Modcloth

Fall is a time of transition, so clearly there are days where you look in your closet thinking about how to dress for a chilly commute, yet an office that is humid. I found myself perusing Modcloth the other night, as they always have affordable options that are stylish, and unique. I picked out a few of my favorite items, and paired some different layering options with them. As you can see, for me it is all about taking a rather simple jacket or poncho, and putting some flair to it. For example, the edgy denim jacket/hoodie combo can be made ultra feminine by adding a lace, fitted tunic sweater under it for instant glam. Plaid is another favorite trend of mine this fall, and Modcloth has a great selection of plaid shirts. Layering plaid or chambray with a poncho is really classic and understated. I also really love brimmed hats this season! What about the selection above, paired with a chunky coat, and delicate shirt?  Shop all items below!

October Style Challenge

Weddington Way

I was recently approached by Weddington Way, an online bridal boutique, to take part in a style challenge. The idea is to pick your favorite bridesmaid dress from their page, and build the complete look around the dress. Upon thinking about this challenge, I thought about my wedding, which seems like ages ago. (6 years, to be exact).  I have always been a fan of a black and white wedding. While times and styles change all the time, there is something about a black and white wedding that is classic and effortless. Thinking back to my wedding, I realized that while I probably wouldn’t change much, some of my tastes have changed a bit.  This is the updated look I would choose for my bridal party. This Alfred Sung Dress (Style D586) is perfect, because yes, the bridesmaids can absolutely wear it again. (I am not just being Katherine Heigl circa 27 Dresses.) Lastly, something that is very important to me, when thinking about a look is obviously the music. I mean, they don’t call me Haute Turntable for nothin’. I have included a small playlist at the bottom that features a few songs that I think fit this look and capture the ambiance perfectly. (PS- one of them happens to be the song I danced to with my dad at my wedding. #ballerinagirl)

NYC is a city without judgment. Where else can you go and sit outside at any time of day just having cocktails? This is my kind of town. After putting in an afternoon of photo shooting, we decided to seek refuge at a local adorable watering hole in the West Village. We landed on Blenheim, which has an adorable patio, and an even more adorable cocktail menu. It was nice to decompress, because, hello…having your photos taken is actually stressful. (#firstworldproblems) In order to make photo taking less stressful, I go back to basics. Ok, so literally you can wear a trench coat with absolutely anything, and it will look good. Scouts honor. This trench from Burberry was an investment, however something that will last a lifetime, and will always be in style. Guys, I am not the blogger that always rocks designer labels, and in fact I am quite the baller on a budget. I will, however, always invest in timeless pieces. Just do it.

You know that feeling when you have been in a rut and suddenly something inspires you, and you feel reborn? Ok, I get that sounds pretty dramatic, however that is exactly how I have felt lately. You may have noticed that I have not been regularly posting for the last month or so. While that was due partially to my extensive work travels, it had a lot to do with me. I was feeling very blah, and not inspired. I am not the person that is going to throw up an outfit post, just because. I want it to mean something. I received some very good advice from a few friends over dinner a few weeks ago. They reminded me that nothing else matters as long as I am having fun, and feeling good about myself. Seems simple, right? Well once I stopped putting pressure on myself, and went back to just having fun–boom!  I can officially say, that I am working my way back to the hamster wheel. (That is what I call my mind, as it never stops going.) Sometimes all it takes is good friends, a good outfit, and little magic from my girl, Alexandra Gibbs, to put me back on track.

Brunch Beats

brunch 1

I thought I would do a little script flipping today, and give you some music for your Sunday. I am supposed to have brunch with a fellow blogger and friend, and obviously in true Tiffany fashion, I feel as though I have nothing to wear. The first thing I do when I feel I have nothing to wear, is throw some music on, and suddenly my once seeming closet of crap actually turns into something I can work with. I threw together a brunch playlist of some of my fave new tunes, and some of my fave old jams as well. Headed to brunch today? Throw this guy on and I promise you will come up with a great look. Staying in for football Sunday? (#gobrowns) No problem.  Listen to this while you are making your favorite football Sunday snacks. What outfit did I end up wearing to brunch? Keep your eyes on Insta today, and you will find out! Happy listening folks.

PS- If you aren’t already, please follow HT on Spotify, for all of my playlists.

Fall “Bootie” Call

I know, I know it has been a hot minute since I have posted. Blame it on a lot of work and life craziness.  Maybe I have been in a bootie trance. (Get your minds out of the gutter.) A gal can never have too many shoes, let alone fall booties. I have rounded up some of my new favorites for your shopping pleasure. Overall, I am seeing amazing steals and deals from Piperlime, Sole Society, and Nordstrom. I am also thinking of investing in more colored booties this season to give my outfits a little pizazz.  Commit some shoe-icide this week, and go crazy. Heck, if this doesn’t inspire you, nothing will!  xoxo #humpday

 

LBD

Ah, the little black dress, you can never have too many. I recently found myself on a quest for the perfect dress to wear to a wedding, and when in doubt, you always opt for the LBD.  The hubby and I headed back to our old stompin’ grounds in Cleveland, OH this weekend for a wedding, and if you followed my Insta, (@hauteturntable) you can see we had a great time. I was traveling for work the week before, so I needed a no muss, no fuss wedding look that I wouldn’t need to stress about when I arrived to Cleveland. The best news about this little number, is I could obvi throw a bomber jacket over it, and make it a more casual outfit as well. I am all about versatility these days, in an effort to shop smarter. I find myself spending more money on staple items that will work for many occasions and seasons. Now that the wedding is behind us, I can focus on my week of stay-cation I have planned with the Mister! Happy Sunday! xx

PS-Check out Nordstrom and their selection of LBD’s. Their game is tight, y’all.

Plaid

So let’s talk about my obsession with plaid…borderline ridiculous. I have been slowly giving my fall wardrobe a bit of a face lift, while still working in classic staples. This plaid shirt from Rails, is the bees knees. The material is so soft, so the comfort factor is there, yet you can style with anything. (I do mean anything) When headed out to brunch yesterday, I decided to put together a casual look with this new gem, to give it a bit of a test drive. Bury me in plaid. #nailedit.

Shopping for new seasons can be overwhelming, and there is always a new trend or style you feel like you have to be on top of. The key is buying classics so that you don’t break that bank. The only thing new about this outfit is my shirt! Invest in staples!!!
