How to Wear: Faux Fur Vest

As some of you may know my day job is in visual merchandising for a major retailer. We recently got in two colors of a faux fur vest and everyone, employees and customers alike, have been asking me how to wear it. The faux fur vest is a trend I have wanted to try for many seasons and I finally made the purchase when we received it in our store to add to my wardrobe. I took a look to see how I could incorporate the vest into my fall wardrobe. Here are three looks I came up with and I hope they help you get inspired to try your own looks with a faux fur vest.

First Look: Black Skinny’s and a Chambray shirt- I have also seen this same look but with a plaid flannel and cute fall boots, another option when styling your vest.

Second Look: A blouse and a statement necklace

Third look: LBD and booties

Converse All Day!

Every girl has one vise in life some like handbags or make-up, my one true love is shoes. I own them in all shapes and colors. I even have a whole walk in closet just for my shoes. Unfortunately the footwear I lack is tennis shoes.

I have one pair of Nike’s for working out and that’s it. By day I’m a visual merchandiser for a major retailer, in order to do my job I have to make sure my feet are covered. I’ve found it difficult to style black and pink Nike’s so I decided to purchase my first pair of Converse low tops.  A couple weeks after purchasing them I came across an InStyle article showing that you can wear Converse with anything and I got inspired.

Over the past week I decided to test the InStyle article and wear my Converse all week with various outfits. I must admit it made my job much easier and I was able to look fashionably chic while wearing tennis shoes!

Check out my inspiration and my five looks below!

Monday: LBD with Converse
Tuesday: Tunic and a Statement Necklace with Converse

Wednesday: Boyfriend tee and Converse

Thursday: Black Skinny's and a fun jacket with Converse
Friday: Lace and Leather with Converse

Midi Mayhem: Four Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt!

A Midi Skirt is a versatile piece. This item comes in all shapes, colors, and patterns. I have a midi pencil skirt, one in lace, and one in a fall floral pattern. For those of you who frequent my blog you have probably noticed my black midi pencil I have worn in several blog posts and on my Instagram. I was so in love with my simple black one, I decided to expand my midi skirt collection and share with you four ways to rock a midi!
Basic Black
All summer long I’ve been sporting my black midi with a knotted tank. Everyone always comments on how dressed up and put together I look. The best part about my first outfit is it is super easy and perfect for a hot summer day. My first outfit gives the illusion you put forth way more effort than you actually did. When it’s hot outside I like to keep it simple and with this stretchy black knit midi and a fun graphic tee its easy. Try this look and you can be comfortable and effortlessly chic just like me. 

Midi Pencil: Old Navy $10

Let’s add some color
I love my black midi so much I obviously had to purchase one in another color! This maroon midi is perfect for fall and continuing with my effortlessly chic style I paired it with a graphic tee, bold belt, and my leather jacket to create a simple going out look!

Midi Pencil: Old Navy $10

Fall Floral
My knit midi’s are perfect basic pieces. The floral midi I just purchased is a perfect transition piece from summer to fall. The flowers give it a summer feel but the jewel tone colors are perfect for fall. I’ve cheated a little with this next midi by showing you two looks. I wanted to show you how you can transition it with the changing seasons. The first look is the floral midi paired with sandals and a tank. The second one is an easy transition with boots and a long sleeve tee. Don’t forget to add a statement necklace and this outfit can bring you from summer to fall in a snap. 

Floral Midi: Old Navy $17

Romantic Lace
I had to have this next midi when I saw it on the rack. It’s the perfect midi to dress up any look. I paired it with some strappy heels and a graphic tee and wore it to a rehearsal dinner.  A midi skirt that can make a graphic tee formal is worth the purchase.

Lace Midi: Francesca's $20
