madewell x sezane.

i really like madewell and their collaboration with french brand sezane is so cool. i love the 14 pieces and the styling is so good. see below for my faves ....

nola satchel - so simple and classic
the haspen sweater - i'd want to wear this all the time. looks so clean and good with white.
thelma shift dress - so easy || front tie booties - how cool with the leopard 
textured scarf - i'm a sucker for a good scarf
nola clutch - the perfect size || ankle wrap booties - these go with everything and have just the right height
la superbe sweatshirt - who doesn't want a comfortable and chic sweatshirt?

blue + white stripes.

shirt: joe fresh (similar here) | jeans: old navy (similar here + here) | booties: steven, old (similar here + here) | bag: alice d | sunglasses: ray-ban

i love stripes and i love button-ups. both classic. paired with black skinnies and ankle booties, it's an easy every day look. put together but comfortable. tuck in the front of one side for a little bit of an edgy look.

black, white + stans.

 blazer: h&m (similar here and here) | tshirt: madewell | jeans: gap (similar here and here) | sneakers: adidas (similar here and here) | sunglasses: ray-ban | watch: casio | necklace: similar

i love white. and yes, white after labor day is totally OK. i actually love white denim in the fall and winter. pair them with sweaters and booties to make them season appropriate. in this case, i wore sneakers because these stan smiths go with every thing (and they're so comfortable). and i threw on a black blazer to make my all white look more fall-ish.

leather jackets.

i'm totally loving the look of black leather jackets right now. i have a faux-leather one and a vintage leather cropped bomber with a fur hood (which is so warm and awesome, i just wish it was a tiny bit longer) but i want more of a classic, biker jacket. these looks show how versatile one can be - you can throw it over a dress or a ladylike outfit (see white outfit below) or mostly what i'm feeling - with jeans and a t-shirt. you kind of can't go wrong with that look. see below for some shop-able options ....

some cool faux and real leather options .... happy shopping!
