steal her style #6

the weather gods have not cooperated with me (yet!) but i am dying for a day warm enough to slip into an easy, slinky dress and lots of light neutrals– hopefully accented with a healthy (faux) glow like alessandra, above. get the vibe with these slip dress options by anine bing, mango, rag & bone, topshop and the reformation

1– silk slip dress 2– oversized jean jacket (available in petite!)

3– woven mules (under $100) 4– two-tone bucket bag 5– horse bit belt

6– my new fave all natural lip balm (thx rjb!) 7– coin necklace

back to school

two days of much needed girl time in DC this weekend led to the usual discussions of jobs, puppies, weddings, workouts, and of course– fash-shunnnn. the unanimous decision on fall’s ‘must have’ shopping list? a denim skirt. let’s review…

to avoid a full throwback to our middle school A&F mini days, look for one that’s 60’s inspired, dark colored and tailored. i’ve rounded up a plethora of inexpensive options out there– a pocketed madewell and nearly identical jcrew version, a wrap style from asos, topshop, snap front by rag & bone jean and one marked down at club monaco. perfect with a striped t-shirt half tucked for now, and worn under an oversized fluffy sweater once the real chill sets in. ammmirightttt?!
