Fall Neutrals

10/28/15



These pictures were snapped before I headed to work. I wish I could wear this darling hat in the office all day, but it's not exactly business casual. Once it starts getting colder, I am usually reaching for neutrals. Grey, blacks, navy, tan, etc. This outfit seemed perfect for one of the first colder days of the Fall. Grey and black with a necklace that served as a good pop of color.

So, about this top. I've been searching for the perfect peplum top for a while. One that is flattering but in a solid color. One that can be worn to the office or a night out, and one that can be dressed down with jeans. I scooped this peplum top up at the Gap a few weeks ago and it complimented these flats that I wish I wore more often!






What are your plans for this Halloween weekend? I don't have my costume yet... talk about last minute! I'll have to throw something together! Have a great weekend. Thanks so much for reading :)

Loosey Goosey

10/22/15




I love the fit of this dress. I love the looseness of it, how billowy it is, and how it just hangs on my body. I'm a sucker for dresses (and tops) that are a little baggier! I purchased this dress a while ago... Probably back in the Spring. I've worn it non-stop since then, and it's only just making it's debut on the blog now! It was cute at a baseball game this summer with a hat and slip-on sneakers. And it's just as a cute for a day at the office with more structured shoes and a bright necklace. I actually wore this dress just yesterday with a bright scarf and grey booties! 








How great is this uncharacteristically warm Fall weather? I'm loving it, buuut... all my Summer clothes are in storage! I'm making it work with some mixing and matching, and ended up grabbing a few lighter skirts from the attic! I'm looking forward to it getting a little colder so I can share some of the gorgeous cold weather pieces I recently purchased. So, stay tuned! 

What are you up to this weekend? Jessi and I have a fun little weekend planned here in Jersey and I can't wait to show her around. We have eating a lot of pizza on our agenda. Along with checking out some vintage shops, and record stores. Have a great weekend and thanks so much for reading :)

Tie-Dye

10/7/15


 


I wore this denim dress on a Friday - when it's acceptable to dress a little more casually in the office. That wasn't the first time I wore this dress. I've worn it to a company BBQ a few months ago, a summer night out, and to a family party. I'm obsessed with the tie-dye pattern. I had actually been looking for a denim dress for a long time, so I was really happy when I found this at Loft (and it was on sale!). Unfortunately, it's really a Spring/Summer dress, so I'll have to put it away for the next couple of months. I guess that gives me a good excuse to buy a Winter appropriate denim dress! 



How great is this necklace? It's one of my favorites! The day I wore it, I got so many compliments. I guess you can say it's a conversation starter. It's stunning. The best type of accessories are the type of accessories that take a simple outfit up 10,000 notches. This necklace did just that.



How was your week? I still miss the warm weather, but I'm slowly getting used to the idea of Fall. Have a great week and thanks so much for reading! :)

Kaleidoscope

10/1/15




This skirt reminds me of a kaleidoscope I used to have when I was a kid. Those bright colors and patterns reminded me of this beautiful skirt that I scooped up at Francesca's a few weeks ago. As I mentioned before, I still really can't let go of summer, so I wore the skirt with sandals, a basic black tee and a bold lip. When I'm finally ready for fall, I'll throw on some tights, booties, and a sweater to wear with this skirt. Maybe a leather jacket too. But for now, it's bare legs. 

I love bold skirts and dresses. I love that extra punch. When I wear a skirt or a dress with a heavy pattern, I try and keep my accessories minimal. A dainty necklace or pendant can go a long way :)





How was your week? Aside from working, I indulged in a Pumpkin Spice Latte (I'm saying hello to Fall through my taste buds), checked out a cute little used book store, ate burgers at a diner, and indulged in chocolate ice cream. Have a good week and thanks so much for reading :)
