Hey guys! So I’m currently in Italy right now (follow along on my Snapchat: mystylepill) but wanted to share these photos I took with Lydia last week, which demonstrate how much accessories can play a part in switching up the feel of an outfit. Click through to see the same tee and shorts but paired with ankle booties and a red lip…
Can you guys believe it’s September 1st today?! Even though we are on our way to cooler weather, this is a bit of a fall forward outfit since it’s still very warm in New York. But I can’t help it you guys! The truth is, I love my overalls and can’t wait to start wearing them again on the regular. I styled this outfit around my new striped top that I bought at Forever 21 and I am kind of obsessed with it because it has a fun 70’s vibe plus it’s a striped shirt, so that’s always a plus in my book…read more >
Happy Wednesday friends! Today’s video is about a few things I picked up from Forever 21 (and a couple things from Aritzia) last week and I thought it would be fun to share with you guys what I found! I also am thinking that I want to create a video showing how I styled these items so let me know in the comments if that is something you would love to see!
I linked to as many pieces I could find online, but unfortunately Forever 21 doesn’t always list everything they have in the stores online. :/
Forever 21 Pieces:
Shorts: I couldn’t find these exact shorts but here is a very similar style
Black/White Striped Top
Brown/Black/White Striped Top: Ugh, I couldn’t find this one either, but here is one other 70s inspired top
Plaid Flannel: I can’t find this exact one, but here is a red, white and blue version that is super cute as well

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!
