summer's swan song

While I'm sad to see summer go, I have to say that I am freakin' STOKED for fall. Easily my favorite time of year. The layering, the rich colors, furs (faux, of course), prints, boots, scarves. So excited.

Outfitting is sort of hanging on to the warm weather, but still incorporating some early fall pieces. It doesn't have to be awkward, although I know everyone is dying to start wearing their oversized sweaters and tights. This is the time where the sweaters are starting to come on, still with bare legs, or long pants with short-sleeves, etc. Here are some of my favorite late-summer outfitting inspirations:

Jenna Lyons 
I have a girl-crush on JCrew's creative director and style savior, Jenna Lyons, along with the rest of the world. She knows how to make style effortless.

Alexa Chung 

I'm not sure where Alexa found these amazing overalls, but I'm sure you could find some in a thrift store easily.

Kylie Minogue 

She's one that I forget about, and I'm not sure why, especially when I see this outfit. A breezy button-down in leopard print is a perfect transition piece. Not too heavy for warm weather, but a perfect fall staple as well.

Blake Lively 

A cobalt blue Chanel bag? Yes, please.

Whitney Port

Amazing pants on Whitney, who in the past, always played it so safe. I'm glad to see her being more adventurous.


  1. I'm really excited for fall, too! And a huge fan of Blake Lively!

  2. Autumn is my favourite season too!

    These are gorgeous shots, I especially love the leopard button down and the mustard coat <3
