New scarves & Flipping Through: Stylewatch October 2012

I love scarves – they are an easy way to incorporate color into my outfit – and they’re much softer and warmer than necklaces! I purchased these 2 recently from Winners – they’re both Indian-inspired – I especially love the mint one with tiny pom-poms!

Winners mint green scarf, Old Navy sweater, Garage Olive skinny jeans, Old Navy ballet flats

Don’t you love flipping through a magazine with friends: pointing out your favorite looks and wishlist items, then tearing out pages for future inspiration? Grab a mug of Green Tea and see what caught my attention in this month’s Stylewatch magazine:

Can’t go wrong with Rachel Bilson on the cover – she’s one of my ultimate style icons!

Her style secrets – I want to try Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers – I’ve never used them, even as a tween!


Classic example of Rachel’s effortless style –  she always strikes the right balance between girly and edgy.

Reese Witherspoon’s outfit is my favorite look from this issue – so casual yet put together – and easy to replicate!

Also like Jessica Alba’s casual style – super-cute! Wish I could pull off pink jeans – they’d look ridiculous on me!

A collection of Jessica’s casual outfits – I like the middle one with the dark J Brand jeans, cream sweater and cognac boots. She loves her scarves even more than I do!


Rachel Bilson is just SO beautiful – love her simple yet stunning hair & make-up.

Sienna Miller has similar hair & make-up to Rachel – although she’s looking a little tired here. Still – I love the tousled waves and subtle, fresh make-up.

Lauren Conrad recommends the Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Powder in Terre Epice in her monthly column – am definitely going to try it since NARS Laguna didn’t work out for me.

And lastly – I LOVED seeing Christy Turlington in this issue – I loved the 90s supermodels and it’s great that they’re still in the spotlight. And although her lashes don’t look that natural – the Mega Plush mascara is definitely on my “to-try” list.

Hope you enjoyed flipping through with me. All images except the first are from People Stylewatch October 2012.

Are you a huge scarf fan?

    Love scarves too! You'd think I actually live back east in cold climate because I own so many ;)This issue of Style Watch was my favorite! Of course, the main reason being that I have a girl crush on Rachel Bilson. I really admire her style because she is a fellow petite 😉 I really need to try the Dr. Pepper lip smackers too! I used some of them growing up, but I don't recall ever trying that one. That along with the mega plush is on my shopping list.

      I know – my scarf collection is out of control – luckily they don't take up too much space, so I don't feel too guilty!I thought of you as soon as I saw that Rachel was on the cover – I've loved all the posts you've done with her on your blog 🙂

    I love scarves too (I think I may have an obsession)! That mint colored one is adorable!

    I am in love with scarves – luckily it gets cold quick in Wisconsin so I've been wearing mine heaps!…and for what it's worth, I think if anyone could rock pink jeans it would be you. I do love Jessica Alba's fur vest though – it looks so comfy!

      Thanks Franziska – when I inevitably purchase pink jeans – I won't feel so funny wearing them! I don't have any plans to purchase any…but if I ever find the perfect pair…wearable or not – I won't be able to resist LOL!

    I love your new mint scarf!! So cute! I wish there were more occasions that I could wear scarves in Florida (doesn't stop me from buying them, lol). Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba are two of my favorite current fashion icons! I would love to shop their wardrobes. 😀

      Yes – let's go shop their wardrobes together…do you think they'd mind LOL? I don't even think they'd notice 😉

    You are the scarf master! I have been more confident with my scarves since you sent me that tidbit. 😉

      Glad you liked the link – I'd never have figured out how to wear the mint scarf without it (it's more square than rectangle) 😀
