I’m not much of the outdoorsy type, but I can’t help but fall in love with one of the biggest trends this season: camouflage.  The army-inspired print is instantly toughens up any look, but still feels modern and playful.  Check out a few of my favorite camo pieces, which are way more chic than your average surplus goods.

As an Arizona girl living in NYC, fall is a bit of a strange season to me.  I’m used to the weather going from scorching to freezing in a matter of two weeks, which is why I’m completely unprepared for an entire season dedicated to transition.  I’m on the hunt for a new jacket to keep cozy while the temps slowly drop and the moto jacket is on the top of my list.  Check out a few of my favorite options and let me know which ones you’d rock!

1. Express (Minus the) Leather and Moleskin Moto Jacket
2. BB Dakota Johs Faux Brown Leather Moto Jacket
3. Forever 21 Street-Chic Moto Jacket

Wonder leopard calf hair skinny belt; Gigi Taylor saddle pebble leather tote; Michael Kors tortoise boyfriend watch; Madewell maroon oxblood vintage inspired bracelet; DV by Dolce Vita Helia gold chevron sandal wedge; zeroUV designer inspired tortoise oversized sunglassesGetting around town is one of the easiest, yet most challenging aspects of living in NYC.  Everything is in “walking distance” — my definition of which has increased from a few blocks to a few miles since I’ve moved here.  To adapt, I try and create versatile outfits — looks that work while running around town for brunch, coffee, and errands.  To me, comfort will always come first, but that doesn’t mean utility and creativity are mutually exclusive.

fall essentials: black & white.

Bright colors will always be my jam, but lately, I’ve been gravitating more towards black and white.  The combo is effortlessly sophisticated.  It’s chic on its own, or the perfect canvas for a pop of color (see yesterday’s outfit for proof).  Check out a few of my favorite black and white pieces and let me know how you style up the color duo.

fall essentials: moody florals.

Last weekend, I stored away most of my bright summer pieces while pondering how I could continue to incorporate my favorite prints through the rest of the year.  While my fall outfits will likely involve faux leather or leopard, floral prints will still stake a claim in this season’s wardrobe.  The difference: I’m reaching for moodier florals in darker colors and edgier details.  Check out a few of my favorite fall florals and let me know what you think of these transitional pieces.
