STREET SMARTS :: TRANSITION TO FALL

transition from summer to fall

Waking up to cloudy skies this morning, it seems like mother nature is right on schedule with fall this year. On the other hand… it’s supposed to get back up to 80 this weekend. Which means we’re officially in that weird transitional phase in fashion where you’re ready to pull out the sweaters, but not quite […]

    Awesome ideas, especially the flannel + something dainty. I’m always envious of the way they look on others but I always felt too boyish to try to wear them. But I’m totally going to try to pair the flannel with a sweet cami and even maybe add a statement necklace.

GET THE LOOK :: SUNNIES + HEAD SCARVES

head wrap and reflective sunglasses paris fashion week via wwd

I like to give myself goals for every fashion season – something to push me out of my routine and guide some of my purchases and style direction as the weather changes. So for summer? I’m thinking the combination of some really fabulous and bold sunglasses paired with mastering the art of the head scarf […]

    This is such a great idea to set yourself fashion goals for each season and trying to get out of your comfort zone by challenging your fashion routine. I love it and have to think of one myself too. I would probably start with a simple and modest version of the sunnies and scarfs combo. I really like the white hot pair.

    I love the idea of fashion goals! I get intimidated to try new things, and I like the idea of it being a “goal.” I really wanted to get braver about wearing hats this summer, because I love them but they’re not worn a lot. Why is it so hard for me to try a style that is out of the norm?? You inspire me to be more courageous with fashion.

    I always find that little accessory pairings are such a fun way to add a pop of color and a little uniqueness. Making fashion goals is such a great idea, I know that everyone once in a while I need the extra push to be more adventurous with my style.
    Love the retro pair!

    Love it! Perfect solution for my new summer hair that’s too short for a pony. And I’ve been craving some retro shades for a while, what a great excuse to go for it! Thanks for the inspiration!

GET THE LOOK :: THE WHITE SHIRTDRESS

get-the-look---white-shirt-dress-for-spring

There aren’t many pieces in the closet more classic than the white button-up – that I think we can all agree on. But how are you all feeling about the white shirtdress? I remember seeing Leandra bravely rocking hers at fashion week last September and thinking… I love it. But, it takes some guts (and […]

    What timing with this post. This weekend I was watching an interview with an older actress who was wearing one of these with black nylons and all I could think was that it looked like she is missing her pants and when she stands up her undies will show!
    I think a belt would go a long way, however, I do like the one maneater is wearing, the bow is very cute and makes it look more like a dress.

      I’m totally with you – and black nylons would make it look even more strange in my opinion! They are tricky and need to be done really well. The problem with a belt, of course, is that it shortens an already short piece, but there are some nice, longer ones that look less like a large shirt and more like a purposeful dress, which is what I’d lean towards – especially if you’re on the taller side!

THE CHLOE BLANKET… ER, COAT.

hbz-street-style-couture-s2014-paris-36-lg

While stalking the street style coming out of the couture shows in Paris, I instantly fell for this Chloe … poncho? Wrap? Coat? I don’t know even know what to call it. Except awesome. It’s kinda got that Pendleton blanket vibe, right? But, about a million times more chic. The only downside is that I […]

    I’m sorry. It doesn’t matter who’s wearing it. It’s horrible. It’s not flattering and certainly not chic. It’s a blanket pure and simple!

    love it/hate it … love the baby blue but it says blanket/fleece to me and if there’s a fabric I really don’t like .. it must be fleece ..

    So I paused really hard to consider the first image, and I almost *almost* feel like it works, but then I look at the second image and just hate it. As in, “kill it with fire and hot stabbity death” HATE.

    Oh, phew. Got that out of my system.

JANUARY MOODBOARD //

coco kelley winter moodboard

Post-holiday winter is always a bit of a reality check, isn’t it? This is the time of year where I realize that while the holidays may be over, the cold weather is really just beginning. Which, for me, means now that the Christmas decor is all packed away, it’s time for a winter refresh of […]

    Hi Cassandra

    What beautiful images you have shared today. We are enjoying Summer and all it’s wonder in Australia but on those really hot days such pics are very welcome and I am envious of the thought of you dressing in a coat and scarf. You have to love Winter for all it layering goodness. I am also hearting the gold frames and mirrors, such a pop of decadence and shine never goes astray. Bonne Annee’ – Shell A Darlings Nest

    I love that you posted about this Cass, I just had the exact same experience! As soon as we de-adorned our house of the holidays, I had the urge to purge. I rearranged the furniture and wan to get rid of the coffee table, the bar stools – all non essentials… Maybe 2014 will be the year of minimalism… Nah ;)
