Pleats are one of the standout fall trends.

I LOVE pleated leather! I think the leather edges up the pleats, which are inherently so feminine.

You can buy the real deal like this skirt by Alice + Olivia, or go with some faux leather pleats like this dress by Calvin Klein (around $70 with code “FRIENDS”).

Both of these options are appropriate for the office because the hemline falls a little above the knee (depending on your height).

I love this striped sweater with the built-in collar…aka built-in layering! (Anything that makes your life easier is a welcome addition to the wardrobe.)

If I could afford this YSL handbag, I would buy it!! But, alas, it is not in my budget. It’s an incredible investment piece with incredible versatility.

A black trench coat is one of those must-haves in every woman’s wardrobe. The one I picked for you (below) by Trina Turk for $238.

I think this look is great for transitioning from day-to-night. You will look just as polished at the party as you do at the office.

As always, thank YOU so much for reading my blog, and for supporting my mission and my business by shopping through my links. You guys are the best!
