BREAK THE “RULES”

So, that whole thing about not being able to wear white after Labor Day is almost as outdated as tattoo choker necklaces are. It’s true, and if you don’t believe me,  then see for yourself. The real rule should be: don’t wear white linen, canvas or any other light-weight looking garments/fabrics once the PSLs are in full swing. I happen to love wearing bright white pieces in the fall. While I wasn’t wearing pants as much this summer season due to the scorching hot temps, I did invest in quite a few white denim pants and I fully intend on wearing them through October (not kidding). For instance, these wide leg white denim pants from Banana Republic look classic and sophisticated with this simple black J.Jill knit. I love the strong contrast of black and white; it’s clean and timeless. Creamy pink turtlenecks and flowy chiffon blouses styled with these wide-leg beauties will look just as stunning in the fall, as sleeveless tanks and halter tops do in the summer. See! An all-season staple. It’s honestly all in your head. If you’re confident about what you’re wearing and own it, others will follow suit and these silly clothing rules will officially be a thing of the past.

DARKER DAYS & LIGHTER SHADES

I don’t think a week has gone by where I haven’t worn a turtleneck. I’m not sure what my obsession is lately; it probably has something to do with the fact that they’re unbelievably comfortable and make me feel as though I’m cuddled underneath my favorite blanket. Recently, I made my way to the Banana Republic Factory store and let’s just say my wallet hates me. In addition to this mixed-stitch chunky turtleneck, I got several sweaters, a couple dresses and some much needed winter accessories—I couldn’t help myself! And in an effort to mix up my standard denim duds I’ve been giving a new neutral the spotlight. {Enter} powder grey high rise skinny jeans; one of my favorite purchases this season. They go with everything and add a much needed pep in my fall wardrobe. Seriously, give some lighter shades a try this winter, you’d be surprised at how much they can revamp your style.
