Hello Ladies! This week is all about workwear, and I’m starting with one of my favorite skirt purchases from the big Nordstrom sale!  Obviously, I fell in love with this pencil skirt because it was gray.  The details on it though are what really make this skirt special.  The pinstripe gives it a professional office vibe, and the buttons and small slit make this standout from your basic gray pinstripe pencil skirt.  It’s the perfect skirt to go from work to happy hour.

I have paired this skirt with my teal top, but I really love it paired with a fitted black top.  This turtleneck is a fall and winter basics must have!  It’s super stretchy and really comfortable for being so fitted.  I can’t wait to pair it with all the  jeans and boots soon!  You could also pair it with a dark skinny jean and heels for date night.

My weekend wedding was so much fun ya’ll, and my dress was amazing!  You can see it HERE from my IG post.  After a busy busy few weeks, I’m so excited to have a super low key couple of weeks coming up.  It feels good to have a few days and weekends to just chill and relax at home before the holiday season begins.  Hope your week is going well!

Happy Friday!  I’m sticking with my summer to fall transitional outfit theme of the week with this adorable coral sleeveless top.   Since Texas will still be on the warmer side for another month or more, I like to buy lightweight sleeveless or short sleeve tops in pretty fall colors.  The color makes me feel fall, but the style helps me survive the heat a little. This top also has super cute shoulder detailing too.  I think my hair covers it in all the pictures….

I kept this outfit super casual with my new AG jeans.  I love to cuff my skinny jeans and pair them with heels and mule sandals.  I think the cuff works so well with these taupe mule sandals.  These sandals have been getting a bit of wear over the past month with many of my jean outfits.  I love that they have a casual vibe, but with the right dress can also have a slightly dressier feel to them.

I am heading to a friend’s wedding this weekend.  I cannot wait to dance the night away.  Per my usual, I ordered a dress from Rent the Runway.  Stay tuned to Instagram for the big reveal. This one is a total stunner! Ya’ll have a great weekend!!

Hello ladies!! Well, I am officially back in Texas and home from my first New York Fashion Week.  It was a whirlwind a few days, and I can’t wait to share more with you soon.  The last few days, we experienced some nice fall weather, but back in Texas means back to the heat and all my summer faves like this black and white look.  Most of the runway shows I attended featured tons of black and white looks, so I think this a perfect post fashion week outfit.

This black and white cami was a late summer purchase.  I love pairing camis with jeans for a date night or to grab a drink or dinner with friends.  This one pairs perfectly with all the jean colors, but I love the contrast with the white jeans.  These brown booties provided the perfect color pop for this black and white look.  The suede and western style helps make this outfit look more fall while still helping me stay cool.  The western vibe of these boots also made me want to add a bit or turquoise into the overall look.  Hello gorgeous statement earrings.

I’m taking today off work to relax, recover and catch up on blog work.  I hope ya’ll have a fabulous week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday!! I’m currently writing this while sipping a glass of wine en route to NYC!  I’m so excited and grateful for this opportunity to attend fashion week, and I cannot wait to share my trip with all of you.

While you wait for those blog posts, I have a little fall work outfit inspiration for you.  I have been adding more skirts to my work wardrobe lately.  I love separates for work, so you can mix, match, and create a variety of outfits.  This striped pencil skirt was the perfect addition.  The black and white stripe makes it work with all the solid color tops.  I love it with this pretty teal blouse.  The bow detail is the perfect touch to make it just a little special.  It’s a stretchy material, so super comfy to sit in all day or walk around.

I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by this week.  If you want to follow along on my NYFW fun, be sure to check out my Instagram (@karenkocich)!
