Stuart Weitzman heels (another option) // Chanel
Celine sunglasses (similar) // Necklace (similar)

I popped into Topshop the other day and couldn’t resist picking up this leather pencil skirt (it’s only $75!), this plaid button down, this ivory romper (it runs small so I bought a size 6), and this blazer from their A/W Collection.  I’m still thinking about a few other pieces I tried on like this military jacket, this cream coat, and this colorful playsuit.  This leather skirt comes in a more office appropriate fabric which would look great paired with this classic trench.  I love the combination of leather + plaid and have a feeling this outfit will be on repeat throughout the season.

Pre-Fall Must Haves

Pre-Fall Must Haves

Vest (also love this one) // Heels // Hat
Book (also here) // Nail Polish // Clutch // Jeans

A few of my pre-fall must haves… I wear this felt hat with everything from jeans and button downs in the fall to rompers in the summer.  Fur vests are the perfect fall layer – I love the color of this one.  Flare jeans are incredibly flattering – I recommend this pair from Frame (I’m also obsessed with their skinny jeans.)  This clutch is a great alternative to this leopard clutch.  A deep navy polish like Orage by Chanel is a welcome change from my usual polish.  These heels are surprisingly comfortable (they also come in this color and this color.)  My girlfriend Meghan told me this book is a must read.  It’s written by former Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar editor Kate Betts and documents her adventures as a young woman in Paris. I just ordered it here!  Shop more of my pre-fall must haves below.

Fall transition

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

Summer is slowly coming to an end so I wanted to share a roundup of some of my favorite summer looks that can easily transition into the fall.  My staple fall jackets are a classic trench, silk trench, military jacket, and leather jacket.  For dresses – you can’t go wrong with a fitted T-shirt dress, shirtdress, and lace midi dressChambrays look great with everything from a pair of skinny jeans, to a pencil skirt, or silk trouser.  For bags – I love this brown tote for everyday, this chic black bag for meetings, and this leopard clutch for nights out (I just picked up this one which has a slightly smaller pattern.)  I think my love of simple, neutral shoes is pretty obvious by now! ;) I’m currently eyeing this pair, this pair, and this pair.
