Hello, lovelies!


Now that we’re well into fall, headwear is beginning to make its way into my outfit repertoire. Fashionable hats are one of my favorite ways to stay chic and stylish — while keeping my ears warm!


That’s why I’m so in love with my look today. A chic pink beret paired with a mod sweater and skirt set is playful and eye-catching while suitably warm for the chilly Atlanta breeze.


Since berets are a trendy staple this fall, I’ve pulled some of my favorites that are out this season. You can click on the image below to be taken directly to each beret if you need a closer look. Boinsoir, mon amis!



Booties, Booties, Booties Rocking Everywhere…Favorite Fall Boots!

Posted on 1 min read 53 views

Hey lovelies!


One of my favorite things about the fall season is the boots! Ankle boots, knee-high, over the knee… I love them all. Boots are a fabulous way to keep your toes warm while keeping your look chic. Nordstrom has stocked their selection of this seasons boots and I had to share the ones I’m absolutely in love with!


Boots elongate the legs and look great with anything! If you’re on the petite side, high heeled boots are a great option to add some length to your frame. Ankle boots tucked into skinny jeans are my favorite casual look, or you can push the fashion envelope by pairing shorts or a skirt with your favorite vibrant pair like these pink beauties I’m rocking.



Check them out below, and I’ve included links so you can click through to any pair that you absolutely can’t live without. Happy shopping! XOXO








What I Wore: Fall Floral Pantsuit

Posted on 1 min read 46 views


Hey lovelies!


I wanted to share an elevated fall casual look I recently wore. This Leaf Print Tie Waist Top & Wide Leg Pant is from SHEIN! I scored it recently when hunting around for on-trend fall pieces that center around the elevated and deconstructed suit set look that I’ve been talking about in past posts.


This look is another refreshing spin on what I call office couture. It’s fun, flirty and youthful while still being totally office appropriate. If you just can’t get behind the Jackie O skirt suit revival, this power pantsuit look may be for you! The wrap top is flattering and accentuates the waist, while the dropped neckline allows you to show off a nice statement necklace. The wide leg bottoms flirt with your ankle, which is my favorite way to show off nice heels or even booties.


Are you obsessed? Click here to be taken right to this outfit on SHEIN. If you normally wear a size S, I would size up to a medium or large in this piece.

Suiting Up

Posted on 1 min read 47 views

Hey lovelies,




One of my favorite trends is coming back in a major way, with interesting presentations. You may have noticed in my last few posts that I’m rocking some serious suits! Deconstructing this timeless fashion staple, or adding interesting new materials, details and more is all over the runways this season.



Today I’m featuring one of my fall favorites, a fresh take on the suit. This double-breasted shiny blue blazer is a show-stopper in the office or as a daytime look. At first glance, it looks like you shrugged into your boyfriend’s blazer and went off to slay the office. The haute-couture androgynous look is so in.

Relaxed pants that skim the ankles are a great opportunity to dress down in sneaks as I did or rock a fierce heel. The look is fresh, new and unexpected.

You’ll find links to these pieces, plus a few others I’ve picked out below!
