I love it when a designer creates a basic top with a subtle twist.  This striped button down top from Paige is one of my favorite acquisitions for fall.  The silhouette is a staple, but the small ruffle detail on the shoulder gives it just the right amount of flare to make it a stand out piece.    This top is so versatile and can be worn with anything from jeans to a pencil skirt for an office-ready look.  Today I paired it with my high waisted charcoal DL1961 skinny jeans and denim Tony Bianco pumps.  I recently discovered Tony Bianco shoes and I am such a fan!  They have beautiful shoes at a fraction of the price of high-end designers.  To shop my look, click the links above and below.

My favorite thing to wear is a simple tee shirt with my moto jacket and high waisted skinny jeans.  I recently discovered American Eagle t-shirts and I am completely obsessed with them!  The most important thing when it comes to the perfect t-shirt is the fit.  I like it to be slightly fitted but also soft enough where the material has a fluid, flowy appearance.  Every year I re-stock my tee's and I was so excited with the fit, color selection and price of these  American Eagle shirts.  They only cost $14.99 and the quality is amazing.  To dress this outfit up for a night out, simply add a pair of pumps and you are good to go!

One of the more surprising trends to come back this season are corsets.  I have never worn a corset before and I have to admit I was a little hesitant to hop on board with this trend.  When I think of corsets I think about older Victorian style garments that are super fancy and uncomfortable.   That being said, the positive thing about corsets is that they really do cinch your waist to create a slimmed down look.   There are so many different ways you can wear this trend whether it be with a corset style belt or a built in corset like the one I am wearing today.  What I love about this corset tee from Zara is it gives the effect of a corset, but it really is just built in color blocking with a slight cinch to the material.  It is a great way to get that cinched in look without any discomfort.  It pairs perfectly with black jeans and pumps for a casual night out!  To shop my look, click the links above and below.

I am always looking for new ways to spice up my jeans and t-shirt outfits.  Military style dressing has always appealed to me because I love the fit and khaki colors that go along with it.  Camouflage is one of those prints that can go either way for me.   I like the print, but too much of it can be a bad thing.  When I found this Zara shirt, the fit is what drew me to it.  I love the oversized style and the frayed details.  I knew that it would be a great staple to pair with my jeans and t-shirts.  To dress the look up a little I paired it with my Stuart Weitzman shoes and favorite skinny jeans from DL1961.   I love how the camo print gives the outfit just the right amount of edge without being too boyish.  To shop this look, click the links above or below.  Happy Monday!
