Well dolls, Fall is officially here! And not only does that mean the re-emergence of pumpkin spice, it means Fall fashion! I’m talking about boots, chunky sweaters, and my favorite…the accessories! This year I’m proud to have partnered with Mark & Graham to showcase some of my favorite looks from their Fall collection, and how I style them for the season.

We all know I’m handbag obsessed, so I’ll start there. To me, Fall is all about luxe fabrics, prints and colors. One of the pieces that really stood out to me was this calf-hair tote in a fun and stylish leopard print.  Hand-crafted in Florence, you can tell the amazing quality and have a touch of luxury without breaking the bank. While the print pairs beautifully with autumnal colors, I can’t wait to wear this one year-round as my every-day bag. The tote is amazing for my day-time looks, but I also love the statement clutch for the evening. Everything I love about the tote – the quality of leather details and hide, my embossed monogram, but in a smaller and elegant package! I recently wore this look to my Anniversary dinner and got so many compliments!

They say good things come in small packages and I have to agree! Sometimes you don’t want a full tote, but a transitional bag that can take you from day to evening.  Enter the collection of gorgeous crossbodies that keep you hands-free and stylish. I love this navy suede equestrian bag that is a take on the classic saddle bag but with gorgeous braiding details. While it comes with a matching crossbody strap (the navy suede is gorgeous), I opted for a mix-n-match strap for a little extra flair! And you can’t have a roundup of purses without mentioning a classic black bag.  In my case, I got two! The first is an Essential Italian crossbody that you can use with or without a strap (pictured below without), the second is a camera-bag style with a classic silhouette and in the most buttery soft leather. Don’t even get me started on the fun shadow-print monogram! You’ll see me rocking this beauty all the time!

And yes, the bags are truly showstoppers – but Mark and Graham’s accessories don’t stop there.  With the cooler temperatures already upon us, I was so excited to see the expanded collection of scarves in new color-ways and patterns. I opted for the windowpane scarf in ivory/charcoal with a subtle, tonal ivory monogram. I think the neutral color palette will pair well with any Fall/Winter look and will be a must-have as I gear up for holiday travel. As I mention travel, I can’t forget to show you dolls the essentials I got to keep me organized on the go. First up are the jewelry cases to keep my baubles safe and in order. I already received the smaller version as the most incredible gift, but  I was so excited to upgrade to the medium size that holds more and is perfect for organizing even when at home. Lastly, one of the products I’m most excited about – these stylish packing cubes! No longer will I be rifling through my suitcase for a particular outfit or pair of shoes. This 6-piece set includes four packing cubes (multiple sizes), one shoe bag, and one laundry bag to keep dirty clothes separate. I also love how it makes unpacking easier, since you can simply unzip and transfer to a drawer at your destination, and you’re all set. Of course, travel looks a little different this year, but I can’t wait to use these for my upcoming babymoon and holiday plans.

Now that you’ve seen some of my favorite pieces, I can’t wait to hear which items you’re loving! Here’s to kicking off Fall in the most stylish way possible! xo

The holiday season can often be characterized by travel.  Trips home to see family, last-minute work trips, or that getaway we all need to reset and recharge. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been to Dallas, LA, and Florida. Next week I’m headed to Chicago, Tampa, and San Diego! And when I travel, I always aim to do with a bit of glamour. Long coats, comfortable heels, and luxe but manageable fabrics are part of my travel style. What else? A fashionable bag of course! Thanks to Mark & Graham, I’ve totally upped my travel bag game. I was gifted a canvas weekender bag with leather details, personalized with my initials. While you can get the monogram in a variety of colors, I, of course, opted for black as a classic neutral. I love the combination of the neutral canvas, the black lettering, and the cognac brown leather.

 

Because I was traveling for work, I also needed to have my laptop and everyday essentials in-tow. Enter this luxe, leather laptop bag by Mark & Graham. It has the perfect amount of pockets for storage and a laptop sleeve for easy (and safe) access to your computer while on the go. I loved using this on the trip, but it’s also become my everyday work bag. Lastly, I packed up all of my cosmetics and tiny loose goodies in the leather pouch and roll by Mark & Graham. I can’t live without these! With lipsticks, pens, stain removers, etc…I’ve got everything gathered in one place to keep myself organized.  While these items are great for travel, I’ve already incorporated them into my everyday routine. Thanks to Mark & Graham for keeping me stylish!

All Things Tweed

all-things-tweed-2019
 

It seems like this time of year, there happens to be something gorgeous and tweed popping up in every store window! It’s one of my favorite patterns/fabrics, and I love all variations from pastels to holiday tones. Here are some of my favorite picks that might make your gifting list or your own wish list!

 

1. Veronica Beard Blazer: A classic blazer with a modern twist. From the buttons to the patent piping, the details are what make this tweed blazer an absolute stunner.

 

2. Newsboy Hat: The cutest hat that will pair beautifully with a topcoat or a mini dress and tights. The price is a steal!

 

3. Sandro Bag: For that Chanel-esque feeling

 

4. Gucci Loafers: Comfy loafers in a seasonally-agnostic shade of pink. These are personally on my wish-list!

 

5. Maje Dress: The prettiest, feminine dress that doesn’t seem too sweet.

 

6. Rebecca Taylor Pink Jacket: Another lady-like piece that will make you add “Afternoon Tea” to your holiday agenda!
