How To Wear The Bomber Vest

I love wearing vests in the Fall before it gets too cold to go without sleeves. My favorite is the bomber vest.

You can bomber vests in almost every store this year. The prices range from around $20 up to $2,000 if you want to get real fancy! There is a huge difference in styles too.

I personally prefer the leather look like this Goode Rider Ladies Bomber Vest. It’s the perfect warm and cozy layer with versatile style! Perfect for the chilly fall days, this stylish vest can be worn with anything from your favorite jeans to a dress for an evening out.

How To Wear Wedge Sneakers 3 Ways

Wedge sneakers are a huge trend for Fall 2013 / Winter 2014 and that means there are so many different pairs to choose from, it can be totally overwhelming trying to find a good pair. Then once you’ve found the perfect pair of wedge sneakers, what do you wear them with?!

No worries, I put together 3 outfits that are similar to outfits I’ve actually worn recently with my wedge sneakers. I have the Naturalizer Paitlyn Wedge Sneakers in “antiba green suede”. When I first took them out of the box, I thought they looked narrow and were concerned about how comfortable they would be. And then I put them on. And then I died and went to Heaven from the sheer amazement of how ridiculously comfortable they are and how easy they are to walk and stand in. It doesn’t even seem scientifically possible, But once you put them on, you’ll be a believer too.

I chose green because I wanted a unique pair that would stand out apart from the crowd. They come in black leather, taupe suede and dark brown leather as well if you want something more neutral and easy to pair.

Master The Fall Trends – Black & White

The Fashionable Housewife was selected by top department store, KOHL’S, to teach you how to “Master The Fall Trends” at Kohl’s for around $100!

First, we styled “New Classics”, then we showed you an updated look for the “Double Denim” trend. Last week we covered “Sporty Chic” and now it’s time for our last trend of this series – “Black & White”!

Trend #4: Black & White
There is no grey area when it comes to staying on trend this fall! It’s as easy as black and white. Make a bold, mod statement by wearing black and white color blocking, black and white graphic prints or stripe, then accent your outfit with a pop color (We recommend the season’s hottest colors – bright red or cobalt blue).

Sounds easy enough. I think we can TOTALLY do this trend. I’m loving black and white, especially stripes lately. I’m also really happy that cobalt blue is a trending color since it’s one of my favorites.
