Start with a Statement

Necklace: Trend Tribe // Sweater: Forever 21 // Skirt: H&M (similar) // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Shoes: Report Signature Toby Bootie 
Ever feel like you’re staring aimlessly into your closet saying, “I just don’t know what to wear?” Yeah, me too. So I’m trying a new tactic, where I start with a piece of statement jewelry and build an outfit around it.

For this post on statement jewels (and more to come this week) I’m collaborating with Trend Tribe, a New York-based accessories company that not only has some super-snazzy trends (ALL for under $50!), but also provides college students hands on experience as philanthropic entrepreneurs (learn more about their Trendsetter Program here). Read on for a giveaway below! 

Trend Tribe’s Gold Cleopatra necklace (get YOURS with code justsarajane25 for free shipping!) acted as a backdrop for my cozy fall outfit. I pulled from the taupe color in the necklace to opt for a matching sweater and corresponding accessories. The chunky cropped sweater (opt for solid colors as a background) showcased the necklace perfectly, and a green hat was great for pulling out the orange contrasting color in the necklace. And as we all know, fall is great for rocking your favorite sweaters, but instead of pairing with jeans, try a circle skirt (like this one) that will highlight the waist and give a sense of occasion to the look. Fabulous booties are a must to complete the look!

Have your eye on one of Trend Tribe's affordable + adorable pieces? Use code *justsarajane25* for free shipping on any orders placed on, now through 11:59 EST on Sunday, 10/12!

Stay tuned later this week as I continue to share ways to make a statement. Click below for your chance to win a Gold Cleopatra necklace, this week!

Ch-ch-changes - Stepping into Fall

Skirt: ASOS (similar) // Jacket: ASOS (similar) // Shirt: Old Navy // Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft // Photo: Martim Thomaz 
Fall has ARRIVED. And it is making an entrance.

All hail the season of crisp air, fantastic boots, and fabulous layers. That said, there are some of our favorite warm-weather pieces that we aren't yet ready to store under the bed. I'm sharing a layered look today (special for fall!), where I'm re-purposing some warm-weather faves (and closet staples!).

A chambray shirt can go a long way. Use as a base for layering thicker sweaters and jackets (you are now prepared for any temperature!). Play with varying patterns in between layers. If you're opting for a bold skirt (like this one), use the top of your outfit to balance out with solids. Lastly, the bold lip is BACK. Celebrate accordingly.
