These are my favorite earrings, I wear them almost everyday. They are dainty but still have a little sparkle and I love that they are mini ear climbers!

 This is the best vest ever! I got this vest last winter from J.Crew and I love everything about it. It’s comfortable, stylish and not too bulky. When looking for a puffer vest consider if you will be wearing it for work or play. If you are wanting an athletic outdoorsy vest, stick with Patagonia or Eddie Bauer. These are great for out in the elements and give you a sporty look. If you want your vest to be a fashion piece, only go to J.Crew.  This vest will not disappoint and you will be loving it too!

I also have it in chartreuse and this season I love the irish moss!

Winter is all about staying warm and what better what to do that then with scarves! Scarves are one of my favorite accessory and they can completely change an outfit. These three looks all have the same staple garments with a different scarf for each look. You can see how much color, texture and tying can change an outfit. I am always looking for new ways to tie scarves and make them look new and exciting. Interested in finding new techniques? Try Pinterest for fresh ways to tie your scarves!

This wool baseball hat is one of favorite hats, the grey goes with so many things and it’s a great piece for fall and winter. To offset the casual nature of the baseball hat and cargo pants I have paired them with a sweater and statement necklace. This neutral color palette is perfect for many scarf and sunglass combinations. My go to sunglass choice on a daily basis is aviators, specifically reflective aviators. They are so fun and add a pop of color to any outfit while keeping you shaded. Check out some new aviator sunglasses at Salt City Optics.

A rainy night can’t keep a happy hour at bay. We recently braved some chilly temperatures and layered up with some fall favorites in order to have the happiest of hours in Hopkins. Right now is all about the transitional clothing, trying to leave the summer behind without welcoming fall too soon can be a challenge. I really try to mix pieces from both seasons in one outfit to get a transitional look.  Pairing a light blouse or t-shit  with a scarf gives a fall feeling but with a brighter finish. Dresses with booties or a skirt with a long sleeve shirt and a jean jacket are great ways to get through the early fall season.

With rain in the forecast, there is a short season for wellies and now is the time! I try to take advantage of this whenever I can. Now is also the perfect time of year to wear flats, sandals are about to be packed away and boots seem too aggressive. My favorite flats right now are printed, quilted, studded and pointed!
