From the words of Rachel Zoe, “Comfort Just Got Chic”. With fall fashion all around us, it’s not only important to think about what we’re wearing on the outside, but also what’s underneath that! The Jockey collection as preferred by Rachel Zoe takes a whole new twist on what to wear under your favorite fall looks- providing comfort and coverage, all the while remaining chic and stylish. The Skimmies Slipshort (a modern take on the slip) is absolutely wonderful. As someone who wears many dresses and skirts (and also lives in a windy city…no further explanation needed) the Skimmies Slipshort is a life saver!

In celebration of fall fashion, I’m helping Jockey launch their Skimmies Secrets Pinterest Contest with a chance for you to win one of three $500 bank cards and a week’s worth of Jockey Skimmies! My must-have fall looks are pinned to the Skimmies Secrets contest pinboard – be sure to check them out when you add your pins!

To enter:

  • Follow @Jockey on Pinterest and pin your ultimate fall outfit you’d wear over Skimmies Slipshorts

Best of luck and have fun pinning!

Easy Rider

Vince Coat (from last year, similar current season one), ASOS Tee, Joe’s Jeans (old, similar pair), J.Crew Scarf (25% off w/ code: SHOPNOW), Clare Vivier Bag (clutch version), Converse Sneakers, Ray Ban Sunglasses

My husband and I rented bikes this past weekend to get around the city and spend some time outside in the beautiful sunshine (we were also really craving vegan donuts from the Ferry Building!) We absolutely love riding bikes and are starting to think about purchasing some since we’re always heading to Sports Basement to rent them. Any thoughts or recommendations on bikes you’ve had and loved?

On another note, this Vince coat is one of my all-time favorite purchases. I bought it last Fall (seen on the blog here & here) and practically lived in it all year. It’s so cozy and the over-sized fit allows you to really bundled up underneath with chunky knits at all. While it’s no longer available online, they have a similar version this season here and here

A few other wrap coats I love here…
