WHAT TO WEAR TO A...

what-to-wear-to-a-horchata-latte-run
Need something to keep your hand warm during that morning commute? Run to your corner bakery and break the pumpkin spice latte rut by going for a cinnamony horchata latte instead. And while you're trying your hardest not to get foam on your upper lip, admire your vintage inspired outfit in the reflection of the window. There's nothing like a wool cape and a structured cross-body bag to give you that fall-in-the-60's feel. Underneath the plaid, play with contrasts and take a vintage silk dress and pair it with a thick, chunky heather-gray sweater as a top layer. Not stopping there, continue to play with those contrasts by going for clunky boots on your feet and a demure pillowbox hat on your head. Cozy and interesting all at once.

what-to-wear-to-an-apple-pie-bake-off
Autumn's not officially here unless I've had my first slice of pie (with a hot cup of cider on the side)! But instead of me slaving in the kitchen to make a mediocre one, I'm going to head to the annual apple pie bake-off and nibble semi-blissfully on other bakers' creations. To get into the cozy fall spirit that the event demands, take a lace turtleneck dress and break up the white column by layering a plaid wool-blend sweatshirt on top. The sweatshirt material will help make the dress feel more casual, and then add more fall staples to the mix like a denim jacket, knee-high riding boots, and a knit beanie for a touch of fun.

Get into the spooky mood by grabbing your favorite poncho and fringe loafers and heading over to the theater to watch some black and white Halloween classics. Sure you can watch House on Haunted Hill or Little Shop of Horrors on Netflix, but there's nothing like grabbing a bag of over-priced popcorn and giggling in the dark with the crowd over the cheesy plot twists. Bonus points if the theater plays organ music beforehand. And bonus points if you layer a turtleneck underneath your short sleeve denim dress.

Pair your wide leg trousers with a boxy turtleneck sweatshirt and meet a friend at the International Film Festival for a day of whispered side commentary through weird foreign films. Don't forget to break up your minimalist look by popping a plaid blouse underneath your sweater, letting the hem hang out just underneath your sweatshirt for a pop of interest. Juxtapose the slightly disheveled vibe by accessorizing with a smart hat and a sleek and structured backpack, creating a playful contrast. Then load up on popcorn and settle into an afternoon of watching inspiring and thought-provoking films...and quirky and weird art flicks. The misses are just as much fun as the hits! ;)

  12. I'm in perpetual love with the way you marry fashion and writing. It's what I aspire to do as well.

    Also, not to be that person, but I keep noticing "pillowbox" and feeling compelled to mention that it's actually "pillbox". ;)

  16. As always I am in love with every single outfit. And I have to say I am digging the capes so bad. I was also inspired by another one of your posts like this to finally buy a turtle neck - Why it had taken me so long to acquire one, I don't know. What I do know is that I am gonna rock it every way possible - well as soon as the weather cools down.
