Happy Monday!  Things are finally starting to warm up around here which means that it’s time to break out the trench coat!  I got this one from Zara during one of their big sales and I love the way it curves to your figure rather than being boxy like some others that I’ve tried.

Tip: A quick fix for a trench coat with a long belt is to tuck it under itself.  it’s both functional and looks fashion forward!  Have a great week everyone!

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!

A midi skirt is such a great staple to have in your wardrobe!  Not only can you wear this piece throughout every season, but it’s also a great item to have for both formal and casual wear.  I know that this one in partciular will be on major repeat this winter during holiday parties and events!

Hi friends!  Who’s ready for pumpkin spice lattes and apple picking??  I’m trying not to rush it, but I can’t help but feel so excited for everything fall!  When I’m trying to transition my wardrobe I like to take summer tops and pair them with big midi skirts for the perfect almost-fall-weather combo.  You can also add a jacket if it starts to get chilly early in the season.

Love,
