sharing my weekend outfits with you from New York to Nashville.
Maybe it's been the cold front, or maybe its just me, but I've been v lazy these days. The shirt and jean combo hasn't been cutting it for me, so I decided to spice things up and start utilizing the jumpsuits in my closet. Not only are they easier to wear (hello, it's already a full outfit), but you know they look good because they are one full piece already.
The Room Label sent me this beautiful clementine colored strapless jumpsuit and I fell in love. After patiently waiting for the cold weather to pass, I wore it for the first time to Jordan's sister's wedding in late April. And even though temps were nowhere near warm, I wore it with pride (and goosebumps). Aside from being obsessed with the sleek and flattering cut, I absolutely love the idea of having a linen jumpsuit to last me through summer. I picture wearing it for casual daytime looks, like ones similar to below, but I know that I can just as easily throw on a pair of strappy heels (like I did here) and dress it up.

I accessorized this jumpsuit with white sneakers and earrings to make it more summery. I kept the look casual with sneakers and a denim jacket, and it was perfect for the activities that Elissa and I post shoot.

When it comes to workwear, experimenting with jumpsuits is one of my favorite things to do for spring. They add a different silhouette to an otherwise uniform wardrobe. For this look, I paired a turtleneck and sock boots with this Hope Ave Jumpsuit. I love that the jumpsuit pays homage to a suit with the conservative plaid print. I wanted to contrast the plaid with a darker color instead of a light white, I think this brings more attention to the pattern.
For warmer days, I would pair the jumpsuit with a sleeveless blouse and heeled mules slides like the ones below:
The purpose of this article is to encourage you to wear your formalwear in more ways than one. Obviously this depends on the type of piece that you have.
If your go to is a leather jacket, then then break it out for the festivities. It is durable, super cute and it's the perfect way to add color to your look.
My number one pick for green Saint Paddy's Day accessories is a green bomber jacket. Dress it up like I did below, or down with a graphic tee, turtleneck, jeans and boots.
Stay warm and make a statement in a green faux fur coat. If you're not into a bright green, opt for a forest green, or dark green. It will go with more.
Another easy to go on this holiday is a green pant. Below, I am wearing a velvet trouser, but another option is an army green pant or denim.
Last but not least, throw on a green blazer, for a polished Saint Paddy's Day look. Wear it with a simple long sleeve, or fun tee underneath, it'll look great with whatever you pair it with. Plus, you can wear it to work the next day and act as if you didn't spend Sunday in Soutie celebrating. Just make sure it doesn't smell like beer.
Forget the cardigans and khakis, let's spice things up. The patent leather creates a rock and roll edge that this romper needs. I kept it simple on the accessories because of the bold materials of this look. Add a leather jacket to contrast a glitzy piece.
Olive green is one of my favorite colors for fall. It is flattering on almost all skin tones and pairs well with everything. To me it is the perfect neutral color to integrate into your winter wardrobe.
My new favorite piece to add to a holiday look is a fitted bodysuit. They hug your figure and create a tailored fit that a shirt can't match. Luckily for us brands are starting to take notice and creating unique styles that can be worn for formal occasions instead of for a night out. For an elevated twist on a holiday party look, I paired a sheer, high neck bodysuit with green corduroy trousers. It's sexy, yet sophisticated and even though the suit is sheer, it doesn't feel over the top. Plus the green trousers also add a pop of color and a holiday feel.

There is a familiar nostalgia about the crispness of fall air and the transition to boots and sweaters. It's a bittersweet goodbye to summer, but a warm welcome to the colder weather that us New Englander's know so well. There is something refreshing about fall to me, it feels like the beginning of something. It's time to reset and restart and this reflects in the way that we dress for fall.
how to wear the statement sleeves trend for a work outfit and for a casual outfit. 80's are back. When I first heard this I cringed, the 80's are my least favorite decade in fashion. The styles were so out there and gaudy with neon colors, perms and ill fitting clothing (MC Hammer pants). Even after seeing the Saint Laurent sparkle boot during fashion week my feelings haven't changed much. However, when details are taken from the decade and simplified, and modernized, I can get behind them. Like this simplified statement sleeve with a wrap waist. In addition to being "on trend", it creates a flattering silhouette. The volume of the sleeves paired with a slim waist, creates the illusion of a smaller med section. I chose to pair this H&M balloon sleeve top with high waisted denim and a monogram belt. This style can be overwhelming, so I recommend keeping the look simple. Here are some other ways that I plan on wearing it:
