Happy November

Hi everyone Happy November! Sorry I haven't posted in a while I've been very busy. So in this post I would like to review my Hunter boots and show you some cute items for the holiday season. Enjoy :)

So for fall/ winter it's an essential to have a good, warm pair of shoes. My favorite shoes for fall/winter are Hunter boots and L.L Bean duck boots. I haven't gotten bean boots yet so I am only going to be doing a review on Hunter boots.

Hunter boots are rain boots that are comfortable, functional, and fashionable. They come in an assortment of colors and styles. I have a pair of children's black and pink. (Tip: When buying Hunters if your foot is a 7.5 or lower you can fit into kids. They are a fraction of the price.) Hunters are fabulous in any weather! When it gets very cold in the winter you can buy liners for your Hunters that provide an extra layer of warmth. Here's where you can get yours:, Try to get some for a good deal on Ebay

Some of my favorite trends for the holidays this year are...

1. Plaid J. Crew Factory
Factory classic button-down shirt in suckered plaid

Factory classic button-down shirt in flannel

Factory black watch plaid blazer

2. Sparkles!

Fall Outfits. Staying warm and stylish.

Hey everyone so fall is here and winter is approaching so I thought it would be great to show you how I dress stylish and stay warm! This post will be some recent OOTD's from the fall season, and some other tips on how to dress warm and cute. Enjoy! Also if there's anything specific you want to see on my blog comment on this post or on Instagram (belleoftheball45) and let me know!

Layering! Don't be afraid to layer warm pieces that look cute. Oxfords under sweaters look adorable, and very warm. Also it's my favorite to throw a vest on over my layered pieces. Here's some examples:

As you can see I love wearing hats, scarves, and when it gets a little colder I will start wearing gloves. Boots are an essential for fall/ winter. Some fabulous boot choices include Hunters, L.L. Bean duck boots, and Ugg boots will all keep you warm and looking stylish. Layering sweaters with anything is a great choice! Leggings are my favorite choice in fall winter because they are functional and adorable (especially fleece lined ones). Hope you enjoyed! Any questions feel free to comment!
