Pretty Holiday Coats

Pretty Holiday Coats

The holiday season is one of my favorite times of years when it comes to fashion! Who doesn’t love an excuse to wear a great pair of heels or a little something sparkly that wouldn’t ordinarily make it out of the closet? I put coats in that category, too. There is no season like the holidays to rock a really pretty coat. These three are the ones that have caught my eye this year. Boasting really awesome colors and fun …

Shop By Color: Olive Green

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 4 comments

I mentioned it a few weeks ago concerning chartreuse green, but I seriously feel like green is about to have a major moment in fashion and design in general. Call this olive green, moss green or army green, but no matter the name it’s seemingly everywhere at the moment. I love how this typically tough, more masculine color seems to be going softer and more feminine. Like this pencil skirt. I’m digging that the rich olive green takes something perfectly …

Gorgeous Fall Lip Color

Gorgeous Fall Lip Color

Written by | filed under Fall, Fashion + Accessories | 3 comments

As I’ve entered my 30s, I’ve found myself wanting to experiment more with lipstick. Actual, real, grown up lady lipstick. I’m a gloss girl through and through. Usually tinted gloss with a good amount of pigment, but I’ve never strayed too far into wearing opaque lipstick. I find it kind of scary! Is that weird? Anyone feeling me? Right now I’m loving these rich lip color shades from Anthropologie, which are pretty perfect for fall and the upcoming holiday season. …

We’re shopping again today! Or, actually, window shopping. We’re absolutely window shopping, at least in my case. I actually avoid shopping just for the sake of shopping, but I do love bringing home something new and pretty for my closet once in a while. Or, more often than not, for the house. If you peeked into my closet you’d find a ton of cute dresses that I’ve amassed over many years. Loads of basics in black and gray. A handful …

Earlier in the year we had a pretty frank conversation about Pantone’s pick of Radiant Orchid as the color of the year, and I believe at that time I confessed that I’m not a huge purple fan. The exception to my purple rule, however, is deep rich eggplant. Especially this time of year! Paired with denim or rockin’ a bold lip, eggplant is just perfect for fall. Ok, I confess. There’s no way I could pull off a dark purple …

Ohhh, fall. You do such crazy things to us. You make cool color loving girls like me want to buy everything orange and gold in sight. In particular right now, this rich and bold shade of autumn orange is just doing me in. Anyone else? My favorite way to rock orange is definitely with a pop of color in my accessories. Usually a great oversized scarf or a cute pair of flats or a little clutch. But I’m also loving …

Jewel tones have always been my favorites and over the last couple of years emerald has been the champion of the cause with me. As we head into fall, I’m loving this rich, gorgeous shade of green. Perhaps not coincidentally, I’m also loving malachite and banana leaf patterns at the moment, which are popping up in more and more places so there’s no stopping my emerald-loving ways at the moment. Pair this lovely linen shirt with your favorite boyfriend jeans …

Loving Metallic Gold Temporary Tattoos

Loving Metallic Gold Temporary Tattoos

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 4 comments

Is anyone else as obsessed with metallic gold temporary tattoos as I am at the moment? This is one of those trends that I think is absolutely amazing and I find myself hoping it sticks around for a long, long time. See, I’m a girl who is regularly awed by beautiful ink work, but ultimately has always been too chicken to commit to a real tattoo of any kind. While completely ink-free, I often find myself toying with the idea …

Shop By Pattern: Summer Stripes

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

Gosh, I love stripes something fierce. And truthfully, while I’m pretty much stripes-obsessed all year long, I particularly love them in the summer months. They have that perfectly preppy feel that I really can’t get enough of during the hot summer months. Paired with denim or linen or chambray, stripes just get the job done for me. Right now as I’m working on holding onto summer tight with both hands, I’m particularly loving these striped out pieces. That duffle bag? …

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

Sometimes a lady just likes to feel feminine and pretty, am I right? And in my book there’s no better color to evoke that feeling than blush pink. I think I love blush best when it’s used as a neutral and paired with other neutrals like black, white and ivory. Can we talk about these booties for a second? I think they’d make the perfect shoe for late summer right on into fall when they’d look adorable with jeans and …

I have a major thing for chambray lately. In reality, I’ve always loved chambray, because it’s the kind of classically preppy and cool and that I love. Lately though? My love affair has reached all new heights. I’m chalking it up to chambray feeling especially perfect during the summer months. It’s chic and elegant while being comfy and casual, too. I know the other day I mentioned wanting to DIY some shibori curtains for our dining room…but maybe I want …

What To Wear: Stars and Stripes

With the 4th of July coming up next week, it’s definitely time to chat about a little patriotic fashion. While I don’t necessarily condone donning stars and stripes head to toe, I am absolutely an enthusiastic advocate of busting out a little red, white and blue for your July 4th celebrations! I usually like to pair a navy sundress or maxi with a great striped scarf, but this year I’m also loving the idea of pairing a swingy striped tank …
