A new decade is right around the corner! I don’t know about you but New Years Eve is one of my favorite nights of the year. NYE is going to be full of excitement for what is to come in 2020 and there is no better way to ring in the new year than with an incredible outfit and great company. Annapolis Towne Centre has you covered for all of your parties from Roaring 20’s themed to watching the ball drop at home with friends. I scoured Boutique Rowe for the most glitzy, sparkly, shiny pieces sure to impress at your New Years Eve party.

I started my search at South Moon Under and was pleasantly surprised at how many sequins I found throughout the store. I was like a kid in a candy store, there were so many options. Honestly, you really can’t go wrong as long as you sparkle it up. I love shopping in South Moon Under because they also carry the appropriate undergarments and shoes you may need. My favorite pieces I found included this amazing two piece glitter set and this colorful sequin mini dress. Layer your outfit with a faux fur coat for an elevated look or dress down a sparkle top with fun flare pants, jeans and a casual jacket. It completely depends on your plans!   

Next, I walked over to Scout and Molly’s, a boutique next to the Baltimore Coffee shop. As a boutique that carries small amounts of the most special stylish pieces you can find around Annapolis, they are a must stop along the way. I’m always impressed by the unique designers they have in the store. Currently, they have the most incredible hand made designer statement earrings that are sure to add flare to any of your outfits. I tried a few pairs on with some pretty metallic and glittery tops. One of my favorite items in this store were a pair of tailored bright red pants. They were perfectly festive and would look fabulous with almost any metallic top. Scout and Mollys is having a great sale right now including some jackets that could be a great addition to any NYE outfit.

Last on my tour was Anthropologie. If you have any 20’s themed parties to go to this New Year, this is a great place to start. They always have trendy, yet timeless pieces. In the back section of their store I found some fun sequin midi length skirts that can be paired with a unique top such as this feathery looking tank. Their headbands are always some of my favorite accessories and I found a few super cute metallic ones to add to your look. My favorite outfit of the day ended up being a comfortable yet super holiday appropriate sequin tee shirt dress from Anthropology. It can be worn with tights and boots or with heels and a long coat over top.

I absolutely love going out with a big bang on December 31st each year. Especially wearing something extra fabulous that you are sure to find at Annapolis Towne Centre!

Believe it or not, Fall is just around the corner. This means one thing and one thing only. No, I’m not thinking pumpkin spiced lattes. To me, the changing leaves and cooler air means stylish and cozy Fall fashion!

It’s not too early to start stocking up on cooler weather wear. Early Autumn is the best time for a transitional style where you can pair some of your favorite summer pieces with some must-have Fall trends. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite outfits from Annapolis Towne Centre to get you jazzed up about the latest and greatest. The hot spot this season is everything in between eye-catching textures and warm fall hues.

One of my absolute favorite trend for Fall is statement bottoms. From leggings to wide-leg culottes, its time to bring the hem down below the knee. My top three pants to look for are faux leather leggings, textured pants and, statement trousers.

Switch your pant game up this season and bring on a blast from the past. That’s right ladies, bell bottoms are back! As a That Seventies Show fan, I hope this trend is here to stay. Pair your flares with some booties, platform sandals or chunky heels. The goal is to elongate the leg to really make the pants pop as the center of attention. I found flares in all textures and colors. Try a classic denim pair or be bold with some leather-like the pair I found at South Moon Under.

Other fun pant finds included statement pants from Anthropologie. These truly unique pieces like the patchwork pattern culottes and blush pink corduroy flare are to die for. Loud pants like these look best with a solid top or sweater. Don’t be afraid to layer your look.

When we think Fall Fashion the first thing that comes to mind is “sweater weather”. How snuggly does that sound? I discovered countless unique sweaters from chunky knitted to oversized and slouchy like this animal print from Scout and Molly’s. You’re going to want to stock up on a variety of sweaters for the months to come.

Fall Styles

Let’s talk patterns. Animal Print is a neutral in my eyes. The best thing about snakeskin and leopard is that it virtually goes with everything. Think this isn’t a trend you can pull off? Try adding a pop of these prints to your style with a clutch from Lou Lou.

Florals are not just a spring fling. I highly recommend including some botanicals to your wardrobe with fall colors like gold, copper and forest green. Scout and Molly’s carries a ton of flowy floral pieces than can be paired with a light jacket.

Suede, leather, and corduroy are in this season. One of my favorite pieces I found was this suede jumpsuit from Anthropologie. Talk about a 1970’s dream! You’ll find these textures sprinkled around the Towne Centre shops. Try a practical leather moto jacket or suede shawl for those cooler autumn nights.

Top off any outfit with some extra bold accessories this season. Heat up your look with a chunky headband, a baker boy hat or felt wide brim from Anthro. Layer on some jewelry and statement earrings this season. Stop into Lou Lou to find countless accessories and wearables to add to your collection.

My absolute favorite thing about fall fashion is that you get to be creative. It’s time to get your wardrobe cool weather ready with all the coziest trends. Trust me, you’re going to want to run (with that pumpkin latte in your hand) to the Towne Centre for all the latest Fall apparel.
