Fall Fashion: Transitioning with Leather.

This look is one of my favorites so far for fall! 
I love it when you can find a way to style trendy looks in a classic way that won't look ridiculous in five years. This look is a great example of that.  The trends here include but are not limited to: tortoise jewelry, peter pan collars, leather skirts, cheetah print, jewel tones and gray. I love how the peter pan collar and mary janes give the leather skirt a more classic look, while the leather also keeps the mary janes and peter pan collar from getting too sweet. The perfect balance of edgy, trendy, and classic. What are some of your favorite trends for fall?

Fall Fashion: Transitioning with Intarsia Florals.

Intarsia sweaters have been a big trend since last fall, and they are a great way to make the classic sweater a little more whimsical and not so serious. But I have to admit, I haven't bought one yet. Every time I almost do I find myself playing the what if game-what if this isn't really work appropriate, what if this isn't really my style and I won't wear it? Don't get me wrong, I keep finding all kinds of intarsia sweaters that I really love (and in a wide variety of price ranges) but I haven't been able to commit to one yet. But this sweater, this lovely floral intarsia sweater, I think  I could commit to. It's the perfect amount of slouchy and the floral print is totally ladylike and whimsical without being too unprofessional.  Check out how I styled this floral beauty for a more put together casual look by pairing it up with fall's favorite jewel tones and booties.

Tumblr Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
Here are my favorite must haves and inspirations from the Tumblr world lately. 
Check out my Tumblr blog for more inspiration on the daily. 

I think that I am literally craving a leopard print bag in a classic shape like this.
I shall not rest until I find one. 

What else am I craving? Macaroons. ALL THE TIME.
I didn't understand what all the hype was about. Then I ate one.
Now I can't stop. 

PUPPY! I love my puppy.

Music Monday: The Weatherman

I love mellow music. Music that you can read to or write to, work along with .Music that has blatant emotion and tells stories. It's these kinds of attributes that draw me to folk music. And it's all these things that drew me to Gregory Alan Isakov's music a few years ago. His new album, The Weatherman that came out in July is perfection. I can't just pick a few songs to love. I love all of them! Which I believe is a sign of a really fantastic album. 
So sit back, grab a good book and listen.
