Off Duty


Although I tend to favor sophisticated & tailored styles most of the time, my weekends are usually spent in casual & comfortable pieces.  I recently picked up this open-front sweater/jacket hybrid (during a 40% off friends & family sale) & it's the ideal piece for wearing over tissue-thin tees or adding more substantial layers underneath when the weather gets colder.  I love styles like this that strike just the right balance between cozy & modern...and honestly, any combination of plaid & leather is a winner in my book.
















What I'm wearing:
Saks Fifth Avenue sweater (I'm wearing a Small), Forever 21 chambray shirt (similar under $25 or under $55), Forever 21 striped top (also similar here), c/o Old Navy jeans, c/o JustFab Taya boots, NastyGal satchel (similar), Zara bracelets (similar), Rings: c/o Prima Donna & Forever 21 (similar)

All In One


One of the questions I get asked frequently is how to layer without adding bulk.  I'm a big fan of piled-on pieces, but I understand not wanting to look bigger than you truly are.  Which is why I love the tops I've seen this season that are a knit & button-down mix all in one piece.  The great thing about a top like this is that the layering is built right in.  The sweater material is stretchy, soft & lightweight + it has the chic details of a chiffon shirt sewn in underneath (without adding another full layer to your look).  Genius!














What I'm wearing:
Mango sleeveless coat (similar in black, in gray or in plaid), 
c/o Dorothy Perkins top (25% off w/ code DPFW25; I'm wearing a US 6 Tall - also in regular & petite), 
c/o Old Navy jeansIvanka Trump pumps, c/o ShopLately clutch, Michael Kors watch (similar), 
Vintage bracelets, Zara ring (similar), Forever 21 earrings (similar), Ray-Ban wayfarers

Steals Under $30

One of the great things about this time of year, as we near the holiday season, is that there are so many amazing sales happening.  I do my best to keep a close eye on these and alert you daily of the best deals so you can take full advantage of them.  This recurring SUT series is another fun way to not only show you my hand-picked favorites, but to also provide outfit pairing ideas for items you may already own.  So even if you're on a spending freeze, hopefully this will provide a little inspiration!
