Style Q & A!

Today I’m answering some of YOUR questions recently… from sneakers, to jeans, to warm sherpa options for fall… let’s dig into your questions!

Q. I’m looking for simple white sneakers that go with jeans and leggings/joggers?

A. There are SO many fun options… here are some that I love for both casual with jeans and more athleisure looks with leggings and joggers. I included all price points so there is truly something here for everyone!

Q. I’m feeling hesitant about making the jump from skinny jeans to straight leg jeans. Which styles should I try? 

A. I have three recommendations that won’t feel like a huge jump in styles but that are also still right on trend. The stovepipe jeans are a very slim straight jean with lots of stretch, they are basically the perfect baby step from skinny jeans. The demi boot crop are another great option. They fit like a skinny jean on the top with a small little flare at the ankle which is so cute with flats and sneakers. Finally, if you want to try a true straight leg jean that is still really easy to wear I recommend the perfect vintage. They are super flattering and comfortable and perfectly modern.

Q. I’m looking for a new sherpa for fall? What cute styles have you seen around?

A. There are SO many and boy, do I love a sherpa. Here are my favorites!

Q. After having babies I need to start my closet over from scratch. I’ve gotten rid of lots of items but what should I add back in?

A. This is so common and you aren’t alone! I had the same experience after I had my kids. I had been pregnant off and on for three years and then transitioned from working full time to staying at home full time. I highly recommend starting a Pinterest board and seeing what styles you are drawn to and use those cues to start. I also highly recommend checking out my Capsule Collections for pieces that mix and match well and also lots of ideas on how to style those pieces. You can see the September capsule here and the October capsule here.

Style Q & A!

 Last week I did a call out on Instagram Stories to ask what you wanted help shopping for this season. I answered the questions in Stories that were most common and I thought it would be fun to share them here as well. You all had lots of questions but the most popular questions were about fall shoes, handbags, what to wear to a fall wedding and cardigans I’m loving right now. I’ve got lots of shopping links for each question below…

Question: What should I wear to a fall wedding?

Answer: This was a super popular question and I have a special place in my heart for fall weddings since my own anniversary is in just a few weeks. Fall weddings tend to be a little more casual and often include an outdoor element. I kept that in mind when choosing dresses for a fall wedding here. I also included a few dressier options as well – and keep in mind it’s also fundraiser season, so many of these would be great for fall fundraiser events too!

Question: I’m looking for a new fall handbag under $300, suggestions?
Answer: Fall is my favorite time to invest in a new handbag. The rich browns and tans are so beautiful this time of year and the selection is great since fall is really big for handbags. Here I chose 9 gorgeous options to choose from whether you like a larger tote, a smaller crossbody or somethings right in the middle. I personally love all of these!

Question: What are your favorite cardigans this fall? 
Answer: I love a cardigan for fall because it’s so versatile to whatever the temps are for the day. You can layer tees and tanks underneath for warm afternoons and a cardigan is always perfect for chilly evenings or over air-conditioned spaces. These are some of my favorites this fall…

Question: Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!
Answer: I had so many questions about fall shoes from boots to flats, to comfort shoes and even sneakers (which I will have to get back to another time). I rounded up the shoes I’m loving most this fall, some of these I own and love and others are on my wishlist. The trends for fall shoes this year are a little outside my comfort zone with a lot of chunky soles and lug boots. I’m going for more feminine and timeless options this fall like flats, mules, loafers and clogs!
