Ponchos and capes are my favorite weekend apparel. They’re comfy for lounging on a couch watching some football, but equally as stylish for running around doing some errands. My favorite accessory to glam up a casual weekend look is a felt fedora like this one, to add an extra element of fashion to the outfit.

I was in Macy’s over the weekend and fell in love with this Southwestern Cardigan. It’s not too heavy, but super cozy and perfect for late October days! I sized up, because I think it would be so cute layered over a plaid flannel or a turtleneck as the weather gets colder- plus the pattern is great for Thanksgiving. I paired it with some ankle jeans and oxfords this weekend- after the winter we had in Massachusetts last year I have been incredibly resistant about pulling out my boots, since I know they’re the only shoes I’ll be wearing for the next five months. These oxfords from Madewell are incredible, and that’s not just my weakness for menswear talking! The leather is super breathable and doesn’t require any breaking in, I put them on the morning after they came in the mail and didn’t have to fight the urge to take them off once!

On days when my creative energy just isn’t there, I always reach for the same staples. This fall, they’ve been an oversized scarf and glasses paired with my favorite peep-toe booties and folder clutch. Throw these three items in and they can elevate even the simplest of outfits to the next level year round. My other go-to styling trick is usually a graphic tee layered under a denim or leather jacket. I can remember my mom teaching me about layering when I was eight years old, and the same trick still applies sixteen years later- layers make any outfit look better.

These Adam Lippes for Target pumps are closely edging in on my Prabal Gurung for Target heels for favorite pair in my closet. The silhouette is perfect, the pattern is fun, they’re comfortable, and they’re only $40- what more could you want in a pair of heels?!
Two stores I frequently visit for office-appropriate clothing are The Limited and Banana Republic– The Limited for their timeless pieces that will go with any and everything for years to come (like this blouse), and Banana Republic for their chic, office-appropriate interpretations of seasonal trends (like this faux leather pleated skirt).

One of my favorite fall trends is the suede skirt. It’s the perfect fabric for cool fall days, and camel is of course a perfect fall tone. This skirt can easily be styled for 70s vibe by adding some fringe, a chic work look with a button down, or a casual weekend look with a sweater and sneakers!

This faux leather pencil skirt is actually one I picked up last year at Forever 21, but is still perfectly on trend for this fall. It joins the ranks of a faux leather mini skirt and pleated faux leather midi skirt that are currently hanging in my closet waiting patiently to be broken out with fall fashions. The crispness of fall air is finally back in Massachusetts and gives me that ‘back to school’ vibe of getting back into a routine and refocusing my energy. I had a ton of fun this summer, but after a weekend away recouping I’m ready to get back into a regular posting schedule around here again, and hopefully bring some much needed new changes to the blog as well!

Items that need to be in your closet right now: a) a denim vest to throw on over everything, b) a simple white tee to throw on under everything, c) a pleated skirt that goes with everything, d) a pair of leopard print flats to add a little extra pop to every outfit, e) a reversible, vegan leather tote bag to carry around all your stuff in two separate ways, and f) a pair of outrageous sunglasses that just make you feel like a boss.

As we edge further into fall territory, I can’t help but feel inspired by the traditional collegiate prep styles swarming the New England area. Stripes, navy, and graphic tees are three big ones that come to mind, but are still wearable in the 90 degree heat. This skirt has been my go to piece (seen here last week!) since the colors are a bit more autumn appropriate than most of my summer skirts, but its still light and short enough to be comfortable in these late summer days. Graphic tees are one of my favorite ways to make a statement about my personality, especially ones like this J.Crew for David Sheldrick ‘Save More Elephants’ tee. 100% of the net proceeds from it are donated to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, to aid in their mission to protect and preserve Africa’s wildlife.
