BEST OF BLAZER 2017

Details: Target plaid boyfriend blazer, here | H&M ivory skirt, similar here

I love a good blazer and I’m also partial to oversized garments, so you can imagine how excited I was when I received this grey blazer for my birthday. Whether it’s a pair of boyfriend jeans or a chunky knit, and I can live in it, it has to be mine! When I first styled this blazer I paired it with high waisted black denim pants and a black shirt…super classic and the comfortable option. But when I decided to style it again, I really wanted to be a little less predictable. I slipped on this H&M ivory skirt, the same black top and slid on my OTK black suede boots–can you say perfection? I love the longer length of this blazer because it allows you to pair it with a dress, skirt AND your favorite denim pants. Neutral colors are my thing so the fact that this blazer is black, white and grey makes it easy to pair with a variety of colors. You can go bold with a vibrant red or soft with ivory or black–the options are limitless. Not only does this blazer look great, but it’s super comfortable and almost feels like a cozy cardigan instead of a blazer.

That being said, I think it’s safe to say this will be a timeless staple for many fall/winter seasons to come.

STICK TO THE CLASSICS

Details: (Older) Houndstooth Coat, similar here | American Eagle Plush Sweater, here 

I’ve always been a fan of the classics: tweed, herringbone, and houndstooth. Specifically houndstooth. There’s just something about it that brings an outfit to the next level and even though this lightweight houndstooth coat is from last year, it will never go out of style and it looks amazing with this plush mustard color sweater. As you can probably tell, it has the ability to bring the most casual of looks to the next level, but can also be worn just as easily with a classic LBD. I know I’ve been featuring some older pieces, but just like Monday’s cardigan, I found a few styles that are similar and just as perfect. This one from Brooks Brothers is super affordable and has a pop of red on its color–hello fabulous! Other perfect options include this one, this one and DUH this one! Regardless of if you consider your style preppy, minimalist or edgy, you can and will never go wrong with a classic staple like a houndstooth coat. Trust me!!

MORE COMFORT, LESS MONDAY

Details: Neutral color-block cardigan (old), similar here, here and here | UNIQLO jogger pants, here |

Mondays are THE worst, especially now that it’s getting colder. Although my work dress code is super casual, I always feel like when I dress up for work, I feel better and more productive. Super weird, I know. So in an effort to kick off the work week, I pulled out this somewhat monochromatic look. Neutrals are my favorite so it shouldn’t be surprising that this neutral color-block cardigan has made it to my wardrobe from last season. Yep! That’s right. It escaped my closet purge, and for good reason. It is super comfortable and it goes with EVERYTHING. With the goal of comfort on my mind, I slipped on another last season favorite, my UNIQLO joggers. These light beige joggers aren’t just for summer but work just as well in the fall and winter months. This entire look depends on the shoes. If you glide on a backless loafer, it will look super casual and sweet, but as soon as you slip on a pump, you’ve upped your outfit game. These Ann Taylor neutral pumps are also unbelievably comfortable and I also purchased them, you guessed it, LAST SEASON. Well, if there’s one thing I get right on a Monday, it’s this outfit. Now let’s go kick some ass!

READY, SET, COAT SEASON!

Details: J.Jill grey ‘Chelsea’ coat, here | French Connection light oatmeal high-neck sweater via Marshall’s, here  |

The time has come for us to fully load our closets with warm knits, wool socks and of course, coats. I have a bit of a problem with all clothes, but coats are my biggest weakness. I can never seem to have enough and one of my latest finds is this dark grey button-front coat ‘Chelsea Coat’ from J.Jill. I really like that it’s an easy coat to layer and work with. What I mean by that is, it’s a coat that has a lot of flexibility, it’s much less stiff, which makes it perfect for crisp fall days like today. I layered it over a super comfy and ultr-soft sweater, which is pretty thick and I still felt free and could move my arms easily. I guess if I could describe this coat in one word it would be: comfort. I feel 100% comfortable and even though it feels lightweight, it keeps you warm. Not to mention, I love a good collar and this one screams sophistication, am I right?!

This will not be the only new coat in my closet this season, but it will absolutely be one of my favorites.

Tell me: what will be your go-to coat this fall!?
