Probably one of the simplest outfits I’ve ever worn. But these days, I’m leaning more towards simple, simple simple. I bought this white linen top while in NY last month at Aritzia and I love it. And these are those black stretchy joe’s jeans I’ve mentioned before (the high-waisted ones!).
And gosh….looking at these photos is making me miss my long hair!! I just cut 6/7-ish inches off (see yesterday’s post! eeek!). But change is good – it’s fun to try something different (I’ve never had hair this short….EVER)
This oversized slouchy knit sweater might just be one of my absolute favorite purchases so far this season. I LOVE it and am tempted to wear it every single day. I mean, wouldn’t you? Doesn’t it just look cozy and comfy?! And I think it will be fun to play with more layering options (and maybe even some tall boots!) once the temperature drops. I wore it last week with a skirt and booties in this post and I know it will also look adorable with skinny jeans and booties (possibly coming soon?)!
Do you ever feel like just wearing your PJs to the grocery store or corner market? I do. All the time. And thanks to my little (but growing) trench coat collection, all I really need to do is throw one of those babies on over my PJs and I’m all set (as long as it’s not like 100 degrees outside or anything…) The classic trench is one of the easiest and chicest looks around and perfect for this time of year (well at least in the South…) – it’s definitely a closet MUST have if you ask me!
….and have you noticed that I have a little obsession with this leopard clutch? Yeah, it’s literally one of my favorite accessories!
Have you noticed ALL THE RAGE about these plaid blanket scarves? I mean, they’re EVERYWHERE. We can all thank Target for coming to the rescue and creating a look alike of the famous plaid (sold out) scarf from Zara last season (recognize it? – see image below)
and then I want to mention how much I love the ‘I am very busy‘ print. because it’s awesome. Here’s a shot of my desk with it taped to the wall (and it will be part of another post coming soon…)
Have you noticed? I have a slight (okay, more like MAJOR) obsession with plaid and leopard. Together. I can’t get enough of this combo – and I’m loving THIS plaid shirt and leopard clutch together. In fact, I can’t get enough of this leopard clutch with just about EVERYTHING. I’m convinced – it makes an outfit.
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect brown AND black faux fur vest. I see them everywhere, but I’m sort of particular about how I want mine to look. Of course the ones I love are SUPER (like a little absurdly) expensive (exhibit A), so the challenge has been trying to find one that’s a relatively reasonable price AND doesn’t look TOO faux (and some of them are just awful!). Anyone feel the same way?!
Anyway, I found this black one last week and LOVE it. (but warning, this one is not cheap – I think it’s $135) But I linked up several different (very similar) options across different price points below! Have you found one? Spill your secrets with us ;)
I’ve been seeing the brown and brown-and-white-spotted vests everywhere, but not that many girls have jumped on the black fur – I like how it’s a little different. If you ask me, I think both colors are great staples for your fall wardrobe because they could both serve many different purposes and add different touches to an outfit!
So…I actually wore this outfit “out” while I was in Baton Rouge working on a project with my mom last week. I had a super long work day ahead (full of meetings) and it was a friday – so naturally, I wore tennis shoes (I know. unfair. #sorryNOTsorry #PerksOfWorkingForMom).
I ended up working longer than expected and had to rush to dinner (date night!) and the night’s festivities straight from the office. I grabbed a pair of the Scheffy heels (yes, I wear the sample size), took off my puffer vest and wore this little number for the night. It was obviously thrown together, but I LOVE those kinds of looks! They always end up being my favorites ;)
I’ve got a thing for monochromatic looks. Pairing like/similar colors is not only easy, but it’s chic. The trick is doing it right. In my experience, I’ve found that pairing like colors with different textures usually always works. It’s when you try and pair similar colors in similar textures/fabrics where you run into issues – because then it’s almost like you need to have the same EXACT color/material (like a matching set or something…)
I think ice blue is a great neutral and anytime I see something I like in the hue, I’ll usually jump on it. It’s different than your typical neutrals, yet still subtle enough to go with just as much as your other neutral pieces. It’s interesting, unexpected and sleek – I love it (especially ice blue suede!) Oh, and I LOVE it with leather. What do you think?!
