the cropped wide-leg





turtleneck: UNIQLO // pants: COS // bag: Barneys New York // shoes: Danielle // shades: Céline

Switching from my usual fitted skinny pant to a more relaxed silhouette, the cropped wide-leg. It’s chic, yet comfortable and sophisticated. I noticed everyone was wearing variations of the cropped wide-leg in Italy while visiting over the holidays. You know what they say, when in Rome…  So, I picked up this wool-blend jersey knit from COS and love the fit!

high collar






sweater: Mango // vest: Zara // pants: Vince // earrings: COS // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim 

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! It’s cold and icy in Chicago, so layers and heavy knitwear are a must. I picked up this high collar sweater in Italy last week and absolutely love it! It’s been on repeat these past few days.

midi dress






dress: Zara // clutch: 3.1 Phillip Lim // heels: Zara // earrings: Tiffany & Co. 

I wore this dress to an event Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted something with long sleeves, clean lines and mid-length. You know, it’s November and dressing for formal events can be difficult in the winter. Though, I love everything about this dress! It’s comfortable, chic and easy to style. I added a pop of snakeskin and kept my accessories simple.

suited for fall





trench: Burberry // sweater: Madewell // jeans: Armani Exchange // shades: Prada // moccasin boots: Isabel Marant Étoile

This fall has been unseasonably mild for Chicago – no complaints from me! Though a warmer and water-resistant trench is a versatile option to get your through the chillier days ahead. I just added this one to my closet, mostly because of the button-out quilted liner and detachable hood. So, it’s perfect for both warm and chilly temperatures. A win-win all around!

Runway Legging





cashmere sweater: Uniqlo // scarf: True Religion // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // leggings: True Religion // boots: Prada 

I picked up these coated denim leggings and scarf last week when I attended the Michigan Ave. True Religion event. Their fall/winter collection has so many great pieces, but I just loved the fit of these ‘Runway Leggings’. Not only do they fit like a glove, but they’re comfortable and they look like leather. So, I decided on a neutral v-neck cashmere sweater and classic black booties to keep my look feeling polished, but with a bit of edge.

stand collar coat





coat: Uniqlo // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // turtleneck: Uniqlo // pants: Armani Exchange // shoes: Merona // bag: Barneys New York 

I love the clean A-line shape and high collar of this coat that I picked up last week at the Uniqlo pre-opening event. It’s the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe and it’s a soft blend of cashmere and wool. As much as I dislike colder weather, I do enjoy the heavier textures, colors and accessories that go along with it.

white + black





shirt: Banana Republic // pants: Vince // shades: Prada // shoes: Vince // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim

Black and white is a great timeless go-to look. I’m loving the clean lines and sheer details on this shirttail –  a great alternative to a basic button-down. Oh, and did I mention I’m growing my hair out! I’ve had various pixie cuts for over 10 years, and now it’s time to try a short bob!

sleeveless turtleneck





knitwear: Banana Republic // pants: Vince // shoes: 3.1 Phillip Lim // bag: Barneys New York

I’m generally not big into trends, but I’m loving the sleeveless knit turtlenecks and backpack bags I’m seeing everywhere this fall. These are both great staples, and will transition well into winter and even spring (if you live in Chicago, all these seasons generally feel the same). I decided on a classic pointy flat and simple accessories.

transition wear





shirt: Mango // pants: Old Navy // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim // shoes: Vince 

It’s not always easy deciding what to wear in between seasons. Temps are all over the place, and how many layers and shoes can you really fit into your work bag? Lately, I’ve been choosing neutral colors, flowy fabrics and comfortable shoes. Keeping it simple and versatile. What are some of your favorite pieces to wear this time of year?

Anjolee | diamond eternity ring







dress: Armani Exchange // ring: Anjolee – diamond eternity // bag: COS // shoes: Vince Camuto // earrings: Tiffany & Co. 

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to create a custom ring through Anjolee. They are an online jewelry retailer offering customized pieces, made from diamonds, precious metals and gemstones. I was excited to look through all of their jewelry, and decided on this diamond eternity ring. All of their pieces can be customized according to preference of diamond, gemstone quality, carat size and metal. I submitted my ring size and gemstone preference (diamond/cz).  My experience with Anjolee was wonderful and the whole process took just a couple of weeks for my made-to-order ring to arrive at my doorstep.

This post was a collaboration with Anjolee. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting collaborations with Taffeta and Cedar!
