It goes without saying that the world of fashion is one wrought with frivolities and indulgences, despite the tired reply that we all have to get dressed in the morning. Obviously I wouldn’t have this blog if I didn’t love style, getting dressed, and all the trappings that come with it. I will say though that any opportunity I get to remain smart in my purchases, whether in price or wearability, I’ll take it.

Say hello to the denim/chambray/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, shirt. If you want a go-to item that can enable an endless amount of looks, this is it. I choose to wear this darker variation with this great Phillip Lim for Target skirt, and Baublebar tortoise necklace that I find myself reaching for often.

If you don’t have a denim shirt yet, first of all, where have you been, and secondly, get on that! It’s no longer just a trendy item that will expire in a season or two, instead the denim shirt has proven itself a fashion mainstay.

Not convinced? Stay tuned for another outfit post this week featuring (you guessed it) the same shirt.

Just give me sunshine (ok, and coffee too)

I spent an ideal Sunday morning with a best girlfriend, sunning in the Autumn weather on a bench, people, and cute dog, watching as we caught up. This outfit was perfect for letting those last rays of the season warm my legs, but also kept me reasonably cozy (because duh it’s getting cold, guys). All these pieces are pretty standard in the majority of our closets, no? Something about the more beat up shoes, and bright bag kept this look exciting for me. But overall, this formula is pretty close to perfection and easy for me.

Happy Monday guys, hope you’re spending about a half of your day staring into a coffee mug like I am … it only gets better from here!

A little bit of school boy

A perfect day basking in the river breezes, with a favorite pair of tweed shorts (a great piece for fall wouldn’t you say)? This outfit had a little bit of a school boy with a contemporary twist. With a longer pair of shorts, and a updated few accessories, getting dressed in the morning stays interesting.

A few quick shots before running out the door for another busy day. I’m so happy to have these new black flats with a little luxe (see the gold heel). Sometimes it’s the small details that make a basic really work for you. In other news, this is one of the bags I picked up at the Phillip Lim for Target insanity. That’s right, I was one of those crazed fashion people breathing on the glass of the Target door at 8 AM on Sunday morning. Worth it.

Happy almost weekend!
