This week we had Donna, another one of our in store stylists, create an outfit with her top picks from our new arrivals. She constructed this fabulous relaxed casual outfit that looks great for getting together with a friend for a cappuccino or running around doing holiday errands! Every piece is ultra comfortable for the girl on the go, and they all work together to create a perfectly styled look that gives a put together - yet effortless vibe. You know the “I woke up like this” look. Hint: if you break it down lots of these pieces work perfectly as gifts for the fashion lover on your shopping list!
Outfit # 1 | Coffee Shop Cutie
Donna first started off by choosing her new favorite pants – the Fidelity Kato cargo in coal, which are made with a soft washed fabric and the right amount of stretch. We love them because the cargo pocket and zippered ankle gives it a hint of moto styling, making them perfect to pair with your leather jacket or wool winter coat. She then grabbed her favorite tee – “Sunday, I love you” by Wildfox and a casual ankle slip on boot by Kenneth Cole. But the soul of this outfit lies in how she built up her accessories. To effectively rock the casual look without looking too basic – you must accessorize! Layer with a great scarf and shoulder bag, and add a long necklace like the Giving Key and classic Daniel Wellington watch. Finish with a hat like this wool fedora in charcoal. Casual meets comfortable meets chic!

Gift Idea # 1 | Giving Keys
The Giving Keys are an innovative company from Los Angeles that create incredible one of a kind necklaces by engraving old keys with inspirational words. The concept behind the collection is that the keys and the word have their purpose renewed over and over again by having you pay it forward, by gifting it to another to inspire them when they need it. Then the company asks you to write them the story of how and why you gave it away – which they then post on their website. Another reason why we love and support this brand is they employ people who are looking to transition out of homelessness. This is gift that truly does keep on giving.

Bourbon 1972: made with age oak, sandalwood and malted violet
