Button Up

I’m not quite ready to read, research or write about sweaters at the moment, but I am ready to transition out of sandals and tanks and into more of a sophisticated fall like wardrobe.

Blouses, for me, are a great transition and hold piece. There’s not one item sexier or more classic than a great blouse. Completely versatile and worn dressed up or down, a blouse brings individual style up a notch. From high end vintage to a more modest H&M find, a great cut blouse is easily accessible and affordable by everyone. As we move into a more sophisticated time of the year, button up and start reaching for those feminine touches. Have a great weekend.  xoxo

In The Trenches.

Burberry

We had a little tease of summer this week, but don’t put away your coats just yet.  We have a couple more weeks of chilly nights and just enough moisture to give us a headache where our hair is concerned.  Although reaching for our winter coats is probably in the past…Finding a transition cover up can sometimes be more trouble than it’s worth.

One of my favorite pieces are trench coats.  They have such an understated elegance, and you can literally be wearing the rattiest pair of jeans and still look incredibly polished and put together.  Whether you’re running off to work or running after your kids, a trench coat serves the purpose of keeping warm and looking good.

A trench is definitely an investment staple so don’t be afraid to pay a little out of your comfort zone.  It’s a a silhouette that doesn’t change and you’re guaranteed a lifetime of wear.  xoxo
