Why I swear by Victoria’s Secret bras

Why I swear by Victoria’s Secret bras

We don’t talk enough about bras. Odd, because it’s an important garment to wear and to make sure you wear the right fit and size. To me bras shouldn’t just be pretty, but they should do what they’re supposed to: give support and hold it all together. I have a larger bust so wearing a good bra is important. After a friend recommended the brand, I switched all of my bras over to Victoria’s Secrets more than 10 years ago. Here’s why.

Jackets & blazer collection

Jackets & blazer collection

After showing you my coat collection last year, I’d been meaning to show you my jackets and blazers as well. I may be more of a cardigan girl, but I love a good jacket as well as a statement piece in my outfit. I last showed you my blazers in 2012 (!!) and needless to say the collection has changed quite a bit. There is only one blazer left from that collection, so it’s high time I showed you an updated version. jackets & blazer collection

Styling over the knee boots

Styling over the knee boots

Over the knee boots are not a fashion item I had tried before. I bought my first pair last winter and in the summer sales I found another pair. I just haven’t been brave enough to wear them. And as with many fashion items that give me the heebie-jeebies, I like to then raid my closet to see how I might wear them. That’s what I did with my two pairs of over the knee boots as well. Lo and behold, it is much more wearable then I initially thought it would be.  styling over the knee boots

Most worn cardigans

Most worn cardigans

My favorite fashion item for the fall time? A cardigan. Preferably a long one and it’s even better if I find it at Urban Outfitters. Why? Because of the 5 cardigans that I’m about to show you in today’s blog post, 4 are from Urban Outfitters. They are my favorite store for a big, oversized chunky knit cardigan and I own quite a few. Yes, that’s right, this isn’t all of them. Just my favorites because I whip these out the most.  most worn cardigans

How I wear houndstooth

How I wear houndstooth

Houndtooth or pied-de-poule is one of my favorite fall time prints. Not sure why, but I veer towards dogtooth when the leaves start to fall. Perhaps it’s because I love pairing it with jewel tones and rich fabrics such as wool and velvet that I bring it out a lot during the fall. In any case, now that fall is here, I know I’ll be busting these items out a bit more again. In this blog post, I will show you three of my houndstooth print items and how I style them up in two different ways.

Styling loafers

Styling loafers

If there is one it shoe of the moment it’s a loafer. I remember when I wore a pair years ago in one of my very first outfit photos on this blog and everyone had a bit of a marmite reaction to them. Some people loved them, others hated them. I have always been on the loving side as I like a bit of granny chic in my style. I think it adds a nice quirky touch, so I have been loving the recent popularity of this easy little shoe. Here’s how I style a pair of loafers.
