Falling in love with fall fashion

This is my favorite time of year to get dressed.  The textured fabrications, ankle booties, and cozy layering pieces…you just can’t go wrong.  Over the weekend I went to brunch with some of my Style Collective sisters at a local hot spot or, The Whale.  Style Collective is an online supportive community with influencer education that empowers women to find their purpose, be inclusive, and achieve success.  If you’ve read my posts in the past you know that I love a supportive community so joining Style Collective was a no brainer for me.

For brunch, I decided to wear my new striped shift dress from Stitch Fix along with a faux fur vest and peep toe wedge booties, also from Stitch Fix.  This faux vest has been a fall staple of mine for quite some time that I can’t even remember where & when I purchased it.  I did link some similar options below for you guys to shop!

How stylish is my Style Collective sister & good friend, Adrienne?  She has such an eye for thrifting and throwing together a perfectly polished look.  Be sure to check out her Instagram feed wanderlustandwardrobes I love how she styled this leopard dress!  How are you guys wearing leopard this season? I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leopard pointed toe flats, but haven’t found a pair that I am in love with yet.  If you have any favorites send them my way!

Denim x 2

Each week Style Collective posts a style challenge and as you guessed it, this week was denim on denim.  I paired my favorite distressed Old Navy Skinny Jeans with this Lacoste chambray top & my olive faux suede ankle booties, also from Old Navy.

After working for Lacoste for nearly 5 years I’ve accumulated quite the collection of button up tops & polo shirts.  Though I hardly wear them anymore, I love to bring this one out of storage every once in a while.  It also looks great paired with black leggings & knee-high Hunter boots or a white cotton midi skirt & wedge sandals.

Fashion Bloggers Unite

I am excited to share that I’ve officially become a member of Style Collective!  For those that aren’t familiar, Style Collective is a “blogging community and platform for female influencers to connect, grow, and learn how to be successful bloggers and entrepreneurs”.  When I first started my blog 2 years ago, I wasn’t sure which direction it would take or how much energy I would direct towards it.  But after trial and error I think I have found my footing focusing on fashion, daily outfit inspirations and the occasional momism.

Over the weekend I attended Pittsburgh’s first official Style Collective meetup.  It was the perfect opportunity to break all the rules…who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day?!  I also showcased my grandmother’s vintage leather coat which was recently handed down to me.  Can we just talk about this faux fur tho… 😉

This faux fur stole makes the whole jacket!  I’m in love; thanks Grandma.
