Recently I’ve been drawn to any piece that has interesting texture — and this sweater/jacket combo was right up my alley. From the interesting yarn they used to knit each row with a bit of silver thread here and there to the leather trim around neck and zipper, this piece just called my name. For even more added interest, I paired it with snakeskin flats and a chunky necklace. Texture overload … but I like it.

When in need of some hair help, I wear a hat. When nothing seems to be working accessory-wise, I wear a hat. Hats are my go-to (proof here), especially wider-brim fedoras. Come spring, though, I may be integrating a few more baseball caps (insert collective gasp here) into my regular wardrobe.
How was your weekend? After a spectacular girls’ night on Friday, we went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (pretty good, in my opinion) and topped off the weekend with homemade sweet potato fries. Bring it on, Monday!
When all else fails, I reach for monochromatic colors. Today’s top pick? Wine/oxblood (perfect for fall, don’t you agree?). The trick to making monochrome interesting is texture and pattern, both of which I’ve played up here with my semi-chunky sweater and these paisley-print pants (both of which I found at my local Loft on sale recently). If you had to wear a monochromatic outfit, what color would you choose?
The weekend went by way too quickly (as most weekends seem to do). It included a lot of movies, a Target trip or two and taking advantage of Sephora’s VIB sale (finally get to try this eyeshadow in diamond dog!). Monday calls for an easy, little-thought-required outfit, and for me, that means neutrals, leopard and a hint of gold. Oh, and a few edgy touches (like my motorcycle jeans and gold-hardware boots).

I love a rainy day in October. These days make me want to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a warm cup of tea, coffee or cider — and that’s what happened this weekend. I had a work-filled, low-key weekend due to a huge project, but the cool, cloudy weather made going to a local coffee shop to warm up absolutely necessary.
So when the day turns rainy, I turn to earthy colors and layers. As usual, my chambray blouse is my number-one layering top. Mustard yellow and olive green were meant to be, and some fringe booties and a leopard umbrella are just what is needed to brighten up a gray day.
