It’s official! Summer is over and it’s the first day of the Fall season. Fall is my absolute favorite month for many reasons. I love the cooler temperatures, the beginning of the holiday season, the change in foliage, and all the new Fall trends! Below is a quick cheat-sheet on what’s big for this season as well some affordable & wearable items that would be a great addition to mine, and your, wardrobe. This list is not definitive, however, throughout the season I’ll update more trends that are making their way from runway to real world.
1. 50 Shades of Grey
Grey is one of Fall’s hottest hue’s…in every shade. Layering shades of grey was huge on runways & it’s easy to re-create off the runway. Grey is a color that flatters every skin tone & is versatile to wear. You can add a pop of color to an all-gray ensemble or use gray as a base. I’m looking forward to mixing variations of grey hues to create perfect Fall look.
2. Hello, Moto!
Live on the edge! If you can’t commit to full-blown motorcycle chic, add a motorcycle jacket or bootie to create a unique look. Take a psychedelic print or dark florals and pair it with an edgy moto piece.

3. Knit Whit
Knits are a Fall staple, however this season, the chunkier the better. If you’re in Los Angeles like me, wearing knits may be a challenge, however the night’s get chilly enough to invest in at least one knitted piece. Coincidentally, bold turtlenecks are also another major Fall trend! I selected a couple dresses I simply fell in love with, however a basic knitted sweater or cardigan is also a great way to incorporate this trend.
4. Hard Metal
This may be my favorite trend…ever. I love adding hardware to almost everything I wear. Whether I added a studded clutch or boot, I always manage to add some sort of metal to my looks. Not only is metal a major trend, metallics are all over the runways. From gold to bronze to silver, metallics are not just for your hardware on your accessories.
This is just one post of what to see & possibly wear this Fall! Thanks for reading
Last night I invited to the Juicy Couture x Kohl’s event at one of LA’s most unique homes; The Sheats Goldstein Residence. Overlooking the city lights of Los Angeles while sipping white wine, listening to tunes & mingling with some of my other fellow bloggers, I was able to experience the excitement of this pretty epic collaboration. I loved the floral wall embellished with Swarovski crystals & the cool idea of InstaPrint. InstaPrint prints Polaroid-like stickers based off a certain hashtag: #JuicyKohls. You can go on Instagram (follow me @LeFashnMonster) and search the hashtag for more images from the event.
I didn’t take an outfit post because I came straight for work (I’m a Marriage & Family Therapist) & didn’t have time to change.Read more
Okay, it’s not really the new black, but the T.V is show premiering it’s new season this week…and for that, I’m happy! I know it’s been awhile, but it’s been one roller coaster of a month. As much as I love fashion and blogging, the mental health field is where my career and future lies. I have working toward building my name in the mental health community and working through getting my intern number and bulking up on clients to get my 3,000 hours done so I can open my practice within the next two years.
Anyhow, I’ll be posting more often though. I do miss the excitement of dressing up and not wearing suits all day!
I’m not usually one to wear too much color, so going all in on one color was a risk for me! I will admit that I absolutely love this color and this style. Two piece looks I love to wear but sometimes finding pieces that just work well is hard, luckily this set from AMI CLUBWEAR came together and fit like a glove!
Alright, as much as I love the idea of ridin’ dirty on a Harley, I probably wouldn’t be able to maneuver one. I have rode on a bike, so fun! Today was casual and I really miss being casual. I’m always working so slacks and button up’s have been my uniform. Now that it’s the weekend I can play! I love these motorcycle leggings so much, I am so happy I got a chance to wear them again. I’m a sucker for a loose denim shirt and white tank. It’s so “hipster” but hipsters don’t have big blonde hair, so I can pull this off without feeling too trendy.

My birthday is tomorrow and I haven’t even thought about what to do, where to go, or anything! It’s been such a crazy month and I realize, a good movie, a glass of wine, and pajamas might just have to be the plan for my Saturday night! But that’s okay, I get to see some girlfriends for dinner tonight and I’m looking forward to it. Today I decided to wear two of my favorite things: sequins and leather. It may be a bit much, but I couldn’t even tell you how fun it was to wear this out for a day of shopping.
Happy Friday to you all!
Leatherette pants: H & M, Heels: Saint Laurent, Sunnies: Celine, Sequined Jacket: Mango
Last night I went to a holiday party for the old boutique I used to work at and I couldn’t find a top I liked in my closet, so…I went to my mom’s closet and found this amazing sheer grommet detailed top. Naturally, it was black (I promise, some more colorful posts are coming). I loved the new leggings I got too, they have a fun motorcycle appeal to them but most of all, I just loved a reason to get dressed up. I apologize for the lack of scenery in my posts, I’ve been taking pictures quickly and haven’t had time to plan anything out, but I’m working on it :). Happy Saturday!

I know that sweats aren’t necessarily meant to be worn outside, let alone with heels, but today I broke the rules. I won’t lie, I felt pretty liberated as this style is so out of my comfort zone. I was lucky enough to snag these amazing heels from Shoedazzle which shockingly worked perfectly with this look.
I don’t typically go for rompers, but I couldn’t the resist the flower power of this one! I love the girly print and paired this romper with some nude heels that had a little personality to add some edge. I can’t believe it’s almost August and that it’s almost Fall! I hope you’re all having an amazing day <3.
This weekend I went to my boyfriend’s step dad’s daughter’s wedding and it was such a blast! Funny thing is, I had nothing to wear until the morning OF the wedding. Leave it to men to tell you ONE week in advance (I started work last week and have finals). Regardless, I had the best time dancing, drinking and eating. My favorite part of the wedding was seeing my boyfriend all dressed up!
With black and white being a major trend this spring/summer, I felt this dress was ideal. It was still classic with a nice edgy twist. Of course, to add more of my personality, I had to wear these lace up heels to complete the look.
