Black and White Crochet + WW Link Up

Bell Sleeve Top

At this point, it's safe to say that I have a large obsession for lace (and crochet) tops.  In fact, they seem to be taking over my closet, and I'm not the least bit mad about it (you can see my last two lace purchases styled here and here).   I have to admit though, I think this black and white number is my favorite.  Between the crochet detailing, black accents, and the bell sleeves I'm in love.  I decided to pair it with my black skinnies for a perfect date night look, however, what I like most is that it can be styled endless ways.  It would look great tucked into a black pencil skirt or trousers for an office look, or you can go casual by throwing it on with a pair of distressed jeans and booties.  It will also make a perfect option for the upcoming holiday season.  Pair it with a full skirt or velvet pants, and you're holiday ready.

Do you have an item of clothing that you can't stop adding to your closet?

One Cardigan Three Ways + Link Up

Cardigan season is in full swing here in New England, and I couldn't be happier.  As much as I love spending my days at the beach, it's this 55-60 degree weather that I truly love, and am most excited to dress for.   Recently, I shared my round up of this season's best cardigans, and today I'm showing you how you can style a cardigan multiple ways, simply by changing your accessories.  A fun way to do this is by adding a belt.  Not only does it give an oversized cardigan a little shape, but it's a cute way to close a cardigan that doesn't have buttons.  I also love layering a scarf over my cardigan.  In addition to providing extra warmth and coziness, a scarf makes a great statement piece.  Of course, you can never go wrong with wearing a cardigan on it's own.  One adds the perfect amount of warmth when wearing a tank or camisole, and looks great with everything from jeans to dresses.

My oversized cardigan is from one of my favorite retailers, Chicwish, and beyond comfortable!  I'm headed to Killington, VT this weekend for a little leaf peeping and fall fun with the family, and you can bet this cardigan is coming with me!

A Subtle Way to Wear Leopard + Link Up

How to wear Leopard Print Booties
*This post contains affiliate links.

If there is one print that is everywhere this season, it is leopard.  Now, the animal print is nothing new.  In fact, it's been hanging in many fashionista's wardrobes for years, and some consider it to be a neutral.  Even so, it has taken front and center this season, and become the must-have print of fall 2018.  Some love rocking the bold print full on by wearing a great fitting dress or statement coat, but for those of us who mostly dress on the minimal side, I'm showing you how you can add the animal print to your look, without feeling over the top.

My favorite way to do this is by accessorizing with leopard.  By adding an animal print belt, bag, or pair of shoes, you're sporting the trend, but in a subtle way.  A leopard print booties makes a great option, as they stand out, but aren't necessarily the focal point of your outfit.  A flat or slide can take the look down a notch, but if you just want a hint of leopard, I suggest wearing the print as a belt or pair of earrings.

Trust me, I love the look of a leopard jacket and I'm even digging these pants, but for someone who mainly wears solid black and grey, I'm not ready to rock the trend that boldly..... at least not yet.  However, I am thinking I need this leopard print sweater!

My leopard boots are from last season, and no longer available, but I did link an almost identical pair. My top, jeans, and most of the leopard pieces that I linked below are currently on sale! They are included in the Shopbop Event of the Season Sale where everything is 20% off, and if you spend over $500 you get 25% off.  Hurry, the sale ends Saturday!!
