Stripes on the Street

It was almost 50 degrees in Jersey City today, and though temps are going to drop, we’re predicted to have some of the same weather next week. Is this December? Is this Global Warming?? Without getting too political here, I just wanted to post a transitional outfit that’s all about key pieces that look (and work) as great on their own as they do all together. And it all starts with this zebra-striped midi skirt.

The Perfect Party Dress

I hope you and yours had a very Happy Thanksgiving. And that if you actually ventured into the physical madness that is Black Friday you survived! We passed two huge traffic backups into outlet malls on our way up to the cabin, and I’m not ashamed to say that I was beyond relieved to be driving on. I did not even shop online! But now holiday celebrations are going to kick into high gear. We already have 4 parties and 3 events on the calendar. So…the perfect party dress is a must. And for my money, this is it.

Pattern Clash

I don’t know if I’m all about overalls, but I am all about mixing and matching my favorite fall patterns. If that means taking a walk on the wild side, then count me in. Layering on classic houndstooth check and lovable leopard just feels right. It’s my “pattern clash” of choice, and I’d encourage you to give your own version a try.

Simple Dress, Statement Boots

As much as I get a kick out of putting together new outfit combinations, sometimes I just want to keep it minimal…but without sacrificing style. That’s why I gravitated to this simple dress. I’m loving how effortlessly elegant, and flattering, its flowy silhouette is. I stepped up the vibe with these statement boots. Their modern take on the Western trend is on point!

Favorite Fall Fashion Finds

This post is all about a few of my favorite Fall fashion finds. Some were shopped directly from my wardrobe once I finished my seasonal closet changeover, while others are new purchases already in heavy rotation. Like these high-rise cigarette jeans I’ve been wearing with everything. Seriously, I love them so much I have to stop myself from reaching for them every day. Or do I? (Spoiler alert: wearing them as I write this post!)

Leather Weather

Well, hello there. I’m not going to ask if you missed me or my posts, but it’s been awhile. (I missed you!) Not sure what kind of social media funk I was in, but it seems to have lifted with the crisp autumn air that’s finally arrived. Which gave me the perfect reason to pair these amazing black leather jeans (splurge alert!) with a cozy sweater and teddy coat, as well as some covetable accessories. Happy Fall, y’all!

Pattern Play

When I’m not loving all things leopard print, I’m falling pretty hard for deep-hued florals. They still feel fresh and fun with the weather staying closer to summer temps than those of autumn, especially when they take shape in a fabulous, flutter-sleeved midi dress like this. But cooler days are definitely ahead, so I’ve been playing with how to keep these two trendy patterns going, and better yet, going together.

Keep It Casual

This black-and-white look is all about looking pulled together when you’re looking forward to some down time. Full disclosure: I shopped my closet for most of it, but that’s because by sticking to this classic palette, it was fast and easy to style old pieces into a brand new look. Sure, keep it casual. But keep it chic, too.

Easy, Tiger!

Greetings, fierce fashionistas. The Urban Dictionary defines this classic Yorkshire term (you go, Brits) as “Calm down!” Well, I’m feeling calm, but I’m not feeling Fall. Yet. It was 93 degrees in Jersey City yesterday! So it might just be this tropical jungle weather that’s got me feeling all tiger-y. (Yeah, not a real word, but it works.) Or, it might be WhoWhatWear x Target, the collection that’s killing it this season with all things animal print. (Excuse the non-PC pun, please.) Read on for all the details about what I’m wearing these days, especially this on-trend, tiger stripe top that’s an easy, versatile and affordable way to add this must-have print to your Fall wardrobe.
