Put your label on this look:

Sweet and Unstructured


Events in the fall can be tough to dress for.  It’s not quite cold enough for tights and wool coats, but it’s definitely too cool for open toes and bare arms.  For night’s out that aren’t too formal but require a little extra effort, I’m digging the idea of putting a soft, baby blue dress with a chunky, navy poncho sweater for a monochromatic look that borders between sweet and unstructured.  And mixing in an oxblood, ankle strap shoe adds a little more richness.

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.
