top it off

For once we had a very cold Christmas, and I loved it! Normally our weather is all over the map, but this year we had a traditional chilly Christmas. These past few days I have been reaching for my hats when going outside {which rarely happens around here}, but when my head is warm, the rest of me is as well. I only have two winter hats I switch between and if this colder weather sticks around I may have to add one or two more to the collection.

for the fashionista

I can’t help but start gathering ideas for Christmas gifts, and one of my favorites to give {and receive} has to be books. I love a good coffee table book and it’s a great gift for the person who has everything. These fashion focused books are perfect for the fashionista in your life. Not to mention, they are all on Gilt, and the prices happen to be just right.

camo, not just for hunting

Being from South Louisiana, when I first started noticing camo on the racks at my favorite retailers I felt very hesitant to make a purchase {I see camo worn for hunting purposes way to often down here}. One of my girlfriends recently wore it perfectly and since then I can’t get my mind off of the idea. Once the winter months are upon us, I look forward to a little camo and lots of layers. The love the style of the three sweaters below, and perfect for every price range.

fab find

I posted these new jeans on instagram last week, and after wearing them, I have to share this fab find. Lately my jeans and I have not gotten along, too tight, too big, too dark, too light, I can’t seem to find anything that works within my current selection. I scooped this pair up from Old Navy, mainly because they actually fit.  And after wearing them, I think I may have to snag a few more pairs. The denim is super soft, they are easy to wear and the perfect length for booties. Best part they are on sale for $19 right now!

reaching for…

On a recent trip to St. Louis I made a pit spot at H&M {I can’t resist} and picked up several casual sweaters and sweatshirts {keeping on theme with my last post}. I can’t wait to wear them throughout the cooler months, perfect to dress up with a pair of jeans and heels, or to throw on over a casual dress. I have my eye on several more sweaters to scoop up when they open here in New Orleans!  After many years of waiting, the doors open on Oct. 31! In the meantime, here are my H&M online picks for comfy and casual.

styling perfection

Veronica Beard is a designer whose collections I look forward to every season. I absolutely love her pieces and the looks she creates. The price points are out of my range, but the styling is perfect for inspiration. These images from her fall collection have me inspired and craving much cooler weather!

must have

My olive military vest is in full rotation. It’s the perfect transition piece, light enough to add layers, but not warmth, and lays nicely over dresses, button downs and blouses. Once it gets a little cooler, it will be perfect for over sweaters as well. If you don’t have one, you should get one, I think you will be surprised at how much you wear it.

something missing

A piece that remains missing from my closet is a classic trench. I love the look, but have never gotten around to purchasing one, and the weather here doesn’t call for this type of piece too often. The fall looks for Zara are amazing and this trench is calling my name. I love the shape and the details, and the fact it looks, oh so similar, to a fancy Burberry one, that I’ve loved forever.
