Fall Palette

A.L.C. sweater & skirt // Free People jacket (old) 
// YSL pumps (borrowed) // A.V. Max cuff via Lemon Stripes // Celine bag

During fall, I mostly wear the same colors: see Amy's tweet to see what I mean. A couple of weeks ago, I picked up this A.L.C. skirt and top from Intermix. A.L.C. is one of my favorite brands- each piece can be worn over and over and together or as separates. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite sweaters also from A.L.C. The maroon set would look amazing paired with a pale pink or camel coat.  I would love to know what colors or pieces that you will be wearing a ton during fall. See below for some items in my fall color palette. (all because it's fall still expect to see brights and fun prints...) 


As much as I love summer, I am not sad to leave it by the time Back to School season comes around. Above are the items that I make sure to repurchase or have on hand every year- ex. 1,2,4- and items that I have my eye on for this year. I love restocking my desk with pretty paper and pens and adding chic jackets and sweaters to my closet! Leave a comment below telling me what other BTS posts you would like to see!

1: A chic backpack- I love this one from Herschel Supply Co.
2: Pretty notepads- Design Darling has an excellent collection!  They make a desk look 10 times better.
3: Easy footwear- Bright flats and ankle boots are my go-to picks. 
4: Gold jewelry- Can make any outfit more streamlined and polished! Check out Julie Vos here and my favorite watch here!
5: Colorful pouches- Ideal for keeping everything in your backpack/locker/gym bag organized! I love these (shown above) and these!
6: Everyday jacket- The army jacket is an essentials for Fall. Enough said.
8: T-Shirt dress- Wear day to night, week day to weekend, and in every season! Splendid's are my favorite.

Summer Leather

Bailey 44 Top // Zara Skort // Pour La Victoire Heels (old) // Clare Vivier Clutch // A.V. Max Cuff 

Please tell me I'm not the only one reaallly excited for Fall! I already started buying a little bit of fall clothes, but I'm trying to make sure some of what I buy I can also wear now. For example, this Bailey 44 t-shirt. It is a simple striped tee- my fave- but it has leather panels on the sides which makes it ten times more better. I will definitely be wearing this baby into fall.


Rebecca Minkoff Dress // Vince Heels // Bop Basics Tote // Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses // 
A.V. Max Cuff via Lemon Stripes // Michael Kors Watch // Julie Vos Bracelets c/o // Essie "Blanc"

This is one of my favorite looks ever! A chambray dress is such a wearable item that transitions from season to season. I paired the dress with my go-to items; Vince heels, a straw tote, and gold jewelery. The cut of the dress is perfect- it has some stretch and fits nicely all around. Can I mention how beautiful these flowers are from the garden,?! The colors are incredibly vibrant and perfect for tabletops around the house.

Yesterday was such a busy yet fun day! In the morning I played tennis- trust me I'm not that good. Then off to the city for a nice afternoon/evening. I went to the Stripes & Sequins x Bauble Bar party in Soho for some shopping and crafts! It was so nice meeting Grace and diy-ing! Bauble Bar's pop-up shop is so fun- I recommend a visit if you have the chance. Afterward, I went to Momofuku Milk Bar and picked up some yummy cookies. What is your favorite cookie/sweet from Momofuku? I ended the day with shopping at the Kate Spade Saturday Window-Shop! Might be the coolest way to shop!

I wore my new favorite shorts from Rebecca Taylor. I love the bleached look they have- the fit is also really nice! I kept the look simple and easy with some of my favorite items-Clare Viver clutch and Vince shoes. Be sure to check back later this week to see the pieces I picked up from Bauble Bar and the fun DIY project I created!


Joie Blouse // Topshop Dress (old) // Yosi Samra Flats c/o VPR // Persifor Clutch via Lemon Stripes
 // Urban Outfitters Sunglasses // Hermes Bracelet // Essie Nail Polish in "Blanc" 

One of my favorite prints is ikat. I purchased this blouse a while back and finally have worn it. It's perfect for Summer parties and easy dressing. I paired it with an eyelet dress from Topshop and simple flats from Yosi Samra- they are so comfortable! There is also a small bit of print mixing in this outfit with my new Persifor clutch from Lemon Stripes! The print is lovely and I love the small cork detailing on the rim!It can also double as a makeup bag for traveling. Speaking of traveling- earlier this week I was featured on Hitha On the Go, discussing traveling and packing!
