A Black and Gold Combo

There's always one piece of jewelry among the new releases at J.Crew that I just have to have. This time around, it's the J.Crew metal medallion necklace. I didn't stand a chance trying to resist this beauty. It's an Art Deco-inspired piece that combines mixed metal geometric shapes, sparkling crystals, and a black leather twisted cord. The necklace is currently 25% off (plus an additional 15% off for educators and students as always) too. In today's post, this new necklace is the perfect accent for this black and gold ensemble.

Blaze the Trail

My fall wardrobe has been begging for a J.Crew Regent blazer. It's sharp. It's sleek. It's fitted. It has a permanently popped collar. The only thing standing between me and one of those toppers is the price. My plan is to patiently wait for the price to fall a bit more. Today's post is inspired by one of the first Regent blazers to hit the sale rack and hence be subject to sale-on-sale pricing.

Tunic Style

I purchased the Anthropologie Mitzie Channeled tunic this time last year and I love it today as much I did back then. It's the chicest tunic ever because of its mixed textures, piping, and pockets. This past weekend, I wore this favorite tunic of mine with a denim jacket, leggings, and my new burgundy suede booties. The result was a look perfect for a day of moving around the city.

Fall Into Black and White

The timeless combination of black and white is a huge trend this fall. From graphic prints to color blocks, just about everything looks chic in black and white. Given black and white's popularity this fall, luxe-looking options are available at every price point. In today's post, I pair two black and white tops from affordable lines to create a fresh print mix. A stripe crop top from JC Penney (now on sale) sits pretty on top of a houndstooth tank from H&M (only $7 in-store).
