(Sur)torial: Easy Breezy Uniform

My everyday uniform is essentially made of stripes and jeans, and I try to come up with versatile ways to accessorize the look. In this case, I was actually looking to build an outfit around these floral shoes. Although my intention was not to involve stripes and denim again, it just ended up being that way. Printed shoes and striped tees go so well. In fact, prints and stripes generally go well together.

Because my goal here is to draw attention to the shoes, I went with neutral structured satchel to go with it. I added a scarf just to add some interest and contrast. It's also weather appropriate. Feel free to let go of the scarf and add a pair of stylish sunnies. Whatever soothes your soul.

I don't own any of these accessories but would love to. The shoes are so cool, no?

Toddler Girls Fashion: Quilted Jacket, Distressed Denim & Some leaf peeping

A quilted piece is a fall staple and this plum color quilted jacket was love at first sight. I bought it in India when I visited last winter. I've been waiting for my younger one to grow into it. It finally fits her really well. The sleeves are a bit long so I fold them, and I obviously should right, since the striped details look even better. I layered a floral top underneath, and paired it up with distressed denim. I seriously want one in my size!

Enough fall talk. This past weekend was summer all over again. We drove up North for some leaf peeping and it was the perfect weekend for that. The girls had a blast! Couldn't resist making some snapies!

I know, I know. I need to take them both for a hair cut!


Toddler Girls Fashion: Hounds, Houndstooth Pants and Wingtip Shoes

This is one of my favorite fall looks for my 2-year-old. These houndstooth leggings with suede knee patches and wingtip boots are everything! And because she loves "doggy" so much, this adorable printed sweater just rounds up the entire look. Oh, am I forgetting the peter pan collar? I have no idea which piece I love the most. It's a win-win all the way.

Toddler Girls Fashion: Peplum, Gingham and Golden

A few latest fall additions to my 3-year-old's closet. Golden shoes are my weakness. I just couldn't resist these cool kicks for my daughter. Also love this peplum top with floral patches and cute button details at the back. Overall, a stretchy comfy outfit for an active toddler.

Toddler girl fashion: houndstooth pants & floral top

Do you remember these houndstooth pants from last year? The cutest hand-me-down my younger one has received from her sister. My older one wore these pants a lot and I am surprised they are still alive. I am so glad we put these to such good use. Pairing them with a chambray shirt and a floral top for a cozy layered look.

Toddler Girls Fall Fashion: Sweatshirt Chic

Something so casual, comfy, and chic about cute graphic crew neck sweatshirts and slouchy skinny sweatpants. I love these looks for my 3-year-old and my almost 2-year-old. School, playdate, or park, it's a fun sporty look for chilly fall days. And aren't these backpacks just too adorable?

Classic Fall Pieces

Some classic must-haves for this fall. I love fur vests but haven't really owned one ever. My goal is to get one soon for this season. A ripped boyfriend jeans is another one on my wish list, and so is a pair of pointy neon flats. It's time to go shopping I guess. What are some of your fall favorites?

Classic Fall Pieces



Felt the first fall chill in the air this week. So I guess it's time to officially fall-ify your closet and talk transition pieces. I am loving this sweatshirt shift dress by Madewell -- easy and casual for those out and about days. Throw on oxford flats, add a pop of color by carrying a floral cross body, and you are good to go.
