Knit-Knacks

Alas! Fall is here and nothing says Autumn like knits & booties. Now, I usually don't do knits. I'm very chesty and feel they makes the girls look super huge and round. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, but it makes me feel a little self-conscious. However, this grey beauty by Mango has swayed my thoughts a bit.  

On to the Fit:

I scored these amazing Chinese Laundry, cut-out booites at T.J. Maxx and have been living in them ever since. They go with everything and are so comfortable. I feel when you have such an oversized/slouchy sweater like this one you should definitely stick to more structured accessories. For example a structured bag, it really cleans up and polishes the look.  This combination is so cozy and warm and very inviting. Dont you wanna talk to me? Just playiiiinnn...

I love pairing shades of grey and brown. Again, my younger self would have never thought the two shades complimented each other, but that is why you live and you learn. I look back sometimes and shake my head at that girl. What was she thinking?! 

As I continue to blog and try pieces that "i'd never wear" or  thought I "couldn't wear" because they aren't flattering for my body type, I'm learning to TRY THINGS ON FIRST. I'm hard-headed, I hate trying on clothes believe it or not, but my size varies depending on fabric and cut. So yes, I have too. We all have too. At least, before we rule certain styles out of our life forever. 

Zae's Fall checklist: (To Start)

  • Knits that Flatter 
  • Basic tops for under those knits!
  • Cut-out booties
  • Boyfriend Jeans 
  • Structured Satchel/Tote
  • Color is great- but start off with neutrals! Then explore. ;)
  • SOCKS! (Go crazy with color)
  • Leather Jacket (Because DUH!)
  • COFFEE (Again, because duh)

 

See No Mani :(

Let's Catch Up & Cool Off!

Hi My Loves!

Forgive me for my hiatus! Fashion week was legit cray. I worked a few of the shows and literally got home super duper late almost every single night. It was so worth it, though! I got to reconnect with friends and also meet some really cool people. Like Waldo. Yep. From the famous children's book, "Where's Waldo". Last Tuesday, I spent the afternoon at shows with my best friend Kate and as we were leaving Lincoln center, there he was. So naturally, I had to get a pic with him and Kate snapped it for me! The insanely funny part is that, that photo landed me a spot on Buzz Feed, which is one of my favorite sites. It's super funny and I'm just glad I didn't look completely awkward. LOL

Okay, enough of my 10 seconds of fame and on to the 'fit. 

Fall is about to commence! So, I put together this little ensemble that is really easy to recreate and perfect as we move into cooler temperatures. Which, I love by the way. All of my friends frickin love summer and I'm just like, can I wear my jackets all year round?- and I do.

What I do love about summer is the abundance & availability of crop tops. I feel they have certainly become a staple in my closet- perfect for pairing with high-waisted any & everything YEAR ROUND. Like this little skater skirt and patterned pumps and let's face it- you can't go wrong with a leather jacket. However, this look is super versatile- swap out the pumps for your favorite boots/booties and maybe even play around with socks (Knee-high, Over-the-Knee, tube socks). The possibilities are endless. Have fun with it! 

Love hearing your feedback! How would you re-vamp this look? Let me know in the comments below! Talk to you soon loves!

Ciao, for now.
