Olive



One of my favorite colors to wear is olive green. Some people can't stand the color, but I find it to be subtly beautiful. I think it is such a great neutral, and especially ideal for Fall. This drapey olive dress by S.W.F. Boutique is so perfect as we transition from summer to fall. It's length offers slight warmth, and the style looks amazing when paired with a fringey suede Ralph Lauren belt and western-style hat (although I generally think most things pair well with a western-style hat ;) ). I also look forward to wearing it even into winter, perhaps with some thigh high boots and a cozy over-sized coat to keep warm. I highly recommend checking out S.W.F. for their great selection of simple styles of dresses, tops, and pants with cool necklines and silhouettes that are so easily styled with everything.

The First of Fall





Last of the Summer Days...

And here are the final looks from the summer style archives. I have mixed emotions about this, as I'm sure most people do, since while I am sad to bid farewell to the days of silk tanks and breezy dresses, we also have oversized scarves and fuzzy coats to look forward to. I must say, am definitely excited for the upcoming season of chunky knits and layering.
Enjoy!

Monochromatic Summer Looks

As I was going through my photos on my computer, I came across some from the archives of summer that I never posted. There was a strong monochromatic theme throughout, so I thought I would go ahead and throw them on the blog before Fall weather fully sets in and we officially make the transition from crop tops to coats. I have a feeling we still have a few good days of summer dressing left of the season, so here are some muted outfits to serve as some warm weather style inspiration while we still have it!

Eden Philippa Jewelry

A little Q&A with super cool jewelry designer Eden Philippa:


Q- How did you get started designing jewelry?
 A- I did a two year goldsmithing program - after the second year I was in love and  completely fascinated! I’ve never once felt like I’ve picked the wrong path.
 

Q- Where do you get your design inspiration?
A-  I’m somewhat utilitarian when I’m designing.  I want my pieces to be pretty, but at the same time comfortable, easy-to-wear, everyday accessories. 

Q- How did you develop your brand identity is such a large market?
A-  It’s a very long process and doesn’t happen overnight.  All the people I admire in the industry and brands that I love are much older and have been doing it for much longer.  It’s really just about determination and being creative in an over-saturated market.    

Q- Who would your dream girl to wear your jewelry be?
A-  A girl who appreciates jewellery that is made by hand and not just a ‘fast fashion’ accessory quick fix.
 

Q- How would you like to see your company evolve in the future?
A- It would be nice to be recognized for my style - a girl can dream, right? I’d also really love to be able to do a bridal line and incorporate more gemstones into the pieces.   
 

Q- If you weren't designing jewelry, what do you imagine your career would be?
A- Oh god, all I know is that it would be a sad existence.

Refinery29 x TJ Maxx







A few months ago Refinery29 contacted us to see if I wanted to come into their NYC office and use pieces supplied by TJ Maxx to help style this shoot based on different scenarios. Refinery29 stylist Willow Lindley and I had so much fun finding some great hidden gems at their stores, including pieces by Mother Denim, Halston, Marc Jacobs, and Torn by Ronny Kobo.
Now they are having a contest to win a $2,500 shopping spree to TJ Maxx- go enter!

Powder Blue







One of my favorite things right now is anything off-the-shoulder. In this case, it makes this otherwise classic blue button down a little more dressed up and unexpected. I kept things casual with faded black denim and sandals, and my trusty little Phillip Lim pouch.

Bullwhip


  
 










I was so excited about the arrival of my Stone Cold Fox sale score- the bullwhip romper. I have worn it multiple times since receiving it in the mail, and finally was able to shoot this look in it on my way to wine night with the girls last weekend. It is such a perfect summer staple, and so easy to just throw on and go! I can dress it up or down, for night or day, and even plan on wearing it well into fall with jackets, socks, and booties.
