Fall is the perfect time of year to layer up with cozy sweaters, warm outerwear, and chic boots. Lily Boutique has the best selection of cute fall outfits for you to choose from! If you’re in the market for something a little dressier, be sure to check out our cute fall dresses too!

Whether you’re going on a hayride, making s’mores, or cozying up by a bonfire, any of these cardigans, sweaters, or coats will keep you warm– and adorable– at the same time! Layer a cardigan sweater over a dress for a polished look.  You can also pair all our cardigans and tops with denim or leggings and the Kimberly Riding Boots or Rebel Without A Cause Studded Black Boots.

Cozy Cardigans:

We love the neutral combination of black and beige in several of these cardigans.  Pattered and striped cardigans are trending this fall, and these are all great wardrobe staples you’ll be able to wear again and again.  They look great with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses, and boots.

 

We love the fringe on this adorable cardigan! Show off all your true colors in this bright and bold multi-colored graphic cardigan sweater. The True Colors Graphic Cardigan Sweater is made of a knit cotton blend fabric. It has an open cardigan design with a beige background and black, orange, hot pink, and burgundy designs throughout. Beige fringe at the hem of the dress adds a laid-back feel to this sweater. The True Colors Graphic Cardigan Sweater is the perfect wardrobe staple for layering.

 

These beautiful sweater cardigans are on SALE!!  They are a steal at only $31.95!!  The Soft Stripes Cardigan Sweater has an open cut with a striped design throughout.  It is available in two color options!

 

 

This is a great open cardigan that works well for business or casual wear. The Loosen Up Open Cardigan is made of a flowy fabric. It has a loose, open front design and a front pocket on each side. One thing we love about this cardigan is that each sleeve has a button on it, allowing you to roll the sleeves up and wear them at a three quarter length if you prefer.

 

Fall Outerwear:

The unique combination of olive and black combine effortlessly to create a chic, neutral jacket. We also love the fashion-forward asymmetrical hemline! The Colorblock Olive and Black Asymmetrical Crossover Jacket is made of a heavy substantial structured cotton blend fabric. It has a rounded collar, crossover moto cut, and long sleeves. Panels of black faux leatherette at the shoulders, sleeves, and on each side of this jacket add contrast to this look. Exposed gold zippers decorate the front of the jacket and each side as well. This unique jacket is perfect for Fall and Winter. Pair it with a fitted black tank or tee and denim or black skinnies for a chic look with an edge.

 

This amazingly flattering crossover jacket is all you need to look chic and fashion-forward. You can toss this jacket on with denim or black skinnies and boots and instantly look polished and put-together.

 

This animal-friendly jacket features a fitted and cropped shape with crossover zip front, three front pockets, and four silver studs on the collar. You’re sure to wear it with everything in your closet for years to come and the neutral beige color goes with everything.

Or dress it up for work with black trousers and a fitted black top. It also pairs well with skirts.

These adorable rainboots are cute to wear rain or shine! The Rain or Shine Quilted Boots are made of a jelly material that is water resistant.

These cute Fall boots have the perfect extra touch in the back–the bright red stripe that adds the perfect pop of color. The On The Red Line Zip Back Boots are made of animal friendly vegan leather. These boots have a rounded toe, a slight heel, and two buckles on the outside. The best part of these boots has to be the bright red stripe down the back with an exposed zipper. These boots are the perfect wardrobe staple to pair with anything in your closet! They look great worn with denim, leggings, and sweaters.  They come in three great color choices: Cognac, Beige and Grey.

 

 

These faux shearling boots will keep your feet nice and toasty on chilly days—and we love the unique cognac color. The Cognac Shearling Lined Boot is made of all vegan-friendly man-made materials.

Shopping online for cute purple dresses is a breeze here at Lily Boutique!  The color purple has been associated with royalty and power for centuries. Purple’s elite status stems from the rarity and cost of the dye originally used to produce purple garments. In fact, Queen Elizabeth I forbade anyone except close royal family members from wearing it.

Luckily, you don’t have to be royalty to wear the color purple anymore–although it may make you feel bold and powerful!  It can also be a fun, girly color to wear.  There are so many different shades of purple to choose from, so there is something that flatters everyone! Choose from pale lavender or bold royal purple to look stunning all year round.

The Luscious Lilac Capsleeve Floral Print Dress is perfect to wear on your next night out!  It is made of a slightly textured fabric with a lilac purple background and multi-colored floral print throughout.  The criss-cross design at the neckline and fitted short mini cut creates a flirty look! Any of these dresses are girly and sexy options to wear on date night or on a night out with friends.

 

We love our Beaded Bliss Embellished Dress in Lilac!  This pretty dress has a simple classic cut amped up with unexpected beaded detailing at the bust to give it an extra special touch.  We think this would make a beautiful bridesmaid dress or just a fabulous party dress to wear to any social event. Lilac is a great soft, muted shade of purple that manages to be super flattering on so many women! Mixing and matching various shades of purple would be a cute idea for bridesmaids.

The same gorgeous print comes in a romper version that works so well as a swimwear cover-up in the summer or on vacation.

 

The Flirt and Flutter Chiffon Dress in Royal Purple is a timeless piece that can be worn for years to come.  This dress would be great for dancing at any party!  It has a sweetheart neckline and flutter chiffon capsleeves with an attached flowy cut chiffon skirt. Any of these dresses would be great for bridesmaids as well. Pair them with nude pumps or heels for a chic, understated style.

 

The Flower Power High Low Dress in Lavender is a beautiful with its muted pastel flower print!  This is a girly dress that would be perfect for any summer outdoor event.  It has a sweetheart neckline, empire waist and an attached high low skirt with an invisible layer of tulle underneath for volume.  Add a great pair of sandals or nude wedges to complete this cute girly look!

 

Our Bold and Beaded Maxi Dress in Lavender Grey will make you stand out at any event you attend!  This dress has a gorgeous and unique pattern of rhinestones and delicate seed beading on the bust.  Pair this dress with a beaded clutch and metallic strappy heels.

Top 10 Dorm Room Essentials

Ready or not, it’s time to get in back-to-school mode and to start thinking about your new dorm room!  Summer is fading and school time is upon us.  We have put together a top ten list of essentials for all your dorm room needs!  Whether you are a first year freshman or it’s your last year of grad school, it’s time to get your dorm room ready.  Be sure to check out our “Cute Dorm Room Essentials” Board on Pinterest!

 

1.Bedding

Dorm rooms are blank canvases that are great for you to add your own style and personal touch to.  A nice set of bedding is the first way to make your boring dorm room into something spectacular!  We love all the new cute prints, bright colors and patterns of bedding.  Check out our Pinterest board “Cute Bedding” to see all the beautiful styles we chose for your new cozy corner! Our blog post on Cute Dorm Room Bedding also features some of our favorite dorm room bedding sets.

Your college dorm room is the perfect place to show off a more sophisticated, adult style than the cutesy bedding you had back at home while you were growing up! Some of our favorite stores to shop for bedding at various pricepoints are Wayfair, Target, and Anthropologie.

2. Storage

There is never enough closet and storage space in a dorm room.  This is where you have to really think and utilize every square inch of your room.  Storage boxes have come a long way from boring solid colored plastic bins.  You can find some cute and stylish printed and patterned baskets, hampers, boxes, and trunks for all your stuff.

Another great space-saving idea is to get posts or risers to put your bed up on and store stuff underneath it!

storage collage

 

3. Bathroom and Shower Supplies

The best thing to use for your shared bathroom is a great waterproof shower bag.  These are the perfect way to keep all your shower and bathroom essentials in one bag.  Keeping all of your bathroom supplies organized and together is a must when sharing.  We have some great options pinned to our Pinterest Board “Cute Dorm Room Essentials.”

4. Laundry Accessories

Having a great laundry hamper and baskets are dorm room essentials.  A hamper with wheels and even a zipped top is great for toting back and forth from room to room.  Travel size laundry detergents, wrinkle releasers and static sprays are also good and do not take up much space.landry collage

 

5. Dorm Room Decorations

When shopping for your dorm room decorations, it’s fun to have fun and think outside of the box for cute, inexpensive ideas.  A full length mirror decorated with your personal touch is a cute idea.  You can also print your pictures and arrange them in collages on your wall in different shapes.  Hanging string lights and curtains for a canopy style bed would also add a decorative flair to your new space. Separate your space from your roommates’ space and create privacy with a curtain or large piece of colorful fabric.

6. Seating

Seating is a necessity for any dorm room unless you want to sit on the floor or have everyone pile on your small bed when they visit.  A great way to utilize space and have extra seating is using storage boxes and trunks as benches. Foldable papason chairs or oversized bean bags are also cute and comfy alternatives. Some of them can fold out into a makeshift bed so that you can have friends come and visit you in college.

7. Study Aids

The real reason you are in college is to get good grades and focus on your studies.  Having a cute and organized desk space will make studying and concentrating less stressful.  A great desk lamp or monogramed accessories will add a personal touch to your study area.  Simple and sweet bins and paper organizers will help keep all your notes and research in order.  Hanging a small dry erase board to remind you of upcoming deadlines and events is another cute touch to your desk space.

8. Mini Kitchen

Dorms do not have kitchens, of course- but you will want to create your own mini kitchen and have a mini dorm fridge.  This way you can snack and eat in your dorm and not have to rely on leaving your room for every meal.  Travel size cooking accessories are great for your small space.  Small microwaves and coffee pots are also very convenient. If you have a roommate, make sure to coordinate what you’re each going to bring, so that you won’t have doubles!

9. Cute Rugs

Many dorm rooms have cold hard tile floors, which makes adding a cute plush rug to your checklist a necessity.  Your rug will become the heart of your dorm room and will make it feel more comfy and cozy than any other part of the room.  You can add your personal flair with a designer rug, fuzzy plush rug or a standard area rug.

10. Lily Boutique Dresses

Of course you’re going to need a few new dresses to start this school year off with a bang!  Lily Boutique has so many cute affordable dresses for all your new college social events.  At our low prices you can get several cute new looks to add to your closet!  Whether you want some sweet and simple dresses or sexy and chic party looks, our online boutique will help you find your style!

dreamcatcher

 

Dream Catchers are not only a beautiful home decor piece-they stem from rich Native American traditions.  The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.  One element of the dream catcher is the loop. The hoop symbolized strength and unity which is held to a high esteem by some Native Americans of North America.

This beautiful piece of art will look stunning in your home, bedroom or even dorm room!

 

We want to share one of our favorite tutorials that we discovered!  You can find the step-by-step tutorial at Patternrevolution.com.

There are several different ways to make a dream catcher. The basics you will need are:

  1.   Fabric scraps
  2.   Extra trims
  3.   Scissors
  4.   Embroidery floss
  5.   Embroidery needle
  6.   Brass macrame ring (hoop)
  7.   Doily* (These will stretch when you attach them, so make sure it is smaller than your ring.)
  8.   Fabric glue
  9.   Beads and feathers (optional)

 

Step 1:  Pick out all of your fabric, your doily, and supplies.

Once you have your fabric and detailing picked out you want to wrap your hoop.

Step 2:  Wrap your ring

Pick out one or two of the strips you want to use around the ring.  If you are doing one of the bigger sizes, you will need two to cover the whole thing.

Take your strip and glue it to your ring at an angle.  After it dries, just start wrapping it around the ring.  When you are done, just glue it down.  There is no right or wrong way to do this part.  You can even use other materials instead of fabric.

Step 3:  Putting in your center.

This is probably the hardest step.  Get your doily, embroidery floss, and needle.  I like doing this on a flat surface to start it, but then you can totally just do this step on the couch or chair or whatever.

Place your doily in the center of the ring.  Take your floss and thread in through the needle.  Tie the end of the floss to the ring, but use a knot that you can untie at the end.  Start “sewing” it onto the loop.  This is sort of like a whip stitch.  It is up to you how you want the stitches spaced out.  I like to do it on each petal.

Remember your doily is going to stretch so make sure you pull your floss tight enough!  When you finish it up, there is a little wiggle room so even it out.  At the end, take the part that is tied to the loop and untie it.  After that, tie it to the other end of the string.

Step 4:  Decorate

Take that awesome pile of fabric strips and lace trims, ribbons, etc. and get ready to attach them!  Take a strip and fold it in half.  Loop it around the ring.

Put all your fabric pieces on first.  After you get your fabric strips on, add in your trims and lace.  This is where your creativity will shine through. Add in different laces and ribbons for texture. Once they are all attached, you can cut the fabric pieces at an angle.

Step 5:  Add extras

Now is the time to add the optional beads or feathers!

 

The below picture shows a step-by-step way to create a basic dream catcher.
