On Sale At Urban

You can tell me "thanks" when you go to the Urban website and see how much is on sale, but for now, know that I've gone through it all and pulled out the best pieces that you can still wear for Fall.  ALL of these prices are an additional 30% off 'til Sunday.  Sure, the site is full of cropped tee's with graphic obscenities on them, and the random mustachioed beer mug, but underneath all that, there's some really grown-up amazing stuff.  

Now excuse me as I go buy that mug.    

Sam Edelman Landon Harness Boot, $139.99
See two posts ago about how to wear your booties now and later.

Silence + Noise Teddy Boxy Blazer, $39.99
I can never get enough of a blazer, and a blazer that looks like it was worn by Julia Sugarbaker, 
I will never grow tired of.

Lazy Twins Neon Print Blazer, $79.99
I'm still not over a hit of neaon, and I'm still not over a little tribal print.  This is a higher end brand that they carry at Urban so this probably has an excellent fit.  

Silence and Noise Jogger Pant, $29.99
Ok, trust me on this one. Dressy Sweat Pants.  I know. 2011 Amber would have said no way Jose.  But, for real.  Half tuck a silk shirt in the front and wear with casual-ish heels like this.  Perfect for PMS days!!!!

Coincidence and Chance Polka Dot Pullover Sweater, $39.99
Well, I love polka dots like I love re-runs of The Notebook.  Except polka dots make me smile not bawl.  Polka dots don't look like Ryan Gosling though, so there's that.  Anyway, this sweater is awesome and looks great with those leather leggings. 

Goldendaze Newton Round Sunglasses, $24.99
Amazing sunglasses.  The end.

Bing Bang Geometry Stud Earring, $34.99
Bing Bang is one of my favorite dainty jewelry lines.  Love these in your second or third hole.

One Girl Nation::"While We're Young" Video


I recently worked on one of the most fun shoots I've done in a while. How could you not love huge hair bows, prints that say "POW!" on them, and holographic leggings?  You can't.  It's not possible. This new group is called One Girl Nation, and they have a lot to say to teen girls about priorities. Watch the video we styled above.  Big props to Haley Hoover, former all-star intern, for rocking some day-of styling responsibilities.

Wear Your Booties Now!

Itching for Fall?  Yeah, me too.  I wore my booties today, and my ankles were sweating so bad in the 90 degree heet.  It'll eventually get here though, but until then, clammy ankles and all, I want to wear my adorable ankle boots.  I put together a little guide to help you transition yours!  They're great with dresses right now, like I've paired them below.  You definitely wanna make sure they don't hit you in a weird spot on your leg though.  Always keep in mind that you should still be able to see the smallest part of your lower leg when your boot is on.  

Other random notes:  That sunscreen is my favorite cheap face sunscreen I've ever used.  It doesn't feel like you are wearing a Halloween mask when you put it on--it is light as a feather.  That denim vest?  Is just the best ever to throw over any sort of sundress going into Fall to make it feel just slightly more seasonally appropriate.  OK, that's all.  Wear your booties!  

The Boot:  Jeffrey Campbell Hanger Suede Raw Booties, $165

1. Dress, Zara, $89 // 2. Bag, Lucky Brand, $198 // 3. Denim Vest, Madewell, $88 // 4. Hat, Topshop, $20 // 5. Loreal Sublime Sun, $10.99 // 6. Fiona Paxton Steel Bracelet, Urban Outfitters, $285
