Hello again :) I just came across the most AMAZING video ever and had to share. You know how some people manage to effortlessly wear their scarves in really creative ways? Thanks to the adorable and fashionable Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook you can easily learn how to wear your scarves 25 different ways! Here’s the video. I’m slowly getting used to fall, I hate in-between weather…but here are some scarves I’m into this season…
I hate to say it but I’m beginning to feel a hint of autumn in the air! I always have such a hard time dressing in between seasons – you don’t want to look like you over-anticipated yet you don’t want to look season-inappropriate. I have an unexpected but perfect solution for summer/autumn dressing: the white crochet skirt. I have been getting a lot of use lately from one I bought a few years ago, which I never paid much attention to until this summer. I’m finding white crochet skirts are great as an in-between because they have the lightness of a white summer dress and their detailing makes them smart enough for fall dressing. Here are three options that will take you from summer through fall.

Did you check out Net-A-Porter’s Perfect 10 feature? For someone who is trying to choose quality over quantity, starting with the basic wardrobe staples is the best way to go. While I can hardly have a shopping spree on the site, it is definitely a good resource for inspiration to build up your wardrobe the right way.
Hi lovelies, after a few days off I’m now back and more refreshed than ever! Now that summer weather hit Boston out of nowhere (I’m definitely not complaining), I find myself scrambling for my warmer weather staples and wanting to add a few more… One of the classic items to have for the summer is a Jack Rogers sandal, which was made famous by Jackie O (who is undoubtedly the most stylish alumna of my prep school) during her vacations along the Mediterranean. Click and view here (I have spotted another wicker chair car!), here and here. The go-to is the Navajo sandal but I’m also digging their new version of the ballet flat. What’s your favorite, and do you have any summer items on your wish list?
I’m really loving these precious and semi-precious earrings found at Kate Spade. I like the organic, rough cut and how the stone is exposed in the prong setting. But what I like even more is the reason behind these beautiful pieces. Kate Spade has teamed up with Turquoise Mountain which trains artisans from Afghanistan to help keep the local crafts trade alive as well as instilling a sense of cultural pride. Each stone is hand-cut and set by an Afghan artisan, ensuring that your set of earrings is one of a kind. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and you’ll feel more beautiful knowing you contributed to a great cause.
I haven’t visited French Connection in a while so yesterday I thought I’d take a peek. I really didn’t see too much to be honest, but on my way out this super fun clutch caught my eye. Lately I’ve been trying to focus on the classic basics for my wardrobe but my bohemian ethnic leanings usually sneak out one way or another. The trick is to merge them seamlessly. I thought this is such a great summer accessory that can be used so many ways, I’m thinking jeans and t-shirt or simple white summer dress…
