FALL FASHION Has Landed.

Oh yes, it has arrived. Fall is quite possibly my favorite season to dress for. It's the perfect time to combine warm and cold weather pieces to create a look all your own. 

To have style is to repurpose pieces into looks that are unique, innovative and eye-catching. Fall, we thank you for bringing us the perfect weather to do this in. 

So let's get into it, shall we? 

 

MY TOP 5 PIECES TO ROCK THIS FALL: 

 

5. Booties

I put these at the bottom of my list, not because they don't have the biggest place in my heart. They do. I absolutely love booties. This is the time in elementary school where someone would say, "Well why don't you marry them?" And I would boldly reply, "If I could, I would." They are amazing and versatile. They work in any season from the bar to the baby shower. They're glorious. And here are some of my picks:

4. Plaid 

No matter how you characterize your personal style, plaid is an easy-to-wear wardrobe staple for any woman. Plaid is classic and unpretentious; sophisticated and chic.

Pair with your neutral staples (pencil skirt, navy pants, or maybe even white jeans), and you've got the perfect look for a breezy day. 

 
 

3. Hat 

Women always have specific accessories they believe they cannot wear. How do I know this? Because I hear it all the time from my clients. One of those accessories is a hat. People are funny about hats. But the truth is...everyone can wear hats. The key is finding the correct one for your face shape, neck length and style. 

2. Leopard

The fall has a certain richness to it that is captured in everything from the food to the fashion. Which is why I love leopard prints for the fall. It is seductive and sumptuous.  

As Jenna Lyons once said, "As far as I'm concerned, leopard is a neutral." Just like plaid, leopard is bold but works with many different styles in many different scenarios. The trick is knowing where to draw the line. At the office, subtlety is key. During the day, choosing a flowy, more palatable piece. At night...go big or go home. 

1. Suede

Yes, it's in and I'm loving every minute of it! Whether you're obsessed with the 70's (like me) or a millenial who's pulling looks from the 90's, now is the time to shop for suede. One of my favorite parts of having a suede piece in your wardrobe is also it's easy transition to winter. It pairs easily with a tall boot in a few months. 

For now, use it to dress up your casual look. Suede is down-to-earth, but enticing. Whether it's a skirt, shirt or jacket, it will give you the allure that comes with effortless style.

Take Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring with These Six Looks

I've learned to always carry a purse big enough to fit a sweater, because every afternoon, that's exactly where my sweater ends up. Austin's weather is unpredictable, to say the least, and the past two weeks have been the worst of it. I'm really never sure what I'm going to get when I step out of my apartment. Even if the day starts out at 40 degrees, you could be sweating by the end of it. 

So! Because Austin likes to keep us guessing, I've put together looks to incorporate both winter and spring pieces for a chic style statement for whatever weather comes our way.

5 Essential Pieces for Your Winter Vacation

I have to admit, it has taken me a long time to figure out exactly how to pack the perfect suitcase. Everything I could need ends up in my luggage, but somehow I don't manage to wear everything that snuck in there. 

That's because on vacation, when everything is supposed to be easy, I so often wear the same outfit twice. I know, it seems like I should be ashamed. When I'm packing, I have the best of intentions. I imagine myself sipping cocktails on a beach in a full length dress and heels...though in actuality, I am still sipping cocktails, but it's in the most comfortable dress I own. You know what? That's OK. Vacation is about kicking back, relaxing. In reality, style should reflect your state of mind. When I remember that, I realize it's OK to (in this instance) wear the same thing twice.

Of course, that doesn't mean you can't still look good while you relax. Being comfortable and looking good while you do it will make you more excited about your vacation. Whether you are at the beach or on the ski slopes, here are five versatile pieces with looks built around them that I would recommend bringing. 

Heading to the Slopes?          Heading to the Sand?

Family, Feasting, and Fit: Picking the Perfect Pant for Thanksgiving

I consider myself one of the lucky ones. My mother is a chef and both of my grandmothers are exceptionally talented in the kitchen, so my Thanksgiving is predictably delicious. I, however, am not quite as talented in the kitchen. I've got the staples down for weeknights in my house (tacos, pasta, chicken...), but my contribution to Thanksgiving usually involves the pies (picking them up, not baking them). 

Whether you're the culinary genius in your house or the couch potato this Thanksgiving, it's important to be comfortable. The Thanksgiving outfit plan is surprisingly important because cooking, couching, and eating all require a bit of stretch to your outfit. Also, you may find yourself in some family photos that are sure to stick around for a long time (either on Instagram or in your grandma's house). 

So, I'm dedicating this week to making you look and feel fabulous for your big feast, and there's one element that's a must: LEGGINGS.

Picking the right pair of leggings, and the appropriate outfit to wear with them, depends on everything from your body type to your color palette. It's not always easy. I've laid out a few looks for a broad range of body types. But to find out how to create the best look for you, schedule an image assessment with me.   

Now, I would love to hear from you! Leave a comment below to tell me how you managed to find the perfect Thanksgiving pant!
