This year it even seems like summer is over before it started, but that does mean a killer set of pre-fall outfits to enjoy. The silk slip dress will […]Read more "pre fall "
Leather pants are one of those surprise staples you never know you need until you try. I wear them 10x more than I wear regular leggings, because they are just as easy but make me feel hot instead of lazy. They are best with cozy sweaters, but can be dressed up for work with a […]Read more "leather pants "

Remember this dress and when it was warm enough outside to not wear tights? Me neither. August flew by and the warm weather has mostly gone away with it. We were spoiled all summer with heat wave after heat wave, but the past few days have been a violent reminder about how much it sucks to […]Read more "how to make a seamless transition to fall"
