• Fall Fashion: Leather (Real & Faux)

    While not exactly a new trend, leather is EVERYWHERE and I am in to it! I have been trying to find a pair of leather leggings… do I bite the (very big dollar) bullet and go real or find a great pair of faux… or as I am seeing everywhere “Vegan Leather”. That makes me chuckle for some reason. Upgraded from faux leather? But, it doesn’t stop at just leggings, leather is finding it’s way to t-shirts, skirts, puffer coats (I have one- swoon!), work-out gear, accessories and of course embellishments. Here are some of the items I wouldn’t mind adding to my closet below. (And, yes… there is a…

  • The Best Little Knit Blazer Styled 3 Ways

    I purchased this little J Crew knit blazer this Spring and adore it! It seems to go with everything, is light enough that I don’t get hot but it also keeps me warm on chilly days. The original pink that I have is sold out in a few sizes but the camel is a great option and available in sizes xxxs-3x; so I will use that color to style the blazer into three different outfits!

  • Fall Fashion: Foliage Color Palette

    Thank you so much to everyone who expressed such kind words after this week’s earlier post… it is so appreciated. Now, on a lighter note, because I have to keep the rest of this week light… I love scrolling through a new season’s fashion… Lately I have noticed that there are so many pieces that appeal to me that are the colors of Fall foliage. Not my typical color palette but all the beautiful warm tones make you think of pumpkin picking, apple cider and raking leaves. I love it all paired with denim, navy and ivory! Below find the pieces that I am loving in this foliage color palette!…

  • Fall Fashion: The Sweatshirt Dress

    One of my favorite new pieces for Fall is undoubtedly the Sweatshirt Dress (I own #1 pictured above!). Incredibly comfortable and cozy while still looking quite put together. I pair mine with sandals while it is still warm and will move on to flats and sneakers and then booties with tights/leggings. There are some great options out there… some high end and very excitingly some really cute options for under $100!

  • Carbon38 Sale!

    I need some new workout gear STAT. Most of it is old, gross or just plain too big (thank you, Rachel, I adore you!) so I have been slowly trying to rebuild the workout wear section of my closet. Workout clothing isn’t cheap! But there are days that I wear it from when I roll out of bed until it’s time to go to bed… so I can spring for a few nicer pairs of leggings that will last and also look good when I am running ALL the errands on those marathon days. Carbon38 is a awesome online shop for workout goods (and also leisurewear) and they happen to…

  • Summer of the jumpsuit…

    I have been loving jumpsuits since last Fall and I can safely say that they are officially the the easiest outfit of the Summer. Like with a dress, you can put together an outfit in no time; they are so simple to dress up or down. Unlike a dress, you can pretty much do anything in a jumpsuit… run after a small child, easily sit in the grass or the sand and most importantly (at least to me!) you can ride a bike in a jumpsuit! (Okay, maybe I would not ride a bike in #10, but it is my mode of summer transportation most nights!) Cropped, wide leg, prints,…

  • Summer Finds For Under $100!

    I find that you can really get some cute, fun, affordable clothes and accessories in the Summer! Warm weather gear gets a little beat up in the sun and heat (and salt water and chlorine!) so who wants to make too many major investments anyways? See below for some GREAT Summer picks with price tags that will surprise you! #2 is my favorite, I bought it out in LA last weekend and have already worn it twice! It is fabulous!

  • May Favorites…

    May is all about getting ready for summer right? Or at least getting my closet ready for summer. I have been on a major purge lately getting rid of things we don’t love or use anymore (read HERE), and my closet has been hit hard (more on that in a future post!)… so I need some fun replacements! Also, have been on a reading tear, I even got to meet the lovely sisters behind the Liv Constantine hit The Last Mrs. Parrish, #12 on the list! Without further ado… my May favorites!
