camo fall trendCamo has become one of the hottest prints of 2014, with the Summer trend easily extending into the Fall {and I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon}.

For those of us in the South who have long had camo pieces in our wardrobes, it’s a welcomed trend and I’ve loved integrating a few key “fancy” camo pieces into my collection. If you’re going to do it, do it right. Here are my tips for camo done right.

  1. If you’re going to do it, don’t overdo it. Let your camo piece be the statement of your outfit and go simple and neutral for your other pieces. Think black jeans + white tee.
  2. Know when to wear your “fancy” camo. These stylish pieces are not acceptable wear for a dove hunt, go with the original, “real” camo pieces when in these situations. Please.
  3. Look for pieces with strong, simple construction or classic pieces. This will give you the most effortless camo look without making it look like you tried too hard.
  4. Add a little juxtaposition to really own this trend. I love how “rugged” camo is, so pair it with a nude heel or better yet a camo shift dress. You can have so much fun.
  5. Still not sure if you can rock it? The best single piece {in my humble opinion} to ease into the trend is a clean piece of outerwear. A jacket or vest, and consider going again with a classic piece like a trench or anorak.

Here are my go-to picks for camo this Fall. I’d love to know which you’re loving and what other pieces you can’t live without!


Sometimes traditions are overlooked.  One that I’m reminded of this time of year is the sport of hunting. The photo I’m sharing today is that of my Great Grandfather(Pepe)and Great Great Grandfather on a duck hunt.

Now, baring comments from PETA and false assumptions that I myself enjoy sitting in a deerstand at 4AM – I must say that there is something to be said about the tradition of hunting.

Gathering with family, dressed in the garb, being outdoors, preparing & anticipating “the hunt” for days. I love the tradition of it year after year and the sharing of the rituals.

And most of all, I love that the hunt look is back & fashionable for the Fall – a wonderful nod to the classic traditional layers of houndstooth & plaid, wool scarves, and knee-leather boots. Aah, the hunt.
