Holiday time can be dominated by jewel tones like ruby, emerald, and even metallics. With this look, I wanted to switch things up and wear candy-colored hues that are usually reserved for Spring. The statement piece of this outfit is definitely my coat, which came from my favorite vintage store in Jacksonville. After I purchased, the owner told me that the coat actually belonged to Nat King Cole’s wife, and she was so happy it went to a fashion-lover would appreciate it. That beautiful story about the coat’s history made me love it even more. As if the pastel tweed and mother of pearl buttons weren’t reason enough!
While my coat may be vintage, the dress underneath can be purchased in-stores today! The cozy sweater fabric and the prettiest shade of pink make this J.Crew piece an easy no-brainer. Of course, I paired my pink outfit with pink, satin Manolos to finish the look! How sweet!
I absolutely love pinstripes. I feel like they come across as super professional, or even masculine, and that’s my favorite thing about them. What might originally be thought of as an 80’s power-suit, can now be worn in a hip and modern way.
For my power suit, I looked no further than one of my favorite brands, Ganni. Their feminine sensibility brings the fun back to fashion, and this suit doesn’t disappoint. I paired my straight-leg trousers and blazer with a rolling stones tee, silver pumps and a box bag. My favorite thing about these Ganni pieces? You can wear them together as a suit, or as separates! Throw on the blazer with jeans and a tee or bodysuit, and the trousers would be pretty with a bright sweater, collared shirt, or lace blouse. The options are endless!
Well, it’s still hot as hell down South, but every day I’m willing Fall to arrive. Regardless of if temperatures are obliging, I’m starting to make the seasonal transition with my wardrobe. That also means I’m starting to lust over a new batch of items. I’m talking turtlenecks, some earthy tones, and a little bit of comfy/cozy. This week’s Lust List is a hodgepodge. – but I love all of these items and am pulling the trigger on them one by one. Enjoy!
Aviator National Sweatshirt & Pants: Cozy and bright separates for those Fall. nights curled up on the couch. I’m such a fan of Aviator Nation and this pair. Doesn’t disappoint.
Commando Bodysuit: These Commando bodysuits are my absolute favorite. I have a racerback and sleeveless racerback, but its time to get one with sleeves for the cooler weather!
Chocolate Brown Mules: The most gorgeous shoes that will be so beautiful with plaids and other earth tones this Fall! And look at that shoe shape…so sexy!
