Floral Bomber

I definitely stocked up on bomber jackets over the past few months, but this one was the cherry on top of it all. Something a little more ornate and embellished, I loved the feminine detail the floral design added to a typically masculine piece. Because I'm pretty simple with my outfits, this just gave it that extra flare that can upgrade any minimal look. Shop some great bombers below.

Céline Edge x Trendlee

Getting down to business with a bag like this makes working so much better. I've always been a fan of the clean lines of Céline bags, but with the price tag that is often attached to them, it's hard to get every single one crossed off your wish list. I've partnered up with Trendlee once more because of their amazing selection of pre-loved bags for a reasonable price. 

The Edge Bag comes in a variety of materials and colors, retailing at $3,100 + tax brand new. Check out their amazing selection of Edge Bags here and even take an additional 5% off the price with my code "STYLEDNSMITTEN" What I'm loving about this one is the neutral tone that just seems to be perfect for fall. Having such a neutral wardrobe, I'm all about making my handbags the statement piece. Let's not forget that the holidays are around the corner; I always like to think of it as "treat yourself" season. If anyone is reading this with a significant other who loves designer bags in mind, I know there's something you could get that special someone in your life. Perhaps you'll find something among their selection of pre-loved Chanel bags which I'm constantly looking at.

Check out my links below to help you navigate through some picks of mine on the site as well as details on this look. Happy shopping! ;)

Brooklyn En Blanc

Oversized tops are the solution to being comfortable all day long and being able to hide the food baby after a solid brunch date. During one of New York City's warmer days, still making that summer to fall transition, it was the perfect opportunity to pair a billowy blouse with some leather shorts and crisp white sneakers. While I do love the lighter layers, I'm ready to cozy up into some sweaters and coats. Shop this look below!

Byredo | Mojave Ghost

A change of seasons called for a fresh scent, and my latest obsession is Mojave Ghost from Byredo. I fell in love with the fresh scent, something unlike any other fragrance I've ever had before. After a few trips for free samples, I just had to make the purchase to make this my everyday scent. The light and delicate fragrance seemed to be perfect for the turning seasons into cooler weather. Mojave Ghost notes include Ambrette, Magnolia, Sandalwood, Violet, and hints of Cedarwood, Chantilly Musk, and Crisp Amber. Byredo has a great selection of scents that can suit everyone, but Mojave Ghost has got to be my favorite. I always get those compliments and questions of, "What are you wearing?" when I'm out and about. This could make the perfect gift for your loved one for the holidays. Shop their selection in the links below.

Embracing Fall Tones

Now this weather is what I'm talking about. Chilly enough for layers, but still comfortable enough to be out and about for hours. Though I wear neutrals most of the time, there's something about these fall tones of burnt orange and olive green that are perfect for the autumn season. Whether you're mixing these colors together, or making just one the hero of your outfit, fall is the perfect time to be playful with different shades while still keeping a neutral palette.

Lou & Grey Shirtdress

Seems like summer can't let go just yet, with temperatures suddenly back up in the 80s, New Yorkers found themselves peeling the layers back off and sticking to the basics. I stopped by the Lou & Grey store and fell for this light tunic that can easily work throughout the year. For a warm night out in the city, I kept things casual with white sneakers and a small crossbody bag. Wear it as a dress, or pair it with your leather leggings slightly tucked in the front, and you're good to go for a mix of occasions. Shop some great shirt dresses below!

Falling for Fossil

Time is a tricky thing for me, whether it's sleeping too late, waking up at noon, or just running late in general, time escaped me. Over the past few weeks, I've tried to be better about not just being on time, but really striving to be an overall earlier person in general. After partnering with Fossil, it's a lot easier to stay on top of things with my custom time piece. Designing a timepiece to my exact specifications is a dream and I'm in love with the outcome of my new Fall favorite. Come winter, spring, and summer, it'll be easy to switch along with the seasons with interchangeable straps. Build yours here.
