Here’s The 4 Piece Fall Outfit You NEED

4-piece-fall-outfit-the-hearts-delight-3

With our big move right around the corner, I’ve started to consider what clothes will be coming with me into interim housing while the renovations are in full swing.

Always a minimalist at heart, I want to ensure that I have all of the essentials necessary to get me through the fall. The fewer pieces, the better. This led me to start categorizing my wardrobe and pulling my absolute favorites from the top of the lists. What I realized, is that there are truly only 4 basics necessary to create my absolute, favorite fall outfit: cozy sweater, fitted pants/jeans, mid /low-heel boots and a neutral coat.

Sounds like a no brainer, huh?!

Fall’s transitional weather often calls for a little creativity in the wardrobe department.

With this season’s collection of fall’s best cardigans you’ll never overlook the classic knitwear piece again!

In The Mood: Fall 2017 Mood Board

Fall-17-mood-board-yulia-chinato-155237

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a pretty visual person.

I need to see it, write it or document it, or it didn’t happen.

Thank goodness for sites like Pinterest and Instagram and most importantly, the handy notes feature of my iPhone to keep my thoughts organized. If I’m going “old school,” a mood board is my favorite method to keep my ideas and inspirations in check. Whether I’m pulling an editorial from my favorite magazine, or a quote that simply speaks to me, I like to keep all of these “tidbits” filed together. Over time, I’ll start to see patterns forming and a color story emerging. Moods and emotions become visualized and from this new intel comes a creative springboard from which to draw from as I write, shop and style.

I thought I’d share some of my favorite images and the looks they inspired for this Fall 2017 season ahead.

Perhaps you’ll be inspired, too.

I Dare You: Striped Pants

Sometimes it’s nice to dip our toes outside of our comfort zones.

Whether that’s learning a new skill, trying a new food or flavor, or even testing out a new style of fashion — taking a risk is never a bad thing. Historically, stripes have been unfairly generalized as unflattering, ESPECIALLY when worn on a woman’s bottom.

Well, we’ve come a long way, baby.

Just take a look at these striped pants finds! From wide and bold, to skinny and subtle, these are the pants you’ll be seeing a lot of this season.

Transitional White

Lately, Cleveland has been giving me all of the Fall feels.

Between school starting back up, the cooler temperatures (hello, 60’s!) and even the first hint of leaves dropping, fall is definitely in the air. However, I’m not so willing to give up my summer just yet! Labor Day weekend is still a few days away and as they say, “It’s not over until the fat lady (drinking a pumpkin spice latte) sings!”

Lady In Red

If you had a chance to read YESTERDAY’S POST, you might have noticed a bold color creeping into the Fall Trend scene: RED.

As flattering and complimentary as the color red can be, many folks tend to shy away from the bright hue. Red leaves many of us uncertain about how to incorporate it into our wardrobes, or even questioning if the color works with our skin-tones/complexions at all.

Essentially, we opt out before we even give red its fair shot.

I thought I would shed a little light on red and offer up some fun style ideas on how to wear the shade of the season. You know, since we’re good friends and all…

Buy, Keep, Store: Fall 2017 Edition

Buy Keep Store Fall 2017Quick reader poll: Do any of you still read glossy magazines in hard copy?

One of my favorite regular magazine features is The In Out List in my monthly Harper’s Bazaar. While most of my fashion reading is done online (and has been for quite some time), this regular feature is one of the few things I actually get excited to see when my mail arrives.

In that vain, I thought I’d put together my own interpretation of The In Out List called, “Buy, Keep, Store” to get you guys as excited as I am for the upcoming fashion season. Hell, maybe it will even get you motivated to clean out your closet, too!

Slip Dress

(Editor’s Note: I was recently digging through my THD Archives for some late summer/fall fashion inspiration when I came across a post from February 2016.

While fashion can be overwhelmingly trend driven, this post proves that good style is here is to stay. As cool as the slip dress was almost 2 years ago, it’s still just as fashionable today. Different season, hell, different year but still 100% on point.)

How To Style Shorts For Fall

Summer may be on its last legs, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to hide yours away!

Shorts are a fantastic style tool to help you navigate that tricky transitional weather. You know, when it’s way too warm to wear pants and you’re not quite in the mood to go full-on dress or skirt. The key to wearing shorts year-round lies in their fabrication. When crafted from the right fabrics and styled appropriately (think tights, boots, sweaters, etc.), shorts can be an incredibly chic addition to your fall wardrobe.
