The trends that you see this Fall will have you completely nostalgic for the days of your youth and one of those is definitely the resurgence of the choker. There are a ton of great options if you want to go more traditional (a la Kendall up there - which I love the modern twist of the additional delicate necklace) or more funky, but anyway you cut it, you'll want this included in your wardrobe this Fall for sure and I've rounded up some completely affordable pieces for you today.
Some of my fondest summer memories from growing up are the copious amount of time spent at the pool; swim practice, getting airheads at the snackbar, spending all day with friends - there really isn't anything better. My love of the water is not limited to pools, but it's a love that I have so desperately wanted Liam to latch on to. This summer our focus has been getting Liam comfortable with the water. This has included swim lessons and spending as much time at the pool as possible. It's been really awesome to see how he has progressed, though I wish we had done this sooner. And one such day, we took along our GoPro to play with while we were spending some quality time at the pool. Some of the pictures turned out so well that I had them printed and included one on my gallery wall in my office. However, it lead me to the realization that we do not use our GoPro enough. We've had it for a year or so and it was so fun and easy to use, not to mention captures such cool things from a unique perspective.
I'm constantly looking for ways to insert something interesting into my work wear because honestly, dressing for business can be boring if you let it be. I wore this leather pencil skirt a bunch last year and can't wait to break it back out once temps get a little cooler. An all-leather pencil skirt can be a little intimating in the work setting and so paired with this sweet blouse I figured I can't go wrong.

Happy Wednesday folks! I awoke to a delightful email from JCrew offering 25% off some of my favorites. Usually I don't buy into the click-bait, but I was not caffeinated and susceptible to being easily influenced with the promise of a discount. And it's a good thing that I did (for you guys at least, perhaps not for my bank account) as legitimately some of my favorites are marked down which puts them as an excellent price point to add to your closet without breaking the bank. Pop on over and use the code REFRESH to take advantage.
I am such a sucker for a good leather skirt so when JCrew brought back this beauty but in this gorgeous cabernet color, I was sold. What I love about it is how easy it is to wear now (maybe when it's under 100 degrees) and later with tights and OTK boots. For reference, though I usually go with petite, I opted for the regular in this so that it was a little longer for professional events.
The name Christian Louboutin is ubiquitous with luxury and beauty so it should come as no surprise that the namesake of the label's Parisian apartment is aligned with that aesthetic. It's some serious eye-candy and worth taking a closer look at this Friday. You can check out the full article here.

If you've done any shopping lately, you might have noticed that the ultimate french girl accessory is making a serious run at most desired accessory these days, the bandana. Chic, effortless, and a unique way to add a little bit more flair to your outfit. My personal favorites are either on your wrist or on a bag (which I have done religiously on my work bag for years). But in the event that you are in the market for other options, I found this gem on the JCrew blog, which I adore and make wearing a scarf as easy as 1-2-3.
