Leather Suede Skirt: Patterson J. Kincaid (sold out) ℅ Rue La La via Gift Card, Similar here and here | Navy Gingham Shirt: J.Crew Factory (on sale!) | Leather Fold Over Clutch: Halogen (sold out) similar here | Navy Blue Suede Booties: GC Shoes via DSW (last year) similar herehere | Lipstick: Clinque in Red-Y To Wear

Not feeling blue in this monochrome look! I'm all about shades of blue this fall season and this outfit has definitely been added to my favorites list. The trick to monochrome is to pick one color and choose similar tones throughout your look. Blue is such an easy color to try as there are so many shades to choose from, which all happen to go amazingly well with one another! The navy blue gingham top contrasts really well against the cobalt blue skirt making it look crisp and clean, while the matching cobalt blue clutch and navy suede booties were the finishes to touches to complete this monochrome ensemble. 

Thanks for visiting!

Hello loves!! I hope you all had a great weekend! We welcomed fall this past weekend by decorating the house and visiting the pumpkin patch with the kids. We even got to have our first bonfire of the season which just completed the entire weekend. I just love cool fall nights!

This season, I'm really into mixing navy and black. While mixing the two colors is a definite no-no to some, I can't help but love them together. The colors together feel so sophisticated and just look super chic. It's definitely a "rule" you ought to break!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Style and Comfort

Sweatshirt Dress: Old Navy | Fedora: Target (last year) love this hat here | Wine colored Booties: Tommy Hilfiger (old) similar style and color here | Purse: J.Crew - Very similar here

This is one of those outfits that features both style and comfort! This sweatshirt dress is one of those pieces that you literally want to wear all day because it's just so comfortable. It looks adorable with a pair of booties for a more dressed up style but looks equally great with a pair of Converses or flats for a weekend casual look. I also can not obsess enough over my wine colored accessories for this fall season, the color is such great alternative to wearing black!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Striped Blouse: Express (sold out) similar here, love this long sleeve version here (on sale with code "shopforfall") | Leather Shorts: Tildon | Studded Heels: BCBG

Leather, studs and stripes all in one outfit? Yes, please! I love an all black outfit with splashes of gold. It's just screams chic and sophisticated. I've worn these leather shorts on the blog about a month ago, (last seen here) and they are definitely one of my most favorite recent purchases. No doubt, I'll be wearing them again with some tights once the weather cools down a bit more. 

Now, lets talk shoes! If you haven't seen my Instagram, I posted these heels a few days ago while I was out shopping. I had to do a double take because they look almost exactly like the ever so popular Valentino Rockstuds but wayyy less. I'm talking about $925 dollars less! So you better believe it, I grabbed my size like it was no ones business and ran to the check out line. I do own a pair of the Valentino Rockstud's and I do have to say that these lookalikes are extremely close to the real thing, in terms of comfort and style. Highly recommend, your feet will surely thank you!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend!

I am definitely no stranger to the overall trend that has swept the fashion world the last few months. I basically lived in my shortalls all summer long, so it was only necessary to find a pair that would equally fulfill my overall obsession in the colder months. My search ended when I was shopping at Nordstrom last week and spotted my new favorite pair in their junior department. I love the lighter wash and the subtle distressing throughout. I find them to be incredibly chic when paired with heels but they also look pretty amazing when paired with some converses for a more casual weekend ensemble. 

Have you tried the overall trend yet? If so what are your thoughts?

Quilted Crop Top: Xhileration (n/a online, check your local store) | Quilted Skater Skirt: Xhileration | Leather Wrap Heels: Pixie Market (limited sizes left) or very similar here 


Can never go wrong with a matching two piece set! On one of my many weekly trips to Target, (yea, I visit this store way more then I should). I spotted this quilted crop top and matching skater skirt set. I immediately headed to the dressing room to try it on and fell in love. The skater skirt sits just high enough on the waist leaving only a slither of skin visible when worn with the matching crop top, ensuring a chic but tasteful look. Total price of outfit? $34.98! Simply can not beat it!

Thanks for reading!

White button down blouse: H&M (old) similar here | Leather mini skirt: ASOS | Black fringe booties: Koolaburra | Black leather clutch: J.Crew (old) adore this one here

I just love the simplicity of a black and white outfit. Chic and sophisticated at it's finest! I purchased this leather mini skirt last year and although I don't get that much use out of it, it's a great little addition to have in your closet for those days when you want to feel a bit sexy and perhaps a little bad ass! I don't know what it is about leather but I can't get enough, so expect to see a lot of leather pieces this season! I also can't get enough of these suede fringe booties from Koolaburra. With fringe currently being at the top of the trends list, these booties are totally killing it! I always talk about accessorizing your outfits with a killer pair of shoes and these will definitely make some heads turn! 

As always, thank you so much for stopping by!!

Have a great day!
