On Repeat

Vintage Bomber Jacket  // American Apparel Crop Top // Forever 21 Skirt // Cole Haan Booties // Marc Jacobs Clutch (old) // Ray-Ban Aviators

This shirt has been on repeat the past week, partially because I'm somewhat obsessed with crop tops and also I know my time is limited as the weather starts to turn.  I absolutely love pairing it with every high-waisted skirt in my closet.  All black outfit and obnoxiously orange clutch,  I think I'm inadvertently channeling halloween right now.  Tell me, have you decided on your costume yet?

A few of my favorite things

American Apparel Crop Top // Anthropologie Skirt (old, similar here) // B Brian Atwood Heels (old) // Prada (Frada) Sunnies

There are several pieces in my wardrobe I love but rarely get the chance to wear.  I know when making the purchase that it will spend most of the time hanging in my closet but the pure delight I get from even just seeing it there on the hanger is well worth it.  Looking at it knowing it is mine makes me supremely happy.  Just try being in a bad mood while wearing a giant tutu.  Trust me, it's near impossible.

Fall Trends: Part Trois

Winter seems the hardest season to showcase the latest trends, must-have accessories and fabulous footwear.  As someone who is perpetually cold, once the temperature drops I become less and less concerned with how I look and more and more focused on how I can function outside without freezing.    This season's answer came to me in various shades of pastels.  There is just something so effortless and striking about throwing on a coat in the softest shade of pink.  And, anything with a three quarter-length sleeve lends the perfect excuse to pick up the most epic pair of attention-grabbing gloves.

1. Zara Masculine Studio Overcoat

2. MaxMara Wool Coat

3. H&M Wool-blend Coat

Confession:  I had to google how to say/spell three in french.  Yikes...

Fall Trends - Part Deux

Popular with models and various beautiful people, the midi is notoriously hard to wear but when done right, oh it is just oh so good.  I love the volume, glamour and 50's influence in the shape of this skirt.  It makes for such a romantic outfit and absolutely necessitates a heeled shoe to go along with it.  With Summer officially over, the midi is making me incredibly excited for cooler weather.

1. Topshop Skater Skirt

2. Clover Canyon Midi Skirt

3. Topshop Blue Double Slit Midi Skirt  

4. Tibi Silk Failie Skirt
