Lay It on Thick.... Or Thin

Its that time of year. Snow. Rain. Wind. Colder-than-average temps... its tempting to pull out the tweed, cashmere, and chunky knits and let your favorite spring and summer  pieces go by the wayside. Well, before you pack away your favorite pieces and pine for warmer climes, try layering pieces in your wardrobe for a look that's a little unexpected and best of all.... seasonally appropriate!

How to Transition a Summer Dress

Start with....

A blouse like this navy plait-shouldered blouse from Vila...


A summer dress like this striped one from Almari...

Top it off with...
A cozy zippered faux fur vest like this one from Vince Camuto...

For finishing touches...season it up with....

Gray herringbone knit tights like this pair from The Gap..... and some ankle boots like this interesting pair from Aldo.

Come Through in the Clutch

A clutch is chic. Bold. Front-and-center. It instantly elevates any look.... but let's be honest... in the middle of shopping, working, or running errands...or even holding a plate of appetizers at a chic soiree, what's a girl to do when she needs both hands free. Never fear, The convertible clutch is here! If you need to go hands free, just pull out the strap!

 The Juliana Convertible Clutch from Banana Republic is a sizeable yet chic option, large enough for those days where you need to carry your tablet on the go.
