Currently Coveting: Fur Shoes.

Aside from those PUMA by Rihanna slides that have everyone talking, fur shoes are definitely having a moment. Personally, I gravitate away from the athletic version and more towards the night out ones. Safe to say these from Loeffler Randall and Parme Marin are on the top of my wish list!

 

 

 

What do YOU #CARRYLIGHT for?

The Suede Dress.

Thank god fall is on its way! I have a thing for layered monochrome looks – hence my obsession over this combination. Although it may seem easy to get lost in a one-color look, my advice is to mix different textures (suede and fur, for example) to break it up and add some interest.

What to Wear: Hot & Humid.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I spent the last week in Orlando. If you are unfamiliar, even as autumn rolls around, Orlando stays a scorching 90° with high humidity… aka – it’s hot and wet. (Gross.)

So: what does one wear in this type of heat? I’ll admit, it’s difficult to be comfortable, fashion-forward and stay as cool as possible but here are my best suggestions:

Oversized cotton dresses work wonders. They don’t cling and give you some breathing room. Mine (above) is from Forever 21.

Use a backpack… especially if you’re going to be out for a long period of time. MochiThings has awesome leather ones that look chic and also hold a bunch. Win/win.

Bring your sneakers.

Choose fabrics fit for sweat. I brought my Paridaez Sparrow tank. It’s made of lyrca and polyester but has a brushed finish that makes it feel more like cotton. I highly recommend all pieces from the brand for anything in which you want to feel comfortable and dry whether it be walking around Florida or attending your next yoga class.

Phew! Now bring on the cool weather!

The Leather Skirt.

If you were to ask me what one of my most loved items in my closet is, I would probably say my leather mini skirt. I’ve had it for… many… years and it still feels as cool and age appropriate as it did when I first got it. It seems to transition seamlessly between a night out and every day. Recently, I paired it with a simple button down and sneakers for a more casual look.

Currently Coveting: Fall Wishlist.

As I mentioned in this post, fashion is not taking itself too seriously these days… Trends have been all about playfulness and, if you ask me, a serious ode to us 90’s babies and our middle school years: IE furry things, patches and pins on denim, and velvet slips a la Cher (the Clueless one, that is).

Check out these on-trend pieces that I’m coveting for fall:

(Those Minnie pumps, are you KIDDING?!)

So Hot Right Now: Bell Sleeves

Exaggerated silhouettes are all the rage these days. Whether it’s in your sleeves or pant legs, flared is making a come back. (Should have kept those bell-bottoms, am I right?!)

Chalk it up to the fact that playful is in right now. Fashion is certainly not taking itself too seriously… More on that to come.

Meanwhile, shop my favorites for fall:

Summer Culottes.

Culottes have become the glass slipper of my wardrobe… it doesn’t matter which brand, they fit like they were made for me. I paired them with feathers (yes, they’re still in!) and some slides.
