cozy fall style

Now that there’s a bit of a chill in the air, I’m definitely craving cozier clothes, like sweaters paired with jeans and a scarf over a long necklace. But because I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer, I’m not yet inclined to pull out the fall boots. A nice pointed toe flat is perfect for transitional dressing and has the added bonus of just slightly dressing up this cozy look.

my ultimate power outfit: white blazer, killer boots, and the Apple Watch

street style inspired: white blazer, high heeled ankle boots, apple watch, clutch // click for outfit details

This look has pretty much everything I’m obsessing over right now. A white blazer. An Apple Watch. And these killer Altuzarra for Target heeled boots (that I may have gotten up early on Sunday morning to go buy at my local Target). Plus some great distressed denim and a few of my favorite accessories.

And even with all these trends, far from looking like a fashion victim, this outfit screams badass street style. I don’t know where I’d be headed wearing this look, but I want to wear it everyday, because it’s definitely an outfit for someone who is going places and wants to look great while she gets there.

1/ satin collar blazer // 2/ tank top // 3/ ripped boyfriend jeans // 4/ emily necklace // 5/ apple watch // 6/ wings foldover clutch // 6/ altuzarra ankle boot

how to make a tulle skirt appropriate for work

If there was a theme for this week, it might be plaid and cobalt blue. Something about fall just seems to be calling for deeper colors and plaid. (Why is plaid such a thing for fall? All the hot cocoa and hay rides?) This outfit pairs those fall trends with a tulle skirt, taking something that’s a little (ok, a lot) on the extravagant side and making it more work appropriate. And if tulle skirts aren’t really your thing, you could swap it out for dress slacks or a great pair of distressed jeans for a more weekend look.

casual fall style: sweater, distressed denim, and ankle boots

While it’s not exactly cold enough here for this look, those days are just around the corner. The ankle boots are perfect to dress up a pretty basic outfit (though you could certainly pair this with flats as well). And since the sweater is on the chunky side, a long, easy to wear necklace is the perfect throw on and go accessory to finish this look off.

what to wear with your Apple Watch

a professional look that pairs perfectly with your new Apple Watch // click for outfit details

I’m not gonna lie. I originally designed this outfit with a completely different watch. But then Apple released their new Watch yesterday. And I. Want. One.

Expect to see the Apple Watch in at least a few more blog posts. Because once I get my hands on one, I plan on wearing it with everything.

Oh, and if I were wearing this outfit, I’d cuff the jeans, like in this look that inspired this post.

1/ black blazer with contrast // 2/ cotton poplin tunic // 3/ dark denim jeans // 4/ amy necklace // 5/ apple watch //6/ slouchy tote // 7/ patent leather pumps

how to wear a maxi skirt in fall

Maxi skirts are a ubiquitous summer staple. But that doesn’t mean you have to put them away when the temps start to drop. A maxi skirt can transition perfectly into fall. Just swap those sandals for short boots and top that tank with a cardigan (and a scarf if it’s chilly) and you’re all set!

how to wear a statement coat this fall

I always feel a little conflicted at the start of fall. On one hand, it means the end of summer (and warm weather) and that winter is just around the corner. (Winter and I are not really friends.) On the other hand, fall fashion.

And fall really is the perfect time for fashion experimentation. Now that you don’t have to worry about sweating every time you walk outside, it’s easier to play with lots of different looks. Cooler mornings and evenings make layering not only possible, but essential. But, it’s not yet so cold that you need a million layers (and have to fight the desire to even leave the house in the cold).

So bring on fall fashion! Including a fantastic statement coat and some wedge booties. (Definitely my favorite type of heel.) This outfit could be perfect for a fall date night. You would certainly be the chicest person at the hay ride. (Or the football game. Because while I do like football, I like fashion more.)

1/ round collar wool coat // 2/ ripped boyfriend jeans // 3/ sheet sleeve tunic top // 4/ amy necklace // 5/ wings foldover clutch // 6/ wedge bootie

black and white for work (and drinks after!)

It’s Friday, and that calls for an outfit that is simple and chic. A cropped trouser is the perfect way to highlight d’orsay flats and this shirt is just calling for a half tuck. Pair it with a necklace that works whether it’s tucked under your collar or floating on top.

Even though it’s still a little warm here in PA to wear this outfit, I know fall is just around the corner. The leggings give this dress an unexpected, playful pop and the accessories add just the right amount of accent without being overpowering. This outfit would be great for a conference or even at the office!

what to wear to an outdoor estate wedding

I have to admit that I’m feeling a little jealous this week because my sister is in England for a wedding. And I’m pretty sure that it’s at some fancy estate in the countryside. (Or at least that’s what I’m envisioning. Truth is, I was a little too jealous to focus on the details.)

If I were going, this would be my outfit of choice. Something that would look elegant (but not to formal) as I strolled the lawn sipping cocktails.

1/ patio party dress // 2/ jensen flat sandal // 3/ kathrine earrings // 4/ georgia necklace // 5/ wellspring clutch
