#OOTD / cozy knit pullover

fall feelings // #OOTD #boho #fall #fashion #fblogger

Happy Friday!  The mornings and evenings have been a bit cooler (well, yesterday was humid but whatever) and I'm SO looking forward to wearing cozy sweaters and booties.  Even if I have to change into a tank and cutoffs by 10 am.  Mes Demoiselles always has amazing fall pieces and this Mixed Knit Pullover (also avail here and cardigan version here) is everything I look for in a fall sweater.  It's cozy, slouchy and textured.  I'm still eyeing these 3x1 crop fringe jeans, but I know I'm probably too petite for them.  I have always leaned toward black booties for fall, but for the past few years have leaned toward lighter tones.  I find it's easier to transition your summer clothes into fall than with black.  (Unless you're someone who loves wearing black all year round.)  I love these camel Rag & Bone Walker Booties (they come in two tones) and this MICHAEL Michael Kors Jamie Saddle Bag.

embroidered check top


As soon as I saw this beautiful embroidered check top on the ZARA site, I wanted to buy it immediately.  But it wasn't in stock yet so I clicked 'email me when available'.  Then waited.  And waited.  It felt like weeks (it was probably only a few days).  I stalked the website just in case the 'email me when available' wasn't working.  I finally received the email and it was like Christmas!  This was a top I needed in my closet.  It's perfect for transitioning into fall.  The embroidery is beautiful but I'm obsessed with the sleeves.  I originally paired this check top with dark blue skinny jeans for dinner (since it was actually below 80 last week in the evening), but it heated up again so this time paired it with cutoffs.  P.s. I've been living in these One Teaspoon Bandits.

boho is best

Isabel Marant Etoile Booties;
Brixton Dalila Hat in Brown (colour I'm wearing sold out);
Prada Sunglasses}

'For long sun-stained afternoons, early market mornings and starry festival nights.
This pretty little Shift Dress is an ode to the effortlessness of long Sunday mornings by the sea. This one is loose fitting with boho sleeves and made from the softest rayon in our Indian Princess print, reminiscent of the 70's.
Pair it with loose locks, boho jewels and ankle boots.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

wear to work: Monday to Casual Friday

#OOTD: Monday to Casual Friday

Happy Friday!  I know at this point of the day you're just thinking about the weekend (and possibly a glass of wine), but I put together some outfits to take you from Monday to 'Casual Friday'.  I think everyone should own a great pair of black cropped trousers (GAP, J.Crew and ZARA are my go-tos), a white blouse, a blue shirt, a black blazer, a pair (or two) of flats (or heels, if that's your preference!), a pair (or two) of booties/boots, a sweaterdress (or 10 - you just put them on and go!), a cardigan (or two) for layering (offices are usually chilly), a suede and/or leather skirt and, last but not least, a pair of jeans (I recommend a dark wash) for 'Casual Friday'. 

What's great about these items is that you can mix and match them.  So if you're looking to go shopping for fall clothes, I would start by looking at your closet and seeing if you need these items (or if any of them need updating).  And then you build from there.  The key is to add pieces that can work with the rest of your wardrobe, like the Aritzia (vegan) suede skirt, above.  Just swap out the sweaterdress, add one of the shirts shown above and you're good to go!  Once your basics are covered, then you can start adding in some fun items, like these pink J.Crew pants.  You also don't want to buy something that doesn't work with the rest of your wardrobe (I found that out the hard way).
