Block heel | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

With the trend of athleisure and comfy kicks in high gear, it’s only natural that heels go that route, too. Block heels are making their emergence this season as the alternative to the stiletto. What’s not to love? It helps to elevate an outfit with the ladylike silhouette but also, has comfort built in with the chunky heel. So, grab a pair and style it with your daytime, nighttime, or weekend look!

Star style: Olivia Palermo

Star style: Olivia Palermo | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Summer is quickly making its exit and ready to replace it is Fall. Personally, I am trying to hold onto the long, lazy days and not yet ready to welcome the new season. But, to help ease the transition, we can turn to Olivia Palermo’s outfit as inspiration for the new season. Her effortless summer casual look is perfection: pairing a Frank & Eileen white button down with some stylish (and inexpensive!) tropical print shorts and Westward Leaning shades. Comfort is the name of the game and her Pretty Ballerinas leopard-printed flats do just that. A colorblock Céline clutch does the job to hold her essentials as she walks her cute dog.

Inspired by Olivia’s look? Try this crisp white shirt with the same green shorts and these cozy leopard ballet flats. This great colorblock clutch can also double as a small handbag. Put on these sunglasses and you’re all ready for a cool transition for Fall!

My last day in New York was spent consuming food at my favorites (hello, Shake Shack and Grimaldi’s!). It’s a good thing I don’t live there as I’m sure I’d be frequenting them at an unhealthy rate! The trip ended at the Brooklyn Promenade which is perfect for catching views of the Statue of Liberty, downtown Manhattan, and the Brooklyn Bridge. Here’s a video the husband made that captured of the sights and sounds of the city – hope you enjoy!

P.S. Link-up alert! I will be teaming up with Katie from Style on Target and Sarah from Shades of Sarah all next week to share our favorite skirts and how we style them! Can’t wait for you to join us and show us your looks!

The look for less: Emma Stone

the look for less comment

Emma Stone seems like the all around cool girl. Not only does she have fantastic style but she is also a fantastic actress, with pivotal roles in movies such as The Help and Spider-Man. She has a great looking boyfriend and who couldn’t love her after this performance?

Recently, she was photographed in a head-to-toe ensemble from Valentino. She wore a color-block, pleated dress from the Valentino Fall RTW (Ready to Wear) 2014 collection which she paired with some Rockstud caramel-colored pumps.

This entire ensemble is a marriage of ladylike flare meets edgy rocker. Create a similar look at a fraction of the price by pairing this button-down chiffon shirt with this colorblock skirt. These pumps from Michael Kors are a great alternative to the Valentino studded heels. Lastly, add on some cool shades and you’ll feel just as cool as Ms. Stone!
