Like A Diamond

Some of you may have noticed that my style aesthetic has changed. If you browse the FabAve archives you’d notice a lot more bold colors, prints, patterns, and piles of statement baubles layered upon each other. Within the last couple months, maybe even the last year, I’ve gone through a different editing process. Instead of putting together 'OMG blog-worhty' looks I now think about the woman I want to be and how I’d like to express that woman to the outside world. Now don’t get me wrong, you’ll still see plenty of looks with print mixing, bold and bright colors, and plenty of thrifted gem, but because I’m craving neutral looks, colors and prints right now, that’ll be a lot of the essence that you’ll get from me, from FabAve.

Anyway, all that to say that when Karen Kane sent me this diamond print dress I knew I had to take the fuss out of styling it and let it shine, like the diamond that it was. And it’s navy. LOOOVING navy right now! Can’t wait to pair it with tights, tall boots and a cozy knit sweater over top. The possibilities are endless!

Blue Blazer Black

Let me just say that now that I’ll be experiencing the full spectrum of the seasons that I’ll have to prepare myself for what’s ahead. Holy wind in the hair, Batman! On this particular day the fella and I attended a birthday dinner for a dear friend of ours and while I was excited for the low temps I was not prepared for the gusts of wind that came along with that. I guess I’ll have to get used to that, huh? 

On another note, drawstring pants. Best invention ever! These Karen Kane pants are like a pajama-dress pant hybrid. Pure perfect that will get me through the Fall, that’s for sure!

Can we please talk about these faux leather leggings from Karen Kane? I absolutely love the little bit of edge they bring to an otherwise casual outfit, elevating it from the average to the oh so fabulous! Karen Kane was kind enough to send these puppies my way and while I was going to wait to wear ‘em once they arrived I just couldn’t help myself. For this particular day they paired great with a thrifted denim jacket, a light weight sweater, and classic chuck’s but I’ve already dreamed up a handful of outfit ideas for these babies. I see caged wedges and a peplum top in their future, for sure!

How would you style these faux leather leggings up?
