In the world of constant social media, it’s hard not to be continually influenced by the images you see. But what works for other people might not always work for you. In fact, what other people like might not even be what you like or feel good in. Trends are moving so fast, it’s hard to even keep up with what’s cool these days.
When we are bombarded with the images curated by others, how do you find and keep your own unique style?
Fall is the time that everyone starts thinking about refreshing their wardrobe. When the weather starts to cool, it’s time to put away the summer dresses and pull out the scarves and sweaters. As you’re thinking about new pieces for fall, there are a few items that you won’t regret splurging a little more on. These items will last for year after year, and probably end up saving you money in the long run!
Here are my tried and true staples that I would totally splurge on again:
Buying new clothing for fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I am not a fan of really hot weather, and I get so happy every time the fall chill is in the air! I’ve already begun working on adding pieces for my fall wardrobe. If you’re looking to update your style this fall, there are a few key pieces that are a great place to start.
I realized from my “loving” pinterest board, that I have been pinning tons of images with the color terra cotta in it lately. The color has been popular for the last year or so, but as we transition from summer to fall, it’s such a pretty color to add to your wardrobe or home!
The warmth looks so pretty in interiors, and makes plants and other cool tones pop. I also found some really pretty stationary that feels so new and sophisticated, instead of the same old blush pinks.
For apparel this color can bring a lot of flattering warmth. I love pairing terra cotta with more neutral pieces for a pre-fall outfit. It’s also a beautiful color for lipstick or blush as we transition to fall!

One of my biggest life passions is deal hunting to find amazing clothing at prices that I can actually afford. I’ve shared tips and tricks for sites like Poshmark and how I shop the sale sections of my favorite brands to score deals. But recently, I’ve come across even better ways to find deals on amazing pieces, and I couldn’t wait to share with you guys!
It is the first Monday in May. Otherwise known as the Met Gala. One of the few days of the year that the Met Museum is closed to the public, in order to host the Met Gala fundraiser for the museum’s Costume Institute. The Costume Institute is critical for preserving and celebrating the history of fashion.
There has always been a debate of whether fashion should be considered art, and often fashion is not included in art museums. This started to change in 2011 when the Met hosted the exhibit Savage Beauty which celebrated the work of the late Alexander McQueen. I had the privilege of attending the exhibit, and it was one of my most inspired days as a designer. McQueen was a true artist. His clothing told stories in the most stunning fashion.
