1970

_MG_2898There’s always something about fall that makes me reach for flares. A bit of bohemian can be the perfect inflection to a nostalgic fall look.

The easy, breezy 70’s silhouette is made with a flowing blouse and equally billowy flares. In order to modernize the extreme flare jean, opt for a dark wash for an extra ounce of polish. Gold extras add some glamour to an otherwise casual ensemble. (more…)

Stripey + WIWW

WIWW4

Today, I’m taking on a bit sportier of a look that typical aesthetic. I’m not quite willing to trade my pumps for Puma’s quite yet, but a high pony and a sweater tied low on my hips helps exude the more athletic, street-styled vibe.

Tale Of Two Trenches (Collab With Casually Styled)

_MG_3866DSC_0634

Today, I’m teaming up with the lovely Erica, from Casually styled. I came across Erica’s blog a couple months back and was completely enamored by her effortlessly chic aesthetic. Her styling is always on point with an element of je ne sais quoi. We did a “virtual coffee date” a couple weeks back and she’s just as lovely as she is stylish. You can read the post here.

The classic trench is a must-have in any closet. The sleek and chic style is absolutely perfect for fall. So when I encountered a new spin on this timeless staple (in form of a frock) I was all in. (more…)

Leopard Lady

_MG_3701Juxtaposing elements is one of my favorite styling tricks. Today’s ensemble is no exception. A feminine midi skirt is a muted hue is completely contrasted by a leopard top that has an edgy undertone.

A top knot relaxes the look while a plum lip and crossbody bring much-needed color to the look. It’s perfect for a day just strolling around shops in Seattle, which is exactly what I did. (more…)

On Wednesday’s… + WIWW Link Up

WIWW3We (or rather I) wear pink. Yes, that was absolutely a Mean Girl’s reference. I typically am not one for pink, but in alignment with my extremist mentality – I went for it all the way. Ultra feminine pink with crisp white accents gives an homage to being ultra-feminine. (more…)

School Girl Vibes

_MG_4188If there is one piece that creates a “insta-outfit,” it is the shirtdress. One piece fast=tracks you to preppy chic and is perfect for fall.There are so many different ways to style them all year round, but for the cooler months, I love edging up the classic silouette with some over the knee boots.

I scored this Theory shirtdress for a mere $17 via Shop Mieux – my lucky day. I love finding treasures like this piece online because it is just a fraction of the original $150 price tag. (more…)

Autumn Glow + A Giveaway!

IMG_1922When fall is in full force, I always find myself reaching for sweaters and chunky layers time and time again. I love the look of sweater socks tucked into some fab boots, but I hate the bulk it creates.

I’ll give you my secret to tackling this conundrum calf-on… Kuhfs. Its a wrap that clips on to the top of your boots and gives you the illusion of layered without all the extra bulk! The designs are adorable and adds that perfect pop of pattern to any fall or winter look.

Better yet, I’m giving a pair away of the winner’s choice! Scroll down below to enter. (more…)

Punches of Plum

mg_2635Most likely as you’re reading this, I’ll be 30,000 feet above en route back to Seattle for the weekend. Could not be anymore ecstatic to get back to the city I love. Make sure to follow along on Instagram.

Fall is in full force and that means let the jacket addiction begin. Being from the Midwest, I think collecting a chic array to toppers is a must to counteract the dropping temperatures. My newest addition? A Vince Camuto number in plum… *swoon.* You will undoubtably be seeing this piece a lot in months to come.

Candy Colors + #WIWW

WIWW2Like most of the country, we experienced a bit of an indian summer. Warm temperatures with a undertone of brisk fall air, a foreshadowing of what is to come. Once I put away my shorts and true summer pieces, I have a resentment against donning them yet again. My solution is light layers in a playful color combination, one last hoorah of a summer color palate. (more…)
