Trend Alert: Pleated skirts

Fashionkacee geoffroyComment

Pleated skirts are my favorite fall piece of the moment! Pair them with sneakers, booties, flats, sandals, boots … literally seasonless and so feminine! I love a dressed up satin skit, floral print, leopard for texture, or simple chiffon. Any style is a must for your fall wardrobe! Top the look off with a graphic tee, a blouse or a sweater ! The pleats create a slimming silhouette on anyone!

Spring closet refresh with LOFT

Fashionkacee geoffroyComment

With Spring around the corner, I’ve been itching to add some Spring pieces to refresh my closet a bit. I was on the hunt for work wear and some casual items to elevate my day to day outfits. Knowing I could hit two birds with one stone and find things in both of those categories, I headed to LOFT. Cutest Spring stuff. I all about lost my mind for this blush pink blazer and leopard top. I also found some great basics, like this striped tee and scalloped shorts. I also adored this sweet sweater with bow detail. I wanted to share how I put together each of my outfits and how you can mix and mingle to pieces to maximize the possibilities.

See!!! I told you the blazer was to cute to resist!!!! I love the tapered fit that really makes it universally flattering, the soft blush tone of the pink and it’s oversized buttons on the sleeves. I topped this super soft striped sweater with the blazer and added a great pair of distressed denim. To complete the look I cuffed the blazer to give a casual feel and added a long necklace. This is a great outfit for brunch with friends or running around town.

This next look is great for the office or really any occasion that merits a bit more of a polished look. These tie waisted pencil pants are so comfortable! They have stretch and the highwaist is so flattering for nipping in the waistline with the cute bow detail. I chose the denim color but there are other options which were so cute. I added a tucked in pink and blue blouse for a polished look that again helps taper the waist and show off the pants cut. I accessorized with some blush pink tassel earrings to give the look an unexpected more modern feel. You could add nude heels like I have done here or swap them out for some flats or sandals too. These pants are so versatile!

Spring work wear

This next look is hands down my staple look. I love a stripe and the settle grey and white combo of this super soft sweater are just perfect. I love the tunic style of the cut and it has side slits to allow for room at the waist. I paired the sweater with a chunky marbleized chain necklace to elevate the casual feel of it. I also love fresh white jeans! I wear them all year round. This pair has a cute expected frayed detail at the ankle which I love.

Spring outfit

There is nothing more classic than a sheath dress. I find the cut of this style of dress to be so feminne but also power suit adjacent. This little number has a great textured tweed and frayed edge. The fit is so great for really any body type because of the nipped waist. I wear a petite in most stores in dresses because I find that the hemline hits my 5”4’ frame better. I added the blush pink tassel earrings and nude heels with a pop of pink on the lips. This dress would be great paired with the blush pink blazer too! Perfect for church, the office or Easter!

Spring outfit

I paired the blazer with this soft floral sweater and navy blue shorts. These shorts are so beautifully made and have a nautical inspired gold button detail on the hips. This look paired with nude heels and tassel earring is super sharp for the office or any more professional event. It could be super cute for date night or drinks with friends. You could even kick off the heels, swap the earrings for simple pearls and add some sandals for running around town.

Spring outfit

Talk about casual cute with this adorable striped tie front button up! This top is so light and airy that will be a great pick for when our weather heats up. I have it paired with crisp white denim and sandals for super casual , great errand running look.

Inspired by: Black Leather Jackets

black leather jacket

Look one is the perfect athleisure approach to a leather moto jacket.  Layer on your leather jacket  over a grey sweater and white t-shirt for a cooler day.  Add comfy yoga pants and black sneakers and you are set for a day of errands.


Look two is one of my favorites.  Pair your leather moto jacket over a comfy black dress for an edgy feminine mix.  Add some studded sandals and practical tote bag for a day of running around with the kids or lunch with friends. 


Look three brought to you by the queen of effortless chic, Jen Aniston.  No one does it better! Top your cozy scarf over a leather jacket, add black jeans and tan riding boots for the chicest way to run around town.

Inspired by: Yellow Rain Coat

nordstromsale, SALE, Fashionkacee geoffroyComment

Look one is so comfy cozy and perfect for chilly weather while site seeing on vacay or boating!  Let's be honest it's pretty cute for grocery shopping too!  Love this easy, casual look that reads so classic and nautical. The bright yellow hooded raincoat is such a fun departure for winter neutrals but can be toned down with a classic striped top, black skinny jeans and topped with a grey beanie for cooler days.  


I adore this whole uber casual look.  So relaxed and yet still so chic!  Pair your yellow hooded rain coat over a classic striped button up.  Add boyfriend jeans and tan booties and you are ready for a day of brunching, shopping or errands. 


Inspired by: Tan Trench Coats

Fashion, nordstromsale, SALEkacee geoffroyComment

Look one is highlighting the trench coat as a layering piece over leather leggings, a simple white tee and a chunky geometric scarf or luxe poncho.  This look paired with tan heels is sexy but still uber chic.  You could also skip the heels and throw on some comfy tennis shoes (or these and these) to keep the look more casual. 


Look two is one of my favorites and just exudes effortless chic!  This is a look that Meagan Markle sports a lot! Pair your classic trench with a chambray button up blouse, tucked into stone washed skinny jeans.  Top the look off with black booties, black oversized sunglasses and sleek black clutch for cocktails with friends or date night. 


Inspired by: Blush Moto Jackets

Fashion, SALE, nordstromsalekacee geoffroyComment

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access is here!  I've been scooping up great staple peices!  I'm always inspired by simple, timeless fashion.  I like to find a piece and work a look around that special piece to create multiple looks.  I've created this series to help you put together looks all from pieces on major sale right now at Nordstrom!  

I love a moto style jacket and find them so versatile.  Blush has quickly become  a neutral shade and can be paired well with light or darker tones.  The feminine color mixed with the edgier style of a moto jacket is the perfect mix of sweet and sassy.  I love these two takes on styling a blush pink moto jacket.  



Look one is a monochromatic grey look of grey skinny jeans and chunky grey sweater with a pop of softness in a tan bag and blush jacket.  Pair this look with an animal print flat for unexpected twist.

Look two is using the feminine color of the jacket with a flirty floral dress like this , this, or this.  underneath.  The structure of the jacket will edge up this look just perfectly! Add a sweet blush pink block heel to finish off the look. This is a great look to take you into Spring as well.

Spring Sunday whites

Fashionkacee geoffroyComment

Spring has sprung and nothing gets me more excited that outdoor fun on a sunny day!  I grabbed my favorite new book and something sparkly and planted myself for an afternoon of lounging this weekend. It was heavenly!  

Tobi off the shoulder top

Since our weather has been so nice I decided for a fresh white look for the day.  I paired my new favorite off the shoulder top from Tobi with a crisp white denim skirt.  Topped my look with a hat and off I went. 

Tobi off the shoulder top

I love whites for any occasion.  This Tobi off the shoulder blouse is just the perfect top!  I could pair it with denim cutoffs for a super casual look or  a flow midi skit for something a bit more dressy.  It's so versatile.

How to pack a capsule wardrobe for vacation

Travel, Fashionkacee geoffroyComment

We are off to a couple big trips this year and I am the self proclaimed queen of packing practical and light.  I am a firm believer in a capsule wardrobe and think this premise is super helpful when it comes to packing for a getaway. Let's be real ladies we don't need all the options! Save your sanity and keep it light.  Here is my go to method and some tips and tricks I've found tried and true when it comes to packing with the capsule mindset.


Tips to get you started: 

1.  Plan your itinerary.  Will you be walking all day, everyday? Lounging at the beach? Enjoying dinners out?  What will be filling your days up? 

2.  Check your destination's weather for when you will be there.  Rainy? Don't pack your leather shoes or jackets that aren't waterproof.  Gloomy? Layers will be key.  Windy? Plan on no hats and chic hair situations to not look crazy windblown  Hot? Think loose fitting and light fabrics. 

3.  Check out your destination's color pallet.  This may seem odd but if you dress with the pallet of your location in mind you will always look perfectly chic in every photo.  This will also help you keep on track with a cohesive packing color pallet to allow to mixing and rewearing items. 

4.  This is always something I think about too... I like to eat and enjoy myself on vacation so I purposely avoid tight fitting outfits so I can be as full and comfy as needed.  I may add a belt to cinch in my waist for some shape or a fitted jacket but I keep my outfits loose fitting for the most part for my eating!  

5.  Decide on hair looks.  I wash my hair about once a week so I plan accordingly.  I usually start my trip with fresh hair then plan for hats and accessories like headbands and clips for the rest of the trip so I can avoid traveling with a million styling products.  Dry shampoo is the best and plan for wash and wear styles like cute braids.  If you must, plan on one curling iron to touchup any simple styles.   

I have sort of a fool proof science when it comes to my packing.  I go day by day and pack for the whole day each day at a time so I don't forget something.  I visualize the day from start to finish and pack literally each item as I would envision using it per day. 

With this structure, I rewear a lot of items. I pack two pairs at maximum, one jacket in a neutral color, one pair of sunglasses and one hat. One beach tote that I use as my carry on and one crossbody bag to keep hands free. I also try and pack my swimsuit cover to double as a shawl for chillier evenings. 

This is how my packing would look for a beachy vacation with mulitple different additional outings: 

Tropical packing list

Swimsuits can be worn under denim shorts, green shirt or sarong for beach days.  Breezy sundresses and rompers for exploring local areas or dinners out.  White blouse and denim cut offs or crisp white jeans for more comfy options.
