early fall look

This weekend was beautiful so I decided to break out some new fall favorites from friends at Otte, Stuart Weitzman, Lionette by Noa Sade and Halston Hertitage. The talented Alison Conklin was nearby so we decided we'd share some of my newest go-to's with you...

The best part about this dress from Otte Signature is that it's shorter in front and falls in the back, so it's great for fall layering and the trapeze cut makes it oh-so-comfortable

Stuart Weitzman 'Highland Boots' that I brought home from the SW preview last week. Didn't think my 5'2 self could pull them off, but will be living in these.

this Halston Heritage clutch  is the perfect color for Fall. it goes with everything.

all jewels by Lionette by Noa Sade. I have no words.

So what's a fashion girl's secret to surviving New York Fashion Week? Pretty simple- Yosi Samra flats. Spend more than an hour at Lincoln Center and you'll see hordes of girls quickly slipping into their foldable flats and running to catch a cab to make their next show. Yosi Samra's flats have become a staple in my handbag (seriously, I always have a pair with me) not only because are they comfortable, but because they're incredibly chic. They come in tons of fun colors and styles, so there's seriously a pair for every outfit. a total life saver. And lucky you, they're giving one of you a major giftcard...

Yosi Samra is giving one of you a $150 giftcard to their shop! Too.good.

Switching Up Your Bedding

We've been talking with Furbish Studio about switching up our bedding. All of my personal picks are above, and don't you love the idea of mixing prints, throwing in pillows with pops of fun color and a cool quilt to top it off? This will keep things interesting in the most important room of your house. Gorgeous, no?
