Happy Labor Day everyone! Hope you are enjoying your long weekend. I am looking forward to more Fall pieces and am perusing all of the awesome deals out there right now. Every single one of these pieces is on a major discount so get it while it's hot!! I am on a bit of a black, white, and gold kick as you might have noticed. I just love the classic color scheme and darkness leading into fall. Pair these pieces with a pretty pink or bright red lip for max impact. 

My favorite sales are at JCrew where you can get 30% off online + 40% off final sale + free shipping, LOFT where you can get up to 50% off, Saks off 5th has an additional 40% off, ASOS is hosting an additional 10% off sale items and up to 75% off, and Nordstrom has a ton of adorable pieces on sale currently. 

Hope you have a great day!

Yesterday, I teamed up with West Coast Capri on a Summer to Fall transition look, I hope you enjoyed her adorable overalls and chic Celine bag as much as I did. I thought I would share what I featured on her site with you today! 


Pastels are going to be sticking around for Fall and Winter again, pretty neat if you ask me. Also, as I am sure I have mentioned before, leopard will be popping up all season long. I am ending a CRAZY week with an even crazier weekend. Good thing it is a 3 day weekend huh? 


There are lots of labor day sales going on this weekend and I will be keeping you in the loop, so keep checking back for my favorite picks.

Today, I am introducing you to the adorable Chelsey of West Coast Capri, I know you will love her style as much as I do so check her out! You can also see my guest post on her site today in our Summer to Fall transition partnership. 

Hi everyone, I'm Chelsey from the fashion and lifestyle blog West Coast Capri, and I'm so excited to be here today on King & Kind! I am getting really excited for fall to arrive because it's my favorite fashion of the year. I love adding some more layers to my wardrobe and darker, richer tones. Today I wanted to share a look that will transition from summer to fall. I am really loving the overall trend going on right now which I didn't think I would, but once I tried some on, I quickly remembered how comfortable these are! They really look so cute on everyone, and I even like the darker black ones I've seen coming out for the new season. I think it's great to have pieces that can be dressed up or down and these overalls do just that. I paired them with a button up and heels for a more feminine look, but they look great with ankle booties and a t-shirt as well. I also think that you can never go wrong with a black and white combo and we'll be seeing lots more of that this coming season. And lastly, a red lip and nail is always my favorite finishing touch. What are your favorite trends for this fall?


Thanks so much for having me Amber, and I I hope all of you will come visit me at West Coast Capri! xx

Summer is mere weeks away from being over and with the cool mornings and evenings starting up its time to really focus on the perfect fall transition pieces. I have to say, I am not a summer girl. I know, I live in the wrong city! I prefer the cooler parts of the year when I can toss on a sweater and walk around town without sweating. Just me? I picked these ten items based on upcoming trends for Fall. Leopard is popping up everywhere and I LOVE IT. Dusty rose is also piquing my interest along with some pretty gold jewelry. 





Have a great Wednesday everyone!

It's my 30th birthday today! There, I said it. As scary as I thought this day would be when I was younger, I have to say I am only excited about the decade to come. This decade means I am not a youngster anymore and I can look forward to being out of the confusing 20's fog where I was just trying to figure things out. Now I know a little more about life, work, and relationships and I couldn't be happier about turning 30.

One thing I have learned over the years is the value and pure joy of clothing that fits perfectly. We are all shaped different and despite that clothing manufacturers make clothing for a very limited (and unattainable for most of us) body type. I often take my blazers, jeans, and tops to the tailor for tweaking since I am 5'2 and curvy. 

When I discovered PIOL it was the most exciting experience. I first found my color aura based on my coloring, then picked each part of my dress- the neckline, sleeves, skirt, shape, and fabric. Next, I gave all of my measurements to ensure the perfect fit. PIOL quickly went to work on creating my dress and I received it within a few weeks. It is such a pretty dress, the pictures just do not do it the justice it deserves. Dave commented on it immediately when I tried it on. It really fits like a glove and feels so special. I highly recommend you head over to PIOL and play around {or view their Lookbook} with creating your perfect dress whether for work, play, a wedding, or gala.
