borrowed from the boys

Stealing from the boys & doing it better! 
This month I am craving "borrowed from the boys" details like ties, tough button downs, and schoolgirl chic loafers. The look might be channeling menswear, but with a definite feminine flair. The cooler temps also have me reaching for rich gem tones, and warm gold accents!

Get all of these hot fall trends at Nordstrom Rack. Pair pencil skirts with chambray tops, or ladylike dresses with boyish loafers and blazersTies and oversized coats add a fun twist to your work outfits!
I am also excited to announce that I am partnering up with Nordstrom Rack for their store opening in Nashville! AND, you can join the pre-opening private shop event with me! Nordstrom Rack private shop events are typically reserved for Nordstrom Reward members and VIPs, but as my readers, Nordstrom Rack wants YOU to join in on the fun too. You could be among the first to shop the new store when the merchandise selection is at its best.

What: Brentwood, TN Nordstrom Rack Pre-Opening Party
When: Thursday October 2, 4 - 8 pm

**UPDATE: Congrats to Marcie R on winning the 1 on 1 styling session! Can't wait to fix you up with some great pieces for Fall!

I am also super excited to be offering 1 on 1 styling for one local reader as well! One person who signs up for the private shopping event will be chosen at random to be styled by me at the event!
