Whatever the weather (umm hello, 90 degrees), my mind is on Fall fashion! Runway looks usually feel so unattainable to me, like works of art that I love looking at but could never recreate. So I wanted to try a new series where I take inspirationfrom the runway and make it accessible for real life (because lets face it, we aren’t all models or street-style stars)… This 3.1 Phillip Lim look from Fall 2013 isn’t too over the top so it’s a great place to start. For the work look, I balanced the bold pant with a classic white blouse and a dark knit. On the weekend, I swapped the blouse for a chambray and added ankle booties to keep it effortlessly chic. What do you think? Can you see yourself rocking a bold pant and layers for work or weekend?
Got this great one-shoulder dress at Marshall’s a few years ago, and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it. In the Fall, I will top it off with an oversized sweater or my denim jacket and booties. But for now, sexy sandals and a statement necklace are the perfect accents for a night out with my manfriend.
Wearing – Dress via Marshalls, vintage belt, Steve Madden shoes (last seen here), Michael Kors necklace, BaubleBar ring, Alex+Ani and vintage bracelet
You know those easy, breezy trousers you reach for during the hot Summer months? Well you can take them from Summer to Fall with the right styling. For Summer, keep them light with a silky blouse and simple accessories. As Fall approaches, ditch the blouse in favor of a lightweight knit and a statement necklace. Add a red lip and rich cognac sandals to warm it up for the changing season.
Wear Now: Joseph pants, Balmain tank, Prada sandals, Kate Spade bangles, Topshop belt, Essie nail polish
Wear Later: Joseph pants, Helmut Lang sweater, Michael Kors sandals, Lulu Frost necklace, Saint Laurent clutch, Giorgio Armani lipstick
I never tire of Black + White (or some shade of white), and one of my favorite ways to accessorize this color palette is with rich cognac accents, like this belt. Leopard wedges pull it all together for a polished, but laid-back late Summertime look.
Wearing – NIC+ZOE top, Zara skirt (old), Steve Madden wedges, Kate Spade bag, Michael Kors watch
A couple weeks ago, the manfriend and I went to Gloucester for the weekend. The weather was gorgeous and our spot on the water was incredible. After a casual brunch, we took these pics on the roof so we could take in the whole view!
Wearing – LBD via Urban Outfitters (old), Boston Proper denim jacket (last seen here), Madewell scarf, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Kate Spade sandals via Gilt
This look was inspired by one of my favorite movies, Dirty Dancing - specifically this scene. I love Baby’s laid-back take on preppy style in this movie, and when I found this top in my drawer (from oh circa 2008), I knew I had to pair it with white jeans…
Stole my title from the name of this dress… it is aptly named, though, wouldn’t you say? With this heat wave in Boston, the only sensible thing to wear is sandals and an easy summer-dress – I love the pretty print on this one, don’t you?
