Winter Jacket Roundup

Posted on 1 min read 83 views

 

Hey lovelies,

 

We’ve gone through my winter style wheelhouse for the most part, except for one key wardrobe element- winter jackets! I’m a huge fan of a stylish winter jacket to keep you cozy and chic all winter long. I prefer long-line jackets and parkas, which emphasize length and height for taller, slender girls. Wearing long parkas can often make more petite girls look shorter, so I recommend a jacket that hits at the hip or slightly higher to keep proportionate and stylish!

 

Fur and faux-fur details are also a favorite of mine. Nordstrom has several fur trim jackets from rabbits, foxes, and coyotes that are so impossibly chic and soft- I’m obsessed.

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!

Fall Obsession: Plaid Blazer

Hey, lovelies!

 

Often when fall rolls around and jackets hit the stores, I like to take the opportunity to play with lengths and hemlines. Pairing a mini skirt with a long jacket is visually interesting, as is pairing a cropped jacket with a long maxi.

 

I’ve broken up the outfit length in an unexpected way by pairing a midriff-baring crop with a high-waist faux leather skirt. While this look is sexy in an of itself, it makes an interesting statement when pairing a masculine, structured blazer over it in a grey-tone plaid (which is coming into style this season.) While I wouldn’t recommend wearing this almost-racy outfit in the boardroom, it’s a refreshing and fashionable twist for lunch out with the girls.

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.

 

Finally, use the code notbasicblonde_20 when checking out on SHEIN to score 20% off. Happy shopping!

Why I’m Addicted to Amazon Prime This Summer

Posted on 1 min read 29 views

 

Amazon Prime has made my summer. If you don’t have a subscription, you need to get one, ASAP. It’s an inexpensive monthly subscription, and you get free two-day shipping, and access to movies and TV shows that stream through your TV or device. Plus, Amazon Prime Day, anyone?

 

But the reason I’m absolutely addicted this summer is I have found all my pool party and sunning accessories on the site, for cheap! And they’re delivered right to my door. Everything from cover-ups to festive sunnies, swimsuits, and floaties… most of my essential summer pieces have come from Amazon!

 

Check out some of my top finds below, and let me know what your favorite score on Amazon has been!

A Summer in Yellow

Posted on 1 min read 26 views

Dress: VICI  Heels: Forever 21  Ring: Cartier  Bracelet: Cartier

Today’s look is one of my favorite new pieces from VICI. This boho free-flowing dress sits off the shoulder and has an attractive ruffle detailing. The lemony yellow shade is so perfect for summer, and accentuates that warm sunny tan so well!

 

I paired the pleated dress with my nude studded heels and gold jewelry that mirrors the warm tones of the dress. This look is so perfect for more casual daytime occasions. It could make a perfect poolside coverup or a romantic look for a day date. Check out the dress and more options on VICI. I’m in love with all their bright summer shades!
