    seattle style blog 2014

    It’s finally time to head into fall – hair first. That’s right, beach bums, time to rinse out the salt water and take a step back from the tousled waves you’ve been rocking all summer long. With fall comes the opportunity to pull back, put up and twist around (your hair, of course).

    Click through the slideshow below to check out 11 easy but stylish ways to wear your hair – most styles take less than 5 minutes to do, and pair perfectly with both scarves & boots.

  • 5 Fall Wardrobe Staples for Cool Girls

    fall 2014 style tips seattle blog

    While the basic bitches are already out pumpkin-patching with knee-high boots, leggings, ear muffs and PSLs, you’re trying to figure out how to transition from summer to fall. You probably already have the basics I outlined in my summer must have post - like the perfect linen tee and a cross-body bag. Those staple items will be perfect for fall layers – so while the jorts & sandals may have to get tucked away, most other pieces are transformative and are still relevant as the season changes.

    These 6 items are perfect additions to your wardrobe for fall – and it’s a simple way to organize a shopping strategy for fall without completely breaking the bank or falling for trends that won’t last more than a season. You should already have a fall coat that you love, as well as scarves, beanies and fun socks. Pair these 6 refreshed items with your classic favorites and boom – you’re cool enough to get a PSL and not end up on a Buzzfeed list called something like 11 Typical Basic Girls Instagram Posts for Fall.

    1. The Perfect Flannel

    To wear buttoned & tucked in, open and with layers or tied around your waist with a sweater & skinnies.

    My picks: Straight Size: Madewell Boyfriend Flannel Plus Size: ASOS Curve Plaid Flannel

    2. Black Jeans with a Twist

    Either distressed black skinnies or boyfriend jeans – or leather paneled black skinnies. Simple black jeans with some detail or twist to go with everything.

    My Picks: Straight Size: Distressed Boyfriend Jeans from Nordstrom | Plus Size: ASOS Curve Ripped Knee Skinnies

    3. Updated Booties

    An updated pair of short boots with little to no heel – for comfy wearing throughout the day. Pick either brown or black – whichever one your closet is missing.

    My Picks: Black Booties: Madewell Nico Bootie | Brown Booties: Top Shop Vintage Booties

    4. Dark Stripes

    Stripes are always in, we always need a little bit of Parisian in our closets no matter the season. Instead of your classic white & black stripe, try a darker grey & black.

    My Picks: Straight Size: J.Crew Linen Swingy Stripe Shirt (on sale!)  | Plus Size: Nordstrom Stripe Block Tee

    5. Relaxed Knit

    A knit sweater that is perfectly relaxed and makes you want to drink cocoa and watch Miracle on 34th Street.  Find a simple one, with some interesting but subtle details.

  • Fall Fur & Leopard Booties

    You knew I’d return.

    I’m Back.

    I’m back from my “sebatical” which included getting stuck in NYC during the Sandy hurricane, then traveling to San Francisco for a conference, all the while trying to balance work & personal life. But you knew I’d be back…and here I am. With a new outfit post I’m excited to share with you! I missed Seattle and I’m excited to be home for the holidays…running around trying to look fashionable while I simultaneously stuff stuffing and turkey into my belly!

    The Outfit.

    This outfit is fabulous for a couple of reasons. First off, the wonderful people at ALDO contacted me and I was able to choose any pair of booties from their site to test out here on my blog – and I fell head-over-chunky-heels for the leopard Cedrina ankle boots. The boots are high quality and super comfy, they are definitely a staple for my fall wardrobe! My faux fur collar is from H&M (similar here), my long coat is a favorite and it’s from the Gap (old, similar here). My oxblood hat is also from H&M, I’m in love with it…everyone needs one. The fabulous bracelet was a gift but I’m lusting after this piece of arm candy.

    And the photos were shot at the Westin in downtown Seattle by the most amazing photag in the world, Chelle Ticeson. Check out The Chic Curve on Facebook for exclusive photos & outtakes of this outfit!
