishing Conditioner

$4.99 at Walgreens

I am obsessed with L’Oreal Paris’ Advanced Haircare line. I seriously want to try everything in the line, so I’m just making my way through all of the products. This conditioner is my favorite so far because it makes my hair feel fantastic.

I straighten my hair a lot during the school year, which can lead to damaged locks, and this made my hair feel like it was “fixed.” I’m super-excited to continue to use this product to see if there actually is a real difference in my hair’s condition!
