Fall Edit: Back to Basics & Layering

Screen Shot 2017-09-18 at 8.35.24 AMWhile the calendar has flipped to September, it is still in the high 80s here in DC so it is a little hard to think about bundling up in a cashmere sweater but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about what I might like for fall.

And, truth be told, and I can’t believe I am about to write this, but I haven’t seen much so far that has impressed me so I am taking it as a sign that I should be shopping my closet.

I will say, one thing I do love is the idea of jacket layering. The only picture I could find was the red coat JCrew one above. I have a huge addiction to buying coats and jackets, however, they all seem to be about the same weight, light and not really warm so I like the idea of layering a jean jacket underneath, especially if it creates a contrast between dressy and casual.

The other idea I like this fall is investing in basics. A simple yet beautifully cut blazer like the Rag and Bone one + a statement piece like the Tiffany Bracelet or the Hermes necklace – elegant, understated and yet stunning!

So, here are a few things I found and love for various reason. Definitely get samples of the lip serum and polish next time you are at Sephora and for glowing skin, I love this new Armani mask.

Let me know what’s on the top of your must have list for fall.

Rebecca Minkoff This is a great, classic bag that will never go out of style. It is also an easy way to add velvet into your wardrobe.

Sugar Lip Polish

Sugar Lip Serum

Ouai Memory Mist If you like a hairspray that keeps its hold but doesn’t make your hair stiff, this is the product for you!

AG Demin Jacket 

JCrew Eveyday Cashmere

Hermes Necklace (Tiffany has a beaded chain that is in their recent campaigns that has a beautiful toggle clasp. It is a nice less expensive version of the Hermes piece if you like that look but want to spend less. I can’t find it on the website but the have it in the stores. I think it was $325.00)

Chanel Large Zip Shopping Bag I always need at least one bag that I can carry my notebook in.

Rag and Bone Jacket This is a great way to get the polished blazer look but with the ease and comfort of a sweater. It is lightweight and perfect for travel.

Tiffany ID Bracelet  I wore this out of the store I loved it so much!
