Perfect Fall Jacket





I've officially found the perfect light jacket. You know those days where it's a little too chilly to just wear your normal clothes....but you don't want to break out a full coat? This is the solution my friends. It adds a little bit of warmth - but not too much, making it perfect for those brisk fall days! Plus it's gorgeous, so that's a bonus. I love the quilted puffer look! And you can never got wrong with a good neutral color, it goes with everything. Including my all time favorite fall outfit - a plaid button up with skinnies!

Hottest Color Pairing for Fall






One of my new favorite color pairings for this season is wine and blush. Last year, I would have NEVER thought to put these together - but it's become such a big trend, I couldn't resist and I'm so happy I tried it. Y'all. This is one of those looks that you put on and instantly feel super chic. But bonus - this look was actually super comfortable as well. This top from KUT from the Kloth, which is a new brand to me. But I absolutely loveee this little ruffle details on the shoulder. I will say the top is a little sheer - but I put a cami underneath and it was ready to go!

I can't say enough good things about these pants. Seriously, I've been wearing them to work all week long. They are SO incredibly comfortable (but they're from J.Jill, so of course they are). They're made of a soft, stretchy fabric - so you feel like you're wearing yoga pants. And look at that wine color?! So pretty. I'll be wearing these all season. And, if you haven't heard yet, the new trend for winter this year is tights under everything. So I'll probably transition these to winter with some cute polka dot black tights and booties!

Layering Neutrals





It's finally October! Woo hoooo! One of my favorite months. So I'm busting out all the stops. Booties, sweaters, hats - all the layers my heart desires.

When it comes to layers, I love pairing neutrals. It's SO easy - and perfect for those days you don't want to put a ton of thought into pairing pieces together. For this look, I went with the brown/taupe family. I snagged this tank on sale from Anthropologie, and paired it with my go to skinnies. Then I added the most gorgeous cardigan from J.Jill. I mean...can we talk about these pockets? So cute. And fair warning - this is a heavy weight sweater. Perfect for fall and winter!

Boho Jewelry Layering







I am SO excited to introduce y'all to a new brand today. Heather Hawkins has officially stolen my heart. I'm in loveeee with this jewelry. The photos truly don't do these pieces justice. They are even more gorgeous in person! If you're looking for quality pieces that are going to last you a lifetime, look no further.

I'm obessessed with this combo. The Y-chain is such a big trend right now, so as soon as I saw this Double Y Gemstone beauty, I knew I needed it! I'm also a big fan of layering necklaces to create an edgy, boho look - so the Layover Necklace was the perfect addition to this stack. The thing I like the most about Heather's line is that each of the pieces look stunning alone - but they're also easy to mix and match. Her line is full of custom cut gemstones, so you can find a style/color that suits you! I went with the labradorite because it's such a great neutral. It goes with everything!

I will definitely be adding more pieces to my collection as well as putting these on my Christmas list for family and friends! Check out the full line here! And you can use code "MusingsofGlitter" at checkout for 20% off! Happy shopping!

Star of the Show






Omgggggg. This cardigan, from Chicwish, is the STAR of the show. Sorry.....cheesy.....couldn't help myself. But seriously in love with this sweater! Big, bold prints are my all-time favorite and this is no exception. It's the perfect casual piece to make any outfit stand out. It's super cozy and the best to lounge in! I paired it with my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans and a basic white tee. Casual weekend done right.

I don't know about you all - but I plan on spending the weeknights hanging out on my porch soaking in all this pre-fall weather. Loving it!

Little Bit of Jackie O + Sandy D







So much goodness packed into this post. First of all - my favorite skinnies, aka the Denim Skinny, from Evys Tree is finally available for pre-order. These jeans are seriously the most comfortable ever. I have them in 3 colors now and wear them constantly. They're thick enough to look like a jean, but feel and fit like leggings. They're the best! And you can never go wrong with black, so I am so excited they finally added it to their collection!

Up next on the goodness train is the new jewelry line from SUGARFIX by BaubleBar at Target! Obsessed with these star pieces. They were the perfect accessories for this gorgeous pink cardigan from Chicwish. I'm a complete girly girl at heart and this cardigan had my name written allllll over it. I can't wait to wear it all fall and winter. It's the perfect layering piece. Cute with jeans, dresses, skirts - you name it. Loving this transition piece! Snag all these pieces below!

Heatless Overnight Curls


Anyone else watch Shark Tank?! It's a guilty pleasure of mine - so many creative people in this world! A few months back, I saw this product on the show and knew I had to try it! The Sleep Styler is a set of marshmallow soft rollers you can sleep in to wake up with gorgeous, no heat waves. I know....a lot of you stopped reading because you've been there, done that. But I have to say that you are wrong!! These are so different than anything you've ever tried. I've definitely used my fair share of rollers at night to avoid having to fix my hair in the morning with absolutely no success. They were always uncomfortable, or gave me awkward, kinky waves. The first time I used these - I put them in damp hair following my shower and slept in them overnight. Now, I'm not going to say they're comfortable. Because sleeping with anything in your hair is just plain uncomfortable. But comparatively, these are 10000% more comfortable than any other rollers I've tried. I was actually able to sleep through the night! But for those of you who aren't so fond of sleeping with something against your head, you can also use them throughout the morning while your hair air dries!


So first thing - you need to brush out each section before you begin. You have to have smooth hair, or your curls won't be smooth.


Then you can start rolling. You may have to play with it for a while. It definitely took me a few tries to get the hang of it. But you just wrap your hair around the roller, then take the velcro strap and wrap it around the hair to hold it in place.




Do this until your entire head is done! I needed almost a full 2 sets of the large rollers for my hair.


Then let it dry! If you're crunched for time, you can always speed up the process with a blow dryer.


After you take the rollers out, you can just finish with some hairspray or whatever products you normally use.



And voila! So easy. And SO much healthier for your hair. 

PS - if you have shorter hair, they have smaller rollers as well!

UPDATE

So I've been playing around with these rollers for a few weeks - and figured out if you wrap your hair on top of each other (so kind of stacked, instead of wrapped all the way down the roller) you get tighter curls. Here are some pictures! I just took the rollers out, added a little tease and some texturizing spray.
