For those who’ve been following me for a while, y’all know that I love companies that stand behind helping others. Y’allsome does just that! Y’allsome was started by Craig and Megan, a couple that grew up in the South. They sell T-shirts, caps and accessories with Southern inspired graphics and quotes. 10% of the profits got to help Southern foster kids find permanent homes. Now that’s doing y’allsome good!

I’ve always been in love with wearing blazers. A good fitting blazer is that third piece that finishes off an outfit, making it classic and chic. So the fact that the plaid blazer trend is in full force this year, makes me extremely happy. So here I bring you one of my favorite plaid blazer outfits for the Fall season.
If you’re still on the mend about getting a plaid blazer or are not sure how to rock the trend, I am going to give you some tips on what to look for when shopping for one and ways to wear it. Read more…
I am a total Casualista, if that’s even a word in the fashion industry. If not, well, I just made it up! I grew up in the Dominican Republic, in a city that celebrates being overdressed. No matter what, and no matter how hot it is (and it does get hot) people don’t wear Read more…
I’m super stoked because the weather finally got the memo that it is Fall! Although it was in the 80’s two days ago and in the low 40’s today, so it has been a bit of a drastic change. But alas, sweater weather is here!
I’ve been itching to start wearing sweaters and this one is no exception. How freaking fun is Read more…
Its Friday!!! (breathing a sigh of relief) I like weekdays, I really do! And for the most part I don’t mind Mondays, except for the waking up extra early. But boy, I’ve never been so happy for it to be the weekend already. One of my best friends is getting married this weekend and I’m so stoked! Plus, I get to relax and spend some time with all of my boys this weekend.
I also get to have a day date with my hubby today! Now that the Read more…
I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Banana Republic to bring you the ultimate Fall must-haves!!! I have always loved Banana Republic’s simple and chic styles with a twist. Any time I walk into one of their stores, I know I’m bound to find a few items that I will love and for this season’s collections, they did not disappoint. In fact, they have exceeded my expectations!
Last month I was lucky enough to attend the presentation of Banana Republic X Olivia Palermo in New York City during NYFW. I even got to take a picture with Olivia herself! The collection was nothing short than fantastic and I so wish I could just have one of everything. But, I’m not here to talk about that specific collection, instead I’m here to show you how Banana Republic’s Fall collection can elevate your wardrobe.
First, lets talk about this ribbed sweater dress. It’s not easy to find a really good sweater dress, #amiright? They either have no shape, which can make us look frumpy or are too tight, and because its pie season, that might just not work. This A-line sweater dress is forgiving because of its shape and the ribs are made to go in two different directions to flatter every body type. I also really like the button details on the right side that gives it a bit of a nautical feel. The color is technically navy but it does have a hint of green, making it a more jeweled tone. It also comes in a jeweled toned fuchsia (named plum on the site).
I styled the sweater dress with these OTK boots that are not just stylish but they don’t slide down! They are actually higher on the thigh but I folded them down a bit because of the length of the dress. You can also style the dress with booties or flats.
Another piece I selected is this fabulous animal bomber jacket. The twist? The poet sleeves, or puff sleeves if you will. It has a zipper and snap buttons with high quality craftsmanship. I also love the stand collar which is shorter than a regular folded one, so it the wool blend fabric won’t make my neck itch. This jacket is very versatile and a neutral piece that goes with almost anything. Besides styling it with the sweater dress, I also styled it with these boyfriend jeans, one of the t-shirts from my tee collection and black suede pumps.
Banana Republic’s new Fall items are sure to elevate your wardrobe this season. I have selected some other favorite items and posted them at the end of this post. Just click on each image to shop!
I hope I’ve inspired your Fall wardrobe! Thanks for stopping by!
