New leather classic: the sleeveless tank





Hello friends & happy Saturday!  Today I am bringing to the blog a new must-have: the leather tank.  Now, of course the trend lately has been leather skinny jeans & jeggings.  And then the all-time favorite leather wardrobe staple has always been & probably always will be the leather jacket in its various styles.

However, I promise you a leather tank will be a completely worthwhile addition.  It looks so well put together, and is so fun to work with as a stand alone piece in warmer weather with a black skirt, or virtually any color of skinny jeans depending on your mood.  Combine it with a pair of strappy heels & your favorite leather hand bag and your look is complete!  Then in cooler weather, simply toss on a sweater wrap and a pair of boots and you are fully winterized!

Now, you can go for vegan or the real thing depending on your preference & budget.  And below I have linked the leather tank shown above, as well as some other options, and pieces to complete your look, all of the way down to the booties.

This is truly a look you can have fun with that is perfect for both a dinner party and a girl’s night out, and you will look uber chic & appropriately dressed for either.  So enjoy & have a wonderfully relaxing yet productive rest of your weekend! xoxo ♥♥

Shirt dresses, scarves & booties…oh my!

Now, I know blanket scarves are the big thing this fall.  But don’t forget about the ease of an infinity scarf!  Which is why I am bringing you a couple of my favorites in that category.  As well as one of my other favorite things…shirt dresses! Partly because in North Carolina, you usually don’t actually wear winter clothing until January!

Shirt dresses are so perfect for fall because they typically involve a quarter length sleeve, and a overall length that hits you right around the knee.  Which is perfect for keeping you warm & for wearing knee high boots or booties!  Denim shirt dresses are my favorite, but there are many other adorable options out there, that would look amazing with a cute scarf & booties as well.

Below I linked my favorite shirt dresses this fall, as well as my favorite infinite scarves, that are currently available.  See my previous “Best of Booties” post for my favorite booties of the season to pair with this ensemble as well.  Hope you’ll find something you love that works for your style & your figure!

Happy weekend loves…hope you’re making the most of it but enjoying a little r & r too! xo ♥♥

One of the best ways to make your wardrobe fall ready is to find the perfect pair of cozy booties.  With that being said, there are many different style options of varying colors, and heel heights available.  So many, in fact, that it can be incredibly overwhelming & time consuming to sort through them all!   Not to mention the style that flatters you most will vary to a degree based on factors unique to you such as your figure & height.

However, one key recommendation I would make regardless of your body type is that you choose a pair that dip slightly lower in the front.  This will succeed in elongating your legs, rather than cutting them off & making them appear shorter than they actually are.  That combined with a 3-4 inch heel will give you legs for days!

Now, I searched high & low for cute pairs of boots in the perfect shade of gray, that would go with just about any outfit.  This pair of Splendid Addie Ankle Boots from Anthropologie fit the bill.  They are literally the most comfortable boots I own (don’t listen to the reviews on the website!) and simply adorable.  Then when you are looking to dress up a pair of jeans for a night out, or to combine with a cute dress for date night, a sleek pair of black booties are essential.  My favorite pair is the Vince Camuto Corra Boots pictured above from Nordstrom.

Below I linked the booties pictured above with a couple of different color & vendor options with different sizes available, as well as some other cute selections in various shades of tan.

I hope you find the perfect pair!  Have a fabulous week loves!
