Tinley Road, Fringe Purse

I'm having a slight love affair with leather this fall, and by slight I mean, full-on-can't-stop-wanting love affair.  I nabbed this jacket last year at the end of the season and I find it to be a great piece for the Fall/Winter.  A classic black blazer, with a little flair - what's not to love about it?!

Charleston Family Photos

For the past several years this time of year, we've done family pictures.  When it comes to styling family pictures, I subscribe to the mentality that coordination is the way to go rather than identical outfits - I keep it all in the same color family but play with pieces that are comfortable and fit with our personalities.  This strategy also is well aligned with the style of family photography which we prefer, which is more lifestyle.  My sister again, rocked it out this year for us.  We are always so lucky to have someone who is so talented and also knows us so well to capture our family through the years. (You can see our other family photos here and here.)

DC Tourist

[coat: anthropologie // sweater: jcrew (similar) // pants: gap // baubles: michael kors, jcrew, stella & dot // kicks: hunter // tote: c/o // sunnies: prada]

Earlier in the year, we decided to take a long weekend and galavant around DC.  Scott is from DC and I love any opportunity to play tourist there.  The idea of taking peanut along for the ride to see things for the first time through his eyes was just too tempting to pass up.  So this past Saturday, we took to the streets.  It was a little rainy and overcast, which actually made for the perfect weather to spend time in museums.

My go-tos for this type of weather is always sweaters and hunters.  I love the additional and subtle sparkle that the collar of this sweater affords and makes a bit of a dreary day a little more shiny.

Sweater Weather

There is nothing better than cozying up in a soft, warm sweater this time of year.  It's like wearing a gigantic hug all day long.  Though I have quite the collection, I'm craving some updates to my closet and here are a few that I'm lusting over.

Hope you & yours have a lovely weekend!

Tory Burch at SouthPark Store Event

Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting an event at the Tory Burch store at SouthPark Mall to showcase their Fall collection.  The store itself is just the perfect setting for a chic shopping experience - from gorgeous orange lacquer doors to the comfy couches, you feel as if you are browsing through a friend's closet rather than shopping in a store.

We had a fantastic turn out and it was such a pleasure to partner with the fabulous ladies at the store.  If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and visit with Anne Marie - she has a killer eye for pieces that you will be able to totally rock and is super fun to shop with.

Thanks again for the Tory Burch crew at SouthPark for partnering with me for this event. Hopefully we'll have something up our sleeve in the future!

Fancy Tweed + Fall Favorites

7 for mankind, Dojo, French Connection

We woke up Sunday morning to a brisk 39 degrees (yes, you read that correctly), but what it made for was a truly beautiful, sunny Fall day.  We are talking about the Fall days that you live for - where you layer up in all of your favorite fabrics (for me, fall means tweed, herringbones, etc) and just soak in the day.  I nabbed this blazer last year before it flew off of the shelves, but thankfully the good people at JCrew know how to bring back a good thing.  The beaded collar is just enough spunk and sparkler to make this jacket feel more feminine.  Another favorite of mine are these jeans; being short I typically have a tough time finding a good jean that I can get altered while keeping its shape.  These are actually the normal sizing (when I bought my pair, they were not available in petite yet) and they altered perfectly, but NOW they come in petite too - you couldn't have found a more perfect wide leg.

NFL StyleLounge: Panthers Style

In keeping with the great tradition of our Football Sundays, yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the NFL Style Lounge at Bank of America Stadium.  Erica Hanks partnered with the NFL to curate a collection which truly elevated your typical football style.  It's definitely an area where I think women truly struggle in how to look put together and chic, but also dress to support their teams.  Erica did a brilliant job styling some really fabulous looks paired with pieces available at the Panthers store (my personal faves: here, here, & here) and locally in Charlotte, including one she whipped up for me (I say 'whipped' because she really made it look that effortless) on the spot.  (The coat might have been ordered before I made it back home to my doorstep).
