All Patterns + Textures: A Fall Office-Look

Happy hump day, readers! We made it half way through the week ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป AND itโ€™s beginning to (finally) feel a lot like fall! ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿฟ I love the cool morning air and warm afternoon sunshine – it helps make the getting-dark-early-part of fall bareable. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

As weโ€™re moving into the cooler weather comes fun & fresh patterns & textures to rock!! For me, itโ€™s primarily in the office. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป hey, who said office-ware canโ€™t be stylish?!

So Iโ€™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 Iโ€™ve linked a similar one here from Madewell. ๐Ÿ˜Š I paired this with a pair of simple Columnsit black pants from EXPRESS, along with these KILLER leopard hide/black booties! Oh my gah. ๐Ÿ˜ 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. Itโ€™s like business in the back and party in the front! ๐ŸŽ‰  If youโ€™re ever on the hunt for good shoes that are stylish but donโ€™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 violรก!

What is your top fall look, for work or play?! How do you mix your textures & patterns? ๐ŸŽ€ Iโ€™d love to hear! 

Thanks for reading!

#OOTDย 

Happy Tuesday – and Election Day, all! No matter your views and values, every vote counts. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Burgundy tights + leather booties ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

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)

Tights + necklace: target

Socks: Kroger Marketplace – hey, no shame ๐Ÿ˜‰

Franco Sarto booties: Nordstrom Rack ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

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! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐ŸŒป

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?ย 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!

On a bit of a brighter neautral side are browns, navy and white… with a bit of pattern and sparkle โœจ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!! โœจ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’•

Until next time, Xx

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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! ๐ŸŒธโœจ

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. ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ 

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
