ANIMAL PRINT: THE SEASONLESS GEM

Details: Primark animal print drawstring tie top, similar here | J. Crew Toothpick denim pants, here |

I told you I wasn’t letting go of white pants. The mornings have been crisp and the afternoons have been warm. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I walked out in a full-on sweatsuit Sunday morning to run errands and by the time I got home, I was sweaty and cranky. I feel like they say this every season, but animal print is in fact BACK. That is if it ever went away. The verdict is still out on that. Anyway, as I was running errands I obviously purchased some fall staples, one of which ended up being a leopard print turtleneck. I think what I love most about animal prints is that they’re typically the perfect combination of neutral colors: black and white, brown and beige, light brown and black…the list goes on. I got this black and white animal print top earlier in the summer and I think it can transition well into the fall months. Just swap out the white denim and open-toe sandals with a dark wash denim pant and thigh-suede boots, and throw on a chunky black coatigan, voila! Instant fall look.

This weekend I’m planning to go through my closet and evaluate the joy each of my garments has brought to me this summer season, and if there’s anything that can transition as flawlessly into fall and winter as this top. I think the only word I have left for this post is RAWR!

Happy Monday! Stay sassy.

ANOTHER PULLOVER, ANOTHER FALL SEASON

Details: DAMART button neck jumper (beige), here | American Eagle flannel, similar here |

Fall is the season of pumpkin beer, pretending to understand football and of course… cozy pullovers. I know I sound redundant, but classic cozy knits never go out of style. I mean, I’m way too old to be donning my Alma mater sweats so I have to find the next best thing. From plush fleeces to chunky wool knits, I have them all. But this new knit has become a steady staple in my fall wardrobe and unlike my Polo pullovers, this one is from the land of croissants, art and beauty. That’s right, it’s from one of the most fashion-forward countries, France. The brand is Damart, and while it’s widely known in France for its thermals, it also offers a wide variety of clothing for the fashion-conscious woman. Not to mention, it’s super affordable! Whether you’re shopping for your mom or yourself, you’re bound to find something to help complete your fall/winter wardrobe.

In terms of this outfit, I think it’s pretty safe to say that I’m a fan of neutrals. And while I love wearing shades of ivory and cream, my new winter skin shade of Casper 0001 is not cooperating. In an effort to add some color and warmth I layered this cozy knit over a warm sunset-inspired plaid flannel. It’s definitely an outfit to wear for the Sunday football games you tune out while gorging on nachos, and can even serve as the perfect post-Thanksgiving dinner look.

Happy shopping!

LET QUILTED COAT & VEST SEASON BEGIN

Details: Ann Taylor bonfire sweater, here | Quilted down coat in Peat c/o J.Jill, here |

So we’ve had a few true fall days, but it looks like we’re going to be back in the 80-degree weather today. I don’t know about you, but I find it super frustrating planning my outfit in the morning because I’m cold when I wake up and sweating on my lunch break. Despite what we might be experiencing, the season we’re currently in is in fact fall. And that means that we’re in quilted coat season. Every fall I seem to get myself a new quilted coat and this olive green lightweight down coat from J.Jill has become my favorite. It’s super lightweight and breathable so it’s actually easy to wear in this flighty weather. I typically gravitate toward taupe or black, but I’m loving this dark olive green color because it’s neutral yet adds a necessary pop of color. Speaking of color, this Ann Taylor Bonfire sweater is AMAZING. It’s a 70’s throwback (I think LOL). I love the vintage look and the pop of color really brightens up my neutral fall wardrobe. It’s comfortable and fun to layer with a quilted coat, denim jacket or puffer vest–HELL YES!

I think it’s safe to say that my fall closet is starting to come together, we just need Mother Nature to cooperate.
