Moments Of Chic

It's no secret that I am crazy about juxtaposition in fashion: oversized sweaters with short-shorts or skin-tight skinnies, leopard print with stripes, black leather with blush chiffon - the list goes on and on. My most beloved example though, has always been lace with denim. I'm a sucker for flirtatious feminine pieces paired with a touch of masculine edge, and lace paired with denim proves to be a dynamic duo for achieving that look. So, needless to say, when Piperlime selected this look for me to share as part of their Moments of Chic campaign, I was over the moon!



For multiple reasons, Piperlime has always been on my short list of online retailers I frequent: they're on the cutting edge of style, having all of my favorite designers in one place, and they cater to fashionistas in a wide range of budgets. (I have to admit though, choirs of angels go off -in my head, anyway- whenever they have a sale.) I just love their tips on how to rock the season's hottest trends, and their aesthetic is always so effortless and put together.

For me, "chic" comes in a number of forms and can be defined in a multitude of ways. Today's look takes a "less is more" approach on chic, by keeping the shoes and accessories simple to highlight the already fabulous lace top and denim jeans. 

When you start with a good base, you really don't have to add too much to have your moment of chic.

Happy Monday!

Hats: Part 2

It's hard for me to decide which I love more, my trusty fedora or, the new kid on the block, this wool felt hat. 

Yesterday's look offered an effortless on-the-go Fall look, by pairing these leggings and tee with gold slides and a Fedora. Today's look is all about comfy-chic, and these SS wedges and Wool Felt Hat take this outfit from "socially acceptable pajamas" to "pinot's on a patio" appropriate attire.

Hats: Part 1

If you've been following me a for a while, you're probably already keenly aware of my affection for hats. It seems this Fall that my hat collection just keeps growing! (I've even created a hat-monster out of my husband!) 

Besides masking the all-to-often-occurring "bad hair day", hats are a great way to add character to any outfit. They instantly add personality and can completely change any look. 


Come back tomorrow to see how I styled this exact look by switching out the hat and shoes. Be sure to let me know which one's your fave. xx

Leather + Lace

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like people don't dress up enough. I decided to change that last weekend when we headed out for a sushi date.

I wore this Lovers + Friends dress to the GLAM Media dinner in NYC for NYFW and have been dying for an opportunity to wear it again. That opportunity hadn't come, so I took matters into my own hands and created the opportunity. #missionaccomplished

By the way, don't you just love this green vegan leather jacket? I got it last season, but can already tell it's going to be a Fall 2014 staple.

Happy Friday!

Btw - make sure you're following along with me on Instagram this week as #behrsgotosandiego! It's Bran's 30th birthday week, so I surprised him with a trip to the beach! (I've been planning it for months and he had no idea!) I'm also working on a super fun travel diary collaboration with LuLu*s, so stay tuned for that!
