Long sleeved T-Shirt Dress: Topshop (sold out, similar linked below!) |Plaid Flannel: Madewell |Loafers: Forever 21 |Bag: Chanel Petite Shopping Tote |Sunnies: Saint Laurent (old)
Just a quick outfit post for you guys– I wanted to share with you one of my fave looks to take you from summer to fall, especially on those days where you wake up and need layers, but by noon you are ready to pass out from the heat (lol). A long sleeved t-shirt dress, like this one above from Topshop, is my go to piece for this weather– you can roll or push the sleeves up when it gets warm and add or remove the flannel from your waist, depending on your temp. I like a plaid flannel with this super simple dress because it adds color, texture, and dimension to a pretty standard, plain dress. The loafers are perf for this weather because they are not as warm or heavy as a bootie, but feel just right when you are sick and tired of wearing the same sandals you’ve sported all summer (or are taking a break from pedicures, ahem). And if you’re wondering what’s inside the Barney’s bag, check out the previous post to see what I got!

Happy Fall guys!
1.Last summer look:
2. Fave end of summer Sunday-funday idea: The Brooklyn Flea Market
I love this place for special jewelry finds, vintage purses, and cool home furnishings– plus, there’s the food truck situation (!!!)…for me, going mid-summer is just too hot…since it’s held in a lot on Kent in Williamsburg with literally no shade, I like to hold off going until end of summer/September– so you can really enjoy meandering around without dying of heat stroke!
3.Elma Blint #littlegoldmix:
This is my fave tent at the Brooklyn Flea– Elma Blint jewelry is one of my go-to spots for dainty and unique gold pieces to add to my collection– her pieces are really well-made and don’t tarnish– most pieces are gold-dipped sterling silver. Check out my Instagram to see which pieces I ended up adding to my hoard!
4. Essie Fall 2015 Collection:
Since I was at the Essie X Seventeen fall preview party during Fashion Week, I got a sneak peak at their new Fall collection, inspired by rock -n- roll seventies rebels…super cool metallics and deep moody shades I can’t wait to sport all season long!
5. New In: Chloe Faye
So remember when I was trying to decide on a new grey bag for Fall?? Well, call off the dogs, the search is over– so happy to welcome this Chloe Faye suede and leather dream to my collection! Monica at Barneys was super helpful and sweet in helping me choose her– we even had a run in with Rebecca Minkoff herself (shopping in the same section!!!)– so basically it was an AWESOME DAY! The Faye is just the right size, a true medium everyday bag– and I’m really digging how its flat, but can still hold a lot–and the shoulder strap is removable so she can also become a clutch! In love.
Super beat now; after a wedding and bridal shower this weekend, I’m ready to relax!
Happy Sunday and have a great week guys!
For some reason, when I’m stumped on what to wear, I always find myself reaching for the good old Canadian Tux– (no offense, northern friends, we love this look!) It’s easy, comfortable, and actually more fashionable than you think– def one of my fave looks. Here are some of my past double denim looks:
To me, the key to pairing two different denim items is NOT trying to match the shades exactly– I like a little contrast, either in level of wash, or with distressing.
I wore this double denim look this past Sunday, for a day of food truck feasting and flea market shopping in Brooklyn:
See how the distressing on the jeans makes the perfect contrast with the uniformity of the chambray top’s coloring? I added the grey snakeskin loafers (faves of the season!) for a comfy, walkable, but fashionable forward touch, and carried my old fave quilted Marc Jacobs gold chain strap bag to add a bit of glamour to the overall look. Voila! — my go to weekend/fave lazy outfit.
Hope you try the double denim look this weekend!
