Most of the time, I’ll convince myself to buy something that’s “really, really on sale” – even if I know it’s not going to get a lot of use (I know it’s a bad habit, but I’m getting better). Anyways, every once in awhile I’ll have a serendipitous shopping experience and find something amazing that’s also amazingly priced (example: this classic DVF wrap dress that I scored at T.J.Maxx on clearance). I used to own some wrap dresses in college (with bolder prints), but solid navy makes this one feel extra sleek. And the DVF wrap dress is definitely iconic (have you seen American Hustle?). It maintains a bit of its retro vibe with a conservative hemline and collar, but is still one of the  most flattering and wearable silhouettes out there. I decided to keep the accessories to a minimum – adding a bit of interest with some striped pumps and metallic clutch.

So it’s September – and, mentally, I’m ready to break into my fall wardrobe – but since it’s still 90 degrees out there, I’ll be clinging to my summery floral prints a little while longer (and also, these photos were taken a few weeks ago). I’d probably find a way to wear this J.Crew hibiscus print top year-round, anyways. It’s happy, vibrant and super graphic – especially when paired with darker, contrasting solids.

Anyways, I hope you have a great weekend – and if you’re in the Boston area, come visit me at Glamour and GQ’s Lookbook Live event on Sunday (more details here). I’ll be there talking fall trends and giving style consultations alongside experts from Glamour and GQ (plus, there will be lots of style contests and giveaways happening throughout the event). Hope to see you/meet you there!
