*I partnered with Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets and SIMON for this post*

This past Sunday Lydia and I attended a Fall Fashion Preview at Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets. This event was a bit different from the past, we did a scavenger hunt for the latest trends, which Clinton Crossing has laid out in their Fall Trend Cheat Sheet which will be available at the outlet for free! Read on after my outfit to see what trends we found!

When you shop at Simon Premium Outlets, be sure to sign up for the Simon Savings Passport. You'll get access to coupons through the web, your phone OR their app! I didn't buy anything since we were mostly browsing for the trends BUT I will definitely be back to spend the $50 gift card Simon Premium Outlets graciously gifted us! (And I have $10 left on another gift card.)

Here's what I wore while we shopped til we dropped! (Confession: I changed into sandals after a while) I decided to bring my Proenza Schouler shorts into Fall by wearing them with a sweater. Next time I'll try them with black tights so I can wear them when it's even cooler!

Cashmere Double V-Neck Sweater: Calypso St. Barth (Gilt Groupe), Tweed Colorblock Shorts: Proenza Schouler (Roundabout), Suede Mules: BCBGeneration 'Beverly' (Saks Off Fifth at Clinton Crossing), Bag: Chloé Faye (eBay)

And on to the scavenger hunt! We were looking for trends for men and women as we shopped through the outlets and were pretty successful with everything on our list! The stores are only beginning to get in Fall items so I'm sure in the coming weeks there will be TONS of options for your Fall wardrobe update.

Timberland was having a try on event for their new Tiltson boot. I tried the burgundy and Lydia went for the black suede! Left photo by Clinton Crossing right by Lydia
Each of the boots also had a matching hobo bag!
A major Fall trend is velvet booties, this pair from American Eagle was super cute (Photo by Clinton Crossing)

Banana Republic has working girls covered with cute printed pencil skirts and fitted blazers.

Leave it to me to find the one non-printed piece at Vera Bradley. Fell in love with this bright pink backpack!
Vera Bradley also had some really cute animal print/textured bags
If I had a Fall wedding to attend I would go full on sequin with this mini dress by Parker, found at Saks Off 5th! I wanted this Sandro dress, but it was a little too expensive to justify since I don't go to many evening events.
We ended our day with brunch at Chow Food & Beverage Co.  Lydia and I shared their AMAZINGGGG BBQ Meatballs. They’re smoked pork and beef meatballs wrapped in bacon with a pineapple chipotle glaze topped with picked red onions. I had the Chicken & Waffles and Lydia chose pulled pork tacos.

Happy Friday!!! I hope everyone had a good week! I'm super nervous today because I'm hosting a styling event at the Banana Republic at Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets this afternoon. I've never done anything like this because I'm so shy, so wish me luck!

Welcome my Proenza Schouler tweed colorblock shorts to the blog!!! If you saw my monthly wardrobe update you will have heard this story already, but for those that haven't: I posted these shorts on the blog back in June 2011 as one of my favorite looks from the 2012 Resort show! A couple of weekends ago I went to Roundabout's end of season sale with Lydia and on a second look through the store I spotted these shorts peeking out and recognized them immediately.

I didn't think they were going to fit but tried them on and they fit like a glove! At "only" $57 I had to take them home. That may seem like a lot for shorts, BUT they are tweed, trimmed in leather and made in the USA. Plus, they retailed for $1600, insanity!

As a continuation from last week, here's more white!  This time my crazy Zara shorts that I usually wear super high up on my waist. Otherwise they go down to my knees which isn't a very flattering look. I wore this when the temperatures finally started to go back up again, woohoo! We've had such a weird Summer with not too many super hot days.

Before we get to my Italy outfit posts here's one from before I left. I wore this to go out to lunch with my family followed by some shopping (didn't buy anything.) I normally hate how I look in photos when I have my hair up but this time I think it looks good!

Last Sunday Lydia hosted an event at Athleta in Greenwich to help fashionable ladies get fit in style! I don't exactly work out (I take walks with my Mom when it's warm out) but I went to check out their offerings and to support her! They had quite a few cute pieces and bathing suits. But I resisted and walked out with nothing.

This is my last post for two weeks because on Sunday I'm headed off to...ITALY!!!! WOOO! I'll be back to regular posting on May 22nd, but in the meantime stay tuned to my Instagram for snaps!
