Inspiration From Across The Pond

I watch quite a lot of YouTube, & funny enough, about 90% of the YouTubers I am subscribed to are living in the London area. What can I say, I love the way they speak?! They also have the best phrases & ways of saying things. I even find myself talking like them sometimes! Anyone else do this too?! Anyways, clearly I feel very inspired by these lovely ladies, & this look reminds me of a combination of them all. (Amelia Liana, Kate La Vie, Samantha Maria, Estée Lalonde, I Covet Thee, In The Frow, Fashion Mumblr, & Freddy My Love)

Re-Imagined

With exception of my faux fur scarf, the items that make up this London look are all items I’ve had in my wardrobe for years. I’ve been working on my creativity lately & have had so much fun re-imagining how I put together pieces that I already own. This process is so much fun to me. All it takes is a small window of time & a spark of creativity (or maybe a glass of wine) to start playing around in your wardrobe. Mix & match different colors, prints, & textures until you find a whole new batch of great outfits from your own closet. It’s like shopping without paying for new things. Re-imagining your wardrobe in this way really gets me excited about my clothes again. It makes me love putting on each & every outfit at the start of a new day. In a fast paced world where trends come & go with each new season, it’s refreshing to own quality pieces that last year after year. My bank account is surely thankful as well!

My London Look

As I mentioned before, this outfit was inspired by my favorite influencers from across the pond. Kate & I have the same gold bow mules, which are an all time fav of mine. She inspired my camel beret as well. The pink coat is a little bit of everyone, but mostly Freddy for her love of all things pink. My leather mini skirt was inspired by Amelia & Josie. Bright colors & cozy faux fur like my scarf are definitely influenced by Samantha. The one item that brings them all together though, is my beloved white top from H&M. It’s maybe my favorite top that I own & could bee seen on each one of my British babes. I’m also obsessed with how they say “H&M”, for the record. (see here & here)

I think that in just the same way that you are the 5 people you are closest to at any one time, your fashion takes on the same vibes as the 5 people’s fashion you are drawn to at any one time. How cool is that? Fashion is influenced by the people & things around us, yet is uniquely ours as well. Go out there & be inspired by fashion bloggers & fashionistas around you, but then make it yours. Be you. Fearlessly be you, & love the you that you create.

The Sweater Dress

Hello Everyone!

And Dress Week continues!…

Today’s post is all about the staple sweater dress every woman needs in her wardrobe. They feel so warm & cozy on, & can easily transition from day to night with a little lipstick & a pair of heels. Whether it has sleeves or it’s sleeveless, tight fitting or oversized, your sweater dress is sure to be a most worn item of the season.

To choose your perfect sweater dress, think about your wardrobe: Do you stick with more neutrals? Try a neutral option that will go with everything. Does your closet contain mostly soft, feminine pieces? Look for one with delicate details like this. Do you prefer a more timeless, classic feel? Try one like this that’s sure to never go out of style.

Sweater dresses are perfect transition pieces. Wear them with bare legs now, then add tights or over the knee boots & a coat once the weather starts to get cold. If you already own one, I know you’re already in love, but if you’re still searching for the perfect piece, maybe one of these will do:

 

Stay tuned for more fall dresses all week long! xx

Fall Fashion Haul

 

Hello Everyone!

Is anyone else just soooo ready for fall?! I have been planning for this fall season since June, & have gathered quite a few new pieces to my wardrobe. Ok, maybe I went a little overboard, but can you blame me? Fall is by far my favorite season of the year, & the most fun in terms of fashion. Chunky sweaters with mini skirts, light blouses with corduroys, layering up with jackets, vests, & scarves…there are just so many things to get excited about.

This year, I’ve tried to step out of my comfort zone in terms of colors & patterns. Some recent stand-outs in this category include these two pairs of patterned heels (1 / 2), this bold sweater, & my new favorite coat. I feel very prepared for the season, & so inspired to mix & match these pieces with my current wardrobe to create new looks. Now, if only the weather would cooperate with my wardrobe…bring on the cooler temps!

 

I know you guys have seen me wear my Celine dupe sunnies literally all summer, so I bought another pair in a different shade to mix it up a little.

I’ve never been much of a hat person, but when I saw this wool beret, I felt all the Parisian vibes & had to have it.

I found a white floral blouse from Forever 21 (similar here), & bought it in a size XL for a more flowy, billowy look.

The fall tones from these items are giving me all the feels: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

How To Transition With Ease

Hello Everyone!

Season transitions can really put a damper on your decision as to what to wear in the mornings. Do I wear a sweater? Shorts? Boots? Sandals? Will I get too cold in this? Will I burn up if I wear this? Seeing as though I have been asking myself the same sorts of questions, I decided to dig deep (into my wardrobe) & put together a collection of actually useful transition pieces your wardrobe needs. I’ll show you how I wear them now, while it’s still warm outside, then I’ll tell you how to make the same outfit work for cooler weather. Hopefully, allowing you to transition from summer to fall with ease.

The Long-Sleeve Dress

Dress (similar here) / Collar / Shoes (similar here & budget friendly here) / Bag (similar here)

A piece like this is essential to your transition wardrobe because of its versatility. I found this dress at Zara last season & quickly fell in love with the cut & the delicate feminine details on display. With its dainty nude polka dots & ruffled sleeves, I feel right at home in this dress. That is definitely an important feeling to have when finding a transition piece, since you want it to be something you will want to wear often. The one touch I added to this dress was a collar. The pop of white with the velvet black tie added a touch of preppiness to this look which is perfect for fall.

For warmer weather, I chose to wear this dress with bare legs, a white bag, & these Chanel vibes, black capped toe shoes. As the weather gets colder & colder, I can add a pair of sheer black tights or even black fishnets to this dress to cover my bare legs, & trade these shoes for a pair of ankle boots. My very favorite pair of booties to wear with this dress are my navy velvet ones (sold out, similar here) I found at H&M last season. Before heading out the door, I can easily throw on my favorite moto jacket, trench coat, or pink over coat, & I’m ready to take on the crisp fall air.

The Velvet Midi

Midi Skirt / Ruffled Top / Heels / Bag

When finding transition pieces, pay attention to the color, pattern, & most importantly, the texture of the garment. This skirt is an ideal transition piece with its burnt orange color & velvet texture. I love making a piece thats color & texture screams fall, work for warmer days. Also, the small detailing of the ties on either side of the skirt, make this a very special piece. It’s good to make sure transition pieces are versatile, without being plain. Find items with details to personalize your look.

For now, I’ve paired this skirt with a grey top with mega ruffled sleeves (LOVE!), gingham slingback heels, & my nude Chloé Drew dupe crossbody. As the weather continues to change, I can see myself wearing this skirt with a chunky white or cream knit sweater, or even a black turtleneck. I can’t wait to finish this look with my new long black check coat over top.

The Throw-On Sweater

Sweater (SO similar here) / T-shirt / Jeans / Mules

Ok, so this is not so much a “before & after” item, but rather a “pop this over anything & everything” item. I wore this outfit on tour last weekend to the Outer Banks, & I was able to transition from the chilly mornings & evenings to the warm afternoon with ease. Wearing my current fav jeans with a casual slogan tee & embroidered mules, I popped this fall-toned, mustard sweater over top for extra warmth.

Details. What makes this sweater unique? The amazing twist back detailing transforms this sweater from plain to wow. I can picture myself wearing this over a black shirt dress, or with a black button front midi. The mustard color helps transition any look into a fall look. Also, I can’t wait to wear this to a bonfire this season. Doesn’t this look like the perfect bonfire sweater?!

The Sleeveless Sweater Dress

Sweater dress (similar here) / Heels / Clutch (similar here) / Sunnies

I have had this sweater dress for a couple of years now, so I can confidently tell you how useful this piece is for the transition season. A dress like this one gives major fall vibes, making it fun to wear even on warmer days. If you’re like me, & fall is your favorite season, an item like this is essential to not only your wardrobe, but also your happiness. This dress is perfect to throw on when all you want to do is cozy up under a blanket with a PSL, but you have to leave the house & it’s still warm outside.

For now, I wear it on it’s own, with a pair of leopard chunky heels, a nude clutch, & a pair of cat eye sunnies. Later, I layer it up with a white or black long-sleeve underneath, & a good pair of booties with a structured burgundy bag. I also love dressing it down with a pair of converse and a moto jacket. This dress is so easy to throw on & instantly look put together.


I hope you enjoyed this post & that it helps you make the transition from summer to fall with ease. xx
