Adam Lippes x Target

The Adam Lippes x Target collection launched in-store and online on Sptemeber 27th and as with every Target designer collab,  I was up early and waiting by the doors before the store opened.

I must admit looking at the lookbook beforehand I wasnt too over-the-moon excited but definetly had my eyes on a few key pieces, #1 being this long sweater duster and I wasnt disappoointed. The duster is made of good quality heavy-knit, with shearling pockets that adds to the coziness of the sweater. The length is also great and the duster is overall perfect for these cool mornings we've been having in the East coast. 

I have been waiting an entire year to pull out my June by June Ambrose chain boots again and here they are in all their glory!

The Fall is just such a magical time for me (based on fashion alone) and I embrace it full-heartedly!

Thanks so much for reading!

Braid-y Bunch

As y'all know I have been digging the 70's trend this season and this abstract, floral print dress from H&M gives off a 70's vibe, plus it was under $15 and super comfy!

I gravitate towards easy pieces like dresses and jumpsuits often and like to add my own flair with accessories and my favorite, shoes! I added these over-the-knee boots which I have in this color and black to top off the 70's vibe and I shall warn you, these boots are going to be on HEAVY rotation all Fall/Winter long.

Blush Tones

Blush is probably one of the prettiest colors there is and wearing an all blush outfit makes the sweetest, most ladylike statement, in my opinion.

I tend to feel and look better in lighter neutrals than darker ones so I embrace pastels year long. It's all about making it appropriate for the season. For example, I added these pom pom fur taupe pumps to complete the look, I would have likely done an open toe sandal if I were to wear this outfit during warmer months.

Can we also talk about Charlotte Russe+?  They are seriously giving Forever 21+ a run for their money lately, my entire outfit minus the shoes is from CR+ and I love the fit and quality. Usually, light colored pants are see-through and unforgiving, showing every bump and lump but the weight on these pants is substantial, helping to camouflage any imperfections one might have. I hope CR+ keeps up the great work as I look forward to seeing a  growing and robust plus-size line from them in the near future (hopefully they'll expand their in-store plus space as well).

Thanks so much for reading!

Happy Friday! 

I am off today and I am planning on enjoying every minute of the day, first by sleeping in, getting a facial (much needed), finally getting a mani/pedi and lastly, spending time with my niece and nephew. 

If there's one thing I dislike is bi-polar weather like the type us East-coasters expereince every year around this time where it's 50 degrees in the mornings and 80 degrees in the afternoons, makimg it very difficult to dress appropriately. I have discovered the key to this type of dressing and that's layering.

I tend to wear jackets/blazers that I can easily take off when the weather gets warmer and keep the layers underneath breezy and light like this sheer leopard blouse and scuba knit pencil skirt. I also love this warm color combo, finishing off the look with a floppy hat my BFF gave me.

Oxford Stripe

Something like a PU pink patent skirt may seem impractical to some but I say this is quite the staple in my closet for many reasons; 1) it's a pencil skirt 2) it's pink and 3) it's a stand out piece, which I love having in my closet as an alternative to any basic staple.

 I have gotten so much use from this skirt, more so than I even imagined. Today, I paired it  with a classic oxford stripe collar shirt and my trusty nude pumps for a polished but eclectic look.

That 70's Dress

I'm just giving off 70's vibes all around, aren't I? From my obsession of suede to this paisley print bell-sleeve dress, I am digging the 70's this Fall, totally groovy (sorry, couldn't help myself)!

I also want to talk about these amazing earrings I found in my mom's jewelry chest which aren't from the 70's rather from the 80's but I thought they were so appropriate with this look. I also feel so special wearing something my mom wore before I was even a concept. Everything old is new.
