Concrete Jungle.

For this look, I channeled my inner “grunge…” a cleaner, more sophisticated grunge, that is. The top I’m wearing is one of my favorite new, fall pieces. It’s so effortless, yet still very stylish. So, what’s not to love? The shirt can also┬ábe dressed up or down, another bonus. I opted for dressing it down, pairing the gingham blouse with skinnies, black booties, and a metallic choker. However, if I wanted to wear it to a more formal location (it’s not often that I frequent underpasses), I could pair it with a cute mini or pencil skirt. Maybe even add a leather jacket if I was feeling extra “rocker” that day. The opportunities are endless!

Falling For You.

After a sweltering summer in the Georgia sun, it’s no question why Fall is my favorite season. In my opinion, Autumn is Mother Nature’s reward for putting up with crazy humidity levels, broken air conditioning units, and overcrowded swimming pools. If colorful trees and lower thermostats weren’t reason enough to start swooning, the clothes and traditions that accompany the months of September- November will surely make you fall in love.

In honor of the first cold(ish) weekend of Fall so far, I started my morning with some cinnamon tea and an episode of Gossip Girl… nothing’s better than getting fall fashion inspo from everyone’s favorite Upper Eastsiders. However, today I decided to opt out of wearing an avant-garde headband or a pair of kitten heels+knee socks. I felt a gem-toned ensemble would be ideal, completed with cuffed jeans and booties- everyone’s favorite fall shoe. Lastly I accessorized with an Emily Charles original. This necklace is perfect for any outfit because of its neutral colors, yet it has enough glitz to stand out in an outfit.
