To start this monday off on the proper foot, I would like to state that indeed, school and street style have taught me one thing.

 That the idea of wearing your trainers with anything other than athletic wear seems far out and would end up as one of Glamour's Don'ts. In the midst of my classes and pursuing Tommy and other camera wielded superstars, the combination of sneakers with a skirt, then dressed back down with your best t-shirt, creates that effortless look we all long for the minute we step into our closet. Plus, quirkier details like a silk scarf bring in color and some details. You see, it is a complex fashion formula of wearing sneakers and avoiding "Tacky Tally" territory. In short:

Sneakers will forever and always be your best friend. 

And in this case, if it cross your mind that I'm missing school, you've thought wrong (long live summer!). Yet, ironically, I am learning math navigation for sailing as I type. School (plus, style.com) never leaves you.

On My Radar

Last night, I realized that I haven't done one of these posts in a long time. I have been getting in my fair share of spring shopping but these are some of the items on my running wish list and what I've been gravitated towards in general. Joie's

sandals

are perfection and are a match made in heaven with  

Heidi Merrick's

neutrals. I am a big fan of

Clare Vivier

bags and think this large tote would be perfect for travel. Please share with me what you are coveting this week. Shop all the items below:

This week is my favorite week

ever.

 It's totally okay to start playing Christmas music, eat all the food that you want, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday festivities. On the other hand, it is becoming very cold, hence the tights I'm sporting in today's post. (

they're fleece lined

) I don't mind the cold that much because it just means cozy layers galore. This outfit has become a favorite of mine; high neck top and a printed skirt. It is a little dressy but still is easy and comfortable. Shop similar options of my favorite pieces below. I would love to know what your plans are this holiday week.

Fall Styling // J.Crew Classics Part 1

       J.Crew Chambray // J.Crew Denim vest // Rag & Bone jeans (old)
 // Joie loafers // Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses

Happy Tuesday! I am still in shock it's already September- and I start school tomorrow. Crazy! To kick of fall fashion, my blogger bud Caroline from citrus & style and I will be styling two of our favorite J.Crew pieces. Today, we are wearing the infamous chambray shirt which is a definite must for everyone.  

There is countless ways to style the shirt. Here,I went for more of a casual look. I love to play with the different denim washes of the top, vest, and jeans for a cool look. If you will be rocking head to toe denim, it's key to have different washes. Overall, the chambray shirt can be dressed up and dressed down. Be sure to see how Caroline styled her chambray shirt! Stay tuned to next week to see what J.Crew classic we style next- it's going to be good!  

Btw-isn't the view from the lighthouse at Castle Hill in Newport amazing? Be sure to check the blog tomorrow for a recap of my last summer weekend.  



Not So Basic

I was doing a little bit of Fall shopping at Madewell and J.Crew and came across this simple a-line  skirt. It's a chic staple piece that can be worn all year round in many different ways. If you have been reading fashion blogs this past Spring and Summer, you may have seen the "trend" black and white everywhere. Personally, I don't think black and white is a trend, but instead a simple and chic color combo. I decided to wear the B&W look with a white blouse and throw in fun accessories for a not so basic look.

Speaking of J.Crew my blogger bud, Caroline from citrus & style and I are collaborating this Fall to bring you some stylish outfits showcasing our favorite pieces from J.Crew! We are so thrilled for the series and we hope you will enjoy it!
