cooler


Although I love warm weather, fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love everything that comes with cooler weather, especially layering. I love it so much that I never realize I'm layering until I post it on  the blog. 

Creating the Look: 
This look started with the skirt. Usually when I wear this skirt it's dressed up but I wanted to make it more casual. I know I wanted to wear it with my green loafer because I love mixing something super feminine with something masculine. I continued the masculine feel with a tux button up. I left the bottom of the button open to expose the detail of the skirt. I topped the look off with a faux leather jacket for some edge. The look was complete with a dark lip and emerald earrings.

suited

There's nothing like a tailored suit, especially a printed suit!

Creating the Look: 
After putting the suit together, I wanted to spice it up with my accessories. Since it was a plaid suit, I wanted to add subtle accessories so there wasn't too much going on. I knew from the moment I bought this suit I wanted to do a Saint Laurent inspired bow. I love how nostalgic the look was once the bow was add. When it came to the shoes, I couldn't decided if I wanted to wear heels or loafers. I decided on the loafers because of the color. They pulled out the green in the suit. I completed the look with more green. I wore my emerald wasp earrings.

casual blogger

I feel like this is a classic casual blogger look. We preach that you can have a nice outfit that is both casual and comfy.

Creating the Look:
This look started with the idea of wear a plaid shirt around my waist. I've seen this look a couple of times on other bloggers and wanted to give it a try. I decided to wear it with black jeans because I love this color plaid with black. Also, I wore these jeans because the slits gave the look some edge. I wore a gray tee because it was just right. A white tee would of made the plaid stand out too much and a black tee would of made it an all black outfit, which I wasn't going for. To continue giving the look some edge, I topped the look of with a faux leather moto jacket. I completed the look with some birks to keep it casual.

something new

This post is the start of an evolution within my style. It's crazy because it took numerous outfits to notice the change and a lot of disbelief. In the past, I was all things color. I had a great understand of the beauty of neutral, as seen in past post, but you would rarely see me in an all neutral outfit. Lately, I'm finding myself in nothing but neutrals. This shift in my style is also the shift we are seeing in fashion right now. Fashion is now focusing more on the detail, shape, and style of clothing. Without knowing, I was inspired by this concept and started to emulate it in my style. 

Creating the Look: 
The look started with the faux leather joggers. I knew I wanted to dress them up and pair them with structured pieces since the were the opposite of structured. Of course when thinking of structure, a blazer comes to mind. I chose a white blazer because of my new obsession with neutrals. I also chose a white blazer because it goes against the traditional black on black. Although I now have a love for neutrals, my color roots are still in me. I chose to pair a chambray striped button up because you get the best of both worlds with this blue. It looks similar to denim so you get the neutral side but the fact that it is blue, it gives color to the look. I took that blue to the heels. I chose these heels because it's design made it look like I added another print to the look. One thing that is still big in my style is mixing prints. I completed the look with a pair of sunnies and a black clutch.

quick details

One thing I love about warm weather is the simplicity of the clothing. There isn't a need for too much clothing but that doesn't mean you have to skip on the details. 

Creating the Look: 
This look started with the jeans. This was an after work look so I wanted to be comfy and nothing says comfy like jeans. I wanted to dress up the look so I used the small details for that. The first detail was the lace, sleeveless button up. The sleeve detail of the blazer was another add. The dress up look was definitely achieve with the accessories. A great pair of white heels, stacked, jeweled necklaces, and an green faux-ostrich clutch gave the look great detail.
