It’s definitely feeling like Fall outside and one trend I’m loving this season is pearls. I was thrilled when I saw this pearl detail blouse in-store at Melanie Lyne. Pearls are such a feminine and classy touch to any piece and this blouse is no exception. I love the chiffon fabric in this blouse and the high neckline. The pearls across the neckline give this piece a formal finishing touch. I also like the pearl buttons at the wrist, so classy and elegant.
This is a great blouse for work or an evening out. I went for a more corporate look when styling this piece. I paired the blouse with a checked print midi skirt. The pattern on the skirt helps balance out the plain black blouse. To accessorize I added a pair of basic black pumps – workwear must-have and my favourite satchel bag by Michael Kors.
I like the fact that this blouse adds some elegance to my workwear look. I’ve worn this outfit to work before and I simply love it. What do you think about the pearl detail trend this Fall?
Red is a colour I’m absolutely loving this Fall. It’s so rich and chic, nothing says class like a deep rich red. It’s also a great vibrant colour and symbolizes power – hello red power suit 😉 I was thrilled when I came across this red ruffle sleeve dress at Melanie Lyne.
This Karl Lagerfeld dress has a retro flair to it which I absolutely love. The ruffles on the sleeve give it a feminine touch. I also like that this dress fits a bit looser on the body, again a more retro vibe to it. For some reason this dress just screams Jackie O, don’t you think? The pearl buttons on this dress are so chic and totally on trend as pearls are a major must-have this Fall.
I paired this dress with a gorgeous pearl cascade necklace also from Melanie Lyne. I wanted to accent the pearl buttons on the sleeves. The necklace also breaks up the red of the dress and adds interest in the neckline area. I added my favourite pair of Ted Baker pumps and my go to Michael Kors bag for a more corporate chic look. I love clothing with a vintage or retro feel so this dress is definitely one of my favourites.

It’s good to be back after a short break! Although I’ve been pretty active on Instagram I haven’t done many blog posts lately. With Fall just around the corner I’m hoping to change that 😉 Even though it’s been off the air for quite a few years now, Gossip Girl continues to influence my style. I was a huge fan of the show and the fashion. I most identified with Blair Waldorf, as I simply loved her elegant and chic looks on the show. I even went through a phase where I wanted to be brown Blair Waldorf, headbands and all. When I saw this adorable blazer in-store at Suzy Shier I was thrilled to be able to put together this Blair Waldorf inspired outfit.
The blazer just screamed Gossip Girl with its embossed check patterning and double-breasted gold buttons. This is a piece you can dress up or down. I wanted to go for a more casual chic look so I paired it with a white tank top and jeans. I dressed up this look (Blair never dresses down) by adding some sophisticated yet feminine shoes and accessories.
Pearls never go out of style, in fact they’re very much in style this Fall with pearl details adorning everything from dresses to jeans. I wore a long pearl necklace which I layered for a fuller look. I also added my go-to bag from Michael Kors. It’s a great piece for work or the weekend. To finish off this look I wore my favourite pair of black pumps by Ted Baker. I simply love the bow detail on the front of this shoe, so cute and feminine.
Were you a fan of Gossip Girl? If so which character’s style did you like the most?
Feeling knotty? Pardon the pun, I just couldn’t resist! If you’ve been following me on instagram you’d know that I’ve recently started introducing puns in to my captions. It keeps me on my toes having to come up with something witty and I enjoy it as well 🙂 Speaking of puns . . . let’s twist again with this cute and comfy front twist top from Suzy Shier. Knotted or front twist tops have been a major trend this Spring and Summer so I was thrilled to find this top in store.
I like the casual look and feel of this top. It’s made from a rayon blend fabric and super comfortable to wear. I wore it out this past Saturday as I thought it was perfect for a relaxed weekend look. I paired the top with some cropped white jeans that I had picked up last year and some mules that I saw in store at Suzy Shier. The mules give this outfit a bit of an edgy look and these shoes just happen to be a great dupe of some Steve Madden flats, for a fraction of the price ofcourse 😉 To accessorize I added my go to Michael Kors cross body, perfect for running errands on the weekends 🙂
What do you think of the knotted t-shirt trend this Summer – are you ready to do the twist?
