Plaid Crop Top & Lace-Up Booties

Hello lovelies!

I want to share what I wore when I went to see Salman Rushdie last week.  I love crop tops – not everyone does but I love the versatility they offer.   Especially, how I can layer them in different ways for fall!  This plaid top is perfect for the cooler temperatures and my new favorite jeans are a match made in heaven.  The plaid print and the tuxedo seam are also spot on for the borrowed from the boys trend which is quite popular this fall but with a definite feminine twist.

Borrowed From the Boys: Tux, Button Down and Vest

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I managed to stay dry and really got into the cool weather on Sunday.  I mean the leaves haven’t changed color, and the air has not been crisp so I had to take my 54 degree weather and run with it!

I am a little obsessed with red right now – it is not a color I normally gravitate towards but Mr. Wonderful does love it when I am in red.  If all else fails I throw on my new favorite red lipstick (get it here).  I wanted to get into the fall spirit by keeping everything else black.  These are my absolutely new favorite pants – they are black denim with crazy amounts of stretch (yeah) and the added details of the tuxedo stripe and ankle zippers are spot on perfect.  I can not stop wearing them and look forward to styling them in the next few weeks.  Fringe is still very hot for fall and Christian Louboutin was way ahead of the curve when I bought these several years ago.  I have listed my current favorite fringe shoes down below. The addition of the blazer polished up the entire outfit and I was ready for meetings, brunch and drinks.
