Fall + Winter

A Touch Of Plaid
I feel like New York has rubbed off on me in so many little ways – I walk way faster than I ever have in my little legged life, I don't even remember what cooking is like, and I find myself shopping less because I just don't have as much room in ...

Winter Weekend Casual
This past weekend was beautiful. I almost forgot that it snowed last week when I came back into the city on Saturday afternoon. The snow had melted and you really only needed a coat and a long-sleeve shirt. Oh, what a joyful hiatus it was.

Drape Front Jacket
I have to admit, my winter rotation is getting a bit stale. Sweaters, jeans, boots, repeat. You probably know exactly what I'm talking about! Getting dressed up is trickier in the winter and let's be honest.. there's not a ton of motivation. Every ...

Blanket Scarf Season
I have a weird habit where when I check the weather, I always look at the 15 day forecast. I don't know what it is but it's like I have to know if the temperatures are going to rise or fall or if it's "bundle up for the next 15 and then some." Aft ...

How To Find The Perfect Flares
I've been on a pretty heavy skinny jean kick for ... oh, I'd say about 4-5 years now. By kick, I really mean that I've kicked everything else out and that's all that remains. (No but really, I cleaned out my closet this weekend and it's true–skinni ...

Nothing New
This holiday season I promised myself I’d try to spend less on buying new outfits and more on presents for people that I love, trips that I have coming up next year, and helping other people. I’ve challenged myself to come up with some new looks ...

Holiday Happiness
As much as I tried to get ahead of my holiday shopping this year, inevitably I always end up needing a gift or two when I head home. I picked up a few gifts from the Union Square holiday market this year and always love bringing something back to Tex ...

Slate Blue
There's something about December and this time of year that tends to bring out different color cravings for me. Something in the (well, not so wintery) air beckons cooler tones and subdued statements. While I've kept my recent outfits relatively simp ...

Uptown Girl
Confessions of being a New York transplant–there are still some songs that make me so happy to listen to when I walk around the city. One of those songs is Uptown Girl by Billy Joel.. it just puts a smile on my face. If you saw the movie Trainwr ...

From Fall To Festive
December. You're finally here! It doesn't really feel like it's you, but it sure does look like it's you. The halls are decked all over the city and we've officially begun my favorite month of the year! I love the holiday season and everything about ...

Pretty In Pink
If you want to talk about stepping out of your comfort zone, let me be the first to tell you that it's not easy. I used to hate change, bright pink and busy crowded places... but now here I am in a bright pink skirt living in New York City. It's funn ...

Wardrobe Staples
How many times have you woken up, walked into (or just stared straight at in my case) your closet and thought… I have absolutely nothing to wear. Hand raised x 1000! If writers block is real and artists need muses, I think we all need something for ...

Shearling Jacket
People ask me all of the time how I survive the winters – 3 years in Chicago and now my first winter in New York.  The answer is actually pretty simple... I've become a coat & jacket hoarder. Just kidding! Well, maybe a little bit. It's f ...

Flirty Skirt
About this time of year I start dreaming of warmer temperatures as I have to start planning for fun events like showers, weddings, vacations and all things that don't involve the cold and snow. It's so tempting to want to pull out my favorite s ...

Gray Turtleneck Jumper
Maybe it's the 5+ years I've spent living in cold climates now, but I think I'm getting a little better at this whole "getting dressed in the winter" thing. I've learned that having a few good staples will make this daunting task so much easier wh ...

Weekend Attire
Saturdays have become pretty special to me lately and they're by far the best day of the week in my book. The thing about New York City is that it makes it really hard for you to be basic. Sure, there are days when I leave for work and think wow.. ...

Birds Of A Feather
I am one of those people that genuinely loves printed everything. It can be a shirt, skirt, pants, jacket... you name it but I love patterns and mixing them with various textures. We had a weekend recently that was above 40 degrees and I used it a ...

Winter Colors
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed (and I'll be the first to admit) that I'm guilty of wearing a lot of black and monochromatic colors.. especially in the winter. Recently I have been challenging myself to pull things out of my c ...

Leopard Coat
My love affair with leopard accent pieces just keeps growing and most recently I added to the collection an amazing new leopard coat!

Grey Matter
Winter. We're right in the middle of it and it's not going anywhere for a little while. Aside from planning a few getaways when I can, I'm trying to embrace the cold and find ways to wear pieces I've pushed aside here and there. I have a serious ...

Blush and Black
My favorite coat purchase this season was the least expensive - this neutral longline duster coat has been a staple rotating in my winter wardrobe

Winter White
Sometimes I catch myself looking longingly on my favorite summer dresses thinking, “how many more days until I can wear you again?”

Looking Back on 2014
2014 was quite the year! One of my favorite things about having a blog is getting to share my life and experiences with you guys, and it also is kind of cool when the year ends to be able to visually look back on everything and see what happened. ...

Deep Red
I was never really a lipstick girl until my move to Chicago a few years back. My friend Arleigh actually was one of the first few people who I noticed wore lipstick almost everytime we went out and eventually I decided she had something going that I ...

Holiday Style Tips
Getting dressed for the Holidays can be SO much fun, but also secretly really stressful. Do you wear a dress? A skirt and top? All black? Bright festive colors? Sequins? Plaid? Hair up? Hair down? The options are endless and sometimes really overwhel ...

Black Jumpsuit
Getting dressed for the Holidays can be so tough! Do you wear a dress, skirt and top, something fitted, something loose, sequins, lace, hair up, hair down.. the list of options are endless and sometimes can be exhausting. I've shared a few of my f ...

Party Skirt
There's nothing like a great little skirt to really put you in the mood to have fun! That's exactly what happens when I find a great fit and flare skirt. Being petite, I love to look for styles that are flattering and also make me feel like I actuall ...

Little Black Lace Dress
Bells will be ringing the glad, glad news.. Christmas is right around the corner! I'm definitely in the festive holiday spirit and am excited about the next 10 days and everything in store. I mentioned on Friday, but it's Holiday party season! Whe ...

New Layers
Sometimes it can be easy to forget that fashion and personal style not always about finding what you love and sticking to that, but also taking risks and surprising yourself at what you find fits that definition. I recently stumbled upon this over ...

Home For The Holidays
In the 18 years I spent growing up in Texas, I don’t remember ever seeing a Fall quite like the one I came home to. The entire concept of Fall was actually foreign to me until my move to Chicago. Leaves went from green to dead and trees went from f ...
