ATTAINABLE: Juliet & Company Arc en Ciel Bracelet
There's something that I love about vintage jewelry -- maybe it's the slightly weathered look or the idea that each piece has had a life and a story before it fell into my hands. When I can't find just the right piece, though, pretty vintage-inspired pieces have to do. I love this gorgeous little Juliet & Company bracelet. It has a rich gold border and the sparkly interior is fantastic. It would pair perfectly with everything from a floaty blouse and jeans to cocktail dresses and strappy sandals, which is, in my opinion, the true hallmark of a great piece of jewelry.
When it comes to my fall wardrobe, I generally prefer pieces that are more structured -- especially with regard to blazers. A well-fitted one can create such a great shape and look really polished. But right now, I'm totally enamored with draped jackets. I think they're so chic and relaxed-looking, but still add an element of sophistication to any outfit. Perfect when paired with skinny jeans and boots or tossed over a summer dress to extend its seasonal life.

This chic little Rebecca Minkoff jacket is, as far as I'm concerned, a must for fall. Though I love the neon color for the last weeks of summer, I think that this burnt orange shade would carry beautifully into autumn with tweedy shorts to match the changing leaves.

Even with a unique silhouette like these jackets, you always run the risk of several starting to look the same after awhile. I love the lapels on this blazer: they're so wide, have a great shape, and the contrasting color is phenomenal. And it's a huge bargain to boot -- brilliant.
Yes. Yes. Yes. This is undoubtedly my favorite jacket of the bunch. The shape is absolutely fabulous. It's so versatile: lightweight enough to work as a simple cover-up, but heavy enough to serve as outerwear as the days slowly turn chillier. And both colors are the perfect neutrals that would pair easily with every single piece in my wardrobe. Yes, please.

I'm crazy for draped leather jackets. I think it's such a pretty way to add softness to what's normally a slightly tougher piece. Although a darker shade would certainly be more conventional for fall, I love this white one from Alice + Olivia. The shortened sleeves and light hue are sure to help you stand out in a crowd.
Will YOU be wearing draped jackets this fall?
