Zebra Crossing

A wrap dress is a wardrobe staple and I adore anything with a busy print! This wrap embodies classic color that is essential for fall and winter. The mix of olive, brown and black make for a wear-with-anything outfit! The use of a dramatic kimono sleeve is flirty and fun, yet sophisticated enough for work. So far, this is a top purchase of the season. Today, paired with boots, but could easily be dressed up for evening with pumps. Add sparkle for holiday with a sequin gold clutch and a blinged cocktail ring!

Beloved Brocade

The addition of texture instantly adds glam uto any outfit. Brocade is a flattering trend that has the ability to work with whatever is already in your closet. Today's pairing is a simple, everyday tie blouse with brocade pants. The finishing touch is my ultimate winter add-on; a fur vest. Easy enough, right?

Cranberry Crush

A week out from Thanksgiving and food is already on my mind! Holidays remind me of family gatherings and colorful spreads. The sweater wraps dress is an ode to the cranberry side. The hue is muted and warm and perfect with other neutral colors such as black and white. All wrapped up with the edition of a wedge boot and winter coat this November day.

Sweater Weather

Temperatures drop and the layers are piled on! Today is a combination of a sweater tunic, leggings, a crisp white blouse and a light scarf for a pop of color. Keeping with the layering (and staying warm) trend, I added a black riding boot. Testing the waters with a bold lip, I took it one step below oxblood with a cider berry.

Primary Colors

Today it's back to basics by combining primary colors. The tweed top has metallic thread woven into it for a touch of shine and the tie on the back adds a chic element. The black walkable wedge can easily take you from work to play as a transition piece.
