Lia Molly: Unique organic knitwear

Increase the mileage on your favorite summer dresses.  All it takes is one of these new Lia Molly sweaters and you’re good to go. Throw a colorful cover-up on over just about anything for a sum that is greater than its parts.

Lia Molly rust and gold sweater, $157; grey and white striped jersey dress by Bluebird, $44; Seychelles gold oxfords, $113; filagree and rose earrings by Verdier Contemporary, $40.

For a grey day…

Grey wool pencil skirt with a kick, drapey striped top, and a rustic stone necklace… It might not be an obvious combination… but we think those are the best kinds.

French Connection pencil skirt, $148; striped top, $33; locally-made stones and lava rock necklace by Palola, $68; Seychelles black pumps, $93.

Pink Geode

Sometimes you break the bank.  An outfit comes along and you just… go for it! We think this might be one of those times.  We know it’s a little costly and yet we believe it’s worth every penny.

And besides, how fun to wear a show-stopping sequined dress with the most lux/snuggly sweater ever made?

French Connection pale pink sequin dress, $288; Earnest Sewn super-soft cashmere/wool double-breasted sweater, $320; Early Jewelry geode necklace, $84.

Well, it’s one for the money; Two for the show; Three to get ready; Now, go cat go

The smart shopper’s wardrobe is full of fabulous stand-alone pieces that also pair well with others and can be worn over and over again.

Think about how much mileage you could get out of these perfectly fall-colored jeggings. Your chunky sweaters and Frye boots would absolutely sing with these as their counter part.

Also, I swear by my pair of these blue wedges. Worn for over 10 hours on their first time out and not a sore foot in sight… They kill with dresses too.

And lastly who isn’t looking for the perfect updated white shirt? Work appropriate and at the same time super fashion forward and hip. Tuck it in, let it hang out, any which way this is a great piece made by a cool, young NY based fashion line.

Cream silk button-down by Bec and Em, $117; Paige Premium Denim’s Verdugo 5 pocket jegging in cranberry, $145; BC blue suede bootie, $82 (also available in black).  We “scrunch-styled” these jeggings for this outfit but they can be worn many ways.
