The Annual “Movember” PSA

It’s November (weird right?) and I can finally find an excuse to be on Pinterest all day, looking at pictures of hot bearded men. Of course, I never do this any other day of the year…. My great reason for doing this all day is of course the fact that November is the month that we all raise awareness for men’s health issues such as cancer and men do this by growing out their facial hair. I love this because #1) I want the men in my life to stay healthy, and #2) beards are sexy, especially when they are at that perfect “scruff” stage (in my opinion). So, the little cherry on the top is that I get to do this annual post of sexy beard pictures to give the guys some incentive to grow out their own and the ladies some reasons to push their own guys to join in on the trend. Behold my friends, beard porn..

Friday Favorites: NO SHAVE NOVEMBER EDITION!

Instead of my usual Friday Favorites post, I’ve decided to honor Movember by featuring my favorite bearded celebs.  No shave November is one of my favorite parts of this festive month because I get to swoon over all of the sexy scruff and make fun of my guy friends who can’t effectively grow a nice beard.  If you love facial hair as much as I do, feast your eyes on my favorite men sporting all levels of Movember growth – from shadow to scruff to beard. Ladies feel free to drool over these pictures (I definitely will), and boys… don’t feel ashamed to get some ideas for yourself!

Style Guide: The Chunky Sweater!

Even though I love the warm weather in the summer and spring months, I’m always ready to start layering my outfits and bundling up with a cup of hot chocolate when November hits.  I always get so excited when it’s time to pull out all of my cozy sweaters, boots, and leggings from the depths of my closet and put my denim cut-offs and bathing suits into hibernation.  These fall and winter staples are my favorites because they’re super easy to throw on, always comfortable, and can pretty easily hide any pale winter skin or stubbly legs that definitely can’t be hidden in the warmer months.

For the past few years in the fashion world, chunky sweaters have made a huge presence and I definitely don’t see them going anywhere for this fall and winter season (thank goodness).  In my mind, there’s no reason not to like this type of sweater.  Versatile, slouchy, cozy, and quite forgiving to the body, wearing them feels like a warm embrace. They’re such a valuable style to have in your closet because they can be paired with almost anything when it’s cool outside, and depending on the rest of the outfit, can easily be dressed up or down.  In case you need a little guidance in styling your own chunky sweaters to stay on trend this season, I’ve provided you with 5 different ways to wear them, which are shown below.

Fall/Winter Fashion Wish List: Hat Edition!

Now that we’ve made our way into the month of November, it’s officially time to bundle up for the cool and festive holiday season ahead of us.  This means that we can finally dust off our hats, scarves, and gloves and start planning out our cozy outfits for the next few months!  Even though scarves and gloves can be fun and adorable additions to any wardrobe, my favorite fall and winter accessory is definitely the hat.  They’re great fashion items to add to any cold weather outfit as well as the perfect way to cover up a bad hair day.  After browsing through hundreds of September fashion week street style photos as well as the fall 2013 runways, I’ve gathered my 4 favorite hat trends for the next few months: the sporty baseball cap, the cool slouchy beanie, the flirty wide brim hat, and the wildcard furry hat.  Check out a few of my favorites within these trends right below, and if you haven’t already, get going on your hat shopping ASAP because they’re a necessity for this season!
