Happy Friday! Okay, first, because I’m still giddy about it… my dreams came true this week and I got to meet my lady crush and fashion idol, Jenna Lyons, in person at a J.Crew event in Boston. She was super cool and friendly – and (of course) effortlessly stylish and chic. I was actually wearing these same vegan leather leggings in dark green at the event, and she said she liked them(!). So they’re my new favorites.

Anyways, just had to get that off my chest. Phew. Today’s post is all about embracing fall weather by piling on the light layers – and if you live in New England, this is basically a requirement. This outfit is actually pretty minimal (shirt, denim vest, wool coat) – I would’ve added a sweater if it had been colder. In my opinion, layering works best when you’re working with different prints or textures (in this case: silk, denim & wool) to add some interest. Which is why I threw on the denim vest (might seem like an odd choice?). I actually bought it back in July, but haven’t worn it much until now! It seems to work a lot better over light sweaters and button-downs than summery dresses. And I love the light distressed wash.

With the addition of some rose gold metallic pumps (my wedding shoes!) and my new carry-all tote from Cuyana, the overall outfit ends up feeling pretty cohesive and neutral – despite the different layers.

Have a fun, candy-filled Halloween weekend!

It’s been another weird week of weather in Boston – freezing cold, then in the 60’s! I actually felt like I was jumping the gun when I bought this J.Crew coat during a recent sale, but apparently not. Anyways. For a casual fall weekend outing, this Toggery striped midi dress fits the bill: it’s super soft and comfy, and lends itself well to layers. I kept it super simple for a Saturday shopping trip with tan booties, a perfect-for-fall tweed Timex Weekender watch (aptly named, huh?) and the dusty pink coat that I was sure I wouldn’t have to break out for another month or so… sigh.

I hope you’re having a great week and enjoying the fall weather!

Hi, I’m back, and I’m a married woman! First, let me just say I’m sorry for the extended hiatus and I really hope you haven’t abandoned my blog entirely! I promise I have an explanation: when the combo of wedding planning + a full time job started to overwhelm me, I thought it would be best to hit pause on at least one aspect of my life. Because I was literally sleeping 3-4 hours a night and feeling stressed beyond belief. I’ve missed blogging, but to be honest – it’s been really tough to resume things now that I’m settling back into my “normal” routine post-wedding (which basically consists of working and stuffing my face with food nonstop). I’ve been in a bit of a slump, but I’m ready to tackle fall (and fall fashion) – just after this one warm-weather outfit! Please bear with me!

Kev took these photos of me while we were on our mini moon in Panama and I wanted to share a little remnant of tropical style. I’ll also pull together a recap of our stay in Panama soon, along with photos of the glorious American Trade Hotel (an Ace hotel) where we stayed – it was unbelievably cool and impeccably designed. People have been asking me “why Panama?” because I guess it seems like a random choice for a mini moon… but it’s definitely on the verge of becoming a really trendy destination (and for good reason). You’ll see!

Anyways, one afternoon when it was pouring rain, we took a trip to the Soho Mall – a super fancy collection of high-end stores (like Chanel, Saint Laurent, Valentino, etc.) in Panama City. I did some shopping at Topshop – since we don’t have one in Boston and ended up buying these wildflower print pants. They were super comfy to wear during a long day of museum visits and aimless wandering around Casco Viejo. I paired them with a white sequin crop top and the perfect pair of caramel leather sandals from J.Crew.

I promise I have some seasonally-appropriate outfit posts lined up. Soon! I hope you had a nice long weekend!

Outfit details:

Shirt: Bailey 44 ‟You’re the top” top (also available in black)// Pants: Topshop wildflower cigarette pants // Clutch: Loeffler Randall copper lock clutch // Shoes: J.Crew Amalia high heel sandals // Sunglasses: Illesteva leonard sunglasses // Bangles: ProjectDahlia rose gold bangle set (via Etsy) //
