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.

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!!!

Fall Denim

Oh hey there, don’t mind me…just shopping for my latest pair of fall denim.  It is that time of year where we need to reevaluate a few things in our wardrobe to ensure our fall game is tight. These are some of my fave pairs as of late. Denim is one of those things where I will always encourage a splurge. Denim is a staple. You should put on those pair of jeans and feel like a million bucks every time. Do not compromise that. You are fierce, so embrace it. Click on the items to shop directly!

Cropped

When I thought about what another great transition outfit might be for the pre-fall and puzzled fashion goers,  I settled on this vintage cropped trench, and wide leg denim. I have a strong crush on the strong femininity of wide leg denim, and kept is casual on top. I guess some might say, business on the bottom, party on the top. (#corny) I know that I sound like a broken record, but the key to a good transition outfit is layering!  Shop a similar look below by clicking on the photos.

Happy Monday everyone! I am still in Chicago, but switching gears to work mode, instead of friend mode. I love the city of Chicago. It is so effortlessly amazing. Speaking of effortless, this shirt dress is so effortless, and a great staple for those pre fall temps. Shirt dresses add a little casual chic into your wardrobe, and this color is a great way to say what’s up to fall, yet you may not be ready for tights yet. Pair with a patterned shoe, and you are ready to go! Hashtag= #boom.

Happy #NYFW guys! Fashion week always excites me in NY–the time of year when everyone comes together for the love of fashion! This past long weekend, I ventured out of the house very minimally. I must admit I was a little bit of a hermit due to the muggy temps, as well as just decompressing from work travels. My homegirl Alexandra Gibbs and I decided to venture to Williamsburg for a photo shoot, amidst my laziness.  This is the time of year for transition outfits. The ever annoying time where one goes to their closet perplexed by what to wear, as summer is over, yet it isn’t quite fall. This is one of my fave transition outfits, because it can go from day to night. Throw booties on with any outfit, and you are in glamville.  I went shopping in my closet for this one, and did some digging around. It is so fun when you re discover pieces you forgot you had. It is like finding 20 bucks in your pants pocket. Shop a similar look to this below.

PS-I’m headed to Chi-town to spend some much needed time with my ladies from Ohio. Girl time is always needed–especially when you working like crazy, and spread about the country. Girls night out coming up soon? I have just the playlist. Check that out below, and don’t forget to follow me on Spotify. Seriously, sign up and just follow me–I promise I won’t let you down. (Keep your eyes glued to Insta and Twitter for my weekend in Chicago!) xx {photography courtesy of Alexandra Gibbs}

 

Dark Florals

I know, I know, apologies are in order. I have been traveling and working hard at my job that pays the bills recently, and I promise never to leave you again! Ok, let’s move on…dark florals. I am obsessed with this new trend for fall, and cannot wait to get my paws on some of these fantastic prints. Dark florals are really the perfect way to add some sexy femininity to the otherwise neutral color palette for fall. I am all about what’s on tap for fall, so keep your eyes here for more of my favorite fall trends. I have been digging Piperlime as of late for floral trends. I am also working on some new playlists, so there is so much to look forward to! Grab your pumpkin spice lattes, and dust off your trench coats–fall is coming! {Click on the images for clothing details.}

There is so much happening in this post, I don’t even know where to begin. I am starting to slowly transition my wardrobe into fall. (just the tip, if you will.) It all started this past weekend when I purchcased this fab new denim from Rag & Bone.  I swear, every single time I go in there, I want everything.  With this pair, I fell in love with the zipper. What is the best way to showcase new denim? Throw your favorite white tee on, and you are good to go. I think I am slowly getting ready for fall. Keep your eyes here, and Twitter and Instagram for more fall wardrobe behaviors.

You know how sometimes you see a piece of clothing and you immediately connect with it? That is exactly how I felt about this amazing graphic tee from Nasty Gal.  Not only does it reference one of my favorite hip hop duos, but it incorporates my two loves-music and fashion. The amazing thing about this tee is it is so versitile, which as you guys know, is very important to me. You can wear this with your favorite pair of denim and heels as seen here, or even pair it with your favorite pencil skirt and a jacket. No matter what, I promise it will add the right dose of  ‘tude to any outfit. For all my single ladies out there, wear this out to Starbucks to pick up coffee, and I will bet someone will stop to compliment you. (Oh and PS- that means they are an Outkast fan, so double bonus!) Shop my outfit below, while also listening to the obvious.
