I always have loved getting dressed up – even when there’s no real reason for it. Lately though I cannot get enough of mixing up my usual girly/sparkly/dress up-loving taste with a more masculine-inspired piece or 2. Dressy sequins + casual chambray + the plain and simple but oh-so-comfortable smoking slippers are my perfect combo to satisfy this kick. There’s no reason you can’t be sparkly and comfy, right?

Now that I’m fully into fall mode, I’m ready to start sprinkling my closet with a few new goodies. Oversized cozy sweaters, a jewel-toned new everyday purse, and some just-right leather leggings are all on my lust list right now. What are you adding to your closet this season?

so long sweet summer

I don’t really pay much attention to the official change in seasons – I go by what I’m wearing, so really, by the weather. As I slipped on my fur vest last week for the first time since last winter, it hit me that summer had truly slipped away. While summers don’t hold the same kind of magic as they do when you’re a kid and have 3 glorious months of freedom, I can truly say I took full advantage of this summers long sunny days and packed in as much fun as a working girl could. North Carolina to North Dakota, LA to NYC, Colorado to Florida, and a few fun lake and Minneapolis weekends…I’m almost ready to hibernate for awhile in my {faux} fur all winter long.

I broke out the leggings this weekend and hardly took them off. They kept me comfy, cozy, and warm as the temps finally took a big dip. All of my boots, scarves, and fur vests are inching their way to the ends of my closet {where my most commonly worn items end up}, and I can’t wait to wear all 3 nonstop all season long.
