Cable Knit Crop

photo IMG_7943_zpse99ad884.jpg

A cable knit crop sweater. Seems like an oxymoron, huh? Why would one want to own a crop sweater when its’ main purpose is to keep one warm and cozy? Let’s ponder that question, shall we?. For fashion. That’s why. 

On this particular evening I layered my cable knit crop sweater over top a stripe Anthro favorite (last seen here) for a little intrigue to an otherwise simple outfit. I could seriously live in looks like this for the next couple of months. A gal sure can try!

Travel Light

photo IMG_7895_zpsebd1e9e2.jpg

The perfect travel outfit, if you ask me, includes a pair of slouchy boyfriend jeans, an oversize sweater with a fun detail, a floppy hat (which I suggest should be worn during travel versus packing it and risk deformation), and classic, comfy Chucks. It’s a simple equation that I tend to follow when hitting the road and driving for a long period of time. And the best part is that these were all pieces I planned on remixing during our mini vacay anyways. Light packing at it’s finest, my friends. 

What do you like to wear while traveling?

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!

10 Ways to Wear Leather

 photo leather_zps263d59b1.jpg

When we all think of fall fashion the standard trends that come to mind are preppy plaids, cozy cable knits, and of course edgy leather. The season just wouldn’t be complete without a little leather, or A LOT, am I right? This fall I plan on styling up my trusty leather pieces (or faux leather) in fun and innovative ways, or just with the plain old stuff. HA!

So here are some ways I’ve styled leather in the past…
