Quick Friday post for you guys, in case you have some fun plans this weekend and need an outfit idea! One of my favorite new combos for Fall is a turtleneck sweater paired with a 70s A-line mini (preferably in a fun texture, material or print) and anchored by pointed toe ankle booties. Add a flat, structured, medium sized bag with a long strap, and this look can literally take you anywhere– I’ll wear it to work, to parties, for dinner and drinks…it can be interpreted as casual or dressy as you make it. I love that it’s a fresh take on a skirt-top-and-boots combination; and one that we haven’t seen a whole lot of yet– and I bet you guys already have at least two of the four required pieces in your closets! I wore a similar look (but with lace up sandals) to a bridal shower last weekend:

One trend that will carry you through these last weeks of summer straight into fall (and next spring) is the “detailed white sneaker”. Once associated with middle aged dads on vacation, retirees in Florida and humans under the age of 5, the white low top sneaker is definitely cool again. Pair them (obviously) with skinnies and a casual tee, sweater or graphic sweatshirt, or my favorite current way to wear them, with dresses to lend a fresh and sporty vibe that’s way less expected than sandals or heels. Extra extra credit for wearing these sporty kicks with cool details like snakeskin, studs, metallic details, or different textures. EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA credit for pairing them with this fall’s hottest pants shape, culottes or wide leg cropped pants. Below, how I styled them this weekend with one of my favorite summer dresses and a denim jacket– totally different than how I wore this dress the first time, here:
My exact sneaks are from Aldo (linked here), and are under $100. Below, find some more of my favorite detailed white sneakers in varying price ranges:
Top Row: $$$
Middle Row: $$

Hope your own pair of fresh white kicks helps make saying goodbye to summer a little easier for you guys!

So I actually picked these black overalls up from H&M months ago, and I just never got a chance to shoot them for a post…yesterday, I wore this outfit to a friend’s house party, and even though this is the first official weekend of summer (!), it was cool and rainy in New York yesterday, so I busted out my favorite overalls outfit one last time before the oppressive heat of summer begins!
Whenever I wear my overalls, people always say to me “They look so cute on you, but I could never pull them off “– and my answer is always OF COURSE YOU CAN!!! Seriously though. Overalls are not just for kids or painters (although whenever I do wear them, male coworkers, friends, and even my husband make an inevitable “how much do you charge to paint a house?” joke…). They are for me, and they certainly are for you too! If you are new to the overalls game, I suggest a black pair like these, because they do feel a little more “grown up” and sophisticated (lol that “sophisticated” is in the same sentence as “overalls). I’ve worn these black ones with this striped tee and Converse many times, but I’ve also worn these with heels to dinner, black and white loafers to work; and I’m already imagining wearing them in the fall with thin sweaters underneath…
This exact pair from H&M is sold out, but below you’ll find three pairs I also like, along with the exact items I’m wearing above.
