The Right... Leather Shorts



I've been on the hunt for the perfect faux leather shorts for a while and when H&M decided to totally kill it with their fall collection, I saw these babies and knew I had to have them.  My old pair was very fitted and sometimes tough to wear so I am welcoming the upgrade.  And I can't wait to style them during this transitional weather.

The Right... Men's Timepiece

Today's post has a little menswear Monday theme with it with some fall fashion inspiration, including a revolutionary new timepiece by Victorinox: I.N.O.X. To celebrate the 130th anniversary of Victorinox, the Swiss Army knife company created a timepiece echoing the unique values of their famous Swiss Army knives: authentic, robust and reliable in all conditions. I.N.O.X. is designed and built to withstand unusual levels of stress, it has passed a battery of 130 ruthless strength tests with flying colors, and is further reinforced with a removable bumper protector composed of nylon and silicone.

I know how important it is for many guys to have a robust, lasting timepiece that is stylish enough for work but can last through sailing, hunting, running and basically keep up with active lifestyles. Check out the video on their website to learn about all of tests this watch went through and to snag one for yourself: Oh and did I mention it comes in black, navy and khaki?
Now on to the best part - I'm giving you a little rundown of one of my favorite menswear looks for fall that would pair perfectly with this watch.  For a casual approach, take a quilted jacket, pair it with a no-iron shirt, some nicely fitting jeans and finish it off with some oxfords or chukkah boots.

The Right... Leopard Dress Remix



Happy Friday!  We made it!  Everything seemed to calm down from fashion week but pick right back up at the career job - funny how that works right?  I'm headed to Chicago today for a short weekend getaway with one of my besties - follow along on my instagram and twitter for all the action.  And if you haven't followed along yet, I'm taking over the Laqa & Co instagram until Sunday - head over there for more of my adventures!


Anyway, onto the good stuff.  When I bought this Ann Taylor dress I knew it'd quickly become a staple in my wardrobe so I decided to challenge myself to style it beyond just one outfit post (and let's be serious.. when these outfit photos were taken it was about a thousand degrees and humid beyond all belief so I wanted to do some transitional styling).

Window Shopping Wednesday: Fall Peep Toe Booties

I have a confession: today's post started out as a "fall lust list" but quickly morphed into a round up of all my favorite peep toe booties when I couldn't decide on just one bootie to feature in said "lust list."  #sorrynotsorry

So when I quickly tumbled down the rabbit hole at two of my favorite shoe retailers (DSW and Nordstrom)  I decided to share the results with you.  I think there's a little something for everyone in this post: fringe, suede, perforated leather, sleek leather, buckles, zippers...  Literally something for everyone.

And the most important question: which pair is your favorite?!

The Right... Weekend at the Races



Happy Monday friends!!  Yes, I realize we're still in the middle of fashion week but I'm taking us back to Labor Day Weekend with this post.  I was invited (along with a bunch of other NYC bloggers) to the Saratoga Race Track for a full day at the races with Americas Best Racing.  I'm sure you remember my post from the Belmont Stakes last year so you can imagine my excitement when I was invited on this trip!  I was also super excited to get a little dressed up and wear my new (and first) Lilly dress (huge thanks to Krista for helping me snag this beauty during their sale!).

Oh and a little housekeeping item, I'm taking over the Laqa & Co instagram this week so make sure you follow along!
