{Currently Crushing: Ryan Gosling Style}

I don't know whats going on with me lately, but men's fashion is getting the best of me. For good reason, though, Ryan Gosling has won me over in the style department. With his recent movie Crazy, Stupid Love, he was beyond fashionable. I mean, not only was he a real life McDreamy, but his outfits almost distracted me from the movie... I was that obsessed. His style perfection didn't end there, during his premiere tour he was dressed as sharp as ever. Here is some serious eye candy...Enjoy!

and my own, personal favorite...kodak moment with his beloved dog...

I think my personal favorite is the last one, there is just too much going on in this picture not to love it. His trusty canine is wearing what looks to be a sock? Not to mention Ryan's casually put together look of a perfectly fitted suit and a t-shirt. Basically, my final thoughts are that he is one hot sob. Hope you enjoyed this delish eye candy, and happy Monday!

(Currently Craving: Fall Must Have's)

Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. I love the colors, I love leaves on the ground (mostly for stepping on them for that crunch sound, obviously), I am absolutely in love with boots, I love that I can start to add more layers into my outfits and, of course, I love the holidays that come with fall. I mean, who doesn't like Halloween and Thanksgiving? Anyways, here are some of my fall must have's!

Fur vests, cargo/camo, mustard, bright pants, leather, leopard print, red, and peplum silouettes are some of my favorite looks for this fall. Give me a pair of bright skinny jeans, or a leather skirt and I will be a happy girl. I have been waiting for-ev-er to be able to rock some of my leather gear, so now that Fall is going to be settling in, I can't wait to mix and match it. Peplum silouettes are so feminine and have been one of my favorite skirt and dress styles recently. Mustard and red hues are in this fall, and although red looks good on almost everyone, mustard is a bit more tricky. I can't really rock a mustard dress, so I will probably be layering it in. Leopard print is so fun, I have been obsessing over finding the perfect shoes. Fur vests are always in (in my mind) but this season they are everywhere, so pull out your old or go buy some new and rock it!
I can't wait to really get into fall looks, there is so many more options when you aren't dying of heat! Enjoy!

{2011 Emmy Awards; Best Dressed}

The Emmy's are one of the few award shows that I actually get excited to watch. I love the clothes, I love seeing if my favorite shows get the recognition they deserve, and I really love the clothes. Yeah, okay, so basically I just really love the dresses, but whatever, I still watch! This year it seems red was like the cute, popular boy in high school, and all the ladies wanted a piece of him (Kate Winslet, Lea Michele, and Nina Dobrev just to name  a few).  

Dianna Agron in Roksanda Ilincic

Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang

Kate Winslet in Elie Saab

Christina Hendricks in Johanna Johnson

Some people really were not fans of this silver dress, but I love the metalic silver look with her fair skin, her hair adds color. I think this dress showed off her curves just right.

{OOTD: Its Official}

Its officially fall and I couldn't be happier. Give me a trench, some boots and a scarf and I am golden. I love layering, I love fall colors. I love Halloween candy! (But who doesn't, right?!) Last weekend was so gorgeous here in Seattle. Then Monday came and knocked us right into Fall, literally over night. This weekend was full of rain and clouds, so thank god for my trusty trench coat and boots!

Jacket: Forever 21, Boots: Chinese Laundry via Nordstrom, Sweater: H&M

Oh, P.S....Happy Monday! :) Stay tuned for my Emmy recap and favorite fashion statements of the night!

{Michael Buble Tuesday}

You know those times when you re-discover a really old song on your itunes and get obsessed all over again? Yeah, well, this just happened to me last week. I stumbled upon an old playlist on my old laptop full of Frank Sinatra, Jason Mraz, Michael Buble and some other oldies but goodies. I forgot just how much I love Michael Buble, so today is a random music post to share my re-discovered love.

(His voice really is's love.)

And just to keep things a little fashion oriented, who knew Michael was such a fashionisto?

{Current Crave: To be an Olsen Twin}

I just want to be an Olsen twin, either one will do, really. Is that really too much to ask? Other than the fact that they are adorable, insanely successful and ridiculously talented designers, I just think they are fabulous. Sure, sometimes they look like they just rolled out of bed and gave absolutely no effort. But other days this nonchalant chic is done with perfection. They have mastered the whole look like you didn't try thing. In my recent google image and tumblr talking I have found some perfect outfits for fall inspiration. Here are some of my faves...

{Currently Craving; Chunky Granny Sweaters}

I love, love, LOVE  me a chunky-comfy-oversized sweater. Now, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear chunky sweater is granny sweater. Fortunately, not all chunky sweaters are granny sweaters. Sure, you can still go to a number of stores and get the classic boxy, grandma sweater, but this fall chunky, oversized sweaters are in for more than just senior citizens. Here are some of my favorite looks to make those chunky sweaters a little more fashion forward!

From bright denim to leather a mini, chunky sweaters literally go with anything and everything. I plan on wearthing them all the freaking time this fall and winter.
Hope these looks inspire you a bit,  enjoy!

{Labor Day Weekend: Stripes and wedges}

Having a three day weekend is glorious, coming back to reality...not so much. My labor day weekend was fun, relaxing and a bit embarrassing (karaoke is not really my thing!). I spent a lot of time outside enjoying some of the last summer sun Seattle will get. Soon fall will be here, and although I love Seattle in the fall, I still want to enjoy every last second of summer while I still can. This particular morning was sunny, but cold. I threw on my favorite wedges, an oversized shirt and called it good! It got pretty warm later, but this outfit was perfect until the afternoon (I just swapped the jeans for shorts)!

Wedges: Forever 21
Shirt: H&M
Jeans: Joe's
Sunglasses: Nordstrom
