Winter Hues

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.

I’ve been living in this sweater coat that I purchased for the Fall season, but is surprisingly warm when layered for cooler temps.

Plaid & Polkadots


Plaid & Polkadots

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)

Leopard Booties

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.

Navy & Pink

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!

Fall Staples

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.

Ocean Blues

Thinking of everyone in the NYC area that’s been affected by this horrible storm! Thankful for the amazing people who helped. Hope that everyone is safe! xo

I flew back to Pittsburgh last night, but today’s post is yesterday’s outfit in the Florida sun. My attempt at packing light worked well aside from the fact that I somehow snuck 9 pairs of shoes in my suitcase. (Maybe next time?) I packed one statement necklace that’ s versatility spanned from yesterday’s black & white polka dot popover shirt to dinner with this Vince LBD and nude pumps.

Polka Dots & Mint

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!

**Update, the J.Crew Polka Dot Peplum is back in stock! Swoop it up while you can.

Black & Bronze

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!

Trim the Tee

We’ve had such warm weather this week in Pennsylvania. It was the perfect time to break out this leather trimmed tee. Great for day or night, I love the edginess.
