This season I’ve been reaching for army green and wine colored hues, along with my usual neutrals. A pair of colored denim or an accent scarf really make my basic blacks, navys and beiges pop in a bold way.
It may not feel like the Holiday season just yet (today it was almost 70 degrees!) But lately, I’ve found myself leaning towards cozy plaids, and statement metallics. (oh and a festive red lip!.. love Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous in Inimitable)
A delayed flight, left a little room for airport perusing. I snagged these leopard printed statement booties from Nine West before my trip to NY. They were a comfortable, yet chic find for strolling around the city.
It was *love at first sight* when I spotted these sparkly pumps adorned with bows. They are the epitome of glam. It’s safe to say this statement shoe will add sparkle to any ensemble.
TIP: Don’t limit yourself to Women’s sizes. J.Crew Crewcuts boys clothes sometimes have a better fit than Women’s when it comes to button-front tops! Added bonus: the price tag is usually significant lower, also!
Jacket: Gap (similar) / Sweater: Hive & Honey / Denim: J Brand / Knit Socks: Forever 21 / Boots: DV Dolce Vita / Handbag: Louis Vuitton / Rings: David Yurman & Vintage / Watch: Michael Kors / Nails: Julep Alma (Trina Turk Fall 2012 Collection) These boots were a TJ Maxx find. I’ve worn them all Summer, and they’ve been my go-to shoe this Fall. They’re a year-round staple in my closet. I’m such an ankle boots girl. I have so many similar pairs, but these are my favorite. I love the ankle length height.
This jacket was a steal on the clearance rack at Gap. I spotted the find this Spring, for $35 down from it’s $170 price tag. The removable faux fur lining & collar make this jacket so versatile.
The polka dot find from the J.Crew event I hosted has become a serious asset to my wardrobe. From a chilly night in Pennsylvania last week, to a sunny day in Florida this week (yes, you CAN wear white denim/dresses/etc. year round!), this printed top screams multifunction. Eager to share with you, I searched the dotted popover but found that it had been sold out online. Luckily, I found similar finds that are seasonless must-haves, too!
Metallic denim is a chic alternative to your basic blues for day or night. A chambray shirt is a great option to tone down the look for day. (Wise Words from the Staff at J.Crew: “When in doubt, Chambray out!”) A sleek black blazer puts an edgy spin on the denim for night. I love the sheen of these bronze beauties, & they’re under $30!
