There is definitely something to be said about having a few key pieces in your wardrobe that you will keep forever.  This suede skirt is one of them for me.  I bought it a few months ago on Etsy from a little vintage shop and I am so in love.  I first saw the look on Emma Watson and I thought it was so pretty and different.  I went crazy looking all over the internet for the perfect one, which is why I’ve rounded up tons of options for you guys.  It looks really cute in the fall and works as a winter transition piece too since it’s so long and can be worn with booties.  Using a turtleneck top and blanket scarf I piled on the layers to keep this look cold weather friendly.

Love,

When you’re in that awkward transitioning period between winter and spring it can really hard to come up with outfits to accommodate the weather.  Particularly in March and April I find that it’s common (in NJ) to have one day that’s really cold and the next day it can be 70 degrees or more.  We have been experiencing a lot of that in the past week.  It snowed on Monday and by Wednesday it was 78 degrees outside!

I find that it’s really easy to fall into the “what do I wear?” trap during these months because the temperature is just so inconsistent.  One of my go-to transitioning looks is to wear a sweater and jeans of the same color hue paired with bright spring-like accessories.  I love the way the pink bag and green necklace pop against the gray!  What’s your go-to spring transition outfit?

In the winter, it’s tempting to throw on a pair of sweatpants and order takeout, but sometimes a night out is exactly what you really need.  Make your favorite dress cold-weather ready with a pair of tights and a wool coat.  You can also take any coat from blah to fashion forward by draping it over your shoulders instead of wearing it the traditional way.

When the bandana neck tie trend emerged last fall I was immediately in love.  It’s so perfect the way it draws in all of your attention with the bright pop of color against a neutral outfit.  Not only so, but it also might be world’s most inexpensive accessory.  I purchased this one on Amazon for $2.00, but you can find bandanas at Walmart in every color for just $1.00.

Quick tying tutorial…

The simplest way to tie this is to fold the square in half into a triangle.  Tightly roll it so one end reaches the other.  Then, wrap it around your neck and make a knot in the front.

Thanks for reading!

Okay, so I spoke waaaay too soon with the whole “it’s been a mild winter thing.”  Last weekend we were hit with the Jonas blizzard and as you can see by the huge piles of snow it was pretty intense!  I was basically trapped inside all last weekend, but it was so incredibly relaxing doing nothing for three days straight. Although it’s super cold, I’m obsessed with the way that the camel and brown in my outfit pop against the white snow and my white pants.  There’s something really striking about neutral colors against a blank canvas.  I hope you guys have a happy Friday and a great weekend!

Love,
