The Edit: Camel



Obsessing over all the camel coated hues I've been seeing on the "real-way" this past month. I'm currently waiting for another big sell from Nordstroms & Shopbop to make the kill, in the meantime these are on my covet list. 

Did you stock up on any camel pieces this fall?

How to Wear Camo Leggings


Fall means bringing out the camo pants, and if you're anything like me then you probably expanded to camo leggings all the way to tops. I'll admit, I wasn't a fan of camo when it first hit the scene since it reminded me too much of jocks - what's with jocks and camos?? BUT, times have changed and I've seen quite a few ladies rock this trend fiercely in the fall.





Sunglasses: Ray-Bans  Necklace: c/o Capwell+Co  Chambray: Madewell  Sweater: H&M  Purse: c/o The Sak

So, into the camo trend, I made sure to get the print in leggings too! For this particular trendy fall look I decided to use my chambray shirt as a layer in the overall look. FYI, chambray and denim jacket will always look good with camo if you're ever in an "I don't know what to wear" bind. It's basically the easiest way to look put together. 

But, since this a layered look Chambray was only the beginning. For the final layer I could either go with a saturated hue or a texture top to complete the look. I decided to go the texture route - the knits kept me warm and was long enough to keep my bum covered. Sidenote: always, keep your bum covered when in leggings. To complete the look, I paired it with my brown riding boots, patterned Deena satchel from The Sak, and a long necklace from Capwell + Co.

End result, felt very polished and cool enough to hang out with Blair Waldorf herself.

Piperlime's Moments of Chic


Wondering what to wear this fall? Think fall florals, cropped sweaters, and slip-on sneakers. Wondering where to get all of this at one-stop shop? Piperlime.com is pretty amazing when it comes to their selections (their buyers are on POINT) and their flexible price points go from SAVE to SPLURGE. I tend to stick to the STEAL sections, once known as girl on a budget, since girlfriend is always on a budget. 





Sweater: c/o JOA via Piperlime  Skirt: NastyGal (on sale)  Purse: Lo and Sons Claremont Crossbody (borrowed from Lydia)  

Piperlime is basically a shoppable magazine, with a curated selection from their guest editors (love, LOVE everything Olivia Palermo picks!!), which is easy on the eyes. This fall, I'm all about playing with textures and skirts. Gotta flaunt those bare legs before the vortex swoops in, and I heard this winter is going to be extra painful. 

On the outfit deets: since my Joa sweatshirt had a boxy cut, I paired it with a skater skirt - more so for the allusion of curves haha. For those of you trying to do the grid trend I find sticking with neutrals to be a good base. Or, if you want to go bold pair it with floral print, bright colors, or animal (think big cats) print. 

For my blogging friends and stylish readers, you also get a chance to feature your latest Piperlime purchases on their style feed by using #momentsofchic on Instagram. Piperlime also came out with their own collection which if you haven't seen yet you should. I shot one of their pieces a while back, but due to bad lighting and really bad hair vibes those photos will never see the light of day... Unless I do one a post dedicated to outtakes - then maybe. You'd get a good laugh.
