Denim & Tweed

Skirt: J. Crew Factory // Shirt: J. Crew Factory // Jacket: J. Crew Factory // Shoes: Steve Madden // Bag: Coach 

Happy Monday guys! Hope you all had a nice weekend! What did everyone do? I was up in northern Maine - a recap post of the weekend will be up soon! The views were stunning, the weather was perfection, and I was once again reminded how lucky I am to be a New Englander! 

 On a completely different note, I am loving this tweed skirt from J. Crew Factory. Super cute and versatile, as well as quite perfect for Fall. I brightened up the outfit with yellow accents, while also dressing it down with a denim jacket. How do you guys like to style tweed?!

Shirt Dress & a Leather Jacket


Dress: Target (old) // Jacket: BB Dakota via ShopBop // Bag: Pour la Victoire (old) // Shoes: Guess (old) // Sunnies: Ray-Ban

I finally bought myself a (faux) leather jacket and I LOVE. It's been keeping me warm as the weather has (finally) started to feel like Fall up here in the North East. In trying to get as much out of my summer wardrobe as possible (some pieces in my closet I'm just notttt ready to let go of yet), I decided to wear my new jacket with this shirt dress I've had from Target for years! I'm really liking how this outfit came out.

Hope you guys have a great day! XO

LFW: Temperley London / Burberry Prorsum

As London Fashion Week comes to a close, I wanted to share a few of my favorites from the runway! We will be seeing a lot of lace, pastels, layering, feminine silhouettes, sheer, and mixed patterns this coming Spring. I LOVE it all and I'm especially loving the collections from Burberry Prorsum and Temperley London. Make sure to check out style.com (*all photos from Style.com) for more from these AMAZING collections, but here a few of my favorite looks from each!

Burberry Prorsum SS14
 I love love love the color palette of this collection and how it shifts from soft and elegant to a punch of bold with the stripes/polka dot look. Not to mention the embellished coat and belt accents is so lovely. sigh

Temperley London SS14
Temperley London's collection killed me, in a good way of course! Such contrasting looks that somehow ALL tied together perfectly! Soft pastels turn to bold brights to somehow intertwining lace and leopard into a jaw dropping, eye popping, "I NEED THIS" in my closet look! Bravo, Alice Temperley, Bravo!

Leopard Jacquard



Top: J. Crew // Pants: Ann Taylor // Flats: Tory Burch // Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // Necklace: Zara // Watch: MK // Sunnies: Colors in Optics

Guys... I am so in love with these leopard jacquard ankle pants from Ann Taylor! How chic are these? They really vamp up my work wardrobe, but who am I kidding, I'll be wearing these all the time! They fit like a charm and are the perfect length. I highly recommend you run to Ann Taylor and snatch these up (if you haven't already) asap! 

Happy Monday! Xo

Weekend Wish List


Shirt: J. Crew Factory // Tunic: Vera Wang x Kohls (super old) // Pants: J. Crew Factory // Shoes: J. Crew Factory // Bag: Tory Burch // Necklace: BaubleBar // Earrings: Lord & Taylor (old) // Sunnies: via consignment

 Happy weekend everyone! What's everyone's plan for this weekend? I will be moving into my new apartment with Kyle and I can't wait to have everything in, so I can start organizing and what not. While I can't wait to be all moved in, moving furniture is one of my least favorite things... ever. So here's to hoping that part of the weekend goes by quickly and efficiently (*knock on wood*)! 

As Fall weather is approaching, my wish list keeps getting longer and longer - not shocking at all, as I'm sure you are all experiencing the same thing! Just wanted to share a few things I'm currently coveting:

The necklace tee from J. Crew, which would layer perfectly with this.
One always needs a little sparkle in their life. 
Not that I can afford this right now... but a girl can dream!  
Kate Spade Saturday Fall collection is in, and I'm loving this, this, this and this.
Really want a lace up heel!
A perfect Fall coat.
Colorful pants.

Oh, oh, and DO NOT forget that the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection launches THIS SUNDAY (9/15) - be prepared and ready to shop till you drop (literally). 

 Happy shopping! Xo

NYFW SS14: Tory Burch / J. Crew

Two of my most-anticipated shows/presentations occurred yesterday in NYC: Tory Burch and J. Crew (shocking... I know)! Both collections are amazing - full of prints, a wide range of color schemes, monochromatic looks, pattern play, and a few stand-out outfits that just make your jaws drop.  What I'm very happy about is that white is still going strong next Spring - maybe silly to say, but it really is one of my favorite colors. Anywho, just to relive the amazingness that are these collections, here are some of my favorites, and make sure to pay close attention to the shoes from J. Crew - they collaborated with Sophia Webster to create a pretty awesome, want all of them, kind of collection!

Tory Burch SS14
Amazing patterns - love these different shades of green.
Holy moly - these embellished necklines are KILLING me, not to mention the matching arm bands.
All white - loves. Also, I need these shoes and those sunglasses, stat!
Obsessing over these silk screen prints - especially the jacket/dress combo.

J. Crew SS14

Welp I NEED these striped pants and "Oui Mon Cheri" shirt.
All white again - loves. The perforated top is amazing, as is this awesome blush/peach combo.... and those heels!! Be still my heart.
Fact: These are my two favorite looks. This dress is to die for - I love the print and color combo. Same goes for these pants - a must have!
THESE SKIRTS! That is all.
Lovinggg this pattern and shirt/short combo - the touch of metallic heels really pulls the look together.

White & Flared


Shirt: Francesca's (old) // Skirt: Zara // Shoes: Nine West // Bag: Coach // Bracelets: J. Crew, Kate Spade, TJ Maxx // Watch: MK // Rings: David Yurman, gifted // Sunnies: Colors in Optics

 Yes... it's after Labor Day. Yes... I'm wearing white. And yes... I'm going to be wearing white in the coming months! I love to wear white, so I'm thankful that this whole "no white after Labor Day" thing is no longer a thing... as long as you're wearing appropriate fabric, white is a-ok!

When Zara released their Fall 2013 collection and I saw this skirt, I knew it had to be mine. It's super elegant and chic, yet totally wearable. I love the little fit and flare feel, as well as the midi length. This will definitely be in heavy rotation in the months to come. 

Hope you all have a great day! Xo

NYFW SS14: Kate Spade New York / Marissa Webb

Guys.... I'm dying over Kate Spade's SS14 collection! Inspired by European travels, this collection molds the simplistic with the bold, and I LOVE it. It literally took all of my restraint to not post every picture from the collection, so here are a few of my favorites - make sure to check out style.com for the full collection and other SS14 collections off the runway! 

 Black and white perfection. Going crazy over this printed dress!
This grey and white combo is everything - super chic! Oh, and can I have that coat, please?!


I love everything about this look... and I need that bag. Like now.

No Kate Spade collection is complete without the perfect party dress! Also, SO happy the book clutches are back... I vow to seriously buy one this season.



Another collection I'm seriously loving is from Marissa Webb. I can't get over how flawlessly she transitions her looks from lovely and super feminine to kind of boyish and totally relaxed. It's quite amazing! Also, please note how awesome the model's shoes are!

 I mean... these looks are perfection. These blush satin ensembles (and THESE SHOES) make for a polished and effortless look. They kind of remind me of glammed up ballerinas!

I love the stark contrast between the blush looks and these bold colors... amazing! And once again, can I please have these strappy shoes?!
 
 Until the next round of shows... enjoy! Xo
