Black & White Stripes

Vince Vest, Comme des Garçons Shirt (My husbands), Rag & Bone Shorts (less expensive version here and here), Vince Loafers, Ray Ban Aviators, Chanel Bag

I’m always borrowing things from my husband’s closet, namely this Comme Des Garcons striped tee and his J.Crew button downs. The oversized fit of his pieces make for a laid back, thrown together last minute sort of look that I love. This is more of an androgynous, minimalistic look compared to my usual colorful and feminine outfits, but it feels good to switch things up every now and then. I do love a classic black & white look and this long Vince vest will be going over and under everything this fall.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Dress (on sale, other colors here, here and here), Madewell Sandals, Clare Vivier Clutch c/o Piperlime, Ray Ban Aviators

My husband and I spent this past weekend in Madison, WI for one of his best friend’s wedding and it was my first time to the midwest. Madison is such a cute town with so much to do (thank you for all of the recommendations and sweet emails!) and we could have easily stayed a few more days to squeeze some more non-wedding related activities in. On our first night in town, we headed to the Union Terrace to meet the group for some drinks and food outside along the water. I wore this MICHAEL Michael Kors dress that was my version of casual chic for the evening. It’s currently on sale and is also available in a few other colors (classic black, navy and green) and a great summer to fall staple!

Navy Blazer

J.Crew Blazer (old, similar here & on sale), Zara Top (old, similar here), Parker Shorts (on sale), Chanel Bag, Tod’s Loafers, Thierry Lasry Sunglasses

I’ve had this J.Crew blazer in my closet for years now and it just goes to prove how timeless a navy blazer is. It pulls together even the most casual outfits and always gives it a bit of a nautical feel. I recently got J.Crew’s new fall catalog in the mail and I can’t wait for all of the pieces to hit their site soon (some have already started to trickle in here) I have my eye on a particular collection coat, so now it’s just a waiting game…!
