Why I Can’t Stop Wearing This Fall Staple

It’s finally that time of year again.

You know what I mean.

OMG Pumpkin Spice Lattee & Riding Boots!!!

Record scratch – hold it right there.

PSL’s and riding boots are all good (if you’re into that) but beautiful fall fashion & accessories come from a place of simplified elegance. I believe in styling oneself in a minimal but impactful way.

I want to share with you one staple style item that will serve you well this fall – not only will it keep you cozy but it looks beautiful in a very simple way.

Back in August I had the chance to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In one of my Instagram stories try on sessions, I tried this cozy twist knot fleece pullover and got so many of you saying how cute it was. So naturally, I had to get it!

This fleece pullover is the coziest top I own. And that says a lot considering I own a lot of cozy tops! During the anniversary sale, I choose this grey color over the 6 others avaliable. All the colors were very pretty but here’s a big tip:

What I really love about this sweater is the fabric. Fleece is so comforting because it feels amazing against the skin. It keeps you warm without being scratchy or itchy (like wool). The little knot detailing is a cute twist on a trend we are seeing a lot this year. It gives it that hint of trendiness without being too overwhelming.

One of the things I believe in is effortless elegance and simplicity in everyday looks. Instead of wearing big and loud statement pieces, I would rather go for just a hint of a statement. For one, it doesn’t distract from your beautiful personality, but magnifies it. While a very loud apparel piece may predispose someone to make an assumption about your personality.

This sweater says = I’m cozy but modern.

This is a great sweater to dress up or dress down. You can pair it with jeans for a casual look or wear it over a dress, with a skirt, for a more refined look.

I went for a casual look today with my Paige denim skinny jeans and Calson black booties. I got both of these items at the sale.

  • What do you do when you want to pack light but like a lot of outfit changes? 🤔👗 Why, still pack all the outfits, of course! 😀

Ok, i know, unrealistic, right? But it is possible! On my last trip I packed a whole weeks worth of outfits in a carry on - new outfit each day too. It was such a great success that I decided to write about what packing tips have helped me the most. And please, none of that "get this new suitcase" stuff 😂 Any old suitcase will do!

  • My photographer thinks that this particular pose reminded them of pictures of vintage hollywood stars. Also calls this the “Princess Margaret” because it’s a pose she did that we took inspo from. What do you think?

Being timeless is not just about what you wear, it’s an attitude 💄🕶

In middle school & high school I wore berets, trench coats, and loved everything vintage. I was the odd one out. But now I embrace a really timeless wardrobe. It’s classic, simple, but still glamorous.

The dress I’m wearing here was from @modcloth - several years ago (but it still fits like a charm). The camera, however, is not reproduction. Authentic vintage circa 1930s/40s.
  • I'm all for accessories that look expensive but are in fact, such a steal. This beautiful purse for example? $24! Don’t you just love things that look expensive but aren’t?

Looked gorgeous for the rosé terrace event. I was surrounded by luxury handbags and all I could think was "oh my goodness, this purse looks even better"

  • There's a rule for the Printer's Row Lit Fest: If it doesn't rain at least one day of the Lit Fest, it's not a proper Lit Fest! And rain means good luck.

And what luck I've had meeting my new friends at @thecoopersouthbank - a new residential property opening up near the Chicago River's south branch! I just checked out their tent, learned about their amazing property (it's gonna have many amenities & things to do), and of course, checked out some books! #thecoopersouthbank #ad
--
Stop by their tent: JJ and check out all the wonderful books for sale, learn about their artistic roots in Chicago, and grab a tote so you can pile dozens of books into - believe me, you'll need it!
-
How many books do you think I'll buy today? 10? 20? Who knows....

Spent the loveliest afternoon at the Roses & Rosé Garden Rooftop party at @thegwenchicago - If you’re local (or just visiting) make sure to check out this hotel! It was the perfect Rosé party with delicious foods all made with Rosé!
—
It’s beautiful. The words I would use to describe it is simply luxurious. The interiors are sophisticated but subtle with deep colors & metallic accents. The rooftop was spacious yet very cozy. I secretly wanted to take home the chair I was sitting in! 😂 Don’t think I would have gotten too far.

I had so much fun dressing up for this event. I wanted to show you my lace dress but I ended up taking this close up instead 📸 My lace dress is linked in my bio & if you watch my stories, you can see my whole look!

  • Probably looking at pictures of cats 🐈
--
But when I'm not looking at cats, I'm working 📸. Eternally grateful I can use my iPhone to take quality photos for myself and my clients. I say this all the time and i'll say it again: you do NOT need an expensive DSLR to take pretty pictures for your blog or business. Practice, hone in on an editing style, and play around with light. The more you practice, the better you'll get.

Phone accessories like tripods, and ring lights can help. But you really only need one thing - a case! Sometimes when I'm trying to take the perfect flatlay shot, I drop my phone 😱 Thankfully, I have a strong and beautiful case to protect it 🙏🏻
--
The case pictured here is a Hailee x iDeal Case @idealofsweden in Striped Rose (how very vintage and Bijou!). Right now, my readers can get 20% off this case with code: HAILEEXUS
