Current Favorites

A lot of change has occurred this summer. I’ve been in Vancouver, I started a new job at Anthropologie, and my style has really developed (as it usually does when you start a new retail job right before back-to-school shopping). With change, usually comes new favorite things! I’ve been experimenting with lots of different products, styles, and inspirations – here are a couple of things I’ve been loving in particular:

  1. Aritzia Bertillon Blouse – I even surprised myself when I picked up a purple top off the rack, but I’ve been getting a ton of wear out of this incredible transitional piece! The dusty purple color can bring a bit of depth to a look while its unexpected neutrality allows it to be worn with almost any other color.
  2. Free People August Catalog – You have to check out the video that accompanies this month’s catalog – it screams autumn and makes me so incredibly excited to begin preparing for those crisper days.
  3. Anthropologie Catalog – With my new job, I’ve come to appreciate Anthropologie in a totally new way, and this catalog only strengthens that admiration. Beautifully shot and styled, it’s definitely worth checking out for some prime fall inspiration.
  4. Rifle Paper Co. Notebook – I love collecting notebooks so much that I simply can’t write fast enough to fill all the ones I have. I’ve been digging this blue one in particular as my love for wearing color only grows stronger.
  5. Tocca Liliana Perfume – I’m currently loving this fragrance as the perfect scent for this summer-to-fall transition phase that we’re about to go through.
  6. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in “Hollywood” – I’ve found the perfect glam daytime color! Nude with a gold sheen across the top, this liquid lipstick has been worn many times since I got it just last week.
  7. Free People Skinny Scarf – I’ve had this for a while, I know. But I feel as if I’m always finding new ways to wear it and new looks to pair it with.

Coat, Asos / Sweater, Twik / Jeans, H&M – ripped by yours truly (similar) / Booties, Jefferey Campbell / Hat, LF (similar) / Bag, Marc by Marc Jacobs

Despite the fact that I couldn’t feel my knees by the time this shoot was over, I’m really quite in love with this look. From my new booties (which I absolutely adore, thank you Jefferey Campbell!) to the loosely tied back hairstyle, this warm, casual outfit is perfect for the quickly chilling weather. I also can’t pass up an excuse to break out my fedora, or my new comfy grey sweater. xx

The Skort 2.0 and Fluffy Knits

Jumper, Forever 21 / Skort, Zara / Boots, H&M

I’m taking the skort into winter! When I bought the interesting piece back in August, I thought ahead and decided to buy it in black rather than white. Although the rule that one can’t wear white after labor day has been overturned, you can’t argue with the fact that it might look a little weird to see someone walking around wearing a white skort in the middle of the cold season. To transition the skort, I used the two easiest methods; a sweater and a pair of tights. A comfy sweater can transition almost anything to cold weather, from a mini skirt to a pair of denim overalls.

As for the sweater, you have to be living under a rock to not notice this fluffy texture showing up in knitwear in almost every store. I recommend Topshop and H&M to get a sweater like this, despite the fact the one that I’m wearing is from Forever 21. Topshop and H&M have this knit in many basic colors and styles, where Forever 21 has a multitude of patterned sweaters. However you like your sweaters, definitely pick up one of these new winter staples! xx
