Happy Fall, Y’all

fall layersAutumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in New York. The bright foliage and giant concrete buildings make a great pair. So prepare to see a lot of Fall on the blog. I can’t get enough!

Fall Pastels

fall lookI think we all know I am big fan of the ruffle collar. So when I saw this top majorly on sale at the J.Crew Factory I was all like, screw my budget! I am buying this! I do not condone this reckless spending behavior, by the way.

A whisper of sparkle

a hint of sparkleDuring the day, it is hard to commit to a full-on sparkly look. But one can’t be expected to omit daytime sparkle all together. Luckily, layering season is upon us, so I layered my beloved “Long Island Housewife” sparkle blazer with a jean jacket for a look that is eye catching without being overpowering.

I’m blue

chambray topIn the wise words of Tobias Fünke, “I’m afraid I just blue myself.”

Sometimes, a girl just has to own wearing blue from head to toe.

Last Bit of Fall

It’s official, I am addicted to animal sweaters. I have had my eye on this J. Crew Scottie Dog sweater for  a while. When I saw it was 40% off at the outlet I just had to make it mine.

The Preppy Girl’s Uniform

When I put on this outfit I was all like, “Oh, this is basically the quintessential preppy girl uniform.” All I am missing is a monogram somewhere. I will pick up something monogrammed for the next time I wear this. Maybe a scarf? I actually did order monogrammed pillowcases. So maybe I can put one of those over my head.

Dusk Parrots

Sway Chic sent me this absolutely adorable parrot patterned shirt. Despite the wind and the fact that the sun was going down I just had to blog about it. I urge you to check out Sway — they have the cutest stuff. I am partial to their dresses, especially their lace dresses — because I think we all know how much I am loving lace dresses right now.

Summer to Winter

I generally don’t “put things away” when it gets cold out. I don’t have a separate hot weather/cold weather wardrobe, I just wear whatever I have. So do y’all remember my Famous Dress? Well, it’s back — with a sweater over it and some tights. It perfectly transitions from a sun dress to a Fall skirt.

Also, on a more serious note. Times are really hard for Lower NYC/New Jersey residents right now. Superstorm Sandy basically destroyed most of coastal New Jersey and wrecked havoc on lower Manhattan. Please be sure to text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 for hurricane relief. xo

Attempting Layering

This year, I am trying my best to be at least moderately cute during the cold months. I have come to realize that being cute when it’s cold requires mastering layering — something I usually never do. I am trying to do better and I have noticed that layering works! Putting on piles of clothes really does keep you warm without having to go straight to option two: the sleeping bag coat.
