Kitten Heels // Round Minaudière 

With the change of the seasons a quick way to update your wardrobe is with a few new statement pieces – a pair of shiny new kicks, a chic structured bag, or a new set of shades.  (Or in my case, all the above!) 


The Shoe

Little white ankle boots have been on my “list.” When I stumbled across these faux patent ankles boots at Zara, (and for a good price) I knew they were going to be my favorite newbies for fall. Bight white pops against the moody autumn skies and looks so cool with everything - dresses, jeans, and skirts. Be warned - they run a little small. I wish I would have sized up, but after breaking them in they have little give and are easy to walk in, with the low kitten heel.


The Bag

I shamelessly stalk Zara for outfit inspiration and fell in love with this minaudière - a small, decorative handbag often without handles or a strap.

This one features a handle, and an adjustable removable shoulder strap. It’s simple gold metal hardware is so 60s-mod. It reminds me of a bag one of my Barbie dolls had growing up! Maybe it was the nostalgia but I am so in love with this little purse. I know it will be the perfect companion for date nights and events around town. Just the right size for a phone, lipstick and card/money holder.


As for the rest of my outfit, the distinct golden/mustard yellow color dress is an oldie from Anthropologie that also has that retro drop-waist silhouette I love, and would be super-cute with  over-the-knee boots!

The denim jacket with distressed design, "J'adore Rock N' Roll" graphic on the back, was a sale item I happened upon for $10 folks! Playful and in that classic shade of blue, it will be a great laying item come cooler days.

You guys know black and white dominate my wardrobe, and these white boots and black bag will be sure to mix and match with ease, while elevating an everyday look!

When searching for new statement pieces for fall, make sure they are things that will easily transition into your own wardrobe. Stick to a color pallet, think about what makes sense for the season (boots, coats, hats, scarves) and avoid anything too “trendy” that you might only wear once or twice. These should be things that you know will get lots use.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and make sure to share your new fall finds in the comments below! I love hearing/seeing what everyone is wearing as the temps start to cool!

Cheers babes!

All Occasion Dress

Anthropologie: Madera Maxi Dress by Bhanuni

Every wardrobe should have one go-to lush, detail-rich dress. Think of it as a secret weapon for those spontaneous special events.

It’s great when you have the time to search out that perfect party outfit, but sometimes you only have a few hours notice. The solution is having an all-occasion dress on hand, one that works in any season and can be worn to multiple events.

When searching for a swoon-worthy gown, look for thoughtful touches that make the dress unique. Maybe it’s elaborate in structure or decoration. Perhaps it’s made of an unusual fabric, color or print. 

The obstacle when shopping for an elegant dress is being able to weigh price verse wear-ability. 

So, while there is no way that magnificent dress is going to get the same airtime as your favorite pair of jeans - hear me out- jeans on the rare, are truly magnifiqué! A gorgeous frock is probably going to take a dip into your clothes budget, so make it worth the investment. When you find something that meets your criteria, and makes you feel like a million, splurge. That's what makes it "special." Choose a dress you would wear traveling Europe, attending a up-scale cocktail event, or even to mark an unremarkable day! There's always a reason to celebrate, so find "the one you can't live without" and wear it every chance you get.

I have a few scrumptious dresses (mostly from weddings) that I wish I could wear all the time but they are just too romantic for a typical night out. I love this particular Anthropologie dress for it's fancy-boho style. This is an all-occasion dress that can be just as gorgeous dressed up with heels and accessories (wedding) or dressed down with a casual denim jacket and ankle boots (date night.)

It’s memorable in its vibrant colors and lovely print, but not so much that it couldn’t be worn to multiple affairs. This dress is even more exquisite in person. The upper bodice is adorned with detailed sequins, delicate beading, and dainty rosettes. The empire waist and tiered full skirt are perfect for formal events in early fall, spring and summer. It’s really a light soft fabric and the dark turquoise against the pale blues and oxblood reds give it garden party appeal.

In this particular stage in life, weddings are what come to mind when I think of occasion dressing. As a guest as you want to spiff it up, but you don’t want to out-shine the bride (or wedding party.) Wearing white is out of the question and black can be a snooze-fest. So just how fancy should one go?

Coming from a girl who likes to go glam, when in doubt, opt for elegance. Being well dressed is a beautiful form of politeness.
