David & Young Felt Fedora | $28

Why we love it:

It’s cute, but not over-the-top. Adding this hat to an outfit can really bring it all together. It’s such a cute accessory, and it complements what you’re wearing without distracting too much attention. If you’re looking for that understated finishing touch for your look, this is it.

Wear it anywhere. This fedora is so versatile. Wear it out on a brisk and sunny fall day, on a grey and misty afternoon, to the mall, to school, or even to grandma’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. This little thing will go anywhere with you.

Of course, the many colors to choose from. This seems to be a theme: We love options! Check out the stylish selections below, pick your favorite, and get ready for compliments.

Do you guys remember this festival-inspired post from Alyssa? We’ve loved these metallic tattoos ever since, and now here they are:

Flash-Tattoosmetallic temporary tattoos | $22

Why we love them:

The jewelry inspiration. Shiny embellishments are so trendy right now, and we love that these tattoos are shaped into cool bracelet and necklace shapes. Forgot your jewels at home? Don’t want to deal with pesky chains? These tattoos give you the look without any of the hassle.

They last for days! While, yes, these tattoos are temporary, they endure regular life and showering for  4-6 days. That means they’re perfect for weekend getaways, music festivals and extended vacations. (Dare we think about Spring Break this early?) Have fun!

It’s already November, which means the holidays are right around the corner. We’re sitting here looking at all the beautiful holiday-party dresses, being dazzled by the sparkling beads and metallic shimmer, and brainstorming ways to work those details into everyday life. It isn’t easy to pull off something so shiny for casual wear, but then we saw this skirt and we knew—this skirt is the answer.

heroembroidered tulle skater skirt | $58

Why we love this skirt:

The gorgeous embroidery. This skirt is stunning. Golden shimmer, lacy detailing, ornate pattern…it’s everything. It screams holiday-party glam, but not so much that you can’t wear it on a normal day. In fact, pair it with a cozy oversized sweater or graphic sweatshirt and roll on out the door.

The girly tulle. We love that this skirt is made from tulle. It’s lightweight so you get that flirty skater-skirt style, and it’s super playful and feminine. Paired with the embroidery, this skirt is a dream come true.

The elastic waistband. We know, we know — boring! But this stretchy waistband means it’s comfortable and it fits you perfectly. There’s nothing better.

Introducing Sun & Shadow

As an avid lover of the boho chic style, I couldn’t be more excited about the new Sun & Shadow line coming to BP.! This brand is perfect for all you free-spirited girls looking for feminine and bohemian pieces.

Some of my favorite pieces from the Sun & Shadow line are the sweaters! Chunky and oversized knits with folky patterns and textures are endless. Some of these sweaters are statement pieces alone, but they’re also delightfully warm and cozy. Take a look at some of my favorite sweaters from Sun & Shadow.

Ombré, please! I love, love, love this white to black ombré sweater. If you’re quite short like me, wear this as a sweater dress. A delicate slip or shorts would suffice, too. Tall moccasins are the finishing touch in this boho look.

Ombré Pullover
 

This sweater has a relaxed, off-the-shoulder cowl neck and tiny, scallop-shaped cutouts. With mauve and white colors, this sweater is the most feminine of the three.

I think I’m in love. I would be lying if I said I didn’t love this fringey Aztec heaven of a sweater. Give this sweater the spotlight (that it truly deserves) by pairing it with a simple day dress, or jeans and a tee.

Look no further! Your perfect fall sweater is right here. We’ve totally fallen for this go-to marled sweater—let us tell you why.

BP. marled sweater | $38

Why we love this sweater:

The marled yarns. Different colored strands are twisted together to form yarns that give this sweater its cool speckled look. We love how that gives the look visual dimension rather than being one flat color.

The front-curving seams. Raised seams subtly curve from the sides toward the front, giving this sweater a super-chic shape. It’s comfy and flattering—what more is there?

The undeniable coziness. This sweater is definitely one you’ll be reaching for day after day. It has a nice wide neckline, long sleeves and the perfect length for wearing with jeans or leggings. You’ll really nail a cozy fall look with this one!

The weather is definitely getting chilly here in Seattle. We’re already beginning to don last year’s coats, but we’re craving a lightweight jacket to transition us from summer to winter. Enter the field jacket.

herohooded field jacket | $64

Why we love it:

 The weight. The lightweight feel of this jacket makes it the perfect layering piece for fall. It adds just enough warmth to combat the chill but not so much you’ll overheat.

The hood. We love that this jacket has a hood! It gives the look a comfy, casual vibe, plus you’re set if you get caught in the rain.

The versatility. This jacket seriously goes with everything. And, even if it doesn’t, look! More amazing colors. One of these is sure to do the trick.

Here it is: my guide for dressing in theme for football games. Unlike basketball games (indoors, with a stable climate), football games can happen in any kind of weather—and we want to make sure you are having fun, not suffering from a heat stroke or frostbite!

Step 1: Keep tabs on the weather. Start watching the forecast up to a week in advance, and continue to check on the weather the day of the game. (There is usually a 50-50 chance the weather will change.)

Step 2: Find out the theme for that game. At my school we have a calendar of all the game dates and themes so the students can arrive in full spirit.

Step 3: Enjoy your fellow fans. The joy of themed football games is that there will almost always be someone dressed in a more extreme outfit than you.

For colder games, I suggest layering a long-sleeve T-shirt under a short-sleeve T-shirt, then wear a sweatshirt, vest, jacket and so on. When layering, you want to do lots of thin layers so you don’t get that “chunky” look. Here is a FBF (Flashback Friday) picture of some friends and I in our junior year. As you can tell it was a Pink Out and we just wore whatever warm, pink things we could find.

hero

For warmer games, wear running shorts that are in theme paired with a plain T-shirt. That’s always a good g-to for those super hot and sweaty nights. (Especially if you have hundreds of people surrounding you with their body heat!)

Here are some outfits I have worn for themed games:

Black Out

    Black pant  Converse  Black top

Articles of Society ‘Halley’ Jean | Converse High Tops | BP. Ballet Tank

Camo Out

    Camo pant  Converse Camo top

STS Blue Cargo Pant | Converse High Tops | BP. V-Neck Tee

Pink Out

 Pink top  Pink bottom  Pink shoe

BP. Scoop Neck Tee | BP. Undercover ‘Skinni Mini’ Sweatpants | Nike ‘Air Pegasus 31′

Remember, football games are very casual. This is not the place to dress to the nines and look super fab. Simplicity is key and will always look cute. Have fun with your outfit!

Mahal,
Bella

 

Fall is here and winter is approaching quickly, so we must prepare to look our best! I’m a huge fan of the “pop of color” trendYou can take an outfit from zero to 100 by adding just TWO matching color accessories: a watch a pair of shoes. Here I started with a black-and-white graphic tee and black joggers, but the look was way too simple for my liking until I added lime-green pops of color.

I put together sets for everyone to choose from to make your colors pop.

For the ladies, I selected these items:

Corals, lime greens and bright colors in general are a huge trend this fall, so don’t be afraid to add a little color. These accessories are designed for exercising, but they also go well with everyday looks.

Now for the gentlemen, I chose these items:

As everyone knows, Roshes are super comfortable, and pairing them with this futuristic blue watch can really take your look to the next level.

These Chucks are pretty loud, so I balanced them with a simple G-Shock watch, which keeps the outfit from feeling overdone.

No matter how you choose to accessorize, remember that adding a little color is always a plus.

It’s that time of year again…homecoming! While everyone else is worried about dates, dinners and dresses, you will be stress free with my easy guide to accessorizing for homecoming.

Personally, I love a little black dress no matter the occasion. Plus, you can easily accessorize it.

We can go in two different directions with this dress: have statement shoes or statement jewelry.

For statement shoes, I would choose these babies:

Steve Madden Pumps

I would pair these abstract-patterned pumps with simple jewelry, like this matching necklace and stud earrings.

For statement jewelry, I would choose this absolutely fabulous statement necklace, along with a hint of color from these studded earrings.

We just love a full skirt these days, and this taffeta midi is perfect for the changing seasons. It’s so girly and playful—this skirt is seriously a must-have for fall.

hero

taffeta midi skirt | $42

Why we love it:

The trendy length. The high-waisted style falls to right around your knees, that perfect midi length that’s so big this year. The length automatically gives you a more sophisticated look, but it’s versatile enough that you can pair it with both flats and heels.

The lustrous fabric. This shiny taffeta is amazing! It isn’t a typical fabric we find in our closets, which makes it that much more fun. Play around with mixing different textures together in your look — taffeta easily complements both your favorite knit tee and your dressier chiffon top. Top with a leather jacket and voila.

The girly look. There’s no doubt about the inherent girliness of this skirt. We love that style, and this skirt gives us the option of playing that up without being too overboard. Alternatively, this skirt also lends itself to a more casual look paired with flats or even sneakers.

Also, heyo—more cute colors:
