This Jacket is the BOMB.

Bomber jackets are in every window of every store right now and I’ve been wanting to add one to my collection for months but couldn’t decide on a style. WELL. I found this pretty little thing from Closet London and it was exactly what I’ve been missing this whole time!

Also worth mentioning.. A fellow blogger friend of mine posted heels she got at Payless a couple months ago and I was like NO WAY. (Read her post here!) They were so damn cute. So I went there myself a couple weeks ago and found these beauties. They were on sale for about $20 and they are SO comfortable! I wore them to work last week and then I had a charity event and met a girlfriend for drinks, so I walked all over the city basically, in these heels and my feet didn’t bother me at all! It was fantastic, hah. img_5635img_5633

I love bomber jackets because they’re comfortable, and if you find the right one (like this one!) it’ll be really easy to dress up or down depending on the look you’re going for. This jacket would also look super cute with a pair of boyfriend jeans and t-shirt.

I love this ring from Moonstone Magic Jewels! It’s so beautiful up close. It sparkles like there’s a whole little universe in there. I can’t stop staring at it when I put it on. hah.

So I brought Charlotte with me to do these blog pictures and she completely hammed it up for the camera. As per usual! I say this all the time but I think I really need to make her her own blog. Homegirl would kill it. Always stealing the show.

PLEASE disregard her outfit. She had a dress on, got cold, put pants on underneath it, got colder, threw this shirt on over it, found the hat in the back seat of my car.. decided to throw that on too. I’m gonna need to start her a blog so people send her cute clothes, haha!

Day to Night with Closet London

A couple weeks ago (yes, a couple… I am so bad at blogging right now! Yikes!) I showed you guys how I styled this full skirt from Closet London for a day time look. Today I’ll show you guys how to switch it up for a night on the town by just swapping out a few pieces.

I switched out my lace up sandals for some sky high platforms, changed into a crop top, and added a bag with a little more attitude to bring this skirt from day to night. This is the last post from me with light hair! Gasp. I must say though… everyone seems to like me with darker locks. It feels a little bit more… “me.” Like throwback Rachel, if you will. You’ll see. :]

Remember my beloved pockets? Seriously. I love them. I’m a little bit sad that the blog posts are going to feature more layers soon. As in like…. the next thing I post. WAH. I love fall but it’s been a pretty cold one already, right?

Day to Night and so on

Remember my post on Monday talking about smarter shopping? One of my favorite things to do is invest in pieces with versatility and wearability. What I mean is, they can easily be worn from day to night, dressed up or down, with just a few key changes. This full skirt from Closet London may not look like a day time pieces at first, but paired with a simple tank top and sandals it’s an easy look to pull off.

Again, this is a great item to wear to work! My office is more on the casual side so I’d probably wear it this way, if you have more of a fancy schmancy office environment you could opt for a crisp button up or blouse. And you may want to throw on a cropped leather jacket now that the weather is starting to cool off.

img_3772img_3771img_3768

Side note! This skirt also has pockets! Holler. Pockets just make life easier, don’t they? So next week I’ll be showing you guys how I change this look up from office appropriate to out on the town. Check back!

Lady in Red

With my new career I’ve started changing the way I shop. I have to be smarter about what I spend money on and make sure it has a lot of wearability. This little red dress from Closet London stuck out to me because it’s wearable for a variety of different occasions. I can wear this to the office, weddings, holiday parties… pretty much anything!

This dress is so soft! It’s not one of those fits-like-a-glove dresses, which I’m actually pretty happy about. Sometimes I really need a break from sucking in all the time, hah!

img_3129img_3191img_3195img_3199

The ties around the shoulder actually tie, which is lovely because it makes them adjustable! Also, it has pockets. Which is a win in my book. I am a firm believer that everything should have pockets. This dress is going to be perfect to get me through the next few months! I’ll be wearing it A LOT.
