There's nothing easier than wearing denim, tee, and a jacket. It was unexpectedly chilly today so I had a chance to wear a jacket. I can't wait until it really cools down and I can start layering my sweaters with jackets. What's your go to outfit?
To me, this piece looks like a hybrid between a trench, because of the length and a kimono because of the structure of the armhole. It's made out of a thin wool/cashmere blend and is lined with silk so it feels like butter. Usually in the winter, I'll wear this piece with a long sleeved sweater, which is nice too because then you can see the textural layers between the body and sleeves.
One of my favorite fabrications is silk charmeuse. It's very light and has a slight sheerness. I love this sleeveless blouse because it actually has very small pleats pressed in to the body. It's a very simple silhouette but still has a little bit of sexy.
One of my favorite contemporary designers is 3.1 Phillip Lim. I seem to want something of his every single season. His designs are modern, edgy, yet still feminine and interesting. I purchased this dress seasons ago, yet it still feels fresh and up to date. That's what I love about his stuff...even seasons later, his pieces remain relevant.
I have a thing for french terry. Especially when it's made into a fun, flowy silhouette. The sweatshirt is so comfortable, yet it still has movement and is more interesting then the run of the mill sweatshirt.
Can you believe it's officially been 8 weeks since Mei's leg surgery!?!? Well, she's gotten the OK from her Dr. to go back to being the hyper-active puppy! I'm just glad she's better and now we can start taking some walks together.
I love shawl/ponchos...they're so versatile. This one is especially fun because it has little ruffles at the edges. I would usually layer this over a tee and leggings with some flats for a easy chic plane outfit.
There's an old rule...."You don't wear white after Labor Day..." Well, seeing that Labor Day is just around the corner, I decided to bring the ol' white denim for it's last hurrah. Although honestly, I wouldn't be against wearing white just because it's FALL/WINTER.
For some reason, I feel like my neon yellow sweater has even more of a "POP" paired with my striped skirt. It's just amazing to me how stripes have become so versatile...a staple in any gal's wardrobe.
Looking forward at the fall trends, it seems like sweaters with intarsia will be the "it thing". Whether it's "the break-up" sweater from Phillip Lim here or the Burberry Runway "owl" here, fun sweaters are everywhere!
I decided to pull out this one...it was from when Stella McCartney did a Winter line for GAP kids. It's cashmere and SUPER soft. Do you have your eyes on any fun fall sweaters?
