Hi friends! It's been a fun week of LIVE videos on Facebook, connecting with my Mom Bosses, and creating things for our beach house!  Today I even got to have some girlfriends over to shop my closet as I was cleaning a ton of pieces out from style blogging.  I would probably have never planned it if not for reading Present Over Perfect recently - things were definitely not perfect around here, but it was SO fun to spend that time together!

Also did you happen to try the Pear Sauce Recipe I shared this week? Ours is already almost gone!!!

Anthropologie is having a huge sale this weekend for their 25th Anniversary and this round crocodile print cross bodybag immediately caught my eye.

The Best of Burgundy Fashion for Fall and Winter

Fall Fashion, Fashion, Fashion Blog Posts, Handbags, Shoes, sale alertAnneke McConnell

Hi friends! I hope you've been having a great day! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that's where I share more of my fashion finds, and I have to admit, burgundy is having a moment in my opinion.

I've been a fan of the color for years and I think that it is universally flattering on EVERYONE, so it's fun to see how the color is showing up in fashion and home decor alike!

Of all the colors out there, burgundy goes by way more names than any other I've seen.  As I was finding all the burgundy fashion items right now, I found pieces under the name merlot, wine, port, oxblood, acai, dark plum, dark red, deep currant, berry, and more.

It's also a beautiful color that shows up in a variety of patterns and textures, from plaid, crushed velvet, satin, leather, faux leather, suede, and corded, knits, silks, and not to mention the gorgeous jewelry pieces! These plum tassel earrings are probably my FAVE!  I also lean toward simplicity and a good burgundy sweater like this one will always be my go-to. ;-)

If you're a fan of the color burgundy, I hope this helps you find the best for fashion all in one place!  Below is a boutique that shares Fall fashion items such as sweaters, jeans, booties, over the knee boots, strappy heels, chunky heels, workout leggings, scarves, hats, and of course plenty of gorgeous handbags, probably my favorite in the burgundy color!

Happy shopping and happy Fall!

Also! Just a friendly reminder that today is the LAST DAY of the rare Serena & Lily friends and family sale! 20% off sitewide - this chair is a MUST for coastal home decor!

Fall/Winter Style: One Dress Styled Four Ways

Fall Fashion, Fashion, Fashion Blog Posts, Handbags, Styling TipsAnneke McConnell

I'm always looking to mix and match pieces from my wardrobe and give staple pieces a different look depending on how they're paired.  I recently came across this dolman sleeve sweater dress which has a great fit and a little class to it. I love that it's a turtleneck too for these super cold days AND it's a pretty taupe color that goes with virtually everything! #winwin

First things first, it's easy to mix and match when you're staying within the same color palette and I threw in a little color with forest green handbag.  No matter what colors you gravitate toward for your closet, don't apologize for it and then have fun with little pieces here and there or even makeup and nail colors. :-)

 

LOOKS #1: The Dress Solo

Of course you can always go for a more simple look and wear a dress like this by itself.  This also shows you what it looks like as is! Even just adding an accessory like a belt or a statement necklace will do wonders and may be more of the focal point of the outfit.

Below is just a quick change of shoes, from black suede heeled booties (currently on sale) to taupe suede knee high boots (mine are the wide calf version).

 

LOOK #2: A Little Bit of Edge

This might be one of my favorite looks because it's amazing what a bit of texture and contrast can do when creating an outfit.  I love that this faux leather biker jacket comes with a removable hood, so you can create a chic look like this OR just pair it with jeans and a tee for a casual look.

You have the SAME leggings, suede heeled booties, handbag, earrings and choker. Just the jacket was added.

 

LOOK #3: The Cozy Vibe

Now to get a more cozy look, replace that black faux leather jacket for a warm creamy colored turtleneck poncho.  (This comes in black and ivory)

It may seem unlikely that a turtleneck over a turtleneck would work, but in this case it does because the underlayer is thinner than the top layer. :-)

On a side note, I am wearing this poncho with EVERYTHING right now!! Love it, love it, LOVE IT. It's perfect for these colder months!

 

LOOK #4: Neutral Chic

Ok, last but not least. If you're looking for more of the layered shawl look, this leopard reversible poncho is a great one for less than $40. I thought it would overwhelm my 5'3" frame, but I loved it right away! 

I love the fact that it is reversible with the same pattern on both sides, just one lighter and one darker.  Both the tan and black colors pull the taupe dress and black leggings and booties together.

Here is the light colored side.........

One Dress. Four Looks!

 

.....and here is the dark colored side. I LOVE IT!

BONUS!!!

If you're looking to ditch the leggings, opt for an over the knee suede boot like these pair below. These will fit a slightly wider calf too.  Although they didn't make the photo shoot, they're a great option with the subtle detail around the ankle!

I hope this helps you think outside the box when it comes to mixing and matching. Remember to have fun with it and don't overthink your choices!

 

xoxo
