The past couple weekends I have been lucky enough to experience New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts in the fall and see beautiful foliage, stay in quaint homes and pick apples from adorable orchards. I look at my photos afterward and am so blown away at the scenery I get to experience and love being able to share it with you guys on the blog. Needless to say, I don’t take it for granted!

So seeing that it’s now mid-October, I’ve slowly been breaking out my sweaters and boots, but was finally able to rock an actual coat not tot long ago. The one above happens to be by Lands’ End, who I have worked with in the past, if you remember this post, and am now styling up their black wool, basket-weave toggle coat for fall. In the case of this outfit, I loved mixing brown and black together and thought the black leather pants and the preppy printed sweater and black wool jacket created a nice juxtaposition all together. What do you think of this coat? Would you wear it, and if so, how would you style it? xo

P.S. You can shop the rest of their outerwear here!

HT-Blogpost-Football Growing up, my Mom was constantly slathering me and my Dad with sunscreen. Whether it was when we went hiking, swimming, skiing or camping, she taught me that the affects of the sun can be very damaging when your skin is not properly protected, no matter if it’s sunny or overcast outside.

Because of her, I’ve become a huge advocate of sunscreen and the positive affects it has by wearing it on a daily basis. So with that said, my recent partnership with Hawaiian Tropic has made me really excited to share their sunscreen products with you, which include Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance and Silk Hydration Face Lotion. I’ve been using both nonstop and compiled three outfits for fun autumn activities (above) that I will be doing this fall while staying protected with this easy to apply, yummy smelling sunscreen. :) To see more from Hawaiian Tropic, follow them on Instagram. xo

I’ve been a fan of Alexis Bittar’s jewelry since 2005, when I was first introduced to it while working as an intern in the accessories closet at InStyle. I remember the pieces that the editors would call in for shoots and thinking how chic and amazing the rings, bracelets and necklaces looked. I continued to admire his jewelry whenever I would pass by this store on Bleecker, thinking how fun it would be to wear one of his amazing statement bangles. Flash forward to 2012 when I was working with a client and we were pouring over her collection of Alexis Bittar pieces that she had cumulated over the years, I was still admiring the style and shape of his jewelry. And now, here we are today, where I get to style up my very own selected pieces from Alexis Bittar’s collection and share them with you on my blog. Pretty exciting in my book!

Christine-Cameron-Lands-End-Seattle-My-Style-Pill9

Yesterday I took Casey to Kerry Park in Queen Anne. It’s one of my favorite places in the city and I love taking people there when they come to visit because not only is the view breathtaking, I love seeing their initial reaction as we drive up to the overlook. Gorgeous, isn’t it? But on top of wanting to visit Kerry Park for the view, I knew it was the perfect place to shoot this outfit for Lands’ End. I partnered with the brand to try a new pair of their jeans since they recently relaunched their denim line. They are now focusing on achieving a great fit for everyone, offering low, medium and high rises (I’m wearing this style) in soft material and in various washes. The new styles also now come with slightly slanted back pockets and a higher waist in the back that trims your shape immediately. I also really like their chambray shirts, especially the striped one I’m wearing. You can check out more denim styles here!

I’ve been a fan of Forever 21 for over ten years now and have watched it grow and change from a place where I only bought my “going out” clothes to now what is a multifaceted store that offers everything from lingerie to pencil skirts and more. I have learned to shop their various stores, no matter how big or small, and spot and pick out really cute things that otherwise might have been overlooked. So when Forever 21 asked me to create three looks that illustrate parts of my everyday life, I was of course up for the challenge. I headed to the gigantic four-level store in Times Square and got to work. I thought about what the main aspects of my work life are and decided to start with what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. I knew I wanted to feel polished and put together so I oped for a really great pencil skirt as my starting point and went from there.

I picked a black and gold statement necklace to add a bit of boldness to this basic button down and to draw out the darker details in the skirt.

I kept the bag and shoes a neutral color to bring more attention to the bold, printed skirt.

This classic blue button down is very versatile and I love that I can dress it up for a meeting and then later on in the day, pair it with white jeans and sandals for a more casual look.

Forever 21: Necklace / Shirt / Skirt / Shoes / Bag (old but here is a similar style)

Style Tip: I realize that for those of you who work in a more traditional work environment, a brightly patterned skirt and open toed shoes may not be appropriate. If that is the case, or if this much print feels a little scary, I would suggest simply swapping out the skirt for a deep navy blue pencil skirt, and making your shoes the focal point. Try a pair of pointy-toed bold pumps in a zippy color like citron or coral as your statement piece.

Seeing as my mother lives all the way across the country in Seattle, we sadly aren’t going to be together this coming Sunday, but that doesn’t stop me from thinking about her of course, and what I would do if we were together. A typical morning on Mother’s Day in our house would be spent eating a homemade breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon and coffee. Afterward, we would most likely take a walk around the lake with Barney. I wish I could be with my family this weekend, but then yesterday when I received this gorgeous orchid and Calvin Klein perfume,  it prompted me to photograph it and share it on the blog as a little online tribute to my wonderful mother.

DSC_5083

I plan on giving my mom this beautiful orchid and perfume when she visits in June (can you take an orchid on a plane?!) but for those of you that have your mothers close by, you can celebrate this Sunday and receive a stunning complimentary orchid plant of your own with any large spray purchase from the euphoria fragrance collection at Macy’s and Macys.com. Share your gift with #euphoriaformoms.

I seem to really be on a burgundy kick right now. Whether it’s tights, hats, bags or socks even, I love the color and have been incorporating it right and left in my recent outfits. I’ve been dying to pull together all of my favorite wine-colored accessories into one look, and this was the perfect opportunity.

DSC_3324

Brown, like black tights, are a perfect go-to color for everyday wear, and are just as critical to a well-rounded wardrobe. I built this outfit around legwear, and these Super Opaque Tights in rich Espresso and Essential Boot Socks in Deep Burgundy, both from No nonsense, helped me stay cozy in my classic denim cut-offs. You can’t beat this great boot sock, especially when they’re so versatile and the perfect thickness; not too thick or too thin, but just right to wear with an ankle bootie. Paired with a cream sweater and camel coat, this outfit is perfect for me who’s always on the go.

southern charm post  Happy Monday! Did everyone who lives on the east coast survive the freezing weather this weekend? I spent most of Saturday cuddled up on the couch, watching movies and eating pizza with my best friend from college who was here visiting from Seattle. Because, when it’s 18 degrees outside, I find it more relaxing to browse the web looking at outfits I can wear in 70-degree weather and planning mini trips to warmer climates, instead of venturing outside and freezing my face off.
Luckily, I’m getting a little reprieve from this cold snap and heading to New Orleans in just over two weeks. (I will be hosting a fun styling workshop while I’m down there but more on that later!) Whenever I head to the south I find that my style steers away from anything black and edgy, and instead I’m drawn to more girly, feminine pieces in pastels. I think it has to do with the fact that when I’m down in Nola, there are brightly painted houses, remnants of Mardi Gras decorations and amazing architecture everywhere you look. It truly inspires me in a way different than any other town or city I’ve visited.
The south is a charming and special place, and I hope to keep exploring and visiting other towns such as Nashville and Charleston sooner than later, but in the meantime, in lieu of my upcoming trip, I decided to create a few outfits that I could see myself wearing while I’m down in the bayou.
