Here’s the last set
of clothes graciously provided by Neimans and shot by Christos Patelis. I hope
you’ve all enjoyed the series! I had so much fun putting it together! Would you
guys like to see a similar series in the future?

I’m always looking
for fun ways to amp up my casual clothes for class, and leather trimming is one
of my favorite fall embellishments. This bold blue Bailey 44 shirt is feminine,
fierce and easy to throw on before your deathly 8 a.m. class. I originally
fell in love with Thakoon’s Pink Patent Leather Sleeve Sweater, but I didn’t
love the price tag! Bailey 44 is a much more reasonable pick for class.
Leggings and boots
are my wardrobe staples in the fall. I’ve had to resole and touch up my Tory Burch boots a million times (similar), because I wear them to death! What’s
your favorite pair of boots you can’t live without?
The Deux Lux studded hobo (similar) is chic and practical. It brings a little attitude to the classroom
setting, doesn’t it? This arm candy is also roomy enough to carry all of your
textbooks and other essentials.
I like to keep my
hair and makeup routine under five minutes when I’m getting ready for class.
Have you tried the sock bun? I learned how to do one through this short YouTube tutorial. Coming from someone who often has arguments with a curling iron, I
promise the sock bun is super easy and quick. For makeup, I keep things
simple with a dash of mascara, neutral eyeshadow, and very little foundation.
Thanks for reading!
What are your favorite fall trends I didn’t cover?

      Thanks Monica! Just checked out your blog. Loved your about me section. I also have a desperate need for a bigger closet!

    my friend demonstrated sock bun for a bunch of us at dinner last week. i nearly fell off my chair when she did it. it's truly amazing. but something tells me my enormous head of long curly hair wouldn't stay put that easily 🙂

      Danielle, I also have really thick hair. Try using a longer tube sock.
      Thanks for stopping by Brooke du jour! xoxo
