I have always been a fan of Banana Republic style. I find their clothes to be chic and affordable. I love the inclusivity of height and extended sizing. This summer I found some new favorite pieces from Banana Republic Factory which I have been rotating in my daily looks.
It is the time of year I trade my heavier leather bags for more playful colors and earthy fabrics. Having a woven bag is the perfect summer accessory that can be worn day and night.
I am officially obsessed with athletic dresses. I typically try not to fall into trends as I, like most push those trendy pieces to the back of the closet after the season ends. However, I made an exception as this look is one that will remain timeless as a casual look.
It is finally that time of year when the weather is warming, the flowers are blooming and I am starting to feel more alive. With that comes a change in wardrobe! I am looking forward to bringing out my dresses, tanks, and wide-leg pants. I am sharing three outfit looks that can help generate some ideas as we begin to transition into this new season.
Years ago I fell in love with the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots.
Last year I hopped on the shirt jacket trend! For fall it has quickly become one of my go-to pieces for layering as the weather is transitioning. They can be styled from casual to something a bit more dressy.
I think it is safe to say that we know the skit with SNL comedians Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler where they are talking to each other about it being “sweater weatha” (If you are unfamiliar then see it here). Here in CT it feels as though it went straight from summer temperatures to fall temperatures overnight. I am slowly bringing out more and more sweaters to wear as it is freezing in the morning, warm during the day, and back to freezing at night.
It’s the first day of fall! It’s my favorite season for a few reasons. I love the crisp air, the beautiful New England foliage, wearing my cozy robe around the house, and as the weather changes bringing out my boots. In this post, I am sharing some great additions to your closet. The western-style boot is fun and can be flirty when paired with a cute dress or skirt. They have a distinct look but can still be rocked by many. They come back year after year, so I consider them a closet staple for a fun boot.
For many, wide-leg denim or pants are not the first choice when building outfits. They can be considered too baggy and not flattering for different body types, or if you’re petite, they are often too long and not altered in a tailored way. I used to think they would look ridiculous on me. I did not want to trade skinny jeans for a wide-leg look. Once I could find pieces that were flattering for me, it was a complete game changer. I am sharing some wide-leg styles, how you can wear them, and what to look for in a pair that will work for you.
I have always loved slip dresses for summer. They are wearable to many functions, simple yet elegant when dressed up, and subtly sexy.
