Wait – where did the weekend go?! Adam and I were busy all over town, and then out of town, shooting a bunch of holiday content that I can’t wait to share with you all (you’ll want to tune in on November 14th). So while I didn’t do much relaxing, I did wear this relaxed outfit on Saturday afternoon which involved my softest plaid boyfriend shirt and these comfy slip-on ankle boots.
A brunch-indulging, sidewalk-strolling, weekend-ready look.. because I am very ready for the weekend. I wore this striped dress, quilted vest and sneakers around town last Sunday when we spent most of the day enjoying this ongoing warm weather in New York and not having much of a schedule. Which is in stark contrast to the packed schedule I’ve got for this weekend – but at least I’ve got the relaxed outfit, right?
Truth be told, I love a good ‘basic’ outfit. Skinny jeans, knee high leather boots, turtleneck sweater. It’s easy and always works. But I hate to feel boring when it comes to fashion, so I always try to incorporate one little signature touch to make an outfit feel unique. Adding a cluster of brooches to a jacket has long since been a favorite little style trick and I’m thrilled to see them making such a comeback this season.
Talk to me in 3 months and I’ll say I hate coats of any kind, but the first time I put them on each year? I love ’em. The coziness, the way you can play with layers, the mix of textures. Suddenly a sundress and sandals just seems like a distant, boring notion. So when Banana Republic gave me the chance to pick out a fresh fall outerwear combo for the season, I hit ‘add to cart’ before you can say November.
Thank goodness that winter weather from last week wasn’t here to stay (yet) and I’m able to sneak in a few more days of bare legs. Since I know that won’t last forever, I soaked up the weekend’s fall weather in this jacquard floral miniskirt and simple layers. Plus a velvet hair bow – because I can’t stop lately.
