For my second monochromatic Thanksgiving outfit I went for the classic black and white. But this look is anything but basic thanks to my crazy Proenza Schouler printed pants!

Sweater: Everlane "The Cashmere Crop V-Neck", Printed Pants: Proenza Shouler (Yoox), Shoes: Nicholas Kirkwood suede Prism pumps (NET-A-PORTER), Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture, Necklace: Pearls & Plaid (gift from Lydia), Earrings: Mejuri 'Loop' by Jamie-Lee

I knew when I bought these shorts that they would be great for year-round wear. In Summer I can pair them with tank tops, in Autumn I'll top with a sweater like this and then I can even add tights to wear them in Winter! Spring is a little trickier since people don't usually wear rusty oranges and yellow, but we'll see.

I had actually wanted to wear them to the pumpkin patch but they looked strange with my black t-shirt and pumpkin patch ready boots. But then last week I got in my Everlane cropped cashmere sweater and knew it would be the perfect fit! The shorts are tight so I like to balance them out with a looser fit top. Finish it off with some cute slide sneakers my mom gave me for my birthday and I'm ready to go anywhere!

*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.

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!

Happy Monday! Here's my wardrobe update for July! Technically two of the items were bought in June but I bought them before I went on a trip and didn't know if I would be keeping them. It was July by the time I got to try them on.

I was also super bad and bought a new camera on Amazon Prime day. I got the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. So there goes $500. But now I don't have to be nervous about using my Dad's Nikon anymore and can have a better camera on vacations. I don't take his Nikon because I'm afraid it will break on the plane and it's a bit too large to carry around when I sight-see. But this new camera should be a good mix between my small Nikon and my Dad's DSLR.

Then I did a few sponsored posts and instead of being responsible and using the money for my camera I bought one more thing in the Net-a-Porter sale, haha! Oh was an extra 20% off thanks to their Sale Must Have discount and it's a basic.

I almost made it the rest of the month but Lydia and I decided to check out Roundabout's clearance sale on Saturday and I walked out with a cashmere sweater and Proenza Schouler shorts. I had actually posted about the shorts on here back in June 2011, so it was fate!

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!

Top c/o Simple Retro, Printed Pants: Proenza Schouler (Yoox), Mules: BCBGeneration 'Beverly' (Saks Off 5th at Clinton Crossing), Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture), Sunglasses: Chanel, R2D2 Necklace c/o Kohl's

This is my attempt at making these pants work for Fall. I'm not entirely sure it worked but oh well! The fabric and bright white just don't scream Fall to me. Maybe when it's cooler I'll try it with a thick sweater to see if the contrast works better than the thin tee.
