Cords

I am so excited to match my outfit with the beautiful falling leaves. The bright colors and sunny weather are a perfect recipe for a happy day. I am someone who always gets inspired by nature. 

Corduroy pants are a staple for fall. With the thick fabric and the comfortable skinny leg these pants are in heavy rotation in my closet. I am excited to wear them with my favorite trench coat on chillier evenings. Definitely a fall must-have for me!!

White & Blue

It seems like the summery days are here to stay and it’s only going to get warmer. A cute cotton skirt is a must for the balmy breezy weather. The flared kinds are my favorite.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find that perfect dress for attending weddings, especially if the event will be held outdoors or the invite hints on a not-so-formal affair. I always prefer to wear something that is classic cut & easy to move in.  This dress is casual enough for an outdoor setting and formal enough for a relaxed wedding party. I wore it all evening without having to “adjust” once!

For a more  dressy look, I would change the shoes to these nude strappy sandals.
