nothing like getting into the fall spirit than pumpkin picking (and by picking i mean choosing one from a bunch sitting in a field that's already been cut from the vine and sorted by size) ... i wore my fall uniform of skinny jeans, a button-up and booties ... it was a little chilly so i layered a down vest under my lightweight jacket and piled on my chunky scarf. and of course topped it off with a hat .... i mean, it was the weekend and that's what i do on weekends.

happy wednesday!

it's starting to really feel like fall now ... i actually like wearing chunky scarves but i try to hold out as long as i can because i know i'll be wearing them for monthsssss (ugh). i wore this outfit on sunday for a day of brunch and shopping on the lower east side and nolita. i can't get enough of these vans slip-ons, i'm resisting the urge to buy more..... and my new B hat!

happy hump day!

nyc wedding.

 dress: asos. jacket: the limited sample sale. bag and earrings: vintage. shoes: zara.

this is what i wore to a wedding last friday evening (at the central park boathouse which was super cool) .... since i don't dress up that often (let's face it, lately i've been really into slouchy clothes and flat shoes, mostly my checkerboard vans), it was fun to put on a dress, heels (4" heels nonetheless, my feet were not thanking me by the end of the night) and giant, rhinestone earrings. oh, and the bf cleans up pretty well .... at least i think so.

i have gotten a few comments on this coat and where to get it but unfortunately, it was from a sample sale a few years ago. however, i did find some other green jacket options, see below, along with other items from this look... to see the striped dress without the jacket (kicking myself for not getting a blog-worthy photo of it), see here.

happy friday and happy shopping!

leopard.

 dress: madewell. jacket: H&M (similar). booties: steven. bag: zara. sunglasses: ray-ban. bracelet: miansai

this white dress is so easy. i threw on a leopard jacket and black booties to make it more fall-like .... adding layers to your summer dresses is a good way to transition into fall (instead of thinking you have to store you summer favorites until next year). just add a blazer or cardigan and a pair of booties and you're good to go.

weekend tomboy : jordans

hat: similar. tshirt: H&M. shorts: levi's sneaks: jordan. sunglasses: ray-bans

this was last weekend when the weather was like summer .... we rode bikes around red hook and checked out a chocolate factory and whiskey distillery which was pretty cool. these are my new jordans (which i debuted on instagram) .... my first pair and i have to admit, they're pretty awesome. i wore them with, what else, denim cut-offs and a white top - my warm weather go-to (which might be hiding out in my closet for a while now that the temperatures have dropped, boo) ...

white after labor day.

 top: american apparel (similar). skirt: gap (similar). shoes: zara (similar). sunglasses: ray-ban. 

  grey, white and black …. my favorite colors! this nice weather we’ve been having in NYC has made it fun to mix and match summery pieces with fall pieces – like pairing this white skirt (that i wore all summer) with a sweatshirt type top and heels. obviously i don’t believe in the antiquated “no white after labor day” rule …. as long as you mix your white pieces with more fall-like pieces, you can be season appropriate.

new york.

 tshirt: madewell. chambray shirt: gap (similar). shorts: bb dakota (via ladybird). booties: steven. bag: zara. sunglasses: ray-ban.

i can't get enough of this awesome weather ... trying to enjoy it before winter gets it's cold, dark, snowy hands on us for oh, about 5 months. bleh. anyway... i still love my "bryn" leather shorts (has nothing to do with the name... but it's a good name, let's be honest) from BB dakota from my favorite store, ladybird. wearing a shirt around my waist is not only a way to add to a look but it's handy when it gets chilly in this summer to fall transition time. and these booties are my new thing. like 'em?

happy friday! enjoy the weekend.
