SUMMER TO FALL

Silly me bought a few spring dresses from Tobi right when it started to get cold outside. The solution? Instead of packing them away, I came up with a few summer to fall looks.

Hopefully, these looks will inspire you to hang onto your lighter pieces for a little while longer!

What? No, I’m not cold. Why? *shivering*

I couldn’t resist the scallop detail of this lavender shift. With pompon shoes and a denim moto-jacket, it makes an easy date night look (note to self: next time, wear tights.).

The great thing about living with your fashionable boyfriend? You get to borrow his sweaters.

The off the shoulder look lives on into the colder months with over the knee boots, my SO’s cardigan, and a berry lip. So cozy!

True story: I wore this dress on a 12 hour flight right before taking these photos. There’s nary a wrinkle and I look fresh as a daisy!

Embrace the new season and pair your easy breezy dress with booties, a light anorak, and a neckerchief.

IT’S ALL RAINBOWS

Jessie Marie and I found these rainbow panels and thought “Hey, that would make a great backdrop!” Too bad one of the panels had some……unfortunate graffiti. I did my best to hide it with my cat purse. Can you guess what it says?

This is my official summer bag. Some people want a basic, round straw bag. I am not one of them. Give me all the cat-themed things.

Speaking of cats, do you like my top? Look closely, there’s more to it than meets the eye. At first glance, it looks like a floral motif. On further inspection, you’ll see kitties! This print is by one of my favorite artists on Redbubble, Burcu Korkmazyurek. Want one? Get it here.

WHAT SHE PINNIN’?

  1. (Clockwise from top left) These amazing slippers are sold out, but I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) they’ll be restocked. 2. I may or may not have this ruffled blouse in my cart and I may or may not buy it right after I post this. 3. Into The Gloss covered the best of the best makeup looks from NYFW. My favorite? The bare-faced look Proenza Schouler sent down the runway. 4. These gem enamel pins are more affordable than the real-deal and look way cool pinned on a black leather jacket.

WORKING WITH IT

Converting your day look to a night out can be tough work, but it’s easier than you think with the Au Rate‘s elegant jewels.

So, how do we do it? Let’s get down to business.

Work Day to Happy Hour

I have a feeling fashion girls everywhere will be swapping their overalls for suspenders. You’ll look strapping in suspended trousers with a button up shirt and low heels at the office. For work, I like to keep my jewelry simple. Au Rate’s Mini Charm Pyramid ring is delicate and perfect for layering.

For night, keep the suspenders. Substitute the button up with a crushed velvet wrap top (perfect for holiday) and gold mule sandals for the conservative heels. These Flower earrings are the perfect addition to step your happy hour game up.

Errands to Girls Night

Saturdays are for markets, laundromats, and the couch. Lucky for me, wearing sweatpants outdoors isn’t frowned upon any more. Pair this sleek pair with a slouchy cool sweater and your favorite kicks.

Don’t even worry about washing your hair. Just throw on a velvet baseball hat and head out the door. Add just a touch of glam with this mini charm bracelet.

Girls night! When it’s time to hit the town with your ladies, impress with less. Pair that same sweater with a wrap skirt, fun heels, and simple pendant necklace.
