Denim + Lace

So, fall has been messing with my head the last few weeks. It’s tempted me to break out my favorite pieces by dangling a few beautifully crisp days for us to revel in, but then saying “just kidding” and letting the heat come back. And this brings me to the look above. I’ve got my fall booties and denim jacket, and also lace shorts ¬†for the warmer hours in the afternoon. I’ve never worn heels with shorts before- mainly because I have longer legs that quickly make shorts look scandalous rather than classy. This outfit really made me smile though, because I felt like it worked in the latter way. I also always love mixing textures and lace+ denim is one of my favorite combos.

I’ve always loved the look of all black with red heels. So sophisticated, and such an easy way to look fashionable, yet timeless. For this look, I chose these black pants with a subtle floral print, just to add a little more visual interest to an otherwise flat outfit. I’m pleased with how it turned out, and I definitely love the way these pants look with the red heels.

Navy + Teal

New favorite piece in my wardrobe – this teal pencil skirt from J. Crew. It is so versatile in terms of color combinations and also lined, so I can use it into colder months. Deciding what color to pair with this skirt for this post was tough. And I love having that problem. You know you’ve made a good purchase when you can’t even count the options for pairing.

Happy hunting!

Black and white Stripes and pale pink were made for each other. It’s one of my favorite combos, and I love this top, knotted to the side and worn over this fun, full skirt. I also love wearing these shoes in late Summer, since they’re suede, but also open-toe. They’re one of my go-to pre-Fall wardrobe staples.

I hope everyone has had a great week and has fun plans for the weekend! Thanks for reading!

Pre-fall tweed

Every woman needs a versatile jacket for pre and early fall wear. This tweed 3/4 sleeve piece is one of my favorites. It handles cooler evenings and lingering warm days amazingly. Plus, it’s so easy to dress up and down!

On a side note- if you see some pumps even close to this color, buy them! They’re so fun and cheery. Plus, you can make them work year round.
