Poncho Please!

I've been crushing on ponchos and over-sized sweaters this season. Easy to wear and pair with leggings, denim or leather. Make sure to choose a bottom with a slim fit to balance out the top heavy silhouette. Since my poncho is muted, I like the leather detail around the collar. You can also add detail with a printed or fringed poncho.

Feather Frock

Not only am I swooning over the mangled feather pattern on this dress, the leather details add a subtle, yet trendy statement. The colors on the dress are warm and can complement any complexion or hair color, which makes this a simple dress to wear. Add accessories or keep it simple with tights and booties.

Though I'm a self proclaimed color enthusiast, black is such an easy color to wear. Today is black on black with the addition of a scarf and a little gold bling for contrast.

Little Leather Details

There's nothing better than throwing on a cozy sweater on a crisp fall day. It's a simple solution to needing an outfit on the fly! The over-sized sweater is detailed with leather pockets as is the arm on the wool topper. All is complete with a leather over the knee boot.

Twill Thrill

Twill is such an easy pattern to pull off. The design is so small, that it can easily be paired, mixed and matched with other colors or prints. I'm going with a deep red and white stripe cotton tee with a faux leather elbow-patch. The October outfit is classic and subtle.

Hail the Shirttail

It's officially fall and I'm looking forward to tailgates, layers and afternoon coffee drinks. The arrival of crisp air brings leather paneled leggings and a shirttail sweater. (these are everywhere!) Finished off with a tiered gold necklace and a classic black pump.

Summer Shades

The summer days are drifting away and I'm feeling nautically inspired and pairing navy and white. Though, a disbeliever of the "no white after Labor Day" rule, I'm trying to get in all the white I can before the fall air arrives.

Safari Scarf

Today's casual look combines a khaki (yes, two outfits involving khaki in a row!) skirt with your standard stripe top. Mixing prints is a fashion favorite and adding a light weight scarf with wild safari elements amps up a basic look. Feeling the urge for color, I'm prancing around in green suede flats.

Classic Khaki

Adding accessories can bring an outfit to life. While I admit, the changes on this outfit are minimal; accessories add to a otherwise lackluster khaki dress. The leather "H" belt was such a great find and I can't wait to adorn more attire with it.

Still Sunny

Post summer showers, leave me feeling the need for neon. Keeping it simple in white d'orsay flats and gold jewelry.

Gray Day

Every woman should own an effortless, cotton dress. This is one of mine. It is a throw on and go frock that I can dress up or down; add flats or sandals; jewels or none. The simple shift is comfortable with a cool subdued gray tone and gold zipper pockets. To add some shine, I layered on a favorite Moon & Lola tiered necklace.
