I think it’s safe to say there has been no shortage of feeling things in 2020. Mostly in the form of emotions but also in the sense of fashion. We’ve felt our fair share of cozy knits, plush sherpas and well, we may have forgotten what things like buttons and zippers feel like. I don’t know about you, but my desire to step up my fashion game keeps climbing a little bit higher with every month that passes, especially now that fall is here. If there’s one thing we can always count on from our good friend fall [other than delicious warm drinks, the prettiest leaves scattered all over the ground, and a plethora of chip dip on game day Sundays], it’s the clothes. And we’re not talking about any ole clothes, we’re talking about the good stuff. The textures, the colors, the prints, and oh – the layering abilities, don’t even get me started on the layering abilities.
When it comes to new arrivals for fall, I’ve been finding myself gravitate towards the one and only Ann Taylor. I don’t know if you’ve shopped at Ann Taylor recently [take a glance at their new arrivals] but my oh my, does she have some c-u-t-e items! The thing I love the most about Ann Taylor?! The quality. With every item that I put on, I am blown away by the fabrics, the fit, and the wearability wash after wash. There are so many easy-to-wear items that will have others turning heads [even if it’s through a computer screen] that will make you feel like a million bucks. Let’s dive into these million-dollar looks, shall we?
Well hello to you too, fancy lacy sleeve top. Meow. I love a good texture moment and these sleeves are spot-on [pun intended]. Here’s the good news though – just because your sleeves have more style than you’ve worn all year, the body of the top is the stretchiest knit that might make you forget that you’re not still laying in bed in yesterday’s sweatshirt. Add some stretchy black jeans and the only thing left to worry about is which cocktail you’re going to order [one Moscow Mule, coming right up].

Out & About
You want to talk about all of the fall feels, this sweater is the epitome of it all. It looks like you were talented enough to find two items in your closet that layer perfectly, but tricks on them, it’s all one. I love a good trick [and treat] moment. Super cozy, this ribbed sweater will have you feeling an extra dose of snuggly while the silky bottom will encourage you to swap out your regular joggers and do something crazy – wear jeans.

There is no shortage of polished work styles at Ann Taylor that will make your fellow co-workers envious of your put togetherness on your next Zoom call. Per 2020, I like to implement the business on top, party on the bottom mentality when it comes to workwear. If there’s a print or pattern that hasn’t stopped making a statement since it first came to town, it’s plaid. Insert this blazer. A classic silhouette with trim details that will start to convince you that you’re actually Royalty from England [yes, clothes can have that type of power of you, or at least me 😉].

When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
