an easy mix

Lulu*s tee, Lily and Violet jacket, No Rest For Bridget denim, Cut 'n' Paste handbag, Loly in the Sky flats

It's not often that I veer from my standard palette of black and white, and this shoot (for a special upcoming feature!) was no exception. I love the suede fringe of the bag with the knotted textural cardigan paired with a pair of matte denim and a smooth and sassy tee—hola baby indeed. On a sunny October Sunday, this look was a no-brainer.

last season

Madewell tee, Chaser sweater, Kut from the Kloth denim, Ash Footwear sneakers

Time never fails to amaze me. It's such a simple concept, but every year I'm surprised how quickly the leaves change. Just a couple weeks ago it looked like summer outside, and now all of the trees above are orange and brown and I couldn't love it any more than I do. This chunky Chaser kimono was the perfect added layer for a breezy day over a light tee and my favorite distressed denim.

moccasin monday

Vans Girls jacket, Gap tee, JustFab denim, Minnetonka Moccasin shoes, Cut 'n' Paste handbag, Parc Boutique hat

Is there anything better than a favorite pair of moccasins? My blogger crush/real life pal Shaynah and I partnered up with Minnetonka Moccasin to style one pair two ways, and we had a great time putting together looks for these navajo printed moccasins. You'd be surprised how many ways you can wear them! Initially, I wasn't sure how easy they would be to style, but their casual chicness and brown/black color mix make them an easy selection for any outfit. See more photos and our feature on the Minnetonka blog here could win these or any other pair of Minnetonkas you choose on their website by entering the giveaway below! One winner will be randomly selected October 21. Good luck!

casual (pajama) friday

 Sincerely Jules top, G-Star Raw denim, Lulus flats, Cut 'n' Paste handbag

Throwing it back to a couple weeks ago in September on a casual weekday. It's days like this (the stretchiest jeans and an oversized sweatshirt) that make me feel like I'm wearing pajamas to work. Plus, there's the whole mess of half-up bedhead.

it's friday and thank goodness

 Bella Luxx button-up, H&M blazer, Madewell tote, Gap denim, Shoemint loafers, Lucky Brand bracelet

In case you don't live fifty percent of your life on social media like I do, here's some breaking news for you: Gilmore Girls is now available for instant streaming on Netflix and fall has officially arrived for most of the country (save for California and its heatwave of insanity). It's only (already?) the third and October is already shaping up to be a pretty busy month for me, climbing toward the capstone of October 25 for my four-year blogging anniversary. More on that closer to October 25. For now, go enjoy your Friday night. If you can say you've snagged any inspiration at all or even half of a smile from my something-like-business-casual outfit above or my elusive and loquacious ramblings, I've done my job.
