All American

Happy Friday everyone! I am so, so, SO happy it's a 3 day weekend, and it's looking like it will be a warm one!

In the spirit of the holiday weekend, I decided to get a little patriotic with my outfit, of course with my own personal touch. A sequined jacket, that is beautifully tailored, in red, white, and blue, is the perfect topper to an all denim ensemble. Also, I chopped off a good amount of my hair- it feels so healthy now!

Tough In The Office

I found my old torn up muscle tee a few weeks ago, and have been wearing it non stop. I thought that wearing it to the office would be completely inappropriate, but then I decided to go with it and see if I could make it work. Turns out, wearing a leather jacket, and tucking it into a pencil skirt actually camouflages how beat up the tee was. Tough girl chic in the office was a hit!

Florals and Stripes

Inspired by this J. Crew catalog look, I decided to try out a more casual, weekend variation with my stripes and florals. Turns out this striped and floral combo is super easy and fun to pull off. I love that I invested in these J. Brand jeans, and even if the floral trend dies off, the frequency of how often I wear them won't!

Shirt Dress Over Jeans

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was nice and relaxing. I was able to catch up on some errands, which were being very neglected.

I decided to try wearing a shirt dress over some skinny jeans to see how the pairing looked. I like how it turned out, though I think to really pull of the effect I need a longer shirt dress, where the bottom of the front is a little more open to create a more sleek look.

Dress: Anthropologie. Jeans: Gap. Shoes: Zara.

Trend-Spotting: Chelsea Boots

The Chelsea style boot is the perfect late Summer to Fall transition. Wear it now with mini skirts and cutoffs, and in the Fall, and even Winter, pair them with anything from skinny jeans, to maxis. They are the perfect all weather, always comfy, almost always appropriate boot!

Another Show Outfit

Like I said, I've been going to A LOT of shows lately, so here is another recent look. I've stuck to my formula of jeans, statement heels, a simple top and a leather jacket. It's been working quite well thus far.

Well it only took me about 2.5 seconds to go out and find myself a jumpsuit after this post. I'm too good at shopping, and I swear this is my last purchase of the month. AND next month.

Since the pattern on this one is very loud, I decided to tone it down with a black blazer, and sandals, and keep the accessories to a minimum. I love how it turned out, and it's only gotten me thinking about all the other ways I can wear this, to get the most use out of it before the dead of Winter hits.

Blazer, Jumpsuit, and Clutch: Anthropologie (jumpsuit). Shoes: Modern Vintage. Necklace: Vintage.

BTW I'm back from MAGIC, and I have to say it was awesome, but so, so tiring!

Fall 2012 Look Book: Club Monaco

Club Monaco's Fall 2012 Look Book has me so super excited for Fall! Great thing is that it certainly feels like Fall here, so I will be making an effort to incorporate some of these elements into future outfits. The nubby knits, hint of sequins, and classic tailored coats all look fabulous in this collection.

And just FYI, I'll be back in town tomorrow, and outfit posts will start running regularly. Thanks for reading!!

Style Love

Just wanted to quickly share this photo of Solange Knowles that has me inspired. It's been saved on my desktop for a while, and I have no idea where I found it, but her look is so crisp, clean, and still fun! I love it. Of the two sisters, I think she has the better style, and no wonder she is Madewell's newest celebrity spokeswoman.

Soft and Hard

Happy Monday! I have a very exciting week ahead of me. I'll be going to MAGIC Trade Show for the first time ever for work! It'll be a crazy 48 hours, but I couldn't be more thrilled to have the opportunity. Btw, MAGIC is where all clothing vendors meet in Las Vegas and clothing companies can buy for the upcoming season.

Anyway, as for my outfit, I got this J Brand jacket from work, and it is the perfect casual piece to toughen up any look. I thought I would pair it with my flowy, floral maxi skirt for a great soft/hard contrast. It turned out to be the perfect Saturday look for a lunch and shopping date.

Trend-Spotting: Metallic Block Heels

(Dries Van Noten)

Metallic block heels, especially sandals, are the perfect transition from Summer to Fall. The block heels not only provides all day comfort, but adds a fun element to transitional sandals.
