This post on fall fashion is sponsored by Meijer.  All words and opinions – and fashion sense – are my own.

Fall is here and that means colder temperatures.  After months of being in the 80s and 90s, it’s actually supposed to be pretty cold here the next few days.  That means it’s time to think about putting away the t-shirts and flip-flops and digging out the sweaters and boots.

As much as I love my flip-flops – and I do love my flip-flops – I look forward to switching out my wardrobe and moving into comfy, cozy fall fashions.  Not only do clothes get cozier in material and style, but the color palate changes, too.  As the leaves change more earthy tones seem to abound and I get to wear some of my favorite colors: chocolate browns, cranberry, burnt orange, and others.

I think I’m probably a lot like most women, especially those of us who don’t have a trust fund, in that I keep my closet filled with a lot of basics that are easy to mix and match.  But I do like to add a couple of pieces and a few accessories each season to help me keep current with the trends.  I don’t want it to break the bank, though, so I keep my eyes peeled for great sales on quality items and shop for great accessories at places with great prices to match.  Places like Meijer!

Before moving to Kentucky I had never even heard of Meijer.  Once I shopped there a couple of times, though, I was hooked.  They have a large, well-stocked grocery section paired with pretty much anything else you could want – toys, seasonal merchandise, pet supplies, and of course clothes and accessories.

I shared with you a few weeks ago my review of Wantables. It’s a subscription service that lets you plug in your likes and dislikes and then receive a box of accessories based on your preferences. They also have some seasonal boxes you can pick up, like their current Halloween box, full of things to help you pull off a great costume. Continue reading »

I received a Wantable subscription box in order to facilitate my review.  All thoughts and words are my own.

I don’t wear a lot of jewelry on a day-to-day basis.  When you’re chasing after a toddler it’s a good idea not to have anything that dangles.  Being strangled with a necklace or having your earlobes torn open by a snagged earring isn’t really my idea of a good time.  But though I don’t get to wear it as much as I’d like, I still love a good accessory.

Recently I heard about Wantable.com, a subscription box focused around fashion and beauty.  They actually have two “paths” you can choose from: makeup (full size products) or limited edition accessories.  While I have a serious love for nail polish, I thought it would be fun to go the jewelry route and see just what showed up on my doorstep.

The reviewer has been compensated for the Frends Taylor Headphones review in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions and words are my own.

When you’re putting together your outfit for the day, you probably think about what accessories you’ll add, too.  Shoes, a bag, earrings, necklace, maybe even a belt.  You might choose what color nail polish or eye shadow to put on.  Some people may even take the accessorizing as far as matching up an umbrella, coat, or hat.  And lots of people have multiple cases for their phones to switch it up based on their mood or clothes.

One accessory you might not think about, however, is your headphones.  Why should you go for boring and plain when you put so much thought into the rest of your style?  Fortunately, now there is a pair of trendy headphones from Frends that are just as rockin’ as you are.
