Basically, everyone should have a camel coat in their closet. Timeless. Versatile. Classic.
Here, I opted for a camel on camel (on camel) ensemble. And even though the camel shades vary, it works to my advantage by preventing the look from becoming too matchy-matchy. I also tried to balance all the 'camel' with gold accents and dark jeans to help elongate the legs.
Thank you to my photographer for venturing out into the cold with my to take these pictures :)
Merry Christmas Eve! I thought I would share one more cute look before the Holidays.
Fairisle prints are everywhere these days. So when I saw this gorgeous navy sweater at the Loft, with hints of pink and orange, I knew I had to have it. It's my first fairisle, and so pretty, right? There are limited quantities/sizes available online, so swing by your local Loft store to see what they have in stock. (PS - everything is pretty much on sale right now!) It might make the perfect last minute gift for yourself. Be sure to scroll the banner below and shop my other fairisle favorites. Happy Shopping!
Hello again, it's me. Quick joke: why did Adele cross the road? ...... To say Hello from the other side. I know its corny, but I just had to...
Anywho, I wanted to share this AMAZING jacket. It is currently on sale at half off (only $63), plus you can save an additional 25% with at the Lord & Taylor Friends and Family sale with code "friends". This is such an amazing steal, among many others. But you have to act quick, the Lord and Taylor Friends and Family Sale ends today.
I've only worn this coat a couple times now and already received tons of compliments. It's a great winter jacket that will be sure to last you for years to come. But, it runs large so I recommend sizing down.
My cousin Lisa was married over the weekend in beautiful Portsmouth, NH. I am beyond excited for her and her husband Ryan as they start the next chapter of their lives. It was an amazing weekend full of love, laughter, parties and a bit of over-indulgence.
For this winter wedding, I opted for this rich burgundy colored dress with sleeves and delicate lace collar details. (I actually got this dress last year for Christmas and had only worn it once. I usually love any opportunity to buy a new dress for an upcoming event [see post here] but sometimes its better to dig deep into the closet - you're bound to find something perfect for your occasion.) To keep the look a little bit lighter and since the temps were in the 50's, I decided on nude tights instead of black. This dress with beautiful lace details really speaks for itself so accessories were kept to a minimum with a simple black leather clutch, black pumps and a black fur vest (just incase).
I worked with Lisa & Ryan prior to their wedding, designing invitations, wedding programs, weekend itineraries, table cards and escort cards. I'll be sure to share those details in a later post. Stay tuned!
This season particularly, blanket scarfs are everywhere! You may find your self wondering: "How the heck do I wear this thing?" or "How do I get the most use out of my scarf?" There are many possibilities but I wanted to share 3 of my favorite ways to style my blanket scarves:
1 - Tied around the neck.
This is a great way to add those last minute finishing touches to your look, plus it provides added warmth for those days that a coat just isn't necessary.
2 - Draped long around the neck
This option adds length and dimension to the overall look, while providing additional warmth. Pair with your favorite pea-coat or just by itself.
3 - Wrapped around your shoulders as a poncho.
This option is perfect for travelling (say long Holiday car rides) or running those last minute Holiday errand (you know? when you don't want to wear a bulky jacket). For a dressier look, say grabbing drinks with your girl friends after work, take your favorite belt and tie around the poncho at your waist.
I hope these looks provide you with a bit of inspiration this season. My exact scarf is currently sold out online, but you may still find it in stores. Shop an almost identical version or black option.
Pane (or window pane) print is becoming increasingly popular (see shift dress, coat, skirt, track pants, etc). I first styled these pants in this post. Be sure to shop my look below, and scroll through to find other great pane print pieces.
