A couple of weeks back, I joined up with the team at Maggy London to share my take on office dressing this Fall. I’m always looking for ways to make workwear feel a bit more fun, and with the help of their flattering, on-trend (but still office appropriate) dresses – it felt like such a cinch.
Below – I style 3 dresses for now, when the days are still warm, and later in the fall, when the weather’s cooler. Would love to know which is your favorite! See even more photos from our shoot here and a big thank you to the entire Maggy Londoncrew and @seanmaddenphoto who shot all of these photos.
Paris, 1967 meets New York, 2017. If you guys have been following along for any length of time than you know that the1960’s are my all time favorite era to reference for style inspiration. So when I’m really going for it fashion-wise (and not in my more typical jeans and tee), I usually do a take on that and love looking at style from cities like London and Paris especially during that time. Lucky for me, 60s and 70s references are everywhere for Fall.
Doesn’t the week after Labor Day always feel like you’re going back to school? Despite the fact that I haven’t been back to school in nearly a decade and I don’t have any children I’m walking to the school bus, I never can shake that feeling in early September. And I don’t mind, because it gives me a chance to break out a few classic staples (a fresh white tee, new jacket, backpack…) – just like my parent’s would have bought me before a new school year. While I don’t miss homework, I do slightly miss the days when they were footing that bill.. ha.
One of the things I love most about dressing for Fall is the color. Rich jewel tones, luxe neutrals, and pops of brights. When I spotted Pantone’s predictions for the Fall color trends I was swooning and knew I wanted to highlight a few combos of how to wear them. Below – my favorite combos of the moment, but honestly the options are endless.
If you’ve been reading lately, than you know that my new mindset has become ‘September is the new January‘. Meaning instead of waiting until the new year, I’m using the new season as a spark for setting new goals and trying new things. One of those goals is continuing to find ways to challenge my fitness routine and to help, I’m bringing along activewear from sustainable clothing brand prAna.
