It’s been a little busy over at GG lately. Where the heck have I been? Well, what do leggings, fashion week, and a kick-ass fall shopping list have in common? My life, over the past 3 (4? I’ve lost count) weeks. 

So, in case you missed all that jazz, grab yourself a glass of wine (or bottle, this might take awhile). I’m catching you up below! 

Fashion Essential: Black Leggings, 3 Ways

Yes,  we all acknowledge leggings to be the gateway drug that lead to our American Apparel obsession in college, but they’ve come so far since then. Don’t believe me? My gal Stephanie will prove you wrong. She helped us style three amazing looks — who knew basic leggings could be so freaking chic? 

Perfect for a fall afternoon, this look pairs leggings with a geometric poncho, riding boots, and a felt hat that's comfortable and put together. 

This look is sporty yet feminine and is perfect for a Sunday stroll through the park or a post yoga brunch with friends. 

The Everygirl’s NYFW Street Style Report

The newest trends on the runway are fine and dandy, but let’s be honest with ourselves. It’s the street style shots that turn us all into creepy fashion week stalkers. Here are some of our favorite looks shot by the incredible Fiona Melder on the streets of NYC, just for us over at TEG! 

A great matching set makes me giddy! Pair yours with a thicker heel to keep things from looking too

Sometimes the heavy skirts and tight dresses feel like too much. Throw those away for chambray and some distressed denim instead. 

Lady-like with an edge. If midi skirts are too cutesy for your liking pair one with your favorite leather boots and you've gone from classy to sassy. 

Fall 2014 Trends and Essentials 

It’s that time of year again (sigh). The weather in Chicago took a swift turn for the chilly this week and with it went all notions of summer. But when I saw these photos pop into my dropbox, I only had eyes for Pumpkin Spice lattes. Megan is completely killing it with these incredible fall looks.
