Sixteen Staples for your Summer Wardrobe

As summer un-officially begins this weekend, it’s perfect timing to share with you my summer essentials. These are items I own or am eyeing to buy soon. I love to catch a good sale, and several of these items are already on sale. I suspect more items will go on sale in connection to the holiday weekend. So keep your eye out for some good deals!

The sixteen items below are a mix of current trends we are seeing in the fashion world and classic clothes that will be essential for many summers to come. Take a look and let me know what you think!

You can’t go wrong this summer with floral tops and flowy skirts. Personally, I like to pair an edgier studded sandal with feminine clothes. It creates a unique contrast. Eyelet, off-the-shoulder tops, stripes and embroidery are also major trends for this year.

Do you have similar items in your wardrobe for this summer? Jean jackets and maxi dresses are a couple of my favorite summer staples. I also LOVE Target’s sandal selection for this summer. There are some great options if you haven’t checked it out yet.

Of course there’s one category for your summer wardrobe that’s missing from this list and that is swimwear. I’m working on a roundup for all the things you need for the pool or beah, so stay tuned.

Cheers!

8 Staples from J.Crew for your Work Wear

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably discovered that a lot of my work clothes are from J.Crew. This brand and the J.Crew factory store have great staples for work, and the quality of their clothes continually meets my expectations.

There are certain J.Crew staples I own that are classic and available year after year. So, I thought I’d share those favorites and a few recent J.Crew outfits with you.

Merino Wool Cardigan Sweater, $90

Chambray Shirt, $78

Gemma Flats, $108

Martie Pant in bi-stretch cotton & bi-stretch wool, $90 & $120

No. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge wool, $120

Boy Shirt in Crinkle Gingham, $60

Striped Boatneck T-Shirt, $35

Cotton Jackie Shell, $48

Each year there are some updates to these clothes and trendy colors are added, but its no wonder why these pieces are continually available. These J.Crew staples are perfect for creating a classic and simple wardrobe for work days and outside of work.

Of course many of these items can also be paired together to create a several outfits.  The pants and skirt can be paired with each top and the sweaters and tops can be layered to create more interest to your outfit.

Do you have any favorite J.Crew staples in your wardrobe? I’d love to hear all about them.

Cheers!

Fashion Favorite: All Things Suede

Hello friends, it’s been a while!

I’m back in DC after a wonderful week in Jamaica. We luckily missed Hurricane Matthew’s wrath and got plenty of sun. I’ll share a recap of that trip later this week because all I can think about today is the lovely fall weather we are having and my favorite, fall fashion trend – suede!

Suede is definitely a popular trend this season, and all things suede have caught my eye. There are some really fun pieces and accessories out there (some below are even on sale!). What I like most about suede is the texture it adds to an outfit.

If this is a trend you’d like to indulge in, I’d suggest starting with an accessory like a crossbody bag or booties. These will be easy to pair with existing outfits. If you are feeling more daring or want to invest in something different, I’d try a suede skirt or blouse.

Here are some of my favorite fall fashion finds for this season:

Rag & Bone Harrow BootRebecca Minkoff Tassel Clutch BagSteve Madden Lace-Up FlatMoon River Lace-Up Shift Dress

Asos Mini SkirtASTR Faux Suede Moto Jacket

Modcloth Suede GlovesElizabeth and James Crossbody BagModcloth Suede BootieJune & Hudson Midi Dress

Most of these items are faux suede, which is a good way to keep your wardrobe environmentally friendly! The Asos mini skirt, suede dresses and Modcloth booties are great deals as well. Hopefully these fashion finds inspire you to join in this fun trend.

Now here’s to the work week zooming by. Cheers!!
