THE SHIRT DRESS

Hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break with tons of food, family, and friends! Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite Holidays because 1) calories don't count (and if someone says they do, tell them to f off) and 2) it gathers your loved ones together which is hard to do in todays busy world. This year, I'm especially thankful not only for the continued love and support but because I became an aunt to the cutest little boy named Bret. My heart is full

A shirt dress is easily the most comfortable piece of clothing. I can't even count the amount of button-downs I own because I continue to oversaturate my closet. As much as I love putting together different outfits, I can also be lazy... so this is deff my go-to for an easy+chic outfit of the day. What will shock you guys is that this whole look (minus the Gap trench coat) is all from Beacons Closet. For those of you not familiar, Beacons Closet is a thrift shop with tons of one of a kind affordable vintage pieces. You have to check it out if you haven't already.

Thick belts are key to enhancing any look! Throw it over a shirt + dress for some edge.

These are, by far, my FAVORITE boots in my closet.

THE OFF THE SHOULDER BUTTON DOWN

Back again and just in time for New York Fashion Week! Who's as excited and exhausted as I am!? Its been a busy but overall fun week. So far, my favorite shows have been Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Jonathan Simhkhai, Tibi, Ulla Johnson, Alexander Wang, and Public School. I'm absolutely obsessed with their SS18 Collection and loving each trend I'm seeing on the runway.

Luckily, we've been having some amazing weather! Its not Fall just yet - but it pretty much feels like it. I've already whipped out my booties and layering pieces. With the transition of seasons, one can really have fun with their wardrobe. I personally love this time of year because I can put on shorts or a skirt with a pair of booties and a nice button down or thin long sleeve blouse. You can make most of what's hanging in your closet and experiment a bit. For this shoot, I really wanted to bring out my leather Joie shorts that have literally been buried in my closet. Working at Neiman Marcus in college was very dangerous. Half of my paychecks went to their Last Call sales. A trend which has been around for a bit that i've been into lately is the off-the-shoulder button down look. It's a different way to style your typical stripe or plain button down and requires very little effort. Pair it with almost any bottom and you're guaranteed to turn heads. More below on this effortless look!
