Since we are in full swing for back to school season + I have been binge watching Gossip Girl I figured I would share a little Blair Waldorf outfit inspo (any Gossip Girl fans here?!) One of my favorite preppy looks i love to wear is styling houndstooth.
I am mixing and matching a two piece houndstooth set I got from SHEIN here – I used the top for this look to style with a simple black skater skirt. I love buying two piece sets because you get 3 different outfits out of it – one for the two piece matching look, one of the top styled with different bottoms and one with the bottoms matched with a different top.
I layered a chic cardigan over this houndstooth top which instantly gave me school girl Gossip Girl vibes…must have for anyone that loves to add some preppy style to their wardrobe. I also paired the houndstooth print with a simple black skater skirt to avoid mixing patterns – this skirt is from Amazon + one of my go to’s.
I had a pretty busy weekend – between last minute holiday shopping, prepping for my upcoming trip to London for Christmas (just a week and a half away!! ahh) + last but not least…I picked out my new car!!! I can’t wait to get it – such a busy month for Missy. Anyways…I wrapped all of Mike’s gifts (in Minions wrapping paper of course hehe :p) and began putting outfits together for London…more tourist shots are going to be popping up all over your Insta feed – beware haha
As I am prepping for the upcoming cold temperatures in London, I am excited about wearing my cozy coats + sweaters but I was melting in LA all weekend long. So what is the perfect piece to layer when winter in LA feels more like fall or spring? Easy…this Coalition LA vegan moto jacket.
This jacket is perfect transition temperatures like there are in LA now. Some days it is super hot + other days it is windy + breezy, so this jacket is the perfect in between!
Best part? It is VEGAN so it is PETA approved + animal friendly 🙂
Happy Friday Loves & TGIF! After an exhausting week and finally experiencing some fall weather, I am definitely ready to start looking forward to the weekend and what better way to do that than with a fall fresh look? 😉 This look is full of great fall colors like chestnut brown, leopard print and a little bit of plum. Oddly enough in addition to my fall ready accessories, I realized my pup Charlie is ready for fall himself with his blenheim fur coat which has….chestnut! Yes we matched on purpose 😉 My little Charlie is my best accessory…I mean can you see why? 🙂 Anyways let’s break down the look. My shoes are from Target…I saw J Crew had a pair three times the price and then found these identical ones from Merona and fell in love…leopard print is always a yes for fall!My Louis Vuitton clutch is vintage! My mom got it from Paris for her sixteenth birthday…talk about starting a trend back in the day…guess we know where my love for Louis Vuitton came from<3The purple statement cuff I am wearing is from Capwell + Co AND it is currently for sale in my Poshmark closet here! My white triangle necklace is an oldie but a goodie…I honestly have no clue where I got it but I found a similar one from T+J here. My chestnut chiffon blouse is from Old Navy but I found a similar one from Macy’s here. Purple is my favorite color…I wear it year round, but plum is perfect for fall! Skater skates are my favorite silhouette so I found my favorite skirt ever…this plum piece 🙂Now I’m off to put more fall fresh looks together…did I ever say blogging is hard work? Because trust me…it takes a lot of moving parts to make one of these style posts happen but hey it’s my passion <3Shop My Look<3
So in my attempt to check out better locations for my outfit shoots, I forgot to take into consideration the weather! This spot is one of my favorites on Long Island, Mill Dam Marina. I used to actually hostess part time while I was in college at a restaurant located on the water next to the marina. The whose who of Huntington, Cold Spring Harbor and Lloyd Harbor, New York can dock their boat at Prime restaurant and then enjoy a delicious meal!
Now I’m not going to lie, it’s freezing outside so this isn’t truly what I’m wearing today but it’s a classy work look I absolutely love for fall into winter.
A great print can truly make or break an outfit depending how you style it, so I always opt to put a busy print with neutral tones like this reptile print top with a plain black skater skirt. Pair it with some nice pumps and a cute bag and your ready to take over the corporate world…or a company holiday party straight from the office!
Happy Humpday & Stay Warm!
