Because I just know Miranda Priestly would balk at spring's autumnal pattern counterpart, but it's such a staple! 

I can't get enough of plaid & flannel in the fall, especially put together with some leather. Whether it's in skirt or pant form is up to you, but there's something about the leather + plaid combo that screams casual autumnal vibes.

Throwing on a pair of booties gives off a sense of effortlessness to the look, tying everything together. 

I've rounded up some of my favorite flannel looks below!

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR CLOSET WHILE STAYING SANE

Clean Out Your Closet & Stay Sane

Cleaning out your closet is one of those things that needs to be done every once in awhile, but it's a tedious task that you'd rather put off. BUT I've found that the more times I clean it out, the more I've found a little system & rhythm to make it at least semi- enjoyable!


Break It Up
If you just go in blind, you'll end up being super overwhelmed & won't know which way is up. Instead, you should start one chunk at a time.

Take a handful of clothes out, lay them on your bed, & go through the items one by one. & repeat!

Be Tough
Any pieces that are the old 'eeh I haven't worn this in a year but I'll start now!' or 'this came from xx, so I'll keep it even though I'll never wear it' bits need to GO. Be tough with yourself & genuinely ask yourself if you still love it & you will wear it, more than once or twice.

If the answer's no, or there's any sort of hesitation, LET IT GO!

Be A Stylist
Once you've picked what you're keeping, find other items in your closet to pair them with. You'd be surprised at how many different combinations of things you can come up with!

You'll end up coming out of the clean out feeling refreshed, & like you've gotten new clothes to work with.

Obviously this system can be revised to fit your needs, but I've found it works well for me, & I STAY SANE, which is most important, no?

Do you absolutely dread when it comes time to do a clean out, or do you go full-steam ahead? What's your method?

MONDAY STYLE VOLUME 004

Monday, September 18, 2017

monday style 4


It's been a LOOONG hot sec since I've featured a monday style post, & since I was just introduced to the sweatshirt/ long skirt situation via pinterest, I figured now's the perfect time!

But really, how chic is this combo? You can't get any more carrie bradshaw than a good tulle skirt, & paired with a sweatshirt tied at the waist gives it an elongated situation. Popping on a pair of heels puts some eloquence into the look, yes? 

I've been SUPER into the Gucci leather disco bag, but I can't get over the price tag. A bag like the Dorothy Perkins, however, is a sort-of-dupe that still looks pretty & makes the look street-chic. 

I'm thinking I'm going to have to try this out in real life & maybe turn it into a post... 

How about you? Would you rock these pieces together?

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT AUTUMN

Friday, September 15, 2017

Overalls And Bell Sleeves

There's a reason why bloggers everywhere obsess over autumn. It's the start of a new season, a fresh start, & everything feels lighter. Crisper. 

At least, that's what I think. Tell me if I'm wrong? 

I feel like there are at least three key things that make autumn superior, and why I get SO EXCITED for its impending arrival:

 1// The Coziness
To me, there is nothing better than a crisp autumn day, complete with a pumpkin candle, warm blanket, & a good book or tv show. We all need slowness in our life sometimes, and what better way?

2// The Fashion
As much as I love my off the shoulder dresses & sandals, we must admit that autumn dressing is just superior. From booties to knitwear & floppy hats, it's all so gorgeous & fun to put together. (if you fancy a look at some of my current wardrobe picks for the season, click here)

3// The Smells
Specifically, candle smells. Notes of pumpkin, apple, & all the yummy smells we associate with autumn flow through the air & everything feels a bit... warmer. Not to mention the smell of your mom's house on Thanksgiving.....

What are your favorite things about the season?
