It’s no secret that brown has claimed it’s title as “color of the season!” Whether you’re wearing it head to toe, or just accessorizing with a few pieces, it’s definitely a shade that is here to stay! Below I’ve rounded up a few garments that would be lovely wardrobe additions to stay on trend and Fall-ready! Don’t forget to click the images to shop my picks and until next time!

With the change in seasons also comes the change in nature’s colors, and being a Fall baby, I absolutely love the beauty and richness that appears during this time of year. It seems like as soon as the temperatures begin to drop and “sweater weather” is in full effect, there is a coziness that fills the air that I personally cannot resist. This longing for comfort and warmth presents itself through garments, signature beverages, and of course the ever-changing leaves. To be honest, I have never been a fan of brown clothing or sweatsuits for that matter. However, when I saw this co-ord online there was something about it that really drew me in and instantly, I knew I had to have it! As we should all know by now, contrast is my thing; so upon receiving these pieces, I knew this was an outfit that I would pair with heels. After trying a few different color combinations, I finally decided to stick with the neutral color palette and opted for my favorite tan mules. To compliment this further, I also incorporated my structured box bag featuring tortoise shell detailing. I absolutely loved how each item made its own statement and how the boldness of the ensemble really embodied what I think of when it comes to Autumnal dressing. To complete this fairly monochrome look, I figured gold jewelry would be the best fit as well as a pair of matching sunnies that truly tied everything together seamlessly. Whether with or without a jacket, this is definitely the type of look that will have me ready to take on the whatever the next few months have in store!

Every now and then I stumble across a garment that is so obvious yet innovative at the same time, it completely baffles me! During my weekly web searches, never did I imagine that I would be so intrigued by a fraction of a sweater, I never knew I needed. Truthfully, the only initial thought that came to mind was, “GENIUS!” As influencers and style enthusiasts, we are constantly recommending trends, fashion hacks, and ways to get the most out of the items in our closets. That said, with a new transitional season right around the corner, pieces like this are the perfect way to bridge the gap between Summer and Fall staples. I chose to pair this knit with a ribbed crop top as we are still experiencing fairly warm temperatures, however this piece could also compliment a variety of sleeveless items such as dresses, jumpsuits, or even t-shirts. Since I was working with such a stark contrast, I chose to keep the bottom half of my look pretty simple with a pair of mid-washed denim bermuda shorts. For some this style may not appear to be the most flattering, and though I haven’t owned any in years, I was quite pleased with how chic they looked when styled with a stappy heeled sandal. Since each piece brought so much character to the overall ensemble, I didn’t even bother carrying a bag but instead opted for cat-eye sunnies featuring a light tortoise print and gold jewelry. It may be too early to say, but I do believe that this look could be in the running for my favorite of 2020! The juxtaposition of edgy and feminine, combined with the comfort of the garments, and coolness of the accessories checked all of the boxes that ultimately embody my personal style as a whole. Comment below your favorite part of this outfit and until next time!

Every now and then I get intrigued by just how versatile my style can be. I truly don’t consider myself as being particularly “girly,” but occasionally I find myself drawn to pieces that are more on the feminine side and I can’t help but filter them into my wardrobe. For instance this dress; it’s simply GORGEOUS! I had honestly never seen such a stunning shade of lavender and though this piece did come off a bit “night-gownish,” I threw caution to the wind and decided to give it a try! I actually purchased this garment during the early Spring season and realized it was either now or next year when I would have the opportunity to wear it again. I feel like I’ve been describing a lot of my looks as “effortless” lately, but with quarantine being our new reality, even the idea of getting dressed has become a process I haven’t felt like putting a lot of thought and time into. For this particular outfit, I figured color-blocking would be an interesting approach to styling such a vibrant frock. I added a pair of pale yellow asymmetric mules and layered with a thin white shirt which provided even more movement and texture on this warm, breezy day. I completed the ensemble with a few silver pieces of jewelry and used a bouquet of flowers that my photographer so unexpectedly brought me as an impromptu accessory, which just so happened to match perfectly! This is definitely a look that can take you from day to night, to the boardwalk and back to the city. Comment below your thoughts on these pieces and if you would consider styling any of them as we head into the next season. Until next time!

As we make our way through the final Summer months, the excitement of new trends begin to fill my mind and my style becomes more minimal as I prepare for my favorite layering season. I personally love this look because it is absolutely effortless yet still weather appropriate and chic! Biker shorts are still proving to be a closet essential and though I don’t own many pairs, they definitely come in handy on those super casual days. I chose to balance the spandex with an over-sized striped poplin shirt which really ensured my comfort level was on 1000! While I could have maintained the overall simplicity with a sneaker or flat shoe, this seemed like the perfect opportunity for a statement heel; and lucky for me, I had just bought some. These strappy nude sandals featuring a bright blue bubble heel, instantly elevated this outfit and truly made me feel like I was walking on a piece of art. For those who know me, outerwear, shoes, and accessories (specifically sunglasses and handbags) are typically where I implement the “wow factor” in most of my looks and this one was no exception! To finish off the ensemble I grabbed an old ring handle bag and a few gold pieces of jewelry to coordinate with its hardware. For one last subtle yet unexpected twist, I threw on a pair of tortoise cat-eye sunglasses instead of a black style, as I felt that they highlighted the warmth in the outfit, despite my cool-toned top being a focal piece. Needless to say, I’m ready to give my Autumnal wardrobe a bit of a refresh and break out those knits and blazers that have been hiding in the back of my closet. Can you believe we’re more than half way through 2020?!?!! Comment below what you’re looking forward to most during the upcoming season, and until next time!

Why wear a top when you can wear a bodysuit??? In all seriousness, whoever came up with this garment truly deserves an award. I mean, it completely takes the hassle out of bulky styling and guarantees a seamless look every time! So what’s not to love??! From the moment I saw this piece online, I was instantly obsessed and knew I had to have it. From the cut out detail and one-shoulder design, this bodysuit is a complete showstopper to say the least! And how could I forget, it’s NEON! Now if I’m being completely honest, I don’t have or even want a large amount of fluorescent items in my wardrobe. That being said, I do believe there is a time, place, and way to style them that can still contribute to a chic ensemble. Because my top was so bright and a bit revealing, I chose to balance out the look with a looser fitting pair of trousers in a neutral beige color. These tailored pants are so comfortable and provided the sophisticated element I needed to complete my outfit. I wanted my accessories to pop without being distracting so I figured the contrast of black against the lighter colors would do the trick. Lastly, I also decided to play with tonal accents and grabbed a bag in a much darker green shade to add some dimension and variety within the range of the color palette. This look definitely screams “Summer brunch vibes” and it still saddens me that life as we once knew it pre-quarantine may never be the same. On a lighter note, comment your favorite item that was featured and where you would wear it now that our day to day has become much more restricted. Until next time!

While staying fit and working out has always been a consistent part of my lifestyle, I’d be lying if I said the current circumstances occurring in our world haven’t amplified it. Being confined to my home more than ever before has really allowed me to lean on working out as a source of both physical and mental stress relief. Because of this, I was absolutely thrilled when I was contacted by one of the most influential athletic brands, Adidas, to collaborate and showcase products from their latest line entitled “Pink Unity.” I was instantly drawn to the name of this collection because “unity” is the very thing we need most in our country at this time. From a fashion perspective, I also loved the vibrant color palette that made each piece a definite showstopper whether walking into the gym for the first time or heading to the park to train. Though there are a variety of styles within this particular range, I really wanted to step outside of my comfort zone of black, white, and grey garments, and select the boldest items that most appealed to me. The first piece that caught my attention were the graphic leggings. Aside from being extremely eye-catching, they are the perfect amount of spandex and softness to keep you feeling supported yet comfortable throughout any exercise you desire. At this point, I was tempted to pair them with one of the darker jackets or sneakers but instead I decided to continue matching that striking “signal pink” shade. The wind-breaker was such a great layering piece and perfectly highlighted the accent stripes on my footwear choice. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a workout shoe that is so light, yet resistant enough to handle all of the high impact movements I do regularly with my HIIT cardio and circuit training sessions. This collection has made me feel empowered, strong, and motivated me to continue working on my fitness goals throughout this global pandemic. Additionally, now that the rules are a bit more relaxed for social distancing outside, this is the perfect time to get some new gear and take advantage of what’s left of Summer while staying active!
