steal her style #4

i found this look while perusing the latest fashion week street snaps and loved how this girl nailed a transitional look. the color palette and oxford shoes scream “ready for fall” while a mini skirt shows off still tan from summer legs and the fringey bag has the vibe of coachella days gone by. get her look with my picks below…

#1 the top. it was surprisingly difficult to find a delicate yet simple long sleeved top option. as a major sweater girl myself, im drawn to this cropped isabel marant knit, but the outfit would also look amazing with a see by chloe bell sleeved top, in either navy or cream (love the buttoned back!).

 

#2 the shoes. im willing to bet this lucky b is wearing a stella mccartney pair, but you can snag a near identical twin for much less thanks to our friends at h&m

 

#3 the skirt. i’m having a girl crush moment on tanya taylor right now (the outnet has a great selection currently) which explains why i die for this diagonal fringe mini, but banana has a cleaner pin stripe version on clearance here

 

#4 the bag. since my skirt has fringe on it, i went with a streamlined jcrew mini messenger in a contrasting color (only $100!) but her exact bag is by chloe. im also obsessed with this quilted maje style if you want black– i saw it in person at saks and the leather feels like buttah.

 

#5 the sunglasses. keep it classic in gold rimmed oliver peoples aviators, which add a slightly 70s vibe with gradient lenses.

 

thats all i’ve got today– hope this inspires you to dig through your closet and wear something you otherwise wouldn’t. have a great wednesday! im currently sick in bed so apologies for the delayed upload this morning.

happy friYAY chickadees. in honor of the gloriousness of this day, welcome to a round up of my latest fall wardrobe whims and desires, otherwise known as the hit list. a sartorial smorgasbord if you will, of everything under the sun I have my eye on. since attention spans are short these days, I capped it at 7 today, but trust me, the full list is much longer!

#1 cut out booties. the other night post yoga, i spied a chic little pea eating outside at Rosemary’s wearing some badass booties and had to restrain myself from asking where they were from. they were slightly western, but new york edgy, with a walkable 2″ heel — the perfect pair for current 70-degree pre-fall weather. you know, when you want the fall-ish vibe but without the hot feet? so far ive found these babies, this studded pair, a sleek version by my lover philip lim (could buy everything in his Fall ’16 collection),  a basket weave jeffrey campbell, and taupe ones by cool girl brand kaanas.

#2 a dark shearling jacket. yes, this request total counteracts the practicality of desired purchase numero uno, but i gotta find one. kind of a kate bosworth vibe, no? lurrrve this vince x563, this marked down see by chloe, dip a toe in the water with a fluffy version from nasty gal, or sell a kidney for an alc.

#3 tibi sweatersssss. like amy smilovic, your sweater game is currently STRONG. i want them all and i want them now. obsessed with this cozy military style pocket sweater, also this one, which has sleeves that can be buttoned up or left open, and who doesn’t like a pom pom? so fun. boom shocka locka.

#4 velvet slingbacks from banana. rumor has it that bananas shoes are made by vince camuto, which explains their dominance season after season while the clothes are usually questionable at best (but seem to be improving this year). i saw this chiiic pair and loved their lux simplicity (they look like manolos!). perfect to dress up jeans, wear to work with skirts or debut during thanksgiving festivities–something about turkey and velvet just feels so right…

#5 gold ear huggies, crawlers, studs and knots. the more i live in new york, the more i want to pierce my ears all over. call it some weird form of delayed teenage rebellion (trust me, i did NOT have any sort of a rebellious streak at 16…more like nerd alert) but i think the driving force behind said mutilation is all the dainty, clingy, crawly designs out there. they look best in threes, fours and fives– the more the merrier! i want these baguettes, flower huggies (similar here), an ear cuff, and this gigi hadid approved pair (find a simpler style for half the price here).

#6 this dress will be mine come holiday parties, mark my words. debating this romper too (oops!)

#7 winter shorts. these belted dvf darlings became mine last week (25% off with code FRIENDS25), after i lusted after suede shorts at intermix all of last fall. try a pair bare legged now and with tights for later. so cute with a basic t or turtleneck. not sold? sailor shorts by derek lam or a skort version by carven.
