Frock Around The Clock, Look 3

So here’s one last look at dressing up a Summer maxi dress and taking it straight into Fall. Confession: I bought this lovely violet maxi to wear to a wedding but decided to go with a something else when the weather turned cool (and I hadn’t unpacked this sweater or booties!). If you have an early Fall wedding, big party or even special date night planned, I think this outfit would be perfect. And, it combines key fashion trends that show no sign of cooling off — the midi or maxi dress, violet/lavender/lilac, a chunky knit sweater and white booties.

Get Your Moto Started

So Spring may have officially arrived, but it’s nowhere in sight up here in JC. In spite of that, I’ve decided to take a wishful approach to dressing in the days ahead. When temps rise into the 50s, I’m going to break out whatever lighter layers I can. First on the list, a moto jacket. In white leather, no less. This jacket is such a classic you could collect it in many colors, textures and silhouettes. Note to self, now that shopping hiatus is over look for a new black one. Or perhaps a moto jacket in an unexpected shade or texture? Neutral? Bright? What would you pick?

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!
