Indian Summer


When you’re having an Indian Summer (70’s in October!), you definitely don’t complain, but you do have one heck of a time trying to figure out what to wear. This look, for example… Fall on the top, summer on the bottom. Buttoned-up on the top, fun on the bottom… Same thing!

I paired one of my favorite year-round skirts with my new favorite sandals, a tissue-thin turtleneck, and a long-line vest for a look that will definitely take you from work day to happy hour without having to worry about what you’re wearing.


When you find a pair of shoes that make your legs look like they’re a mile long, you buy them. No questions asked. It’s basically science, right?

It was love at first sight when I saw these open-toed mules with a stacked heel. I was debating between the black and the natural brown, but when I put on the lighter pair, the decision was made. They’re leg lengtheners!

In my natural fashion, I’m kind of obsessed with basically everything in Kate Spade’s fall collection. This bag, these flatsthis bag, these heelsthis coatthis dress, these heelsthese loafersthis bag, these rainbootsthis dress, this bag, this dress, these flats, this clutchthis bag, these glovesthis coat, this watchthis coat, these heels, this bag, this dressthis bag, this bag, these earmuffs, and these slippers. (I should just save this list and consider my Christmas list to be done…)

      Just one question for you or Jess about this turtleneck. Being tissue (aka lightweight) are they sheer?
