Fall is hands-down my favorite season, but I’m strangely finding it hard to let go of summer this year. It seems odd to say, but even through all of the turmoil and uncertainty we’ve faced this year – in many ways I’ve had one of this best summers of my life. As Charles Dickens so eloquently put it, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”
That being said, the world keeps on spinning (both literally and figuratively), so I’m slowly but surely getting myself into a fall state-of-mind – starting with this gorgeous dress by Sachin & Babi. It’s made of a substantial cotton that’s perfect for those in-between early fall days. And the autumnal color scheme incorporates this season’s hottest combo: chocolate brown and robin’s egg blue. I’ve never been one to blindly follow trends, but I do like to keep my looks current. I love how this dress simultaneously feels elegant and timeless while still managing to be on trend.
Over the years, I’ve grown a pretty impressive summer hat collection. They’re the perfect accessory to add a little drama to an otherwise plain outfit. As I get older, I find myself being drawn to larger more over-the-top iterations. In fact, I’ve got my eyes set on this one as my next acquisition. As I found myself traveling deeper and deeper down the internet rabbit hole seeking out my perfect summer topper, I decided to share a roundup of the best of my finds at every price point. Keep scrolling for my top straw hat recommendations to round out your summer wardrobe.
I’m a dresses and heels kinda gal through and through, but every now and then I like to shake things up a bit with a jumpsuit. I used to think they were tricky to pull off without looking like an overgrown toddler. But over the years I’ve developed a real affinity towards them. The main thing is to find the style that best fits your body type. For me, that means choosing silhouettes that are either cropped or closely tapered right above the ankle. This white eyelet jumpsuit that I recently picked up from J. Crew was an instant favorite, and ever since I’ve been searching for more to add to my wardrobe. Below are a few picks that I uncovered while browsing online. Happy shopping!
