A few days ago I had the chance to visit the new  Lou & Grey store at the Natick Mall. The store is the aesthete’s personal heaven with a beautifully designed layout and carefully curated selection of goods to compliment the already pretty color scheme of soft neutrals. I’ve been a fan of the brand since I discovered it a few months ago for it’s clean and fresh aesthetic. Their brand statement says, “comfortably confident and confidently comfortable.” That really resonated with me. What we wear says so much about who we are, where we’re going and who we want to be. Their line is a mix of carefully designed basics from sweatshirts to denim to slouchy track pants and simple dresses. The color palette is simple yet appealing in grays, blues, black and white with the occasional deep red. It’s one of those stores where you literally want one of everything, I had a really hard time leaving with just one outfit, and it’s the type of clothing line where you could mix and match each piece. Since I’m such a denim girl I opted for skinny jeans because they fit me perfectly and were the softest jeans I’ve ever tried on and paired it with the striped shirt because of it’s versatility and slightly nautical/preppy feel. With everything on the site 40% off today it’s the PERFECT excuse to try a few pieces for yourself. Check it out, and let me know what you think!

Most days my work attire is very casual, but if I have client meetings or a special event during the day I like to dress it up. I loved this plaid pencil skirt from the moment I saw it and while it looks great with heels, I would definitely wear it more casually on the weekend with booties. I can’t get enough of this hat (or hats in general) from Bluefly, and they have tons of other great options  in different colors. And how cool is this house? The owner came home while we were shooting photos out front and she was quick to point out that her house looks great with my outfit, I’d have to agree.

I’ve been a little intimated by the idea of culottes (and I still am) but the flowiness of these plaid culottes from ASOS were enough to make me give it a whirl. They so closely resemble a skirt that it was a safe way to try them out. They definitely feel very New York to me, and probably not something I’d wear often in Newport, but I do like the edginess of the style, even a little 80s vibe to them. I’m not one to wear something just because it’s trendy, but I do like switching it up once in a while and trying something new. I think these culottes are the perfect mix of fun, edgy and a little bit girly, and great for a weekend walk and Sunday brunch, and really what more could you ask for? Are there any trends you are dying to try? Let me know! And some happy hump day news, I teamed up with some bloggers for a Kate Spade gift card giveaway! Enter below.

One of my favorite things about fall is wearing big cozy sweaters and scarves. You really can’t have too many cozy knits for New England in the fall. Over the weekend Craig and I checked out the pumpkin patch at Queen Anne Square. I love how festive it looks in town during October and November. It was the first day that really felt like fall, a bit breezy and chilly, so I layered up in this cozy cardigan and oversize scarf (that I have been living in by the way). My go-to weekend uniform pretty much always includes skinny jeans, and these stretchy burgundy jeans from Piperlime are so comfortable and soft I felt like I was wearing pajamas (major bonus in my book). FYI they do run a bit long, but I like how they look bunched at the ankle with black booties. What’s your favorite go-to fall style?

Red is not a color I often find in my closet, I’m not exactly sure why, but it’s just not a shade I typically wear. I wanted to figure out how to incorporate some red into my wardrobe, so I thought I’d try this red maxi skirt from Chicwish. It took a while for me to decide how I wanted to style it (there were a lot of clothes on the bed when I was done) but I ended up settling on a simple stripe tee, sneakers and leopard bag (leopard and stripes are an easy way to mix prints). This is a great casual weekend outfit, or even weekday ensemble paired with flats instead of sneakers. I love this skirt, but I don’t know if I’ll be adding a ton of red to my closet any time soon. But I’m curious, are any of you a fan of red? How do you wear it? Would love to hear your thoughts! Have a great week! And don’t forget it’s the last day to enter the gift card giveaway with Chicwish!

I’m so excited to finally share with you guys my new collaboration with Nautica! Over the next few months I’ll be sharing my favorite styles from the classic, iconic American brand. Nautica’s particular celebration of and respect for the water is one of the main reasons I am so drawn to the brand. As someone who lives on and grew up on an island, I have a great fondness for the ocean. This week I decided to style a classic, the trench coat. It’s an absolute closet staple that adds polish to any outfit. Whether you wear it with jeans, a pencil skirt or a little black dress, a trench coat is always stylish. I love this navy one with gold buttons because there are so many ways to style it. I went for a casual look with this cable knit sweater and jeans, but it would also be chic with a shirtdress or pencil skirt. This is the perfect off duty weekend look, particularly for fall in New England. Make sure you head over to Nautica and check out their fall staples that are currently up to 40% off w/ code FALLFAVES. I love this color block pea coat and this plaid blouse. Happy weekend! xx

To say I was excited when I found this blush wool pea coat at H&M would be an understatement. Last year, I waited too long and missed out on a blush coat so I didn’t want to miss the chance this year. It’s the perfect go with everything coat, whether you wear it with skinny jeans or a cocktail dress and heels, it looks chic. Since I’ve been big on hats these days I also picked up this wide brim hat and for color I added this printed scarf. I love how big it is, perfect for when it gets chillier, and great for traveling. I wore distressed denim and black ankle boots to make the outfit a little less girly and a bit more edgy. What do you guys think? Anyone else loving the blush trend? What’s your go-to coat this season?
