A leather skirt is definitely a wardrobe staple. It’s great for fall dressed down with sneakers or booties, or dressed up with heels and a blazer. In the winter, it’s perfect with tights and it’s one of those pieces that you can really make your own. While leather may feel a bit edgy, and it is, you can style it to fit your own personal style, whether that’s with an oversized sweater or a silk blouse. I love this one from French Connection because of it’s high waist fit, but there’s plenty of options depending on your style. Headed off this morning for the beginning of the wedding weekend festivities. My cousin is getting married tomorrow so I’ll be sharing some photos on Instagram of the big day!
If these colors don’t get you in the mood for fall I don’t know what will! I’ve been really into hats (and keeping my skin out of the sun because the summer brought out tons of pigmentation-but I digress) and the color of this wide brim fedora is so pretty it adds a total downtown chic vibe to any outfit. Paige Denim is always one of my faves, and I LOVE these skinny jeans particularly because of the high waist fit. I’m not much of a leather girl either, but I like the coated jeans because they have that leather look for when you want a little edginess. I wore this outfit to dinner downtown and I like that it has an easy, chic vibe, not too dressy or too edgy but still sophisticated. The weather keeps getting cooler which is making me a little sad because it’s making it a lot harder to swim every day. But I am loving that I get to wear cozy sweaters and wool hats again. There’s always a bright side! Happy Thursday. xx

If it weren’t for the fact that I am always cold I would live in this outfit all fall. It was a particularly warm day so this light knit sweater and skirt was perfect. We went for a swim at the beach and the water was perfect. It’s these crisp fall days that are still warm enough to swim that make living in Newport so worth it. These are the days I think about in March when it’s freezing cold and gray. We practically had the beach to ourselves all afternoon so we savored every minute of the dry air, warm sun and bright turquoise blue water. And Nora was pretty happy she got to come along even though dogs still aren’t allowed on the beach during the day. We had to break the rules, it was just too perfect.

I am all about leopard prints and there are tons of great pieces for fall. This pencil skirt from Talbots is so comfortable and chic, I wore it in NY during fashion week and it was such a hit. I love the leopard on leopard but it’s definitely not for everyone so if you want to test the waters with the print something like this coat or this sweater are great options. Cobalt is a great color to compliment leopard, I love these pumps with this skirt and the striped button down ties in the blue. Perfect way to mix prints!

It was so nice to slip on some jeans and a tee and enjoy NYC for a night in my Ariat boots. I mentioned in my last post wearing them, that they are super soft and comfortable and gave me a much needed break from stiletto heels! Sometimes you just have to keep it simple, and I kept this outfit chic by sticking to the basics. The boots and the bag go so well together I let them be the standout pieces in the ensemble and stuck with a simple tee and jeans. It was the perfect outfit to explore NYC and the midtown neighborhood where we stayed. I’m definitely looking forward to rocking these boots all fall (and winter)!
