Fall Flat: Loeffler Randall Natalie Studded Toe Flats
The cap toe trend is evolving this Fall with a little texture. From shiny gold caps to spikes, studs and rhinestones, the simple flat is getting interesting.
A great pair of flats that can be worn with both workplace-appropriate attire and casual weekend pieces is a worthy investment. Loeffler Randall’s Natalie Studded Toe Flats fit the bill – a sleek cap toe keeps the look on-trend but still polished, while the gold studs add texture and whimsy.
The Natalie Studded Toe Flats are the perfect hybrid of comfort and style. Traverse around the city or trek to work in shoes that won’t ‘fall’ flat.
Denim Expedition: Seven For All Mankind
Shopping for jeans is an exhausting experience. Hauling 15 pairs of denim into the dressing room, hoping that at least one is the perfect fit, style and color.
Seven For All Mankind Classic Straight Leg in California Coast is my current blue ribbon-winner. Wanting to test-drive a new style and vear away from the skinny jean, I went looking for a pair of jeans I could live-in. Don’t get me wrong I do love the skinny, however, sometimes I want jeans to look like jeans and not second skin.
The Classic Straight Leg is exactly that…classic. Form-fitting in all the right areas to accentuate the body, but leaves room for comfort, detail and style. These jeans are soft and comfortable and have an amazing stretch. The dark inky-blue wash is my favorite for everyday jeans, polished and perfectly worn-in.

Hair Jewelry: Urban Outfitters Oversized Turquoise Barrette
Get creative with accessories this month and opt for an oversized hair barrette. Simple and polished, this one item can transform a look.
This Oversized Turquoise Barrette from Urban Outfitters is an excellent embellishment that adds a pop of color. The raw turquoise stone provides a natural yet edgy look.
Simply, add this barrette to a high/low ponytail or create a deep side-part, sweep the hair and clip barrette into place above the ear. Use as an ornament to compliment any classic chignon or french twist style, or decorate a plain headband by attaching barrette to the side.
Don’t want to wear this item in your hair? Fine… Attach to scarves, bags, bracelets or necklaces, the possibilities are endless. I have recently detached the clip and hot glue-gunned the stone to an old black clutch, instantly creating something new. With so many options, barrettes provide a finished appearance with a simple click of a clip.
Weekend Ensemble: ella moss
This weekend relax in a maxi skirt and racerback, or dress it up by adding some chunky heels and jewels.
The maxi skirt trend this season is one of my favorites, due to its comfort and ease. This ella moss black maxi is a great casual-chic basic that can be worn running errands, to the beach or out on the town.
Maxi skirts will be a staple in every closet this season. They come in an assortment of colors and patterns, styles and fabric. The polished and fluent look of these skirts are feminine and graceful. The maxi skirt is a trend that will continue to flourish in seasons to come.
Have a great weekend!
