Plaid isn't just meant to be paired with jeans anymore [as seen here]. Sure that's an easy weekend look - but lately I love the idea of dressing up a plaid shirt with a faux leather skirt. Both pieces are so versatile and worth grabbing to add to your closet.

So, funny story: I was out early Saturday morning taking photos for work when a bird in the tree I was standing under decided to poop on my Coach trench coat. It was at that point I decided the picture session had to end as I searched for the nearest shout pen or a cute band aid. That little incident, although it could've been worse, made me hesitant to wear my jacket outside again but why let a little bird stop me? It obviously has good taste! And every girl needs a good trench coat in her arsenal.

Some of my favorite things come in layers: cake and fall outfits. It's been chilly enough to wear several layers, so I decided to splurge on this BB Dakota Moto Jacket because it's a perfect piece to include in fall layering. This time, I threw it over top some sequins and chambray but it would also be perfect layered over a dress or turtleneck and trousers for work. The possibilities are endless - so get yourself a fab jacket and layer it up- piece of cake!

One fall trend I have been dying to try: camo. And once I saw Gap's take on camo skinny jeans I was sold.... and decided to buy them online. I asked fellow bloggers Erin and Ally about the fit since they already made the purchase - and so blossomed a little DC Blogger collaboration! If you don't know how to wear camo skinnies (or any camo for that matter) let us help! Believe it or not, you can dress up camo with a flowy top or chunky sweater! I can't wait to play with more ways to style these skinny jeans. (By the way, they fit true to size for me.)

Don't forget to check out how Erin and Alison styled theirs!

Consider the little black dress another wardrobe staple - especially for fall (in addition to faux leather and pencil skirts). Wear it solo or throw a blazer over top... either way it's a classic that never gets old. Where is your favorite LBD from?

Pencil skirts never go out of style and who knew I'd find the perfect one at Target? The material is lightweight yet sturdy enough and stripes - so versatile and classic, duh. (I might have bought it in black, too.) I consider my double purchase a great investment since I'm now dressing up more for the office. Target, you still rock!
