This season is all about texture and suede is on my radar. I became obsessed with this Moto jacket the second I spotted it. ‘Tis the season to layer, and what better way to do so than these basic v-neck tees, that A) aren’t see through B) wash well and C) are under $20! I’m loving the lace up trend, what a fun spin on a trendy tee (under $30!) for an instantly stylish look. OTK boots are universally flattering, and I couldn’t be more in love with this versatile neutral hue! Get 20% off here) One thing I live in, in cold temps is long, cozy cardigans. This are some of my favorite hues to sport during my favorite season!

Shakeology has been apart of my daily morning routine for the last year. Vegan Chocolate is my go-t0, but Monday launched the newest flavor, Cafe Latte. If you’re a coffee lover it’s a must try, all the benefits sans the caffeine! (Cafe Latte is not vegan)

Winter Hues

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.

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.

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.
