Fall trend? Check…

September 25, 2018

Still basking in the glory that is New York Fashion Week, I’m filled to the brim with outfit inspiration and already looking forward to trying these trends out for myself. Every year, Fashion Week is sprinkled with a few key trends that hit nearly half of the runway shows. This year, designers like Versace, Michael Kors, Fendi, Miu Miu, Balenciaga, and more have all boarded the S.S. Check, utilizing patterns like tartan, gingham, and glen plaid to name a few. I have to admit, there’s something nostalgic about this check trend that is whimsical and retro. And I absolutely can’t get enough. Continue Reading

Varsity rules…

September 13, 2018

Leaves are falling, school buses are running, and pumpkin spice lattes are back….it’s sweater weather, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic! Cable knits, turtlenecks and shaggy cardigans will all debut from my closet this fall, but on the first breezy day this year, I was excited to don something a little different: the varsity sweater.

When it comes to closet staples, I’m a big believer in a few things: high-waisted denim, a little bit of sequin and sparkle, statement jackets, and of course – animal print. A bit less traditional than the “you need a beige trench coat in your closet” mantra, but trust me – these are just as useful, if not more so. I mention these particular items because of the versatility factor. Versatility is a quality that I look for when shopping, because it means that I’m able to get the most for my money and style the items in multiple ways, for different kinds of occasions and seasons. They’re timeless pieces that stay relevant despite ever-changing trends. They’re styles that I feel comfortable investing in for the long run. And one of my most recent animal print purchases from Alice + Olivia has my heart purring.
