Mixing Prints

It has been so gloomy and rainy here in Pittsburgh over the past few days. One of the nice things about the rainfall is that it finally made the air cool off and I was able to wear this really fun cape trench that No. 14 stocked this spring. This trench is super lightweight and I think the cape-shape gives a classic trench, a trendier update and not braking the bank. I have been loving transitional pieces like this! In the next week or two, I am going to write a post about how to turnover your wardrobe with the seasonal changes. Over the past few days, I have been getting asked a lot of questions about transitioning your wardrobe from summer to fall, when it seems like retailers go from bikinis to outerwear in the drop of a hat, so be on the lookout for that!

I have been really gravitating towards bags that have more structure- I love not having to rummage through my handbag just to look for my lipstick or my phone. Structured bags allow more organization and I love knowing where everything is.  I recently just grabbed this Ivory Prada bag while I was in San Francisco.  Looking for a structured bag on a budget? This Tory Burch Tote is really similar, and I love it in this color as we go into fall. I also love this black one! And this one is under $150 and looks so expensive! 

I have been LOVING Neck scarves recently. If you follow No. 14 on snapchat (no_14lville) You know that I post my #ootd almost daily. The past few days I have been wearing neck scarves and I feel like I just cannot stop! One of my go to's is a basic bandana that I found (literally) in my mom's closet. The one in this post is from No.14 and we are planning on restocking it soon! I also love this polka dot one and this yellow one.

Currently Coveting 

I recently just purchased this Nars Lipstick in color Heatwave, it wears very nicely without drying and is a great orangey-red lip. I also just purchased these leopard pumps and these hot coral strappy pumps from the J. Crew sale. I already owned the Elsie Ankle strap pump in the tiffany blue color and was really excited to get another color. They are so comfortable and add so much sass to an outfit. I have had these illesteva sunnies in my cart for a little while now and am deciding between the gold mirrored or the silver mirrored lenses. Going to have to pull the trigger on one of these soon!
