As we embark on the first few weeks of autumn, the eagerness to dive headfirst into fall apparel is at an all time high. Unfortunately, for most of us, brisk weather is still quite a ways away. In the meantime, a lightweight, warm-to-cold weather scarf is an easy and stylish way to provide the winter-comfort we’re all craving.  There are dozens of ways to wear a scarf, and choosing the right style will make all the difference in making your outfit on trend. For the better part of October, drape your scarves freely around your neck so that both ends fall loosely in the front. Adjust accordingly to leave a generous gap between your neck and the fabric. The longer the scarf, the better. Knotting your scarf at the bottom will also provide a more relaxed visual. As the temperature drops, the scarves should rise, until the weather calls for a snug wrap around the neck. Until then, keep it loose. To see more outfit inspiration on how to style your autumn scarves swing by LaurenConrad.com to check out my latest column.

Have you guys heard about the new WEAR app? I just discovered it over the weekend and am already addicted. It’s a fashion community featuring trendy looks daily by brands and fashion enthusiast all over the world. You can snap photos of items you want to buy while shopping, upload them, and then have friends help you decide what to get or how to style them. You even shop directly from the app too so it makes shopping super easy when browsing what other people are wearing. You can also snap a photo of yourself in the mirror before heading off to school or work and upload it to the app sharing the details of your outfit. Once you've done this, the app will show you how other women have styled those same pieces giving you tons of outfit inspiration! Check out my WEAR profile here. Next time you feel like you're in a fashion rut and need inspiration, just click on this app and you'll be flooded with endless options. And don't forget to upload your favorite outfits each week, so that you can get feedback from you friends!

And the best part... On October 31st one blogger and one lucky reader will be selected to have a look they shared on Wear featured on a page in NYLON Magazine, so make sure you sign up and start using it for a chance to be featured in the mag.

My Vanity Fair Feature

I'm so incredibly honored to make Vanity Fair's list of favorite bloggers for the second year in a row. Without question, none of this would be possible without each and every one of YOU. It's because of your support that I have been able to turn this little dream into a career. I also want to thank my entire New York and LA team for helping me turn Fash into a business beyond just blogging. And most importantly, Miss Lauren Conrad and the rest of the team behind LaurenConrad.com. It has been an absolute dream working alongside each of you fabulous ladies these last two and a half years.

Thanks again, readers. I'd be lost without you! :)

Kelly Clarkson is a Christmas pusher. It's not even October yet and I've already created two holiday playlist. Usually, I have Christina Aguilera to blame for any premature Christmas jam-fest, but this year, the blame falls solely on Miss Clarkson and her Wrapped in Red CD. Darn you, Kelly, and your insanely addictive music and incredible vocal abilities. Needless to say, I've been feeling extra Christmassy, despite the 90 degree temps, and decided to add a little red and green to today's look in the spirit of untimely celebration. 

Speaking of holidays... Shopping for adorable and unique gifts for loved ones is one of the most rewarding (and sometimes frustrating) challenges we all have to face. Thankfully, gift giving just got a little easier. I'm super excited to share the launch of a seriously game-changing gift giving site called, Giftry, which allows you to create curated Giftries (gift wishlists) full of fabulous gift ideas for yourself and your favorite people. I was honored to be one of the Giftry influencers to have the pleasure of playing around on the site before its launch. After using Giftry for the past month, I'm positive you guys will absolutely love it. Giftry makes the seemingly endless gift search fun again. The site pretty much takes the guesswork out of gifting. Below are two of the many boards I've already created, one with gifts that I would love to have (take note loved ones) and one featuring fabulous bridal shower gifts. Join Giftry for free today and be sure to check out my Giftry boards here for more giftspiration!

Swing by tomorrow to see my feature in the September issue of Vanity Fair.. eek!

With my sister’s 21st birthday on the horizon, the search for the ideal getaway has begun. The requirements are simple: something unique, breathtaking, and endlessly fun; a one-stop destination that says, “tropical paradise.” You know what I’m talking about: the kind of artful luxury resort you gaze longingly at on Pinterest, wishing but never truly believing that you could actually visit someday. Well, guess what, island dreamers? The impossible just became possible. Baha Mar, which opens in late spring 2015, is a must-visit destination that is redefining the Bahamas. This new, global-gaming destination, located in Nassau, offers a sense of magic and mystery and all the required gush-worthy elements you’ll be dying to brag about on social media. The Baha Mar Casino & Hotel is the centerpiece of the resort featuring a 100,000-square-foot, Las Vegas–style casino, which is the largest in the Caribbean. It’s filled with authentic people and culture, and the potential to have truly meaningful experiences, all surrounded by magnificent blue waters. Reflecting the soul of the Bahamas at every turn, Baha Mar dazzles with a certain iconic glamour that is poised to reinvent the concept of island luxury as we know it. Want to win a four-day stay at this incredible, new resort? Instagram a photo of your Baha Mar “jet set” style with the hashtags #BahaMarJetSet and #contestentry to be entered for chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime vacation.
