Blanket Scarf





Blanket Scarf Forever 21/ Booties Forever 21/ Grey Sweater Banana Republic/ White Jeans Graham and Spencer /Earrings Forever 21

A blanket scarf is one of my favorite go to's this time of year. The look is effortless chic, and is the perfect swap for a jacket or sweater. I left my blanket scarf open, but for a more structured look for the office or for a dinner date, try belting your blanket scarf with a dress or a pair of faux leather pants and pumps. This is an extremely transitional piece that is super affordable!!

Color Combo to Try: Pink and Burgundy





 Burgundy Pants H&M 
  Pale Pink Sweater H&M
 Pink Coat YOOX
White and Metallic Tote Banana Republic
Sunglasses Tory Burch

I am loving this color combo for fall! Super feminine, and out of the box. I saw this color combo everywhere while visiting New York City and couldn't wait to share it with all of you. I think this is a fun option for when you are sick of pairing the same old same old, but still want a look that is fashion forward and chic. Give it a whirl girls and let me know what you think!

Gray on Gray






 



Grey Long Vest White House Black Market/ Grey Turtleneck White House Black Market/ Flat Over the Knee Boots Forever 21/ Black Cut Out Ankle Booties Forever 21/ Tassel Necklace White House Black Market/ Faux Leather Pants H&M / Crossbody bag Forever 21

I have to make a disclaimer that while we were taking these photos in NYC it was raining! I looked like the crazy girl posing in the middle of the street while rain was coming down, but I wanted to shoot this outfit! Needless to say that's why the photos are a little dark, except for the later photos that we tried to snap when it cleared up!
 NYC has been amazing, and the Simply Stylist event was so amazing as well. I wore this outfit to the event and that evening. I got so many compliments on this grey long vest and matching turtleneck... you all HAVE to get this or at least one like it; They are super hot this season and I felt super chic. I paired the vest with faux leather pants but also think this would be super cute with a dress or even jeans. I wore a great pair of ankle boots during the day and then switched to these amazing flat over the knee boots for the evening because my feet were killing me! These boots are a must buy as well... I got so many compliments on these babies shopping around in NYC. You will definitely be seeing this vest and these boots on repeat!

The Perfect Travel Outfit







Black boots Forever 21/ High low blouse Forever 21/ Black leggings Forever 21/ Tunic sweater Banana Republic

Happy Monday! I am currently in New York at the Simply Stylist conference and I have to say this was truly the perfect travel outfit ... Comfy for the plane yet cute enough to shop in around New York City.

Slouchy Chic






Wrap Belt The Limited similar here and here/ Slouchy teal sweater older almost identical here/ Slouchy ankle pants older similar here/ Lace up booties older similar and cuter here

I love feminizing the over-sized, boyfriend style. The mix of slouchy pants and a slouchy sweater with a great pair of heels and a belt to add shape gives the look a high-fashion element yet is relaxed, cool, and comfortable. This look is super easy to replicate, and can be done with any of your favorite over-sized sweaters, a loose pair of ankle pants, and your favorite belt and heels. This  look is a great way to ease into this fall's menswear trend and is a great look  for work, church, or really any fall outing.
Make it a great day and have fun recreating this look!

Black and Tan





Black ankle pants Banana Republic/ Black tee Banana Republic/ Tan coat Forever 21/ Leopard clutch Old Navy/ Tassel necklace Forever 21/ Nude pumps Christian Loubtouin/ Floppy hat Old Navy

There is something so clean and chic about black and tan. It's the perfect go-to for any fall occasion whether it be a work event, dinner with friends, or a date with your honey. The combo looks rich and fashion forward, yet is just enough understated to not look over done. I love that the base of the outfit is all black and all the accessories (the hat, coat, and pumps) are all tan. In this case, matching all accessories is a definite "do" and a must try this season.

Fall Heights








Over the knee boots Forever 21/ Sweater older, love this more from Old Navy, Oxford button up Ralph Lauren / Jeans White House Black Market/ Earrings The Limited/ Leopard print bracelet The Limited/ Watch Michael Kors

Happy Monday to all of you! I have been searching for a great pair of brown over the knee boots, and I came across these babies from Forever 21!! ( I know... i'm still giddy about this) I love the buckle detail on the back and the color is spot on. I wore this look for weekend errands, lunch, and a football tailgate. I love the rich chestnut color, it looks really good with all of my neutral and fall brights. Stay tuned for more over the knee options...

Subtle Details





Blouse with piping Banana Republic/ Fitted Blazer H&M/ Leopard Belt Target/ Leopard Clutch Old Navy/ Jeans Rich and Skinny/ Ankle Boots via Nordstrom

I love how crisp, clean, and simple this outfit is. The subtle black piping on the blouse, paired with the leopard belt and clutch are just enough detail to take the outfit from basic to fashion forward. Remember that when purchasing "basics" like blouses, blazers, or even belts, find a piece that has that little extra something, that extra detail gives a safe, standard look,  a high fashion component without having to add a bunch  of accessories- the piece speaks for itself.

What fun, detailed pieces are you buying this season?

Military, Stripes, and Leopard





Military Jacket H&M/ Dress TopShop older similar option HERE/ Heels Christian Louboutin/ Leopard Clutch Old Navy/ Watch Michael Kors/ Leopard Print Bracelet The Limited

I love every component of this outfit- the mix of prints, the understated chicness, and the overall look that says "I love fashion, but i'm not trying too hard". This look is clean, crisp, and looks really good paired with riding boots, heels, and even converse.
On a side note, I have been looking for a leopard clutch for a while now. and I found this one most recently at Old Navy. I couldn't believe I found this at Old Navy,.. it's really good quality and fits a ton. I definitely recommend this baby for fall!

Cozy Sweater and Plaid







Sweater Old Navy/ Flannel Button Up Forever 21/ Jeans Rich and Skinny/ Lace Up Flats TopShop currently sold out, similar HERE

Make your favorite hoodie jealous with this super soft and comfy sweater from Old Navy. I got my sweater in an x-small so that I could wear blouses underneath and they would stick out of the bottom. My Forever 21 flannel is super soft and comfy as well, so the combo is a match made in heaven. I decided to pair this look  with my lace-up TopShop flats, they are still cute and comfy, not to mention give my feet a break after a long work week running around in heels!
The weekend was beautiful spent with family, a Michigan football game, and celebrating my mother in laws birthday over brunch. I wish the weekend could go on forever...but since it can't make it a great Monday.
