Casual Outfit
Fashion
Tee: Madewell, Jeans: Rag & Bone, Boots: Steve Madden, Purse: Old Navy (similar here, here & here), Belt: Madewell, Bracelet: Madewell I occasionally go through periods where I feel I'm lacking certain pieces in my wardrobe. Usually it's items that are trending in magazines or blogs, but recently it's been more classic pieces for me; destroyed denim, a black belt, some substantial leather ankle boots, a basic v-neck tee. These are items that I know I'd wear often, but until now, I had yet to find my ideal version of each. I browsed countless retailers and finally found these pieces, and I'm so happy with...

Relaxed In Rails

Rails Flannel

Rails Button Down: Brothers On The Blvd c/o, Tank: StyleMint, Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Booties: (similar here and here), Purse: Old Navy, Bracelets: Madewell If you're in the market for a high quality flannel made from some of the softest cotton you'll ever come across (seriously, you could sleep in it), then look no further than Rails. They're a celebrity favorite, which is no surprise to me or anyone who owns one, because the quality exceeds any other flannel I've worn. They come in a variety of colors, too, which makes choosing just one a difficult task. But I finally settled on this newer style since I'd never seen it before and loved...

Winter In The West Village
Fashion
Coat: Aritzia, Sweater: Nordstrom, Skirt: H&M, Scarf: Aldo (similar here), Socks: Forever 21, Gloves: ASOS, Booties: Similar here, Bag: Old Navy (sold out, similar here & here), Lipstick: Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in "Aubergine - eggplant" While I don't like having family as far away as New York, I do love being able to visit them. My brother didn't make it home for Thanksgiving this year, so I convinced my boyfriend that we should take a trip there instead. We thought it would be fun to switch things up by ditching the conventional hotel stay for a different experience, opting instead for an Airbnb rental, and I'm so...

Striped V Neck
Fashion
Coat: Forever 21, Tee: Bella Luxx c/o (sold out, but available in other colors), Jeans: Citizens of Humanity, Purse: Old Navy, Booties: Sam Edelman, Bracelets: Madewell / Gorjana & Griffin, Lipstick: Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in “Aubergine – eggplant” Having recently decided that my wardrobe could use a camel coat, I set out on a mission to find one. Plus, with an upcoming trip to New York, I wanted something substantial that would actually keep me warm. Knowing it would be a practical investment, I began my search with some higher-end retailers, but was disappointed with the selection. I quickly learned that in the fashion world, the end of October...

Fitting For Fall

Oversized sweater
Fashion
Sweater: Express, Bralet: Eberjey, Skirt: H&M (similar here, here  and here), Boots: Express (similar here and here), Purse: Old Navy, Bracelets: Madewell, Nail Polish: Essie in "Mink Muffs" You might associate a black mini skirt with something to be worn during warmer months, but I'm using mine even though the days have started to cool down. The leather-like material helps make this one perfect for fall, and it would work just as well in the winter simply by adding a pair of tights. I used to worry that black leather would come off too edgy for day wear, but a neutral sweater instantly softens the look. Top it...
