While “shopping my closet” I was tiring to play with pieces that are quintessential fall and make them late summer appropriate. This black mini skirt has been in and out of rotation for a few years now and is just as cute in the winter (seen here) as it is in early fall styled with a denim jacket and espadrilles.
This black and white gingham blazer is my second blazer from Veronica Beard and I found both of them at Nordstrom Rack! I had always wanted a plaid timeless blazer and this fit the bill perfectly! The blazer came with me to Massachusetts earlier this Summer and was so cute with cutoffs and a flowy black tank. Transitioning into Fall (which I don’t have any business doing yet) I paired it with a tee shirt, denim and flats – this combo will be on high rotation through Fall. Then when winter comes around a cool all-black look is on docket!
I have been wanting a Rhode Resort Ella dress so over a year and when this one finally went on sale I knew it was time to pull the trigger! Nervous about how it would fit because I never wear mini dresses it turned out perfect – mainly because I love the balance of a shorter hem with long sleeves. Sundresses that can go from Summer to Fall are always great- lower cost per wear!

I have always loved an all cream/white outfit, it is clean and simple yet bold in the same way. Even though I always personally think it can work sometimes it needs to be broken up a little bit depending on the occasion. Cue the denim jacket! Here in Houston where we love the AC, so having a denim jacket doesn’t only complete your outfit but will most likely be needed at one of your destinations throughout the day.

New online shops make me nervous, what will it feel like? will it be lined? are there pockets? will it be itchy? will it look cheap IRL? The list goes on! I was excited when I was able to finally visit the & Other Stories store in D.C last month and touch everything. In all honesty, not everything feels amazing but I knew it wouldn’t because their prices are so good but it didn’t feel bad either. Will definitely turn my browsing of their website every once in a while to shopping their website every once in a while.
Do you like & Other Stories?
Have you ever been on Need Supply Co.? I always peruse it but have never pressed checkout until a few weeks ago and I am so glad I did! The sites price range ranges but I have always been intrigued by the brand Farrow they carry. Great prices, classic styles with a hint of trendiness and I can now say great fabrication! I ordered this dress and a second (which was sadly too big) and was so pleased with the fit and feel. There is currently a ton of there stuff on sale on Need Supply right now- I highly recommend!
