I love when Fall time rolls around… The leaves are changing and the temperatures are definitely cooling down. One of my go-to layering pieces has always been a leather jacket, and today I’m sharing two different ways to style a leather jacket this Fall!

How to Dress Like an Italian Bombshell

If New York women have mastered power dressing and Parisians have effortless elegance down to a science, then Italian women should be credited with excelling at dressing like bombshells, and oozing with easygoing sex appeal—the kind that has you do a double take and wonder “did she wake up like that?”

After visiting Italy almost every Summer as a child and teenager, I’ve realized that most of Italian women always look put-together, even when they’re just heading to the grocery store (their ability to practically run along the cobblestone streets in the highest of heels continues to impress me). To get the look, you’ll have to invest in a few things: A chic pair of stilettos, a dress with the just right amount of va-va-voom—a la Sophia Loren, THE Italian glamour girl, and sexy – yet smart -accessories such as a pair of statement gloves, a beautiful handbag, or playful baroque detailed costume jewelry. Build outfits starting with a statement piece—be it sassy stilettos, gloves, or to-die-for chandelier earrings—and go from there.

“Some of my favorite Italian style-setters know the secret to any great outfit is starting with a statement piece, and then building an outfit around it”

The Floral Prints Blooming in the Fashion World

A floral story is not exclusive to Spring – ladies like their blooms year-round and the runways were more than happy to comply with moodier versions of garden prints this season. With Summer coming to an end, it’s time to talk about Fall fashion. One of the biggest trends for Fall 2017 is to wear couch floral prints. This means instead of wearing the usual floral prints with roses or daisies, the trend is to wear vintage-inspired floral prints, ones you might see on a vintage couch or pillow.

“For Fall/Winter 2017, try dark, bewitching blooms from  Preen and Gucci, graphic posies by way of Miu Miu and Marni, or creeping buds up the pale pink palettes of Zimmermann and Rodarte”

Our New Bedroom Makeover Reveal

I am so excited to share our master bedroom makeover reveal with you!
My boyfriend and I have different taste in furniture and home design (like many other couples out there), so designing can certainly be a very emotional process. You’re changing your day-to-day environment, making countless decisions, solving problems and spending money. My best advice is to come to an agreement about the basic things such as color, texture and types of furnishings, and go from there. Make decisions with love and respect. As much as you want to love your space when you walk through the door, your partner should love it just as much. Create an environment that reflects who you are as a couple and the life that you want to live. By keeping the lines of communication open, setting expectations and being willing to compromise, you can design a space that truly represents everyone who lives there.

“The main design rules for small room furniture arrangement are no different than in a large room: Choose furniture that fits the space, and don’t try to squeeze too much in”
