We're getting closer to Fall, my favorite season. While I'm not ready for sweaters just yet, I can start getting into the spirit with my jewelry. Layering gold necklaces from Aurate New York is a perfect way to do that while not burning up in the end of Summer heat. After all, there's still 2 weeks until Autumn officially starts! (on my 4th wedding anniversary! Yes, we love Autumn so much we got married on the first day - although some years it's a day or two later)


I wore this on a warm early September day (aka this past Friday) and, since we're still experiencing Summer weather, I decided to celebrate the upcoming season with my color choices rather than pieces of clothing. These Proenza Schouler tweed colorblock shorts are quite an odd piece to style. I've worn them in warmer temperatures with tees and tanks but also wore them for Thanksgiving last year with tights underneath and a sweater on top. I could easily wear this on an early-Autumn day in a month with a sweater and no tights. The color palette is perfect for Fall, the colors remind me of falling leaves.

Sandals will remain in my outfits until it becomes too cold for my toes. They're my favorite form of footwear so it always takes a while for me to give them up for the rest of the year. These black leather ones can also be worn into Autumn & Winter with jeans, especially with tights or socks!

On to the main event - Pre-Fall layering! Since we can't layer our clothes, why not our jewelry? It's so easy to do with any necklaces you have. I make sure they're different lengths and also try to have one stand out from the rest. The buttery and bronzed tones of the semi-precious stones in this Destination Aura beaded necklace are perfect to carry me into those cooler months. The colors go perfectly with the colorblock shorts; they were meant to be worn together! I wore the beaded necklace with the clasp up front because I loved the detail of it.

If you're also an Autumn lover, how do you celebrate the coming season with your wardrobe choices? Do you ease in with colors or go all out and wear sweaters in September even if it's hot. (No judgment ;) )

Almost forgot about these photos from the middle of February! My parents, Christian and I went to visit my brother and his new puppy and we went to the Submarine Force Library and Museum. It's free to visit and you get to go inside the Nautilus submarine. Super cool experience. I couldn't imagine being on one of those for months on end.

It was REALLY cold and windy so Christian and I snapped these photos SUPER quickly. Can you see me wincing in pain. And my hair did not want to cooperate. But the outfit was cute so I can't not share now that I remembered they were on his phone!

Told you you'd be seeing this Autumn Cashmere landscape sweater again soon! I wish I could wear it every day, but that would be a little much don't you think? This time I wore it with my patchwork boots because the colors all match. Might be a little odd but I think it's fun! Also decided to use my fun orange Louis Vuitton bag to pull out the orange in the sweater.

Worn to run a bunch of errands last week. It was a very chilly day so Christian and I decided to take photos inside to spare our bodies from more freezing temperatures.

How perfect is the color of this sweater with my chevron faux fur vest? It's like they were made to be worn together. So funny how I always manage to have a color that matches it so well - example 1, example 2, example 3. I guess that's what happens when your wardrobe contains mostly the same colors.

I've had these boots since college and they're one of my favorite eBay finds! I was just looking for brown heeled boots and saw these for $7 and got them. Didn't think I would love them as much as I do and I almost got rid of them a couple years after I bought them because I hadn't worn them a lot. So glad I didn't! I actually found a pair on eBay if you want them too!

A cozy outfit for a cold Winter day! I try to avoid wearing coats as much as possible and doubling up on sweaters certainly helps. This is one of 2 turtlenecks I got for a steal at Boscov's back in October. I wear them around the house a lot but I think this is the first time it's been on the blog. Funny how that works, you designate something as"wear at home" so it never makes "real" outfits.

Also really enjoying the mix of teal, burnt orange and cream. Quite nice, yes?

I hardly ever wear my blazers anymore so I decided to pull one out this past weekend for no reason at all. This is one of my favorites because of the print mixing, color and the added touches of velvet. Such an amazing piece and I scored it for $188 4 years ago! And, as luck would have it, I found one for $200 on eBay if you like it!

I am still immensely proud of this shirt that I DIYed. It was inspired by Burberry Prorsum's Pre-Fall and Fall 2012 collection. I still want the adorable fox sweater from the same collection (it remains on my eBay search list.) Also, remember the first time I wore these Everlane jeans and said they would look better with no socks? I was right! Soooo much better this time.  Next time I might roll up the hem a bit too, we'll see!
