This stripe top is such a great transitional item to buy and I could not be more excited to share two different ways to wear it with you all! Trust me, this is one item you do NOT want to miss out on!
I had been that girl complaining that the temps weren’t feeling Fall enough around here–until this past weekend that is. It took a turn for the COLD and I dealt with it by pulling out all my favorite beanies.
I wore this look to grab coffee and then go to lunch with Ethan yesterday after we got finished with a shoot. I had forgotten how cozy and warm a beanie can be! Totally makes a difference when in the chill when it’s windy outside. If you don’t have a couple in your closet then you should change that asap! I can be pretty picky. I don’t like slouchy ones and I always make sure they have a pom pom. I get a lot of wear out of this nude one and I also keep a basic black one in heavy rotation. && I have my eye on this one. Might have to order it next!
Today is my Mom’s birthday! HBD, Pam! 🙂 We are heading home to celebrate with her tomorrow night and then we leave for CA on Thursday so it’s going to be a busy week. I can’t wait! Hope you all have a good one. ps, I have a caaaa-ute pair of shoes to share with you all on Wednesday so be on the lookout!
A hard (but very rewarding cycling class), a good bowl of turkey chili and some HBO–last night didn’t shape up to be a bad one at all! I am in full on fall mode.
Which means I have had my eyes peeled for some good neutral sweaters to add to my closet. In my book, there’s nothing better than a good grey sweater! It makes me oh so happy. && this one does not disappoint. It’s basic enough to layer with and has enough detailing to be worn alone. The material is really soft and not itchy at all. Perfect to be worn during the week to work or on the weekends when you just want to be casual & cozy. [wearing a US 4]
&& you all–this scarf… is BACK! It was my very fave last year so I was thrilled to see that it was back in stock. It’s oversized, SOOOO soft, under $50 and comes in great neutral shades. I highly suggest you grab one. You can thank me later! 😉 ps, I have my eye on this one for my next scarf purchase.
Here’s a couple more perrrrfect grey options from Nordstrom:
Ethan and I went to the movies a couple weekends ago. We hadn’t been in ages and now I am already ready to go back. I swear there’s nothing that compares to it in terms of “checking out”. When we sit and watch tv at home we are always multitasking–working on a blog post/writing emails/checking our phones. When we go to the movies we sit and focus only on the movie and the chocolate covered raisins and the wine. (Ok, maybe the last two are specific to only me, but you get the point, ha) The best part? We leave fully relaxed! And the recliners they have now don’t hurt either! So, have you all seen any good ones recently? I need a recommendation. 🙂
Happy hump day!

So, I am not a 1990’s baby but my boyfriend is so when I saw this cute little tee and it had that year on it I figured it was the perfect excuse to buy! There are SO many cheeky t-shirts out there right now and I was dying to have one. [wearing a small]
Ok–let’s focus in on this cardigan for a hot minute. I have gotten SO much use out of this since buying. I wear it at least once or twice a week to work. I love the longer length to make it a tad different. [wearing a small]
The weather here has been incredible–not nearly as hot & humid as August typically is (I’m sure I just jinxed us, haha). We did dinner on the patio last night to take advantage of it [see my outfit here] & tonight we’re headed to a concert that Ethan bought us tickets to! I hope you all are having a good week!
Don’t get me wrong, I love an easy summer outfit BUT at times I find myself thinking they can seem a bit unfinished. It’s easy in the cooler months when you can layer with a jacket or add a scarf or hat. It gives the outfit a bit of dimension and makes it seem balanced and complete. I think the answer to this in the warmer temps is a belt. Belts come and go as far as fashion trends but they are definitely in right now. Statement belts are having such a moment and I am certainly not complaining about it! This western belt has been a staple for me. I wear it ALL. THE. TIME! I just love how it can pull an outfit together. [wearing a small]
Oh, and I know this off the shoulder top is just a plain black knit and nothing special really but it has served me well! I have ended up needing it with so many outfits. It’s only $25 so grab one. It’ll come in handy! …and now that I think about it, I should definitely grab one in white. Going to order that today! [wearing a xs]
We took these pics on the cobblestone streets in Soho. Soho will forever be one of my favorite areas to be during the day in NYC. I love the shopping (even if it is often just window shopping) and the fact that there’s so many great coffee shops, restaurants and little bars for a cocktail. It’s where you will find many of the trendy well known spots and it’s also where you will run into a new little gem during each trip. Ethan and I found a great little bar with a rosé happy hour that we stopped into!
Happy Friday, loves! Ethan and I are headed to a patio party later tonight and I am looking forward to a glass of wine and the feeling of the weekend. Hope you all have a good one!
