You've probably seen a crossbody in photos on Instagram or on the blog. And they are my favorite casual, everyday bag. My favorites are from Kate Spade (a true style icon of mine). But, when commuting to the office every day or traveling for work, I need to be able to lug my laptop, charger, notebook, and a handful of other things with me. So, a crossbody just won't cut it.
When I first started traveling for work I realized that packing for a business trip was more challenging, and of course less fun, than packing for vacation.
I always wait until the last minute to pack (even when it comes to vacations). Please tell me I'm not the only one! On my first multi-day business trip, I resorted to packing a capsule wardrobe based around one neutral color. I recommend using black or navy as your base color as doing so allows you to pack a single pair of dress shoes and tights (if needed), and makes it easier to mix and match fewer pieces to create more outfits. Although I resorted to this approach because I was crunched for time and thoroughly uninspired to pack, it's become my go-to method!
Tops, blazers, and cardigans with belts are everywhere these days. I think the trend works really well for tall women when the belt falls at the correct place. A well-placed belt or waistline of any kind helps create visual interest while creating a flattering silhouette.
But, tying a belt can be tricky. So, I figured I'd share a few tips on how to tie a bow (or loop).
Today, I'm sharing my top five favorite accessories for fall. These accessories will help take your favorite ME pieces from summer to fall and (eventually) winter.
A leopard print scarf // It's no secret that I love all things leopard (see more here and here). But, sooner or later the cold temperatures make it impossible for me to wear my signature leopard print flats, so I look to incorporate leopard print in other ways. Throwing on a leopard print scarf is one of my favorites.
I can't believe Labor Day is almost here to usher in the unofficial end to summer. I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to give up on summer!
I grew up in North Carolina where tradition dictated that you didn't wear white pants before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. I strictly adhered to that rule for years until one day I decided it made no sense.
