Fall Outfit Inspiration from my favorite A-list Fashion Icons.

Ahhh, crisp Fall breezes, orange and yellow leaves, the smell of charcoal, and pumpkin spice lattes. I have planted two yellow mums in my front yard and have four pumpkins... I would say I am becoming more and more domesticated by the day having a house in the south now. ;-) And ohhhh, how I have missed having seasons! As much as I adored living in Los Angeles for the past 5 years, it really did feel like "one long sunny day". Autumn has always been my favorite time of year and I am adoring this weather in Nashville right now. 

With that being said, I am now getting the chance to dress for my "favorite season" once again! Below, I have gathered a few streetstyle shots from my A-list fashion icons to get our fashion wheels turning. I have been craving some fresh ensemble ideas since I finally have a walk in closet again! Yipppeee!

Hope you're all having a lovely week!

I'm having a difficult time peeling my eyes off of Olivia Palermo this morning in this killer Giambattista Valli dress. As usual my favorite classy fashion icon has accessorized herself perfectly with Wunderkind sunglasses and Charlotte Olympia pumps. Gah, what I would give her wardrobe. It seriously just hurts my heart!
Kiera Knightley always has the best little dresses that I invariably swoon over. This is most likely because she keeps a nice revolving door of frocks coming from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Valentino, Rodarte, Elie Saab, and Jenny Packham... five of my favorite designers for great day time original looking dresses.  Here Kiera dons an Elie Saab frock at "A Dangerous Method" premiere in Toronto. Classic, ladylike, almost Edwardian paired with Miu Miu pumps. Oh, and can we please take a moment of silence to look at the back of this dress! So conservative looking from the front and then you turn around and see the whole back is cut out, boom! So sexy and original! She definitely gets my vote for best dressed!
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen wearing The Row at The New York Film Festival just a few days ago. Fresh off the press... ohhh these furs! Gimme, gimme, gimme. MK's is just slaying me. I need it!!! Leather with the bomber fur sleeves. Woah! Obsessed!
 An oldie but goodie. I pulled this one out of my Kate Bosworth archives from last February- where she was leaving a London hotel. ;-). It's nothing new to my regular readers that I have a total love affair with Kate. I truly believe that she has never made a bad fashion choice. I completely adore her. Here she is sporting a bad ass Burberry Prorsum Quilted Leather Biker Jacket, Cutler and Gross Sunglasses, Derek Lam Ram's Head Buffalo Leather Mini Handbag, and a Derek Lam skirt. I can't deal with how darling the preppy skirt is mixed with the casual thrown on grey tee, then the harsh biker jacket and boots. This is SO completely the way I dress most days. Yet, she still carries herself like such a classy woman. That combination is a rarity these days. Kate is one of a kind! I love her to pieces!

 Oh, Hermione. You get all the good stuff! This Prada white collared frock is so charming, right?! Had to include this one! I would wear this little baby year round! I just love Emma Watson so much. ;) This piece reminds me of something my bestie, Liza, would wear. Be sure to check out her blog at, Fashion Over Groceries. It's darling and her shopping finds are killer! ;)

I'm Back!!! Let's pick out some F/W Coats and Boots!

Hi baby loves! Wow, it is good to be back and blogging! I have missed you all so, so, so, so, so much! I can not even begin to tell you!


Ok, so HERE is my big news! John (my fiance) and I officially no longer live in Los Angeles. We moved to Nashville, TN 3 weeks ago! I have been driving across the country, moving in, getting settled, and playing Suzy domestic homemaker here in our DARLING new house in East Nashville. We have been planning this move for a little while now and finally pulled the trigger! We threw everything... well not threw, but gently placed everything in a big 22 foot moving truck... (my wardrobe is fragile! baha) and drove our whole life across the country! We have family and close friends here in Nashville, so we are ecstatic to be based here now! East Nashville is essentially the equivalent to Silver Lake in LA or Tribeca in NYC. It is totally our scene and we are in love with our neighborhood! Nashville is packed full with loads of eccentric artists, stylists, musicians, photographers, designers... you name it... it's all here... and John and I feel right at home. ;) The old stereotype of, "Nashville is just for country music", absolutely does not apply anymore!!! In fact, it's almost shocking how much Nashville has grown and changed!


So without further ado... onward to blogging, my loves! I have returned, relocated and am ready to dive back into sharing all my fashion tales with you gorgeous babes!


For my first post here in Nashville... Where it's now getting chilly, I decided it would be apropos to do a delicious chock full post of all my dream Fall/Winter coats and boots! I have not experienced a real winter in over 5 years since I was living in sunny LA! Ekkk! Here are my picks below. ;) Let me know which ones are your favorites! I hope you have all been fantastic! Much love!
