Stop carrying that canvas laptop case to work that HR gave you for free when you were hired. Grab yourself a fabulous, and fashionable, tote bag for work which is both classic, and on trend for the fall season; and beyond!

You might be looking at the six totes I picked out and you might be thinking, “Gee, they’re mostly black!” Well, I love black bags for multiple reasons. The number one reason being they transcend season, so you can wear a black bag throughout the year without worrying about looking like you have last seasons bag. Black also hides dirt, and work bags are often set on the floor and tossed around. It’s important to have a sturdy bag which hides dirt that might be picked up during a busy work day.

Although these bags are classic black, there is an affordable and trendy animal print option, as well as texture. Most of these black bags have texture, which adds something interesting and chic to classic black. I’m thinking of picking up the quilted black tote bag this season. I love the convertible strap, and the chic look of the horizontal quilts.

It has been such a cold fall season! As we head into winter here in the San Francisco Bay Area, the weather is getting chillier, and chillier! Due to this fact, I find myself reaching for my turtleneck sweater a few times per week!

A turtleneck sweater is such a great piece on its’ own, or layered under a coat. I love how it can be casual when paired with jeans, or look pulled together with an office appropriate skirt. A turtleneck sweater can also be spiced up with long necklaces, or a blanket scarf! Love that!

In the photos above, I paired my favorite turtleneck sweater with a warm, wool blend skirt from last year. I adore this skirt! I originally purchased it for fashion week in September 2014. It worked out well in my suitcase since it was easy to pair with different tops. I love how it is black in back, and grey in front!

In order to wear a skirt in the 40 degree weather we have been enduring lately, I have found my boots are a life saver. They keep my legs warm, and allow me to wear skirts for church or work meetings. If you have been following along, you have seen me write about how fabulous these boots are in past articles. They are extremely comfortable, I can walk for miles in them, and they are currently on sale! Fabulous!

Which pieces do you find yourself reaching for often in order to stay warm? Do you brave wearing skirts in cold weather, or do you stick with warm pants?

Loafers, creepers and oxfords for fall 2015

creepers, oxfords and loafers for fall 2015

Loafers, creepers and oxfords are a huge trend for the fall 2015 season. With the menswear trend continuing from last year, it is no wonder that this trend in shoes is still hotter than hot.

Creepers, loafers and oxfords not only complete a menswear inspired ensemble, they also offer a nod to 90’s inspired styles which are still very much on trend on the streets. Oxfords, loafers and creepers were a huge trend in footwear in the early 1990’s. So it is only natural that this trend in shoes return when waistlines on denim are on the rise, cut-outs on jeans are considered du rigueur, and crop tops are perfectly acceptable shirts.

The fabulous part about this footwear trend, is that it is comfortable! The lug soles found on loafers, creepers and oxfords offer extra comfort for the footbed. They also offer traction in icy conditions, and during rain. Love that!

Creepers, loafer and oxfords can be worn with both casual attire, and business casual ensembles. They look fabulous with boyfriend jeans, overalls, and full or a-line skirts. This is considered the “street version” of the trend.

For a menswear look, oxfords, loafers and creepers look amazing with full or wide leg trousers paired with a blouse, shirt or sweater. An unstructured blazer could complete the look if one needed an extra layer in the office. This is how the trend was shown on the runways for fall.

The lug sole is an important aspect of this shoe trend. Creepers, oxfords and loafers for fall 2015 can be found with traditional, flat soles; but these are considered a more classic version of the style. For the fashion-forward version of this shoe trend, look for 90’s friendly lug soles. You will love the lug sole since it adds height, like a platform, and grips the ground during inclement weather. Love that!

I found a few fabulous pairs of oxfords, loafers and creepers around the web and assembled them into the shopping widget below. I hope you love them! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
