I’ve already started getting invites for Fashion Week, which is quite the reminder for me that fall is just around the corner. I guess technically it’s not until September 22nd, but I am still getting excited at the thought of chunky knit sweaters, turtlenecks, booties, blazers and blanket scarves…read more >
Over the past five years I have really grown to adore wearing hats. I always loved them from afar but never seemed to feel very confident whenever I put them on. But then I discovered Rag & Bone and Goorin Bros. and found the right fit and style that I felt comfortable wearing. Then fairly recently, within the last year or two, I started investing in Janessa Leone hats and haven’t looked back. They are on the pricier side, but if you are a hat person, they are totally worth the investment, trust me!
Soon enough we will be smack dab in the middle of transitioning into fall and eventually winter, so I thought it would be fun to show you a couple of ways to style a summery woven wide brim hat for the next few weeks, but also share a few of my favorite outfits where I wore my gray wool/felt hats, which will be more appropriate for the upcoming cooler months.
Here are a handful of my favorite outfits I’ve worn over the past year!

I have been a fan of ModCloth ever since I started blogging, which was back in 2008. I eventually began working with the brand shortly after that (they even named a dress after me!) and they were the first company to run an ad on my site, which is so cool to think about. Needless to say I have a great relationship with them and am so excited to partner with them again!So let’s dive right in. Today’s topic is: workwear! Although I don’t technically have to go into an office everyday, I often have meetings with clients and brands, so when I need to look a bit more professional, I like to have easy, go-to dresses that I can slip on and look put together in minutes.
This dress is a perfect example because the striped pattern acts as the main focal point, allowing for simple accessories that can quickly be swapped out depending on what your post-work plans might be. In this case, I chose to wear these cute neutral booties (shop similar styles here) with the dress to give it an understated vibe that didn’t feel too fussy. But you could easily dress up this look by wearing open toed sandals and a clutch or dress it down by wearing cute flats and a leather tote.

And speaking of totes, this particular one is my new fave. I love that it has three separate compartments that comfortably fit my computer, iPad, wallet, camera and anything else I might need for the day. Plus I love the mixed materials of canvas and leather – it really gives the bag a polished feel.
I am always advising my clients on where to find great work pieces that are versatile and cute, so I would love to know where you guys shop for your work clothing? Are you familiar with ModCloth’s awesome workwear options? If you have a few more minutes, shop around the site to find some more cute shoes, tops and bottoms for the office!
With this crazy heatwave we have been experiencing in New York, I’ve hardly been able to bring myself to blow dry my hair, put on makeup or wear anything but a tank top and shorts. So to beat the heat, I’ve been embracing a more au natural look and only using a handful of beauty products, which include…
As someone who works from home for the most part, I usually wear fairly casual clothing when it’s just me sitting at my desk. But there are also plenty of days that I have meetings or client sessions and I want to take my style up a notch and wear something I feel good in. On my busiest days, I definitely wear a few different “hats” whether it’s “blogger, stylist, friend or girlfriend,” but I always want to make sure that my outfits transition effortlessly into whatever it is I might be doing. I find that during the summer I am drawn to pretty, lightweight shift dresses that I can easily dress up or down and this pretty white linen dress with elegant embroidery from Tommy Bahama is the perfect piece to wear to a meeting then straight out to happy hour with friends. Case in point: I wore this look earlier to a causal client session (a pair of simple flat sandals were in my bag – see my styling tip below) straight out to drinks with Casey and a few mutual colleagues at Parlor for some after work drinks.Styling tip:
Stash a high heel sandal in your bag to swap out your flat sandals, and a favorite accessory such as a statement necklace or a couple of bracelets to elevate your look in seconds. Or if jewelry isn’t your thing, grab your favorite red lipstick to really pack some punch!

You guys all know how much I love sunglasses, right? I feel like I have every shape and style imaginable but I’m of the mindset that I can never have too many pairs of sunnies because I love how they add an extra something to my outfits. I actually have a hard time finding a photo of myself where I’m not wearing a pair! read more >
