Blush is big this season. I love the versatility of this shade. The soft hue makes a polished work-wear look. This beautiful rose quartz necklace is a fabulous find and is elegant enough to wear to work as well as be a part of your evening look.
Houndstooth is the new black. I love this vintage skirt for fall when paired with the trendy wine colored sweater. The look also transitions easily from 9-5 to happy hour.
I am having a relaxed day. That means spending my day with my boyfriend (jeans). 🙂 Hope you have an easy breezy day today!
When the leaves start to fall and the weather gets chilly, one timeless pattern always makes a stylish appearance: plaid! There’s just something about the checkered prints that feels so right for cooler weather. I am delighted to partake in the trend every year. This sequin-collared classic button down shirt is a fresh way to wear this timeless look. Continue reading
Happy Hump Day! In the last few weeks of summer, it is likely to get excited about the new and upcoming fall fashion that is already so prevalent in all the stores. But, when the temperatures are still soaring high it is hard to incorporate fall weather friendly items into your outfit. My solution is to add fall accents. This cotton tee with faux-leather details is soft and breezy enough for a warm afternoon. When paired with a skater skirt in a deep plum color, the outfit will make you look fall ready while keeping you comfortable in the final days of summer.
Pair the look with some neutral accessories and a statement necklace to match the high neckline and ready to conquer your day in style.
I like to play with bright colors to brighten up a wintery day.
Happy Thursday! I have been completely off the grid busy with some much needed family time for the past couple weeks. My parents are visiting all the way from India. (Yay!!) But, I have missed you and I have missed blogging. It’s a beautiful day in the Chicagoland area and today I am talking about a farmer favorite. Overalls may have kicked off in a big way during the spring, but the throwback style is carrying over for the colder months. I am so happy it is here to stay for fall, only now the one-piece styles are longer and ready to be layered with our favorite jackets and knits. Overall, I am obsessed.
Overalls are inherently comfortable, so I embraced the causal feel. When dressing them down, the main goal is to keep them from looking disheveled. It is important to pay attention to the details, like swapping flats for a heeled shoe and making sure to wear a slim-fitting top. These leopard print wedges are a comfortable choice and align with the daytime feel.
The temperatures are dropping which means it is boots season. A flat boot is versatile and chic. A girl’s got to have something to dance and jump around in the beautiful fallen leaves. I am very excited for this time of the year as the weather gets cooler and our closets welcome the fall jackets and boots.
Structured jackets are hot this season. The trick is to pay attention to details such as the stand-up contrast collar and the button detail on this jacket. Designers everywhere are all about fitted silhouettes that modernize old-school fabrics and styles such as tweed and military. Continue reading
A printed peplum top can be the perfect piece for an Office-To-Evening transition. Make a statement both at work and play with this top in way-fun print. Decked in a funky print and a flattering peplum fit there is no limit to the many ways to rock this top.
While you may find yourself already falling hard for some of fall’s hottest trends, I wouldn’t count out the high-low maxi just yet. Thought of mostly as a summer favorite, the romantic skirt, which not only frames a fabulous pair of heels but also cascades into a dramatic tail hem, has the power to be a major player in your transitional wardrobe. Typically when it comes to wearing a flowy maxi, the “rules” say to stick with a fitted top to counterbalance the skirt silhouette. But with summer officially over, a new list of rules has emerged. I say it’s time to try the complete opposite and go with something a little more loose and unexpected for fall like a soft embellished sweater.
How was your week? Mine seems to have gone by in a blink of an eye. Personally, it was one of those weeks where things just would not go as planned but I made it through. All’s well that ends well! I did get to hang out with some fun friends and also meet new fantastic people through blogger events. So happy about that. I am really looking forward to this weekend. My husband and I plan to start the ‘finally-decorating-our-living-room’ project. We moved into our place over a year ago. Then life happened and our decorating plans got stowed away in some forgotten corner (specially for our living room). We put some furniture in and the space became comfortable. It is very functional right now but, I would love some art and key pieces to make the beautiful space more symbolic of us as a couple. My latest decorating blog crush is ‘Little Green Notebook‘. It is very resourceful and you can easily spend hours on her site. (trust me! Been there, done that till late late last night). I am inspired. Only time will tell when or how our artsy project will turn into reality. Continue reading
