One of my favorite looks of all time has been pretty well documented on this website: a blazer + jeans.
My signature style has definitely been a gradual evolution, shifting from corporate conference room to work from home. However, the one outfit that has remained constant throughout this aesthetic shift is that simple blazer + jeans. Nothing too fashion forward, nothing too fancy, just a combination that I can reach for knowing that it will always look good, no matter the season or occasion.
As you might have noticed, the off-the-shoulder trend has some serious longevity to it. My first post about the trend was way back in 2015!! You can see it HERE.
Over the past year, I think most women I know have invested in some sort of “off-the-shoulder” style to add to their regular fashion rotation. More recently, you’ve probably seen an abundance of off-the-shoulder knitwear more appropriate for the fall and winter ahead.
(All hail, sweater weather!)
Some trends can be “one + done” — meaning you wear that style one specific way and that’s pretty much it. However, the longer the off-the-shoulder trend is going strong, the more I recognize its fashion possibilities.
Here are 2 fresh ways to style the off-the-shoulder sweater that you might not have considered before — at least, I didn’t!
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.
After moving to Cleveland from NYC, I remember completely overhauling my closet.
Not only was my geography changing, but so was my lifestyle — DRASTICALLY. I went from a corporate bank career to one that was not quite defined (at the time), definitely way more casual, and generally involved spit-up and dirty diapers. Clearly, there was no need for my structured suits and office-formal attire.
So out they went.
Over the past few years, my career is definitely way more defined. My general lifestyle is a good balance of casual days and those all gussied up. Fortunately, those days of spit-up and dirty diapers are long behind me. I’m in a really good place and so is my wardrobe — especially when I have brands like TWO FEATHERS in my life.
I know this post may be contrary to everything you’ve ever known and loved about summer fashion, but you need to know: summer neutrals are where it’s at.
Yes, bright colors and bold patterns are more typical of summer style, but hear me out here. Summer neutrals can become a beautiful way to embrace the heat and take a more understated approach to this season’s fashion. These 5 pieces can also be easily mixed-and-matched into a closet full of brights, as well as with each other.
Just like the palm print of 2016, this summer’s big print trend takes its cue from nature… or rather your local grocery store.
The lemon print trend has found it’s way into everything from home goods, to full cocktail dresses and I’m not complaining. Maybe it’s my love for all things yellow — remember THIS POST? I went out on a limb this morning and treated myself to this LEMON PRINT MATCHING SET. For whatever reason, I loved the whimsy of the lemons and the ease of the silk pajama-inspired cut.
Sometimes, you just gotta go outside your comfort zone, ya know!?
The sun is shining, birds are chirping and it’s finally warm enough to ditch the jackets.
Better yet, it’s time to break out all of those Spring dresses that have been gathering dust in the back of our closet. Even this self-professed NON-girly-girl is excited to trade in my jeans and sweaters for some feminine and flirty frocks.
