Because I’m Happy

248-lala_styled_11-13-14

There is something about this time of year that brings a smile to my face; the smell of fresh balsam that fills the air, the jingly Christmas music playing in the background, and the smiles of friends and families as they reunite for the holidays. Of course, the cooler temperatures are a huge plus for this Florida gal; I finally get to wear fall fashions! It is the most wonderful time of the year. And that makes me happy.

Comfy sweaters and plaid are a mainstay in my closet for when that first cold front moves through. How cute is this sweater by Sundry? The Sundry clothing line has a California-cool vibe with soft, wearable, snuggle-worthy fabric. It’s enough to make you happy.

I paired it with my go-to plaid shirt line: Rails LA. Who knew a plaid shirt could be so soft and so uber-cool?! I have at least 5 plaid tops by Rails, and I get compliments on them everywhere I go. The added bonus is the comfort factor. The tops are so soft you’ll want to live in them.  This particular style has a different print when you roll the sleeves…LOVE!

And speaking of comfort, if you haven’t tried on a pair of DL1961 denim, you are missing out. With it’s patented technology to “never bag or sag,” these jeans are a MUST in every woman’s closet. They’re comfy like leggings and they won’t stretch out (we’ve all had that happen- it looks like you could fit an extra person in your denim by the end of the day). Here, I’m wearing the Emma style which has a 29″ inseam (perfect for us shorter gals or anyone who wants a shorter fit).

The comfort doesn’t end at the denim. I pulled my “few-seasons-back” riding boots by Nine West and the leather was so soft…talk about comfy! To me, this was the perfect pairing for this preppy fall look.

Faux Fur Fix

Faux fur…I own way too many pieces of it for a Florida girl. Coats, vests, stoles…you name it…I’ve got it. You could call it a borderline obsession. People up North might poke a little fun at us Southerners; we wear our faux fur when the mercury drops below 70.

No brand makes tops quite like Rails LA. Known for their soft, comfortable fabric, Rails really hits the mark on the classic button-down. I love the print mixing on the rolled cuff of the sleeve. I chose a cranberry colored plaid for this outfit; I love anything burgundy for fall!

Leather pants are a huge trend this season, but if you can’t afford leather, opt for a coated denim. It’s a similar style with an easier price point. These amazing stiletto skinnies are by Current/Elliott. Trend alert: look for a pair that has zip detail on the bottom.

To complete the look, I added a neutral Rebecca Minkoff bag (my absolute FAVORITE bag of the moment), navy panama hat, stiletto heels, Chloe sunnies and a gorgeous Ted Rossi cuff.

A Perfect Match: Pink, Leopard and Chambray

Ah summer…a great reason to wear shorts every day! I found these adorable popsicle pink cuties at the Gap (and they were only $10!) I paired them with one of my staple button-downs…my chambray shirt from Rails LA.

 Who doesn’t love a little leopard? This Rebecca Minkoff bag from my store pairs perfectly with pink.

These Dolce Vita caged wedges are some of the most comfortable (and stylish!) shoes I own. I plan on wearing them all through the summer. They’re great for strolling in the city.

Cat eye shades are the biggest trend in sunglasses right now. Tory Burch hits the mark with these.

XOXO,
