I must admit, I’ve purposely shied away from wearing green hues ever since I dyed my hair bright red. Why? Like most, I try to stay away from color themes that drum up festive thoughts like orange and black, red and green, black and yellow, you get the picture. And while I’ve always had a thing for olive, I put my green envy to bed, favoring my bright red hair instead. 

Now I know what you might be thinking… redheads look great in green. This I know, but I personally think the shade of red + green has to be perfect in order to not look campy. And I’ve found, that when my hair is faded and I’m due for a color refresh, that’s the time when I look best in olive. read more

I’ve always felt fall to be one of the most inspiring seasons for me fashion wise. The gradually declining temperatures give me a chance to play with layers, proportions, and find new ways to wear and re-wear my favorite pieces. Currently, I am living for the proportion play of a tiny crop top over a long sleeve button down.

This silhouette creates a long, lean shape, and looks brilliant over a pair of flared jeans. I also love going monochromatic with the crop top and button down, which creates fluidity and length instead of cutting off your midsection.  read more

Ruffles are taking over this season! And I am loving all of the different iterations of the trend ranging from uber girlie, to architectural, even a bit edgy. I like this soft take on ruffles. By adorning billowy sleeves, ruffles create a beautiful, wave like movement when you walk, and you can’t help feeling glamorous.

I decided to temper the look with my all-time fave pant silhouette: the culotte. Feminine on the top, a bit more masculine on the bottom, punctuated with new patent leather lace up oxfords from my dreams! read more

Giving the good ‘ol chambray a break and opting for new ways to layer denim on denim. I’m really into transitional dressing at the moment because it inspires creativity within our closets, breathing new life and personality into pieces we wore all summer, or are about to wear all fall and winter. For me, fall ushers in a new wave of denim and layering. Raw edge denim is the look of the moment, and I took a frayed denim tank that I happily wore a few months ago and layered it on top of my current fave white button down from Uniqlo. read more
