Hey y’all! I hope you’re all having a fantastic week. I’ve been fighting a cold for the past few days however it’s not stopping me from getting today’s post up! Today’s look is easy breezy. You’ve seen my love for the color camel over the past months but it’s a color I can’t seem to get enough of. It’s a really classic hue that flatters every skin tone and goes well with practically every color. Don’t be scared to try it, I promise you’ll love it just as much!

So it’s after Labor Day and I’m totally wearing white. But guess what…I love white and will never let old “fashion rules” stop me from wearing what I want. My blog isn’t about what you should wear and I’m not here to teach you or anyone the rules of fashion because the way we dress is how we feel. Some days I’m feeling bright and happy so I gravitate toward black and a neutral, some days I’m feeling girly so I lean toward pastels or any shade of pink, and when I’m feeling strong and sexy, I throw on something red. Whatever you feel, we subconsciously decide what we want to wear. We gravitate toward to styles and hues that make us feel a certain way. This blush coat from Daily Look has been my “romantic” mood. Not that I’m doing anything remotely romantic but I’m definitely feeling the Holiday spirit and to me that means love. Loving my friends and family, and most importantly, myself.
Romance is on my mind since the holidays just bring out the mushy parts in me, but I make my own romance by wearing it. Anyhow, I’ll stop rambling. Enjoy the post!

I haven’t worn a dress in quite a while, and to be honest, this is actually a vest. I’ve been all about casual cool vibes lately but instead of wearing this oversized vest as a…vest, I threw on a belt and wore it as a dress. I also threw on my NARS “Cruella” lip crayon which is the perfect red! It’s bold, rich and flatters every skin tone. Red is always a fun color to wear, it definitely makes me feel like I don’t have to accessorize too much. Kiss kiss bang bang!
Gray, grey…however you spell it shouldn’t matter, just wear it! Gray is a color that is timeless, and with it being “shades of gray” being one of the season’s hottest trends, today’s post is just that. I layered a bunch of different gray tones to create a really unique look. Fun and edgy jackets are always in style and with this years Motorcycle trend coming in full force, this gray motorcycle jacket is the perfect Fall/Winter staple. Below I’ll share some of my favorites after the “shop the post” section :).
Camel is one of my favorite colors to wear. Whether it’s a jacket, a shirt, pants or a skirt, it’s a color that’s classic that transitions into every season seamlessly. I paired this midi skirt with a white tank and a leather jacket for a daytime/nighttime look. Swap out the shoes for a more basic heel and this can be worn in the daytime to brunch. The leather jacket is one of my closet staples, I wear something leather with almost everything.
Fun Fact about me: All my hair real, no extensions!
Today’s look is basically what I wear to work everyday (aside from blogging I’m doing my internship as a Marriage & Family Therapist Intern) so slacks/skinny pants, a blouse and a blazer/vest is my go-to look. This sweater cardigan is one of my favorites. It’s easy to throw on either a professional outfit like this, or a fun nighttime look. Black and white are two colors I absolutely can’t get enough of, but the beauty of it is that you can always add a pop a color to it. Try throwing on a red pump to give this look a little pop! Unfortunately, I cannot…I try to keep my professional looks very minimal so my client’s don’t get too interested into what I’m wearing or turn the conversation around to fashion.

Unfortunately for some (me) and fortunate for others (probably everyone else living here), Fall weather seems to be non-existent still. With the weather still being in the 80’s it really still feels like Summer. Personally, it’s not stopping me from breaking out my light Fall clothes. Today’s post is just that…light Fall wear for those of us not able to layer and wear the season’s trends with comfort and ease. I know I sound crazy for complaining, but I’m a winter baby. Cold weather, fireplaces and layering are some of my favorite things.
