six favorite looks for fall

six-favorite-looks-for-fall

Fall is my favorite. For many reasons – changing leaves, football season, apple crisp – but right at the top is fall fashion. Sweaters. Boots. Jeans. Cozy.

I feel best wearing clothes that cover up this pale skin (shorts are not my favorite) and love dressing in layers. I live in the Seattle area where we have cooler weather (it’s been in the high 60′s this week), with likely drizzling rain on one day and crisp clear skies the next.

Since we can all use a few new outfit ideas, I’ve put together six of my favorite looks for fall. And BONUS! most items are recent purchases and not crazy-expensive.  All items that are available are linked to the source Continue Reading →

coffee chat no. 18

Every once in a while I just have all these random things to say and nowhere to fit them in, so they get all smushed together in a post series I like to call coffee chats.

Pretend we’re sitting across from each other (or standing on a soccer field) sipping our drinks (decaf, tall, extra hot, one pump mocha for me, please) and enjoying a few moments to just catch up and talk about all the things floating around in our minds.

Here are a few things I might chat about: Continue Reading →

break the rules: six white pieces to wear this fall

This is the outfit I wore yesterday:

It’s still warm outside (in the low 70′s) and so I’m still dressing summery-ish with short sleeves and cropped jeans and flats. The white shirt I put on (a cute hand-me-down from my sister – originally from jcrew) got me thinking about how it was supposed to be the final day of wearing white until spring.  You know the old rule: no white after Labor Day. So I did a few seconds of research and discovered that it was a fashion tradition stemmed from class divisions in the early 1900′s (here’s a quick article from time magazine).

Turns out, rules are meant to be broken (especially silly ones like this) and while white linen and gauzy silk may not be the best choices for cooler weather, wearing white during the fall and winter is not only okay, it’s also very stylish. Continue Reading →

what she wears (dressing Audrey)

Since the day she was born, I have loved dressing my girl. I like classic styles, easy and comfortable with a little bit of color and pattern thrown in for fun. It’s how I dress myself and what I gravitate to when shopping for Audrey.

My baby is now four, and sometimes she has an opinion on what she’d like to wear, but mostly not. I know. It won’t last long. So for now, I’m running with it.

a go-to cardigan

My favorite way to dress is usually in layers. It helps that I live where it’s not crazy hot in the summer, but this light-weight cardigan works no matter the temperature.

It’s just the right amount of slouchy and refined and I kinda want to wear it everyday. Throw it on with jeans or shorts and a tank and it’s my perfect summer choice.

The cardigan comes in gray (that’s what I have), black, olive and oatmeal. It is available here.

Do you have a go-to piece of clothing? Please share …
