After a week full of red carpets and shopping trips, it’s time to get comfy refocus on what’s already in our wardrobes. Namely, graphic tees– you know you have at least one. Whether yours showcases a phrase or a picture or a sports team logo, doesn’t matter, it looks haute with more than jeans or leggings.
My favorite way to wear graphic tees is to mix their casual vibe with something more structured or formal. I love the comfort of a tee and blazer or tee with tailored pants and loafers when I’m working with clients. But, when I want to retain that comfort yet glam it up, I look to a fierce skirt and heels. The go-to in my own closet is a faux leather fit & flare skirt, but I love the idea of the flirty white fluted skirt in this inspiration photo. The light color and sleek silhouette add an air of sophistication to the look. Bonus, it’s easily tamed to be work appropriate. Get the look with the outfit below, as always click to shop or learn more about the individual pieces. Happy weekend, Foxes. xo
I’m usually all about color and prints, but lately, I’ve been feeling layered neutrals, especially camel. There’s just something about the rich, caramelly color that reads warm, effortless and expensive on cold days.
Case in point? This fashion week streetstyle snap, which inspired the outfit collage below (click to shop and learn more about each piece). I love how very classic shapes in a very classic color become very modern when mixed with surprise pops of color and texture.
It’s easy to look this chic, just combine a handful of like-hued staples: trench coat, crisp white blouse, pencil skirt and, my fave, a great pair of shades. Bonus? Each looks equally chic solo, so you’ll get tons of wear from every one. A couple of tips if you try this look: 1. it’s OK if the pieces don’t match perfectly, you want that variation of shades so you don’t look like a blob of sameness 2. make sure the pieces you pick are warm and have deep color, without that it’s just tan. Happy shopping, Foxes!

After college, I moved from LA to DC with a closet full of sundresses and flip-flops. I held out as long as I could, but when winter set in my first year, I was desperate for warm clothes and shoes. So, I hit the shops and made a major rookie mistake: I bought the (most fashionable) warmest sweaters, sturdiest boots and heaviest coats possible. Awesome outdoors. Not so awesome indoors. Five minutes and I turned into a gross, sweaty mess. Runny make-up and dehydration, that’s how this California girl learned the lesson of lean winter layers.
Earlier this week, I shared some of our favorite layering tips for looking cool while staying warm with you. Today, I’m showing you how to pull ’em all together and serving up some of my favorite vest and belt combos (I’m obsessed with this!), layered jacket picks and hats to finish your look. Of course, click for more styling tips or to shop the look on Keaton Row. Here’s to being chic and cozy this winter, Foxes. Happy weekend. xo

I’ve thought about virtual styling for a while. Sharing my styling talents from the comfort of my computer sounded awesome to me. I was just never sure how. Which is why, when I learned about the new site Keaton Row, I was excited to get started.
Keaton Row is an online personal styling service that is absolutely free (not a typo) to use. Stylists like me work with clients to create virtual, personalized Lookbooks based on needs and requests they define in a simple questionnaire. We earn commission from Keaton Row’s super stylish retailers like Nordstrom and ASOS based on client purchases. Clients never pay more than what retailers charge on their own sites. No hidden costs to you. And there’s no obligation to buy from a Lookbook (even though I’ll hope you do!)
If free personal styling advice weren’t sweet enough, I can also create and share shop-able public Lookbooks on anything that inspires me. I shared the first of these Friday on Facebook and Pinterest in honor of National Wear Red Day. And, I’ve created a few additional basic Lookbooks for occasions like work and date-night, as well as a mini-boutique of my favorite denim by body type, for your shopping pleasure.
While it’s not at all a substitute for the personalized attention of one-on-one styling, Keaton Row will be a great resource for you Foxes who could use my advice on what to wear for a special event, or who want some inspiration for how to amp up a specific area of you wardrobe.
I’d love to know what you think of the idea. And, if you have any style challenges that would make a great public Lookbook, let me know in comments or on Facebook. If you’re ready for some personalized advice, become a Keaton Row client and get your very own Lookbook!
Hope to see you all online soon! xoxo
