Fall + Winter

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 ...

Holiday Style + Zappos Present Palooza
It’s December and you know what that means! For the next 25 days I will be in full blown Christmas mode, so to kick things off I’m sharing some of my gift giving tips in a collaboration with one of my favorite sites, Zappos! Finding the perfec ...

Wrapped Up
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for this week! I'm headed home on Wednesday for Thanksgiving and like most of you guys am looking forward to a relaxing and delicious feast on Thursday. Most importantly, I have a lot of exciting thing ...

Plaid Mixing
It's official - everyone (myself included) is obsessed with Zara's blanket scarves this year. They really knocked it out of the park with the colors and the price point and I will tell you after a "feels like 18" degree day here in New York.. they're ...

Doubled Up
I shared a look last week in one of my fall staples – a faux fur vest. I can’t tell you enough how often I pull this out, but I’ve recently been playing with new ways to style it. I’ve found myself drawn to faux fur collar coats like thi ...

Faux Fur Vest
When the cold weather rolls in, I often turn to my favorite pieces that have continued to pull out the past few seasons. I've been trying to continue to build my closet on things that I know I'll love when trends come and go! One of the items that I ...

Mixin It Up
I'm the type of person who has a hard time mixing too many prints and colors and styles.. especially when it comes to playing nice with black. I've found that my palette in the Fall gravitates towards army green and maroon - where it's easy to tie i ...

Morning Light with Piperlime
Early mornings are tough for me. With the change in seasons come darker nights and hazier mornings making it even harder to climb out of my cozy bed. I'm a night owl and always have been, but I'm trying to find ways to pop out of bed. Lately I've bee ...

Extra Touch
I've been feeling under the weather for going on 3 weeks now ... the absolute worst! It's that time of year and so easy to pick something up, so I've found myself looking for easy ways to feel more put together while still wearing my tried and true f ...

Sweater Weather
I don't know about you, but on the weekends I actually find myself dressing much more casual than I do during the week. I often don't get a chance to fully post about some of my weekday outfits but I try to dress up a little more than usual for work ...

Lacoste Polo Dress
As a shorter gal, I've come to appreciate those pieces that you can put on and walk out of the store in without requiring a hem, tapering or any adjusting necessary. It's very rare that I find a dress or pair of pants that allows me to do so and that ...

Fall Florals
I've been looking for ways to keep a colorful and cheery wardrobe even going into the Fall. I have so many brights that are a few shades too light to make the transition well with me, so I've been looking for deeper, richer tones to balance it all ...

When Life Gives You Lemons
I joked recently on Instagram about how terrible I am sometimes at laundry, but one of my recent fails was maybe the most epic one of all. I shrank my favorite gingham dress! I went to put it on the other day and instead of being really mad at mysel ...

Berry Shades
I've been on a pretty heavy rotation of black and white outfits lately and finally changed it up the other day for a simple look in shades of berry that started as me wanting to wear my favorite tortoise necklace from Bauble Bar. Sometimes I end up ...

The Trench
Fall is about to be in full swing and I'm finally embracing the crisper temperatures and opportunities to wear light layers. It's perfect trenchcoat weather these days - right in the 60's/70's where you can still pull off a dress or skirt but a long ...

Twirling in Tulle
It must be something in the air or just this season of life, but it seems like every weekend I know someone who is getting married or engaged! Weddings are such a blast and I always get excited about getting dressed up for the special celebration. ...

Power Lunch
As a working girl, I’m usually looking for any and every way to spice up my day-to-day wardrobe. I really enjoy getting dressed for work  - whether that means pulling on a dress or just throwing together something that I’m happy to walk out of t ...
