A Few of My Favorite Fall Things

It finally feels like Fall, so here a few of my favorite new things. I think the bold white booties are probably my newest obsession….for many reasons. First of all, the quality is so stellar I almost couldn’t believe it as I unpacked them. So pretty I was almost sad to hit the streets in them. They are the perfect combination of kid soft leather with a slight sheen. With a super walkable block heel. Even the soles were leather so pale it looked white. And they felt perfect the second I put them on. So yes, count them as my new #1 obsession. Thank you, Loeffler Randall!

So…the rest of my favorites. This fuzzy, comfy, sparkly sweater. It’s kind of like a shrug, making it something you can layer over lots of things — a button-down shirt, turtleneck or simple white (or black!) tank as I did here. Love love love the sequins for that magic touch day or night. How cute would it be paired with tweed pants or over a velvet slip dress?!? And these jeans. For me, Madewell has hit it out the park this year  as far as denim is concerned. This high-waisted boyfriend silhouette is going to be on rotation weekly, and then some. Love the subtle paint splotch details, too. Guess my “boyfriend” is an artist… Ha ha. Oh…and a cute metallic bag wins for the perfect finish.

Looking at these pics and thinking I’m due for a haircut. Stay tuned…

Black & Camel Combo

img_8923A wee bit tired of black and white as your go-to look? Think about combining black and camel. For me, it’s a warmer palette that’s especially flattering to every skin tone. This bell-sleeved peplum sweater is one of my favorite purchases of the season, so that’s where I started. To balance out its fitted and flared silhouette, I paired it with black skinnies. These have patched pleather knees which gives them a bit more of a fashion edge. For accessories, I chose my beloved and oh-so-plush personalized cashmere scarf, a teeny (but it still holds your phone, keys, lipstick and credit card/cash) bucket bag (note to self: ring handles are “it”) and leopard print booties. And let’s not forget Bowie, the ultimate Black & Camel combo!
