Fall Transition Pieces with Halsbrook.

In anticipation of the first day of fall tomorrow, I worked with one of my favorite retailers, , to bring you some fall looks that work for this in-between weather we’ve been having in the Northeast!

This top I love — and wore it with leather pants on our anniversary to dinner as well. I adore that you can wear a normal bra with it and yet show a little off the shoulder sass.  I sized up to a medium for a slightly less fitted silhouette. This necklace is now a staple in my rotation too, as you can double it up for a short look (see next look) or leave it long.

This green coat is super soft and a light layer to keep you warm.  Plus I feel like it has a little Meghan Markle vibe to it.  This skirt is awesome, the button detail is traditional and yet unexpected and the cut is very flattering.

I’d wear this look with jeans for a dressed down version too… or leather leggings, as mentioned before. A great example of pieces that can work for the weekend or the office.

A high waisted skirt with a fitted tee is a great way to show off your figure without worrying about figure flaws. It accentuates your best assets!

Here are some other items from Halsbrook I’m loving for this time of year– from some killer plaid pants to the perfect suede clutch.

Fashion Friday: Fashion Week Roundup

I went through a zillion Fashion Week shows for Spring 2019 and edited it down to a few big, basic trends I noticed.  The most diffuse trend- hideousness. I have never seen a fashion week where so many of the designers I normally love showed absolutely nothing I would ever wear.  It makes me so sad!  Why can’t pretty and flattering be popular?

The most noticeable trend was the number of designers showing bright yellow– many of them neon highlighter yellow.  Like, eyeball searing yellow.  I always wonder how this memo gets around to every fashion house (I assume trend forecasters) but it’s funny how such a unique color shows up on almost every single runway. There were some softer versions of yellow too– so we now know that yellow is the color of spring 2019- plan accordingly.

Fashion Friday: Back to School Style with Nordstrom

Hey everyone!

Before you head out for the long weekend I know some of you have kids that have started school or are going to be starting school next week, so I partnered with Nordstrom today to share some great finds for back to school for the littles!  Henry starts pre-school September (I can’t believe it) and since he’s growing like a weed, needs all new fall clothes for the most part (okay fine, I also have WAY too much fun buying clothes and shoes for him– it’s way more fun than shopping for myself right now!)   Nordstrom is where I go for a lot of his stuff, especially their great shoe selection (and you can’t beat the easy returns).

FOR BOYS: (I may or may not have bought everything on this list for Henry…. YIKES!)

The Fall Trends I Simply Cannot Get On Board With (and Those I Can)

As a person who came of age in the late 80’s and 90’s, I am having a hilariously good time CRINGING at the recent articles I’ve seen for Fall 2018 trends.  I mean, it’s BEYOND my comprehension that these styles are considered “in” right now. And yes, I can hear myself, I sound like my own mother who probably felt the exact same way when I wore all these items in the actual 90’s. But I mean, wasn’t it bad enough that it was in style once?

ACID WASH DENIM

I mean, just a pair of acid wash high rise jeans is offensive enough. But a whole denim tuxedo situation done in this horrific 80’s material? I simply CAN NOT.
