Top 5 Favorite Hats

top 5 favorite hats rachel puccetti between two coasts janessa leone wool hat rachel puccetti top 5 favorite hats rachel puccetti Top: Caslon, Denim: Rag & Bone, Shoes: Chloé, Bag: Prada, Hat: Janessa Leone (similar here), Sunnies: Karen Walker, Necklace: Gorjana, Lips: Lipstick- Mehr

When it comes to accessories, hats are by far my favorite! I seriously could collect these wool fedora hats, ha! Not only do I love how they’re the perfect finishing touch to just about any outfit, but it means I don’t have to do my hair…#winning! During the summer I love them with feminine dresses and shorts, and during the fall I love pairing them with, well…just about everything! The possibilities are endless when it comes to styling these hats in the fall, whether it’s a sweater and jeans/leggings, a cute dress and booties, a moto or utility jacket, or just with denim and a tee!

Today I wanted to share my top 5 favorite hats with you all as we start thinking about our fall wardrobes! I also wanted to mention that while some of these hats may seem a little pricey, I promise they are well worth the investment! You will get SO much use out of them, and they will hold up perfectly! One of my favorite things about hat brands like Janessa Leone or Rag & Bone, is that they come in sizes. So often I’ll find an inexpensive hat, but they’re so tight on my head! (Maybe that’s a personal problem? lol!) It’s so nice to choose your size so that it’s comfortable all day long. You wouldn’t believe me if I told you how many compliments I get every time I wear one of my hats. I seriously have some of the funniest stories about people stopping dead in their tracks or going out of their way to come and compliment it. I knew I loved them, but I guess I’m not the only one! And you will too!

When it comes to dresses, I can’t say no to a pretty bell sleeve! I just love how they can turn an otherwise simple dress into a stunning statement piece. I am so excited about today’s post, as I’m sharing another look from my travels in Paris earlier this summer, featuring the perfect bell sleeve dress!

Milly will always be one of my favorite designers, so when I came across this dress I not only knew that I had to have it in my wardrobe, but that it was just the type of dress I’d been looking for for Paris! This look couldn’t have been easier, but was still trés chic, which is exactly what you need for a full day exploring Paris! Anytime that I can slip into a dress and instantly feel fabulous is a win in my book! Just pair with your favorite bag and shoes, and it’s as easy as that!

This bell sleeve dress truly is the perfect dress to have in your wardrobe. It’s that one that you’ll pull out time after time, perfect for any occasion or event that might come your way! Whether worn during the day with a cute sandal, or dressed to impress for a glamorous evening, this dress will get you there! Plus, it comes in just about every color, some colors are even on sale right now! I also found a nearly identical version (listed above) for under $140! Don’t hesitate to add such an essential dress to your wardrobe, ladies!

Hello, loves! I am SO excited to finally share my room reveal with you all! It was definitely one of my most requested posts, and after adding a few finishing touches over the last few weeks, I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I hope you do too!

I wanted my room to be light and bright, and be a place that was always pretty and relaxing! I went with mostly white bedding, and added soft touches with pillows and cozy throws. I knew I wanted to incorporate my favorite color combo of blush pink and grey, and I just love how all the grey accents and pops of pink make the room cozy, yet still chic! I couldn’t help but add a few parisian touches too! This gorgeous mirror and my Paris prints are some of my favorite pieces in my room! Who doesn’t want to go to bed dreaming of Paris?

I think you will be as excited to find as I was that just about everything in my room is very affordable while appearing to be high end, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality of it all! I hope you’ll find that this is perfect for the girl on a budget! I even have a few Ikea hacks in my room! This dresser has been fantastic, and I’m obsessed with how the handles turned out that I added on from Hobby Lobby (so easy!) It doesn’t get much better than finding such a large and pretty piece of furniture (with tons of storage) for under $200!! These shelves that I spray painted gold (only $50!) are the perfect piece to display my handbag collection! I think that corner with my shoes and handbag collection might be my favorite little part of my room, ha!

This gorgeous headboard I ordered from Target is my everything! I seriously can’t recommend it enough! It’s just as pretty in person, and truly is great quality. They are always having some sort of furniture sale, so I got an amazing deal on it, but it looks like I could’ve spent thousands on it! At the end of a long day, I can’t wait to cozy up in bed with a good book and one of my favorite candles burning!

I also want to mention my wall color. It’s Benjamin Moore ‘Nebulous White’, and it turned out to be the perfect color. If you’re someone that wants a soft, bright room, but you don’t want to commit to fully white walls, I think you would love this color! It looks fantastic with a white palette, and has a subtle blue/grey tint.

I hope you this room reveal gave you a little bit of room inspiration, and if you have any questions about anything, please let me know!! XO, Rachel

The countdown to Friday is on, just one more day! Today I wanted to share a look that is not only perfect for the weekend, but features a piece that I am totally obsessed with…utility jackets! They’re something that I honestly wear year-round, especially as we head into pre-fall style! Right now I love them paired with denim shorts and sneakers, and during the fall you’ll find that they’re one of your most-worn and versatile pieces in your wardrobe, trust me! Whether paired with your favorite booties, a graphic tee or crisp white collared shirt, or your favorite lace cami, you can’t go wrong. Sometimes I even throw mine on with my workout leggings (gotta love the athleisure trend, lol!) I can’t help myself anytime I come across a cute new utility jacket! Which brings me to the topic of today’s post…my top 5 favorite utility jackets!

Madewell and J.Crew always have the best ones! Which one is your favorite? The camo one is next on my shopping list! Xo, Rachel

Outfit Inspiration

Can anyone else believe it’s August? Where did the summer go!? We’ve had a few cooler, rainy days around here, and having just stocked up on fall essentials during the NSale…dare I say I’m starting to get excited for fall, ha! As we head into late summer, I like to start incorporating pieces into my wardrobe that will also be great for transitioning into fall. This is the point where I’m pretty much done buying summer clothing, but it’s obviously still too early and too warm for fall clothing. Today I wanted to share some outfit inspiration with you all as we head towards that in-between-seasons time!

A lightweight sweater, or even a fun kimono, paired with a tee and wedges is one of my go-to looks! I love having a sweater on hand (especially for freezing restaurants & cool nights!), but I can also easily shed the sweater and wear this look with just the tee if it warms up. I even love mixing things up and pairing a cute sweater with cutoffs! I just stocked up on these tees that are the perfect layering piece and such a great price! This look is something that you can easily recreate with your favorite sweater and shoes, and I’ve linked a few of my favs below!

We made it to the weekend, and there’s nothing I love more than a little Saturday style! After a busy week, I live for Saturday when I can throw on a comfy casual outfit and just chill, ha! I love finding ways to make comfy look cute, and this outfit is my current favorite Saturday style. This distressed denim jacket was one of my favorite purchases from the NSale, and I’ve even been pairing it with these moto leggings (on sale!) This grey Leith dress has been a fav of mine since last fall, and I love how cute it looks when worn sporty/casual!

I came across this cute hat earlier this week (only $15!), and knew it would be perfect paired with this dress/jacket combo and some comfy kicks!

I hope you all enjoy your Saturday! X0, Rachel

Here is a look at one of my favorite outfits from this weekend, wearing this darling blue bow shirt that I purchased from the NSale! I love anything with a bow detail, and this top also has buttons up the back–so cute! Also, I have to share my new favorite pair of jeans with you all! They’re crazy comfy, and are such a great price for designer denim right now! I love the dark wash, length and hem. They’ll be perfect for wearing with booties in the fall!

Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me!

Perfect Little NSale Dress

Happy Thursday everyone! Tomorrow’s the day…the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public! Today I wanted to feature one of my favorite items I purchased from the sale, to give you a few ideas while shopping tomorrow! In case you missed my first post from the sale, I shared an outfit inspiration post showing everything I bought and the outfits I created here!

When shopping the sale, I like to find pieces that I know I’ll be able to create multiple fun looks with, including now, and as we head into fall! This floral Hinge dress is seriously the perfect little NSale dress and it’s under $60! It’s SO comfortable and cute, and lightweight so that you can wear it now with sandals. I can hardly wait to pair this little dress with booties and hats in the fall..eek! This dress would go with just about any pair of brown booties from the sale, but I’m especially loving it with these Sam Edelman booties that I purchased, and these Hinge booties that I’m hoping will restock tomorrow in the light tan color! OTK boots would also be a perfect option, too! For size reference, I’m wearing a size small in this dress! It’s currently available in a few sizes (including small!), but will hopefully be available in all sizes tomorrow!

As we head into the cooler days of fall, I’m picturing it paired with a cardigan for an extra layer. I purchased this BP. one in the pretty gold color…how perfect would that be with the floral print of this dress?! You could also do the lighter color as well! For size reference I ordered a large in that cardigan to be a little oversized, but also could’ve worn a medium.

Happy shopping, ladies and please let me know if you have any questions! Xo, Rach

Little Blue Dress

For a dress lover like myself, Rebecca Taylor can do no wrong when it comes to dresses! They are always so perfectly feminine! I purchased this little blue dress earlier in the summer and I have been practically living in it, so you could believe my excitement when I saw that Rebecca Taylor had a similar dress in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! This little blue dress is unfortunately sold out, but the one in the NSale is the perfect updated version for wearing now, and as we transition into fall. The stripes, the sleeves, the ruffles (the sale price!)…it’s just too good, ladies! I shared a photo wearing this dress in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outfit Inspiration post here! While Rebecca Taylor dresses can be on the higher price end, I promise they are SO worth the investment and definitely worth grabbing on sale any chance you get! You will find yourself coming back to them time and time again for multiple occasions.

Stay tuned for an outfit post featuring it later this week, but you can shop it here now so you don’t miss out on it!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I have a love for little blue dresses this summer and you can see one under $40 in this post, and this amazing ruffle maxi here! P.S.- I have to point out these pearl slides I’m wearing above! They are identical to a designer pair (I’ve already gotten SO many comments about it!) but they are just $25! Also, they’re totally comfy!
