NOT YOUR NEPHEW’S CAPE

I’ve worn it all! From ponchos to outlandish jumpsuits; every new style trend there is, I’ve tried at least once. Which is why I had to give this black blazer cape a try, especially since it has been flooding my Instagram feed. I’m a big fan of a classic black blazer so this wasn’t too difficult for me to adjust to. However, Josh isn’t a huge fan; he thinks I look like Dracula. And now when I slip this on, that’s all I can think about (eye roll). If this blazer cape didn’t have the pronounced shoulder shape, I don’t think I would like it as much. The sleek shoulder point really gives this blazer a high fashion vibe. Although I decided to pair it with a more casual ensemble, it would look just as perfect layered over a red dress, (Valentine’s Day idea) or any bold color for that matter. Initially, when I was planning to style this outfit I had a black top underneath, but it didn’t give the cape the appropriate air time it deserved. So, I relied on my one of my favorite classics: a white oxford shirt. While I have many white button downs, this one from J.Jill, appropriately named ‘Essential White Shirt’,  is my recent go-to. It fits perfectly and J.Jill offers petite sizing so it’s the perfect length for my torso and arms. Josh’s comments aside, this cape is definitely a keeper and if you haven’t given it a shot, go for it!

‘STRANGER THINGS’ INSPIRED

dsc_0798editeddsc_0807editeddsc_0815editeddsc_0843editeddsc_0845editedDetails: Cambridge Fair Isle Pullover c/o J.Jill, here |

You know those sweaters from the 70’s, the ones with the crochet patterns that stretch across the shoulders? You know, the ones most recently on Stranger Things? Yeah, those. Well, I’m a huge fan of 70’s style and this Cambridge Fair Isle Pullover c/o J.Jill has me swooning. First of all, the fit is flawless. It’s just the right length and it’s super soft and cozy. I paired it with my favorite pair of jeans, but I have plans to style it with a skirt and layer it over a chambray shirt. I think some people tend to shy away from bold sweaters like this one because it’s not your typical solid color sweater and that’s what makes it great. This fall, I challenge you to wear something bold and feel confident in it. That’s difficult, I know, but when you do it once and realize you can own it, then you can wear just about anything–no joke! Go on, and share you bold, out of the box styles with me :).

THE UNLIKELY DUO

Sweater weather is here and I’ve been going out of my mind because my fall clothes are all at “home” in New Jersey. I wasn’t prepared for the fall weather to happen so fast; it went from hot to cold like that! I guess I’ll have to go shopping until I can make it home to get my clothes ;). In the meantime, I did add a new addition to my wardrobe with this off-the-shoulder wide turtleneck knit sweater. I’ve been waiting  to wear it and was finally able to style it this weekend. It’s SO cozy AND it includes two of my favorite clothing features: bare shoulders and a turtleneck. It’s a sweater of unity, bringing the summer and fall seasons together to make a sexy yet cozy knit. And not only did I discover a new sweater style, BUT I found a fresh new  clothing site. That’s right, another shopping site to peruse and another virtual shopping cart to fill. Dress Lily offers a wide variety of clothing from swimwear to formal dresses and everything in between, all at a reasonable price. The quality is exceptional and there are so many options in each clothing category that you’ll have to continue to edit your shopping cart. You’ll also notice that I found my booties for the season and these adorable wedges are from DSW the designer is not one I’ve heard of before, Audrey Brooke. However, they’re comfortable and give me the height I need to make me eye level with my peers LOL. Even though I’m currently lacking in fall clothing I can assure you I’ll have some more new styles to share in the upcoming weeks! Hello, shopping spree!
