That Was Way Harsh

10 points if you get the movie reference!  Although today I mean it in reference to the lighting in these pics, not Cher's ability to drive.

This dress has been in my closet for about two years now.  Here is how I styled it back in 2015.  2015 Kinsey styled this with knee high boots with a nice heel.  2017 Kinsey styled this dress with loafers that my husband affectionately calls the most hideous shoe he has ever seen me wear. What can I say?  He keeps me humble.  

So maybe these leather Coach loafers are the ugliest shoe Scot has ever seen, but me?  I like them!  They are the most comfortable shoe I own, more so than my sneakers!  As I slowly start creeping away from wearing heels all the time, finding flat shoes that I like is essential.  Sorry babe!

The Mom Connection

When I was a kid I remember going with my mom to sample sales and watching her comb through the racks of clothing.  My mom has always been a little fashionista, and it's such a good memory for me! This would have been the early 90s, and so everything she brought home typically featured bold colors and beautiful prints.  One dress that sticks out in my mind is this green and yellow dress with a similar cut to this one.  I think about that dress a lot for some reason! This dress reminds me of something my mom would have picked out for herself in the 90s, so wearing it makes me feel connected to her. 

See how I've styled this dress before here and here!

17 Looks for Fall 2017


In case you haven't been hit over the head with this fact quite yet it is officially fall y'all!  Being the basic B I am, I couldn't be happier.  This means scarves, boots and copious amounts of Oktoberfest brew passed around my household.   It also means everyone's favorite style season.   I have collected my 17 favorite fall looks to share with you today.  My hair color seems to change faster than the falling leaves in this walk down memory lane!  

Which look is your favorite?

Annual Style Rut

Every year around this time I begin to slowly slip back into my rut of wearing black and white with pops of red.  I know I do it.  I hate that I do it.  Yet I still do it every.single.YEAR! Last year I thought I had come to peace with it, but now I feel differently. I may need to ban myself from buying black and white cold weather clothing, because I have to find more ways to inject some color during the fall and winter.  

Help!  How do you break out of your style ruts?!

Fall Pattern Mixing | Buffalo Plaid & Houndstooth

Like a moth to a flame, so goes every fashion blogger to buffalo plaid come fall.  And why not?  Buffalo plaid is one of those timeless and gorgeous prints that screams Autumn!  I have buffalo plaid tops, shoes, coats and of course this poncho!  Who doesn't love a good check print?

This time I decided to cinch in the waist of this bad boy with a houndstooth scarf that has been hiding in the depth of my scarf drawer for a while.  I love it so much, and had forgotten I owned it until I did a closet purge recently and went through all of the contents of my dresser. I love the look of these two prints together!

See how I styled this poncho last fall here!

In Kinsey's Closet Obsession | Leopard Print Lust


If you have been following along on my IKC journey (how "Bachelor" franchise did that just sound?) will know one thing: I love a good leopard print!  Now leopard print is really hit or miss in my book.  There is a fine line between chic and gawdy, and I am sure I have overstepped my bounds a time or two over the years.  Here are some of my favorite leopard items that have been featured on IKC!
