Wardrobe

Dressed in Love

Is love really overrated? Either way, one’s wardrobe should certainly reap the benefits of St. Valentine’s holiday. After all, it’s a great excuse to go shopping ;).

The first look is the one that I would wear for the festivities. Adding some subtle lace underneath a well-fitting suit is an easy way to vamp up a classic. As for the sneakers, my mind was filled with street style inspiration and how the athletic shoe has transcended work out attire. It’s a great way to combine style and practicality.

If you prefer something more on the colorful side, you can’t go wrong with an LRD (little red dress). The quirky Kate Spade clutch was the main influence for the second look. Keeping the rest of the pieces light makes for a quick way to be ready for a night on the town.

AllSaints Makes My Heart Skip a Beat

November has been a month of discoveries for me, and one of those discoveries was a brand called AllSaints. I first heard of it when I saw Lucy Liu wearing a variety of its garments on Elementary. AllSaints is a British retailer with a cool and edgy style. One of the things I really love is the versatility of the pieces. When purchasing new additions to my wardrobe, I’m the type of person who expects them to last for years to come. I like being able to integrate them into countless different looks and AllSaints feels as if they design with that in mind.

My top AllSaints picks:

Window Top, $75.00

Zaphir Dress, $360.00

Kayla Shirt, $140.00

Most of the designs are based on structural elements. They are generally sold in muted colors, but their shapes and textures make them immensely far from boring. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to splurge on an AllSaints garment or two someday. Have any of my top picks caught your eye? They certainly have mine.

I’m a Hat Person Now

The possibilities are endless when it comes to accessorizing with outerwear. I recently obtained a black wide brim hat that has quickly become a new wardrobe staple for me. Not only is it highly versatile, but it can be worn during any season; whether it be with a light dress in Summer or with layers in Winter. With warmer days now behind us here in Pennsylvania, I opted to wear the hat with layers. A pair of jeans and a black long sleeve shirt provided a canvas to compliment the moto jacket. My mystic hamsa print scarf is a statement piece in itself that blended well with the color palette. Black flats and a gemstone ring were small additions that made the look complete.

Falling for Autumn

Autumn is truly my favorite season. The leaves changing into a mob of warm colors, scents of pumpkin and cinnamon filling homes, and Halloween creeping around the corner are a few of the many things about Fall that steal my heart. Yet above all of that, the thing that I will always love most about the season is reintroducing cold weather appropriate pieces into my wardrobe. For my first outfit of the new season I wore a cobalt blue sweater with leather and zipper detailing from EXPRESS. A black skinny jean was the transition piece to the floral print Doc Marten boots. The only jewelry needed to polish it off were gold hoop earrings and one statement ring. In the beauty department, I opted for a simple ponytail and winged eyeliner as one of my makeup choices.
