casual and classic weekend style

casual classic weekend style: white shirt, distressed jeans, stacking bracelets, and the apple watch // click for outfit details

I’m not sure if it’s the influence of the Apple Watch, the changing of the seasons, or just too much time on Pinterest, but lately I’ve been craving really classic, almost timeless style. I’m also a little obsessed with bracelets right now, both wearing them and designing them. (Again, blame the Apple Watch, since I’ve been thinking about companion jewelry, and the changing of the seasons, since wearing scarves means less focus on necklaces and more on other jewelry.) This outfit fits the bill on both counts and I love how this white button down is more blousy than structured. (Perfect for someone like me, who doesn’t always look that great in a traditional button down shirt.)

As I was putting this outfit together, it started to remind me of Alexander Calder. The bold shapes in the skirt. The tightly coiled spiral in the clutch. And of course, my jewelry, which is definitely inspired by Calder’s own wire jewelry. This outfit would be perfect for an art opening, a dinner party, or just a regular Thursday where you want to feel a little fancy.

My quest to style my new boots continues, and the result here is a work look that shows who’s in charge. Of course, if high heeled ankle boots aren’t to your style (or comfort level), you could swap them out for a great pair of black d’orsay flats or even some kitten heels and this would still be a pretty fantastic work look.

elevated everyday style

an everyday look with attitude: jeans and heeled ankle boots // click for outfit details

Ever since I picked up these killer Altuzarra for Target boots, I’ve been trying to think about how to incorporate them into my everyday style. Because I hate the idea of having to wait for a special occasion to wear shoes this amazing.

For me, incorporating them into my everyday style means pairing them with jeans, a tank, and a cardigan, which is pretty much my go-to uniform once the temps start dropping. And I love how mixing in one kind of out there accessory completely elevates what would otherwise be a pretty basic look.

1/ longline cardigan // 2/ trudy slim jeans // 3/ silk front tank // 4/ emmeline necklace // 5/ droplet bracelets // 6/ wings foldover clutch // 7/ altuzarra ankle boots

Emma Watson has been making headlines lately for her amazing speech at the UN, her poise and wisdom, and for generally being a fantastic role model for women everywhere. So when I came across this outfit, I new I wanted to recreate it.

Despite my love of grey, I opted for more structured navy maxi skirt, which actually gives this outfit a slightly more professional, rather than evening, vibe. Of course, regardless of where you wear this look, you’re sure to look like a put together, sophisticated woman. Just like Hermione. I mean, Emma.

what to wear for a fall day in new york city

perfect for exploring the city // click for outfit details

Whenever I need to refresh and recharge, I head to New York City. My ideal day includes time spent wandering the Met (or another museum if there’s a great exhibition running), then shopping my way between the Flat Iron Building and Union Square before ending up at the amazing bookstore Strand. Whatever your ideal Manhattan day looks like, this outfit would be ideal for traipsing around the city in fall. It’s casual yet dressy and the wedges give the outfit a polished look while still being walkable. (Though you could certainly substitute them for a pair of flats if that’s more your style.)

1/ cocoon coat // 2/ sleeveless blouse // 3/ distressed boyfriend jean // 4/ amy necklace // 5/ mid city coat // 6/ daphne wedge bootie

Patterned pants don’t have to scream casual. Paired with a button down, sweater, and pointed toe flats (my favorite shoe for dressing up any outfit), they can look perfectly polished and professional.
