Grab Your Jacket and Go

Levi’s Denim Sherpa Jacket

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve left the house lately only to regret not grabbing a jacket. It’s just that time of year where weather is unpredictable and temperatures can change in a matter of minutes. My go-tos this season are my jean, leather, army jackets – how about yours?

Denim Skirts

Denim high Waisted Mini Skirt with Raw Hem

I never tossed my last jean skirt from the early aughts, but it was definitely relegated to the back of my closet. Anyone else? The on and off classic is surging back with a vengeance this autumn in a bevy of new styles – raw hemmed, step hemmed, button up, zip up – as well as old favorites. Dress it up or dress it down, but definitely make good use of your denim skirt this season!

Modern Minimal Sneakers

At the end of the day I’m really just a jeans and sneakers kinda gal. Clean jeans (usually) and cool sneakers, but I digress. I usually reach for my white Converse or a canvas slip-on, something comfortable that manages to look like a little bit of effort. Check out these ten pairs of modern minimal sneakers that would no doubt tie together any look.

Fall 2016 Wish List

1/Brass Hairpin  2/Brown Leather Backpack
3/Gold Heart Locket  4/Goldie Flat Booties

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Delicate Rings

Crescent Ring

I have stupidly small hands that look kind of ridiculous with large rings. Back in high school – shout out to the 90s! – I’d stack my fingers full of chunky silver rings, but the style gods have smiled upon us and much has changed since then. Not only are tiny thin rings the preferred look, but I also now prefer gold.  Check out these thirteen favorites.

All Patched Up

Patches-Design-Crush

Hot on the heels of the enamel pin trend is another – embroidered patches. As the temperature slowly starts to dip into autumn, jean jackets are being pulled out and patches being sewn and ironed on with abandon.  And after searching to the edges of the internet universe I’m back with 72 pieces of my favorite patch flair!
