Fallin’ for Suede 

Happy Friday-eve, readers! 😉🍂  & to top it off, the fall weather we’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 that’s slithered its way back into the fashion scene (which I’m so happy about!) is snap-front mini skirts. LIKE HELLO, yes, please give me all of them + every color of tights! 🤗😍 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. 😉  I paired this with a classic cream sweater from way back in the day, but it’s adorable with a plain or patterned turtleneck or a black & White stripped tee. Throw on neutral tights + your favorite booties & you’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? I’d love to hear!

Fab Fall Favorites

Ahh, happy fall, y’all (even though fall really started about a month ago…)! 🍁
I’ve been wanting (dying) to post some fall favorites from my wardrobe for a hot second for a couple reasons:

  1. Fall has THE best colored clothing/accessory pieces (or maybe I just love browns and maroons?)
  2. Fall is all about layering!

Some major trends that remained consistent from last fall were leather booties, plaid button-downs and blanket scarves! With both comes comfort and warmth – what more could you ask for?! Not much. 

A rare but perfect find at Nordstrom Rack! (Franco Sarto boots)
Army boots can add a fun “edge” to any casual outfit (local boutique, Figleaf) and darker colored blanket scarf from Forever xxi
Plaid is a perfect go-to. Bracelets always add a bit of personality & style, too 😉

A new-ish fall fashion trend I’m obsessed with is all things maroon! Especially maroon tights and pants – so fun and colorful, a perfect match for the season! 🙆🏻👖🍁

Recently I picked up maroon tights at Target to pair with this fall-floral, navy dress from Vernacular (here in Columbus)! 

Have any of you tried out any fun maroon styles yet?! What are some of your favorite fall go-tos?

Until next time, Xx

Layers +Layers

Happy weekend, ya’ll! ‘Tis the season for holiday cheer and Jack Frost nipping at your rose! While it may be chilly, you can stay warm while still looking your best. The answer: layers

Plaids, basic tees, sweaters and vests are your best friends. Oh, not to mention, statement necklaces! 

This past week I played around with a few layered looks that are casual chic, perfect for any day occasion! Ranging from a plaid with a navy sweater to a fur vest and basic tee, and a quarter zip with a multi-colored plaid.  

Layer your look

Have fun, play around with colors and textures and create your own layered looks to stay cozy and cute this holiday season! Now it’s your turn to share your faves! 😉

Until next time, Xx

Falling for Fall Fashion

Good morning, readers! 

Ahh, fall is officially here! It’s the perfect weather for early morning runs- mid-60s and cool breezes- and fun fall fashion. 

One of my favorite items for fall are blanket scarves (I have yet to purchase mine)! +It can be tough to find one that fits just right when you only stand roughly 5’3″ high ☺️ because some are overwhelmingly large, nugg like a blanket you snug up with on a movie night, while others are just enough textured fabric.  

Plaid wool blanket scarf

I came across this pretty neat blanket scarf style (left) on @pinkpineappleshop’s Instagram this morning and had to share! This shop also sells blanket scarves, so give them a look! I love the dimension and mixes of texture in this look– definitely not something you’d spot strolling down the street every day! +The blanket scarf resembles a sweater… But paired with the perfect belt, you have an easy and fresh fall look! SO FUN! I love that this is paired with mid-wash jeans and high brown boots– chic, comfy and cozy!

So let’s hear: what are some of your favorite fall fashion looks?! I’d love to see photos! 

Until next time, Xx
