Let me say this louder for the people in the back. Shop your own damn closet! Especially during these uncertain times, when I think everybody is doing a little bit of belt tightening, it is so important to find new and innovative ways to wear pieces you already own. I have recently found a lot of joy in doing this. Sort of in an outfit mixologist kind of way. A little bit of this, splash of color, dash of denim, hint of neutrals and I’ve masterfully concocted something exciting to wear for the day.
One of the biggest sources of inspiration for me these days? Googling celebrity street style. There are bazillions of paparazzi photos out there of celebrities wearing casual yet chic outfits while out to lunch, getting a coffee, heading to a meeting…you know stuff us normal folks also do on a daily basis. And the best part is that I bet my bottom dollar that if you put your thinking cap on and ponder hard enough, you can recreate some of your favorite looks from the items hanging in your closet right now. No purchase necessary.
That’s exactly what I did with the above two looks. When the news broke of Gigi’s pregnancy, and my Google history already flooded with pinned street style inspo, I decided to type in her name and see what I could conjure up. These two looks are quintessentially Gigi. Effortlessly chic and down to earth, just as I’ve read she is in real life. After a few quick swipes in my wardrobe, I found pieces that were almost identical. I even pulled the pieces and some similar options for you to see exactly what I used to come up with these replicas.
Look 1: Green with envy
Look 2: Band Tees Rock
As I’m vulnerably posting my recreations, I couldn’t help but wonder…are there any celebrity looks you’d like to remake with your own closet staples? If so, I challenge you to take the plunge, snap a photo and tag me using #SincerelyStyling. I can’t wait to see what you mix up!
For the past three years, female empowerment and advocacy
for equality has become a highly publicized societal evolution. This has been a
fight for centuries, but it’s no secret that in these last few years, women’s
voices are louder and more forceful than ever. Although it may seem trivial,
when you’re fighting the good fight, you also have to look the part. I feel the
same way for when you are wanting to be taken seriously in the workplace. As
modern, professional women, we are constantly fighting to deserve a seat at the
conference table, not to take notes, but to lead passionate discussions and
make big decisions. In order to be taken seriously and in order to present
yourself as a professional, you need to dress the part.
In my personal opinion, every modern, professional woman
needs to own a suit. If you work at any sort of establishment, you need to own
a suit. If you want to be taken seriously at work when big business meetings
are taking place, you need to own a suit. Period, end of discussion. The
evolution and right to “power dress” go hand in hand with the work that the
women before us have done in order for us to have that right. Remember, not that
long ago, women weren’t even allowed to wear pants. Women’s suits are the amalgam
of a women’s determination, her willingness to show up and the stereotypical
masculinity. Suits makes me feel confident, intelligent, powerful and
Interviews are the perfect time to wear a classic suit. I
also think it’ super important to always have a good suit in hand if you have an
important business meeting coming up. Quarterly business reviews or annual
planning presentations are a few prime examples of these. Always read the room.
If your client is younger and more laid back, perhaps wear a suit in a
different color or with a cropped pant, but if you’re meeting with someone who
tends to fall more on the traditional side, I’d stick to the classic tailored
suit in a neutral color like navy or dark charcoal.
The power suit trend has been with us for so long, nothing in
fashion is ever really new but rather born again. This time around, the suit is
gaining traction in regard to oversized blazers and bold shoulders. That’s
right ladies, the shoulder pad is making a comeback, but I encourage you to
embrace it. With the suit standing in the spotlight recently, I thought it’d be
fun to share some easy and fun ways to wear a suit this season. Whether it’s
for work, holiday parties or events, suits can be professional and trendy.
1. Wear a fun color. I found this amazing Robert Rodriguez suit (above) on Rent the Runway and knew that I had to wear it. The powdery blue was just the perfect feminine touch I needed to take this oversized, should pad adorned blazer from menswear-inspired to totally chic. Find a soft, yet eclectic color for a dreamy monochromatic look.
2. Find a classic plaid. Don’t go crazy, but the way I would wear a head to toe plaid ensemble to work and to happy hour would be to stick with a muted print in a neutral color. The gray plaid is the epitome of this kind of look. A classic gray checked suit can be worn from day to night especially if paired with a pop of color shoe.
3. Inspired by the men. I’m talking oversized blazers. The bigger the better as long as they are tailored properly. Everything should not be skintight, that just isn’t in anymore. Hailey Bieber pulls off this look flawlessly. Go for a more fitted pant and an oversized blazer for that effortlessly cool vibe. Make it look like you just grabbed it out of your boyfriend’s closet.
4. Turtleneck undershirts. I am a sucker for a good turtleneck. If I could have only one piece of clothing in my closet for the rest of my life, it would be a classic black turtleneck. Layer your suits over a traditional neutral turtleneck for the perfect wintery aesthetic.
5. Mix and match. Under the right circumstances, funk up your suit look by mixing and matching the blazer and trouser with contrasting patterns, colors or fabrics. Wear a plaid with a cheetah print, a green with a red or a sequin with a cotton. If you have multiple matching suits in your closet, experiment one day by taking one jacket and pairing it with a different pant. It will totally elevate the whole look.
As long as your look is tasteful, professional and puts you
in a confident mindset, it really doesn’t matter how you style different suits.
There is no tried and true guidebook, but these are a few ways that I like to
rock a suit for work. I hope after reading this, it inspires you to try
something a little out of the ordinary. If you are looking for a sign, well
honey this is it.
This is one of my favorite topics of all time!! When I was a Freshmen in college at Indiana University, I took a fashion merchandising class. I was fully prepared to take my passion for fashion to the next level and pursue a degree in it. This class supported that assumption. For an entire week, I remember studying the concept of conspicuous consumption. I became utterly fascinated with the notion of consumer behavior and why we choose to make certain purchase decisions solely on perceived socioeconomic status. It was enough to get me hooked. This one week this one subject was enough to where if I hadn’t transferred to Ball State my Sophomore year, I would have immersed myself in the fashion merchandising degree. I’m still thinking of getting my Master’s Degree in Consumer Behavior, that’s how much I love this stuff!
If you are unaware of the phrase, conspicuous consumption is
the consumption of luxuries on a lavish scale in an attempt to enhance one’s
prestige. In layman’s terms, it means that you pursue buying things that are at
a higher price point because you want people to think you have money. The term was
first used by economist and sociologist Thorstein Veblen in the 19th
century as a way of describing families who showed off their great wealth
publicly to manifest their social power whether it was real or living beyond
So why is it important? Well, our society is inherently obsessed with social class. The items we buy on a daily basis puts us into buckets in other people’s eyes. If someone is waking around with a Dunkin Donuts cup of coffee, carries an Android phone and wears a label-less purse from Target, our society would put that person in the bucket of people who fall lower on the socioeconomic scale. If they saw another person walking around with a Starbucks cup, carrying their Apple products and toting a Louis Vuitton Neverfull, then that person has money.
We are all guilty of conspicuous consumption. To be completely honest, when I bought my Louis bag back in February, I had to take a step back and ask why. Why this bag, why this price point, is that reasonable? The answer was I wanted to be able to buy something that showed for how hard I had been working but the answer was also no, spending that much money on a handbag probably wasn’t reasonable. Just with the faint monogrammed LV plastered all over the canvas though, I could let passerby’s know that I worked hard enough to afford a bag of that stature. Same goes for the people who jumped at the opportunity to buy the new iPhone 11 as soon as it debuted. Did they really need that new phone? Likely no, but being at the forefront of those snagging the new luxury good allowed those consumers to “show off” their status as trend-starters and as someone who has the means to drop that kind of cash in a New York minute.
Makes sense? Sure, but I’m sure you’re asking well why should I even care, is it good or are these people just pretentious a-holes? Actually, conspicuous consumption is kind of a good thing because it stimulates economic growth. Since people are spending money on more luxurious goods, they are putting money back into the economy and thus back into businesses. The demand increases and the businesses need to hire more people. More people have jobs and ultimately have more money to spend back to the economy. It’s a cyclical infinity symbol of money both coming and going and that’s always a good thing for our economy.
My tip though is to always spend within your means. If you have the discretionary income that you’ve been saving to purchase a luxury good you’ve always wanted, that’s one thing. That’s exactly what I did. Beware though of the fad fashion items. The items that are all the rage and that everyone seems to be buying all at one time. They come into popularity just as fast as they fade into oblivion, becoming irrelevant and a waste of your hard-earned money. These are great items to buy on a dime. If you are purchasing a luxury item, go for something classic and timeless, something that will always be in style no matter what the year may be. That’s money well spent.
Color blocking, in fashion and design, is the art and use of contrasting blocks or panels of solid, typically bright colors. I fancy utilizing some of my favorite color combinations using the color blocking method through my outfits. One of my all-time favorite color combinations is red and pink, think Mandy Moore in Brandon Maxwell at the latest Emmys. I think this color combination has the perception of being chic and sophisticated if done with the correct hues. Some sure-fire ways to execute an effortlessly cool color blocking look:
1) Use complimentary colors. If you Google color wheel, you can easily see which colors fall next to each other on the circle. Colors that are across from one another are complimentary colors, so purple and yellow, blue and orange and red and green are all complimentary colors. Any of these color combinations would look excellent in a color block look.
2) Monochromatic color blocking looks are always a hit. Choose one color on the color wheel and find multiple shades of that one color to achieve depth in your look when wearing it from head to toe. Mix fuchsia with pale pinks, for example, to achieve a monochromatic affect.
3) Wear a head to toe neutral look but incorporate a pop of color to add dimension to your color blocking outfit. Pair a great navy-blue power suit with a bright red under shirt to really mix it up.
Now I’m not a color connoisseur. I tend to dabble more in the neutral realm. With this is mind, I thought what better way to kick off the first of October, the considerably spooky month, with my take on a black and orange color blocking situation. I bring to you my Camel and Noir workwear look from today.

One of my favorite things to do after a Fashion Week or at
the beginning of a new season is to take some time and write down what I think
the biggest trends are going to be. I’m talking what are people going to be
walking down the street wearing and what are our stores’ racks going to be
lined with. If you didn’t know, when Fashion Week happens, it’s always
showcasing collections not for the upcoming season but for the season after
that. This past Fashion Week in September showcased all new Spring and Summer
2020 collections. That’s how far in advance the fashion world has to plan for
getting pieces from the runway to producing for consumption.
With this in mind, Fall and Winter 2019 Fashion Week
happened back in February of this year. That was the first glimpse the fashion
industry got of what’s to come for Fall this year. I studied those runways like
I was taking the SATs and have compiled some of my predictions for what I think
we’ll be seeing a lot of this upcoming season. Hint: I’m wearing one of my predictions
I have been seeing so so so much zebra prints lately! I
think this is going to replace the uber popular snakeskin that took over this
past Summer. Ann Taylor recently came out with a capsule collection that
highlighted zebra print in many different styles. Influencers and celebrities
have been seen prancing around Fashion Week, some in head-to-toe zebra looks. I
have a feeling this will be the new go to print this upcoming season. Remember
when we were 13 and everything we owned from blankets to pillows to rugs to
school notebooks were all zebra print? Funny how cyclical the design space is!
2. Puffy Sleeves
This silhouette was very prominent in February’s Fashion
Week. Fashion designers like Marc Jacobs and Ulla Johnson made them staple
pieces in their collections. They add the perfect feminine touch with a hint of
flare. If you are interested in trying this trend out, I recommend making the
puffy sleeve the center of your outfit. Try pairing an over-the-top sleeve with
a pencil skirt or simple pair of jeans. These statement pieces aren’t going
3. Shiny fabrics like leather
I personally saw a lot of shiny fabrics walking down the
runway. Silk and leather were among the most evident. Leather played a leading
role in Alexander McQueen’s show, showcasing full leather dresses. If you don’t
feel comfortable taking that big of a risk, you can remain on trend by wearing
a faux leather pant with a simple blouse or wear a leather shirt in a
minimalistic silhouette paired with your favorite jeans. This season leather
goes beyond just a jacket.
4. Fall 2019 Colors: Cheddar Yellow, Pistachio Green, Grayish Blue, Cream and Lavender
Tons of variations of these colors walked down the Fall 2019
runways. I wouldn’t consider these colors all “jewel” tones, but they have more
of a softness to them this season. I almost envision this as taking your
typical Fall color palette and putting the Fade filter on them to make the
palette more muted. Since the colors don’t make as much of a statement as in
year’s past, I think the best way to wear them this season would be with loud
statement pieces. Compare and contrast with accessories to knock a look out of
the park. Also, don’t be afraid of monochromatic looks meaning top down all the
same color or different levels of intensity of the same color. This is
5. Plaid and Preppy
Just looking at those two words together makes me think of
Gossip Girl. But in all serious, that is exactly what will be returning this
Fall. Clueless inspired matching plaid sets and absurdly good plaid outerwear.
Many designers, like Burberry of course, showed off their plaid best. Ginghams,
Madras and Houndstooth of all varieties will be all the rage. My
recommendation…go for it here! The more the merrier. Wear head-to-toe plaid,
even incorporate the same plaid print in your hair accessories. You’ll totally
be the cool kid.

Dear Dreamer and Pop Culture Admirer,
What is your dream job? When I think of my dream job, a specific person comes to mind. That usually happens right? You often have said dream job because you’ve idolized someone currently holding that role and wishing for that to be your reality. My person is Giuliana Rancic.
Full-time entrepreneur and the OG E News correspondent. I have admired her for as long as I can remember. I used to stay up way past my bedtime every night to watch the E News second airing before hitting the hay. I love that her every day is encapsulated with fashion, pop culture and celebrity news, all topics that I am truly passionate about. She works for one of the most prestigious networks, which has provided and allowed her to create a platform that she gets to utilize daily to speak to the masses. How cool is that.
As someone who’s always loved those things, loves the world of publicity and isn’t afraid of public speaking, I’ve dreamt of one day being able to stand next to her and work my tail off. I tell people today, “someday, I will be the next Giuliana Rancic.” That’s how much I love her.
What made me think of this topic was that the Emmy’s were on TV last night. I sat on my couch and watched celebrities arrive on the purple carpet via the E News coverage and was glued to Giuliana interviewing some of my favorites. The preparation, the glam and research it took her to stand there and talk to these stars even for such a short amount of time amazes me.
So, in light of the inspiration I felt last night watching my idol yet again kill it on an award show carpet, I thought I’d take a stab at reporting out on some of my favorite looks of the night. All listed below! I’m curious to know, did you watch the Emmy’s last night and if so, who were some of your favorite looks?

Henson in Vera Wang // Zendaya in Vera Wang
Some of my other favorite moments from the Emmy’s include: Alex Borstein sharing a family story and encouraging women to step out of line, Michelle Williams talking about equal pay, the compilation montage of series that departed this year (I was in tears), RuPaul’s Drag Race winning an Emmy and Bob Newhart sharp as ever at 90 years old in a bit with Ben Stiller when handing out the first award of the night. These moments and more can be seen at eonline.com (my fave site ever!).
Anyone else feel like a total boss when they throw on a
blazer? Working at any job in any capacity, I truly think that blazers are the quintessential
staple piece that every modern woman needs to have in her closet. A blazer is
the perfect article of clothing that can transition from day to night, from the
office to happy hour!
How to style a blazer: This season I am very into head to toe print looks. Pair a plaid blazer with a shift dress downing the same pattern. Blazers are super trendy to wear with turtlenecks in the cooler temperatures. I also think a blazer looks so sexy draped over your shoulders with a lace camisole or bodysuit underneath. Regardless of how you wish to wear a blazer, the best part is that there are so many different styles, shapes, silhouettes and patterns to choose from. I literally just counted, and I currently have 10 different blazers hanging in my closet. I just can’t get enough. The whole menswear as womenswear is totally my jam, and blazers are best in show when achieving this look.
If you want to obtain a good one that lasts you many wears, I suggest taking the time you need to invest in a good piece. Some of my favorite stores to get quality blazers from include H&M, Zara, Ann Taylor, J. Crew…the list goes on and on. I know that you may not be looking to drop hundreds on a blazer quite yet, so I’ve rounded up 10 chic and stylish blazers from all over the internet that you can purchase for under $50.
Linking all of the above blazers below, starting from the top left going across and then down. If you haven’t yet, check out my latest Instagram post and let me know what you think!
I am not much of a mall person. Slowly, in the technologically advanced world we live in, I am becoming more and more of a shop online kind of gal. Recently though, on our way to a dinner date, my friend and I briefly stopped at the mall to check out this new store that had just opened up. All about the new and shiny thing. The store is called Dry Goods. Just hearing the name, I envisioned a rustic Homegoods type of vibe, which is why I had no idea why my friend was dragging me there, i.e. not my vibe at all. To my surprise, I walked into what I like to call the Francesca’s, Gap, Madewell married in heaven store. The styles can tend to fall a little on the boutiquey side BUT they have really great classic pieces that you can elevate in your everyday style. Those are the pieces I gravitated toward and actually purchased.
In all transparency, I thought this place was reasonably priced. I bought 7 items and spent around $200. This was my one good Fall fashion haul for the season, or at least that’s what I keep trying to convince myself of. What really sold me was the quality of the pieces. Everything feels like it’s going to last me years, which I love and justifies the money spent in my personal opinion. Why spend $10 on something that will fall apart after a couple of wears when you can spend $40 on something that will last multiple seasons? For all intents and purposes, Dry Goods is like a boutique. All clothes are not “Dry Goods” labeled on the tags, each piece comes from other companies, but they manage to select pieces to showcase in their stores that are cohesive and on brand. I also love that they carry Love Your Melon hats. If you don’t know the mission and value of Love Your Melon, check it out here.
If you follow me on Instagram (@_sydthompson), you may have seen the video I just posted. I have never really been a fan of the typical blogger “try on hauls” so I tried to take the same concept and switch it up a tad. I have either linked the exact item from the video below, or if items were sold out, I liked similar ones from the Dry Goods site or something I found on a different retailer’s site that is super similar and around the same price point I paid. Fall fashion is quickly approaching and I am super excited to have discovered this new brand to make shopping for the new season that much easier!
Blue and White Stripped Blouse // I was nervous about this one because I thought it was going to be extremely see through, but to my surprise, it surpassed my expectations. I just wore a nude bra underneath and you couldn’t see a thing. I think this runs a little big so I would size down for a tighter fit. I purchased mine in a Small.
Marigold Print Blouse // Even though I’m not a huge floral print fan, I liked this piece because I don’t have much yellow in my closet and I thought this would be a great Thanksgiving Day shirt. I love the lightweight material and think this fits true to size. I got the Small.
Emerald Green Peplum Blouse // I love peplum shapes and I think this color is about to have a major moment this Fall season. The button detail makes it super feminine and it feels so super soft. The arms run a little tight, so I would probably size up. I got this in a Small.
Chambray Shift Dress // I loved this piece because I think it’s a classic that you can style so many different ways and layer so many things on top to make a completely different look each time. It runs a little big, I got the Small but could have easily fit into the XS. I couldn’t find anything similar to this on the site right now, so I linked a VERY similar option from Macy’s.
Gray Sweater Dress // Winter is calling my name in this dress. It is so cozy and heavy, which will be great paired with over the knee boots in the bitter cold months. I do think this dress runs a tad on the smaller side so if you are between sizes I would size up here. I am wearing a Small but would be more comfortable in a Medium I think.
Camel Turtleneck // Hands down my FAVORITE piece out of my whole purchase. I think I’ve already worn it a hundred times since I bought it. It is slightly cropped, which makes it perfect for a French Tuck in the front. The color goes with everything and the sweater is soft yet on the lighter side, which is why I’ve been able to wear it now! I am wearing a Small, it fits true to size.
Often times, when either flowers start to bloom or the
leaves start to change colors, people think that it’s time for a whole new
wardrobe. Well, I think those people are crazy. The fun part about fashion is
finding new and innovative ways to wear things we already own. To take an
article of clothing and completely transform its makeup. Hey, you also help the
planet that way as well.
Right now, at this time, we are about 13 days away from the first official day of Fall. All that being said, don’t go Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Halloween Town on me yet…because there are some fun ways you can transform the pieces already in your closet into chic, cooler-weather masterpieces. Save money, save the planet and save your sanity. Your lightweight, flowy Summer staples aren’t going into hibernation just yet. Here are 5 simple ways to transition your Summer clothes to Fall:
1. Pair a strappy dress with an undershirt.
This is totally a 90s vibe and I am here for it. I feel like for the past couple Summers, slip dresses have been all the rage. I indeed have a few in my own closet that I’m proud of. The last thing I want to do is put them away just because of a change in season, so my style hack is to pair these Summer numbers with an undershirt. Like literally, I got one from the boy’s section at Target for like $10 in a size Medium. Wear it underneath your slip, strappy dress to cover your shoulders and keep you warm in the Fall months.
2. Mix and match season pieces.
One of the best ways to slowly transition from piping hot temps to cooler ones is to mix and match pieces from each season. Throw a sweater over your favorite Summer dress or wear a turtleneck with a pair of shorts, like I am doing in the above images. Mixing and matching also helps you feel like you get to hold onto the best parts of each season for a little bit longer.
3. OTK Boots.
This hack is a super easy one. The toughest part for me about transitioning into a new season is deciding what kind of shoes to wear. Is it hot enough to wear sandals or are my toes going to freeze while walking to work? OTK (or “over the knee”) boots are perfect for a season transition because they can literally be worn with every kind of bottom. Skirts, shorts, pants, leggings, even dresses, over the knee boots feel Fall while still having the ability to wear some of your lighter, perhaps even shorter in length, Summer styles. Bonus, these boots are super chic and make your legs look 10 feet tall.
4. Layer, layer, layer.
I cannot stress enough that as you transition your wardrobe to Fall and start to dust off pieces you put into storage months ago, the first items that should start to slowly come out are your lightweight Fall jackets. Trenches are great, cardigans are great, leather jackets are great. These styles are simple enough to go with many things currently in your closet and the best part about them is that when those random last Summer days creep in before Fall really hits, you can easily remove them from your outfit to adjust to the unpredictable temperatures. Now is the weird time in the Midwest where it’s freezing in the morning but scorching in the afternoon. Wear a lightweight Fall jacket with your everyday outfit, and when it gets hot, simply remove that outer layer. Style hack: I even like undoing my Summer wrap dresses to wear as open, breezy dusters!
5. Tights for days.
I can promise you tights are not for older women. I actually think wearing tights is super chic. This is also the easiest way to keep wearing your dresses, shorts and skirts for even longer, even way into the thick of Fall. Get a pair of opaque or black tights to pair under all of your current Summer bottoms. If you don’t already have a pair of tights, you can run to Walgreens or Target and get them for under $10. Not only will it elevate your everyday look, but tights also keep your legs nice and toasty, which is what you want when the crisp Fall air starts to swoop in.
If you are someone who wants to buy all new clothes for the
new season, kudos to you. I admittedly have already bought some new Fall
pieces, but I always like to think, work and shop smarter not harder. If I can
save a dime, I’m all about it. If you found ways to transform your Summer
clothes for the Fall months, I’d love to know below! As always, I hope this
To be completely transparent (because that’s what we like around here), my mom is the one who actually pushed publish on this post due to the fact that I am currently in Michigan City wine tasting for a work outing. My whole team is together and likely around this time, we are eating lunch and at our first winery of the day. But that doesn’t stop business as usual, the show must go on. I hope you all had a fabulous short week, I know I did. Got lots done in the three whole days I was in the office, so that’s something to celebrate. Just think, a few more hours and you are in weekend mode again. I’m raising a glass to you right now! Some of the best things I found on the internet this week are below, enjoy!
