All Patterns + Textures: A Fall Office-Look

Happy hump day, readers! We made it half way through the week πŸ™ŒπŸ» AND it’s beginning to (finally) feel a lot like fall! πŸŽƒπŸ‚πŸΏ I love the cool morning air and warm afternoon sunshine – it helps make the getting-dark-early-part of fall bareable. 😌

As we’re moving into the cooler weather comes fun & fresh patterns & textures to rock!! For me, it’s primarily in the office. πŸ’πŸ» hey, who said office-ware can’t be stylish?!

So I’m obsessed with lace! However, lace can be either classy or trashy (IMO). BUT Loft never fails @ showcasing some pretty rad lace, especially this tunic! 


I discovered this gem at the Loft Outlet this past weekend, and I’ve linked a similar one here from Madewell. 😊 I paired this with a pair of simple Columnsit black pants from EXPRESS, along with these KILLER leopard hide/black booties! Oh my gah. 😍 talk about a statement shoe! The mix of lace & leopard print in one outfit is my FAVORITE combo so far this season!



I spotted these at G.H. Bass Outlet and new they were winners. It’s like business in the back and party in the front! πŸŽ‰  If you’re ever on the hunt for good shoes that are stylish but don’t break the bank, check out G.H. Bass & Co. (they always have great sales, too). 

I finished off the look with loose curls, a pigmented rosey-pink lipstick (Kate Moss, 17) and a pendant necklace, and violΓ‘!

What is your top fall look, for work or play?! How do you mix your textures & patterns? πŸŽ€ I’d love to hear! 

Thanks for reading!

#OOTDΒ 

Happy Tuesday – and Election Day, all! No matter your views and values, every vote counts. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜€

I made it into work super early (this time change is already throwing me… but I love it in the mornings!), and wanted to do a quick #ootd (outfit of the day post). While it’s not very “American-themed” like I feel everyone at work will be dressed, it’s a fun twist on some fall faves with a casual tunic. πŸ˜‰

Burgundy tights + leather booties πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I’ve had this medium-cream tunic for months and was never thrilled with accessories I paired it with. The burgundy tights, tank, ruffle socks + booties are the perfect matches for it! It feels very fall yet still comfy + chic. 

I added a simple gold bar necklace for a bit of added texture. 

Where can YOU get your hands on these pieces?

Vernacular: tunic (visit them @shopvernacular on IG or online)

Socks: Kroger Marketplace – hey, no shame πŸ˜‰

Ahh, it’s your turn! What’s your outfit of the day?! 

Until next time, Xx

Neautrals: These Outfits Can be Fun, Too

Happy Monday, all! I hope you had a fun & relaxing weekend… But back to reality/work-grind today! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸŒ»

So big question: do you ever open your closet and think all I have are neautrals?! How can o make any of this work together?Β I wonder this (probably) on a daily basis as I’m getting ready for work. WELL, no need to worry. Neutrals can look fabulous together!

I paired a few neutral pieces together to form these outfits last week and loved them as much as when I add a pop of color or bold pattern to an outfit!

I recently saw a quote from Bill Cunningham: “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.” This resonates with my passion for fashion and why I enjoy creating a wardrobe that I love and experiencing this ever-changing industry.

Now, let’s hear what some of your fave neutral pieces or outfits are!! βœ¨πŸŒ»πŸ’•

Office Chic

Hi, hi all! My… I feel like I say this (literally) every time, but I can’t stand how I never find time to blog. It was one of my August intentions to work on creating time… But hey, it’s not quite mid-August yet. πŸ˜‰

Along with setting aside time, I’ve moved into my new apartment (pics in my next post on decor) and started a new job– Eeekk! So many new chapters and fresh beginnings– I’m already loving it! 🌸✨

With that being said, I needed to work on morphing my wardrobe to fit a more business casual/business formal look. I’ve been so use to wearing jeans everyday and I knew this would be quite the transition! Definitely in a good way though. πŸ‘—πŸ‘ 

I’m a girl who loves clothes. Sometimes it’s tough to control my obsession, especially working part-time at my fav boutique, but clothing and accessories are my outlet of expression. So I have as much fun with it as I want!

Friyayyy office outfit

I finished my first week at my new job with a fun tri-colored skirt, classic white blouse, jean jacket and low-heeled nude pumps with a clear-jeweled statement necklace. A little bit of pattern mixed with some classic pieces goes a long way! 

What are some of your favorite office chic outfits?!

Until next time, Xx
