Jumpsuit: Leith (under $100!) | Jacket: BCBG (worn this to death!) | Wedges: Pedro Garcia, get the look for under $100 here! | Necklace: Alexis Bittar; sold out but similar here | Bag: Saint Laurent. similar Saint Laurent option here and a look for less here | Earrings: Argento Vivo | Sunnies: Céline | Belt: Halogen | Bangles: Nordstrom here and here

I have to tell you that I rarely wear wide leg/flare pants or denim, but I see why people love it so much!  This whole jumpsuit seriously felt like pajamas!  I wanted to cinch the waist in to make it more flattering, but you could skip this option if you wanted to.  The blazer makes it more work appropriate, and sans jacket makes it more daytime or going out.  It really is a fun piece and could be dressed up or down!

I wore this outfit when Laura Beverlin and I were interviewed by FOX News on Tuesday.  I have to say that we had SO much fun and it was truly an honor!  One of my dear friends, who I happened to meet at Nordstrom,  Kelly Ring, has wanted to a story on fashion blogging for the last several months.  She is a long time FOX News Anchor and one of the sweetest people I know.  Laura and I met in Hyde Park and did some photos, and then were individually interviewed.  We were definitely nervous!  All went well, and I can’t wait to show you the end result.  She said it will probably air in the next few weeks!

Reasonable, Classic Blazer: 4 Different Outfit Styling Ideas!

topshop, navy blazer, classic, valentino, louis vuitton, leopard belt, celine sunglasses, celine aviators, mirrored aviators

Blazer: Topshop (can also be worn as a dress!) | Denim: Joe’s Jeans | Shorts: Topshop, sold out but similar look here | Top: sold out, but very similar one here | Necklace: Panacea | Heels: Valentino | Bag: Louis Vuitton ‘Pochette Metis’ ; get a similar look here with this $98 one from J.Crew | Sunnies: Céline | Earrings: Argento Vivo | Bangles: Nordstrom here and here | Belt: this one is from last year, but similar option here

Fun Fact: This blazer is actually a dress, but I thought it would be a great layering piece to add into my wardrobe since all of the longer styles are coming back around, and this one won’t break the bank!  It honestly looks and fits like a designer piece.  If you live in a warmer climate, pair it back to shorts!  If you need a little extra coverage, the cropped denim are perfect.  Take it straight to the office paired back to this blouse by Vince Camuto, these pants and this shoe.  Worn as a dress, it would be adorable with OTK boots like these!

How to take cropped jeans into the fall + the BEST cozy lightweight sweater under $60!

Sweater: Leith (super soft and under $60!) | Denim: Rag & Bone | Boots: Marc Fisher | Belt: Steven by Steve Madden | Bracelets: Monica Vinader here and here | Earrings: Argento Vivo | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Necklace: Lana; get the look for less here

 

I love that all of these cropped jeans are in style now!  It makes them perfect for short or taller gals, however, now the question is what shoes to wear with them.  I think they’re so cute when you wear them with ankle booties that come a little higher up on the leg.   As in, you want your booties to hit right where the denim ends or it can hang over just a little.  Another trick is to use some denim from last season and cuff them.  The key to this is making a skinny cuff and not too wide with bulky fabric, etc.  It’s okay if you show a little skin when wearing your jeans this way.

Ok y’all, I’m sorry for the over wearing of this burgundy shade (not sure if that’s even a word ha!), but this is my favorite color to wear in the fall!  Basically any wine color and all of the fall greens.  I just can’t get enough!  Also, all of these cute bomber jackets are giving me so much life.  They can be a fun third piece without looking too stuffy.  This one is super flattering on (not too bulky), and honestly a great price for being genuine suede leather!

Sporty Chic: Metallic, Stripes & Camo

Sweater: Topshop | Skirt: Topshop | Shoes: Shellys London | Brooch: Chanel; some of these would be fun here and here | Sunnies: Céline | Bag: Céline Phantom Luggage | Bracelet: David Yurman | Earrings: Argento Vivo | Rings: Bony Levy here and here, look for less here with BaubleBar

Not only have I been loving this whole sneaker trend, but now that the platform oxfords are back, I am having so much fun with it!  This whole grungy look was around in the 90’s and I loved it so much.  All of these platforms are taking me back!  Even though I wanted the designer version of this shoe badly, I decided to save some money and get the ones by Shelly’s London.  They were a fraction of the cost of the designer ones, so I don’t feel bad at all if they’re not in style for that long.  I mean, sure I’d love to buy designer everything, but these just weren’t practical to me to spend a ton on.  I’ve actually worn them way more than I thought I would.  If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see how I styled them a few different ways.

Last week, my good friend and fellow Tampa fashion blogger, Laura Beverlin and I and our hubs were invited to BarTaco to try out their secret taco.  Pete and I have been there before many times, but didn’t know there was a secret taco.  It was lobster y’all!  As of today, they are coming out with a new secret taco, but in the mean time, they will have the Crispy Avocado Taco as a special.  I can’t wait to go back and try that one!

Top: Free People | Denim: Paige | Flats: Steve Madden | Belt: Hinge | Hat: Hinge | Bag: Céline, similar here & here | Sunnies: Céline | Tank: Hinge

I think this might be one of my most favorite tops that I’ve bought in a while!  There’s just something about lace that makes you feel so feminine.  I love that this one has an edge to it with the open back and bell sleeves.  I wore a tank underneath, but you could also wear a bandeau bra.  For a total 70’s look, you could wear it with high waisted flare jeans like these by Frame!

I have to start off by saying that this outfit is inspiration for fall and for those of you getting these cool snaps now.  Yes, it’s still super hot here!  However, now is the time to buy all of your fall faves because things do sell out.  I have customers all the time that want boots and cute sweaters in January and they are all gone by then.  It’s so hard to think about buying for cool weather, but if you shop ahead, you’ll have some of the cutest pieces to choose from when the cool weather actually hits.  Trust me on this!
