{chunky knit sweater + brown leather boots}

There's something about fall that just makes me reach for the biggest sweater to wrap up in...

The chunkier the better! I fell in love with this tan sweater the second I saw it - the thick knit texture and the little hearts that are all over it made me click "add to cart" so quickly I barely knew what was happening. I know some people scoff at pulling a sweater down over one shoulder but when the temperatures are cooler this is a fun way to show a little skin ;) I love when a sweater runs larger so that you have some breathing room to really give it your own personality. Paired with white jeans and riding boots it's the quintessential fall look. Some of y'all are thinking "omg white jeans?!" YES. When paired with warm colors it's the perfect way to bring out the richness of your leather boots and show off that gorgeous sweater.

Speaking of boots... I know that Tory Burch boots are on the pricier side. I own a black pair and a brown pair and they are easily my most worn boots to work, running errands, out for dinner, etc. They are 100% worth the investment because they fit incredibly well, keep their shape, and are so so so well made. If you're going to wear boots every season - then invest in a pair that will last you for years. I have had my black pair for almost 4 years and this brown pair for 2.5 and have never had to repair or resole them (yet - I will get new soles next year to keep them in perfect condition). I treat them with a leather sponge to keep the leather from cracking and extending their lifespan!

Love Always,

{gift guide | for the cozy}

Psst... you can shop this board by clicking on each item!

Eye Gels // Pom-Pom Hat // Oversized Travel Wrap // Jingle Ladies Pajamas // Grey Pajamas //

Bringing you the first gift guide of the season! I know it may seem early... but I like to begin my Christmas shopping on Black Friday after Thanksgiving (hello, amazing deals and steals). It's never too early to begin making a list and gathering your ideas for your loved ones. You may even need a quick gift for your dog walker, babysitter, or child's teacher!

Why is this called "For the Cozy"? Because the weather was below 40 degrees this weekend and all I want to do is curl up under a blanket, make a cup of tea, wear the softest pajamas I can find, and light a candle. I've had my eyes on that adorable grey pajama set for a couple of weeks now - I love the twist top and ties at the ankle! The Diptyque candle Baies is the most amazing smell I've ever experienced. 

Soft blankets, warm sweaters, adorable pink pom-pom hats, luscious bubble bath... time for a weekend at home to rest up and have some TLC!

Love Always,

{what to wear to a fall wedding}

One of the hardest things to dress for in the cooler months are rehearsal dinners and weddings! You want something comfortable to dance in, appropriate for the dress code, and seasonal! If you're like me, then you don't want long sleeves or a heavy, thick material if you're tearing up the dance floor. Getting a strappy dress is totally fine for the cold if you add a cashmere wrap to give you some warmth (bonus points because it will cover your shoulders if you're at a strict ceremony and don't want to keep a coat on). So how do you keep it seasonally appropriate... The answer? Color and fabric! Stick with dark hues like navy, black, wine/burgundy, and emerald green. For the fabric make sure it doesn't wrinkle easily (that instantly cheapens a dress) and that it's nicer than your simple black dress you wear to work. This is your opportunity to make a statement!

I originally tried this dress on in red at Shop Luna in Bethesda - y'all went nuts over it on IG stories. While I love a red dress more than anything I wanted to keep things a bit more muted for the rehearsal dinner (I was a bridesmaid) and this navy blue was so stunning when the fabric moves. It's stretchy and hugs you in the right places while still allowing you to eat (phew). I'm a small chested gal so I loved the knot at the front to give me some shape. I paired it with my favorite leopard clutch for a pop, comfortable nude heels, and the most gorgeous camel cashmere wrap I own. Camel goes with everything and really makes the navy appear rich!

Love Always,

{chicwish orange cape}

Happy November! I can't believe how this year has already flown by - it feels like Halloween was just yesterday! Oh wait ;)

Now that the weather is cooler (we seriously jumped from 80s to 50s) it's time to break out all of those cute sweaters! I love wearing seasonal colors like yellow, burnt orange, and burgundy... all the colors of the leaves. It just puts me in the festive season and makes me want to cozy up by a fire with a blanket. This new cape sweater is such a different shape and easy for layering underneath. I paired it with my favorite earrings from the summer and the boots you're going to be seeing a loot of. Y'all know I love my OTK boots! I had to retire my old heeled pair because the suede got ruined from salt/snow last winter. So I purchased these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I looove the pointy toe and chunky heel - it makes them SO comfortable and really easy to walk in! They also make your legs look a mile long which is always a good thing!

Love Always,
