in the trenches

It’s been a mild fall so I’m here to help you make the transition from fall to winter. The easiest approach is by adding a layers for those cooler nights. My personal favorite is the trench coat. They add a polished touch to any outfit when layered over a sweater, turtle neck or collared shirt.

If you’ve been reading this site closely, you’ll notice that I’m big on versatility in my wardrobe. The best thing about a trench coat is being able to dress it up with a shoe, dress it down with a sneaker or utilize it in the rainy weather!

get the boot

With the autumn season approaching, it’s time to start searching for that perfect pair of boots. My favorite silhouette this season is the western inspired boot. These boots are the perfect alternative to a stiletto heel because they sit on a block heel allowing for comfort and versatility.

bang bang.

At least once a year I get the urge to cut bangs and I usually go through with it at one point or another. I think I am starting to get the bang bug now that it is winter but this year I think I want to change it up.  Big hair and volume is my thing, I think flat hair is very sleek, but it gets boring. Lately, I’ve been super obsessed with vintage Brigitte Bardot hair, a long waved bang swooped off to the side toward spiraled tendrils at the ear. It’s a great alternative to traditional bangs and less of a commitment. The hair isn’t as short and defined  as a fringe but instead is curled and swiped off to the side allowing the hair to grow back a lot faster.

Check out some looks below:

If even long bangs are too much of a commitment for you, check out this tutorial on faux bangs below:

power to the reds.



I don’t know about you but every season I get caught up in a color that I love and I’ll buy everything in that color. I’ve recently been obsessed with olives and  oranges but this fall the color obsession turns to red hues. From power reds to oxblood and everything in between. We saw fall runway looks with red hues head to toe and some with just a pop of color. Check out some of my favorite red pieces for the fall after the break:

styling: dresses over pants


From structured oxford button ups to concert tees (thank you Rihanna), it wasn’t long before the oversized shirt trend evolved for the colder weather. We’ve jumped from shirts as dresses to actual dresses as shirts…crazy, right?! It’s the perfect way to stretch the life of not only your summer wardrobe but your formal wardrobe as well. While it seems daring, the look is almost effortless to pull off.
