Kimawashi: One pant, styled five different ways. I found these JBrand jeans via Rakuten. Rakuten is an amazing shopping website where you can find a ton of cute pieces by your favorite brands and designers. Rakuten is introducing the Japanese term Kimawashi to the US. Kimawashi means wearing the same item in a few different ways. I wanted to show you guys how a fun colored jean can be styled more than once and why certain pairs are worth the investment. Show me how you kimawashi with the hashtag #iamkimawashi – can’t wait to see!

Shirt: Rails (similar, dress version) | Sweater: Zara | Pants: H&M (super old, but similar) | Shoes: Isabel Marant | Bag: Chanel | Sunnies: Raen | Watch: Caravelle New York

I decided to do a post on layering today. We’re in the midst of switching over from semi warm weather to semi cold weather. It’s confusing when some days are said to be in the 50′s and then some days in the 70′s. The worst is when it starts out in the 50′s and turns into the 70′s by lunch time. In this scenario, I almost always throw a light button down on under a sweater. I know that when it gets warmer out I can take it off and still look/feel appropriate. It also creates the opportunity to nix a jacket. Rails has the best button downs to do this with – I suggest going with a light one so that you aren’t dying in both pieces on your way to work. I also like to pair this with a cropped pant rather than a long one. I love ankle length jeans and this is certainly the time to wear them. If you do happen to pair an ankle length pant with a boot, make sure the boot isn’t tight to your leg so that it doesn’t create an unflattering cut off. Everyone always asks me about these faux leather pants. Believe it or not, I bought them at an H&M store for 21 dollars 4 years ago. They are completely destroyed but refuse to let them go. I just ordered the Anine Bing ones, very excited to update my leather situation.



Rehearsal Dinner Video

I’m so excited to share with you guys our Rehearsal dinner video we made with the amazing Unsome Productions. They had the idea of creating a scary love story since Brandon and I got engaged on Halloween and love horror films. I was hesitant about sharing this because it’s super personal and all about me, my husband and family but at this point, it has truly been a pleasure sharing every part of this special time with you guys because majority of you have been with me since the day I started. I love you all and your support especially through this amazing time in my life. Hope you enjoy it!

Boots: Givenchy | Bag: Chanel | Jeans: JBrand (similar) | Shirt: CP Shades, similar | Jacket: Zara (OLD) | Sunnies: Thierry Lasry (Ultimate Spectacle) | Lipstick: Cargo (Sedona)

I am in love with my new suede olive/grey Givenchy boots. I’ve always seen them and loved the idea of a wedge (so comfortable) with the overlay, I just didn’t know if I loved how it would make your leg look with jeans. I wound up trying them on and it was an easy decision. I loved them, I knew I would live in them this Winter so I made the investment. Couldn’t be happier that I did. I think it’s time for me to take a break from shoe shopping though. I’m starting to realize that I don’t know when I’ll find the time to wear all of my shoes.

I paired these boots with jeans that I would wear every single day, it was the best way to show my readers how I would genuinely style them. I love them with blue jeans and my go to top is a cozy worn in long sleeve tee – very into stripes right now. I threw a faux fur white coat over it that I bought so long ago but can’t seem to part with. It’s that kind of piece that if I were to give it away I’d be looking for it weeks after or need it for something specific. I just ordered a bunch of new coats from NastyGal. So affordable and totally worth purchasing. Can’t wait to show you guys which ones I got!

Boots: Christian Louboutin | Leggings: N/A (similar) | Top: Banana Republic | Hat: Topshop (similar) | Coat: H&M | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Bag: Reece Hudson

So, it’s cold out. Everyday has officially called for a jacket (or faux fur in this case). A go to outfit for me on a Fall day is a faux fur coat, skinny jeans, a pair of boots and sometimes a hat (depends on my hair that day).

I was very excited to show off my new knee high boots. I’ve never owned a pair (except for the Stuart Weitzman flat knee high boots, which I love, but more casual). I was playing around on Pinterest the other day and noticed so many cute outfits that had a boot like this, I never thought I’d be able to pull it off so I’ve steered clear until I saw these babies! So chic, so classic and simple. I love how they look with a pair of jeans or leather pants.
