SHOP NOW!: An Any Season Textured & Knit Sweater!


I’m a little sweater obsessed this time of year, though I wish it was consistently cool enough to wear one—at least here on Long Island. As I seek out different color combinations, sleeve lengths, & textures, I always have versatility on my mind, especially if a piece can be worn during the fall-to-winter transition & shift then to spring.

SHOP: Time & Tru textured knit pullover sweater with short sleeves in blue sea combo, mocha splash combo, & peach glaze combo @Walmart ($20.98, available is sizes XS-XXXL).

I love the sleeves on this top, which can be worn over a long sleeve turtleneck & with dark denim jeans or even with a pencil skirt & ankle boots. The top offers more possibilities when layered with a button down or matched up with leggings.

SHOP NOW!: The Coziest Tops for $10!


Each fall, I’m more & more impressed by the affordable & stylish items from Time & Tru @Walmart, especially as each season, they reinvent staple must-haves that prove to be best sellers. This includes a cozy non-sweater top that looks like a sweater.

SHOP: Time & Tru hacci top in teal star, black soot, dark raspberry, green chili / black, winter white, leopard, moonbeam, or papyrus beige @Walmart ($10, available in sizes S-XXXL).

I became a fan of this top during the height of the pandemic, desiring something fashionable enough for a statement necklace during a Zoom meeting, but realistic to wear with leggings when the virtual work day ended. In both real life & through a screen, these tops are sweater-like, but can be paired with trousers & ankle boots or pointe pants & ballet flats, aside from the comfortable leggings or lounge pants for days off with the family.

I’ve added most of these to my cart & can’t wait to assess these latest patterns, always excited to add more leopard & polka dots to my fall wardrobe arsenal. How would you style these tops? Which pattern is your favorite? Would you buy them all for the season?

SHOP NOW!: Top Houndstooth Styles from New York & Company for Fall!


Just as fruit prints & tropical patterns are signature to summer, houndstooth is a symbol of fall as fashion transitions from the lightweight to the heavier layers. In fact, wearing houndstooth is one of my favorite ways to greet the fall, no matter the color combination, although black & white is the more traditional route. I love a modern take on houndstooth with varying sizes, styles, & colors; particularly, the new Check It Out collection @New York & Company. The black houndstooth that we all love to wear with more subdued solids is brightened with more than white as we see bright yellows, kelly green, & even magenta to experiment with this fashion forward menswear-inspired print. I’ve selected a few tops, bottoms, & shoes that are my favorites to recommend anyone who dares to be bold with this striking pattern.

First, I love the combination of houndstooth on these tops with the details over a trimmed neckline, neck-tie bow, & solid collar, which are perfect to match with a pencil skirt & pumps, joggers & ankle boots, or jeans & ballet flats.

SHOP: houndstooth v-neck sweater in morningside yellow (on sale: $41.96, available in sizes XS-XXL), puff-sleeve tie-neck sweater in fuchsia purple (on sale: $41.96, available in sizes XS-XXL), & houndstooth collared blouse in black/white (on sale: $45.46, available in sizes XS-XXL).

Next, houndstooth certainly makes a style statement on the lower half, especially when coordinating with a pullover sweater & layered necklaces, classic tee & statement necklace, or pleated cami & tailored blazer.

SHOP: houndstooth pencil skirt in green fields (on sale: $48.96, available in sizes XS-XXL), pull-on houndstooth bootcut ponte pant in black/white (on sale: $39.00, available in sizes XS-XXL, shop petite here, shop tall here), & petite houndstooth button-waist straight-leg ankle pant in fuchsia purple (on sale: $55.96, available in sizes 00-18).

Playing up houndstooth in your footwear evokes confidence & tons of personality, especially when adding that wow factor to a pinstripe suit & button-down shirt or sweater dress & choker.

SHOP: houndstooth colorblock Madison pump in yellow (on sale: $39.00, available in sizes 6-11) & houndstooth Layla heel in black/white (on sale: $62.96, available in sizes 6-11).
