autumn style

Weekly ‘Inspo…

This week’s inspiration/mood board is all about simple, casual, autumnal business chic. Every day when I get ready for work, or even when I’m shopping for work clothes, I can never wear something boring. Boring isn’t even an option in my closet. Although some of the pieces/outfits may be more plain, that doesn’t mean at (not even for a second) that they’re not totally chic. Every day is a fashion show, or else I wouldn’t get up and go to work at all (;

This is by far my favorite top – ever. While visiting my grandma this summer I decided to do some snooping through her closet and took it into my own hands to inherit a few things (; In my suitcase back to DC I had managed to bring this top and a plain white one just like it, as well as a curtain (I know, sounds weird, right? Lets save that for a different post). My grandmother is a bigger woman, which explains the size, but I adore oversized clothes – adore being the understatement of the year. There’s nothing like a classic red lip and a polka dot top – so vintage chic! I’ve never really owned anything vintage in my life so I cherished this top over summer, wearing it far too often. Surprisingly, it matched everything, or I was just wearing it with everything – either way, in the words of my best friend, it was tres chic.  Unfortunately for me (but luckily just at the turn of fall (; ) my grandma called in a rage saying it was her favorite top and she needed it shipped back to her before her doctors appointment so she could look cute for her hunk of a doctor. So, bye-bye to my polka-dotted love. Until next summer!

I love the whole concept of wearing a sweater over a dress! It gives you a cozy, effortlessly chic look and is so unique! This sweater is a bit short on me, so it was perfect to wear over this dress, which has a waist that flares around the tummy area. This could go the same for a skirt and sweater combo. It’s great for sunny, yet chilly Autumn days for a meeting over some coffee or a lunch date. Try this trick at home! 

Halloween Havoc…

October is my favorite month of the entire year! Unfortunately, I’ve been sick this past week and unable to enjoy all that it brings (and my blog 😦 sorry guys!) Not only is the weather not too hot or too cold, and the leaves are all changing different colors and crumpling under our feet, but it’s Halloween! Thanks to Missguided and Asos it’s so easy to get fab and spooky for the month of October. Here are some of my favorite pieces for babe-ing in the festivities (I hope that makes sense… I definitely just made that up :P)
