People often ask me what is one clutch or handbag that they should splurge on.  Although there is no right or wrong answer, this Clare V. Supreme Haircalf Fold Over Leopard Clutch has been my best investment over the last year, as far as clutches are concerned.  It is a bit pricey, but totally worth the splurge, because I carry it nonstop.  I often take it downtown for nights out with girlfriends, or, to more dressy events, as well as to brunch on the weekend.  It goes with everything and is the perfect size for all of the essentials.  As I get older, I am truly starting to appreciate investing in lasting quality pieces, and that I would rather invest in fewer quality, lasting "splurge" items, rather than purchase a bunch of cheaper "trendy" items that are of lower quality.

Happy Monday!  For today's post, I am sharing a roundup of some of my favorite basic white wardrobe staples. Never underestimate the power of a classic white button-down, layering tee, or turtleneck, for that matter. White goes with everything and is so classic.  Now that fall (a/k/a layering season) is quickly approaching, a basic short or long-sleeved white tee is perfect to wear with a motto jacket and/or blanket scarf.  Also, a pretty white turtleneck is a must to wear to work with pencil skirts and blazers, and with jeans on the weekend.  I absolutely love this tissue turtleneck! It is so soft and is the perfect fall wardrobe staple, because I wear turtlenecks nonstop in cooler months (side note: it is not bulky like many other turtlenecks!).  The best part about this turtleneck is that it is under $20.00 and comes in so many pretty colors, such as Paris Pink! What basic white wardrobe staples are you investing in this fall/winter??

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Monday!

5 Trends to Try This Fall

Hi, everyone!  I am so excited to guest post today over on Bright on a Budget to share some of my favorite fall trends.  Tif of Bright on a Budget was one of my first blogger friends.  She too is an attorney and blogs about all things fashion, beauty and lifestyle.  I have shared a peek of my guest post below, but be sure to check out her blog for more details and lots of daily inspiration!  

1. Chunky Sweater
A quality chunky sweater is a major fall must-have.  I love layering chunky sweaters over basic button-downs to create a sophisticated casual look that will keep me warm in the cooler temps.

Stripes look amazing year-round.  You can't go wrong with a classic striped turtleneck to wear at the office with skirts, or, to pair with jeans for a more casual weekend vibe.

4. Faux Leather Pencil Skirt
This faux leather pencil skirt was quite possibly one of my favorite purchases last fall.  I love the faux leather material and the rich brown hue.  This skirt is gorgeous, and perfect for transitioning into cooler months.  I love wearing it with turtlenecks and booties, or, a button-down and stilettos.
