Putting It Into Neutral

Well, the weather is slowing starting to change for the season, and I’m breaking out a couple of my new favorite pieces for Fall.  A sweater dress is such an easy, transitional piece as you can wear it with sneakers or flats in warmer weather, and move to over-the-knee boots or booties as colder weather approaches.  This year, I picked up a neutral dress from Banana Republic on sale that I couldn’t wait to wear. The cute sleeve detail and color make it the perfect piece to wear with cream, black, and other neutrals.


As we’re not totally in boot weather, I opted for my new favorite pair of sneakers courtesy of Cariuma.  If you haven’t heard of Cariuma before, they are an ethical sneaker company born our of Brazil.  The leather has a premium and buttery feel, and the wide range of colors will have you wanting more than one pair. For my first pair, I chose a nude leather in their classic OCA silhouette that is sure to go with every outfit! I can’t wait to wear these on-set when I go to LA. for work next month.  In addition to this outfit, I see myself wearing these with all black, jeans and comfy sweaters.


Lastly, I finished this look with my new beige Chanel bag to keep my outfit all neutral. While I love all of these items paired together, you’ll see me wearing each with a variety of pieces all Fall long!

A shirtdress is such a classic piece, and I’ve been searching for the perfect one for quite some time. They’re either too short, too thin or cut in a way that can seem cheap or unflattering. Well, the hunt has come to an end, as I found the dress that was gifted to me by Abbey Glass.  The dress is a perfect length that welcomes work-days or weekends in the town. The fabric feels luxe with a little sheen and complements the A-line shape that is flattering on any body type. What really gets me is the Abbey Glass attention to detail. French cuffs,  the dainty buttons, and a removable waist-tie. It seems one of my favorite Southern designers has thought of it all.  To finish my look, I threw on another iconic piece also by Abbey Glass…a classic trench! The rich champagne color elevates this outwear piece, with more attention to detail with bow accents on the cuff. I finished my look with Balenciaga pumps, but you’ll find me wearing this dress/coat combo with a variety of shoes and accessories to switch up my look.


Thank you to Abbey Glass for these beautiful pieces!

Black & Blue




Remember in the ’90s when tube tops were all the rage? I remember wearing them with low-rise jeans for a Britney Spears-inspired look. Well, it might not be the 90’s, but I recently bought a tube top for the first time in a LONG time. Instead of wearing it as I would as a team, I opted for a more subdued and age-appropriate look. No bare midriffs here, because I paired the blacktop with a high-waisted navy midi skirt. I love this look, because it pairs black and blue (a combo I love), in a way that actually makes the look seem like a dress! While neither items break the bank, the top is truly a steal from Target! The skirt is a wonderful find from Cos, with interesting pocket details and buttons cascading down the back (or front if you prefer). I finished my look with silver mules and my favorite Céline sunnies!
