Fall Trend Du Jour // Very Velvet

The wearing of different fabrics is what makes fall so fun. If you really want to add a level of interest to your wardrobe, velvet will do just the trick. Wear a touch of it on your accessories or ensconce your entire outfit in velvet.¬†It’s texture and saturation of color really add an element of luxury to your look.

OOTD // Tribal With An Edge

I wish that it could still be warm out but you would be comfortable in fall apparel. I know it doesn’t make sense but now that September is here I am starting to itch to war my new fall pieces. But alas, it’s 90 degrees out…

Even though it’s still hot as hell, I get my early fall fix by layering and if you couldn’t tell I have been in love with everything that is a shade of army green. This vest that I have been wearing recently feels like a great piece to slowly transition into the cooler weather, whenever that time arrives. I left the rest of the outfit pretty simple with the exception of a small aztec print due to the asymmetry of the skirt and my new favorite caged heels. Also, my spiky statement necklace helped make this somewhat sexy look a little edgier.

Stay cool everyone, fall will be here in the matter of weeks! xoxo

OOTD // Flowers and Stripes

One of my favorite combinations for summer styling is a crop top and an A-line skirt. It’s flattering, trendy, and easy. What can be not so easy is mixing prints, but if done correctly you can really have an interesting look (in a good way!) The key of mixing prints is balancing print sizes. With separates, one piece needs to have a larger print and the other a smaller. Also, the colors need to correspond (but does not necessarily have to match!) I love the combination of stripes and flowers because it’s a mixture of hard and soft and also because they are my two favorite patterns! Try it out!

Until next time…xoxo

OOTD // Keeping It Simple

Don’t let the calendar fool you. It may be officially September, but we are experiencing a heat wave in Connecticut. Which is good because I know I was starting to feel depressed with “summer ending” since Labor Day is quickly approaching. Being that it’s a holiday week and is in the 90’s, I thought it best to keep my outfit simple. Sometimes you don’t need all the fuss of layers and patterns and all you need are some great staples. You can never go wrong with a basic tee and maxi skirt especially if you pair them with accessories like a hat and metallic sandals. Delicate jewelry like my layered necklace also look stylish without weighing me down during the humidity.

So to those of you fearing fall, let’s embrace these last few weeks of the heat! xoxo

Monday Muse // Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is everywhere you turn. Rightfully so considering she’s currently one of the top paid actresses in Hollywood and is pretty awesome in every way. Besides being an infamous red carpet photobomber, Jennifer also has great style. She’s spoken openly about not becoming a super stick figure to get a movie gig and I love the fact that she embraces her curves with body con dresses and A-line skirts. Even her casual looks are put together in a cool way. Add me to the list of one of the many who have a girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence.

Fall Trend Du Jour // Mad For Red Plaid

There’s something warming about red plaid. I feel like when you just look at the pattern you automatically think of fall and winter style. I know it’s my favorite pattern to sport, either in shoes or sweaters. It’s an edgy yet classic print that is a must have for your colder month wardrobe. And if you don’t like red, there are plenty of¬†other colors the plaid comes in.

Stock up now! As sad as I am to see summer go, fall is right around the corner!

OOTD // Army Green Wrap Dress

I’m seriously obsessed with anything army green. It’s refreshing to have a different neutral in your wardrobe besides black, white, and grey. This dress is super flattering because it’s wrap style helps emphasize your waist without being super tight (and it’s also on sale!) My camel pointed toe pumps are awesome with this look because they are edgy but practical. They can literally go with everything (and they too are ON SALE!) My old color blocked handbag was the perfect accent to this look since there wasn’t a whole lot of pattern going on elsewhere. This look will also transition well into the fall with a leather jacket, tights and booties.

Until next time…xoxo
