Fallinโ€™ for Suedeย 

Happy Friday-eve, readers! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‚  & to top it off, the fall weather weโ€™ve been having in Ohio has been perfect this past week; the vivid orange and brown hues, the crisp breeze & all the fall layers!

One huge trend this season is suede. And another style thatโ€™s slithered itโ€™s way back into the fashion scene (which Iโ€™m so happy about!) is snap-front mini skirts. LIKE HELLO, yes, please give me all of them + every color of tights! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ but seriously, these take me back to my early grade school days… #tbt.


I snagged this fun suede skirt from Old Navy, & it pairs with so much! Again, staples are key. ๐Ÿ˜‰  I paired this with a classic cream sweater from way back in the day, but itโ€™s adorable with a plain or patterned turtleneck or a black & White stripped tee. Throw on neutral tights + your favorite booties & youโ€™re set for the day! (Ps: I featured these show-stopper booties in my last blog post – check it out!)

Have you dived into the snap-front skirts again?! If so, what do you love to pair with it? Iโ€™d love to hear!

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!

Navy / Weekend Wear

Happy Sunday, babes! โ˜•๏ธ Itโ€™s finally feeling like the cool, crisp autumn weโ€™ve been waiting for ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒž PRAISE!

With this change in weather comes a shift in wardrobe. On a brief side note: I feel as though my taste in clothing has altered so much since graduating from college. Now, I search for staple pieces that can be worn in the office and out with the girls or my boyfriend at night. With that, Iโ€™m all about the sweaters, long or fitted, blanket scarves, plaid or solids and all the warm, dark fall colors! ๐Ÿค—

I recently found this killer navy, double-peplum sweatshirt from Banana Republic. Iโ€™m obsessed! Itโ€™s pairs perfectly with these knee-ripped, high low hem jeans from Target, plus (throwback!) these gold mules by Franco Sarto (I found this pair at Mashallโ€™s). Hi, yes! Iโ€™m over-the-moon obsessed with mules this season! Theyโ€™re different, fun, casual & super easy for any outfit. You need to get a pair. Or five. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is your go-to weekend wear? Are there any colors or patterns youโ€™re excited to rock this season?! Iโ€™d love to hear! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks for reading!

Falling for (Fall) Florals

Hi hi, readers! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‚ My favorite time of year is here, where the air smells of sea salt & maple everything, PSLs are all the rave & warm, dark florals are so in! ๐ŸŒป

Aside from my obsessions with fall-scented candles & PSLs, I swoon over Target’s fall clothing pieces. Every. Single. Time! One of their newer lines, Who What Wear, is prime.

The bubble sleeves, the auburn florals & the pinstripes, SAY WHAAAT?! Yes. All in one. You need to check out this bubble sleeve shirt. No joke!

I love pieces that can easily transition from work to casual. Those are the pieces that build a staple wardrobe to can carry on for seasons. Pair this with a pair of navy pants and cognac heels, you’re set from 9-5. Switch it up for after hours with destroyed denim, a statement necklace & brown leather ankle booties.

Alright all! What is your favorite fall fashion piece/style/pattern? How do you rock it?! I’d love to hear! ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒพ

Thanks for reading – Xx

Fall-like Weekend-wear

Good evening, readers! 🌛 This weekend's weather has been perfect so far – not too steamy, just enough sun yesterday & just the right amount of clouds & cool breezes today. Talk about early autumn weather!! 🍂🌾

With the slow change in weather comes a transition of wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes this shift is tough to gauge because summer temps can linger into the late fall. Denim is a great staple for these fluctuations, & grey is an easy neutral for nearly any outfit!

I paired this off the shoulder, striped, flowy top with dark denim jeans & Merona pearl sandals. Add a statement necklace & in all set. Plus, how can any girl turn down pearls, even costume pearls??

A few things that I'm obsessing over:
– the sleeves on this top are split all the way up & adds so much flare
– the jeans are a high-low hem – perfect for shorter females like me so they get right at the ankle 😉
– the pearl sandals are Steve Madden dupes!
– all these pieces (excluding the pearls) are from Target! Seriously, my holy grail. I found the pearl slide sandals on a blogger's Instagram, looked a bit more into them and found that Steve Madden sells them for nearly triple the price at Target. AND they're so comfy! I 12/10 recommend you check them out – also sold in black!

What is your favorite not-quite-but-almost-fall-weekend-look?! What pieces are staples as you start rolling out the new wardrobe? 🌻

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

Fall Essentials

Happy November 1st, all! The start of a beautiful month – nature and spiritual-wise. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ“ฟ

I feel like this is a commonly covered topic, but it’s always a blast to put together (& see others’) essentials for the season! I like to stick with basics for essentials because you can easily pair them with those fun-patterned, uniquely colored pieces. And yes, somewhat similar to my last post/a spin-off… but enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

1. Skinny black pants – these babies can go with virtually any color and texture. You dress them up, dress them down, dress them however you want! 

All black everything โ–ช๏ธ

2. A blanket scarf – a heavier scarf can work for any sized woman (if wrapped correctly)! Promise (http://kellyinthecity.com/how-to-tie-a-blanket-scarf/). A blanket scarf adds a bit of personality and unique flare to an outfit, especially if you’re in hurry. 

BIG SIDE NOTE: Yesterday, I didn’t have much with me for an outfit change between work & meeting my boyfriend, so I wore all black along with my mult-maroon/cream scarf and maroon flats. It worked. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

S/o to Braulio Fontanez for taking some great shots at Schiller Park

+ *EVEN BIGGER SIDE NOTE: if any of you aren’t native to Columbus and are in the area sometime, I highly recommend visiting Schiller Park in German Village. It’s beautiful scenery, good, calming vibes and an interesting history ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ‚


Alrighty! What are some of your fall wardrobe essentials? What’s your favorite piece to wear and how do you pair it?

Until next time, Xx
