The Stone File: October 2014

all tricks, all treats, all prints

Happy Halloween!

While today's look isn't spooky, it sure is festive! You've probably picked up on this, but I'm slightly enamored with perfecting the art of mixing prints -- especially in a look like this one that combines different textures and prints. The autumn-esque geometric print of the cardigan mixed with subtle metallic threads and stripes results in a finished product that is just heavenly. I also tend to gravitate towards a somewhat androgynous look on occasion so this oversized fluffy bow pays homage to my obsession with bow ties and allows me to achieve the same feeling in a more feminine way.

I almost always mix old and new pieces when I create my "everyday" looks so I've linked where you can purchase the most current pieces down below, and, for the others, I found replacement pieces that are pretty darn close to the ones I'm wearing so be sure to check them out in the credits!

Until next time,

clink clink

Hi everyone!

I thought a little mid-week toasting would be appropriate to cure the hump day blues and what better way to do that than with this beyond darling Wildfox Couture pullover (aka quite possibly the softest thing I've ever put on my body). As an avid online shopper, I hate to admit that I couldn't find this top in the same color that I have on, but I did find the "Rose" color at Bloomingdale's so I've linked that down below! If you're in the Valdosta, GA area, I actually found mine at City Market Boutique (@citymarketboutique) -- I went with a size Small simply because I wanted it to fit a bit oversized, but if you prefer a true fit, order a size down!

Also, make sure to pay special attention to the end of this post for details on how to purchase your very own "The Stone File" Long-Sleeved T-Shirt for only $20! (It's absolutely darling, if I do say so myself).

Love,

the outtakes

Hi everyone!

Today's post is comprised of a small collection of completely unedited and unfiltered photos that never quite made it into the blog. It's important for me to share the "behind the scenes" candids from time to time because it's just another side of the process and it also sheds a light on how much fun we have shooting!

Loves,

what's in my bag?

Hi everyone!

I have been getting lots of requests for a "what's in your bag" post lately so I narrowed it down to the key items I almost always have with me for touch-ups on the go and wonderful remedies for dry Winter skin! I'll admit that I'm "one of those people" that loves anything travel-sized so you can imagine the haul I try to cram into my bag on a daily basis. I mean, who doesn't need a tiny bottle of baby powder with them at all times? You know, for those times when you...pretend to be a gymnast and, well, I guess that's it.

Anyways, enjoy my teeny travel favorites and get your shop on by clicking the links below!

currently coveting - knit wit

Hi everyone!

One of my absolute favorite things about creating a Fall wardrobe is stocking up on cozy, oversized knits because, as we all know, nothing is ever too big or too intricate! The great thing about knits this season is that they can be paired with just about anything and are no longer regulated to your classic cable knits and argyles. Read on to shop my 6 "knit wit" picks this season that are ALL under $100!

Enjoy,
