The weather’s really been playing with my emotions lately. One day the temps are up, the next day they’re down. It’s enough to make a gal’s wardrobe spin. That’s why I’ve been relying on a few transitional pieces that work well for the chilly mornings we’ve been having, yet don’t cause me to melt into a puddle when the mercury rises unexpectedly throughout the day.

I love the classic hunter green color of this dress which just screams fall. And I love it even more paired with the autumnal shades of my bag and shoes.

About the Fit:
I accidentally ordered this one size larger than normal but decided to keep it anyway. I think the oversized look gives it more of a casual feel (and will also come in handy during Thanksgiving and throughout the holidays!), so I kept it rather than going through the hassle of mailing it back or doing an in-store return. With that being said, I think you’d be safe going with your normal size. Another thing to note is that button-front shirtdresses like this can sometimes gap and pull with larger bust sizes. This one gave me zero issues even without a minimizer – Score!

How to Wear a Jumpsuit

When jumpsuits regained popularity a few years ago, I thought there was no way I could pull one off. As it turns out, I was way overthinking the matter. These days it seems like I can’t get enough of them, and they’ve officially replaced maxi dresses as my favorite travel outfit. For my frame (tall, with narrow hips and full thighs) I find that a tapered leg opening works best as opposed to a wide-leg, flowy silhouette.

I’ve worn this jumpsuit casually with sneakers and a jean jacket, but this time I dressed it up with heels and a blazer for a romantic dinner at Equus Restaurant at Castle Hotel & Spa.

Ever put on an outfit and just feel… GOOD?

Well that’s exactly how I felt the day I wore this ensemble to work. The day was filled with client meetings in Midtown, and so I wanted to look polished but still have fun with my outfit. Enter my new red double-breasted blazer from Zara which is everything you need in life right now. Seriously, this thing is amazing. It’s tailored to perfection and makes me feel oh-so-chic! 

Also, if you’ve watched my fashion hacks video on how to instantly upgrade your wardrobe, you’ll notice that I’ve employed three of my style secrets in this ensemble to help elevate my look:

  1. Designer shades
  2. A Chanel brooch
  3. A killer pair of heels
