I WANT KNIT ALL

I WANT KNIT ALL

4 new staples that will take your knits from head to toe.We all love a cozy knit fabric, whether that be an easy eyelash pullover, distressed cardigan, or a chunky beanie. Fall’s here and winter’s coming, so it’s time to bundle up and read about this seasons trendiest knits!

If I could turn our heather cable knit sweater into a blanket, you know I would –  soft and cozy doesn’t even begin to describe this yarn! It is a textured knit that will keep you toasty even on those chilly fall mornings. This sweater is also the perfect length to pair with those crisp dark wash jeans you have been itching to wear, along with some fuzzy mittens and a blanket scarf. What is unique about this sweater is the faux suede brown lacing up and down the sleeves along with the mock neck, giving it an everyday effortless feeling and I adore it! (Shown with Articles of Society Heather High Rise Jean, Kelani Docle Vita Boot, and Urbanista Fur Pom Pom Hat)IMG_5608

Pom-poms is this season’s trending accessory, seen on bags to beanies, and this fashion trend is here to stay (and I’m not mad about it). Our grey pom-pom sleeve cardigan is a staple color in anyone’s closet and the pom-poms adds a pop of fun! It is a thick cable knit cardigan that is easy to throw on with a basic short sleeved tee or with one of our waffle knit thermal henley’s. Add some height with a pair of cute booties or wedge sneakers! Our next fun pick is our ivory and burnt brown pom-pom heart cardigan! This sweater nails it with the details, with the hearts being placed all over the sweater, being adorable from every angle. Again, this sweater is a thick cable knit, keeping you warm during the coldest days. (Gray Pom Pom Sweater Shown with Blank NYC Reade Cropped Jean, But First Coffee Travel Mug, and Tate Dolce Vita Sneaker Booties)

 

Who doesn’t love a good cable knit beanie? Going food shopping, throw on a beanie. Bad hair day, beanie. Girlfriends lunch in Boston, beanie. These hats are the easiest way to amp up your accessory closet this fall, without breaking the bank. Beanies are perfect to give your outfit the pop of color it needs or can also help compliment and neutralize. You can pair a beanie with almost everything from sweatpants to sweater dresses, which is why we want knit all!IMG_5609

Sweater dresses are in right now and I totally understand why. Not only are they warm and soft, but can change dramatically from day to night with how you pair it! Our light and dark grey ribbed knit dress can be worn to work with a pair of leggings and sneakers or can be worn to dinner with a pair of tights and high-heeled booties. The asymmetrical zipper adds an unexpected pop and the long-sleeves keep you warm on those cold date nights.IMG_5614

The 5 Fall Essentials You Need

The 5 Fall Essentials You Need

 

Sweater Weather. The two words everyone loves to hear after a sweltering summer and floral print-saturated fabrics. So, that means it’s OFFICIALLY time to pull out those blanket scarf’s, hot apple cider, and what we have all been waiting for…a new wardrobe. With fall comes the opportunity to bring out those leather pants, to die for booties, and printed jackets that the summer heat wouldn’t allow for.

Keep reading for 5 Fall Picks that are not only affordable but help you seamlessly transition from summer-to-fall fashion (so you can spend more on pumpkin spice lattes and less on a wardrobe update)

(click on each pic for a bigger view)

A Leather Moto Jacket

A leather motto jacket is a known staple in anyone’s wardrobe. A turtleneck, black jeans, some booties, and a leather jacket screams put together even though it may have taken less than 5 minuets to get on. We love our grey motto jacket because it is the perfect combination of sleek and cool which is exactly what your fall wardrobe needs.

A Camo Print Piece 

Whether it be jeans, shirts, jackets, bags, or sweaters, the camouflage print is seen in magazines and on celebrities. The army green color is an easy color to pair with, making it one of the trendiest colors of the season. Our two favorite picks are the THEO AND SPENCE waffle knit shirt which is pictured, and LOVE TREE army jacket that can be paired with dark wash jeans making your outfit stand out in the best way.

A Quirky Travel Mug

On cold fall days, it’s an unspoken necessity to have a hot cup of coffee or tea within arms reach. Our fun, printed travel mugs allow you to drink in style wherever you go! We love the bold patterns as well as the cute sayings, which is exactly why we have fallen for them. We not only want you and your wardrobe to stay trendy, but also what you drink out of.

A Super Soft Neutral Sweater or Jacket

Everyone loves the feeling of a soft warm hug in the crisp cool weather, so this is what you have been waiting for. Asking us to decide between sweaters is an impossible task, but we have taken up the challenge and have chosen some brands and styles that are making us fall, this fall. We love our newest cozy sweater collection from styles ranging from cardigan to oversized pullover and colors from a dark navy to a blush pink. Our PAPERCRANE fluffy jackets are to die for becuase not only will they be having you say “It’s so FLUFFY,” but the grey and cream colors are so versatile and can be worn with jeans or sweatpants.  We are also smitten over our Cable Wrap Sweater from R&D Style – it will be your go to piece with jeans, leggings, or even fall dresses.  It has that nautical preppy vibe that is timeless.

A Vest

Nothing says “I’m ready for fall” like a fuzzy or furry vest. Vests are amazing because they keep you warm while allowing you to pair a stylish shirt underneath without it being covered up. We have been loving this year’s vest style of diagonal zippering because of the way it crosses the body and helps to flatter any body shape. Also, our PAPER CRANE knitted vest is an amazing pick because it is not only beats the fall chills, but it drapes in the front, again flattering the body and who doesn’t want that!

HIGH LIGHTS OF WEEK BEGINNING 2/26:

“MARCH MUST-HAVES SOCIAL”

MARCH MUST HAVE ITEM #1 – THE TIE WAIST TEE $26 available in black and heather gray in sizes small-large

 

This season trench coats reign supreme and this uber feminine top channels that vibe in an easy to wear and super cute tee!  Pair with everything from your favorite jeans, to high waisted pants, to pencil skirts.  The fabric is a fabulous weight – not to heavy, but substantial enough to hold it’s shape and to rock to more formal affairs should you choose.

MARCH MUST HAVE ITEM #2 – THE PASTEL RUCHED OFF THE SHOULDER TOP $30 available in blush in sizes small-large              

 

This top is like the spring trend trifecta – pastel (pastels are huge this spring in blush, lavender, and lemon), ruching (thats the shirred puckering on the arms), and its off the shoulder!  I adore this top with this season light wash jeans, white pants, or even more casually with cut-offs.  This top is proudly made in the USA.

MARCH MUST HAVE ITEM #3 – THE ROMANTIC FLORAL WRAP BLOUSE $32 available in ivory in sizes small-large

 

Sure florals are popular every Spring, but this season the garden party reigns supreme.  The bigger and bolder the floral, the better.  I love this bright and punchy print on the neutral background – especially on this feminine wrap silhouette.  This lovely is perfect for dressing up or down as the occasion requires – think wedding showers, cocktail parties, and even a Saturday night out.  This top is proudly made in the USA.

MARCH MUST HAVE ITEM #4 – THE STRIPED TOP WITH A FEMININE KICK $28 available in navy/white stripe in sizes small-large                         

 

Stripes are a rite of passage for Spring and this season they get a feminine make-over.  This one takes it up a notch with with a feminine and flirty open ruffle shoulder.  Toss it on now with your fav jeans and booties and come warmer dress it up your white jeans and gold sandals.  I even love this one with a pencil skirt and heels!  So cute and so different.

MARCH MUST HAVE ITEM #5 – THE TWILL ZIP ANKLE MOTO LEGGING $40 available in navy and olive in sizes small-large

 

 

Looks like a skinny pant, feels like a legging due to their super stretchiness – they are 97% cotton and 3% spandex.  Best of all twill pants (think your old favorite khakis) are the perfect match for all of your Spring must have tops!  *While these are super stretchy they due run a bit short.  Please size up if you are tall or in between sizes.  I have on the small in the second set of pics above.

“HELLO SUNSHINE SOCIAL”

HELLO SUNSHINE – BOHO LACE-UP PONCHO WITH TASSLE DETAIL $38 available in white/navy in sizes small-large

 

This versatile – wear-now/wear-later piece has details galore.  I love the crisp white with the all over navy print and the mixed colored tassels on the lace up neck and the four points of the hem.  The lace-up neck detail is made from a heavy navy blue cording which pops against the white.  Wear it now with a tank and jeans and sandals or booties and over your bathing suit all vacay or summer long – such a great coverup!

HELLO SUNSHINE – PINK PREPPY FLAMINGO A-LINE DRESS  $36 available in baby pink in sizes small-large

 

This sweet and playful print makes getting dressed fun and is easy to dress-up or down as the occasion requires.  Pack it for your tropical get-away or wear it at home this summer to a cocktail party, a baby shower, or even a backyard BBQ.  No matter where you go, you will be sure to get tons of compliments.

HELLO SUNSHINE – PINK SEERSUCKER V-NECK DRESS WITH SIDE TIES $36 available in pink/white seersucker in sizes small-large                                                            

 

 A seersucker dress that is totally bra friendly and super sweet – yes please!  I love how the seersucker lines up in the v-neck to create a chevron look.  And the side ties complete the look!  The quality, fit, and look of this dress are on part with a certain Whale company and just a fraction of the price.

HELLO SUNSHINE – FLORAL MAXI WITH CRISS-CROSS SMOCKED BUST $44 available in white floral in sizes small-large                                                     

 

This is such gorgeous maxi.  The floral print is so right on for this seasons bright and bold prints and I love the criss-cross bust smocking detail.  It is also super versatile – wear off your shoulder or it also works pulled up for a bra friendly look.  Wear with heels for a formal affair or toss on with gold thong sandals for a totally effortless yet sexy look.

HELLO SUNSHINE – STRIPE FAUX WRAP RUFFLE EDGE SKIRT $40  available in white/blue stripe in sizes small-large

 

Last summer I began my love affair with wrap skirts and this blue and white stripe with ruffle edge is one of my favorites so far.  It is just so easy to toss on with your favorite white tank or tee and look great.  Dress up with heels for a night out or a wedding shower or wear with gold or nude flips for errands or going out to lunch.  You could even pull this lovely over your one-piece bathing suit!  LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Let’s Get Graphic!

Let’s Get Graphic!

When most of us think of graphic tees, we think of an old stand by for our blue jeans or a cozy fashion forward addition to our leggings.  While those are great ways to wear your tees, I want you to think beyond jeans.  I want to show you how to flaunt your favorite image or slogan covered tee with fashion and flare.  In fact – my favorite way to wear my graphic tees, is with my skirts and dresses.  Sounds a bit odd, I know.  But once you see how easy it is to create this look with your own personal touch – I think you will be hooked too!

Go Glam or Go Home

Wear your fav tee for a girls night out or cocktails at that posh new wine bar?  YES!  Pair your graphic tee with your flowy and feminine skirts and a clutch or small shoulder bag you are good to go.  The key here is keeping everything a neutral shade with hints of black or tonal in similar shades, to let the graphic tee be the stand out item. Shown above: “Yes Way Vacay” Tee: Old Navy currently $8.40 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsKz shown with LuLaRoe Lola Skirt, Glitter Louboutin Heels and Chanel Bag.  Similar tees that would work for this look: 1. Rebecca Taylor Tee ‘C’est La Vie’ at Nordstrom $125 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsLB  2.  ‘Good Vibes’ Graphic Tee Sub_Urban at Nordstrom $34 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsL2  3. ‘We Are Strong’ Tee at H&M $14.99 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsMg  4. Led Zeppelin Tee at H&M $17.99 http://shopstyle.it/l/dsM0 5. Pour Some Sugar On Me Tee at Lucky Brand http://shopstyle.it/l/dsM0

Casual with a Kick

Love the idea of upping your style level with your graphic tees, but not quite ready to go ‘glam’?  How about a compromise.  Choose a more casual or refined skirt and a pair it with a tee that has a softer toned graphic tee.  This look works especially well with vintage feeling tees.  Add some heels and a fab bag and you have just taken your look up a notch.  Shown here: Madewell Santa Cruz Vintage Tee on sale at Madewell for $19.99 (but only size large is left) –http://shopstyle.it/l/dsR7 or at Nordstrom for $35 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsT2 with with Shein Frayed Hem Denim skirt $46 – http://bit.ly/2eOVsxG, Vintage Fendi Bag, and Vince Camuto Heels. Similar tees that would work for this look: 1. Young American Tee at Nordstrom $68 http://shopstyle.it/l/dsUf  2. Work Hard Be Nice Tee at the Buckle $34  3. Smokey the Bear Football Tee at Lucky Brand $34.50 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsV0  4. Go Your Own Way tee at Old Navy currently $10.40 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsWM  5. Triumph Escape Tee from Lucky Brand $29.50 – http://shopstyle.it/l/ds4q

Prepster Prints Rock Too

Do you row more to the stroke of a sporty canoe?  I love, love, love preppy printed graphic tees with my skirts and dresses.  I especially enjoy mixing textures, prints, and stripes with this category of tee.  Last night I added this anchor tee over a blue striped dress and I personally thought it was super cute!  Also try with a solid eyelet skirt or dress or over a small repeat print.  I say just have fun with it.  Keep your accessories minimal to not make the look too busy and for sure the compliments will come flowing in! Shown here: Old Navy Anchor Tee (sold out, but here is a similar one from Etsy – http://shopstyle.it/l/dtdq) with Shein Striped Criss Cross Back Swing Dress now $21!!!(size up runs a bit small) – http://bit.ly/2u0md3S  Similar tees that would work for this look:  1. Alternative Apparel Star Tee  at Nordstrom $36 –  http://shopstyle.it/l/ds0L  2. Whale Done Tee from Sub_Urban Riot $44 –  http://bit.ly/2v0Q3tu  3. Karaoke Club Tee from Madewell $44 – http://shopstyle.it/l/ds6P 4. Tennis Racquet Tee $10 – http://shopstyle.it/l/ds6Z 

 

It’s a Wrap (or at least it looks like one)!

It’s a Wrap (or at least it looks like one)!

I have always loved skirts in the summer, especially in maxi lengths.  The wrap skirt – this season’s hottest trend in skirts, is making me want to wear one each and every day!  Whether it be mini, midi, or maxi – the ruffle effect and along with the dip of the front hem, makes the wrap skirt decidedly feminine without even trying.  Whether you are wearing it casually with a graphic tee or with a tank of off the shoulder top out for a night on the town – you will look like a million bucks without trying (and without breaking the bank!).

The True Wraps

Whether your style is more utilitarian or girly – there is a wrap skirt for you.  Simply Add your favorite basic tank or tee to any of these lovelies and you will be sure to turn heads.

  1.  Olive Flounce Wrap – Shein $20.  100% cotton and looks amazing, but I can not speak to its quality – the price is so good it makes me wonder! Worth a try as it is a great silhouette in a fabuouls color that transitions easily to Fall.
  2. Denim Maxi Wrap – Level 99 (at anthro)  $98.  This one is timeless in the denim chambray and it will also transition right into Fall with your favorite boots.
  3. Navy Stripe Midi Wrap – Gap currently $26 with code “deal” and what a deal!  I love all things nautical and this fits the bill.  Toss on a white tank and your favorite gold or navy flips for day or even your favorite chucks or camel sandals for night.  Add a denim jacket if it gets chilly.  It doesn’t get much easier.
  4. I am also smitten (by way of the web) with this Striped Blue and White Wrap Ruffle Skirt from Shein – $25.  I just ordered – so i will report back.
  5. Finally – my favorite wrap skirt ever.  In crisp cotton poplin (see pic above) and the most amazing blue – the Ruffle Wrap Skirt from JCrew – on sale for $79.99.  They had sold out and a few sizes just popped back up.  So run if you want this lovely!

The Pretenders

Love the look of a wrap skirt, but don’t enjoy actually wrapping?  These skirts give you the look, yet have their own closure to make wearing them a snap.  And just like the real thing – the addition of a simple tank or tee makes the look complete.

The Short Story

Love the look, maxis and midis not your thing?  Don’t fret – this season the wrap skirt trend is even represented in mini length.  Here are my favorites:
