I cannot believe its already fall! Where has the summer gone? I’m not a big fan of the fall because all I can think about is that winter is coming and winters in the mid-atlantic are brutal. The only bright side of fall is fashion week — and of course boots, jackets, scarves, comfy sweaters, cuddling by the fireplace and hot cocoa ;). So ladies, without further adieu, it’s time to put away all your sun dresses, bathing suits, and flip flops and get out your jeans, boots, and scarves! To kick-start the fall spirit, I am going to share my favorite denim looks because recently I am seeing denim everywhere! This season, there really is something for everyone. My favorite look is the high wasted flair with a crop top or tucked in blouse. I recently tried on this fabulous pair of Blank NYC jeans at SouthMoonUnder that I think I am going to have to go back and get. They are currently 20% off so don’t miss out!
#1 Rag & Bone Thrasher $295 – these are probably one of my favorite jeans that I have ever bought I just love them! If you are going to go for ripped might as well go all out!
#2 Whitefox Boutique $64.96 AUD
I cannot believe it’s already July and I have not talked about sunglasses! I love love love sunglasses! I never leave the house without a pair, and I even throw on a pair in the winter when it’s not that sunny. I think sunglasses are like shoes, you can’t leave home without them. I also think it’s important to match your sunnies with what you are wearing which is why I have a nice collection that I have compiled over the years. I am very picky with my sunglasses and I’m sure you all know that not all sunglasses look good on everyone so when I get a new pair I get really excited. This past January, I got a pair of these Dita ones that I wore on 4th of July in the picture below. Actually, my husband bought them for himself and I stole them because I loved them so much. Before these, I think I hadn’t found sunglasses that I really liked in over 2 years. I am very happy with the Dita brand because unlike most sunglass brands, Dita actually designs and makes their own sunglasses and these particular ones have 18 karat gold hardware ;). When you pick up a pair of Dita’s and see the quality and craftsmanship that they put into each pair, you will quickly realize not all sunglasses are equal.
As always, I am going to include a few pairs of my favorite sunglasses that I have seen out there for all you shopaholics out there.
I started this post to share my Christmas eve outfit because I wore my favorite copped sweater. I then thought to myself, why don’t I dedicate this post to exactly that: my cropped sweater obsession? The cropped sweater is a must have for every wardrobe this season. You can style it with a high waisted skirt, high waisted pant, or over a loose blouse with leggings or a skirt. It’s a great piece to dress up or down and keep you cozy all winter long. I love bulky sweaters as well, but feel that the cropped sweater is more flattering and gives you a more polished look. Here are a few of my favorite cropped sweater looks followed by some sweater picks. The first looks is one that I wore on Christmas eve which I also wore at work. As you can see, you can wear it with boots or pumps. Yes ladies, occasionally I do wear outfits more than once, how un-fashionista of me, but if I love something, I definitely wear it again.
Thanks for reading!
