Put your label on this look:



Yesterday was rainy and dreary, which already is the type of day that makes taking pictures for the site a little less fun, but add in a killer migraine and stepping in front of the camera to document whatever outfit I managed to put together while my head felt like it was in a vice just wasn’t an option.  Luckily, we’d snapped this look last Friday, and while I’m not normally a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal, when there’s stripes and cuffed denim with just the right amount of deconstruction, it’s enough to make a girl feel ever so slightly Parisian, by way of Philadelphia.

Sweet and Sporty


I love pairing sweet, feminine pieces with sportier ones.  Basic sweatshirts work just fine with a lady-like lace skirt, but when you add a little embellishment it ups the elegance ante, even when the whole things combined with sneakers so you can survive a full day of running around.

Sneaker Shift


A chunky cable knit sweater, a simple shift dress, and — sneakers.  It’s crazy to me that I used to avoid athletic-style footwear like the plague, especially now that I know they come in the cutest assortment of fall-friendly colors.  Some days getting dressed up is really all about dressing comfortably.

Feeling Fall


This weekend felt truly fall with the crisp and breezy weather.  I baked (a lot of) homemade apple pie, we walked to dinner at one of our new favorite local restaurants, and cozied up under blankets to watch scary Halloween-themed movies.  And I stayed bundled up in this sweater all weekend long.  There’s a certain victory in finding a great sweater you can’t help but always reach for.

Glamour Knits


A little bit of sparkle mixed with a marled knit is a surefire way to feel cozy and glamorous simultaneously.  And who doesn’t want to round out the week with a little dose of glamour?
