It's probably not expected, but I find fall to be the best time to embrace more of your dressier looks; it's still warm enough to wear skirts, but not too hot for leather components, like dressy blouses and, my favorite, pretty jackets. Once winter hits, we really don't get have any other choice but to bundle up, so I try to take advantage of it while I can.
Cooper & Ella is a line of strictly blouses, which came about when founder Kara was on the hunt for the perfect 'date blouse' and couldn't find one (who can relate to this?!). The collection is made up of super flattering, on-trend and affordable blouses that any woman would feel comfortable and confident in. Components like a deep V neckline, zipper detail and a (mostly) neutral color pallet keep things simple and make Cooper & Ella an easy, one-stop-shop for wearable blouses that work for any occasion, day or night.
Paired with my favorite leather skirt and new pumps, a simple and chic blouse was all I needed to attend to complete the look for the DC Magazine party a few weeks ago, where we celebrated my good friend, Sara, as she was named a "Woman of Style" by the magazine - So exciting! So, can we talk about these shoes for a minute? I discovered Secondi consignment shop after featuring my closet at the latest District Closets event (where shoppers can shop the closets of their favorite, DC bloggers) which was held there. It was after a long day of work, after back to back events, that I would find my best consignment find ever - Yves Saint Laurent, lace-up pumps. With tassels! I left one happy girl. Thank you, Secondi and District Closets, again for having me!
P.S. We are hosting a fun style event tomorrow at the Nordstrom at Pentagon City Mall to celebrate 1 year of TOPSHOP! Swing by from 1-3PM for styling sessions with yours truly, a jammin' DJ, givaways, a photo booth, and yummy treats..Plus a free tee with purchase for the first 50 guests! We will also be taking over their Instagram for the day, so be sure to follow along, #TOPSHOPxTFB.
