Cabi Fashion Experience

Ever since I discovered Cabi a few years ago, I have partnered with my stylist to host a Cabi Experience at my house two times a year to showcase the Spring and Fall lines. And it is always something that I so look forward to. I love getting a group of my best girls together, serving up some tasty treats and beverages, and of course the most exciting part, getting to the see the new line in the comfort of a home, with a stylist on hand to not only present the line to us, but also help us pick the right sizes and silhouettes for our bodies. It’s always a night full of fun, friendship and fashion. Three of my favorite things!

This year, I happened to have a last minute work trip come up the week of my Fashion Experience. And the way it worked out, I was only flying in about 2.5 hours before my show. I didn’t want to cancel, but was feeling overwhelmed about cutting it so close and getting from the airport to the grocery store and home before my show started. And when one of my best friends stepped in and offered to do the shopping for me, my first instinct was to say no. I didn’t want to put her out like that, and felt like I should do it myself. But when I realistically looked at my timeline, I realized I needed to let her help me. And I am SO thankful that I did. Not only did she save the day by so selflessly going out of her way and putting together a gorgeous spread of food for me and all of my guests, but her generosity perfectly embodied what Cabi is all about, and what these Fashion Experiences represent, women loving on and supporting other women. And perhaps as much I adore Cabi clothes, I adore their message even more. Because every time I’ve attended a Fashion Experience in the last few years, whether it’s been my own, or someone else’s, I’ve experienced this love and support in such a tangible way. So if you’ve never been to a Fashion Experience, or hosted one, then I would highly recommend it. Obviously for the beautiful garments and first class experience with an incredible in-home stylist, but perhaps more importantly, for the amazing sisterhood and culture that IS Cabi.

Mad About Plaid

As if the Fall Cabi line couldn’t get any cuter, now they’ve gone and launched new arrivals.  And guys, they are SO good!  When I got to have a sneak peek at what was coming in the new launch a few weeks ago, this plaid jacket was the first thing I knew I needed to have in my wardrobe.  And it’s even cuter in person.  Plus it’s such an easy piece to style now AND take into cooler temps (and the holiday season!).  Today I paired it with my favorite band tee and OTK boots, but it would also look amazing with a dress, or over a cozy sweater with Sorels when the snow starts flying.

Sugar Plum

Plum is always a color I’m drawn to during the Fall months.  And one of my favorite ways to wear it, is mixed with shades of pink.  And I’m talking all shades of pink-from blush to hot pink.  Plus, plum always looks great with a bold berry stained lip, which is perfectly on trend (and fun!) for the upcoming season.
