Lady In Red






Jacket :: bebe similar style here
Crop top :: bebe similar style here
Midi skirt :: Closet from Asos

What I wore to work this past Friday...

It's never too cold for a crop top. Despite the dropping temperatures, a high waisted bottom makes the outfit more appropriate for both the weather and the work environment.

Don't be afraid to wear a single color from head to toe. Obviously an all white or all black look is a staple, but try mixing things up and wearing a brighter color. Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new :)

Layering







Sweater :: Loft similar style
Dress :: Victoria's Secret similar styles here and here
Boots :: Doc Martens

Fall is perfect for layering. Your wardrobe will seem to increase tenfold with the amount of outfits you make out of layering pieces together. Outfit possibilities are endless. I love playing with different textures and prints to create new looks. 

To add an edgier feel to this outfit, I paired my high lace-up doc martens with a white rose design. I love the femme punk look and have officially fallen in love with the skirt of this dress all over again.

Balance








Jacket :: bebe similar style here
Pants :: a gift from Thailand similar style here
Shoes :: Zigi Soho similar style here
Necklace :: J. Crew

Today's post is a look I wore to work earlier this week. I've style the harem Thailand pants on the blog before, but I wanted to find a way to make them more sophisticated for work. A crisp clean button down with a simple statement necklace and a cropped jacket do just that. With pants that are so baggy and full, you need a more structured and fitted top to balance things out.

As autumn is settling in and the leaves begin to fall, it's about time to grab a new coat for the season. Pictured above are some of my favorites from Club Monaco. They're a great mix of classic cuts with a modern twist. Most of the ones I chose have a mix of textures which makes them more unique staple pieces. I had to throw in the sleeveless trench because it's one of my favorite ways to rock this signature look. Do you have any favorite fall coats? Let me know!

Sweater Weather



Sweater :: Loft
Dress :: similar style here
Boots :: Sam Edelman

It's getting terribly cold in the northeast and that means it's finally sweater weather. For this look I layered a strapless dress with a sweater and wore some knee high boots. It's fall days like these where layering is best because mornings are freezing and the days get a bit warmer than anticipated. Do you have a favorite way to wear your sweater at the start of fall? Let me know in the comments below!

Live Love Loft

Blouse :: Loft
Pants :: Loft
Flats :: Loft similar style here

I'm kind of obsessed to this head to toe Loft look I wore to work last week so I wanted to give you the proper details in a blog post. (p.s. if you haven't noticed, my wardrobe is slowly being taken over by Loft)

I wasn't sure about this soft chambray shirt initially because I have a ton of chambray already. After wearing it out, I am in love(maybe all of the hearts had something to do with it haha)! This is probably one of the most comfortable, put together looks I've ever worn to work. The pants are stretchy which makes them great for running around, and the fit is my favorite one that Loft has to offer. While they generally tend to have a straight fit pant, this skinny fit is fantastic because it's figure flattering and cropped so you can show off whatever shoe's you're wearing.

Windowpane Plaid











Sweater :: Loft
Jeans :: Loft similar cut different wash here
Shoes :: Zigi Soho similar here
Necklace :: Loft
Watch :: bebe similar style here

One of my favorite things about fall is sweaters. This boxy cropped sweater from Loft features a windowpane plaid print (have I mentioned that plaid is one of my favorite prints).

I love the cut and fit of this top. Despite the fact that it has a lot of volume, the cropped cut lets you pair it with a more relaxed fit denim. 

I paired the look with my Zigi Soho cut out booties because I'm not quite ready to give up on summer yet lol  

And like I've mentioned before, don't be afraid to pair navy with black. All of my life I was taught that these two colors can't go together, but when done in the right way they make a perfect pair. Here, black and gold accessories further play up the beautiful and bold navy and red print.
