White and Transitional

Asos Dress, BB Dakota Blazer, H&M Tights and Necklace, Joan & David Boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Michael Kors Darci Watch, J Crew Pavé Ring, Joe Fresh Sunnies, Essie Sand Tropez on nails

Happy Monday friends!

It hard to believe the leaves are already falling, but it's true! Fall has really arrived!

Fall is all about transitional items and being able to make some of your summer clothes work for the cooler weather. I thought this little white dress would be a great transition piece paired with tights and a blazer. In fact, I'm pretty sure any summer dress would work for fall paired with tights and a blazer or sweater!

Do you try to make your summer faves work for fall? How?

Jean Queen

J Crew Blythe Blouse, Gap Boyfriend Jeans, Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini Bag, American Eagle Belt, Shoemint Shoes, Michael Jors Darci Watch, House of Harlow Bangle, Joe Fresh Sunnies

Hello friends!

I purchased this J Crew blouse a while back during their summer sale and haven't worn it until now. I should have worn it before the sale was over because I would have gotten it in EVERY COLOR. I love this blouse! I guess I haven't owned much silk items because I didn't realize silk is so incredibly soft and comfortable! And now it seems as though J Crew isn't making the Blythe blouse anymore? I can't find this fall's version on the website and it is utterly heartbreaking. Why mess with a good thing J Crew?

Have a great day!

Plain Jane

Old Navy Dress, BB Dakota Blazer, Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini Bag, Forever 21 Sunglasses, H&M Tights, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Sam Edelman Lucca Booties

Guys, I can't get enough of these little Sam Edelman booties. So far, it's the best fall purchase I've ever made! They go with everything (due to their taupe nature) and are super comfortable! Hopefully they won't fall to pieces by the end of the season, but at the rate I'm wearing them, they might! Do you have a favorite pair of booties for fall? Any boots on your wishlist at the moment? I'm obsessed with those new Sea of Shoes X Shoemint collab booties!

Happy Wednesday friends!

Be Berry

BB Dakota Blazer, Joe Fresh Denim & Blouse, Aldo Pumps, Banana Republic Belt, H&M Bracelet and Necklace, House of Harlow Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

Happy Monday friends!

I'm bringing you a pretty simple look today - some of my fave colored denim with blazer and basic blouse. Combined with pumps and a few jewels, I think it's a great classic look for fall. I'll be re-wearing combinations of this look in the next few months for sure!

I brought out these Aldo heels from their hiding with this look - I had forgotten how much I love these! They're super comfortable and I love the detailing in the leather. I love when I re-discover an old item from my closet! Have you re-discovered anything lately?

Loafing About

Joe Fresh Sweater, J Crew Skirt & Loafers, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Stella & Dot Necklace

A simple look for today! I've been trying to wear my J Crew loafers a lot to break them in - they're comfortable, but by the end of the day, my toes are a little sore! Nothing better than quality leather to break in though, so I'm not too worried.

Anyone else feel like the week is going by incredibly fast? How can it be Thursday already?

The Fall Bootie

And because it was too good not to:
Old Navy Sweater & Denim, Gap Gingham, Sam Edelman Booties, Michael Kors Watch, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

That last picture... I don't even know what to say. Sometimes, you just have to laugh at yourself and I think looking like a disheveled zombie is pretty hilarious.

When I saw this sweater on Jenny from Crazy Style Love, I knew I needed it. I've been slightly obsessed with sequins lately and this was the perfect amount of sequin to add to a wardrobe that has none. I have absolutely no sequined items in my closet but I'm workin' on it!

If you remember about a month back in my fall wishlist, I lusted over these beauties. Well, I made the plunge and ordered them! And I have to say, I'm super happy with them. They are super comfortable, and I can't wait to wear them with tights!

Is it Wednesday already? Yay! Happy Wednesday friends!

All Black

This year, fall  is making me crave black accessories. I'm not sure how this came about, but I find there's something refreshing and masculine about black hardware. And I love that it can match absolutely anything in your wardrobe! Want to add gold or silver accessories to any of these? You can! If you have more feminine wardrobe, it also has the added bonus of giving your look a little bit of a masculine edge - I can only imagine that Loeffler Randall bag with a floral print fit & flare dress! Or those Rag & Bone booties with a white lace dress (like this one from Zara)! I've personally got my mind set on the Ray-Bans and the Michael Kors watch and will hopefully make the plunge on one or the other this fall (or both!)

What kind of accessories are you craving for fall?

Business Casual

Sweater - Gap, Denim - American Eagle, Blazer - Club Monaco, Shoes - Sam Edelman, Bag - Marc Jacobs, Watch - Michael Kors, Sunnies - Joe Fresh

And it's Monday again already! Today I'm bringing you an example of how I might style something my very businessey looking Club Monaco blazer - with ripped denim! I've had these jeans for a while and never got a chance to photograph them. They are the perfect fit for my short legs and have the perfect amount of stretch. The one disadvantage? They smell like jeans. You know that jean smell I'm talking about that never quite washes out? I think it's the dye of certain washes that does it, but I don't like it. I've washed these maybe 3 times and it's still there. Anyway, hopefully it goes away soon because I love these!

Hope you all had a good weekend! I spent mine catching up with family and friend, and even took a nap on Sunday! I seriously can't remember the last time I took a nap - I'm not really a napper. It was glorious.

Happy Monday friends!

Lime & Dots

Polka Dot Top - Zara, Blazer - J Crew, Denim - J Brand, Shoes - Ralph Lauren, Sunnies - Asos, borrowed from Kate, Bracelets - Gorjana and vintage, Watch - Michael Kors, Ring - J Crew

When I saw this little jacket on Ebay a few months ago, I knew I needed it for fall. I thought the color would be so refreshing to add to the usual fall colors and, added bonus, it's hella warm! I wanted to pair it with an all black look to start off, but I can totally imagine it with a little white dress as well. White after labour day? Hell yes!

Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Do you also Ebay for unique items?

Maybe Grey?

Blazer - Club Monaco, Top - Gap, Printed Denim - Paige Premium Denim, Pumps - Zara, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace - J Crew, Sunnies - Joe Fresh

Oh grey, the lovely, lesser know, color of fall. Personally, I love a good grey sweater, blazer, or jean. I love spicing it up with some color as well, although in the look today I paired my greys with a muted mint tee. This Club Monaco sweater is getting a lot of love lately! Initially, I thought it might be too business-ey but after having worn it with a combination of looks, I have found it fits right in my closet! Next up is pairing it with jeans and a little black dress!

Thanks for the pictures Kate!
