Taxi Cab Impressions


Remember this Kipling event I was telling you about last week?  Well, we spent some time in the big apple this weekend and had a blast playing with all the newest arrivals while nibbling on customized cookies and getting (temporary) tattoos.  I did my best taxi cab impression for the occasion in my yellow and black ensemble, unintentionally of course, but as soon as we got into New York I realized the resemblance and had to laugh.  If you couldn’t make it out to the event this past weekend, there’s still a chance to grab some great gifts and save some cash while you’re at it.  Kipling is offering a special coupon code, HOLIDAYS30, for all of you to save $30 off your online purchase of $150 or more, so enjoy and happy shopping!

Warmed Up


The weather is a bit unpredictable for this time of year, but believe me I’m not complaining.  I will happily take advantage of bare legs and lightweight sweaters paired over flowy midi dresses any day, and the higher temperatures while I can get them.

Long-Sleeved Maxi


I’ve recently decided that I really need more long-sleeved maxi dresses in my closet.  The possibilities for styling them are just so easy and fun, working perfectly alone, layered with cropped sweaters, little jackets, or cozy cardigans.  With flat booties, it’s the ideal breezy piece for a dressed up, casual outfit.

Blush Blouse


Last weekend I did a major closet overhaul, packing away summer pieces and reorganizing everything else.  I decided to leave this blouse out, realizing how perfectly it worked tucked in with a little faux leather skirt.  Plus I’m loving autumn pastels and this soft shade is just right.  Sometimes the best part of a closet cleanup is finding new ways to wear old pieces.

Prim Edge


Full skirts, t-strap heels, and button down tops are key pieces in a ladylike wardrobe.  Illusion hemlines and chunky neon beanies on the other hand bring along just a little bit of edge; just enough to keep a look from being too prim and proper.
