Got Chucks On With…

I believe that weekends should be spent in only clothes that you love. Today I kept it simple and cozy while exploring local antique & vintage stores. Enjoy – and stay tuned! This ol’ blog is getting a facelift very soon.

Style Vibes: Johnny Cash

It might be because I’m itchin’ for a Nashville trip ASAP…but I’m having a serious Cash moment. No one rocked a suit better in the 60’s than this man:

2.) Ann Taylor leggings (shocker)

Ann Taylor Leggings, Fall Favorites

Built to last, these are by far the highest quality leggings I’ve ever invested in. My favorites are the classic stretch legging, full faux leather legging and the half faux leather ponte legging. Bonus* They’re available in tall and petite!

4.) Vampy lip stains

Sophisticated, sexy and budget-friendly! I’ll definitely be rocking this look through the winter months.

6 Fall Wardrobe Essentials

Fall Uniform, Military Jacket

I tend to be more of a uniform dresser, I like to keep it simple and try to purchase items I know I’ll wear and love until their bitter end. Picking out staples for each season can be tricky. You have to decide what is worth the investment and what you know you love, but will probably toss down the road. Here are my signature Fall essentials that get me through the season, the new fall basics that I think every girl should have in their wardrobe:

Fall Essentials, Fringe Booties

1. Military Jackets 2. Fringe Booties 3. Black Ponte Leggings

4. Classic Leather Bag 5. Striped Tops & Sweaters 6. Minimalist, Everyday Jewelry

Simple fall outfit

Trend Spotting: Kimonos

A friend recently came to me perplexed over the trend flooding her Pinterest and Instagram feed over the past year. They’re rocked at festivals, concerts and all over the internet. But how do you wear this trend without looking “basic?” Simple.

Step One: Be original. Stay true to your personal style and don’t over think it.

Step Two: Avoid the costume. Don’t look like a walking Free People ad. (Unless that’s your thing. You do you girl.)

Step Three: Dress it up and down!

Here are three ways I love to wear mine! 

Throw it over a dress:

OrangeDressWhiteKimono

OrangeDressCloseUp

OrangeDressFull

Got denim and a white tee? Just add bling!:

Give it an edge! Layer a band tee and some leather:

How to: Black & White For Work

IMG_0426

Who said black and white workwear had to be boring? Whether you’re working in corporate or creative, black and white is always safe, but it doesn’t have to look that way. Shake up your staples by incorporating patters and rich textures and fabrics, while adding a pop of color!

What I’m Reading: Lean In For Graduates

What I’m Wearing: Silk Blouse (Similar), Jacquard Skirt, Caged Heels, Watch, Earrings, Lips

5 Things: 6.23

#1.) The Hunt

Ever find that perfect item on Pinterest and have no idea where to find it? Yep there’s finally an app for that. Meet The Hunt! It’s a community full of shopping and fashion-obsessed huntresses like myself searching for and tracking down items for ourselves and others. You can post a photo of what you’re looking for or receive personalized suggestions. Download it here!

#2.) MAC’s Turquatic

Turquatic

This is the perfect Summer scent whether you’ll be at the beach or behind your desk. MAC’s fresh and ocean-inspired fragrance has notes of Anemone, Lotus, Orris, & Corsican Blue Cedar. I opted for the travel-friendly rollerball but will definitely be picking up the full size. I don’t know why I hadn’t given this one a try sooner! 

#3.) DV by Dolce Vita

DvDolceVita

It’s a complete coincidence that my two favorite sandals for summer are DV by Dolce Vita, but no surprise. I love that this brand is always on trend yet still affordable. I picked up both the Caged and Marynn styles from Nordstrom!

#4.) Maxi Skirts

Particularly, this one from Ann Taylor. I have not seen anything like it and I’m excited to see how I can take it from day-to-night. Stay tuned!

#5.) Sam Hunt

Meet your new favorite country singer – and summer soundtrack! I see big things happening for the guy who wrote Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over” and Keith Urban’s recent hit “Cop Car” in the near future. I’ve got his new single “Leave the Night On” on repeat. Who’s on your summer playlist?
