My DressLily Wishlist

Lately, I’ve been discovering new websites with some amazing fall pieces. I recently found DressLily, an online shop offering the best of women’s and men’s fashion! They have some must-have fall pieces, like the best sweater dresses for sale, comfy tops, and cute denim. Below are a few pieces on my Dresslily wishlist! This post is in partnership with DressLily.

Velvet Floral Patter Short Boot

I’m in love with vibrant, patterned boots, and these floral short boots are sexy and can add a pop to any outfit. I’d pair it with a pair of cropped denim and a black turtleneck for an easy-going look.

Color Block Whipstitch Crossbody Bag

I’m obsessed with how this bag is neutral, yet has dramatic detailing when it comes to the thick stitching. It’s the perfect accessory to pop any basic outfit. If you can’t tell already, I’m in love with accessories that take a simple look to the next level.

Striped Embroidery High Low Hem Shirt

Embroidered dress shirts are such a trend this fall! It takes a classic business look and transforms it to everyday chic. Pair it with dark denim and loafers, and you have a mix of everyday and the office.

Flounce Cutout Long Sleeve Plaid Blouse

Gingham isn’t just a pattern for summertime and picnics! It’s perfect pairing the classic pattern with dark denim and flats for an easy weekend or night out for dinner in the fall.

Tribal Print Chain PU Leather Crossbody Bag

Another perfect pop to a basic outfit! This tribal print crossbody can spice up any look. I’d wear it with black leggings and a super long, cream cardigan!

Dresslily has everything and more for fall and your closet! Check them out! My wishlist will definitely become a reality soon enough!

Gardens and Roses

Beautiful fall days make me reminisce of times when I was a child and playing in the garden. The flowers and petals, bushes and foliage make me feel right at home in the city. Today’s fall look was perfect for a day spent with the calmness of sweet grass and large oaks.

I am wearing a gray, knit sweater with a high/low hem. I paired it with a pair of olive, coated denim and added a leopard scarf. I wore a nice pair of chestnut riding boots (my favorite) and finished the look with a wide brim black hat, and my Tory Burch tote!

This look is so easy and casual! The weather was perfectly crisp, so luckily I didn’t need a heavy coat! Also, coated denim is probably my favorite for this fall! They are very comfy jeans, but have a little extra flare, almost like leather.

Make a day to spend outside with beautiful trees or flowers! Soon it’ll be winter, and all there will be is the crisp, white snow.

Appreciate The Gray Skies

The weather has been quite gray lately, but that shouldn’t ruin your fall. Enjoy the gray skies and crisp cool breeze. Soon, we will be dealing with mounds of snow and ice. So, why not match your outfit to the color of the day?

I did just that by keeping with the cool, dark tones. I decided to wear a stripe, tweed blue and gray skirt. I paired it with a long black sweater that has faux leather detailing on the arms. This type of sweater is perfect with a form fitting skirt because it drapes right over it! I added a leather jacket to keep warm and even a patterned scarf to add another touch of blue. I finished off the look with a pair of chestnut riding boots and my black Tory Burch tote.

This is my FAVORITE SKIRT! It fits many body types and actually slims the hips, rather than making them look bigger. The horizontal striped pattern can be unflattering at times on certain body types, but even a solid would work. It’s the perfect way to dress up, yet add a cool edge to your style!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday and do not forget to embrace those occasional gray skies!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! More blog posts will be up this week! Sorry for the delay! I have been fighting off a nasty cold! To start off the week, I wanted to wear something that was was easy, comfy, but made me look put together! What I got was an adorable blazer and jean combination!

I am wearing a olive green cropped blazer with an open front. I paired this with a long, flowy cream blouse, that is technically “racer-back” with a scoop neck. On the bottom, I threw on a pair of dark legging jeans, adding my chestnut riding boots!

I like how the outfit is a combo of simple colors. The green makes the outfit pop, but the blazer adds a classy component. The boots give it an equestrian feel, while still keeping it simple with minimal jewelry.

Monday’s shouldn’t have to be difficult! Put on an adorable blazer, flowy blouse, and jeans, and you have a classic outfit that is school and business ready!

Short and Sweet!

Hey all! Hope your Monday was fantastic! If not, Navy and Lace will cheer you up! Going back to school today was definitely a struggle. I wanted to be both comfy, but still have that sense of style and being put together! What’s a girl to do? Throw on some knitted leggings, and you are good to go!

In this very short and sweet post, I am wearing grey, black, and white knitted leggings. The pattern reminds me of a classic ski sweater. They cut off at right about the ankle for me, which are perfect for wearing with boots! I threw on my black 3/4 sleeve sweater with a satin back and my favorite burgundy scarf with fringe detailing. To finish off the look I wore my knee high chestnut boots and my Tory Burch wristband!

I got these leggings just over the weekend and they are fantastic! They were on sale at Target, so if you want a pair go online or go to the store fast! There weren’t many left! They are so warm and cozy; you could wear them as PJ’s! Wear them out, and you’ll look stylish but secretly cozy!

Until next time,

Bold Bottoms

Lately, I have been a huge fan of very bold patterns on pants. You saw me sport my camo pants in a previous blog, which I wear religiously. I love pants with a very defined pattern because it’s an easy way to sport a cute outfit and be adventurous!

Trust me, if people are looking at your bold pants, it is a good thing. I am wearing my “artsy” skinny toothpicks that cut off right at the ankle. The reason I say they are artsy is because it looks as though someone painted water colors on my denim. There are multiple designs and patterns, which grace the front and back of my bottoms. I then paired them with an interesting top combo. Peplums are one of my favorite trends, however most of mine are for the summer. What’s a girl to do? I wore my cream, peplum shirt with a zip-up back and layered a royal blue crop sweater over it. The two flow perfectly on my body and are just the right amount of layering to keep me warm. The peplum hem even allows the shirt to have a little shape as it poofs out a bit! I threw on a long necklace (mine has a key) and some short, biker boots with spike detailing.

This outfit took me only five minutes to pick out, and it’s probably one of my favorites so far. I love how the pants are the main statement piece. I feel like nowadays people always focus on wearing a bold top or accessory to make an outfit pop. But with a bold set of bottoms, you can add a little pop to your outfit without doing as everyone else does!

I know some people may be concerned about how the pattern will make them look. Trust me, I completely understand. I am a girl with hips and butt and would always shy away from a patterned pair of pants. I’ve learned that it all depends on the bold pair that you choose. If you are one who is worried about it making you look larger, try wearing a solid color that pops or even a very subtle and simple pattern. It doesn’t have to be over the top, but just enough to be the main focus in your outfit!

So try something new, and wear a bold bottom! You could be surprised at how one pattern may change your life and wardrobe!
