Plaid Shirt Dress

01 October 2014

Since I've been spending the last couple of weeks following Fashion Week in easy pieces I've found myself opting for a little bit more print or color. This dress is the prime example with the subtle yet perfect for fall plaid in the easy shirt dress silhoette. I'm thinking it's going to look even better when textured tights are paired in their direction.

The Classics

30 September 2014

Whenever I'm in a style rut and find myself mid clothes explosion I always reach for classic items that have always worked in the past to give me that extra boost back into reality that I need. Of course the addition of a bold lip doesn't hurt either..

Watch It

29 September 2014

Each year when Fall (finally) comes around I always reach for my layers first, whether it's my trusty moto jacket, oversized scarf or insanely cozy sweater I never fail to incorporate them the second the crisp Fall air presents itself. Of course it doesn't just stop there, I start reaching for more accessories, like statement necklaces, earrings and my new personal favorite, watches. Now, I'm not one for a huge arm party but a delicate bracelet or two paired with a classic watch is exactly what I'm feeling this season. Classic with a stylish modern touch. I'm pretty excited that I kind of got lucky with this Pulsar Watch, it's the right size for my otherwise petite wrists and works perfectly with my other gold accessories. It's easily taken from day to night, and adds just enough style to my Fall ensembles (plus, you know, it's practical).

It paired effortlessly with my white blouse and high waisted French Connection shorts when we experienced a brief heatwave over the weekend. But I have no doubt in my mind that it will look equally perfect paired with one of my many knits I have in store this season.
Loving the watch? You can grab it or check out the many other styles here (or at one of my current favorites, Kohl's)...

Mixed Media

26 September 2014

Now that it's officially Fall and the temperatures are {quickly} dropping I'm bringing one of my favorite Fall pairings back for another season of awesome. Because, if there's one thing I love for Fall, aside from the overload of layers, it's the legwear. Socks in particular, which you saw last year here & here. There's just something about playing with textures and prints in not-so-conventional ways that does it for me, but you know this. Which is why I knew they'd be perfect for this outfit, the mixed print shirt, leather skirt and hat all together make everything lax with just the right amount of pop.

Le Tote X TfDiaries Style

25 September 2014

I'm all for adding new pieces to my closet on a regular basis, the only problem is my tiny little apartment (and closet) really don't store a whole lot. I guess it's the downfall of these little NYC apartments, but I'm not complaining. 

Mainly because I found a new secret weapon to this problem, and it's Le Tote.  Which is a monthly subscription service starting at $19 ($49 for the boutique box where they send you 5 pieces, 3 pieces of clothing & 2 accessories) at a time, for you to wear for as long as you'd like. Send them back and get a whole new shipment, it's unlimited through the month! 

It pretty much defeats the purpose of having to go shopping for new items each season (or week) when you're feeling the itch of adding something new. Plus they have brands that you love like BCBG, French Connection, BB Dakota, & House of Harlow all in one place. When you sign up you can add items you love to your closet, and you're notified when there are new arrivals. Now, if you find a piece in your box that you simply just can't live with out, you can purchase it at a discounted price by not sending it back. I'm on my 3rd box and I'm pretty much obsessed at this point. It literally solved my lack of storage problem, and with style...(also it was kind of perfect for Fashion Week, just saying...)

With all that being said, I've teamed up with Le Tote to offer my awesome readers their very own chance to fall in love with the service by offering you 50% off with promo code "thefrugalistadiaries"! So go check it out, and let me know what you think. 

And until then, check out what I wore and how I wore it from the box!
