Fashion Friday: The Staple Trench

Just a quick Fashion Friday today as I’m not only on a family trip but also am feeling a smidge burnt out this week.  I have long been pondering a splurge/investment of a Burberry trench coat.  I’ve had other versions that have been nice but not QUITE the timeless quality of Burberry.  And the trench is something that will not only never go out of style, but is a piece that can last you a lifetime.

You can dress a trench up or down- it looks great both with jeans and a tee as well as a topper over a dress. And sleeveless versions are great for layering or wearing alone as a dress (a la Meghan Markle).

Here are some great choices in different price points:


Fashion Friday: Pretty Bags For People Who Actually Have S#*! To Carry!

I keep seeing all these teeeeeeeeeeny tiny mini bags everywhere and on every fashion darling, but you guys, the number of times I am going somewhere where I only need a lipstick and credit card is like…… never.  I am either toting around my laptop, samples and work stuff or a diaper clutch, sippy cup, snacks and kid stuff.  And I know a lot fo you are the same way! My dream bag would have a wide crossbody strap like the Hermes Evelyne bag with a body the size of my Cuyana tote- pretty structured with some pretty details on the exterior and a couple decent pockets on the inside.  Is that so much to ask?  Until that bag is made,  I rounded up a slew of pretty but roomy bags that can actually fit the stuff of life in them!

I also discovered this company, Senreve, which makes this great bag that can be a backpach, tote or shoulder bag and has tons of great compartments.  They also make this bag liner that makes it a cinch to switch bags without forgetting anything!

 

Fashion Friday: Wine Time

I’ve already noticed that for fall that wine and deep red/plum tones are gonna be HUGE, especially when paired with brighter reds and pinks or navy.  I’m not usually a red person with interiors, but I do enjoy a good red when dressing. Here are some picks that follow this hot fall trend.

Fashion Friday: Wear Now & Later

We’re sort of in no man’s land clothes shopping-wise right now– summer is half over so it’s hard to buy stuff that you know you can only wear a couple more months, but it feels WAY, WAY too early for fall clothes. The catalogs coming out right now with Halloween stuff are making me CRAZY.  What’s a gal to do?

Well, there are plenty of things that will work both now and later.  Workhorse pieces that you can rock now when it’s hot or later when it’s cooler.  Here are four examples to get your mind working:
