Work-Ready Grey Tights Outfit + 5 Things You May Not Know About Me

Well, it’s officially fall, which means that over the weekend, I unpacked all of my thick wool sweaters, coats, and plaid from the box they’ve been hiding in since springtime. I missed them, and I look forward to their unveiling every year. It’s almost like getting an entirely new wardrobe as I temporarily forget about some of my favorites. Am I the only weirdo who does this? Probably not. ;)

It’s finally cool enough to have a need for tights. (Though I say that, and yesterday was actually warm enough for just a t-shirt. The weather is fickle.) Every year I replace my tights from the year previous. I just find that tights, no matter the price, tend to only last about a season from me before I accidentally catch them on something, they pill in particular spots from shoe rubbing, or they lose their shape.

Fashion Diary: A Day in NYC

Even though we got back from NYC last week, it feels like it was yesterday. I’ve been on the struggle bus getting back into the groove of things every since. My email inbox is still crammed full of unanswered emails, I’m beyond late on responding to blog comments, and you know, all the other things that go with vacations like laundry, cooking, and housecleaning has gone by the wayside. But, I feel like that’s just par for the course when you have a successful vacation. You get home, you’re exhausted, and then you attempt to play catch up for double the time you were away.

Fashion Diary: A Day in NYC

All of that to say we were in NYC for half a week this month and I want to share what we did, what we liked, what we didn’t like, and what I would recommend doing if you happen to be thinking about traveling to the New York City area anytime soon! Today I’m going to be breaking down a day in NYC, so that if you happen to only have about 24 hours in the city, these are the things that I think you should see and do.

5 Great Ways to Up Your Accessorizing Game

As much as I love a little bling in my life, when it comes to figuring out how to accessorize, my style is less is more. Coco Chanel always said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.” For me, it’s more about keeping it simple, to begin with. If you have trouble with figuring out how to accessorize or over accessorizing, however, keeping this rule in mind is key.

Vest: T Tahari Lily Scuba Moto Vest, borrowed from Le Tote
Shoes: Steve Madden “Pistol” Bootie via Nordstrom
Necklace: Bauble Bar for Nordstrom (similar)
Bag: Moda Luxe Nola Whipstitch Bag via Stitch Fix

Bracelets: Wrap Bracelet via Orvis // Jules Smith Pave Bar and Stone Cuff

With that said, learning to accessorize is an art that I think everyone is always looking to master. Every outfit is different, so it can mean playing with a lot of different accessory combos to get it right. The key to the perfect outfit is about balance. If you were wearing a top with a lot of pattern and detail, you would need to balance it out with your selections on the bottom, and the same applies with your accessories.

How to Accessorize in 5 Easy Ways

If you opt to wear many accessories in one place, try keeping it simple somewhere else. Or just go crazy and make a statement all over. Ultimately, the choice for accessorizing is all yours. If, however, you are struggling to figure out how to accessorize, I thought sharing a few of my personal favorites could be helpful!

The Easiest Ways to Style Your Favorite Dress for Fall

The weather is cooling down. It’s nearing sweater weather here in Seattle, and I’ll be perfectly honest; I’m super stoked about it. After visiting NYC last week, I was looking forward to coming home to cooler weather. It was humid and in the 90s, and this girl is just not used to that!

The Easiest Ways to Style Your Favorite Dress for Fall

As much as I’ve loved summer dressing, there’s something nice about throwing a thick, cozy sweater on and a pair of boots. I’d say that is the easiest way to style your favorite dress for fall. However, there are many more ways to do it. I thought I’d break down a few of my favorite accessories, from footwear to legwear, that make the dress you bought during the summer look perfect for the autumnal months.

Fashion Diary: Columbia City, Seattle

I don’t think it’s a big secret: I love living in Seattle. While it may rain a lot, what we don’t tell you about is our beautiful summers and the mild year round temperatures. For those that don’t love temperature extremes, welcome. You’re one of us.

The vibe of Seattle is casual, comfortable, and quirky: We don’t get dressed up often. We don’t expect you to dress up ever if you don’t want to. But don’t get me wrong – Seattle cares about style, even if it may not always be in fashion. We have the 90s grunge look down pat and have for years thanks to Pearl Jam and Nirvana who added to our already famous music scene. (Jimi Hendrix also grew up here! A park in his memory is over in the Central District.) And while some may be known for rocking socks with sandals, shorts year round, and the cold months often become a sea of North Face Fleece Jackets, some of us prefer to keep up with the latest trends. Or beat to their drum completely, whatever.

We also have a vibrant community of fashion designers and artists. While people may not fly into peacock like they do for NYFW, we do have our own Seattle and Bellevue fashion weeks and many fashion and design related events year round. And, the blogger community in Seattle is always working hard to show that Seattle has style too.

Fashion Diary: Columbia City, Seattle

I get asked all the time to share some of my favorite places or to recommend places for travelers to visit when they come to Seattle. So today, I thought I’d focus on one neighborhood that is a hidden gem and becoming very popular for locals to move into: Columbia City.
