One of my favorite things about fall and winter style (other than being able to wear my white knee high boots 24/7, lol) is the outer wear!! As basic as I know it sounds, fall and winter are my absolute favorite seasons for style. I live for knee high boots, fab sweaters, leather pants, and all the faux fur and fabulous jackets that I can find. Last winter my husband told me I had a “jacket hoarding” problem, and I’m expecting that "problem" to only be amplified this season with all the jackets I’ve already seen online and in store. Its only November and I’ve already gotten 2 new jackets- one being the focal point of today's post! The second you’ll see on here very soo...

When I like an item – I mean REALLY like an item, I find myself wearing it on repeat. Case in point: white boots. I honestly can’t get enough of them. The obsession started last year when ELOQUII showcased white knee high boots that actually fit my calves. I wore them almost daily, bought a backup pair, and cried a little inside when I had to retire them for spring/summer. I ended up making it through my white knee high boot retired sadness with white ankle boots throughout spring and summer, but it just wan't the same.

Since their seasonal retirement, I have been patiently waiting for fall to break them back out, but along the way I also purchased a third pair when I s...

WOW. On this day, five years ago, I hit "publish" on my first ever blog post. I still remember everything about it- where I was sitting, what I was wearing, what I was thinking. I was excited, but not for the future. I was excited to simply have a creative outlet for myself that I hoped would eventually impact other women's lives in a positive way. At the time I had no idea what BITD would grow to be, and I have to admit I'm really f*$king proud of how much I have grown and how much I have accomplished in the past 5 years. I want to also thank you- yes you, reading this post!-  for the support and readership through the years- it honestly means the world to me....

I’ll be first to admit that I am not as much of a fan of shopping for work clothes. I personally have much more fun shopping for and buying all the over-the-top fun sequin, pink, printed goods that I normally wear on the weekend. I almost feel like I live a style double life sometimes given the fact that I wear more subdued clothing during my 9-5 full-time work hours, and then literally anything goes during nights and weekends.

Since I don’t love shopping for work clothes as much, I enlisted some help from my Trunk Club stylist to send me some killer work pieces for fall, after realizing I needed a little refresh. I’ve been utilizing Trunk Club now for over a year and a...

Can I get a huge high five for fall, ya'll? (sending virtual hive-fives all around!)

Now that the weather has FINALLY dropped below 70 in DC, I'm pumped for all the clothing, shoes, and accessories to go with it- sweaters, denim, OTK boots, scarves, and TWEED print! Since I've peeped tweed, windowpane, and plaid suits all over the NYFW street style scene for the past two seasons, I'm telling you its going to be huge this fall and into winter. And to be honest, I can't get enough of it! I love the look of a polished tweed skirt suit paired with knee high boots or a plaid suit with dad sneakers for some retro vibes! 

One of my favorite past times is to look at vintage and...
