Blogger Spotlight: Katie Sands of HonestlyKate

I am so excited to share this post today for two reasons - it is the first in my new Spotlight Series - on NYC Blogger Katie Sands of HonestlyKate. AND I've teamed up with Katie to do a Brinker & Lou giveaway! Head on over to instagram to get all of the details on the giveaway and read on to read the full interview!

Chunky Sweaters + Overalls

You might think that this is an odd combo, but I’ve actually been living in some iteration of this outfit recently. Particularly on days where the temps still require chunky sweaters. I’m not sure if I initially tried this because I couldn’t fathom putting on cropped flares and a sweater one more day or if I just genuinely thought that stuffing bulky overflowing knitted fabric underneath my overalls was a kewl idea. But whichever it was, I’m digging it.

Spring… Is That You?

I’m so bored of my winter uniform that dressing for spring - while not actually freezing in these non spring temps - has actually become a bit of a game. The floral midi dress + booties + long jacket combo has been a real winner for me! Also, white jeans + cowboy boots + a pastel sweater is another five star combo. Give it a whirl and let me know what you come up with.

Today’s topic: leopard print. The trend of the season? If you ask me, absolutely. But if I’m being honest, leopard has always been a staple for me. It’s my neutral....

Wearing My Muggle Clothes Under My Quidditch Robes

December 3, 2017

I’m channeling one of my favorite fictional characters of all time in this velvet number. That’s right! I drew my inspiration for this look from The Boy Who Lived - Mr. Harry Potter himself! It is no secret that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan - I have read and re-read every book and own all of the movies. It is the story of my childhood that I have grown up with and continue to cherish as an adult. I know I am not alone in this. But using the characters from J. K. Rowling’s world or witchcraft and wizardry as sartorial inspiration is definitely something new to me.

Black Friday Gift Guide

November 24, 2017

Sometimes (ahem... every year) Black Friday sales can be super overwhelming. So this year I have combed through the chaos of sale notifications being forced at us. And I have narrowed it down to the best of the best (and even picked my favorite pieces!). Stress free shopping from the comfort of your couch! And don't forget about the leftovers - I'm having apple crumble and a grapefruit for breakfast! I hope that everyone had a safe, beautiful holiday spent with the ones you love.

Consider Velvet Slippers & Dreamy Dresses This Holiday Season

November 22, 2017

I will be sharing more holiday recipes, shopping guides and most importantly heartfelt words over the next few weeks. But today, I bring you this dress. It is the unicorn of dresses, the holy grail if you will. I dare you to put on this dress and not twirl. HAH! I think it might actually be impossible not to feel like the belle of the ball in this dress.

Fashion Wovens For Life

November 18, 2017

Happy Saturday guys!! I have been having a love affair with fashion wovens for awhile now. Normally my favorites involve dramatic sleeve details or interesting necklines. While this shirt has neither of those things - it has something that most of my favorite fashion wovens do not - a kick a** back detail. Oh, and it’s *cropped*. I have worn this top dressed up - paired with a leather midi skirt or - wait for it - a pink feather skirt. And I have also worn it dressed down with jeans and a bomber jacket or my beloved camo jacket. I think that is one of my favorite things about woven tops with an over the top flair - their versatility!!

The Perfect Flirty Dress

November 6, 2017

I love every detail of this flirty dress from the high neckline to the ruffled hemline. So naturally I wanted to wear it immediately. It is the perfect special occasion piece. But since I didn’t have anything JUST yet, I dressed it down for work or a date night. This leather jacket that I paired it with is perfect for this time of year - it has a quilted lining so it provides a little extra protection from the late fall chill!

Now Let Me Tell You About One Of My Favorite Dresses Ever

October 29, 2017

Let’s talk about *THIS DRESS*. It’s funny, As I began working on this post I noticed that I was putting more pressure on myself than normal. At first, I couldn’t put my finger on why exactly. But the more I think about it the more sure I am that it is because I loved wearing this dress so much that I want the post to do it justice. I want to the images to be perfect and my words to convey just how magical this dress is. So I have decided to go with pure honesty.

Living For Velvet

October 1, 2017

Happy Sunday and happy October! And just like that it’s finally feeling fall.Yesterday, was one of the first days that felt like fall here on the East Coast. Last week it was 80° and sunny and now all of the sudden, you can’t leave home without a jacket. Don’t get me wrong, it is about time. But the seasons are funny that way, in that they sneak up on you even when you know they’re coming.
