    Ten Neutral Fall Basics

    Yesterday’s walk to school was full of dark, moody clouds and cooler temps in the 60s and 70s. It’s the time to start a transition in my wardrobe from summer basics towards fall. Today I want to share ten items that create a solid foundation for a fall wardrobe. These are the pieces I wear most often, and they are timeless options that won’t go out of style quickly. When dressing for fall, I am often an outfit repeater. I like to wear the same silhouette, like a tee and sweater with jeans or a fleece with leggings, daily. It feels good and requires little fuss. Because fall can fluctuate…

    Must-Have Fall Denim

    While I’m still in full summer mode, one of my all-time favorite pairs of jeans was just restocked, and I wanted to give you the full details before they sell out again. The ’90s Cheeky Jean from Everlane has been a style staple for me, and I especially love wearing them in the fall with sweaters, tees and even a silk cami on date nights. You see these jeans in my outfit posts often! They are a great foundational piece made from premium non-stretch Japanese denim. The high rise waist and easy straight leg are flattering and feel really comfortable. For fit questions, I am 5’4″ and typically a size…

    Ten Neutral Summer Basics

    Last weekend, I listened to a Tedx talk called the Ten-Item Wardrobe about an American college student spending a semester in Paris. During her months abroad, she realized French women own a very streamlined, small closet of quality basics. They repeat their outfits often and rely on a consistent uniform. I’d highly recommend listening to her story and how it changed her own view of style. It was a source of inspiration as I’ve been slowly decluttering in my own home this month. Less is more! I started editing my own wardrobe to remove outliers I don’t really wear and quickly realized that during the summer months when layering isn’t…

    How to Create a Cohesive Closet

    In my twenties, my closet was a hot mess. Shopping the sale rack without a list meant I brought home anything that caught my eye – aka the loudest, most bedazzled clothes. Nothing went together, and I would stand in front of my closet each morning trying to come up with creative outfits for my job as a teacher. Often there would be multiple pieces scattered on the floor by the time I left. Over the years, I’ve learned to simplify and have slowly shifted to a more cohesive closet built around basics and mostly neutrals that work together. The added benefit is that I can now get quickly everyday,…

    In My Jewelry Box

    When it comes to jewelry, I’m definitely a less-is-more kind of girl. I have a few delicate gold pieces that I rotate through, and I love the subtle gleam they add to any outfit.

    Fall Shoe Edit

    I’ve slowly been organizing my closet for the new season, and this week I began to swap out sandals for more appropriate fall footwear. Looking over this collection, there’s a common thread – these shoes are all very comfortable to wear, and they’re made from quality materials. I don’t mind spending a little more on shoes since they can really change the look of an outfit and well made shoes last longer and feel better. I style these shoes every week in my outfit posts, but this post gives a better overview of my wardrobe as a whole. Starting from top to bottom, left to right Nisolo Ava Ballerina Flat.…
