cooler weather…

Okay, so now that we all have come to grips with the fact that cooler weather is here we can all love this sale at shopbop.com where we can use code MAINEVENT16 to receive an extra 25% to 30% off. But the sale is for a limited time only so…

cardigan…

I am aware that the cardigan has somehow fallen out of style in the past few years, This is precisely why I am thrilled to see it’s comeback. I mean what’s not to love about it? I can throw it over almost any outfit in this transitional weather, or on a cool summer evening. But really, why not build a whole outfit around a terrific cardigan. I adore this one below at madewell.com…

This one or this one are just as great

trending…stripes

Stripes are everywhere. This season it seems to be about colour but it’s nice to see the black and white back too since I still have some in my closet that I’m not quite ready to get rid of. I love to play with pattern so I’m a huge fan of mixing stripes with other patterns.

I have always loved monochromatic looks. It is so easy to put together and is always an instant hit. Too often this applies to all black – but why not play with other colours… This season in particular maroon is a very hot colour. Here Arielle of somethingnavy.com gets it soooo right.

loving…

With all the plaid that’s trending right now (see yesterday’s post) I thought it would be fun to get into it without fully committing to the trend. After all,  not every style suits all right. If you’re like me and you like plaid but not head to toe plaid then these finds are for you…
