I am a sucker for the fall hues; burn oranges, chocolate browns, neutrals… they are all so very easy on the eyes. At least for me, anyway. I’m usually in head to toe black about 9 months out of the year, summer included, but these few months I love to pepper in a little of these earthy colors throughout my wardrobe.
Fun fact about this moto jacket… I had a similar one from Hollister that I LOVED! It was my go-to jacket for pretty much every outfit, but the fact that it was faux leather meant it didn’t have a long shelf life. It started to crack and peel a few months ago and my mom made me throw it away, haha! She was embarrassed for me… so I was on the hunt for a similar style that I could fall just as in love with and I found it within minutes during a trip to South Moon Under. The belt around the bottom is an added bonus as well, it makes me feel just a touch more badass. It fits like a glove, it’s comfortable and warm. Well worth the seriously low price tag of just $128! *steal*
I’m in love with these pants! I didn’t think I would be because they’re so different from anything I’ve ever worn, but they’re comfortable and they’re fun. They feel like a skirt but they’re pants so you don’t have to worry about any Marilyn Monroe moments. All in all, my fall wardrobe is growing on me this year. I thought I would miss the bare skin and laid-back approach to my summer style but you may just have a changed woman on your hands.
I wore a leather jacket last night and it annoyed the hell out of me. It’s May… I’m ready to ditch all of my layers and wear nothing but light dresses, skirts, crop tops, sandals, bathing suits… I’m over the layers, I tell you. OVER IT! This maxi dress from Shein is pretty perfect for the weather right now. Layers need not apply.

I have a feeling high slits are going to be my thing this summer. This dress, and another I can’t stop wearing, have the double high slits and I’m in love with it. Makes me feel all kinds of daring and fabulous, hah.
I’ll be wearing this dress all spring, it’s perfect for the weather! I love the long length and the quarter sleeves keep me a little warmer. Also! Have you guys fallen back in love with the choker trend yet? Because I’m obsessed. This beaded choker from Ettika is everything right now. I’ve worn it pretty much every other day since I got it, and I plan on wearing it all summer long. Zero apologies.
Happy Monday! I’ve been slacking on the blogging the past couple of weeks because I’ve lost all motivation to blog winter clothes. I may have to fly south, or west, next year to avoid this slump again. There’s only so many sweaters and winter coats I can stand to wear before I’m over it, you know? With that said, it warmed up a little bit last week and I jumped at the chance to put on a flirty little dress sans coat, tights, AND closed toes! Spring is in the air guys, get excited!
This post gives me life for so many reasons! The fact that I could walk outside with bare legs and not freeze makes me damn happy. I’ve realized over the past month I’m over wearing jeans. The struggle of trying to match a shirt and bottoms is just something I’ve lost patience for, ha. Dresses are the way to go, throw on one and forget about it, done.
I’ve been eyeing this dress from Sheinside for so long but kept putting it off because it wasn’t warm enough to wear just yet. I love the fun print and the open back. It makes it impossible to wear a bra, unless you get pasties, but as you can probably tell, I don’t really need one. Womp womp. Anyway! It’s going to be in the 60’s all week and I am dying to get out in more of these little spring ready dresses! YAY.
When you’re shopping with a good cause in mind it kind of takes the sting out of spending, doesn’t it? When what you’re shopping for is 20% off it makes it even that much sweeter! All month long South Moon Under is offering 20% off their exceptional denim selection. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with SMU and Citizens of Humanity Jeans to tell you guys all about it!

Before I tell you guys all about this denim event, let’s talk about designer sunglasses at insanely affordable prices. If you have not heard of Ditto Eyewear yet, let me drop some knowledge on you. I am a sunglasses addict. I have more pairs than I can count and I think I legitimately buy a new pair at least weekly. Ditto Eyewear is a new and exclusive service that lends you designer shades (and actual glasses) for a small monthly fee. Once you’ve tried on your most recent heart’s desire, you simply request a new pair with your personal stylist. They mail out you next shades immediately with a prepaid shipping label to return your original selection at no cost to you. It’s brilliant I tell you, BRILLIANT! You can try out the service for free for your first month by using code THERACHELROSS at checkout here! I’ve already taken two pairs of Karen Walker’s and a Prada for a test run and I plan on basically trying them all.. because I mean… I’m addicted right?
Ok, so now about the jeans! Like I said, for the entire month of October South Moon Under is offering their amazing denim selections at 20% off. Brands include Citizens of Humanity, BLANK NYC, Hudson, Free People, AG and more! Want to know what the great cause is? Great, I thought so! All month long you can bring in your old jeans to be donated to the Blue Jeans Go Green denim recycling program where your old wardrobe will be recycled into denim insulation which is pretty friggen amazing if you ask me! I’m somewhat of a hoarder, really… I still have jeans from high school, but over the weekend I cleaned out my drawers and I’ll be stopping at SMU soon to donate these old rags as soon as Joaquin heads out of town. So be sure to stay safe if you’re on the east coast! THEN be sure to head to South Moon Under to do your part for a good cause, and THEN reward yourself with 20% some new jeans. ;]
So, it’s November. When did that happen and how can we slow time down? I suppose we can’t. BUT, we can hop on a plane and get the hell out of here when it gets too cold. When the weather starts to cool down to unbearable temperatures we can always take comfort in the fact that the beach and an ice cold margarita are only a quick plane ride away. I mean, unless of course you’re me, and have 2 kids and a business to run. In my case, I have no choice but to grit my teeth and bare it, HA. But if you’re one of the lucky ones with a sweet winter vaca on the calendar this year, here are some styling options just for YOU!
Normally I would wear an outfit like this with comfortable flip flops. I wore this on vacation in New Port, and I knew we would be wandering around town all day. HOWEVER, my two evil puppies decided that my absolute favorite GAP flip flops would be their afternoon snack one day. I hate them sometimes. Anyway, I was forced to up my game when it came to my footwear due to my dogs insatiable need to eat anything and everything in front of them, but it’s ok. These are some of the most comfortable shoes I own and it allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone for the day.
I am a Jersey girl through and through. I have been raised that way and I will continue to bleed “dirty” NJ water until I die. I grew up “at the shore” (a phrase that still makes me cringe thanks to MTV) and I am going to go out on a limb and say that as long as I have anything to do with it, I will never move, HA. Sorry babe, we’re never moving back up north….ever. The only other place I would consider relocating to is California. It is such an attractive state, on the coast, and I need to be within 5 miles of a beach at all times, even in the winter. ANYWAY! My point is, whenever I travel I always bring with me my custom NJ necklace from Moon & Lola. It’s my favorite little piece of home whenever I’m not near it.
The best thing about planning a vacation early is, you get to shop all of the amazing end of the season sales! And I mean, what could be better than shopping at a serious discount? Not much, really. Enjoy your vacation and have a drink or two for me please! ;]
