Style trend: utility jackets

style trend comment

Utility jackets |

If you don’t have a utility jacket in your closet, what are you waiting for? It’s a jacket I turn to over and over again during the transitional seasons. It’s definitely a jacket that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I recently spotted this gorgeous garnet colored one and it’s definitely on my radar (hope my size comes back in stock soon!).

Star style: Olivia Palermo

Star style: Olivia Palermo |

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!

The look for less: Victoria Beckham

the look for less comment

Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want… Sorry, that was the 90s calling and it wants one of its songs back. It’s been more than a decade since the rise and popularity of the group The Spice Girls. I’m sure you remember – or have heard of – Victoria Adam (aka Posh Spice). Perhaps, you know her by her married name: Victoria Beckham. Her style has become very refined compared to her girl band days. Even with the simplest of outfits, she makes it stand out with her confidence. Case in point:

I love the light, airy feel of this outfit. Despite it’s simplicity, I think it has a very sophisticated feel. Something about the softness of the silk blouse from Equipment paired with the wide leg trousers from Chloé makes this a very chic outfit. I think this look would work well for a business meeting: consider this similar Milly blouse and these soft blue linen pants from Ralph Lauren. Pair it with a nude heel and some aviator glasses and you’re all set to talk shop. What do you think – would you wear this outfit?

P.S. Don’t forget to join me tomorrow for a new weekly “Style Me Wednesday” fashion link-up! Can’t wait to check out all your fabulous looks!
