No Sweat Sweats: Business Casual

It's time for the third and final installation in my 'No Sweat Sweats' series --

Because sweatpants and sweatshirts are pretty much everywhere right now, I wanted to show any of you out there who might be too apprehensive to try out this trend that you really can wear sweats and leave your house. Yes, they really are stylish ... I swear. It's all in how you style them.

Up next: Business Casual.
This is the most fun interpretation of this trend if you ask me ... it's equal parts business and recreation. The tuxedo striped sweatpants look impossibly chic when paired with a button down and a blazer.

Butt Crazy IN LOVE with Buffalo Plaid

This season, I've realized that I am -- to quote Cher Horowitz -- hopelessly, butt crazy IN LOVE with buffalo plaid.  After daydreaming about it on Monday, I figured I'd go all out and show y'all some really great buffalo plaid pieces for fall.

Behold:

RECAP: Eva Mendes for New York and Company Fall 2014 Collection Unveiling

Last night, I went to New York & Company's flagship NYC location in Manhattan to check out the latest collection from Eva Mendes ... and I was treated to a really cool impromptu fashion show full of beautiful, real women of all shapes and sizes.

Don't forget that you can shop the entire collection here ... this might just be her best line yet, so I wouldn't dilly-dally.
