Hi loves! I gradually started shopping for a few Fall outfits and fell in love with this combination dress and cardigan. I think it is the perfect dress this Thanksgiving or for the office, and for any occasion. This dress gives me all the warm and vibrant feelings! It reminds me of golden caramel, pumpkins, and yes, Fall!!! I guess I am gravitating towards the warmer earth tones this season. The look can be dressed up or down, and you can always add a light jacket or cardigan if it is a little chilly, or even pair the dress with heels or boots! I kept jewelry to a minimum because sometimes a dress says it all. Who else is having a vintage moment? xoxo Louise
This skirt! I’m obsessed!!! There is something about tulle that’s so fun and playful…oh yes, and feminine too! I have had this skirt on repeat and I love how I can pair it with just about anything! If you have a tulle skirt, here are a few tips for styling:
- Wear them with heels or even boots for a Fall look
- Lacy tops and layers can bring in some pattern and add variation. I have worn them with a black lace top and also with a jacket for office look
- Don’t be afraid to accessorize. I chose minimal pieces to not take away from the look. A few key pieces can make a difference.
- Finally, make every look your own. There are no rules to fashion. It is all about how you wear each piece and confidence.
BLACK AND LACE
Lacy tops, jackets, and the color black can all be edgy, stylish, and transforming. Lacy tops can go with about anything but I especially love it with this tulle skirt.
For a more serious look, you can add a tweed jacket and still look classy. I have been really drawn to all things black lately whether it is wearing it as a solid color or mixing it with other colors. I find that black is such an effortless color so instead of wearing a neutral lighter color, I chose to wear this skirt with something black and the contrast is beautiful.
Just add a faux fur clutch purse to keep things light and playful. If you are looking for a simple holiday look or everyday wear, this is an easy and effortless one.
You can quickly transform this look from office wear with the jacket to a night out without the jacket. If a look is versatile in my book, then it is definitely a winner. I have linked a few pieces below.
Do you own a tulle skirt or dress? How do you wear it? Would love to hear!
There’s usually a little bit of a frenzy when approaching a change in season. It could be due to the current fashion trends or realizing the clothes you’ve kept in your wardrobe from last Fall is not too wearable any longer. Either way, there’s always this trend every season to do a little shopping and mix/match with your current clothes in your wardrobe. Today, I am sharing a few finds that are reasonably priced from a store I have never shopped at before; still in love with the top! Call it an accidental find, thanks to my little girl who actually pulled me into this store on one of our trips to get her fluffy scented unicorn squizamals at Claire’s. Please don’t even get me started on the squizamals and squishy trend toys among little girls! I will have to save that for another post.
Anyway, about this outfit which she picked for me and henceforth (don’t I sound so proper?), I have decided to take her along on all my shopping sprees!!!
Outfits Under $50
This outfit is such a great transitional wear into Fall! It is not too heavy and not too light either. This top and scarf are both under $10 from Forever21 and H&M, respectfully. My pants come in three colors and on sale at Free People. I just love the beautiful contrast of colors. Maybe it’s something about color harmony between primary and secondary colors that make this look fun and yet “Fall-ish”.
My lettuce edge mock neck top isn’t really a turtleneck so is not too heavy and can be worn in temperatures in the 60s degree Fahrenheit (F) or higher…just not in 80F degree weather! Now that will be a bit too hot. I love the scallops on the edges since it adds a feminine touch to the look. The belted wide-leg pants are super comfortable. I can’t gush enough how surprised I was when I put them on! I also really like the belted option because you can adjust how tight or loose you want the belt around your waist, giving you control. You can find these pants at any of these stores; FreePeople, Nordstrom Rack or Macys. I have also included in the “Shop My Favorites” link below, a less expensive option from Forever21 which is very similar to these pants and under $30! For the scarf, I opted for a light choice but I have a feeling this may change into more heavier layers later in the month once we start experiencing much cooler temperatures. I paired this look with one of my favorite Sam Edelman shoes from Nordstrom and Michael Kors cross body bag in nude.
Now isn’t this just the cutest outfit (minus my slightly out of control crazy hair)? I think I may have found a personal fashion stylist in my daughter. Have you guys shopped at Forever21? What do you guys think? Let me know in comments below.
Taking a break from all my neutral looks…KIDDING! I love color in every season because it simply can add aesthetic pleasure to a look! When I saw this green skirt from the Eva Mendes collection at New York & Company, it was a no-brainer purchase. In fact, my younger sister liked it so much I had to go back to the store and purchase one for her. It happened to also be the last one in the store in our size! I paid full price but it is currently on sale, even better right? Some may not like the color but I find it beautiful.
I also like neutrals so when I came across this fun t-shirt, I thought what a great way to pair with jeans or …yes, this skirt! The t-shirt about sums up how moms tend to be elevated in the eyes of our kids. To our kids, we are everything. It can even be worn in the Fall with a light jacket.
For this look, I paired the skirt and t-shirt with a Kate Spade purse and then added another pop of color with these bright orange shoes :). Now isn’t this simply rainbow bright in contrast to the background?
