I love breaking fashion ‘rules’ than are old and outdated.

True be told, I’m actually a fan of breaking rules and conformity as a whole. Of course I’m all for rules and regulations that keep us safe, healthy, etc. but restrictions are so yesterday. While I totally love order and organization, I tend to have a very laissez-faire attitude towards things. I believe in my dude TJ’s idea that we should all have the right to ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’ More love, less hate, more uniqueness, less normal please! That same life approaches trickles over into my sense of style as well. Honestly, who actually came up with rules like ‘no white after Labor Day’ or ‘black & navy don’t match’? And whoever did, why did most people take those opinions to heart and actually start following them? Ain’t nobody going to tell me what I can wear or when I can wear it…unless I’m a guest at your wedding or attending a themed-party you’re throwing, then I’ll allow you to give suggestions for my attire. HA! 😉

Fall Necessity: Longline Vest

When the Nordstrom Sale sneak peeks were made available, I instantly circled THIS vest as a must buy. The color drew me instantly and the drape-front was different than any longline vest I had previous seen. It sold out quickly, in all 3 colors {camel, black & grey} and unfortunately happened to be one of the few items Nordstrom didn’t restock after the sale was over. I’m actually pretty bummed about that because 1) y’all won’t be able to experience its awesomeness and 2) I really wanted to grab it in black. I guess it’s probably better for all of our bank accounts though right?! Since my exact cozy camel vest isn’t available, I rounded up 6 very similar options below if you’re in need of one yourself:

The Neutral Pairing

October has been filled with some seriously perfect days. This weekend was full of sun, minimal wind, a crispness in the morning and some subtle warmth by afternoon. Hello amazingness for real though! Because of that it has been a struggle at times to figure out exactly how to dress. This look initially started with a white long sleeve but after stepping outside I quickly replaced it with a basic tee. I love how clean the outfit is and because of the classic look, I’ll be able to get away with wearing this at work even if it’s not Friday. It is quite possible this has been my favorite Fall look thus far! White denim are a year-round staple for me and as all the leaves change color and begin to fall {no pun intended!} off, the way the bright white pops against the background makes me love it even more.

On another note, I’m in Kansas City for work the next 2 days…if you have any suggestions for good food spots, send them my way! Happy Monday, loves!!! xox

Current status: cozy AF in this cardigan. I figured that sentence would be a bit more appropriate in the body of this blog post vs. the title. And I’m pretty sure I’ll end up having to explain what AF means to my Mom since there’s a strong chance she’s one of the few that actually […]

Oh Sweater Weather, how I love you! Don’t worry Summer, you’ll forever remain my favorite but there is something so great about putting on a cozy sweater while getting dressed in the morning. The past two weeks or so in Omaha have been super confusing weather-wise. One day will require a warm turtleneck and booties […]

Casual Fridays are my favorite. To be honest, basically any day in my office can be casual and I love that but Fridays just feel different regardless of the dress code. Maybe because they’re my favorite weekday and they mean that in just a few hours we’re free for the weekend or maybe it’s because […]

Sometimes I feel the need to break up my all black looks. Not often though because black-on-black and then some more black is kind of my obsession. In my mind it is the easiest way to look classy and put together with minimal effort. And we all know I’m all about being just about as […]

What is the best way to dress to combat transitional weather? That is the question I’ve literally asked myself daily for the last few weeks. It could be as chilly as the upper 40s in the morning but some days have warmed all the way up to the low 80s. Layers are an obvious answer […]
