Perfect Shearling Vest.

One of the things that I love about fashion is how trends are re-interpreted and tweaked over time. Shearling vests, for example, are having a moment right now. And I, for one, am loving it. The first shearling vest I ever wore was bought nearly ten years ago. It was warm, boxy, and cut a bit larger than it probably needed to be. The style of my old shearling vest was sporty and not really meant to be worn with anything other than super casual outfits. But I loved it anyway.  

Fast forward to this gorgeous shearling vest from Catch Bliss Boutique--it's everything that I wanted it to be and then some. Supple shearling on the inside, all wrapped up in exquisite faux suede. The color is a warm shade of cognac and the fit is just right so that it hangs beautifully. The thing that I'm most excited about, however, is that it's so incredibly versatile. 
I can dress it up or down--always a plus! 
Wear it with jeans? Check. Wear it with a skirt? Check, check. Wear it over a dress? Abso-frickin-lutely!

Khaki Blazer.

Truth be told, I have been looking for an affordable classic khaki blazer for as long as I can remember. I just never seemed to be able to find the perfect one. So when I came across this Forever21 blazer this past August, it was love at first sight. I loved that the color was a darker, richer khaki, and I couldn't wait to wear it in the Fall. 
Well, my friends, Fall is finally here! So, be prepared to see lots of this little number in the coming weeks. 
Since I bought it quite a few months ago, the exact one was no longer available. But, I did find a few similar ones that are equally fabulous (linked below).
Happy shopping!

Scalloped Skirt.

The first time I saw a photo of this scalloped button-front skirt I knew I had to have it.
The most difficult decision then became "should I get it in navy or in camel?"
As shown below, I decided to go with the camel color; if only because I already own a navy skirt in a similar length and I wanted to change things up a bit. Well, friends, let me be the first to tell you that this skirt did not disappoint!  It is ridiculously soft and the color is even more beautiful in person. Because of the rich hue of the skirt, I decided to pair it with a striped sweater in a contrasting color to break things up and add depth to the look. Finally, I added a chunky cardigan, navy ankle boots, and a blinged out necklace.

Scalloped skirt, you had me at "hello". <3

Modern Retro.

Even though I whole-heartedly appreciate and love the variety of clothing options that we have available to us today, I've always been infatuated with classic, ultra feminine silhouettes. Anything that says "I Am Woman, Here Me Roar".
Something about this silhouette just makes me feel like I have my sh*t together. 
And who couldn't use more of that?!
