my everyday style: fall layering with Old Navy!

This is it friends... the first official scarf sighting of the season! You got that right. I'm sporting a scarf for the first time this fall and I'm pretty thrilled about it.  Fall weather has descended on Michigan (minus a few straggling 80 degree days forecasted this week) and I'm in full on fall mode for outfits. Lightweight layers are key right now because just as fast as I can layer them on for chilly mornings, the clouds will part and I will have to layer them all off again.  I've also officially gotten my first warm drink from Starbucks for the season, so we are in deep friends! (next up... the fireplace, Uggs and pumpkin sightings!)

Old Navy isn't just my destination for my kids' back to school clothes (although, let me tell you - we found some GREAT pieces there!), it's also one of my favorites for classic fall layering pieces. This super soft henley top is perfect on it's own or under a cardigan later this fall.  And I love this hooded jacket (that covers my bum!) for football games or visits to the apple orchards.  Black skinny jeans are my favorite this time of year (so flattering and comfortable) and this pair is perfectly stretchy. And yes, I finally broke down and added a scarf... here I tucked it under the collar of my jacket for an extra pop of pattern, I love camo print for fall and it's such an inexpensive way to add some personality to any outfit.

If you are local, ArtPrize kicks off in a few short weeks and since downtown will be crazy then we decided to pop down to Calder Plaza before the insanity starts. I remember running around the bright orange-red Calder when I was a kid and I remember bringing my kids here as little toddlers to do the same. We still love to hang out here now that my kids are a little older because who doesn't love a little hide and seek between all of Calder's nooks and crannies?

my everyday style: Everlane launches denim today!

One of my favorite brands is launching their denim line today and I couldn't be more excited to help them promote it!  Everlane has LONG been my go-to destination for wardrobe basics.  I am obsessed with their u-neck tees (so soft!), their affordable cashmere and they knock a striped top out of the ballpark. Everlane's affordable and transparent pricing and ethical manufacturing process make them a clear winner in so many ways.  Today they are launching their first ever denim line.  With classic cuts like high- and mid-rise skinny leg or a relaxed boyfriend fit their denim has also earned a spot in my closet now too.  Today I am wearing the mid-rise in bone (love this creamy white!) and the dark rinse in high-rise.  And just FYI, I sized up in both fits... since these jeans are inspired by the classics cuts of the 80's and 90's they have NO stretch... which makes for even more good news: they won't stretch out! The BEST part (you will hardly believe it!) they are only $68.  Yep! Under $70 for premium denim.  I mean, come on, it's no surprise why I'm smitten.

From running weekday errands to weekend pastry runs, these jeans are the perfect addition to my busy mom-life wardrobe.  I seem to have embraced white jeans more this early fall than I did all summer.  I love how they look paired with darker accents like a cozy cotton sweater and a darker bag. With such cool fall mornings lately I've had to bundle up for our usual weekend pastry runs.  Classic high-rise jeans and an easy striped top make for the perfect summer to fall outfit foundation.  You can pile a bunch of extra layers on as needed and then peel them off as the day goes on.  It's basics like these that I depend on to look pulled together and feel comfortable all day long.
