Falling into the trenches

Well,  that was a cheesy post title but I've never claimed to be good at catchy titles. This outfit does incorporate a trench and a fall colored pencil skirt, along with one of my go to button down blouses. I bet I can't even count how many times or ways I've worn this shirt. That would probably make a fun post to round up all the ways. It's a little difficult to find sleeveless trenches to link up, but this trench vest would look equally well with a pencil skirt and make other cute fall outfits.
 
You may notice something wrong with my right eye. I have had "inflammation" in it for the past week. It actually started a week prior with a sinus infection, cleared up then came back after the sinus infection was gone. The doctor says it is not infected, but it's inflammation. Other than the sinus infection, I can't really find a cause. Sometimes this condition is linked to other inflammatory conditions in the body but I don't have any of those. Nonetheless, I have had this red, sometimes painful eye for a week. It is beginning to get better, but I'd appreciate a few prayers for full healing.

Power suit with edge

blouse- Nordstrom  similar
belt- Target  option
necklace- Rocksbox  option
shoes- Ann Klein  similar
 
I wear this black suit a lot, but I hesitate to post it on the blog each time. How many times do you need to see the black power suit? It has its benefits- it's conservative, it's easy to throw on and go and almost anything goes with it. I decided to share it this time because I wanted to show you that you can add a little color and edge and still be professional.  I added this spike necklace and snakeskin belt. The blouse adds a pop of color.
 
Hope your week is going well.

More neutrals for fall





Blazer- old option  option  option
top-JCP old  option  option  option
pants- Loft
belt- Belk  option
shoes- Payless  option  option
necklace- JCrew Factory  option  option
 
One of the easiest ways for me to shift from summer to fall is to shift to neutrals. Even when the calendar says fall, sometimes full on fall color doesn't seem right when it's still hot.
 
 This top is one of my favorites but hasn't been worn in a while. It's the perfect top to switch between work and casual with its ruffle cap sleeve, especially when the temps are still warm. See how I wore it with shorts here.
 
I tried to keep this from being too boring by going with the cognac heels instead of black. If you want to be a little more trendier, try this block heel pair. Block heels are in this fall.

Happy Fall Ya'll

Happy Fall! I think we are all waiting for some cooler temps and a chance to change up the wardrobe. Fall is finally here on the calendar. We've still got highs on the 80's but today is actually a nice day with a cool feel to it so I'm hopeful.
 
I actually wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago when I caved to social media pressure to start wearing fall items. All of these pieces have been in my closet for a few years. Ruffles are a return trend for this fall, so I'm ready with my button up ruffle blouse in browns and rust. I'm not as crazy about ruffles as I used to be but I'm glad I kept this top. (See how I've worn it before HERE.)
