obsessed -- hive & honey.

ATTAINABLE: Forever21 Cuffed Cropped Pant; $19.80
Although I generally reach for more tailored styles, especially come autumn, I must admit that I'm totally enamored with these darling Forever21 pants.  They have such an easy silhouette, I love the bow belt, and the color is absolutely to die for.  I think that their versatility is my favorite part; they could so easily be dressed up for work with a fitted jacket and pair of pumps but would make the perfect easy weekend wear as well.

So many designers have a signature piece or type of clothing that they do perfectly -- and that specialization is a fantastic thing.  Of course, it's quite rare that a brand can do a plethora of things well, and at a reasonable price point to boot.  Enter Hive & Honey, a trendy, affordable brand that offers everything from feminine jewelry to pretty dresses to chic shoes.  Suffice to say, I'd take a closet full of these pieces.

Hive & Honey Mona Piped Sleeveless Dress in Navy (also in Sand); $69
I simply adore everything about this sweet little dress.  From the perfect length to the pleated skirt to the pretty contrast piping, it feels so fresh and chic.  The flattering silhouette will carry beautifully between seasons depending on accessories, and I can hardly decide which hue I like best. 

Hive & Honey Pinwheel Stud Earring; $12 
I'm always on the hunt for a great pair of interesting stud earrings.  They add a little something extra to all of my everyday outfits without making me feel as if I'm piling on the gems.  These would go with everything in my closet and add just a touch of sparkle to all of my fall looks.

Hive & Honey Heart Print Top; $54 
I'm utterly enamored by this sweet little blouse.  Though the unique shape and pretty chiffon are major factors in this love, of course, the quirky heart print is the clincher.  I love that it's in an unexpected color and the top's conventional silhouette allows it to be paired with anything from jeans and boots to pencil skirts and pumps.

Hive & Honey Chain Link Pyramid Bar Bracelet; $26 
One of my very favorite things about the transition into fall is pulling out my heavier jewelry.  Something about the cooling temperatures makes me crave rich gold pieces with lots of chains and tons of texture.  This pyramid bar bracelet mixes metals and shapes beautifully and would be fantastic for adding an edge to a little black cocktail dress.
