Burgundy Times Two

Sweater:  Forever 21, Shirt:  J.Crew (old, love this year's version), Jeans:  H&M (great alternative here), Bag:  Zara (old, similar here), Shoes:  c/o Marc Fisher, Earrings:  Kate Spade

Out of all of the brilliant fall colors, burgundy is probably my favorite one. It's such a rich hue, and looks great with most skin tones.

Also, I'd consider it a neutral it pairs easily with almost everything in my closet. 

Happy Monday everyone!



Blazer:  Helmut Lang, Tee:  Splendid, Skirt:  H&M (old, love this similar option), Bag:  French Connection, Shoes:  Zara (old, obsessed with these), Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

A super-quick hello and happy hump day today. This photo was taken last week. The temperature has significantly dropped since and I think the days of bare legs are over until the spring.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far!


Patterns and Textures

Sweater:  Forever 21, Shirt:  The Limited (old, similar here), Skirt:  J.Crew, Bag:  Zara (old, similar here), Shoes:  J.Crew, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Yes, our leaves are out of control! But I love the beautiful colors ~ they make the perfect backdrop.

This season I'm all about mixing patterns and textures. This outfit combines four of my favorites:  waffle knit, pinstripe, houndstooth and calf hair.

Happy Monday everyone!


New Tricks

Coat:  Vintage (similar here), Top:  Gap, Jeans:  Flying Monkey for East & Lo c/o East & Lo, Bag:  French Connection, Shoes:  Zara (old, similar here, LOVE this pair), Necklace: c/o LilahV, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

Denim - a fit possibly as personal as underwear. Ladies, how many times have you gone into a fitting room with 10+ pairs of jeans and come out with not even one perfect fitting pair?

I know it's happened to me countless times.

People say the older you get, the more set in your ways you are. I believe this to be particularly true of denim. I know what I like, I like what I like, and I stick with what works.

...Until I tried these Flying Monkey jeans. One of the best feeling/fitting pairs of jeans I've ever worn. They are super-soft with just the right amount of stretch. Best part? These beauties are under $100!

I guess you can teach an old{ish} gal new {denim} tricks.

Happy Monday everyone!



Happy 7th wedding anniversary to my husband/best friend.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!


Checked Scarf

Coat:  Zara (old, LOVE this one), Top:  Anthropologie (old, similar here), Jeans: H&M (similar here), Scarf:  Zara (recent, similar option here for $6!), Shoes:  Valentino, Bag:  Target (similar here), Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

I've reached for this scarf every day this week as I ran out the door. 

It's the kind of weather where the big morning debate is to wear, or not to wear a coat. When in doubt, I grab the scarf and call it a day.

Happy hump day everyone!


First Signs of Fall

Jacket:  Aritzia (old, similar here), Sweater:  J.Crew (borrowed from my hubby, love this one), Jeans:  Forever 21, Scarf:  Alexander McQueen, Bag:  Marc by Marc Jacobs, Shoes:  Sam Edelman, Sunnies:  Ray-Ban

It finally started to feel like fall over the weekend. A little crazy considering last weekend was 80+ degrees and I was wearing my skimpiest sundress in an attempt to stay cool at the winery.

But I welcome the crisp chill in the air.

A great excuse to break out my scarves and sweaters.

Happy Monday everyone!


Dinner Date Dress

Dress:  Free People, Shoes:  Aquazzura, Bag:  Forever 21 (old, OBSESSED with this one), Sunnies:  Ray-Ban 

I was first drawn to this dress on the Free People website because of the name ~ 'Dinner Date Dress'. I immediately thought to myself, yes, I could use a good dinner date dress. 

I mean, can't we all?

I love the creamy colored crochet, and the high mock neck detail. 

Not only is this dress perfect for a romantic dinner date as the name implies, but it is the perfect wear to work dress also. 

I guess the name 'Wear to Work and then Out for a Dinner Date' was just too long?

Hello, October. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!
