Well, the weather has been crazy and unseasonably warm. But leave it to the universe to send a cold snap on the couple days that I went home to Florida! Well, I jumped on the opportunity to layer up with some of my favorite Winter pieces. You’ve seen this Rag & Bone coat before, but this year I’m updating my seasonal staples with some new accessories. While you can’t go wrong with a classic pair of black jeans (currently on sale for $12.53!) and a turtleneck, it’s my new beret and mules that I’m excited about. Cream shoes in Winter? Yes, believe it! These are my new favorite pair of shoes to slide on for both comfort and style. I particularly love to wear them with all black or chunky sweaters and jeans. And my latest beret? A mint green find from Goorin Bros. that matches my backdrop perfectly! I love wearing the mint with black, cream, camel and even mustard! I’m always excited about an unexpected color combination!
When you hear the colors red, white and blue – what season do you think of? Summer, right!
Well, for Fall I took the Americana color palette and made it more appropriate for the cooler temperatures that we’re so desperately wanting.
Stripes are a must for every season in my opinion, and this look is no exception. I paired my favorite blue/white striped skirt with an equally stripey tee from Forever 21. I love the long sleeves and the red-orange hue of the collar and stripes. Plus, the price isn’t bad to boot!
Speaking of boots (or sneakers for that matter), a casual and cool white sneaker goes with absolutely everything! I wear these with the most colorful outfits (like this one) or even all black! I even wear them to business meetings to make work attire more youthful.
Lastly, I finished my look with my red leather jacket that is uniquely Fall! Thriller-inspired, the beautiful red goes with everything from camel (like my beret) to other bright hues. With the addition of the beret, I suddenly feel more Parisian and less Fourth of July. But hey, nothing wrong with bringing a little summer into this season!
Well, it’s official – the trend of the season is the beret. It’s back!
Quick aside, I had a cashmere beret in high school and people made fun of me for wearing it. I was so embarrassed that I gave it away. I wish I could’ve told myself to let the haters and hate and keep that beautiful beret!
In any case, I’m making up for lost time now. While in Ireland, I threw on an emerald beret and coordinating faux croc crossbody bag. I’m very into dark greens this season and I felt these two accessories would be beautiful with other neutrals. For walking around the city, I threw on my favorite comfy Cos dress (sorry it’s sold out) and finished the look with a casual cream jacket (on sale). The oversized lapels, cropped silhouette and drawstring hemline give it an oversized yet put-together fit!
Here’s to more days rocking our favorite Parisian accessory. Très chic!
