fall fashion series: denim

Denim. It is such a closet staple and comes in so many different styles, making the material one of the most versatile in the fashion industry. Whether it is crafted in the form of a a denim skirt, a great pair of jeans, a denim vest, a jean jacket, or a chambray shirt– denim is comfortable, cool, casual, stylish, and easy- all at the same time. The different washes and distresses also add to the versatility of the material, making each piece unique in it’s own way. Below are six images from Pinterest that serve as major denim styling inspiration for us, plus 10 items that we are loving as we think about fall wardrobe planning. P.S.

the perfect white pant.

These white pants instantly caught my eye. They are a statement making trouser and portray a fun, sartorial confidence. I am not the typical girl-who-loves-dresses-kinda-lady. I tend to lean more toward Zara versus Anthro, androgyny versus uber feminine. Dresses are so lovely and necessary, but I enjoy filling my closet with investment staple pieces that can be worn over and over with different tops, different shoes, and different bags. Win win.

On another note, I am a major fan of small businesses. They are a beautiful piece of what makes this sweet career world go round and add such character, ambition, and victory to creating. This look was extra fun to put together because it is filled with lovable small company pieces: Chelsea and Walker pants, the Drifter top, and the Lumillamingus bag.

fall fashion series: cashmere

One of the many things that we love about fall is the cozy-chic feeling you get when wearing something that is made of cashmere. Year after year we are inspired by looks on Pinterest and the options that are available in stores. A cashmere sweater typically comes with a high price tag, but the investment is so worth it since it will be a fall and winter staple for years to come. We love the look of pairing the feminine material with denim and leather, which are actually the next two textures we are covering in this fall fashion series. The combination of cashmere, denim, and leather makes for a cool contrast of soft + pretty with cool + edgy. Below are images via Pinterest that have us inspired to wear cashmere this fall, as well as links to 10 cashmere items that we would love to own. And if you didn’t catch it last week, click here to read our post on suede.

fall fashion series: SUEDE

Today we are kicking off a four part fall fashion series about textures that take over the style world during the fall season. The first material that we are loving on is suede. It’s such a luxe, rich, and versatile material that can elevate a look or help keep things casual. One of my most favorite items in my wardrobe is a Levi’s brown suede jacket that my parents gave to me for Christmas a few years ago. It has continued to be my most treasured fashion item- that piece that I am especially thankful for and causes me to feel all giddy whenever I put it on. I wear it as much as possible during the fall and winter and then dream about it during the spring and summer. It’s one of those things that I put on and feel 100% myself, confident, and stylish in an effortless, easy way. In my book, that is the goal when it comes to clothing purchases and personal style- that is what makes getting dressed and putting outfits together so fun!

The design combination of fringe + suede  (see the top row of the collage) makes for a totally cool, irresistible, bohemian vibe. That vest, jacket, and poncho will all look so great paired with a simple white (or black) tee plus a pair of well-loved jeans. Those three items have a handcrafted, artisanal look that is effortlessly fashionable when paired with denim and a tee. A suede choker + platform sneaks or slip-on mules will be favorite accessories this season and in constant rotation. I always stick to neutrals when it comes to shoes because I can wear them again and again, with so many different looks. 

Be sure to come back next week for when we chat cashmere. xo

wearing all black

wearing all black | lolo magazine | lauren scruggs kennedy

Lo and I are big fans of wearing all black. It’s our go-to option sartorially because it’s stylish, simple, and season-less. From a black trench to black heels, these are items that you’ll constantly be reaching for. Some might say that wearing black is a safe (meaning boring) choice, but we say the opposite- it’s the smart choice. Building a wardrobe around neutral colors (black, grey, cream/white) is brilliant because everything will mix and match. Then you can add in the fun with a few bold, colorful, or printed pieces and accessories. Scroll down to get the links to the items featured above, which are all currently on sale, thanks to the big nordstrom anniversary event. xo
