Emerald

I am pretty much a creature of habit when it comes to the color palettes that dominate my wardrobe.  I always seem to gravitate towards my comfort zone of hues, which is why the deep emerald green of this top was something I could not resist.

I have always had a slight fear of green, considering I do not own a single item in any shade.  With Fall looming and an upcoming trip planned to the States, I took the plunge……and was pleasantly surprised.  Not only is the color memorizing, but the drape detailing is fantastic!  Bring on the pumpkin pie, crisp air and falling leaves.

Layers

With the seasons changing, the weather can quite literally be sweltering one minute and chilly the next, which is why layering is a must for me.  Other than being practical (something I’m not usually referred to as), adding layers creates texture and complexity and can make an outfit a bit more interesting.

I am a loyal Current/Elliott devotee when it comes to their amazingly comfortable jeans.  The brands street chic vibe is also seen throughout their cozy sweatshirts and effortless tees.  Since ripping through the packaging (like a 5 yr old on Christmas morning), to reveal the cool, gray leopard print, I have worn this top with everything.  Cheesy I know, but the “cool” factor is undeniable when wearing anything Current/Elliott.

Anorak

For rainy days, cooler afternoons or a walk along the beach, the anorak is my go to jacket.  It’s literally the most versatile piece in my closet when it comes to outerwear.  One of my favorite inspirations is the many ways Olivia Palermo tootles around town in her army green version of this piece.  For a more polished look, I love adding a colorful or military inspired belt to cinch the waist of this laid back jacket.

Lady like

The pencil skirt is one of those key pieces that is always in fashion and seems to re-invent itself each season.  A fabulous print can be an amazing statement or even a bold color can instantly update this basic.  I love the soft peach and subtle peplum of this skirt.  The animal accessories update this lady like look and give it and edgy twist.
