The reality is I purchased this sweater because I needed to meet the minimum requirement for shipping and threw in something from my favorites with the notion that I’d return said item. That never happened. The second I put this sweater on by A New Day I didn’t want to take it off, and was pleasantly surprised by the fit.
One can never go wrong with a trench coat – especially when it’s from Target. I picked this coat up last year for my trip to Canada and it was my go-to outerwear for the entire trip. Since then I have continued to wear it for the fall and into the early winter (before it gets too cold).
If there is any styling lesson that I have learned in the past few years, it is simply to style a look with what you already have in your closet. And the amount of times I have surprised myself with an entirely new look with items I already have is… usually every photo session.
Plaid pants for Fall? Groundbreaking. Zara had these stretchy plaid pants out last year and I picked up 2 pairs – a red pair and this pair. They fit perfectly and I can even dress these pants up for an office look too. I love a good item that can be worn in a multitude of ways – it makes it worth the cost!
I love flared pants – sue me! Express dress pants have always fit me so well and I love that this style accentuates my shape. I styled it to be more casual and edgy since that is my typical go-to look. It is also something that I’d absolutely wear out with friends this fall since outdoor dining is year-round now in NYC.
The fall weather calls for some fall colors, and the best I got here is green. I wanted to style an edgy look for fall that was from items I already had in my closet, and this jacket being one of those items. I picked this green waterfall jacket with leather sleeves from Dynamite about five years ago and it has been a go-to item for me at the beginning of fall. This time around instead of wearing it with jeans I went with my Amazon mini faux leather skirt.
Taking it back to my high school “rocker” days with these pants. Reminiscing of how I HATE labels and a short rant about it.
My most favorite time of year has arrived: fall. Mostly because by this time I am very much over the hot, humid, sticky weather in New York. Once the cool air finally decides to stay we can all get excited to wear all of these new fall trends. Could I decide on which ones I loved the most? HA! You should know me better by now that I’ve chosen a handful of trends that I am in love with and those that I believe are worth investing in.
So while I try to figure out which trend I am going to wear first, let’s jump into what the trends are…
I absolutely live for the month of October, Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays. These pop-up museums and events have been happening for some time now in New York City, have I gone to any one of them? No. Why? Because I get “Yeah we should go!” and then it never happens. Finally, I was able to convince some amazing people that it was a great idea to go to the Nightmare Machine in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. And let me tell you this, IT DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT! And of course, I dressed up for the occasion…
