Midi skirts are also a great choice for this time of year. Add your midi skirt and your jean jacket to your favorite tee and ballet flats or wedges. Then you are set to layer a coat on top or strip down to the tee & skirt to adjust for those crazy pants weather changes. xo, Mallory
Every year it seems I need to re-learn how to layer for fall and winter. I truly hate cold weather. I'm most happy wearing a sun dress with ballet flats or sneakers. I like to keep it simple. So, layers are a struggle for me. Here are the ways I like to add layers without feeling bulky or not stylish.
The best solution to me is a beautiful, tailored jacket. Ours is sold out (yay!), but a blazer like this can dress up any t-shirt and jeans combo and still keep you warm! I also love a dressed up pair of sneakers to replace my summer sandals. These Kate Spade Glitter Keds Sneakers look amazing with almost every outfit! The top is our Bourbon Barrel Top which is almost sold out too and won't be re-stocked.
Turn any dress or long tunic into a layering piece with nice thick leggings and boots. The pair of leggings under our Bourbon Barrel Tunic are Under Armour. I prefer nice warm/fleece lined leggings like those for winter, and I never ever wear leggings (unless exercising) without my behind being covered. This is one of my cardinal style rules! On top of the tunic & leggings I added my old trusty jean jacket. That baby looks amazing with everything! By the way, these are given out with every Mallory order.
Okay, so this one is super obvious. I love to put on some tights under my fave skirts and dresses. This is the Photofinish Skirt from our Fall '15 Collection. It's a nice wool so it's also very snuggly. I tend to gravitate towards more light and colorful items that normally seem 'springy' so I just add classic layers like these fleece lined tights and clean lined Calvin Klein boots. I love being able to extend use of my favorite pieces to every season. Of course when it gets even chillier I'll add my jean jacket on top of this look too! xo, Mallory
Recently the lovely people at
contacted me about reviewing one of their wood watches. I took one look at their website and quickly fell in love. I ordered the Sidney in Maple and Rose Gold. Let's be real, if there is a rose gold option I am IN!
It arrived packed in a carved wood box around a pillow, pre-sized to my wrist measurement. Their presentation did not disappoint. Their quality doesn't disappoint either. I have already worn the watch 3 days and have received compliments each time! I officially love
. They have this page,
set up for you to check out so you too can fall in love. In these photos I paired it with our
and gingham shorts. Photos by Darlene Fausz. ♥ Mallory
