Styling the Rosette Trend

What’s the latest trend you got on board with? For me, I’ve been loving the rosette trend – it’s feminine, bold and reminiscent of the 90s. I wore my off-the-shoulder rosette top here with wide leg black pants to mix a feminine top with a more structured bottom. Floral appliqués have been adorning pieces ranging […]

currently wearing oversized cardigan for fall outfit

Currently Wearing: An Easy Fall Look

An oversized cardigan in the fall isn’t exactly groundbreaking but I will say, it’s not that easy to find a really good one that will last for seasons to come. There are two things I love about this outfit – 1. how easy it is to layer and un-layer depending on the weather, and 2. it’s a minimal but casual-chic outfit – one that I tend to gravitate towards the most.

What to Wear When You Don’t Know What to Wear

This post has been simmering for a while. I wanted to create a winter capsule wardrobe that you could turn to when you don’t know what to wear. Whenever this happens in the morning, I turn to black yoga pants and a hoodie with a coat on top. I love yoga pants but it’s nice to have options so I rounded up some of my favorite pieces that I wear most often.
