Oh, the vest… a favorite staple of mine for fall (and winter, and spring). My husband actually picked this vest out and bought it for me. I was very impressed with his shopping skills. The other side is faux fur making it cute in the winter time, thrown over a sweater (seen here). I decided to give it a warmer weather spin, pairing it with summery pumps and a casual striped tee. I’m sharing some of my other favorite vests below. They’re the perfect thing to wear with the weather changing! xo
It’s finally cooling off a bit in NYC and starting to feel like fall. I scooped up this H&M knit recently, which is perfect for the changing seasons. Its lightweight and ideal to wear on a cooler evening. I love that time of year when it’s starting to get cooler, but is still warm enough in the evening to go out with bare legs or arms. Lace and knits are one of my favorite combos, and I’m trying to squeeze in another wear out of these shorts before they go away for the season.
It’s been a busy week and I’m ready for the weekend! Have a great one everybody. xo
Fall is on the horizon and it’s time to start getting our closets ready, even if the weather has been feeling more like mid-summer. If you live in NYC you know the seasons change overnight, and it’s best to have your closet set with some favorite seasonal pieces. This fall I’m loving simple neutrals, fun booties, and more structured looks. I was so happy when Marshall’s sent over this Helmut Lang top. Not only is it an amazing Marshall’s find (and great quality), but it matches my personal style perfectly. It fits right into my closet with all the neutrals I’ve been pulling out lately. I love taking a more polished item (like this top) and mixing it with something super casual (like ripped denim). Fall is my favorite season both for the weather, the clothing, and fun fall activities (apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes). Do you guys shop at Marshall’s? Any great fall finds there recently? If so, share in the comments! xo
Every year summer flies by so quickly. It feels like the weeks between Memorial Day and Labor Day are gone before they even begin. This summer was filled with so many memories and wonderful, life changing, events. I feel lucky to have experienced such a wonderful season and (almost) ready to start fall. I’m celebrating the unofficial end of summer on the blog with these neon shorts. They were one of the funnest pieces I bought this season, and just scream summer. I wore them a ton in more casual looks like this one, and also dressed them up a few times. And they’re on a super sale right now at J.Crew!
All these “fall transition” posts on different blogs are making me a little depressed. I may love the weather in the fall, but I am definitely sad to see summer go. I figure it’s better to jump on the ban-wagon then to resist change. So in that spirit, how perfect is this jumpsuit as a transitional piece? I wore it on a cooler night out with sandals and a linen blazer, but I also think it would be perfect with booties and a light-weight scarf. What are your favorite things to wear in early fall? Have a great long weekend! xo
