Iris and Ink Blouse - Victoria Beckham Handbag - Vince Sweater - Sunday Riley Face Oil - Everlane Oxfords

It’s so rare that a buzzy beauty product actually lives up to the hype. I’m happy to report that Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil does just that. It truly makes my skin look better overnight. I’ve been rationing a deluxe-sized Sephora sample for a while now, but a full-sized bottle is on my current to-buy list.

In fashion news, fall fun in the form of cashmere, silk, and smart Oxfords. Check out all of my favorite shopping finds for the week…

1. Iris and Ink Striped Silk Blouse, $165.00
A closet staple in crisp navy and white, which will pair well with just about any color (including weekend denim).

Fall Splurge: Chelsea Boots

Wednesday, September 07, 2016 • Permalink • 

This post is part of our ongoing series on the must-have fashion splurges for Fall 2016.

Borrowed-from-the-boys looks will always be popular for fall. Straight-cut trousers, structured blazers, and crisp button-down shirts are all seasonal favorites. But, the best menswear-inspired fall closet staple is definitely a pair of black leather Chelsea boots.

These boots look particularly great with a pair of cropped jeans or pants, which just happen to be all the rage these days. It’s really the perfect time to invest in a pair of Chelsea boots. Here are a few of my favorite investment-worthy pair…

These buffed leather boots from Alexander Wang are about as classic as you can get.

Current/Elliott Dress - DKNY Pants - Olivia Moon Blazer - 3.1 Phillip Lim Flats - Equipment Shirt

Happy Labor Day! What better way to celebrate the traditional end of summer than with some sale shopping? While there are seasonal sales to be found in just about every online shop, the Nordstrom Summer Clearance Sale has one of the best selections, particularly when it comes to work-appropriate finds. Check out my favorites from the sale here, and then get shopping because this sale only runs through September 11.

1. Current/Elliott The Jackie Denim Shirtdress, $196.80 (was $328.00)
This classic shirtdress shape is flattering and won’t be going out of style anytime soon. As refreshing updates, it has a subtle released unfinished hem and snap closure.

Fall Splurge: The Camel Coat

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 • Permalink • 

This post is part of our ongoing series on the must-have fashion splurges for Fall 2016.

My first “grown up” coat was a camel-colored wool car coat from J.Crew (similar here), from back when J.Crew was still creating investment-quality classics. It was a divine coat. Chic. Effortless. Went with everything. I miss that coat.

While I’m all for building a diverse outerwear wardrobe, if I was asked to pick one fall coat style on which to splurge, I’d go with a camel coat. This timeless coat style will look just as nice over a suit as a cocktail dress, and will be as warm as it is good looking. Check out my favorite splurge-worthy camel coats for fall…

First up, my absolute favorite coat of any kind from the fall collections. This double-face wool coat has a slightly cocoon shape and dropped shoulders, which add just enough drama to make the old-school style modern.

Loving This Week: Platform Oxfords + African Black Soap

Tibi Sweater - Shea Moisture Body Wash - London Fog Trench - Paloma Barcelo Shoes - Etoile Isabel Marant Sweatshirt

I’m all about problem solving with my shopping this week. First, in the beauty department, I found a new body wash to snap me out of a skincare rut. It’s not just a fantastic skin-healing treat, it’s also organic and made without any of those nasty additives we all try to avoid these days. Then, over in fashion, the answer to what to wear in a warm weather rainstorm.

Check out all of my favorite online shopping finds for the week…

1. Tibi Boiled Funnel Neck Pullover, $375.00

The pretty paprika color of this new-for-fall sweater is what first caught my eye. Then I saw the split shoulder seams with button straps. Gorgeous. This one is sure to be a sellout.
