Hidden Gems

How easy is it to throw on all black everything? As much as I love color, black is a reliable clothing option because it can go with almost anything! On Friday I was inspired by the cold and attempting to dress somewhat decent for casual drinks with my friends after work.

I have to say that one of my favorite things about this look is the shoes. When I was in college I absolutely hated them. I had purchased them as business shoes to wear with suits for interviews and it was probably the most awkward look ever. Without my tights and pin stripe pants, these shoes are actually really cute. You definitely can't write something off in your wardrobe just because it doesn't go as well with a certain look. Mix things up and see what new outfits you can make! Who knows, you might find a whole new appreciation for something hiding at the bottom of your closet.

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 :)

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.

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.

Autumn Favorites: Coats

Autumn coats





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!
