Fall essentials

Most of you know that I’ve been a Misa Los Angeles fan for a LONG time. What’s not to love about this dress. It has a killer pattern, bell sleeves, and perfect length to wear with pumps or boots. Did I mention that it also works great with a denim jacket? Well, it does. If you see me at Gjelina in Venice wearing it, say hi.

Hope I have convinced you in these 6 sentences, if not, try it for yourself. Sizes sell out fast.

The next hardest decision will be, twiggy dress with a blazer or denim jacket?

TWIGGY DRESS in size small

It is Monday and I’m reaching for my medium sized almond milk latte! Loving these boots from Vince Camuto! They’re slouchy and perfect over boots or leggings. Have a great day.

Happy Monday!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE starting August 4. Definitely check your card status. One of my tips is, start a wish list now, so you can add your items to cart. Tip #2 Once you add your item to cart, check out as soon as possible. I’ve lost so many items because I was adding to my cart and didn’t check out right away to secure my items on my wish list. Hope that helps. Below are my very selective picks from the sale based on some of your requests. Only my favorites! Look below and let me know if you see anything that you’ll add to your wishlist.

Off to the pool with the kids, see you in the Nordstrom dressing room Tuesday!

jeans (so flattering!) // leopard booties // sweater

I’m back home from SF – a 48 hr trip I’ll share more on later. I’m ready as ever to take on a semi-lazy weekend. In addition to a soccer game and meeting to Beverly Hills, I’ll be  wearing these leopard booties to date night. It is no surprise, leopard booties are on the must have list this season and I’ve rounded up ones from every price point. From low heel to high heel, $119 to $204, there’s one for everyone. Hope you have a restful weekend!

I’m in the midst of putting together a fall must have collection of only a max of ten items to show you guys and a blazer is among the must haves for fall. While it’s still an 80 degree fall in SoCal, you can still dress up shorts with a blazer and chic heels. I partnered with Adriana Online on social this week, but this look was too good not to share here too.

DENIM I love a good pair of denim for fall dressed up with a tank and blazer. I tend to like both dark and light denim. See some of my picks below:

BLAZERS Nothing dresses up denim like a tailored blazer over a tank. And I’m loving them in all colors. See my picks below:

If you’re in search of one fall must have, it’s a suede jacket! This one has the perfect dark camel hue and a great fitting cut (I recommend sizing up). I love it paired with these sailor shorts from EXPRESS. And don’t forget booties or block heels. This outfit is the perfect transition outfit for those in the warmer climates experiencing an Indian summer but need a cozy covering for evenings.


shalice-168I also plan on wearing this suede jacket with a knit turtleneck sweater for our next trip to Big Bear. It’s so funny how excited us Chicagoans are to travel to the cold regions of California. The kids keep asking when we can see snow. I distinctly remember thinking bad thoughts about the minus nineteen-degree winter that came every winter in Chicago … and yet. (Read our full story HERE.) Fall chill is all about excitement and refreshing the wardrobe accordingly. I also linked (and pinned!) some EXPRESS favorites. Which are your favorite?

Happy Fall!
