Ally is back on The City Girl in Me to show us how absolutely stunning it is to wear the most minimal makeup— which is perfect for those days we have less than 5 minutes to get all dolled up. The red lip is every City Girl’s secret weapon!
This Fall is all about the sleek coat, and these options are as stylish as they are affordable. I love how easily these can add instant style to any outfit— from your everyday jeans and flats, to that little black dress. Here are three options to get you going for the colder days ahead.
A little rock n’ roll: [Faux] leather and contrast sleeves were all over Fall fashion runways. I’m a bit partial to this sophisticated take on the usual grey wool coat.
Vintage and ladylike: Go Old Hollywood or go home. This shade of brown goes with everything— black, navy, grey, red— especially red, and the fur collar hints at the glamour of the 1950s and 60s.
A timeless classic: This just screams Jackie O on Thanksgiving in Cape Cod. A coat this simple is like a blank canvas. Add a brooch, belt, or printed scarf to make it your own.
Best part? Sign up for the Dorothy Perkins newsletter and you get 15% off your first order AND all orders over $75 receive free shipping. That is what I call a deal.
September. There are so many reasons why I love this month. This September I feel especially blessed. I got to move back to New York City with the love of my life, network with amazing bloggers at the IFB Conference and Lucky FABB Conference, attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, see an early screening of The Eye Has to Travel — a documentary about Vogue magazine editor Diana Vreeland, and soak up all of the inspiration around me.
