I’m not exactly a “jeans and tee” girl so I always add a few fun accessories like a scarf and statement jewelry. I partnered with TenGems today to curate a collection of some of my favorite pieces — everything from everyday earrings to a classic watch and statement rings like the one I’m wearing. TenGems sells gorgeous designer jewelry for way less than retail price — be sure to check out my collection here & let me know your favorite piece!

There are times when being tall has perks, but while shopping is rarely one of those times. Just this weekend I was on a mad hunt for over the knee boots but every pair I tried on were just… knee boots. Most of my jeans are “cropped” and sleeves tend to be “bracelet length.” I realize I’m complaining about a feature that some people covet but you have to understand — the grass is always greener. Needless to say, I get pretty excited when I find pieces designated for taller girls which is why I jumped at the chance to style a piece from Long Tall Sally’s collaboration with Taller Than Your Average! The collection is designed especially for girls 5′ 8″ and taller so I just make it but I immediately noticed the difference in this white moto jacket. It’s a little longer in the body with longer sleeves and made from that amazing scuba material. The rest of the TTYA x Long Tall Sally collection are timeless pieces like a longline blazer, midi skirt and maxi dress — all the pieces that tend to be harder for us to find!

As you’ve seen, a dress and ankle boots is my go-to fall outfit as long as the weather allows. Unfortunately, I think we’re nearing the end of bare leg season but I managed one last time! I wore this outfit to a fun event last week where I got to preview BHLDN’s Spring ’15 collection. It was, as you can imagine, absolutely stunning — the gowns and jewels were something out of a fairytale. Plus, the Drybar was there to amp up my curls and Alyssa taught everyone how to make these beautiful flower crowns. Afterwards, the boyfriend and I went to The Strand for date night and had just enough time to zip up to the roof and check out the amazing views before heading home.
