Hello Moto

I love my denim as much as the next girl that loves her denim, but I haven't actually picked out a new pair in quite a while just because if you get good quality they tend to go on and on Celine Dion style. That and, if you're honest with yourself you have a pair that you'd prefer not to wash for months at a time because they fit your behind just so.

HOWEVER there is always room in my heart/closet for another good pair so I was really excited to see Anine Bing brought into Eluxe. Three of my best friends are Scandinavian and introduced me to the designer's amazing basics awhile ago (that's how they roll over there: simple and beautiful). The quilted moto detailing on the knees adds just the right amount of edge, for me anyways!

WEEKEND WEAR: Leather & Plaid

To continue the leather theme from last weekend, I brought this favorite skirt of mine back out to play. It hasn't seen much play time since the Spring because even though its soft and thin, it's actually quite warm; warmer still when later paired with nylons. It has a great mix of references in it's tailoring which makes it more versatile...hard to get more versatile than a black skirt but the mix of athletic, rock and roll, and a dash of girly does the trick. I paired it with heels and then made it more casual with a baggy plaid shirt but you could do a heavy ankle boot and a beanie; maybe even a coat over the plaid as the Fall goes on. Either way, it's simple and definitely something you could go out in. Fight the fun fight weekend warriors! xo

WEEKEND WEAR : Leather & Leopard

Good morning Weekend Warriors! Time for some late breakfasts, extra coffee, and a little meandering of the places we love best. I am so happy it's finally time to bring my leather jackets back out (faux and real alike); they are easily my favorite single piece to pull an outfit together and make you feel a little B.A. When the temperature still rises during the day, I like to keep everything else in the outfit relatively light like this silk tee and cotton pants to keep looking schweet and not schweaty. Enjoy!

Almost Fall Overalls


Just a quick little Wednesday post and a late summer, warm weather opportunity to wear these overalls. OVERALL, they are the most comfortable (I wonder if it is possible for me to make one post without a pun?). I am wearing a long sleeve shirt and ankle boots and was comfortable but I think that if you have overalls that you loved this Summer, you could extend the use of them even further by putting tights or leggings underneath and a blazer or long cardigan over top. Basically the equivalent of making a favorite dress more seasonal but less fussy! Win-Win!

WEEKEND WEAR: Plaid & Pumpkins

One of my Fall fashion goals is not to immediately ditch my entire summer wardrobe, but to extend the use of those pieces into the fall by combining them in warmer ways. A striped dress looks less nautical and breezy when it's anchored (but still nautical puns) with a jacket and ankle boots. Mixing prints in like this GIANOMO plaid scarf also brings the outfit into the cooler weather. I  have to admit, I did put away my white purse though; the white after Labor Day rule won out on that piece.
I go to this farmer's market often as it is right by my house and I was pretty shocked (but happy) to see pumpkins already! I took quite a few small ones home to decorate my patio and will be back for more to start cooking with. Pumpkin everything. Sorry I'm not sorry! Have a great weekend everyone.
