Sweater Poncho From Stitch Fix+ WW Link Up

Stitch Fix Review
*This post contains affiliate links. 

Is it cold (yet) where you live?  Here in New England, we seem to have skipped right over fall and headed straight into winter temperatures.  Seriously, today was a high of 46 degrees, in October! I've already had my favorite sweaters on heavy rotation for the past couple of weeks, so I was excited to find this poncho sweater staring at me when I opened up my latest Stitch Fix shipment.

If you've been following along for a while, then you know I'm a big fan of the personal styling service, and each shipment never seems to disappoint.  This time around, it was this Leo & Nicole poncho that was the keeper.  My fix also included a great pair of legging (they were too similar to my Spanx ones, so I didn't keep them),  a knit t-shirt dress, a black blazer, and a pair of booties.  I did a try-on session of my Fix on my Instagram Stories, so if you'd like to see the other items, head on over to my Instagram.   You can find it under the Stitch Fix highlights.

The weather happened to be on the warmer side when I took these photos, so I decided to pair the poncho with my black jeans and open toe booties, for an early fall look.  For these cooler days, I've been switching out my open toe booties for a closed toe option, or have been wearing it with leggings and knee high boots.

Speaking of boots, mine are currently on sale.  Target is having a buy one, get one at 50% off sale on select boots!  I checked out the selection, and there are a lot of cute options!  I linked all of my sale picks below.  Hurry, this offer is only valid through 10/20.

If you're unfamiliar with Stitch Fixit is a personal styling service where items are picked out based upon your style preferences, and delivered right to your door step.  Upon signing up, you are asked questions about your style, then assigned a stylist who picks out five items per shipment to send you.  You have three days to try on the clothes and decide what you want to keep or send back. This is the best part about the service, since you are able to do this in the comfort of your own home. You simply keep what you want, and send the rest back in the prepaid shipping bag that is provided. There is a styling fee with each box of $20, however, if you decide to purchase items from your box, then the $20 is put towards your purchase.  If you decide to keep all 5 items, then you get a 25% discount! And it's for everyone.  Stitch Fix carries women sizes from XS-3X, men's, petite and maternity!

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

Belted Cardigan
 *This post contains sponsored content and affiliate links.  All opinions are my own.

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!!

The Best Fall Cardigans + WW Link Up

Oversized Cardigan
*This post contains affiliate links.

Has anyone else pulled out their fall sweaters yet?  With temperatures in the mid 60's (here in Boston) this week, not only did I organize all of my sweaters, but I was excited to finally wear some of the new ones that I purchased during the Nordstrom sale.  Although summer went by way too fast, I have to admit that this is my favorite time of year for dressing.  I love when it's cool enough to throw on a cozy knit, yet still warm enough that you don't need a jacket. 

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the weather has cooled off since tomorrow is officially the first day of Autumn.  Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sharing some of my must-have items for this fall and winter season, and today I'm beginning with my favorite fall staple: the cozy cardigan.  Not only are cardigans perfect to wrap yourself up in on a chilly day, but they pair well with everything!  From jeans, to work pants or dresses, you can never go wrong with a cardigan.  Plus they can be styled so many different ways.  Wear it open to show off a camisole or graphic tee, or wear it buttoned with belt over, to cinch in your waist.  This oversized cardigan is one that I snagged during the Nordstrom sale.  I love the waffle stitching and the grandfather fit.  Sizes are limited, but know it keeps coming in and out of stock (last time I checked, sizes extra-small and large were still available).  If you're looking for a great open cardigan, then I highly suggest this one.  I got is last year, and still wear it all of the time!  I also just ordered this open knit cardigan, and if you're looking for a splurge that will last you years to come, then I recommend this beauty from Vince.  Make sure to check out all of my cardigan picks below.
